|2015 Regular Season|
Asik averages 7.4 points and 10.0 boards.
Asik had not played since a Nov. 14 whooping by 48 points of hapless Minnesota. French big man Alexis Ajinca, who has no fantasy value, was starting in his place.
While the offense may not always be there, Asik should continue to be a defensive force all season.
Washington will receive center Melvin Ely and a trade exception as part of Tuesday's trade, in which the Wizards will sign Ariza before sending him to Houston. The Rockets also get forward Alonzo Gee, guard Scotty Hopson and a 2015 first-round draft pick from New Orleans. Asik averaged 5.8 points for Houston, a year after averaging a career-best 10.1 points.
