Top Wes Iwundu News

  • Wes Iwundu: Season concludes due to injury

    Iwundu will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to injury, per the G League transactions page.

    Iwundu posted some solid outings for the Charge throughout the season, reaching into double figures on six different occasions. Unfortunately, due to injury, he won't get a chance to add to that number in the regular-season finale. He'll instead gear up toward rehabbing what appears to be an ankle issue in preparation for the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Wes Iwundu: Excellent during start

    Iwundu logged 14 points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during Friday's 117-104 win over the Greensboro Swarm.

    Iwundu became one of the Charge's regular starters on March 11. He has averaged 10.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists across five G League games since then.

  • Wes Iwundu: Serviceable off bench

    Iwundu logged 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes during Tuesday's 126-120 loss to the Motor City Cruise.

    Iwundu logged one of his best stat lines across the 2021-22 G League season. At best, he will be an adequate backup for a Charge team that rosters many more guards than forwards.

  • Wes Iwundu: Plays but does little

    Iwundu logged zero points (0-1 FG), three assists and one rebound across five minutes during Wednesday's 133-110 loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

    The Charge have played 16 G League games so far this year. However, Iwundu has sat out all but four of them. They have continually alternated utilizing ineffective backups for starting power forward Tre Scott.

  • Wes Iwundu: Disappointing against Gold

    Iwundu logged four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes during Friday's 94-82 loss to the Grand Rapids Gold.

    Iwundu was signed by the G League's Cleveland Charge earlier this month. He logged his first game for them Friday but failed to supply a serviceable stat line off their bench.

  • Wes Iwundu: Time over in Atlanta

    Iwundu wasn't available Monday for the Hawks' game in Portland after Atlanta didn't re-sign him when his 10-day contract expired Sunday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Iwundu went from the starting five to off the roster in just the span of three days, as the fifth-year forward played 43 minutes and logged 12 points and six rebounds as a member of the top unit in the Hawks' most recent game Friday against the Cavaliers. Though Atlanta entered Monday's game without eight players due to injury or COVID-19 health and safety protocols, the returns of Kevin Huerter and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot were enough to cushion the loss of Iwundu on the wing.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Returns to bench role

    Iwundu isn't starting Monday's game against Portland, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Iwundu drew a spot start Friday night against Cleveland, but with Atlanta gaining a number of players back from the league's health and safety protocols, he'll head back to a reserve role. He's logged 23 and 16 minutes in his two games off the bench this season, scoring 10 total points and tallying seven boards over that brief stretch.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Starting against Cleveland

    Iwundu is starting Friday's game against Cleveland, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Iwundu came off the bench in his return to the court Wednesday against the Bulls and scored eight points while playing 16 minutes. He'll take Chaundee Brown's place in the starting five Friday.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Returns to action Wednesday

    Iwundu notched eight points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Wednesday's 131-117 loss to the Bulls.

    Iwundu was back in the lineup Wednesday after missing the previous game due to health and safety issues. He came off the bench but managed to log 16 minutes, a number that is unlikely to repeat itself often moving forward. The Hawks should start getting their main guys back on the court over the next few games, putting to an end the Iwundu experience.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Will be available Wednesday

    Iwundu (conditioning) will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

    Iwundu cleared the league's health and safety protocols Wednesday and will immediately be available for the Hawks. The 6-foot-7 forward has only made one appearance for Atlanta since signing a 10-day contract Dec. 22. During that contest, he notched two points and five rebounds across 23 minutes. He will likely have a similar workload against the Bulls, as the Hawks currently have 11 players sidelined due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Iwundu cleared the league's health and safety protocols Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Iwundu signed a 10-day hardship contract with the Hawks on Dec. 22, but he played in just one game before landing in COVID-19 protocols. During that contest, he recorded two points and five rebounds across 23 minutes. It's unclear if he will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, but if he is, he will likely have a significant role as the Hawks still have 11 other players sidelined due to the NBA's protocols.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Enters COVID protocols

    Iwundu entered the NBA's health and safety protocols Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Iwundu had just signed with Atlanta on a 10-day hardship deal Wednesday and played 23 minutes in his debut against the Sixers on Thursday, scoring two points (1-5 FG) and adding five rebounds. The 26-year-old is now the Hawks' eighth player to be placed in protocols and leaves the team with yet another opening on their roster.

  • Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Joins Atlanta via hardship

    Iwundu signed a 10-day contract via hardship exemption with the Hawks on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Iwundu spent time with the Mavericks and Pelicans last season, averaging 2.4 points and 2.2 rebounds across 41 total appearances. However, this year, the 2017 second-round pick was waived by the Hornets before the start of the regular season and had remained a free agent until now. He is expected to serve as a depth option during his stint in Atlanta.

  • Wes Iwundu: Waived by Charlotte

    Iwundu was waived by the Hornets on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Iwundu arrived in Charlotte as part of the Devonte' Graham sign-and-trade earlier in the offseason, but he's failed to make the final roster as the regular season approaches. The 2017 second-round pick appeared in 41 games between Dallas and New Orleans last season.

  • Hornets' Wes Iwundu: Dealt to Hornets

    The Hornets have acquired the Iwundu from the Pelicans as part of the three-team deal with Memphis that sent Devonte' Graham to New Orleans, Rod Boone of SI.com reports.

    Other assets gained by Charlotte in the deal include a protected first-round pick, cash considerations and the draft rights to Tyler Harvey. Iwundu will join an overhauled Hornets roster that will boast several serviceable rotational players. Thus, it is unclear if he is viewed as part of their plans for the upcoming season or if he could still end up elsewhere. The journeyman averaged 2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds across 13.9 minutes per game last season.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Out Sunday

    Iwundu (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's game against the Lakers, Andrew Lopez of ESPN reports.

    A sprained shoulder will keep Iwundu out of the final game of the season, so he'll finish out the campaign having appeared in 41 games between the Mavericks and Pelicans. In 13.1 minutes per game, Iwundu averaged 2.4 points and 2.2 rebounds per contest.

  • Pelicans' Wes Iwundu: Questionable for finale

    Iwundu (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's finale against the Lakers.

    Iwundu missed Friday's game against the Warriors due to a sprained left shoulder, but he still might be able to play in the finale. He could end up being a game-time call.
