Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson are out for Thursday against the Lakers.

It's likely just rest for SGA, who has been marvelous throughout his time in Vegas. Besides the defense, Gilgeous-Alexander has shown he can get buckets at all levels in halfcourt offense. His length on defense should help him get minutes as a shooting guard and in three-guard lineups.

Thunder GM Sam Presti said the team won't rush Russell Westbrook back from knee surgery.

He added that the Thunder have never pushed a player to hit a specific date in recovering from injury, and that he won’t start now by rushing Westbrook to be ready for game one. The Thunder announced that Westbrook would be re-evaluated in four weeks on Sept. 12, so it's not a surprise that he'll likely miss some time to start the season. Paul George's fantasy arrow is pointing up and it makes sense for Westbrook's owners to handcuff him with Dennis Schroder.

Knicks President Steve Mills said on Thursday that there is still no timeline for Kristaps Porzingis (knee) to play this season.

To be clear, Porzingis will be re-evaluated by the medical staff this week, so we'll get another update soon. Mills wouldn't rule out Porzingis missing the entire season when asked earlier this week, saying that he's not going jeopardize his long-term future. As for a contract extension, Knicks GM Scott Perry declined to talk about it but was adamant that Porzingis is a "very important part" of New York's future.

Brandon Knight underwent surgery on his left knee according to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic.

Charania adds that this was just a "cleanup," but this is the third surgery he's had on his left knee since his ACL tear -- he had another "cleanup" two months ago. The Rockets brought in Knight to reduce Chris Paul's workload, but they may not have that luxury early in the season because there's no word of a timetable. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.

In a video for the Players' Tribune, Markelle Fultz finally revealed his new jumper.

The video (linked below) opens with Fultz draining 3-pointers. It's a different release than the one he had at Washington which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as his trainer Drew Hanlen rebuilt his jumper from the ground up. If anything, the release looks smooth and quick, so Philly fans have every reason to be excited. Anybody can hit open shots in a gym, so we'll see if this new jumper has some success in the preseason.

Reggie Jackson had a "minor procedure" on his right ankle over the offseason.

His ankle cost him 37 games last season and now we're learning that he's been sidelined for most of the offseason because of this. Jackson did say he's day-to-day, but it doesn't sound like he's a lock for camp by any means. "It actually feels good. I feel like I can cut again," Jackson said. "Once I get going fully, just see how it feels. But it feels night and day compared to last year." We'll take him at his word, but if he's not right for the season opener Ish Smith will get an opportunity to run the point for the first unit.

The Celtics currently have no plans to rest Kyrie Irving (left knee) or Gordon Hayward (left leg surgery) in back-to-back situations this season.

"I’m not sure I anticipate [resting in back-to-backs] with either of those guys from everything I’ve been told thus far," Stevens said on Wednesday. "I think they’ve really made great strides, they’ve been working out, playing in small groups and playing 5-on-5 for over a few weeks now." It was recently reported that Kyrie won't have a minute-limit to begin the season, either, giving prospective owners another reason for optimism.

Jimmy Butler is "most determined" to end up with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Woj reported earlier today that the Clippers, Knicks, and Nets are among Butler's preferred destinations. Shams Charania of The Athletic also mentioned the Heat as a potential landing spot. Butler is eyeing a team that can accommodate him and another star player. He would like to be traded now so that he can lock in a five-year max contract worth $190 million next summer, instead of a four-year, $140 million contract if he were to leave Minnesota in free agency.

Isaiah Thomas' (right hip) availability for training camp remains in question according to Nuggets President Tim Connelly.

"We want to be especially sensitive to Isaiah," Connelly said. "I think he probably has rushed back (in the past). We want Isaiah to be right, so he's working his butt off a couple times a day with our guys." Thomas said back in July that he would "for sure" be ready for camp after undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery in March, but there's no word of a setback and it sounds like the Nuggets will bring him along very slowly by design.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said Lonzo Ball (knee) won’t be ready for 5-on-5 scrimmages when training camp starts next week.

Ball has gone through some 1-on-1 drills, but Walton said the Lakers won’t "rush him back at all." He had the injured portion of his left meniscus removed during his July surgery and was expected to be 100 percent for camp, so this obviously isn't ideal with the season less than a month away. He's shaping up to be a risk vs. reward player in the middle rounds.

Pacers President Kevin Pritchard hinted that Kyle O'Quinn might not be in the rotation.

Here's what Pritchard said to KOQ during his recruiting pitch: "We don't know if you're going to play a minute or 500 minutes, but there's a role that Al Jefferson held last year that was a tremendous role for us that's so important." Big Al played 13.4 minutes across 36 appearances last season, so if that's what they're envisioning for KOQ then his fantasy value will be non-existent. On the other hand, this is great news for Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (left adductor strain) will be ready for training camp according to Nets GM Sean Marks.

Marks didn't go into detail, but it's nice to have an update because we've heard very little since he picked up the injury in early August. RHJ is the favorite to start as Brooklyn's small-ball four this season and will be a nice source of points, out-of-position assists, rebounds and defensive stats.
