The Lakers released swing man Ira Newble on Wednesday.

He may end up playing overseas, although it sounds like he'd like to stay in the NBA.

The Lakers signed Ira Newble for the rest of the season on Tuesday.

He has no fantasy value.

The Lakers have finalized a deal with guard/forward Ira Newble, signing him to a 10-day contract.

The journeyman will try to make his mark with defense if he gets off the bench.

Swingman Ira Newble has decided to sign a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, choosing them over the Cavs.

A source said the Cavs offered Newble a spot on the team Wednesday, but the two sides could not agree on certain terms of his return. No deal has been finalized with L.A., but it sounds like he'll sign with them soon.

The Sonics will waive Ira Newble today to make room for a backup point guard.

With Earl Watson (flu) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) ailing, Seattle needs another healthy floor general. Mike Wilks will reportedly join the team today.

Ira Newble played 11 minutes in his Sonics debut, finishing with two points and one assist.

Newble and Adrian Griffin (zero points in three minutes) were supposedly going to play more minutes with the Sonics short-handed, but obviously that didn't happen. Neither guy should interest owners, outside of the very deepest leagues.

Cavaliers utility player Ira Newble was forced out of Wednesday's game because of back spasms, and should be considered day-to-day.

Newble could be shipped out in a trade on Thursday, but whether he ends up in Cleveland or somewhere else, his fantasy usefulness is limited.

Ira Newble got another start for the Cavaliers and scored a season-high 18 points to go along with eight rebounds and two steals.

He sealed the win with a late dunk, but despite starting the last eight games due to Cleveland injuries, has scored more than four points just twice over that stretch. Damon Jones came off the bench and added 13 points and three 3-pointers for the injury-depleted Cavs, but it's hard to imagine either player offering much fantasy value going forward.

Ira Newble started for the Cavaliers on Thursday, but you wouldn't know it by looking at his stats; he finished with two points, six rebounds and two steals

Head coach Mike Brown had hinted that little-used Cedric Simmons might start, but Simmons missed his only shot and played less than two minutes. Newble barely has any value, even when he's starting.

Ira Newble was whacked in the face by teammate Zydrunas Ilguaskas during Tuesday's game, and needed four stitches to close a cut by his right eye. He returned to the game.

Newble has settled into the Cavaliers starting lineup ever since Sasha Pavlovic went down, but he doesn't play enough to deserve a spot on fantasy rosters, outside of the very deepest leagues.
Wed, Feb 6, 2008 10:18:00 AM

Ira Newble hit 6-of-9 shots and a three for 15 points in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

Keep your eye on him. He's starting at shooting guard and may get some extra run with Drew Gooden (groin) and Anderson Varejao (ankle) out, although he'll only be useful in very deep leagues.

Ira Newble started at shooting guard for the Cavaliers on Friday.

Sasha Pavlovic will miss a couple months with a foot injury, but we're guessing coach Mike Brown tries several different players at the position before settling on his new starter.

Ira Newble missed Tueday's practice with the flu and is doubtful for Wednesday.

If this news impacts your fantasy team your league might be too deep.

In a blowout loss in Denver Monday night, Ira Newble had his best offensive night of the season, scoring 17 points and grabbing eight rounds.

Newble's best quality is his amazing defense. With LeBron James, Larry Hughes and Daniel Gibson cemented as regulars, don't expect a lot of nights like this from Newble.
