Damien Wilkins: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins was not with the team for Friday's 124-122 loss to Delaware due to oral surgery.

Wilkins' absence was a major loss for Greensboro as he is averaging 24.4 points and 6.1 rebounds per game this season. It's unknown when the 38-year-old veteran will return to the team, as Greensboro plays Sunday at Long Island.

Damien Wilkins: Continues to impress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins totaled 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals during Friday's 105-99 loss to Windy City.

It's pretty incredible that Wilkins, at age 38, can not only contribute significantly in scoring but also produce high marks in many other statistical categories, like Friday's performance indicates. The former Georgia guard is averaging an impressive 25.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists during his stint with the Swarm this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins totaled 41 points (14-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 10-11 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one block during Sunday's narrow 125-122 loss to visiting Long Island.

Wilkins broke his previous season high Sunday which came during the game prior when he amassed 37 points. At 38 years old, the 6-6 guard keeps chugging along, as he is having a tremendous season thus far. The tenth-year player is averaging 29.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists through six games played for the Swarm this season.

Damien Wilkins: New season high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins returned from a one game absence and manged 37 points (13-23 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal during Friday's 123-118 home loss to Grand Rapids.

Wilkins went off for a new season high Friday, reaching the 30-part mark for the first time this year. At 38 years old, the ten-year veteran has shown no signs of slowing down in the G-League yet. Through five games, Wilkins has solidified himself as the dominant player for the Swarm's offense, as he is averaging an impressive 26.8 rebounds, 6.0 rebounds and 5.2 assists this season.

Damien Wilkins: Out Wednesday for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins did not play during Wednesday's 98-88 win over Lakeland due to personal reasons.

One of the oldest players in the G-League, Wilkins is averaging a monster 24.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists in four games with the Swarm. It's not certain when the Georgia product is expected to return though, as the Swarm's next game is Friday.

Damien Wilkins: Finishes great first week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins registered 28 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3pt, 12-12 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 34 minutes during Friday's loss to Lakeland.

Reaching an agreement with the Swarm earlier in the week, the 38-year-old reached the 20-point mark for the second straight game. In addition, Wilkins is perfect from the line thus far, going 18-18. The former Georgia Bulldog is averaging a fine stat line through his first two games in the G-League with 24.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists.

Damien Wilkins: Signs with G League club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins agreed to a contract Thursday with the G League's Greensboro Swarm, Scott Agness of reports.

After five years away from the NBA, Wilkins was able to earn his way back to the game's highest level upon winning a roster spot with the Pacers out of training camp. Though he made 19 appearances with Indiana, Wilkins did little to justify sticking around, as he shot 33.3 percent from the floor in those contests before being cut loose in January. He'll look to reestablish value in the G League during the second half of the season with the hopes of netting a 10-day contract from an NBA team over the final few months.

Damien Wilkins: Waived by Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins was waived by the Pacers on Sunday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Wilkins saw an expanded role over the last few games with the Pacers dealing with injuries, including a start on Saturday where he scored 11 points over 22 minutes. However, the Pacers are now set to wave the 37-year-old veteran, as his contract was going to guarantee today and Indiana desired some roster flexibility moving forward. Wilkins could head to G-League if he fails to receive interest elsewhere. No mater where he lands, he likely won't be a fantasy asset.

Pacers' Damien Wilkins: Will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins will draw the start in place of Bojan Bogdanovic (ankle) for Saturday's contest against the Bulls, Pat Boylan of Fox Sports Indiana reports.

Wilkins saw extended run during Dec. 31's game against Minnesota, playing 27 minutes and posting five points, three rebounds and two assists. He could be in for a similar role and workload during Saturday's contest.

Pacers' Damien Wilkins: Sees limited minutes in Tuesday's preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins went for three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one block in five minutes during Tuesday's 108-89 win over Haifa Maccabi.

Wilkins hit double figures in scoring in two of the three preseason games prior to Tuesday, and he was also averaging 24.0 minutes per night. At 37 years old, Wilkins is not on the fantasy radar outside of the deepest leagues, but the injury to fellow small forward Glenn Robinson III (ankle) opens up minutes at the club's thinnest position. In other words, don't be that surprised if Wilkins is the primary backup to Bojan Bogdanovic until Robinson returns.

Pacers' Damien Wilkins: Agrees to deal with Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins and the Pacers have agreed to a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.

Wilkins spent this past season with the D-League's Greensboro Swarm, but at 37 years old, it'll be tough for the veteran to crack Indiana's rotation. He hasn't seen any minutes at the NBA level since 2012-2013 when he averaged 6.4 points per game with the 76ers.

Hornets' Damien Wilkins: Waived by Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkins was waived by the Hornets Friday.

Wilkins was seeing fairly solid minutes in the team's preseason games, but there ultimately wasn't a spot on Charlotte's roster for the veteran. At 35 years old, Wilkins may have already seen his final days as a player in the NBA.
