• Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love has opted not to attend Team USA training camp for the FIBA World Cup.

    Love joins the growing list of stars deciding to preserve themselves for the NBA season rather than play for the U.S Team. For Love in particular this move makes sense given how much of last season he missed to injury, likely resulting in a cautious approach to the offseason. Love figures to be a go for the Cavs when they open the season, and has the potential to post early-round value.

Fantasy News

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke (calf) is being listed as qustionable to face the Cavs on Tuesday.

    If Burke can't go, there will be a few extra minutes to go around in the Sixers guard rotation. It may not amount to much of anything if Ben Simmons (game-time decision) can play.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers upgraded Shake Milton (knee) to probable to play against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Milton's return will cut into the guard rotation of the Sixers, but he doesn't carry enough value to be on the fantasy radar right now.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (shoulder) is being upgraded to a game-time decsion ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    If Simmons can't go, Raul Neto should get another start and is worth a streaming look.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have upgraded Rajon Rondo (calf) to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Rondo must have looked good in shootaround and will make his 2019-20 season debut on Tuesday. He is likely to be eased back into the lineup with all of the depth tht the Lakers have, but could eventually work his way into the starting lineup. He is more of a wait-and-see guy unless you are desperate for assists.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee (fractured right hand) is out at least the next two weeks after getting an MRI on Tuesday.

    The Warriors continue to take a beating up and down their roster. Alec Burks and Jordan Poole will see extra minutes while Lee is out.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet (left ankle sprain) avoided a significant injury as an MRI revealed a grade 2 high ankle sprain, and he remains without a timetable for return.

    Shamet is probably looking at a few weeks of absence, but this is a win for the Clippers. The bigger hit to Shamet's value will come in the form of Paul George, who is set to make his Clippers debut on Thursday against the Pelicans.

  • Daryl Macon
    PG, Miami Heat

    Daryl Macon has rejoined the Heat ahead of Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    With the Heat dealing with a multitude of injuries, the team needed another fresh body off the bench. Macon may see a few minutes tonight, but there is little fantasy value to be found here.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee arthroscopy) is being listed as probable to make his season debut against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Crabbe hasn't played in an NBA game since March 13th, 2019 and will likely be eased into game action over the coming weeks. Crabbe is a career 39 percent shooter from deep and could be a 3-point specialist if he can work his way into the rotation.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (left ankle sprain) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Len will come off the bench in favor of Damian Jones in this one. Len came into the season with what looked like a sure-fire job and a ton of minutes, but he has done everything in his power to get himself benched up to this point. He can be left on the waiver wire until further notice.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Damian Jones will start Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, with Alex Len coming off the bench.

    Len's stock continues to plummet with each passing day. Jones has averaged 10.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.9 blocks per 36 minutes for his career and makes for a deeper league pickup for teams looking to get cheap big man stats.
