Orlando Magic waive C Greg Stiemsma.
The Magic's roster now stands at 15 with Stiemsma being waived and the 30-year-old will begin looking for another team. While he could hook on somewhere due to the lack of big man depth around the league, fantasy owners can ignore Stiemsma. Oct 22 - 11:53 AM

Greg Stiemsma sat out Orlando's evening practice with an undisclosed injury.

It's unclear what's bothering Stiemsma, who joined the Magic on a training camp deal and is striving to make the regular-season roster as a backup center. We'll detail his injury once more is known -- the soonest he could play in an exhibition is Wednesday vs. the Heat.
Oct 5 - 6:43 PM

The Magic have added C Greg Stiemsma to their training camp roster.

Stiemsma has averaged 1.1 blocks and 0.6 steals in only 15.0 minutes per game during his four-year NBA career, but he barely played for Toronto last season and is a longshot to make Orlando's final roster. He's only worth a passing glance in the deepest of leagues.

Greg Stiemsma is close to a deal with the Magic.

It's likely a non-guaranteed deal, which basically means he's a camp invite. Stiemsma played just 66 total minutes with the Raptors last year. The Steamer probably won't be making the Magic.
Sep 9 - 5:48 PM

Greg Stiemsma (ankle) made his season debut on Tuesday, scoring four points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and five personal fouls in just 13 minutes.

Stiemsma has been healthy for a few days, but he was given DNP-CDs the past two games. He stepped up tonight with Jonas Valanciunas sidelined after taking a shot to his nose, but Stiemsma doesn't have enough upside to pick him off the waiver wire in typical leagues.

Greg Stiemsma (ankle) is expected to be ready for Toronto's game on Saturday after missing the opener.

While he may some relief minutes in Saturday's game, he simply won't have enough fantasy value to be relevant in almost any leagues. You can safely ignore him on your waiver wire.

Greg Stiemsma (ankle) is out on Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

He doesn't have much fantasy value as he is currently buried on the Toronto depth chart. Lucas Nogueira will be activated tonight against his old team. Both players can be safely ignored in almost every league.

Greg Stiemsma is still battling for the Raptors' final roster spot.

In the Raptors' version of Thunderdome, three men will enter and only one will be left standing. Only one of Stiemsma, Jordan Hamilton, and Will Cherry will make the Raptors' final roster cut on Monday and head coach Dwayne Casey said the decision will be "a good debate with the coaching staff and management." Even if Stiemsma hooks on with the Raptors, he won't provide much fantasy value as a a reserve player.

Greg Stiemsma passed the league's concussion test, and has been cleared to return to the court.

Stiemsma will play in a very limited reserve role for the Raptors, and he's not going to be worth drafting in any format.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 01:16:00 PM

Greg Stiemsma did not pass the league's baseline concussion test so he will not be available for Friday's preseason game vs. the Celtics.

Stiemsma will be re-tested in 24 hours, however he's never been able to contribute a lot to the stat sheet as he boasts career averages of 3.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game. Obviously he's not on the radar in any format.

Greg Stiemsma (concussion) is still out as he goes through the concussion protocol.

The Steamer left Tuesday's game after taking a hard fall and sat out Thursday's practice as part of the concussion protocol. While this doesn't seem to be anything that will put his regular season availability in doubt, Stiemsma doesn't hold a lot of standard league fantasy value as a bench player with the Pelicans.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said that Greg Stiemsma should be fine after taking a hard fall on Tuesday.

Stiemsma left the court under his own power but he didn't return to the game. "I think he just got the wind knocked out of him," Casey said. The Raptors are likely to perform concussion tests as a precaution, but we're considering Stiemsma day-to-day.

Greg Stiemsma walked into the Raptors' locker room under his own power after a hard fall on Tuesday, and did not return to the court.

Stiemsma looked "a bit groggy" according to beat writer Ryan Wolstat, so the Raptors likely ran some concussion tests as a precaution. The veteran big man is hoping to use his energy and pesky defense to carve out a role off the bench this season.

Toronto Raptors sign C Greg Stiemsma.

Stiemsma's deal will be on a one-year, $1 million contract, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. The Steamer averaged 2.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks in 18 minutes per game with the Pelicans last season and holds very little fantasy value heading into 2014-15.

Pelicans waive C Greg Stiemsma.

Stiemsma began the season as New Orleans' starting center but he quickly proved to be ineffective, and has averaged 2.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 18 minutes per game on the season. It speaks volumes that he was replaced by Melvin Ely with two games left in the season.
