Fantasy News

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery on his left thumb.

    This is rough news for the Wizards, who already have John Wall on the shelf. Thomas was a candidate to start at point guard, but instead he'll have to recover from yet another injury. Thomas averaged 8.1 points and 1.9 assists in limited action for the Nuggets last campaign.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Free Agent

    Several Nets players are pushing for the team to sign Carmelo Anthony, according to Ian Begley. However, it's unknown whether Sean Marks and the front office will go forward.

    Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have already been reported as being among Anthony's supporters. Still, Melo could end up with a team other than the Nets or nowhere at all in the NBA. He averaged 13,4 points and 5.4 rebounds before the Rockets parted ways with him last November.

  • Justin Anderson
    SG, Washington Wizards

    The Wizards signed guard Justin Anderson.

    The Wizards could use depth, but Anderson's deal is non-guaranteed and he is unlikely to make a major fantasy impact. He averaged 3.7 points last season in limited action for the Hawks.

  • Isaiah Taylor
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have signed guard Isaiah Taylor, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    It's a partially guaranteed deal for Taylor, who missed last season due to injury. The Celtics, Nuggets, and Suns had also shown interest. Taylor averaged 6.6 points and 1.3 assists in 2017-18 with the Hawks. He's unlikely to put up big numbers with the Raptors.

  • Darius Miller
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have applied for a disabled player exception worth $3.625 million, after losing forward Darius Miller for the season with an Achilles injury.

    Miller became a reliable perimeter threat for the Pelicans last year averaging career-highs in points (8.2) and assists (2.5) in 69 games. He then signed a two-year deal worth $14 million early in the summer. Without Miller, the Pelicans will likely give more minutes to Kenrich Williams and Nicolo Melli.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    According to Andrew Lopez, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram have been full participants in voluntary team workouts.

    It's great news for the two former number two picks as they enter their age-22 seasons with a fresh start. Neither Ball nor Ingram has played in 60 games in either of the past two seasons due to injuries. Ingram has never cracked the top 110/170 (8-cat/9-cat), but he could easily beat that in New Orleans with a quick tempo and new role. Ball had a top 60/85 finish in his rookie season, so there's definitely upside here. Lonzo does have a very wide range of possible outcomes, so draft him only if you're feeling risky.

  • Yante Maten
    PF, Miami Heat

    The Celtics are signing F Yante Maten to an Exhibit 10 contract on Tuesday.

    Maten had a strong season with the Skyforce in the G-League last year averaging 23.5 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. He was also productive in Summer League action with the Heat this summer.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray are all candidates for "load management" next season, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic

    This is pure speculation by Kosmider, but this does hold some weight after the Nuggets' playoff run last season and the league-wide popularity of resting players. Millsap would seem to be at the most significant risk to get rested due to his age and quality of depth behind him. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee would be the biggest beneficiaries should Jokic or Millsap miss time.

  • Thabo Sefolosha
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Thabo Sefolosha is among the attendees at Rockets minicamp in Las Vegas with a host of other notable free agents this week.

    Sefolosha will be joined by the likes of Nick Young, Luc Mbah a Moute, Raymond Felton, Terrence Jones and Corey Brewer. The odds of someone making the Rockets' roster increased with Iman Shumpert declining an offer sheet from the team.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Free Agent

    Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Iman Shumpert has decided to decline the contract offer from the Rockets and will not attend team minicamp in Las Vegas this week.

    It'll be back to the drawing board for Shumpert. It's unsure exactly where he'll end up now, or if he and the Rockets will come to a new agreement in the future. Shump can get steals and threes, but otherwise isn't much of a fantasy asset, unless he finds himself in an ideal situation.
