Orton is expected to sign with the Wizards, CSN Washington reports.

Orton will face an uphill battle to make the team out of training camp, as the Wizards already improved their frontcourt depth by signing DeJuan Blair and Kris Humphries to guaranteed contracts. Orton played with the Wizards' team in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging just 4.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.2 blocks over 16.4 minutes in five games.

Daniel Orton is playing for the Wizards in the Las Vegas Summer League, but he didn't practice on Sunday and is listed as day-to-day.

It's unclear what's wrong with Orton, but he may simply be out of shape -- in his only game in Vegas he scored four points, turned the ball over four times and committed six personal fouls in 17 minutes. Whether or not he earns a guaranteed NBA contract this season, Orton isn't worth fantasy owners' attention.

Sixers waive C Daniel Orton.

Orton averaged 3.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 22 games this year. He may earn a few more 10-day contracts this season but he belongs in the fantasy FA pool.

Daniel Orton will be suspended one game for his altercation in Saturday's game against the Blazers.

Orton won't play on Monday against the Nets. He's played just 4.1 minutes per game in December and is hanging on by a thread on the thin Philly roster.

76ers big man Daniel Orton may be suspended by the league for throwing an elbow at Meyers Leonard during an on-court scuffle on Saturday.

Orton was ejected with a Flagrant-2 foul and it would be surprising if the NBA doesn't punish him since his elbow was directed at Leonard's head. Even if he is suspended, it shouldn't make any impact for fantasy owners.

76ers big man Daniel Orton picked up a DNP-CD on Friday after starting the Sixers' previous two games.

His temporary surge into the starting lineup came with Spencer Hawes (knee) and Thaddeus Young (personal) both unavailable, and anyone who picked him up should obviously cut him. Asked about Orton's DNP, coach Brett Brown responded, "Part of the NBA. You've got so many bigs. It's horses for courses, depending on who you're playing."

Daniel Orton started Saturday's game and posted his first double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds in 36 minutes.

Orton also swatted two shots, but it's telling that this was his best line of the season. Once Spencer Hawes (knee) and Thaddeus Young (personal) return, Orton will be back on the fantasy scrap heap as a middling backup big man.

Daniel Orton scored four points on 1-of-3 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes on Friday against the Bucks.

Orton started his second straight game with Thad Young out and this low-end line would only really serve deeper leagues, so there's no reason to pay Orton much fantasy attention yet.

Daniel Orton started at power forward for the Sixers on Wednesday and had six points, six rebounds and a block in 17 minutes.

The fact he's still in the league, let alone starting for someone, is pretty impressive, but he has no fantasy value unless Thaddeus Young (personal) happens to miss several games. And even then, it's doubtful that you'd want to own Orton.

Daniel Orton (knee) did not play in Monday's game against the Spurs.

He was available to play, but never saw any game action and may be out of the rotation. Move along, there's nothing to see here.
