February 24, 2019, 1:43 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner (bruised left hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pistons.
If Turner does miss this game that will be three straight which obviously won't be good for his owners. The Pacers have won four of their last five games and seem to be doing just fine without Victor Oladipo. They are the third seed in the East right now and still two games ahead of the 76ers so they might be cautious with Turner to ensure that he's ready for the playoffs. Expect Kyle O'Quinn and Domantas Sabonis to get some more time if Turner can't go again.

June 19, 2019, 11:23 amMichael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets
Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has opted into his $13M player option for the 2019-20 season.
Ugh! This comes a week after Marvin Williams exercised his $15 million player option putting the Hornets in a tough financial situation. It’s highly unlikely that MKG would have commanded a salary anywhere close to $10 million per year in an open market so this was a no brainer for him. Kidd-Gilchrist is only 25 years old and is coming off a couple seasons where he struggled with injuries while the lack of a reliable jumper makes it hard for him to have value in today’s space and pace offense.

Bucks All-Star forward Khris Middleton is declining his $13M player option and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Middleton is expected to command a five-year max contract but he and the Bucks are planning to work together toward a new long-term deal. Middleton recently bought a new property in Milwaukee and Giannis has openly vouched for his teammate so we’d be shocked if the two parties don’t end up agreeing on a new deal. There will be plenty of suitors that can only offer him a four-year max deal, with the Lakers rumored to be one of them.
