Tony Parker (calf) finished the Spurs' overtime loss on Sunday with 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting, four rebounds, three assists and one steal.

The Spurs as a whole looked tired, particularly in overtime when they shot 1-of-10 from the field, but they'll only have one day of rest before hosting Game 5 on Tuesday. Parker's shot wasn't falling today, and Golden State's guards ran him ragged, but the good news is that his calf injury didn't prevent him from playing 41 minutes.

Coach Byron Scott said Kobe Bryant plans on playing in all eight preseason games this month.

Kobe is looking to get the rust off, get his timing and get his legs ready for the regular season. There is some talk of his minutes coming down, but Bryant should still be around 32 per game. If he can stay healthy, he'll be well worth the third-round ADP. Of course, that's the risk you take.

Blake Griffin (back) said he has been working on corner 3-pointers this summer.

Surprisingly, Blake was very good at corner treys last season, making 8-of-18 (44.4 percent). Griffin's offensive game really came on last season and he was still able to take 48 percent of his shots at the rim, which explains his 52.8 percent from the field. On top of that, he shot 74 percent from the line after the break. He is over his back injury and is worth a look at the end of the first round.

JaVale McGee (leg) and J.J. Hickson (knee) are expected to participate in some of practice on Wednesday.

Coach Brian Shaw said his center spot is a competition with Timofey Mozgov. Shaw said Mozgov has the edge on offense and McGee has the edge on defense. McGee didn't get much run in his brief action in 2013-14, but his upside in blocks makes him someone to watch at camp.

Solomon Hill joined George Hill, Rodney Stuckey, David West and Roy Hibbert in part of Tuesday's practice.

C.J. Miles (calf) missed part of practice today, so this isn't a concrete report. However, Hill seems to be the favorite for minutes at small forward this season. He has a decent 3-point shot and made 39 percent from beyond the arc in each of his last two seasons at Arizona. If he can capitalize on his opportunity, Hill is a dark horse for production in his sophomore season and is a possible sleeper in standard formats.

Chris Copeland has been moved to small forward full time.

It's a move based on the fallout of Paul George's (leg) injury. Copeland played an overwhelming amount of his playing time at power forward with the Pacers, but he has some range and his game can translate to the three. If Solomon Hill flops, Copeland could emerge as an asset in standard leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins' goal this season is to have no more than five technical fouls, according to a picture posted by teammate Reggie Evans.

DMC tied for the league lead with 16 techs last season, and during the 2013-14 season he had a league-high 17 technicals, four ejections and three flagrant fouls. He was focused and effective with Team USA this summer and may finally be turning the corner, maturity-wise, which makes him an even more appealing fantasy option in the latter half of the first round.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said that the PF position is "open for competition," citing the need for more rebounding and physical defense.

"We had two of the top rebounders in the league last year with Omer [Asik] and Dwight [Howard] and we were still like 20th in rebounding. What does that say about the other guys? Not much," McHale said. Jones will need to fend off Donatas Motiejunas during training camp, but he started 71 games last year and is the favorite to do so again this season. In other news, the Rockets intend to pick up Jones' $2.5 million fourth-year contract option, which is an easy decision, but they won't do so until the Oct. 31 deadline.

Jeff Green and Gerald Wallace may earn minutes at PF early in the season, according to Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

Green reportedly got stronger this season and aims to be a leader for Boston, but fantasy owners would settle for an improvement on last year's lousy 41.2 percent shooting. The possibility that he and Wallace might play some PF spells trouble for Brandon Bass, especially if Jared Sullinger is starting at PF on opening night.

Jameer Nelson wore a white jersey during the Mavericks' first practice on Tuesday, suggesting that he'll start at PG ahead of Raymond Felton and Devin Harris.

Felton will open the season with a four-game suspension and Harris is better suited as a backup combo guard, which basically hands the job to Nelson by default. "He’s just got a grit and toughness about him that we really need on this team this year," said Carlisle, who described Nelson as a "natural leader." As a starting PG he'd be a decent source of assists and 3-pointers, making him worth a look in the final rounds.

James Harden told reporters on Tuesday, "I know at times my defense is pretty bad."

Admitting you have a problem is the first step, and Harden vowed to improve on the defensive end of the court. We'll believe it when we see it, as we're too used to seeing Harden drift fecklessly around on defense. The good news is that his shortcomings don't prevent him from being a solid top-6 fantasy pick in nearly all formats.

Lakers rookie Julius Randle said on Monday that he's prepared to come off the bench behind Carlos Boozer on opening night.

"[Boozer] deserves what he gets because he's put in the time and he's been successful," Randle said. "We're both going to be on the floor, whoever starts or not; that's not really my focus or worry." Randle is 19 years old and he's sure to have some growing pains in the NBA, making him a more appealing fantasy target after the All-Star break.
