Kevin Porter Jr. (hip) shot 3-for-9 from the field for eight points, three boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.
KPJ has had an up-and-down preseason and offseason, but it was nice to see him back on the floor after his hip injury. His path to playing time is a bit crowded to start the season, but he could see more time later in the season once the Cavs begin their youth movement.

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.
We'll have to wait for further updates. Cory Joseph and Bogdan Bogdanovic would likely step in if Fox has to miss time.

Derrick Rose, who has right hamstring tightness, is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Heat.
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.

Troy Daniels will have a precautionary MRI after tweaking his right knee during practice.
Daniels is coming off a nice game against the Raptors in which he scored 11 points. However, his playing time has been sporadic overall and an injury wouldn't help matters.

Anthony Davis has a sore right shoulder but is considered probable to face the Suns on Tuesday.
Lakers coach Frank Vogel was noncommittal when asked if this could be a season-long shoulder issue. Davis did practice on Monday which bodes well for his playing in Phoenix.

Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.
Rondo was hoping to make his season debut on Sunday but was eventually ruled out. His minutes are likely to be limited at first even when he does return.
