The Jazz waived Andris Biedrins on Saturday to clear a roster spot for PF Erik Murphy.
Biedrins has been out with a shoulder injury and prior to that it was a sore ankle keeping him on the shelf. He's a spectacularly bad free throw shooter, whose lack of touch seems to have destroyed his confidence, and it's anyone's guess where he'll end up next. Apr 5 - 6:04 PM

Date:

Andris Biedrins (shoulder) will not play in Friday's game against the Pelicans.

Biedrins hasn't played since early December and is likely done for the season.
Apr 4 - 12:36 PM

Andris Biedrins (shoulder) will miss Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Biedrins has only played in six games all season, so this doesn't come as major fantasy news seeing as he wasn't playing even when he was healthy. There is no reason to own Biedrins in any leagues that don't award points for under-handed free throws, so fantasy owners can feel free to go about their day without paying much attention to this news.

Andris Biedrins (shoulder) will not play in Monday's game vs. the Pistons.

Biedrins is about as irrelevant as they come; he's played in just six games this season with his best effort coming in December with a seven rebound game. Unless you're a diehard GSW fan, you might not even know who Andris Biedrins is.
Mar 23 - 1:05 PM

Andris Biedrins (flu) will be available Friday.

Biedrins may be available, but he won't get in the game unless Ty Corbin is in a real pinch. The former Warrior has made just six appearances all year in his first season with the Jazz.
Jan 10 - 12:59 PM

Andris Biedrins will not play vs. the Thunder on Tuesday due to flu-like symptoms.

He has not played in a game since Dec. 7 and the Jazz won't miss him. Biedrins actually can't decrease his season shooting of 16.7 percent from the line and has no value in fantasy leagues.
Jan 7 - 9:19 PM

Andris Biedrins made his Jazz debut on Friday in a four-minute appearance.

Biedrins is damaged goods on the basketball floor until he proves otherwise and has no fantasy value.

Andris Biedrins will practice on Wednesday for the first time since spraining his ankle in late September.

The 2-14 Jazz can use any help they can get, but Biedrins may not even crack the rotation if he's healthy. A fading veteran on a young team bound for the draft lottery is not a recipe for success.

Jazz reserve center Andris Biedrins sprained his ankle in Monday's practice and is doubtful to play on Wednesday against the Rockets.

If you didn't know Biedrins was still in the league or with the Jazz, don't feel too bad. He'll see a very minimal role, even when healthy. This could mean a few more minutes for starter Enes Kanter, who has been a popular mid-round fantasy pick this year.

Andris Biedrins fouled out in 13 minutes of action on Sunday.

He had one rebound, one block and zero points. Some lines speak for themselves. Biedrins is the poster child for lousy free throw shooting (24.4 percent in the past four seasons) and he doesn't have fantasy appeal at this stage of his career.

Andris Biedrins will not play for the Latvian national team this summer, preferring to get in shape for the 2013-14 season with the Jazz.

"[The] trade to the Jazz in the last year of my current contract has created new chances," wrote Biedrins. "That's why I've decided to return to the USA as early as the first half of August, so I can prepare for the season. Also, in this situation I didn't want to risk injuries." It's a great sign for the Jazz, who will be happy if he gives them a handful of points, rebounds and blocks in a backup role behind Enes Kanter.

Jazz acquired C Andris Biedrins, SF Richard Jefferson and G/F Brandon Rush via a trade with the Warriors.

The Warriors needed to clear out cap space to sign Andre Iguodala, so they dumped this trio on the Jazz. In return, they'll receive a bunch of draft picks, including a 2014 first-rounder, a 2017 first-rounder and Kevin Murphy. Biedrins won't play much in Utah behind Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors, but his expiring $9 million contract is an asset. So is the $11.046 million from Jefferson and the $4 million from Rush that will come off the books in July of 2014.
Fri, Jul 5, 2013 04:25:00 PM

To the surprise of nobody, Andris Biedrins will exercise his $9 million player option and remain with the Warriors for the 2013/14 season.

Biedrins couldn't get a third of that on the open market right now as a free agent, so this was the definition of a no-brainer decision. Biedrins' agent confirmed that he'll pick up the option, and the Warriors are now stuck with him for another season. Still just 27 years old, next season will be the final year of an awful six-year, $54 million deal.

Andris Biedrins (back) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Blazers.

Biedrins didn't play against the Spurs on Monday, but you may have not even noticed unless you were watching the game. The Warriors should have amnestied Biedrins long ago, but we all remember the Charlie Bell saga all too well. Carl Landry could see big minutes with Andrew Bogut (ankle) questionable.
Wed, Apr 17, 2013 08:51:00 AM

Andris Biedrins (lower back tightness) is not playing against the Spurs on Monday.

He hasn't been very good at all this year, playing just 9.3 minutes per game for 0.5 points. Biedrins is also shooting 30.8 percent from the free throw line this season.
