Meyers Leonard will move to the bench on Thursday against the Magic.
He did not play well in his starts at center, averaging 6.0 points, 3.5 boards and 1.0 treys on 23.5 minutes per game. Leonard's playing time figures to drop into the teens tonight or maybe even lower than that.
Jusuf Nurkic will start vs. the Magic on Thursday.
The Suns acquired the draft rights to Cenk Akyol in the Mike Scott deal.
He was drafted in 2005 and hasn't made his NBA debut yet.
Lou Williams will be in the Rockets' rotation on Thursday, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.
Williams was acquired on Tuesday and initially wasn't expected to play tonight, so this is a pleasant surprise for his owners -- D'Antoni said he'd rather "experiment" with his rotations in a road game. It doesn't seem safe to deploy him in DFS just yet, but season-long owners might as well roll him out there on a six-game night.
Cody Zeller (quad) is not expected to play against the Pistons on Thursday.
His quad injury just won't go away. Frank Kaminsky should start and get heavy minutes against Andre Drummond.
Deron Williams plans to join the Cavs, according to the Associated Press.
He still has to clear waivers, but there are a ton of reports saying the Cavs will be signing the former All-Star. Williams played on Team USA with LeBron James, so those two are familiar playing next to each other despite not playing on the same NBA team. He will back up Kyrie Irving and could also see some minutes in two-PG lineups. Obviously his fantasy value takes a major hit.
Hollis Thompson has officially signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans.
New Orleans needs to add some depth after trading away Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans, so there's a chance Thompson will stick around all season. Even if he joins the rotation immediately, there's no clear path to fantasy relevance here.
Corey Brewer went through practice on Thursday.
Coach Luke Walton doesn't expect Brewer to play many minutes in his debut on Friday. There are some minutes available with Lou Williams in Houston, but there's no need to add Brewer almost anywhere for fantasy.
