The Lakers have waived G Vander Blue.

The Lakers now have another roster spot open to sign a player on a two-way deal, but two-way players are not the kind of guys that are likely to establish themselves as relevant names in fantasy hoops.

Pascal Siakam scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes off the bench against the Wizards on Saturday.

For the first time this season, he got some minutes at center in this one, which he did on occasion last year. Siakam is likely going to start most nights and he's really grown as a defender in space, so that should help him stay on the court as he endears himself to coach Nick Nurse. Siakam's upside isn't the highest right now, but he may trend up.

Bradley Beal scored 32 points with three rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal and six 3-pointers in 35 minutes during a 117-113 loss to the Raptors on Saturday.

He passed Gilbert "Hibachi" Arena for the franchise record in made 3-pointers and he'll probably have that doubled by the time his contract is over. Despite some talk of Otto Porter likely to get more shots, Beal is still getting his and he'll even have a chance at 3.0 treys made per game, too. He should have no problem hitting early-round value.

Joel Embiid was dominant on Saturday, scoring 32 points (13-of-26 FGs) with 10 rebounds, three assists, and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Magic.

Embiid was dominant from the start, scoring 21 points in the first half. He had a filthy Euro-step on Nikola Vucevic and then proceeded to Euro-step his way to the bench after the Magic called a timeout (video in link below). Ben Simmons left the game in the first quarter with a back injury and the Sixers needed Embiid to step up, which he did. This is the second time in his career that he has posted back-to-back 30 point outings, the first coming last November. Embiid will be a monster as long as he's healthy.
Oct 20 - 10:15 PM

J.J. Redick was hitting from deep early and often on Saturday, scoring 31 points (10-of-20 FGs, 8-of-13 3PTs, 3-of-3 FTs) with four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 32 minutes against the Magic.

Redick likes to play against the Magic, as he hit eight 3-pointers in a game against them last season, too. He struggled in the first two games this year, shooting only 3-of-11 from deep. Redick is a very important player for the Sixers, whether he starts or not. His presence changed the game immediately and he hit the game-winning triple late in the fourth quarter. He'll be a steady source of points and threes going forward.
Oct 20 - 10:07 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 25 points with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes during a 132-112 win over the Nets on Saturday.

Finally, the steals show up here after failing to get any in his first two. In his active regular season games, Oladipo had a steal in every outing from Nov. 12 until the end of the season. Oladipo's usage has been high again and he should have no problem duplicating his breakout year last season.
Oct 20 - 10:00 PM

Caris LeVert had another outstanding game during a 132-112 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, making 8-of-9 from the field for 19 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, four turnovers and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

That's good for a 100.0 eFG%. Efficiency has been the name of the game as LeVert makes his campaign for a breakout, and now he has an absurd 75.1 TS% on the year to go with his 27.1 usage rate. LeVert is not doing this with fluky jumpers as he always finds a way to get clean looks thanks to his explosiveness. He continues to look like one of the steals of fantasy drafts and we're expecting him to contend for Most Improved Player.
Oct 20 - 9:40 PM

Aron Baynes (sore right hamstring) left in the first half and will not return to the game against the Knicks on Saturday.

Baynes was able to walk off the court and to the locker room under his own power, but was not able to continue. He was having a nice game before exiting, scoring 10 points with five rebounds. Marcus Smart started the second half in his place. We should find out more after the game.
Oct 20 - 9:06 PM

Rodions Kurucs turned his left ankle and had to be helped off the court during Saturday's game against the Pacers.

He was playing defense on Cory Joseph and his left foot caught Ed Davis' foot to cause the roll. Kurucs was having a wonderful game before his injury as he helped the Nets at power forward today. It wasn't a really bad roll, so hopefully he won't be out long. The Nets are going to have to go super small when Jared Dudley is on the bench.
Oct 20 - 8:59 PM

Josh Okogie will start on Saturday against the Mavericks.

The rest of the starters remain the same. Okogie will be making his first career start with Jimmy Butler resting on the second half of a back-to-back. He has yet to appear in a regular season game, as coach Tom Thibodeau said he's not part of the rotation, but figures to play a lot tonight. He's a name to keep track of if Butler were to finally be traded.

Ben Simmons (back tightness) will not return on Saturday against the Magic.

He was ruled out fairly quickly, so this is discouraging news. Simmons had neck tightness in the preseason, and maybe this is related to that. The 76ers likely will update him after the game and hopefully he can heal up over the weekend. With him out, that will likely increase T.J. McConnell's minutes the most, but Markelle Fultz and J.J. Redick also benefit while Ben is out.
Oct 20 - 8:14 PM

Kevin Knox (left ankle) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Saturday and will not return.

He was due free throws and did not because of injury, so he will not return. Knox rolled his left ankle and he did not put weight on it as his teammates helped him to the locker room. It did not look good and Knox may require some time off, but X-rays were negative for a fracture. The Kings will have to turn to Mario Hezonja a lot more now, so he becomes a speculative pickup.
