Zeller and the Nuggets have agreed to a training camp contract, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Zeller has played for four different teams across the past two seasons, spending time with Brooklyn, Milwaukee, Atlanta and Memphis. Across this stretch, he's averaging 6.8 points and 4.6 rebounds across 16.7 minutes. Given the depth of the Nuggets' roster, it would be surprising if he made the final cut.
Zeller will come off the bench Wednesday against Golden State, Phillip Dean of Fox Sports South reports.
Zeller will come off the bench Wednesday after a spot-start for Tuesday's loss to Detroit. The veteran center's appeared in just five games this season, averaging 7.6 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game.
Zeller finished with 13 points (4-7 FG, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 19 minutes during Tuesday's loss to Detroit.
Zeller managed to do his damage in just 19 minutes before fouling out. The 7th-year center's scored in double-digits in each of the last three games, making 13-of-22 shots from the field over that span. While he's been productive on a per-minute basis, Zeller's seen action in just five games this season and holds his current role on the Grizzlies primarily do to the myriad injuries of players ahead of him on the depth chart.
Zeller will start Tuesday's game against the Pistons, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Zeller will make his first start of the year after making two successful appearances over the past two games, totaling 25 points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block. It's unclear if he'll start Wednesday's finale.
Zeller provided 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, and one block in 26 minutes during Sunday's 129-127 overtime loss to the Mavericks.
Zeller has reached double figures in scoring in both of his first two bouts with the Grizzlies. With Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) and Jaren Jackson (thigh) already ruled out for the rest of the campaign and Joakim Noah (knee) currently hobbled as well, Zeller may continue to earn decent minutes across the final two games this season.
Zeller will sign with the Grizzlies for the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
With just four games left of the regular season, Zeller could actually carve out a decent role with Memphis considering they won't make the postseason and are without Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) and Jaren Jackson (thigh).
Zeller will be available to play in Saturday's game against the NEts, Brad Rowland of Uproxx reports.
Zeller, who was signed to a 10-day deal Friday, will be available to make his Hawks debut Saturday. He last appeared in the NBA during the 2017 season, during which he averaged 6.7 points and 4.6 rebounds in 68 games split between the Nets and the Bucks.
Zeller has agreed to a 10-day contract with the Hawks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Zeller is expected to sign the deal Friday, which means he could be available for the Hawks' game Saturday against one of his former teams in the Nets. Zeller spent last season as a member of both Brooklyn and Milwaukee, appearing in 66 games and averaging 6.7 points and 4.6 rebounds across 16.8 minutes. Atlanta is dealing with some injuries to its frontline, including Dewayne Dedmon (knee) and Omari Spellman (ankle), so Zeller could certainly see some minutes for the Hawks in the meantime.
Zeller was waived by the Bucks on Saturday, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Zeller played a solid role for the Bucks last season, seeing 16.9 minutes per game and averaging 5.9 points and 4.6 rebounds. However, several frontcourt acquisitions, such as Brook Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova, meant Zeller's role would be minimized. There's a strong chance Zeller finds NBA work elsewhere as a depth option at center at some point in the season.
Zeller finished with 17 points (4-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 119-115 preseason loss to Oklahoma City.
Zeller was afforded some extra run as the starting center with the Bucks resting a number of key players. He played well in his temporary role, contributing 17 points including a pair of three-pointers. Zeller is unlikely to see playing time in this vicinity at all during the season and despite the performance, remains a non-factor in most formats.
Zeller will start at center for Tuesday's preseason game against the Thunder, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Bucks are resting the bulk of their typical starting lineup, so a bunch of reserves will be getting the opportunity for an uptick in workload. Zeller is one of those players and he should see an expanded role while picking up the start at center. Along with Zeller, guys like John Henson and Christian Wood should be in line for big minutes in the frontcourt.
Zeller is coming off the bench for Thursday's Game 6 against the Celtics.
Thon Maker, who had two impressive performances during the Bucks' two previous home games in the series, will draw the start. Despite starting, Zeller had only been averaging 13.3 minutes per game, so his role may not change too much despite the switch.
Zeller will get the start at center for Friday's Game 3 against the Celtics, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
Zeller will replace John Henson (back) in the first-unit. The Bucks are thin in the frontcourt, so the big man could be in line for a a relatively healthy workload.
Zeller mustered eight points (4-5 FG) and two rebounds during the Bucks' 119-111 home loss to Brooklyn.
Thursday's performance was Zeller's third straight game above the eight-point mark, as he was decent contributor off the bench for the Bucks despite the loss. So far, the former North Carolina star is averaging 6.7 points and 4.5 rebounds across 63 games during his sixth NBA season.
Zeller will start at center for Friday's game against the Lakers.
The Bucks are set to be without both John Henson (finger) and Thon Maker (groin), so Zeller will pick up the start and should see a very hefty workload. As a result, Zeller makes for an intriguing low-cost center for Friday's slate and can be counted on for solid production for as long as the two aforementioned players remain out. Along with Zeller, Shabazz Muhammad seems likely to see an uptick in minutes in the frontcourt.
Zeller (back) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Clippers, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Zeller missed two games with discomfort in his ribs and back, but he's been cleared to make his return off the bench Wednesday. The 28-year-old averaged 16 minutes over his last five appearances, and his return will likely equate to a lesser role for Thon Maker.
Zeller (back) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Zeller is set to miss a second straight game, as he's still dealing with some discomfort in his ribs when taking contact and performing certain moves. The Buck aren't willing to provide any sort of concrete timetable for his return, but there does appear to be a chance that Zeller misses more time. For now, his next shot to play will be Wednesday against the Laker. Thon Maker should see an increased role as a result, while Marshall Plumlee will provide some emergency depth at the position.
Zeller (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.
Zeller sat out Saturday's game against the Hawks with a sore back and could be in danger of sitting out a second straight contest depending on how he feels following morning shootaround. In his absence Saturday, John Henson (34 minutes) and Thon Maker (12 minutes) absorbed the bulk of his playing time, and they would likely do so again Monday if Zeller can't give it a go.
Zeller is dealing with back soreness and has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It doesn't sound like anything overly serious for Zeller, though he'll still sit out Saturday in hopes the discomfort subsides. Zeller's next shot to take the court will be Monday against the Cavaliers and in the meantime, look for Thon Maker to rejoin the rotation and act as John Henson's backup at center.
Zeller totaled eight points (3-3 FG, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, and two blocks in 20 minutes during Monday's 121-103 win over the Grizzlies.
Zeller appears to be have wrestled away the backup center job behind John Henson, as sophomore Thon Maker's one minute marked the first time he has seen the floor over the last three tilts. Zeller is solid and serviceable while Maker is in a bit of a funk, and it seems that the Bucks might trust the veteran more than the youngster heading into the final stretch of the regular season.
