Player Notes

  • Caleb Martin gets partial deal with CHA
    The Hornets agreed to a partially-guaranteed, three-year deal with Caleb Martin.

    Advice: Caleb and Cody Martin will be twin brothers on the Hornets roster this season. It was fairly clear that Martin was going to get a roster spot after the Hornets moves today, but he's likely going to spend some time in the G League. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:43 pm
  • Chris Silva inks two-way deal with Miami Heat
    Chris Silva has signed a two-way contract with the Miami Heat.

    Advice: Silva played with the Heat in both Summer League and the preseason. He'll likely spend most of this season in the G-League. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:39 pm
  • Hornets waive two-way player Ahmed Hill
    The Hornets have waived guard Ahmed Hill on Saturday.

    Advice: Hill was signed to a two-way contract in early September, but the team ended up releasing him and giving that two-way to Caleb Martin, who performed much better in the preseason. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:24 pm
  • Wizards waive Anzejs Pasecniks, Jalen Jones
    The Wizards have waived Anzejs Pasecniks and Jalen Jones.

    Advice: Pasecniks and Jones will head to the Wizards' G-League affiliate. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:13 pm
  • Bucks release Jemerrio Jones, Tucker, Lacey
    The Bucks have released Jemerrio Jones, Rayjon Tucker and Trevor Lacey.

    Advice: Jones was signed and released on Saturday, which means he'll likely be headed to the Bucks' G-League affiliate. The same goes for Tucker and Lacey. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:10 pm
  • Allen Crabbe (knee rehab) out indefinitely
    Allen Crabbe (right knee rehab) is unlikely to see the court until mid-to-late-November, according to coach Lloyd Pierce.

    Advice: Pierce said that Crabbe's workouts are going well, but he won't return to competitive work on the court for at least a month. His return to game action will depend on how he responds once he gets back to practicing regularly. Crabbe remains off the fantasy radar right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:02 pm
    Injured
  • John Henson (groin) unable to fully practice
    John Henson (right groin strain) remains unable to fully practice with the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Henson, expected to backup Tristan Thompson at center, is highly unlikely to be available for Cleveland's opener on Wednesday. The team currently has two open roster spots and will likely look to bring in another center with both Henson and Ante Zizic (foot) sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:49 pm
    GTD
  • Cavs waive Jarell Martin, Marques Bolden
    The Cavaliers have waived Jarell Martin and Marques Bolden.

    Advice: Martin and Bolden will likely head to the G-League after their release. The Cavs currently have two open roster spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:46 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (Achilles) practices in full
    Nicolas Batum (right Achilles soreness) practiced in full on Saturday, which could change the starting lineup for the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Following Saturday's practice, coach James Borrego indicated that Batum may re-enter the starting unit for the season opener against the Bulls. Borrego is not yet ready to say that the starting five from the preseason finale -- Terry Rozier, Dwayne Bacon, Miles Bridges, PJ Washington and Cody Zeller -- will be the lineup come opening night. This is sort of surprising, since that starting group makes the most sense from a rebuilding perspective, but it's possible that Borrego wants to add Batum's ball-handling and experience to the first unit. A move to the bench would be quite disappointing for any of Bacon, Bridges or Washington. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:43 pm
    GTD
  • Pelicans release Bess, Bigby-Williams, Adams
    The Pelicans have released Javon Bess, Kavell Bigby-Williams and Jalen Adams.

    Advice: All three players were long-shots to make the roster and will likely end up in the G-League. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:27 pm
  • Javonte Green likely earns final roster spot
    Javonte Green has likely earned the final roster spot for the Celtics after the team waived Max Strus.

    Advice: Strus had his two-way converted to a normal deal last week, but the team still decided to waive him in order to pave the way for Green to stick with the big club. Green is highly unlikely to have any fantasy value, though it's awesome to see him rewarded for an exceptional training camp and preseason. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:16 pm
  • Donte Grantham released by LA Clippers
    Donte Grantham has been waived by the Clippers.

    Advice: Grantham, who was on a two-way with the Thunder last year, spent training camp with the team and is likely headed to the G-League. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:09 pm
  • Warriors officially waive Alfonzo McKinnie
    The Warriors have officially waived forward Alfonzo McKinnie.

    Advice: McKinnie went from the presumptive starter at small forward to released in the span of about a month, largely because of the injuries the team has had in the frontcourt. The rest of the league will have 48 hours to make a claim for McKinnie. The Warriors also released Jared Cunningham and Nick Zeisloft. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:05 pm
  • Boston Celtics waive guard Max Strus
    The Celtics have waived Max Strus, Kaiser Gates and Yante Maten.

    Advice: Strus was originally signed to a two-way deal in July before signing a two-year contract to get on the 15-man roster last week. The Celtics likely just wanted to give him some money after changing their minds on his two-way deal, which ultimately went to Tacko Fall. Strus is now ineligible to play for Boston's G-League affiliate, but Gates and Maten still can. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (ankle) limited in practice
    Hassan Whiteside (sprained left ankle) was limited to the non-contact portion of practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Whiteside aggravated an existing ankle injury in the second-to-last preseason game, which forced him to miss the preseason finale. He said that he will "for sure" be able to play in the opener, but we'll consider him questionable leading up to the game on Wednesday against the Nuggets. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:26 pm
  • Daryl Macon inks two-way deal with Heat
    Daryl Macon has agreed to a two-way contract with the Miami Heat.

    Advice: Macon didn't do much in the preseason for the Heat, but he had an outstanding season with the G-League's Texas Legends last year. He's not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:16 pm
  • Miami Heat release four, including Davon Reed
    The Heat have released Davon Reed, Kyle Alexander, Skyler Flatten and Bubu Palo.

    Advice: Reed, formerly an early second-round pick two years ago, provided minimal impact in four preseason games. All four players will likely head to the G-League after the Heat cut down their roster to 14. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:12 pm
  • Chicago Bulls release guard Milton Doyle
    The Bulls have released Milton Doyle, Justin Simon and Simisola Shittu.

    Advice: All three players were camp invites and will likely head to the Bulls G-League affiliate to start the season. Chicago's roster now stands at 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:08 pm
  • Victor Oladipo (knee) does some 5-on-5 work
    Victor Oladipo (right knee) participated in controlled 5-on-5 work in a halfcourt setting on Saturday for the first time since surgery early this year.

    Advice: "I hadn't played in 9 1/2 months," Oladipo said after practice. "It felt good just being out there. Making a pass, shooting a jumper, shooting a floater, a layup, something. It feels good to be out there. Feels like I never left, honestly." Oladipo is taking it slow with his rehab process, but he's clearly in a really good spot. Coach Nate McMillan reiterated that the training staff continues to offer no timetable on a potential return, though it appears possible a late-November return isn't totally out of the question. Oladipo is someone to target around pick 100 in leagues with IR spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:05 pm
    Injured
  • Hawks being extra cautious with Kevin Huerter
    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) missed the entire preseason and his status is uncertain for the season opener on Thursday against the Pistons.

    Advice: "We're hoping, but it's a combination of things, it's not just him playing in a game. It's him being able to sustain it," coach Lloyd Pierce said "We couldn't get him going for preseason because of the setbacks which means we still are going to be extra cautious with his recovery." While it seems like Huerter's knee pain is minor, he still hasn't been able to shake it and get fully healthy. It's hard to suggest drafting him right now unless it's in a deeper league. Cam Reddish (hip) and DeAndre Bembry will see added minutes if Huerter continues to miss time. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:45 pm
