Thaddeus Young suffered a left hamstring strain in the second quarter of Monday's game against the Magic and he will not return.

It didn't look good and he had a fairly bad limp considering that it appears to be a muscle strain. The Sixers don't have much depth and they're going with Lavoy Allen to play more minutes at power forward. Allen hasn't been very effective in fantasy leagues, so his move should make Spencer Hawes the most noteworthy player to pick up value with Thad out. Young was ruled out quickly, so we'd consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers. He finished with six points and five boards in 15 minutes on Monday.

According to Wizards reporter J. Michael, a contract extension for Otto Porter is unlikely.

This means that Porter would become a restricted free agent next summer if the two sides don't reach an agreement. Porter will now have the chance to bet on himself in the hopes of landing a massive deal in 2017 -- the salary cap is expected to rise again. Coach Scott Brooks is a "big believer" in Porter's potential, so he could have a big season if he can hold off Kelly Oubre for the starting small forward role. He averaged 11.6 points, 5.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 triples last season, shooting 47.3 percent from the field.

According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Dion Waiters has the "inside track" as the initial starting replacement for Dwyane Wade.

It's not a lock by any means, as Waiters will be competing with Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington for minutes. It was reported on Monday that Waiters' deal with the Heat is for one year and $2.9 million, but he does have a player option for the 2017-18 season. He averaged just 9.8 points, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.1 3-pointers in OKC last season while shooting 39.9 percent from the field, so he's still not an attractive fantasy asset.

The Thunder are still telling other teams that Russell Westbrook isn't available according to Royce Young of ESPN.

The report adds that the Thunder have received plenty of calls, but they aren't interested in a rebuild just yet. With Dion Waiters moving on to the Heat, the Thunder are now under the salary cap which will allow them to renegotiate Westbrook's contract up to a max-level deal, starting next season. Westbrook reportedly doesn't want to be traded, but the Thunder may not have a choice if they can't reach an agreement on a contract extension.

The Cavaliers and coach Tyronn Lue agreed on a five-year, $35 million extension.

Lue was brought on during the season for a first-place Cavs team and took home a title. He's not the greatest coach with lineup adjustments just yet and isn't the greatest play-caller either. Of course, it helps to have LeBron James. The Cavs figure to play Tristan Thompson at the five more often next season.

Dion Waiters has agreed to a one-year deal with the Heat.

It's only worth $2.9 million, so Waiters wasn't anywhere near the $18 million per season he wanted. Waiters should get plenty of minutes with the Heat and could actually start over Josh Richardson. Waiters hasn't shot the ball well in his career, making just 41.1 percent with a downward trend. He'd only be worthy of a late-round pick.

C.J. McCollum and the Trail Blazers have reached agreement on a four-year, $106M contract extension, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Portland has made some questionable moves this offseason, but this certainly is not one of them. McCollum, who will be just 25 in September, averaged career-high marks across the board in what can only be described as a breakout 2015-16 season. Now, there will be no questioning what his future looks like with the Blazers, and the team will push forward in its rebuild with McCollum and Damian Lillard at the helm. McCollum, who averaged 20.8 points, 2.5 3PM and 1.2 steals on 44.8 percent shooting last season, could be in line to improve upon those numbers in his second full go-around as the unquestioned starting shooting guard. Per Wojnarowski, the deal will not include any options or trade kickers.

Kris Dunn (concussion) has received medical clearance to resume basketball activities.

Dunn has been sidelined for two weeks while dealing with the concussion, but now the rookie can get back on the floor. We'd be a lot more excited about Dunn's fantasy potential if (when?) Ricky Rubio is traded.

Victor Oladipo implied that he's prepared to take his game to the next level with the Thunder.

"I feel like you’re going to see a lot more from me; I don’t think I’ve even scratched the surface of how good I really can be," Oladipo said. "I’m getting better every day and I’m looking forward to [showing] it. I can still grow way, way more." Without Kevin Durant in the picture, the opportunity for Oladipo to show out alongside Russell Westbrook is certainly there. We wouldn't be afraid to "reach" for him in upcoming fantasy drafts.

In an interview with NBCDFW.com, Deron Williams (sports hernia) said that he will be ready in time for training camp.

"Feeling really good. It's healing pretty well, I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said. "I'll be ready to go definitely by the time training camp rolls around." He added that he's already jumping and running, and said that his next checkup is August 1st. Williams re-signed with the Mavs on a one-year, $10 million deal and should be team's starting point guard once again. However, he's more of a late-round pick after averaging 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game last season.

Meyers Leonard (shoulder surgery) said that he's hoping to be ready around the start of the 2016-17 season.

"It's a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court," Leonard said. "We'll see. You just never know." The Blazers won't be in a hurry to rush him back after re-signing him to a four-year deal worth $41 million, and most players tend to be a little too optimistic about timetables anyways. If the Blazers re-sign Moe Harkless, Leonard's outlook for the 2016-17 campaign won't be great with Al-Farouq Aminu expected to play more power forward.

Gerald Green has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Celtics.

Once Green signs, they will have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster. Green is coming off a disappointing season in Miami where he averaged 8.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting. He will likely have a limited role at best in Boston.
