The Bulls were supposed to take a step forward with their young core. A lot of teams are supposed to do a lot of things...

The Cavs have waived guard Daniel Hamilton, forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, guard J.P. Macura and guard Sindarius Thornwell, General Manager Koby Altman announced on Tuesday.
The Cavs are loaded with guards so it makes sense to release all the above. Cleveland’s roster now stands at 16, including Dean Wade, who is on a two-way deal.

Joe Vardon of the Athletic is reporting that former Sixers first-round pick Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has agreed to a training camp deal with the Cavs where he is expected to compete for an open spot at the bottom of their roster.
Luwawu-Cabarrot appeared in 26 games with the Bulls last season, averaging a career-high 6.8 points. He was drafted by the Sixers with the No. 24 overall pick in 2014 and has compiled averages of 5.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 171 career games in the NBA so far. The Cavs tip off training camp on Tuesday and TLC will be going against Cedi Osman, Sindarius Thornwell and rookies Dylan Windler and Kevin Porter Jr. in an open audition for backup minutes.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting in 30 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Sixers in the final game of the season.
TLC was picked up as a lottery ticket by the Bulls to see if any of that untapped potential could surface. Ultimately he finished outside the top-400 in both 8 and 9-cat formats and may be looking for a new home next season.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot played 27 minutes off the bench in Saturday night's game against the Sixers and scored 14 points on 5-for-12 from the field while adding six rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and a block.
Luwawu-Cabarrot was a spark off the bench for the Bulls, as were the defensive stats he added to his line. Luwawu-Cabarrot had his second-highest point output of the year, and seems to be a sold 3-and-D wing for the remainder of the fantasy playoffs. Feel free to give him a look if you need a glue guy to close out the year.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot started on Monday and scored 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Luwawu-Cabarrot started over Brandon Sampson and wasn't able to do much with it and logged 26 minutes, while JaKarr Sampson played 30 minutes off the bench. It's hard to trust any Bulls player right now as they're going to throw random bodies into starting lineups and play whomever gives them the best chances at losing games.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot collected the first double-double of his career on Saturday night, collecting 18 points and 10 rebounds against the Raptors while also posting two blocks and four 3-pointers in a team-high 32 minutes.
This was only TLC's fifth career game with four or more 3-pointers, and he established new career-highs in blocks and boards tonight. The Bulls are running out of bodies at this point so Luwawu-Cabarrot might get legitimate run down the stretch. That said, we'd be shocked if this didn't go down as his best game of the season, and fantasy owners can treat this as a fluke in the vast majority of formats.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot put up 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in a win over the Wizards on Wednesday.
He will not have much of a long-term fantasy impact, but he did outplay starter Antonio Blakeney in this one. Blakeney had two points and four rebounds on 1-of-4 shooting. Neither Luwawu-Cabarrot nor Blakeney are worth owning in most formats.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot started on Sunday with Otto Porter out for rest and chipped in six points on two 3-pointers in 19 minutes.
There's nothing to see here for fantasy purposes.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting while chipping in seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Monday.
TLC drew the start in place of Otto Porter Jr. (lower leg strain) but his fantasy value is irrelevant as Porter's injury is considered short-term.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will start in place of Otto Porter Jr. (lower leg strain) against the Bucks on Monday.
TLC has gotten some run at the back of the rotation since joining the Bulls, but hasn't done anything special. He's consistently been a theoretical 3-and-D player over his career, but has never put it together on the court. He's just a punt play in DFS unless Porter misses extended time.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (oblique contusion) logged 11 minutes in Saturday's game.
TLC hit a 3-pointer with no other stats. He's healthy, but not a fantasy option.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (right oblique contusion) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Celtics.
TLC was originally questionable for this one, but is trending towards playing. He's not a fantasy option.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (right oblique contusion) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics.
Luwawu-Cabarrot was able to play through the injury last night but the designation has changed from a strain to a contusion, so maybe he got hurt in a new way. He's not a fantasy option.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (strained oblique) will play on Friday vs. the Magic.
TLC hasn't done much to stand out in his limited time in Chicago and should be left on all waivers.
