• LeBron James
    F, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James tallied his 79th triple-double with a 23-12-11 line to go with three steals on Monday.

    James is now fifth all-time in triple-doubles, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain tonight but his line wasn't enough to push the Lakers past the Grizzlies. Even though he's activated "playoff mode", the Lakers still can't get wins against sub .500 teams which is concerning for the team, but good for fantasy owners. James is going to continue to log heavy minutes and do all he can to get the Lakers into the playoff picture.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moe Wagner (sore back) missed Sunday's practice but is expected to return soon.

    Wagner left Friday's preseason finale after taking a hard fall, but the Wizards think it's a short-term injury. He's a decent late-round target if you're in a 14- or 16-team league and should play a legitimate role backing up Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers is dealing with shoulder soreness but is expected to play in Thursday's regular-season opener.

    It's the first we've heard of Rivers' injury, so we expect him to be fine. He's not much of a fantasy target but will carry a big role with the Rockets likely losing Gerald Green for the season.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Mike D'Antoni is anticipating that Russell Westbrook (dislocated finger) will be able to play on Thursday.

    The Rockets revealed the injury late in the preseason, and Westbrook suffered another dislocation in Friday's preseason finale. It hasn't affected him yet outside of a precautionary removal from that contest, and we wouldn't hold this against Westbrook in any last-minute fantasy drafts.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isiah Thomas (left thumb surgery) practiced in full on Sunday.

    According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, coach Scott Brooks said "I'd love to have him for that first game but we'll see. Probably not but we'll see". It sounds like Thomas is close to returning but we likely won't see him in the Wizards' Oct.23 opener. He's worth taking a flier on later in drafts because he should have a good amount of opportunity with the Wizards roster lacking much talent.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    According to Keith Smith , a handful of teams who need help at point guard have reached out to the Pistons about acquiring Khyri Walker.

    The Pistons are considering trading the young lead guard rather than having his contract take up space on their books for the next two years. He'd be better off in place with less point guard depth than the Pistons but it's unlikely he holds much fantasy value regardless.

  • Aubrey Dawkins
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have signed and waived Aubrey Dawkins.

    This was a move to get Dawkins eligible for the Pel's G-League team and doesn't have much significance in fantasy.

  • Troy Williams
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns both signed and waived Troy Williams on Sunday.

    He spent last season on a two-way contract with the Kings and this was a move done to make him eligible to play for the Suns in the G-League. He won't hold any fantasy value this season.

  • Donta Hall
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons have waived Donta Hall and Tre'Shawn Thurman.

    Hall was signed to an Exhibit 10 and he just wasn't needed on the Pistons' active roster and the same goes for Thurman. Neither one of them should have any fantasy value this season.

  • Tyus Battle
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves have waived Tyus Battle and Barry Brown Jr.

    They're still one over the roster maximum so they'll have to waive one more guy but regardless this move doesn't hold much weight in the realm of fantasy.

  • Tyler Ennis
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have signed and waived Tyler Ennis.

    Ennis will head to the G League and look to reestablish himself by working with the development staff at Raptors 905. It's been a while since we've seen Ennis hit the radar, as he spent last season in Turkey.
