Bennett (knee) was waived by the Rockets on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This move comes after Bennett underwent arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the month. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick will likely have to prove his health before finding an opportunity elsewhere.
Bennett will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
It's unclear how long the procedure will keep Bennett sidelined, but it sounds like it will prevent the former first overall pick from earning a spot on the roster for the start of the season.
Bennett agreed to a non-guarenteed deal with the Rockets on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Bennett was notoriously drafted No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers in 2013. He ultimately failed to provide much of anything on the court and bounced around between four teams during his four seasons in the league. However, his pursuit of an NBA career has continued since in the G League. He averaged 12.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.1 triples, and 0.9 steals across 20.9 minutes per game last season for the Agua Caliente Clippers. Most notably, he shot 45.3 percent from beyond the arc on 4.7 attempts per game, which likely caught general manager Daryl Morey's eye.
Bennett (knee) did not play in Thursday's loss to South Bay.
Bennett has been incredibly productive with Agua Caliente, but he's only played in 25 of the team's 43 games. Without any idea when he'll return, look for Marc Loving and Johnathan Motley to continue to soak up the minutes.
Bennett (knee) did not play in Wednesday's contest against Windy City.
The veteran forward has missed the last four contest with a knee injury, even extending past the extended G League break. Bennett's season has been mired by injuries, but when healthy, he's been a potent scoring threat nearly every time on the court.
Bennett (undisclosed) came off the bench Tuesday and finished the win with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist.
Bennett missed time near the holidays with an undisclosed injury, but was back in full effect Tuesday. Ontario Agua Caliente has been limited by injuries for much of the season which has forced Bennett into a substantial role in the team's second unit. Should he stay healthy, Bennett could creep towards a fantasy relevant role in any format, particular if the likes of the players ahead of him on the depth chart, Johnathan Motley or Angel Delgado, succumb to an injury.
Bennett (undisclosed) did not play in Friday's loss to Stockton.
Bennett has missed a smattering of games this year with a variety of minuscule injuries, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Friday's designation fits under that category. He'll aim to take the court Tuesday.
Bennett (ankle) finished Wednesday's win with 36 points (12-13 FG, 8-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Welcome back Anthony Bennett! The former No. 1 overall pick missed the previous two games thanks to an ankle injury, but that didn't seem to limit him Friday, finishing with a season-high 36 points across 26 minutes.
Bennett (ankle) did not play in Wednesday's loss to the Charge.
Bennett has now missed two games with a reoccurring ankle injury. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick has played in six games with Agua Caliente this season, averaging 9.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.5 blocks over 17.6 minutes per game.
Bennett has signed with Agua Caliente Clippers for the 2018-19 season.
The number one selection from the 2013 NBA draft will be a key member of Agua Caliente's opening day roster after averaging 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.6 made threes per game last season. The Canadian power forward split his time last year between the Northern Arizona Suns and later the Maine Red Claws. This season will mark Bennett's fourth year in the NBA G League.
Bennett accounted for 26 points (10-22 FG, 6-16 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block during the Red Claws' 118-111 loss to the Herd.
The former first pick in the NBA Draft has now strung together consecutive games of scoring more than 26 points. Bennett is averaging 28.5 points over his last two games while knocking down 41.9 percent of his shots from three-point range. Currently, the 25-year-old Canadian product is adding 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest for the Red Claws this season.
Bennett banged out 31 points (11-23 FG, 7-15 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in Tuesday's 126-125 road loss to the Delaware 87ers.
The bruising power forward extended his streak of double-digit scoring to nine straight games during this close loss on the road. This was unfortunately the sixth straight loss for the Crustacean Nation. The seven made threes matched a career high for the burly Canadian. Bennett should continue to see big minutes for the Red Claws' last four games. The Celtics, dealing with multiple injuries, will probably keep Kadeem Allen and Jabari Bird up with the parent club for the foreseeable future. One more injury in Boston, and Bennett might find himself in Celtic green.
Bennett added 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal during Friday's 114-108 loss to the BayHawks.
Bennett was just able to reach double figures in scoring Friday night, as it was his eight straight game with 10-plus points. The former number-one pick in the NBA Draft is averaging 13.6 points and 6.5 rebounds this season with the Red Claws.
Bennett returned to the G-League for Wednesday's game against the Canton Charge and finshed with 12 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 19 minutes.
Bennett had been away from the team while competing for Team Canada in a FIBA qualifier, but he rejoined the Red Claws earlier in the week and did not appear to miss a beat. All 12 of Bennett's points came in the first half.
Bennett is absent from the Red Claws in order to join the Canadian National team for their FIBA World Cup qualification games.
Bennett should return to Crustacean Nation after February 25th. In the mean time, he'll be enjoying the warmer weather of Nassau, competing in FIBA Group D against the national teams from the Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands and host-nation Bahamas. The burly power forward should return to the Claws before their Wednesday, February 28th game at Canton. That means he'll miss, unfortunately, two more games in addition to last night's absence.
Bennett banged out 23 points (8-22 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 40 minutes in Monday's 102-94 loss to the Raptors 905.
Both Bennett and Kadeem Allen chipped in 40 minutes of run for the Red Claws as Maine stuck to an eight man rotation. Bennett's 15 three-point attempts were a season high, as clearly the organization wants to mold Bennett into the prototypical "stretch four". He's now attempted 10.6 threes over his past five games. Bennett and his Red Claw teammates won't play again until Wednesday, February 21st due to the All-Star break, though Devin Williams will participate in the International Challenge as part of the USA roster.
Bennett delivered 24 points (9-13 FG, 6-9 3Pt), seven rebounds, and three assists across 39 minutes in the Maine Red Claws' Friday 123-112 loss to Northern Arizona.
Bennett's 39 minutes were a team high. His hot shooting streak from behind the arc was not enough for the Red Claws to get past the Suns, who traded Bennett to Maine in late December. His 24 points by far exceed the 12.9 points per game he's averaging this season.
Bennett has rejoined the Northern Arizona Suns.
Bennett stepped away from the team to participate in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 Americas Qualifiers for Team Canada, but he's back with the Suns and is expected to return to game action this week. Prior to his departure, the former No. 1 pick was averaging 12.3 points and 7.2 rebounds in six games (all starts).
Bennett was let go by the Suns on Wednesday, Chris Mannix of The Vertical reports.
Bennett has again failed to impress a front office enough to warrant an NBA roster spot. It's possible he pursues options in the G-League, but overseas might be where he ends up long term.
Bennett is dealing with a low back strain and has been ruled out for Monday's preseason matchup against the Jazz, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
The exact severity remains unclear, so consider Bennett day-to-day moving forward. Bennett's next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, but tentatively consider him questionable for that contest.
