James Michael McAdoo: Heading to Italy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo signed a contract Sunday with Auxilium Pallacanestro Torino of the Italian Serie A, George Efkarpides of reports.

McAdoo, a North Carolina product, will unite with another Tar Heels legend in Italy in former NBA coach Larry Brown, who was named the club's new bench boss in June. The 25-year-old forward spent last season in Philadelphia, logging four appearances at the NBA level and spending the majority of his time with the G League's Delaware 87ers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo did not partake in Tuesday's 104-89 win over Santa Cruz due to a knee injury.

McAdoo has been sidelined since Feb. 3 due to his knee injury and it's unknown just how much long he will be held out of action. The 6-9 forward is averaging 10.2 points and 6.4 rebounds for Agua Caliente during his second season in the G-League.

James Michael McAdoo: Released by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo was released by the Sixers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

The Sixers reached an agreement with Demetrius Jackson on Monday, so they'll part ways with McAdoo in order to free up a roster spot. The former North Carolina standout, who spent his first three NBA seasons with Golden State, appeared in only three games for the Sixers this season while spending time in the G-League.

76ers' James Michael McAdoo: Assigned to G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo was assigned to the G-League on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

McAdoo made his season debut on Saturday against the Warriors, posting five points (1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and one turnover across seven minutes. That said, he's not a part of the regular rotation and will be reassigned in order to get him as many minutes as possible to further his development. McAdoo is a two-way player and should spend the majority of season in the G-League.

76ers' James Michael McAdoo: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo is active for Saturday's game against the Raptors, Brian Seltzer of reports.

With Joel Embiid out for rest, McAdoo will suit up for the first time this season. While he's active, he likely won't see too much action as he's behind the likes of Ben Simmons, Dario Saric, Robert Covington and Justin Anderson on the depth chart.

76ers' James McAdoo: Cleared to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo (hamstring) will play Monday against Boston, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McAdoo missed the team's last preseason game Friday against Boston due to a hamstring issue, but the injury was never considered overly serious. Expect the North Carolina product to return to a limited bench role, as was the case when he was last active Wednesday against Memphis.

76ers' James McAdoo: Expects to return Monday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo (hamstring) was limited during Sunday's practice, but is considered probable for Monday's preseason tilt with the Celtics, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McAdoo was held out of the team's preseason contest Friday due to a tight hamstring, though the injury was never considered serious, making it unsurprising that he should be back in the lineup Monday. Looking forward to the regular season, McAdoo is on a two-way contract and will spend the majority of the campaign in the G-League, so he'll remain off the fantasy radar when at full strength.

76ers' James McAdoo: Questionable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo is questionable for Friday's preseason game against the Celtics due to left hamstring tightness, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

It's unclear when McAdoo suffered the injury. That said, it doesn't seem to be too serious considering there's been no mention of it prior to Friday's injury report.

76ers' James McAdoo: Inks two-way deal with Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo signed a two-way contract with the 76ers on Wednesday, Brian Seltzer of reports.

After winning his second NBA title in three seasons with the Warriors earlier in the summer, McAdoo wasn't extended a qualifying offer and became a free agent. The forward wasn't able to receive a guaranteed offer from any team, so he'll ultimately head to Philadelphia, where he'll likely function as a deep reserve for the NBA team. If the 76ers are able to maintain stronger health in the frontcourt this season, McAdoo could end up spending most of the campaign with Philadelphia's D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Set to become unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Warriors and will become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Haynes of reports.

McAdoo finished his third season with the Warriors playing in a career-high 52 games, but averaged just 2.8 points and 1.7 rebounds across 8.8 minutes per contest. While his value could certainly increase with a change of scenery, McAdoo is still unlikely to pick up a huge role no matter where he lands, which should keep him off the radar in the majority of leagues. Still, it's worth it to keep an eye on where he lands to determine what kind of role he'll have.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Swipes career-high four steals as starter in regular season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo managed eight points (3-6 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four steals, two blocks, and one assist in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 109-94 win over the Lakers.

McAdoo recorded a career high in steals while starting in place of Draymond Green (rest), and the former Tar Heel did a bit of everything else as well. McAdoo's role is likely to be more limited during the playoffs, but his 52 regular season appearances in 2016-17 is just four less than he had in the last two years combined.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Will join starting five Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo will start Wednesday's game against the Suns, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports.

Draymond Green is getting the night off for rest, so the Warriors are opting to give McAdoo a shot with the starting five. Wednesday will mark McAdoo's first start of the season and considering he's averaged just 8.3 minutes per game this year, he should see a substantial bump in playing time while working with the top unit.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Available to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo (head) is active and available to play in Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

McAdoo left Tuesday's game against the Rockets after a collision with Trevor Ariza, which opened a cut above his left eye brow. The injury was never expected to keep him on the sidelines and he's now officially been given the go ahead to make his return, so look for him to take on his usual role off the bench. McAdoo hasn't logged double-digit minutes since Mar. 11, so he'll likely be restricted to just a few spot minutes, which keeps him off the fantasy radar.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Probable Wednesday vs. Spurs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo (head) is considered probable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Anthony Slater of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

McAdoo was forced to exit Tuesday's win over the Rockets after he suffered a cut above his left eye brow that required seven stitches. Fortunately for McAdoo he didn't suffer a concussion, which would have likely held him out for multiple games. His injury isn't expected to inhibit his ability to play, and it won't be surprising to see him in his normal role if he plays Wednesday.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Suffers facial injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo will not return to Tuesday's game after receiving seven stitches above his left eye brow.

The injury occurred when Rockets' forward Trevor Ariza accidentally landed on McAdoo. Along with receiving stitches, the 24-year-old was evaluated for a concussion, a test he ultimately passed. He will finish his night with an assist and a rebound in four minutes played. His status for Wednesday's matchup against the Spurs is unknown at this time.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Leaves Tuesday's game with head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo, who was forced from Tuesday's game against the Rockets with a laceration to his head, is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, Marc J. Spears of reports.

Rockets' forward Trevor Ariza appeared to accidentally land on McAdoo after a collision, which opened a laceration to his head. McAdoo is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be able to return to Tuesday's game. Look for an additional update to be provided in the near future, which should clarify whether or not he could miss time with any concussion-like symptoms.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Receives season-high minutes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo scored four points (2-7 FG, 0-2 FT) along with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots over a season-high 23 minutes in Saturday's 107-85 loss to San Antonio.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr's decision to sit four of his rotation regulars provided ample opportunity for the B-teamers like McAdoo. He came off the bench, but had more of an impact than starter Kevon Looney. Over the past month, McAdoo has emerged as the third power forward ahead of Looney. However, when Kerr is dressing his regulars, the playing time is minimal and not particularly helpful for fantasy owners.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Playing time dropping off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo finished with zero points and one steal across three minutes in a 119-111 win over the Hawks on Monday.

Kevin Durant (knee) has missed the Warriors' last three games and looks at risk of missing the rest of the regular season, but McAdoo hasn't been called upon to take on extra playing time in his absence. He's played in only two of those three games, logging six total minutes. McAdoo had regularly been seeing minutes in the teens for much of February, but it seems a healthy David West and Zaza Pachulia have pushed him down in the pecking order in the frontcourt.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Near double-double off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo provided 10 points (5-6 FG), nine rebounds and one block over 17 minutes in Thursday's 133-120 win over the Clippers.

McAdoo put together what was his best overall outing of the season, posting his second double-digit scoring effort in the last four games in the process. The third-year pro's scoring total equaled a season high, while the rebounds served as a high-water mark on the campaign. McAdoo has now played between 17 and 20 minutes in four of the last five contests with David West (thumb) sidelined, and his solid play may be earning him a slightly more expanded role in the frontcourt rotation even after the latter returns.

Warriors' James McAdoo: Tallies season-high 10 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAdoo contributed 10 points (5-8 FG), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 19 minutes during a 144-98 win over the Clippers on Saturday.

McAdoo's 10 points marked his highest scoring total of the season, just one game after he had tied his season high with eight points. A good chunk of his minutes came in garbage time, but he is benefiting from David West's (thumb) absence by posting his best two-game stretch of the season over the last two outings. McAdoo has received a combined 39 minutes over the last two games, and we'll see if the increased workload continues Sunday against the Trail Blazers.
