Brad Steven said he was unsure if Aron Baynes (hamstring) would accompany the team on their trip to Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Baynes did some light shooting and jogging at Tuesday's practice, but aside from that, he did not participate, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see him sit out Thursday's contest. If he doesn't travel with the team, there's a chance he could also miss Saturday's game in Detroit, which will translate to more minutes for Daniel Theis.

Lance Thomas (sore left knee) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. Miami.

He's starting and earning 18 minutes a night but has only managed to contribute averages of 3.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per contest. Leave him on the wire.
Oct 23 - 3:20 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

Whether he plays or not, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Oct 23 - 3:18 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle) will make his regular-season debut on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Dedmon will likely be limited in his first game back since suffering an avulsion fracture back in early-September, but it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like once he's fully up to speed. Alex Len was unproductive in his first two games with the Hawks, but he came through with a solid double-double on Sunday, so maybe he'll be able to hang onto the starting gig. Dedmon is just a low-end add in deep leagues if you're desperate for a big.
Oct 23 - 3:17 PM

Rodions Kurucs (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

Jared Dudley and Ed Davis could see a slight uptick in minutes on Wednesday with Kurucs unavailable, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. After Wednesday's game, the Nets will take on the Pelicans in New Orleans on Friday, and for now, we'll consider Kurucs questionable for that one.

Nets' head coach Kenny Atkinson said that Treveon Graham was dealing with a strained, not torn, hamstring, but would not offer a timetable for his return.

Shams Charania reported that Graham had torn his left hamstring, and he's one of the most reliable sources in the industry, so it's a bit strange that Atkinson is refuting that report. "It's a strain. That's our vernacular," said Atkinson after Tuesday's practice. "They must have access to other information. It's a strain. Still no timetable." Either way, Graham is set to miss a large chunk of time and belongs on the waiver wire in all formats.

Courtney Lee (neck) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against Miami.

Lee was in attendance at the Knicks' practice on Tuesday after visiting with a specialist on Monday, but it's unclear if he participated, and the Knicks haven't revealed any new details on this strange neck issue. For now, we'll consider him out indefinitely, and he should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Oct 23 - 2:49 PM

Alex Abrines (eye) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

While he sat out practice, Billy Donovan noted that he's not in the concussion protocol, so there's a chance he'll be available to play on Thursday. That said, he's irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Oct 23 - 2:46 PM

Jamal Murray (leg) is not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

Murray played through a left tibia contusion on Sunday, but the injury was never believed to be serious, and he is fully expected to be in the starting lineup for tonight's game. He was dreadful in his last game, missing all nine of his field goal attempts, but he should be able to bounce back tonight with a much more favorable matchup against Sacramento.
Oct 23 - 2:41 PM

Updating a previous report, James Ennis (right hamstring) is expected to miss the next 2-3 games for Houston.

With Chris Paul (suspended) also unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Michael Carter-Williams will move into the starting lineup alongside James Harden, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela. While MCW will see an uptick in minutes, we don't expect him to bring anything noteworthy to the boxscore. Mike D'Antoni said that Ennis' hamstring injury "wasn't too serious," so he should be back by next Wednesday.

An MRI revealed a moderate left MCL sprain for Kris Dunn and he is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks of action.

Dunn doesn't have a history of knee issues, but he has had a tough time staying on the court over the past few years, and he could be on the longer end of this timetable considering winning games isn't necessarily a priority for the Bulls this season. Cameron Payne, Ryan Arcidiacono, Tyler Ulis and Shaquille Harrison will divvy up the PG minutes in Chicago, but none of those guys are great targets in most settings. Look for Zach LaVine to spend more time running the offense in Dunn's absence.

Kosta Koufos (hamstring) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's game in Denver.

Even if he were healthy, he wouldn't play, as the Kings are committed to getting minutes to the young bigs on the roster. Koufos shouldn't be owned anywhere.
Oct 23 - 2:16 PM

Mike Muscala (left ankle) will be available to play on Tuesday in Detroit.

He was a full participant at Monday's practice, so it looks like he'll be making his regular-season debut tonight. He'll help bring some depth to Philadelphia's frontcourt, but it's tough to see him earning enough minutes to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.
Oct 23 - 2:13 PM

Andrew Wiggins (thigh) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Toronto.

Wiggings left Monday's game with a right quad contusion in the first quarter and was unable to return. Afterward, he told reporters that the injury isn't serious and that he planned to play Wednesday. Wiggins has only missed one game in his entire NBA career. In addition, he is one of the best Canadian-born players in the league would love to play in front of the folks in Toronto. We should have confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Oct 23 - 1:18 PM

James Johnson (groin) practiced with the team on Tuesday but has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

The good news is that Johnson has now practiced two days in a row. The Heat understandably wants to make sure he is as close to 100 percent as possible before allowing him to play in a game, as they don't want the issue lingering. Nonetheless, it appears he is moving in the right direction an could be cleared later this week.
