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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 12:11:00 PM

Alexey Shved (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

He will see a good chunk of playing time if he can go on Wednesday with Tony Wroten (knee) considered doubtful. However, Shved is only an option in deeper leagues or as a cheap daily play until Wroten is cleared to play and should continue to be ignored in standard leagues. Stay tuned.

Alexey Shved (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

With Tony Wroten (knee) downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game, Shved could be a sneaky fantasy play if he's able to suit up. Once Wroten is back, however, Shved doesn't hold much fantasy value in standard leagues playing behind Wroten and Michael Carter-Williams.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 01:42:00 PM

Alexey Shved (hip) did parts of practice on Monday, and he's considered questionable to play on Wednesday.

With Tony Wroten (knee) probable and Michael Carter-Williams healthy, Shved isn't someone owners in standard-sized leagues should be targeting for production.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 01:40:00 PM

Alexey Shved (hip) is further away from a return than Tony Wroten (knee).

Wroten has a chance to play on Wednesday, so we can probably consider Shved unlikely for another week. The Sixers also brought on Malcolm Lee, so the actual roster moves support the idea that Shved isn't close to a return. He can be cut in most leagues.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 06:40:00 PM

Alexey Shved (hip) will not play Friday vs. the Thunder.

Michael Carter-Williams will again see heavy minutes with both Shved and Tony Wroten (knee) sidelined. However, he has a very difficult matchup today vs. OKC, so people playing daily leagues may want to look for a better option.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 12:57:00 PM

Alexey Shved (hip) will not play on Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

With Tony Wroten (knee) also out, Michael Carter-Williams is going to play some serious minutes. Shved can be cut in most formats until we get a positive report, while Hollis Thompson also figures to get a boost in minutes on the wing. K.J. McDaniels may be the biggest beneficiary of them all and should be a must-start player on Wednesday.
