Bulls waive F Tornike Shengelia.

Toko hasn't been part of Chicago's rotations and his departure trims Chicago's roster to 14 players, so they may add another veteran for insurance during the playoffs.

Toko Shengelia (flu-like symptoms) will not play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

He is out of the rotation and only really plays in garbage time. Fantasy owners can ignore Shengelia everywhere.

Toko Shengelia will reportedly be traded from Brooklyn to Chicago in a deal which will be finalized next week.

The Nets get PG Marquis Teague in return. Shengelia may earn a handful of backup minutes behind Mike Dunleavy, but it will take an injury for him to become a viable fantasy option. In 17 appearances with the Nets this season he's averaging 1.5 points while shooting 0-of-6 from downtown and 3-of-8 from the FT line.

The Nets have recalled forward Tornike Shengelia from their D-League affiliate in Springfield.

Shengelia will help the Nets with some depth as they play the second game of a back-to-back set on Saturday night, but he has no fantasy appeal, averaging just 1.4 points and 0.9 rebounds in 15 games with the big club this season.
Sat, Jan 11, 2014 01:54:00 PM

The Nets sent Tornike Shengelia back to the D-League on Sunday.

He was temporarily called up with Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms) unavailable on Saturday, though he didn't play vs. the Pacers. Brooklyn has off until Wednesday and Toko's re-assignment to the D-League shouldn't be taken as evidence that Kirilenko's back spasms have subsided.

The Nets have assigned Tornike Shengelia to their D-League affiliate.

Shengelia is no stranger to the D-League, having averaged 24.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for the Springfield Armor last season. On a positive note, he's been fully practicing for over a week after missing a few months following knee surgery.

Tornike Shengelia (knee) will not play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

He had surgery in late July to repair his meniscus and remains without a firm return date, even though he was initially expected to participate in training camp. The Nets roster is too crowded to anticipate value from Toko under the best of circumstances.

Nets F Tornike Shengalia (left knee surgery) has been sidelined during the first three days of training camp.

He was expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but there's no indication that he's suffered any setbacks in his recovery from meniscus surgery. The Nets are simply playing it safe with Toko, who should have a hard time earning minutes behind Paul Pierce and Andrei Kirilenko.

Tornike Shengelia will not be playing overseas in Spain this season, according to Nets Daily.

There was a report on Friday night that a Spanish team was trying to pry Shengelia away from the Nets, but that was shot down. He isn't going to get much playing time with the Nets adding a ton of depth in the offseason, so it's not too surprising that rumors would surface.

Tornike Shengelia underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee Wednesday.

Shengelia is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to Newsday's Al Iannazzone. The Nets have been pretty nondescript when it comes to Shengelia's recovery timeline, but Iannazzone's report jives with a statement from the Georgian Basketball Federation, which said Shengelia could return two weeks after the injury.

According to a statement released by the Georgian Basketball Federation, Tornike Shengelia (left meniscus surgery) could return to practice in two weeks.

The Nets are being more circumspect, declining to offer a timetable until after Shengelia has surgery on Wednesday. The knee injury helps to explain his lackluster Summer League performance and he should be ready in time for Brooklyn's training camp even if the two-week timetable proves overly optimistic.

Tornike Shengelia will have surgery next week to repair a damaged meniscus in his left knee.

Shengelia was injured while training with the Georgian national team. There's no official timeline for his recovery, but Shengelia is expected to miss Eurobasket in September. Even if healthy, we don't expect him to play a ton of minutes this year.
Thu, Jul 25, 2013 04:11:00 PM

Tornike Shengelia injured his knee and could need surgery, according to Georgian media.

He suffered the injury with the Georgian national team and the details are still emerging. He's unlikely to play in Eurobasket. The Nets have declined comment at this time, according to Regardless, he's unlikely to get many minutes this season with Brooklyn's added depth.

Nets recall F Tornike Shengelia, G Tyshawn Taylor from the D-League.

Both players have been up and down between the NBA and the D-League all season and we don't expect that to stop. Shengelia and Taylor will both likely find themselves back in Springfield sooner rather than later.
