Latest Headlines

Trae Young hit seven 3-pointers en route to 24 points, five assists, one rebound, two steals and four turnovers in Tuesday's Summer League win over Chicago.

He got off to a quick start with 11 first quarter points, cooled off for a bit and then delivered a clutch 3-point shot late in the game to seal the win. It wasn't all great though, as Young only hit 7-of-19 shots and is now shooting a combined 23-of-85 (27%) from the field in Summer League. Today was somewhat encouraging, but Young has a long way to go.

Elfrid Payton (ankle) will not play vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

He was a game-time call for this game, but coach Alvin Gentry said Payton is "really close" and he didn't want to take any chances. Payton's ankle problems occurred in two different games last month and he's been out since Oct. 27, but he should be back soon. Wes Johnson, Darius Miller, E'Twaun Moore and Ian Clark will see a few extra minutes.

John Collins (ankle) is doubtful for Thursday against the Nuggets.

He is getting closer to a season debut. Coach Lloyd Pierce said Collins will have to go through some practice work with the coaching staff, so his response to practice will likely determine his status. Even if he doesn't play Thursday, this means he has to be picked up in all leagues and he could be back for the weekend. Omari Spellman would take a hit upon Collins' return.

Andrew Wiggins (quad) will play Wednesday against the Pelicans.

His quad issue has bothered him for most of this month with two separate stints on the sidelines, but he'll likely be a full go against the up-tempo Pelicans. Wiggins should have more shots going his way with Jimmy Butler out and lower-usage guys like Robert Covington in the mix.

Robert Covington will be in the starting lineup for his Timberwolves debut on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Tom Thibodeau indicated that the new additions would be operating in a "significant role" with the Timberwolves, so RoCo will be thrown straight into the fire, despite not having any practice time. With Covington getting the start, and Dario Saric to see quality minutes in the rotation, Josh Okogie may struggle to find meaningful minutes tonight.
Nov 14 - 6:28 PM

Jeff Teague (left knee) will play vs. New Orleans on Wednesday.

Andrew Wiggins (quad) is also playing and the Wolves will slot Robert Covington into the starting lineup tonight, while Dario Saric comes off the bench. Teague logged 35 minutes on Monday and it doesn't seem like coach Tom Thibodeau is at all concerned about limiting his workload.
Nov 14 - 6:27 PM

Derrick Rose (left knee) will not play Wednesday against the Pelicans.

It's knee soreness for the oft-injured Rose and hopefully he won't miss much time, but it's certainly possible he needs to miss more time after getting ruled out early. The Wolves are going to have Jeff Teague to fill the PG minutes with Tyus Jones, but Josh Okogie should see some minutes on the wing behind Andrew Wiggins and Robert Covington.
Nov 14 - 6:26 PM

Russell Westbrook (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Westbrook was able to participate at shootaround, so he is making progress, but Wednesday will mark his fifth straight game on the sidelines. With Westbrook unavailable, Dennis Schroder will be drawing another start and Paul George will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. The Thunder play against on Saturday in Phoenix, and for now, we'll consider Westbrook questionable for that one.
Nov 14 - 6:21 PM

Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) is out Wednesday against the Pistons.

This comes as a surprise and it's not in a back-to-back set for Serge. He did have right knee problems last year, but this will be his first game out of the lineup on the year. With him out, Jonas Valanciunas should see a few extra minutes with Greg Monroe getting time behind him for a possible revenge game.
Nov 14 - 6:19 PM

Jarrett Allen (illness) will not play vs. the Heat on Wednesday night.

This illness will now keep him out for at least two games, which is unusual by most standards. He should be back for the weekend, though. With him out, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is likely to get minutes at the five again while Ed Davis could play more, too.
Nov 14 - 5:56 PM

Kyle Korver (right foot) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

This will be the second straight game on the sidelines for Korver, but maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Monday's matchup with the Piston. Jordan Clarkson and Rodney Hood should see quality minutes tonight as some of the last men standing in Cleveland's backcourt.
Nov 14 - 5:44 PM

Marcus Morris (illness) will not play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

It's a big loss for the Celtics second unit with Morris being one of the most efficient players on the team, but they are playing the Bulls. Morris has played 25.8 minutes per game on the season and he should be considered questionable for Friday against the Raptors. With him out tonight, coach Brad Stevens could have Semi Ojeleye fill in to be the 10th man in the rotation or he could extend Jaylen Brown, Marcus Morris and Terry Rozier a little more.
