Top Cameron Payne News

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Hits for 16 off bench

    Payne registered 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one steal across 20 minutes off the bench during Friday's 104-97 victory over Cleveland.

    Kyle Lowry isn't yet ready to play on back-to-back nights, so Payne saw an elevated role again behind Tyrese Maxey in the Sixers' backcourt. Payne's scored at least 15 points in three of the last six games, but he also played only nine minutes in Lowry's debut for Philly on Thursday. Payne can still be useful as a bargain DFS option, but only when Lowry is getting the night off.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Sparkplug off bench

    Payne had 15 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds and four assists over 24 minutes during Monday's 123-121 victory over Cleveland.

    Payne, platoon center Mo Bamba and rookie Ricky Council were the only players to see meaningful minutes off Philadelphia's bench, with the 76ers utilizing an eight-man rotation Monday. Payne stepped up and contributed offensively, but he's unlikely to deliver consistent sixth-man production moving forward.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Coming off bench

    Payne will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Wizards, Gina Mizell of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    This is an expected move with Tyrese Maxey (illness) back in the lineup. Payne stepped up in a big way in his debut Friday against the Hawks, producing 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals across 36 minutes.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Drops season-high 20 points

    Payne recorded 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's 127-121 loss to the Hawks.

    Payne slid straight into the starting lineup Friday following his trade from Milwaukee. With the 76ers down on troops, Payne stepped into a sizeable role, scoring a season-high 20 points. Although he won't be this good moving forward, he is worth a look, even in 12-team leagues, as long as Philadelphia is running a thin backcourt lineup.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Starting in team debut

    Payne is starting Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Payne is making his first appearance with his new team Friday and will be part of the starting lineup since Tyrese Maxey (illness) has been ruled out. Coach Nick Nurse suggested before Friday's game that Payne could see considerable playing time against the Hawks.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Set to make team debut Friday

    Payne (recently traded) is available for Friday's game against Atlanta, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Payne was initially ruled out for Friday's matchup since his trade was still pending, but he's been cleared to make his team debut in the first half of a back-to-back set. Tyrese Maxey (illness) is questionable for Friday's game, and Payne could see a fairly sizable role against the Hawks if Maxey is ruled out.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Won't suit up Friday

    Payne (trade pending) is out for Friday's game versus the Hawks.

    The 76ers acquired Payne from the Bucks on Thursday, but he'll get some extra time to get acclimated to his new organization before making his debut. Given that he hasn't had a chance to practice with the 76ers and Friday's contest marks the front end of a back-to-back set, Payne could remain out for Saturday's matchup with the Wizards. On a positive note, Payne no longer appears to be bothered by a hyperextended knee, which resulted in him being listed as probable on the Bucks' injury report prior to the trade being announced.

  • 76ers' Cameron Payne: Traded to Philadelphia

    Payne (knee) was traded from the Bucks to the 76ers along with a 2027 second-round pick Thursday in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Payne joined the Bucks on a one-year deal ahead of the 2023-24 campaign and saw decreased production across the board, averaging 6.2 points, 2.3 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 14.9 minutes per game over 47 appearances with the club. He'll likely serve as the primary backup at point guard behind Tyrese Maxey on a team that has been active ahead of the trade deadline following Joel Embiid's (knee) injury.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Considered probable

    Payne is probable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves due to left knee hyperextension.

    With Damian Lillard (ankle) sidelined, Payne played an increased role during Tuesday's loss to the Suns, posting 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 23 minutes. Lillard is questionable for Thursday, so the Bucks' backcourt availability is a key storyline to watch for DFS players.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Scores 11 points in loss

    Payne registered 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 loss to Phoenix.

    The Bucks were missing Damian Lillard (ankle), but Pat Connaughton drew the start at point guard. Payne still saw a sizable workload off the bench, and more minutes could trickle down his way if Khris Middleton (ankle) is forced to miss time after picking up an injury Tuesday.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Delivers nice performance off bench

    Payne registered 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and two steals over 18 minutes during Saturday's 141-117 win over the Pelicans.

    With the Bucks building a big lead by the end of the third quarter, starting point guard Damian Lillard sat out the entire final period, allowing Payne to see more run than usual. Payne supplied some hot shooting off the bench and is now knocking down 40.8 percent of his 2.9 three-pointers per game across 42 appearances. Even so, he remains a liability on the defensive end, which lessens the possibility of him receiving extended playing time alongside Lillard, who also struggles defensively.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Available against Boston

    Payne (concussion) is available for Thursday's game against the Celtics, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

    Payne was unavailable Monday against the Jazz due to the league's concussion protocols, but he was probable for Thursday's matchup and has officially been cleared to suit up. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 3.6 points and 1.8 assists in 10.2 minutes per game.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Expected to play against Boston

    Payne (concussion) is deemed probable for Thursday's game versus the Celtics.

    Payne missed Monday's game versus the Jazz while in concussion protocols but has since returned to practice and is expected to suit up against Boston on Thursday. If he's further upgraded to available, Payne should continue to serve as Milwaukee's backup point guard behind Damian Lillard.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Practices Wednesday

    Coach Adrian Griffin said Payne (concussion) practiced Wednesday, but his status for Thursday's game against the Celtics is to be determined, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

    Payne missed Monday's loss to Utah due to a concussion, but he appears to be progressing well. His status for Thursday's matchup should surface Wednesday afternoon, but Griffin said the team needs to see how Payne feels Thursday morning, so the backup point guard will presumably be a game-time decision.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Won't play Monday

    Payne has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Jazz due to concussion protocols.

    The Bucks will be shorthanded in the backcourt during Monday's matchup, as Damian Lillard (personal) has also been ruled out. Payne's next opportunity to suit up will be Thursday against Boston, while AJ Green, MarJon Beauchamp and Andre Jackson could see increased run Monday.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Perfect from charity stripe

    Payne recorded five points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound and four assists in 15 minutes during Thursday's 125-121 win over the Spurs.

    Payne scored all five of his points from the free-throw line Thursday, thanks to a season high in attempts. The 29-year-old guard also racked up four assists without recording a single turnover. Payne continues to serve as Milwaukee's backup point guard to Damian Lillard.

  • Bucks' Cameron Payne: Ties season-high mark in win

    Payne accumulated 18 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, six assists and two steals across 23 minutes during Wednesday's 144-122 win over the Nets.

    Payne posted his ninth game with 10 or more points this season, and he matched his best scoring mark of the campaign while also notching season-best figures in rebounds, assists and steals. Even though Payne can deliver strong performances off the bench from time to time, his role in the rotation and the inconsistencies of this role suggest he's better off on the waiver wire than in your fantasy lineup.
