  • DaQuan Jeffries (concussion) ruled out for Friday
    DaQuan Jeffries (concussion protocol) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers. 

    Advice: Jeffries will miss a second straight exhibition due to the concussion, and he's without a timeline to return to practice or game action. And this won't impact fantasy basketball circles, as he's no lock to make the Opening Night roster.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 47 minutes ago
     
  • Svi Mykhailiuk (back) questionable Friday vs. IND
    Svi Mykhailiuk (lower back soreness) is questionable for Friday's exhibition against the Pacers. 

    Advice: Mykhailiuk is back on the injury report, but for a different injury. Held out of Tuesday's exhibition due to a sore groin, the offseason signing is now dealing with a sore lower back. Even if he's cleared to play, don't expect to see much of Mykhailiuk Friday night.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 49 minutes ago
     
  • Woj: Blazers pick up team option for Keon Johnson
    The Blazers picked up the team option for Keon Johnson on Thursday, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: After being dealt from the Clippers at last year's trade deadline, Johnson played a big role for the tanking Blazers. He'll have a smaller role this year, but the team has now made sure that he'll stick around until at least the end of 2024. Unless they join the tank race (their first rounder is lottery protected), Johnson shouldn't be more than a dynasty stash. NBCSportsEDGE.com 53 minutes ago
     
  • Aaron Holiday aggressive off the bench for Hawks
    Aaron Holiday finished his preseason debut for the Hawks with 16 points (6-for-12 FGs), two assists, two rebounds, two triples, one steal and one turnover.

    Advice: The Hawks were missing Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee), which allowed Holiday to be more aggressive on the offensive end. He played 26 minutes, but it's unlikely that translates since it's just a preseason game. However, the rotations for the Hawks were more similar to a regular season game than most teams have played. Holiday probably shouldn't be a target in standard fantasy leagues, but there's a chance he can be valuable in deeper leagues, especially if Bogdanovic misses the start of the season.

  • Mitchell Robinson worked on post moves over summer
    Mitchell Robinson told reporters that he added post moves over the summer "Because it puts pressure on the defense. They’ll be like, ‘Oh snap.’ I’m pretty sure everybody’s scouting report is just, lob, this, that and that. So, you got to add."

    Advice: Perhaps it's true that the Robinson wasn't considered to have any moves outside of lobs and putbacks, so post moves could make him a more productive player on the offensive end. He'll obviously block shots and grab rebounds, but we could see some more points from him. Unfortunately, if he's trying to transition more moves into his game, we could see his field goal percentage decrease from his astronomically high 76.1%. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:52 am
  • Jevon Carter hits five triples off the bench
    Jevon Carter hit five 3-pointers off the bench and finished with 17 points, three assists and just one turnover for the Bucks in their preseason loss to the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Carter is known for his defense, but he showed his offensive prowess in this game. He could become the primary backup point guard behind Jrue Holiday, with his only competition being George Hill. Carter probably won't play enough minutes for the Bucks to be worthy of a roster spot on your fantasy team, but he proved that he's capable of being a streaming option if he's given a start.

  • Dejounte Murray nearly triple-doubles in preseason
    Dejounte Murray nearly posted a triple-double in his first preseason game with the Hawks, finishing with 23 points (9-for-13 FGs), eight rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and two turnovers in a 123-113 win over the Bucks in Abu Dhabi.

    Advice: There were questions about the fit of Murray and Trae Young in the backcourt, but Dejounte proved that he can still be a viable fantasy asset with another ball-dominant guard playing. When Trae was off the floor, Dejounte was extra aggressive with the ball in his hands as both a facilitator and a scorer. Trae played 34.9 minutes per game last season, so it doesn't leave a ton of minutes for Dejounte to be the only facilitator in the offense, but he still had the ball a good bit with Trae playing off the ball more than ever.

  • Davis Bertans (knee) won't play vs. Magic
    Davis Bertans (right knee effusion) won't play in the Mavs' preseason matchup with Orlando on Friday.

    Advice: Bertans didn't play in their first preseason game against OKC either. He's supposed to be a knockdown shooter, but he really struggled last season. We'll see if he can bounce back, but it's likely that he won't be on many fantasy rosters to start the season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:18 am
     
  • Johnny Davis dealing with knee tendinitis
    Johnny Davis (knee tendinitis) missed Washington's practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Davis was the No. 10 pick in the draft for the Wizards, which means there are high expectations for him. However, he struggled in Summer League and is now 0-for-12 through two preseason games. It's still early, but it seems like he's going to struggle to carve out a role for a Wizards team that will be pushing to make the play-in tournament. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:03 am
