Nate Wolters has officially signed a deal with Besiktas in Turkey.
Wolters was hoping to get another shot in the NBA during the summer league, but those hopes were dashed when he suffered a broken middle finger. It's possible that we will eventually see him get another chance with an NBA club, but it's safe to ignore him in fantasy leagues for the foreseeable future. Jul 24 - 11:38 AM

Nate Wolters suffered a broken middle finger fracture on his left hand on Monday.

He will miss the rest of summer league and this injury usually requires 4-6 weeks on the sidelines. Wolters finished his season in the D-League last year and is likely headed there again.
Jul 8 - 7:01 PM

Grand Rapids acquired the rights to Nate Wolters on Friday.

Wolters was just added to the D-League and Grand Rapids could move him in a deal. He was let go by the Pelicans last month and could wind up with an NBA team at some point due to an injury. He can be ignored in all formats for now.
Mar 6 - 2:15 PM

The Pelicans are going to let Nate Wolters' second 10-day contract without signing him to a new deal.

Even though the Pelicans are playing without Jrue Holiday (leg), Wolters has only seen 11 minutes of playing time over New Orleans' last three games. The 23-year-old may hook on as a bench player somewhere else, but he can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
Feb 3 - 9:52 AM

The Pelicans have signed Nate Wolters to another 10-day contract on Saturday.

Despite the absence of Jrue Holiday (leg), Wolters has averaged just 2.6 points, 2.2 boards and 0.8 assists in 11 minutes per contest in New Orleans so far. Needless to say, Wolters should be left on the wire.
Jan 24 - 12:10 PM

Nate Wolters came off New Orleans' bench for two points, one assist and one steal in seven minutes vs. the Raptors on Sunday.

This was Wolters' second appearance since joining the Pelicans on a 10-day contract, and he's failed to create fantasy value despite the absence of Jrue Holiday (ankle). It wouldn't be surprising to see Wolters earn another 10-day deal as emergency depth at PG, but he's not on the radar in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:06 PM

Nate Wolters will be available to play on Wednesday against Detroit.

After being waived by the Bucks, the Pelicans quickly signed him to a 10-day contract in order to bolster their backcourt depth. Wolters could see some playing time should Jrue Holiday (ankle) miss any action, so owners in deep leagues should put him on their radar.
Jan 14 - 10:24 AM

The Pelicans have signed Nate Wolters to a 10-day contract on Tuesday.

He just recently cleared waivers after the Bucks waived him and it didn't take long for the Pelicans to swoop in and sign him up. Wolters could see some playing time in the short-term with Jrue Holiday suffering an ankle injury on Monday, but with Jimmer Fredette in his way it would be hard to recommend taking a flier on Wolters outside of ridiculously deep leagues.
Jan 13 - 8:32 PM

The Pelicans are expected to sign Nate Wolters to a 10-day contract.

Nothing is official yet, but we will continue to follow this story closely. Regardless of where Wolters lands, he likely won't have much fantasy value so there is no need to grab him in most leagues.
Jan 13 - 7:05 PM

Nate Wolters is free to sign with any team after clearing waivers.

Wolters is now an unrestricted free agent after being waived by the Bucks. The Timberwolves have already shown interest in his services so he's bound to catch on somewhere, but fantasy owners in standard leagues can ignore the 23-year-old as he won't provide much value as a bench player.
Jan 13 - 1:39 PM

The Wolves are "surely" interested in Nate Wolters.

The Wolves would lose some money should they pursue Wolters, so it does seem a bit unlikely. Wolters will catch on at some point, but he won't really have much value unless he winds up on the 76ers.
Jan 9 - 5:17 PM

Nate Wolters has officially been waived by the Bucks to make room for Kenyon Martin.

Wolters will likely be able to land a deal with another NBA team, but he's nothing more than a backup point guard, and likely won't be able to sustain any fantasy value wherever he lands. Martin may be able to offer some short-term value as the Bucks currently only have three other healthy big men on the roster, so owners in deep leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the 15-year veteran.
Jan 9 - 9:58 AM

The Bucks are expected to waive Nate Wolters this week to clear a roster spot for Kenyon Martin.

Wolters picked up three straight DNP-CDs prior to playing 21 minutes on Wednesday and he shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. His departure will solidify Kendall Marshall's bench role, but that's about it.
Jan 8 - 11:36 AM

Nate Wolters never left the Bucks' bench on Tuesday.

He was available to play on Saturday but picked up a DNP-CD in that game also, and his inactivity doesn't seem to be related to his recent illness. We're taking him off the injury report, and any fantasy owners still holding him should cut bait without hesitation.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 09:53:00 PM

Nate Wolters is available to play on Saturday against the Rockets.

He is getting over an illness and is not guaranteed to play tonight. Walters has very little fantasy value.
