• Paul George
    F, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George scored a team-high 27 points to go with his eight rebounds, three assists, two threes and one steal in the Thunder's 114-94 Game 2 loss to the Blazers.

    George also played a team-high 41 minutes in the defeat. His two triples led the team as they made just five threes for the second straight game. It would be hard for them to not fare better as they return to OKC for Game 3 on Friday.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaq Harrison (hamstring) was able to return to a full practice on Saturday.

    Harrison battled the injury throughout preseason but he looks to be getting healthy at the right time. Consider him a viable option for steals in deep formats, though he won't play enough to impact standard-sized leagues outside of pure streaming situations.

  • Donte Grantham
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have waived Donte Grantham.

    Grantham, who was on a two-way contract with the Thunder last season, surfaced with LA but couldn't win a spot on the opening night roster. Expect him to head to the G League.

  • Caleb Martin
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets have given a two-way contract to Caleb Martin.

    Martin is the brother of Hornets' draft pick Cody, and he's done well to crack the final roster after agreeing to a partially guaranteed deal in July. We wouldn't expect to see him log much time this season but Martin could find minutes if the Hornets start benching their veterans.

  • Chandler Hutchison
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Chandler Hutchinson (left hamstring strain) is still not ready to be given an appropriate timetable to return.

    Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said he has been encouraged by his progress over the past few days, but is not near returning. Hutchinson will be primarily backing up Otto Porter at small forward and does not need to be drafted in standard leagues.

  • Ahmed Hill
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets have waived guard Ahmed Hill, who was on a two-way contract.

    Charlotte opened up a two-way contract slot to give to Caleb Martin. Hill is likely headed for the G League, though he may land with another organization given the two-way contract shuffling that will happen in the next few days.

  • Ivan Rabb
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies have waived Ivan Rabb, Miles Plumlee and Bennie Boatwright.

    The most interesting name here is Rabb, who showed flashes of productivity whenever the Grizzlies were ravaged by injuries over his two seasons. The big man was once a top prospect despite his draft night slide two years back and it wouldn't be surprising to see another team take a chance on him. While Boatwright is headed to the G League, Plumlee's prospects are far murkier. There's no change to the fantasy landscape here.

  • Jarell Martin
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs have reportedly waived Jarell Martin.

    Cleveland is now down to a 13-man roster so expect a move that could actually impact the rotation in the coming days. Martin drew some preseason starts at center for the Cavs and should find a new home shortly as one of the better players currently available.

  • Kenny Gabriel
    F, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have waived Kenny Gabriel and Mark Ogden Jr.

    NBA teams are thinning out their rosters and Gabriel and Ogden did not make the cut. Gabriel spent his last season playing in Turkey and may look to explore playing overseas once again.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young sat out Saturday's practice as a result of some light back soreness.

    The injury isn't thought to be serious and we'll only be concerned if Young isn't back at practice by Tuesday. If he does have to miss time at any point this season, guys like Evan Turner and Cam Reddish will take on an increased ball-handling load.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Raptors and Pascal Siakam have agreed to a new, four-year maximum contract extension.

    The deal is for four years, $130 million and does not include any player or team options. With this move the Raptors lock up their franchise cornerstone for the foreseeable future. Siakam, last season's Most Improved Player, was on the books for a paltry $2.3 million this season, but will now presumably be paid a per-year average closer to the top of his position. While early summer valuations of Siakam as a top 20 player are unrealistic, Spicy P remains a solid fantasy bet in the 3rd round, with some room to grow in the scoring categories. Those likely improvements offset concerns about decreased efficiency from the field and a lack of defensive stats in his new alpha role.
