Top Eugene Omoruyi News

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Season best game in double-double

    Omoruyi finished with 16 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals in 23 minutes during Sunday's 140-112 loss to Phoenix.

    Omoruyi led all bench players in Sunday's contest in scoring and rebounds while adding a trio of assists and a team-high steals total in a well-rounded showcase. Omoruyi set season-high marks in scoring, rebounds and steals while posting his fourth double-digit point total of the year.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Iffy for Friday

    Omoruyi (concussion) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers.

    Omoruyi was unavailable Wednesday against New Orleans due to his concussion, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to return Friday. His status shouldn't significantly impact Washington's rotation.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Won't play Wednesday

    Omoruyi is out for Wednesday's game versus the Pelicans due to a concussion.

    Omoruyi is averaging 6.2 minutes across his 13 NBA appearances this season, so his absence shouldn't affect Washington's rotation much. Omoruyi's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Indiana.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Makes impact in limited action

    Omoruyi chipped in 14 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 12 minutes during Monday's 126-107 loss to the Celtics.

    The Wizards were blown out, but Omoruyi was a bright spot and cleaned up in garbage time. While he's currently on the outskirts of the rotation, Omoruyi certainly gave the coaching staff something to think about going forward.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Big off bench again

    Omoruyi scored 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding three rebounds, an assist and a steal in only 12 minutes off the bench in Friday's 134-98 preseason loss to the Raptors.

    The lack of court time in the Wizards' final exhibition contest, and the fact that it came in the fourth quarter, indicates the 26-year-old forward is likely on the outside looking in for a spot on the Opening Night roster, but it's hard to argue with his production and efficiency. Omoruyi, who signed a two-way contract with the Wizards in July, could stick around and provide some frontcourt depth if Kyle Kuzma (calf) remains sidelined to begin the regular season, however.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Leads bench in scoring

    Omoruyi tallied 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three steals and two rebounds over 12 minutes in Tuesday's 145-82 exhibition win over Cairns.

    Omoruyi led all bench players in scoring and finished as one of eight Wizards with a double-digit point total during a blowout victory. Omoruyi has played for four different teams across his first three NBA campaigns, and he's looking to carve out a consistent bench role during his first season in Washington.

  • Wizards' Eugene Omoruyi: Inks deal with Washington

    Omoruyi (ankle) agreed to a two-way contract with the Wizards on Tuesday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Omoruyi averaged 7.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16.1 minutes across 40 games for the Pistons and Thunder last season. The third-year forward will likely split time between the Wizards and the Capital City Go-Go of the G League in 2023-24.

  • Eugene Omoruyi: Waived by Pistons

    The Pistons waived Omoruyi (ankle) on Saturday.

    Detroit picked up Omoruyi's $1.9 million option Wednesday, but his salary for next season remained non-guaranteed, so the move won't cost the team any money. Omoruyi will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers. Omoruyi appeared in 17 games after signing a pair of 10-day deals in early March but also played for the Thunder, and he averaged 7.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16.1 minutes across 40 games for both franchises in 2022-23.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Staying in Detroit

    The Pistons picked up Omoruyi's (ankle) $1.9 million team option for 2023-24 on Wednesday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Omoruyi averaged 7.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16.1 minutes across 40 games for the Pistons and Thunder in 2022-23. The second-year forward fits the timeline of Detroit's youth movement and could see an extended role in 2023-24.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Ruled out

    Omoruyi (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Bulls.

    As expected, Omoruyi has been downgraded from doubtful to out and won't play in the season finale. Across 40 appearances (six starts), the second-year big man averaged 7.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16.1 minutes while splitting time with the Pistons and Thunder during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Omoruyi (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

    Omoruyi is doubtful for Sunday's regular-season finale with a sprained left ankle. If he's unable to go, Jared Rhoden and Buddy Boeheim could see increased roles with the Pistons severely shorthanded.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Ruled out Friday

    Omoruyi (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Iffy against Indiana

    Omoruyi (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game versus the Pacers.

    Omoruyi could miss Friday's game after suffering a left ankle sprain versus the Nets. With Isaiah Livers (ankle) also questionable, the Pistons might have to dig deep on their bench to find a starting small forward.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Will not return Wednesday

    Omoruyi has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Nets due to a left ankle sprain, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Omoruyi will finish Wednesday's game with six points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 14 minutes. R.J. Hampton, Jared Rhoden and Buddy Boeheim are all candidates to see more action for the rest of the contest. Omoruyi's next chance to play will come Friday in Indiana.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Gets starting nod

    Omoruyi is in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Nets, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Omuruyi will replace Isaiah Livers (ankle) in the starting lineup Wednesday. Omoruyi is averaging 9.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 22.0 minutes across his previous five starts this season.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Drops 19 points in 28 minutes

    Omoruyi recorded 19 points (6-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 4-7 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes during Sunday's 128-102 loss to Orlando.

    Omoruyi scored double digits for the third straight game, picking up a few extra minutes after Marvin Bagley was forced from the game due to a neck injury. If Bagley is forced to miss time, Omoruyi could move into a high-minute starting role at power forward. With that said, Omoruyi doesn't offer a lot outside of some sporadic scoring and the occasional defensive stat.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Productive off bench

    Omoruyi accumulated 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Thunder.

    Omoruyi converted on his second-most triples of the season Wednesday. However, his overall efficiency has been an issue since moving back to the bench, as he is shooting just 38.2 percent from the field in his last five games.

  • Pistons' Eugene Omoruyi: Inks rest-of-season deal

    Omoruyi signed a rest-of-season contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.

    The second-year pro out of Oregon is coming off two 10-day deals with the Pistons, and he's impressed the organization enough to stick around for the remainder of the campaign. Over his past eight appearances, Omoruyi has averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 24.8 minutes. As the Pistons let the season slip away, he should continue seeing plenty of action.
