• Brandon Ingram
    F, Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Ingram brought the defense on Thursday, swatting three shots with a steal to go with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while adding a rebound and three assists.

    Ingram's on/off splits with LeBron James have been widely publicized by now and it looks like Coach Walton is taking note of that as he staggered them more tonight. Although he didn't close out the game, he looked more comfortable playing without James and with more freedom on offense. Ingram still has a ways to go until he's a mid-round fantasy asset but if the stagggered minutes continue it's a good sign.

  • Ahmad Caver
    G, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies have signed G Ahmad Caver to a contract on Tuesday while waiving waived guard Dusty Hannahs in a corresponding move.

    The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, but it's likely to get Caver on the team's G-League affiliate. The undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion, Caver, does not hold any fantasy value.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin (right ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Martin has missed too much valuable time to put himself in the early season conversation. Martin will have a chance to get playing time when he gets healthy, but he is not on the fantasy radar to start the year.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (illness) is listed as probable vs the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Williams is the elder statesman on a team looking at getting an early lottery pick and develop their young guys. Williams is expected to come off the bench, with a potential trade looming at some point this season.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets are listing Nicolas Batum (sore right Achilles) as out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Batum is starting to look extremely questionable for opening day. With the team already intent on developing their younger guys, there is a chance that Batum doesn't get his starting job back should the injury continue to linger. P.J. Washington is a name to consider towards the end of drafts.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (knee) missed Tuesday's practice after twisting his knee against the Bulls on Sunday, but the team expects him to be back soon.

    Although McCaw seems to win a ring every year, he's likely to start the year in a reserve role where his value is limited. McCaw is not on the standard-league radar.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (rest) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

    Gasol is getting eased back into the swing of things after a long FIBA World Cup run, but the 34-year-old will be ready for the regular-season opener.

  • Damyean Dotson
    SG, New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson (right shoulder surgery) practiced on Tuesday and is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Dotson averaged 10.7 points as a reserve for the Knicks last year and will likely be in a similar role. He is a deep-league option for points, but he will face a lot more competition for minutes this year as the Knicks brought in Wayne Ellington and R.J. Barrett this offseason.

  • Allonzo Trier
    PG, New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (strained neck) is probable to face the Hawks on Wednesday after returning to practice on Tuesday.

    Trier is going to be relied on as a scorer off the bench but will struggle to find enough consistent minutes to be worthy of a look outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Kevin Knox
    SF, New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox (sore right calf) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks after returning to practice on Tuesday.

    Knox returns to a crowded forward rotation where he is expected to slot in as the backup SF behind Marcus Morris. After a disappointing rookie year, Knox is off the standard-league radar.
