Treveon Graham (left leg) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday.

It did not look good. Graham could not put weight on his left leg as his teammates helped him to the locker room. Hopefully, it isn't as bad as it looks with Graham earning minutes on this squad. We will see more Rodion Kurucs and Jared Dudley tonight.

Wesley Johnson is on the inactive list for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

He was recently acquired from the Clippers and does have a chance to earn minutes on a thin wing rotation over the next few weeks.

Updating a previous item, J.R. Smith (elbow) is available to play against the Wolves on Friday, but he is not expected to play.

The lineup sheet had him as inactive, but it was apparently wrong. This doesn't mean he'll necessarily play after missing the opener, but downgrade Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson for now.

JaMychal Green (left knee soreness) is starting on Friday vs. the Hawks.

He was listed as probable on the previous injury report, and he also battled through a shoulder tweak earlier in the week. Green may not be 100 percent and Jaren Jackson Jr. is going to push for his minutes, but he's in a great spot to produce tonight against one of the worst teams in the NBA.

Marc Gasol (back) will start on Friday night against the Hawks.

He was a game-time call and apparently everything in warmups went well today. Gasol could be less than 100 percent and the early-season injury will be something to keep an eye on. For now, Jaren Jackson Jr. should still be viewed as a player who should trend up in the near future.

J.R. Smith (elbow) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

His right elbow soreness is not the same injury as his hip injury in the preseason, and this elbow problem will keep him out for at least two games to start the year. With him out, it'll be Jordan Clarkson and Rodney Hood handling the SG minutes while Cedi Osman should continue to see minutes in the mid 30s at the three. Smith should be back soon, but he's not worth stashing in most leagues.
Oct 19 - 7:35 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) did some contact in shootaround on Friday.

This was the first contact practice for him, which means he's getting closer. The Hawks are thin at center right now and they're going to have to play Alex Poythress behind Alex Len in tonight's game. Dedmon will likely have some minutes restrictions upon his return, so he's not much of a stash.
Oct 19 - 7:28 PM

Marc Gasol (back) is on the active list for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

This doesn't mean it's a lock that he will play, as he's still considered a game-time call. We'll have another update shortly. We're also awaiting word on JaMychal Green (knee, probable).
