  • Tyler Lydon: Waived by Kings

    Lydon (hip) was waived by the Kings on Monday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Lydon was let go to free up a roster spot for DaQuan Jeffries, who was claimed off waivers and signed to a two-way contract Monday. The 23-year-old Lydon sat out the team's final preseason game due to a hip injury, so he may have to prove his health before finding work elsewhere.

  • Kings' Tyler Lydon: Won't play Wednesday

    Lydon (hip) will not play in Wednesday's exhibition game against Melbourne United.

    Lydon has been nursing right hip inflammation all week and will miss Sacramento's final exhibition as a result. It remains to be seen whether he'll be healthy for the start of the regular season next week.

  • Kings' Tyler Lydon: Ruled out Monday

    Lydon will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Jazz due to right hip inflammation, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Neither the severity of Lydon's injury or how he suffered it are clear at this point, but it will leave him sidelined for at least one contest. This is the Kings' last preseason game, so Lydon will have a little over a week to recover before the start of the regular season.

  • Kings' Tyler Lydon: Latches on with Sacramento

    Lydon signed a two-year contract with the Kings on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Lydon spent the 2018-2019 season with the Nuggets, averaging just 0.9 points over 25 contests. He figures to be in line for a bench role while with the Kings.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Returns from G League

    The Nuggets recalled Lydon on Monday from the G League's Capital City Go-Go.

    With the Go-Go's season coming to an end Saturday, Lydon should be up with the Nuggets for the remainder of the season. After Denver declined his third-year option back in October, Lydon doesn't have a place in the club's present or future plans and is unlikely to garner anything more than garbage-time run down the stretch.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Available Wednesday

    Lydon (concussion) is available to play in Wednesday's tilt with the Kings.

    Lydon's set to return after a three-game absence due to a concussion. His return likely won't have much of an affect on the Nuggets' rotations as Lydon's playing just 4.1 minutes per game on the season.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Questionable Wednesday vs. Kings

    Lydon (concussion) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings, T.J. McBride of reports.

    Lydon is still in the concussion protocol after missing Monday's game. He's only seen minor action off the bench this season and his status won't have a large impact on the Nuggets' rotation. If Lydon is unable to play Wednesday he'll figure to return after the All-Star break.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Ruled out Monday

    Lydon (head) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Heat, Harrison Wind of reports.

    Lydon is currently in concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head during practice. The second-year player out of Syracuse hasn't played more than 10 minutes this season, so his absence shouldn't have much of an effect on the Nuggets' rotation.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Scoreless in nine minutes

    Lydon had zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in nine minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Lydon has appeared in three of the last four games, but this was just the 15th time he has seen the the floor this season. Moreover, he hasn't earn double-digit minutes even once. As a result, he can be avoided across all formats.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Has third-year option declined

    Lydon had his third-year option declined Wednesday, Michael Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Lydon was the 24th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He had his rookie campaign cut short as a result of a torn meniscus in January. Since then, he's apparently not done enough to convince the organization he's worth the investment. As a result, Lydon will become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Grabs 10 rebounds in LVSL playoff loss

    Lydon posted six points (2-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists, four steals and a blocked shot across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 85-77 Vegas Summer League playoff loss to the Raptors.

    The 2017 first-round pick comes to the Summer League after suffering a knee injury that ended his season with Denver's G-League franchise. The Nuggets have a lot of faith in the Syracuse product and if he can put together an impressive training camp, he'll be in the mix for a backup spot in the Nuggets frontcourt.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Back in starting lineup

    Lydon had 10 points (3-6 FG, 3-5 3PT, 1-2 FT) in Monday's summer league victory over Milwaukee.

    The 2017 first-round pick was rested for the Nuggets' last game, but he returned to the starting five and played 26 minutes. Lydon was a complete non-factor as a rookie, with a torn meniscus in January all but ending his season.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Out for rest Saturday

    Lydon will not play in Saturday's summer league game against the Celtics for rest purposes, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

    Lydon is coming off meniscus surgery in his left knee, so the team doesn't want to push him too hard in an essentially meaningless summer league game. His next opportunity to take the court arrives Monday against the Bucks.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Set for first game since November

    Lydon (knee) has been cleared to play in the Nuggets' Las Vegas Summer League opener Friday against the Timberwolves, Gina Mizell of The Denver Post reports.

    Lydon, the No. 24 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, made a two-minute cameo off the bench Nov. 20 against the Kings in his NBA debut, which would go down as his only appearance during his rookie season. The power forward out of Syracuse had spent most of the first half of the campaign in the G League before being shut down for good in January after suffering a left knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery. Now more than five months removed from the procedure, Lydon has been practicing with the Nuggets over the last couple of weeks and shouldn't face any limitations during the summer league. If he impresses in Las Vegas, Lydon could enter training camp with a realistic shot at competing for a rotation spot with the Nuggets, though he'll face plenty of competition with Paul Millsap, Trey Lyles, Michael Porter and Juancho Hernangomez all offering the ability to stretch the floor at the power-forward spot.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Cleared for 5-on-5 work

    Lydon (knee) has been participating in 5-on-5 work for the last three weeks, Christian Clark of BSN Denver reports.

    Lydon underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee at the end of January, but after more than five months of rehabilitation, appears to have made a full recovery. The 6-foot-9 forward is listed on the Nuggets' summer league roster, so the assumption is that he's been cleared for in-game settings as well. As long as Lydon gets through summer league without any sort of setback, he should be a full-go for training camp.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Out four months after knee surgery

    Lydon underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday to correct a torn meniscus suffered during Wednesday's G-League game against the Vipers. He will be sidelined four months, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The rookie out of Syracuse has appeared in just one game for Denver, playing two minutes. But, he's seen a more prominent role in the G-League, averaging 12.6 points and 8.5 rebounds across 31.3 minutes per game. It seems likely that the injury will put an early end to his rookie campaign.
