• Shabazz Napier
    G, Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and six threes in Wednesday's finale against the Heat.

    Napier's first season with the Nets looks similar to his previous one with the Blazers. He provided top-235 value per-game, but his real value comes from his ability to put up big numbers like he did tonight when high-usage guards are out of the lineup. Unless you're in a very deep league, Napier is best forgotten fantasy-wise until a starting guard goes down.

Fantasy News

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk (right knee bruise) is probable for Thursday's preseason finale against the Magic.

    This would be great news for fantasy owners who drafted Olynyk towards the end of drafts as it seems more likely that he will be healthy for the start of the regular season. Olynyk might have a starting role in the frontcourt next to Bam Adebayo.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard (knee) and Derrick Rose (undisclosed) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale vs. the Hornets while Markieff Morris (illness) will be available.

    Preseason is a time of caution. None of these injuries are believed to be serious so expect Kennard and Rose to play in the season opener. Morris will likely play limited minutes in tonight's preseason finale.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (left hamstring soreness) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Griffin will be ready to roll once the games count. However, he does have a history of being "injury prone" so this is something to monitor when drafting, although it is probably not serious. Andre Drummond has the opportunity to breakout in DFS lineups tonight.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Jackson (back), Luke Kennard (knee) and Markieff Morris (illness) are all questionable for Wednesday's preseason matchup vs. the Hornets.

    The Pistons are likely exercising caution while the games don't matter. They will be ready once the regular season rolls around. Monitor their status ahead of tip-off for DFS lineups.

  • Amir Hinton
    PG, Free Agent

    The Knicks have waived point guard Amir Hinton on Wednesday.

    Hinton was unable to play in either of the Knicks' first two preseason games before being waived. Hinton may end up playing in the G-League and is not on the fantasy radar.

  • Tyler Cook
    PF, Free Agent

    The Nuggets have waived Tyler Cook who signed a two-way contract earlier this offseason.

    With Cook waived, the Nuggets now have one two-way contract available. They are likely to give this contract to a training camp invitee who has impressed. One name that has come up is P.J. Dozier. This transaction doesn't impact the fantasy landscape.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Pistons.

    Williams had a doubtful tag previously so it was never expected that he would suit up. Williams should be fine to play once the regular season rolls around but is likely going to see his minutes and production decline as the Hornets focus on developing their young talent. Look for Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington to get a lot of run in this preseason finale.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier (left knee) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale vs. the Pistons.

    Rozier is dealing with some tendinitis that will force him to miss the last game of the preseason. It is likely that the Hornets are being extra cautious as the regular season is around the corner. Expect Rozier to start at point guard once the regular season begins. Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk are two guys to look at for DFS lineups on Wednesday with Graham having the higher upside.

  • Maxi Kleber
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Maxi Kleber is probable to start in Thursday's preseason finale vs. the Clippers.

    Kleber is likely to be joined by Luka Dončić, Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee and Delon Wright. With Powell hampered by a hamstring strain, Kleber is a strong candidate to look at in DFS lineups for Thursday's slate. Kleber could provide fantasy value at some point this season. He is someone to look at at the very end of drafts. Kleber should be on watch-lists if he is a free agent in your league.

  • C.J. Wilcox
    SG, Free Agent

    The Pacers have waived C.J. Wilcox, Amida Brimah and Walter Lemon Jr. on Wednesday.

    None of these players were on the fantasy radar. The Pacers roster is now set with 15 full-time players and two two-way players.
