Victor Oladipo (sore right foot/ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Wizards. Oladipo will miss a second straight game due to the injury, which was suffered Thursday night. As a result, Eric Gordon will remain in the starting lineup, and Jae'Sean Tate is also worth being grabbed off of the waiver wire. Over the last two weeks, Tate has been a top-100 player in 9-cat formats.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards to a 104-91 win vs. the Celtics on Sunday, posting 35 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals. After resting on Friday night, Beal had fresh legs against Boston, knocking down 10-of-18 field goal attempts, 4-of-9 threes and a perfect 11-of-11 from the line. He managed to do that in just 33 minutes, by the way, as the Wizards were up comfortably and snapped a four-game skid behind Beal's big game. On Monday, he'll face off against his former backcourt mate John Wall who will play his first game in D.C. since being traded in the offseason.
