  • Pistons are waiving Ray McCallum
    The Pistons will waive G Ray McCallum, according to Vincent Ellis of The Detroit Free Press.

    Advice: McCallum will be waived in order to clear a roster spot for Beno Udrih, whom the Pistons just grabbed off waivers after he was cut by Miami. Yesterday, 3:02 pm

  • The Cavs have waived F Dahntay Jones.
    The Cavs have waived G/F Dahntay Jones.

    Advice: Jones appeared in two preseason games for the Cavs, averaging 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 20.4 minutes. Jones also appeared in 15 postseason games for the Cavs last season. Yesterday, 2:58 pm
  • Kings have waived G Jordan Farmar
    Kings waive G Jordan Farmar.

    Advice: Farmar averaged 6.5 points (.471 FG%, 5-11 3pt, .833 FT%), 1.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in four preseason contests with Sacramento. With both Farmar and Isaiah Cousins both waived today, Ty Lawson is the only true PG left on the Kings roster and will likely see extended minutes while Darren Collison is out. Yesterday, 2:47 pm

  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) to miss a month.
    Jerryd Bayless (left wrist) is likely to miss the first month of the season.

    Advice: The team announced last week that Bayless will not have surgery on his torn wrist ligament, but did not put a timetable on the injury. ESPN's Jeff Goodman is reporting that Bayless will be sidelined for the first month of the season. With Bayless on the shelf, T.J. McConnell and Sergio Rodriguez will split time at point guard. McConnell is expected to be named starter, but they will both likely split minutes fairly evenly. Yesterday, 2:42 pm
  • The Sixers have waived G Brandon Paul.
    The Sixers waive 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. Yesterday, 1:59 pm

  • G John Jenkins will make final 15-man roster.
    The Suns will keep John Jenkins on the opening night roster.

    Advice: That will guarantee his $1.05 million salary for the season. Jenkins made the final roster spot over Archie Goodwin, who the Suns waived at Monday's deadline. The Suns are loaded with plenty of guard depth, so it is highly unlikely Jenkins has any fantasy value this season. Yesterday, 1:55 pm
  • Report: The Suns have waived Archie Goodwin
    The Suns will waive G Archie Goodwin, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

    Advice: It is arguably the most surprising move of the day. Goodwin was a first-round pick back in the 2013 draft and is still just 22 years old. He averaged 8.9 points in 19.5 minutes for the Suns last season. He even started 13 games for Phoenix, and averaged 15.9 points and 4.4 assists in those 13 contests. He had one year left of guaranteed money on his contract worth $2.1 million. There are some obvious flaws in his game, especially his career 3-point percentage currently sits at just 22.7 percent. On the other hand, he has shown flashes of incredible athleticism and talent. It is safe to assume he'll draw plenty of interest from around the league and likely won't clear waivers. Yesterday, 1:15 pm

  • Marc Gasol to be on 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... Yesterday, 12:27 pm
  • 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. Yesterday, 11:04 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. Yesterday, 10:29 am
  • Jared Sullinger looking at 2-3 month absence
    Jared Sullinger is expected to miss roughly the next 2-3 months of action as he recovers from foot surgery, according to Raptors' GM Masai Ujiri.

    Advice: While Ujiri acknowledged that there's a chance Sullinger can beat that timetable, that seems like a very unlikely scenario given how difficult the recovery process can be for big men coming back from foot surgery. This timetable would put Sullinger back on the court by December in a best-case scenario, but he'll more than likely be brought along very slowly once he is cleared for contact. Even in leagues with an IR-spot, it's tough to hang on to Sullinger as he was only a 10th round guy last year. Pascal Siakam will have the opportunity to start in Sullinger's absence, but Patrick Patterson and DeMarre Carroll will see the biggest boost in value. Yesterday, 10:16 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. Yesterday, 10:11 am
  • Rockets waive Gary Payton II
    The Rockets have waived Gary Payton II.

    Advice: He's a talented defensive player, but his struggles on the offensive end partnered with Houston's wealth of options at the point guard position were too much for Payton to overcome. He'll likely head overseas or to the D-League. Yesterday, 8:27 am
    Not Active
  • Pascal Siakam could start sans Sullinger?
    Pascal Siakam will have the opportunity to start for the Raptors with Jared Sullinger (foot surgery) out indefinitely.

    Advice: Patrick Patterson will more than likely be getting the bulk of the power forward minutes, but Dwane Casey prefers to bring him off the bench, so there's a chance the rookie’s development is accelerated with the loss of Sullinger. Siakam did start in Toronto's final four preseason games, and Casey recently praised the rookie for his activity on both ends of the floor. That being said, even as a starter it'll be tough for Siakam to get enough minutes to matter in standard leagues. DeMarre Carroll and Patterson remain the primary beneficiaries sans Sullinger. Yesterday, 8:18 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. Yesterday, 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. Sunday, 1:28 pm
  • Jared Sullinger to undergo foot surgery Mon
    Jared Sullinger will have a screw inserted into the fifth metatarsal of his left foot on Monday to alleviate symptomatic stress reactions, and he will be out indefinitely.

    Advice: This is the same injury that limited Sullinger to just 58 games during the 2014-15 season, although that year he forewent surgery in order to let the injury heal naturally. A surgical procedure typically involves a longer timetable to return, so it's clear that Sullinger is going to miss significant time this year. This removes him from consideration as a late-round target in standard leagues, and it'll be Patrick Patterson and DeMarre Carroll picking up the slack in his absence. Dwane Casey prefers to bring Patterson off the bench, so perhaps Pascal Siakam will start sans Sullinger, although Patterson and Carroll would still earn the majority of the PF minutes. Carroll sees the biggest boost in value here. Sunday, 12:47 pm
  • Jared Sullinger (foot) still being evaluated
    Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Jared Sullinger (foot) is still being evaluated.

    Advice: Casey added that Sullinger's foot just isn't progressing and he's looking increasingly doubtful for the season opener. The Raptors could go with Paskal Siakam in the starting unit, but Patrick Patterson would get a bump in minutes as well. This sounds very concerning for Sullinger and he's not a must-own player while we wait for the official word. Sunday, 10:37 am
  • Cavaliers expected to waive Dahntay Jones
    The Cavaliers are expected to waive Dahntay Jones.

    Advice: This means that DeAndre Liggins will make the 15-man roster. Jones wouldn't have been in the rotation anyways, especially after J.R. Smith finally re-signed. Sunday, 8:28 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
  • Jared Sullinger (foot) doubtful for opener
    Jared Sullinger (left foot soreness) is doubtful to play in Toronto's season opener.

    Advice: Sully went from questionable to doubtful quicker than Drake went from 0 to 100. With Sullinger more than likely out for the inaugural game of the season, Patrick Patterson should see more minutes. Saturday, 2:33 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) hoping to duck surgery
    Jerryd Bayless (left wrist) is hoping to avoid surgery.

    Advice: Bayless will be reevaluated in two weeks, but surgery is not off the table at this time. While the Sixers and the veteran PG are hopeful that rest and rehab will do the trick, it sounds like the possibility for him to be out for an extended period of time is very real. Philadelphia is likely going to expedite its cause to find a third-string point guard behind Sergio Rodriguez and T.J. McConnell. Saturday, 2:24 pm
  • 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
  • Ray McCallum claims final Pistons roster spot
    Ray McCallum has won a spot on Detroit's final roster.

    Advice: McCallum beat out Lorenzo Brown for the third-string point guard spot. He'll begin the season as Ish Smith's backup given Reggie Jackson (knee) will be sidelined to start the campaign. Saturday, 12:32 pm
    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
  • 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
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) out at least 2 weeks
    Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Advice: That officially rules him out to start the season. Bayless will not need surgery at this time and hopefully he can be cleared in two weeks. He has been a bit of a slow healer, so it's possible he misses more time. Sergio Rodriguez and T.J. McConnell will handle the PG minutes. Friday, 3:39 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
  • Lowry, DeMar, DeMarre, Pascal & JV starting
    Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas will start on Friday against the Wizards.

    Advice: The Raptors really like Patrick Patterson in the second unit, so Siakam starting again suggests he might be thrust into the first unit in the games Jared Sullinger (foot) misses. There should also be a good amount of Carroll at the four. Friday, 2:51 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
  • Sullinger out Friday, questionable for opener
    Jared Sullinger (foot) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards and coach Dwane Casey said he could miss the season opener.

    Advice: Not good. Sullinger is still experiencing pain in his foot, so the Raptors are going to take another "look" at it. It sounds like they might run some tests, so we could have another update soon. With Sullinger iffy for the start of the season, Pascal Siakam could be in the rotation and Patrick Patterson will see a bump in minutes. Friday, 8:23 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 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
  • Pascal Siakam scores seven points as starter
    Pascal Siakam was a fill-in starter vs. the Pistons on Wednesday and had seven points (3-of-5 FGs, 1-of-3 FTs), four boards, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Raptors have high hopes for the rookie forward's development, but his near-term fantasy prospects aren't great. He's likely to spend much of his time with the Raptors' D-League affiliate. Wednesday, 7:09 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
  • Lowry, DeMar, Carroll, Siakam & JV starting
    The Raptors will start Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas on Wednesday.

    Advice: Minus Terrence Ross (knee) and Jared Sullinger (foot), the Raptors should have a fairly regular rotation tonight. We'll get to see how Siakam runs with the first unit as he tries to lock up a rotation spot. Wednesday, 3:22 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
  • 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
  • Sullinger (ankle), Ross (knee) out Wednesday
    Jared Sullinger (ankle) and Terrence Ross (knee) have been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Dwane Casey said that he's hopeful that Sullinger will be able to get on the floor for Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards, but he won't push him if he's not ready. As for Ross, Casey doesn't expect him to be available for Toronto's two remaining preseason games. Pattrick Patterson, Pascal Siakam and Bruno Caboclo will continue to pick up some extended minutes with both Sullinger and Ross on the sidelines. Wednesday, 9:30 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
  • McCallum, Brown battling for last roster spot
    Ray McCallum and Lorenzo Brown are battling for the final roster spot in Detroit.

    Advice: "It's just everything," Van Gundy said of the evaluation process. "Every day is one more piece to evaluate on. Like I've said — it's a tough decision. I think they are both NBA players, and I don't think there's any doubt about that. We're lucky to have them and we're lucky to have that decision to make." Van Gundy likely won't make an official decision until Sunday, but neither guy will be worth drafting in most leagues. Wednesday, 9:15 am
    Not Active
  • 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
  • No decision made on treatment for Bayless
    The 76ers are still consulting with medical specialist regarding Jerryd Bayless' left wrist injury.

    Advice: Bayless remains without an official timetable to return, and all we really know at this point is that the results of last week's MRI were not positive, according to Bayless. T.J. McConnell and Sergio Rodriguez will continue to split minutes at the point guard slot while Bayless is sidelined, and it's looking like McConnell could be Philly's starting point guard on opening night. With no definitive timetable on Bayless, he's a bit too risky to draft in standard settings. Wednesday, 7:52 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • John Jenkins goes through scrimmage
    John Jenkins (abdomen) went through a team scrimmage on Monday.

    Advice: He missed two preseason games due to the injury. Jenkins isn't a complete lock to make the roster, so staying healthy in the next week will be big for him. Monday, 1:01 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. Monday, 11:35 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. Monday, 10:50 am
  • Sullinger says his ankle issue isn't serious
    Jared Sullinger isn't sure of his status for the Raptors' final two preseason games, but hinted that the injury isn't serious.

    Advice: Sullinger said that his foot was stepped on during the game against the Warriors and added that he tried to play through it, but the soreness persisted. Since then, the Raptors have been cautious and want to make sure he's 100 percent for the opener. As the starting PF in Toronto, Sully has some late-round appeal in standard leagues. Monday, 10:15 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
  • 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 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
  • Aron Baynes (lower back) out Saturday night
    Aron Baynes (lower back tightness) will not play on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy called the big man the "most game-ready Pistons player," so we're assuming this absence is simply precautionary. Baynes is expected to open the season as Andre Drummond's backup. Oct 15, 1:34 pm
