Kevin Durant was not concerned with the injury he sustained to his ribs, but his status for Monday's game is uncertain.

Durant bruised his ribs on Saturday and returned to finish the game. After an off day Sunday, Durant is likely to be reevaluated on Monday morning and could be headed for the dreaded game-time call against Dallas. Scott Brooks said Durant was "fine" on Saturday, adding, "We're not going to put him out there if he's not ready to play the way we need him to play."

Cameron Payne suffered a right ankle sprain during Tuesday's scrimmage.

The severity of the injury is not currently known, but it's worth pointing out that this is the same foot that Payne had surgery on this summer to correct the Jones fracture. We should have an update on Payne soon enough, but with a full month to go until the regular season tips, he has plenty of time to make a full recovery.

John Wall (knees) said he felt "great" following his first day of practice at training camp.

"I feel great," Wall said. "I’m a little fatigued but other than that I feel really good." While Wall didn't go through the live portions of Tuesday's practice, head coach Scott Brooks estimated that he got through about 70 percent of the work, and Kelly Oubre said that he was dunking during some drills. It sounds like Wall is making solid progress in his recovery from the two knee surgeries he underwent this summer, but until he's officially cleared to play, he'll remain a risky early-round pick.

Noah Vonleh (thigh) still doesn't have a clear timetable to return.

He was given an original timetable of about 3-4 weeks on Aug. 31, so this is worrying. "I guess you could say I'm a little behind," Vonleh said. "But I'll catch up quick." He had a bone fragment removed from his right thigh, so the Blazers won't be in a hurry to rush him back. For now, he's been limited to light running and shooting. He's the fourth PF on the depth chart, so fantasy owners can ignore him.

Josh McRoberts was limited at the opening day of camp due to a foot injury.

The guy just can't seem to stay healthy. The Heat have a huge hole at power forward due to the uncertainty around Chris Bosh, but McRoberts isn't off to a great start. For now, Derrick Williams, James Johnson, Udonis Haslem and Luke Babbitt will compete for minutes at the four, while Justise Winslow should spend some time there as well.

Patrick Beverley is expected to start next to James Harden this season according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

There was some concern that Beverley might move to the bench with James Harden running the offense, but Mike D'Antoni wants his defense and 3-point shooting in the first unit. The Rockets will basically use a three-guard rotation that includes Eric Gordon, but Beverley is just a late-round target for owners in need of steals and treys. He missed some workouts earlier in the week with a cut on his foot, but he has since been cleared to return to full practice.

Stephen Curry made it clear that he intends to re-sign with the Warriors next summer.

"I want to be back here. I like playing here, and that's it," Curry said. He's hoping that his contract situation won't be an issue or a distraction, and he said that he will have the same answer throughout the year. Curry will earn over $12 million this season in the final year of his deal, but he will get a max contract if he wants it during the summer of 2017.

According to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post, multiple teams have called the Nuggets about Will Barton.

It's not clear if the Nuggets have made him available, but the report adds that teams have been offering them first-round picks. He has two years left on his deal for a total of around $7 million, so his contract is an absolute bargain. Barton will have trouble matching his minutes from last season with Jamal Murray in the mix and Wilson Chandler (hip) returning from injury, so we won't recommend drafting him until his situation improves. Gary Harris is the SG for fantasy owners to target in Denver.

Joel Embiid (foot) said he felt "great" during the first day of training camp.

Embiid was battling a flu virus on Monday night and wasn't expected to practice on Tuesday, but he showed up and gave it a go anyways. "I'm feeling great," Embiid said. "I'm a little disappointed that I missed the beginning, that I didn't get a chance to play. But I went up and back a couple of times and it felt great." Embiid put in about 25 minutes of work and participated in a "controlled" scrimmage, so this was a huge step forward for the intriguing big man. After two years of sitting on the sidelines, things are finally starting to look up for Embiid and his upside makes him worth the gamble late in drafts.

Danny Green is dealing with a left quad contusion.

He suffered the injury during a workout last week and sat out of the first day of training camp (Tuesday). The injury doesn't sound serious, but Green is expected to miss a few days of action. For what it's worth, he was able to put up some 3-pointers at practice, so the Spurs are likely just being cautious. Green had Lasik eye surgery over the offseason and is hoping to bounce back after a rough 2015-16 season. He's a nice target at his discounted price in the later rounds.

Kings coach Dave Joerger said Darren Collison's situation as far as league discipline is still up in the air.

Collison pleaded guilty in early September to one count of misdemeanor domestic violence, so it's basically a lock that the NBA will issue a suspension. With less than a month to go until opening night, fantasy owners should tread carefully with Collison in fantasy drafts until we get more clarity. Joerger said he's counting on Ty Lawson for a big year, so he could open the season as the starting PG with Garrett Temple backing him up.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said that his shooting is getting "a lot better."

"The more work you build in, the more muscle memory kicks in," RHJ Said. He's been spending "30 to 40 minutes a day" on his shot after hitting 26-of-68 (38.2 percent) of his jumpers last season. He's still a bit raw on the offensive end, but his defensive stats are intriguing -- he had per-36 minute averages of 9.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 0.9 blocks. He's expected to start and log heavy minutes on the wings, making him an interesting sleeper in fantasy drafts. It also helps that he is one of the few building blocks that the Nets have.
