• Alfonzo McKinnie
    F, Golden State Warriors

    The official NBA injury report is declaring Alfonzo McKinnie as probable for Tuesday’s game against the Celtics.

    McKinnie started for the Warriors on Saturday due to Klay Thompson sitting with a sore knee but only lasted seven minutes before leaving with a hip contusion. Thompson and Andre Iguodala are both questionable for tonight’s game and McKinnie along with Damion Lee and Jonas Jerebko will have to cover for them in case they have to sit. McKinnie deserves a look only in deep formats.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are planning to give Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell 30-35 minutes with the regular rotation around them in Friday's preseason matchup with the Lakers.

    It looks like the Warriors are going to make their best attempt at a regular-season dress rehearsal here. DFS players take note.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Steve Kerr said that Kevon Looney (right hamstring strain) will not play the rest of the preseason, but the team is hopeful to have him for the regular-season opener.

    The Warriors are counting on Looney to play a significant role for them this year, whether it is starting or off the bench. With Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) already out for the start of the regular season, the Warriors badly need Looney back on the court.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier (back spasms) participated in a portion of Tuesday's scrimmage.

    Fournier looks to be over his back issues and should be good to go for opening day next week. Fournier is a late-round target for assists and threes.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Coach Terry Stotts said that rookie Nassir Little (left ankle sprain) will not play in either of the team's remaining preseason games.

    Little is battling for backup wing minutes with a host of players and is unlikely to see enough time this year. Little can safely be ignored in fantasy drafts.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington may be the favorite to start at SF on opening day per Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer.

    P.J. Washington, who had whispers of G League this summer, has put himself in a position to earn a starting job on opening day with Nicolas Batum (sore Achilles) still out. It's no secret the team wants to play their young guys, and the 12th pick in this year's draft is one of those players. Washington is moving up draft boards right now.

  • Hasheem Thabeet
    C, Free Agent

    Hasheem Thabeet signed a G-League contract on Tuesday per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Thabeet had multiple workouts this summer but ultimately came up short on getting a camp invite. He'll play in the G League with an eye towards getting back in the NBA at some point if he shows well. Thabeet has no fantasy value.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Both Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura were wearing the white jerseys, joining Ish Smith, Bradley Beal and Thomas Bryant as starters in Tuesday's practice.

    There were whispers of the Wizards shifting the sharp-shooting Bertans up to the three spot as the team deals with a multitude of injuries, and this practice is a good indication of the team doing so. Bertans makes for a nice late-round pick for his propensity to knock down triples.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaiah Thomas (left thumb surgery) has been shooting with both hands recently but there is still no timetable for his return.

    Thomas is roughly four weeks post-surgery and looks to be getting closer to a return. He will miss the first chunk of games and then will compete with Ish Smith for minutes at the PG position. Thomas will have every opportunity to show that he still has it and makes for a fine late-round lottery ticket.

  • Reggie Hearn
    G, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have signed G Reggie Hearn to a contract and waived David Stockton in a corresponding move on Tuesday.

    Hearn, a six-year G League veteran out of Northwestern, will likely return to the G League after the preseason. He is off the fantasy radar.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) said that he will be ready to go for opening night.

    Lowry, who will turn 34 in March, also said that he feels better than ever and credited that to how he takes care of his body. The Raptors are going to need Lowry to be a scorer this year, and he will have every opportunity to do so.
