Emeka Okafor: Waived by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor was waived by the 76ers on Saturday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Okafor didn't make a big enough impression during training camp to secure a contract from the 76ers. He may end up with another NBA team at some point during the season. Last year, during his age 34 season, he averaged 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 block in 13.6 minutes with the Pelicans.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Waived by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor was waived by the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Okafor re-joined the league last season at age 34 after being out since the 2012-13 season. He appeared in 26 games (19 starts) and averaged 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 block in 13.6 minutes. The Pelicans signed Julius Randle in the offseason in the wake of losing DeMarcus Cousins, and the organization seems to feel that Randle can handle a significant chunk of reserve center minutes. Cheick Diallo and Jahlil Okafor are also in the fold at the position. It's possible the veteran secures a training camp deal and/or ends up making a final NBA roster, as he showed he can still provide solid defense and rebounding in backup minutes.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Will come off bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will shift back to a bench role for Wednesday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Grizzlies radio play-by-play announcer Eric Hasseltine reports.

Okafor has logged 15 minutes or less in four straight games, so he was already essentially off the fantasy radar despite previously working with the starters. His demotion to the bench certainly doesn't help things and he'll likely struggle to hit double-digit minutes. This does appear to be a matchup-based decision, however, so Okafor could be back in the starting five as soon as Friday's game against the Suns.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Grabs nine boards in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor posted six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and nine rebounds in 15 minutes during Tuesday's 107-103 loss to the Pelicans.

While Okafor drew the start, it's Chieck Diallo who's been reaping the most benefits while Nikola Mirotic (hip) eases back into play. Once Mirotic is 100 percent, both Okafor and Diallo's production should take a big hit.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Will rejoin starting five Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will rejoin the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The Pelicans opted to start Darius Miller instead of Okafor during Saturday's contest, though it appears that was just a one-game experiment. As a result, Okafor will reclaim a starting role Tuesday, but considering he's seen single-digit minutes in three of his last four games, he likely shouldn't be relied upon for those in either season-long leagues or playing DFS contests Tuesday.
