• Paul George
    F, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George (right shoulder soreness) scored 25 points on 25 attempts in 38 minutes after a three-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

    It's tempting to say he was rusty, but an 8-for-25 game happens often enough even when he's healthy. George did hit four treys on 14 attempts, so he came out guns blazing. That plus the heavy minutes load should put any lingering injury worries to rest.

  • Alex Caruso
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Alex Caruso (pelvis bone contusion) is being listed as day-to -day.

    The MRI didn’t reveal anything too serious and Caruso shouldn’t be out long. He’ll should have a spot in the Lakers’ rotation so he’ll be worth a late round flier in deeper leagues.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish will play around 20 minutes in the Hawks season opener vs. the Pistons.

    If Kevin Huerter (knee) isn’t healthy enough to play then Reddish could get the start but we’ll have to wait and see. He’s worth a late round flier in most drafts.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) practiced in full on Sunday.

    This is great news and if he’s healthy enough he’ll likely start in the Hawks season opener. He’s a 3-point specialist and should have the opportunity to shoot many of them on this Hawks team.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce is undecided on who the starting shooting guard will be for the season opener vs. the Pistons.

    It’ll likely be Kevin Huerter (knee) if he’s deemed healthy enough to play. However, DeAndre Bembry and Cam Reddish have a shot at it too.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De’Andre Hunter will start in the Hawks’ season opener vs. the Pistons.

    This is great news for Hunter and his owners as it shows how much confidence they have in the rookie. He’ll likely be up and down throughout the season but he’ll have plenty of opportunity on this Hawks team.

  • Andre Roberson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Andre Robertson (left knee) went through contact practice on Sunday.

    Coach Billy Donovan still didn’t have a solid answer regarding Robertson’s availability for the Thunder’s season opener vs. the Jazz but this is good news. He’ll be a very big piece of OKC’s defensive scheme but won’t really provide much for fantasy owners outside of steals and a few blocks.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Coach Alvin Gentry wants to stick with J.J. Redick to begin the season .

    This is good news for Redick as he’ll continue to start even with Zion Williamson out. The Pels will likely move Brandon Ingram down to power forward and keep the rest of the lineup the same.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons want to award Christian Wood with a regular season roster spot for his strong preseason play.

    Wood and Joe Johnson had been competing throughout the entire preseason and the Pistons might end up keeping them both. The Pistons have got to move some things around to make him fit but he’ll be a valuable piece for them to hang onto going into the season.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moe Wagner (sore back) missed Sunday's practice but is expected to return soon.

    Wagner left Friday's preseason finale after taking a hard fall, but the Wizards think it's a short-term injury. He's a decent late-round target if you're in a 14- or 16-team league and should play a legitimate role backing up Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura.
