Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 4 months ago

Webster managed only 3.3 points (26% FG, 23% 3Pt, 75% FT), 1.4 rebounds, 0.5 assists, and 0.2 steals in 11 minutes per game during 32 regular season games in 2014-15.

Webster missed the first two months of the season recovering from surgery after suffering a herniated disk in his lower back. In 2012-13 and 2013-14 he held a prominent role with the Wizards, playing 29 and 28 minutes per game respectively. However, the addition of veteran Paul Pierce and breakout year for sophomore Otto Porter helped spelled the end of Webster's place in the regular rotation. He appeared in just one postseason game, playing four minutes in the team's series-clinching blowout win versus the Raptors. Webster is on the books for a combined $11.4 million over the next two seasons.

Webster scored six points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

Webster saw added playing time due to Bradley Beal leaving the game with a right ankle sprain. Should Beal miss time, Webster and Rasual Butler will pick up his minutes, but both are only options in deep leagues.

Webster (knee) is available for Wednesday's game at Phoenix.

After colliding knees with the Lakers' Jeremy Lin on Tuesday, Webster left the court and didn't return. It's uncertain if he'll actually take the court Wednesday, as he received two DNPs in five games leading up to Tuesday's contest.

Webster left Tuesday's game early after colliding with Jeremy Lin and hurting his knee.

Webster attempted to stay in the game, but he inevitably was taken off the floor by the Wizards' training staff. Webster doesn't have a history of knee injuries, and it may have just been a one-time thing, but we'll update as more information becomes available. If Webster is unable to play, Otto Porter Jr. will likely take over his minutes off the bench.

Webster didn't complete a minute of action Thursday in a loss to the Thunder, checking into the game very briefly and failing to do anything on the stat sheet.

Webster has been back from injury since Dec. 30, but has only played double-digit minutes in two games this season and has yet to score more than five points in a game. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter Jr. are taking up the majority of the minutes off the bench at small forward, which has taken Webster's role away from him in Washington.

Webster (back) scored just three points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT) in 14 minutes of action in his first playing time of the season Tuesday.

The Wizards were down big to the Mavericks in this one, so Webster wasn't put in the greatest situation to start his season. Over time, expect him to gain a larger role in the offense off the bench. In 78 games for the Wizards last season, Webster averaged 9.7 points, 1.2 assists and 2.8 rebounds. His next chance to see game action is Friday versus the Bulls.

Webster (Back) could possibly return during Washington's upcoming five game road trip, head coach Randy Wittman said in an ESPN report.

Because his return during the long road trip was qualified as "possible", there still isn't a ton of clarity as to when he'll return. Even when he does return, there's no guarantee that he'll contribute enough to be a viable fantasy option.

Webster (back) has been ruled out for the Wizards' Christmas Day matchup against the Knicks, CSN Washington reports.

The Wizards were optimistic Webster would be ready to make his season debut at some point this week following his return from the third back surgery of his career, but the nature of the team's schedule has prevented the swingman from logging a full-contact practice. Until coach Randy Wittman is able to gauge Webster's health during one of those sessions, he'll remain glued to the bench.

Webster (Back) did not play Tuesday night against the Bulls despite being a nearly full participant in Monday's practice.

Although he has been getting close to a return to game action, Webster was unable to go Tuesday against the Bulls. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter could see a decrease in minutes once Webster is healthy enough to return.

Webster (back) went through most of Monday's practice and is nearing a return to game action.

Webster is yet to play this season after undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk back in June. The 28-year-old will likely need to get a few more full practices under his belt before the team considers bringing him back, but once he's ready, he should step in and contribute right away. Last season, Webster averaged 9.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game while shooting nearly 40 percent from three. Upon his return, he'll compete with Otto Porter and Rasual Butler for time off the bench.
