Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 2 Days
Kevin Seraphin (knee) will miss a fifth straight game on Wednesday but he does not expect to need surgery.
He didn't do much during Tuesday's practice and his knee remains swollen, clouding his status for the near future. With Nene also on the sidelines the Wizards will continue to lean heavily on starters Marcin Gortat and Trevor Booker, with help from backups Chris Singleton, Al Harrington and newcomer Drew Gooden.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 3 Days
Kevin Seraphin (knee) was present at Wizards' practice Tuesday.
Seraphin didn't fully participate in Tuesday's practice and declared himself day-to-day. We'll update his status in advance of Wednesday's game against the Jazz, but Trevor Booker would again get the start and play close to 30 minutes if Seraphin is unable to play for the fifth consecutive game on Wednesday.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 4 Days
Kevin Seraphin (knee) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.
This will be his fourth game out of the lineup and the timing couldn't be worse with Nene (knee) going down at the same time. Trevor Booker will get the start and should see close to 30 minutes of action tonight. He's a solid play in daily formats, but his potential owners should remember the Grizzlies have fantastic interior defense.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 6 Days
Kevin Seraphin (right knee) will sit out again vs. the 76ers on Saturday.
With Nene (knee) out for 4-6 weeks, Seraphin's temporary absence leaves Washington heavily reliant on starters Marcin Gortat and Trevor Booker, with help from Al Harrington and Chris Singleton off the bench. Booker is averaging a paltry 4.0 points over the past two games, but if there were ever a time to roll the dice in deeper leagues it would be against the Sixers' paper-thin frontcourt.

Kevin Seraphin (knee) will miss Thursday's game against the Raptors.
This news comes as no surprise as Seraphin missed Thursday's shootaround, but it's nice to get word nice and early before lineups lock. Trevor Booker will benefit from Serephin's absence Thursday night and should make for a decent play based on the minutes he'll see alone. He only scored three points to go along with seven rebounds in 30 minutes Tuesday night, but the Wizards don't have many other frontcourt options since they're already missing Nene.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 8 Days
Kevin Seraphin (knee) was not present at Thursday's shootaround.
The good news is that Seraphin was healthy enough to travel with the Wizards to Toronto, but his absence at shootaround leaves his status for Thursday's game against the Raptors in doubt. Trevor Booker's 30 minutes of action with Seraphin out Tuesday night only amounted to three points on 1-of-5 shooting, so the door is open for Seraphin to play himself into a starting role if he can get healthy. If he's unable to play Thursday night, Booker would again be the de facto power forward to own for the Wizards.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 10 Days
Kevin Seraphin (knee) will miss Tuesday's game against the Magic.
With Nene out for four-to-six weeks, there had been quite a bit of speculation in fantasy circles on whether Seraphin or Trevor Booker would be the player to own, but this news certainly settles that debate for at least one game. Booker will get the inside track on Nene's job by starting for the Wizards against Orlando Tuesday, but Seraphin should still remain a solid pickup as long as he can get healthy quickly.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 11 Days
Kevin Seraphin played 17 of the last 18 minutes of Sunday's game against the Cavs, finishing with six points, six boards, and one steal in 25 minutes.
He replaced Nene at the time of his injury and would have played the entire game had the Cavs been able to keep it close. The Wizards have taken a lot of time developing Seraphin in the past two seasons, but he's yet to come around. Seraphin has not started any games this year while Trevor Booker has 19 starts. Chances are Booker takes over as the starter and should be picked up first, but it's not a bad idea to grab Seraphin.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 25 Days
Playing 23 minutes off the bench on Sunday, Kevin Seraphin led all Wizards reserves with 10 points and eight rebounds.
It's notable that Seraphin played this many minutes despite the fact that Washington's frontcourt was healthy. His increased role reduced Trevor Booker to an afterthought and deep-league owners should keep a close eye on Seraphin in case he maintains a 20+ minute role after the All-Star break.
Kevin Seraphin PF/C WAS 1 Month
Kevin Seraphin scored 19 points off the bench on Monday with Trevor Booker (personal) out, hitting 7-of-10 shots to go with five rebounds in 23 minutes.
Seraphin has had a few nice outings lately but he's still only averaging 20.4 minutes per game over his last three contests and Booker's eventual return will help keep him in check. Deep league owners may want to keep one eye on Seraphin but that's about it for now.
