The Pistons have waived Adonis Thomas.

Thomas battled a couple of injuries during training camp, so it's not a surprise to see the Pistons waive him.

Adonis Thomas (calf) is in on the Pistons roster bubble.

Thomas hasn't been able to play due to a calf strain and he's losing ground to Reggie Bullock for a roster spot. "It's been tough, I mean, it's just really tough," Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said of Thomas. "I would love to think he could get in the game on Friday. He played really well early in camp, I thought, then had the injury." We'll keep an eye on Thomas' roster status, but he can be left undrafted in all fantasy leagues.

Adonis Thomas recently aggravated his calf strain.

Originally injuring himself during the first week of training camp, Thomas has been dealing with the concern since. On top of a very slight tear in his Achilles, the odds are starting to move in the wrong direction when it comes to Thomas' chances of making the roster.

Adonis Thomas said his injury is to his calf, not his Achilles.

This is good news because he reportedly had a very small tear in his Achilles. It's likely a slight tear to the very bottom of his calf muscle and he could be back on the court soon. Thomas has no fantasy value.

Adonis Thomas (Achilles) will return to game action this week.

He should see heavy minutes despite having a slight tear in his Achilles. Thomas won't be a fantasy option.

According to Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy, Adonis Thomas has a very slight tear (2 cm) in his Achilles, and he will have a few days off in order to address the pain.

The injury doesn't appear to be as serious as it sounds, but this isn't good news for a player who is fighting for a roster spot. Regardless of what happens, Thomas won't be a fantasy option this season.

Adonis Thomas (Achilles) will have a precautionary MRI on Monday.

Thomas complained "briefly" about soreness in his Achilles during Monday's practice, and it sounds like the Pistons are simply ruling out anything serious. Thomas is battling for a roster spot and isn't a consideration in fantasy leagues.

Adonis Thomas is dealing with some soreness in his Achilles.

It's not considered seriously and was only complaining of it "briefly," so we'll keep him active unless it becomes a more serious concern. Thomas is not a fantasy asset in any format.

The Pistons will give Adonis Thomas a real shot to compete for a roster spot against Reggie Bullock during training camp, according to Detroit beat reporter David Mayo.

Bullock isn't a lock to make the Pistons' opening-night roster with so much depth at the small forward position, and Thomas grants Detroit a bit more versatility in that he can play multiple positions. However, neither of these guys would have any value serving as an emergency depth guy for Detroit, so it's safe to leave both Bullock and Thomas untouched on draft day.

The Pistons signed F Adonis Thomas on Thursday.

Thomas will be competing with five other guys for the two remaining open roster spots in Detroit, and it'll be interesting to see if he's able to secure a roster spot after being an All-Star for Detroit's D-League affiliate last season. Thomas appeared in just six games for the Magic and 76ers last season, compiling averages of 2.3 points and not much else. If he makes the team, he still won't be worth drafting in any league.

The Pacers signed Adonis Thomas to a non-guaranteed deal on Friday.

It's a training camp deal for Thomas, who was with the 76ers to close out the 2013-14 season. Thomas also was with the Magic on a 10-day deal, but he only played 6.2 minutes per game in six outings last season. Even with the Pacers need for wings, Thomas will still need to be terrific to make the team.

The 76ers signed swingman Adonis Thomas to a 10-day contract on Monday.

Thomas went undrafted this summer but he's already had one 10-day stint with the Magic, during which he averaged 1.8 points in four games. Philly's revolving door of free agents and D-Leaguers is spinning as fast as ever while the regular season draws mercifully to a close.

The Magic have signed Adonis Thomas to a second 10-day contract.

Like they did with Dewayne Dedmon, the Magic decided to re-up Thomas to a second 10-day deal in advance of the Thursday deadline. Thomas has only played 14 minutes over the course of two games with the Magic, so his fantasy value is literally limited to the deepest league out there.

Orlando Magic sign F Adonis Thomas.

Thomas joins fellow 10-day contract recipient Dewayne Dedmon as the 13th and 14th players on Orlando's roster and will be available for Tuesday's game against the Wizards. While he has been effective in the D-League, Thomas won't immediately be part of the Magic's rotation and can be left on waiver wires.
