The Pelicans have "changed course" on a potential 10-day deal with Terrence Jones and will not be signing him.

Who needs Terrence Jones when you can keep playing superstar Dante Cunningham big minutes instead? All kidding aside, it seems like it's just a matter of time before another NBA team takes a flier on the high-upside forward.

Nikola Mirotic is expected to be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

The starting four-spot in New Orleans could be fluid this season, with Mirotic of Julius Randle getting the call based on the matchup, but it sounds like it'll be Mirotic getting the starting nod tonight and he'll be joined by Elfrid Payton, Jrue Holiday, E'Twaun Moore and Anthony Davis.

Wendell Carter Jr. will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's season opener against the 76ers.

Well, that didn't take long. Carter Jr. opening the year as the starting center in Chicago is an excellent sign regarding his rest-of-season outlook, and we'll be watching closely to see how he splits the five-man minutes with Robin Lopez. Carter Jr. was a beast at Summer League, but had a bit of a muted preseason, so it'll be interesting to see how he fares against Joel Embiid in his regular-season debut.

Myles Turner (left ankle) is "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Turner tweaked his ankle at Monday's practice, but his status for tonight's season opener was never really in doubt. He'll be looking to bounce back after a disappointing 2017-18 season, so hopefully, we'll see the results on the court from his improved physique. Go ahead and get him active.

J.R. Smith (sore right elbow) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Raptors.

He was doubtful heading into this one, so Smith getting ruled out isn't surprising. It's unclear what role he'll have in the rotation this season, so he should be on the waiver wire everywhere. Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson will pick up a majority of the two-guard minutes tonight.
Oct 17 - 11:01 AM

Larry Nance (sprained right ankle) will not suit up for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Raptors.

Nance's ankle is still black and blue, so it's not surprising that he'll be watching from the sidelines tonight. Tristan Thompson will get the start at center tonight, and he could be looking at quality minutes, as the Cavs will need his size to compete with Jonas Valanciunas in the post. The Cavs play again on Friday in Minnesota, and for now, we'll be considering Nance questionable for that one.

Steve Kerr said that he'll be sticking with Damian Jones as his starting center for at least the next few games.

"We’re going to stay with DJ," said Kerr after Tuesday's opening night win. "I don’t know for how long, but we’ll stay with him. We’ve got [Rudy] Gobert and [Nikola] Jokic coming up on this road trip and he’s got the size and athleticism to deal with them and he’s going to learn an awful lot." The Dubs view Jones as their long-term solution at the five-spot, and while things could get messy once DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) gets back, Jones should be worth owning in deep leagues until that happens.
Oct 17 - 9:52 AM

Harrison Barnes (strained right hamstring) is hopeful that he'll be able to get back to the court for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

"He's making good solid progress with no setbacks that I'm aware of," said head coach Rick Carlisle. "He did pick up his activity and was in more non-contact things. We'll shoot for Friday, which should be a full practice day and see where we are then." With Barnes unavailable for Wednesday's season opener, Dorian Finney-Smith will likely get the start, and there will be more opportunity on offense for Dennis Smith Jr. and Luka Doncic.

Steven Adams not only played through his sore back on Tuesday, but played 36 minutes and finished with 17 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals in a 108-100 win over the Thunder.

We literally didn't know if Adams would play until just before game time, and he ruined the DFS hopes of guys rolling with Nerlens Noel, who played just 12 minutes and scored three points. Adams looked pretty good, although he was going against a guy named Damian Jones. The key is he was healthy enough to play and rewarded his owners, but we'll need to make sure he's over his back trouble before locking into him on a nightly basis without checking the Rotoworld newsfeed.
Oct 17 - 2:02 AM

Kevon Looney played just 18 minutes off the bench, but still came through with 10 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Monday's win over the Thunder.

Nice. Looney turned out to be a DFS star tonight (33 points), but with just 18 minutes of action, he's not a must-own fantasy player. However, he still played 11 more minutes than Jordan Bell, and Andre Iguodala left this game with a calf injury. If Iggy is going to miss time, Looney could become a hot pickup. Watch for news on this situation as it develops.
Oct 17 - 1:50 AM

Stephen Curry hit 11-of-20 shots, 5-of-9 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws to lead the Warriors to an opening-night 108-100 win over the Thunder.

He also had eight rebounds, nine assists, a steal and just three turnovers on his way to one of the lines of the night. He was helped by the fact Russell Westbrook (knee) was in street clothes, but this game was probably closer than it should have been, given that RW was out. The Warriors are 1-0, this season is officially underway, and Curry lived up to the hype tonight.
Oct 17 - 1:29 AM

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala left in the first half of Golden State's season-opening game against the Thunder on Tuesday night with tightness in his left calf.

Iguodala is questionable to return, but he still hasn't been in the game with the fourth quarter well underway. That tells us he's unlikely to return. He doesn't have a lot of fantasy value, even if healthy, but his calf injury is something to monitor. He totaled two points, two rebounds and two assists in 10 minutes before exiting. An absence could mean more minutes for Kevon Looney and Shaun Livingston.
