Since being acquired in the offseason to play as the primary backup point guard, a spot the Wizards struggled with last year, Frazier has struggled himself. He is never an efficient scorer, but is particularly inefficient this year, and an uptick in his turnover numbers is unignorable considering his narrow margins for success. Combined with being ineffective defensively given his short stature, Frazier has not helped as expected.

Nevertheless, Frazier is about to get plenty of opportunity, as John Wall will miss at least the next two weeks due to knee inflammation. This also makes gives an outside shot at low end fantasy value to third string point guard Tomas Satoransky – in the first Wall-less game so far, Frazier started and posted 11 points, 2 steals and 18.6 fantasy points in 28 minutes, while Satoransky had 4 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds and 13.6 fantasy points in 15 minutes. It’s something.

Played bigger of a role than was ideal for one of his size and talent level, Frazier nevertheless reaffirmed his credentials as a solid NBA backup point guard. Frazier’s assist to turnover was slightly greater than 3:1, and although his size will likely always make him an inefficient scorer (.504 true shooting percentage), his ability to split a defence, probe, kick and occasionally make his own floaters and pull-ups gave him some partial value on that end. Defensively, Frazier needs to be hidden, which is a problem. But that’s easier to do from the bench, which is where he should be anyway. A very good value pick-up for the Wizards and a surprisingly simple departure from the Pelicans.

Player Plan: One year and $2 million remaining. Looks like a rental, but a very good price for his services, and can be re-examined next summer.
