    Chimezie Metu had a few nice moments on Thursday night, playing 27 minutes off the bench and scoring 10 points to go along with six boards, four assists, a steal and a blocked shot.

    This was Metu's first significant action of the NBA restart and the season and he managed to put up a reasonably solid performance. He likely won't retain a role of consequence to even put up lines like this next season.

    Chimezie Metu was up and down from the G League to the Spurs roster, but his role was limited during his time with the NBA roster as he appeared in just 15 games.

    In those 15 games, Metu averaged 2.9 points and 1.6 boards in 4.5 minutes per game. He played 25 games in the G League and had averages of 17.9 points and 9.1 rebounds on 54.3-percent shooting. He will likely remain in the G League primarily for the next few years. Therefore, Metu should remain off the fantasy radars heading into next season.

    Chimezie Metu (sore left foot) won't play on Sunday.

    Metu's presence or absence doesn't change anything for fantasy players.

    Chimezie Metu has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Wolves with a sore left foot.

    Metu is not a regular part of the rotation so far this season, only averaging 3.5 minutes per game across six contests. He is not on the fantasy radar.

    Drew Eubanks, a two-way player, will be available for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

    This move was likely made because Chimezie Metu (left foot soreness) has been ruled out. Eubanks has only played two minutes in one NBA game so far this season. He is well off the fantasy radar.

    Spurs have called up Chimezie Metu from the G League for their game against the Celtics on Saturday.

    Metu has played a total of five minutes across two games so far this season so there should be no fantasy implications here especially since the Spurs are at full health. The 2018 second round pick played 26 games in the G League last year to the tune of 14.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.2 triples, 0.7 steals and 1.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes, shooting 49.5 percent from the field and 67.0 percent from the line.

    Chimezie Metu produced 11 points, six rebounds and a block against China in an 86-73 victory on Sunday.

    Metu also hit one 3-pointer and it is interesting to note that he grabbed three offensive rebounds in just 20 minutes. He averaged five minutes over 29 games for the Spurs last season, and while he has shown his potential during the World Cup, it is highly unlikely that he has any fantasy relevance this season.

    Chimezie Metu had 15 points along with nine rebounds, two assists and a block, as Nigeria destroyed Korea 108-66.

    That was Nigeria’s first win at the World Cup but they will now move on to classification play which could help them qualify for the Olympics. Metu has shown his defensive potential in this tournament but it’s hard to see him earn minutes with Spurs this year. Al-Farouq Aminu scored nine points and added five rebounds, three assists and two blocks while Josh Okogie played only 15 minutes adding six points, three rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block.

    Josh Okogie put up 18 points, three rebounds, four assists, three triples, one steal and five turnovers as Nigeria lost to Russia 82-77.

    Okogie led the team in minutes with 28 but the 20-year old could not do enough to stop the Russian veterans. Al-Farouq Aminu dropped 10 points, five rebounds, two steals and two triples in 26 minutes while Chimezie Metu of the Spurs scored 10 points with six rebounds and a block in 21 minutes off the bench.

    Chimezie Metu (right foot) is not currently with the Spurs in Las Vegas but could rejoin the team before Summer League ends.

    Metu underwent a procedure to drain an abscess on his right foot back on June 27, so the Spurs will take it easy on the second-year forward. He's got an outside shot at earning some minutes at the back end of the rotation but there is no fantasy appeal.

    Chimezie Metu (right foot) will miss Salt Lake City Summer League and be re-evaluated in 10 days.

    Metu had a minor procedure to drain an abscess on his right foot, though he is now uncertain for Las Vegas Summer League. The big man played in 29 games last season as a rookie and was behind the eight ball after suffering a broken left wrist last July. San Antonio doesn't have a ton of frontcourt depth but it would be a surprise if Metu took on a sizable role this year.

    Chimezie Metu played a career-high 12 minutes on Saturday night, posting two rebounds and a block.

    Metu had 21 career minutes under his belt entering tonight but was pressed into duty with so many injuries affecting the Spurs. He's not a fantasy option.

    The Spurs have signed second-round pick Chimezie Metu to a three-year deal.

    Metu fractured his wrist in Summer League and is unlikely to see much action with the big club this season, but it's a nice endorsement of his potential from the organization.

    Spurs doctors have confirmed that second-round pick Chimezie Metu has sustained a broken left wrist.

    Metu hurt himself in Sunday's game but ended up finishing out the contest and was initially diagnosed with a sprained wrist following an MRI. The 6'10" big man is highly unlikely to make an impact for San Antonio this season, though the injury is not considered serious at this point.
