Dwight Howard has made his decision and will "possibly" announce it on Twitter this weekend.

Well, that's one way to pick up more followers of @DwightHoward. It's not a surprise that Dwight will drag this out and hopefully he counts Friday as part of his weekend. The Warriors are picking up some serious momentum in getting Dwight, so the longer the delay, the greater the likelihood of Golden State acquires him. The word on the street is the Warriors are relentlessly trying to get Andris Biedrins and Richard Jefferson off their books, but they'd obviously be willing to dump Andrew Bogut if it meant Dwight was coming to town.

Derrick Rose suffered a sprained left ankle on Friday and is questionable to return.

He looked like he had a minor ankle tweak earlier in the game, but he was able to play through it. This issue doesn't seem like a huge deal, but of course it will be heavily magnified because it's Derrick Rose. Stay tuned.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday that the Wolves and Ricky Rubio have come to an agreement on a four-year, $55 million extension.

If there are any new interesting details we'll pass them along but this makes sense for the Wolves and it really makes sense for Rubio, since there is some doubt as to whether or not he can be a difference-maker at a competitive position in the NBA. Still, he's shown enough to be worth this type of risk, as the addition of a jump shot would make him deadly on the offensive end.

Reggie Jackson (ankle) has progressed from his ankle injury and will make his season debut on Saturday against the Nuggets barring a setback.

It's about time the Thunder received some good news. Jackson is easily OKC's best offensive player right now and he put up a robust 32.6 usage rate last season while Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) were on the bench. He shouldn't be on a single waiver wire right now and is a must-start player. If you added Sebastian Telfair, you might want to look elsewhere.

Courtney Lee has been diagnosed with a mild concussion and he will not return on Friday.

He was playing extremely well and had 12 points in the first half before the injury. It's actually encouraging to hear that it's just a mild concussion because he looked awfully woozy. Tayshaun Prince started the second half in Lee's place and there really is no fantasy pickup here.
Oct 31 - 8:27 PM

Jimmy Butler (thumb) has been ruled out for Friday night against the Cavs.

He's officially inactive and will miss his second game of the season. The Bulls fared pretty well without him and Mike Dunleavy should help on the wing. Kirk Hinrich will also start at shooting guard, which makes Aaron Brooks the backup point guard. Fantasy owners should keep Butler stashed.
Oct 31 - 7:59 PM

Klay Thompson and the Warriors agreed to a four-year max contract on Friday.

The deal is expected to be worth around $70 million and neither side has an opt-out clause. Thompson has become more than just a shooter and has done a better job at scoring around the basket. The Warriors will get the 24-year-old guard entering his prime and will play minutes in the high 30s, but this is still a lot of money even with the cap changes coming. He's an elite fantasy shooting guard and could even get better this season.
Oct 31 - 5:09 PM

David Lee (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers and did not participate in the contact portion of Friday's practice.

He was ruled out for Wednesday very early and he sounds a little closer to doubtful. Draymond Green double-doubled in the opener and the Warriors probably won't need Lee against the Lakers anyway, so Lee's owners will probably want to plan on him sitting. Draymond will be a must-start player.
Oct 31 - 4:15 PM

Victor Oladipo (face) is still on pain medication and has not started conditioning exercises.

He doesn't have a timetable to return, but there is a sense he'll be out until early December. Oladipo has huge expectations this season and he should still be stashed across the board. In the meantime, Evan Fournier looked great on Thursday and should put up top-100 value while VO is on the shelf.

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is day-to-day and has been working on a treadmill.

The Rockets said they will know more about his status for Saturday's game against the Celtics tomorrow. Beverley is not afraid to play at less than 100 percent, but the team certainly doesn't want this issue to linger. They released Ish Smith, so it'll be Isaiah Canaan as the backup against Rajon Rondo. His owners will want to check back for an update tomorrow.
Oct 31 - 3:37 PM

The Spurs and Kawhi Leonard have ended talks about a contract extension, making Leonard will be a restricted free agent next summer.

Kawhi and his agent, Brian Elfus, want a max extension and the Spurs have no leverage here. He's easily one of the best players in the NBA under 24 and is coming off a Finals MVP. Last season, Leonard made 69 percent of his shots at the rim with ranking in the top 10 for field goal percentage on pull-up jumpers in the regular season (minimum average of 2.5 attempts at least 30 games). He'll make his debut tonight in a contract season, so get the fantasy stud in your lineup.
Oct 31 - 2:23 PM

Brook Lopez is still experiencing pain in his right foot, and will not play in Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

There is currently no timetable set for Lopez' return, and this isn't a great start to his 2014-15 campaign. Mason Plumlee will continue to start in Brook's place, and he'll look to bounce-back after foul trouble limited him to just four points and four rebounds in his season debut.
