Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers to a 112-102 victory over the Lakers on Tuesday by posting 30 points (10-of-19 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.
It appears that the NBA Finals MVP is still good. There had been some concern that the injuries that hobbled Leonard in the playoffs were still lingering, but he looks like he's ready to carry a new team into championship contention already. We all know the story with Leonard. If he plays over 70 games, he'll almost certainly have been a steal in fantasy drafts.

Malik Beasley is considered questionable to play on Tuesday due to illness.
Beasley has only scored eight points in his last four appearances. However, Will Barton and Michael Porter Jr. could benefit slightly if Beasley is unable to suit up.

Derrick Rose, who dealt with right hamstring tightness, declared that he will be available to play on Monday.
Rose had been considered a game-time decision but will be good to go. Luke Kennard and Tony Snell are still firmly in the rotation but may lose a few minutes apiece.

Myles Turner has been ruled out of Tuesday's game due to a right ankle sprain.
Turner was a limited participant in practice on Monday but is not yet ready for game action. JaKarr Sampson should have at least one more start in his future.

De'Aaron Fox sprained an ankle during practice on Monday, but the severity is unknown.

Derrick Rose, who has right hamstring tightness, is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Wolves.
Rose hasn't played since November 1 but seems to be getting closer to returning. Injuries are nothing new for Rose, but Tony Snell's minutes may take a hit if Rose rejoins the team.

Khris Middleton is expected to miss several weeks due to a left leg injury that occurred on Sunday against the Thunder.
It sounded like the injury would not be too serious until this report emerged. At least there is no major damage in the leg. This is obviously not great news for the Bucks, but Sterling Brown and Ersan Ilyasova should get a bump in the medium term.

Shake Milton, who has been rehabbing due to a left knee bone bruise, is considered doubtful to face the Cavs on Tuesday.
Milton will be examined on Tuesday morning, but it appears that he will sit out. Matisse Thybulle could have a bit less value when Milton is back in the rotation.

Ben Simmons, who missed Sunday's game with an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, is considered questionable to play on Tuesday.
It's considered a minor injury, but the Sixers won't deploy Simmons unless they are confident that he is ready. Otherwise, Raul Neto should receive another start for the Sixers.

Al Horford will be rested on Tuesday as the Sixers take on the Cavs.
The Sixers are just being careful with Horford as they navigate the long season. Expect Mike Scott to receive more opportunities on Tuesday.
