The Grizzlies will reportedly sign Bill Walker.

Walker worked out for the Cavs in the offseason, but he never got a bite after being thrown around as a potential minimum salary guy. He'll join the Grizzlies bench on a free agent deal.

Unrestricted FA Bill Walker worked out for the Cavs.

According to the News-Herald, Walker "might make some sense" for the team as the Cavs look to add some depth on the wing. Walker, who was waived by the Knicks in April, shouldn't cost more than the veteran's minimum if Cleveland were to seriously pursue him.

Knicks waived G/F Bill Walker on Friday.

Walker was a casualty of the Knicks signing of Dan Gadzuric earlier in the day. Walker averaged 5.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 19.4 minutes over 32 games (eight starts) this season for New York. He will look to latch on with another team needing a wing player.

Bill Walker (elbow) returned to game action on Thursday against the Magic, playing a token 16 seconds during garbage time.

Walker isn't returning to guaranteed playing time and we'll let you know if he can jump back on the fantasy radar.

Bill Walker (elbow) is shooting to return on Sunday against the Bulls.

Walker will likely be buried in the rotation upon his return and isn't worth fantasy consideration in standard-sized leagues.

Bill Walker (elbow) said that he should be able to play by next week.

Walker underwent surgery at the beginning of March and was slapped with a four-to-six week timetable. If he returns next week, that will be right on schedule in his recovery. Given the crowded wing rotation in New York, Walker is likely going to be the odd man out.

Bill Walker (elbow surgery) could be back in 1-2 weeks, according to Mike Woodson.

This far from a concrete timetable, and it's hard to envision Walker consistently getting significant run given the Knicks' crowd at shooting guard and small forward. Walker hasn't appeared in a game since Feb. 17.

Bill Walker (elbow surgery) expects to begin scrimmaging in about two weeks.

Walker could return this season, but it's not guaranteed that the Knicks will even try to work him into the rotation.
Sat, Mar 24, 2012 12:21:00 PM

Bill Walker will miss 4-6 weeks after surgery on Monday to clean out his left elbow.

It's an unfortunate blow for Walker and the Knicks, but if the team stays healthy his absence shouldn't be very noticeable in fantasy leagues. It sounds like he'll be ready for a possible playoff run.

Bill Walker (elbow) will not practice Tuesday.

Walker's diagnosis is mere "soreness." He is going to be a healthy scratch a lot of nights anyway now that the Knicks are at full strength.
Mon, Feb 27, 2012 02:56:00 PM

Bill Walker (elbow) was inactive for Thursday's game against the Heat.

Walker wasn't mentioned in the pregame injury reports, so we're marking him active on our side. He has lost any and all fantasy value he previously had, with the Knicks nearing full strength.
Thu, Feb 23, 2012 10:38:00 PM

Bill Walker (elbow) did not play on Monday against the Nets.

Walker could be held out through the All Star break as the Knicks are trying to integrate players into the Linsanity. Go ahead and drop him if you've been spot-starting or holding him in a deeper format.

Bill Walker has been ruled out for Sunday's game with an injured elbow.

No word on exactly what's ailing Walker, but it doesn't sound too serious. His role is likely to shrink even further with J.R. Smith in town and Carmelo Anthony healthy, so don't give him a second thought in average leagues.
Sun, Feb 19, 2012 12:42:00 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Bill Walker and Iman Shumpert will get Carmelo Anthony's (groin) minutes at small forward.

Anthony is officially out 1-2 weeks, but owners should note that the All-Star break looms in 2 1/2 weeks. In the three earlier games that Anthony missed this year, Walker averaged 9.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 3-pointers per game. Although Shumpert will likely come off the bench, he's a better candidate for both minutes and fantasy production thanks to his well-rounded game.
