  • Shabazz Muhammad will play on Friday
    Shabazz Muhammad (hip) will play on Friday.

    Advice: He had some hip soreness for some time and the Wolves shut him down. With Andrew Wiggins down, we'll get a good look at Bazz, assuming he's close to 100 percent. Today, 4:21 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins out, Shabazz Muhammad in
    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will not play while Shabazz Muhammad (hip) will on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Tom Thibodeau said he wants to use his starters into the fourth, so we'll see a bunch of the other four first-unit guys. Wiggins should be OK for the opener next week. Today, 4:19 pm
  • Ennis, KJ, Brewer, Ryno & Nene to start
    Nene, Ryan Anderson, K.J. McDaniels, Corey Brewer and Tyler Ennis will start on Friday.

    Advice: Nene isn't going to play a lot with the Rockets giving their guys a night off. This will be a big chance for Ennis to show he can get in the rotation behind James Harden while Pat Beverley (knee) is on the shelf. Today, 4:14 pm
  • Sergio, Hendo, Cov, Saric & Process starting
    Sergio Rodriguez, Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid will start on Friday.

    Advice: This seems like a tune up for the 76ers and maybe it means Rodriguez starts the opener. For what it's worth, this group was together in their scrimmage on Thursday. There still isn't enough upside to draft Rodriguez in most leagues. Today, 3:17 pm
  • JaKarr Sampson signs with Memphis
    Grizzlies sign F JaKarr Sampson.

    Advice: The Nuggets have too much depth right now for Sampson to make the roster, but that's not the case in Memphis. Sampson saw 18.0 minutes per game for the depleted Nuggets after the break last year and was coming around as a scorer. He's still only emergency depth on Memphis. Today, 2:25 pm
    Not Active
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo dealing with illness
    Giannis Antetokounmpo is dealing with an illness on Friday.

    Advice: He's not going to attend the pizza event in Milwaukee because of the illness. He has a few days to get well before the opener and should be ready to go. Antetokounmpo isn't going to be the "point guard" on the roster, but he'll be running the offense. His upside is massive. Today, 2:01 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (knee) questionable for opener
    Aaron Brooks (knee) did not practice on Friday and could miss the opener.

    Advice: He's been out since Oct. 14 due to this knee issue. Brooks should be getting the backup minutes behind Jeff Teague, but he's not going to play next to Teague. If he's out, Joe Young would get in the rotation. Today, 1:47 pm
  • C.J. Miles up in the air for opener
    C.J. Miles (knee) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: With Miles down, the Pacers have seen Glenn Robinson III have a wonderful preseason. Miles is expected to play more stretch four in the second unit, but his minutes could be in jeopardy if GR3 keeps playing well. Today, 1:44 pm
  • Dennis Schroder not feeling pressure
    Dennis Schroder said he's not feeling pressure as the new starting point guard.

    Advice: "They say it’s my team," Schroder said. "I’m the point guard. For me, pressure is not really there because I’ve got so many guys who play on a [high] level." He's looked fine in the preseason and has even assisted Dwight Howard eight times during the preseason. We did see coach Mike Budenholzer put him in the doghouse for guys like Shelvin Mack, but Schroder seems to be locked in for minutes in the mid 30s. Today, 12:54 pm
  • Bulls waive Dinwiddie on Friday
    Bulls waive G Spencer Dinwiddie.

    Advice: The writing was on the wall on Thursday with Dinwiddie getting bumped from the rotation due to the Michael Carter-Williams deal. The former Piston looked good at times this month and even dropped a 19-pointer, so expect him to sign on somewhere else. Today, 11:49 am
  • Gary Harris could play in the season opener?
    According to coach Michael Malone, Gary Harris (groin) could play in the season opener.

    Advice: Wow. Malone said that Harris is way ahead of schedule which contradicts a report by the Denver Post on Thursday. Malone added that he has a "real chance" to play in the opener, so this should improve his draft stock. Harris has mid-round upside and will be the starter at SG when healthy, so take advantage of his discounted price while you still can. Today, 10:15 am
  • Shabazz Muhammad (hip) questionable Friday
    Shabazz Muhammad (right hip soreness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: He went through a full practice on Thursday and should be good to go for the season opener regardless of his status for Friday. Muhammad will be instant offense off the Minnesota bench, but doesn't do much in the box score outside of the scoring column. He's not worth owning while Andrew Wiggins is healthy. Today, 9:59 am
  • Andrew Wiggins (illness) questionable Friday
    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Shabazz Muhammad (hip) is also questionable. Wiggins returned to practice on Thursday, but if he is ultimately held out, it will likely just be a precaution. He will be fine for the regular season. Today, 9:57 am
  • Trevor Ariza resting on Friday
    Trevor Ariza (rest) will not play vs. the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: He's a perfect in Mike D'Antoni's system and has started to turn things around after a slow start to the preseason, averaging 12.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.3 treys per game. Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels should both get a long look on Friday. Today, 9:20 am
  • Eric Gordon resting on Friday
    Eric Gordon will rest vs. the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: He should open the season as the starter at SG, especially with Patrick Beverley possibly needing knee surgery. Gordon is averaging 15.2 points and 2.5 treys per game during the preseason and looks like a nice value pick late. K.J. McDaniels and Corey Brewer will be busy Friday. Today, 9:16 am
  • Nuggets pick up Gary Harris' option
    The Nuggets have picked up their team option on Gary Harris.

    Advice: A report by Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post on Thursday indicated the Harris is still "a ways away" from playing, but his current timetable has him returning the court in early November. Once healthy, Harris will be the starting SG and he has mid-round upside for his treys and steals, so he's definitely worth taking in the late rounds. Today, 6:54 am
  • Hawks waive Will Bynum
    The Hawks have waived Will Bynum.

    Advice: The move brings the Hawks' roster down to 16 players. Jarrett Jack (knee) was also waived on Thursday, so the Hawks only have two active point guards left on the roster in Dennis Schroder and Malcolm Delaney. Today, 6:10 am
  • MCW makes his Bulls debut
    Michael Carter-Williams scored four points in 21 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday, adding one rebound, three assists and one block.

    Advice: He did make just 1-of-5 from the field. Carter-Williams is going to back up Rajon Rondo and should have plenty of shooters around him in the second unit. MCW is still not worth drafting in most leagues. Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Gary Harris still a ways away
    Gary Harris (groin) is still "a ways away" from playing, according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.

    Advice: It's been mostly positives on Harris lately with the third-year guard doing some shooting pre-game. There isn't a formal timetable on Harris, but the window based on a handful or reports seems to be at some point in early November. Despite the Nuggets taking two shooting guards in the first round, Harris should still get plenty of run. His injury caused him to slide to become a solid pick in the last two rounds. Yesterday, 4:31 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad (hip) practices Thursday
    Shabazz Muhammad (right hip soreness) went through a full practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Muhammad is going to be re-evaluated again following Friday morning's shootaround, so for now we'll be considering him questionable for tomorrow's preseason finale against the Hornets. It's going to be difficult for Muhammad to make a difference in most fantasy leagues while the Timberwolves are at full strength. Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • Wiggins, Muhammad practice on Thursday
    Andrew Wiggins (illness) and Shabazz Muhammad (hip) went through a full practice on Thursday and will be re-evaluated on Friday.

    Advice: We're going to consider both guys questionable for the preseason finale against Charlotte on Friday, but neither guy is dealing with anything that should linger into the regular season. Wiggins should be able to take another step forward under Tom Thibodeau, so he's a decent guy to gamble on during the middle rounds. Yesterday, 12:53 pm
  • Eric Gordon scores 13 points as starter
    Eric Gordon scored 13 points with one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Rockets were launching treys in this game with 39 attempts, making just 12. Gordon attempted seven of them and figures to be chucking plenty more as the favorite to start. His downside is there due to a slew of injuries, but he's a big beneficiary of Pat Beverley (knee) not being healthy. Wednesday, 8:28 pm
  • Trevor Ariza not having good preseason
    Trevor Ariza scored three points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's been a rough preseason for Ariza. In his five games against NBA teams this month, he's only made 29.7 percent from the field with averages of 7.2 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 treys. His minutes should still be safe in the mid 30s and should be one of a handful of players to have at least 2.0 steals and treys. If he starts sliding in the middle rounds in standard leagues, you know what to do. Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Sergio, Hendo, Cov, Saric & Process starting?
    Sergio Rodriguez, Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid were playing together on a scrimmage.

    Advice: It's a toss up for Rodriguez or T.J. McConnell to start in the opener. It looks like Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is not going to be ready for the opener, which means there should be a lot of minutes available. Wednesday, 4:07 pm
  • C.J. Miles (sore knee) held out of contact
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) did spot-up shooting on Wednesday but he didn't participate in contact drills.

    Advice: Miles won't play on Wednesday, obviously, and it's unclear when he'll be cleared to return -- the injury doesn't sound too serious but Indiana might play it safe with the veteran marksman. If he does miss time, expect Glenn Robinson III to pick up most of his minutes. Wednesday, 3:58 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad out with hip soreness
    Shabazz Muhammad (right hip soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did not play on Sunday, but that was reported as a rest day. Muhammad doesn't have a history with hip injuries and this is just reported as soreness, so he should be fine. Wednesday, 3:35 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Muhammad out vs. MEM
    Andrew Wiggins (illness) and Shabazz Muhammad (right hip soreness) will miss Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Coach Tom Thibodeau is going to miss his top two small forward tonight. Brandon Rush has played mostly at shooting guard, but he should have no problem sliding over. We'll also see if Thibs wants to roll with more three-guard lineups. Wiggins should be good to go for the season. Wednesday, 3:32 pm
  • Eric Gordon will start on Wednesday night
    Eric Gordon will start next to James Harden on Wednesday night.

    Advice: The Harden PG era looks like it'll be underway tonight. Gordon should also benefit greatly as a key 3-pointers specialist for coach Mike D'Antoni. While Gordon is injury prone, he's coming off a 2.5 treys per game season and could flirt with 3.0 this year. He's a nice target in the late rounds. Wednesday, 11:26 am
  • Michael Carter-Williams will play Thursday
    Michael Carter-Williams went through a full practice on Wednesday and will make his Bulls' debut Thursday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: MCW is going to play limited minutes behind Rajon Rondo this season, so there's no reason to draft him in most settings. Wednesday, 11:08 am
  • Aaron Brooks (knee) out Wednesday vs. MIL
    Aaron Brooks (knee) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's preseason game against the Bucks.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful heading into this one, so it's not surprising at all to see him opt-out of Wednesday's meaningless game. Brooks isn't going to have any fantasy value this season while the Pacers are at full strength. Wednesday, 10:32 am
  • Miles (knee), Brooks (knee) out Wednesday
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) and Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) have been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Neither player is dealing with a significant injury, but it always seems to be something with Miles. Neither Miles nor Brooks will be worth drafting in most leagues this season. Wednesday, 10:29 am
  • Dennis Schroder scores 13 points
    Dennis Schroder scored 13 points vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: One of the biggest concerns about Schroder is that he shot 42.1 percent from the field last season, but through four preseason games he's up to 45.9 percent. It's a small sample size, but he does look more confident. He should be able to clear 30 minutes per night this season as the full-time starter and it helps that Jarrett Jack (knee) won't be ready for the opener. If you're targeting assists, he's a nice mid-round option. Tuesday, 7:37 pm
  • Michael Carter-Williams doesn't practice Tues
    Michael Carter-Williams did not practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: He still needs to go through his physical, but he should be cleared in time for Thursday's preseason game against the Hawks. That being said, the former Rookie of the Year winner is going to struggle to get meaningful minutes this season operating as Rajon Rondo's backup, so he's not a very attractive target in most setting. Tuesday, 11:53 am
  • Aaron Brooks doubtful for Weds vs Bucks
    Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Brooks had been battling a hip injury throughout the preseason, but his knee injury is relatively new. While Brooks may be ready for the regular season opener, he doesn't have any fantasy value at this point. Tuesday, 10:34 am
  • C.J. Miles takes some practice shots on Tues
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) didn't practice, but was able to take some shots on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miles will travel with the team to Milwaukee and is expected to participate in shootaround on Wednesday. While Miles looks to be on track for the regular season opener, he doesn't have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues. Tuesday, 10:31 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 21 in loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a preseason high 21 points vs. the Pistons on Monday, adding six boards, four assists, one trey and five turnovers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: After a slow start to the preseason, Giannis finally looks like he's worth all the hype. He finished 7-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, and added his second 3-pointer through five games. He needs to reel in the turnovers, but Giannis is still locked and loaded as a mid-first round pick in standard leagues. Monday, 7:16 pm
  • Delly, Giannis, Parker, Mirza, Miles to start
    Matthew Dellavedova, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker, Mirza Teletovic and Miles Plumlee are the expected starters vs. the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Advice: Interesting. Malcolm Brogdon was the listed starter, but Teletovic was running with the starters during warmups. The Bucks really need Teletovic's floor spacing this season, so he's a sneaky late-round pick for his upside in treys. Giannis should be busy tonight and could see an uptick in assists with Teletovic on the floor. Monday, 4:04 pm
  • C.J. Miles (sore left knee) misses practice
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) missed practice again on Monday.

    Advice: Coach Nate McMilan said that Miles is day-to-day, but he's not a lock to be ready for opening night either. If he can't go, Glenn Robinson III could be in the rotation behind Paul George after a solid preseason. Miles isn't worth monitoring outside of deeper leagues. Monday, 10:41 am
  • Bulls officially acquire MCW for Tony Snell
    The Bulls have officially acquired Michael Carter-Williams in exchange for Tony Snell.

    Advice: MCW is a questionable fit on a roster that lacks perimeter shooting, but he is arguably an upgrade over Jerian Grant. Rajon Rondo is locked in as the starter, so the move to Chicago doesn't really improve MCW's fantasy outlook. Unless you're in a points league, let someone else take a flier on him. Monday, 7:55 am
  • Shabazz Muhammad (rest) out Sunday vs. OKC
    Shabazz Muhammad (rest) will not suit up for Sunday's exhibition game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Muhammad isn't dealing with any sort of injury, but this is a preseason back-to-back set, so Thibodeau is also resting his entire starting five. Nemanja Bjelica could flirt with close to 40 minutes tonight. Sunday, 3:59 pm
  • Schroder, Bazemore, Korver, Howard out Sunday
    Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Kyle Korver and Dwight Howard will all be rested for Sunday's exhibition matchup against the Magic.

    Advice: It's just an off-day for the veterans for Sunday's meaningless game. Expect to see more Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince and Walter Tavares with the offense flowing through Paul Millsap while he's on the court. Sunday, 1:19 pm
  • Brown: Sergio tried to run too many plays
    Brett Brown said that Sergio Rodriguez was running too many plays vs. the Pistons on Saturday instead of just going out there and playing.

    Advice: "He's elusive in open court," Brown said. "He's got a feel. He's slippery with his handle and his vision. So I want him to play more like he's always played." Rodriguez got the start at PG, but struggled with three points on 1-for-5 shooting with seven dimes, one rebound, one steal, and three turnovers. Jerryd Bayless (wrist) could be looking at an extended absence, so Rodriguez could be sneaky pickup in deeper leagues for owners targeting assists. Sunday, 10:13 am
  • MCW, Snell trade to be completed Monday
    The trade involving Michael Carter-Williams and Tony Snell is expected to be finalized on Monday.

    Advice: The deal has been agreed to in principle and the two teams just need to call the league office on Monday. MCW's value around the league has never been lower and the move to Chicago won't necessarily help his fantasy value -- Rajon Rondo is locked in as the starter. As for Snell, he could be looking at solid minutes on the wings in Milwaukee with Khris Middleton (groin) out for most of the season, but most fantasy owners should use a wait-and-see approach. Sunday, 8:16 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo getting more PG run?
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 14 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks on Saturday.

    Advice: With Michael Carter-Williams likely heading to Chicago, it looks like we'll be seeing more of P-Giannis. He's not having the strongest preseason with only a 61.9 free throw percentage and making just 33.3 percent on his jumpers. Whatever the case, Antetokounmpo is still locked and loaded as a mid-first pick in standard leagues. Saturday, 8:48 pm
  • Michael Carter-Williams likely headed to CHI?
    The Bucks and Bulls are in "deep talks" on a Michael Carter-Williams for Tony Snell trade, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: It sounds like the deal is going to happen and it could be finalized as soon as Monday. The Bulls would be getting a backup point guard behind Rajon Rondo to help get the ball to the shooters in their second unit. A new, up-tempo home for Carter-Williams is a positive, but it's still not enough to draft him in most leagues. Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins scores 23 points vs. Heat
    Andrew Wiggins scored a preseason-high 23 points against the Heat on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes.

    Advice: After he struggled to hit jumpers earlier this preseason, Wiggins went back to the well with his attacking style. Although, he did have four makes outside of the paint in this game. Wiggins does only have one 3-pointer in his four preseason games, so he might not be able to clear 1.0 per game this season. He's still a decent guy to take in the middle of drafts as long as you're not reaching up too high to get him. Saturday, 8:20 pm
  • D'Antoni: Eric Gordon could start for Rockets
    Mike D'Antoni said that Eric Gordon could start over Patrick Beverley (knee) for the Rockets.

    Advice: D'Antoni said that Gordon isn't starting on Saturday because he wants to keep him in the role that he's expected to have when Beverley returns, but then added in the same breath that EJ could eventually start over Beverley. It doesn't sound like even D'Antoni is sure on exactly what he wants to do, but it's nice to have options. Regardless of whether he starts or comes off the bench, Gordon should play closer to starter's minutes and looks like a good late-round source of 3-pointers and scoring so long as he remains on the court. Saturday, 3:35 pm
  • C.J. Miles (left knee) not a lock for opener
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) is not a lock to be ready by opening night.

    Advice: Although he's labeled as day-to-day, nobody seems to really know when Miles will be able to get back onto the court. "He's being reevaluated as far as where he's at and being able to get on the floor," said head coach Nate McMillan. As a result, Glen Robinson III has been given a new opportunity and could be in line to begin the year in the rotation. When discussing Miles, McMillan confirmed that "Glenn has taken that spot." Saturday, 2:10 pm
  • Nuggets waive Sampson and Toupane
    The Nuggets have waived JaKarr Sampson, Axel Toupane and D.J. Kennedy.

    Advice: Their roster is now down to 17, meaning they still need to waive two more guys. Sampson has improved a ton since his Philly days and should draw some interest around the league. Saturday, 9:30 am
    Not Active
  • Dennis Schroder unlikely to get an extension?
    The Hawks are taking a wait-and-see approach in regards to Dennis Schroder's contract situation.

    Advice: The Hawks traded away Jeff Teague in order to give Schroder the keys to the offense, and even though they are obviously very high on him, they want to see how he looks as the full-time starter before beginning contract talks. The deadline for an extension is Oct. 31. He is averaging 10.6 points and 5.3 assists in 22.6 minutes through three preseason games. Saturday, 7:53 am
  • Sergio Rodriguez to start at PG Saturday
    Sergio Rodriguez will start at point guard on Saturday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: T.J. McConnell will move to the bench. Jerryd Bayless (wrist) has no timetable to return and his injury could be serious, so the 76ers want to see how Rodriguez looks in the first unit. Through five preseason games he's averaging 5.6 points, 5.6 assists, 2.2 rebounds, 1.0 3-pointer, 1.0 steal and 3.0 turnovers per game. Friday, 10:38 am
  • Gary Harris won't rule out season opener
    Gary Harris (groin) won't rule out playing in the season opener, but added that it's not a target date either.

    Advice: "I’m just going day by day, just trying to get better each day," Harris said. "That’s two weeks down the road: We’ll see. I’m just trying to get better each day." He got up some shots on Thursday and said he felt "fine," but he said that was the first day that he tried to do anything. A return in early November is probably a little more realistic, but savvy fantasy owners shouldn't be afraid to pounce on his discounted price. Friday, 8:45 am
  • Aaron Brooks (knee) ruled out Friday
    Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: He was bothered by a hip injury earlier in preseason, so this is a new concern. Brooks hasn't played well at all with his new team, so he's in danger of losing some minutes to Joe Young. Brooks is not worth targeting in most fantasy leagues. Friday, 8:27 am
  • C.J. Miles, Aaron Brooks ruled out Friday
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) and Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) will not play vs. the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: Miles was listed as doubtful, so the Pacers will hold him out as expected. It doesn't sound serious, so he should be ready for the opener in a couple weeks. Miles averaged 11.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 41 percent shooting last season, but he will have a tough time matching those numbers on a revamped Pacers roster. Friday, 8:25 am
  • Dennis Schroder has best game of month
    Dennis Schroder played 29 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday, totaling 17 points, three rebounds, nine assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's by far his best game with preseason highs in every category except for steals. Schroder only plays 28.8 minutes per game in his six starts last year, but he should be able to clear 30 minutes this year. As long as you're OK with some sub-par shooting, Schroder should be a decent pick in the middle rounds. Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • Schroder, Baze, Korver, Humphries, D12 start
    Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Kyle Korver, Kris Humphries and Dwight Howard will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Head coach Mike Budenholzer said that his starters will play a bit more than the 22-23 minutes they played on Monday night, and that trend should continue as we get closer to the regular season. It'll be interesting to see if Schroder can get things going tonight with a more favorable matchup against the Pistons. Thursday, 1:51 pm
  • C.J. Miles (knee) doubtful Friday vs. Orlando
    C.J. Miles (left knee) sat out Thursday's practice and is doubtful to suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Magic.

    Advice: Miles isn't dealing with anything more than a sore knee, so he should be good to go when the regular season tips. However, his fantasy value is going to be nearly non-existent this season. Thursday, 11:23 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to win in MIL
    Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to win a championship in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Alphabet said he thinks the Bucks have the pieces to build a championship roster and hopes to win (and stay) in Milwaukee for a long time. "I’ve become very attached to Milwaukee," Antetokounmpo said. "The thought that I might not win a championship in my career doesn’t even exist in my mind. I will win at some point! I will do everything to win a championship." The 21-year-old is a triple-double threat on any given night and is worth a first-round pick due to his ability to fill up the stat sheet. Thursday, 6:20 am
  • Shabazz Muhammad sinks 7-of-10 FGs for 18 pts
    Shabazz Muhammad caught fire in the fourth quarter on Wednesday, finishing a 105-88 win vs. the Nuggets with 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

    Advice: Muhammad had a few rough shooting nights to start the preseason, but he looked great tonight. The former lottery pick attacked the basket and showed improved proficiency from deep -- he sank his only 3-point attempt tonight, making him 3-of-6 from that range in the preseason. Playing time will be the biggest challenge for Muhammad, but he'll be a popular pickup if injuries thin out the Wolves' rotation. Wednesday, 7:44 pm
  • Michael Carter-Williams plays 25 minutes
    Michael Carter-Williams (illness) suited up vs. the Pacers and posted 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: MCW's outlook got a bit brighter once Khris Middleton went down, but he's still a deeply flawed fantasy prospect thanks to poor percentages, a lack of 3-pointers, and high turnovers. He's little more than a flier pick in 12-team leagues. Wednesday, 7:23 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo posts 20/6/5 in defeat
    Giannis Antetokounmpo notched 20 points, six assists, five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes during the Bucks' 101-83 loss on Wednesday.

    Advice: Giannis will be a triple-double threat every time he takes the court this season, so get used to these stat-stuffing lines. The absence of Khris Middleton puts even more pressure on Antetokounmpo as the team's de facto leading scorer and point guard, so his usage rate figures to be limitless. Wednesday, 7:21 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (hip) logs 22 minutes off bench
    Aaron Brooks (hip) contributed six points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes off Indy's bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Pacers went on a 33-10 run in the second quarter to blow the game open, and Brooks won't be playing 20+ minutes this year while Jeff Teague is healthy. The career 41.3 percent shooter is a combined 2-of-14 from the field through two preseason games, without a single made 3-pointer. Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • C.J. Miles out, Glenn Robinson likely starts
    C.J. Miles (left knee) will not play on Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Advice: He was questionable to play after shootaround and the Pacers will just keep him out. Miles should see his role change a little this year with the Pacers wanting to go smaller and faster. He's still not worth drafting. Glenn Robinson should get extended run tonight. Wednesday, 3:07 pm
  • C.J. Miles (knee) questionable for Wednesday
    C.J. Miles (sore left knee) is questionable to play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Indiana is hopeful that Miles can get on the court for "some minutes" during Wednesday's game, but if there's any question that his knee is at less than 100 percent, you can bet he'll be taking the night off. Miles won't have much fantasy value at all this year operating as Paul George's backup. Wednesday, 9:11 am
