Roy Hibbert was listed as a DNP-CD for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
Hibbert was just acquired from the Bucks at the NBA trade deadline but the 7-foot-2 big has yet to see any play time in two games in the Mile High City. The team recently added Mason Plumlee from Portland, and he has been playing regularly off the bench, so Hibbert likely needs an injury to Plumlee before he sees any meaningful minutes with his new organization. He is not a recommended fantasy option at this point. Sun, Feb 26, 2017 08:39:00 PM

Roy Hibbert will be available to make his Denver debut Sunday vs. Memphis.

Hibbert will likely be logging limited minutes off the bench with the Nuggets, so he has no business being owned in most leagues.

Roy Hibbert had issues with his flight and will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.

Hibbert isn't expected to be in the rotation most nights unless the Nuggets are playing against a team like the Pelicans. Leave him on the wire.

Roy Hibbert is questionable for Friday against the Nets.

Mason Plumlee played all of his minutes at center in Thursday, so Hibbert is clearly the No. 3 center on the depth chart. Outside of games against oversized fives, Hibbert is not likely to be in the rotation.

Roy Hibbert will not play for the Nuggets on Thursday.

He still hasn't joined his new team and when he does, he's going to see pretty limited minutes behind Nikola Jokic and company.

The Nuggets are finalizing a deal for Roy Hibbert for a protected second-round pick.

The Nuggets are under the salary cap and will pick up Hibbert's expiring deal. If he isn't bought out, Hibbert isn't a lock to be in the rotation behind Nikola Jokic and Mason Plumlee.

Roy Hibbert is inactive for Friday against the Lakers.

No revenge game here. Hibbert was acquired more for his contract and likely won't play while the Bucks are healthy.

Roy Hibbert will not play on Wednesday against the Heat.

The Bucks basically acquired Hibbert's contract more than his on-court contributions. Hibbert can stay on the wire while John Henson should get another start tonight.

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said he felt bad for how Roy Hibbert's body never got healthy.

The coach added Hibbert may need a couple months to get his knee right. The Hornets have kept Hibbert limited since he played 32 minutes in the opener and said it was a mistake to do so. In fact, Hibbert has not played more than 22 minutes in any game since. We'll see how the Bucks play it, but there's really no need to add Hibbert in most leagues.

Neither Roy Hibbert nor Spencer Hawes will make their Bucks debut Friday night vs. the Nuggets.

Milwaukee's next game is Saturday in Phoenix. Both Hawes and Hibbert are expected to be with the team and available to play on Saturday. The trade was more about clearing Miles Plumlee's contract off the books, so Hibbert is not expected to have a significant role in Milwaukee behind John Henson and Greg Monroe.

The Bucks reached an agreement in principle to trade Miles Plumlee to the Hornets for Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst.

Windhorst adds that the Bucks intend to keep both Hibbert and Hawes. Hibbert has an expiring contract, so that's likely the main reason why he's a Buck right now. He is coming off a DNP-CD on Wednesday and he will have to earn his minutes, assuming he isn't waived. His legs just don't allow him to play big minutes anymore, so there's no need to add him in most leagues.

The Bucks are in talks with the Hornets to trade Miles Plumlee for Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes, according to Brian Windhorst of

Hibbert was a DNP-CD on Wednesday and clearly just hasn't lived up to the billing. Before yesterday, they had been starting him out of necessity up due to Cody Zeller (quad) missing time. The Bucks are also stumped on who to start at center, so likely both teams just hoping a change of scenery could help. Hibbert's legs keep him to limited minutes, so he is very unlikely to have value in most places.

Roy Hibbert went from a starter to a DNP-CD vs. the Warriors on Wednesday.

Cody Zeller (quad) was out again tonight, but the matchup led coach Steve Clifford to roll with a center combo of Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky. Hibbert should return to the rotation, and possibly the starting lineup, vs. the Jazz on Saturday.
Thu, Feb 2, 2017 01:25:00 AM

Roy Hibbert will come off the bench vs. Golden State on Wednesday.

Cody Zeller (quad) is still out, but Hibbert is getting benched for matchup purposes, with Spencer Hawes moving into the starting unit.
Wed, Feb 1, 2017 09:32:00 PM

Roy Hibbert made another start against the Kings on Saturday, scoring six points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 12 minutes.

The Hornets went smaller more often and Hibbert just doesn't have the defensive presence he used to. With Cody Zeller (quad) likely back next week, Hibbert will move back to the bench. Spencer Hawes outplayed him, so we'll see if that changes the depth chart. Leave Hibbert on the wire, of course.
