Ryan Kelly is expected to sign a deal with the Hawks.
He was waived by the Hawks in training camp and is currently in the D-League, but the Hawks are waiving Walter Tavares to make room for Kelly. He will just be an emergency body off the bench, so he's not a fantasy pickup. Oct 31 - 12:43 PM

Celtics waive F Ryan Kelly.

Kelly was just signed on Friday, but this was done so the Celtics could have his D-League rights. The expectation is for the stretch forward to head to Maine and play for the Red Claws.
Oct 22 - 4:18 PM

Celtics sign F Ryan Kelly.

He won't be making the big club.
Oct 21 - 8:33 PM

The Hawks have waived Ryan Kelly.

The Hawks' roster is down to 18 after they let go of Matt Costello earlier in the week. Kelly will likely end up in the D-League or head overseas.
Oct 18 - 10:39 PM

Hawks sign F Ryan Kelly to a non-guaranteed contract.

Kelly appeared in 147 games over three seasons with the Lakers. He averaged 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in 13.1 minutes over 36 games last season. The Hawks have plenty of depth at power forward and center (Paul Millsap, Kris Humphries, Mike Scott, Mike Muscala, Dwight Howard, Tiago Splitter, Walter Tavares) so it is unlikely Kelly makes Atlanta's final 15-man roster. Even if he does, Kelly won't have fantasy value.
Sep 17 - 9:34 AM

The Lakers have declined to extend a qualifying offer to Ryan Kelly.

He's just not very good, and it would be surprising to see him on a different team next season. Kelly will be an unrestricted free agent, but don't expect him to sign anywhere until the major players are off the board. He'll be a non-factor in nearly all fantasy leagues.
Jun 30 - 2:33 PM

Ryan Kelly (wrist) was scoreless in his return from a three-game absence on Sunday, going 0-of-4 from the field with five rebounds and two turnovers in 17 minutes.

Kelly may get extra playing time on Monday, with Larry Nance slated to rest as a precaution, but he's only worth owners' attention in deep leagues. The third-year forward is averaging just 4.6 points per game this season, while shooting 37.7 percent from the field.
Mar 28 - 12:02 AM

Ryan Kelly (wrist) will be available to play vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

Kelly has missed the past three games and he's unlikely to play more than a handful of minutes tonight, so his return has a negligible impact in fantasy leagues.
Mar 27 - 8:08 PM

Ryan Kelly (wrist) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

The Lakers will have Larry Nance back, so they won't miss Kelly much. He can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 23 - 3:33 PM

Ryan Kelly (left wrist) did not participate during the contact portions of Sunday's practice, and he will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Kelly sprained his left wrist during Friday's game, and was spotted with a bandage on his wrist during Sunday's practice. The Lakers are off until Tuesday vs. Memphis, so Kelly has plenty of time to recover, although he's not a fantasy option in almost any setting.
Mar 20 - 5:12 PM

Ryan Kelly scored eight points on 2-of-5 shooting Friday, to go with nine boards and one turnover in 21 minutes.

Kelly apparently tweaked his left wrist during the closing minutes of the game, although X-rays came back negative and he has been diagnosed with a sprain. Kelly isn't often a major part of the rotation, so there won't be much fantasy fallout if he can't play Tuesday vs. Memphis.
Mar 19 - 3:09 AM

Ryan Kelly (illness) picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Kelly was available to play, but he fell out of the rotation with Larry Nance (knee) back in action. As long as Nance and Julius Randle are active, Kelly won't see the floor too often. He is not a fantasy asset.
Jan 27 - 1:31 AM

Ryan Kelly (illness) will be available on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

He has a stomach bug, but he will be available if coach Byron Scott calls his number. However, with Larry Nance (knee) back in action, Kelly may not be in the rotation. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 26 - 9:06 PM

Ryan Kelly (illness) did not practice on Monday and is questionable to play against the Mavs on Tuesday.

He has a stomach bug and shouldn't be out long. If Kelly can't go and Larry Nance (knee) is out again. Brandon Bass may play a little more.
Jan 25 - 3:59 PM

Ryan Kelly suffered a dislodged tooth on Friday against the Spurs.

He'll be out of the rotation as soon as Larry Nance (knee) is back, so leave him on the wire.
