    Jordan Bell's 2019-20 was marred by a right shoulder injury that couldn't get over, causing him to be non-factor in fantasy, tossed around four teams like a hot potato.

    Bell's second year in the league was a fantasy flop. He landed a two-year deal with the Cavs over the hiatus after passing through the Wolves, Rockets and Grizzlies this season. A nagging shoulder sprain limited Bell to averaging just 8.8 minutes per game with averages of 3.2 PPG, 2.8 RPG and 0.3 BPG on .522 shooting from the field. This resulted in Bell ranking at 418/433 on per-game value and 398/401 on total value. The Cavs are currently still stacked with players in their frontcourt, so there's still big question mark as to what kind of role Bell will fill moving forward.

    Shams Charania reports that Jordan Bell has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cavs.

    It's been quite the fall from grace for Bell, who started Game 1 of the Finals last season but has bounced around through the Grizzlies, Rockets and Wolves organizations this year. A rebuilding Cavs squad should give him a chance at playing time but Cleveland is very deep up front, even with Tristan Thompson and Ante Zizic potentially leaving in free agency. Dynasty GMs should view this as a positive, as at least Bell is now on a team, but his upside has been largely theoretical. Bell can rack up fantasy numbers but can't seem to stay on the floor.

    The Grizzlies have waived Jordan Bell.

    Bell was traded from the Rockets last month, but this news should not have much fantasy impact.

    The Rockets have flipped Jordan Bell, who was acquired in the massive Robert Covington deal, to the Grizzlies in exchange for Bruno Caboclo and the second round picks in 2023.

    Bell went from buried on the Wolves bench to potentially an important role as a backup big for the Rockets to buried on the Grizzlies bench in a days work. Bell can be left on the waiver wire with this news or dropped if you picked him up after the earlier trade.

    Bruno Caboclo has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Jordan Bell and the right to swap second-round picks in in 2023.

    Caboclo goes from buried on the Grizzlies bench to potentially 20 plus minutes a night as the Rockets backup C with the team fully embracing small-ball. Caboclo is currentlu sidelined with a bone bruise in his knee, but he is reportedly on track to return shortly after the All-Star break. He is a name to monitor in deeper leagues with his newfound home.

    Robert Covington is expected to be available to play for the Rockets on Thursday vs. the Lakers.

    The trade to send Covington and Jordan Bell to the Rockets has been finalized and both players are expected to be available to play for the Rockets on Thursday. Covington should see increased value as a perfect fit in Houston's system and Bell may only see limited minutes as the Rockets seem to be committed to playing small and having P.J. Tucker play most of his minutes at the center position.

    The Rockets will receive Jordan Bell and a second-round draft pick as part of Tuesday's Clint Capela trade.

    The Rockets are said to be looking for a rim protector, especially in the wake of trading Capela, but Bell may be looking at backup center minutes for a team that's going to trend very small barring another big acquisition. He's averaging just 8.7 minutes this season but does have 0.4 blocks in that time, and the per-minute numbers have never been up for debate. If Bell can get on the floor for 20 minutes a night, which is a huge "if," then he might be a solid specialist play. Only time will tell but he's not a bad speculative add in 20-teamers or so.

    Karl-Anthony Towns will not play on Thursday vs. the Warriors as he continues to deal with a sprained left knee.

    Thursday's game marks KAT's ninth consecutive absence. Gorgui Dieng should continue to be started in all fantasy formats for as long as KAT remains out while Jordan Bell and Naz Reid should see additional opportunity and can be used as low-cost options in DFS.

    Karl-Anthony Towns is officially questionable to face the Warriors as he continues to nurse a sprained left knee.

    KAT has missed eight consecutive games and the Wolves have only been able to win two of those contests. They desperately need their All-Star center back in order to have a chance at a playoff berth. Gorgui Dieng will continue to be relevant in standard leagues for as long as KAT remains out while Jordan Bell, Noah Vonleh (questionable) and Naz Reid should also see an increase in playing time.

    Noah Vonleh (left gluteal contusion) will miss Wednesday's matchup vs. the Bucks.

    Vonleh will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday. Gorgui Dieng, Jordan Bell, Keita Bates-Diop and Naz Reid will all see an increase in minutes with the Wolves down six bodies. They can all be looked at in DFS while Dieng will consistently provide standard league value for as long as Karl Anthony-Towns remains sidelined.

  • Gorgui Dieng
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Gorgui Dieng had another productive outing on Friday, playing 24 minutes and collecting 18 points, six rebounds, four 3-pointers and a block in another start for Karl-Anthony Towns.

    This was a career-high in triples for Dieng, and it's time to scoop him up as a short-term value. He was a legitimate top-75 player a couple years back and should be able to deliver top-100 returns for as long as KAT is sidelined. It was all hands on deck tonight as Jordan Bell saw 16 minutes (four points, eight rebounds, one block) and Noah Vonleh got dusted off for 20 minutes (nine points, seven rebounds, one steal, one block), but Dieng is the clear player to look at in this scenario.

    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Gorgui Dieng got the start with Karl-Anthony Towns inactive for Wednesday's contest, putting up 13 points, eight boards and an assist.

    Dieng didn't have a huge impact on the game, but was a more than capable replacement for Karl-Anthony Towns. He is possible streaming option whenever KAT is forced to sit. Jordan Bell only saw 11 minutes of action and ended with six points.

    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns will not suit up against the Pelicans on Wednesday due to a knee injury.

    Coach Ryan Saunders told the media that Towns would sit out of Wednesday's contest due to a knee injury. This will be the first game Towns has missed in December and the third game he has missed so far this season. Gorgui Dieng started in the previous two games that he missed. Jordan Bell could also see more minutes off the bench.

    Jordan Bell checked in for 21 minutes on Friday night, delivering 12 points and five boards in an OT loss to the Thunder.

    Bell hadn't topped 17 minutes this year before tonight and had combined for just under 11 minutes over Minnesota's last four games combined. This one comes out of nowhere and did feature Andrew Wiggins sitting out, so take it with a grain of salt, but Bell looks to be ahead of Noah Vonleh in the rotation and is someone to monitor in deep formats.

  • Treveon Graham
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Treveon Graham (left forearm contusion) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game versus the Suns.

    Graham was a late addition to the injury report to an already filled Timberwolves' injury report. Covington and Jake Layman have already been ruled out and Josh Okogie is being considered a gametime call. If Graham sits we could see Noah Vonleh and Jordan Bell get extended run.
