Jason Kidd confirmed that the Nets are monitoring Deron Williams' playing time after he missed training camp and most of preseason with an ankle injury.

"We have to figure out how to get him [going] without running him out there for 35 minutes and then he can't play the next night," said Kidd. D-Will played 24 minutes vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, in line with his average through four games. We expect that number to ramp up slowly in the coming weeks, but it's unclear when the minutes-restriction will be totally lifted.

Derrick Rose said his ankle injury was "minor" after Friday's game against the Cavs.

"I'm walking around so I think everyone can breathe," said Rose. Add this to your list of concerns but don't be overly concerned about it, as it comes with the territory of owning him.

LeBron James put the Bulls away in Friday's 114-108 overtime win, making 14-of-30 from the field for 36 points with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

The shot volume was extremely high and coach Tom Thibodeau has been able to keep LeBron in check for much of his career. LeBron shot just 39.2 percent against the Bulls last season, which is by far his lowest against any team last season. Despite two somewhat sub-par offensive games, there is still zero reason to worry.

K.J. McDaniels scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound and zero steals or blocks before leaving Friday's game due to a hip injury after 14 minutes.

We'll pass along details as they come but for now it doesn't sound like it's serious. If you drafted McDaniels you probably should have been stashing him anyway, so try to hold on unless you're looking at a mid-round pickup or the news comes back bad.

Mike Dunleavy flirted with a triple-double against the Cavs on Friday with 14 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

Hello, Dun-Dun. This is one of the best fantasy lines of the season and Dunleavy bounced back beautifully from his Wednesday dud. He's obviously not going to be this good, but if you hate the guy on the end of your bench and want to ride Dunleavy until Jimmy Butler (thumb) gets back, that works.

Derrick Rose suffered an ankle sprain on Friday and did not return, finishing with 20 points, four rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

X-rays were negative and he was able to play through it before heading to the locker room several minutes later. Rose is likely going to be handled with kid gloves, so he's extremely questionable for Saturday against the Wolves. Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks get an uptick in fantasy value.

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.
