Kevin Love (hand) underwent surgery Tuesday morning and his timetable has been set at 8-10 weeks.

If Love ends up missing exactly eight weeks, he'll be back on March 12 and will play in the final 22 games of the season. That may be wishful thinking. The damage is once again on Love's shooting hand and as we saw earlier this season, he rushed back far too quickly the first time he broke it. Don't expect the Wolves or Love to make that mistake twice. The more likely scenario has Love sitting out the full 10 weeks, leaving him with just 14 games left in the season.

Stanley Johnson had an efficient game against the Heat on Monday, making 4-of-5 from the field for 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's looked terrific at times in Orlando, but this is summer league. Johnson has excelled on the perimeter side of things, which was a big concern for him coming into the offseason. He's also creating some offense with steals and his fantasy game could translate nicely. That said, the addition of Marcus Morris really hurts the appeal of Johnson in re-drafts.

Mitch McGary showed off his offensive skill set against the Magic during a 73-65 win, making 9-of-12 from the field for 19 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two fouls in 25 minutes.

He has lost close to 30 pounds and it's pretty clear he's worked on his mid-range game, too. McGary basically just lived around the rim during his rookie season, so his offseason has gone quite well to broaden his ability to play outside of the paint on both ends. Still, he's just going to be a backup for OKC.

Aaron Gordon looked fantastic again on Monday against the Thunder, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 8-of-11 from the field.

Again, he struggled from the line, making just 4-of-8 from there. However, his mid-range game looks like it's from another world while he has been destroying his man off the dribble. Gordon has clearly put in the work and he's not ready to concede his minutes to the number of forwards on the Magic roster right now. He's becoming a late-round flier at this rate.

J.J. Barea will stay with the Mavs on a two-year, $5.6 million deal.

The Heat were really after him, but the acquisition of DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews may have helped Barea's case. The Mavs are expected to land Jeremy Lin, which means these two will likely share the minutes at point guard. Neither have been able to show consistency, so they may cancel each other out.

The Cavs are looking to make a trade to acquire Jamal Crawford.

It would be for Brendan Haywood's contract and the Cavs are also trying to get a deal going for Joe Johnson. Crawford would be a great fit with the Cavs to help give them some shooting as well as a ball-handler in their second unit. This news also solidifies the talk of J.R. Smith not coming back. Expect the Cavs to get one of the two deals done today or tomorrow.

Mario Hezonja put on a show again on Monday against the Thunder, scoring 14 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He had a one-handed tomahawk down the lane for a jam in traffic followed by a stare-down, had an a one-handed alley-oop slam, and he had the fist pump working after a 3-pointer. It's still unknown if coach Scott Skiles will change his ways from counting on rookies, but Hezonja is just too much fun right now.

David West has agreed to terms with the Spurs for the veteran minimum.

He is going to leave about $11 million on the table to join the Spurs. Madness. Anyway, the Spurs have essentially swapped out Tiago Splitter and Aron Baynes for West and LaMarcus Aldridge for their frontcourt rotation. West is almost certainly going to see his 28.7 minutes per game from last season take a hit, so his fantasy value will suffer. He'll be asked to step up on the nights Tim Duncan gets a DNP-OLD. As for the reality side of things, the Spurs look really good.
Jul 6 - 4:27 PM

Marc Gasol has agreed to a five-year, $100 million-plus deal to return to the Grizzlies.

It was really just a matter of time for Gasol. Plenty of teams had interest in Gasol for obvious reasons, but those teams gave up hope when free agency started. He'll resume his role as a focal point of the offense, following his 2014-15 season with averages of 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 dimes and 1.6 blocks. He'll be a target in the second round next year.
Jul 6 - 4:21 PM

Myles Turner blocked six shots against the Magic on Monday, adding 13 points, nine rebounds and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

The bad news here is he did commit eight fouls -- it takes 10 to foul out of a summer league game. That aside, Turner has been magnificent, making 6-of-11 from the field in the loss today. He has a fairly quick release and his mid-range game looks better than expected. Yes, it's summer league, but there's a lot to like here on a team with very little depth up front. He's on the fantasy radar.
Jul 6 - 2:59 PM

Manu Ginobili announced he'll be coming back for the 2015-16 season.

He announced it on Twitter and used the hashtag #TDwouldvemissedmetoomuch. Ginobili only played 18.7 minutes per game in the playoffs, so that may be where he'll be for minutes in the upcoming season. The Spurs have lost a little bit of depth with Cory Joseph and Marco Belinelli headed elsewhere, so coach Gregg Popovich may actually have slightly tighter backcourt rotations. Of course, that may change.

A trade sending Joe Johnson to the Cavaliers has become "stagnant," sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

The Nets were looking for another team to potentially take Anderson Varejao's contract, but they've been unsuccessful in that pursuit. For now, an Iso-Joe trade is in play but a long ways away from becoming a reality.
