The Clippers have signed Jeff Ayres to a second 10-day contract.

Ayres has made just three brief appearances for the Clippers since signing his first 10-day pact, and he is well off the radar in all settings.
Feb 2 - 6:19 PM

Jeff Ayres will be signed to a second 10-day contract on Sunday.

The D-League All-Star has made two brief appearances for the Clippers, so he isn't on the fantasy radar. If he plays well this week the Clippers could potentially sign him for the remainder of the season.
Jan 31 - 1:53 PM

Jeff Ayres made his Clippers debut on Sunday, scoring two points with one rebound and one assist in five minutes of garbage time.

Ayres could crack Doc Rivers' rotation, especially with Blake Griffin not guaranteed to return on Tuesday, but he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Jan 24 - 9:01 PM

The Clippers have signed center Jeff Ayres to a 10-day contract.

The Clippers traded away Josh Smith to the Rockets on Friday, so they needed to add some depth behind Blake Griffin (quad) and DeAndre Jordan. Ayres was playing in the D-League where he was the first overall selection in their draft, but he is looking at a very limited role off the bench in Los Angeles at best. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 22 - 12:35 PM

Jeff Ayres was the first overall selection in the 2015 D-League draft.

Ayres had agreed to a deal overseas, but he is back in the states and trying to use the D-League in order to return to the NBA. He'll play for the Idaho Stampede.

Jeff Ayres signed a one-year deal to play in China.

Ayres averaged just 7.5 minutes per game in 51 appearances for the Spurs last season, so his absence won't have any fantasy implications. We will be tracking his progress overseas, but it's safe to ignore him in all fantasy leagues.

Jeff Ayres (personal) will be available to play vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Ayres missed Sunday's game vs. the Hawks for personal reasons, but he is back with the team and ready to go. That being said, he is not a consistent part of the rotation and isn't a lock to see any action tonight, meaning he belongs on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.

Jeff Ayres (personal) was not with the team for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks, and he will not play vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Ayers isn't a part of the rotation anyways, so his absence has no fantasy implications. If Ayers is on your roster, your team probably isn't very good.

Jeff Ayres scored a season-high 16 points with four rebounds and one block vs. Detroit on Tuesday, logging 17 minutes off the Spurs' bench.

Backup big man Aron Baynes (neck) wasn't available and Ayres took full advantage of the increased playing time, hitting 5-of-8 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs in the Spurs' tough loss. Baynes is day-to-day and there's no reason to consider Ayres in standard leagues even if Baynes misses more games.

Jeff Ayres did not leave the Spurs' bench during Tuesday's 101-100 victory vs. the visiting Mavericks.

Tiago Splitter (calf) wasn't ready to play, which left extra minutes available in the Spurs' frontcourt. Gregg Popovich's deep rotations might allow some room for Ayres, who averaged 13.0 minutes last season, but he's a negligible fantasy player.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 02:02:00 AM

Jeff Ayres played seven minutes in Tuesday's win vs. the Bulls, scoring two points with three rebounds despite dealing with a sprained finger.

Ayres was icing the injury after shootaround and it's been bothering him for about a week, but it's nearly irrelevant for fantasy owners given his season averages of 3.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.3 blocks.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 11:39:00 PM

Jeff Ayres (sprained finger) has been cleared to return vs. the Magic on Saturday.

He's buried on the depth chart as long as Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw are healthy, but it's good to see the Spurs back at full strength as they go for their sixth consecutive victory.
Sat, Mar 8, 2014 05:58:00 PM

Jeff Ayres (sprained finger) will miss Thursday's game against Miami.

Ayres is nursing a sprained second metacarpal phalangeal joint in his right hand and will miss Thursday's showdown against the Heat. The 26-year-old is only averaging 2.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game over his last 10 contests, so this isn't major fantasy news for most leagues.
Thu, Mar 6, 2014 01:42:00 PM

Spurs big man Jeff Ayres scored a season-high 13 points in just 15 minutes vs. the Bucks on Sunday.

The Spurs rolled over the hapless Bucks in San Antonio, and Ayres' lack of fantasy value should be clear enough from the phrase "season-high 13 points in just 15 minutes." He should be avoided outside of the deepest leagues.
