• Will be limited by elbow injury
    Gafford sustained an elbow injury during a recent pickup game and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Gafford reportedly took a hard fall during a recent pickup game and landed on his elbow. While the exact diagnosis, or even which elbow it is, remains unknown, the belief is that the big man will be sidelined to start training camp, and he'll likely miss some preseason action. The goal, of course, is to have Gafford back for the Wizards' opener on Oct. 25 at Indiana. Gafford is projected to start at center for Washington -- a role he held for 47 of his 78 appearances a year ago. Rotowire.com Today, 9:29 am
  • Dealing with broken toe
    Shamet sustained a broken big toe Sunday and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: It's unclear how Shamet suffered the injury, but it will cost him the start of training camp and will be something to monitor as the Wizards' Oct. 25 regular-season opener quickly approaches. Shamet, who came over from Phoenix as part of the Chris Paul trade, is expected to be in the mix for minutes at both guard spots off the bench. Rotowire.com Today, 9:25 am
  • Joining Celtics
    Gabriel and Boston agreed to a training camp contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Gabriel appeared in 68 games for the Lakers last season and will compete for a roster spot during training camp. With Robert Williams dealt to Portland, Gabriel currently profiles as a frontrunner to carve out a bench role in Boston's frontcourt. Luke Kornet and Neemias Queta represent competition.

  • Out indefinitely with knee injury
    Lee suffered a right knee injury and will be out until further notice, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Advice: Rankin relays that Lee is believed to have suffered a meniscus injury during a recent workout at the team's training facility. The severity remains unclear, but this is certainly an issue that could sideline him for the first few weeks of the regular season. Lee likely wasn't on fantasy radars anyway, but in his presumed absence, Grayson Allen, Eric Gordon and Jordan Goodwin are candidates for increased roles behind Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

  • Signs with Bucks
    Payne and Milwaukee agreed to a one-year deal Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Payne joins the Bucks after being waived by San Antonio in September. The 29-year-old spent last season with Phoenix but was traded to the Spurs after the Suns acquired Bradley Beal this summer. Payne averaged 10.3 points across 48 appearances last season, but he battled foot injuries throughout the campaign. Healthy all offseason, Payne likely slots in as Damian Lillard's primary backup in Milwaukee. Rotowire.com Today, 3:50 am
  • Dealt after all
    Brogdon and Robert Williams were traded to Portland by Boston on Sunday in exchange for Jrue Holiday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Brogdon's tumultuous offseason with Boston officially ends with a departure. Brogdon was nearly traded to the Clippers this summer as part of a package deal for Kristaps Porzingis, but the point guard's ongoing elbow issue forced Los Angeles out of the deal. It appeared the Celtics and Brogdon were both content moving forward with their partnership to start training camp, making the deal quite surprising. The Trail Blazers are excited about their current backcourt rotation, which is expected to be led by rookie first-round pick Scoot Henderson and Anfernee Simons, so the 30-year-old Brogdon profiles as a veteran backup. It's also possible Brogdon is dealt again, as he currently doesn't fit Portland's rebuilding roster and could help the Trail Blazers obtain more assets for the future. Rotowire.com Today, 2:15 am
  • Headed to Boston
    Holiday was traded to the Celtics by the Trail Blazers on Sunday in exchange for Malcolm Brogdon, Robert Williams, a 2024 first-round pick and a 2029 unprotected first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: As expected, Holiday, who was traded to Portland by Milwaukee in exchange for Damian Lillard on Wednesday, has been shipped to a contender. In Boston, Holiday finds himself essentially replacing Marcus Smart, who was flipped for Kristaps Porzingis this offseason. The Celtics have been busy this offseason, revamping the assets around Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, and their rotation appears clustered at the moment. Derrick White, Al Horford, Holiday, Brown, Tatum and Porzingis would all be everyday starters on other teams, but one will have to settle for a sixth-man role to start 2023-24. Either way, those six players figure to be on the court as much as possible, though Tatum and Brown figure to dominate the playmaking opportunities. Holiday still has a high fantasy floor due to his defensive skills, but his offensive production may take a hit with the move. Rotowire.com Today, 2:09 am
  • Traded to Portland
    Williams and Malcolm Brogdon were traded to Portland by Boston on Sunday in exchange for Jrue Holiday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Boston will also send a 2024 first-round pick and a 2029 unprotected first-round pick to Portland. Williams, who was slated for a reduced workload after the Celtics acquired Kristaps Porzingis this offseason, will now get a fresh start in Portland but will likely form a timeshare with Deandre Ayton to start 2023-24. This may not be a worst-case scenario for Williams, who's struggled to play heavy minutes in recent years while battling lingering knee issues. Williams should remain an elite source of blocks even in limited minutes, but his overall fantasy value certainly takes a hit with the trade. Rotowire.com Today, 2:06 am
  • Cut by Memphis
    Todd was waived by the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: Todd is a candidate to remain with Memphis' G League affiliate. The 21-year-old appeared in a brief six games with the Wizards last season, but he struggled mightily in the G League in 2022-23, shooting 36.3 percent from the field on 5.7 shots per game. Rotowire.com Today, 12:33 am
