Larry Sanders took a hard fall in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game in Denver and went to the locker room with an apparent back injury, and didn't return.

He tried to block an attacking Kenneth Faried and landed hard on his back, needing assistance to walk to the locker room. The Bucks take on the Jazz on Wednesday and we're going to call Sanders a game-time decision for now, although he could easily be in street clothes. Samuel Dalembert absolutely went off on Tuesday and is worth a look in standard leagues. Sanders finished with 12 points, seven boards and five blocks in 23 minutes against the Nuggets.

The Jazz will reportedly pursue Luol Deng during free agency.

Deng has stated on multiple occasions that his preference would be to remain with Miami, but Utah may be able to steel him away from the franchise during the early goings of free agency while the Heat focus their attention on Kevin Durant and Hassan Whiteside. With Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood, George Hill and Gordon Hayward already all fighting for touches, Deng would only complicate the equation.

The 76ers reportedly plan to be "serious suitors" for Harrison Barnes during free agency.

Barnes will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Warriors will be able to match any offer he signs on the open market, but Philly could potentially pull him away form the Oakland franchise with a poison pill kind of contract. Barnes' preference would be to remain in Golden State, but he'd have much more opportunity to produce in Philly.

The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly pushing hard for a meeting with unrestricted agent Kevin Durant.

The Hawks, Lakers, and Knicks are all pushing for a sit down with Durant, but none of the three teams have been able to make it on Durant's short list just yet. Atlanta is hoping the presence of Grant Hill in the team's ownership group will help secure a meeting with the superstar, but the Thunder are still a favorite to re-sign Durant so the Hawks chances at landing KD are looking extremely slim at the moment.

The Hawks are considering making a run at free agent Dwight Howard, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Stein reports the Hawks are also interested in Kevin Durant (who isn't?), but the team has not been granted a sit down with KD so a run at Howard seems much more likely. Howard could serve as a contingent plan for his hometown team if Al Horford bolts in free agency and would continue to provide solid fantasy value for owners who are willing to stomach his abysmal free throw percentage.

Pau Gasol will reportedly be a free agency priority for the San Antonio Spurs.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports Gasol is at the top of the Spurs free agency wish list after he decided not to pick up his player option with the Bulls. While the Spurs will likely have competition for Gasol, they offer the 35-year-old an opportunity to win so it wouldn't be a huge shock to see him sign with San Antonio. We'll keep an eye on Gasol when free agency begins on July 1, but joining the Spurs wouldn't necessarily be a great thing for his fantasy value.

Frank Kaminsky (chest) will undergo a minor procedure to repair a small pocket of air in his chest wall.

Kaminsky's recovery time is expected to be six weeks, which means he'll miss playing in Summer League. Frank the Tank averaged 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.1 minutes per game during his rookie season, but is morem of a late-round pick in fantasy drafts as he doesn't have a ton of upside.

The Grizzlies have declined Lance Stephenson's $9.4 million team option.

He'll be a free agent and should get interest from plenty of teams. Although, Stephenson was out of the rotation at times with the Clippers before the trade deadline. Thanks to numerous injuries to the Grizzlies, he put up averages of 14.2 points, 4.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.4 treys in his final 26 regular season games. Stephenson led the league in triple-doubles back in 2013-14, but he will likely just be a role player next year.

The Hornets are looking to re-sign Marvin Williams, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

It makes plenty of sense given Williams enjoyed a breakout season that featured consistent production under Steve Clifford, and the veteran is a nice presence in the locker room for a team that is undoubtedly still growing. However, it's unclear how Williams' role could change with a healthy Michael Kidd-Gilchrist if Nicolas Batum returns as Frank Kaminsky is also in the mix for minutes at the four.

The Lakers could get a free agent meeting with DeMar DeRozan, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Although it was reported that DeRozan is focused on working out a new deal in Toronto and was not seeking meetings with other teams, Amick writes that the Lakers remain lurking in the background. Other teams known to have interest in DeRozan include the Clippers, Warriors, Heat, Knicks and Magic. To be clear, Amick makes it obvious that the Raptors should be considered in a class alone as the frontrunners for DeRozan's services.

Bismack Biyombo wants to re-sign with the Raptors, a source told USA Today's Sam Amick.

According to Amick, Biyombo is willing to be patient while Toronto figures things out with DeMar DeRozan, the team's top priority in free agency. However, it's one thing to take that stance now, and it's entirely another when interested clubs are throwing as much as $15-$17M annually in your face. If DeRozan is willing to take a slight discount, it could greatly help in allowing for Biyombo's Toronto return. We'll soon learn how it will all play out.

Although Charlotte would like to re-sign Jeremy Lin, the Hornets are "fearful" that they'll lose him in free agency, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

The Hornets don't have Lin's Bird Rights, so that makes re-signing him more complicated than it otherwise could be. Lin is expected to meet with three other clubs as soon as free agency opens, and his priority this summer is to find a club that believes in him so he can find a real NBA home. "I've played six years in the NBA; I've played on five different teams. I've played for two D-League teams -- so seven cities in six years. I'm tired of boxes, I'm tired of moving companies, and I want to find a home," he said. "I want to see how good I can become," Lin said. "I'm 27, and an athlete's prime, or at least in the NBA, your prime is usually 27-30. That's when you kind of peak physically [and] mentally and that's where most players perform their best. So I'm going into my prime and I want to see how great I can be as a player, and that's my purpose in free agency -- so I'll just exhaust every opportunity to see which one will be the best for me."
