Jamaal Tinsley was not with the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

Considering the NBA's deadline to waive players on nonguaranteed contracts, like Tinsley, was at 4 p.m. MT, some might have gotten the wrong impression.

Tinsley remained in New York to deal with a family matter of a non-emergency nature, but he is expected to rejoin the Jazz before Friday's game against Oklahoma City.

In other words — less than a week after his 13-assist night in Golden State — Tinsley made the final cut.
