The Cavs are signing G Kobi Simmons to a one-year contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Grizzlies waived Simmons back in August, making him an unrestricted free agent. He appeared in 32 games for Memphis last season, averaging 6.1 points, 2.1 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per contest. He has a decent chance to make the Cavs 15-man roster but is highly unlikely to have fantasy relevance this season.

P.J. Tucker (illness) is expected to play Tuesday against the Nuggets.

He's officially being listed as questionable, but it looks like he'll continue to power through this illness, just like he did on Sunday. "Yeah, I take pride in playing games for sure," said Tucker after going through shootaround. "It takes a lot for me to miss a game. I don't like missing games. The Indiana game, I was pretty bad. I think most people wouldn't play at all. For me to play 39 minutes, it's pretty crazy." It sounds like owners can go ahead and plug Tucker into their active lineups for Tuesday night.

Jarrett Allen (illness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Allen missed Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves, which resulted in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson earning the start at the five-spot and Ed Davis saw his minutes in the 20s. We'll have a better idea on Allen's status following shootaround, but if he's out again, RHJ and Davis will again have the opportunity for extended minutes.

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) is being listed as "out" for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Westbrook has been ramping up his activities at recent practices, but until he's able to go through full contact, 5-on-5 work, he'll likely be watching from the sidelines. Wednesday will mark his fifth straight game out of the lineup, and it'll be Dennis Schroder and Paul George running the show on offense while he's out. The Thunder will play again on Saturday in Phoenix, and for now, we'll consider Westbrook questionable for that one.
Nov 13 - 4:10 PM

Wesley Matthews (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Matthews missed Monday's matchup with the Bulls, but it looks like the hamstring issue will only cost him one game. With Matthews back in action tomorrow night, Dorian Finney-Smith will return to the second unit and irrelevancy in fantasy hoops.

Robert Covington and Dario Saric were unable to practice on Tuesday due to not having been cleared by the league.

The paperwork still needs to go through on the Jimmy Butler deal, which Tom Thibodeau said he hopes becomes official by Tuesday afternoon. RoCo and Saric were, however, in attendance at Tuesday's practice, and they should both be cleared in time for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. Thibodeau said he didn't know if they would start right off the bat, but said the new additions will have a "significant role" on this Timberwolves team.

Caris LeVert might be able to make it back to the court in 2-3 months.

This speculative timetable is coming from Dr. David J. Chao, who has 17-plus years of experience as an orthopedic surgeon, but it needs to be noted that he didn't personally meet with LeVert and he has only worked with NFL teams. We should get an official timetable from Brooklyn relatively soon, but the main takeaway here is that gruesome injury wasn't as bad as it looked, initially. Owners with an open IR-spot might want to hold on until we get official word on the return date from Brooklyn.
Nov 13 - 3:07 PM

Damian Lillard (right knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Lillard sat out Tuesday's practice, but then got in a workout afterward and said he hopes to play on Wednesday. He spent about four hours rehabbing his right knee on Monday but said he's mostly just dealing with discomfort. He'll go through another workout on Wednesday before determining his status for that game, but as of right now, we'd expect him to play.
Nov 13 - 2:54 PM

Jonathan Isaac (right ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Isaac is making steady progress in his recovery from the ankle injury, and we'll have a better idea on his status following Wednesday's shootaround. If he is able to get back out there, Wesley Iwundu will return to the bench and Terrence Ross's value could take a bit of a hit. Stay tuned.
Nov 13 - 2:21 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) participated at Tuesday's practice.

Westbrook was able to do some running and cutting, but overall, it was a fairly light practice without any real contact, so it's unclear if he'll be able to get back to the court for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at shootaround, so owners can expect to get another update tomorrow afternoon.
Nov 13 - 2:08 PM

Caris LeVert has been diagnosed with a dislocated right foot that will not require surgery, and he is expected to return this season.

This qualifies as great news, considering the circumstances. When LeVert crumbled to the floor on Monday night, with his foot/ankle pointing the wrong way, it was assumed that he was dealing with a devastating injury that would sideline him for the entire 2018-19 season, and possibly beyond. However, per the Nets statement, there were no fractures and only moderate ligament damage and "(LeVert) is expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this season." We can expect an update on his status, with a firm timetable for his return, after LeVert leaves the hospital.
Nov 13 - 12:32 PM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one blocked shot in 38 minutes in Monday's win over Golden State.

Gilgeous-Alexander continues to make progress during his young career, and on Monday he extended his streak of scoring in double figures to three straight games. And the Kentucky product was efficient from a shooting standpoint, finishing the night 8-for-11 from the field. Over his last three games, Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game, shooting 55.6% from the field.
