The Washington Wizards made multiple roster moves Sunday as they waived injured forward C.J. Miles, while center Anzejs Pasecniks was signed to a multi-year extension.

In addition, ESPN reported that center Thomas Bryant will return after missing six weeks with a right foot stress reaction.

Miles, 32, appeared in just 10 games off the bench this season before a season-ending wrist injury on Nov. 26. He scored 6.4 points per game with 1.2 assists in 16.1 minutes of action.

Pasecniks, 24, was the 25th overall selection in the 2017 draft by the Orlando Magic and played for the Capital City Go-Go in the G League before signing a two-way contract with the Wizards on Dec. 18.

In 13 games with Washington, Pasecniks is averaging 8.2 points with 6.2 rebounds, including a 17-point game at Detroit on Dec. 26 and a pair of games with at least 10 rebounds.

Bryant, 22, was scoring 13.9 points with 8.5 rebounds over 18 games before he was injured. The Utah Jazz's second-round selection in 2017 started every game he played in this season and is expected to return to his starting role in the near future.
