Exum was waived by the Rockets on Saturday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports. Exum returned to the Rockets in mid-September. However, he was unable to secure a spot on the final roster after he averaged 2.3 points, 2.7 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game across three preseason appearances.
Exum signed an undisclosed contract Saturday to return to Houston, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports. Exum was acquired from the Cavaliers in the three-team deal which sent James Harden to Brooklyn in January. He was battling a calf injury at the time and wound up missing the rest of the season, so he's yet to play a game for his new team.
Exum (calf) is out for the season, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Exum suffered a calf injury in early January and hasn't played since. He'll finish the 2020-21 season with just six games played while on the Cavaliers. Exum remains one of the league's most injury-prone players. Since being drafted No. 5 overall in 2014, he's appeared in just 245 games. He is a free agent this offseason, and he may struggle to find a suitor willing to give him an extended contract.
Exum (calf) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies. The guard remains without a firm return timetable, and the Rockets haven't provided a recent update, so it's very much unclear how much more time the oft-injured guard will miss.
Exum (calf) remains in a walking boot and is without a firm timetable to return, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports. The oft-injured guard hasn't played since early January, back when he was member of the Cavs, and coach Stephen Silas didn't sound optimistic that he'll be available anytime soon. With the All-Star break approaching, 2020-21 is shaping up to be another season mostly lost to injury for Exum.
