  • T.J. Warren breaks thumb Wednesday
    Suns rookie forward T.J. Warren suffered a small crack in his left thumb on Wednesday, and has no timetable on a return.

    Advice: This hurts the Suns' in the depth department a bit, but should have no fantasy implications. Rotoworld.com

  • Struggling Matt Barnes goes 0-for-5
    Matt Barnes disastrous preseason continued on Wednesday when he missed all five of his shots to finish with two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Advice: He was 0-for-4 from downtown and has now hit just 3-of-36 shots in the preseason and exactly one 3-pointer. The good news is that he's (hopefully) getting all of this poor shooting out of his system when the games don't count. The bad news is that his confidence simply has to be taking a hit. As long as he's starting at SF for the Clippers, he'll retain his sleeper status. But if he doesn't fix his shot soon, Chris Douglas-Roberts could start to threaten his hold on the job. CDR wasn't great tonight, scoring just three points in 24 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Gerald Green scores 23 off Suns bench
    Gerald Green had 23 points, five rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: He scored 21 on Tuesday, but the odds are stacked against him for heavy minutes. Marcus Morris has played well at small forward, while P.J. Tucker could resume a starting role after he serves a suspension over the first three regular-season games. And any hopes of Green getting big minutes at shooting guard have been crushed by the return of Eric Bledsoe and the arrival of Isaiah Thomas. Green can play, and could still be a sneaky fantasy pick this season, but he's not worth investing in until the very late rounds of drafts, if at all. Rotoworld.com

  • Shabazz Muhammad drops three dimes, 19 points
    Shabazz Muhammad had his best game as a pro on Wednesday against the Bucks during a 110-91 win, scoring 19 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He had just six assists in his 290 minutes last season and only 27 dimes in his 987 minutes at UCLA, so the dimes are the biggest surprise of all. Muhammad is going to be buried on the bench and will have a tough time getting minutes, so he can be ignored while the Wolves are healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:21 pm
  • Gerald Wallace hits 6-of-8 shots in win
    Gerald Wallace finally showed up on Wednesday, hitting 6-of-8 shots for 12 points, five assists and three steals in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: This was the first time he's topped three points in the preseason. The artist formerly known as Crash has been pretty rough to own over the last two seasons, and we see little reason to use a draft pick on him this year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:16 pm
  • Terrence Jones goes off before neck issue
    Terrence Jones went to the locker room on Wednesday due to an apparent neck issue and did not return.

    Advice: It doesn't sound serious, but we'll keep an eye on it. Jones went off before leaving the game, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, four blocks and one 3-pointer. He'll be a key part of the frontcourt rotation and last year's post-break run makes him a terrific target in the middle rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:24 pm
  • Thunder exercise option on Andre Roberson
    The Thunder exercised their third-year option on Andre Roberson.

    Advice: He's going to have a chance to start at shooting guard, but the Thunder won't draw up many plays for him. Unless he gets red hot from 3, fantasy owners can ignore Roberson in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • Perry Jones gets his extension
    The Thunder exercised their fourth-year option on Perry Jones III.

    Advice: It's an obvious move and he'll have his best chance to put up numbers this season. Jones could start at small forward with Kevin Durant (foot) out, which makes sense because he can play the stretch four -- like KD does. He's on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:11 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (eye) doing some workouts
    Kawhi Leonard (eyes) has been working out away from the team and won't be at the AT&T Center on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's questionable to start the year with an eye infection. Most eye infections last 3-5 days, so this is one of the stranger developments of the preseason. Still, Leonard should be bumped down draft boards after turning in top-10 value after the break last season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:20 pm
  • Corey Brewer getting some rest on Wed.
    Corey Brewer will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's likely just getting some rest. Brewer is not very effective in halfcourt sets, so it's hard to imagine him thriving with Kevin Love out of the picture. He's not worth drafting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:57 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins (back) will not play on Wed.
    Andrew Wiggins (back) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a lower back contusion and he should be ready to start the season. Wiggins' exact role is unclear, but considering how few playmakers the Wolves have on offense, you'd think he gets his chances to score. If you want him, you can probably look to grab him around pick 70, but there are some more proven studs at that ADP. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Mike Miller in shooting slump this preseason
    Cavs coach David Blatt attributed Mike Miller's preseason shooting slump to the second-unit players he's shared the court with.

    Advice: "We didn't have a lot of opportunities to put Mike on the floor with the kind of lineups that are good for him," said Blatt. "Mike obviously is best for him when he's on the floor with a lot of the creative players so he can spot-up and do what he does best." Given the Cavs' depth on the wings, Miller's fantasy value is strictly limited to a handful of 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:37 am
  • Shawn Marion expected to start at SF on Wed.
    Shawn Marion is expected to start at SF on Wednesday, with LeBron James getting a scheduled day of rest.

    Advice: The 15-year veteran produced to the tune of 10.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals last year with Dallas, but he also averaged 32 minutes per game. His minutes will take a major hit behind LeBron James in Cleveland, dooming him to irrelevance in standard fantasy leagues. Just make a note that he'll likely start at SF if anything happens to LeBron. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:52 am
  • Alonzo Gee makes Nuggets' reg. season roster
    Alonzo Gee has made the Nuggets' regular season roster after 3.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 16 minutes per game during the preseason.

    Advice: Gee is third on the depth chart at SF, behind Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, and he may not even crack the rotation during the regular season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:57 am
  • Nuggets waive F Quincy Miller
    The Nuggets released F Quincy Miller on Tuesday.

    Advice: His deal became partially-guaranteed last April but that wasn't enough incentive for Denver to keep him now that Danilo Gallinari (knee) is healthy and starting ahead of Wilson Chandler at SF. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:52 am
  • Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) returns Tuesday
    Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) returned to action on Tuesday with six points, one rebound and one steal in 18 minutes off the Wolves' bench.

    Advice: Muhammad reported to training camp in great shape this year, after losing weight at the Wolves' request, but there's too much competition for minutes to expect him to hold fantasy value. In addition to veterans Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger, Shabazz is battling young guys like Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:40 am
  • T.J. Warren (thumb) re-evaluated on Wednesday
    Suns rookie T.J. Warren hurt his left thumb during Tuesday's game and he'll be re-examined on Wednesday.

    Advice: His thumb got caught in one of the Lakers jerseys, leaving his status uncertain for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers. The injury doesn't sound serious, but regardless of the diagnosis it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out until Friday's finale as a precaution. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:43 pm
  • Matt Barnes shooting 3-of-31 this preseason
    Matt Barnes' preseason doldrums continued on Tuesday, as he scored three points on 1-of-7 shooting with four assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: The defensive stats are nice but his shooting slump is out of control. He's now a combined 3-of-31 from the field this preseason, including 1-of-18 from downtown. Chris Douglas-Roberts is a looming threat to Barnes' playing time at SF, but he's still worth a flier pick for his sneaky across-the-board contributions. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:32 pm
  • Gerald Green drops 21 points in 20 minutes
    Gerald Green poured in 21 points in just 20 minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, making 5-of-15 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with four 3-pointers, one rebound, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Green said recently that he anticipates less playing time this year, and that his scoring will fluctuate from night to night depending upon matchups. He's not worth owning unless you're in need of a points-and-3s specialist. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:03 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins unlikely to play Wednesday
    Andrew Wiggins is unlikely to play on Wednesday due to swelling after a hard fall in Sunday's exhibition.

    Advice: Wiggins' backside swelled up overnight but it doesn't sound serious and he should be considered day-to-day. Whether or not he's in the starting lineup on opening night, Wiggins should work his way into a fantasy-worthy role before long. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:40 pm
  • Terrence Jones struggles again in start
    Terrence Jones hit just 2-of-9 shots for seven points, eight rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in 28 minutes and a start on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's been highly disappointing this preseason, but at least he started and got the minutes tonight. We still think the starting job is his on opening night, but we have cooled a bit on him. He's struggled thus far and Kevin McHale seems to like Donatas Motiejunas a little too much. But for now, Jones still looks like the starter, and could immediately start playing better once the games count. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:10 pm
  • Perry Jones scores 20 off OKC bench
    Perry Jones came off the bench again on Tuesday and hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, four rebounds and an assist.

    Advice: He's still battling for the starting SF job in the absence of Kevin Durant (broken foot), but it's also possible that Anthony Morrow has won the job. Either way, Jones should get a lot of run off the bench and is worth a late look in most fantasy leagues, along with Morrow. Jones hit just 6-of-11 free throws tonight, which is something to keep an eye on if you're thinking about drafting him. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:07 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins will not play on Tuesday
    Andrew Wiggins will not play on Tuesday after taking a hard fall on his backside in his last game.

    Advice: "He's sore...at this point he's probably 50-50," Flip Saunders said. Corey Brewer will start in his place, while Wiggins should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:05 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad expected to play Tuesday
    Shabazz Muhammad (achilles) is expected to play in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Muhammad has only played one game during the preseason, so it will be good to see him back on the court for the first time since October 7. While Muhammad should see minutes at both forward spots this year, his paltry stats don't warrant fantasy consideration outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:40 am
  • Terrence Jones putting in extra work
    Terrence Jones is putting in extra work after practice with Donatas Motiejunas.

    Advice: Jones and Motiejunas have assigned themselves a post-practice routine that they hope will take their games to another level this season. "We just put in extra work trying to get better," Jones. "We know the four position is a big role for this team. We're just trying to make sure we're prepared for the end of the season by putting in the extra work. It's something we're going to get used to, being the last ones out." While Jones and Motiejunas are battling for the Rockets starting PF job, both should see enough minutes to warrant a late-round fantasy selection. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:41 am
  • Gerald Wallace expecting diminished role
    Gerald Wallace is expecting to play less minutes this season and is willing to accept that role.

    Advice: After Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said he's still trying to figure out what Wallace's role is, the 13-year veteran said he's willing to accept whatever role comes his way. "I’m here for supportive veteran leadership. Whatever the coach needs me to do," Wallace said. "We’ve already talked about it. I’m in a position where I’m comfortable with it." With Jeff Green, Evan Turner, and James Young crowding the Celtics' wing, Wallace likely won't see enough minutes to provide fantasy value in standard leagues this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:11 am
  • Kawhi Leonard out w/ 'strong strain' of virus
    Kawhi Leonard (eye) is out for Monday's game and is dealing with a "strong strain" of the virus in his eye, according to coach Gregg Popovich.

    Advice: "He had a really strong strain of whatever virus it is," Popovich said. "He's still out and they're going to re-evaluate [Tuesday]." Leonard is expected to miss much of the preseason and he is questionable to start the season. There has been no indication that he has anything seriously wrong with his eye, so he shouldn't be knocked down your draft board because of his illness. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:17 pm
  • Gerald Wallace (knee) still not 100 percent
    Gerald Wallace (knee) divulged that he still feels pain when trying to explode off his surgically repaired left knee, and admitted he's currently not capable of playing major minutes.

    Advice: "I don’t feel myself at 100 percent," said Wallace. "I’m still battling, trying to get my knee back to where I want it to be. At this point I don’t feel like I can play 30 or 40 minutes right now, with my knee the way it is. I’m still a work in progress of getting myself back to 100 percent so I’m comfortable with it." It's been injury after injury with Wallace, and after averaging 5.1 points and 3.7 rebounds with the Celtics last season, he's just not worth drafting anymore in any format. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:46 pm
  • Hornacek rips T.J. Warren for poor play
    Coach Jeff Hornacek told rookie T.J. Warren that his team is "not playing a pickup game" during practice on Saturday.

    Advice: The buzz on Warren has subsided a bit since his impressive summer league. It seems obvious that Marcus Morris is going to start at small forward on opening night with P.J. Tucker suspended so Warren is unlikely to have much value this season. He does have some upside in keeper leagues, though. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:19 am
  • Andrew Wiggins having some shooting woes
    Andrew Wiggins made 2-of-7 from the field in Sunday's win over the Thunder for eight points with two rebounds, one assist and three steals.

    Advice: He didn't turn the ball over in 23 minutes and the steals were nice, so this game wasn't a lost cause. Wiggins went down hard after a collision, but there is no reason to be concerned. He's probably not going to start in his rookie season and will likely start slow, so that's just something to think about if you want to reach for him in the middle rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:40 am
  • Perry Jones leads OKC w/ 21 points off bench
    Perry Jones came off the bench on Sunday but still led the Thunder with 21 points on 7-of-15 FGs and 5-of-8 FTs, eight rebounds and one block in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He also sank a pair of 3-pointers and is the favorite to start at SF while Kevin Durant (foot) is sidelined. Fantasy owners should view him as a low-end, short-term option capable of contributing a trickle of across-the-board stats. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:14 pm
  • Corey Brewer quiet in start at SF vs. Thunder
    Corey Brewer had five points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals as the Wolves' starting SF on Sunday.

    Advice: The starting wing positions belong to Kevin Martin and Andrew Wiggins, leaving Brewer to mop up minutes with the second unit. He'll be vying with guys like Mo Williams, Zach LaVine and Chase Budinger, so you'll have to crouch to see Brewer's fantasy ceiling this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:53 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) out again Sunday
    Shabazz Muhammad's sore Achilles tendon will sideline him again on Sunday.

    Advice: He's been out for over a week but recently shed his protective boot, so he's likely to play in at least one preseason game. The Wolves picked up his $2.1 million option for next season and he should play backup minutes at both SF and PF this year, but there's too much depth in Minnesota to rely on him as a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:49 pm
  • Gerald Wallace (knee) returns on Sunday
    Gerald Wallace (knee) returned to action during the NBA's first 44-minute game but went scoreless in five minutes.

    Advice: The man they call Crash is finally getting over a bruised knee but he won't have a big enough role on this Celtics team to matter in almost any format. Ignore Wallace on draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:39 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad has team option exercised
    Shabazz Muhammad had his team option exercised on Sunday.

    Advice: He has shown some immaturity early on in his NBA career, but still has plenty of time to turn it around. Muhammad lost some weight this offseaason, but an achilles injury is currently hampering his fight for minutes at the SF position. He is not on the fantasy radar except for in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:17 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (eye) to miss rest of preseason
    Kawhi Leonard (eye) will miss the remainder of the preseason, and is questionable for the regular season opener on October 28.

    Advice: "Kawhi Leonard is still out, for 10 more days," Gregg Popovich said before tipoff of Saturday’s game. "[The infection] is going back and forth between the two [eyes]. It’s crazy." This infection is not considered serious, and we'd bet that Kawhi is on the probable side of questionable for the regular season opener vs. Dallas. Leonard was magnificent during the Spurs title-run last season, and he figures to be a late-first, early-second round selection in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:18 am
  • Gerald Wallace (knee) available on Sunday
    Gerald Wallace (knee) will be available for Sunday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Wallace hasn't had a fantasy relevant season since 2012, and we're not expecting a sudden turnaround. He's extremely injury prone, and just isn't capable of putting up meaningful stat lines anymore. Feel free to ignore Wallace in all formats come draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:32 am
  • Matt Barnes puts up a goose egg
    Matt Barnes missed all nine of his shots from the field against the Nuggets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: He's had better games, but nobody else is stepping up. Barnes should be locked in as the starting small forward and will have some decent fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:33 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard has infection in both eyes now
    Kawhi Leonard's right eye infection has spread to his left eye and he will miss Saturday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: He could miss the rest of the preseason and this doesn't sound good. To be clear, it doesn't sound serious and we would still expect him to be in the lineup on opening night. If anything, maybe this will cause his draft value to slide into the mid-second round. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:49 pm
  • Gerald Wallace (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Gerald Wallace (knee) is expected to be ready to suit up on Sunday against Brooklyn.

    Advice: He is recovering from a bone bruise in his knee and looks like he is ready to join the fight for rotational minutes at SF and PF for the Celtics. He isn't going to have a large enough role to matter in most leagues so he is not worth drafting in almost any format. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:32 pm
  • Roberson goes for 15 and 10 in start vs. TOR
    Andre Roberson started once again on Friday against the Raptors and finished with 15 points, 10 boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: This is not typical of Roberson's stat-set and owners can dismiss it unless we see it again. The defensive specialist is probably looking at 20-28 mpg while Kevin Durant is out, and he won't be able to sniff standard league value even with that much playing time. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:11 pm
  • Shawn Marion getting rest vs. the Mavs
    Shawn Marion will not play against the Mavericks on Friday.

    Advice: It's just a rest day and it's a little interesting he doesn't play against his former team. Marion is only worth a look in extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:38 am
  • Andre Roberson logs 32 minutes off bench
    Andre Roberson played 32 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 10 points with seven boards, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: Jeremy Lamb has been awful and somehow posted a minus-31 in plus-minutes on Thursday. Roberson should be considered as the favorite to start at shooting guard on opening night, but he's not going to get a ton of shots. He's more of a deep-league, short-term target. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:25 am
  • Perry Jones III takes 14 shots
    Perry Jones made 4-of-14 from the field for nine points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

    Advice: He started at power forward and is the heavy favorite to start at small forward on opening night. Jones' ability to play the four is a big reason why he might take on most of Kevin Durant's (foot) minutes. Fantasy owners can consider him in deep leagues, but he's not on the radar in standards. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:37 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad out of boot
    Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) was out of his walking boot on Thursday.

    Advice: He's also at 215 pounds, which is down from 242 from last year. Muhammad will likely sit out Friday's preseason action, but could play on Sunday and will get minutes at both forward spots. He doesn't really fill a stat sheet and is not a fantasy option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:37 am
  • Matt Barnes uses yoga to re-shape body
    In an effort to become healthier and more flexible, Matt Barnes added yoga classes to his summer workout regimen.

    Advice: "I'm still not as flexible as I'd like to be and it's something I continue to work on," he said, "but I just knew that I couldn't miss as much time as I did last year." Barnes also added that he lost 18 pounds over the offseason and is the lightest he's been since high school. The 34-year-old will have to beat out Reggie Bullock and Chris Douglas-Roberts for the Clippers starting SF spot, but he's still worth a late-round pick in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:18 am
  • Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) still in a boot
    Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) is still in a walking boot.

    Advice: He is expected to return to practice on Thursday and could play in a game on Sunday. Muhammad dropped some weight in the offseason, which is encouraging because he was in the news for the wrong reasons during his first summer as a rookie. He's only an option in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:49 am
  • Perry Jones could start for Kevin Durant
    Perry Jones started for the Thunder on Tuesday and hit 5-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, two rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Advice: We're guessing he gets the start at small forward for Kevin Durant, who will miss a couple months with a broken foot, but it's also possible that Jeremy Lamb or Anthony Morrow could get the job. If Perry wins it, he's going to be worth a late draft pick in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:11 pm
  • Andre Roberson fails to score Tuesday
    Andre Roberson started again at shooting guard but failed to score after missing all four of his shots.

    Advice: He only registered three rebounds and two turnovers in 25 minutes, as his reputation as a defensive stalwart continues to ring true. Starter or not, he's not enough of an offensive weapon to be considered in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:02 pm
  • Terrence Jones quiet again, bangs elbow
    Terrence Jones struggled again on Tuesday, going for five points, two rebounds and a steal on 2-of-6 shooting in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He also suffered a right elbow injury after a collision with Ish Smith, but played through it with a wrap on his elbow. He's been highly disappointing thus far, but did have 18 points on Monday. He's still not a lock to win the starting PF job in Houston, but we are still leaning that way. Donatas Motiejunas appears to be his main competition for the job and had nine points, one rebound and a 3-pointer on 2-of-8 shooting. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:34 pm
  • Shawn Marion starts in place of LeBron
    Shawn Marion started in place of the resting LeBron James on Tuesday and had 11 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Marion's fantasy value is going to take a big hit playing behind LeBron all season, so don't target him unless you're in a really deep draft. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:18 pm
  • Andre Roberson, Perry Jones start at SG, SF
    The Thunder's starting lineup for Tuesday features Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones, Lance Thomas and Steven Adams.

    Advice: Roberson's defense makes him a likely starter for coach Scott Brooks, and Perry Jones could also fill in at SF while Kevin Durant (foot) is on the sidelines. Thomas and Adams may lose their starting jobs once Serge Ibaka (ankle) and Kendrick Perkins (quad) return to action, and at the moment there are more questions than answers in OKC. Brooks could also slide Roberson to SF with Anthony Morrow, Reggie Jackson or Jeremy Lamb at SG, so fantasy owners should keep a close eye on the Thunder as the preseason winds down. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:28 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) likely out Friday
    Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) is wearing a protective boot and he's not expected to play in Friday's exhibition.

    Advice: Flip Saunders said that Muhammad will be out for a "few days" due to mild Achilles tendinitis, so this doesn't sound like a serious problem. He can't afford to lose any ground in the fight for minutes at SF and fantasy owners can safely ignore him on draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:46 am
  • Jones leads Rockets with 18 points
    Terrence Jones scored 18 points in the Rockets' 95-92 preseason win over the Suns on Monday, hitting 8-of-15 shots with seven rebounds, three steals and one block in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Granted, James Harden and Dwight Howard took the night off, but this is one of the reasons we love Jones as a middle round target. Yes, there's been talk about an open competition at power forward between he and Donatas Motiejunas (nine points, five boards, one steal, 20 minutes), but as long as Jones doesn't faceplant he has late-early round upside in a starting role. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:14 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (eye infection) misses practice
    Kawhi Leonard (eye infection) missed practice on Monday and will not travel for Thursday's game in Phoenix.

    Advice: He missed Saturday's game with the same illness and it's not considered serious. Leonard was used in several different offensive situations in his one preseason game, so we're eager to see if coach Gregg Popovich will continue to allow Kawhi to blossom. He's worth a look at the turn of the first and second rounds of standard drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:04 am
  • Gerald Wallace (knee) out for two games
    Gerald Wallace (knee) will miss the next two games due to a knee injury.

    Advice: It's just a bone bruise and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong structurally. Wallace had knee surgery on his torn meniscus last season and he'll probably need some maintenance days throughout the year. He's not worth drafting in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:44 am
  • T.J. Warren working hard on 3-point shooting
    Suns rookie T.J. Warren is working hard to improve his 3-point shooting.

    Advice: "The 3s, if he can make those, he'd be a dangerous player as he goes on through his career," said coach Jeff Hornacek.
