Sessions signed with the Wizards for the remainder of the season on Friday, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
After playing under a pair of 10-day deals, Sessions will remain in Washington for the final month of the regular season and into the playoffs. The 31-year-old has played at least 13 minutes each of the team's last five games, and while that workload should endure for the next few weeks, he'll likely sink back into a reduced role once John Wall (knee) returns from injury.
Sessions had 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 23 minutes during Saturday's 129-102 loss to Miami.
This was arguably the worst performance of the season by the Wizards, allowing their bench guys to see some additional playing time. Sessions doesn't bring much to the table and could even be off the roster after this week so he is a non-factor in fantasy leagues at this stage.
Sessions signed a second 10-day deal with the Wizards on Monday.
Sessions initially joined the team on Feb. 22, and the Wizards will keep him around for at least another week-and-a-half before deciding whether or not to keep him for the duration of the season. The veteran, who spent the first half of the season in New York, is yet to appear in a game for the Wizards.
Sessions will sign a 10-day contract with the Wizards, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Sessions started the 2017-18 campaign with the Knicks, but ended up being waived in January after playing just 13 games. However, with John Wall (knee) still out and Tim Frazier (nose) fresh off an injury, Sessions' addition should provide the Wizards some emergency help in the backcourt if another were to occur. Despite finding a new team, Sessions will likely only see spot minutes off the bench and isn't worth a pickup in fantasy leagues. According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, Sessions won't play Thursday against Cleveland, but will then be available to make his team debut Friday vs. Charlotte.
Sessions was waived by the Knicks on Saturday, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.
Sessions started the first three games of the season, but immediately fell out of the rotation after being replaced by Jarrett Jack. He only saw significant minutes in two games since. The 31-year-old journeyman will now be forced to find a new opportunity if he wishes to continue his career.
Sessions had two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds, and one assist in seven minutes during Monday's 103-91 loss to the Trail Blazers.
After holding a prominent role as the starting point guard for the first three games of 2017-18, Sessions has appeared in just four of the last 17 games. The 31-year-old journeyman is clearly sitting behind fellow veteran Jarret Jack and rookie Frank Ntilikina on the point guard depth chart, so Sessions can safely be left on waiver wires across all fantasy formats.
Sessions will draw the start at point guard during Thursday's season opener against the Thunder, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
With rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina playing limited minutes while working back from a knee injury, Sessions will draw the start. His role could be in flux throughout the season, however, so strong minutes and a good showing during the opener likely doesn't mean fantasy owners should look for Sessions on the waiver wire.
Sessions will start at point guard for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Nets, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.
The Knicks are currently having an open competition for the starting point guard job, most notably with rookie first-round pick Frank Ntilikina. Sessions will get the first look with the top unit, though coach Jeff Hornacek is expected to test different lineups over the first few games of the preseason, so this doesn't necessarily mean Sessions is the favorite. Look for the point guard battle to rage on until the regular-season opener.
Sessions is finalizing a one-year contract to play for the Knicks, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Sessions played just 50 games last season as Kemba Walker's backup at point guard due to a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee, which occurred in early February. In those games, Sessions posted 6.2 points, 2.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 16.2 minutes per game. In joining New York, however, he'll have a legitimate shot at starter's minutes, as the team's first round draft pick -- point guard Frank Ntilikina -- is a raw prospect. Sessions' true role with the team will likely be determined through training camp, but it seems safe to say at the moment that his fantasy stock should rise heading into the 2017-18 campaign.
Sessions (knee) isn't listed on the Hornets' injury report heading into Monday's game against the Bucks.
Sessions has been medically cleared to play for a while now after suffering a torn left meniscus Feb. 1, but the Hornets have mostly kept him inactive since that time, as he has yet to appear in a game. However, with Kemba Walker (knee) listed as doubtful for the penultimate game of the season, Sessions could finally have an opportunity to see the floor, though he likely wouldn't be asked to play major minutes. Instead, Brian Roberts and Briante Weber would presumably handle the bulk of the minutes at point guard if Walker is indeed out, while Sessions would act as more of an insurance option at the position.
Sessions (knee) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Sessions has been inactive since February following knee surgery, and with just four games remaining in the season and Charlotte's playoff hopes dwindling, it's more than likely the point guard will not return to the basketball court this season. Either Brian Roberts or Briante Weber will continue serve as the team's backup point guard in a limited capacity, as the two have taken turns in the role over the last several games.
Sessions (knee) will sit out Sunday's game against the Thunder, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Sessions has been out since suffering a knee injury during a Feb. 1 matchup with the Warriors and while he's not listed with any sort of injury on the team's report, he's still going to be inactive. It remains to be seen if he just needs some time to get into game shape or if the Hornets are potentially just holding him out to get some younger guys more reps, but as it currently stands, Sessions remains without any sort of timetable for a return. His next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against the Wizards.
Sessions (knee) will remain out for Wednesday's tilt with the Raptors, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Sessions isn't listed with any specific injury on the team's injury report, so it's unclear if he's still dealing with the knee issue that plagued him over the last few weeks, or if he's just not in the team's rotation. Either way, he'll be inactive again Wednesday, allowing Briante Weber to serve as the team's backup point guard behind Kemba Walker.
Sessions (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Suns, Stephanie Ready of FOX Sports Southeast reports.
David Scott of the Charlotte Observer reported Friday that Sessions has received clearance to play, but the Hornets may be inclined to give the point guard more time to ramp up his conditioning. He hasn't played since Feb. 1 due to the torn left meniscus, and with the Hornets beginning to slip out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team may not be eager to rush Sessions back into action. While Sessions remains out, Briante Weber should continue working as the main backup to starting point guard Kemba Walker.
Sessions (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Magic.
A torn left meniscus has sidelined Sessions since Feb. 1, and he's yet to return to full-speed practice. He's been able to work individually, however, and the hope is that the Hornets will get him back sometime before the end of the regular season. Until Sessions is cleared, Briante Weber should continue to serve as the primary backup to Kemba Walker.
Sessions (knee) was able to go through an individual workout following Tuesday's practice.
It's unclear how intensive Sessions' workout was, but it's a positive sign nonetheless to see him on the court in some capacity. Until he's cleared to take full contact in practices, however, Sessions likely won't be considered close to returning to game action after missing more than a month while recovering from surgery to repair a torn left meniscus.
Sessions (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls.
Sessions' continued absence will allow Brian Roberts to serve as the main backup to starting point guard Kemba Walker, though he won't be asked to play more than 10-to-15 minutes in most contests.
Sessions (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.
The veteran point guard continues to recover from knee surgery and will miss his 16th straight game. Sessions is already at the five-week mark of his projected four-to-six-week recovery timeline, but the Hornets haven't provided much of an indication that he's close to a return.
Sessions (knee) won't play Friday against the Magic.
Sessions is still recovering from knee surgery he underwent back in early February to repair a torn left meniscus, and was originally given a recovery timetable of four-to-six weeks. While it's been more than four weeks since the surgery, there has been no indication that the point guard has been able to participate in practice at all, so it's likely he misses at least a couple more games beyond Friday. As long as Sessions remains out, Kemba Walker will continue getting heavy usage as the starting point guard, with Brian Roberts serving as his top backup.
Sessions (knee) underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a torn left meniscus.
As was reported a few days earlier, Sessions will be sidelined for approximately four-to-six weeks while he recovers from the procedure. The absence of the veteran backup point guard, who was averaging 6.2 points, 2.6 assists and 1.5 assists and 16.2 minutes per game, will open up a spot in the rotation for Brian Roberts, but he's not expected to see enough playing time behind All-Star Kemba Walker to approach fantasy relevance in most leagues.
