  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Season ends early

    The Wizards announced Monday that Coulibaly will miss the remainder of the season due to a right wrist fracture.

    Coulibaly missed Sunday's 130-104 loss to the Celtics with what the Wizards had listed as a right wrist sprain, but follow-up tests apparently revealed a more serious injury. The No. 7 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft will ultimately miss the final 15 games of the 2023-24, finishing his rookie campaign with averages of 8.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks in 27.2 minutes per contest over 63 appearances (15 starts) on 43.5 percent shooting from the field. The 19-year-old wing remains a raw prospect, and his efficiency progressively worsened throughout the course of the campaign as he took on added volume, but he has all the tools and a strong foundation to be a valuable wing in the league. Look for him to push for a regular 30-plus-minute role with Washington in 2024-25.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't play Tuesday

    Coulibaly (wrist) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Coulibaly is slated to miss a second straight game due to a right wrist contusion and will be joined by Deni Avdija (knee), Marvin Bagley (back), Tyus Jones (back) and Landry Shamet (calf) on the sidelines. Given all the absences, Jules Bernard, Johnny Davis, Jared Butler, Patrick Baldwin and Anthony Gill should all remain in Washington's rotation for at least one more game.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't play Sunday

    Coulibaly (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Coulibaly and Kyle Kuzma (shoulder) have been downgraded from questionable to out and will join Landry Shamet (calf), Deni Avdija (knee) and Marvin Bagley (back) as inactive. Given all the absences, Patrick Baldwin, Jared Butler, Eugene Omoruyi and Johnny Davis are all candidates for increased roles.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Added to injury report

    Coulibaly is questionable to play Sunday versus Boston due to a right wrist sprain.

    Coulibaly hasn't missed a game since March 1, but his status will need to be monitored in advance of Sunday's 6 p.m. ET tipoff in the second leg of a back-to-back set for the Wizards. The rookie extended his streak of double-digit scoring performances to six in Saturday's 127-98 loss to Chicago, finishing with 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-8 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Strong individual outing

    Coulibaly racked up 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-8 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 127-98 loss to the Bulls.

    Coulibaly notched his fifth consecutive game with double-digit points, marking his third such streak of the season. He has limped to just 32.0 percent shooting on 1.6 threes per game over that span, however, and the 19-year-old continues to lack a true scoring niche to rely on.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Solid performance Tuesday

    Coulibaly supplied 11 points (3-12 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 109-97 loss to Memphis.

    Coulibaly produced on both ends of the floor, albeit with some poor shooting thrown in. He remains a raw talent, especially on the offensive end. It makes sense for the Wizards to hand him a sizeable role down the stretch, making him worth a look in standard leagues.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Soaks up heavy minutes in return

    Coulibaly (pelvis) tallied seven points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 33 minutes Monday in the Wizards' 127-115 loss to the Jazz.

    Coulibaly took back a starting role and drew major minutes in his return from a three-game absence due to a right pelvic contusion, but a lowly 9.6 percent usage rate coupled with poor efficiency from the field resulted in a rather muted fantasy line for the rookie. Though the 19-year-old should get all the run he can handle over the final month of the regular season, he'll likely need to ramp up his usage before warranting more attention in 12-team leagues.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Starting in return

    Coulibaly (pelvis) will start Monday against the Jazz.

    Landry Shamet will head to the bench to make room on on the top unit for Coulibaly, who missed the previous three games with a bruised pelvis. Over his previous three starts that weren't affected by injury, Coulibaly had averaged 7.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 30.0 minutes.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Not on injury report

    Coulibaly (pelvis) isn't listed on Washington's injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Coulibaly returned to practice Sunday and will end his three-game absence Monday. The rookie carved out a large role in February, averaging 7.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 29.0 minutes over nine appearances (five starts) before suffering the pelvis injury.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Ramping up

    Coulibaly (pelvis) was active at practice Sunday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    The extent to which Coulibaly practiced Sunday is unspecified, but the 19-year-old appears to be on the mend from a bruised right pelvis which has cost him Washington's past three games. Monday against Utah represents his next opportunity to take the court.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Remains out Friday

    Coulibaly (pelvis) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Clippers.

    Coulibaly will miss a third straight game due to a right pelvic contusion. Landry Shamet should continue to start, while Corey Kispert sees increased playing time off the bench. Coulibaly's next chance to suit up will come Monday in Utah.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Out again Thursday

    Coulibaly (pelvis) will remain out for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Coulibaly will be out for a second straight game due to a right pelvic contusion. Corey Kispert and Landry Shamet saw elevated roles in Tuesday's loss to Golden State while Coulibaly was out, but both may see their minutes get cut down a bit Thursday since Deni Avdija (heel) is returning from a three-game absence.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't play Tuesday

    Coulibaly (pelvis) will not play Tuesday against the Warriors, Chase Hughes reports.

    Coulibaly took a nasty fall Sunday night and is day-to-day with a pelvic contusion. Meanwhile, Deni Avdija (heel), Corey Kispert (illness) and Landry Shamet (neck) are all questionable. The Wizards could potentially be shorthanded, so they may have to use a committee approach to soak up the available minutes.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't return Sunday

    Coulibaly is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cavaliers due to a right pelvis contusion.

    Coulibaly take a hard fall early in the first quarter and stayed in the game momentarilly before eventually making his way to the bench. The rookie was ruled out shortly thereafter, finishing the game with three points, one rebound and one assist in five minutes. His status for Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors is now in question.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Decent output in blowout loss

    Coulibaly had 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 31 minutes during Friday's 147-106 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Coulibaly has started in each of Washington's last three games, and there's a strong chance he'll stay in that role for the foreseeable future given Washington's rebuilding process and the fact they've gone 9-47 this season. Coulibaly has shown flashes of his talent and the ability to stuff the stat sheet when given extended minutes, something that was noticeable in this loss as well. He's averaging 10.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game when deployed in a starting role.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Starting Thursday

    Coulibaly will replace Jordan Poole in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

    Poole is getting benched, and with the Wizards sitting on a record of 9-45, it's possible this could be a change that sticks to give Coulibaly some developmental minutes over the second half of the season. Coulibaly offers decent upside as a producer of defensive stats, so he's worth a speculative add in most leagues. Joining him in the first unit for Thursday's game will be Deni Avdija, Tyus Jones, Kyle Kuzma and Marvin Bagley.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Nabs another start

    Coulibaly will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Coulibaly steps into the place of Kyle Kuzma, who's sidelined due to illness. In four starts this season, Coulibaly is averaging 12.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 combined steals/blocks.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Back to second unit

    Coulibaly will move back to the bench for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Marvin Bagley (back) is returning from his injury and will jump back into the starting five. Despite the move to the bench, Coulibaly figures to play a key role the rest of the season. He had a terrific showing Friday against the Celtics, scoring 21 points (6-18 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals over 33 minutes.
