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.

Adonis Thomas will sign a 10-day deal with the Magic on Monday and will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

He's having a solid campaign in the D-League this year, averaging 16.2 points, 4.2 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.5 turnovers with the Springfield Armor. Thomas has back-to-back 21-point games and is improving, but he's still not projected to be in the rotation right away.

Nets waive G Jorge Gutierrez, F Chris Johnson and F Adonis Thomas.

They have their roster at 15 and will enter the season as one of the deeper, older teams in the NBA. Thomas will likely have to play in the D-League.

The Nets signed Adonis Thomas on Friday.

Thomas will join the training camp roster and is likely headed to the D-League. The 6'7" Memphis product will have a lot of learning to do to make it to the association.
