Carl Landry (wrist) was doing on-court work on Friday.
He is targeting a January return and would probably get minutes. The 76ers have just Richaun Holmes and Christian Wood for backup bigs, so Landry's competition isn't much. He's not worth stashing in almost any league yet. Nov 20 - 2:14 PM

Carl Landry (wrist) may remain sidelined until January, according to 76ers beat reporter Tom Moore.

With the current direction of the 76ers franchise, it's likely that Landry will fill the role of veteran locker room presence rather than steady minutes getter, so there's no reason to stash him away in any league.

Updating a previous item, Carl Landry (wrist) is in New York to get examined.

Landry is expected to be out until around Christmas as a result of his offseason wrist surgery, and perhaps today's visit will allow Philadelphia to make a decision one way or the other in regards to Landry's future with the team.

Carl Landry (wrist surgery) is expected to be out for at least another two months.

On September 30, Brett Brown said he expected Landry to be out for another 5-6 weeks. Now, as we near Halloween and the end of October, Landry is expected to be out for at least another two months. Regardless of when the veteran returns, it's hard to any way he'll be a part of Philadelphia's plan.

76ers head coach Brett Brown said he expects Carl Landry (wrist) to return in 5-6 weeks.

Brown added that he looks forward to the veteran providing some NBA wisdom to the team, but it would be surprising if Landry had more than a limited role on the rebuilding 76ers. Landry can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Sep 30 - 12:05 PM

Carl Landry (wrist surgery) has been attending preseason workouts with the 76ers.

Landry will likely miss the beginning of the season while recovering from surgery and he's not expected to remain on Philly's roster for long, but he's been showing a "positive attitude" this offseason. A veteran mentor could be a nice addition to the Sixers' roster, but no matter where Landry is playing he's not a viable fantasy option.
Sep 25 - 10:12 AM

Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated said that it's highly unlikely that Carl Landry will stick around with the 76ers.

The 76ers could pursue a trade, a buyout or simply waive the 31-year-old veteran, and that would likely happen before training camp. Landry is currently recovering from wrist surgery and it's possible that he isn't ready to start the season, but it's also clear that Landry isn't in Philly's long-term plans. In case it isn't obvious, Landry isn't on the standard league radar.
Aug 1 - 11:12 AM

Carl Landry was traded to the 76ers.

He is likely going to miss the start of the year due to wrist surgery back in June. Landry is no lock to remain on the roster, especially with the team so heavily invested in their frontcourt. Don't let this news affect your projections on Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel. The Kings also opened up more than $20 million in cap space with this move.

Carl Landry will miss 4-5 months after having right wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament on Tuesday.

Landry missed five games in January due to soreness in his wrist, but the extent of the injury wasn't revealed until he had a postseason MRI. He's struggled to stay healthy since inking a hefty contract with the Kings, who still owe him a guaranteed $13 million over the next two seasons. His status for training camp is uncertain, meaning Jason Thompson (and possibly Derrick Williams) may have less competition during the season's early stages.
Jun 2 - 7:15 PM

Carl Landry will start against the Lakers on Monday night.

His minutes should still be around 20 and Derrick Williams is a much better play tonight. Give Landry a look if you need a big man.
Apr 13 - 10:14 PM

Carl Landy and Jason Thompson will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

The Kings will bring Derrick Williams and Reggie Evans off the bench. Landry doesn't play big minutes in most cases, so he's still not a great fantasy option. Williams offers the most upside and is worth a look in standard leagues.
Apr 8 - 8:07 PM

Carl Landry served his one-game suspension on Tuesday and he'll return to action for Wednesday's road game in Utah.

Landry left the bench after a scuffle during Sunday's game, leading to a mandatory suspension from the league office. He may earn a few extra minutes on Wednesday with DeMarcus Cousins (foot) expected to sit out, but Landry doesn't have enough upside to bother with in the majority of leagues.
Apr 8 - 12:37 AM

Carl Landry has been suspended one game for leaving the bench during an altercation on Sunday, meaning he will not play vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

The NBA is pretty clear on the rule and Landry was in the paint, so the suspension was definitely coming. The Kings do have a home game on Tuesday, so they should have DeMarcus Cousins. Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams may see a little extra run, but there is really no fantasy impact here. Thompson would likely start.
Apr 6 - 4:38 PM

Carl Landry was assessed technical fouls for leaving the bench and running onto the court after a minor altercation on Sunday.

Fortunately he left the bench after a timeout was called, which may save him from a mandatory suspension from the league. Landry started at PF again but posted only six points, two rebounds and one assist, and he remains a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Apr 5 - 11:43 PM

Carl Landry will start against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He'll start next to Omri Casspi and DeMarcus Cousins tonight. Landry will likely get around 20 minutes tonight and is worth a look in deep leagues. Derrick Williams has the higher upside.
