• Patty Mills
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Patty Mills was the star for Australia, scoring 34 points and hitting four triples against Spain, but Australia fell in double overtime 95-88.

    Mills did as much as he could but he just didn't get enough help from his supporting cast. Joe Ingles couldn't find the basket and only had four points (to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists). With that off night of shooting from Ingles, the Aussies needed someone like Matthew Dellavedova (six points) or Aron Baynes (six points) to step up.

Fantasy News

  • Matt Mooney
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies announced that they have waived guard Matt Mooney.

    Mooney logged three minutes in preseason play. This doesn't affect the fantasy landscape at all.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay (left hamstring soreness) is questionable for Monday's game after going through practice on Sunday.

    Mudiay has missed the last two preseason games but should be able to win the backup point guard job anyway given Dante Exum's own injury troubles. He's a handcuff for Mike Conley but won't have standalone fantasy value.

  • Tyler Ulis
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings are listing Tyler Ulis (right groin strain) as out for Monday's preseason game.

    As the fifth point guard on the depth chart, Ulis has almost no chance of making the final roster. His absence won't change anything for fantasy purposes.

  • Andre Roberson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Andre Roberson (left knee) will remain sidelined during Monday's preseason game with the Mavs.

    Roberson was hoping to play in the preseason to get ready for the real deal, but the Thunder haven't cleared him for that just yet. OKC's wing group is full of question marks and a healthy Roberson could end up starting, but there's just too much uncertainty around his recovery to endorse him as a fantasy selection outside the deepest of leagues.

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    The Heat will be without Kelly Olynyk (right knee bruise) for Monday's preseason game.

    Olynyk still has yet to appear for the Heat after suffering a bone bruise while playing with Team Canada this summer. He should be able to claim the starting power forward job when healthy and offers sneaky top-100 upside, but the lack of clarity surrounding his return date is hurting his draft stock. We're still on board with Olynyk as a late-round selection in standard drafts.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) will not play in Monday's preseason tilt with the Heat.

    Huerter said earlier in camp that he wasn't worried about his status for opening night, and although the expectation is that he'll be ready for the regular season it is a little troubling that he has yet to play in the preseason. Huerter returned to practice on Friday, so hopefully this is the Hawks playing it safe with their presumed starting shooting guard. Health permitting, Huerter makes for a quality pick in the final few rounds of 12-team drafts.

  • Evan Turner
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) is listed as probable for Monday's preseason matchup with the Heat.

    Turner returned to practice on Friday and will get right back to competing for backup point guard minutes. His versatility should come in handy for the Hawks but as a veteran on a rebuilding team, he figures to have minimal fantasy value.

  • Tyler Lydon
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Tyler Lydon (right hip inflammation) and Hollis Thompson (right hip bursitis) have been ruled out of Monday's preseason game against the Jazz.

    Neither Lydon nor Thompson will figure into the rotation when the regular season opens, but they will miss a chance to climb the pecking order tonight. This news has no fantasy impact unless you're playing preseason DFS.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    In a recent mailbag, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee said that the Kings are willing to sign Bogdan Bogdanovic to a max-length contract extension, but Bogdanovic may head to free agency in hopes of a bigger payday.

    Anderson threw out $12.85 million as the salary at which the Kings would happily sign the dotted line, but Bogdanovic is coming off an excellent performance in the World Cup and would offer one of the best blends of current production and upside in what's set to be a weak free agent class. Unfortunately for Bogdanovic, he could be facing a playing time crunch this year. The Kings have locked in their backcourt of the future and went out of the way to re-sign Harrison Barnes and add Trevor Ariza at the small forward spot. It will be tough for BB8 to repeat last season's 27.8 mpg so he's shaping up as a late-round selection in the 14-16-team range. There is upside for more, at least.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Although Buddy Hield wants to sign an extension with the Kings, the two sides do not appear all that close to an agreement.

    "They’re talking, but nothing is moving yet. Nothing has moved," Hield said. The 26-year-old is headed for restricted free agency if no deal is worked out, so it's possible that the Kings let the market determine Hield's next salary if the current gap is too wide to bridge. Either way, it seems unlikely that the Kings would let Hield go following his breakout season. Hield is adamant about wanting to stay in Sacramento but did say, "I want to be here and if it doesn’t happen, then things can go the other way." We wouldn't expect this contract talk to affect Hield's play, and he looks like a viable selection in the early-middle rounds of fantasy drafts.
