• Malcolm Miller
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Malcolm Miller and Jordan Loyd will sit out Friday's Summer League game.

    Miller will be in the mix for rotation minutes this season and has shown well in Vegas, often finding himself as one of the team's top scorers while providing some solid defense across multiple positions. Loyd is on a two-way deal and was one of the top performers in the G-League last season, and he doesn't have much left to prove at this level of competition.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (right thigh contusion) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Cam Reddish could see more action if Young does not play. Young is currently third in the league in scoring (29.2 ppg) and fourth in assists (8.6 apg).

  • Anzejs Pasecniks
    C, Washington Wizards

    Anzejs Pasecniks (left ankle sprain) will not play on Wednesday.

    Pasecniks posted 11 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes on Friday against the Raptors. However, at the moment he's not a recommended add even when healthy.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been cleared for non-contact activities.

    Wagner was injured at the end of December and his recovery has been slow. He has averaged 11.6 points per game thanks in part to shooting 39.3 percent from deep. However, his return to game action does not yet seem imminent.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion/surgery) has been cleared for "all activities" but will need to work back into game shape.

    Wizards head coach Scott Brooks said: "It’ll be great to have him back before the All-Star break, but you never know.” Hachimura has been out since mid-December, but at least this is a step in the right direction. Hachimura has averaged 13.9 points and 5.8 rebounds this season.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Jackson said this morning that he will be back tonight against the Kings and that he is on a minutes restriction.

    The Pistons are likely to slowly integrate him back to their lineup so expectations should be lowered. Bruce Brown is likely to take the biggest hit from Jackson’s return while we shouldn't see much of Tim Frazier going forward.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Brad Stevens said this morning that Jaylen Brown is out for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies due to a sore ankle.

    The Celtics are playing it safe with their young guard who was able to log 32 minutes against the Lakers on Monday. Marcus Smart is likely to be the biggest beneficiary from his absence tonight.

  • Zylan Cheatham
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans announced on Wednesday that they have transferred two-way forward Zylan Cheatham to New Orleans from the Erie BayHawks of the G League.

    Nothing to see here, Cheatham is only a security blanket at this point.

  • Al-Farouq Aminu
    PF, Orlando Magic

    The NBA has granted the Magic's request for a Disabled Player Exception for Al-Farouq Aminu, who is recovering from meniscus surgery.

    The DPE is different from the medical hardship exception, meaning the Magic can sign a replacement player with Aminu sidelined for a significant amount of time. Orlando has also applied for another DPE for Jonathan Isaac because of the big man's knee injury, but there's no news on the application for Isaac, which could mean he may not miss the rest of the season.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    The Pistons have been granted a $9.2M disabled player exception for the projected season-ending injury to Blake Griffin, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic.

    Griffin recently underwent knee surgery and he is facing an extended rehab process. The Pistons being awarded the exception means that the dynamic forward is being ruled out for the remainder of the season. Sekou Doumbouya and Markieff Morris will continue to split the power forward minutes while it will be interesting to see whether the team makes a move with the available $9.2 million.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee is expected to miss two weeks to a month with a right foot injury.

    This comes out of nowhere while the Nuggets are already without Paul Milsap. Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr. are the next men up and they deserve consideration for the foreseeable future.
