Daye will sign a second 10-day contract with the Hawks on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports.

As expected, Daye will stick with the Hawks for at least a few more games. He's logged just nine total minutes in the team's five games since he signed the first contract.

Daye will likely get another 10-day contract, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Daye has played in two out of a possible five games since joining the Hawks, logging just three and six minutes in those appearances. He's only gotten work in garbage time thus far, but the Hawks figure to give minutes to some non-rotation guys over the final few weeks of the season.

Daye saw his first minutes in a Hawk uniform Wednesday and finished with three points, two rebounds, and an assist in six minutes.

Daye finally got on the floor after two DNP's with the Hawks as they were getting routed by the Warriors on Wednesday. He will likely only get into games in these types of situations or if a glut of injuries sweeps through the Atlanta front court.

Daye will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Daye last appeared with the Spurs averaging 4.0 points per game in 26 contests before being waived in January. He averaged just over 10 minutes a game in that span, and likely won't see much more playing time than that in Atlanta.

Daye was claimed off waivers by the Erie BayHawks, the D-League affiliate of the Orlando Magic.Daye spent the season with the San Antonio Spurs before they waived him January 17th. With 15 players already on the roster, the Magic would need to create space if they wanted to call him up. Even if a spot opens up via trade or waivers, their D-League All-Star Seth Curry would likely garner the first nod.

Daye will be waived by the Spurs, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Daye has been inserted into 26 games for the Spurs this season but is only averaging 10.3 minutes per contest. He's a prime candidate to land on another NBA team before the season is over, although he may have to earn his way by starting with a 10-day contract first. Regardless, it would be surprising if he worked his way into fantasy prominence this year.

Daye struggled as a starter Tuesday against Washington, scoring just five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) to go with two rebounds in just seven minutes of action.

Daye came crashing back to earth Tuesday with a brutal stat-line. He was coming off of a big game on Saturday where he had 22 points in 36 minutes, but was unable to sustain that pace. His playing time averages are a red flag and he's too inconsistent to be counted on in daily or standard leagues.

Daye made the start Saturday, with Marco Belinelli (groin) and Manu Ginobili (back) out, scoring 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 36 minutes.

It's safe to call this performance one out of the box. Daye did it once last season and the stars aligned for him to have a big performance again Saturday, but this is not the type of performance that makes you think that Daye will have prolonged value. He hadn't even gotten into a game for the last four tilts and his fantasy value is limited, to be kind.

Daye had 13 points (4-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and 11 rebounds in 26 minutes in the win over Minnesota on Friday.

Daye set season standards in points, rebounds, assists (three), and minutes. The Spurs had a big second half league, so Daye received extra minutes. The former Gonazaga Bulldog is hitting just 27.8 percent of his field goals.

Daye started Friday's game against the Suns and played some valuable minutes in the fourth quarter.

Daye started at power forward, while Tim Duncan slid over to center. However, the experiment hindered the Spurs' offense. Daye scored just six points (2-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-0 FT) in 19 minutes. Aron Baynes, Jeff Ayres and Boris Diaw all got minutes off the bench as well. Owners of any of those players, including Daye, should continue to monitor the minutes distribution.
