An MRI revealed a sprained left MCL for Steve Novak and he's expected to miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Novak wasn't a major part of the rotation in Milwaukee, so there's not much to spin here in terms of fantasy hoops. We wish Novak the best in his recovery.

Steve Novak has been diagnosed with a sprained left knee and will be re-evaluated on Sunday.

Novak played 11 minutes vs. the Pistons on Saturday with four points and one 3-pointer, but it sounds like he could miss some time. If he does, expect Rashad Vaughn to see a few extra minutes off the bench. Novak is not a fantasy option and belongs on the wire.
Feb 28 - 12:06 AM

Steve Novak made his debut for the Bucks on Monday vs. the Lakers, missing his only shot and finishing with one foul in one minute.

Yeah, there's no fantasy value here. Novak belongs on the wire in all leagues.
Feb 23 - 12:09 AM

Steve Novak will be available to play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

His role in Milwaukee is unclear, but he will likely only see limited minutes at best. Leave him on the wire.

Bucks sign F Steve Novak.

It's a weird landing spot for Novak, and it won't come with any kind of fantasy value. In a related move, the Bucks have waived Chris Copeland.
Feb 22 - 11:32 AM

The Bucks will sign free agent forward Steve Novak.

In order to clear a roster spot, the Bucks also waived Chris Copeland on Sunday. Novak gives the Bucks some 3-point shooting off the bench, but his role will likely be very limited. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 21 - 5:30 PM

The Bucks are the favorites to sign Steve Novak when he clears waivers on Sunday.

It's a little surprising that the Bucks are the frontrunners because Novak was expected to sign with a contender. Regardless, Novak isn't going to have much fantasy value in Milwaukee, so he should be ignored in all leagues for now.
Feb 20 - 12:22 PM

Nuggets waive F Steve Novak.

He was picked up in a trade on Thursday. The Nuggets may look to pick up a new wing now. Novak could sign with a contending team as an emergency option.
Feb 19 - 5:24 PM

The Nuggets have reportedly agreed to work with Steve Novak on a buyout.

He was a throw in piece to the Randy Foye deal in order to make the numbers work, but he was never going to be a part of Denver's long-term plans. The jersey that Novak is wearing is unlikely to alter his non-existent fantasy value and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 18 - 4:46 PM

Steve Novak will be traded to the Nuggets from the Thunder.

There's a pretty decent chance he'll be waived or sent elsewhere. Novak hasn't been doing his Aaron Rodgers' belt celebration in a while and can be left on the wire in all leagues.
Feb 18 - 1:32 PM

Steve Novak (abdomen) has been cleared to play, but he will be inactive for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

It's good to see him healthy again, but Novak won't have any fantasy value with the Thunder this season. Leave him on the wire.
Wed, Mar 11, 2015 06:36:00 PM

Steve Novak had an appendectomy on Tuesday, and he will be sidelined for the next two weeks.

He's not a major part of OKC's rotations, so there aren't any major fantasy implications with this news. Novak belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Tue, Feb 24, 2015 06:40:00 PM

Steve Novak didn't score in his Thunder debut on Sunday, missing both of his shot attempts in nine minutes off the bench.

He had only one assist and one turnover to his credit, and the veteran 3-point specialist isn't worth fantasy owners' attention even while Kevin Durant (foot) is out of commission.
Sun, Feb 22, 2015 10:14:00 PM

Oklahoma City acquired Steve Novak in the Enes Kanter trade on Thursday.

OKC has 16 players on their roster, so Novak may be bought out. Even if he somehow stays, he won't be in the rotation and can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
