---The Washington Wizards waived center D'Or Fischer to reduce their roster to 18 players.
The 6-foot-11 Fischer, 32 and an undrafted free agent, has played in Europe since he came out of West Virginia in 2005. He signed with Washington on Sept. 28.
---The Denver Nuggets announced forward Reginald Becton and guard Kyle Fogg were waived to trim the roster to 16 players.
An undrafted free agent from Arizona, Fogg played in the NBA Developmental League last season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
