News: Less than two weeks after acquiring him in a trade from the Knicks, the Rockets waived center Jerome Jordan Wednesday. He was on an un-guaranteed contract, so the move does not come as a total surprise.
Analysis: Jordan averaged just five minutes per game over 21 contests as a rookie for the Knicks last season, and he was unimpressive when he did play. At this point, the seven-footer will likely catch on somewhere, but he is not worth targeting in any Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
News: The Rockets acquired Jerome Jordan, Josh Harrellson and Toney Douglas in a trade with the New York Knicks for Marcus Camby Monday.
Analysis: The 7-foot Jordan, a native of Jamaica, averaged 5 minutes in 21 games last season. While he could see more run with the Rockets, we don't expect him to become a viable Fantasy option at any point in the 2012-13 season.
News: With the Erie BayHawks season coming to an end on Tuesday in the D-League playoffs, the Knicks have re-called center Jerome Jordan. Jordan, the 44th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, appeared in eight games with the BayHawks, including the playoffs, averaging 18.0 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
Analysis: Jordan has appeared in just 19 games with the Knicks this season, averaging 4.3 minutes per game. He is unlikely to see any significant playing time down the stretch, so leave him on waivers in all formats.
News: The Knicks assignment center Jerome Jordan to the Erie Bayhawks of the NBADL the team announced on Tuesday. Jordan averaged 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 19 games with the Knicks this season.
Analysis: Jordan stopped seeing consistent minutes once the Knicks got Jared Jefferies back from an injury. He will now get a chance to play everyday down in the D-League and could be back up with the team at some point later in the season. Obviously Jordan can be ignored in all formats while he is currently not on an NBA roster.
News: The New York Times reports that the Knicks have recalled center Jerome Jordan from the D-League on Thursday. He'll join them in Milwaukee for Friday's game.
Analysis: Jordan has minimal Fantasy value even though he's back with the Knicks. Ignore him in the majority of leagues since he's not expected to get enough playing time to be relevant.
News: The New York Knicks recalled C Jerome Jordan and G Jeremy Lin from the NBA Development League on Monday. Both players were sent to Erie of the D-League last Tuesday.
Analysis: Jordan could see some playing time with fellow C Josh Harrellson sidelined for six weeks with a wrist injury. He appeared in six games before being shipped to Erie and averaged just 1.3 points a night. He should remain untouched in all Fantasy formats for now.
News: New York sent center Jerome Jordan and guard Jeremy Lin to the D-League on Tuesday. The two players are set to play for New York's D-League affiliate Erie.
Analysis: Jordan has played in six games for the Knicks thus far this year and is averaging 1.3 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. He has low-end Fantasy value and is not a player to target in any Fantasy formats.
News: The New York Post reports Saturday that the Knicks have added 7-foot center Jerome Jordan to the roster. Jordan played in Sloveia during the lockout. Last season, Jordan played in the Serbian League for Hemofarm.
Analysis: Jordan will likely be a reserve for the Knicks and more of a project for 2011-12. Keep an eye on his progress, but he is only worth owning in deep dynasty leagues.
News: The New York Post reports that Knicks center Jerome Jordan hopes to help the team in 2011-12 after spending this past year playing in Serbia. "Being drafted by this team in their situation, they need a big guy and I look forward to helping that need," Jordan said. "Coming out of college last year, I thought I could play minutes right away. It worked out. I came over here, got game experience and went up against more physical and skilled players than in college. I played against tough players over here and I'm ready to contribute to an NBA team." The Knicks obtained Jordan on draft night last June. The Bucks took Jordan with the 44th pick in the second round and traded him to the Knicks for cash. Jordan, who played at Tulsa, underwent surgery three weeks ago after his appendix ruptured and is sitting out the Hemofarm playoff run. Next week, the season will be over, and he will head to New York to meet with the Knicks staff. It is likely he won't work out for the team upon doctor's orders, but the Knicks staff want to get to be around him before the expected July 1 lockout hits.
Analysis: Jordan would likely be a reserve for the Knicks and more of a project if he joins the team in 2011-12. Keep an eye on his progress, but he is only worth owning in deep dynasty leagues.
News: The Milwaukee Bucks have traded the draft rights to 2010 second-round pick Jerome Jordan to the New York Knicks for cash considerations. Jordan was the No. 44 overall pick and one of three second-round draft picks made by the Bucks.
Analysis: The 7-1, 253-pound Jordan averaged 15.4 points and 9.4 rebounds in his senior season at Tulsa. He will provide the Knicks with roster depth and is not expected to see enough playing time to come even close to matching his collegiate production.
