The Pelicans waived Nate Robinson on Thursday.
Well, that didn't last long. Robinson was scoreless in the Pelicans' first two games, and Ish Smith has thoroughly outplayed him. Robinson can be dropped everywhere, and we will let you know if he gets a call from another team. Oct 29 - 3:22 PM

Nate Robinson did not take any shots in four minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

With Jrue Holiday back, Robinson moved to the background. Ish Smith has clearly passed him, which means it's time to cut bait.

Nate Robinson started at point guard for the Pelicans on Tuesday with Jrue Holiday (leg) sidelined, but played just 19 minutes, missed his only shot, and finished with zero points and three assists.

Ish Smith came off the bench and went off for 17 points and nine dimes, and may have passed Lil Nate in the process. If you own Robinson, dropping him for Smith might make sense, although Holiday isn't expected to be out for too long.

Nate Robinson will start in place of Jrue Holiday (leg) on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

Holiday will be back in uniform on Wednesday, but he will still be on a 20-minute limit. Ish Smith figures to get some minutes as well tonight, but Robinson is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of short-term help. Robinson will be joined in the starting lineup by Eric Gordon, Dante Cunningham, Anthony Davis and Kendrick Perkins.

Nate Robinson's roster spot is safe, but the Pelicans might look to add anther veteran guard.

''We're definitely going to look and see what the situation is because we definitely may have to add another guard,'' Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Saturday. ''We want to do whatever best for the team." Robinson is poised to play some big minutes early on because the Pelicans have been hit with a slew of injuries, so he could have some nice short-term value in deeper leagues.

Nate Robinson led the Pelicans' reserves with 18 points in Wednesday's OT loss, hitting 7-of-11 shots with three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

Nate added two steals but also turned the ball over four times without any assists. He was added to the roster as emergency depth with Jrue Holiday limited and Norris Cole injured, and Tyreke Evans' knee surgery makes Robinson an even more prominent part of the rotation. He's worth looking at for temporary value in deep leagues.

Nate Robinson started the second half against the Kings on Saturday, finishing with nine points, one rebound, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Pelicans brought him in for a reason and there will be some minutes available. Jrue Holiday (leg) should have a minutes cap until January, Norris Cole (ankle) could miss all of November and Tyreke Evans (knee) is banged up. Don't be surprised to see Lil' Nate get close to 20 minutes to start the year for owners in deep leagues.

Nate Robinson and Bo McCalebb should get big minutes on Saturday.

The Pelicans' list of injuries certainly isn't brief. There is a chance Nate Robinson can make an impact in deep leagues, especially if Tyreke Evans' sore knee affects him in the regular season.
Oct 17 - 5:49 PM

The Pelicans announced the signing of Nate Robinson on Friday.

With Norris Cole nursing a high-ankle sprain and Jrue Holiday on a minutes restriction, Robinson could be in the rotation right out of the gate. However, Tyreke Evans will probably handle the bulk of the point guard duties, so Robinson is only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues.
Oct 16 - 11:35 AM

The Pelicans have reportedly signed Nate Robinson to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.

The Pelicans are in desperate need of depth at the point guard position with Jrue Holiday (leg) set to begin the 2015-16 season on a hard cap of 15 minutes per game, and Norris Cole (ankle) out indefinitely. He could have some value during the early goings of the 2015-16 season, but once the team is healthy, he'll likely be a non-factor in most leagues.
Oct 15 - 5:18 PM

Nate Robinson is mulling an offer from Sichuan Blue Wales in China.

Robinson played in 34 games for the Nuggets and nine for the Clippers last season, but he saw less than 15 minutes per game at both clubs. It's not a shock that he hasn't received a lot of interest from NBA teams, but we will let you know if he decides to play in China.
Sep 5 - 9:13 AM

The Clippers could bring back Nate Robinson (knee) once he's healthy enough to play.

Los Angeles signed Lester Hudson to a 10-day deal, but Doc Rivers seems to prefer Robinson if he's healthy. "It's a strong possibility. I liked what Nate brought us. I liked his energy."
Mar 30 - 11:24 AM

Nate Robinson's knee is making progress and he is expected to be cleared to play within the week, but the Clippers have declined to sign him for the rest of the season.

The Clippers signed Lester Hudson to a 10-day contract on Sunday, so this isn't surprising. Hopefully Robinson will land on an NBA team soon, but he is well off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
Mar 29 - 1:29 PM

The Clippers are reportedly waiting to see how Nate Robinson's knee is recovering before deciding whether or not to sign him for the remainder of the season.

Robinson's second 10-day contract with the club expired on Thursday, and given that the Clippers have not yet signed him, he's not going to be available for Friday's game vs. the Sixers. Through nine games with the Clippers, Robinson put in averages of 5.1 points and 2.2 assists over 14 minutes of action. His reserve minutes will likely go to Austin Rivers, and at this point, it's safe to cut Robinson in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 9:00 AM

Nate Robinson (knee) will not play vs. the Knicks on Wednesday but he hopes to return later this week.

It's unclear when injured himself, but fortunately the bone bruise in his knee doesn't sound severe. He has scored double-digit points just once since joining the Clippers and isn't a fantasy asset while J.J. Redick and Chris Paul are healthy.
