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.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said that Evan Turner will share backup point guard duties with CJ McCollum.

It's the right decision for Portland because Shabazz Napier has really struggled at the NBA level. Turner is considered the favorite to start at SF, but will face a lot of competition from Allen Crabbe and Moe Harkless. Turner averaged 10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 turnovers on 45.6 percent shooting with the Celtics last season, but his ceiling in standard leagues is limited because he doesn't take many 3-pointers.

Kemba Walker (knee surgery) was limited to the non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

"Kemba and Cody [Zeller] aren’t at a stage yet where they can do anything with contact. Dummy offense and shooting drills," coach Steve Clifford said following Tuesday’s first practice of training camp. Walker was initially expected to resume basketball activities in early July, so the fact that he's still being limited nearly five months removed from the knee procedure is slightly concerning. Until he's fully cleared to play, there will be some added risk in investing an early-round selection on Walker.

Dwane Casey said that he's expecting DeMarre Carroll (knee) to be "ready to go without limitations" for Toronto's regular-season opener.

Carroll was a full participant during Tuesday morning's practice, and said that he's happy because he hasn't experienced any setbacks this time around. Carroll never really looked right during his first year in Toronto, compiling averages of 11.0 points, 4.7 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.8 treys while hitting just 38.9 percent of his shot attempts through 26 games, but things are beginning to trend in a positive direction lately. Carroll does have bounce-back potential, so he's someone to consider towards the later rounds.

Chandler Parsons (knee surgery) only went through the non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

Parsons' status for opening night remains murky at best, as it's unclear exactly when he'll be fully cleared to take contact. It is concerning that he's still being limited despite being six months removed from the arthroscopic procedure, but this could also be Memphis exercising some extreme caution with their big offseason acquisition. There's top-25 upside here, but the very real injury concerns will likely cause Parsons to slide deep into the middle rounds.
Sep 27 - 5:03 PM

Marc Gasol (foot) was able to go through all portions of the Grizzlies two-hour practice on Tuesday.

Gasol has been fully cleared for all activities, so he's on track to be good to go for opening night. The reports coming in on Gasol's recovery have been nothing but positive this offseason, although mid-foot fractures for seven-footers is nothing to shrug at as they do have the potential to develop into a reoccurring issue. Gasol does offer second-round upside, but the very real injury concerns will make him a risky mid-round target.
Sep 27 - 4:51 PM

Alec Burks (knee surgery, ankle surgery) has still not been cleared for contact.

Burks has been going through everything other than the contact portions of practice, but the fact that he's still not been fully cleared to play despite being three months removed from the arthroscopic procedure is concerning. Burks has had some serious issues with his surgically repaired left ankle, and he only managed to make it through 58 games over the past two years, so he's not going to be worth drafting in standard leagues. For what it's worth, Quin Snyder said he's hopeful Burks will be cleared for opening night.
Sep 27 - 4:08 PM

John Wall (knees) sat out the live portions of Tuesday's practice.

Wall did participate in some defensive drills, full-court drills and contact layups with the team, and Kelly Oubre said that he "looked great," although he still remains without an official timetable to return. Wall underwent procedures on both of his knees this summer, and has said that while he's hopeful for the regular-season opener, he's not going to rush his rehab. Until Wall is fully cleared, he's going to be a risky guy to invest an early-round selection on.
Sep 27 - 3:13 PM

Meyers Leonard (shoulder) said he is ahead of schedule on his shoulder rehab and expects to be cleared for 5-on-5 on Oct. 8.

He said his shoulder feels "great" and his surgeon was impressed with his range of motion. Leonard said he's still going to have to get in better shape before he's cleared and will have to adjust to the contact coming to his shoulder. He had a massive opportunity last year and it didn't work out, so he's really just a late-round lottery ticket in most leagues.
