Analysis: It wasn't quite as impressive as his 11-for-18, 24-point performance on Tuesday against San Antonio in his first game since sitting out seven with a hyperextended left knee. However, it was still a solid performance that should be comforting for fantasy owners.
Feb. 18 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET4:34 GMT12:34 9:34 PM MST11:34 PM EST8:34 UAE05:3423:34 ET10:34 PM CT3:34 - Waiters has returned after missing seven games with a knee injury, giving the club a key component for its playoff push.

Jan. 5 9:31 PM PT10:31 PM MT11:31 PM CT12:31 AM ET5:31 GMT13:31 10:31 PM MST12:31 AM EST9:31 UAE06:310:31 ET11:31 PM CT3:31 - Waiters had 26 points Saturday in an 89-82 loss at Brooklyn.
Analysis: With Kyrie Irving out, expect Waiters to pad his stats so fantasy owners should take advantage.
Dec. 29 9:49 PM PT10:49 PM MT11:49 PM CT12:49 AM ET5:49 GMT13:49 10:49 PM MST12:49 AM EST9:49 UAE06:490:49 ET11:49 PM CT3:49 - Waiters wasn't quite as good in his second game back from injury, scoring 17 on 6-of-16 shooting in Saturday's loss at Boston.
Analysis: Waiters was much less efficient than his 20-point, 9-of-14 performance in Thursday's loss to Atlanta.
Dec. 20 2:54 PM PT3:54 PM MT4:54 PM CT5:54 PM ET22:54 GMT6:54 3:54 PM MST5:54 PM EST2:54 UAE (+1)23:5417:54 ET4:54 PM CT20:54 - Waiters was active Thursday night against Atlanta after missing three games because of tendinitis in his right wrist. Waiters said before the game that the wrist has been bothering him for two weeks, causing swelling and discomfort. He said he's still experiencing pain, but felt he could play after participating in shooting drills about an hour prior to the game.
Analysis: Waiters wore a pad to support the wrist. The second-year shooting guard is averaging 14.9 points. He hasn't played since Dec. 17 when he scored 25 points in a loss to Portland. Waiters, taken with the No. 4 pick in the 2012 draft, has been coming off the bench for the last month since C.J. Miles was moved into the starting lineup.

Analysis: Waiters, who had five points in the previous game, remains too inconsistent to be a regular fantasy contributor at this point.
Nov. 30 9:48 PM PT10:48 PM MT11:48 PM CT12:48 AM ET5:48 GMT13:48 10:48 PM MST12:48 AM EST9:48 UAE06:480:48 ET11:48 PM CT3:48 - Waiters scored 21 points Friday against Boston, but was just 7 of 18 from the field.
Analysis: Waiters is averaging 14.4 points per game, but he's requiring 12.9 field-goal attempts to do so. He's not the most efficient fantasy option with a 39.8 field-goal percentage and an even assist-turnover ratio.
Nov. 28 9:43 PM PT10:43 PM MT11:43 PM CT12:43 AM ET5:43 GMT13:43 10:43 PM MST12:43 AM EST9:43 UAE06:430:43 ET11:43 PM CT3:43 - Waiters scored a season high-tying 24 points off the bench in Wednesday's 95-84 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Waiters, who missed the past two games with flu-like symptoms, said Monday that he did not get into a physical confrontation with anyone last week when the Cavaliers had a meeting following a 29-point road loss in Minnesota. Reports of a possible altercation surfaced over the weekend. They were fueled by Waiters' absence from games against Charlotte and Washington as well as All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving's black eye and broken nose.
