The Grizzlies finally started their rebuild this season after a promising start
October 22, 2019, 1:11 pmPJ WashingtonPF, Charlotte Hornets
Coach James Borrego said that only Terry Rozier and Cody Zeller are locks to start in Wednesday's season opener against the Bulls and that the final three starters are not yet final.
The real surprise here is that Miles Bridges is not included in there as well. P.J. Washington's ascension from possible G League stint to potential starter has thrown an unexpected, yet pleasant, curveball to the Hornets coaching staff. We'd expect the team to go with the youth movement from the get-go at this point.

On Friday the Nuggets decided to waive Tyler Zeller.
After getting brought into Nuggets training camp last month Zeller was unable to crack the deep regular season roster they have assembled. Zeller is still in his modest prime so perhaps he will rebound with another NBA team during the season.

The Nuggets have signed C Tyler Zeller to the training camp roster on Thursday.
Zeller played all of six games last season with the Hawks and Grizzlies. Zeller will try to latch on as a third-string C for the Nuggets' deep frontcourt. Zeller is off the fantasy radar.

Tyler Zeller played 19 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's final regular season game, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting with four rebounds against the Warriors.
Zeller appeared in six games and averaged 15.5 mpg in those games. It doesn't seem likely that he suddenly finds an upward trajectory, but stranger things have happened. He's still waiver wire fodder in all formats.

In his second game as a Grizzly, Tyler Zeller scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with five rebounds and one block in Sunday's 127-129 overtime loss to the Mavs.
Joakim Noah sat this game out with right knee soreness and Zeller was able to take advantage of some extra run as the backup center. He went toe to toe vs. Salah Mejri in this one, which ended up widely entertaining, considering the game didn't really matter all that much.

Ivan Rabb started at center for the Grizzlies and had 12 points, eight boards, two assists and nothing else in 30 minutes during Friday’s win over the Mavs.
With Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) out for the season the Grizzlies have exactly two guys that are beefy enough to play traditional center- Rabb and Tyler Zeller. Rabb has had top-160 value over his last four though he’s inconsistent and doesn’t block many shots. For his part, Zeller had 10 points, three rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes which is the most he’s played in any game all season.

The Grizzlies will sign Tyler Zeller for the remainder of the season.
The Grizzlies will be without Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) for the rest of the season and it doesn't look like Joakim Noah (knee soreness) will be back either. Zeller will help fill the void at center allowing Ivan Rabb to play more power forward. Zeller should step into a decent role and could play 20-24 minutes per game down the stretch.

C Tyler Zeller has agreed to sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks.
Zeller, who has been on the free agent market all season, will look to provide frontcourt depth for the Hawks. With the Hawks big man depth chart currently depleted, Zeller could find himself in a decent role right off the bat. He is worth monitoring in case more injuries strike.

The Bucks have waived Tyler Zeller.
Zeller played in 66 games last season between the Nets and Bucks and was even used as a starter at times. It was reported back in July that the Bucks would move on from Zeller, and the preseason performance of Christian Wood all but sealed his fate.

The Bucks are reportedly likely to move on from center Tyler Zeller, according to ESPN.
Zeller's contract for next season is non-guaranteed, so they can waive him easily with no harm. The Bucks also just signed center Brook Lopez, which pretty much makes Zeller worthless on the team now.
April 22, 2018, 5:49 pmThon MakerPF/C, Milwaukee Bucks
Thon Maker made another big impact on Sunday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, two 3-pointers and five blocks in 31 minutes of action.
Maker has thrived with John Henson out and has suddenly emerged as a major player in this series. Tyler Zeller started but was fairly ineffective despite four points, for boards and two blocks in 11 minutes, and we wouldn't be shocked to see Maker eventually overtake him in the starting five. The Celtics have dared him to shoot and so far he's made them pay, but we'd expect some regression on that front as the series wears on. As long as Maker continues to be a menace at the rim, he'll have a place in the rotation.

Malcolm Brogdon and Tyler Zeller will start on Friday vs. the Celtics.
Brogdon replaces Tony Snell and Zeller replaces John Henson (back). Zeller should be a relative non-factor (unless he gets some revenge-game juice) while Brogdon should have a similar role despite the move to the starting lineup.

Tyler Zeller played 25 minutes in Wednesday's game, finishing with eight points and nine rebounds.
Zeller has unfortunately been a fixture in the Bucks rotation since being acquired from the Nets. The team has really lacked in center production and Zeller has really… not helped much. He gives the Bucks a big body but hasn't really done anything to warrant interest from fantasy owners. Even if he retains this backup center role next season he doesn't have fantasy appeal.
March 30, 2018, 9:55 pmJohn HensenPF/C, Milwaukee Bucks
John Henson (sprained finger) will not play on Friday vs. the Lakers.
With Hensen and Thon Maker (groin) out, Tyler Zeller will get the start and as many minutes as he can handle.
