Kris Humphries and the Wizards have agreed to a three-year, $13 million contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The third year will be a team option and it's a sign-and-trade with the Celtics, who get a traded-player exception and a protected second-round pick for their efforts. Washington failed to retain Trevor Booker, who signed with the Jazz, but they quickly moved to lock up Humphries as depth behind Marcin Gortat and Nene. Humphries showed last season that he can still be very effective, but he's unlikely to have fantasy value unless injuries strike the Wizards' frontcourt. Jul 15 - 2:28 PM

Unrestricted free agent Kris Humphries has drawn interest from the Celtics, Clippers, Heat, Hornets, Mavericks, Timberwolves and Wizards.

Humphries is 29 years old and he's coming off a solid year in Boston -- on a per-36-minute basis, he averaged 15.1 points on 50.1 percent shooting, 10.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and a career-best 1.6 blocks. He projects as a reserve big man on all of the teams linked to him thus far, however, so he's likely to remain a marginal fantasy option in 2014-15.

Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

He's had some tendinitis in his knee and played just 11 minutes in the final six games of the season because of it. With Humphries out, Kelly Olynyk will look to build off his career night and should be in all fantasy lineups. Brandon Bass will also get some extra chances.

Kris Humphries (knee) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

He has tendinitis in his knee and it was a bit of a surprise to even see him on the court for 11 minutes on Friday. Humphries can be cut in all fantasy leagues while Kelly Olynyk and Brandon Bass will get some extra playing time in a very thin frontcourt.
Apr 14 - 5:53 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) will not play vs. Philadelphia on Saturday.

He's dealing with tendinitis and it seems the Celtics are content to let him rest down the stretch, rather than asking their veteran soon-to-be free agent to risk aggravating the problem in a meaningless game. Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk will get extra playing time with Humphries and Jared Sullinger (ankle) out of commission.
Apr 14 - 11:21 AM

Kris Humphries (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday.

He played 11 minutes in his return to the lineup on Friday and the team will keep him out tonight. This is basically planned rest and Humphries should make it back for Monday. Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk should get plenty of run.
Apr 12 - 7:26 PM

Kris Humphries played 11 minutes in his return to the lineup on Friday with four points and seven rebounds.

He missed the last two games with knee tendinitis and obviously the team limited him for whatever reasons. Humphries is unlikely to play against the Cavs on Saturday and he's likely going to be a game-time call. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues until further notice.
Apr 11 - 11:41 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) will return to the lineup against the Bobcats on Friday.

He went through pre-game warmups to see how the tendinitis in his knee felt, and it sounds like he'll be ready to go. Humphries will likely be in a timeshare with Kelly Olynyk, so the two kind of cancel each other out as fantasy plays. Jared Sullinger should still be effective tonight.
Apr 11 - 6:04 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) will go through a pre-game workout before Friday's contest vs. the Bobcats before deciding on his status.

In other words, he's a game-time decision tonight. If he does play, he will likely sit out on Saturday in the second half of a back-to-back. Humphries has missed the last two games with his sore knee and he could still be limited. His return wouldn't hurt Jared Sullinger much, but it may affect Kelly Olynyk's production.
Apr 11 - 3:28 PM

Kris Humphries' sore knee will keep him out of Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

He missed Saturday's game as well, will undergo an MRI, and you have to wonder if his season is over. Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk will soak up his minutes in the meantime.
Apr 8 - 11:58 AM

Kris Humphries sat out Monday's practice due to ongoing knee tendinitis.

The veteran doesn't have a clear return date, leaving him iffy for Wednesday's game vs. Atlanta. Jared Sullinger moved into the starting lineup in his absence, with Brandon Bass starting at PF, and that arrangement may continue if Humphries can't play against the Hawks and perimeter-oriented Pero Antic.
Apr 7 - 11:51 AM

Kris Humphries (knee tendinitis) will not play against the Pistons on Saturday night.

He lasted just 15 minutes on Friday night, scoring four points with three boards, one assist and one block. Humphries could be looking at a prolonged absence considering it's so late in the year, so he's not worth owning in most leagues. Jared Sullinger will likely move into the starting lineup and gets a bit of a boost, but Kelly Olynyk also should see an uptick.
Apr 4 - 10:52 PM

Kris Humphries started again on Wednesday but hit just 1-of-6 shots for four points, four rebounds and a block in 17 minutes.

Jared Sullinger went bananas off the bench with 26 points, eight rebounds and four 3-pointers tonight, limiting Humps in the process. Humphries had a double-double back on March 16, but hasn't done much since that one. And if Sullinger is going to stay hot, things may not get better for Humphries anytime soon.
Mar 26 - 10:29 PM

Kris Humphries had a mediocre game against his former team on Friday during a 114-98 loss to the Nets, scoring 12 points with eight boards, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.

The Celtics are not getting much out of their frontcourt and Humphries was able to get some production due to five offensive boards. The perimeter scorers do most of the damage as far as scoring goes, but Hump seems like he's locked in as a near double-double guy with some blocks. He's worth owning in standard leagues for now.
Mar 22 - 2:44 AM

Kris Humphries played just 15 minutes in another start on Wednesday, hitting 2-of-4 shots for seven points, two rebounds and zero blocks.

Here we go again. Humps had just five points on Monday, but also had 14 rebounds in that one, and he had scored in double digits in five straight games before Monday. He isn't hurt, but Brad Stevens seems to have trouble making up his mind. Jared Sullinger played 31 minutes and had 14 points, four rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers, and Kelly Olynyk had 10 points, five boards and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes. Stevens likes his three-headed center option and you never know which guy is going to be the one to play from night to night.
