• Kris Dunn (concussion) will not play in Sunday’s Summer League game against the Suns.

    Dunn has been impressive during his time in Las Vegas, but it seems we won’t be seeing him on the court again until preseason. While it has been nice to see Dunn’s potential, the Wolves depth at the guard position continues to make him a risky player to draft unless Rubio is moved.

Fantasy News

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell came off the bench on Friday to add 16 points (6-for-11 shooting), three assists, three triples, two rebounds and a steal in a Raptors win.

    Powell continues to be on a hot streak and he's worth riding until he cools off unless you can flip him for a top-75 type asset. Serge Ibaka was also productive in only 20 minutes off the bench, scoring 14 points (6-for-11 shooting), two triples and two blocks.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle compiled 20 points (7-for-15 shooting), 11 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, a steal and a triple as the Knicks fell to the Raptors 112-118.

    This is the type of line fantasy managers had in mind when selecting Randle in the early to mid-rounds in drafts. Unfortunately these nights have been too few and far between.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris dropped in 21 points (7-for-15 shooting), 10 rebounds, three triples and two assists in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

    Morris played more minutes than anyone on the team with 37, riding that usage to a productive fantasy night as he's done all year.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton finished Friday's loss to the Raptors with 13 points (5-for-11 shooting), 11 assists, four rebounds, two steals and a triple.

    Payton was second on the team in minutes and appears to be someone that shouldn't be left on any waiver wires. Assists are hard to come by and Payton provides them when he's healthy.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden managed to return to Friday's game and even started in the fourth quarter after briefly experiencing tightness in his thigh.

    No worries. At least not now. Harden is tough as nails and it's good to see him back and ready to close this game out.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis played 27 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 12 points (5-for-8 shooting), four rebounds, three assists and a triple.

    Portis played more minutes than starters Reggie Bullock (11 points, three rebounds, one assist) and Taj Gibson (four points, five rebounds, two assists, one block). It's tough to predict which Knicks bench player will produce each night.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden experienced some tightness in his thigh and went to the locker room on Friday to loosen it up on an exercise bike.

    His return is up in the air right now and it all depends on how well Harden's thigh responds to the therapy. He's one of the toughest cookies in the league, so there's a good chance he guts this one out.

  • Damyean Dotson
    SG, New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson caught fire off the bench on Friday, scoring 21 points (7-for-10 shooting), four triples, a rebound and a steal.

    Dotson needed only 27 minutes to tie for the team lead in scoring. This was an unsustainable shooting display from Dotson coming on a night the Knicks were dealing with some injuries. Nothing to see here at this time.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len has a right hip flexor strain and will not return to Friday's game.

    Len managed to play 14 minutes in this one but missed all three shot attempts from the field to finish with zero points, four rebounds, one steal and three blocks. The defensive numbers may have been candy, but Len's lack of durability has been lemon-sour and he can be left on the wire until he's 100 percent right.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder is in a nasty funk and it found a new low on Friday with the forward recording seven rebounds, three assists and one steal, going scoreless as he missed his only two shot attemps from the field (both 3s).

    Crowder is not the 3-and-D guy you're holding out for, at least not lately with him flirting with top-240 value over the last two weeks. Needless to say, it's time to drop him for a more productive fella off the wire.
