Jan Vesely SF DEN 5 Months

Jan Vesely is expected to fly to Istanbul, Turkey this week to have his physical.

He signed a deal with Fenerbah‡e šlker and won't be in the NBA this season. Vesely was a disaster for much of his career as one of the worst players at the free throw line.

Jan Vesely will sign with Fenerbah‡e šlker in the Euroleague.

It's not a surprise after he really struggled in his first three seasons in the NBA. Vesely will forever be linked to being selected over Kawhi Leonard, who was the heavy favorite to go sixth in the draft 2011 draft. Vesely shot just 33.9 percent from the line in his career.

Jan Vesely played 23 minutes in his return from a rib injury on Friday with five points, six boards and three blocks in 23 minutes.

In true Jan fashion, he shot 1-of-4 from the line tonight. If it wasn't for the woeful free throw shooting, Vesely would be in the radar in standard leagues. If you don't care about that category, he is a decent option and could see minutes in the mid 20s.

Jan Vesely will play against the Spurs on Friday night.

He was listed as doubtful and now he's going to play. Vesely was expected to see the biggest bump in playing time due to J.J. Hickson's knee injury, so he could get around 20 minutes per game. Still, his free throw shooting is enough to dissuade almost any fantasy owner in a standard-style league.

Jan Vesely (ribs) is listed as doubtful to face the Spurs on Friday.

There was some optimism for him playing, but the reevaluation before Friday's shootaround must not have went well. Vesely isn't really a fantasy option due to his woeful free throw shooting, so he can be left on the wire.

Jan Vesely (bruised ribs) practiced on Thursday and coach Brian Shaw hopes to have him available for Friday's rematch with the Spurs.

He was a game-time decision on Wednesday and it sounds like he's closer to 'probable' than 'doubtful'. Unfortunately, nothing about Vesely's role or production this season suggests he'll be a viable fantasy option even with J.J. Hickson (knee) done for the year.

Jan Vesely (ribs) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

There was a report earlier today that Vesely would sit this one out due to his rib injury over the weekend, so he is a better bet to be inactive. He sat out on Monday, but did play 15 minutes on Sunday and figures to be in the rotation with J.J. Hickson (knee) out for the season. You are probably better at shooting free throws than Jan, so he can remain on the wire in standard-type leagues.

Jan Vesely (bruised ribs) won't play vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, though he hopes to return to action on Friday.

Vesely just gained a foothold in the rotation thanks to J.J. Hickson's season-ending surgery, but he promptly found himself also on the sidelines. Even when he's fully healthy, Vesely's lousy FT percentage and limited versatility make him a non-starter in fantasy leagues.

Jan Vesely (ribs) does not have a timetable and could return at any point.

Vesely became a de facto member of the Nuggets' rotation after J.J. Hickson's season-ending knee injury, but is now out nursing bruised ribs suffered during Sunday's win over the Wizards. The Nuggets have said there is no timetable for Vesely's return, but that he could return at any point. We'll consider him day-to-day until further news is available, but Vesely's fantasy value is extremely limited at this point and owners should be able to find more productive players on waivers.

Jan Vesely joined the Nuggets' rotation on Sunday due to J.J. Hickson's season-ending knee injury, but Vesely's night ended early due to a rib injury.

Regardless of his status for Monday's game, Vesely's season-long 27.9 percent shooting at the FT line is reason enough to avoid him in eight-cat and nine-cat leagues. That's an even bigger problem since more than 85 percent of his shot attempts come from within eight feet of the hoop, leading to frequent fouls which he can't convert at the line. The waiver wire is his permanent home.
