|Wagner finished Tuesday's 122-112 win over Washington with 15 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and three rebounds across 14 minutes off the bench.|
The Scoop:The fifth-year center didn't get onto the court at all in the last two games, but he took full advantage of his opportunities Tuesday with some impressive per-minute production. Wagner showed he can provide useful numbers while Wendell Carter was on the shelf, but in his current role, he's a risky fantasy option. Mar 22 4:49 ET -
|Moritz Wagner: Back to bench|
Wagner will return to the bench Saturday against Miami, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
The Scoop: This was an expected move from Orlando with Wendell Carter (hip) returning from a three-game absence. Wagner was a quality streaming option in Carter's absence, scoring in double-digits in all three games with a healthy supply of rebounds and steals.

|Moritz Wagner: Another strong outing sans Carter|
Wagner totaled 18 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 134-123 loss to the Bucks.
The Scoop: With Wendell Carter (hip) sidelined again, Wagner drew a second straight start and posted a well-rounded outing versus Milwaukee. The Michigan product has scored in double figures in three consecutive appearances and is averaging 15.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.3 assists in 23.3 minutes during that stretch.

|Moritz Wagner: Starting Sunday|
Wagner will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Portland, with Wendell Carter Jr. (hip) unavailable.
The Scoop: Wagner has played well in a starting role this season, owning averages of 13.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.1 triples, 1.0 steal and just 1.6 turnovers per contest on 51.5 percent shooting from the field and 91.3 percent at the stripe, so he makes for an attractive streaming option.

|Moritz Wagner: Gets extra minutes Monday|
Wagner provided 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes off the bench in Monday's 101-93 win over the Pelicans.
The Scoop: Wagner cleared the 20-minute mark for the second game in a row, though starting center Wendell Carter's early foul trouble in both contests played a significant factor in Wagner received extra playing time. Prior to the last two games, Carter hadn't played fewer than 29 minutes in any of his eight appearances in February, so fantasy managers shouldn't count on Wagner sustaining his recent uptick in minutes. Wagner continues to look like a more reliable option in 14- or 16-team category leagues rather than shallower formats.
