Lou Amundson will draw another start on Wednesday against the 76ers.
He just signed another 10-day contract and coach Derek Fisher really seems to like the energy that he brings, but his game simply doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Amundson is still only an option in ridiculously deep leagues. Jan 21 - 10:28 AM

Louis Amundson has signed a second 10-day deal with the Knicks.

While Amundson drew the start on Monday, he's only averaged 5.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 2.0 blocks in his two games with the Knicks. Those numbers can help owners in deeper fantasy leagues, but owners in standard leagues can feel free to leave Amundson on the wire.

The Knicks will reportedly sign Lou Amundson to another 10-day contract.

He drew a start on Monday against the Pelicans, finishing with four points, three boards, one assist and two blocks in 24 minutes. However, even if he does earn a role in New York, Amundson's game doesn't translate well to fantasy. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 19 - 9:34 PM

Lou Amundson played 24 minutes in the starting lineup against the Pelicans on Monday with four points, three rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He played down the stretch today and the Knicks gave Amundson an extended look with his 10-day deal running out. He's probably played well enough to stay on the team for another 10-day contract, but is only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Lou Amundson will start against the Pelicans on Monday.

Interesting. Coach Derek Fisher is really getting creative here and the team just wants to look at him to see if he is worth keeping beyond his 10-day deal. He's not a fantasy option tonight.
Jan 19 - 4:06 PM

Lou Amundson played 17 minutes in his Knicks debut on Thursday with six points, six boards, one assist and two blocks.

He was on the bench for his first game on Saturday and is on a 10-day deal right now. Amundson is 32 and the Knicks likely just rostered him because Amare Stoudemire is not healthy, so he probably won't be on the roster beyond another 10-day deal. He's only an option in very deep leagues.
Jan 15 - 8:03 PM

The Knicks have signed Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas to 10-day contracts on Saturday.

Both players were recently waived by the Knicks but it looks like they will now have another chance to impress. However, both players will likely serve as emergency depth for the Knicks and they are still well off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 9:42 AM

Lou Amundson cleared waivers and is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Knicks on Saturday.

Lance Thomas is also expected to sign with the Knicks, but both players don't figure to see large enough roles to matter in most fantasy leagues. You can confidently leave them on the wire.

Knicks waive F/C Lou Amundson, F Lance Thomas and C Alex Kirk.

Amundson was never going to make the team after being thrown in on the Monday trade with the Cavs. He will likely be picked up on a 10-day deal at some point.
Jan 7 - 2:21 PM

Louis Amundson has made the Cavaliers' regular-season roster.

Amundson will serve as emergency depth for the Cavs this season, but he doesn't belong on any fantasy teams, regardless of format.

The Cavs will sign Lou Amundson for training camp.

The Cavs do need some depth up front and Amundson will have a chance to make the team. He hasn't played in more than 10 minutes per game in each of his last two seasons, so he won't be a big factor.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 10:46:00 AM

Free agent Louis Amundson worked out for the Cavs last week.

He could get a training camp invite as the Cavs attempt to add some depth to their front court. Amundson played in 19 games last season and won't be in the rotation to start the year.

The Bulls waived Lou Amundson on Tuesday.

Amundson would have earned $1.3 million but his salary was fully unguaranteed, and he had minimal value in a Bulls frontcourt which already includes Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol and Taj Gibson.
Tue, Jul 15, 2014 06:12:00 PM

The Bulls signed F/C Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season on Thursday.

He's a big body that will be used for defensive purposes in the playoffs, but it's hard to see him doing much in the regular season, or playoffs.

The Bulls are rumored to be interested in signing Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season.

They're getting ready to make a run in the playoffs and Amundson would give them a big body to foul the likes of Roy Hibbert, Mason Plumlee and Udonis Haslem.
