Alexey Shved played 19 minutes off the bench and hit 2-of-7 shots for 11 points, five rebounds and one assist on Wednesday.
The only reason we even mention him is that Jose Calderon left the game with an Achilles injury. If he misses time, Shved and Langston Galloway are going to get a lot of point guard minutes. Feb 25 - 11:16 PM

Alexey Shved practiced with the Knicks on Saturday and will be available to play against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

There's no telling whether or not he will be in the rotation, but this is the Knicks we are talking about, so Shved couldn't be in a more ideal situation. Owners in deeper leagues can simply put him on their radar for now, and we will be sure to track his progress very closely in the coming days.
Feb 22 - 11:49 AM

Alexey Shved will join the Knicks for practice on Saturday, which means he's out against Miami on Friday.

He's turnover-prone, he has a 4.0 rebound rate this season, and he's been very inefficient in his NBA career, but Shved does have a 25.8 usage rate this season and thinks he's the best player on his team most nights. Considering how the Knicks are in dire straits for a wing, he's on the radar in deep leagues.
Feb 20 - 5:53 PM

Alexey Shved has been traded from the Rockets to the Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Shved wasn't playing for Houston and he's likely to see more burn for the tanking Knicks, but his career-long inefficiency makes him an unlikely fantasy option. He's a career 36.3 percent shooter who is below 30 percent from downtown, and standard-league owners can safely ignore him.
Feb 19 - 3:20 PM

Alexey Shved (personal) will not play on Wednesday against the Clippers.

Shved hasn't seen the floor since Jan. 25 so his absence will not be felt in fantasy leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 11 - 11:14 AM

Alexey Shved (personal) will not play in Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

He hasn't even seen the floor since Jan. 25 so his absence won't have any fantasy implications. Leave Shved on the wire.
Feb 10 - 7:46 PM

Alexey Shved (ankle) returned to action on Saturday against the Jazz, but played just over a minute and hit his only 3-point attempt.

He likely won't be in the rotation for Houston this season and is currently buried on their depth chart. You can safely leave Shved on the wire in almost all leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:42 PM

Alexey Shved (ankle) is considered probable for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

He hasn't played since December 26 and if you combine that with the fact that he is buried on the depth chart in Houston it's safe to leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:43 AM

Alexey Shved (ankle) will not play against the Wizards on Monday.

He could be out of the rotation upon his return and would not play more than 20 minutes in a best-case scenario. Ignore Shved in most leagues.

Alexey Shved (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Sunday.

He is playing around 10 minutes per game with his new team and some of that has to do with garbage time. Shved is just 1-of-6 from the field in his two games with his new team.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 03:30:00 PM

Alexey Shved will not be available for the Rockets on Saturday.

Shved was traded from the 76ers on Friday and can't play because Troy Daniels hasn't passed his physical, but Shved should be available for Monday's game vs. the Trail Blazers. Given the Rockets' backcourt depth, however, there's no reason to own Shved in any leagues.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 06:21:00 PM

Alexey Shved has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Ronny Turiaf.

He was gettting minutes as the backup point guard and is unlikely to be in the rotation with the Rockets considering he can't shoot. Shved can be cut across the board.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 06:25:00 PM

Alexey Shved played 11 minutes against the Nets on Friday with two rebounds and five misses from the field.

As expected, he lost a lot of playing time with Tony Wroten coming back. Shved can be dropped in just about all leagues.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 12:13:00 AM

Alexey Shved returned to the lineup on Wednesday with 13 points, two assists, one steal and no turnovers during a 95-79 loss to the Hawks.

He had a hip problem, which was supposed to keep him out tonight. Shved looks like he'll get some minutes for now, but they could go away once Tony Wroten (knee) is back. He's not a great fantasy option.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 12:03:00 AM

Alexey Shved (hip) will play in Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Tony Wroten's status is still up in the air, and if he can't go Shved could log some serious minutes and could be a sneak play in daily leagues. However, as soon as Wroten is cleared to play, Shved can be cut across the board.
