Ronnie Price's one-year deal with the Los Angels Lakers is not guaranteed.
Price's deal with the Lakers comes on the veteran minimum and is not guaranteed, according to Sam Amick of USA Today. Price will provide the Lakers with camp depth behind Jeremy Lin and Steve Nash, but the 31-year-old may have a hard time beating out rookie Jordan Clarkson for a roster spot. Even if he is able to make the Lakers' final roster, Price isn't someone who fantasy owners should be targeting. Sep 25 - 11:42 AM

The Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal with Ronnie Price.

It's for the veteran minimum and he'll be with them for training camp. The Lakers had some issues at point guard last season, but they're hoping Steve Nash will be healthier, Jeremy Lin will produce and they're also hoping rookie Jordan Clarkson can build off his strong summer league. Price won't be in the rotation to start the year.

Magic waive G Ronnie Price.

The Magic had one of the more shocking moves so far in free agency, signing Ben Gordon to a three-year deal. Price joins Doron Lamb as players who have been waived by the Magic in the past week. He might catch on with another team as a third-string point guard.
Jul 2 - 4:56 PM

Ronnie Price started for Jameer Nelson (illness) on Wednesday and hit 4-of-6 shots for eight points, five assists, two steals and six turnovers.

He had a tough matchup against Patrick Beverley tonight, but somehow won the battle. E'Twaun Moore came off the bench and had nine points and two assists in 26 minutes, but both Magic guards won't be worth owning once Nelson is healthy again.
Mar 5 - 9:51 PM

Ronnie Price will start against the Rockets on Wednesday in place of Jameer Nelson (illness).

He'll have to deal with Patrick Beverley tonight, so that should be a real treat for him. Price didn't make any of his seven shots from the field in his start on Sunday and he's shooting just 28.3 percent from the field on the season. Coach Jacque Vaughn probably won't allow him to play 24 minutes again, so there's a good chance E'Twaun Moore can see more than his 32 minutes from Sunday. The Magic are expected to start Price, Arron Afflalo, Moe Harkless, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic tonight.
Mar 5 - 5:37 PM

Ronnie Price had zero points on 0-of-7 shooting, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes during his first start of the season on Sunday, filling in for Jameer Nelson (sore calf).

Even if Nelson misses more games, tonight's dud underscores the fact that Price is not a compelling waiver wire pickup. He would also face a two-game week and competition from E'Twaun Moore (11 points in 32 minutes) and Victor Oladipo (nine points, four assists) for primary ball-handling duties.
Mar 2 - 9:11 PM

Ronnie Price played eight minutes against the Bucks on Friday with two points, one board and one assist.

He only had one shot in this game and it was a breakaway two-handed reverse dunk, so at least he gets some style points. Price's foot injury has been an issue for a while and he's unlikely to get significant minutes unless Jameer Nelson (knee) is out for a while.
Jan 31 - 10:53 PM

Ronnie Price (sprained foot) will miss his fifth consecutive game vs. the Lakers on Friday.

Orlando's backup PG doesn't sound close to a return, given how early the team ruled him out, but his continued absence shouldn't affect any fantasy lineups.
Jan 23 - 4:05 PM

Ronnie Price (sprained foot) will miss his second consecutive game vs. Boston on Sunday.

The fact that he was ruled out well in advance of the game suggests that it's at least a moderate sprain. His absence could open up extra playing time for E'Twaun Moore as the Magic try to snap their 10-game losing streak.
Jan 18 - 4:45 PM

Ronnie Price sprained his right foot in practice on Thursday and will not play against the Bobcats.

He returned to the lineup and played 12 minutes in Wednesday's triple-overtime loss. Price is basically a third-string point guard and has barely any fantasy value.
Jan 17 - 5:26 PM

Ronnie Price returned to the lineup on Wednesday with no points and two boards in 12 minutes.

He had an illness and didn't travel with the team on their road trip before returning tonight. Price should be left on the wire in all leagues unless Jameer Nelson's cramping problems keep him from action on Friday.
Jan 16 - 12:23 AM

Ronnie Price is available for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

He has been kept from the team for his illness and could be back in the lineup tonight. Price is just a backup, but coach Jacque Vaughn has used him in certain spots off the bench. He has no fantasy value.
Jan 15 - 4:11 PM

Ronnie Price (illness) will travel with the Magic for their five-game road trip.

Doctors advised him not to fly due to a sinus infection. Price has played just nine minutes combined over the last four games and is not in the rotation while the backcourt is healthy.
Jan 6 - 2:25 PM

Ronnie Price made his preseason debut for the Magic on Sunday, coming off the bench to score four points with three assists and two steals in 22 minutes.

It's nice to see the veteran PG healthy prior to the regular season, but he has no fantasy value as long as Jameer Nelson and Victor Oladipo are in uniform.
