The Washington Wizards have waived Glen Rice Jr. on Wednesday.
The move was expected, as the Wizards decided to keep Rasual Butler instead due to his recent play off the bench. Rice Jr. may latch onto another NBA team in the near future, but he is off the fantasy radar for now and can be cut across the board. Jan 7 - 1:25 PM

The Wizards will waive Glen Rice Jr. on Wednesday, sources told Real GM.

The Wizards have tried to shop the swingman, but have had no success. The team reportedly prefers an open roster spot over Rice (and his deal becomes guaranteed on Jan. 10), so it's possible other interested clubs just wait it out in order to force Washington's hand.
Jan 5 - 9:28 AM

The Washington Wizards are shopping Glen Rice Jr. according to the Washington Post.

The Wizards lack financial flexibility and they have several options on the wing, so the move does make some sense. His contract will become guaranteed on Jan. 10 so he will likely be moved or possibly even waived before that date. Glen Rice Jr. does have some potential but doesn't project to have any fantasy value unless he lands in an ideal situation. We will continue to follow this story closely.

The Wizards assigned Glen Rice Jr. to their D-League affiliate on Thursday.

The Fort Wayne Mad Ants play back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, during which Rice should get some much needed minutes after being inactive for the Wizards' past four games. It would take a few injuries for him to have a fantasy-relevant role in Washington.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) returned to action on Thursday with 14 minutes, five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer in his season debut.

He backed up Garrett Temple, who played well tonight. Rice has too many holes on defense and issues with his shot selection, so he's not going to have fantasy value.

Glen Rice didn't play in Wednesday's opener for the Wizards.

He's got an ankle problem and while he was expected to play, he never got off the bench. He's worth keeping an eye on when healthy, as he could start at shooting guard until Bradley Beal is healthy again.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) is expected to play on Wednesday night.

Rice, who has been dealing with a sprained ankle, is expected to get solid minutes and production with Bradley Beal out for the next few weeks.

Glenn Rice Jr. (ankle) will be available for Wednesday's opener barring a setback, according to Wizards head coach Randy Wittman.

Rice should see plenty of run with Bradley Beal (wrist) and Martell Webster (back) sidelined, but Otto Porter will likely absorb most of Rice's value as the starting shooting guard. We'll update Rice's availability after Wednesday's shootaround, but he's not worth starting in standard fantasy leagues.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) went through a full practice on Monday and is hopeful he'll be ready to suit up for opening night.

Rice will see some extra run with Bradley Beal (wrist) and Martell Webster (back) sidelined to start the season. However, it appears that Otto Porter has won the starting shooting guard job, which will make it difficult for Rice to sustain any sort of value.

Updating a previous item, Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) is ready to go for opening night.

It's good news for the Wizards as a team dangerously thin at shooting guard right now. Rice could see some extra run with Bradley Beal (wrist) and Martell Webster (back) sidelined to start the season.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) remains questionable for the start of the season.

Rice's ankle injury has dogged him for about two weeks now, and the updates on his progress have been rather scant. We're not considering him likely for the opener, but it doesn't sound like he should be out too long, either. Even with Bradley Beal (wrist) out, Rice isn't on the fantasy radar.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) did "a few more things" at practice on Friday.

It does not sound like he'll be ready to start the season, so we'll get a chance to find out if Otto Porter's terrific summer league and preseason translate to regular season ball. Porter is worth a look in standard leagues. Rice can be left on the wire.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 03:03:00 PM

The Wizards have been "totally non-committal" on Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) for the season opener.

He hasn't been moving much at practice and it would appear he's closer to doubtful. If the Wizards feel comfortable with Garrett Temple and Otto Porter at the shooting guard spot, there's no need to rush Rice back into the lineup. If you're looking to make a pickup from the Bradley Beal (wrist) fallout, Porter is probably your guy in deeper leagues.

Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) is making progress in his recovery and was seen taking jumpers at practice Sunday.

We expect him back very soon but he should still be considered questionable for opening night. Rice Jr. has a great chance to carve out a significant role in the Wizard's offense with Bradley Beal out so he may be worth a flier late in standard leagues.

Glen Rice was in a walking boot to protect his sprained right ankle after Wednesday's game and he's expected to miss time with the injury, leaving him questionable for opening night.

He doesn't sound likely to play on Thursday and we're wondering who will start at shooting guard for the Wizards. It could be Otto Porter, who is really a forward, while journeyman Rasual Butler will likely get some run while Rice is out. Xavier Silas' name has come up as well, and PG Garrett Temple started there on Saturday. The Wizards are suddenly dangerously thin at shooting guard.
