• PJ Tucker
    F, Houston Rockets

    PJ Tucker did not do much on Wednesday as he had three points and two rebounds on 1-of-7 from the field in 35 minutes of action in a loss to the Warriors.

    All seven of his field goal attempts were from deep and all he added to the box score was a steal and a block. He is a top-80 value on the season in 9-cat leagues despite averaging just 7.6 points and can be classified as a steals and 3-point specialist.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley tweaked his calf in Sunday's preseason win, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 20 minutes before exiting.

    No word on the severity of Beverley's injury just yet but calf issues can linger, so we would expect him to get a couple days off in advance of the regular season. Any missed time would create more playing time for Landry Shamet and Terance Mann, which is something to keep in mind in deeper drafts.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet picked up a wrist injury in Sunday's win over Melbourne United.

    Shamet scored seven points in 18 minutes before exiting and downplayed the injury after the game, so hopefully it's not serious. He remains a quality target in the last couple rounds of 12-team drafts.

  • Keita Bates-Diop
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop will miss Sunday's exhibition game because of back spasms.

    Nothing to see here, as the Wolves are just playing it safe with KBD against Maccabi Haifa. He should remain a late-round plodder for use in leagues with 20 teams or more.

  • Amir Coffey
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Amir Coffey injured his calf/ankle in Sunday's exhibition win and left the locker room in a walking boot.

    Coffey is on a two-way contract with the Clippers so this injury won't have an effect on the fantasy landscape. Expect an update on his condition in the coming days. Coffey had two points in 15 minutes before getting hurt.

  • Vincent Poirier
    C, Boston Celtics

    Vincent Poirier will have an expanded role in Tuesday's preseason game, per Brad Stevens.

    The Celtics have been mixing and matching their centers all preseason and Poirier has generally been the odd man out, so Boston will try and get a longer look at the intriguing rookie before the preseason wraps up. His role figures to be minimal in the regular season but DFS players can look to him on Tuesday. Poirier logged six minutes on Sunday.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker returned from a one-game absence (sore knee) in Sunday's 118-72 thrashing of the Cavs, scoring 12 points with three triples in 16 minutes.

    Walker is healthy and if nothing else it's good to know that the minor knee troubles are behind him. Consider him a viable pick at the end of the second round in all formats.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Brandon Knight (right hamstring soreness) played through a questionable tag on Sunday to produce five points in 12 minutes.

    Knight doesn't figure to play much of a role for Cleveland but at least he's healthy.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams only played 11 minutes on Sunday but he still picked up eight points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

    Brad Stevens said that center could be a rotating position for the Celtics, so performances like these will help Williams' case even if he's unlikely to start. Deep-league managers should be eyeing Williams as a blocks specialist while he'll hold streaming appeal in shallow formats based on matchups.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis put up 10 points, three rebounds, two assists and a block in 11 minutes of Sunday's preseason win.

    The Celtics steamrolled Cleveland so there was no need for extended minutes, but Brad Stevens went out of his way to praise Theis' defense after the game. It certainly looks as though he'll start at center, which makes him worth a shot in all 16-team leagues at the very least. There's top-150 upside depending on playing time and Theis can rack up some helpful cash counters when given the opportunity.

  • Cedi Osman
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Cedi Osman played 24 minutes and shot just 1-for-10 in Sunday's preseason blowout, scoring two points with five rebounds and a steal.

    It must've felt like last season for Cedi, who went into battle with most of Cleveland's regulars on the sidelines. There's nothing to glean from this game but Osman has top-120 upside for as long as he isn't forced into a primary scoring role that just doesn't suit him.
