Kaminsky didn't play Monday at Washington.
Kaminsky seems to have fallen out of the rotation, having gone five straight games without taking the court. Wednesday's game against the Hawks has been postponed due to safety reasons and COVID-19 protocols, so Kaminsky's next chance to play will come Friday at home against the Warriors.
Kaminsky (undisclosed) isn't on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Kings.
Kaminsky was forced to miss the team's season opener while going through health and safety protocols before joining the Suns. While he should be available for Phoenix going forward, the 27-year-old isn't expected to play a significant role for the team this year.
Kaminsky will miss Wednesday's opener against the Mavericks due to health and safety protocols.
Kaminsky was picked up by the Suns on Monday, but he'll need to pass through protocols before joining the team. He's not expected to play a significant role this season.
Kaminsky has been claimed off waivers by the Suns, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Kaminsky will return to Phoenix, where he played 39 games of the 2019-20 season. During that span, Kaminsky averaged 9.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field and 33 percent beyond the arc. The former Wisconsin standout previously signed a deal with the Kings before being released last week.
Kaminsky will be released by the Sacramento Kings, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After signing a one-year contract with the Kings in late November, Kaminsky appeared in one preseason game where he managed 10 points in 10 minutes of action. His NBA career appears to be trending in the wrong direction, as this was his third stop in as many years. Hassan Whiteside and Richaun Holmes will be the primary options at center for Sacramento going forward.
Kaminsky tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and four rebounds in 10 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Kaminsky managed just 10 minutes off the bench for the Kings, perhaps providing an insight into what his role might look like moving forward. His career has been full of disappointment thus far and his new environment does not seem and more positive. He can score in bunches when given sufficient playing time but that seems merely a pipe-dream at this point.
Kaminsky signed a one-year contract with the Kings on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Kaminsky's team option was declined by Phoenix last week after serving in a depth role during the 2019-20 season. He'll get the chance to make an impact with his third team in as many seasons after averaging 9.7 points and 4.5 rebounds over 19.9 minutes per game with the Suns last season. He should take on a backup role behind Hassan Whiteside in Sacramento.
Kaminsky's team option for the 2020-21 season was declined by the Suns on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Kaminsky was simply a depth piece for the Suns last season, so the move to decline the option isn't overly surprising -- particularly in light of Phoenix taking Jalen Smith out of Maryland with the 10th pick in Wednesday night's draft. Kaminsky will now head into unrestricted free agency.
Kaminsky finished with three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and six rebounds in nine minutes during Tuesday's 117-115 victory over the Clippers.
Kaminsky had another shocker Tuesday and continues to have very little impact for the Suns. He has played a combined 29 minutes over the course of the first three games, and with no indication that is going to change, he can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Kaminsky (kneecap) is fully healed and will be able to play once the NBA season resumes, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
It seemed like Kaminsky was nearly ready to return when the season suspended. With the added time off, he'll be good to go once the league is back in action. Before getting hurt, Kaminsky was in the midst of a solid season, averaging 11.0 points and a career-high 4.9 rebounds across 22.4 minutes per game.
Kaminsky (kneecap) is "through the healing process" of his injury, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
The next step for Kaminsky will be to get on the court and do basketball-related workouts. However, that's not easily accessible at this point due to coronavirus concerns. Regardless, it's a good sign that Kaminsky is ready for that step of his rehab.
Kaminsky (kneecap) is scheduled to receive a follow-up consultation this week and is still viewed as out indefinitely, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
The big man hasn't played since Dec. 28 due to a right patella stress fracture. Unless Kaminsky receives good news when he receives the consultation, there's a real chance he might be done for the rest of the regular season.
Kaminsky (kneecap) will be re-evaluated in three weeks before the Suns pinpoint a target date for his return, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Kaminsky hasn't played since Dec. 28 due to a fractured right kneecap. The Suns initially labeled Kaminsky as out indefinitely, and after re-evaluating him coming out of the All-Star break, the team didn't see enough progress to clear him to resume practicing. Kaminsky will rest up until mid-March before the Suns check back in on his condition and see if he's ready to get back on the court. The 26-year-old isn't a lock to be included in coach Monty Williams' rotation once he eventually makes it back to action.
The Suns announced Saturday that Kaminsky is dealing with a right patella stress fracture and will remain out indefinitely.
Kaminsky had already missed the previous two games due to an unspecified injury, but the latest report suggests the big man is dealing with structural damage in his kneecap. Phoenix relayed that Kaminsky will be re-evaluated again in four weeks, though he's unlikely to be ready to play until at least the second half of February. The 26-year-old is averaging 11.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 triples in 22.4 minutes per game over 32 appearances this season, but most of that production came while Deandre Ayton was serving a 25-game suspension. With Aron Baynes also ahead of him in the pecking order at center, Kaminsky may not be included in coach Monty Williams' rotation once he's healthy again.
Kaminsky (knee) won't play Friday against the Knicks.
Kaminsky was being considered doubtful due to a knee injury, so this update isn't a surprise. His next chance to take the court will come Sunday against the Grizzlies.
Kaminsky (knee) is considered doubtful for Friday's game against the Lakers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Kaminsky is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers with a knee injury, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old didn't play Monday against the Trail Blazers and was believed to be healthy entering the contest, so it's unclear when he picked up the injury. Regardless of his health, Kaminsky's playing time will remain limited with Deandre Ayton and Aron Baynes available.
Kaminsky failed to leave the bench during Monday's 122-116 victory over Portland.
Kaminsky was a healthy DNP as the return of DeAndre Ayton forced him to watch from the sidelines. It would appear as though Ayton and Aron Baynes are going to split minutes at the center position while Kaminsky battles for power forward minutes with Dario Saric and Mikal Bridges. He has struggled to have consistent value, even with Ayton sidelined for an extended period. He is not someone to target in even moderately competitive leagues.
Kaminsky (knee) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Kings, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Despite some knee soreness, Kaminsky will be available Saturday. Over the past five games, he's averaging 9.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 16.6 minutes.
