• Luke Kornet
    F/C, New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet started and played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale, scoring six points to go with two rebounds and 2 assists.

    The UniKornet showed multiple times throughout the 18-19 campaign that he has a golden fantasy stat-set, having many games where he piled up cash-counters. The only problem was that Coach David Fizdale never felt comfortable letting him loose full-time, resulting in a mediocre top-190 value on the year. A path to playing time in New York doesn't seem to be getting any clearer with their eyes set on big prizes in free agency, dashing the hopes of anyone hoping for an expanded role heading into next season.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside left Wednesday's game early after jamming his finger on the rim on a block attempt.

    It's possible that he doesn't return to this one as the Blazers need to be cautious with their lack of depth in the middle. We'll update this situation as it progresses. Zach Collins figures to get a lot of burn while he is out.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges went to the locker room early on Wednesday holding a towel pressed to his face.

    There has been no word on what exactly happened to him, and it appears unlikely that he will return. We expect to have an update on his status moving forward soon.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Cory Joseph (sore calf) says that he's feeling better and expects to be ready for the Kings' season opener.

    Joseph had been dealing with both the calf injury and an illness that apperently has been going around the Kings' locker room. It still seems like he won't get in on preseason action, putting him a tad behind on meshing with his new team. He should really only be a backup PG this year and holds no fantasy value.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry (rest) will not play in Wednesday's preseason tilt against the Lakers.

    No surpises here, as it was reported on Monday that he was likely to sit this one out. Jacob Evans wll get the start, and should actually see decent time handling the ball playing next to D'Angelo Russell.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams returned to game action on Wednesday after tweaking his elbow.

    It was originally reported that he tweaked his shoulder but turns out it didn't really matter either way. It doesn't matter how banged up he gets, Adams will always find his way back onto the court. Nerlens Noel fans can take a seat for now.

    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams appeared to tweak his shoulder and went to the locker room during a timeout in Wednesday's preseason game aganst the Grizzlies.

    We'll provide updates to this situation as it develops. Adams is an iron man so it's quite possible this is all just precautionary. Should he miss time though, Nerlens Noel becomes a very intriguing name that teams should consider in standard league formats.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe (ribs) went through non-contact drills during practice on Wednesday.

    Bledsoe was slapped with a two to three week timetable for his fractured rib cartilage just five days ago, so his quickness in jumping back into practice activities raise some optimism that he can get back on the earlier side of that diagnosis. Bledsoe has potential as a safe pick in a hot market for point guards this season. Owners shouldn't let this injury steer them away from taking him in drafts.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson will miss Wednesday's preseason game against the Grizzlies following an auto accident he was involved in on his way to the arena.

    Ferguson is reported to be fine and the team says he suffered no injuries, so it sounds like he's, if anything, just a bit shaken up. Darius Bazley should get an extended look in this one.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (right knee) had a setback over the weekend that has forced him to miss Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

    This is concerning news for those who drafted Huerter around pick-110 in redraft leagues as he has yet to make his preseason debut. For those of you who haven't drafted, it is plausible to drop Huerter down a round or two with this news. Unlike most other injuries that occur in the preseason, this one seems like it is worth monitoring as we inch closer towards opening night. If Huerter does end up missing time, expect rookies Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter to play more minutes.

  • Tyson Chandler
    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler (rest) will not play in Wednesday's matchup against the Spurs.

    Chandler will have another opportunity to take the court in the Rockets' preseason finale against the Heat on Friday. Chandler, 37, has not been on the fantasy radar in a few seasons and will not re-emerge on the scene this season. On select nights, he will be a low-cost option in DFS contests when the Rockets are without Clint Capela.
