Cory Joseph and Lance Stephenson will be in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Wizards with both Victor Oladipo (illness) and Darren Collison (knee) unavailable.

In Joseph's previous start this season he played 31 minutes but finished with just two points, three boards, five dimes and one turnover, so he's not worth much more than a punt play in DFS. Stephenson should have the rock in his hands a ton tonight with both Oladipo and Collison unavailable, and he offers a bit more upside than Joseph, so he's someone to consider streaming.

The Clippers have reportedly traded Wes Johnson to the Pelicans in exchange for Alexis Ajinca.

The Clippers don't have a ton of depth on the wings, but they're fairly loaded up in the frontcourt, so this move doesn't make a ton of sense for Los Angeles. Johnson will provide the Pelicans with a reliable swingman, and there's a chance he could start at the three-spot, which would give him the potential to carve out some low-end value in deep leagues. Ajinca won't be worth owning, though.

It remains unclear if Russell Westbrook (right knee) will be ready to go for Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Warriors.

"Every day he’s done a little bit more, but they want to evaluate after he does workouts to see how he’s feeling," said head coach Billy Donovan after Monday's practice. Considering that there's yet to be any mention of Westbrook getting through full-contact, 5-on-5 work at practice, we don't anticipate him being cleared for the season-opener.

Dwight Howard (back) practiced in full on Monday.

This was the first time Howard has got through a full practice since camp opened up in September, so while he may not be where he needs to be conditioning-wise, it now seems like there's a chance he could be cleared in time for Thursday's regular-season opener vs. Miami. Even if he's not ready by opening night, it looks like he'll be back shortly after that, and once that happens, Ian Mahinmi will lose most of his value.

Gordon Hayward will be limited to 25-30 minutes for the first couple weeks according to coach Brad Stevens.

We knew he'd have some restrictions, but now fantasy owners have a number to work with. You should still start him in season-long leagues, but DFS owners know what to do here. Look for the Celtics to use a committee approach to soak up a few of Hayward's minutes.
Oct 15 - 2:07 PM

Jamal Crawford has agreed to a one-year deal with the Suns.

As reported yesterday, the deal will be for the veteran's minimum. Crawford can still put points up in a hurry at age 38, but his defense has been a disaster in recent years. He has a good shot at minutes, but standard-league owners should look elsewhere.

Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce confirmed that Trae Young will be his opening night starter.

It's no real surprise as Jeremy Lin clearly wasn't himself yet. Barring a surprise, this should be Young's job for the duration of the season. He'll be a great source of points, dimes and triples late in drafts, but beware of his FG% and turnovers.

Myles Turner said he's all good after tweaking his left ankle on Monday.

He picked up an ankle injury a couple days ago, went through most of Monday's practice and tweaked it at the end. He was seen sitting down in a chair with his ankle taped at the end of practice, but we will take his word for it that it's not serious. Domantas Sabonis would see a significant bump in value if Turner's ankle forces him to miss any time.
Oct 15 - 1:11 PM

Devin Booker (hand) has been cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 work.

"He looked good," Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said after Saturday’s practice. "As we all know, on any level that you play, when you’re recovering from something, an injury, there’s some kind of hesitation when it comes to the contact, but I don’t see that in Book." Booker's initial timetable would have had him missing the first 2-3 games of the season, but with how much progress he's made, it seems there's a reasonable chance he'll be out there on opening night.

Steve Kerr said that Draymond Green (sore left knee) will likely be working with a minutes limit for the first few games of the season.

Green missed the first few weeks of camp with the sore knee, but he was able to get out there for the final two preseason games and he'll be good to go for opening night. Green's conditioning isn't quite where it needs to be right now, and while the sore knee doesn't seem like a major issue, it's pretty obvious that Golden State will be extremely cautious with their main guys throughout the regular-season. That potential for random rest makes Green a slightly risky, early-round target.

Jonas Valanciunas said he's fine with coming off the bench for certain matchups.

Nick Nurse has said on numerous occasions that he'll be mixing and matching the starting five based on the lineup, so both Serge Ibaka and JV could come off the bench at various points throughout the season. "It's actually better for all of us. He's [playing] the match-ups," said JV. "It's not like if you're not starting you're not going to get your minutes in... I'll make sure I hear my name. [Whether] I start or not, I'll make sure I hear my name."
Oct 14 - 3:54 PM

Billy Donovan was non-committal when discussing Russell Westbrook's (knee) status for the regular-season opener on Wednesday.

Westbrook continues to make progress in his recovery from the September arthroscopic knee procedure, but he's still not taking contact, so it seems unlikely that he'll be good to go by Wednesday. The knee issue has caused Westbrook to dip down to the second round, so he could be a nice value pick if he's able to get back to the court relatively soon, without issue.
