Udoh agreed to a one-year contract Sunday with the Beijing Ducks of the Chinese Basketball Association, Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops.net reports.
The exact total of Udoh's deal hasn't yet been revealed, but he'll reportedly become the CBA's highest-paid import player. After a stellar career in the EuroLeague from 2015-16 through 2016-17, Udoh didn't find much success while largely serving as a third-string center for the Jazz the past two seasons. He appeared in only 51 contests in 2018-19, averaging 2.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 6.3 minutes.
Udoh has several offers from international teams and may consider returning to Europe next season, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports.
An unrestricted free agent this summer, Udoh hopes to come to a quick decision within "the next week or so," per the Deseret News. Udoh is believed to be open to remaining in the NBA, but the 32-year-old saw limited opportunities over the last two seasons in Utah. "The two years have been good," Udoh said last month. "Didn't get the opportunities that I wanted but I was with a great team, a great organization and was able to build relationships that will last for a lifetime so I'll just continue to push that, continue to get better and we'll see what happens this summer."
Udoh managed 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, and four blocks in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 143-137 loss to the Clippers.
Udoh moved into the starting lineup with Rudy Gobert (rest) on the sidelines, finishing with 14 points and 13 rebounds to go with four blocked shots. Like a number of other players, Udoh is not going to see playing time like this again but he certainly demonstrated an ability to have value when moved into a significant role.
Udoh will start Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Udoh will fill in for Rudy Gobert, who's out for rest purposes. In 50 appearances this year, Udoh's averaging 2.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 5.8 minutes.
Udoh (back) has been cleared to play Monday against the Thunder.
As expected, Udoh has been given the green light to participate in Monday's contest following a nine-game absence due to a back issue. He sits near the back end of the rotation for the Jazz, so he's unlikely to see more than 10 minutes per contest after returning to health.
Udoh is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Thunder due to back spasms.
Udoh was a DNP-Coach's Decision on Friday against Memphis, and he's expected to return Monday following a nine-game absence. He hasn't carved out much of a role for himself this season, as he played just three minutes in four consecutive games prior to suffering a back injury.
Udoh (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Friday's 114-104 loss to the Grizzlies.
Udoh had previously been ruled out with a back injury but was ultimately listed as available for action. Nevertheless, he remained glued to the bench for the entire contest. The 31-year-old big man is averaging just 5.5 minutes across 35 appearances this season and can be left on waiver wires.
Udoh (back) is now available to play Friday against Memphis, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Udoh was reportedly out for Friday's clash, but he's now listed as available. Even when he's been healthy this season, he hasn't seen much playing time off the bench -- he's averaging just 3.8 minutes over his previous five contests.
Udoh (back) won't play Friday against Memphis, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
After being listed as doubtful, it's no surprise that Udoh won't be available for Friday's clash. Ricky Rubio (hip), Raul Neto (hamstring) and Dante Exum (ankle) have also been ruled out for the Jazz.
Udoh (back) is doubtful Friday against the Grizzlies, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Udoh has been sidelined since Feb. 9 due to back spasms, and he'll probably sit out again Friday. His next chance to take the court arrives Monday against the Thunder.
Udoh will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Pelicans due to back spasms, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Udoh's will miss his eight-straight game with back spasms. He's averaging just 5.5 minutes on the season, so his absence likely won't affect the normal rotations for the Jazz.
Udoh had two points (1-2 FG) and one rebound in six minutes during Saturday's 110-105 win over the Pistons.
Udoh has appeared in 26 of the team's 40 games thus far this season, and he saw his usual minimal minute total in this one. Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert typically eat up the vast majority of playing time at the center position, leaving only scraps for Udoh.
Udoh had one point (1-2 FT) and one rebound in two minutes during Wednesday's 128-125 loss to the Timberwolves.
Udoh has appeared in five of seven games thus far this season. Nevertheless, he has earned more than six minutes once, posting two points, two boards, two dimes, and one block in 15 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks, which Derrick Favors sat out with a sore knee. Given the team's depth at center, Udoh is unlikely to make much of an impact even in the deepest leagues.
Udoh totaled six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one block in eight minutes during Tuesday's 105-90 preseason victory over the Raptors.
Udoh once again saw limited run off the bench but did manage to contribute in a number of areas. Udoh is likely going to be the backup center behind Rudy Gobert but with the Jazz utilizing a number of lineups, it could mean a very limited role for the eight-year man out of Baylor. Barring a major injury to Gobert, Udoh will find it hard to maintain any real fantasy relevance.
Udoh missed his only shot attempt Monday but added five rebounds, three blocks and a steal in only 11 minutes off the bench during a 94-80 win over the Magic.
The 11 minutes were actually the most court time Udoh has seen since Jan. 17, but he certainly made the most of them. With Rudy Gobert healthy, his veteran backup doesn't have much of a role with the Jazz -- he's been a DNP in five of the last seven games -- but with Derrick Favors (neck) now banged up again, there could be a few more minutes available in the short term for Udoh.
Udoh (personal) will play Friday against the Hornets, Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Udoh missed Wednesday's win in Memphis due to personal reasons but will be back on the court for Friday's showdown with the Hornets. Udoh's minutes could take a hit for the remainder of the season with the acquisition of Jae Crowder, who is unlikely to suit up for Friday's contest. However the veteran didn't garner much fantasy attention to begin with Rudy Gobert dominating minutes at center.
Udoh will miss Wednesday's contest against the Grizzlies for personal reasons, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
It's unclear if the situation will result in just a one-game absence for Udoh. In the meantime, Derrick Favors may have to absorb more backup center minutes. If that's the case, more time could open up at power forward for the likes of Jonas Jerebko and Joe Johnson.
Udoh had two points (1-2 FG), six rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in nine minutes during Monday's 133-109 win over the Pelicans.
Udoh made the most of his limited playing time, and he has now combined to record six blocks in 26 minutes through the first three games of February. Udoh has delivered three-plus blocks on nine occasions in 2017-18, providing solid defense off the bench.
Udoh is set to return to the bench for Friday's game against the Hornets.
While the Jazz are yet to release an official lineup, given the news that Derrick Favors (ankle) has been cleared to play, all signs point to Udoh returning to the bench after making a spot start Wednesday against Washington. The former Baylor standout had 16 points, nine rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks in 34 minutes Wednesday, but his workload will take a significant hit with Favors in the rotation.
Udoh provided 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks across 34 minutes during a 107-104 win over the Wizards on Wednesday.
Udoh was excellent in his start in place of Derrick Favors (ankle). The 16 points marked a season high and he nearly picked up his first double-double of the season. Udoh also produced on the defensive end. This performance could earn him more minutes going forward.
