So maybe worthless is a bit harsh. Every player has some value no matter how bad they are or how little they contribute on the court.
Some guys may be a good locker room leader, a good cheerleader from the side or just be there to practice against the team's All-Star.
Whatever the reason for these guys hanging around the league, it is not always obvious, and fans are often frustrated with what they see each night.
The following list is of players whose value is not as apparent as others and who are not exactly setting the NBA on fire with their on-court statistics.
Some of these players are new to the league and still fighting for playing time, some are not living up to big contracts that they signed several seasons ago and some are simply past their prime and trying to hold on to their careers as long as they possibly can.
Unfortunately, some have suffered injuries that have altered their careers and have decreased their value significantly.
Not that I could play any better and not to take anything away from the hard work these guys have put in, but these are the players we are often not sure why they have a job in the NBA.
Players are not ranked and are in no particular order.
