Rockets forward Ray Spalding will miss Wednesday's game with the Spurs due to a left calf strain.
Spalding was recently claimed off waivers by the Rockets but now finds himself on the injury report. He's not worth drafting in standard leagues.

The Rockets claimed Ray Spalding off of waivers.
Spalding will compete for the Rockets this preseason but may not make the final roster. The Rockets still have both of their two-way slots available which is something they might offer to Spalding. Several NBA teams have shown interest in Spalding. He is currently not on the fantasy radar but the Rockets are a good landing spot for the forward.

The Hawks announced on Tuesday morning that they have requested waivers on forward Ray Spalding.

The Hawks are saving a roster spot for Vince Carter according to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.
With two open roster spots, the Hawks are apparently reserving one of them for Vince Carter while the other is expected to remain open to start the season in order to help facilitate trades to help acquire future draft picks. Carter is still unsure if he wants to return to Atlanta for an NBA-record 22nd season as he doesn't want to ride the bench but says he will figure something out, "…hopefully, within the coming days." If Carter doesn't return, Ray Spalding and Marcus Derrickson would be the current competitors for that 14th roster spot.

Ray Spalding is expected to sign a partially guaranteed deal with the Atlanta Hawks.
Spalding will take on the team's 14th roster spot, giving him a chance to make the squad once training camp rolls around. He has had two unmemorable stints in Dallas in Phoenix to start his career, and doesn't figure to get much burn in his next one with Atlanta.

The Suns will decline their team option on Ray Spalding, who will be a free agent.
Spalding made some starts for the Suns down the stretch but did not have the looks of a player that the Suns would use long-term. His close to the year should give Spalding a shot at landing with another NBA squad, at least.

Ray Spalding scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks on Tuesday.
Spalding drew another start but didn't do much as the Suns opted to let Jamal Crawford have the night. He was nothing more than an insurance policy for the Suns at the forward spot this season.

Ray Spalding drew his first career start on Sunday night but was fairly quiet in his 24 minutes, posting nine points, four rebounds and two steals.
Spalding couldn't replicate Friday's 21 & 13 outburst, but we were hoping for more than this with so many other Suns on the shelf tonight. He's fine to keep using through the end of the season.

Ray Spalding chipped in a double double with 21 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and three blocks on 10-for-13 shooting on Friday.
Spalding got the starting job tonight with Richaun Holmes missing the game with a left ankle sprain. Not only was he able to post a double double, but the six defensive counters makes him an interesting big man to stream if Holmes misses any more time.

Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans.
Holmes was previously labeled probable but his absence means the short-handed Suns will have to dig deep to find a warm body to start next to Dragan Bender. That could mean Ray Spalding but his lack of any kind of track record means he is a risky play.

Ray Spalding got into the mix on Saturday night and was able to post eight points (4-of-5 shooting), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 15 minutes of action.
Spalding picked up five fouls and would've been able to improve on that line had he gotten a friendlier whistle. His inclusion in the rotation was largely because of Richaun Holmes' (right quad strain) absence, but it was a fairly nice showing so we might see him get more spot minutes going forward. There's not much to see outside of 30-teamers here unless the Suns really start shutting people down.

The Suns signed Ray Spalding to a two-year deal on Sunday.
The deal is fully-guaranteed for the rest of this season with a partial guarantee for next season so Spalding will be with the Suns for a decently long time. The 21-year old forward averaged 15.9 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.5 blocks on 51.4 percent shooting in 29 games played for the Dallas Mavericks G-League Affiliate, the Texas Legends. Spalding started in 26 of the 29 games he played and even averaged 1.3 triples per game however it was on 23.1 percent shooting. The Suns already have a ton of forwards in Kelly Oubre, Josh Jackson, Richaun Holmes, Dragan Bender and Mikal Bridges so Spalding will have a tough time getting consistent minutes. He's best being left on the wire in most leagues.

The Suns have officially signed Ray Spalding to a 10-day contract.
The 56th pick from this year's draft, the 6'10" rookie has only played a total of one game this season and with only a minute of playing time under his name. Originally drafted by the 76ers then traded to the Mavericks, Spalding will have another chance to secure a roster spot with the Suns. He shouldn't be on any fantasy teams this year unless you're in a deep league looking for a player who might potentially make an impact on your team.

The Suns are expected to sign Ray Spalding to a 10-day contract.
Spalding was the 56th pick in last summer's draft but only appeared in one NBA game this season with the Mavs. He was waived at the trade deadline with Dallas taking on one more player than they sent away, and will look to make an impression in a crowded Phoenix rotation. His college numbers (12.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.7 blocks in 27.7 minutes per game) make him a name to file away in deep dynasty leagues.
