Stiemsma was waived by the Trail Blazers on Saturday, RealGM.com reports. Stiemsma was battling Grant Jerrett and Tim Quarterman for the 15th and final roster spot to start the season, but the Trail Blazers opted to go with the younger player in Quarterman, who appears to have more potential as a prospect. Stiemsma is unlikely to field interest from other teams prior to the regular season, so he'll either head overseas or he could also start the year in the D-League with the Raptors' affiliate, the Raptors 905.
Center Greg Stiemsma was waived by the Magic on Thursday, per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. The move trims the Magic roster to 15 players, so it's unlikely the team makes another move before the start of the regular season next week. Stiemsma appeared in only two preseason games, going scoreless and picking up five fouls in a total of 17 minutes.
Raptors center Greg Stiemsma (ankle) made his season debut in Tuesday's victory over Oklahoma City. Stiemsma made his first appearance of the season in the second quarter and logged only 13 minutes off the bench. He converted all two of his field goal attempts and finished with four points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in a 100-88 victory.
Updating a previous item: The Raptors have officially ruled rookie center Lucas Nogueira and power forward Amir Johnson as inactive for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, per the team's official website. Nogueira has yet to play a game this season because of a groin injury, while has missed the last two games after sustaining an ankle injury Saturday against Orlando. Greg Stiemsma (ankle) is active, but his role off the bench remains uncertain.
