Joey Dorsey officially signed with Galatasaray of Turkey.

Dorsey is 31 years old and had a very limited role with the Rockets last season, so we might not see him in the NBA again.

Joey Dorsey has been officially waived by the Nuggets.

Dorsey will be playing professional basketball in Turkey next season, unless another team claims him off waivers (which is an unlikely scenario), and this may be the end of his NBA career. The 31-year-old owns career averages of 2.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.

Joey Dorsey has signed a deal with Galatasaray of Turkey.

Though it's unclear if he has an NBA out-clause, Dorsey's deal with Galatasaray is reportedly worth about $650 thousand. This signing may signal the end of the 31-year-old's NBA days, but he doesn't have any fantasy value even if he's able to work out a return at some point.

Joey Dorsey was traded to the Nuggets as part of the Ty Lawson deal.

Dorsey is joining a very crowded frontcourt in Denver, so he'll have his fair share of DNP-CD's as a member of the Nuggets. There's no fantasy value to be had here.

Joey Dorsey will start against the Hornets on Monday.

Dwight is resting on the second half of a back-to-back set. Dorsey will likely play minutes close to 30, but he isn't very good on offense and is one of the worst foul shooters in the NBA. Terrence Jones and Josh Smith also benefit. Clint Capela should get some playing time, too.

Joey Dorsey started at center on Wednesday with Dwight Howard and Donatas Motiejunas out with injuries, and had seven points, 11 boards and a steal in 32 minutes.

Howard is expected to play on Thursday, so Dorsey's run should be a short one. Just keep an eye on him.

Joey Dorsey will start at center on Wednesday with Dwight Howard resting his knee during Houston's back-to-back set.

Dorsey is a non-factor in standard leagues even when starting. He's averaging 3.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 fouls in just 15.2 minutes during his 15 starts this season, and was even the victim of a Hack-a-Dorsey strategy on Sunday.

Joey Dorsey started the second half for Terrence Jones (rib) on Thursday against the Nuggets, finishing with three points, eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.

Even though Jones is going to miss time, Dorsey is not really capable of putting up big lines. In his previous starts this season, Dorsey averaged 3.3 points, 4.1 boards, 0.3 blocks and 0.6 steals. If that sounds appealing to you, give him a look.

Joey Dorsey made a surprise start on Tuesday but finished with only two points, four rebounds and one block in seven minutes vs. the Magic.

He was sent back to the bench after halftime and his fleeting moment in the sun doesn't have lasting implications. Even with Dwight Howard (knee) still out at least another week, Dorsey is persona non grata in fantasy leagues.

Joey Dorsey will start at center vs. the Magic on Tuesday.

He'll give Orlando a more physical presence to battle Nikola Vucevic, but isn't a fantasy option outside of the very deepest leagues. Donatas Motiejunas will start alongside Dorsey with Terrence Jones coming off the bench, but Jones should still log heavy enough minutes for reliable value.

Joey Dorsey (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game against the Raptors.

Dorsey has been extremely quiet since moving into the starting lineup in place of Dwight Howard, so playing at less than 100 percent certainly isn't going to make him very appealing. Leave Dorsey on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Sat, Feb 21, 2015 12:56:00 PM

Joey Dorsey was invisible in another start for Dwight Howard (knee) on Sunday, scoring two points with three rebounds and no other stats to his credit in 13 minutes.

Houston has enough frontcourt depth to shun Dorsey most nights, and he's basically a token starter. Dorsey's play is poor enough to make the Rockets regret waiving Tarik Black earlier this season, and fantasy owners shouldn't go anywhere near him.
Sun, Feb 8, 2015 10:20:00 PM

Joey Dorsey made a rare start on Sunday with Dwight Howard (ankle) unavailable, notching four points with seven boards, one steal, one block and four personal fouls in 25 minutes.

Tonight's line is a good indication of Dorsey's lack of value, even if Howard's injury forces him to miss more games. Josh Smith (11 points, five boards) and Donatas Motiejunas (eight points, nine boards) are better targets in Dwight's absence.

Joey Dorsey will draw the start against the Lakers on Sunday in place of Dwight Howard (ankle).

Dorsey's game doesn't translate to fantasy very well, so he should only be considered in ridiculously deep leagues for owners in need of short-term value. The real beneficiaries in Howard's absence will be Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith.
