A person with knowledge of the situation tells USA Today's Sam Amick that Larry Sanders' injury is "very minor."

Sanders is questionable to play Wednesday after X-rays on his hip were negative. According to Amick, there were initial concerns Sanders fractured his back after taking a scary fall Tuesday night. We're dubious about Sanders' ability to play Wednesday, but owners should be happy he didn't suffer a more serious injury.

Trail Blazers' GM Neil Olshey said that Jusuf Nurkic (leg), Ed Davis (shoulder) and Allen Crabbe (foot) are all expected to be good to go for training camp.

Nurkic's 2016-17 campaign was cut short after he sustained a non-displaced fibular fracture in late-March, but he was pretty fantastic in the 20 games he played for Portland this past season, pumping out averages of 15.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals, 1.9 blocks and 3.1 turnovers per game on 50.8 percent shooting from the field, which was good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. Nurkic will be in a contract year next season, so he could be in for a monster Year-3.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Minnesota "remains intent" on trading Ricky Rubio.

Stein adds that the one of the reasons why Rubio could be on the move is the Wolves are looking for more shooting. This report contradicts Wolves GM Scott Layden's comments this week, as Layden said the team was "planning" on keeping Rubio and gushed about his strong finish to the 2016-17 season. With Kris Dunn in Chicago, whoever the Wolves bring back in a deal for Rubio would immediately step into a large role in Minnesota. For now, it doesn't sound like a deal is in the works yet. Rubio has two years and $29 million left on his deal, so the Wolves won't give him away for cheap.

The Cavaliers, Pacers and Nuggets have reportedly discussed a three-team deal that would send Paul George to Cleveland, with Kevin Love going to Denver.

To be clear, nothing is imminent and there's no mention of what Indiana would get in this scenario -- Denver would likely send them a combination of young players and draft picks. It would be a very interesting move from the Nuggets, who acquired Trey Lyles on draft day but could lose Danilo Gallinari in free agency. Chris Haynes reports that Denver would be willing to give up Kenneth Faried in a potential deal, with Wilson Chandler and Emmanuel Mudiay also "available." Stay tuned.

The Mavericks have officially declined Dirk Nowitzki's team option for next season and will begin negotiating a new deal.

There's no reason for Dallas fans to panic, as this was a mutual decision to give the Mavericks more financial flexibility this summer. Nowitzki was originally going to be on the books for $25 million in 2017-18, but now one of the options being discussed is a new two-year contract. The Mavericks made it clear that their priority this summer was to re-sign Nerlens Noel and develop their young talent, but their ability to make a splash in free agency hinges on how much of a discount Nowitzki is willing to take.

Seth Curry said he still wants to play both guard positions now that Dallas has Dennis Smith Jr.

He said DSJ can also score off the ball and added he'll do whatever coach Rick Carlisle wants him to do. Late in last season, the Mavs opted to give Curry a longer look at point guard and he did have some success in that role before his shoulder injury Although, his best stretch last year was as a shooting guard in February, averaging 16.7 points, 2.9 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 treys on a tidy 66.1 true shooting percentage in those 11 games. Curry could be a sixth man for the Mavs, but he could still have value with minutes in the mid-20s.

The Mavericks informed Yogi Ferrell that they will pick up his option for next season.

It was an easy decision for Dallas, as Ferrell will be on the books for just $1.3 million. The Mavericks selected Dennis Smith Jr. at No. 9 in the draft, so Ferrell will surely come off the bench next season and is off the standard league radar for now. With J.J. Barea and Seth Curry under contract, Ferrell will struggle to find minutes right out of the gate.

Coach Earl Watson believes Josh Jackson can play all five positions for the Suns.

The quotes were flying in Phoenix on Friday. The 6'8" forward also threw his hat in the ring for Player Hater of the Year. "Oh I'm gonna hate everybody but the Phoenix Suns, don't worry," Jackson said. Also, the Celtics may also not like Jackson because general manager Ryan McDonough hinted that he and Jackson's people formulated a plan to skip the workout for the Celtics "playing by the rules." In other words, it sounds like Jackson preferred to go to Phoenix because of his playing time on a young team rather than go to a team where he knew he'd be down the depth chart. Expect Jackson to get 24-30 minutes out of the gate and make a fantasy impact.

Chris Paul has informed the Clippers he is declining his option to become an unrestricted free agent, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

This has been expected for a long time as CP3 looks to get another long-term deal. Of course, there are the rumors of Paul looking to join the Spurs while there has also been some talk of him looking at the Rockets or Nuggets. Paul is past his prime at age 32, but his style of play should translate much longer than other point guards who rely so much on athleticism.

Blake Griffin has opted out of the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

It's a fairly expected move for the former All-Star. Griffin can earn up to a five-year, $175 million deal with the Clippers, or he could get up to a four-year, $130 million offer with another team. There is some uncertainty with the Clippers now that all of their stars have rumors of being on other teams. Considering the Celtics didn't do anything yet, they're someone to watch.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said the starting center position will be an "open competition."

It'll likely be Jarrett Allen vs. Timofey Mozgov for the starting spot. Obviously the Nets aren't exactly going for it as they rebuild through the draft, so that should give Allen an advantage. At Texas, Allen's Longhorns were very slow with their 252nd-ranked pace in the nation, so that'll be an adjustment for him. Still, the Nets were demolished inside last year and Atkinson should be able how to use Allen's 7'5" wingspan on both ends. He's a sleeper to watch in deep fantasy leagues.

The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo.

The Kings added some really nice perimeter depth on Thursday with De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Frank Mason. Plus, they could also be adding Bogdan Bogdanovic for next year, so they may have several new pieces to their backcourt compared to the start of the 2016-17 season. As for Afflalo, he is still 31 and he may be looking to join a contender next year.
