Elfrid Payton (finger surgery) said he has not penciled in any dates for a return but said "soon though" in regards to his return.
Payton had surgery just over four weeks ago and was given an initial six-week timeline, so soon seems to be fairly accurate. Payton is a hold and if anyone dropped him you can scoop him up. He should be a week or two away.
