  • Omer Asik: Bulls request salary removal

    The Bulls officially requested that the league remove Asik's contract from the team's salary sheet, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Asik was waived back in October once it became clear that his basketball career was in jeopardy due to ongoing battles with arthritis and Crohn's Disease. The Bulls are now hoping to use a career-ending injury/illness exception to wipe Asik's contract off the books for next season, which would free up $3 million in additional cap space this summer.

  • Bulls' Omer Asik: To be waived

    Asik (illness) will be waived by the Bulls to make room for Shaquille Harrison, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. Asik is dealing with inflammatory arthritis, and the Bulls are opting to sign a healthy player to take his roster spot. It seems unlikely he'll sign with another team in the immediate future.

  • Bulls' Omer Asik: Out indefinitely

    Asik is dealing with inflammatory arthritis, and will be sidelined indefinitely. Asik is coming off his roughest season as a pro, as he played in just 18 games and produced career lows across the board. He is set to make about $23 million through the 2019/20 season, which makes him very difficult to trade. Thus, the Bulls will have to wait for him to work his way back to basketball activities, which there is no clear timetable for.

  • Bulls' Omer Asik: Awful season

    Asik averaged just 1.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 0.2 assists across 18 games played with the Pelicans and Bulls during the 2017-18 season. Asik had his worst season by far as he only appeared in 18 total games between the two different NBA teams. The Turkey native produced career lows in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and just about every other statistical category. Somehow, Asik is the second-highest paid Chicago Bull where he is signed through the 2019/20 season where he is set to make about $23 million total combined.

  • Bulls' Omer Asik: Dealt to Bulls

    Asik, along with Tony Allen and a first-round pick, was traded to the Bulls on Thursday in exchange for Nikola Mirotic, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. While a similar trade was reported to have happened on Tuesday, some complications with Mirotic's contract led to it falling apart. However, those have now been resolved, and Asik is officially on his way to Chicago with teammate Tony Allen. With the Bulls looking to continue building their young core, Asik's role with the team will likely be a deep bench role.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Grabs four boards in Tuesday's loss

    Asik had one point (1-4 FT), four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 114-103 loss to the Kings. Asik picked up five fouls and was eaten alive by Kosta Koufos and Georgios Papagiannis, so this wasn't a positive performance for the almost-traded center. Nevertheless, if he does indeed remain with the Pelicans beyond the deadline, coach Alvin Gentry appears to trust Asik much more than he does sophomore big man Cheick Diallo, who saw just six minutes on Tuesday.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Trade to Bulls falls apart

    Updating a previous note, the trade that sent Asik and a first-round pick to the Bulls has fallen apart, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Not even 30 minutes after it was reported that Asik was being shipped to Chicago, the trade fell apart due in large part to team's wanting the Bulls to guarantee his $12.5 million team option for the 2018-19 season. Asik will now remain the Pelicans, where he is expected to continue being a deep bench option in the frontcourt, even with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) out for the rest of the season.

  • Bulls' Omer Asik: Traded to Bulls

    Asik and a first-round pick were traded to the Bulls on Tuesday in exchange for Nikola Mirotic, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Since signing his five-year, $57.7 million contract with the Pelicans in July of 2015, Asik has battled numerous injuries and hasn't seen much of the court when healthy. Given that the Bulls are working on developing their young core of players, it's unlikely that Asik sees many, if any, minutes with Chicago for the rest of the season.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Grabs four boards in Wednesday's win

    Asik had two points (1-2 FG), four rebounds, and one assist in eight minutes during Wednesday's 123-114 win over the Nuggets. Asik has appeared in three straight contests and four of the last seven. This was his lowest share of playing time in any of these appearances, but that likely had to do with the fact that the Nuggets were playing smaller lineups for most of the game. Asik, who is battling Crohn's disease, may continue to see an uptick in minutes while Anthony Davis (groin) is out. However, it's also possible Asik has leapfrogged sophomore big man Cheick Diallo, who has been a healthy scratch for four straight games now.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Available Wednesday, unlikely to play

    Asik (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Spurs but "probably won't play", Will Guillory of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Asik has been battling Crohn's disease, which has rendered him unable to play so far this season. While it's still unlikely he'll see the floor Wednesday, this represents a significant step in his progress.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Upgraded to questionable Wednesday

    Asik (illness) has been upgrade to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports. Coach Alvin Gentry mentioned on Tuesday that he hoped to have Asik take the court at some point this year and while that made it seem like Asik was still going to be out for some time, he's now surprisingly being considered for a return just a day later. The big man has been working through Crohn's disease and even if he were to be cleared, he likely wouldn't see anything more than a handful of minutes. Fantasy owners will likely want to steer clear until a defined role is set.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Intends to play at some point this year

    Coach Alvin Gentry said he intends to get Asik (illness) on the court at some point this year, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports. Asik has yet to see the floor this year, as he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease prior to the season. It definitely doesn't sound like Asik is nearing a return, but coach Gentry does still plan to have him available at some point this year. For now, Asik can still be considered out indefinitely and even when he does return, he likely won't become a fantasy contributor behind the likes of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Remains out indefinitely

    Asik (illness) remains out indefinitely and will not play Wednesday against the Wolves, Wolves' radio voice Alan Horton reports. Asik was diagnosed with Crohn's disease a few weeks before the start of the season and has been away from the team receiving treatment. The Pelicans haven't provided much in the way of an update, but there's no evidence to suggest that Asik will be back on the court anytime soon.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out again Sunday

    Asik (illness) will not play Sunday against the Lakers. Circumstances around Asik's illness are still somewhat unclear, and at this point it's difficult to predict when he might be activated. There's been no indication that Asik will be back on the floor, let alone in the rotation, anytime soon, rendering him an afterthought in most leagues.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Likely out for season

    Coach Alvin Gentry acknowledged Friday that Asik (illness) is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season, ESPN.com's Justin Verrier reports. "[Asik] will be gearing toward the summer and next year, really," Gentry said. Asik has been held out since the All-Star break while recovering from a bacterial infection, which caused him to shed a significant amount of weight. It seems Asik is still having difficultly getting back in playing condition, and because the Pelicans haven't been relying on him as a rotation player since late December, there's little incentive to rush him back before the campaign draws to a close in mid-April. Asik, who still has three years remaining on the five-year, $57.7 million pact he inked with the Pelicans in July of 2015, averaged 2.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game over 31 appearances in 2016-17.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out Friday vs. Rockets

    Asik has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Rockets. Asik is still dealing with the lingering effects of a bacterial infection and will miss yet another game. He's yet to be given any timetable for a return and should continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis until the Pelicans suggest otherwise. He won't be included in coach Alvin Gentry's rotation once he returns to full strength.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out Tuesday vs. Grizzlies

    Asik (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's tilt with the Grizzlies. Asik continues to miss time as he recovers from a bacterial infection which has sidelined him since the All-Star break. His next opportunity to take the court will come Thursday against the Rockets. When he is cleared to return, the center will likely play in an extremely limited role.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Remains out Sunday vs. Timberwolves

    Asik (illness) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Asik has been sidelined since the All-Star break while recovering from a bacterial infection. It's uncertain when the Pelicans can expect him to back at full health, but Asik won't be under consideration for a rotation spot for coach Alvin Gentry in any event.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Listed as out Friday vs. Rockets

    Asik (illness) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Rockets. The designation comes from the Pelicans' game notes, which aren't always the most reliable source, but in the case of Asik, it seems somewhat safe not to expect him to suit up Friday. He's been ruled out of every game since the All-Star break while battling a bacterial infection and is still working to regain conditioning, so it may be a while before the team clears him to play again.

  • Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out again Wednesday vs. Heat

    Asik (illness) will remain out Wednesday against the Heat. Asik hasn't been available since the All-Star break while contending with a bacterial infection, but the plodding big man hasn't seen action in a game since Feb. 10. Don't expect Asik to see much regular action with the Pelicans once he's healthy again.
