Gortat will play for the Polish national team this summer, the Washington Post reports.

Gortat finished the 2014-15 season having played in all 82 games. He averaged 12.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.3 blocks in 30 minutes per game. That was the least number of minutes he'd averaged per game in over three seasons. Coach Randy Wittman often opted to play Gortat limited minutes in the fourth quarter, so if the team decides to lean on him more in crunch time next season, it's possible Gortat's minutes could take a hike north again.

Gortat was limited in foul trouble and ultimately fouled out in 32 minutes of action. He's been very effective in the postseason so far, but Tuesday's performance was a weak one for the center. Expect him to bounce back in Game 3.

Gortat scored 23 points (10-11 FG, 3-4 FT) with 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

It's his third straight games with double-digit rebounds, although Gortat scored just 14 points combined in the previous two games. He should be able to put together another big night on Friday against the woeful Knicks frontcourt.

Gortat is averaging just 14.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals, and 1.2 blocks over the last five games, and his lack of rebounding is starting to become very concerning to owners. He's still worth owning in standard leagues, but he's no longer considered a must-own player in 8-man leagues.
