  • Ty Lawson expects to play 30-40 mins a night
    Ty Lawson said Head Coach Dave Joerger has told him to expect to play 30-40 minutes a night in the first eight games - while Darren Collison serves his suspension.

    Advice: The Kings waived two PG's (Jordan Farmar and Isaiah Cousins) from the roster on Monday, indicating that they have plenty of faith in Lawson running the show until Collision returns. If you drafted Collision, you may want to scoop up Lawson off waivers where available. Lawson might also be an enticing play in Daily Fantasy Leagues early on, depending on his price. 57 minutes ago
  • Isaiah Cousins waived by the Kings
    Isaiah Cousins has been waived by the Kings.

    Advice: Selected by Sacramento out of Oklahoma in the second round (59th overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft, Cousins appeared in two exhibition contests for the Kings, totaling 12 minutes. Cousins will have to pursue opportunities in the D-League or overseas. Today, 2:49 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) to miss a month.
    Philadelphia 76ers guard Jerryd Bayless is likely to miss the first month of the regular season while he recovers from a torn ligament in his left wrist.

    Advice: The team announced last week that Bayless will not have surgery on his wrist, 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 PG. McConnell is expected to be named starter, but they will both likely split minutes fairly evenly. Today, 2:42 pm
  • 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 Shawn Long.
    Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Dailey News is reporting that the Sixers will waive Shawn Long.

    Advice: The Sixers will also waive James Webb III and Cat Barber, according to Pompey's source. Philadelphia holds D-League rights to Webb, Long & Barber. Today, 1:42 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
  • The Thunder have waiver G Ronnie Price
    The Thunder have waived G Ronnie Price.

    Advice: Price had two years worth of guaranteed money on his current contract ($2.6 million this season and $2.4 million in 2017-18), which the Thunder have decided to eat. OKC opted to keep rookie Semaj Christon as Russell Westbrook's primary backup. Price may be of interest to teams in need of a veteran point guard. Today, 11:46 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
  • Kay Felder (concussion) out for season opener
    Kay Felder (concussion) has been ruled out for Cleveland's regular-season opener against New York on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Felder out, Kyrie Irving could be forced into heavy minutes with Iman Shumpert earning some extended minutes as his backup. The Cavs are reportedly looking to add another backup point guard to the roster, an indication that Tyronn Lue isn't ready to give meaningful minutes to Cleveland's rookie. Today, 10:32 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Kay Felder enters the concussion protocol
    Kay Felder has entered the league's concussion protocol.

    Advice: This puts his status for opening night in question and it could leave the Cavs with just one point guard in Kyrie Irving. If Felder can't go, we should see Iman Shumpert and possibly Jordan McRae at the one, but it's still too tough to trust them in standard leagues. LeBron James will have additional responsibilities handling the ball. Saturday, 10:59 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Lawson scores five points on 1-of-6 shooting
    Ty Lawson scored five points on 1-of-6 shooting (a 3-pointer) vs. the Clippers on Tuesday, adding four assists, two rebounds, three steals and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The Kings brought him off the bench behind Garrett Temple, so maybe he's not a lock to open the season as the starter -- Darren Collison is suspended for the first eight games. Lawson is already on thin ice with the Kings after missing a team flight on Friday, but the Kings aren't going to suspend him for now. A timeshare right out of the gate with Temple is possible, so this is a tricky situation for fantasy owners. Tuesday, 9:46 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
  • 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
  • Ty Lawson won't face suspension from Kings
    Ty Lawson won't face a suspension by the Kings, according to general manager Vlade Divac.

    Advice: Lawson met with Divac after missing a team flight on Friday, but Vlade said the team won't suspend Lawson. "We handle it inside [the] house," Divac said. "He got the message, and we move forward." Lawson is likely to start the first eight games of the season with Darren Collison suspended, but he'll ned to be on his best behavior going forward. Tuesday, 5:56 am
  • Ty Lawson still with the Kings
    Ty Lawson was at practice on Monday.

    Advice: So apparently the Kings didn't cut him. A video of Lawson, Ben McLemore and Willie Cauley-Stein popped up of the three partying in Las Vegas on Thursday night. Lawson then missed the team flight on Friday, but his agent said the guard received permission -- McLemore and Cauley-Stein made the flight. Lawson will have to be on his best behavior going forward. Oct 17, 1:53 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
  • Kay Felder has won the backup PG role
    Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue confirmed that Kay Felder has won the backup point guard role.

    Advice: "Right now we'll say he's going to be our backup point guard for right now," Lue said. However, Lue also added that the plan for running the offense when Kyrie Irving is out is to "do it by committee," meaning LeBron James and Iman Shumpert will handle the ball as well. Felder has looked great in the preseason and has scored 14 or more points in three out of five games, but his value will be limited while Irving is healthy. Oct 17, 7:33 am
  • Ronnie Price (concussion) scoreless in return
    Ronnie Price (concussion) played just nine minutes on Sunday, finishing scoreless with three assists, two rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: It's nice to see the veteran back in action and his health could be important with Cameron Payne (foot) facing an indefinite absence. Considering how many minutes Russell Westbrook is expected to play this season, however, there's no reason to touch Price in standard leagues. Oct 16, 6:37 pm
  • Ty Lawson in trouble with Kings management
    Ty Lawson reportedly "must explain himself" to Kings officials after missing the team's flight to Kentucky on Friday.

    Advice: Lawson reportedly showed up late to shootaround, and then didn't even show up for the trip to Lexington, and it doesn't sound like this was an excused absence. Lawson has been playing well throughout the preseason, but the off-court issues continue to be a constant stumbling block for the talented point guard. He could open the year as Sacramento's starting PG while Darren Collison serves his suspension, but it's unclear what his role will look like when the team is at full strength. Lawson's also playing on a non-guaranteed deal, so the Kings could outright cut him if they don't like his reasoning for missing Friday's flight. Oct 16, 11:21 am
  • Ronnie Price (concussion) will play Sunday
    Ronnie Price (concussion) will be available on Sunday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: He was able to get up some shots at Saturday's practice and is not expected to have any limitations. Price will be the backup PG on opening night, but won't have any fantasy value while Russell Westbrook is active. Oct 16, 10:45 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
  • Ty Lawson out for personal reasons
    Ty Lawson (personal) will not play on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear what the personal reasons are right now. Lawson is in line to be the starting point guard on opening night with Darren Collison suspended for the first eight games. Oct 15, 4:29 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
  • Ronnie Price (concussion) limited in practice
    Ronnie Price (concussion) was limited to light shooting in Saturday's practice.

    Advice: It was Price's first day back since sustaining his concussion, so this is just standard operating procedure. Price did not take any contact and will progress in accordance with how he feels. Assuming he doesn't summer any setbacks, the veteran point guard should be ready well in advance of opening night. Oct 15, 11:30 am
  • Kay Felder scores 14 with seven dimes
    Kay Felder scored 14 points with three rebounds, seven assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: The Cavs still haven't figured out their backup point guard spot, which could be a big issue for them given Kyrie Irving's injury history. Felder is a joy to watch for his top-notch athleticism and we could see him make a splash at some point this year. Although, that would change if the Cavs sign someone like Mario Chalmers (Achilles). Oct 14, 7:27 pm
  • Kay, McRae, Liggins, Holmes & Cory J starting
    Kay Felder, Jordan McRae, DeAndre Liggins, Cory Jefferson and Jonathan Holmes will start against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: Hey, at least there should be a whole lot of Felder and McRae. Oct 14, 4:21 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
  • Brown says Bayless doesn't have a timetable
    76ers coach Brett Brown said that Jerryd Bayless (wrist) doesn't have a timetable to return.

    Advice: "It's still uncertain," Brown said. "I think soon we are going to make some level of an announcement. But we are still trying to learn everything we can and do this with him out of respect for his future, his current health." Bayless admitted that the results of last week's MRI were not good, and the 76ers are expected to run more tests in the coming days. The 76ers could add another PG to the mix, but right now it appears that T.J. McConnell will start with Sergio Rodriguez backing him up. Oct 14, 6:29 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
