Latest Headlines

Blake Griffin (sore left ankle) received treatment on Thursday and is expected to play vs. the Raptors on Friday.

Griffin has been dealing with the ankle injury, but he's playing through the pain and isn't expected to take any time off. He's been very solid since Chris Paul (knee) went down and has played well in January with averages of 19.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 0.8 blocks on 52.1 percent shooting.

JaVale McGee (fractured leg) made his preseason debut on Tuesday, coming off the bench for one point, two rebounds and one block in 11 minutes.

McGee was playing on a 15-minute limit and it should take him a while to get up to speed, considering he missed all but five games last season. With Timofey Mozgov starting at center and improving every day, it's hard to be optimistic about McGee's season outlook. At best, he's a late-round flier for owners desperate for blocks.

Anthony Morrow started at small forward again on Tuesday and hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, five rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

Morrow isn't guaranteed a starting gig just yet, but he could be heading in that direction if Scott Brooks gives up on the Andre Roberson experiment, or if Morrow has beaten out Perry Jones to start at SF. Morrow has had a fun preseason, scoring in double figures in all six games and hitting 13 3-pointers. If you need threes late in your draft, he's worth a grab. And if he's won the starting SF job for as long as Kevin Durant is out, he could be a real value pick late in your draft.

Trey Burke hit 9-of-16 shots and three more 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal on Tuesday.

He's now hit 16-of-30 3-pointers in the preseason, and has made Dante Exum an afterthought. Once the big-named point guards are off the board, Burke looks like he's primed and ready to go this season.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Enes Kanter hit 12-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 27 points, seven rebounds and a block in 29 minutes on Tuesday.

Kanter is starting to play well and the talk of him shooting threes this season may not be a joke. Yes, Rudy Gobert is on his tail, but Kanter looks like a lock to be the starting power forward on opening night and beyond for the Jazz. Gobert played 21 minutes and had five points, six rebounds and three blocks off the bench.
Oct 21 - 10:55 PM

Chris Copeland started on Tuesday and hit 7-of-12 shots for 17 points, five rebounds and three more 3-pointers.

He's really turning it on and has scored 17, 22 and 16 points in his last three games, draining 13 3-pointers and grabbing 14 rebounds. We're still not betting that he's replaced C.J. Miles at small forward just yet, but he's at least made his presence known. The Pacers need a scorer like Copeland, and it would not be all that surprising to see him eventually unseat Miles. If you're in a deep league and need threes late, give him a close look.
Oct 21 - 10:30 PM

Andrew Bogut is not with the Warriors on Tuesday due to an illness.

He's day-to-day and Ognjen Kuzmic will start in his place at center.
Oct 21 - 10:16 PM

George Hill suffered a knee contusion on Tuesday and will not return to the game.

If you're going to have a knee injury, a contusion is the way to go. He's day-to-day and finishes with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer. He's looking for a bounce-back season as the Pacers' starting point guard, and he's looked good in the preseason. Consider him day-to-day.
Oct 21 - 9:49 PM

JaVale McGee looks good in warmups and is expected to make his preseason debut for the Nuggets on Tuesday.

If he can stay healthy and play effectively, he could actually hurt the progression of Timofey Mozgov. However, McGee is just trying to get back into game shape and get his shot going, so we're not too worried about a timeshare just yet. The return of McGee could also work to motivate Mozzy, which may not be a bad thing.
Oct 21 - 9:03 PM

Despite an earlier report that Jeremy Lin would start at point guard for the Lakers on Tuesday, Mark Medina is reporting that Ronnie Price will get the call.

Lin is still expected to play and will come off the bench after missing three straight game with a sprained ankle. Either way, Lin should be a nice, cheap source of dimes and point guard minutes this season.
Oct 21 - 8:25 PM

Chris Kaman is averaging 10.5 points and 8.0 rebounds in his four games off the bench for Portland this preseason.

If you're in a deep league that requires you starting two centers, Kaman may be worth a look at the end of your draft. And if Robin Lopez or LaMarcus Aldridge go down at some point, he'll become a must-own player.
Oct 21 - 8:04 PM

Ty Lawson (hamstring) could play in Friday's preseason finale against the Warriors.

This is good news, as it means he's close to being ready. He is hoping to play in order to keep his conditioning intact, but even if he doesn't play, all signs are him being ready for opening night.
