Report: Washington Wizards Forward Davis Bertans to Sit Out NBA Restart

Washington Wizards rising star Davis Bertans reportedly will sit out the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.

Bertans, 27, had a breakout campaign this season.

The forward put up career-highs across the board with 15.4 points, 4.5 boards and 1.7 assists per game this season. In addition, he knocked down 200 triples in 54 games this year.

The Wizards hold the No.9 spot in the Eastern Conference standings. Since the Wizards are 5.5 games behind the Orlando Magic for the final playoff slot with just eight regular season games left, they are highly unlikely to make the postseason.

Now, with Bertans’ decision to sit out, it appears even more improbable for the Wizards to squeeze in. After all, Bertans is Washington’s second-leading scorer behind star Bradley Beal this season.

Although the journeyman won’t play in Orlando, Fla., he is bound to earn a large contract in free agency this coming offseason.

The 2019-20 season is set to restart in late July.
