Rockets' David Nwaba: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba will come off the bench Thursday against the Spurs, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Nwaba will come off the bench but should still see plenty of run Thursday. The Rockets are without James Harden (traded), John Wall (knee) and Eric Gordon (lower leg), among others.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Making another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba will make another start Wednesday against Indiana, Rockets play-by-play voice Craig Ackerman reports.

He got the nod in place of Danuel House (back) on Monday, and he'll draw another start Wednesday with House still out. Nwaba played 29 minutes in Monday's loss to Dallas, but he finished with just five points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Dallas, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Nwaba will return to the starting five in place of the injured Danuel House who's out with a back injury. The undrafted forward out of Cal Poly started the first two games this season for John Wall and averaged 12.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 29.5 minutes of action.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Starting for Wall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba will start Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

With John Wall (COVID-19) among others sidelined for the Rockets, Nwaba will join the starting five and should see significant action. During the preseason, he saw 16.3 minutes per game and averaged 6.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Plays 17 minutes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba had just four points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 17 minutes during Thursday's 128-106 preseason victory over San Antonio.

Nwaba continues to work his way back from a torn Achilles, playing 17 minutes in the victory. The Production is nothing to write home about; however, the fact he is playing 17 minutes in a preseason game certainly bodes well for his availability come the season proper. His exact role is unclear but he does have the ability to contribute on both ends of the floor, as well as defend multiple positions. He is far from a standard league asset but could be a player to watch in deeper formats.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Healthy for start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (Achilles) said that he'll be ready for the start of the season, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

Nwaba intends to make his return for the start of the upcoming season after undergoing right Achilles' tendon surgery in January. The 6-foot-4 guard wouldn't figure to be much more than a deep bench option for Houston at this point, especially following such a major surgery.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Rockets pick up option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockets exercised Nwaba's (Achilles) $1.6 million team option for the 2020-21 season Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba signed on with the Rockets before the bubble but did not play in Orlando as he worked back from a torn Achilles. It's unclear when Nwaba will be ready to return to game action, but the Rockets will keep him around as a deep bench option.

Rockets' David Nwaba: Signs two-year deal with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (Achilles) signed a two-year contract with the Rockets on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba won't play during the resumed season while he continues his rehab for the right Achilles' tendon surgery he required in January, but the Rockets will monitor his recovery over the next months before deciding whether to exercise his team option for 2020-21. The defensive-minded wing has played 161 games across his four seasons, averaging 6.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 combined steals-plus-blocks across 20.5 minutes.

David Nwaba: Waived by Nets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (Achilles) was waived by the Nets on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba is set to miss the remainder of the season due to a torn Achilles, prompting Brooklyn to part ways with the 26-year-old. Prior to getting hurt, Nwaba posted averages of 5.2 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per tilt (20 games).

Nets' David Nwaba: Suffers torn right Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba has been diagnosed with a right torn Achilles tendon, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba wasn't putting any weight on his right leg on the way to the locker room, and his season is over after further testing confirmed a torn Achilles tendon. Wilson Chandler, Dzanan Musa and Joe Harris could see extra minutes with Nwaba lost for the rest of the year.

Nets' David Nwaba: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba was helped to the locker room after suffering a right leg injury during Thursday's game against San Antonio, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba appears unlikely to return to this one after he was unable to put any pressure on his right leg on the way to the locker room. Details surrounding his injury should surface in the coming days.

Nets' David Nwaba: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (ankle) will play Thursday against the Spurs, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Nwaba was considered probable for Thursday due to an ankle injury, but as expected, he's been given the green light to take the court. He's averaging 8.6 points and 2.6 rebounds over his last five matchups off the bench.

Nets' David Nwaba: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (ankle) is probable for Thursday's game against the Spurs, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba is nursing a right ankle sprain, though the issue isn't expected to keep him from taking the court Thursday in San Antonio. He's appeared in all eight games for the Spurs this month, posting averages of 8.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 16.6 minutes.

Nets' David Nwaba: Scores 10 points in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds and one block in 18 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 109-106 loss against the Heat.

Nwaba has been a healthy DNP scratch in eight games already, including five of the last 10, but he has scored in double digits in his last two outings. Due to those inconsistencies when it comes to the playing time and his lack of production, Nwaba's upside shouldn't be very high going forward.

Nets' David Nwaba: Healthy scratch for Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Monday's 108-106 win over the Cavaliers.

Nwaba has combined to play just 18 minutes across his last four appearances, and he didn't get the chance to take on his most recent former team in this one. Unless Nwaba's minutes average (9.9 minutes per game through 10 appearances) increases significantly, he can avoided across most formats.

Nets' David Nwaba: Grabs four rebounds Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba finished with two points (1-3 FGG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds in 10 minutes Wednesday against Indiana.

Nwaba wasn't able to add much statistically Wednesday, though his touches were relatively limited. While the fourth-year forward's averaging 13.7 points per game so far this year, he's taken just four total shots from the field in four games. While Nwaba's playing a vital rotational role for the Nets, his touches simply are too few and too far between for him to be worth much fantasy-wise at this point in the year.

Nets' David Nwaba: Solid effort in Nets' debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba compiled 18 points (7-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 23 minutes during Friday's 137-89 preseason victory over Franca.

Nwaba brought the energy Friday, putting together a nice outing in his preseason debut for the Nets. He has flashed a somewhat fantasy-friendly game during short periods of his career but is yet to find himself a consistent role. It is unlikely that it is going to come this season despite this nice performance. He could be an every night part of the rotation but would likely need an injury to catapult him into standard league consideration.

Nets' David Nwaba: Signs with Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba agreed to a two-year contract with the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nwaba played 51 games for the Cavaliers last season, recording 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 19.3 minutes per game. He'll provide Brooklyn some added bench depth as a capable defender and rebounder.

Cavaliers' David Nwaba: Becomes unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nwaba will not be extended a qualifying offer by the Cavaliers, making him an unrestricted free agent, Chris Fedor of reports.

Nwaba has shown promise as a defender and solid rebounder for his position. Between Chicago and Cleveland, he's started 35 games across the past two seasons. He may garner interest from teams as a rotational bench option.
