Chris Kaman is reportedly leaving his options open for the 2016-17 season.
There has been speculation that the 34-year-old might retire, but Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said Kaman is leaving his options open. "I think he’s leaving his options open as far as playing next year," Stotts said. "I don’t know where he is with that. I just heard today that he is beginning a workout regimen." While Kaman could help the Blazers or another team as a big man off the bench, he won't have any fantasy value if he does return for another NBA season. Sep 1 - 9:10 AM

Chris Kaman logged 10 minutes vs. his former team on Wednesday, finishing with four points on 2-of-6 shooting, five rebounds and one steal.

Terry Stotts made multiple adjustments tonight and getting Kaman involved early was one of them, something foreshadowed down the stretch of Game 1. The veteran appeared in only 16 games this regular season and isn't a viable DFS play, but his re-emergence does make Ed Davis (two points, six boards in 13 minutes) a much riskier option.

Chris Kaman (strained abdomen) logged eight minutes vs. the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with six points on 3-of-4 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

Kaman wasn't part of the rotation for most of the season but he earned minutes tonight with Portland down big in the fourth quarter. He knocked down some shots and was used to hack DeAndre Jordan, but he won't be a relevant fantasy player while Mason Plumlee and Ed Davis are healthy.
Apr 18 - 1:45 AM

Chris Kaman (strained abdomen) didn't play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Kaman isn't part of the rotation anyway, so this could just as easily have been a DNP-CD from Terry Stotts.
Apr 14 - 2:17 AM

Chris Kaman (abdominal strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Kaman isn't a regular part of the rotation in Portland, so his playing status is an irrelevant factor in fantasy hoops.
Apr 12 - 4:25 PM

Chris Kaman (ankle) is not on the injury report.

He suffered a minor ankle sprain on Tuesday, but he's fine. Kaman won't be playing much the rest of the way.
Apr 6 - 3:22 PM

Chris Kaman suffered a sprained ankle on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

His status for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder is up in the air, but he may not play since he isn't a consistent part of the rotation anyways. He finished Tuesday's game with one rebound and one assist in two minutes.
Apr 6 - 1:12 AM

Chris Kaman (illness) will be active on Saturday.

Ed Davis has been a boss, so the Blazers don't need Kaman. Plus, their small-ball lineup has been very good.
Apr 2 - 8:28 PM

Even with Meyers Leonard (shoulder) out for the year, Kaman still isn't in the rotation.
Mar 30 - 3:57 PM

Chris Kaman (illness) will not play against the Kings on Monday.

He was not in the rotation anyway. Kaman can be ignored in all leagues.
Mar 28 - 4:08 PM

Chris Kaman is a candidate to be traded by the Trail Blazers.

Kaman agreed to a role at the end of the bench in exchange for the Blazers picking up his $5 million option during the offseason, but it also came with the "caveat" that GM Neil Olshey would trade Kaman if it could result in improving Portland's roster. "I know it's a high possibility," Kaman said. Regardless of where the veteran center suits up, Kaman won't be a fantasy option at this stage of his career.

Chris Kaman (sprained right ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Kaman isn't in the rotation right now and the return of Meyers Leonard won't help his outlook either. Kaman is not a fantasy asset.
