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 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.
