Jeff Withey agreed to a one-year deal with the Mavs.

The Mavs still haven't brought back Nerlens Noel yet, but Withey should still have a tough time making the Mavs roster. Withey did get one start last season and played in 51 games, averaging 2.9 points per effort.

Jeff Withey met with the Clippers on Friday according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

They also met with Willie Reed, so it looks like their focus is on adding some insurance behind DeAndre Jordan. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times said the Clippers "definitely" have interest in Withey, but he hasn't been linked to many teams which suggests his contract demands will be low. Withey is a serviceable backup, but he's unlikely to help fantasy owners if he lands in LA.

Jeff Withey (illness) is expected to play Friday vs. Minnesota.

Minimal fantasy impact here, as Withey is averaging under nine minutes per game this season. Also, Derrick Favors (knee) is probable for Friday's game, further limiting Withey's potential playing time.

Jeff Withey (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

Withey didn't practice on Thursday, but he's only averaging 8.7 minutes per game on the season. The Jazz could be getting Derrick Favors (knee) back on Friday anyways.

Jeff Withey played 23 minutes in a start for Rudy Gobert (leg) on Saturday with two points, five rebounds, one assist and two steals against the Thunder.

Are you ready for some in-depth analysis? Rudy Gobert is better than Jeff Withey. Anyway, Gobert shouldn't be out for too long with soreness from contact to his leg on Wednesday, so leave Withey on the wire. Joel Bolomboy outplayed him, too.

Jeff Withey will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

He will get his first start of the season and should get some decent minutes as the only true healthy center on the roster. Withey is a decent stream if you're fishing for an extra game, but he likely won't have much value beyond today.

Jeff Withey is expected to claim the 15th roster spot on the Utah Jazz.

Withey is coming off a solid season in Utah and is only on the books for a little over $1 million next season. Boris Diaw could spend some time at center behind Rudy Gobert, so Withey isn't a lock to be in the rotation.

The Salt Lake Tribune expects Jeff Withey and Chris Johnson to battle for Utah's final roster spot.

Utah was reportedly "impressed by Withey last season, his defense, and his ability to step up when big men Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert missed significant time due to injury," so it certainly sounds as if he's got the early edge over Johnson. However, Withey is off the fantasy radar as long as he's playing behind Favors, Gobert, Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw.

Jeff Withey and Trey Lyles will start against the Lakers on Wednesday.

Both Derrick Favors (rest) and Rudy Gobert (ankle) are out, and sadly so are the Jazz for the postseason. There should be a ton of Lyles tonight, so he might have a huge night.

Jeff Withey returned to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Heat, scoring eight points with three boards, one assist and one block in 20 minutes.

Rudy Gobert rejoined the starting lineup and played 28 minutes, and his workload is only going to increase moving forward. There's a small chance that the Jazz may limit Gobert on Sunday vs. the Lakers since it's the second night of a back-to-back set, but Withey's owners should start evaluating other options.

Jeff Withey will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Heat.

Rudy Gobert will rejoin the starting lineup, so this change was inevitable. Withey played admirably in the Stifle Tower's absence, but his owners in standard formats should be prepared to move on.

Jeff Withey played 17 minutes off the bench on Thursday against the Rockets with eight points, four boards, one assist and two blocks.

He had a fairly nice run and was better than expected. With Rudy Gobert back in action, Withey will go back to being a bench big man. If you added him, it's probably time to let him loose.

Jeff Withey nearly double-doubled on Monday vs. the Rockets, scoring eight points on 2-of-8 shooting with 11 boards, three steals and three blocks in 35 minutes.

Derrick Favors has missed six games in a row due to back spasms, and it sounds like he could miss more time because he didn't even warm up on Monday. The Jazz have four more games on the schedule this week, so Withey is worth an add if you need a big. He is averaging 10.8 points, 9.0 boards, 3.0 blocks and 1.6 steals over his last five games.

Jeff Withey recorded a double-double in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies, finishing with 12 points, 10 boards, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 32 minutes.

Derrick Favors has missed the last five games due to back spasms, and Withey has been a serviceable big in that span with averages of 10.4 points, 8.2 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.8 blocks and 1.2 steals in 27.8 minutes per game. Favors is day-to-day, but Withey is worth a look if you need short-term value. The Jazz play five times next week.
