Trevor Ariza SG/SF WAS 19 Hrs
Trevor Ariza shot 6-of-19 against the Nuggets on Monday, scoring 14 points with seven boards, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
He set a season high in shot attempts tonight and he's had quite the green light from downtown lately, averaging 6.9 attempts from deep over his last seven. That's really nothing new for Ariza with his season average of 6.4 per game. He's worth owning in all leagues despite his tendency to have off shooting nights like this one.

Trevor Ariza scored 22 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including five threes) with 12 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks in Friday's overtime loss to the Bucks.
Ariza's dream season continues and the only thing will stop him from producing at an early round level next to John Wall will be an injury. And with Martell Webster looking like he's going to miss some time, he could be ready to go nova.

Trevor Ariza shot 8-of-9 from the field for 24 points with six boards, two assists and made all four 3-point attempts in 31 minutes against the Magic on Monday.
He was 5-of-6 from downtown and scored 24 points in his last outing, so he's ridiculously hot. Ariza is up to 43.0 percent from downtown on the season, which would obliterate his previous career best of 36.4 percent last year. He's a must-start player right now and his two steals per game give him tremendous value.

Trevor Ariza hit 7-of-10 shots and five 3-pointers for 24 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in Saturday's win over the Hawks.
Ariza is officially back after his hamstring injury and combined with Martell Webster for 43 points and 10 3-pointers. Both players are must-own with Bradley Beal sidelined, but it's important to note that the Wizards only have two games this week.

Trevor Ariza returned from his hamstring injury on Tuesday, playing 32 minutes with a line of 13 points, seven boards, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer against the Lakers.
This likely went better than many expected after missing five games with the strained muscle. Ariza takes 6.3 attempts from downtown per game and he's always been adept at racking up the steals. With Bradley Beal out, Ariza should get all he can eat at small forward. He's worth owning in all standard leagues.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) will start at small forward for the Wizards against the Lakers on Tuesday.
He returned to practice on Monday after missing five games due to a strained hamstring. Ariza was putting up big numbers before he went down and playing 35.1 minutes per game. He might not play that allotment of minutes for a while with how well Martell Webster played, but Ariza still needs to be picked up in all leagues.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) returned to the Wizards' practice court on Monday.
Ariza has missed five games after hearing a 'pop' in his hamstring, but he avoided any major damage and could be in the lineup for Tuesday's game. He's filling it up for fantasy owners with 14.8 points, 2.5 three-pointers, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game, so make sure he's not floating on the waiver wire.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.
Martell Webster has been very effective in the starting role over the last three games, averaging 15.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 3.0 triples in a whopping 40.7 minutes. He should be in just about all lineups tonight. As for Ariza, this will be his fourth DNP and he has no timetable to return. His 35.1 minutes per game will likely take some sort of hit considering how great Webster has been, but he's still worth stashing in most leagues.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) will miss his third consecutive game on Wednesday.
He won't suit up against the Cavs and he should be considered as questionable for Friday's game against the Raptors. It was Martell Webster's world on Tuesday with a 17-point, five-trey game on Tuesday, so he serves as another terrific play tonight against a sub-par Cleveland perimeter defense.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) and Al Harrington (knee) will both sit out Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves.
Ariza doesn't expect to miss much more time, but his absence leaves Martell Webster as the Wizards' starting SF again on Tuesday. It's been a nice start to the year for Ariza, who was averaging 14.8 points, 2.5 threes, 6.6 revounds and 2.1 steals in 35 minutes per game. He could return to action during road games on Wednesday and Friday.
