The Rockets have waived Pablo Prigioni.

Mike D'Antoni said waiving Prigioni was a difficult decision, but he feels Tyler Ennis was a better fit for his system. Prigioni will turn 40 years old this season, so it could be tough for him to find another team to take him.
Oct 25 - 4:02 PM

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) returned on Friday with 10 points, one assist and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes.

He may not have been 100 percent, but coach Mike D'Antoni wanted to get a look at him. It's still unclear how the Rockets will handle the point guard minutes behind James Harden, but there likely won't be enough to matter for Prigioni to have value.
Oct 22 - 12:23 AM

Pablo Prigioni (left shoulder) is questionable to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Spurs.

If there's any doubt about the health of Prigioni's shoulder, you can bet that he won't be taking the court Friday night. Prigioni will turn 40 years old this season, and is not worth a draft pick in any setting.
Oct 20 - 5:18 PM

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) will not play on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

With Patrick Beverley (knee) and Prigioni out, James Harden is going to handle most of the point guard minutes. Tyler Ennis should be in the rotation with around 15-20 minutes tonight.
Oct 19 - 2:39 PM

Pablo Prigioni (left shoulder sprain) will not play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

He was doubtful coming in, so this isn't a surprise. Tyler Ennis could see some extended minutes with Patrick Beverley (knee) sidelined, as well.
Oct 15 - 6:28 PM

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

It's a left shoulder sprain, so he's not going to play in a meaningless game. Regardless, Prigioni will not have any fantasy value as the third-string PG in Houston.
Oct 14 - 12:57 PM

Pablo Prigioni was forced out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Pelicans with a strained left shoulder, and he will not return.

Prigioni took a hard hit from Alexis Ajinca, and that was enough to end the 39-year-old's evening. Prigioni will have a negligible role behind Patrick Beverley this season, so he's not worth drafting in any format.
Oct 12 - 9:24 AM

Rockets sign G Pablo Prigioni.

It's a two-year deal with a team option on the second year. Prigioni is 39 years old and played in 59 games last year for the Clippers. He won't have much fantasy value.
Jul 29 - 6:07 PM

The Rockets and free agent Pablo Prigioni have reportedly agreed to a two-year deal.

The second year is a team option. Prigioni is 39 years old and he'll fill a minor role backing up Patrick Beverley at point guard, especially since James Harden and Eric Gordon are capable of running the offense. Prigioni, who spent time with the Rockets in 2014-15, finished last season with averages of 2.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
Jul 13 - 11:39 PM

Pablo Prigioni will "probably" retire this summer according to ESPN.

He will be 39 years old in just a few weeks, so this isn't really a surprise. Prigioni averaged just 13.9 minutes in 59 regular season appearances and was never a reliable fantasy option.

Apr 30 - 9:40 AM

Pablo Prigioni shot just 4-of-15 from the field during Wednesday's road loss, but he still posted eight points, nine assists, six rebounds and four steals in 39 minutes of action.

The Clippers rested all of their starters except for Luc Mbah a Moute, so Prigioni was thrust into a massive role against an up-tempo Suns squad. The veteran was uncharacteristically inefficient, shooting poorly while committing a game-high six turnovers, and he'll return to a bit role with the playoffs looming.
Apr 14 - 1:21 AM

Pablo Prigioni will return to the bench for Sunday's game against Dallas, with Chris Paul (rest) back in the starting five.

Austin Rivers (ankle) is also going to play on Sunday, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see the 38-year-old veteran given a rest day after he logged 42 minutes in a start during Sunday's win over Utah. He's not worth deploying in any setting.
Apr 10 - 2:13 PM

Pablo Prigioni scored 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting Friday, to go with seven boards, seven assists, two 3-pointers and one turnovers in 42 minutes of action.

With both Chris Paul (rest) and Austin Rivers (ankle) taking the night off, the Clippers really didn't have any other options to run the point, and Prigioni made the most of his opportunity. He quipped after the game that the last time he logged over 40 minutes he was in Spain, and there's a good chance the 38-year-old veteran receives a rest day for Sunday's game against the Mavs.
Apr 9 - 2:32 AM

Pablo Prigioni will enter the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Jazz.

Both Chris Paul (rest) and Austin Rivers (ankle) are unavailable for this one, so the 38-year-old veteran figures to get all the run he can handle tonight. He's someone to consider deploying as a streamer option or punt play in DFS, although Jamal Crawford is a much more attractive target.
