    Update: McRae averaged 24.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across seven Las Vegas Summer League games en route to First Team All-Summer League honors.

    Analysis: McRae led all players who participated in at least three games in scoring, though he shot just 37.6 percent from the floor and 29.4 percent from three. The former Tennessee standout held only a minor role for the reigning champions during the NBA season, but the loss of Matthew Dellavedova could mean a slight increase in minutes off the bench next season.

    Update: McRae (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's 112-97 Game 5 win over the Warriors.

    Analysis: McRae has only played in two of the Cavs' 17 postseason games, with both of his appearances coming in garbage time. With the team back to full health following Kevin Love's return from a concussion in Game 4, McRae figures to remain inactive for the rest of the series.

    Update: McRae (coach's decision) was inactive for Sunday's 100-99 Game 4 win over the Hawks.

    Analysis: McRae was the star of the Cavs' ultimately meaningless regular season finale back on April 13, scoring a career-high 36 points in 47 minutes. The large workload was a result of the Cavs resting most of their regular rotation members for the playoffs, so it's come as little surprise that McRae's role has evaporated entirely since then. He's appeared in only one of the team's eight playoff games, logging one minute of court time.

    Update: McRae scored a career-high 36 points (14-29 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT) to go with seven assists and four rebounds over 47 minutes in a 112-110 overtime loss to the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Analysis: DFS players who selected McRae for their lineups hit pay dirt, as the Cavs' offense ran through the 25-year-old, who in addition to his huge scoring total, hit a clutch trey to send the game to overtime. With coach Tyronn Lue resting LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, and Mo Williams, McRae was able to showcase his offensive capabilities. McRae, who scored 61 points in a D-League game earlier this season, impressed the Cavs enough prior to Wednesday's scoring outburst to earn himself a multi-year contract, which puts him on solid ground for a roster spot heading into 2016-17. However, he'll likely remain mostly a non-factor off the bench for the Cavs during their upcoming playoff run, as Lue figures to lean heavily on his more established players.

    Update: McRae will draw the start in Wednesday's season finale versus the Pistons, Pistons' radio announcer Mark Champion reports.

    Analysis: McRae was just recalled from the D-Lague, and will immediately draw the start for the Cavaliers. Cleveland is resting a majority of their regular rotational players, so McRae should see a decent workload.

    Update: McRae was recalled from the D-League's Canton Charge on Wednesday.

    Analysis: McRae will be available for the Cavs' regular-season finale Wednesday against the Pistons, and should be in line for one of his largest minutes loads to date with the team resting several of its regulars. Once the postseason begins, however, McRae is unlikely to see the floor outside of garbage time.

    Update: McRae was assigned to the Canton Charge of the D-League on Tuesday.

    Analysis: McRae will play for the Charge as they take on the Sioux Falls Skyforce in Game 1 of the D-League's Eastern Conference Finals. He'll probably return to the Cavs in advance of Wednesday's regular season finale against the Pistons, especially if the team opts to rest multiple regulars with the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference locked up.

    Update: McRae was recalled from the D-League's Canton Charge on Monday.

    Analysis: McRae was sent back down to Canton earlier Monday, but with the recent call-up he'll be available for the Cavaliers' upcoming game against the Hawks. If the Cavs elect to rest several players with the NBA postseason looming in the near future, McRae could see more minutes than usual, but he still doesn't hold much fantasy value.

    Update: McRae was assigned to the D-League's Canton Charge on Monday.

    Analysis: McRae will likely remain with the Charge through the week, as the team begins its Eastern Conference Finals series against the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Monday night in the second round of the D-League playoffs. Expect McRae to be back with the Cavs when the NBA postseason gets underway Saturday.

    Update: McRae had two points (1-1 FG) and one assist in six minutes during the Cavaliers' 109-80 win against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Analysis: McRae continues to see the floor every other game for the Cavaliers, appearing in five of the last 10 games. He typically only appears in blowouts, which Tuesday's matchup against the Bucks was. However, McRae could get a chance to play a few more minutes down the stretch if the Cavaliers begin resting players in preparation for the playoffs.

    Update: McRae will remain with the Cavaliers for the rest of the season, Cleveland.com's Chris Haynes reports.

    Analysis: McRae signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers at the end of last month, and with it set to expire Wednesday, the team has already made the call to keep the 24-year-old around for the remainder of the campaign. The rookie has appeared sparingly in three games for the Cavs, and he's highly unlikely to be more than a practice player down the stretch.

    Update: McRae signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers on Sunday.

    Analysis: After losing out in the Joe Johnson sweepstakes, the Cavaliers decided to fill their open roster spot by bringing aboard McRae, who previously enjoyed a seven-game stint with the Suns earlier this season in which he averaged 5.3 points and 1.4 assists over 11.7 minutes. McRae showed some dynamic scoring ability with the D-League's Delaware 87ers, but he's expected to play a deep bench role on a Cavs squad that isn't short on talent.

    Update: McRae's second 10-day contract will expire after Friday's game against the Rockets, the Arizona Republic reports.

    Analysis: McRae, who has appeared in six games for the Suns since signing his first 10-day deal back at the end of January, will be allowed to play Friday, but with his contract set to expire after the game, the Suns will have to decide whether to sign him for the remainder of the year or release him back to the D-League. The Suns haven't commented on their plans and likely won't make a decision until after Thursday's trade deadline has passed.

    Update: McRae will sign a second 10-day contract with the Suns, Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reports.

    Analysis: McRae has played in five games with the Suns since joining on his first 10-day contract, finishing with averages of 5.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists over 13 minutes. With Ronnie Price (foot) and Brandon Knight (groin) both out with injuries, McRae offers some much needed depth in the backcourt. Following the conclusion of his second 10-day contract, the Suns will either have to release him or sign him for the rest of the season.

    Injury: NO

    Update: McRae managed 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during the Suns' 102-84 loss to the Knicks on Friday.

    Analysis: McRae received a 10-day contract from the Suns on Thursday after scoring a D-League record 61 points for the Delaware 87ers. Given his solid NBA debut performance and the health of the team's backcourt, McRae will likely be afforded plenty of opportunities in the near future.

    Update: McRae will sign a 10-day contract with the Suns on Thursday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

    Analysis: McRae's signing comes on the heels of his 61-point effort -- a D-League record -- for the Delaware 87ers on Tuesday afternoon against the Canton Charge. Over 28 games with Delaware this season, McRae was averaging 23.1 points, 5.2 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 1.7 three-pointers across 35.5 minutes. He'll give the banged-up Suns some depth at shooting guard behind Devin Booker.
