Description

For many players the "uniform_number" atribute of the "Roster" method shows a -1. For example, in the New York Knicks's roster there are 6 players with -1: Quincy Acy, Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway, Travis Outlaw, Jason Smith and Travis Wear. My guess is that new players have -1, but there is Pau Gasol (new in Chicago Bulls's roster) with a correct number. Thank you, Arián.

Closing Comment

Updated documentation at /api/objects/player to clarify why some players have -1 for their uniform number. If a player was assigned a number, but is still listed as -1 on xmlstats, please open another issue.

Yes, a "-1" value means the player had not been officially assigned a number at the time when the data was last updated. I'll update the documentation to clarify that.
