Description: Thunder shooting guard Dion Waiters will play against the Mavericks on Wednesday according to the Oklahoman.
Insight: Waiters, however, hasn't been good lately. He shot just 41.7 percent from the field and 62.9 percent at the line in March.
 
3/30/2015 10:42:00 AM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Dion Waiters will have a sore foot checked out when the team returns to Oklahoma City, according to beat writer Royce Young.
Insight: Waiters has been playing through the pain and put up 18 points on 20 shots Sunday night. His 12.7 ppg in March is the highest of the season and he's been a source for scoring on a team that has lost two big-time offensive weapons in Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka.
 
3/20/2015 10:40:00 PM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Dion Waiters scored 26 points in the, 123-115, victory over the Hawks on Friday.
Insight: Waiters was great, going 11-for-18 from the field and 2-of-6 from downtown. He also had three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal. The 26 points tied a season-high from back in December.
 
3/4/2015 11:09:00 PM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Dion Waiters had a double-double off the bench as Oklahoma City beat Philadelphia, 123-118, on Wednesday.
Insight: Besides Russell Westbrook, who scored 49 points, the Thunder starting five was pathetic, scoring just 12 points. Waiters scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds with three assists. Kevin Durant cannot return soon enough.
 
2/2/2015 10:34:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters started in place of the injured Kevin Durant and scored 24 points.
Insight: Waiters played a team-high 41 minutes, shooting 9-of-15 from the field. Waiters also had four rebounds, an assist and a steal.
 
1/5/2015 9:53:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters is going to be traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Waiters is reportedly a part of a three-team trade where Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith would head to Cleveland and Lance Thomas from Oklahoma City along with Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk from Cleveland would head to the Knicks. Although this is ground-breaking, it likely hurts Dion Waiters fantasy stock as Waiters will likely be a role player with the Thunder.
 
12/21/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters had a nice game off the bench on Sunday.
Insight: He went 9-of-16 from the field, 1-of-1 from the line, and 2-of-5 from beyond the arc. Waiters also had two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and four turnovers. He is too inconsistent to be a relevant fantasy option.
 
12/15/2014 4:10:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters left Friday's game with a strained abdominal, but is probable for Monday's game against Charlotte.
Insight: Waiters is averaging 9.4 ppg but doesn't help out in any other categories leaving him with limited fantasy value.
 
12/12/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters left Friday's game with abdominal pain.
Insight: He will no return, as he went to hospital to get checked out. Hopefully everything is okay with Waiters.
 
12/8/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters came off the bench and scored a team-high 26 points on Monday versus the Nets.
Insight: Waiters led the team with 21 shot attempts and made 11 of them. He only shot 1-for-6 from the 3-point line, but still led the team in scoring. Waiters also had four assists, two steals, one block and one rebound.
 
11/13/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters (back) is being listed as probable for Friday's game versus Boston.
Insight: He went through a full practice on Thursday, and return to his sixth-man role on Friday night.
 
11/10/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.
Insight: Shawn Marion will get additional minutes in the starting lineup. Rookie Joe Harris and veteran Mike Miller will see a bump in playing times as well.
 
10/22/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters will have little fantasy value this season.
Insight: Waiters should play just as many minutes as he did last season, but with the new 'big three' in Cleveland, Waiters is the odd man out. He should be a viable contributor for the Cavaliers, but not likely to make a fantasy impact.
 
Hot4/11/2014 11:00:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers SG Dion Waiters had 23 points, four assists and five steals Friday at Milwaukee.
Insight: It has been the Dion Waiters show since Kyrie Irving's injury opened up a starting spot for him. Waiters has remained in the starting five next to Irving since he returned and averaged 21.9 ppg over his last 13 games.
 
Hot4/2/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Kyrie Irving's return to the lineup from an eight-game absence Wednesday didn't slow down Dion Waiters.
Insight: Waiters had 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting (3-3 3PT) and three assists in 34 minutes after averaging 39.9 minutes, 22 points and 5.1 assists per game with Irving out of the lineup with a biceps strain. Jarrett Jack moved to the bench Wednesday but the Cavs still found 30 minutes for him.
 
Hot3/25/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters stayed hot with 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting Tuesday in a win against Toronto.
Insight: He also had seven assists and two blocked shots. Waiters has averaged 23.8 ppg, 6.4 apg and 3.6 rpg since Kyrie Irving went down with a biceps injury earlier this month.
 
Hot3/22/2014 10:25:00 PM
Description: Cleveland shooting guard Dion Waiters had 26 points, eight assists and four rebounds in 40 minutes Saturday against the Rockets.
Insight: With Kyrie Irving out, Waiters is getting a chance to flex his muscles as the team's top ballhandler. He has averaged 17.9 points and 4.0 assists his last 14 games, including 24.3 ppg and 7.7 apg as the starter the last three.
 
3/20/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Cleveland shooting guard Dion Waiters scored a team-high 30 points in Thursday's loss to OKC.
Insight: That's a season-high for Waiters and only three points off his career-high. Waiters, who alternates between starting and coming off the bench, drew the start on Thursday. In 11 starts, he's averaging 15.2 ppg compared to 14.7 ppg in 46 games as a reserve. We'll see what head coach Mike Brown decides to do with him Saturday against Houston.
 
3/20/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters appeared to injure his right hip late in Tuesday's game and is questionable for Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.
Insight: Waiters had 17 points, a career-high 11 assists and four rebounds in 41 minutes Tuesday against the Heat, however, he injured his right hip to go along with an already sore knee and back. If he can play he could see big minutes with all the injuries to Cleveland's lineup.
 
Hot3/18/2014 10:48:00 PM
Description: Cavs guard Dion Waiters had 17 points, a career-high 11 assists and four rebounds in 41 minutes Tuesday against the Heat. However, he appeared to injure his right hip when he was sandwiched between LeBron James and Udonis Haslem late in the fourth.
Insight: Kyrie Irving will miss two weeks with a biceps injury, allowing Waiters to move into the starting lineup and share ballhandling duties with Jarrett Jack. Waiters attempted 19 field goals Tuesday and has averaged 15.9 ppg over his last seven contests. His previous career high for assists in a game was eight, which he bested by three. The Cavs can ill afford to see him join Irving on the injury list.
