Kendrick Perkins was reportedly involved in a roadside altercation with his wife, and police are currently investigating the incident.

A 911 caller told police that a woman was hitting a man (Perkins) inside an SUV, but the police found no visible injuries when they arrived on the scene. Neither were taken into custody, and an officer drove Perkins home while leaving his wife with the SUV. The Cavaliers have yet to respond to this issue, but we will continue to follow this story closely throughout the day. The Cavaliers face the Bulls in Game 6 on Thursday, but as of right now it is unclear if Perkins will travel with the team.

Kendrick Perkins may be facing a suspension from the league for his Flagrant 1 foul against Jae Crowder on Sunday.

Perkins hit Crowder with a hard screen during the game, which resulted in an altercation, and Perkins threw a semi-jab at Crowder's face. It was a bit shocking to see him only get a Flagrant 1 for his actions, and the league may want to step in and dish out some additional punishment here. However, Perkins has only logged a mere six minutes of action throughout the Cavs' entire first-round series, so a potential suspension would have a negligible impact on Cleveland's rotations.

Kendrick Perkins made his Cavaliers debut on Tuesday with two points in two minutes of action off the bench.

Perkins signed with the Cavs for a chance to win a championship alongside LeBron James. "I know I probably won’t ever make an All-Star game," he said, "so the only thing on my mind is trying to win a championship." Perkins, who absolutely won't be an All-Star, is expected to fill a minor role as emergency depth behind Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. There's no fantasy upside here.

Updating a previous report, the Cavs have officially signed Kendrick Perkins, and he will be available for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Perkins needed 19 minutes of floor time to put in his averages of 4.0 points and 5.5 rebounds this season. There's basically no way he gets close to that amount of playing time as a reserve in Cleveland, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 24 - 4:53 PM

The Cavs are hopeful that Kendrick Perkins contract/paperwork will be completed in time to be able to suit up for Tuesday's game against Detroit.

If Perkins' paperwork is not completed in time for Tuesday's game, his Cavs’ debut will have to come Thursday vs. the Warriors. However, he'll be buried in the Cavs’ rotation, and there are no guarantees he even leaves the bench when he is in uniform. Perkins' days of relevancy in standard leagues are long behind him, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all formats.

LeBron James said he's excited to have Kendrick Perkins join the Cavaliers.

"I didn't know who he was choosing between, all I cared about was that he was gonna pick us," James said of the Cavs' newest addition. Perkins is a classic example of helping his real-life team a lot more than his fantasy owners. While he'll help provide the Cavs with another big body, his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues.

Kendrick Perkins is expected to have his physical on Monday, and there's a chance that he could play against the Pistons on Tuesday.

The Cavaliers brought him in simply to have another big body to bring off the bench, and his role is likely going to be very limited. Perkins belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 22 - 11:59 AM

Kendrick Perkins has committed to the Cavs.

The Cavs add another big man here, but it shouldn't have much of an impact in their rotation. Coach David Blatt has figured out a nice, tight big-man rotation with Kevin Love, Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. Perkins may get 10 minutes of playing time or so, but he's not a fantasy option.
Feb 21 - 4:14 PM

The Cavaliers are the frontrunners to sign Kendrick Perkins according to Yahoo Sports.

Perkins is expected to be waived by the Jazz as soon as Saturday, while other teams such as the Clippers, Mavericks and Bulls are also said to be interested. To be clear, Perkins won't have any real fantasy value no matter where he ends up, as teams simply want him to clog up the paint. Leave Perkins on the wire.
Feb 21 - 11:21 AM

Updating a previous report, the Bulls, Mavs, Clippers, and Cavs have reportedly all expressed interest in adding Kendrick Perkins once his buyout with the Jazz is complete.

At this point in his career Perkins is nothing more than a big body, and as we stated before, he is not going to have any fantasy value in any league regardless of where he lands.
Feb 19 - 7:35 PM

The Cavs and Clippers are reportedly "strong contenders" to sign Kendrick Perkins once his buyout is completed with the Jazz.

Perkins is destined for a backup role, and he isn't going to have any relevancy in fantasy leagues regardless of where he lands. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 19 - 4:52 PM

Kendrick Perkins has been acquired by the Utah Jazz and is expected to have his contract bought out.

Perkins was acquired by the Jazz as part of the Enes Kanter deal, but is expected to be bought out according to sources. The Clippers and Cavs are expected to make a play for Perkins' services and other playoff contenders will likely join the mix. While Perk will help solidify someone's frontcourt, he won't see enough minutes to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 19 - 3:15 PM

Kendrick Perkins will start against the Nuggets on Monday.

He is coming off a suspension and will start in place of Steven Adams. Mitch McGary has been ridiculous on the offensive glass in his brief career and he'll be worth watching tonight. Perkins can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 7:42 PM

Kendrick Perkins will be suspended one game for head-to-head contact with Tyreke Evans on Friday.

He deserved a suspension for head butting Evans after the play was over. As a result, Perkins won't play against the Clippers in Sunday afternoon's national game. The Thunder are going to need to count on Steven Adams a little more at center while Serge Ibaka could also get some run at the five. Obviously, Perkins isn't worth owning in most leagues.
