  • Warriors' Usman Garuba: Not on injury report

    Garuba (finger) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Garuba missed the last four games due to a right finger dislocation, but it appears as though he'll suit up Friday. However, his availability shouldn't impact the Warriors' rotation.

  • Warriors' Usman Garuba: Sitting out with dislocated finger

    Garuba has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Kings due to a right finger dislocation.

    One of Golden State's three two-way players, Garuba has yet to play at the NBA level this season but appears to have sustained the injury during his three-minute appearance Monday in G League Santa Cruz Warriors' 123-99 loss to the Ontario Clippers. Garuba won't be available off the bench for the NBA club Tuesday and could be at risk of missing additional contests due to the injury.

  • Warriors' Usman Garuba: Shoots efficiently

    Garuba logged 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 22 minutes of Saturday's 129-115 win over the Stars.

    Santa Cruz was missing Trayce Jackson-Davis because he was recalled to Golden State, so Garuba got an extended look Saturday and made the most of it. He's known as a defensive specialist, so to see Garuba play this well on the offensive end is very encouraging.

  • Warriors' Usman Garuba: Inks two-way deal with Golden State

    The Warriors signed Garuba to a two-way contract Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Garuba will split time between the NBA and G League for the Warriors in 2023-24. The 21-year-old forward averaged 3.0 points and 4.1 rebounds in 12.9 minutes across 75 appearances for Houston last year.

  • Usman Garuba: Cut by Oklahoma City

    Garuba was waived by the Thunder on Monday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Garuba was traded from Houston to Atlanta in early July before being re-routed to Oklahoma City a week later. However, he wasn't able to maintain a roster spot with the Thunder and will now seek out another opportunity ahead of training camp. In his second NBA season in 2022-23, Garuba appeared in 75 games for the Rockets and averaged 3.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 12.9 minutes per contest.

  • Thunder's Usman Garuba: Re-directed to OKC

    The Hawks traded Garuba, TyTy Washington, Rudy Gay and a second-round pick to the Thunder in exchange for Patty Mills on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Garuba and Washington were both traded to Atlanta last week but will now head to Oklahoma City. Garuba will likely compete for a depth role in the Thunder's frontcourt.

  • Hawks' Usman Garuba: Dealt to Atlanta

    The Rockets traded Garuba, TyTy Washington and draft compensation to the Hawks in exchange for the draft rights to Alpha Kaba on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Garuba will have an opportunity to compete for a depth role in Atlanta's frontcourt. The 21-year-old forward averaged 3.0 points and 4.1 rebounds in 12.9 minutes across 75 games last year.

  • Rockets' Usman Garuba: Muted role again Friday

    Garuba finished with two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one block over nine minutes during Friday's 112-109 win over the Hornets.

    Garuba barely saw the court in the victory, continuing what has been an underwhelming season. Despite head coach Stephen Silas running some awful rotations at times, Garuba has failed to take advantage of his limited opportunities. While Garuba has youth on his side, it's hard to see him being anything more than a minor piece, at least for the foreseeable future.

  • Rockets' Usman Garuba: Plays 19 minutes in loss

    Garuba amassed seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds over 19 minutes during Monday's 121-108 loss to Golden State.

    With Alperen Sengun (illness) sidelined, Garuba played his most minutes since Jan. 28, but he still struggled to make a significant impact. Across 11 March appearances, the second-year big man is averaging 3.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 11.4 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Usman Garuba: Nails two straight triples late

    Garuba contributed six points (2-2 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 12 minutes during Monday's 111-109 win over the Celtics.

    With Alperen Sengun sitting out (groin), the Rockets went small for the majority of Monday's game, but Garuba was able to make an impact in minimal minutes by knocking down two shots in a row from deep in the middle of the fourth quarter. It gave Houston an eight-point cushion after a surging Boston team was making a comeback. The young big also put up some decent rebounding and assist numbers in his short time on the court. It's an atypical amount of production from him though, as he also went scoreless over his last three contests prior to Monday's win.

  • Rockets' Usman Garuba: Makes most of limited minutes

    Garuba totaled 11 points (3-3 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist across nine minutes during Saturday's 122-110 win over the Spurs.

    Garuba needed just nine minutes to make an impact off the bench, but he entered the action when the game was already decided and is not expected to play a significant role going forward. Even though his performance looks decent at first glance, he's not going to produce at this rate -- or with this efficiency -- in Houston's upcoming contests.

  • Rockets' Usman Garuba: Limited minutes again

    Garuba produced five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two steals across nine minutes during Monday's 123-104 loss to Philadelphia.

    Garuba hasn't been a consistent part of the rotation and it's mainly because Kenyon Martin is standing in his way. Garuba will likely get an opportunity at some point down the stretch, but for now minutes will be hard to come by.
