Rockets' Ray Spalding: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding (calf) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Heat, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Spalding will sit for Friday's preseason finale as he continues to nurse a left calf strain. It remains to be seen whether he will be ready for the start of the regular season next week.

Rockets' Ray Spalding: Out with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against San Antonio due to a left calf strain, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Spalding was scooped up by the Rockets on Thursday, but he's already come down with an injury. He'll have one more chance to make his preseason debut Friday in Miami.

Rockets' Ray Spalding: Picked up off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding was claimed off waivers by the Rockets on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Spalding joined the Hawks on a partially-guaranteed deal in July but was let go early in camp to free up a roster spot for Jordan Sibert. Across 14 games with Dallas and Phoenix last season, Spalding posted averages of 3.9 points and 3.4 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.

Ray Spalding: Let go by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding (undisclosed) was waived by the Hawks on Tuesday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Spalding got to see extended action with the Suns last season and joined the Hawks back in July on a partially-guaranteed contract. It is a tad surprising that the team has elected to let go of Spalding this early in the preseason, but the Hawks likely have plans to sign another player to the open roster spot. Spalding will look to latch on with another team with the start of the regular season still a couple weeks away.

Hawks' Ray Spalding: Gets chance with Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding has agreed to a partially-guaranteed contract with the Hawks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Spalding saw 148 minutes last season, largely with the Suns. He drew three starts with Phoenix, averaging 10.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and a combined 4.0 steals/blocks in those contests. The Hawks are prepared to bring Spalding into training camp, where he'll attempt to showcase his value as a high-energy big man with rebounding and defensive upside.

Suns' Ray Spalding: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding's team option for 2019-20 was declined by the Suns on Friday, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Spalding was a deep bench option for the Suns last season, though he started three games late in the year. Phoenix has other plans, however, and the front office will let Spalding go.

Suns' Ray Spalding: Excels in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding drew his first career start in Friday's 133-126 overtime win over the Pelicans and totaled 21 points (10-13 FG, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals and three blocks across 29 minutes.

With Deandre Ayton and Richaun Holmes both sitting due to ankle injuries, Spalding was the next man up and turned in an excellent all-around performance. The 22-year-old has seen minimal opportunity this season after being selected in the second round by the Mavericks last June. His minutes had mostly been in the single digits since joining the Suns in early March, but he could be in for extended opportunity over the final two games of the campaign.

Suns' Ray Spalding: Will start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding will draw his first career start at center in Friday's game against the Pelicans.

With Deandre Ayton (ankle) and Richaun Holmes (ankle) sidelined the Suns are spread very thin in their frontcourt. As a result, Spalding looks to be in line for the heaviest workload of his young career. He has averaged just 2.4 points and 2.6 rebounds across 7.9 minutes in nine games with the Suns.

Suns' Ray Spalding: Sticking around in Phoenix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding signed a contract with the Suns for the rest of the season Sunday.

Phoenix elected to retain the rookie forward/center after the 10-day contract he signed Feb. 21 lapsed. Spalding has yet to appear in a game for the Suns since joining the organization and may end up seeing most of his opportunities in the G League over the next month.

Suns' Raymond Spalding: Set to join Phoenix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding is expected to sign a 10-day deal with the Suns on Tuesday, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

A second-round pick out of Louisville, Spalding agreed to a four-year contract with the Mavericks in July and played one minute in the team's season opener, but that marked his lone appearance for the club before he was waived in January. He's instead spent much of his first professional season in the G League, where he's averaged 15.9 points (on 51.4 percent shooting from the field), 9.4 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 1.7 assists and 1.6 steals in 30.1 minutes over his 29 appearances. He's unlikely to be a major factor in the rotation for the duration of his stint in Phoenix.

Raymond Spalding: Waived by Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding was waived by the Mavericks on Thursday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Spalding was the roster casualty needed to create space for the influx of players coming over in the team's blockbuster trade with the Knicks on Thursday. The 21-year-old is averaging 15.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and a combined 4.0 blocks/steals per game in the G League and will look to latch on elsewhere as depth.

Mavericks' Raymond Spalding: Promoted to Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding was recalled from the G League on Monday, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Spalding has spent most of the season in the G League, averaging 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 30.1 minutes per game (29 games) with the Texas Legends. The 21-year-old should provide frontcourt depth during his time with the Mavericks.

Raymond Spalding: Completes double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding totaled 20 points (8-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 14 rebounds, four steals and four assists in the win Wednesday over Westchester.

The two-way player has spent the majority of the season in the G League, averaging 15.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 1.7 assists and 1.6 steals through 24 games. An astounding 51.2 percent field goal percentage should come with a grain of salt, as the power forward has done most of his damage in the paint, and his 2.5 turnover rate certainly isn't good given the (lack) of times he's touching the ball, but at 21 years old, Spalding figures to grow into his game as he gets older.

Raymond Spalding: Excellent performance Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding scored 13 points (5-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-6 FT) and earned 15 rebounds along with seven assists, two blocks and two steals in the loss Wednesday to South Bay.

The center has been a statistical force this season, averaging 16.0 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.3 blocks through eight games this season. Spalding figures to be a fantastic fantasy asset so long as he's in the G League, but the two-way player could wind up on the Mavericks at some point, particularly if their record drops in the second half of the 2018 campaign.

Mavericks' Raymond Spalding: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mavericks assigned Spalding to the G League's Texas Legends on Monday, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Spalding has only appeared in one of the Mavericks' six games to date, logging a single minute of action. Given his status as a rookie second-round pick who isn't a member of coach Rick Carlisle's rotation, it's hardly a surprise that the forward will head to the G League. Expect Spalding to receive significant playing time so long as he remains with the Legends.

Mavericks' Raymond Spalding: Hits only shot in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding scored two points (1-1 FG) while adding three rebounds and two steals in eight minutes during Monday's preseason win against the 76ers.

The rookie big man made a nice impact in limited minutes Monday. The 56th overall draft pick in the 2018 draft signed a four-year deal over the offseason, suggesting that the Mavs see something in him. However, presently, he is buried on the depth chart and will likely only have a limited role off the bench while possibly splitting time with the Maverick's G-league affiliate the Texas Legends. For fantasy purposes, unless there are significant injuries to the Mavs' frontcourt, Spalding will likely be off the radar except in keeper leagues.

Mavericks' Raymond Spalding: Will ink four-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spalding agreed to a four-year deal with the Mavericks on Thursday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Spalding was the No. 56 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft after three solid seasons at Louisville where he averaged 8.1 points and 6.3 rebounds over 100 games. A route to playing time behind Dirk Nowitzki and DeAndre Jordan will be tough to find for Spalding, as Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber are the current favorites to soak up reserve frontcourt minutes.
