• Jaylen Brown will not play in Tuesday’s Summer League game due to a hyperextended knee.

    Well that’s not great, Bob.  He looked nice and springy on Monday but this is the first we’ve heard of this and at this time of the year players take time off for precautionary reasons all the time.  We’ll let you know if there is any reason to be worried.

    Update: The Celtics are calling this a mild injury. “I don’t think it’s bad. It’s summer league. Anything like that, he doesn’t need to (push it),” said (assistant coach Micah) Shrewsberry, who is coaching the team during the Utah leg of the summer league schedule. “We have a lot of games left this summer. It’s kind of precautionary. Let him rest today, then we have another day off, and then he’ll be back.”

  • Adam Mokoka
    G, Chicago Bulls

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left hamstring) will play on Monday.

    Redick was already considered probable, so this is not surprising. He is shooting a stratospheric 46.5 percent from long range and has averaged 15.8 points per contest. That includes 3.3 made threes per game.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Derrick Favors has also been ruled out, making Jaxson Hayes a valuable short-term play. Okafor has now missed a week of action, so this seems to be a nagging issue for him.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Favors is coming off two strong games but is unable to play. Jaxson Hayes will fill in for the big man. He's a solid play in daily leagues considering that Jahlil Okafor is also out.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) is expected to play during Monday's game.

    Holiday has missed seven games in a row but it looks like he is on track to face the Grizzlies. He could eat into some of Lonzo Ball's playing time. In addition to the solid contributions in points and assists, Holiday has averaged 1.7 steals per contest this season.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) is being downgraded to doubtful for Monday's matchup with the Thunder.

    This would indicate that Rivers will miss this one. Ben McLemore is likely to see a few extra minutes if RIvers gets ruled out.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (jammed right big toe) is considered questionable to return for Monday's game against the Wizards after exiting in the second quarter.

    Morris isn't out of the woods just yet, but this is a positive development as it isn't related to the left foot sprain that kept him out of the lineup for seven games before returning on Saturday. Keep tabs on the situation as more information rolls in. Christian Wood would be the biggest beneficiary if Morris were to miss time.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler is being ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup with the Kings due to right hip soreness.

    With Butler out, there will be a ton of usage and minutes to go around in the Heat rotation. One of Goran Dragic or Derrick Jones Jr. should enter the starting lineup, while the minutes will be dispersed amongst a handful of players.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Maurice Harkless (sore lower back) practiced on Monday and is expected to return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    Harkless will make for a potential streaming option on a one-game slate if he is ultimately cleared to play. Paul George (hamstring) is also traveling with the team, and the team is hopeful that he can return during the upcoming road trip.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Ky Bowman is being listed as out for Monday's game against the Blazers.

    Bowman's two-way contract is almost up, and with the Warriors getting a few players back, they aren't going to use up his last remaining days. He may ultimately get signed for the rest of the season as Damion Lee did, but he isn't to be under fantasy consideration until that happens.
