Rockets' Dante Exum: Moved to Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (calf) was sent to the Rockets in the blockbuster move that resulted in James Harden landing in Brooklyn, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Exum is expected to remain sidelined until early March due to a strained right calf, and even once he returns, he likely won't have a significant role with the Rockets. At best, he'd occupy a backup point guard role, but he's struggled to do that effectively in the past.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Out 6-to-8 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cavaliers announced Wednesday that Exum (calf) will be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Tuesday that the strained right calf Exum sustained in the opening minute of Monday's loss to the Magic would sideline the guard for 1-to-2 months, but the Cavaliers' own report provides a tighter timeline for his return. The calf strain is just the latest in a long line of a major injuries for the No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, who has played more than 45 games just once in the past five seasons. Even if he experiences no snags in his rehab, Exum could remain sidelined until the All-Star break in early March.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum (calf) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Magic.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Solid outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum generated 14 points (3-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in Saturday's loss to Miami.

Exum, who saw extended minutes again, managed to reach double figures for a second consecutive game. Although he's shot the ball well since joining Cleveland, Exum's been limited to 17.2 minutes per contest on average. Due to his relatively limited role, he's been unable to return consistent fantasy value and is averaging just 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. Unless he can find his way to an increased workload, Exum's not a viable option beyond the deepest of leagues.

Cavaliers' Dante Exum: Logs 15 minutes versus Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Exum managed two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes during Thursday's 124-112 loss to the Wizards.

Exum has earned at least 12 minutes in all 12 of his appearances since being acquired by the Cavaliers, this after averaging 11.1 minutes in December and 6.8 minutes in November. However, apart from one isolated performance against the Timberwolves back on Jan. 5, Exum hasn't been much of a factor from a statistical perspective. Given that the team is likely to continue prioritizing the development of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, Exum is probably best reserved for use in deep leagues.
