LaMarcus Aldridge's wrist X-rays came back negative and he's been diagnosed with a sprain.

Owners can safely exhale. Although the problem is on Aldridge's shooting hand, he is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Heat. We previously blurbed this as just "water under the bridge," but we had second thoughts and will simply advise owners to not panic but to take shooting wrist injuries seriously in general. Aldridge has dealt with chest, ankle, back and this wrist injury throughout the year, but has missed just two games and is averaging 20.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and a career-high 1.3 blocks.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Heat "are willing to part with Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow as centerpieces" in a trade for Kyrie Irving.

It's a strong offer from Miami, but Wojnarowski notes that, due to the strained relationship between Miami and Cleveland, "there's little chance for a deal unless the Heat offered an overwhelming package." The key to the trade would be how Cleveland views Winslow, who is a promising prospect but has had a rocky start to his NBA career. Woj also reports that six other teams have submitted formal offers for Irving: San Antonio Spurs, L.A. Clippers, Phoenix Suns, Minnesota Timberwolves and the New York Knicks.

Terrance Ferguson agreed to his four-year rookie scale deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

It's unusual for a first-round pick to take this long on signing a deal, but he finally received clearance from FIBA to sign with OKC. The rookie's outlook doesn't look as great today as it does when he was drafted because the Thunder added Paul George. Ferguson will likely be spending most of his time with the OKC Blue in the G League.

JaVale McGee has agreed to re-sign with the Warriors, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

Nick Young and JaVale McGee are together again. McGee had a simple role with the Dubs as a rim-runner, rim protector, and catching some lobs. He had some very important minutes in the postseason and will look to get some backup minutes again. After winning the title last year, the Warriors sure do know how to keep their team together.

According to Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily, the word around Brooklyn is that Allen Crabbe will start at small forward.

If true, this means the Nets will likely roll with a first unit of Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, Crabbe, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov, with Caris LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick and DeMarre Carroll seeing significant minutes off the bench. Crabbe was 3rd in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season, but he's looking forward to an "expanded role" and hopes to prove that he's more than just a shooter. Crabbe's fantasy arrow is pointing up and he's now on the radar in the later rounds.

The Wolves have interest in Ian Clark, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.

This report adds that Clark has turned down minimum offers. A report from Tuesday said that the Lakers aren't in for Clark anymore, which would've made a ton of sense with his former coach Luke Walton. Clark is arguably the best point guard on the market and he would be a fantastic fit as a backup with the Wolves for his shooting.

When asked if the Cavs intended to trade Kyrie Irving, new general manager Koby Altman called the situation "fluid" and that the team has been in touch with Irving's representation.

Owner Dan Gilbert said it wasn't appropriate to discuss the details of the team's meeting with Irving, but he does expect the All-Star guard to be at camp. Gilbert also addressed the narrative of the Cavs having a tough offseason. "This thing is not broken," Gilbert said. When Altman was asked if Kyrie and LeBron James could co-exist, he talked a lot about the past, and said some reports of animosity between them have been "overblown" recently. Basically, the Cavs aren't going to be able to ignore this elephant in the room and the Kyrie trade talk won't be going away any time soon.

LeBron James will be working out with Derrick Rose, Eric Bledsoe and others in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

This will probably help fuel the Bledsoe for Kyrie Irving trade rumors. Although, Bledsoe and LeBron have been close for years, they have worked out together before, and they both have Rich Paul as their agent. In other words, this is not a surprise and there's a very good chance this has nothing to do with the trade rumor. Bledsoe has said he'd like to win now and the Suns would probably like to move him to focus on their player development, so expect plenty of rumors to follow.

Danny Ainge confirmed on Wednesday that Isaiah Thomas will not require hip surgery this offseason.

"Isaiah is making good progress," Ainge said. "He’s out on the court; he’s shooting. He’s full-speed ahead on the stationary bike and working in the swimming pool. He’s progressing nicely." Thomas was forced out of the playoffs after severely aggravating his rip hip injury during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but he's been evaluated by multiple hip specialist since and it sounds like he'll be fine after some rest and relaxation. Thomas probably won't be a first-round talent next season with Gordon Hayward now in Boston, but he should still be able to flirt with top-25 value.

The Bucks are reportedly actively shopping Greg Monroe and John Henson.

Both Monroe and Henson's names have floated around in trade rumors for years now, but maybe they'll finally be able to find a taker for Monroe now that he's on the final year of his contract. Henson still has three years left on his deal but at the relatively moderate price of $31.7 million. Both these guys would be better served outside of Milwaukee, and if the Bucks are able to move both of them, that would open up a ton of minutes for Thon Maker.

Arron Afflalo has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Magic.

Afflalo actually had some of his best statistical seasons wearing an Orlando jersey, but don't expect him to replicate his success from his 2013-14 campaign during the 2017-18 season. Afflalo will likely serve in a sixth man-like role, backing up Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross, but his minutes will likely be in the 20s on most nights which won't be enough floor time for him to make a difference in most leagues. The arrival of Afflalo and Jonathon Simmons isn't great news for Mario Hezonja.

Brandon Knight reportedly tore the ACL in his left knee and he's in danger of missing the entire 2017-18 season.

Knight suffered the ACL tear while playing in a pro-am game last week in Miami and he's expected to have surgery on Friday, at which point we should get a firm timetable on his recovery. Given the current direction of the Suns' franchise, they may consider outright waiving Knight if they're unable to find a trade partner willing to take on his contract worth roughly $44 million over the next three seasons. Obviously, Knight won't be worth targeting in any format on draft day.
