Nik Stauskas: Generates 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas posted 23 points (8-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes in Monday's 127-102 playoff win over G League Ignite.

Stauskas was one of three Raptors 905 players to produce more than 20 points to help the G League squad move on to the semifinal round. The 27-year-old also added three steals. Stauskas continues to be a steady performer, as he recorded 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per contest while connecting on 42.4 percent of his field goals during the regular season.

Nik Stauskas: Registers 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas posted 27 points (8-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists across 37 minutes in Monday's 119-117 win over G League Memphis.

Stauskas endured a tough shooting stretch earlier in February, but he's back on track after contributing 42 points and hitting 45 percent of his field goals over the last two games. The 27-year-old old is locked into the starting five in the G League bubble. Through the first eight games, he's averaged 16.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists per contest.

Nik Stauskas: Solid effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas recorded 15 points (5-14 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and an assist across 33 minutes in Sunday's 122-117 loss to G League Fort Wayne.

Stauskas has been a fixture in the starting five during the G League season, and he's averaging 15.1 points per game while hitting 41.8 percent of field goals. The 27-year-old continues to struggle from beyond the arc. Despite shooting more than seven three-pointers per game, he's connected on just 27.6 percent of those shots.

Nik Stauskas: Tough shooting performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas posted two points (0-7 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and eight assists across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 121-115 win over G League Agua Caliente.

Staukas started Wednesday's game, but he struggled once again from beyond the arc. He's averaging 6.6 attempted three-pointers per game, but he's hit just 21 percent of those shots. The 27-year-old should straighten things out eventually, as he hit 37.2 percent from range back in 2018-19 at the NBA level.

Nik Stauskas: Puts up 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas posted 23 points (7-16 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds and two assists in Saturday's 113-105 loss to G League Ignite.

Stauskas has averaged 19 points per game to start the season, but he's struggling from behind the arc, hitting just 27.3 percent of three-pointers. The 27-year-old could vie for an NBA contract if he keeps up his recent play.

Nik Stauskas: Drains 19 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas recorded 19 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's 132-105 win over G League Rio Grande.

The 27-year-old spent last season in Spain, but he's back in North America now hoping to play his way onto an NBA roster. Stauskas was solid in the G League season opener, leading his squad in points and finishing second in rebounds.

Nik Stauskas: Waived by Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas was waived by the Bucks on Saturday, Eric Woodyard of reports.

Stauskas signed a one-year deal with the Bucks in late November, but the 27-year-old was unable to keep his spot on the roster ahead of the regular season. It's unclear whether he'll land another deal during the 2020-21 campaign after spending last season in Spain.

Bucks' Nik Stauskas: Signs one-year deal with Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas and the Bucks agreed to a one-year deal Thursday, Zack Lowe of ESPN reports.

The No. 8 pick in 2014 did not appear in an NBA game last season, but he'd previously spent time with the Kings, 76ers, Nets, Cavaliers and Trail Blazers. Milwaukee likely won't be able to offer Stauskas an overly significant role, but he could carve out some bench minutes as a three-point specialist.

Nik Stauskas: Signs in Spain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas signed a one-year contract with Baskonia of the EuroLeague, reports.

Stauskas split last season between Portland and Cleveland, and while he hit better than 37 percent of his 2.8 three-point attempts per game, the Michigan product was unable to find a new home in free agency. Rather than waiting until training camp or signing a non-guaranteed deal, Stauskas will head to Spain, where he'll have an opportunity for a greater role.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (back) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.

Stauskas missed Sunday's matchup against the Spurs due to a bruised back, and his status remains up in the air for Cleveland's final regular-season game. The Cavs should have a better idea of his availability closer to tipoff.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (back) will be inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Spurs, Spencer Davies reports.

Stauskas reportedly suffered a lower back bruised during Friday's game against the Warriors and the injury will indeed keep him sidelined for Sunday's matchup. It will be Stauskas' first missed game since Feb. 21.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Spurs due to a lower back bruise.

Stauskas has emerged from Friday's loss with an injury, and it's unclear if he'll play Sunday. That said, his absence wouldn't change much for the Cavs, as he's seeing only 11.9 minutes per game across the past nine.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Drops 17 points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas produced 17 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes in Monday's 126-119 victory over the Pistons.

Stauskas has done next to nothing on the Cavs so far, making Monday's performance more of an outlier than anything else. He should see just about 20 minutes per game, although maybe his shooting performance will open a door to more minutes going forward.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Scores three in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas finished with three points (1-9 FG, 1-7 3Pt), five rebounds, an assist and a block in 20 minutes Monday against the Knicks.

Stauskas made his first appearance in a Cavs uniform since the trade, and despite his poor shooting day, he saw a solid chunk of minutes in a 107-104 victory. If this first game is any indication, the Michigan product could be in store for a bigger role off the bench than initially expected.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Returns to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas agreed Monday with the Cavaliers on a contract that will keep in Cleveland for the rest of the season, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Cavaliers previously acquired Stauskas in a deal with the Trail Blazers on Feb. 3 before he was dealt to Houston three days later. He was then rerouted to Indiana the following day before being waived by the Pacers. While NBA rules don't allow for players to re-sign with teams they were traded to in the same season, Stauskas is eligible to rejoin the Cavaliers since he had been traded again to another team and subsequently waived. Though he'll be on the books for the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign, Stauskas seems unlikely to see extensive action off the bench with the rebuilding Cavaliers presumably more inclined to evaluate their wing options who are under contract beyond the current season.

Nik Stauskas: Will be waived by Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas will be waived by the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

It seems the Pacers were only interested in the second-round pick from Houston, and Indiana has subsequently decided to let Stauskas and Baldwin go. Stauskas may not generate much interest on the buyout market, as he's shooting just 34.4 percent from distance this season and was struggling to find minutes on a Portland team bound for the playoffs.

Pacers' Nik Stauskas: Traded to Indiana
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas, along with Wade Baldwin, cash and a second-round pick, have been traded to the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Stauskas has been traded three times this month, and it's possible he's reached his final destination. With Victor Oladipo (knee) out for the season, the Pacers are seemingly looking for some extra backcourt depth. Still, it seems unlikely Stauskas will be given enough run to justify adding in the majority of fantasy formats.

Rockets' Nik Stauskas: Headed to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas was dealt to Houston on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Stauskas, who was initially acquired by Cleveland on Sunday will head to Houston alongside Iman Shumpert and Wade Baldwin as part of a three-team deal that sent Alec Burks to the Kings and Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss to the Cavaliers. Stauskas is averaging 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 15.3 minutes over 44 games with Portland and failed to appear for Cleveland since being acquired. He'll compete for time with Gerald Green and James Ennis although his future role with the Rockets is unclear at the moment.

Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Not available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (knee) won't play Tuesday against Boston, Chris Fedor of reports.

Stauskas has arrived in Cleveland but won't be available to make his team debut after failing to practice with his new squad. Wade Baldwin, who was also sent to the Cavs from the Trail Blazers, also won't play. Both players could be in line to take the court Friday in Washington.

February 5, 2019 03:36 PM
Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Status uncertain for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (knee) didn't arrive in time for the Cavaliers' morning shootaround and is uncertain to play Tuesday against the Celtics, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The Cavaliers acquired Stauskas and Wade Baldwin from the Trail Blazers on Sunday, shipping away Rodney Hood in the deal. Given that neither player has had a chance to practice with Cleveland yet, it's unlikely that coach Larry Drew will summon either from the bench Tuesday as anything more than an emergency option. Stauskas is playing on an expiring contract and is unlikely to have a place in the rebuilding Cavaliers' plans for 2019-20 and beyond, so he'll likely have a tough time finding minutes once he gets acclimated to his new digs.
