Russell Westbrook shot 12-of-20 from the field for 32 points against the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He came out like gangbusters to start the game, scoring 16 points in the first 10 minutes of action. Westbrook leads all point guards in rebounds per game and he shot 47.6 percent from field in his last nine games. He's getting hot again and is an elite fantasy asset.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nuggets will likely waive Jameer Nelson.

They need the roster spot to sign Richard Jefferson, and this suggests that the Nuggets are confident in Jamal Murray as their starting PG and Emmanuel Mudiay as his backup. Once waived, the 35-year-old Nelson shouldn't have much trouble finding work and will probably be looking to join a contender.

Dante Exum has elected to undergo surgery to stabilize the AC joint of his left shoulder.

The Jazz likely won't provide a timetable until after the surgery on Tuesday, but it's hard to imagine Exum making a return to the court this season. After a phenomenal preseason, Donovan Mitchell has made a strong case to see minutes at PG and SG right away and is worth picking up in most leagues.

Richard Jefferson is "closing in" on a one-year, $2.3M deal with the Denver Nuggets according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The move will be official once the Nuggets waive a player (likely Jameer Nelson). Jefferson cleared waivers less than an hour before this report, so the Nuggets aren't wasting any time. It's hard to imagine Jefferson playing a big role with the Nuggets expected to use a nine-man rotation, so he's not on the fantasy radar.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

This is the second day in a row that Bogdanovic has sat out practice, so it looks like he might not be available for Sacramento's regular-season opener against Houston on Wednesday. If he is forced to begin the 2017-18 season on the sidelines, that would open up minutes for guys like Justin Jackson and Buddy Hield.

George Hill (groin) practiced on Monday and is hoping he'll be cleared for Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets.

Hill getting through a full practice is certainly encouraging regarding his status for Wednesday night, and we should have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is cleared to play, that would likely translate to De'Aaron Fox coming off the bench in his NBA debut. Stay tuned.

Luke Walton said he's considering throwing Kyle Kuzma into the starting lineup for the first two games of the season while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope serves his suspension.

Josh Hart (Achilles), Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Luol Deng and Kuzma are all being considered by Walton as potential starters sans KCP, but if Kuzma gets the starting nod, he'd be someone to consider as a potential punt play in daily leagues.

LaMarcus Aldridge has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $72.3 million extension with the Spurs.

Aldridge saw a slight dip in his statistics last season, and only managed to finish the fantasy season with top-55 value in 9-cat leagues, but he looks poised for a strong start to his 2017-18 campaign with Kawhi Leonard (quad) set to begin the year on the sidelines. Savvy fantasy owners may want to consider selling high on Aldridge early on, as he'll likely see a regression in his stats once Leonard makes his way back to the court.

Josh Hart was forced out of Monday's practice with a left Achilles issue, and he is scheduled for an MRI later today.

Hart has had a tough time staying healthy so far, dealing with an ankle issue at Summer League and a hamstring issue that kept him off the floor during training camp and the preseason, so this is yet another unfortunate setback for the first-year two-guard. For what it's worth, Hart was spotted walking around the practice facility, so it doesn't sound like this is a severe Achilles injury, but we'll be waiting for his MRI results before speculating on a timetable.

Julius Randle (ribs) was limited to the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

The Lakers are listing him as day-to-day, and he still has another three full days to get ready for opening night, so him sitting out Monday's scrimmage seems precautionary more than anything else. We'll have a better idea on Randle's status following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to sit out the first game of the season, that would open up minutes for Kyle Kuzma and Larry Nance.
Oct 16 - 4:08 PM

Andre Bogut (groin) did not participate during the scrimmage portion of Monday's practice.

Bogut was able to get through all the other aspects of Monday's practice, and with the Lakers season opener not taking place until Thursday, he still has a good amount of time to get himself ready. However, he won't be playing enough minutes behind Brook Lopez this season to make a difference in 12-team leagues.
Oct 16 - 4:00 PM

Lonzo Ball (ankle) was a full participant at Monday's practice and said he'll definitely be suiting up for the Lakers' season opener against the Clippers on Thursday.

Luke Walton hasn't yet officially cleared Ball for Thursday night, but with him going through a full-contact, 5-on-5 scrimmage, in addition to saying he'll be ready, we'd be quite shocked if he sat out the Lakers' opening night matchup. Ball will be getting all the run he can handle in Los Angeles this season, but efficiency and turnover issues could deflate his value a bit in category-based leagues.
