Otto Porter (load management) is expected to play on a minutes limit and monitored in back-to-backs.
Bulls head coach Jim Boylan said he'll be looking to play Porter roughly 30 minutes per game. While it's not a hard minutes restriction, it does put a slight hamper on Porter's fantasy value heading into the season.

Shaq Harrison (hamstring) is expected to be available for the season opener on Wednesday.
Harrison practiced in full on both Saturday and Sunday and did not face any setbacks. He will be clawing for minutes and does not warrant a look in anything but deeper leagues.

Ben Simmons (back tightness) fully participated in practice on Sunday.
Simmons missed the final two preseason games, but he looks to be good to go for opening night. It is worth mentioning that Raul Neto (left hamstring) and the rest of the Sixers will be entering the season without any injury designations as well.

Alex Caruso (pelvis bone contusion) is being listed as day-to -day.
The MRI didn’t reveal anything too serious and Caruso shouldn’t be out long. He’ll should have a spot in the Lakers’ rotation so he’ll be worth a late round flier in deeper leagues.

Cam Reddish will play around 20 minutes in the Hawks season opener vs. the Pistons.
If Kevin Huerter (knee) isn’t healthy enough to play then Reddish could get the start but we’ll have to wait and see. He’s worth a late round flier in most drafts.

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.

October 20, 2019, 3:21 pmKevin HuerterSG, 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 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.

October 20, 2019, 2:46 pmAndre RobersonSG, 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.
