Drew Gooden PF/C WAS 8 Months

Drew Gooden scored three points in 20 minutes off the bench on Friday, making 1-of-5 field goals with six rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

Gooden hasn't played more than 20 minutes in the Wizards' past four games. His run of ultra-efficient games was due to end, and it's no surprise that it happened vs. the Pacers' elite defense. Nene (sprained MCL) may return to action in early April, casting a further pall on Gooden's fantasy outlook, and he's safe to cut for a free agent with more upside.

Drew Gooden's hot streak continued with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting in Sunday's road loss the Nuggets.

Mid-range jumpers are Gooden's bread and butter play, but he's shown impressive range this season with 0.5 threes per game on 45.5 percent shooting beyond the arc. He added only three rebounds in 18 minutes of action and the low playing time is a concern, but he remains a viable option with three games on the Wizards' schedule this week.

Drew Gooden received a $15,000 fine from the NBA for "committing an unnecessary act by clamping" Nick Young's arm and "attempting to throw him to the floor."

That's not a very common infraction to be fined for, but it sums up what Gooden did for the most part. He won't be suspended and continues to be a pleasant surprise for the Wizards this season.

Drew Gooden was ejected for a flagrant-2 foul against the Lakers on Friday, finishing with 11 points and 11 boards in 19 minutes.

He hooked arms with Nick Young as the major infraction. Young called Gooden's action "uncalled for" and he also called Gooden "over-aggressive." Gooden hasn't really been in the making friends business in the NBA, but he's playing extremely well for the Wizards and is worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot like he is right now.

Drew Gooden kept his momentum going on Thursday vs. the Blazers with 18 points, nine boards, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

He and D.J. Augustin are probably two of the most surprising players to make serious contributions on playoff teams after being picked up off the scrap heap this season. Gooden has scored at least 18 points in three consecutive games and is definitely on the radar as a pickup in standard leagues with Marcin Gortat (back) going down tonight.

Drew Gooden hit 7-of-10 shots and two more 3-pointers for 18 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss.

He was unconscious in this one and is now averaging 19.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.5 3-pointers over his last two games. We have no idea how long he's going to be this hot, and he even had to pull a 'Jordan shrug' after one of tonight's triples. If you have someone you want to cut, picking up Gooden might work out.

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.
