Updating a previous report, the Pistons were unable to waive Beno Udrih.

Awkward. The deadline was Sunday, so the Pistons waited a few hours too long. Udrih is currently on the shelf with a knee injury that he suffered on Sunday, so he likely won't play in the final two games of the season.

The Pistons have waived Beno Udrih.

Udrih was expected to miss the final two games of the season anyways, as he suffered a right knee injury on Sunday. He was diagnosed with a knee sprain, but barring a surprise, he should be ready for the 2017-18 season.

Beno Udrih (right knee) is doubtful to play in Detroit's final two games this season, according to coach Stan Van Gundy.

SVG said he's "not optimistic" that Udrih will return after spraining his knee on Sunday. X-rays are coming but even if they're negative it sounds like Detroit will play it safe with their veteran guard. Van Gundy also said that Reggie Jackson (knee) is done for the season, regardless of Udrih's status, which leaves Ish Smith with a very full plate.
Apr 9 - 8:37 PM

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.

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.
Feb 22 - 1:20 PM

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.
