Chiozza has been recalled from the G League and is available for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Chiozza played the first two games of the season, averaging 3.0 points, 3.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in 17.0 minutes. He's been in the G League since, but could play Tuesday.
Chiozza's contract was converted to a two-way deal by the Wizards on Monday, Fred Katz of The Athletic report.
The Wizards have decided to retain Chiozza for the duration of the season. While the two-way designation indicates that the 23-year-old will spend the majority of the season splitting time between the NBA and G-League, it's a great reward for the second-year pro, who appeared in seven games for the Rockets last year. Until he's permanently in the big leagues, however, Chiozza can't be considered a fantasy asset in season-long leagues.
Chiozza (knee) tallied 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and added seven assists and six rebounds in 27 minutes Sunday in the Wizards' 115-108 preseason loss to the Bucks.
A sore knee limited Chiozza to 14 minutes in the Wizards' previous preseason tilt Friday versus the Knicks, but he received more run Sunday with the injury in the rear-view mirror. While the 23-year-old delivered a quality outing off the bench, he's far from a lock to earn a spot on the Wizards' opening night roster.
Chiozza is dealing with a sore knee and could miss Friday's game against the Knicks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Chiozza, who split time between the G-League and the Rockets last year, is dealing with knee soreness and may miss Friday's game against the Knicks. It's a rough setback for the 23-year-old, who's a longshot to make the team. Chiozza tallied two rebounds and a block in six minutes during his preseason debut, against the Knicks on Monday.
Chiozza will join the Wizards for training camp, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
With the news that Isaiah Thomas (thumb) is expected to miss a few weeks of the regular season, the Wizards will bring in Chiozza for a tryout. He played seven games for Houston last season, totaling six points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.
Chiozza was waived by the Rockets on Tuesday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Chiozza spent most of his time in the G League last season, but appeared in seven games with the Rockets, totaling six points, four assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes. He played in the 2019 summer league with Houston as well, but he didn't impress enough to earn a final roster spot.
Chiozza poured in 12 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and added five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes during the Rockets' 87-78 win over the Jazz in a Las Vegas Summer League game
Chiozza had limited opportunity to make an impression during his rookie season while averaging just 4.7 minutes over seven games, although he did stand out in 47 games of G League action by shooting 40.7 percent from three-point range over 33 contests. Chiozza has made good use of a much more extended opportunity in Las Vegas, averaging 8.5 points (on 52.0 percent shooting), 6.0 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals across 28.5 minutes over four games. Chiozza is a likely training camp invitee, where he'd have a chance to continue making a case to stick in the backcourt rotation.
Chiozza will sign a contract with the Rockets for the remainder of the season, Adam Johnson of 2Ways10Days.com reports.
The Rockets signed Chiozza to a 10-day contract a few weeks ago but parted ways with the former Florida standout after it expired. Now, Houston will bring on the point guard for the rest of the season, but he will not be playoff-eligible. Chiozza is yet to make his NBA debut.
The Rockets elected not to re-sign Chiozza after his 10-day contract expired Monday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The initial 10-day deals for both Chiozza and Terrence Jones lapsed, but the Rockets only plan on retaining the latter for now. Chiozza never ended up making his NBA debut during his week-and-a-half-long run with the Rockets and is expected to head back to the G League ranks.
Chiozza was assigned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Chiozza got the opportunity to suit up for the Rockets' outing against the Hawks on Monday after being recalled from the Vipers. He likely would have had a chance to play had the game reached blowout status, but Houston was never able to pull away, so Chiozza didn't log any playing time.
The Rockets recalled Chiozza from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
After agreeing to a 10-day deal with Chiozza coming out of the All-Star break, the rookie point guard didn't dress for either of the Rockets' first two games of the second half while instead continuing to play at the G League level. He should get his first chance to suit up with the Rockets in Monday's game against the Hawks, though it's unlikely he makes his debut if the contest is competitive throughout.
Chiozza is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Rockets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Chiozza has been phenomenal for Capital City so far this season, and he'll get a shot with Houston as a result. The rookie guard has yet to see action in the NBA, so he'll have to prove he belongs in order to extend his stay with the Rockets. Chiozza will be assigned to the Rio Grande Vipers for evaluation, per Kelly Iko of The Athletic.
Chiozza tallied 27 points (9-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds and two steals in the 118-115 win Tuesday over Westchester.
Chiozza was both the leading scorer and minutes-getter for the Go Go, filling in with the likes of Tiwian Kendley (foot), Devin Robinson (hip) and Jordan McRae (NBA affiliate) all missing from the team's backcourt. It'll be interesting to monitor Chiozza's workload when the trio return to the team, but at least in the case of McRae, it seems likely the two-way player might be better served with the Wizards than down in the G League.
Chiozza posted 16 points ( 5-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 assists, nine rebounds and a steal in the loss Tuesday to Windy City.
The point guard very nearly came away with a triple-double, but it's tough to be too frustrated with his effort given he led the team in assists and rebounds while playing over 40 minutes. A plethora of activity by the Wizards near the trade deadline could wind up yielding minutes at the NBA level for a number of current G League players, but at least for the moment expect Chiozza to continue the status quo with Capital City.
Chiozza finished Monday's win over Grand Rapids with 25 points (7-14 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, five rebounds and three steals.
Chiozza led the team in scoring with the likes of Jordan McRae moved up to the Wizards and a host of other players injured, playing a game-high 41 minutes. The diminutive point guard has soaked up minutes for the Go Go all season, but hasn't exactly been a major scorer, averaging just 12.0 points and 6.2 assists despite playing 32.4 minutes per game through 27 contests.
Chiozza tallied 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 10 assists, seven rebounds and three steals Wednesday over Austin.
Chiozza has been a prime contributor for the Go-Go, averaging 30.3 minutes across 14 games. That hasn't exactly translated to points, but he's averaging 6.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds which should offset the lack of scoring for fantasy players.
Chiozza was waived by the Wizards on Saturday, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Chiozza was unable to do enough to impress the Wizards' coaching staff, and he will not make the final roster. He'll likely turn to the G-League or head overseas.
