Latest Headlines

Frank Ntilikina (groin) out is again for Thursday.

He was out on Tuesday, so the Knicks will play it safe with their young guard. Coach David Fizdale has talked about how Ntilikina is understanding his role with the team, but he hasn't really been oozing with confidence about Ntilikina being a big offensive factor. For today, Allonzo Trier should get more chances to produce in the backcourt.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (left knee) is hopeful to get back to the court for Sacramento's home game against Toronto on November 7.

Bogdanovic began light running today, so barring a setback, he should be able to make it back to the court in a little over three weeks from now. Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and Yogi Ferrell will pick up the slack while he's out, with Hield offering the most upside. Bogdanovic isn't the sexiest option out there, but at the very least, he should be able to churn out late-round value in standard leagues.

Courtney Lee (neck) is doubtful to suit up for the Knicks' season opener against the Hawks on Wednesday.

"I want to get him a few more practices and some more conditioning and see how his body responds to all of this stuff first," said head coach David Fizdale when asked about Lee's status for opening night. Lee missed the entire preseason with the neck issue, and it's unclear what his role will be in New York this season, so he should remain on the waiver wire in most places.

Devin Booker (right hand) will play in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks.

Booker has been going through full-contact, 5-on-5 work for the past few practices, and he was able to keep up with his conditioning despite having his right hand briefly immobilized, so he should be ready to hit the ground running. The Suns didn't pick up a point guard after trading away Brandon Knight, so Booker will likely open the year as the starting PG in Phoenix, and it'll be fun to watch him go to work with Deandre Ayton.

Steven Adams (lower back stiffness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's season opener against Golden State.

This is the first we're hearing of a back issue for Adams and it's worth noting that this update is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable. Adams doesn't have an extensive history of back problems, so we imagine he'll tough it out for opening night, but owners can expect to get another update following shootaround.
Oct 15 - 3:58 PM

Shaun Livingston (sore right foot) is questionable for Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Thunder.

Livingston tweaked his foot at Sunday's practice, so maybe the 33-year-old misses opening night. That would translate to more run for Quinn Cook, but neither of these guys will be worth owning while the Dubs are at full strength.
Oct 15 - 3:52 PM

Myles Turner has agreed to a four-year, $80 million extension with the Pacers.

Turner didn't quite live up to expectations fantasy-wise last season, but he's a talented young big man who remains loaded with potential. The 22-year-old center will be entering this season in the best shape of his life, and if he can hold off Domantas Sabonis for minutes (or play alongside him), he could be in for a career year. He did tweak his ankle on Monday but said he's fine and expects to play in Wednesday's season opener vs. Memphis.

JaMychal Green (sore left shoulder) is probable to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Pacers.

Green sat out Friday's preseason finale with a minor shoulder issue, but he got in a full practice on Monday and should be good to go for opening night. He may open the year as a starter, but Jaren Jackson Jr. will be gunning for his minutes and should overtake him in the rotation at some point. Green is only a low-end option in deep leagues.

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. For what it's worth, he's listed as "out" in the game notes.
Oct 15 - 2:17 PM

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.
Oct 15 - 2:09 PM

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.
