• Parts ways with Spurs
    The Spurs and Bullock agreed to a contract buyout Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Bullock's buyout doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the 32-year-old forward doesn't fit the Spurs' rebuilding timeline. Bullock will enter the 2023-24 season as a free agent who provides quality perimeter defense and above-average outside shooting. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 7:10 am
  • Suffers ankle injury
    Green sprained his left ankle earlier this week and is expected to be out for 3-6 weeks, Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report reports.

    Advice: Green's ankle injury will likely keep him out for the entire preseason and could cause him to miss the Warriors' season opener on Oct. 24 against the Suns. Kevon Looney will likely start at center in his absence. With the Warriors thin in the frontcourt, Dario Saric, Trayce Jackson-Davis and Jonathan Kuminga could also receive increased minutes.

    Advice: Tatum had been dealing with a left wrist injury throughout last postseason but appears to have fully recovered without surgery heading into the 2023-24 season.

  • Out for 2-3 weeks
    The Pelicans announced Thursday that Nance received a biological injection to stimulate the healing process in his left ankle and is expected to return to basketball activities in approximately 2-3 weeks, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Advice: Nance's ankle injury could cause him to miss most, if not all, of the preseason. However, he is expected to be fully healthy once the regular season rolls around. Nance will likely compete with Cody Zeller for the backup center position behind Jonas Valanciunas this season. Rotowire.com Thursday, 5:23 am

  • Healthy to start training camp
    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that Brown (ankle) is healthy and ready to go for training camp, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    Advice: Brown suffered an ankle injury during Summer League action, but as expected, the rookie first-round pick is good to go for training camp. The Missouri product averaged 15.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.6 made three-pointers, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks in 25.5 minutes per game during Summer League. Brown's three-point efficiency certainly stood out in college, and it appears his shot will translate to the next level, which should help him carve out a rotational spot to start 2023-24.

  • Good to go for camp
    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that Diabate (rib) is healthy and ready to go for training camp, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    Advice: Diabate missed some Summer League action due to a rib injury, but as expected, he's healthy to start the 2023-24 campaign.

Last year, Diabate appeared in 22 NBA games (one start) and averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.9 minutes per game. Rotowire.com Wednesday, 6:36 am
  • Cleared for training camp
    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that George (knee) will be a full participant at training camp, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: George missed the final eight games of the 2022-23 regular season as well as the postseason due to a right knee sprain. He was slated to resume workouts at the end of May, so it's not surprising to see him good to go for training camp. Kawhi Leonard (knee) is also expected to be a full participant, so with their two superstars back in action, the Clippers could work their way back into championship contention. Before the injury, George was playing at an extremely high level, averaging 25.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 36.0 minutes across 22 appearances.
