• Ed Davis
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Ed Davis (right ankle sprain) is a game-time decision on Monday.

    Davis was big in Game 1, as he gave the Nets some physical minutes and excellent work on the glass against Joel Embiid. His absence would really put the spotlight on Jarrett Allen, Jared Dudley (also questionable tonight) and possibly Rondae Hollis-Jefferson as the Nets scheme their way out of a major mismatch at the five.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) will be available to play Wednesday against the Hawks.

    Ntilikina is in competition for the starting point guard role with Dennis Smith Jr. and Elfrid Payton. Monitor this competition to see who wins out once the regular season arrives.

    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House Jr. will start in place of Eric Gordon on Wednesday as the Rockets take on the Spurs.

    The Rockets were hit with the injury bug as Gerald Green (broken left foot) was lost for the season. The team may be experimenting with the best rotations to maximize their ceiling. It is possible that House Jr. starts in place of Gordon this season so that Gordon gets easier matchups against second units. This is something to monitor once the regular season arrives but it is unlikely to change their projected minutes heading into the season.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. will start at point guard in Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Hawks.

    DSJ is in a competition for the starting point guard role with Frank Ntilikina and Elfrid Payton. Kevin Knox, Bobby Portis, R.J. Barrett, and Marcus Morris will join DSJ in the starting lineup. Wednesday's game will give coach Fizdale an opportunity to see how DSJ runs with the starting unit.

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk (right knee bruise) is probable for Thursday's preseason finale against the Magic.

    This would be great news for fantasy owners who drafted Olynyk towards the end of drafts as it seems more likely that he will be healthy for the start of the regular season. Olynyk might have a starting role in the frontcourt next to Bam Adebayo.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard (knee) and Derrick Rose (undisclosed) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale vs. the Hornets while Markieff Morris (illness) will be available.

    Preseason is a time of caution. None of these injuries are believed to be serious so expect Kennard and Rose to play in the season opener. Morris will likely play limited minutes in tonight's preseason finale.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (left hamstring soreness) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Griffin will be ready to roll once the games count. However, he does have a history of being "injury prone" so this is something to monitor when drafting, although it is probably not serious. Andre Drummond has the opportunity to breakout in DFS lineups tonight.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Jackson (back), Luke Kennard (knee) and Markieff Morris (illness) are all questionable for Wednesday's preseason matchup vs. the Hornets.

    The Pistons are likely exercising caution while the games don't matter. They will be ready once the regular season rolls around. Monitor their status ahead of tip-off for DFS lineups.

  • Amir Hinton
    PG, Free Agent

    The Knicks have waived point guard Amir Hinton on Wednesday.

    Hinton was unable to play in either of the Knicks' first two preseason games before being waived. Hinton may end up playing in the G-League and is not on the fantasy radar.

  • Tyler Cook
    PF, Free Agent

    The Nuggets have waived Tyler Cook who signed a two-way contract earlier this offseason.

    With Cook waived, the Nuggets now have one two-way contract available. They are likely to give this contract to a training camp invitee who has impressed. One name that has come up is P.J. Dozier. This transaction doesn't impact the fantasy landscape.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Pistons.

    Williams had a doubtful tag previously so it was never expected that he would suit up. Williams should be fine to play once the regular season rolls around but is likely going to see his minutes and production decline as the Hornets focus on developing their young talent. Look for Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington to get a lot of run in this preseason finale.
