• Jeff Teague
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague shot just 2-of-9 on Monday night, scoring six points to go with four rebounds, 10 assists, a block and a three.

    Teague has been one of Minnesota's best players so far but didn't look it tonight. He'll be fine going forward and was still able to check multiple boxes despite a rough night from the floor.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

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

    The rookie out of Nevada has missed most of the preseason action but he should get some run tonight. He is someone to monitor in deep (dynasty) leagues, as Charlotte is looking to give plenty of minutes to their young guys this year.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams is doubtful to face the Pistons on Wednesday due to an illness.

    This is a the preseason finale at home for the Hornets who are expected to use this season as an opportunity to develop their young players. Williams will most likely come off the bench and his fantasy value shall remain limited unless he gets traded at some point during the season.

  • Jaylen Adams
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks requested waivers on guard Jaylen Adams and forward Luke Maye on Monday.

    Signed as a free agent on August 20th, Adams appeared in two games for the Bucks this preseason and averaged 4.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.0 minutes per game. Meanwhile, Maye, undrafted out of the University of North Carolina, appeared in three games and averaged just 2.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 5.8 minutes per game.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, David Fizdale said that the next two games will be 'huge' in determining his opening night starter at point guard.

    Frank Ntilikina is competing with Dennis Smith Jr. and Elfrid Payton but no one seems to have the edge right now. DSJ will play on Wednesday night against the Hawks, after missing the first two preseason games with a back strain, and he will get the chance to impress his coach. Fizdale also mentioned that he wants to put the ball to RJ Barrett’s hands, while he sees Julius Randle and Marcus Morris as potential non-point guard ball-handlers in his offense, so this is definitely a situation to avoid for now.

  • Grayson Allen
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Grayson Allen has helped himself since joining the Grizzlies and he seems like a sure thing to be in the opening night rotation, and just maybe in the starting lineup.

    If the development of Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. is the most important item on the Grizzlies’ agenda during this season, a secondary goal will be finding this duo some running mates. On their expanded 17-man roster, the Grizzlies have seven wing players who are each under age 25, with none of them established as quality contributors. Preseason has generally gone pretty well for Allen, but the key for him above all else will probably be his 3-point shooting, where his high-volume style fits the coaching staff’s “let it fly” mantra. One thing is certain, there will be plenty of minutes available for the young core in Memphis this year and it remains to be seen who emerges with fantasy value.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic told the Sacramento Bee that the team has offered him a maximum contract extension, but he is in no hurry to sign it.

    Bogdanovic added that he would prefer to remain in Sacramento, but he could receive more lucrative offers if he waits to become a restricted free agent this summer. The Kings and Bogdanovic can come to an agreement anytime between now and June 30th, but he is eligible only for a $51.4 million extension because he signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Kings in 2017. His ability to stretch the floor is vital to the uptempo offense most NBA teams run these days, and he is coming off a breakout performance at the 2019 FIBA World Cup, so it make sense for him to wait until he hits the open market next year, in what looks to be a week free agent class.

  • Sindarius Thornwell
    SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs have waived guard Daniel Hamilton, forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, guard J.P. Macura and guard Sindarius Thornwell, General Manager Koby Altman announced on Tuesday.

    The Cavs are loaded with guards so it makes sense to release all the above. Cleveland’s roster now stands at 16, including Dean Wade, who is on a two-way deal.

  • Thomas Robinson
    C-F, Free Agent

    Thomas Robinson has reached an agreement with the Sichuan Blue Whales where he will replace Maciej Lampe, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

    Robinson played with the Spurs in the Summer League but he couldn’t materialize his performance into a training camp deal and he will head back overseas. The No. 5 overall pick by the Kings in the 2012 NBA draft, he averaged 21.9 points and 13.6 rebounds playing in China last year.

  • Norense Odiase
    , Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have waived guard David Kramer, center Norense Odiase and forward Tariq Owens, the team announced in a news release on Tuesday.

    All three players were in training camp on Exhibit 10 deals, meaning they very well could be headed to the Northern Arizona Suns of the G League. The Suns’ roster now stands at 16 players, with at least one more move needed before the regular season.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    In an interview with David Fizdale, the coach mentioned that he would sprinkle in some point guard time for RJ Barrett due to his comfort with the ball in his hands.

    Barrett handled the ball plenty at Duke and his 4.3 assists per game show he had some success (though his 3.2 turnovers show he has room for improvement). The Knicks have plenty of rotation players that will handle the ball in Elfrid Payton, Dennis Smith Jr. and Julius Randle, but this year should be all about developing their young players. Barrett should have nice assist numbers for a wing you can draft in the late rounds.
