Cavaliers' Walter Tavares: Fractures bone in right hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tavares fractured a bone in his right hand at practice Thursday, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Tavares signed with the Cavs prior to the playoffs, as they needed some more frontcourt depth. He has not seen the court in the playoffs, and was not expected to. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time.

Cavaliers' Walter Tavares: To sign contract with Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tavares is expected to sign with the Cavaliers, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

Tavares played in one game with the Hawks earlier this season, before being waived at the end of October. He's since spent time with the Raptors 905 of the D-League, playing in 48 games, while averaging 10.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 2.7 blocks across 23.6 minutes. The 7-foot-3 big man possesses incredible size and should provide the Cavaliers a depth option at center that can rebound and operate as a rim protector. The Cavaliers are expected to release Larry Sanders in the corresponding move.

Walter Tavares: Reaches agreement with D-League team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tavares reached an agreement earlier this month to sign with the D-League's Raptors 905.

Upon getting released by the Hawks on Oct. 31, Tavares humored the idea of heading overseas, but instead opted to continue his career in the D-League with the hope of eventually making it back to the NBA. Tavares has yet to debut for the 905 since signing with the team, but the 7-foot-3 center will give the team an active shot blocker once he's cleared to play.

Walter Tavares: Released by Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tavares was released by the Hawks on Monday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

The Hawks made the move with the plan to sign Ryan Kelly, as it appears the strong play of Mike Muscala through the start of the regular season has left Atlanta feeling good about the center position with no need for Tavares. The big man is still young, however, at just 24 years old and boasts plenty of potential on the defensive end. He may end up in the D-League to start, but there is a chance he finds another home in the NBA before the season is over.

Hawks' Walter Tavares: Double-doubles off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tavares totaled 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist and a block over 21 minutes in Thursday's 104-83 preseason victory over the Grizzlies.

The second-year center was outstanding while pacing the Hawks bench, serving as a dominating presence down low. At 7-foot-3, Tavares serves as a monstrous roadblock to the basket and turned in a solid Summer League performance that substantiated that potential (9.0 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.7 blocks across six games). Although the oft-injured Tiago Splitter currently slots in behind Dwight Howard on the depth chart at the five, Tavares will have a chance to give the coaching staff something to think about if he can take advantage of his preseason opportunities.
