The Clippers have reportedly signed Ekpe Udoh to a one-year, $1 million contract.
Udoh should make the regular-season roster given L.A.'s relative lack of frontcourt depth. In addition to starters DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, they have Spencer Hawes, Glen Davis and now Udoh. He provides interior defense and rebounding, but won't get enough playing time to make a fantasy impact. Sep 3 - 1:19 PM

The Heat have "considered" signing unrestricted free agent Ekpe Udoh, according to the Miami Herald.

The Heat aren't limiting their big-man search to Udoh, as they've also been linked to Andray Blatche, Emeka Okafor, Ekpe Udoh and Jason Maxiell. Udoh will serve a negligible role for fantasy purposes regardless of where he lands in free agency.
Aug 20 - 10:44 AM

The Bucks have informed Ekpe Udoh that they will not be extending a qualifying offer, and he is set to become an unrestricted free agent, sources tell Yahoo! Sports.

Udoh has struggled with health throughout his career, and he only made it through 42 games last season pulling in averages of 3.4 points, and 3.5 rebounds on 39.9 percent shooting from the floor. Regardless of where he lands, he is not a fantasy option in any league.
Jun 30 - 6:38 PM

Ekpe Udoh will not play on Friday vs. the Cavs.

The Bucks have a Guys Night Out special tonight, so those fellows won't have the luxury of seeing Udoh in the lineup. The former Warrior has dealt with knee issues for much of his career and will likely never have a chance to be anything more than a role player.
Apr 11 - 7:09 PM

Ekpe Udoh (ankle, knee) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He's dealt with injuries for much of the season and might not make it back this year. Udoh has played in just 42 games this season at just 19.1 minutes per.
Apr 9 - 6:27 PM

Ekpe Udoh will not play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He is likely dealing with his ankle and knee issues, which have bothered him for much of the season. Udoh is likely out for a while and is not worth owning in any league.
Apr 5 - 7:44 PM

Ekpe Udoh is not playing against the Bulls on Friday.

There is no reason as to why he's sitting this one out, but it's probably to his knee. Udoh doesn't have any fantasy value.
Apr 4 - 9:24 PM

Ekpe Udoh played four minutes on Sunday vs. the Bobcats and did not score while grabbing one rebound.

It was his third game back from a 12-game hiatus and Udoh continues to do next to nothing, averaging 1.3 points and 1.3 boards in 8.0 minutes per game in that stretch with a DNP mixed in there as well. Homer Simpson's favorite player is not on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Mar 16 - 4:05 PM

Ekpe Udoh returned from an ankle injury on Tuesday, finishing with zero points in 12 minutes.

He could have a few good games over the rest of the season, but is far from reliable. Ignore him.
Mar 12 - 12:14 AM

Ekpe Udoh (knee) is a game-time decision to face the Wizards on Saturday.

He's probably not going to get many minutes with the way Jeff Adrien has stepped up. Udoh has been injured far too often to be counted on in fantasy leagues.
Mar 8 - 7:43 PM

Ekpe Udoh will not play against the Pelicans on Friday night.

His right knee will keep him out for his 10th game and he's probably not going to be back in the rotation upon his return. Jeff Adrien has thrown a wrench in an already messy frontcourt rotation for the Bucks and might get more minutes tonight.
Mar 7 - 2:14 PM

Ekpe Udoh (knee) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

Coach Larry Drew said Udoh is close to returning, but it might not even matter. Jeff Adrien has stepped up in the second unit and is a better rebounder, so that is a big asset for a team that ranks 29th in field goal percentage. Udoh can be ignored in all formats.
Mar 5 - 6:36 PM

Ekpe Udoh (knee) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

His knee and ankle issues have kept him out for much of the season and he has no timetable to return. The arrival of Jeff Adrien likely pushes Udoh out of the rotation regardless of his health. The Bucks are starting Brandon Knight, Nate Wolters, Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia.
Mar 1 - 6:56 PM

Ekpe Udoh (knee) won't play against the Sixers on Monday.

After the way Jeff Adrien debuted on Saturday, Udoh probably won't be in the rotation. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 23 - 3:11 PM

Ekpe Udoh (knee) is questionable for Tuesday night's game against the Magic.

He's played just 15 minutes since Jan. 25 due to knee and ankle injuries. Udoh has been injured throughout his career and the Bucks are going to have to manage his minutes. With Larry Sanders essentially out for the season, John Henson sliding over to center more often should open up some minutes for Udoh. Still, he's off the radar in almost all leagues until he can prove he's able to stay on the court.
