March 16, 2019, 7:13 pmTristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers
Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) will not play on Saturday night.
Thompson was upgraded to questionable this morning and participated in morning shootaround, so he does look to be nearing a return. We're skeptical that he regains his standard-league value between the likely minutes restrictions and Cleveland's spot in the standings, but Thompson will take a fair chunk out of Ante Zizic's workload whenever he does get back on the floor.

Covington missed the majority of this past season with a knee injury that just could never heal. That said, when Covington was on the court he showed massive fantasy potential with averages of 2.1 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.4 threes. Those numbers alone would make him a fantasy monster, and a name to keep tabs on should he put the knee issues behind me.

June 18, 2019, 3:01 pmGoga Bitadze - Team - College
Checking in at 6’11” and 250 lbs. the 20-year old big man from Georgia is a massive individual who has been invited to the NBA Draft Green Room. The Green Room is usually reserved for lottery and mid-first round selections, so it will be interesting to find out where he lands. The Spurs have shown a willingness to draft and develop overseas prospects more than any other franchise over the years and seem like a logical landing spot, but they’d have to see the four other teams all pass on Bitadze to get that chance. We’d expect Bitadze to go to the Hornets at 12 or the Celtics at 14.

After signing LaMelo Ball on Monday, the Illawarra Hawks of the Australian NBL announced the signing of Aaron Brooks on Tuesday.
The former Oregon standout was a 10-year NBA vet who last appeared with the Wolves in the 2017-18 NBA season. Brooks is 34 years old and once put up 19.6 ppg with the Rockets in the 2009-10 season. While he doesn't offer NBA teams much at this stage in his career, he can probably still get buckets in Australia.

Ex-Michigan star guard Jordan Poole wrapped up his pre-draft workouts with a final workout with the Warriors, who own the 28th pick, on Tuesday.
The Warriors have been conducting as many workouts as they could in the days since the NBA Finals ended. Warriors GM Bob Myers has shown to go with the best player available approach in recent years, and it is likely that he goes that route again. The Warriors have made quite a few savvy picks in the later rounds, and with the Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson injuries, this year’s pick has the chance at a more sizable role than the last few had.
