Drew Gooden PF/C WAS 1 Month

The Wizards signed Drew Gooden for the remainder of the season on Tuesday.

Gooden is coming off a strong game with 21 points and nine rebounds on Saturday, but in his previous game he was scoreless in seven minutes. His typical production will fall somewhere in between most games, making him an unlikely source of value in standard leagues.

Drew Gooden came off the bench and hit 8-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to a season-high 21 points, nine rebounds and a block in Saturday's win over the Nets.

This came out of nowhere and it was his first 20-point performance since 2012. Gooden has been coming on a bit and may have fully arrived on Saturday. We profiled him in this week's Waiver Wired column and Gooden looks like an interesting waiver-wire grab if you have a player you've been wanting to drop. But he also played just 15 minutes on Friday, so this could easily just be a one-hit wonder for Gooden. Trevor Booker is going to take a hit if Gooden can find a way to keep it going.

Drew Gooden played just seven minutes on Friday with Kevin Seraphin (knee) back with just two rebounds to show for it.

Gooden's 15 minutes per game got cut in half with Seraphin back on the floor and the only silver lining for deep league owners that made an add is that Bradley Beal's injury could open some minutes up. Feel free to grab even a low-level free agent given Gooden's low upside, anyway.

Drew Gooden is expected to remain with the Wizards for the rest of the 2013-14 season.

Gooden is expected to remain in Washington after his current 10-day contract expires on March 18 and will provide the Nene-less Wizards with frontcourt depth. "A lot of teams wanted a stretch four, so I'm like, 'I have to re-invent myself.' So I think you guys are seeing a re-invented Drew Gooden." While we admire his ability to speak in the third person, Gooden's fantasy value is solely limited to deeper leagues at this point.

Drew Gooden scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting with eight rebounds and two blocks over 18 minutes in Wednesday's loss.

Gooden is good for something similar on most nights and we're having a hard time seeing Kevin Seraphin (DNP-CD) unseating the veteran at this stage in the game. Gooden will be a poor man's version of Nene for the rest of the season, and since returning to action this season he has returned low-end value in 14-16 team formats.

Drew Gooden is enjoying his mini career renaissance with the Wizards.

After playing just 16 games last season, Gooden is making the most of his late-season opportunity with the Wizards. "Confidence is back & I'm at ease. People say I'm playing with the house's money. I kind of got that feeling going right now," Gooden said. Gooden has averaged 8.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 13.8 minutes per game over his last three and is proving that he can make a difference in deep fantasy leagues going forward.

Drew Gooden scored 15 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including a three) with three rebounds and no other stats in 17 minutes.

The low minute totals are going to cause some abnormalities in his stat lines, but it's becoming increasingly clear that he's going to be productive in some way, shape or form on the court. Over his last three games he has averaged 13.8 minutes, 8.3 points, 0.3 treys, 3.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 66.7 percent shooting from the field.

Drew Gooden kept up his productive ways on Saturday vs. the Bucks with 13 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

He did all of this in just 17 minutes of action and he was able to build off a 12-point game on Wednesday. Gooden's minutes haven't really taken off and they're probably not going to at age 32, but he still knows how to get free in the low post and is a nice fit around all the Wizards' 3-point shooters. His last two games came against the Bucks and Jazz, so his potential owners might want to take that into consideration before adding him. Plus, Kevin Seraphin (knee) should be back at some point.

The Wizards have signed Drew Gooden to a second 10-day contract, as expected.

The veteran has gained a foothold in the rotation with Nene (MCL) out of commission and Kevin Seraphin (knee) still day-to-day. He scored 12 points in 19 minutes of action on Wednesday, which probably represents his ceiling, so don't give him much thought outside of the deepest leagues.

Drew Gooden played a surprising 19 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday, making 6-of-7 from the field for 12 points,

He didn't score at all in his first two games and played just a combined 13 minutes. Gooden was making some nifty cuts and was able to get easy buckets against the leaky Jazz defense, which is not an adept area of Trevor Booker's game. He was a headache to own two seasons ago, so it would take a special kind of crazy to add him in even the deepest of leagues.
