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.

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.

February 4, 2019 12:04 PM
Cavaliers' Nik Stauskas: Traded to Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas has been traded to the Cavaliers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Stauskas, along with Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks, are heading to Cleveland in exchange for Rodney Hood. Prior to the trade, Stauskas averaged 6.1 points over 15.3 minutes per game. In Cleveland, he will likely slot into a reserve role on the wing, and should offer depth and play a similar role to what he did in Portland.

Trail Blazers' Nik Stauskas: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Utah, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Stauskas exited Saturday's contest against Atlanta due to a left knee injury, and the issue is evidently significant enough to hold him out for another game. He's struggled even when healthy of late, as he's averaging 5.2 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists over his previous six matchups.

Trail Blazers' Nik Stauskas: Out for remainder of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against the Hawks, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Stauskas played just five minutes before aggravating the sore left knee that sidelined him for Portland's previous game Thursday versus the Suns. He finished with just one rebound and no points (0-1 FG). Until the Trail Blazers provide an update on his status, Stauskas should be tentatively considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Trail Blazers' Nik Stauskas: Upgraded to available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (knee) has been upgraded to available for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Stauskas was previously listed as doubtful, but it seems he's feeling better than anticipated. With Damian Lillard expected to rest due to a sore knee, it's possible Stauskas sees more time than usual.

Trail Blazers' Nik Stauskas: Listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Atlanta.

Stauskas missed Thursday's game against Phoenix with soreness in his knee, and it looks as though the same issue will keep him out for a second straight game. Consider the Michigan product, whose role has varied for much of the season, day-to-day for the time being, with Seth Curry set to pick up a few extra minutes in his place.

January 24, 2019 08:04 PM
Trail Blazers' Nik Stauskas: Out Thursday vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stauskas has been ruled out of Thursday's game against Phoenix due to knee soreness, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Stauskas didn't show any signs of injury prior to being ruled out and his status comes as a bit of a surprise. His absence could mean some extra minutes for Jake Layman and Evan Turner. Looking ahead, Stauskas' next chance to play will be Saturday against the Hawks.
