Rush's 10-day contract with the Trail Blazers has expired and he will not be signed to a second, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Rush never ended up seeing action with Portland. He'll likely hope to latch on with another team.
Rush signed a 10-day contract with the Trail Blazers on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Rush has given the Timberwolves and Warriors reliable depth at shooting guard over the past few seasons, but now at 32 years old, it's hard to imagine Rush taking on a significant role with Portland.
The Bucks decided to waive Rush (hamstring) on Saturday.
Rush failed to make much of an impression during the preseason, posting just 2.7 points across 11.3 minutes in three contests. He was competing against Gerald green for a depth wing role, but ultimately was unable to win the battle. It is unclear how much his hamstring injury played a factor in the decision. The veteran will now look for new opportunities elsewhere.
Rush won't play during Friday's preseason finale against the Pistons due to a right hamstring strain.
Rush should be considered questionable for the team's regular season opener. That said, he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season considering the Bucks' depth on the wing.
Rush is joining the Bucks on a training camp contract.
The move was announced earlier in the week, but the details of the contract were not initially made public. It's now clear that Rush will come to Milwaukee on a training camp invite, meaning his contract is currently non-guaranteed, and he'd need to earn his way onto the final, 15-man roster. The veteran, who spent last season in Minnesota, is more accomplished than the typical camp invitee, but in order for the Bucks to keep him around beyond mid-October, they'd need to make a move to clear space. The 32-year-old Rush averaged 4.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 47 games (33 starts) for Minnesota in 2016-17.
Rush signed a contract with the Bucks on Monday, according to his agency, Priority Sports.
The details of the contract are yet to be revealed, but if Rush's contract is guaranteed for the 2017-18 season, the Bucks will have to make a roster move to clear a spot on the 15-man roster. Rush spent last season in Minnesota, where he appeared in 47 games and made 33 starts. The former Kansas star posted averages of just 4.2 points and 2.1 rebounds per game, though he did convert nearly 39 percent of his attempts from three-point range. The Bucks are a team in need of outside shooting, so if Rush does, indeed, stick around for the duration of the season, that's where most of his value would likely be realized.
Rush collected 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 110-109 victory over the Timberwolves.
Prior to Monday, Rush had only been seeing 18.0 minutes per game over the past six contests with coach Tom Thibodeau opting to give reserve point guard Kris Dunn some run next to starter Ricky Rubio. It appears that coach Thibodeau may have opted to go back to his usual rotation Monday, with Rush seeing around 35 minutes per contest. The situation could be worth monitoring, especially with most fantasy leagues in their playoffs.
Rush (illness) will start at shooting guard Friday against the Warriors, Kyle Ratke of Timberwolves.com reports.
Rush only missed one game with the illness, and it looks like it won't jeopardize his standing as a starter, a role he's held since Zach LaVine suffered a season-ending ACL tear in early February. Shabazz Muhammad, who tallied 17 points, six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes Friday, will move back to the bench to accommodate Rush's return and will likely see his playing time take a hit.
Rush (illness) will play in Friday's game against the Warriors, Jerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.
Rush sat out Wednesday's win over the Clippers due to an illness, but he was able to log a full practice Thursday and take part in morning shootaround Friday, prompting the T-Wolves to clear him for a return. Look for Rush to assume his typical role as the team's starting shooting guard and play around 25 minutes, which will likely translate to less time for Shabazz Muhammad, Tyus Jones and Lance Stephenson.
Rush (illness) took part in Thursday's practice and is considered probable for Friday's game against the Warriors, Kent Youngblood of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.
It looks like Rush will only miss one game due to the illness, which prevented him from suiting up in Wednesday's win over the Clippers. Look for Rush to reclaim his starting role at shooting guard Friday, resulting in Shabazz Muhammad heading back to the bench. Rush won't necessarily be in store for starter-level minutes, however, as coach Tom Thibodeau could opt to divvy up the minutes at shooting guard between Rush, Muhammad, Tyus Jones and the newly-re-signed Lance Stephenson.
Rush is dealing with an illness and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.
Rush attempted to make it through pregame warmups, but is still not feeling well enough to take the court, so he'll get the night off Wednesday. Shabazz Muhammad will jump into the starting lineup in his place and should see a bump in minutes for the duration of Rush's absence. Rush could be back as soon as Friday's game against the Wizards.
Rush submitted five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one block across 19 minutes in a 102-88 win over the Kings on Monday.
Rush is still holding down the fort as the Wolves' starting shooting guard with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season, but he's rarely made an impact on the offensive end. Since entering the rotation 10 games ago, Rush has failed to hit double figures in the scoring column in any contest, averaging a meager 4.7 points in 26.7 minutes per game during that span.
Rush scored nine points with three rebounds in 25 minutes in Friday's loss to New Orleans. He was 2-of-5 from three-point range.
Rush bounced back after failing to score in Wednesday's game, but he's hardly making an impact on offense as the starting shooting guard. He's averaging just 4.8 points per game and shooting just 31.6 percent in four games since starter Zach LaVine suffered a season-ending knee injury. It's hard to think Rush will stay in the starting lineup too much longer, but head coach Tom Thibodeau's plans are not clear.
Rush started at shooting guard but did not score and was 0-for-3 from the field in 20 minutes in Wednesday's win over Toronto. He had one rebound and no assists.
Rush is starting in place of injured Zach LaVine, but he's not contributing much on offense as he has just ten total points over three games. He could see his playing time decrease as a result.
Rush scored five points with three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes in Monday's loss to Miami. He was just 2-of-5 from the field.
Rush is starting at shooting guard in place of injured Zach LaVine, but he's not providing much offense. He's scored five points in each of his last two games (both starts) and has taken just nine total shots from the field. He could be a source of three-point shots if he stays in the starting lineup, but he's taken just five shots (2-of-5) from three-point range the past two games.
Rush, getting first crack at the starting shooting guard role in the wake of Zach LaVine's season-ending knee injury, mustered just five points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds over 24 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Grizzlies.
The nine-year veteran ceded most of the usage in the backcourt to Ricky Rubio, and was inefficient with the attempts at the basket that he did make. While he's shown the ability to contribute with his long-range proficiency in the past, it remains to be seen if he's in the starting five for the long haul. Rush did log 36 and 40 minutes, respectively, in two January starts, posting 12 and 11 points in those games.
Rush will start at shooting guard for Saturday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune reports.
With Zach LaVine (ACL) out for the season, Rush seems to be the likely candidate to enter the starting five. Rush could be someone to pick up in many fantasy formats if he's available, as he's averaged 38 minutes per game in the past two contests that LaVine missed. He's knocking down 44.8 percent of his three-point attempts on the season, and should help space the floor for the Timberwolves.
Rush played just three minutes and did not score in Sunday's loss to Dallas.
Rush averaged 11.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers, 2.5 blocks, 2.5 steals and 2.0 assists in 38.0 minutes per game the prior two games with Zach LaVine out with a hip injury. However, he'll likely get few minutes off the bench with LaVine healthy again as head coach Tom Thibodeau has stuck primarily with his starters even when bench performers have done well in spot starts.
Rush is expected to return to a bench role for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.
The Timberwolves announced about an hour before the 2:00 p.m. ET tip off that Zach LaVine (hip) would be available, and though an official lineup hasn't been announced, it's likely LaVine will take his starting role after missing only two games with the injury. LaVine isn't expected to face any playing-time restrictions either, so assuming he takes on his usual 35-plus-minute workload, Rush will see his role diminish considerably. Rush has averaged 11.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers, 2.5 blocks, 2.5 steals and 2.0 assists in 38.0 minutes per game over the last two contests while starting in place of LaVine, but had largely been out of the rotation before that, appearing in only two of the Timberwolves' prior 14 games.
Rush will be getting his second straight start with Zach LaVine (hip) out, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.
Rush also started Wednesday's game against Houston with Zach LaVine out, and provided 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks across 36 minutes.
