    Nik Stauskas played 11 minutes and hit one 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

    As the great Gucci Mane once said, "If you don't got no sauce, then you lost. But, you can also get lost in the sauce." The Cavaliers only played Sauce Castillo 11 minutes in this one and they lost by 27. If you tried to rely on Sauce's 354/358 value in 8/9-cat formats, then you would certainly be lost.

    Nik Stauskas (low back contusion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Sauce Castillo was also questionable before being ruled out of Sunday's game. Even when he's played recently, he hasn't made enough noise to warrant consideration in standard leagues.

    Nik Stauskas (back bruise) will not play in Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    Stauskas is a bit part for Cleveland anyway, so his absence won't lead to anything for fantasy purposes.

    Nik Stauskas (lower back bruise) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    Stauskas has not been a major part of the Cavs rotation this season and if he were to miss the game, it would leave more minutes for the Cavs' reserve backcourt players.

    Nik Stauskas dropped 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting to lead all Cavs reserves in Monday's win over the Pistons, adding two rebounds, two assists and two 3s.

    There was a ton of garbage time in the equation here, so don't expect this level of production in his next game. Stauskas remains an option only in very deep leagues right now.

    Nik Stauskas logged 23 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 139-148 3OT loss to the Nets and produced seven points (2-of-4 shooting), one steal and one trey.

    This is not bad for his second game in a Cavs uniform but Sauce Castillo needs to bring much more than this if he's to find his way into fantasy-relevant circles this season. Leave him on the wire for now.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavs have signed Nik Stauskas for the remainder of the season.

    Stauskas was bounced around from team to team during the trade deadline and finally found a landing spot. The Cavs have plenty of guards and Stauskas will likely play a very limited role off of the bench.

    The Pacers will waive both Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, per J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star.

    The Pacers helped Houston trim its tax bill and received a second-rounder in the process. Stauskas might get a look as some emergency shooting depth, while Baldwin might draw interest from a team looking to develop a point guard.

    Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin have reportedly been traded to the Pacers.

    The Rockets will also send Indiana a second-round pick. These two have now been dealt twice in the last two days, and three times overall this season. From Portland to Cleveland to Houston and now Indiana, it's been quite a handful of days. There's really no fantasy value here, though Stauskas may be used to help the Pacers space the floor. Houston cuts some more salary and will open up roster spots to go after players in the buyout market.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Wade Baldwin IV and Nik Stauskas will be headed to the Rockets as part of the three-team deal that nets the Cavs Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight and a protected 2019 first-round pick.

    Stauskas may have some appeal as an extra 3-point shooter, which coach D'Antoni has a fondness for but it has been confirmed that the Rockets are still studying whether both he and Baldwin are part of their plans. No need for hasty moves at the moment as Sauce could be wearing yet another jersey before the deadline.

    Nik Stauskas (trade) will not play on Tuesday night.

    The Cavs likely want Stauskas and fellow newcomer Wade Baldwin to get at least one practice in before hitting the floor. Both are deep-league names to watch, with Stauskas potentially holding 3-point appeal if the Cavs do clear the deck by Thursday's trade deadline.

    Nik Stauskas will be a member of the Cavs once Sunday's trade is finalized.

    Stauskas got off to a fine start to the year in Portland but fell out of the rotation over time. He's on his fifth team in five seasons now and can't seem to find a home despite offering an in-demand skillset. Stauskas figures to hold 3-point specialist value in deeper formats and may offer up more than that. He's a speculative add in 20-team leagues if you're expecting Alec Burks and Jordan Clarkson to get moved before the deadline.

    The Blazers have ruled Nik Stausks (left knee) out of Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Stauskas has been in and out of the rotation lately after a decent start to the year. He's only a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
