Top Dante Exum News

  • Dante Exum: Waived by Houston

    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.

  • Rockets' Dante Exum: Returns to Rockets

    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.

  • Rockets' Dante Exum: Officially out for season

    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.

  • Rockets' Dante Exum: Remains out indefinitely

    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.

  • Rockets' Dante Exum: Still in walking boot

    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.

  • Rockets' Dante Exum: Moved to Rockets

    Exum (calf) was sent to the Rockets in the blockbuster move that resulted in James Harden landing in Brooklyn, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Exum is expected to remain sidelined until early March due to a strained right calf, and even once he returns, he likely won't have a significant role with the Rockets. At best, he'd occupy a backup point guard role, but he's struggled to do that effectively in the past.

  • Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Out 6-to-8 weeks

    The Cavaliers announced Wednesday that Exum (calf) will be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Tuesday that the strained right calf Exum sustained in the opening minute of Monday's loss to the Magic would sideline the guard for 1-to-2 months, but the Cavaliers' own report provides a tighter timeline for his return. The calf strain is just the latest in a long line of a major injuries for the No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, who has played more than 45 games just once in the past five seasons. Even if he experiences no snags in his rehab, Exum could remain sidelined until the All-Star break in early March.

  • Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Facing extended absence

    Exum was diagnosed Tuesday with a right calf strain and will be sidelined one to two months, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The 25-year-old sustained the injury during Monday's game against the Magic and will be unavailable for at least the next four weeks. A more specific timeline for Exum's return should come into focus as he progresses in his recovery.

  • Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Ruled out Wednesday

    Exum (calf) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Exum strained his right calf early in Monday night's game and did not return, so his absence Wednesday isn't a surprise. With the Cavs playing on the front end of a back-to-back, it's very possible Exum could be looking at a multigame absence.

  • Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Exits with calf strain

    Exum left Monday's game against the Magic with a right calf strain and won't return, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Exum had to be helped to the locker room after suffering what appeared to be a non-contact injury, but initial reports indicate the injury isn't as serious as it could have been. He'll likely need to be evaluated further before a timetable for his return is established.

  • Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Starting over Osman

    Exum will start Thursday's game against the Pacers, Angel Gray of Fox Sports reports.

    Exum has seen only 17.3 minutes per game and is averaging 3.3 points, 4.0 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals. Still, he'll be surprisingly starting over Cedi Osman against the Pacers.
