Zipser will not sign a contract with the Nets, Emiliano Carchia of Sportnado reports.
Zipser had agreed in principle to sign with Brooklyn following the release of Alan Williams, who was expected to ink a deal in the Chinese Basketball Association. However, amidst complications, Williams decided not to play in China, and the Nets opted to bring him back on a two-way deal. As a result, the roster spot that was open for Zipser to take has been filled. It's unclear if Zipser will continue to pursue an NBA deal this season.
Zipser has agreed in principle to join the Nets on a two-way contract, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports. The Nets are expected to finalize the contract by Jan. 15.
Zipser has already left his native Germany for the United States, so it's expected he'll put pen to paper with the Nets in the coming days. A 2016 second-round pick of the Bulls, Zipser appeared in 98 games at the NBA level over the previous two seasons before Chicago released him in July. Zipser hasn't been playing competitively since being cut loose, but he should be a fixture with the G League's Long Island Nets once he's officially under contract. He'll fill the two-way spot that was vacated by Alan Williams, who recently parted ways with the Nets to pursue an opportunity in China.
Zipser was released by the Bulls on Saturday, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
In order to make room for Jabari Parker's contract -- he's owed $20 million this season -- the Bulls chose to waive Zipser. The forward appeared in 54 games last season, seeing 15.2 minutes per game and averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds while shooting under 40 percent for a second consecutive season.
Zipser underwent foot surgery on Friday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Zipser missed the final nine games of the 2017-18 campaign due to a broken left foot, warranting surgery. A timeline for recovery has not been provided for Zipser, who averaged 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 15.2 minutes in 54 appearances last season.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Wednesday's season finale against the Pistons.
Zipser will finish the 2017-18 campaign missing the final nine games of the season due to a foot injury. Prior to it, he played in 54 games, posting averages of just 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 15.2 minutes. It was a disappointing season overall for second-year wing, as his playing time took a hit and he wasn't able to stay healthy. He'll have plenty of time prior to training camp to get back to full strength, but as of now, his $1.54 million contract for the 2018-19 campaign is not guaranteed.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Nets.
Zipser has been out since the end of March with a foot injury and at this point, is expected to miss both Monday's game against the Nets and Wednesday's season finale vs. the Pistons. That likely means Zipser will finish the 2017-18 campaign playing in 54 games, while posting averages of 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 15.2 minutes.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out on the team's game notes in advance of Saturday's matchup with the Nets.
The listing isn't terribly surprising, and it will be Zipser's seventh straight absence as the Bulls move into the final few days of the regular season. At this point, it's very much unclear if Zipser will see the floor again in 2017-18.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Celtics.
Zipser will remain on the sidelines a sixth straight game and at this point, seems unlikely to return to action at any point over the last week of the season. His next shot to get back on the court will be Saturday against Brooklyn, but at this point, that seems very unlikely.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.
Zipser is set to sit out a fifth consecutive game, as he's yet to shake some lingering foot soreness. With just four outings left on the schedule following Tuesday's contest, there's certainly a chance Zipser is shut down entirely with nothing left to play for. That said, until the Bulls give a conrete timetable for his return, Zipser will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. Look for David Nwaba and Denzel Valentine to handle small forward duties again Tuesday.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Zipser will miss a fourth straight game with what the team is calling a sore left foot, and he'll be joined in street clothes by Zach LaVine (knee) and Kris Dunn (toe). Consider the wing questionable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.
Zipser (foot) will not play Friday against Orlando.
Zipser will miss a third straight game with what the team is calling "left foot pain." Consider Zipser day-to-day going forward, but the Bulls likely won't rush him back into action, by any means.
Zipser (undisclosed) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Heat.
Zipser is slated to miss a second straight game, as he continues to deal with a sore left foot. Fantasy owners should still monitor his status up until tip-off, however, as this is coming from the game notes and they can be somewhat unreliable at times. With Zipser out, look for David Nwaba and Denzel Valentine to pick up more minutes on the wing.
Zipser (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against Houston, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Zipser has been in and out of the lineup over the last month-plus, and he'll be held out Tuesday after playing 16 minutes in Saturday's loss to Detroit. The 24-year-old has struggled, for the most part, this season and shouldn't be on most fantasy owners' radars.
Zipser will play Saturday against the Pistons, K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune reports.
Zipser was originally a game-time decision, although it's unknown for what reason. With Lauri Markkanen (back) ruled out of the contest, Zipser could see increased minutes along with Bobby Portis and Noah Vonleh on Saturday night.
Zipser will be a game-time call Saturday against Detroit.
It's still unclear what's keeping Zipser on the sideline, but it appears as though he'll have a chance to get back into the rotation Saturday. If he's ultimately cleared to play, he'll help absorb some of the minutes vacated by the absence of Lauri Markkanen (back).
Zipser will not play Friday against the Bucks, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The reason for the absence hasn't been disclosed, but Ziper will take a seat after seeing double-digit minutes in each of the last four games. Consider him questionable to play Saturday in Detroit.
Zipser (undisclosed) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Bucks, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
It's unclear if Zipser is dealing with some sort of injury or the Bulls are simply considering resting him in the first night of a back-to-back set. Either way, fantasy owners should plan on Zipser being sidelined after starting each of the last three games with a slew of Bulls' starters sitting out. Lauri Markkanen (back) said he's optimistic about playing Friday and would immediately reclaim the starting power forward role. If not, guys like Bobby Portis and Noah Vonleh would handle the bulk of the minutes.
Zipser will enter the starting five for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Zipser made his return to the lineup Thursday against the Grizzlies, coming off the bench and logging 13 minutes. However, the Bulls are now dealing with a slew of injuries, which will keep the likes of Kris Dunn (toe), Zach LaVine (knee) and Lauri Markkanen (back) out of the lineup. For that reason, Zipser will move into the starting lineup and should see a fairly significant uptick in minutes, though it's unclear if he'll have any restrictions considering it's only his second game back.
Zipser had just four points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and three rebounds in 13 minutes during Thursday's 111-110 victory over the Grizzlies.
Zipser made his return from a nine-game absence, finishing with just four points and three rebounds. The return of Zipser could have an impact on the minutes of some others but he is still a non-factor in most leagues and belongs on the waivers almost everywhere.
Zipser (foot) will play in Thursday's game against the Grizzlies and is expected to be in the rotation, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Zipser has been sidelined since Feb. 24 with a sore foot, but finally appears ready to make his return to the lineup. Coach Fred Hoiberg indicated that he expects Zipser to rejoin the rotation right away, though considering the lengthy absence, it wouldn't be surprising if he saw some limitations early on. For that reason, fantasy owners will likely want to temper expectations for the 24-year-old forward in his first game back.
