Description: Wizards backup power forward Drew Gooden was a cheap source of points Thursday night with Nene out due to personal reasons.
Insight: Gooden posted 13 points, five rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes of work versus the undermanned Grizzlies. He could repeat the performance Saturday if Nene doesn't return.
10/30/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Wizards power forward Drew Gooden had a big game in Nene's absence on opening night (18 points, five rebounds), but should return to his backup role against Orlando.
Insight: Nene served a one-game suspension but should resume his starting role leaving Gooden with limited minutes.
3/19/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Wizards power forward Drew Gooden has averaged 27 minutes, 19.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.5 threes and 1.0 steals his last two games.
Insight: Gooden has scored in double figures in five of his last seven games and has been a pleasant surprise for the Wizards after signing a contract in late February. Washington is his 10th NBA franchise since he entered the league in 2002.

Insight: The move makes sense now that Nene is out with a sprained MCL. Gooden obviously won't be able to fill Nene's shoes but he could give the Wizards some depth behind Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin. Outside of very deep leagues, fantasy owners shouldn't be pursuing any of these players.

Description: The Bucks are parting ways with Drew Gooden. SOURCE: Bucks on Twitter
Insight: Gooden was amnestied on Tuesday. Assuming nobody makes a bid on him, he'll officially become a free agent on Thursday. It seems like he's been around forever but Gooden is still only 31. Though 2012-13 was a down season for the 6-foot-10 forward/center (just 3.3 ppg in 16 appearances), Gooden was very productive in 2011-12, averaging 13.7 ppg and 6.5 rebounds per contest for Milwaukee.
4/6/2012 8:29:00 PM
Description: Drew Gooden will sit out again Friday night. Gooden is still recovering from a back injury. He missed Wednesday night's game against Cleveland as well.
Insight: Gooden was listed as probable for this game earlier in the day, so this is a bit of a shocker. Larry Sanders (3 ppg, 2.8 rpg) should get a chance at center tonight in Gooden's absence.
4/5/2012 1:55:00 PM
Description: After missing Wednesday night's game against the Cavaliers with a back injury, Drew Gooden expects to return Friday against Charlotte.
Insight: It's been a renaissance year for Gooden, who is tallying his highest points per game average (14) since 2007-08. He should have a strong game against the struggling Bobcats Friday night.
2/21/2012 11:15:00 AM
Description: Drew Gooden is headed for a second opinion on his injured wrist.
Insight: This is not good news for Gooden owners, but Ersan Ilyasova stock should go through the roof. Ilyasova is averaging 20.3 ppg and 14.3 rpg over the last four games.
4/9/2011 10:32:00 PM
Description: Drew Gooden logged a shocking triple-double on Saturday with 15 points, 13 boards, 12 assists, and two blocks.
Insight: If you've been following the headlines about Gooden, not only have we been calling him a must-add player, we've been having fun with the actual headlines. The Bucks only play twice more this season and there's a good chance will have to come up with something worse than this headline.
4/5/2011 9:08:00 PM
Description: Drew Gooden kept the ball rolling on Tuesday with 18 points, four boards, four assists, a steal, and a block in 26 minutes.
Insight: We're going for the record for corny Gooden headlines and with the way he is playing, that record will be broken. He is a very strong add and it's worth mentioning he plays on a light Saturday for daily owners.
4/3/2011 12:51:00 AM
Description: Drew Gooden had his third good game in a row with 12 points and 12 boards in 30 minutes.
Insight: Gooden has more than proven he should be owned in most leagues with his recent showcase of how he can still log double-doubles. He looks healthy and while he could go down at any moment, he is probably worth a shot for owners seeking some boards to go with double-digit point totals.
3/30/2011 9:15:00 PM
Description: Drew Gooden came out of nowhere for a gigantic 22 points, 11 boards, a steal, and a block in 25 minutes.
Insight: Gooden looked great tonight and was all over the court at both ends. He is on the radar in most leagues and deep leagues should give him some serious thought. He should be cut at the first sign of trouble though.
12/28/2010 6:03:00 PM
Description: He is expected to miss tonight's game against the Bulls. He is listed as day-to-day on the Bucks official injury report.
Insight: Gooden hopes to be back on January 1st against the Mavericks. His numbers have dropped this year and the plantar fasciitis is most likely the reason. (
12/16/2010 1:49:00 AM
Description: Drew Gooden found his way back onto the fantasy radar with 20 points, 11 boards, a a block in only 25 minutes of action.
Insight: The Bucks are a mess of a rotation and we've seen Gooden dominate like tonight, yet we've also seen him go weeks without even flirting with a double-double. He's only a deep league option for now.
11/21/2010 4:13:00 AM
Description: Drew Gooden had one of his better lines of the season by dropping 16 points, 16 rebounds, a steal, and a block in 41 minutes.
Insight: The 41 minutes certainly catches the eye and Gooden put the exclamation point on being picked up. He was serviceable for the past week or so and fantasy owners should know that a 16-16 from a proven player warrants a pick up.
