Latest Headlines

The Rockets have waived G Briante Weber.

They needed to free up a roster spot to make room for Markel Brown, but this move won't have any impact in fantasy hoops.

Tim Hardaway Jr. made 10-of-25 from the field for 29 points with two rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Nets during a 107-105 loss on Friday.

He got the last shot at the buzz, but he couldn't get the deep three to go down. It's bombs away for THJ with 22 shots from the field in the opener and another game with massive usage tonight. With Frank Ntilikina basically being more of a defensive contributor and the Knicks starting Lance Thomas, there will be a litany of shots available for THJ in this first unit. He'll have his slumps, but Hardaway Jr. should have a shot at scoring in the 20s this season.

JaMychal Green (mouth) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

He took a shot to the mouth and will need some dental work. Green was able to play through some left knee soreness before that, finishing with six points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 14 minutes. Jaren Jackson Jr. is putting on a show right now and should get extended run in the fourth.

Kemba Walker got it going after a tough start during a 120-88 win over the Magic on Friday night, scoring 26 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

After his seven-trey Wednesday, he tied Ray Allen for the most 3-pointers to start a season with 12, and Walker only had two points in the first before he busted out for 24 in the second and third quarters. Plus, all the stats are saying he has an All-Star season in the making. On the 11-game Wednesday, Walker led all players in touch time, passes received, drives to the basket, and he has a 33.9 usage rate on the season. If you drafted Kemba in the second round, things are looking great in this new offense.

Updating a previous item, J.R. Smith (elbow) is available to play against the Wolves on Friday, but he is not expected to play.

The lineup sheet had him as inactive, but it was apparently wrong. This doesn't mean he'll necessarily play after missing the opener, but downgrade Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson for now.
Oct 19 - 7:49 PM

JaMychal Green (left knee soreness) is starting on Friday vs. the Hawks.

He was listed as probable on the previous injury report, and he also battled through a shoulder tweak earlier in the week. Green may not be 100 percent and Jaren Jackson Jr. is going to push for his minutes, but he's in a great spot to produce tonight against one of the worst teams in the NBA.
Oct 19 - 7:48 PM

Marc Gasol (back) will start on Friday night against the Hawks.

He was a game-time call and apparently everything in warmups went well today. Gasol could be less than 100 percent and the early-season injury will be something to keep an eye on. For now, Jaren Jackson Jr. should still be viewed as a player who should trend up in the near future.
Oct 19 - 7:43 PM

De'Aaron Fox, Yogi Ferrell, Buddy Hield, Nemanja Bjelica and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

It's the Kings listing starters and they're about as reliable as cell service on a desert island. This is the group that started in the opener, so maybe they will go with it. Maybe they won't. Bjelica did play well with 18 points in the opener, so he could be a nice short-term add.
Oct 19 - 7:23 PM

D'Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, Jared Dudley and Jarrett Allen will start against the Knicks on Friday.

It's the same lineup and the Nets will bring Allen Crabbe of the bench in his return. Harris is likely going to lose some minutes with Crabbe back, but Caris LeVert will be getting a full workload again.
Oct 19 - 7:03 PM

Russell Westbrook (knee) has been ruled out for Friday against the Clippers.

He was listed as out, but the team left a small window open that he would make his debut. However, Westbrook has done mostly controlled contact in practice and this is his fourth right knee surgery he's recovering from, so he should miss additional time. Dennis Schroder is almost a must-start option in DFS while Paul George should be firing away all game with what should be a usage rate close to 35 -- it was 35 in the second half on Tuesday.
Oct 19 - 6:40 PM

Larry Nance (ankle) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

His ankle sprain last week didn't sound minor and now it'll cost him at least one week. With Nance out, that should mean Kevin Love will play more center, which could open up a few minutes for Sam Dekker, Ante Zizic and the guards.
Oct 19 - 6:35 PM

Serge Ibaka will replace Jonas Valanciunas in the starting lineup on Friday vs. Boston.

Toronto's lineups will be fluid based on matchups, and coach Nick Nurse has been pretty transparent about it so far. Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Paskal Siakam are the other four starters. Ibaka is a low-end to mid-tier play in a tough matchup vs. Al Horford.
