Dalembert was arrested and charged with battery on Sunday, Sportando reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert reportedly struck both his girlfriend and her cousin in an incident regarding their children. However, with the legal process just beginning, we won't speculate on whether he's guilty or not. Once the legal ramifications are released, we should get a better indication on Dalembert's availability for the future. Dalembert was waived by the Mavericks in October of 2015 and failed to receive any other interest last season. This last incident will only further decimate his chances of finding himself on an NBA roster, so it appears his NBA days could be nearing a close.

Dalembert was waived by Dallas Saturday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert was signed to the Mavericks under a minimum guaranteed contract, but unfortunately came in to camp out of shape. At 34 years old, this could potentially be the last stop for the veteran who played 32 games for the Knicks last season. Dallas brought in Zaza Pachulia and Javale McGee during the off-season. They'll both likely handle most of the load at the center position this season.

Dalembert (knee) won't play in Friday's preseason contest against the Bulls, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert has sat out of the past two exhibition games and will sit out again with knee soreness. It's unlikely that this injury will keep him out of the Mavericks' first regular season game next Wednesday against the Suns, because he's already played through this injury previously in the preseason.

Dalembert (knee) will not play in Wednesday's exhibition game against the Suns, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears Dalembert continues to experience soreness in the strained left knee, and will be held out of the Mavs' preseason tilt Wednesday. It doesn't sound likely that this injury will keep him from being ready for the start of the regular season, when he'll provide bench minutes behind starting center Zaza Pachulia.

Dalembert missed Monday's preseason game against the Cavaliers with a left knee injury, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert had played in the Mavs' previous two preseason contests after returning from a knee issue, but it appears he may be experiencing some additional soreness. His status remains in question for Wednesday's exhibition tilt with the Suns.

Dalembert posted two points (1-2 FG), five rebounds, and a block over 10 minutes in Friday's 91-84 loss to the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert played his second consecutive contest after having reported swelling in his knee and missing practice Oct. 9. The veteran center will provide minutes off the bench in support of starter Zaza Pachulia in the 2015-16 campaign, and is expected to provide similar lines, with some additional minutes and scoring, to the one he posted Friday.

Dalembert did not practice Friday due to swelling in his left knee, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The issue doesn't appear to be anything serious, but it may be a byproduct of Dalembert showing up to camp out of shape. The veteran will compete with Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee for the starting center spot this season.

Dalembert was criticized by coach Rick Carlisle for his lack of conditioning, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalembert showing up to camp out of shape is not exactly unexpected, but it's a disappointing development for a player who has a chance to start at center for Dallas this season. After the Mavs lost out on DeAndre Jordan, they brought in Dalembert and Zaza Pachulia to solidify the position. Neither player inspires a ton of hope, but both players could have fantasy value, provided their respective minutes loads allow it.

Dalembert cleared waivers Thursday and is free to sign with any team, Jeff Zillgit of USA Today Sports reports.

Dalembert was waived by the Knicks on Monday, but the 33-year-old figures to draw interest from contending teams in need of a veteran big man.

Dalembert (ankle) was waived by the Knicks on Monday, ESPN.com reports.

Prior to missing the Knicks' last four games due to a sprained ankle, Dalembert was a regular in the frontcourt rotation, averaging four points (on 44 percent shooting), 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, and 0.9 assists in 17 minutes. The 33-year-old is clearly entering the twilight of his career, but there's no question that he'll find a home on the open market, especially due to his continued defensive presence.
