The Mavericks have no current plans to buy out big man Nerlens Noel, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Stein adds that the Mavs are hopeful to get him back after the break and he can make another run at finding a role. Of course, the biggest story about Noel this season was about him eating a hotdog at halftime, so it's far from certain he gets minutes this season.

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."

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.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left wrist) left Friday's preseason finale, but returned to practice on Sunday.

Hardaway Jr. will have a ton of shots available to him this season, so the Knicks were likely just being cautious with him. THJ is worth a look in the middle rounds due to volume, even if won't be the most efficient player.
Oct 14 - 2:30 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed that Jimmy Butler practiced on Sunday and that he expects him to play Wednesday.

Another day, another development in the Butler saga. It looks like a trade is unlikely at this point and that Butler will be with the Wolves for the time being. We know he'll give it his all when he's out there, so there's no concern for his fantasy output.
Oct 14 - 2:00 PM

Harrison Barnes (strained right hamstring) will not play on Wednesday but could play Saturday.

Coach Rick Carlisle wants to get Barnes in a full practice later this week, which he'll need to do in order to play on Saturday. Barnes has been steadily ramping up his activity level in his recovery process. With a target date finally in mind, he is safer to draft in the middle rounds. Maxi Kleber and Dorian Finney-Smith will benefit in Barnes' absence.

Stephen Curry will not be assessed a one-game suspension for stepping on the court in Friday's preseason finale.

DeMarcus Cousins also stepped on the court and will similarly not be suspended. The league deemed that the incident, which came after a hard foul on Lance Stephenson by Quinn Cook, was not an altercation, thus no suspensions. The incident was mild, even though Stephenson was ejected for appearing to throw a punch. Had he been suspended, Curry would've missed Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that he's not sure if Kevin Love (left foot soreness) will be able to play for long stretches in the Cavaliers season opener because he hasn't played since October 2.

"I think Kevin will be a little gassed because he’s not in game shape right now," Lue said. "To play the same style we did, it will probably be in shorter spurts for Kevin." The good news is that he's on track to play in the Cavs opener. This doesn't change Love's long-term outlook, but it makes him a less desirable option for DFS on this day. Love has a chance for a monster season if he can stay healthy.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that he's unsure if Larry Nance (sprained right ankle) will be available for the Cavaliers season opener.

Nance sprained his ankle after landing on a teammates foot in practice on Thursday. He is set to be part of a timeshare at center with Tristan Thompson, where he will play against the smaller centers. Nance should play at both big positions, making him a nice upside pick in the later rounds
Oct 14 - 9:38 AM

Myles Turner (mild ankle sprain) did not practice on Saturday.

While the injury isn't said to be serious, Turner sat out. The Pacers are counting on him to make another leap this season and he's certainly put in the work to do so. Turner has All-Star aspirations and is still worth a pick in the early rounds. Stay tuned for updates.
