News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt has struggled to find the floor recently, after being overtaken by Victor Claver in the rotation, prior to Claver's recent injury. Babbitt has appeared in just four of the team's last 13 games heading into play Thursday.
Analysis: Babbitt can be a dead-eye three-point shooter, but he has yet to show any other skills in his NBA career. Even on a Blazers team with no depth, Babbitt has barely been able to find the floor recently. He has little Fantasy value, and can likely be ignored through he end of the season in most formats.
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbit barely made his presence felt from beyond the arc in SUnday's contest against the Magic. Babbit went 2 of 3 shooting from the field, all of which came from downtown, as he finished with six points, a rebounds and an assist while logging nine minutes of game action in a 110-104 defeat.
Analysis: Babbit is starting to see a decent share of minutes off the bench as of late. He is averaging 14.5 minutes per game in February, which is far higher than his 11.8-minute average in January. Still, the 23-year-old is only averaging 5.5 points and 3.0 rebounds through that six-game stretch to start the month. Though he is a solid 3-point shooter, Fantasy owners should continue to ignore him in all formats heading into Week 16 (Feb. 11-17).
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbit was finally able to get back on the score sheet during Tuesday's contest against the Mavericks. Babbit, who had been shutout in each of his last three games, finished with three points in the 106-104 win. He made one of his four field-goal attempts and also added one rebound and one assist to his stat line, while logging nine minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Babbit is merely a reserve option for coach Terry Stouts, who hardly sees the floor. In fact, he has logged a combined 41 minutes over his last six games and racked up just 17 points over that stretch. While he is a decent 3-point shooter (36 percent), he should remain on the waiver wire in most formats at this point in the season.
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt played a small role for the Trail Blazers Tuesday against the Nuggets. Babbitt played 14 minutes off the bench, scoring three points on 1 of 3 shooting from the field. He made one three-pointer and grabbed one rebound, in a 115-111 overtime loss.
Analysis: Babbitt is playing a slightly smaller role than he did a year ago, averaging just 4.4 points in 12.3 minutes per game. Babbitt is a decent shooter (36.5 percent from three-point range in his career), but he does little else. He has very little Fantasy value outside of deep, category-based formats.
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt scored in double figures for the third game in a row Thursday, in a 101-93 win over the Nuggets. Babbitt scored 14 points in the game on 4 of 10 shooting, with four three-pointers and two free-throws made. He also grabbed a season-high eight rebounds in 26 minutes, before fouling out of the game.
Analysis: Babbitt has taken on a much bigger role for the Blazers recently, averaging 20.5 minutes per game in eight games in the month of December. He is averaging 8.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game in the month, after averaging just 1.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in November. Despite the increased role, Babbitts track record makes him nothing more than a low-end Fantasy consideration in deeper, category-based formats.
News: Blazers forward Luke Babbitt came off the bench for 15 minutes during Wednesday's loss at Indiana. Babbitt had a nice game as he hit two field goals among three attempts to score five points. Babbitt grabbed five rebounds in the game and hit a 3-pointer for Portland.
Analysis: Babbitt is very rarely going to score much and has seen less than 10 minutes per game overall on the year. He's getting some added run of late, but it isn't enough to make him viable for use outside the very deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt played just two minutes at the end of Thursdays 103-90 loss to the Clippers. He has appeared in just three of the teams first five games, usually at the end of blowout loss.
Analysis: Babbitt is a pretty good three-point shooter, but he obviously is unable to provide the team with much else. If he could, he would be able to crack the rotation on one of the shallowest teams in the league. The Blazers opted to decline the 2013-14 options on Babbitts contract earlier in the season, so they clearly do not consider him to be part of their plans. He has no value in any Fantasy formats at this time.
News: Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt caught fire from long range on Thursday against the Hornets, hitting 4 of 6 from three-point range en route to a career-high 16 points to help the Blazers win, 99-93. Babbitt played 17 minutes off the bench, grabbing three rebounds, and a single assist, steal and block each.
Analysis: Babbit has seen more playing time recently, however, that only translates to 9.4 minutes per game over the last five, as he continues to be just a reserve for the team. Thursday was a career day, which was why his minutes were relatively high, however Babbitt likely wont play that many minutes very often, so continue to ignore him in all formats.
News: Portland interim coach Kaleb Canales told NBA.com prior to Tuesday's game that guard Nolan Smith and forwards Luke Babbitt and Craig Smith will be in the rotation moving forward. Babbitt saw 15 minutes of action on Tuesday, missing all three of his shots. He added two boards and an assist in Portland's 116-87 loss.
Analysis: Babbitt seems to be in the 10-man rotation now, but that doesn't mean much in Fantasy leagues. At this stage of the year Babbitt should be left on waivers in all formats.
News: With the Trail Blazers down big on Friday against the Celtics, little-used forward Luke Babbitt had a rare opportunity to play some minutes late in the game. Babbitt scored 10 points, a season high, in just 11 minutes on 3 of 7 shooting in the game while grabbing six rebounds.
Analysis: Babbitt has been one of the last guys off the bench for the Blazers, and he only played Friday because the team was down by 34 at the start of the fourth quarter. Babbitt has no Fantasy value in any formats.
News: Portland SF Luke Babbitt was recalled from the NBA D-League on Tuesday. Babbitt will rejoin the Blazers' roster.
Analysis: Babbitt has been held to only two minutes of playing time against Sacramento in the teams second game this season thus far on the year for the Blazers. He has low-end Fantasy value.
News: The Portland Trail Blazers assigned F Luke Babbitt to the Idaho Stampede of the NBAs Developmental League on Wednesday. Babbitt has been held to only two minutes of playing time against Sacramento in the teams second game this season.
Analysis: Babbitt also played with Idaho last season and averaged 19 points and 7.6 rebounds in 13 games. His Fantasy value remains marginal and he should be left untouched in all formats.
News: The Trail Blazers have recalled forward Luke Babbitt from the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede, it was announced Monday by GM Rich Cho. Babbitt will be available for Monday night's game in San Antonio.
Analysis: Babbitt will likely add depth to Portland's roster and little else. He has minimal Fantasy value and is not worth using in the majority of leagues.
News:The Oregonian reports the Blazers have assigned rookie forward Luke Babbitt to the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede. The 21-year-old is averaging just 1.1 points and less than a rebound this season in 21 appearances thus far. The stint with the Stampede will be his second on the year, Babbitt averaged 18 points and nearly six rebounds per game with them in December.
Analysis: Babbitt has not had the opportunity to contribute to the Blazers' cause this season for the most part, and the team figures the added work in the D-League won't hurt. Fantasy owners should note that he played well down there before, but unless it leads to more playing time with Portland, he has no value. Leave him off of rosters for now.
News: Portland rookie forward Luke Babbitt hasn't done much since being recalled from the NBA Development League back in December. He saw just 3 minutes on Saturday against Cleveland and wouldn't contribute anything in the Trail Blazers' 111-105 win.
Analysis: Babbitt hasn't seen much action for Portland -- he saw just five minutes per game in January where he averaged 1.0 point and 1.0 rebound per contest. He saw action in just two contests, so his numbers really don't mean much. Once Marcus Camby returns from his injury, Babbitt will likely not make it off the bench or be sent packing. He can be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News:The Oregonian, reports that Portland has recalled F Luke Babbitt from his assignment with the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede. Babbitt, the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 rebounds in 27 minutes in four games with the Stampede.
Analysis: Babbitt was sent to the D-League for what was planned to be a six-game assignment as the Blazers had a stretch in which they had no more than one day between games. However, that plan has been scratched as Portland has been decimated by injuries after losing Marcus Camby and Nicolas Batum to shoulder injuries in the first half of Friday's game against the Timberwolves. While Babbitt has a ton of potential, he shouldn't be owned in Fantasy until he carves out a niche with the Blazers.
News:The Oregonian reports that the Trail Blazers assigned F Luke Babbitt to the Idaho Stampede of the NBDL on Wednesday. Babbitt, the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, has played 30 minutes for the Blazers this season, making 2 of 10 shots.
Analysis: General manager Rich Cho said the plan is for Babbitt to play in six games over the next 12 days, starting Wednesday night when the Stampede plays Dakota. Cho said the Blazers want Babbitt to play small forward during his stint in Idaho. Babbitt has potential and if he can find a niche with the team, could be a nice waiver wire addition during the season. As of right now he shouldn't be owned in Fantasy.
News: Rookie forward Luke Babbitt led the Trail Blazers (1-2) with 18 points on Friday night against the Nuggets. He went 5 for 9 from the field -- 4 for 6 from behind the arc -- and made all four of his foul shots. The rookie also grabbed five boards and dished out two assists.
Analysis: Babbitt averaged 21.9 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game for Nevada last year. He shot 50 percent from the field, 41.6 percent from 3-point land and 91.7 percent from the foul line. It's highly unlikely he'll have those kinds of numbers as a rookie, but he did have a solid outing on Friday night. Babbitt has potential and if he can find a niche with the team, could be a nice waiver wire addition during the season. As of right now he shouldn't be targeted on Draft Day.
