2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bryant inked a new three-year, $25 million deal with the Wizards in the offseason to remain with Washington. He was effective during his first season in DC, starting in 53 of 72 appearances and playing 20.8 minutes per contest, averaging 10.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.2 blocks. The Wizards' frontcourt was hectic last season, with the trio of Bryant, Ian Mahinmi and Bobby Portis splitting minutes at center with Dwight Howard out of action. With Howard and Portis off the team this season, Washington has committed to Bryant as the starter at center. It would be reasonable to expect Bryant's production to grow if he secures more minutes and takes on a larger role. He averaged 18.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.2 combined blocks/steals per 36 minutes last season, giving him big upside for the upcoming season. Read Past Outlooks

Nice effort vs. Embiid
CWashington Wizards
August 5, 2020
Bryant posted 19 points (8-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and one assist across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 107-98 loss to the 76ers.
ANALYSIS
Bryant was able to put together efficient offense, rebound well and rack up defensive stats against one of the best centers in the league in Joel Embiid, which is certainly an accomplishment even in a loss. It's the first time in Bryant's career that he's posted those numbers. The performance was also his third straight double-double.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Bryant appeared in 38 games for the Wizards during the 2019-20 season. He set new per-game career highs in points (12.1), rebounds (6.8), assists (1.9), threes (0.6) and steals (0.4). Bryant shot 59.9 percent from the field, a career-high 40.7 percent from three and 73.7 percent from the free-throw line. He set new single-game career highs of six assists and four blocks. His other single-game season highs were 23 points, 12 rebounds, three triples and two steals. Bryant's 23-point game was also arguably his best all-around performance of the season, and it occurred Nov. 27 against the Suns. He shot 9-of-11 from the field, 2-of-2 from three and 3-of-3 from the free-throw line while also providing nine rebounds and five assists. Bryant had six performances with at least 20 points, nine performances with at least 10 rebounds (eight were double-doubles) and four efforts with five-plus assists. He also had 11 games with at least one steal and 20 performances with at least one block. In the 10 games that Bryant saw at least 30 minutes, he averaged 17.2 points on 11.7 shots, 9.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.2 blocks.

2018

Bryant played in 72 games and made 53 starts during his first season with the Washington Wizards. He finished the season by starting the final 10 games. Bryant averaged 10.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. On Dec. 22 he scored a career-high 31 points in a triple-overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns. In the game Bryant went a perfect 14-for-14 from the floor. That performance is tied for the fourth-most field goals made without a miss in a game in NBA history. Only Wilt Chamberlain has converted more field goals without a miss in an NBA game. On March 27 Bryant collected a career-high 19 rebounds, again against the Suns, as part of a 124-121 win. Over the course of the season, he led the Wizards in total rebounds (454) and blocks (67). Bryant finished the year with the fourth-highest field-goal percentage in the league (.616) and the highest two-point field-goal percentage (.685).

2017

After two seasons at the University of Indiana, Bryant declared himself eligible for the 2017 NBA Draft. He was selected in the second round (42nd overall) by the Utah Jazz. He was then subsequently traded to the Los Angeles Lakers along with Josh Hart (pick No. 30) in exchange for Tony Bradley (pick No. 27). The rookie appeared in 15 games for Los Angeles and 27 contests for the G League South Bay Lakers. With L.A., Bryant averaged 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds over 4.8 minutes per game. Bryant made his NBA debut on Dec. 23 during a four minute appearance in a home loss to the Trail Blazers. With South Bay, Bryant posted 19.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 blocks per G League contest. On Dec. 15, the 6-foot-10 big man tallied 32 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for South Bay in a loss to Westchester. Bryant's best NBA game came on Apr. 11. He delivered six points, six rebounds, two blocks and one assist in a 115-100 win over the Clippers. The Los Angeles Lakers finished 35-47 and did not qualify for the playoffs.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Bryant was an early entry for the 2017 NBA Draft following a two-year collegiate career with Indiana. In his final season with the Hoosiers as a sophomore, Bryant averaged 12.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 blocks across 28.1 minutes. At 6-foot-11, with a 7-foot-6 wingspan, Bryant has the size that NBA teams covet, but he was fairly raw coming out, which resulted in him falling to the Lakers with the 42nd overall pick. Bryant does, however, have a solid jump shot and can get it done from the perimeter. He shot 55 percent from the field and a respectable 38 percent from deep during his final year at Indiana, which evidences his ability to stretch the floor. Questions about his athleticism, his ability on the defensive end and his abundant turnovers ultimately led to his fall in the draft and he'll need to address those issues before he gets extended run at the next level. The Lakers already have Brook Lopez and Ivica Zubac at center, leaving minimal minutes for Bryant. That likely means Bryant will spend plenty of his rookie season developing with the team's G-League affiliate.
