Timberwolves waive G Melo Trimble.

Trimble couldn't carve out a role for coach Tom Thibodeau during the preseason, and we're unlikely to see him in an NBA rotation this season.

Coach Gregg Popovich said that Rudy Gay (sore right heel) is good to go for the Spurs season-opener on Wednesday.

Gay was a full participant at Monday's practice, so it's no surprise that he's set to suit up on Wednesday. Gay averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 boards, 1.3 assists on 47.1% shooting in 21.6 minutes per game last season. He should see his playing time increase in 2018-19, as long as he can stay healthy.

Allen Crabbe (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of the Nets season opener Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

Crabbe initially injured his ankle last Monday's in a preseason game vs. the Pistons and had to be carried to the locker room. The x-rays came back negative but he was seen on crutches and hasn't been able to practice since. DeMarre Carroll is also sidelined by an ankle injury. Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Joe Harris will all see increased playing time on Wednesday night.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said DeMarre Carroll will have a surgical procedure done on his right ankle on Tuesday.

Carroll injured his ankle last week and sat out the Nets final two preseason contests. Fortunately, Atkinson downplayed the injury. "I don’t think it’s a huge thing. It was something where we could go back and forth or get this thing cleaned up and get him feeling 100 percent," said Atkinson. However, the coach was unable to provide a timetable on Carroll's return. Allen Crabbe (ankle) has also been ruled out of Wednesday's season-opener. Caris LeVert and Joe Harris are the primary beneficiaries, and both are worth consideration in DFS formats on Wednesday.

Updating a previous item, J.R. Smith (sore right elbow) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

Smith did not play in the team's preseason finale on Friday and missed practice Tuesday afternoon. He has been diagnosed with elbow soreness. Smith took an MRI which revealed no structural damage. If Smith remains sidelined, Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson could see an uptick in minutes on Wednesday. Smith can be dropped in standard leagues.

Moe Harkless (sore left knee) remains questionable to suit up for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Lakers.

Harkless missed all five preseason games for Portland, and while he was able to get through most of Monday's practice, head coach Terry Stotts would not commit to having him available for Thursday's game. Harkless has indicated that he expects to be working with a minutes limit early on, and with limited upside, there's not much incentive to draft him anywhere.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (right knee) looked "great" at Monday's practice.

KCP sat out the Lakers' final preseason game, but he practiced in full today and Luke Walton indicated he expects him to be good to go for the Lakers' regular-season opener on Thursday. Caldwell-Pope ran with the starters at practice, and while Walton said he'll be evaluating the starting group daily, it looks like KCP will open the year as the starting two-man in Los Angeles.

Larry Nance (ankle) has reportedly reached a four-year, $45 million extension with the Cavs.

The Cavs clearly view Nance as a core to their future, so he should be heavily involved in the rotation this season. He is dealing with a sprained ankle and may not be ready to go by Wednesday, but he shouldn't be out long and remains a sneaky, late-round target.
Oct 15 - 5:06 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic (left knee) is hopeful to get back to the court for Sacramento's home game against Toronto on November 7.

Bogdanovic began light running today, so barring a setback, he should be able to make it back to the court in a little over three weeks from now. Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and Yogi Ferrell will pick up the slack while he's out, with Hield offering the most upside. Bogdanovic isn't the sexiest option out there, but at the very least, he should be able to churn out late-round value in standard leagues.
Oct 15 - 4:31 PM

Courtney Lee (neck) is doubtful to suit up for the Knicks' season opener against the Hawks on Wednesday.

"I want to get him a few more practices and some more conditioning and see how his body responds to all of this stuff first," said head coach David Fizdale when asked about Lee's status for opening night. Lee missed the entire preseason with the neck issue, and it's unclear what his role will be in New York this season, so he should remain on the waiver wire in most places.
Oct 15 - 4:27 PM

Devin Booker (right hand) will play in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks.

Booker has been going through full-contact, 5-on-5 work for the past few practices, and he was able to keep up with his conditioning despite having his right hand briefly immobilized, so he should be ready to hit the ground running. The Suns didn't pick up a point guard after trading away Brandon Knight, so Booker will likely open the year as the starting PG in Phoenix, and it'll be fun to watch him go to work with Deandre Ayton.
Oct 15 - 4:09 PM

Steven Adams (lower back stiffness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's season opener against Golden State.

This is the first we're hearing of a back issue for Adams and it's worth noting that this update is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable. Adams doesn't have an extensive history of back problems, so we imagine he'll tough it out for opening night, but owners can expect to get another update following shootaround.
