The Wizards worked out Ben Uzoh and Blake Ahearn.
A.J. Price broke his hand and is out 4-to-6 weeks, so the Wizards are extremely thin at point guard with John Wall (knee) also out. Earl Barron could be cut and neither Uzoh nor Ahearn have fantasy value. Sun, Dec 9, 2012 02:30:00 PM

Nuggets sign Ben Uzoh and Anthony Carter for training camp.

Uzoh was just waived by his French team and will now look for a way to return to the NBA. Carter, a veteran, isn't expected to make the team, but could very easily join George Karl's coaching staff.

Ben Uzoh will be waived by his French team Cholet.

Uzoh may look to the D-League or another overseas job as a springboard to return to the NBA.

Ben Uzoh has signed with Cholet in France.

Uzoh has spent parts of the last two seasons between the Nets, Cavs and Raptors. An undrafted point guard out of Tulsa, Uzoh actually started eight games for the Raptors last season, averaging 7.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.4 steals in that role. He should have a much larger role and a more lucrative paycheck overseas.

Ben Uzoh recorded his first career triple-double in the Raptors' 98-67 blowout win over the Nets on Thursday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-19 shooting with 11 rebounds, a career-high 12 assists, four steals, and one block in 46 minutes.

This is a silly season result if we've ever seen one. Alan Anderson scored 20 points and hit five threes, giving category hunters a big push tonight.

Ben Uzoh scored eight points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in the Raptors' loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Uzoh will start the rest of the way with Jose Calderon all-but ruled out with an eye injury, and if you're desperate for PG stats then give him a look.
Tue, Apr 24, 2012 12:19:00 AM

Ben Uzoh started in place of Jose Calderon (eye) again on Wednesday, but finished with just three points on 1-of-4 shooting with five rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes of action.

Uzoh's fantasy value is directly tied to the health of Calderon. Should Calderon continue to miss time, Uzoh will be worth starting despite tonight's poor performance.

Ben Uzoh hit just 2-of-11 shots for four points in the Raptors' 109-87 loss to the Hawks on Monday, but set career-highs for rebounds (10) and assists (eight) in 33 minutes of action in another start at PG.

We're calling Jose Calderon (eye) questionable for Wednesday and while the injury's severity is in question, at the end of the year anything can happen. In Uzoh's last three starts he has averaged 30 minutes, 7.3 points, 0.0 threes, 7.0 boards, 5.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.3 blocks, 1.7 turnovers, and 40.7 percent shooting from the field and he hasn't attempted a free throw.

Raptors signed PG Ben Uzoh for the remainder of the season.

With Jose Calderon (eye) out until at least Wednesday, Uzoh is the Raptors' starting point guard. He's managed 9.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.0 steals in that role this season. Owners just need to be aware that Uzoh has attempted just one 3-pointer all season.
Mon, Apr 16, 2012 04:21:00 PM

Ben Uzoh had 10 points, three assists and three rebounds in Sunday's win over the Hawks.

With Jose Calderon (eye) out again Monday, Uzoh appears poised for his third straight start. However, most spot-starters should be able to do better. Uzoh has attempted just one 3-pointer all year and Calderon is tentatively expected back Wednesday.
Sun, Apr 15, 2012 08:57:00 PM

Ben Uzoh started at point guard for injured Jose Calderon (eye) on Friday against the Cavs, scoring nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes.

This should be considered a win for anybody that chose to spot-start Udoh tonight, and needless to say he won't have any fantasy value unless both Calderon and Gary Forbes remain out.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 11:51:00 PM

With Jose Calderon (eye) and Gary Forbes (knee) both sitting out Friday's game, Ben Uzoh will get a rare start at PG for the Raptors.

Uzoh is only a recommended play in the deepest of fantasy leagues for Friday night.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 06:26:00 PM

Raptors signed G Ben Uzoh to a second 10-day contract.

Uzoh will function as point guard depth behind Jose Calderon with Jerryd Bayless (oblique) done for the season, but there is no fantasy value to be found here.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 10:26:00 AM

Ben Uzoh made his Raptors debut on Wednesday and had five points in 13 minutes.

Nothing to see here, folks.
Thu, Mar 29, 2012 01:08:00 AM

Raptors signed G Ben Uzoh to a 10-day contract.

Uzoh will provide some insurance with DeMar DeRozan (ankle) and Jerryd Bayless (hip) both facing injuries. He won't have fantasy value even if he sticks with the team for the remainder of the season.
