Veteran PG Chucky Atkins has joined recent workouts with the Suns, in the hopes of being invited to training camp.

Atkins is fading fast and wouldn't be more than a backup no matter where he lands -- in recent seasons he's bounced around between Memphis, Denver, Oklahoma City, and Detroit.

Chucky Atkins was a game-time decision on Friday, and played through his sternum injury for 14 minutes and had three assists without any other statistics.

He literally can't shoot a basketball, which is fairly critical in fantasy basketball, so he should probably be avoided.

Chucky Atkins continues to be limited by a bruised sternum injury he suffered on Jan. 20th.

The injury is making it difficult for him to shoot as evidenced by his two total shot attempts in the past three games. Atkins holds no value but his shots and minutes tend to bite into Rodney Stuckey's upside.

Chucky Atkins returned to action from a chest injury on Friday but failed to score.

He played 21 minutes, but would only be worth a look in deep leagues if Rodney Stuckey were to go down with an injury.

Chucky Atkins had two points and one assist before leaving Wednesday's game with a chest injury.

You know you're in a deep league if Chucky Atkins, who is day-to-day, is on your team.

Chucky Atkins moved back into the starting lineup on Wednesday, replacing injured Rip Hamilton, and had 13 points and two assists in the loss.

He would only have value if Rodney Stuckey were to go down, and even then it might be a stretch for him to be worth owning.

Chucky Atkins got extended run at point guard with Will Bynum (ankle) out Thursday, playing 35 minutes and finishing with nine points on 2-of-10 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

The line isn't great, but if Bynum continues to miss time owners in deep leagues could give Atkins a look for spot duty. Atkins left the game temporarily with a right ankle injury, but returned and hit two key free throws, and we'll be watching post-game reports to see if the injury is serious.

Chucky Atkins got a surprise start against the Hawks on Sunday, but managed just two points in 19 minutes of action.

Coach John Kuester shook up his lineup today, and even if for some reason this lineup sticks, it's highly doubtful that Atkins will have value when Ben Gordon (ankle) returns. Austin Daye, who had been starting for Gordon, came off the bench to score just two points in 11 minutes.

The Pistons will invite guard Chucky Atkins to training camp.

He'll simply be trying to make the final roster, but isn't a candidate to offer fantasy value this season.

The Timberwolves waived veteran guard Chucky Atkins on Tuesday.

The arrival of Ramon Sessions and Sasha Pavlovic solidified the Wolves' backcourt and made Atkins superfluous -- he was only guaranteed $760,000 this year, which is the main reason Minnesota traded for him. Jerry Zgoda writes, "expect Mark Blount --and his $7.96 million expiring contract-- to be waived in the next week."

Thunder guard Chucky Atkins is intrigued by the possibility of a trade to Orlando, who will be looking for point guard help with the injury to Jameer Nelson.

"I'm a veteran guy. If I had an opportunity to win a championship, that's what every guy at this level wants to do," said Atkins, who lives in Orlando. " ... But I'm not sitting here and saying I want to be moved ... If it happens, it happens."

Chucky Atkins was scoreless in six minutes of action in his debut for the Thunder on Monday.

Chucky has no fantasy value, but if he's going to get 6-10 minutes a game, it could end up hurting Russell Westbrook at some point. In fact, Westbrook played just 23 minutes tonight, while Earl Watson got 26 minutes of action.
Mon, Jan 26, 2009 11:35:00 PM

Chucky Atkins will wear No. 8 for the Thunder, but will not be active on Friday.

He could eventually see more playing time in Oklahoma City than the eight minutes he was averaging in Denver, but with Russell Westbrook entrenched as the starter and Earl Watson backing him up, Atkins isn't likely to have much fantasy value for his new team.
Fri, Jan 9, 2009 04:01:00 PM

The Nuggets have traded Chucky Atkins and a 2009 first round pick to the Thunder for Johan Petro and a 2009 second round pick.

It's unclear how the Thunder plans to use Atkins, but the team currently has a crowded point guard rotation with Russell Westbrook and Earl Watson. If he somehow got 25 minutes a game in Oklahoma City, he could have some value in deeper leagues, but that seems unlikely.
