Zach Randolph (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Sunday.

X-rays were negative on his left ankle, but he did turn it badly on Friday on the first play of the game. Randolph played 37 minutes in Friday's game and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Blazers. Darrell Arthur and Ed Davis figure to pick up most of the slack with Z-Bo out.

Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun is reporting that the Raptors want Pascal Siakam to start at power forward as soon as the 2017-18 season.

Coach Dwane Casey said that Pascal Siakam "might come up and just blow everybody out of the water," but this report makes sense for a couple reasons. The PF spot is currently the Raptors' biggest weakness, and Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson are only signed through the 2016-17 season. Siakam will have trouble finding consistent minutes this season, so he's more of a stash in dynasty leagues for now. We'll obviously keep an eye on him during the preseason.

DeMarre Carroll (knee) still isn't 100 percent and his minutes will be monitored at training camp.

He had in-season knee surgery in 2015-16 and battled through a hyperextended elbow, sprained wrist, hip pointer and a twisted ankle. He admitted that he was only 70-75 percent healthy during the playoffs, but it's a concern that he's not 100 percent after several months off. The only bit of good news that Carroll had was that the swelling in his knee is no longer there. He says he's on track for the season opener, but despite his mid-round upside, it's best to let Carroll fall into the later rounds following this report. He averaged 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.8 triples in 28 total appearances last season.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said that the starting SF position is "up for grabs."

While Otto Porter is the heavy favorite to start, Brooks isn't just going to hand him the job with Kelly Oubre ready to take on a larger role. Brooks has said in the past that he's a "big believer" in Porter, so this could simply just be motivation. Porter is still a solid mid-round pick after averaging 11.6 points, 5.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 triples last season.

Josh Richardson (right MCL) had his knee brace removed and will be able to do light court work at training camp.

This is wonderful news for the second-year SG and it sounds like his recovery is on schedule. His previous timetable had him returning around the season opener, but it would be understandable if the Heat proceed with caution. Once healthy, Richardson should be the second best fantasy option in Miami's backcourt behind Goran Dragic.

John Wall (knee) will be limited when training camp begins on Tuesday.

The All-Star PG has recently started playing some 3-on-3, but coach Scott Brooks said the team is in "no rush" to bring him back. The Wizards haven't provided a timetable, but previous reports indicated that Wall is hopeful to be ready for the season opener. With that said, Brooks wouldn't even commit to Wall playing in the preseason. Coming off two knee surgeries, fantasy owners may want to let him slide in drafts a bit.

Myles Turner was diagnosed with a concussion after taking an elbow to the head during a workout this week.

Turner is currently in the NBA's concussion protocol and it's not clear when he will be able to return. There's plenty of time for Turner to recover, so this shouldn't impact his value in fantasy drafts. Turner is a breakout candidate after averaging 10.3 points with 6.4 boards and 3.3 blocks during the playoffs last season.

Heat president Pat Riley said on Monday that Chris Bosh's career with the Heat is over.

"I think Chris is still open-minded. But we are not working toward his return," Riley said. "We feel that, based on the last exam, that his Heat career is probably over." When Riley was asked if Bosh's NBA was over, he simply said that it's "up to him." The Heat sound like they are ready to move on and will have to rebuild their roster around Hassan Whiteside, Justise Winslow, Goran Dragic and Josh Richardson. While Bosh remains hopeful to play in the NBA again, fantasy owners shouldn't burn a draft pick on him until we hear some good news.

A detective from the LAPD has confirmed that there is an active criminal investigation against Derrick Rose.

The original lawsuit was civil and just for money, but this latest report means that Rose could be in serious trouble. Rose’s attorney Mark Baute had previously alleged that Bradan Anand (victim's attorney) was lying about an active criminal investigation in order to extort a settlement from Rose, but that's not the case. Rose will be speaking at the Knicks' media day on Monday, so we should hear more details soon. The trial will begin on Oct. 4, meaning Rose could miss several preseason games if he doesn't settle the suit.

Paul Pierce announced on Monday that he will play one more season.

"Just like any difficult decision, I think you’ve got to be at peace with yourself," Pierce said. "I’m at peace with retiring, but I’ve got one more ride left. One more season. One more opportunity." Pierce added that he likes the Clippers' chances of competing for a championship, but it's safe to say that his role will be pretty limited in his 19th and final season. Last year, Pierce played 68 games with averages of 6.1 points, 2.7 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.1 triples, so he's not worth targeting in fantasy leagues.

Nerlens Noel said on Sunday that the 76ers' "situation...with three starting centers" is "silly."

Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo admitted this summer that he is "absolutely not" comfortable with the logjam caused by Noel, Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid all vying for minutes. "I know I was shopped [in trades this offseason]," Noel said. "I would have figured that management would be able to get something done this summer." The Sixers' obvious need to unload a big man leaves them in a negative position, trade-wise, but it seems inevitable that one of their centers will finish the season in another jersey.

Anthony Davis (knee surgery) thinks that he is on track to play in the season opener.

"Right now, I think I'm heading in the right direction toward getting there," Davis said on Saturday. "Today everything felt great. I feel like I'm more explosive than what I was and more powerful." He did "virtually" everything in the Pelicans first practice, but his workload will continue to be monitored during the preseason. His durability concerns aren't a secret, but his sheer upside means he won't fall out of the first round of fantasy drafts.
