Bucks waived F Darington Hobson.

Hobson has bounced between the Bucks and the D-League all season and this move should have no impact on your fantasy team.

The Bucks recalled swingman Darrington Hobson from the D-League.

While it's possible this could be in response to the sudden benching of Stephen Jackson, it's also possible the two are unrelated.

Bucks recalled F Darington Hobson from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the D-League.

The 2010 second-round pick could see some occasional spot duty, but isn't likely to crack the Bucks' rotation right now.

The Milwaukee Bucks are going to assign Darington Hobson to the NBA Developmental League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants for Friday's game.

With the logjam in the front court for the Bucks, this is not that big of a surprise. It may take an injury or two for Hobson to make it back to the Bucks.

The Bucks signed Darington Hobson to a two-year, partially guaranteed deal.

Hobson is coming off of two major hip surgeries and is no way a guarantee to remain in the fold long-term. He'll battle for a spot at the end of the bench and obviously is not fantasy relevant at this time.

Darington Hobson, the Bucks second-round pick in 2010, has nearly finished rehabbing from two hip surgeries.

Hobson dealt with hip and groin issues throughout college and the pre-draft experience, but the injuries forced Milwaukee to release him last season. He said the Bucks have shown him "a lot of loyalty" and he's hopeful that they'll sign him once the lockout is resolved.

Free agent F Darington Hobson is open to returning to the Bucks.

Hobson was the Bucks' second-round pick last year, but was released due to a hip injury. He harbors no ill will, and wisely so. Hobson should be thankful for every NBA opportunity he gets.

Bucks will waive second-round rookie F Darington Hobson, sources tell Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy.

Hobson already had left hip surgery and is set for surgery on his right side later in the year. He's out for the season and the Bucks need his roster spot, possibly for Brian Skinner.

Bucks rookie swingman Darington Hobson will miss the entire season after undergoing successful left hip surgery on Tuesday. He is set for right hip surgery later in the year.

Hobson's first-year campaign was over before it began. The resulting fantasy impact here is nil, as the second-round pick was buried on the team's depth chart.

Bucks second-round F Darington Hobson is set for groin surgery.

Hobson may miss his entire rookie year. He wasn't going to get any minutes anyway with the Bucks so deep at the swingman spot.
Tue, Sep 28, 2010 10:02:00 AM

Rookie Darington Hobson is dealing with a groin injury that could cost him his entire rookie season.

Hobson will meet with a hip specialist next week in Milwaukee and will either set a target date of returning around the start of the season, or could end up being sidelined indefinitely, putting his season in doubt. Obviously he has no value in normal fantasy leagues, and is not likely to be worth owning even in the deepest of dynasty leagues.
