• Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker filled up the stat sheet in Monday's thrashing of the Bulls in Summer League (109-72), dropping 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting.

    The kid did it all as he hit three treys, added two rebounds, eight dimes, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes of action. He's got a great skill and stat set for sure, but given the Pelican's depth, he will have some serious competition for those backcourt minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on him in the preseason.

Fantasy News

  • Evan Turner
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) and Chandler Parsons (left knee soreness) are both listed as probable for their upcoming matchup against the Pistons on Friday.

    Turner could have a larger playmaking role within the offense if Cam Reddish (left wrist sprain), who is currently listed as questionable, ends up sitting out. Parsons is irrelevant for fantasy purposes while Turner is best left for 18-team leagues or deeper.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish is questionable for Friday's contest against the Pistons as he nurses a left wrist sprain.

    Reddish has been on a recent hot streak, scoring in double digits in each of his last three contests. He will likely not have value worthy of standard leagues in his rookie season but is a name to watch for down the road. He is currently on pace to to finish with top 250/300 per-game value. If he is unable to suit up, expect Evan Turner (probable), Allen Crabbe and DeAndre' Bembry to see additional minutes as a result.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke is listed as questionable on the injury report for Friday's tilt vs. the Spurs.

    Burke has only played in four contests with his new team and is in competition for the backup role with Raul Neto. Burke performed well on Wednesday in a limited role off the bench. Even in deeper leagues, he is best left on the wire until he becomes a consistent member of the rotation.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanović is listed as questionable for Friday's contest against the Nets with left hamstring tightness.

    Bogdanović has performed very well with the absence of De'Aaron Fox and should continue to see plenty of opportunity if he is able to play. If he ends up sitting out, expect Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes to see all the opportunity they can handle while Yogi Ferrell, Trevor Ariza and Cory Joseph will be asked to take on more of the offensive load. Rookie Kyle Guy could even see his first minutes of his career with all of the injuries that the Kings are dealing with.

  • Derrick White
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White (left foot soreness) is questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Sixers.

    White missed Wednesday's game, a game that saw the Spurs extend their losing streak to seven. Coach Gregg Popovich elected to change up his starting lineup to try and inject some scoring from the guard position as he started Patty Mills over Dejounte Murray. It is possible that Popovich continues to roll with a backcourt of Mills and Forbes who are the most consistent outside shooters on their roster outside of specialist Marco Belinelli. If White is healthy, it will be interesting to see how the rotation shakes out against a formidable opponent.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. (hip) and KZ Okpala (Achilles) will not travel with the team on their upcoming road trip over the weekend as they face the Bulls and Sixers.

    Jones has at times been a part of the rotation for the Heat while Okpala has barely seen the court. Jones has showed tremendous athleticism but it seems unlikely that he can produce fantasy value worthy of standard league value as the Heat will have many mouths to feed when they are fully healthy.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (concussion protocol) will miss their next two games against the Bulls and Sixers this weekend as he will not travel with the team.

    Winslow will be missing his seventh and eighth consecutive contests this weekend after a great start to his fifth year in the league. It is unclear if he will be given the same role in the rotation when he is able to return so it would be risky to keep him on your bench in standard leagues. However, he did produce good value across his first three starts of the season and was averaging 36.2 minutes across 5 games before he got hurt.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving is dealing with a shoulder injury that will cause him to miss Friday's contest against the Kings.

    He was unable to practice on Thursday so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. This will mark Kyrie's fourth straight absence and no timetable has been established for his expected return. In his absence, expect Spencer Dinwiddie to continue to see a significant bump in minutes and usage while there will be plenty of shots to go around. Kyrie has been averaging 22.9 field goal attempts per game which will be divided amongst several players on their roster.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen is probable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Kings as he is dealing with a right ankle sprain.

    Allen has seen his average in minutes dip slightly from last season's numbers (26.2 in 2018-19 vs. 25.6 in 2019-20) which is likely due to the addition of DeAndre Jordan. Allen is still producing solid fantasy value but could produce greater value if he was given more opportunity. Continue to monitor for updates but it looks likely that Allen will suit up on Friday.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House Jr. is listed as doubtful ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Clippers.

    House has had an excellent start to the season, providing mid-round value thus far. If he is forced to miss the contest, expect Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers to see an uptick in minutes but neither are recommended pickups outside of much deeper leagues.
