The Cavs have acquired George Hill in a three-team trade, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

The Cavs have been looking for a low-usage point guard that can space the floor, and they get their man in Hill. The former King will no longer be getting as much scheduled rest in Cleveland, and he should basically slide into Dwyane Wade's minutes. Hill isn't the strongest add here, but he actually gains value in 12-team leagues. Again, Cleveland is not done.

Aron Baynes draws the start with Gordon Hayward resting on Saturday against the Knicks.

Coach Brad Stevens returns to a popular lineup from last season, starting both Baynes and Al Horford. Baynes gets a slight uptick in minutes and value, but won't see a big uptick in usage or production. Terry Rozier, Marcus Morris, and Marcus Smart will likely benefit more. However, Baynes makes for a cheap flier in DFS on Saturday.

OG Anunoby will start for Kawhi Leonard against the Wizards on Saturday.

It's a new lineup for the Raptors. Anunoby and Pascal Siakam have played less than a minute together in the regular season, but they did start next to each other in a preseason game when several players rested -- Siakam went off in that game. Anunoby shifting to the three should open up more minutes for Siakam, so he looks like the better play here. C.J. Miles and Norman Powell could play more, too.

JaMychal Green suffered a broken jaw on Friday and underwent a surgical stabilization procedure Saturday morning.

He is expected to miss 2-6 weeks after this surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. It's been a rough start to the season for Green with a knee issue, a shoulder problem, and now this procedure. He'll be targeting a return around Thanksgiving. Until then Jaren Jackson Jr. gets heavy minutes earlier than expected after a monster line on Friday night.

John Wall (migraines) will play vs. Toronto on Saturday.

He didn't go through shootaround and he's played through migraines before. Wall looked like his old self in the opener with 26 points, and he'll likely be getting around 36 minutes again against Kyle Lowry.
Oct 20 - 5:27 PM

Dwight Howard (piriformis) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

He has been progressing and coach Scott Brooks was asked about it. "He's getting closer, you know, we just have to continue to give him some good work," Brooks said. Howard might be able to return next week, but given his history this could be a lingering problem. Ian Mahinmi will likely get the start again while Jason Smith, Jeff Green and Markieff Morris get a few extra minutes.
Oct 20 - 5:24 PM

Omari Spellman (ankle) is questionable Sunday against the Cavs.

He missed Friday's game with his left ankle sprain and was ruled out just after shootaround. If Spellman can make it back, he'll likely get minutes at the backup center spot. If not, Alex Poythress would serve as a DFS punt or streaming option again.
Oct 20 - 4:10 PM

Domantas Sabonis (bruised right knee) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

He's been stellar all month, but it would appear he sustained an injury in his 22 minutes on Friday. If it is just a knee bruise, this is likely a day-to-day issue, but there have been several instances where players require multiple games off. For tonight, Myles Turner should have an excellent chance for a huge stat line while Kyle O'Quinn will back him up.
Oct 20 - 4:01 PM

Jimmy Butler (precautionary rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavs.

Saturday is the second night of a back-to-back for the Wolves, so Butler will get the night off. Butler did not play at all in the preseason due to his trade demands, but logged 68 minutes over the Wolves first two regular season games this week. He joins fellow stars Kawhi Leonard of Toronto and Gordon Hayward of Boston, who are also resting on Saturday. With Butler out, Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones will see increased minutes playing off the ball. Rookie Josh Okogie will also likely make his pro debut.
Oct 20 - 3:00 PM

Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Ayton rolled his ankle at practice on Thursday and was initially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He looked fantastic in his pro debut, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers. He'll look to carry that momentum into Saturday's contest vs. the Nuggets.
Oct 20 - 2:25 PM

Gordon Hayward (left ankle recovery) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

The is the second night of a back-to-back for Boston, so the Celtics will give Hayward the night off. He has played 24 minutes in each of the C's first two games, averaging 12.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals, as he works his way back from his gruesome lower leg injury suffered on opening night last season. He's been rusty, but the good news is that Hayward has not had any setbacks as he returned to game action this week. The Celtics will likely spread Hayward's minutes fairly evenly across their deep bench.
Oct 20 - 1:39 PM

Kawhi Leonard (rest) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

Kawhi has looked fantastic early on this season, averaging 27.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over the Raptors first two games. However, it's important to remember he only played nine games last season due to a debilitating quad injury. Saturday is the back end of a back-to-back, and the third game in four nights for the Raps. Leonard played over 35 minutes in each of the first two contests. Toronto is understandably erring on the side of caution. OG Anunoby and Norman Powell will likely soak up extra minutes Saturday in D.C.
