    Troy Daniels will be unavailable Thursday night against the Hornets.

    Daniels is still in the process of signing with Denver. He's not fantasy relevant outside of deep leagues as a 3-point specialist.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nuggets signed Troy Daniels on Wednesday.

    Denver had an open roster spot after waiving Jordan McRae earlier in the week. Troy Daniels is off the fantasy radar but could help the Nuggets as a deep rotation piece as they hope to make a deep playoff run.

    The Lakers are waiving Troy Daniels but will not immediately add another player to the roster.

    The Lakers are going to maintain some flexibility with that last spot, hopefully adding someone who fills a specific need when the time arises. Daniels should find some interest as a sharpshooter off the bench.

    Troy Daniels (left knee injury) is available for Tuesday's matchup against the Suns.

    Daniels has only been averaging 15.2 minutes per game through the first nine games so far this season. The Lakers are getting healthier as Kyle Kuzma returned last week and Rajon Rondo is returning tonight so Daniels might see less minutes moving forward. There are better low-cost options in DFS lineups on Tuesday as it is unclear how many minutes he will see in this contest.

    Troy Daniels (left knee injury) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns after the results of his MRI came back negative.

    Daniels is considered day-to-day, so watch the news tomorrow if you happen to have Daniels in a very deep league.

    Troy Daniels will have a precautionary MRI after tweaking his left knee during practice.

    Daniels is coming off a nice game against the Raptors in which he scored 11 points. However, his playing time has been sporadic overall and an injury wouldn't help matters.

    Troy Daniels played well in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday as he put up 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting.

    Daniels has played better than Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, which has allowed him to keep his minutes. KCP played just four minutes in this one and it is likely that his role is diminishing as he has had a rough start to the season. KCP can be left on the wire, while Daniels is a solid shooting specialist in deeper leagues.

    Troy Daniels scored 15 points on Friday night, hitting four 3-pointers in 21 minutes off the bench.

    This is pretty much what Daniels does. He wasn't a major part of the rotation on Wednesday but was on the court even before garbage time in this one, so he's a gamble of a 3-point specialist in deep formats going forward.

  • Jared Dudley
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Jared Dudley's Lakers debut box score on Tuesday was comprised of nothing but two 3-pointers in 13 minutes off the bench.

    Dudley will continue to be a much greater influence on his real-life team than any fantasy squad this season. Other new Lakers Troy Daniels and Quinn Cook were also quiet as Daniels had six points in 16 minutes and Quinn went for four points in 17 minutes. All three can be safely ignored in all but the deepest of leagues.

  • Devontae Cacok
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Devonta Cacok notched a double-double in a losing effort against the Warriors on Friday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one block.

    Cacok got a rare start in this one along with Troy Daniels (five points, two rebounds, two steals and a three) and Jared Dudley (four points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three). Don't expect any of these guys to have any value in standard leagues beyond the occasional stream.

    Troy Daniels (sprained left knee) did not practice on Tuesday and remains out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Daniels can get hot in a hurry from deep and has the chance to be a deep-league 3-point specialist if he can get back on the court.

    A sprained left knee will keep Troy Daniels out of Saturday's preseason game.

    Daniels' regular-season status is starting to come under question at this point, as a sprained knee isn't typically an injury that can just be brushed aside. He'll be a deep-league 3-point specialist if he can find his way into the rotation.

    Troy Daniels (sprained left knee) did not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Nets.

    Daniels can score in bunches but is unlikely to see enough time to make an impact in fantasy.

  • Jared Dudley
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have officially announced the signings of Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels.

    Both players will slot in at the end of the Lakers' bench, with Dudley giving them some minutes as a stretch four and Daniels operating as a microwave scorer and floor-spacer when the team needs some extra shooting. There's no fantasy value to be found here.

    Troy Daniels has agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Lakers.

    The Lakers are adding a proven shooter around LeBron James and Anthony Davis, which is just crazy enough to work. Jokes aside, Daniels shot .385 from deep on 3.8 attempts per game with the Suns last season and has not shot below 38 percent from 3-point range since the 2015 season — he's been over 40 percent three times. Moreover, this move has no cap impact. Still, Daniels shouldn't be expected to occupy a huge role in the rotation, so this remains more of a depth signing than anything. It's a nice start but the Lakers have a lot more work to do.
