Cody Zeller waived by Portland

Portland Trail Blazers center Cody Zeller has been waived by the team Tuesday night.

What It Means:

Zeller fractured his patella a couple months ago, and after initially trying to rehabilitate the injury, he underwent surgery on January 25. Now, as the Blazers are wheeling and dealing ahead of the trade deadline, they have decided to open up a roster spot by parting ways with Zeller.

In 27 games this season, Zeller averaged 5.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 12.8 FanDuel points.
