Kaminsky tallied 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 123-115 loss to the Lakers.
Kaminsky gathered some momentum during Tuesday's win, shooting an efficient 70 percent from the filed on his way to 16 points. As a result of Deandre Ayton's suspension, there had been speculation Kaminsky could have value in 12-team formats. Unfortunately, he was not able to capitalize on the opportunity and was released back onto waiver wires everywhere. Perhaps this performance gets him going again but we would need to see more consistency before labeling him a must-roster player.
Kaminsky played 28 minutes off the bench and finished with two points (1-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block Sunday in the Suns' 138-112 win over the Nets.
After starting center Deandre Ayton was handed a 25-game suspension following the Suns' season-opening win over the Kings, Kaminsky emerged as an appealing pickup when he averaged 13 points across Phoenix's first five games sans Ayton. The bloom looks to be off the rose for Kaminsky at this point, however, as he's since fallen into a massive shooting rut. He's connected on only two of his 14 field-goal attempts and now sits on a 34.2 percent mark for the season.
Kaminsky had 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3PT, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and six assists in Saturday's win over the Clippers.
The Suns logged another impressive victory, and Kaminsky was a big reason why, as he played 29 minutes off the bench and was a team-best plus-15. The Wisconsin product should continue to see increased run over the next month-plus while Deandre Ayton serves his 25-game suspension.
Kaminsky had 19 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3PT, 11-11 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist during Phoenix's 107-108 loss at Denver on Friday.
Kaminsky logged an impressive 33 minutes off the bench and while his scoring total was solid, it needs to be put into context since his percent record on 11 trips to the charity stripe saved what would've been an otherwise average performance for him. With Aron Baynes starting in place of the suspended DeAndre Ayton, Kaminsky should remain as a strong bench asset although his upside will be mostly tied to his scoring and rebounding totals, as well as his playing time off the bench.
Kaminsky finished with 22 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block in 19 minutes during Monday's 107-102 preseason loss to the Nuggets.
Kaminsky is having himself a nice preseason and that continued Monday despite the loss. He is certainly doing his very best to earn meaningful minutes for the young Suns team. Kaminsky struggled to find a consistent role during his time in Charlotte and things are not a lot clearer, even after his recent performances. He is probably too risky to take a chance on in standard leagues but managers should just keep an eye on things to see if he can turn this into something real.
Kaminsky (back) isn't listed on the injury report prior to Tuesday's preseason game against the Timberwolves.
Kaminsky was slowed by some back tightness earlier in the month, but he appears to have put the issue behind him. He should be available Tuesday if called upon.
Kaminsky is dealing with "a little bit of low back tightness," Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
The issue appears to have cropped up during practice, but the team doesn't seem too concerned at this point. It remains to be seen if he'll participate in Tuesday's preseason contest against the Timberwolves.
Kaminsky and the Suns have agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Kaminsky never quite fit in with a crowded Hornets frontcourt, but he'll head to a more favorable situation in Phoenix, which parted ways with backup big man Richaun Holmes earlier Monday. The Suns do have Aron Baynes behind Deandre Ayton, but Kaminsky can also slide down and play the power forward spot, where Phoenix currently has very little depth.
Kaminsky was not extended the qualifying offer and will become an unrestricted free agent.
As expected, Kaminsky wasn't extended the qualifying offer by the Hornets, making the fourth-year big an unrestricted free agent. Kaminsky averaged 8.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 threes in 16.1 minutes per game a year ago and figures to sign a contract with a team as a rotational stretch big upon free agency.
Kaminsky is unlikely to receive a qualifying offer from the Hornets, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.
The expectation is that the big man will become an unrestricted free agent. After drafting P.J. Washington, the Hornets' frontcourt is relatively full, and Charlotte seems to be content with letting Kaminsky walk. He appeared in 47 games last season, averaging 8.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.1 minutes.
The Hornets have not yet decided if they'll extend Kaminsky a $4.4 million qualifying offer, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.
Hornets' executive Mitch Kupchak was up-front with the media, saying recently that the team has not yet decided whether it will bring Kaminsky -- a former top-10 pick -- back for what would be his fifth season in Charlotte. The Wisconsin product appeared in only 47 games last season, but he had a relatively strong run of production near the end of the end of the year, averaging 12.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.6 made threes over his final 21 games. Prior to that stretch, the two sides appeared to be heading for a divorce this summer, but the big man's future is now very much clouded. Charlotte will have until July 1 to make a decision.
Kaminsky tallied 14 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 23 minutes in Tuesday's 124-97 win over the Cavaliers.
Kaminsky cooled off from his last three games Tuesday night, failing to record 20 points, but the effort was solid nonetheless. He was much less active on the offensive end Tuesday, shooting only five shots. Look for him to receive a solid look off the bench in the team's last game.
Kaminsky finished with 24 points (9-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a block across 28 minutes in the Hornets' win over the Pistons on Sunday.
Kaminsky continued his strong play on Sunday, dropping 24 points in a must-win game. Kaminsky has been a key contributor for the Hornets over their recent three-game winning streak, averaging 29.3 points and 8.0 boards.
Kaminsky contributed 22 points (8-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes during Friday's win over Toronto.
Kaminsky topped 20 points for the second-straight game, coming through with a pivotal performance in the Hornets desperate effort to keep the playoff dream alive. After being on the periphery of the rotation for much of the season, Kaminsky's come alive since the start of March. Over his past 17 games, Kaminsky's averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds while seeing 21.7 minutes per contest -- nearly a 10 minutes per game increase over his averaged for the rest of the season. Given their current standing, the Hornets will need everything Kaminsky can provide in order to make the playoffs.
Kaminsky totaled 21 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-9 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 victory over the Pelicans.
Kaminsky played 28 minutes off the bench Wednesday, leading the second unit with 21 points including three triples. With Cody Zeller (knee) basically done for the season, Kaminsky has had extra opportunities over the past few weeks. His stronger nights typically result in points and threes making him more of a speculative streaming option at best.
Kaminsky notched 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 125-116 overtime victory against the Spurs.
Kaminsky was extremely efficient shooting Tuesday night, hitting four threes en route to 50 percent shooting on the night. His size alone affords him ample rebound chances, but his lack of post play for a big and lack of opportunity in the minutes department makes games like Tuesday's hard to come by.
Kaminsky contributed 13 points (3-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 30 minutes during Sunday's 93-75 loss to the Heat.
Kaminsky continues to produce fairly decent counting stats through eight March matchups, this after being an afterthought in the team's rotation for much of the campaign. The 25-year-old big man isn't the most consistent factor, as he has scored in single digits twice this month. Nevertheless, he's been amassing enough points and boards to hold decent value for those in deep leagues.
Kaminsky finished with 16 points (4-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, and one rebound in 21 minutes during Saturday's 131-114 loss to the Bucks.
Kaminsky dropped double-digits for the fourth time in his last five games, continuing to have somewhat of a resurgence. The scoring has been nice but Kaminsky typically produces very little outside of points and three-pointers and so, remains a streaming option only at this stage.
Kaminsky totaled 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds and one block across 23 minutes in Wednesday's 91-84 loss to the Heat.
Kaminsky has now averaged 17.8 points over his last three games, which is surprising since he had scored just 18 points all of 2019 prior to that span. His shooting has certainly been efficient and if he can impr3ove his rebounding given his size, he can maintain his minutes off the bench.
Kaminsky collected 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 123-112 win over the Nets.
Kaminsky reached double figures in scoring for the first time since Dec. 14 while earning double-digit minutes for the first time since Jan. 2. He had been a healthy scratch in each of the first four games following the All-Star break, but Kaminsky received the nod in this one while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Willy Hernangomez both received DNP-Coach's Decision designations in this one.
