• Iman Shumpert
    G, Sacramento Kings

    Iman Shumpert (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's contest vs. the Grizzlies.

    Shumpert has been a nice surprise for the Kings so far producing top-60 value thanks to 58 percent shooting from the field and 1.3 steals per game. He has solid short-term value until Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) comes back, in which case will likely cut his minutes in half. Shump is playing himself nicely into a trade so the motivation for him to play hard and the Kings to showcase him are high. Deep leagues should target him because he will still retain value if he is traded.

  • Rodney McGruder
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Rodney McGruder (right ankle sprain) has been listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers.

    McGruder has been out for a few weeks but might be close to returning based on the fact that he had been questionable for the opener until recently. With Paul George out for a while, McGruder could see regular minutes once he returns.

  • Devontae Cacok
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Devontae Cacok and Demetrius Jackson have been waived by the Lakers.

    Cacok had some nice summer league and preseason games, but it'll be tough for him to crack an NBA rotation. Demetrius Jackson has played in just 26 NBA games since being drafted in the second round three years ago.

  • Derrick Walton Jr.
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Derrick Walton Jr. made the final Clippers' roster and has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal.

    Walton has bounced around for quite a while, having played overseas last year. He's unlikely to get many minutes, but he could potentially get a championship ring if he sticks around.

  • Shamorie Ponds
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Shamorie Ponds will join the Raptors on two-way deal after being waived by the Rockets on Saturday.

    The rookie out of St. John's will get a shot with the Raptors, or more likely their G League affiliate. In fantasy, there's no need to keep an eye on Ponds unless the Raptors find themselves in tear-down mode. He had some amazing college numbers, so there's a chance he finds success in the league.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles has signed a one-year extension worth $14 million to remain with the Jazz through 2021-22.

    Ingles has thrived as a member of the starting lineup the two last seasons. Last campaign he averaged 12.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.2 steals while shooting 39 percent on threes. He should have top-90 value going forward.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis will not have his minutes restricted to begin the season, according to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel.

    Expect a fluid situation as the season goes along, but the Lakers plan to unleash their big acquisition. Davis should be the top pick in many leagues this season. His production has always been elite, but it will be interesting to see how Davis meshes with new teammates in games that count.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Lakers coach Frank Vogel stated that LeBron James will not face a minutes restriction to begin the season.

    This is good news for LeBron owners, but the situation may change as the season progresses. King James won't even be the first Laker taken in most fantasy drafts, but he is still a worthy pick within the top 10-12 selections.

  • Wenyen Gabriel
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Wenyen Gabriel has made the roster for the Kings and has been given a regular NBA contract.

    Gabriel was on a two-way deal last season but the Kings clearly like his potential. He is unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season.

  • Tyler Lydon
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings have waived Tyler Lydon.

    Lydon signed a two-year deal in July, but very little of it was guaranteed. The Syracuse product was drafted in 2017 by the Nuggets but has played very sparingly in the NBA.

  • Daquan Jeffries
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    DaQuan Jeffries has signed a two-way contract with the Kings.

    Jeffries was recently waived by the Magic. He averaged 13.0 points and 5.6 rebounds in his senior year at the University of Tulsa. He is unlikely to have a fantasy impact.
