  • Pau Gasol plays just 18 minutes vs. GSW
    Pau Gasol played just 18 minutes and finished with two points, four rebounds and one assist on 1-of-4 shooting in Tuesday's easy win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors didn't really use center Zaza Pachulia much and the Spurs were quite dominant without Gasol on the floor. He'll be better than this on most nights, so don't do anything crazy with Pau. Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Aldridge drops 26 & 14 in easy win over GSW
    LaMarcus Aldridge hit 10-of-20 shots for 26 points and 14 rebounds, and added a 3-pointer and a steal in Tuesday's surprisingly easy 129-100 win at Oracle Arena.

    Advice: Aldridge had his way with the Warriors tonight and looked spry. He's primed for a big season, especially given that Tim Duncan is retired. Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Boris Diaw held to two points in loss to POR
    Boris Diaw disappointed in a start at power forward vs. the Blazers on Tuesday, scoring two points on 1-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: Not many forwards can play 32 minutes and finish with just three rebounds, but it was that kind of night for Diaw. He looked a step too slow and also missed all three of his triples. It sounds like Derrick Favors (knee) is progressing, but no one knows for sure. Even with the uncertainty, it's better to leave Diaw on the wire. Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Rudy Gobert double-doubles with two blocks
    Rudy Gobert double-doubled in Tuesday's loss to the Blazers, scoring 12 points with 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He had his double-double locked up in the third quarter and most importantly, he hit 4-of-4 from the free throw line. Gobert's health was an issue last season, but the bounce-back candidate is off to a fine start to 2016-17. His minutes will eventually stabilize in the lower 30s when Derrick Favors (knee) returns, but he gets a cupcake matchup with Timofey Mozgov and the Lakers on Friday. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Mason Plumlee plays just 15 minutes
    Mason Plumlee played just 15 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Jazz, finishing with two points, one rebound and one assist.

    Advice: He looked like a stud in the preseason and he’s locked down the starting job, but he struggled with foul trouble against Rudy Gobert. Plumlee is a nice source of rebounds and is usually good for a few assists, but it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when the Blazers add another center to mix in Festus Ezeli (knee). Give Plumlee another chance. Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Tristan Thompson fails to score in opener
    Tristan Thompson started at center for the Cavaliers on Tuesday, but missed his only shot and collected six rebounds for one of the most disappointing lines of the night.

    Advice: He's got to be better than this going forward, while it's important to note that Knicks center Joakim Noah was equally as bad. Give Thompson a couple more games before jumping off the ledge, but feel free to hang out there. Yesterday, 7:49 pm
  • Kevin Love looks good in opening win
    Kevin Love hit 6-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 23 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and three steals in Tuesday's easy romp over the Knicks.

    Advice: The three steals were particularly nice and this is what you should expect from Love, or something resembling it, on a nightly basis. Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Joakim Noah invisible in loss to Cavs
    Joakim Noah played 20 minutes, missed his only shot attempt and finished with zero points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's opening loss to Cleveland.

    Advice: Noah's simply not the player he used to be and injuries have taken a toll. He missed all but 29 games last season after shoulder surgery so it could take him a while to get back in game shape. Then again, the longer it takes him to return to form, the better the chances are of him suffering some other type of injury. If he doesn't kill it in his next game, look for Noah to start showing up on waiver wires across the fantasy landscape. Yesterday, 7:23 pm
  • Porzingis plays well in season opener
    Kristaps Porzingis had 16 points, seven rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 5-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's season-opening loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: It's hard not to love Porzingis and his game, and the fact he racked up the gold tonight (steals, blocks and treys) should reassure owners that they made the right pick in their draft. Yesterday, 7:15 pm
  • Rose, Lee, Anthony, Porzingis, Noah starting
    Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah are starting vs. the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Advice: No surprises here. This will likely be the Knicks starting lineup for the entirety of the regular season, or as long as all five starters can stay healthy. Yesterday, 4:43 pm
  • Wright (ankle) to be re-evaluated in 10 days
    Brandon Wright (left ankle) will be re-evaluated in 10 days.

    Advice: Wright just can't ever seem to stay healthy, and while he'll be re-evaluated in 10 days, he remains without an official timetable to return. With Wright out and Marc Gasol's minutes likely to be held in check early on, Zach Randolph could be earning some extended run at the five-spot. Wright isn't worth owning almost anywhere. Yesterday, 3:33 pm
  • Derrick Favors (knee) gets in intense workout
    Derrick Favors (left knee) was spotted going through an "intense" full court workout following Tuesday morning's shootaround.

    Advice: He's already been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers, but he was able to some full court sprints on Tuesday in addition to working in some halfcourt, pick-and-roll sets, so he's definitely progressing in a positive direction. The Jazz will return to Utah for a home game against the Lakers on Friday, so for now, we'll be considering Favors questionable for that one. Boris Diaw will be the starter sans Favors, but Trey Lyles should be the primary beneficiary with Rodney Hood taking on a more active role in the offense. Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Aron Baynes (nose) will play opening night
    Aron Baynes (nose) went through a full practice on Tuesday and is set to play in Wednesday's season opener against Toronto.

    Advice: Baynes was never expected to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, but he's not a great option anywhere while Andre Drummond is healthy. Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Noel undergoes successful left knee surgery
    Nerlens Noel underwent successful surgery on his left knee on Tuesday.

    Advice: Early reports suggest that Noel is looking at a 3-5 week absence, but knowing the 76ers, his absence could certainly extend past that timeline. Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor (knee) will be picking up the slack in Noel's absence, and we could also see Brett Brown go with some small-ball lineups using Dario Saric at the five-spot with Jerami Grant earning some extended minutes at the four. Expect Noel to be handled with kid gloves once he is finally cleared to return to the court. Yesterday, 12:42 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio (neck) practices in full
    Cristiano Felicio (neck) went through a full practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll more than likely be available for Chicago's regular-season opener against Boston, but whether he actually takes the court is another issue entirely. Leave him on the wire. Yesterday, 12:29 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) questionable for opener
    Darrell Arthur (knee surgery) is questionable to play in Denver's regular-season opener against New Orleans on Wednesday.

    Advice: He still hasn't gone through a full practice, so chances are he'll spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines. Arthur is a non-factor in all leagues while the Nuggets are healthy. Yesterday, 12:27 pm
  • Miles Plumlee likely to start opening night
    Miles Plumlee has been practicing with the starting unit, so it looks like he'll be Milwaukee's starting center for Wednesday's regular-season opener against Charlotte.

    Advice: Through 14 games as a starter last season, Plumlee only managed to contribute averages of 6.6 points, 5.4 boards and 1.0 block, so he's a good example of how starting doesn't necessarily lead to fantasy value. Greg Monroe will come off the bench. Yesterday, 12:13 pm
  • Festus Ezeli (knee) out Tuesday vs. the Jazz
    Festus Ezeli (left knee surgery) has been ruled out for Portland's regular-season opener against Utah.

    Advice: He's still not practicing in full, so this is hardly a surprise. Ezeli will have a limited role behind Mason Plumlee this year, so his fantasy value will be more or less non-existent. Yesterday, 11:30 am
  • Boris Diaw will start at PF on opening night.
    Boris Diaw will start at PF on opening night.

    Advice: Diaw will start in place of the injured Derrick Favors (knee). Even though he is starting it would be surprising if Diaw played more than 25 minutes on opening night. He will likely split time with Trey Lyles. Despite coming off the bench, Lyles is the more appealing Daily Fantasy play. Yesterday, 11:07 am
  • Taj Gibson will start on opening night
    Taj Gibson will start at power forward on opening night.

    Advice: Coach Fred Hoiberg has made the decision to start Gibson over Nikola Mirotic. Even though the Bulls now have limited long-range shooting in their starting lineup, Gibson outplayed Mirotic during the preseason and deserved to be named a starter. Nonetheless, Gibson and Mirotic will likely end up splitting minutes at power forward, decreasing the fantasy value of each player as they remain locked in a timeshare. Yesterday, 11:04 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) will not play in opener
    Derrick Favors (left knee) will not play in season opener vs. Portland.

    Advice: Favors hasn't seen game action since the preseason opener, which was a month ago. There was hope that he would be ready to play by the time the regular season rolled around, but that hope has been extinguished. We still don't have a clear timetable as to when Favors will return to the floor. Trey Lyles will likely see an uptick in minutes with Favors sidelined and makes for an intriguing Daily Fantasy play on Tuesday night. Yesterday, 10:51 am
  • Joel Embiid on 20-minute restriction
    Joel Embiid (foot) will on a 20-minute restriction on opening night.

    Advice: Embiid had been playing between 18 and 20 minutes a night in the preseason and showed no ill effects. The Sixers plan on playing Embiid for five 4-minute increments each game early on this season. Embiid in incredibly skilled and would post terrific numbers if he stays healthy enough to play 30-plus minutes. Embiid is one of the most intriguing players in the entire league this season. The downside is obvious, but the potential reward is also great. Yesterday, 10:23 am
  • Frank Kaminsky unlikely to play in opener
    Frank Kaminsky (foot strain) is unlikely to play in Wednesday night's season-opener.

    Advice: Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer states that it "doesn't sound like" Kaminsky will play in the season-opener. Kaminsky has been making progress, as yesterday he shed the protective walking boot he had been wearing over the weekend, but it appears as if he won't make his season debut to later this week. Yesterday, 9:45 am
  • Cody Zeller (knee) expected to be available
    Cody Zeller (bruised right knee) will be available for the season opener, barring a setback.

    Advice: It sounds like Zeller is making progress and appears to be on track to play; however, it is unknown if he will be on a minutes restriction. Yesterday, 9:09 am
  • Frank Kaminsky is ‘making lots of progress'
    Hornets forward Frank Kaminsky (foot strain) is "making lots of progress" and is "questionable" for the season-opener.

    Advice: Kaminsky, who suffered a right foot strain in Friday’s exhibition game, was well enough Monday to be walking in sneakers, rather than the protective boot he wore over the weekend. "He said he felt a lot better," coach Steve Clifford said of Kaminsky. "He did a ton [of rehabilitation] Sunday and then he was back in here this morning. I guess you’d call him questionable [for the season-opener], but he’s making lots of progress." Monday, 3:23 pm
  • Brandan Wright (ankle) won't play in opener.
    Brandon Wright (ankle) will not play in the season opener against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wright, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last year, badly sprained his left ankle early in the preseason and is clearly still not yet 100 percent healed. With starting center Marc Gasol (foot, ankle) on a minutes restriction, there was an opportunity for Wright to see increased playing time, but Wright needs to first get himself healthy. Monday, 12:22 pm
  • The Thunder have waived Mitch McGary
    The Thunder have waived Mitch McGary.

    Advice: McGary has battled off-the-court issues and was to be suspended the first 15 games of the season for twice violating the league's anti-drug program. He's also dealt with a number of significant injuries. McGary was projected as a promising lottery pick early in his collegiate career at Univeristy of Michigan, but has failed to live up to hype since entering the NBA. He may be forced to try to rehabilitate his career overseas. Monday, 11:56 am
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) feeling better every day
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) said that his knee has been feeling better every day.

    Advice: Okafor is on track to suit up for Philly's regular-season opener against OKC on Wednesday, but he'll be coming off the bench behind Joel Embiid, and will more than likely be brought along slowly with a strict minutes limit. He's not all that attractive of a standard league target, although his value is a bit better in points settings. Monday, 11:35 am
  • Aron Baynes (nose) expected to play in opener
    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that he expects Aron Baynes (nose) to suit up for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Raptors.

    Advice: Van Gundy said that he anticipates Baynes going through a full practice on Tuesday, and that he won't put a minutes limit on Baynes for Wednesday's game. He should be good to go, but he won't have much fantasy value at all as long as Andre Drummond is healthy. Monday, 11:04 am
  • Josh McRoberts (foot) cleared for contact
    Josh McRoberts (left foot) has been cleared for contact, and hopes to make it back to the court "sooner rather than later."

    Advice: Additionally, McRoberts said he's spent most his time at the five-spot during Heat practices, so it sounds like Erik Spoelstra envisions McBob operating as Hassan Whiteside's primary backup. It's unlikely that McRoberts will be able to see much more than 20 minutes a night in a reserve role, and he's still without an official timetable to return, so there's no reason to draft him anywhere. Monday, 10:11 am
  • Mitch McGary likely to be waived by OKC
    Mitch McGary will likely be waived by the Thunder on Monday, according to Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman.

    Advice: McGary will be suspended for the first 15 games of the season for twice violating the league's anti-drug program, and it seems like OKC is done with this investment. He sat out the first four preseason games due to a sore foot, but was also unable to get on the floor at all once deemed healthy. McGary is a complete non-factor in fantasy hoops. Monday, 7:03 am
  • HOU wanted Capela to play more mins last year
    Houston management reportedly pushed for Clint Capela to get more minutes, at the expense of Dwight Howard last season.

    Advice: Rockets' GM Daryl Morey and owner Leslie Alexander were the ones arguing to get more minutes to Capela, as they believed his development was crucial with Howard likely to leave via free agency, and that decision was reportedly "heavily influenced" by James Harden. The takeaway here is that Howard is now in Atlanta, so management (and Harden) should get their wish, with Capela potentially looking at a 30-plus-minute role this season. He's a decent late-round flier if you're punting free throws. Monday, 6:42 am
  • Cody Zeller (knee) practices fully Sunday
    Cody Zeller (bruised right knee) was a full participant in Sunday's practice.

    Advice: He's questionable for opening night, but coach Steve Clifford has already conceded that Zeller will be very limited upon his return due to a lack of conditioning. Roy Hibbert will almost certainly start on opening night, but there are no guarantees he can keep the job once Zeller gets up to speed. Sunday, 5:13 pm
  • Joakim Noah says he feels 'a step slow' on D
    Joakim Noah acknowledged that he felt "a step slow" on the defensive end during the preseason.

    Advice: "Right now I feel a step slow defensively. And I have to do better. I have to do better for this ball-club. We all do," Noah said. "I mean for sure I feel like I haven’t played in a long time. I just have to get my steps, get my first step back, and it will come. It will come." Shoulder surgery kept Noah off the court for all but 29 games last year, and then he missed time during the preseason with an ankle and hamstring issue, so it makes sense that he's feeling a bit rusty. The 31-year-old can't be viewed as anything more than a late-round target in standard leagues. Sunday, 1:37 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio (neck) doesn't practice Sun
    Cristiano Felicio (neck) did not practice on Sunday.

    Advice: He's still dealing with some swelling in his throat, but it would be surprising if he weren't able to go by opening night. Felicio will have a very limited role behind Robin Lopez this season, so you'd have to be in an insanely deep league to look his way. Sunday, 12:24 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) limited at practice Sun
    Darrell Arthur (knee surgery) was a limited participant during Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Michael Malone is hopeful that Arthur will be able to ramp of his activities during Monday and Tuesday's practice, but he remains questionable for Denver's regular-season opener against the Pelicans on Wednesday. Arthur won't be on the court enough while the team is at full strength to justify a roster spot in fantasy hoops. Sunday, 12:12 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky (foot) questionable for opener
    Frank Kaminsky (right foot sprain) is questionable to play Charlotte's regular-season opener against Milwaukee.

    Advice: Marvin Williams (finger) is going to play on opening night, so Kaminsky's status is more or less meaningless. If Kaminsky is out on Wednesday, it'll be Michael Kidd-Gilchrist earning some extended minutes at the four-spot, with Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes splitting the center minutes. Sunday, 11:40 am
  • Boris Diaw (leg) practices in full on Sunday
    Boris Diaw (right leg) was a full participant during Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Diaw sat out Saturday's practice with a leg bruise, but he should be just fine for opening night. Still, he won't have a large enough role in Utah to justify a draft pick in almost any format. Sunday, 11:36 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) limited at practice Sun
    Derrick Favors (left knee) participated in portions of Sunday's practice.

    Advice: This is the first time that Favors has gone through any sort of practice since going down with the knee injury, and while this is a positive development, we're still going to consider him questionable for Utah's regular-season opener against Portland until we get some more information. Knee issues for big men are always concerning, so Favors remains a bit of a risky early-round target. Trey Lyles will benefit most if Favors' misses any time during the regular season. Sunday, 11:31 am
  • Jahlil Okafor limited in practice Sunday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) was limited at Sunday's practice, but he's optimistic about playing Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Coach Brett Brown said he looked "OK" and gave him a B-minus. He only played eight total minutes in the preseason and it sounds like his role will be very limited right out of the gate -- Okafor expects to see more than eight minutes, but not too much more. With Nerlens Noel (knee) on the shelf, this means that Richaun Holmes could be in the rotation on opening night. Joel Embiid is the center you want to own in Philly. Sunday, 10:22 am
  • Aron Baynes (nose) to see doctor on Sunday
    Aron Baynes (nose) is expected to see a doctor on Sunday.

    Advice: After undergoing surgery earlier this week, Baynes will check in with the doctor to see if he can be cleared for non-contact work. The hope is that he'll be cleared to practice in full on Tuesday and be ready for Wednesday's season opener. Saturday, 2:18 pm
  • Report: Noel (knee surgery) to miss 3-5 weeks
    Nerlens Noel (left knee surgery) is expected to be out for the next three-to-five weeks, sources told Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    Advice: Noel's procedure is scheduled to take place on Monday, and we now have a better idea of just how long we can expect to see him sitting on the sidelines. This means Noel will be targeting a return in late November, and it's unclear what role he may come back to given Joel Embiid has played well and Jahlil Okafor (knee surgery) will be his backup to begin the year. Sooner or later, the Sixers will need to stop this charade and move one of these guys, but they're not going to get equal value for any of them at the current moment in time. It's a bad situation that's only getting more complicated in both fantasy and reality. Saturday, 2:07 pm
  • Bulls waiting to name starting power forward
    Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said that he's still undecided on who will start at power forward on opening night.

    Advice: If Hoiberg is making his decision based on the preseason, it should be Taj Gibson given he was easily Chicago's best option at the position. At this point, it would be surprising to see the team go in another direction. Gibson was awesome during the preseason and deserves a look at the end of standard drafts, just don't expect him to be one of those "upside" kind of picks. Saturday, 12:29 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio (neck) gets a DNP Saturday
    Cristiano Felicio (neck) did not practice on Saturday.

    Advice: The big man was elbowed in his throat last game, so the Bulls decided to give him a rest. It doesn't sound serious and there are no indications that he's in danger of missing more time moving forward. Saturday, 12:24 pm
  • Boris Diaw (leg contusion) DNP on Saturday
    Boris Diaw (right leg contusion) did not practice on Saturday.

    Advice: It was previously reported that Diaw had a left leg contusion, but either way it does not sound serious and the veteran should be ready to roll for opening night. He could be looking at a bigger role out of the gate given Derrick Favors (left knee) faces an uncertain timetable to return. Saturday, 12:17 pm
  • Derrick Favors (L knee) still not practicing
    Derrick Favors (left knee, IT band syndrome) did not practice again on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz and fantasy owners can continue to hold out hope that he'll be ready for the regular season opener, but the reality is as follows: Favors hasn't been on the floor in nearly three weeks, we've gotten very little real information when it comes to his progression and nobody seems to know exactly what the problem is. At this point, we have no choice but to bump him down our draft boards while moving up Trey Lyles a few ticks in the process. Favors should be considered questionable at best for opening night and the potential exists for him to miss multiple regular season contests. Saturday, 11:44 am
  • Joel Embiid scores 18 points in 18 minutes
    Joel Embiid scored 18 points with nine rebounds and two turnovers in 18 minutes on Friday.

    Advice: It was a busy process for him this month. Embiid finished his first NBA preseason with a 37.8 usage rate -- DeMarcus Cousins led the NBA last year at 35.2. On the regular stats, he averaged 11.4 points, 6.0 boards, 0.9 blocks and 2.6 turnovers in just 14.7 minutes per game. There's a ton of risk here and you know the 76ers will be careful because of all their bad luck lately, but feel free to pull the trigger on Embiid in the later rounds to see what happens. Friday, 8:53 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor gets eight minutes, scores four
    Jahlil Okafor scored four points in his preseason debut on Friday, adding one rebound, one assist, one turnover and one block in eight minutes.

    Advice: He had a nice face-up spin move for his field goal make and looked fine in his two mini stints. With Nerlens Noel (knee, groin) set to miss time, Okafor should be able to get minutes around 24 once he's 100 percent. It's still unclear how long Noel will be out, so it's probably best to avoid both Okafor and Noel. Friday, 7:11 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky suffers right foot sprain
    Frank Kaminsky suffered a right foot sprain on Friday.

    Advice: That's not good and it was more than just the originally reported soreness. Kaminsky will likely be getting further evaluation this weekend to determine his prognosis and treatment. For now, we will consider him between doubtful and questionable for the opener. If he and Marvin Williams (finger) can't go, the Hornets will have to play multiple players out of position. Friday, 6:29 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky (right foot) to locker room
    Frank Kaminsky has gone to the locker room to be evaluated for a sore right foot.

    Advice: It didn't look bad and hopefully it's just soreness. Kaminsky was absolutely dominated by Karl-Anthony Towns and the Hornets have no incentive to put him back out there. With Marvin Williams (finger) questionable for the season opener, the Hornets may need Frank the Tank. Friday, 5:46 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (knee) to have minor procedure
    Nerlens Noel (knee, groin) has elected to address his injury via a minor surgical procedure "in the coming days," according to the 76ers.

    Advice: That rules him out for the start of the season, and this is different from his groin injury. According to the team, "Noel reported localized soreness in his left knee. After consulting with multiple specialists, the source of the soreness was identified as inflamed plica." There is no timetable and the 76ers will undoubtedly take their time with him. At this point, Noel is only a borderline draft pick in standard leagues. Richaun Holmes and Joel Embiid benefit while Jahlil Okafor (knee) is still on a minutes cap. Friday, 3:45 pm
  • Josh McRoberts out again on Friday
    Josh McRoberts (foot) will not play on Friday.

    Advice: The Heat are in no rush to bring him back. McRoberts has no timetable to return. Friday, 3:21 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) to see 6-8 minutes Fri
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) will play 6-8 minutes on Friday.

    Advice: That likely means he's only getting one stint tonight. Joel Embiid and Richaun Holmes will take on most of the center minutes tonight. Okafor's health concerns and unclear role make him a fairly undesirable fantasy target. Friday, 3:06 pm
  • Boris Diaw (leg) on the injury report
    Boris Diaw (left leg contusion) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: This is a new injury for Diaw. There was no indication of an injury before this, so it's likely just a light bruise. For now, expect Diaw to be available for the opener. Friday, 12:16 pm
  • Derrick Favors (knee) still not practicing
    Derrick Favors (left knee) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: Since his preseason debut back on Oct. 4, Favors has been on the injury report due to knee soreness. He had right knee soreness back in April and also missed one game due to left knee soreness in 2012. In other words, Favors' 25-year-old knees aren't in terrible shape. That said, he should be bumped down a round or two with this concern. Trey Lyles has added value. Friday, 12:14 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) ruled out Friday
    Darrell Arthur (knee surgery) will not play on Friday vs. Dallas.

    Advice: There was some hope that Arthur could go after he took some contact in Thursday's practice, but the Nuggets aren't going to take any chances. The Nuggets going with a big lineup of Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic hurts Arthur's outlook, especially since he's behind Kenneth Faried on the depth chart. Arthur can be considered questionable for the opener. Friday, 10:06 am
  • Clint Capela resting on Friday
    Clint Capela is resting on Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: After a sluggish start to the preseason, Capela had his best game on Wednesday with 12 points, 13 rebounds, one assist and two turnovers. He will be a nice source of rebounds and blocks late, but his brutal free throw shooting will keep his value in check. Nene and Chinanu Onuaku will fill the void Friday. Friday, 9:22 am
  • Jahlil Okafor will play 8-10 minutes Friday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) will play 8-10 minutes on Friday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He was originally listed as doubtful, so this is a nice surprise. Okafor made it through the morning shootaround and this confirms that he should also be ready for opening night. He's coming off knee surgery and had a minor setback during training camp, so expectations should be tempered in the early going. With the emergence of Joel Embiid in the preseason, Okafor will come off the bench this season and is just a late-round pick. Friday, 8:07 am
  • Taj Gibson has another solid game
    Taj Gibson scored 12 points with nine rebounds and one block in 26 minutes on Thursday.

    Advice: For a player to leapfrog another on the depth chart, one player will have to have a strong October while the other struggles. That's exactly what happened with Taj going off and Nikola Mirotic (back) flopping and getting hurt. Maybe a guy like Rajon Rondo can get Gibson going, so give him a look in the last couple rounds to see what happens. Thursday, 8:59 pm
  • Joakim Noah plays 21 minutes on Thursday
    Joakim Noah played 21 points on Thursday with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, one block and four turnovers.

    Advice: It's tough to get a read on Noah's role as the starter due to the injury earlier this month, but only 21 minutes tonight now that he's been healthy for almost a week should indicate he won't play minutes in the upper 20s. Noah has been valuable in fantasy before due to his blocks, assists, steals and boards, so he's worthy of a late round pick after the high-demand sleepers are gone. Thursday, 8:17 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) doubtful Friday vs. MIA
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is doubtful to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Heat.

    Advice: Okafor will be traveling with the team to Miami, and said that he's expecting to be available for opening night, but it sounds like he'll again be on the sidelines for Friday's meaningless game. Okafor isn't in a great situation coming off knee surgery and fighting for minutes in Philly's frontcourt, so he's not a great target in standard fantasy leagues. Thursday, 4:11 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) questionable for Friday
    Darrell Arthur (knee surgery) took some contact during Thursday's practice, and there's a chance he can suit up for Friday's preseason finale against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Friday will mark Day-10 of Arthur's initial 10-14 day timetable, so if he wakes up feeling fine after going through Thursday's practice, he could certainly be on the floor Friday night. That being said, he's not going to have any value in fantasy hoops this season while the team is healthy. Thursday, 4:09 pm
  • Ezeli (knee) limited at practice Thursday
    Festus Ezeli (knee) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Ezeli remains doubtful for the regular season opener, and he'll likely be brought along slowly once he is finally able to give it a go. In other words, he's not an attractive guy to draft in almost any format. Thursday, 3:49 pm
  • Walker, Batum, MKG, Kaminsky, Hibbert start
    Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Frank Kaminsky and Roy Hibbert will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Heat.

    Advice: Marvin Williams is dealing with a broken finger, and Cody Zeller (knee) still isn't 100 percent, so Kaminsky will have the opportunity to run with the starters tonight. Steve Clifford hasn't officially ruled Williams' out for opening night, but if he's not able to give it a go, it'll likely be Kaminsky opening the year as Charlotte's starting four-man. That being said, Kaminsky's value will tank once Williams' gets back on the court, so he's only worth a look as a late-round flier in deep leagues. Thursday, 3:32 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) probable for opener?
    Jahlil Okafor said that "everything's looking good" with his surgically repaired right knee, and he expects to be ready for the 76ers' regular-season opener against the Thunder.

    Advice: He's doubtful to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Heat, and while he's expecting to play on opening night, we wouldn't be so sure as players are often overly optimistic when projecting their return from an injury. Okafor also said that he's "fine" coming off the bench this season, which is a good indication that his minutes will be limited to begin the year as he fights for playing time in Philly's overcrowded frontcourt. He's more of a late-round pick in deep leagues at the moment. Thursday, 2:11 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge says he's happy in SA
    LaMarcus Aldridge said that he's happy in San Antonio and he's not buying into the rumors that the Spurs are open to trading him.

    Advice: "For sure, I am," Aldridge said when asked if he's been pleased with the way things have gone in San Antonio. "We made history last year (winning a franchise-record 67 games). They incorporated me into the family and tried to make me one of the big pieces. I’m from Texas. I see my family. I’m winning. Of course, I’m happy. That’s why I don’t buy into the rumors. I feel like I’ve done everything they’ve asked of me." The original report didn't come from the most reliable source, so we wouldn't read too much into the rumors. Thursday, 1:24 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor doubtful for Friday vs Miami
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against Miami.

    Advice: Okafor still thinks he'll be able to play when the regular season begins, but Okafor continues to be listed as doubtful for Friday's preseason game agains the Heat. Okafor is stuck in a frontcourt logjam and is likely to see his minutes restricted to start the season, so he is only worth a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues at this point. Thursday, 9:47 am
  • Joel Embiid targeting 18-20 minutes on Friday
    Joel Embiid will play 18-20 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: Embiid did individual work at practice on Friday and will again target 20 minutes on Friday. Embiid will have his minutes restricted to open the season, but he's worth a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues due to his upside. Thursday, 9:36 am
  • Josh McRoberts out Thursday vs Hornets
    Josh McRoberts (left foot) will miss Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: McRoberts has no set timetable for his return and has no fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues at the moment. Thursday, 7:42 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) questionable for opener
    Derrick Favors (left knee) is questionable for Utah's season opener on Oct. 25, according to Jazz beat writer Tony Jones.

    Advice: Jones wrote that he's "hearing [Favors] will be back for opener," but he also warned, "won't know his status until close to Tuesday ... he needs to practice first." There are obviously no guarantees that Favors won't begin the season with a DNP, but this is at least an optimistic tidbit for worried fantasy owners. Wednesday, 9:22 pm
  • Derrick Favors (left knee) sits out yet again
    Derrick Favors (left knee) didn't play in Wednesday's preseason finale, as expected.

    Advice: Favors hasn't practiced since Utah's preseason opener, which doesn't bode well for his opening-night status. He's dealing with IT band syndrome, which is related to overuse and causes pain during lateral movement, and rest is the primary prescription. There's enough risk here to bump him down a round or two on draft day. Wednesday, 8:37 pm
  • Mason Plumlee racks up 10/8/7 in 24 minutes
    Mason Plumlee notched eight points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in just 24 minutes vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: Plumlee had an assist rate of 21.6 last season, which ranked third among PF/Cs who played at least 25 minutes per game -- only Draymond Green and Tim Duncan were ahead of him. He hasn't missed a game in the past two seasons and only needs 25 minutes to be a low-end fantasy option, yet he can routinely be taken with a flier pick on draft day. Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Clint Capela bounces back on Wednesday
    Clint Capela got the start on Wednesday against the Mavs, finishing with 12 points, 13 rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

    Advice: With Nene resting, Capela needed to impress coach Mike D'Antoni. Luckily, he arguably had his best game of the month and did a fine job on the defensive end. His starting job isn't 100 percent locked up, so his awful foul shooting makes it tough to draft him unless you're punting free throw percentage. Wednesday, 8:15 pm
  • Miles Plumlee scores 10 pts w/ eight boards
    Miles Plumlee chipped in 10 points and eight boards in 19 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-5 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

    Advice: The points and rebounds were both preseason highs for Plumlee, which says plenty about his fantasy outlook. Even as the Bucks' presumptive starting center, he's only worth a glance in deep leagues. Wednesday, 7:34 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis fills it up in 23 minutes
    Kristaps Porzingis posted 20 points vs. the Celtics on Sunday, making 7-of-13 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with three rebounds, three blocks, two steals, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: KP did his damage in only 23 minutes, despite coach Jeff Hornacek's plan to ramp up for the regular season. "It's kind of our last chance to see if these guys can play that much without petering out," Hornacek said. Porzingis aced tonight's pop-quiz, to say the least, and there's a reason he's flying off draft boards in the early rounds. Wednesday, 7:26 pm
  • Joakim Noah (ankle) logs 14 minutes Wednesday
    Joakim Noah (ankle) pitched in two points, seven rebounds and four assists in his second preseason game, going 0-of-2 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in 14 minutes.

    Advice: The Knicks have taken a cautious approach with their oft-injured center this preseason, but he's on pace to start the season opener. He has a lot to prove after a poor 2015-16 campaign during which he shot 38.8 percent from the field, but boasts an expanded role and enough upside to warrant a late-round pick. Wednesday, 7:24 pm
  • Cody Zeller (knee) iffy for season opener
    Hornets coach Steve Clifford conceded that Cody Zeller (bruised knee) might not be able to play much early in the regular season.

    Advice: "Bottom line is he’s not going to be ready. He hasn’t done enough," Clifford said. "You couldn’t, with any realistic expectation, think that he could possibly play much, if at all. He’s had no preseason, so there’s no way he could be ready to play." Zeller's lingering bone bruise leaves Roy Hibbert as the opening night starter, with Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky as backups. Wednesday, 4:51 pm
  • Cody Zeller (right knee) ruled out Thursday
    Cody Zeller (right knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Zeller recently returned to practice without any setbacks, but the team is wisely being cautious with an injury that has lingered throughout the offseason. Considering Zeller's lack of on-court time this preseason, Roy Hibbert is poised to open the season as Charlotte's starting center. Wednesday, 4:17 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis is back for Wednesday
    Kristaps Porzingis (groin) will start on Wednesday.

    Advice: His groin strain from Saturday was never really a concern. Interestingly, Porzinigis leads the Knicks in 3-pointers per game. As long as he has some consistency, the Unicorn should soar in his second season. Wednesday, 3:50 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) doubtful for Friday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is doubtful to play on Friday.

    Advice: This is a small positive that the 76ers didn't rule him out. Okafor's right knee figures to keep his minutes down in the beginning of the season and Joel "The Process" Embiid figures to start. On top of that, it doesn't look like Brett Brown wants to go big-big at power forward and center. Okafor is only a late-round pick in most leagues. Wednesday, 2:01 pm
  • Derrick Favors (knee) doubtful for Wednesday
    Derrick Favors (left knee) did not go through shootaround and is not expected to play in Wednesday's exhibition game against the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Favors hasn't taken the court since October 3, and while IT band syndrome isn't typically a serious issue, the extended absence is concerning. Until we get some new info, we're going to consider him questionable for opening night, and with each day spent on the sidelines it's getting increasingly difficult to justify spending an early mid-round selection on Favors. If you do take the plunge on draft day, it would be wise to also invest a late-round selection in Trey Lyles as a handcuff pick. Wednesday, 10:19 am
  • Aron Baynes (nose) out Wednesday vs. TOR
    Aron Baynes (nose) will miss Wednesday's preseason game against the Raptors.

    Advice: Baynes underwent surgery on Tuesday to correct his broken nose, and he's currently being fitted for a mask. Boban Marjanovic should see some increased floor time tonight sans Baynes, but neither guy will be worth drafting in standard leagues, as they'll both see limited minutes behind Andre Drummond this season. Wednesday, 9:18 am
  • NYK pickup team option on Kristaps Porzingis
    The Knicks have picked up their 2017-18 team option on Kristaps Porzingis.

    Advice: This was probably the easiest decision Phil Jackson has ever had to make as a member of the Knicks front office. Porzingis could be in for a top-30 season playing in Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo system, so taking him anytime during Round-3 makes sense. He is dealing with a minor groin issue, but he went through a full practice on Tuesday so he should be just fine for opening night. Wednesday, 8:14 am
  • Festus Ezeli (knee) not close to a return
    Festus Ezeli (left knee surgery) is still not close to getting back on the court.

    Advice: "We’re taking it day by day," said Ezeli. "There’s no timetable [for a return] when it comes to this stuff. It goes by feel. Some days I feel good. There are good days and bad days, but there’s progress overall." To this point Ezeli has only been able to go through light shooting drills, but taking contact remains off the table. It would be shocking to see Ezeli active on opening night, and the fact is he just won't have a large enough role in Portland to justify a draft pick in most settings. Wednesday, 7:37 am
  • Tristan Thompson double-doubles in loss
    Tristan Thompson double-doubled vs. the Wizards on Tuesday, notching 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting with 10 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 23 minutes.

    Advice: This is what he does. The Cavs won't run many plays for Thompson, but he's going to clean up on the offensive glass for put-backs which will keep his FG percentage up. He will be the full-time starter at center this season and is a lock to see more than the 28 minutes per game he played last season. He's a subpar free throw shooter and won't record many blocks, but he's an excellent source of rebounds. Tuesday, 6:43 pm
  • Brandan Wright (ankle) out Wednesday
    Brandan Wright (ankle) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: The guy just can't stay healthy. Wright is expected to be in the rotation this season, but he should be considered questionable for opening night. Zach Randolph will get the backup center minutes if Wright can't go. Tuesday, 4:15 pm
  • Report: SA open to trading LaMarcus Aldridge
    The Spurs are reportedly open to trading away LaMarcus Aldridge should the right deal arrive.

    Advice: Those close to the situation suggest that Aldridge may not be happy playing second fiddle to Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio, and Jackie MacMullan of ESPN has hinted that Aldridge could be sent packing prior to the conclusion of the 2016-17 season. Aldridge does have a player option for the 2018-19 season, so the Spurs may want to ship him out now while he still has a couple years left on his deal if things start heading south. Phoenix and Boston could emerge as potential suitors for Aldridge should anything go down, but to be clear, nothing is imminent at the moment. Tuesday, 1:02 pm
  • Aron Baynes breaks nose at practice on Tues
    Aron Baynes broke his nose during Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Baynes should be just fine for opening night, but he won't have much fantasy value at all while Andre Drummond is healthy. Tuesday, 11:07 am
  • Jahlil Okafor sits out Tuesday practice
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee surgery) sat out Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Okafor has been making progress and appears on track to play in the regular season opener. "We held [Okafor] out today," Sixers head coach Brett Brown said. "We didn't want you to push it. He felt ok." While Okafor appears to be returning to full health, he's not much more than a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues as he's stuck in a frontcourt logjam. Tuesday, 10:45 am
  • Joel Embiid feels 200 percent healthy
    Joel Embiid said he feels 200 percent healthy, but it still getting into game shape.

    Advice: Embiid's highly-anticipated NBA debut is now in sight and his health finally won't prevent that from happening. "Health-wise, I'm 200 percent," Embiid said. "Game shape-wise, I'm not 100 percent." The 22-year-old will have his minutes limited to begin the season, but he's still worth a late-round flier in standard fantasy drafts due to his upside. Tuesday, 10:29 am
  • Kristaps Porzingis practices on Tuesday
    Kristaps Porzingis (strained groin) was able to practice in full on Tuesday.

    Advice: Porzingis wasn't thought to be in danger of missing the season opener on Oct. 25 and his return to practice solidifies that thought. The second-year player remains a solid target in the third round of standard fantasy drafts after averaging 14.3 points, 7.3 boards, 1.1 triples, 1.3 assists and 1.9 blocks per game last season. Tuesday, 10:12 am
  • Nerlens Noel, 76ers not talking extension yet
    Nerlens Noel (groin) and the 76ers haven't talked about an extension yet.

    Advice: The two sides have until October 31 to work out a deal that will keep Noel from becoming a restricted free agent after the 2016-17 season, but the two sides have yet to talk. "It's not really something that we've discussed, given some of the concerns that I think Nerlens has had, right now," said the team's president of basketball operations, Brian Colangelo. "There's been very little if any discussion with his agents about any extension scenarios." While the two sides will talk before the deadline, Noel isn't much more than a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues due to the 76ers crowded frontcourt. Tuesday, 10:09 am
  • Jazz still hoping to extend Rudy Gobert
    Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said the Jazz are still hoping to sign Rudy Gobert to an extension.

    Advice: The two sides have until the October 31 deadline to agree to an extension that will prevent Gobert from becoming a restricted free agent after the season, but haven't made any progress yet. "We'll get something done now or later," general manager Dennis Lindsey said. "We obviously don't comment on negotiations. There are times when you get a deal that works for both sides. There are times when it's best to go into restricted free agent. Luckily, we have great trust with Rudy and his agents. Now or later, I think we're fundamentally in a good place." It sounds like something should get done to keep Gobert in Utah, but he's still worth a mid-round pick as a bounce-back candidate this year. Tuesday, 7:09 am
  • Kristaps Porzingis (groin) shrugs off injury
    Kristaps Porzingis (strained groin) feels that he'll be "good to go" for Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: "I felt it a little bit when I warmed up [Monday], but then it felt OK," Porzingis said. "But we’re still just making sure ... When I got loose and warming up, I didn’t feel it anymore." The Knicks are wisely taking every precaution with their prized forward, and this injury shouldn't impact his readiness for the season opener on Oct. 25. Monday, 9:24 pm
  • Rudy Gobert racks up 17 & 10 w/ three blocks
    Rudy Gobert coasted to 17 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and one steal on Monday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in 26 minutes of action.

    Advice: It should be noted that DeAndre Jordan was resting tonight, leaving Gobert to face the less-than-fearsome duo of Marreese Speights and Diamond Stone. The biggest takeaway for fantasy purposes is that Gobert continues to knock down his free throws -- he's a combined 32-of-41 from the line this preseason (78.1 percent), which would shatter his previous career high. His arrow is pointing up after a disappointing 2015-16 campaign. Monday, 8:36 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky (foot) shoots 4-of-14 vs. CHI
    Frank Kaminsky (foot) finished Monday's OT win vs. Chicago with 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The foot injury came out of nowhere and the fact that he played big minutes in a meaningless preseason game is proof that he's fine. Kaminsky's fantasy outlook is bleak, though he's worth watching in deep leagues with Cody Zeller (knee) and Marvin Williams (finger) both ailing. Monday, 8:08 pm
  • Taj Gibson starts again at PF on Monday
    Taj Gibson started Monday's game and had 12 points, six boards and two steals in just 17 minutes of action.

    Advice: The veteran has been on fire all preseason and may have locked up the starting PF job alongside Robin Lopez, as guys like Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis have failed to separate themselves. Mirotic also suffered a strained lower back tonight, increasing the odds that Gibson will start on opening night. Monday, 8:06 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio grabs 12 rebounds off bench
    Cristiano Felicio posted eight points, 12 rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes off Chicago's bench during Monday's overtime defeat.

    Advice: The second-year big man has seen his minutes steadily rise during the preseason, and tonight's total was a high-water mark. The Bulls have plenty of competition at PF but Felicio is the most obvious backup C behind Robin Lopez, which at least puts him on the radar in very deep leagues. Monday, 8:06 pm
  • Aron Baynes (back) plays 19 minutes
    Aron Baynes (back) played 19 minutes on Monday with two points, four boards and one block.

    Advice: The Pistons were expected to hold him out as a precaution, but Baynes convinced the coaching staff to let him play. He has a slight edge over Boban Marjanovic for the backup center role, but this position battle could go either way. Monday, 7:00 pm
  • Hill, Exum, Johnson, Diaw and Gobert starting
    George Hill, Dante Exum, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert will start vs. the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Derrick Favors (knee) and Rodney Hood (hand) have both been ruled out in addition to Alec Burks (knee, ankle) and Gordon Hayward (finger). We should see plenty of late-round sleeper Trey Lyles on Monday as well. Monday, 5:15 pm
  • Josh McRoberts (foot) out Tuesday
    Josh McRoberts (stress reaction in left foot) will not play vs. the Magic on Tuesday.

    Advice: The oft-injured forward has no set timetable for a return and has no fantasy value. Monday, 3:14 pm
  • Porzingis (groin) limited at practice Monday
    Kristaps Porzingis (groin) was limited at Monday's practice.

    Advice: This basically means he didn't scrimmage. Porzingis has already said that the Knicks are being "super cautious" and he's only dealing with some tightness in his groin, so he should be considered day-to-day. Fantasy owners shouldn't slide him down draft boards unless we hear some bad news. Monday, 10:38 am
  • Derrick Favors (left knee) out Monday
    Derrick Favors (left knee) did not go through the morning shootaround and will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise considering he was listed as doubtful. The Jazz haven't provided a timetable and he's been out for nearly two weeks, so this is a little concerning. It should be the Trey Lyles show tonight with a sprinkle of Boris Diaw. Monday, 10:09 am
  • Aron Baynes (lower back tightness) out Monday
    Aron Baynes (lower back tightness) will not play vs. the Bucks on Monday.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game on the shelf. Boban Marjanovic is the most interesting man in the world and has looked dominant in limited preseason action, so Baynes is in danger of losing his backup role behind Andre Drummond. Monday, 9:23 am
  • Frank Kaminsky (foot) probable for Monday
    Frank Kaminsky (foot) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: This is the first we are hearing of a foot injury, but it's a good sign that he was listed as probable. If he is ultimately held out on Monday, the team is just being cautious. Kaminsky had 17 points, four treys and two blocks in his last outing. Monday, 6:18 am
  • Cody Zeller (knee) ruled out for Monday
    Cody Zeller (knee) will not play vs. the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: He was cleared for contact last week and returned to practice on Thursday, but the Hornets aren't ready to throw him out there yet. Zeller is likely looking at a timeshare with Roy Hibbert, so we're not excited about his outlook. Monday, 6:12 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) doubtful Monday vs. LAC
    Derrick Favors (left knee) is doubtful to suit up for Monday's preseason game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Favors still hasn't practiced or played since the preseason opener, and with the regular season just a little over a week away, he's now in jeopardy of not being ready for opening night. The Jazz maintain that Favors' injury is not to be considered a long-term issue, but knee injuries for big men are nothing to shrug at. He's still too talented to let him fall out of the middle rounds on draft day, but there will now be some added risk in selecting a guy that only made it through 62 games last year. Trey Lyles will be the primary beneficiary if Favors is forced to miss any regular season action. Oct 16, 11:56 am
  • Porzingis: Doctors are being 'super cautious'
    Kristaps Porzingis (groin) said that doctors are being "super cautious" in holding him out of Sunday's practice.

    Advice: He is feeling some tightness in his groin, but the injury is said to be very minor. "They want to make sure that I'm 100 percent healthy and can get back on the court," Porzingis said. He expects to be available for Wednesday's game vs. Boston, but we'll have another update on Monday and Tuesday. He should be fine. Oct 16, 6:22 am
