  • Detroit has claimed G Beno Udrih off waivers.
    Detroit has claimed Miami guard Beno Udrih off waivers, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

    Advice: The Pistons have been looking for a veteran PG ever since they found out that Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) would miss the fist 4-6 weeks of the season. Udrih likely won't have much fantasy value, as he'll serve as Ish Smith's backup until Jackson returns. For those that drafted Ish Smith hoping to get 15+ solid games out of him, his value takes a bit of a hit, as he'll likely lose some playing time to Udrih. 35 minutes ago

  • The Sixers have waived G Brandon Paul.
    The Sixers have waived G Brandon Paul.

    Advice: Paul was always a long shot to make the Sixers final roster. He'll likely be assigned to the Sixers D-League affiliate once he clears waivers. Today, 1:59 pm
  • Sixers will waive G Anthony Barber
    Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Dailey News is reporting that the Sixers will waive G Anthony "Cat" Barber.

    Advice: The Sixers will also waive James Webb III and Shawn Long, according to Pompey's source. Philadelphia holds D-League rights to Webb, Long & Barber. Today, 1:46 pm
  • Sixers will waive F James Webb III
    Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Dailey News is reporting that the Sixers will waive F James Webb.

    Advice: The Sixers will also waive Shawn Long and Cat Barber, according to Pompey's source. Philadelphia holds D-League rights to Webb, Long & Barber. Today, 1:45 pm
  • Tony Allen expected to play opener.
    Tony Allen (knee) is expected to play in Memphis' season opener on Wednesday.

    Advice: Allen missed all six of the Grizzlies preseason games due to knee soreness, but its is obviously an encouraging sign that he is ready to roll for the season opener on Wednesday night. Today, 12:34 pm
  • Marc Gasol to be a minutes restriction.
    Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) will be on a "relative minutes restriction" as the season starts.

    Advice: Michael Wallace of reported that Coach Fizdale will look to limit Gasol's minutes early on this season. It remains unclear how limiting the restriction will be, and how long it will last. It is a fluid situation and should be monitored as such. Stay tuned... Today, 12:27 pm
  • Lakers waive F Anthony Brown
    The Lakers have waived F Anthony Brown.

    Advice: The Lakers roster now stands at 15, meaning that Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson made the final cut. Brown is likely bound for the D-League. Today, 11:08 am
  • Aaron Brooks has been practicing in full
    Aaron Brooks (knee) has been practicing in full over the past two days, but he remains "a ways away" from where he'd like to be.

    Advice: Brooks is going to be used sparingly behind Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis this season, so there's no reason to pay him any mind in any scenario. Today, 10:58 am
  • Casey considering starting Patrick Patterson
    Dwane Casey said that he currently views Patrick Patterson as the "leading candidate" to start sans Jared Sullinger (foot surgery).

    Advice: While Casey tabbed Patterson as the leading candidate, he also acknowledged that he go back and forth between starting Patterson or rookie Pascal Siakam based on the matchup, but either way Patterson figures to earn the bulk of the power forward minutes in Sullinger's absence. That being said, aside from hitting a few triples, Patterson rarely brings much else to the box score, so he's more of a 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Today, 10:51 am
  • Derrick Rose won't have mins limit in opener
    Jeff Hornacek said he doesn't plan on imposing a minutes limit on Derrick Rose for the Knicks' regular-season opener against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rose will open the year as New York's starting point guard, and it'll be interesting to see just how long those troublesome knees hold up. His upside isn't all that high anymore, so he's not worth much more than a late-round selection on draft day. Today, 10:29 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. Today, 10:11 am
  • Wayne Ellington (quad) limited at practice
    Wayne Ellington (right quad) was limited during Monday's practice and is looking doubtful for Miami's regular-season opener against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ellington won't have a significant role in Miami's rotation, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the fantasy landscape at all. Perhaps Rodney McGruder could see limited minutes in the rotation sans Ellington, but that's about it. Today, 10:04 am
  • Josh Richardson (knee) out for season opener
    Josh Richardson (right knee) has been ruled out for Miami's regular-season opener against Orlando.

    Advice: Richardson still hasn't been able to take contact, and never really had a chance of being ready for opening night, but his absence shouldn't extend too far into the regular-season. He said that he's no longer experiencing pain in his injured right now, although it does get a little sore after workouts. Richardson has a decent shot of starting at the two-spot for Miami once he's fully up to speed, so he's someone to consider swooping up with a late-round pick in leagues that offer an IR-spot. Today, 9:53 am
  • Pelicans waive Alonzo Gee
    The Pelicans have waived Alonzo Gee.

    Advice: The final decision came down to Gee vs. Lance Stephenson, but with Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (personal) set to begin the year on the sidelines, Stephenson's playmaking ability became a need and likely put him over the top. Gee will be paid $1.2 million to not play for New Orleans this season, but he should be able to latch on with another team. He's not a fantasy option in any scenario, though. Today, 7:47 am
  • Eric Gordon will start at SG on opening night
    Eric Gordon will officially be Houston's starting two-guard on opening night with Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) unavailable.

    Advice: "With me starting, I’m going to have to guard mostly the top perimeter guy and that’s fine," Gordon said. "They will have to guard me also." Beverley is going to miss at least the first 20 games of the season, and he'll likely be brought along slowly once healthy, so it looks like the starting two-spot in Houston is Gordon's to lose. While his injury history certainly is concerning, there's essentially no risk involved in targeting him as you can swoop him up during the final few rounds on draft day. Today, 6:25 am
  • Eric Gordon scrimmages with starters Sunday
    Eric Gordon ran with the starting unit during Sunday's scrimmage.

    Advice: With Patrick Beverley (knee) set to spend the first 4-6 weeks of the year on the sidelines, Gordon looks locked and loaded as Houston's starting two-guard. While he does seem to always suffer a long-term injury at some point, he still makes for a fine late-round selection as a guy with mid-round upside. Yesterday, 1:28 pm
  • Fizdale says Allen has made progress
    Memphis coach David Fizdale said that Tony Allen's knee has made progress.

    Advice: "He looked good, and I think he’s getting close," Fizdale said. "I don’t want to say there’s guarantees, but he went through the whole practice today and all of yesterday. We don’t go for continuous long stretches of time, but he’s looking better, and I’m hoping we get him back soon." Allen returned to practice this week after missing all six preseason games due to knee soreness, but he's hopeful to play in the season opener. Fizdale confirmed that he will start at SG this season and the Grizzlies even let him run the point in training camp, so the minutes should be there. If you need steals, Allen's worth a look. Yesterday, 7:41 am
  • Hornacek pleased with Rose's conditioning
    Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek is pleased with where Derrick Rose's conditioning is despite the point guard missing so much time in the preseason.

    Advice: "He looked good," Hornacek said. "We did some up and down. His conditioning was good. He’s picking up on the stuff that we’re doing pretty well. It looked good today for being off a couple of weeks." Rose said that he feels "good," but that's what we expect all players to say in this situation. Additionally, the former MVP said that the Knicks will play an "up-tempo type game" and will only use the triangle "on out of-of-bounds plays." Saturday, 2:59 pm
  • Wayne Ellington (quad) uncertain for opener
    Wayne Ellington (right quad contusion) is questionable for opening night.

    Advice: It's a wait-and-see approach with the veteran shooting guard, who just needs to see how the injury responds before assessing it further. If he's unable to get out there for the opener, Rodney McGruder would likely be in the rotation with Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson and Dion Waiters. Saturday, 2:56 pm
  • Report: Gee vs. Stephenson for final spot
    The Pelicans are expected to choose between Alonzo Gee and Lance Stephenson for the final roster spot.

    Advice: Given the injuries that New Orleans has in its backcourt, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Pelicans opt for Born Ready's playmaking over keeping Gee. We'll have our answer one way or another no later than Monday afternoon. Saturday, 2:01 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) hopeful for season opener
    Tony Allen (knee) returned to a full practice on Saturday and is hopeful to play in the season opener.

    Advice: Allen did admit that he does need to do a better job of listening to his body, but he's got a well-established reputation for playing through anything and everything he can. We don't expect that to change anytime soon, so if he can play on opening night, we expect him to be out there. The Grizzlies will determine his status based on the amount of residual swelling he has, so expect multiple updates prior to Wednesday. If he can't go, Memphis is going to have to get creative with its starting lineup given Chandler Parsons (knee surgery) remains a major question mark. Saturday, 1:47 pm
  • Heat officially waive PG Beno Udrih
    Updating a previous item, Heat waive PG Beno Udrih.

    Advice: Udrih got a $1.5M gift from the organization to do absolutely nothing. While he could resurface elsewhere as an insurance policy at point guard, Udrih is going to have a tough time generating an NBA market moving forward. Saturday, 1:32 pm
    Not Active
  • Report: Heat plan to waive vet Beno Udrih
    The Heat are expected to waive veteran PG Beno Udrih, a source told Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    Advice: This means Rodney McGruder's roster spot is locked up. Udrih may resurface as a third-string PG elsewhere (Sixers, anyone?), but it's clear his best days are behind him. Saturday, 11:31 am
    Not Active
  • Derrick Rose returns to practice Saturday
    Derrick Rose joined the Knicks at practice on Saturday.

    Advice: He was cleared of all charges in a civil rape case last week. Rose missed a lot of time during the preseason because of the case and will need some time to get his legs under him again. Brandon Jennings looked solid in the preseason, but the starting job is still Rose's to lose. At best, he's a late-round pick in standard leagues. Saturday, 10:14 am
  • Josh Richardson (knee) unsure of return
    Josh Richardson (knee) said he's not sure when he will be able to take contact in practice.

    Advice: "They haven’t really told me," Richardson said. "They’re just trying to get me back on the court working a little bit." He's been on the shelf for seven weeks and was originally given a 6-8 week timetable, but his status for the season opener doesn't look good. Once healthy, Richardson should be able to win the starting SG role and is worth a stash if you have some dead weight on your roster. Saturday, 8:08 am
  • MDA wants Gordon or Harden on court
    Coach Mike D'Antoni wants James Harden or Eric Gordon on the floor at all times while Patrick Beverley (knee) is out.

    Advice: We haven't seen Gordon play on the ball with great regularity since his Clippers days, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Following the Rockets game, Gordon was actually first in offensive rating this preseason and the Rockets offense has been a monster this month. Gordon has risk, but he has big upside too. Friday, 9:30 pm
  • Wayne Ellington suffers quad contusion
    Wayne Ellington suffered a right quad contusion on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra said the bruise is decent and said he won't do much in the next few days. Ellington started tonight and has been a bit of a place holder for Josh Richardson (knee). He looks like he has a decent chance to make the team, but he's not a lock for minutes once Richardson is good to go. Friday, 5:48 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
  • 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. Friday, 1:47 pm
  • 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. Friday, 9:16 am
  • Derrick Rose won't play Thursday vs. Brooklyn
    Derrick Rose will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Rose never had a realistic shot of suiting up for Thursday's game as Jeff Hornacek has said that he wants Rose to go through some practices before he takes the court. He'll likely be the Knicks starting point guard to open the year, but it's tough to justify spending anything more than a late-round selection on the former-MVP. Thursday, 3:43 pm
  • Josh Richardson out Thursday vs Hornets
    Josh Richardson (knee) will miss Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: This doesn't come as a huge surprise as Richardson isn't expected to be ready for opening night, but his absence isn't expected to extend too far into the regular season. He'll serve as Miami's starting shooting guard upon his return, so he's worth a late-round pick in standard league drafts. Thursday, 7:57 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 Rose unlikely to play against Nets
    Derrick Rose is unlikely to play against the Nets on Friday, according to head coach Jeff Hornacek.

    Advice: Rose's civil trial has concluded, but Hornacek said he'd need to beg to get into Friday's preseason finale. While it doesn't look like we'll see Rose in the preseason, he'll open the regular season as the Knicks starting point guard and is worth a look in the later rounds of standard fantasy drafts. Thursday, 7:01 am
  • 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
  • Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) plays 20 minutes
    Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) played 20 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, turning in six points on 2-of-10 shooting, four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Gasol's playing time was actually more than anticipated given his recent injury. "Timing ... you don't want to go 10-12 days without playing," Gasol said, explaining the decision to suit up at less than 100 percent. The good news is that he didn't injure his surgically-repaired bone, so this shouldn't have lasting implications in the regular season. Memphis will be cautious with him all year, including occasional DNP-CDs, but owners can expect him to be ready for opening night. Wednesday, 8:00 pm
  • Patrick Patterson quiet in 20 mins off bench
    Patrick Patterson was quiet in 20 bench minutes on Wednesday, chipping in three points on 1-of-5 shooting with two assists and one rebound.

    Advice: Jared Sullinger (foot) wasn't active tonight, but it was Pascal Siakam who took his spot in the starting lineup. This was likely just an attempt to evaluate the rookie, while keeping Patterson in his usual reserve role, but it's another reminder that his outlook is bleak with Sullinger in Toronto. Wednesday, 7:08 pm
  • Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) will start Wednesday
    Marc Gasol (ankle, foot) will start against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: He tweeted out "it's all good baby baby" on Saturday night, so he certainly wasn't kidding. Gasol said he wants to build his conditioning, so it doesn't sound like he will be limited. His foot surgery last season caused a bit of a scare over the weekend, but this is something to watch. If Gasol can stay healthy, the sky is the limit in an up-tempo Memphis offense. Wednesday, 3:41 pm
  • Derrick Rose cleared of all charges in case
    Derrick Rose has been cleared of all charges in a civil rape case.

    Advice: The two codefendants were also cleared in this case. The case was in California and Rose still will not make it in time for Thursday's game. Coach Jeff Hornacek said he'd like to see Rose practice before he gets out on the court. For now, it looks like he should be ready to start the season. Wednesday, 1:32 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
  • 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
  • Derrick Rose won't play until opening night
    Derrick Rose will miss the Knicks final two preseason games due to the civil suit taking place in Los Angeles.

    Advice: Jeff Hornacek said that he has kept in communication with Rose, and that as long as he can get back to New York for a few practices prior to opening night, he'll be the Knicks' starting point guard when the regular season tips. The jury in Rose's civil suit is expected to reach a verdict by Wednesday, so we'll be watching for details on that. Rose is three knee surgeries and four years removed from his MVP season, and there are higher upside guys you can snag towards the final rounds. Wednesday, 10:10 am
  • Derrick Rose doubtful Wednesday vs. Boston
    Derrick Rose is still in Los Angeles for jury deliberations, and is doubtful to play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Celtics.

    Advice: While Rose could perhaps catch a flight to New York once the jury reaches their verdict, it seems unlikely that he'll be on the floor Wednesday night. Additionally, Jeff Hornacek said that if Rose makes it to New York by Thursday, he wouldn't want him on the bench Brooklyn and would rather go over things one-on-one with him at the practice facility on Friday. The civil suit against Rose should reach its conclusion Wednesday, although a punitive damage hearing could keep him in L.A. Wednesday, 8:32 am
  • Tony Allen (knee) ruled out Wednesday
    Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: It's the preseason finale, so the Grizzlies will continue resting him with the regular season just a week away. He's expected to start at SG, but he should be considered questionable for the season opener. Tuesday, 4:10 pm
  • Josh Richardson (knee) out Tuesday vs. ORL
    Josh Richardson (knee) will not play in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Magic.

    Advice: Richardson has been slowly ramping up his activities, but he still hasn't been cleared for contact, so it's looking like he might not be ready for opening night. Still, his absence shouldn't extend too far into the regular season, and he does present enough upside to warrant a stash in standard leagues as he'll likely be Miami's starting two-guard once he's fully up to speed. Tuesday, 3:07 pm
  • Derrick Rose will start if he can practice
    Derrick Rose will be the Knicks starting point guard on opening night if he's able to practice before then.

    Advice: Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said he will start Rose if the point guard is able to attend all practices after the preseason. Rose is still dealing with his civil trial in Los Angeles, so it's unclear if he'll be able to live up to Hornacek's expectations. Brandon Jennings will start and see extra minutes if Rose is unable to begin the season as the Knicks starter. Tuesday, 10:48 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
  • Josh Richardson able to do non-contact work
    Josh Richardson (knee) was able to go through non-contact portions of practice on Monday.

    Advice: Head coach Erik Spoelstra said RIcharson was "able to get out there and do a decent portion of the non-contact work," but Miami isn't looking to rush Richardson back. While it looks like Richardson isn't going to be ready for the start of the regular season, he's worth a stash in standard leagues as the favorite to start at SG. Tuesday, 7:00 am
  • Beno Udrih sitting on roster bubble
    Beno Udrih (back) is on the Heat's roster bubble, according to head coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Advice: The Heat will have to decide between Udrih and Briante Weber, and Spoelstra isn't looking forward to making the decision. "Well, they’re two totally different players," Spoelstra said of Udrih and Weber. "Bri is dynamic defensively. There’s so many unpredictable things that are disruptive, it’s uncanny. Offensively, he brings a lot of energy, and he’s developing the rest of his game." While the 34-year-old could still end up on Miami's final roster, he won't have any fantasy value in standard leagues this season. Tuesday, 6:07 am
    Not Active
  • 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
  • Derrick Rose not practicing enough
    Coach Jeff Hornacek said he is unsure if he'll play Derrick Rose without practicing in two weeks.

    Advice: Hornacek is talking about games this week, so Rose is still likely for the opener. Due to his civil trial in Los Angeles, the team could send an assistant out to help get him ready to go. If he continues to miss time, there will be more minutes for Brandon Jennings. Rose isn't a strong fantasy target. Oct 17, 11:35 am
  • Josh Richardson unlikely for season opener
    Josh Richardson (knee) is not expected to be ready in time for the season opener.

    Advice: He went through most of the non-contact work in Monday's practice, but the Heat probably don't want to rush him back. Richardson is the favorite to start at SG once he's fully healthy and he has plenty of upside, but he's just a stash in standard leagues until we hear a concrete timetable. Oct 17, 11:02 am
  • MRI reveals a bone bruise for Marc Gasol
    An MRI on Marc Gasol's right foot revealed a bone bruise and it's not the same bone that he had surgery on.

    Advice: This is very good news. He will sit out of Wednesday's preseason finale as planned, but it sounds like he's probable for opening night. Gasol is taking more 3-pointers these days which his fantasy owners will love, but he will also have some maintenance days this season and he's a little riskier than usual because of the durability concerns. For what it's worth, Gasol did some conditioning work and got some shots up as well on Monday. Oct 17, 10:50 am
  • Marc Gasol (right ankle) says he's fine
    Marc Gasol (ankle) said he was fine and there is no reason to worry.

    Advice: It sounds like it was just a scare. He was dealing with some soreness earlier in the day and it loosened up during the game. Gasol wasn't icing his foot and didn't show much concern. In fact, he even tweeted out a Notorious BIG GIF saying "it's all good baby baby." Even though this was still just a scare, we'd be a little apprehensive about drafting him until he slides a tad. Oct 15, 9:57 pm
  • Update: Marc Gasol has a sore right ankle
    Marc Gasol is dealing with a sore right ankle on Saturday.

    Advice: He's obviously not out of the woods yet and the Grizzlies are still likely going to re-evaluate him. Tony Allen left the bench to go and check on Gasol, but Allen did return to the sidelines. Expect another update on Gasol tonight at some point. For now, fantasy owners shouldn't be aggressive on Gasol in drafts until he gets the all clear. Even if he is cleared, we're still going to bump him down on our draft boards. Oct 15, 7:02 pm
  • Marc Gasol (right foot) to the locker room
    Marc Gasol took off his right shoe and went to the locker room on Saturday.

    Advice: Yes, this is the same right foot Gasol needed surgery on earlier this calendar year. He'll almost certainly get an X-ray in the near future and should be re-evaluated. For now, all we can do is sit tight. Oct 15, 6:56 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. Oct 15, 3:35 pm
  • Josh Richardson (knee surgery) out Saturday
    Josh Richardson (right knee surgery) will not play on Saturday vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: It's just a reminder here. Richardson is targeting the season opener, but we should have a better idea if that's realistic next week when the Heat begin their final stretch of preseason play. Oct 15, 3:06 pm
  • Josh McRoberts (foot) remains out on Saturday
    Josh McRoberts (stress reaction in left foot) remains sidelined for Saturday's preseason contest vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Remember when McBob was once seen as the crucial cog that would keep LeBron in Miami? Good times. Oct 15, 3:04 pm
  • Tony Allen is still out
    Tony Allen (knee) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies are likely going to hold him out for a little while longer. Given his injury history, there's little reason to draft The Grindfather almost anywhere. Oct 14, 3:37 pm
  • Pat Patterson gets the night off
    Patrick Patterson (rest) will not play on Friday.

    Advice: We'll get to see a ton of Pascal Siakam at the four tonight. Patterson's role should be similar as a bench big man. Oct 14, 3:06 pm
  • 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. Oct 14, 8:27 am
  • Marc Gasol scores 21, makes three treys
    Marc Gasol made three 3-pointers during his 21-point game on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Advice: Those three treys were more than he made in all of last season. The talk of Gasol adding a 3-pointer seems like it's legitimate, but he is still likely to just be in the 0.2-0.7 per game range for makes. While he does have renewed upside with coach David Fizdale, Gasol's foot injury from last year is the biggest concern here. He's in the mix as a high-reward pick in the fifth round. Oct 13, 9:06 pm
