• PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington may be the favorite to start at SF on opening day per Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer.

    P.J. Washington, who had whispers of G League this summer, has put himself in a position to earn a starting job on opening day with Nicolas Batum (sore Achilles) still out. It's no secret the team wants to play their young guys, and the 12th pick in this year's draft is one of those players. Washington is moving up draft boards right now.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose, who dealt with right hamstring tightness, declared that he will be available to play on Monday.

    Rose had been considered a game-time decision but will be good to go. Luke Kennard and Tony Snell are still firmly in the rotation but may lose a few minutes apiece.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner has been ruled out of Tuesday's game due to a right ankle sprain.

    Turner was a limited participant in practice on Monday but is not yet ready for game action. JaKarr Sampson should have at least one more start in his future.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox sprained an ankle during practice on Monday, but the severity is unknown.

    We'll have to wait for further updates. Cory Joseph and Bogdan Bogdanovic would likely step in if Fox has to miss time.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose, who has right hamstring tightness, is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Wolves.

    Rose hasn't played since November 1 but seems to be getting closer to returning. Injuries are nothing new for Rose, but Tony Snell's minutes may take a hit if Rose rejoins the team.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton is expected to miss several weeks due to a left leg injury that occurred on Sunday against the Thunder.

    It sounded like the injury would not be too serious until this report emerged. At least there is no major damage in the leg. This is obviously not great news for the Bucks, but Sterling Brown and Ersan Ilyasova should get a bump in the medium term.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Shake Milton, who has been rehabbing due to a left knee bone bruise, is considered doubtful to face the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Milton will be examined on Tuesday morning, but it appears that he will sit out. Matisse Thybulle could have a bit less value when Milton is back in the rotation.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons, who missed Sunday's game with an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, is considered questionable to play on Tuesday.

    It's considered a minor injury, but the Sixers won't deploy Simmons unless they are confident that he is ready. Otherwise, Raul Neto should receive another start for the Sixers.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford will be rested on Tuesday as the Sixers take on the Cavs.

    The Sixers are just being careful with Horford as they navigate the long season. Expect Mike Scott to receive more opportunities on Tuesday.
