Player Notes

  • Kris Dunn comfortable at PG or SG
    Kris Dunn said he's comfortable playing on or off the ball.

    Advice: This was pretty obvious at Summer League. Dunn even started at shooting guard in Las Vegas and really took it to the competition. There was some talk from coach Tom Thibodeau of Dunn even starting over Zach LaVine, but that would be a big surprise. The biggest question regarding Dunn is if the Wolves give Tyus Jones any minutes at all. If not, Dunn could get minutes in the upper 20s out of the gate. He's a very nice late-round pick with big upside. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:45 pm
  • Varejao (back) will be ready for camp
    Anderson Varejao (back) said that he will be ready for the start of training camp.

    Advice: He had a back issue which held him out of the Rio Olympics, but he should be close to 100 percent based off this report. He will open the season as the primary backup behind Zaza Pachulia and won't have much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm
  • Malone won't reveal starting power forward
    Coach Mike Malone said he won't reveal his starting power forward for the season opener.

    Advice: He did say he knows the answer here, but he's going to keep it in house. Malone added he wants a lot of competition for that spot. Back in August, Malone said there is a "good chance" Kenneth Faried starts, so he's a heavy favorite. Nikola Jokic is fully expected to start at center, but the Nuggets could additionally use him as a non-starting power forward next to Jusuf Nurkic depending on game flow and matchups. Faried is more of a later-round pick these days. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:24 am
  • Hornets will be careful with Kemba Walker
    Hornets coach Steve Clifford said he will monitor Kemba Walker's workload early in camp.

    Advice: He had knee surgery back in May and was declared to be 100 percent in early August, but it makes sense for the Hornets to ease him back into action. The knee concerns are a little worrying, but his fantasy stock is still high after he put up averages of 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 triples per game on 42.6 percent shooting last season. His offensive role should only grow with Al Jefferson in Indiana. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:57 am
  • Josh Richardson (knee) is progressing
    Josh Richardson (right MCL) had his knee brace removed and will be able to do light court work at training camp.

    Advice: This is wonderful news for the second-year SG and it sounds like his recovery is on schedule. His previous timetable had him returning around the season opener, but it would be understandable if the Heat proceed with caution. Once healthy, Richardson should be the second best fantasy option in Miami's backcourt behind Goran Dragic. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am
