Valentine (hand) logged 12 points (5-14 FG, 2-9 3Pt), 13 rebounds and eight assists across 31 minutes during Friday's 106-103 loss to the Lakeland Magic.
Valentine logged his first G League appearance since February.

Valentine averaged 16.3 points and 10.8 rebounds during January.... See More ... See Less
Denzel Valentine: Remains out indefinitely
Valentine is out indefinitely because of a right hand injury.
Valentine injured his right hand sometime during February. Deonte Burton and Matt Ryan have been the most recent forwards to log starts in place of him, and they will continue having starting chances, especially since Valentine's return date remains unknown.... See More ... See Less

Valentine logged 23 points (6-14 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 17 rebounds and eight assists across 28 minutes during Thursday's 138-126 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
Despite recently signing with the Maine Celtics and playing off their bench Thursday, Valentine is proving to be an excellent option for them. He demonstrated such by logging a double-double in a depth role. After recording 39 points and 25 rebounds across two games with Maine, there is an increased chance Valentine becomes one of the team's regular starters soon.... See More ... See Less

Denzel Valentine: Signs G League contract
Valentine agreed to a G League contract with the Maine Celtics on Friday, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Valentine started the season with the Cavaliers and made 22 appearances with the squad before he was traded to the Knicks and subsequently waived. He then latched on with Utah, but he made just two appearances -- totaling 19 minutes, five points, four rebounds and one steal -- before his 10-day contract expired Thursday. He'll attempt to work his way back onto an NBA roster through his time in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Denzel Valentine: Contract expires
The Jazz didn't re-sign Valentine after his 10-day contract expired Thursday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.
Utah signed Valentine on Jan. 10 while the team's depth was tested by several COVID-19 and injury-related absences, but the Jazz have only three players on the injury report heading into Friday's game against the Pistons. As such, the Jazz aren't expected to be granted another hardship exemption from the NBA, which leaves no room for Valentine now that his 10-day deal has expired. Valentine logged 19 minutes between his two appearances off Utah's bench, totaling five points, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Denzel Valentine: Plans to sign with Jazz

Valentine made 22 appearances for Cleveland this season before he was traded to the Knicks and subsequently waived. He averaged 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.3 minutes per game with the Cavaliers and will provide additional depth for Utah after the team had several players land in the league's health and safety protocols recently....

Knicks' Denzel Valentine: Re-routed to New York
Valentine will be traded to the Knicks as part of a three-team deal involving the Lakers and Cavaliers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
On Friday, it was reported that Valentine would head to the Lakers in exchange for Rajon Rondo, with the expectation that Los Angeles would ultimately waive the former Michigan State standout in order to create an open roster spot. Rather than taking that path, the Lakers will instead ship Valentine to the Knicks, who may be in need of some guard depth with Derrick Rose (ankle) sidelined and Kemba Walker battling recurring knee issues. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that the Knicks are yet to make a decision on whether or not they will keep Valentine on the roster. To complete the deal, Wojnarowski notes that New York will send out the draft rights to multiple players, including 2014 second-round pick Louis Labeyrie, to Los Angeles. None of the draft-rights players included in the deal are expected to play in the NBA.... See More ... See Less
Denzel Valentine: Waived by Knicks
Valentine will be waived by the Knicks on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Valentine was traded from the Cavaliers to the Knicks on Monday as part of a three-team trade, but New York will elect to not keep him on the roster. He averaged 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.3 minutes per game in 22 appearances with the Cavaliers to begin the year but will now seek out another organization.... See More ... See Less
Lakers' Denzel Valentine: Traded, expected to be waived
Valentine was traded from the Cavaliers to the Lakers on Friday in exchange for Rajon Rondo but is expected to be waived, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Lakers seemingly wanted to just open a roster spot instead of having Rondo, who didn't have a significant role with the team. Valentine has appeared in 22 games this season but has only seen double-digit minutes in seven, with averages in those games of 6.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists. Wherever he eventually lands, it seems unlikely he'll be fantasy-relevant.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Denzel Valentine: Paces bench in scoring
Valentine poured in 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt) to go with nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 144-99 win over the Raptors.
Valentine was one of several Cavaliers players to enter the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols within the past week, but he was cleared ahead of Wednesday's 111-101 loss to the Celtics and never missed any game action. For the Cavs' second straight game, Valentine received 26 minutes, and he was able to carve up a depleted Raptors squad that had just eight available players, including four who were recently added on 10-day hardship exemptions. Valentine looks like he'll be one of the top scoring options off the Cavs' bench in the short term, but his minutes will almost certainly take a hit once Cleveland gets more healthy bodies back in the mix. The Cavaliers were without seven players Sunday who are still in the health and safety protocols.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Denzel Valentine: Will be available Wednesday
Valentine is listed as available for Wednesday's contest against the Celtics.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Valentine was one of five Cavaliers to test positive for the virus Sunday, prompting the NBA to postpone the team's game against the Atlanta. The 28-year-old was expected to be sidelined for 7-to-10 days, but he has cleared protocols after just three days, which suggests the initial test was a false positive. Valentine will likely operate in a reserve role behind Lauri Markkanen and Dean Wade.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Denzel Valentine: In protocols
Valentine was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Sunday after testing positive for the virus, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Valentine was one of five Cavaliers to test positive for the virus Sunday, prompting the NBA to postpone the team's game against Atlanta later in the day due to the Cavaliers' inability to have the league-mandated eight players active for the contest. The 28-year-old wing will most likely be sidelined for 7-to-10 days while he waits to clear the protocol.... See More ... See Less
Denzel Valentine: Signs with Cavaliers
Valentine signed a two-year, partially guarenteed deal with the Cavaliers on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports
Valentine had been with the Bulls since getting drafted in 2016. He averaged 7.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 19.8 minutes during his time there. He will now try to make an impression with Cleveland at training camp.... See More ... See Less
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Scores 11 off bench
Valentine had 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt), an assist and a block in 17 minutes off the bench Friday against Memphis.
The Zach LaVine-less Bulls took another loss, but Valentine showed well while seeing his most minutes in any game since April 2. With LaVine likely to miss roughly two weeks, Valentine could see a slight uptick in his workload, though he's still unlikely to be a viable fantasy option in standard leagues.... See More ...
