• Jusuf Nurkic, Malik Beasley and Jamal Murray were each held out of Nuggets practice on Thursday for rest.

    Nuggets head coach Michael Malone talked to the media following Thursday’s practice and explained why he rested his players, “I think after four practices that’s when the load starts getting to a point where maybe you have to hold a couple guys out.” The Nuggets are just taking precautionary measures with their players during training camp and the players could return to the floor as early as day five of training camp. 

Fantasy News

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Lakers vs. Clippers game scheduled for Tuesday has been postponed after the passing of Kobe Bryant on Sunday.

    The Lakers had requested the postponement in light of the terrible news and the Clippers had no objection. Kawhi Leonard owners will want to keep tabs on the makeup date to see if it becomes a back-to-back situation. Paul George and Patrick Beverley get a bit more time to recover from their injuries. Montrezl Harrell and the Clippers will play the Kings on Thursday.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry (right hand neuritis) will not play on Tuesday.

    Bembry had a minor procedure on Friday, but he is not expected to be out for long. In the meantime, De'Andre Hunter could see a bit more action.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (bilateral Achilles soreness) is questionable for Monday's contest.

    Nunn was unable to play on Friday, leaving the door open for more contributions from Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro. The rookie has averaged 16.2 points and 3.5 assists, ranking him in the top 60 leaguewide in both categories.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (right ankle sprain) is considered questionable for Monday's game.

    Butler injured his ankle on Friday. Despite some mediocre shooting of late, he has delivered 20.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. Tyler Herro could be in for a big night against the Magic considering all the injuries for the Heat.

  • Bruno Fernando
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Bruno Fernando (left calf strain) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Fernando enjoyed a big game on Saturday but was forced to leave with the calf injury. He's not worth owning in most leagues.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Elie Okobo and Mikal Bridges are likely to see bumps in usage if Rubio is unavailable. Rubio went just 1-of-10 from the field on Sunday but ranks fourth in the league with 8.8 assists per game.

  • Javonte Green
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Javonte Green (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Green has averaged 4.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in his last ten games. That makes him a useful role player for the Celtics but not worth owning in fantasy circles. Brad Wanamaker could see a bit more action if Green doesn't play.

  • Enes Kanter
    C, Boston Celtics

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) will be held out of Tuesday's game.

    Kanter has missed two consecutive games, and Tuesday will mark the third. The production of Jayson Tatum and Daniel Theis have not left him with a useful role in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.

    Tatum hasn't played since Wednesday. Daniel Theis has assumed his spot in the starting lineup, scoring a total of 31 points with 15 rebounds over those two games.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook will be held out of Monday's game for rest purposes.

    Westbrook has been sitting out one half of back-to-backs, so this isn't surprising. Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers should get all the minutes they can handle against the Jazz.
