• Anthony Davis
    F/C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Anthony Davis (left shoulder contusion) said he is unsure if he will play in the All-Star game on Sunday.

    Davis said the plan is to play, but we will have to wait and see if he's feeling okay. He's certainly not worried about saving himself for the second-half of the season.

Fantasy News

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) practiced in full on Sunday.

    This is great news and if he’s healthy enough he’ll likely start in the Hawks season opener. He’s a 3-point specialist and should have the opportunity to shoot many of them on this Hawks team.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce is undecided on who the starting shooting guard will be for the season opener vs. the Pistons.

    It’ll likely be Kevin Huerter (knee) if he’s deemed healthy enough to play. However, DeAndre Bembry and Cam Reddish have a shot at it too.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De’Andre Hunter will start in the Hawks’ season opener vs. the Pistons.

    This is great news for Hunter and his owners as it shows how much confidence they have in the rookie. He’ll likely be up and down throughout the season but he’ll have plenty of opportunity on this Hawks team.

  • Andre Roberson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Andre Robertson (left knee) went through contact practice on Sunday.

    Coach Billy Donovan still didn’t have a solid answer regarding Robertson’s availability for the Thunder’s season opener vs. the Jazz but this is good news. He’ll be a very big piece of OKC’s defensive scheme but won’t really provide much for fantasy owners outside of steals and a few blocks.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Coach Alvin Gentry wants to stick with J.J. Redick to begin the season .

    This is good news for Redick as he’ll continue to start even with Zion Williamson out. The Pels will likely move Brandon Ingram down to power forward and keep the rest of the lineup the same.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons want to award Christian Wood with a regular season roster spot for his strong preseason play.

    Wood and Joe Johnson had been competing throughout the entire preseason and the Pistons might end up keeping them both. The Pistons have got to move some things around to make him fit but he’ll be a valuable piece for them to hang onto going into the season.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moe Wagner (sore back) missed Sunday's practice but is expected to return soon.

    Wagner left Friday's preseason finale after taking a hard fall, but the Wizards think it's a short-term injury. He's a decent late-round target if you're in a 14- or 16-team league and should play a legitimate role backing up Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers is dealing with shoulder soreness but is expected to play in Thursday's regular-season opener.

    It's the first we've heard of Rivers' injury, so we expect him to be fine. He's not much of a fantasy target but will carry a big role with the Rockets likely losing Gerald Green for the season.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Mike D'Antoni is anticipating that Russell Westbrook (dislocated finger) will be able to play on Thursday.

    The Rockets revealed the injury late in the preseason, and Westbrook suffered another dislocation in Friday's preseason finale. It hasn't affected him yet outside of a precautionary removal from that contest, and we wouldn't hold this against Westbrook in any last-minute fantasy drafts.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isiah Thomas (left thumb surgery) practiced in full on Sunday.

    According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, coach Scott Brooks said "I'd love to have him for that first game but we'll see. Probably not but we'll see". It sounds like Thomas is close to returning but we likely won't see him in the Wizards' Oct.23 opener. He's worth taking a flier on later in drafts because he should have a good amount of opportunity with the Wizards roster lacking much talent.
