Player Notes

  • Montrezl Harrell nets 22 points in 23 minutes
    Montrezl Harrell scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting during Sunday's exhibition, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 23 minutes.

    Advice: Harrell finished the game without committing a single turnover, and he's looked great throughout the preseason with averages of 16.5 points, 5.5 boards, 2.5 dimes, 0.8 steals and 1.0 block per game in 22.2 minutes a night. As long as he sees minutes in the mid-20s, that'll be enough floor time for him to make a difference in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com 5 minutes ago
  • Ivica Zubac scores 10 points with two blocks
    Ivica Zubac put up 10 points, eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks across 20 minutes during Sunday's preseason win over Melbourne United.

    Advice: Zubac is expected to start for the Clippers this season, but he probably won't see much more than 20 minutes a night, thus limiting his upside. His production tends to be inconsistent, but as long as he's starting, he should be able to offer some low-end value in deep leagues as a shot-blocking specialist. Rotoworld.com 10 minutes ago
  • Dario Saric (quad) questionable for Monday
    Dario Saric (bruised quad) is questionable to play in Monday's preseason finale against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Saric should be able to get over the bruised quad in time for the start of the season, but it would be far from shocking to see him skip Monday's meaningless game. If he's out, Frank Kaminsky could see some extended minutes. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago
  • Tyler Johnson (sore knee) ruled out Monday
    Tyler Johnson (sore knee) is out for Monday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: Johnson had right knee surgery last year, but there's no indication this is a major setback. As a veteran with an expiring contract on a rebuilding team, though, he's not exactly positioned for fantasy glory. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago
    Out
  • Patrick Beverley scores 11 points w/ 2 steals
    Patrick Beverley finished Sunday's preseason win over Melbourne United with 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, two steals and one turnover in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Beverley's numbers rarely jump off the page, but he's going to start in Los Angeles and should provide a steady source of triples and steals. He doesn't offer much upside, and has a lengthy injury history, but there's nothing wrong with taking a flier on Beverley if you need a point guard towards the end of your draft.

  • Robert Williams looks great in limited mins
    Robert Williams came through with eight points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in just 11 minutes off the bench during Sunday's preseason win over Cleveland.

    Advice: Williams put his superb defensive instincts on full display, and when he was on the floor, it really allowed the Celtics to push the pace. Unfortunately, head coach Brad Stevens has still not cemented the starting center position and hinted that he could rotate the starting five-spot depending on the matchup, which is something he's done in the past. Still, Williams' ability to rack up the defensive stats certainly puts him on the radar as a late-round target. Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago
  • Davis, McCaw, Miller, OG and Boucher start
    Terence Davis, Patrick McCaw, Malcolm Miller, OG Anunoby and Chris Boucher will start for Toronto on Sunday.

    Advice: Welcome to the preseason. Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell are all being rested tonight, while Kyle Lowry is out with a thumb injury. Rotoworld.com 34 minutes ago
  • Gordon Hayward takes three shots in 17 mins
    Gordon Hayward attempted just three shots through 17 minutes of play on Sunday, ending his evening with three points, three assists and one rebound.

    Advice: Hayward was extremely hesitant while he was out there, attempting just one shot through his first 12 minutes of play, and he didn't get his first bucket until late in the second quarter. He has looked a bit more explosive at times during the preseason, but he still seems to be attempting to find his place in the Celtics system, and his preseason usage rate of 17.4 isn't great. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago
  • Ersan Ilyasova starts for Giannis (illness)
    Ersan Ilyasova will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) on Sunday.

    Advice: This might impact some DFS lineups, but that's about it. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago
  • Jayson Tatum struggles with shot in win
    Jayson Tatum went just 2-of-9 from the field during Sunday's preseason win, finishing with four points, nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one turnover in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Tatum went 0-of-2 from 3-point range, but at least he wasn't settling for long-twos, and his 29.2 usage rate through the preseason thus far is encouraging. To put that in perspective, Tatum operated with just a 21.8 usage rate last season, but it looks like Brad Stevens is finally ready to let him be the man in Boston. We're expecting Tatum to take another step forward in his third NBA season, making him a solid, mid-round target. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago
  • Jaylen Brown scores 10 points with one block
    Jaylen Brown recorded 10 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and one block over 16 minutes during Sunday's preseason win over the Cavs.

    Advice: Brown got his points efficiently, going 4-of-7 from the field and 1-of-1 from the stripe, and he finished the game with a team-high plus/minus rating of plus-30. Brown is a great player, but his game doesn't really translate to fantasy hoops, so he's not the best target in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago
  • Kemba Walker scores 12 points in 16 minutes
    Kemba Walker went 3-of-6 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line on his way to 12 points in Sunday's easy preseason win over the Cavs.

    Advice: Walker went 3-of-3 from 3-point range and added one rebound while he was out there, but he also committed two turnovers without recording any assists. The good news is his knee was not an issue, but Walker's 22.2 preseason usage rate is somewhat concerning. Brad Stevens tends to get the most out of his point guards, but it could take Walker a bit to really get going as he adjusts to sharing the rock with Gordon Hayward and Jayson Tatum.

  • Larry Nance scores nine points w/ six boards
    Larry Nance scored nine points on 4-of-10 shooting during Sunday's preseason loss to the Celtics, adding six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block and three turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: It wasn't the best showing from Nance, who also bricked both of his free throws, but none of the Cavs' main rotation players had a great game in the blowout loss. Collin Sexton went 1-of-8 from the field on his way to four points, three assists, two rebounds and seven turnovers in his 24 minutes of floor time, and Sindarius Thornwell was the only Cleveland player to crack double digits in the scoring department with 12 points over 16 minutes.

  • Justin Robinson starting at PG for Wizards
    Justin Robinson will start at PG for the Wizards on Sunday.

    Advice: He's starting because the Wizards have few healthy bodies left without Ish Smith (hamstring) and Isaiah Thomas (thumb). The rebuilding Wizards may find time for Robinson this season, but most of his minutes are likely to come in the G League. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
  • Allen Crabbe (right knee) out again Sunday
    Allen Crabbe (right knee) will not play on Sunday.

    Advice: The expectation has always been that Crabbe would miss the preseason while rehabbing from right knee surgery. Missing training camp and the preseason hurts his integration with a youthful team that has multiple promising prospects on the wings, and we don't expect Crabbe to have more than occasional 3-point-specialist appeal.

    Injured
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) out Sunday
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) will not play in Sunday's exhibition game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo was able to go through shootaround, but this is a preseason game against the Wizards, so the Bucks will use any excuse to hold him out. He's fine. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:26 pm
  • Kevin Huerter (right knee) won't play vs. MIA
    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) will not play vs. the Heat on Monday.

    Advice: Huerter's fantasy value was spoiled by inefficiency last year -- in 27.9 minutes per game over the final month, he shot 41.0% from the field and 50.0% from the free-throw line. He was 73.2% from the line on the season, only missed seven games, and should assume a bigger role as a scorer this year. There's reason to target him, but he may fare better in points leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:24 pm
  • Evan Turner (left Achilles) probable Monday
    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) is probable for Monday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Turner was acquired by the Hawks in June and coach Lloyd Pierce reportedly wants to play him at four positions, PG through PF. He's a solid playmaking veteran to bring off the bench for Atlanta, but it doesn't help that he's yet to play in a preseason game. With an Achilles issue preceding opening night, there's no reason to target him. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:24 pm
    GTD
  • Romeo Langford exits game with knee sprain
    Romeo Langford suffered a right knee sprain during Sunday's preseason game.

    Advice: That's an unfortunate injury for Langford to catch with the regular season just a little over a week away, and there's certainly a chance this will impact his status for opening night. He wasn't projected to have a large role in the rotation, though, so this doesn't really affect fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:17 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (thumb) cleared for shooting
    Isaiah Thomas (left thumb surgery) has progressed to shooting with his left hand.

    Advice: Thomas is still a ways away, but he's hopeful to get back to the court by early-to-mid November. It's tough to target him given his injury history, and with him missing all of camp and the preseason, we don't know exactly what his role will look like. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:11 pm
