Beno Udrih played 13 minutes in Monday's 109-95 loss at New York, finishing with six points, three rebounds and three assists with a steal.
Udrih was seeing added run with Reggie Jackson (knee) resting his knee, and the same scenario will play out with R-Jax on the shelf for the second end of a back-to-back situation. While Ish Smith is the biggest beneficiary since he is in a starting capacity, Udrih has some value as a low-cost filler option in DFS. Mar 27 - 10:21 PM

Beno Udrih was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Udrih was dealing with an ankle injury the last time we wrote about him, in late-February, but we're assuming he's healthy by now. Avoid him.

Beno Udrih (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

This is the first blurb we've had on Udrih since Detroit claimed him off waivers back in October, which tells you just about all you need to know of his non-existent fantasy value.

Detroit has claimed Beno Udrih off waivers, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

The Pistons have been looking for a veteran point guard ever since they found out that Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) would miss the first 4-6 weeks of the season. Udrih likely won't have much fantasy value, as he'll serve as Ish Smith's backup until Jackson returns. As long as Smith plays well, he should still get a ton of minutes.

Updating a previous item, Heat waive PG Beno Udrih.

Udrih got a $1.5M gift from the organization to do absolutely nothing. While he could resurface elsewhere as an insurance policy at point guard, Udrih is going to have a tough time generating an NBA market moving forward.

The Heat are expected to waive veteran PG Beno Udrih, a source told Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

This means Rodney McGruder's roster spot is locked up. Udrih may resurface as a third-string PG elsewhere (Sixers, anyone?), but it's clear his best days are behind him.

Beno Udrih (back) is on the Heat's roster bubble, according to head coach Erik Spoelstra.

The Heat will have to decide between Udrih and Briante Weber, and Spoelstra isn't looking forward to making the decision. "Well, they’re two totally different players," Spoelstra said of Udrih and Weber. "Bri is dynamic defensively. There’s so many unpredictable things that are disruptive, it’s uncanny. Offensively, he brings a lot of energy, and he’s developing the rest of his game." While the 34-year-old could still end up on Miami's final roster, he won't have any fantasy value in standard leagues this season.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra expects Beno Udrih (back) to play over the weekend.

Udrih has been dealing with a sore back, but will likely make his preseason debut over the weekend according to Spo. Even when healthy, the 34-year-old will serve as Miami's third-string point guard, so he can be left undrafted in all fantasy leagues.

Beno Udrih (back) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Udrih has yet to make his preseason debut, but chances are that will change tonight. He's not worth drafting anywhere as the third-string point guard in Miami.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 06:34:00 PM

Beno Udrih (back) could make his preseason debut Tuesday vs. Nets and is listed as questionable.

Udrih has been dealing with back issues for over a week, but he should be good to go on Tuesday. He's competing with Briante Weber for the third-string PG role, so he has no fantasy appeal.
Mon, Oct 10, 2016 12:29:00 PM

Beno Udrih (back) was limited in practice on Friday.

He's been limited for most of the month and it will likely keep him out on Saturday. Tyler Johnson could get a couple extra minutes.
Fri, Oct 7, 2016 03:13:00 PM

Beno Udrih (back) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

Udrih is dealing with back spasms that will likely keep him out of Saturday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, but he still has roughly three weeks to rest up for the regular season. Still, as the third-string point guard in Miami, Udrih is not worth the attention of fantasy owners anywhere.
Thu, Oct 6, 2016 04:48:00 PM

Beno Udrih is questionable for Saturday's game due to lower back spasms.

Back spasms can be a pernicious injury and the Heat will play it safe here. If there's any doubt about his health, backup PG duties should fall to Briante Weber and Dion Waiters.
Wed, Oct 5, 2016 10:31:00 PM

Beno Udrih (back) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

There's absolutely no reason for Udrih to get out there for a meaningless game and risk a setback, so he'll more than likely be watching from the sidelines tonight. As the third-string point guard in Miami, Udrih isn't worth drafting in any setting.
Tue, Oct 4, 2016 06:04:00 PM

Beno Udrih (back) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's preseason game.

Udrih will serve as the Heat's third-string point guard to start the season and won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues even when healthy.
