Jeff Teague returned after spraining his left ankle and finished Tuesday's win with 18 points, 10 assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting.

We'll have to see how his ankle feels in the morning, but he had it re-taped and looked great in his return to action. Rookie Dennis Schroder is pushing him and had six points and seven dimes in 19 minutes, but as long as Teague is healthy, Schroder will have a tough time getting enough minutes to make a fantasy difference.

Jeremy Lin, who has missed three straight games with a sprained ankle, says he will start on Tuesday.

The Lakers are running very thin at point guard and if Lin can stay healthy this season, he's going to get a ton of minutes and production. He looks like an enticing sleeper pick once the big names are gone.

Ty Lawson (hamstring) could play in Friday's preseason finale against the Warriors.

This is good news, as it means he's close to being ready. He is hoping to play in order to keep his conditioning intact, but even if he doesn't play, all signs are him being ready for opening night.

The Magic extended the contract of C Nikola Vucevic for four years and $53 million on Tuesday.

That's quite a pay day for the big man, but he's earned it. He's a top fantasy center option agains this season and remains unchallenged for his job or minutes.

Andrew Wiggins will not play on Tuesday after taking a hard fall on his backside in his last game.

"He's sore...at this point he's probably 50-50," Flip Saunders said. Corey Brewer will start in his place, while Wiggins should be considered day-to-day.

An MRI confirmed that Jimmy Butler has sprained thumb ligaments, and he'll be re-evaluated after Chicago's preseason finale on Friday.

This leaves Butler somewhat iffy for the Bulls' season opener, but at least the MRI didn't reveal more serious damage. Kirk Hinrich, Aaron Brooks, Tony Snell and Mike Dunleavy should absorb a few extra minutes until Butler is ready to return, and Hinrich may be the favorite to start at SG in Friday's exhibition.

Paul George shot around following the Pacers' practice on Monday, making jumpers out to the 3-point line.

It's amazing to see George on the court less than three months after suffering a multiple compound fracture to his right leg. Despite his encouraging progress and optimism that he can return if Indiana makes the playoffs, he remains out indefinitely. The Pacers are proceeding as though he won't return during the 2014-15 season, and he's only worth owning if you don't mind stashing him in an IR spot all year.

Kevin Durant said that he won't rush his return from foot surgery, which is expected to sideline him until at least late November.

"I'm sure I'll feel better in two or three weeks, but definitely don't want to rush it and wind up hurting it even more," Durant said. "I'm taking my time with it. I'm just blessed it happened early in the season where I can get past it, and hopefully by December I'll be ready to play." He'll be re-evaluated in late November, guaranteeing that he'll miss a minimum of 17 games to begin the season.

John Wall (left knee tendinitis) said that he'll play in Wednesday's exhibition.

He could have played on Monday but rested as a precaution, which was a big reason reserve guard Garrett Temple logged 42 minutes. Wall is coming off a career-best year with averages of 19.3 points, 1.3 triples, 4.1 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.8 steals, racking up first-round fantasy value with zero DNPs all season.

Al Jefferson rested on Monday in part due to left ankle soreness.

Although this doesn't sound serious, it's an ominous report considering the early months of his 2013-14 season were plagued by a sprained right ankle. Jefferson's health is essential for the Hornets' chances of building on last year's playoff run and they'll be extra cautious with their 265-pound center, but at the moment there are zero indications that he's in danger of missing the season opener.

Nerlens Noel (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday and he will be available for Thursday's preseason finale.

Noel battled an upper respiratory infection for nearly a week but seems to have recovered, and he said he didn't lose any weight due to the illness. His durability is a question mark, given his lanky frame and high-flying style, but he has tantalizing upside as a rebounder and defensive menace.

Ty Lawson (hamstring) will not play vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

He left Saturday's game with "tightness" in his hamstring and this doesn't appear to be a serious injury. Nevertheless, mounting health concerns are enough to knock Lawson down a peg in fantasy drafts. A serious ankle injury suffered last May prevented him from running until July and it caused the Nuggets "some concern" as recently as mid-October.
