    Alfonzo McKinnie (left foot plantar fasciitis) will not play on Saturday against the Heat.

    McKinnie will miss his second straight game but has only played 14.3 minutes per game this season so there should be no fantasy implications anyway. The the addition of Andre Drummond and with Kevin Porter expected to get more run going forward, McKinnie's role may decrease even further.

    Alfonzo McKinnie (left foot plantar fasciitis) will not play on Friday.

    McKinnie inked a four-year deal with the Cavs after getting waived by the team initially, though he's still only getting 14.3 mpg on the season. That's not enough to spread around the rotation and anyone to emerge as a fantasy option.

    Alfonzo McKinnie has agreed to a four-year, $7.4 million deal with the Cavs.

    McKinnie was waived by the Cavs prior to his guarantee date this season but ended up back with the team on a pair of 10-day contracts. Most guys coming off that track get a two-year deal with the second one not guaranteed, so this is a nice get for McKinnie. His role doesn't figure to support fantasy production, even in the deepest of formats.

    The Cavs have officially announced the signing of Alfonzo McKinnie to a second 10-day contract on Thursday.

    This was the expectation from Wednesday, and the Cavs made it official this morning. McKinnie will return to his role off the bench until the beginning of February. The Cavs may choose to sign him for the rest of the season after this one expires. McKinnie is not a recommended fantasy play.

    Alfonzo McKinnie is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Cavs on Thursday.

    McKinnie has played solid bench minutes over the last month. He's not a recommended fantasy play but does provide some rebounding.

    The Cavs opted not to sign Alfonzo McKinnie to a second 10-day contract.

    The decision on McKinnie was a bit of a surprise, as he had become a regular part of the rotation over the past week, while he averaged 6.5 points and 4.9 rebounds in his last eight appearances. Coach John Beilein suggested he will utilize guard Dante Exum on the wing more often to help fill McKinnie’s old role.

    Alfonzo McKinnie corralled a double-double on Friday night, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and a block against the Grizzlies.

    McKinnie's on a 10-day deal with the Cavs but has played well, making a start and now producing this solid line. He was let go for cap reasons and it would be surprising if he didn't lock down an NBA gig for the rest of this year, whether that's in Cleveland or elsewhere. Regardless, he's not much of a fantasy option.

    The Cavs have signed Alfonzo McKinnie to a 10-day contract.

    The team just waived McKinnie on Monday to prevent his contract from becoming fully guaranteed, and now they'll basically have 20 days (assuming he gets another 10-day after this one) to decide whether he's worth keeping around all year. There's no fantasy impact.

    Dante Exum will not play in Tuesday's game against the Pistons due to illness.

    This is a bummer as Exum is coming off a career-high 28 points in Sunday's loss to the Wolves. The good news is that it isn't another injury for the oft-injured guard. The Cavs play the Pistons again on Thursday. Matthew Dellavedova and Brandon Knight will see additional minutes.

    The Cavs have waived Alfonzo McKinnie and Tyler Cook.

    McKinnie only played 11 minutes per game this season while Cook got into just six contests for the Cavs. The moves leave the team with two open roster spots.

    Alfonzo McKinnie came off the bench to score 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting in addition to six rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes in a 105-123 blowout loss to the Knicks on Monday.

    Cedi Osman shifted to the four with Kevin Love out, opening up some extra minutes for McKinnie. Love said he expects to play in the Cavs next game, but this is a reminder that the former Warrior could put up some numbers should Love get traded and the Cavs lean toward tanking. Osman ended up with five points, eight rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes on the night.

    Alfonzo McKinnie played just two minutes and provided no stats in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

    When McKinnie joined the Cavs, there was reasonable hope that he would be a contributor to a rebuilding team. After all, some of his most recent NBA games were starts in the Finals. But it would appear that McKinnie will be little more than the last guy off the bench at this point.

    The Cavs have claimed forward Alfonzo McKinnie after he was waived by the Warriors.

    McKinnie appeared in just five games with the Warriors but is hoping to prove his worth in a new organization. It's difficult to envision him having much fantasy impact in 2019-20.

    The Cavaliers have reportedly discussed the possibility of signing Alfonzo McKinnie off of waivers.

    McKinnie was just let go by the Cavs to make room for Marquese Chriss. Currently, the Cavs have Cedi Osman at the three with no direct backup at the position. Cleveland would be an ideal landing spot for McKinnie to re-establish himself as an NBA player, but the presence of high usage players in the backcourt as well as John Beilein's focus on player development are two factors working against him. Even if he's ultimately signed, he's off the fantasy radar.

    The Warriors will waive Alfonzo McKinnie, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    It's been quite a fall from grace for McKinnie, who was initially projected as the opening night starter at small forward after playing a solid role for the Warriors last season. Ultimately he was undone by having a non-guaranteed contract. He figures to land on his feet, while Golden State's wing rotation gets even thinner. Jacob Evans, Jordan Poole and Glenn Robinson III are going to get more minutes, while this move also means that Marquese Chriss has almost surely made the final roster.
