Gooden got the start against the Sixers on Wednesday and was able to put up four points, five rebounds, and five assists during 25 minutes of action.

Gooden replaced Nene Hilario in the starting five but Hilario was just resting, so Gooden is expected to assume his normal role off the bench against the Nets on Friday. Although an official designation won't likely be given until closer to tipoff.

Gooden is in line to start Wednesday against the 76ers J. Michael of Comcast SportsNet reports.

In five starts this season, Gooden has averaged 11.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 28 minutes per game. He put up 16 points, three rebounds, two assists, and three three-pointers in Saturday's win against Memphis. Gooden has the potential to perform well against the 76ers but would still be a risky start given his inconsistent production and minutes.

Gooden will start at power forward Friday against the Knicks.

Gooden will start in place of Nene Hilario (rest), and is expected to receive a good chunk of minutes along with Kris Humprhies. However, he'll likely return to the bench for the team's next game as Hilario should return to the lineup.

Gooden grabbed a double-double with 15 points, 17 rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 39 minutes of action Friday against the Hornets.

Gooden is averaging 8.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 0.8 steals over the last five games. His performance Friday was an anomaly, many thanks to Marcin Gortat dealing with foul trouble. Gooden is an afterthought in fantasy as long as he's limited to a bench role, so owners can ignore him unless an injury were to occur to Gortat or Nene.

Gooden had 10 points on 5-13 shooting Sunday to go with six rebounds and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench.

Gooden has started to get a decent bit of minutes lately, averaging 21.8 minutes over his last five. Over his last four, he's averaging just under 10 points to go with 4.25 boards. With Kris Humphries out, Gooden could continue to see a decent chunk of minutes with average production.

Gooden is starting Saturday against the Kings, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Gooden will draw his second consecutive start with Nene away from the Wizards due to personal reasons. In Thursday's nod against the Grizzlies, Gooden posted 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 27 minutes.

Gooden started Thursday's game with Nene (personal reasons) out. He finished the game with 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 27 minutes.

Unless Nene's absence somehow becomes longer, this does nothing for Gooden's value. In 33 games off the bench this season, Gooden is shooting 36.4 percent from the floor and averages just 3.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.

Gooden will start Thursday's game against the Grizzlies, the Washington Post reports.

With Nene away from the team for personal reasons, Gooden is entering the starting five at power forward. Since the break, Nene has averaged 4.9 points (on 35 percent shooting) and 4.9 boards in 17 minutes across eight games.

Gooden came off the bench for the Wizards on Wednesday with Kris Humphries (back) out, and picked up a double-double in 29 minutes by scoring 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and grabbing 12 boards.Gooden has now scored double-digit points in back-to-back games, but he just won't receive enough playing time to be a fantasy option in most leagues. After the All-Star break, there's a good chance that Humphries returns. When Washington's frontcourt is healthy, Gooden has rarely played this season, often getting DNPs.
