Hawks waive F Ryan Kelly.

Something could be cooking here, but Kelly has barely played this season. Kelly may not catch on with another team unless it's on a 10-day contract.
Jan 6 - 9:10 PM

Ryan Kelly (personal) was available to play vs. the Magic on Wednesday, but he picked up another DNP-CD.

Kelly has played a total of 47 minutes in nine appearances this season.
Jan 4 - 10:09 PM

Ryan Kelly (personal) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Spurs.

While the Hawks are at full strength, Kelly possesses precisely zero fantasy value.
Jan 1 - 4:53 PM

Ryan Kelly (personal) will not be with the team on Friday but will return for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

Kelly is with his family following the birth of his child. Kelly is not a part of the Hawks rotation and should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Ryan Kelly (personal) is not with the Hawks for Wednesday.

Hopefully everything is OK with him, but the Hawks should be fine without him. Kelly is not in the rotation and would need several players to miss time to have any value.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 05:52:00 PM

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.

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.

Celtics sign F Ryan Kelly.

He won't be making the big club.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 08:33:00 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.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 10:39:00 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.

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.
Thu, Jun 30, 2016 02:33:00 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.
Mon, Mar 28, 2016 12:02:00 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.
Sun, Mar 27, 2016 08:08:00 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.
