Manu Ginobili (back) will not travel to New Orleans for the season opener and will be reevaluated on Thursday.

Ginobili has dealt with back spasms throughout his career, and while the Spurs were downplaying Manu's absence, it sounds like he could be dealing with something more serious than previously reported. We're concerned since he's being ruled out for the opener, and there is a very real possibility that he'll be out longer than that. Danny Green, Stephen Jackson and Kawhi Leonard should all see a boost in minutes with Ginobili sidelined.

Derrick Rose is reportedly being sued by a woman who alleges that he and his friends drugged and sexually assaulted her in August 2013.

The plaintiff claims that she was drugged at Rose's house but left before any sexual encounter, but that once she was home Rose and two friends broke into her apartment and sexually assaulted her. Rose is innocent until proven guilty of these incredibly serious charges.

Brandon Jennings (left Achilles) said he would be "fine" coming off the bench behind Reggie Jackson this season.

Jennings is taking the high road as he seeks to return from a devastating injury that may force him to miss the beginning of the season, and it's a given that Detroit will start Jackson after locking him up with a five-year, $80 million pact this summer. Jennings, who hasn't played in seven months, said that he's been studying tape of Tim Hardaway, Kenny Anderson and James Harden during his rehab. "I don't know if I'll be ready for training camp," he said. "I'm definitely going to take my time through training camp and also through the preseason. I probably won't be back to myself until at least around December. That's for sure." If you weren't leery of drafting Jennings until the final rounds this season, that final quote ought to do the trick.

The Clippers are reportedly "confident" that Glen Davis will re-sign this summer, though the Mavericks have also contacted the free-agent PF/C.

Davis might play in Europe or China if no suitable contract materializes in the NBA, and it's almost certain that the Mavs and Clips are offering him the veteran's minimum. It would be bitterly ironic if Dallas manages to poach Davis from the Clippers, having failed to land DeAndre Jordan, but Big Baby is irrelevant in fantasy leagues no matter where he's playing.

Moe Harkless is currently dealing with a sprained ankle, and he may not be able to play for Puerto Rico at the FIBA Americas tournament this summer.

Harkless is scheduled to fly to Portland to be evaluated by the team's medical staff, so we'll be monitoring this story closely. For what it's worth, Puerto Rico deemed the sprain mild, but we'll be awaiting official confirmation from Portland's side. Harkless will be competing for minutes with Mike Miller and Al-Farouq Aminu this season, but if he's able to earn himself a role in the rotation, he could be worth owning in deep leagues as a steals specialist.

Otto Porter stated during a recent interview that he'd "definitely" be comfortable being used as a stretch-four for the Wizards this upcoming season.

Porter had a bit of a coming out party during last year's playoff run with Washington, compiling averages of 10.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers per game on 44.3 percent shooting from the field. He'll be looking at a much larger role with the Wizards next season with Paul Pierce now in Los Angeles, so he could potentially take a big leap during his third NBA season. Porter is certainly on the radar, and he could make for a sneaky late-round selection on draft day.

Heat assistant coach Dan Craig hinted during a recent interview that Hassan Whiteside will likely see his minutes in the 20-25 range a lot during the 2015-16 season.

"You might see his minutes jump up when we're playing Andre Drummond or DeAndre Jordan," said Craig. "But if we're playing a team that likes to play small ball, you'll probably see his minutes around 20 or 25." With a lot of the league gearing towards a small ball movement, there will likely be a lot of games next season where Whiteside doesn't eclipse the 30-minute mark. However, in just 23.8 minutes per game last season, Whiteside was still able to compile averages of 11.8 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game, so he'll still make for a decent mid-round selection on draft day.

Joel Embiid did not re-break the navicular bone in his right foot, according to GM Sam Hinkie.

The initial reports out of Philadelphia were that Embiid had experienced "less healing than anticipated," but a later report indicated that Embiid had indeed re-broken his navicular bone. According to Hinkie, who describes himself as a "nightmare in the doctor's office" due to the amount of questions he asks, the doctors told him Embiid would have been in "a shocking amount of pain" if he did re-break the bone in his foot, which was not the case. Either way, Embiid is expected to miss the entire 2015-16 season, so there's no reason to draft him in any league.

The Hornets and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are finalizing a four-year extension worth $52 million.

That's a lot of money for a guy who still hasn't figured out his jumper. That said, MKG is a terrific defender and he has improved as an offensive weapon. He should get plenty of minutes at small forward and a few at the four, too. He's a late-round flier at best.

Dario Saric is hoping to play for the 76ers during the 2016-17 season.

We won't use direct quotes since it's a translation, but Saric made it clear that he is hopeful to make the jump to the NBA after the 2015-16 season concludes. If the Sixers can get Joel Embiid (foot) healthy ahead of next season, Philadelphia will finally have Embiid, Saric, Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor in the lineup together.

Kelly Olynyk's knee injury does not appear to be a serious concern.

TSN's Josh Lewenberg wrote that it looked like "Olynyk was fine" after getting his left knee wrapped and returning to the bench, but we're not completely out of the woods yet. The big man will likely receive some additional tests, and we should learn more about his status in the early portion of the week ahead. Jared Sullinger, David Lee and Amir Johnson would pick up additional time if Olynyk is forced to the sidelines.

Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points in his debut with Canada's senior men's team, propelling his squad to an 85-80 win vs. Argentina.

The reigning Rookie of the Year helped Canada get off to a strong start as they seek to qualify for the Olympics. He's surrounded by a cast that includes NBA players Kelly Olynyk, Anthony Bennett, Nik Stauskas, Cory Joseph, Dwight Powell, Andrew Nicholson and Robert Sacre. Wiggins is still only 20 years old and the international experience should only help him as he prepares for his sophomore season in the NBA.
