Marcin Gortat ties career-high with 31 points to go with 16 boards, two assists, a steal, and a block to help the Wizards ward off elimination with their Game 5 victory.
Gortat was playing on a different level on Tuesday night, posting a monster double-double to give the Wizards a fighting chance to remain in contention. Although it is unlikely he will be able to shoot 86.7 percent from the field in back-to-back games, this is the type of effort that could carry over only his teammates and give the Wizards the momentum they need to make it to the next round.

Angels RHP Garrett Richards (knee) threw five innings in a minor league game Saturday.
Richards is very close to returning to action from a severe knee injury that he suffered at the end of 2014. He threw 69 pitches of one hit, one walk, zero run ball on Saturday and is progressing well. Due to the way that the Angels schedule is set up, they won't need a fifth starter for several weeks, giving Richards a chance to jump right into the rotation without kicking any other starters out. Richards' monster 2014 breakout campaign was legit, so as long as owners drafting him are comfortable with his health and knee, he could be a nice discount on draft day. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond
