Heat sign G/F Rodney Carney to a non-guaranteed contract.

Carney was signed for the 20th and final roster spot in training camp, but he is the definition of a long shot to make the team. Carney spent time playing in China last season.

Rodney Carney was not signed to another 10-day contract by the Grizzlies.

Thus, he's a free agent again.

Free agent forward Rodney Carney was signed to a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies on Monday.

It was reported that he was signed on Thursday, but the transaction didn't become official until today due to the All-Star break. He will come off the bench and is unlikely to hold much fantasy value, if any.

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed free agent forward Rodney Carney to a 10 day contract.

He is on the team simply for extra depth while Rudy Gay is out. Carney's fantasy impact and value will be nil.

The Grizzlies are considering signing free agents Rodney Carney, Devin Brown or Othyus Jeffers to a 10-day contract, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The Grizz need a healthy swingman to cover themselves while Rudy Gay is out, but no free agent is going to get any real burn. They'll be fine with a three-man rotation of Sam Young, Tony Allen and O.J. Mayo.

The Warriors have released swingman Rodney Carney.

Golden State sheds Carney's contract prior to its becoming fully guaranteed, and he won't be the final casualty. Teammate Acie Law, who is battling a wrist injury, is also in danger of being waived.

Rodney Carney (foot) returned to action on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, no assists, and one steal in 18 minutes.

He was on the floor during crunch time and hit some key shots, but unfortunately his fantasy prospects are greatly limited with or without Stephen Curry (ankle) in the lineup. If he plays this well a few more times, he could be worth a look in deeper leagues.

Rodney Carney (foot) will try to play on Saturday against the Blazers.

He will not likely have a big impact even if he does play, and by the time he gets healthy Stephen Curry will likely be back, eliminating any chance for fantasy value.

Rodney Carney, who has missed the past four games because of a left foot sprain, participated in parts of practice on Sunday.

Carney remains day-to-day and shouldn't be looked to for fantasy value, even though he might get extra playing time while Stephen Curry is out.
Sun, Dec 12, 2010 07:52:00 PM

Warriors swingman Rodney Carney didn't practice on Friday due to a left foot sprain.

Carney has scored double-figures just twice this season and hasn't played 20+ minutes in any game. But for the sake of Golden State's depth chart, let's hope this isn't too serious.
Fri, Dec 3, 2010 04:23:00 PM

Rodney Carney scored 16 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 7-of-9 shots from the field (including two threes) with no rebounds, no assists, and a steal in 19 minutes.

This line has fluke written all over it, and once David Lee (elbow) and Brandan Wright (back) return he'll have even less chance to make his mark. He belongs on waivers unless you're in a 30-team league.

Rodney Carney started in place of Stephen Curry (ankle) Wednesday, but had just seven points in 19 minutes.

Monta Ellis, Dorell Wright and Reggie Williams stole his thunder tonight.

Rodney Carney ran with the first team at shooting guard in practice Tuesday.

With Steph Curry (ankle) out, the Warriors have apparently decided to kick Monta Ellis to point guard. Jeremy Lin is a backup at best and Reggie Williams is too far out of position in that role. So enter Carney, a highly athletic swingman that has 3-point range. We wouldn't add him Carney with Curry expected back on Sunday at the latest, but if you're desperate for short-term help Carney is set for some real minutes tonight.
Wed, Nov 3, 2010 09:24:00 AM

Rodney Carney made his Warriors debut on Saturday against the Blazers, scoring nine points on 3-of-5 shooting (including a three) with one rebound and no assists in 22 minutes.

He had missed much of the preseason with a hip injury, but that looks to be behind him. He probably wouldn't have gotten as much run had Reggie Williams not been out due to a groin injury, and he isn't worth consideration on draft day.
