Brandon Roy went through his first practice Saturday since undergoing knee surgery.

Roy said he felt no pain in the knee, but he'll still likely need a few more sessions before being ready to return to game action. However, that's about as big an 'if' as there is, so there's reason to be hesitant. Monitor him from the waiver wire, but keep in mind he has limited value when healthy.

Rodney Hood was diagnosed with a left calf strain and will be re-evaluted on Saturday morning.

If this diagnosis holds up, this would be a huge relief for the Jazz. Still, it wouldn't be surprising at all if he misses time because he had to be carried off the floor by his teammates. His owners should sit tight until we get an update on Saturday, but look for Alec Burks and Donovan Mitchell to see more minutes if Hood misses time.

Dwight Howard went off against his former Hawks team on Friday with 20 points (8-of-12 FGs), 10 rebounds and one block in 33 minutes.

Dewayne Dedmon and John Collins weren't able to contain Howard in the paint, but his night wasn't all good as he hit 4-of-8 free throws and turned the ball over six times. Cody Zeller wasn't able to play with a right knee bruise and could miss more time, so Howard will get a bump in minutes until his backup returns to action. If you're punting free throws, you should be happy with Howard's start as a Hornet.

Frank Kaminsky bounced back on Friday vs. the Hawks with 21 points in 33 minutes.

Kaminsky had a quiet opener with four points on 1-of-9 shooting, but he had the hot hand tonight and shot 7-of-14 from the field with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers. Kaminsky got a lot of extra run tonight, but it had more to do with Marvin Williams' (zero points on 0-of-6 shooting) poor shooting than Cody Zeller's injury -- Johnny O'Bryant got the backup center minutes. Kaminsky is a lukewarm pickup unless he keeps getting minutes at the expense of Williams.

Kemba Walker dropped 26 points in a 109-91 win over the Hawks on Friday, shooting 6-of-13 from the field.

Walker also hit 10-of-12 from the line and has now hit 10+ free throws in two straight games -- he never hit more than nine free throws in a game last season. He added nine assists, four rebounds, one steal and four triples and helped the Hornets battle back from a 20-point deficit in the first half. He's now scored a combined 50 points through his first two games and his left knee doesn't seem to be a concern despite having three surgeries in three years.
Oct 20 - 10:16 PM

Derrick Rose sprained his ankle early in the fourth quarter of Friday's game in Milwaukee, and head coach Tyronn Lue said he's unlikely to play Saturday against Orlando.

Rose hit three of his four field-goal attempts while knocking down all six of his free throws to score a dozen points before departing. With Rose likely on the shelf, Jose Calderon could see plenty of action Saturday night against the Magic.
Oct 20 - 10:04 PM

Dennis Schroder's 25 points weren't enough in Friday's 109-91 loss to the Hornets.

He kept his foot on the gas after a 28-point opener, hitting 11-of-21 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 32 minutes. The Hawks may not be very good this season, but Schroder has no real competition for minutes and should easily have a career year. He couldn't ask for a better matchup on Sunday vs. Brooklyn.
Oct 20 - 10:00 PM

Luol Deng is inactive for Friday's game vs. the Suns.

He's not injured, but he's either being rested or is completely out of the rotation after playing 13 minutes vs. the Clippers in the opener. The Lakers probably want that contract back.
Oct 20 - 9:19 PM

Corey Brewer will start against the Suns on Friday, moving Luol Deng to the bench.

Luke Walton said a change was coming, but this isn't one that fantasy owners will be excited about. Both Brewer and Deng will be irrelevant when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returns from his suspension.
Oct 20 - 9:16 PM

Josh Hart (Achilles) is active for Friday against the Suns.

He missed some time due to bursitis in his Achilles, so he may not get much run tonight despite poor perimeter play from the Lakers on Friday.
Oct 20 - 8:53 PM

Elfrid Payton strained his left hamstring on Friday vs. the Nets and won't return for the second half.

The injuries have been out of control during the opening week and Payton is the latest victim. There's no word on the severity, but hamstring injuries can linger without plenty of rest. The Magic play the Cavs on Saturday, so Payton should be considered questionable for now. D.J. Augustin is worth a speculative pickup and will likely be the starter if Payton misses additional time, while Shelvin Mack will back up Augustin. Payton finished this one with four points, four assists and one steal in 15 minutes.
Oct 20 - 8:50 PM

Lakers coach Luke Walton said he will make a change to his starting lineup on Friday vs. the Suns.

He wouldn't say what the changes would be, so we'll have to wait until tip-off. If we had to guess, Luol Deng would be an obvious candidate to move to the second unit after playing 13 quiet minutes in the opener.
