Updating a previous item, Bradley Beal (wrist) is seeing a hand specialist in New York and his availability on Wednesday is uncertain.

Beal previously admitted that he might have to take some time off, and his seeing a hand specialist is a sign that, at the very least, his wrist warrants a closer examination. We don't expect the rookie to play tonight even if it's for precautionary reasons, meaning that guys like Martell Webster, Trevor Ariza and Jordan Crawford will see more playing time.

The Wolves are working on a five-year extension for Andrew Wiggins according to head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The extension would be worth nearly $148 million, but it wouldn't kick in until 2018-19. Wiggins has already established himself as an elite scorer with a career-high 23.2 points per game last season, but Thibodeau said he wants to see him become a "complete player" and believes Jimmy Butler will help with his development. Wiggins was only a 10th-round value in standard leagues last season due to a lack of peripheral stats, but he's still only 22 and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Damian Lillard said he's reached out to Carmelo Anthony and said it's a "real possibility" that Anthony could join the Blazers.

The Blazers reportedly have made it clear they won't be involved in a Melo trade unless they're the ones getting the All-Star forward. Lillard isn't usually the recruiting type, but C.J. McCollum has touched on this subject and even posted a photoshopped picture of Anthony in a Blazers uniform. Anthony does have a no-trade clause and several reports say he wants to go to Houston, so the Rockets should be considered as the frontrunners.

Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources.

Mario Chalmers will sign a one-year deal with Memphis according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The deal is only partially guaranteed for one year, so he's still not a lock to make the 15-man roster. Chalmers hasn't played in the NBA since tearing his Achilles back in March of 2016, but he's healthy again and it's nice to see him get another shot. He will battle Wade Baldwin for the backup PG role, so he won't have much fantasy value in Memphis.

Ty Lawson has agreed to a deal with the Shanxi Dragons of China.

Lawson had an okay year with the Kings this past season, compiling averages of 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game, but most teams around the league have already filled the point guard position, so the market never really materialized for Lawson. It's not currently clear if his CBA contract will include an NBA-out clause, but he'll definitely be making more money overseas this season than he could in the NBA.

Willie Reed has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Clippers.

Reed will have a similar role in Los Angeles to the one he had with Miami last season, operating as DeAndre Jordan's primary backup. His minutes will likely be in the teens on most nights, so Reed won't be on the floor enough to make any meaningful contributions in fantasy hoops.

The Spurs are reportedly working to finalize a deal with unrestricted free agent Pau Gasol.

Gasol opted out of his contract back in June, but he did that to free up cap space for the Spurs, and the narrative has always been that he would eventually re-up with San Antonio on a long-term deal. Gasol was a top-75 option with the Spurs last season despite only playing 25.4 minutes a night, contributing averages of 12.4 points, 7.8 boards, 2.4 dimes, 0.9 triples and 1.1 blocks per contest. However, we'll likely see a slight regression in those numbers during his age-37 season.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN‏ is reporting that Manu Ginobili and the Spurs are finalizing details on a new contract.

This will be Ginobili's 16th season in San Antonio. He turns 40 at the end of July. Last season Manu averaged a career-low 7.5 points in a career-low 18.7 minutes. His playing time and production will likely dip again in 2017-18. Despite being one of the better players of his generation and a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer, Ginobili is no longer desirable in standard fantasy leagues.

Coach Alvin Gentry said the plan going into next season is to start Rajon Rondo at point guard and Jrue Holiday at shooting guard.

The Pelicans started both Tim Frazier and Holiday in the same backcourt frequently over the final month of the 2016-17 season, so Holiday has some experience playing off the ball. However, it will still be an adjustment for both Rondo and Holiday playing alongside each other. Nonetheless, this is good news for Rondo's fantasy value, as it means his playing time should be fairly steady and predictable. Rondo will rack up assists passing to Holiday, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.

Kyle Kuzma dropped 30 points to lead the Lakers past the Blazers in a 110-98 win in the Vegas Summer League Final.

Kuzma was named to the All-NBA Summer League second team with averages of 20.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 3.0 treys, 1.2 steals and 1.5 blocks in his previous six games, but he was asked to do even more with Lonzo Ball (calf) on the shelf tonight. He nailed six 3-pointers on the night and finished 11-of-16 from the field with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block, picking up the Finals MVP Award in the process. He's in a nice spot with the Lakers rebuilding, so expect the rookie to see minutes right out of the gate behind Julius Randle.
Jul 17 - 11:54 PM

Lonzo Ball (mild right calf strain), P.J. Dozier (ankle) and Josh Hart (ankle) will not suit up for the Las Vegas Summer League championship game against the Trail Blazers.

Ball has nothing left to prove at Summer League, and there's just zero incentive for him to push through even a minor injury during this offseason series of exhibition games. Ball will finish Summer League with averages of 16.3 points, 9.3 dimes, 7.7 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.0 block per game on 38.3 percent shooting. He looks locked in as LA's starting point guard next season, so he'll be someone to consider towards the late-middle rounds on draft day.
