Kendrick Perkins C CLE 30 Days

Perkins was held to just two minutes of action for his second straight game Thursday, and picked up two fouls without scoring a point before being removed from the game.

Perkins has only been with the Cavaliers for a few days after they signed him following his trade from the Thunder to the Jazz. Perkins didn't play at all with the Jazz before being bought out by them. It's unlikely that Perkins plays any more than a minor bench role for the Cavaliers, and doesn't hold much fantasy value.

Perkins made his Cavalier debut with two points and two fouls in two minutes in the win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Perkins is just another big body off of the Cavalier bench. He likely will not take minutes away from Tristan Thompson. He could be a decent one-game rebounding flyer from time to time, depending on the Cavs' match up.

Perkins is hoping to make his Cleveland debut against Detroit on Tuesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.Perkins will most likely see time as a reserve behind starting center Timofey Mozgov during the final stretch of the season in Cleveland. His move should help the Cavaliers in their quest for a NBA title, but the change of scenery doesn't necessarily benefit Perkins from a fantasy perspective. Most importantly, Perkins may take time away from Tristan Thompson down the stretch as they come off the bench for backup minutes in the frontcourt.

Perkins has completed his buyout with the Jazz and decided to sign with the Cavaliers, Royce Young of ESPN reports.Perkins was traded from Oklahoma City to Utah on Thursday but never actually put on a Jazz jersey during his quick stint in Salt Lake City. Looking ahead, the veteran will bring a much-needed defensive stopper off the bench in Cleveland. He'll likely be slotted behind Timofey Mozgov while sharing minutes off the bench with Tristan Thompson. Although, Perkins struggles to produce in terms of fantasy and that will likely be the case yet again during his tenure in Cleveland.

Perkins is nearing a buyout with Utah and will decide where he signs Sunday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.The expected favorites to land Perkins are the Cavaliers and Clippers. Both of these teams are in need of a center for various reasons and the veteran will likely see time in the rotation of whichever team he ends up with. However, Perkins will continue to be a lackluster option in terms of fantasy as he's never proven otherwise during his tenured stint in the NBA.

Perkins will likely see an uptick in playing time in his return from a one-game suspension after Steven Adams required surgery to repair a broken hand Monday.

Mitch McGary played very well in the absence of Perkins on Sunday night after Adams suffered the injury, and it's possible that the Thunder will opt to push McGary into a larger share of the minutes at center since he brings more upside to the table.

Perkins has been suspended one game for initiating head-to-head contact with the Pelicans' Tyreke Evans on Friday night, USA Today reports.

Perkins' headbutt of Evans will cost him a game check, and the timing is pretty poor for Oklahoma City. The Thunder host the Clippers on Sunday. Steven Adams figures to take on a greater share of the minutes in Perkins' absence, and Serge Ibaka may be forced to help pick up the slack at center.
