Lou Williams (knee surgery) is still without a timetable to return.

He's "progressing well," but it doesn't sound like he's going to be ready for camp in 11 days. The Hawks are thin at shooting guard and John Jenkins might be getting more playing time in November than originally thought. They could also look to rookie Dennis Schröder to help fill the temporary void. Williams is going to be a risky pick late in drafts until further notice.

John Collins posted a 14-point, 13-rebound double-double during Sunday's loss to the Nets, adding one block and two turnovers in just 21 minutes off the bench.

Collins has been playing with great energy to open the 2017-18 season, and he did a phenomenal job attacking the boards in this one with his 28.9 rebounding rate. Simply put, Collins is too good to keep off the floor, and there's a good chance he'll find himself starting for the Hawks at some point this season. He's a highly attractive stash in most leagues.

Milos Teodosic has been diagnosed with a plantar fascia injury in left foot and will be out indefinitely, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Plantar fascia injuries can be tricky to heal, and they tend to only get better with prolonged rest, so Teodosic figures to miss a good chunk of time here making him a drop-candidate in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot. Patrick Beverley, Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will see a spike in minutes with Teodosic on the sidelines, but there's not really an obvious pick up here in 12-team leagues.

Dennis Schroder rolled his left ankle during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in Brooklyn and did not return.

Schroder was in some very obvious pain, and unable to put any pressure at all on his left foot on the way back to the locker room, so he's almost assuredly looking at a multi-game absence here. He struggled mightily to find his shot in Sunday's matinee, finishing with 17 points on 5-of-22 shooting (7-of-7 from the stripe), eight assists, four boards, two steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes. If he does need to miss time, Malcolm Delaney will likely be logging heavy minutes as a starter, and he's on the radar as a potential speculative add in deep leagues.

The Suns have reportedly fired head coach Earl Watson.

The Suns have gotten off to a dreadful start this season, with egregious back-to-back-to-back blowouts, and someone had to take the blame for those horrible losses. In the meantime, associate head coach Jay Triano should step up as the interim head coach, and it would make sense to see guys like Marquese Chriss and Alex Len to become a larger part of the rotation, putting both those guys on the radar as a speculative add in 12-team formats.

Eric Bledsoe tweeted on Sunday afternoon, "I don't wanna be here."

The Suns opened up the 2016-17 season with three horrendous blowouts, and Bledsoe obviously has not been thrilled with the early results. The 27-year-old guard doesn't make much sense on the rebuilding Suns' team, but him seemingly publicly requesting a trade on Twitter isn't exactly the best way to handle things. Suns owner Robert Sarver is reportedly going to meet with head coach Earl Watson today, and Bledsoe will assuredly be a part of that conversation. Bledsoe isn't in a great spot for fantasy value in Phoenix, so a trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing here.

Kawhi Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors.

The Spurs apparently aren't going to provide a timetable for Leonard, but based on a video that went viral on Friday showing him struggling to walk up stairs, we'd speculate that he's not all that close. Rudy Gay and Kyle Anderson will continue to pick up the small forward minutes in his absence, with Gay being the more attractive target in fantasy hoops.

An MRI revealed a sprained left ankle for Jonas Valanciunas and he is being listed as day-to-day.

Valanciunas will be traveling with the team for their upcoming six-game road trip, but he'll miss Monday's game in San Antonio. With JV on the sidelines, Lucas Nogueira could enter the starting five, and he might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues for those seeking a shot-blocking specialist. Serge Ibaka should be able to get closer to 30 minutes a night while Valanciunas is out.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is expected to start in his regular-season debut on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

KCP has served his two-game suspension, so he should be starting the rest of the way, which will result in Corey Brewer heading back to the bench. There also might not be quite as many minutes available for Jordan Clarkson, and Lonzo Ball could see a minor dip in usage. Feel free to get Caldwell-Pope active.
Oct 22 - 4:12 PM

Caris LeVert will enter the starting five for Sunday's game against the Hawks, sending Allen Crabbe back to the bench.

The Nets will roll out a starting five featuring D'Angelo Russell, LeVert, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov in this one, and the starter designation makes LeVert an intriguing DFS option. Crabbe has actually played better with the second unit this season, and he should still see quality minutes regardless of how he enters the game, so he doesn't necessarily lose value in a bench role.
Oct 22 - 2:49 PM

Seth Curry (left tibia stress reaction) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Warriors.

Monday will mark Curry's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and it's unclear exactly when he'll be able to get back to the court. Head coach Rick Carlisle has indicated that this will be a week-by-week issue, and with Dallas ruling him out a full day in advance, it doesn't seem like he's all that close. With Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) also questionable, Yogi Ferrell could be forced into heavy minutes on Monday night with J.J. Barea earning the start.

Dennis Smith Jr. (left knee effusion) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

DSJ has missed the last two games due to a "little swelling" in his knee, but the Mavs did downplay the issue. DSJ's owners can expect an update no later than Monday's morning shootaround. J.J. Barea looks like a nice speculative add and went for 19 points, five rebounds, three assists and three triples against Houston on Saturday.
