News: Washington forward Chris Singleton, who had been away from the team on personal leave, was available on Monday against Charlotte, reports the Washington Post. Singleton missed Saturday's game due to a family matter.
Analysis: Singleton has not seen many minutes lately for the Wizards as he's not a contributing member of the rotation. He has low-end Fantasy value in all formats.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton was ruled out for Saturday's contest against the Suns due to a personal matter, according to team's official website. There has been no timetable announced about his return.
Analysis: Singleton has been buried on Washington's bench for most of the season and he has only appeared in four of his team's last eight games. With season averages of 4.0 points and 3.2 rebounds, Singleton should continue to be ignored in all formats at this point in the season.
News: Wizards small forward Chris Singleton saw 20 minutes on the floor Wednesday as Washington took down New York. Singleton only missed one shot over five taken on the night as he went 1 for 2 from 3-point range and finished with 10 points. He grabbed three rebounds and added a block and an assist.
Analysis: Singleton has been in double figures twice in his last three games as he has seen more of the floor lately. He's contributing, but he doesn't really do enough consistently to matter outside the deepest of Fantasy leagues.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton remained glued to the bench for the fourth time in five games Tuesday vs. Dallas. In fact, Singleton has logged just six minutes in the Wizards' last five games. He appears buried in coach Randy Wittman's doghouse, but Singleton is hopeful he will work his way back into the Wizards' rotation. Its been stretches like this, early in my career before. I just take from that, Singleton said, per The Washington Post. Ive just been learning. Still trying to support my team and do what I can do to get on the court. Wittman said Singleton is just the odd-man out. I mean, right now, theres not enough minutes to play everybody. Cant play everybody. I think you guys think we should play 15 guys sometimes, Wittman said. Youve got Nene, Kevin (Seraphin), and Emeka (Okafor), whos playing probably the best stretch hes played and Jan (Vesely). Somebodys got to sit. Cant play them all.
Analysis: Wittman seems to be using Singleton's benching as a way to motivate the second-year forward. Hes basically just looking for more consistency on the court," Singleton said. "Wants my energy to be up, every time I touch the court and just go out there and play hard." It could be even tougher for Singleton to get back into the mix once Trevor Ariza returns from a strained left calf. Singleton was in the starting lineup earlier this season, but while he is buried on the bench, Fantasy owners can leave him off rosters.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton earned his first start of the season in Washington's upset win over the Heat Tuesday night. Singleton responded to his extra minutes by finishing with nine points and nine rebounds in the 105-101 win on 2 of 7 shooting from the field. He also added three assists and one rebound to his stat line while logging a season-high 35 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Singleton has been seeing around 15-20 minutes off the bench most nights and entered Tuesday's contest averaging 5.0 points and 3.6 rebounds on the year. While his length and defensive prowess make him a favorite of coach Randy Wittman, Singleton doesn't really excel in any one category for Fantasy purposes. Without the promise of regular playing time and production, owners should leave Singleton on the waiver wire in most formats at this point in the year.
News: Washington forward Chris Singleton played well over 22 minutes on the court Wednesday in the Wizards' first win of the season. Singleton helped Washington take down Portland as he scored eight points on 3 of 5 shooting. He missed his only 3-point attempt but grabbed five rebounds and added an assist.
Analysis: Singleton had a big double-double last Saturday against Charlotte but has scored 10 points and grabbed nine rebounds in two games since combined. He is not a consistent contributor for Washington and that limits his Fantasy value to only the deepest of leagues.
News: Wizards small forward Chris Singleton endured a tough shooting night, but was able to get to the free throw line early and often against the Bobcats Saturday night. He finished with 13 points on 3 of 11 shooting in a 108-106 double-overtime defeat. He knocked down 7 of 10 free throw attempts and had a chance to give the Wizards its first victory of the season, but missed a game-winning free throw attempt in overtime. Singleton chipped in with 12 rebounds, four steals and an assist in 33 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Singleton has been held under single figures scoring in all but two of his first 10 games this season and has not been able to get to the charity stripe as much thus far. At this point, he is too inconsistent for owners to trust and has marginal value in the deepest of Fantasy formats moving forward.
News: Washington small forward Chris Singleton had a big fourth quarter for the Wizards in an overtime loss at Boston Wednesday. Singleton scored 14 bench points as he went 6 of 10 from the field over 25 minutes. Singleton added five rebounds, three steals and two assists in the losing effort.
Analysis: Singleton had gone 2 for 7 in his first game this season and hadn't seen minutes since. He should get a little more run after Wednesday's performance. Still, he won't be consistent enough for use in most Fantasy formats.
News: After starting 51 games during his rookie campaign, Wizards forward Chris Singleton came off the bench in Tuesday's season opener against the Cavaliers. He scored four points with four rebounds in the 94-84 loss. He went just 2 for 7 from the field, including missing his lone attempt from downtown, while playing 17 minutes. Singleton also chipped in with two steals and two assists in the defeat.
Analysis: Singleton averaged just 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds while seeing nearly 22 minutes per game last season but should be able to increase his production as long as he can improve on the 37 percent he shot from the floor. Keep an eye on his progress early on as the 22-year-old appears to still have some decent upside. Singleton should be owned only in the deepest of Fantasy formats at this point, however.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton remains in the starting lineup, and while he is there more for his defense than anything, he had a solid game on Sunday against the Raptors, scoring 15 points before fouling out in 34 minutes. He shot 5 of 8 from the field and was perfect on four attempts from three-point range, while also adding eight rebounds in a 99-92 loss.
Analysis: Singleton had one of his better offensive games on Saturday night, but those have not come very often for the 22-year-old. His defensive prowess continued to earn him minutes, but he is averaging just 4.6 points on the season on 36.1 percent shooting from the field. Fantasy owners should continue to leave the rookie on the waiver wire in the majority of formats at this point in the season.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton was able to find his scoring touch during Saturday might's contest against the Trail Blazers. Singleton finished with 12 points in the 110-99 victory, on 5 of 8 shooting from the field. He went 2 of 4 from downtown and also added seven rebounds and two assists, while logging 30 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Singleton had one of his better offensive games on Saturday night, but those have not come very often for the 22-year-old. His defensive prowess continued to earn him minutes, but he is averaging just 4.0 points on the season. Fantasy owners should continue to leave the 22-year-old on the waiver wire in the majority of formats at this point in the season.
News: Wizards forward Chris Singleton was able to show off some of his offensive skills during Tuesday night's contest against the Bucks. Singleton finished with a career-high 16 points in the 119-118 defeat, on 5 of 7 shooting from the field. He went 2 of 4 from downtown and also hauled in nine rebounds to go along with three assists, two blocks and one steal, while logging 40 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Singleton continues to start for the Wizards, but that is because of his defensive prowess. However, the rookie was able to show off his offensive skills against Milwaukee and also managed to fill up the stat sheet. While it was nice to see Singleton finally contribute, until he does proves he can produce on a regular basis, owner should leave him on the waiver wire in most formats.
News: Wizards F Chris Singleton has been back in the starting lineup for the teams last two games, however he hasnt done much with them, as he scored just 10 points combined after a six-point game on Wednesday against the Knicks. He was just 2 of 5 from the field, however he did grab eight rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes as the Wizards lost 107-93.
Analysis: Singleton has really as a rookie, as he is scoring just 3.9 points per game on 40.4 percent shooting in 18.8 minutes per game. Unless he sees a major increase in production and minutes moving forward, owners should leave the rookie on the waiver wire in the majority of formats moving forward.
News: Wizards F Chris Singleton was once again not much of a factor during Monday night's contest against the Bulls. Singleton was held scoreless in the 98-88 loss, missing on both of his shot attempts from the field. He did not contribute any other stats, while logging just eight minutes off the bench. Singleton has failed to score in three of Washington's last five contests.
Analysis: Singleton has really struggled since getting moved back to the bench as he has scored a combined six points in the five games since making the switch. He is seeing just 13 minutes per game over that that stretch, while shooting just 22 percent from the field. Unless he sees a major increase in production and minutes moving forward, owners should leave the rookie on the waiver wire in the majority of formats moving forward.
News: Washington forward Chris Singleton tied a season high on Friday night against Denver with 12 points. He shot 5 for 8 from the field, connecting on two shots from downtown. Singleton added three boards and two assists in his 16 minutes on the court. The Wizards would end up losing the game, 108-104.
Analysis: Singleton continues to start over Rashard Lewis, but is playing less minutes than the veteran. Over his last five games, Singleton is averaging just 4.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in around 17 minutes of court time. Despite his starting role, Fantasy owners should continue to view Singleton as a low-end forward option in deeper leagues.
News: Washington SF Chris Singleton got the start on Sunday against Minnesota with Rashard Lewis sitting out with a knee injury. Singleton did not shoot well with his 40 minutes on the court, however. Singleton went just 1 of 8 from the field and scored three points. He added seven rebounds, an assist, a block and a steal.
Analysis: Singleton played well on Friday against the Knicks as he shot 5 of 8 from the field and hit two 3-pointers to score 12 points. Singleton added seven rebounds, two blocks and three steals over 27 minutes. Singleton had played well with minutes this season, but couldn't take advantage of an opportunity on Sunday. He certainly has the ability to overtake a struggling Lewis in the starting lineup, even when Lewis is healthy. For now, however, Singleton remains with just low-end Fantasy appeal outside the deeper formats.
News: Wizards rookie F Chris Singleton had the best game of his young career on Friday, scoring 12 points and grabbing seven rebounds in 27 minutes, all career highs for him. He also continued to live up to his reputation as a strong defender, blocking two shots and getting three steals, but it wasnt enough as the Wizards lost 99-96 to the Knicks.
Analysis: The book on Singleton since college has been that hes a defense-first forward who would have to develop his offensive game to survive in the pros, and that has mostly held true in his time so far. However he is shooting 53.8 percent from the field and from three-point range so far, so his offensive game has translated, albeit in very limited opportunities. The Wizards arent asking very much from the rookie on offense, however, so he remains waiver-wire fodder in all Fantasy formats.
News: Rookie F Chris Singleton, the Wizards second first-round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, has stepped right into the rotation, averaging 24 minutes-per game through three contest, including 24 in a 102-81 loss to the Bucks on Friday. He scored three points in the loss on one-of-three shooting while adding a steal and two rebounds.
Analysis: The book on Singleton since college has been that hes a defense-first forward who would have to develop his offensive game to survive in the pros. While he has made half of his shots so far as a pro, he has only taken 10 in three games, as the Wizards arent asking much from him. Because of this, hes not a useful Fantasy option in any format.
News: Wizards rookie F Chris Singleton logged the third-most playing time on the team in the 103-78 preseason opening loss to the 76ers. In that time, he scored five points on two of seven shooting, while adding three rebounds, two steals and a block.
Analysis: The book on Singleton since college has been that hes a defense-first forward who would have to develop his offensive game in the pros. Through one preseason game, that certainly held true, as he struggled to score efficiently, but made his presence known on the defensive end. He is a decent option in long-term keeper Fantasy leagues, but should not be targeted on Draft Day in yearly leagues.
News: Wizards first-round pick Chris Singleton, the No. 18 selection in the 2011 NBA Draft, has reached an agreement with Washington on the first contract of his career. He was their second first-round pick in the draft. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but it will be a four-year deal with a club option for the third and fourth years, as is typical for rookie deals.
Analysis: Singleton is known more for his defense at the small-forward position than for his offense. Unfortunately, defensive stoppers aren't valued much in Fantasy basketball, so he'll have to work hard to earn himself the attention of Fantasy owners with his offense. He is probably not worth much more than a glance in yearly leagues, but he is worth drafting in the late rounds in keeper formats on Draft Day.
News: Washington took Florida State junior forward Chris Singleton with the 18th pick in the first round of the NBA Draft on Thursday. The 6-foot-9 Singleton left the Seminoles after his junior year. He averaged 13.1 points and 6.8 rebounds in 28 games. He missed six games when he fractured his right foot in February. Known as a defensive specialist, Singleton recorded a triple-double against North Carolina-Greensboro with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 steals. It was the 24th triple-double in ACC history - and the first with 10 or more steals. Grunfeld said he was surprised that Singleton was still available with the 18th pick - and so was his new forward. "To tell you the truth, I didn't expect me to be around that long," Singleton said in a conference call. "I feel like my value is higher than where I got picked."
Analysis: Singleton will have to prove he can play offense as well as his defense for Fantasy owners to count on him. He is only worth drafting in deep category-based seasonal leagues, but he should be taken with a mid- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper formats and an early-round selection in rookie-only drafts.
