The Cavs have added A.J. Price to their training camp roster.

He's been fairly quiet since the Wizards needed him back in 2012-13 when John Wall had a knee injury to start the season. Price played just 3.5 minutes per game with the Wolves last season.
Sep 22 - 9:26 AM

Timberwolves waive A.J. Price.

He had an appendectomy in the middle of last month and still hasn't made it back on the court, but was out of the rotation anyway. There are a couple things that come to mind with this move: Ricky Rubio's ankle is likely fine and the Wolves are probably looking to add a big man instead of another guard on the end of their bench. Dante Cunningham has legal trouble and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is a shut-down candidate. Price played just 3.5 minutes per game with the Wolves this season.

A.J. Price (appendectomy) is not with the team for Friday's game.

He doesn't have a timetable to return and the Wolves won't miss his 3.5 minutes per game this season. Price has zero fantasy value.
Mar 14 - 6:15 PM

Wolves guard A.J. Price recently had an appendectomy and there is no timetable for his return.

He's played exactly one minute in March and his absence shouldn't have any impact on fantasy rosters or the Wolves' rotations. J.J. Barea will continue to serve as Ricky Rubio's primary backup at PG.
Mar 10 - 2:00 PM

Point guard A.J. Price has been invited to Timberwolves training camp.

The Wolves have 14 players under contract, but could waive Chris Johnson, who was signed by David Kahn for just $916,000, which would clear up two available spots. Price could easily win one of them, but will compete with Lorenzo Brown. And if Johnson is waived, SG Othyus Jeffers could be signed as a defensive specialist.

A.J. Price is expected to join the Wolves for training camp.

He had 22 starts at point guard last year with the Wizards while John Wall was on the mend, but didn't do much and made just 38.5 percent of his shots in those games. Price will compete for the third-string job behind Ricky Rubio and J.J. Barea.

A.J. Price is drawing interest from FC Barcelona, according to a Spanish media report.

Despite a strong finish to the season, Price has gone unsigned since hitting free agency this summer and hasn't really drawn a ton of interest around the league. The report said there's been no contract offer from Barca just yet, just interest at this point.

A.J. Price scored a career-high 24 points vs. Chicago on Wednesday,

He tied his career high on 23 on April 10 and had a strong finish off the bench this season. Price put up career highs in points, boards, assists and 3-pointers in 22.3 minutes and was a decent asset in fantasy leagues while John Wall was hurt earlier.

A.J. Price tied a career high in scoring with 23 points and hit a season-high five 3-pointers in the Wizards' loss on Wednesday.

Price hit 8-of-12 shots in 32 minutes off the bench in his best game of the season and has now hit double digits in scoring in three straight games. Unfortunately, he's not likely to have another game like this again this season, but he could still continue to see heavy minutes as the season winds to an end and he tries to set himself up to re-sign with the Wizards for next season.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 10:57:00 PM

A.J. Price reiterated his desire to re-sign with the Wizards after the season.

"I definitely want to be here, I've expressed that many a time," he said. Price also admitted he won't be fully healthy until after the season as he plays through his groin injury. Most notably, John Wall wants Price to return next season, and an endorsement from the franchise star might be enough for Price to return.

A.J. Price returned from a groin injury on Friday and played 18 points, scoring four with one assist against the Magic.

He'll be backing up John Wall and with Wall playing well, Price has very little fantasy value.
Fri, Mar 29, 2013 10:17:00 PM

A.J. Price will be in the lineup Friday night against the Magic.

Earlier Friday we noted that Price might need to be shut down, so it's definitely surprising that he'll be able to play tonight. He'll share the backup point guard role with Garrett Temple.
Fri, Mar 29, 2013 06:18:00 PM

Updating a previous item, A.J. Price (groin) is being listed as a game-time decision on Friday against the Magic.

Just earlier today we noted that Price was having trouble walking and could miss the remainder of the year, so we would be shocked to see him suit up on Friday. John Wall and Garrett Temple should expect a heavy workload on Friday.
Fri, Mar 29, 2013 12:04:00 PM

A.J. Price (groin) may not play for the remainder of the season.

Randy Wittman said the team anticipates Price will be back, but the backup point guard still isn't walking right and doesn't have a timetable for his return. "I played for about a month that I was in pain," he said. "I played through it and I progressively got worse. I'm really trying to get back on the court." Price will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, and while he's out, Garrett Temple will continue to see more minutes in the backcourt.
