Steve Nash thinks he will likely sit against the Pelicans on Friday.

This news directly from Nash is consistent with the Lakers' plan to sit the veteran for the second game of back-to-backs early in the season. Nash's fantasy value is plummeting by the day as his opportunities to help his owners dwindle with each game missed. Owners searching for a replacement would be wise to give Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake a long, hard look for Friday.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

This is the second day in a row that Bogdanovic has sat out practice, so it looks like he might not be available for Sacramento's regular-season opener against Houston on Wednesday. If he is forced to begin the 2017-18 season on the sidelines, that would open up minutes for guys like Justin Jackson and Buddy Hield.

George Hill (groin) practiced on Monday and is hoping he'll be cleared for Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets.

Hill getting through a full practice is certainly encouraging regarding his status for Wednesday night, and we should have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is cleared to play, that would likely translate to De'Aaron Fox coming off the bench in his NBA debut. Stay tuned.

Luke Walton said he's considering throwing Kyle Kuzma into the starting lineup for the first two games of the season while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope serves his suspension.

Josh Hart (Achilles), Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Luol Deng and Kuzma are all being considered by Walton as potential starters sans KCP, but if Kuzma gets the starting nod, he'd be someone to consider as a potential punt play in daily leagues.

LaMarcus Aldridge has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $72.3 million extension with the Spurs.

Aldridge saw a slight dip in his statistics last season, and only managed to finish the fantasy season with top-55 value in 9-cat leagues, but he looks poised for a strong start to his 2017-18 campaign with Kawhi Leonard (quad) set to begin the year on the sidelines. Savvy fantasy owners may want to consider selling high on Aldridge early on, as he'll likely see a regression in his stats once Leonard makes his way back to the court.

Josh Hart was forced out of Monday's practice with a left Achilles issue, and he is scheduled for an MRI later today.

Hart has had a tough time staying healthy so far, dealing with an ankle issue at Summer League and a hamstring issue that kept him off the floor during training camp and the preseason, so this is yet another unfortunate setback for the first-year two-guard. For what it's worth, Hart was spotted walking around the practice facility, so it doesn't sound like this is a severe Achilles injury, but we'll be waiting for his MRI results before speculating on a timetable.
Oct 16 - 4:11 PM

Julius Randle (ribs) was limited to the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

The Lakers are listing him as day-to-day, and he still has another three full days to get ready for opening night, so him sitting out Monday's scrimmage seems precautionary more than anything else. We'll have a better idea on Randle's status following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to sit out the first game of the season, that would open up minutes for Kyle Kuzma and Larry Nance.
Oct 16 - 4:08 PM

Andre Bogut (groin) did not participate during the scrimmage portion of Monday's practice.

Bogut was able to get through all the other aspects of Monday's practice, and with the Lakers season opener not taking place until Thursday, he still has a good amount of time to get himself ready. However, he won't be playing enough minutes behind Brook Lopez this season to make a difference in 12-team leagues.
Oct 16 - 4:00 PM

Lonzo Ball (ankle) was a full participant at Monday's practice and said he'll definitely be suiting up for the Lakers' season opener against the Clippers on Thursday.

Luke Walton hasn't yet officially cleared Ball for Thursday night, but with him going through a full-contact, 5-on-5 scrimmage, in addition to saying he'll be ready, we'd be quite shocked if he sat out the Lakers' opening night matchup. Ball will be getting all the run he can handle in Los Angeles this season, but efficiency and turnover issues could deflate his value a bit in category-based leagues.
Oct 16 - 3:54 PM

Andre Iguodala (back) and Omri Casspi (ankle) were full participants during Monday's practice.

The Dubs are still listing both these guys as questionable for Tuesday's season opener against the Rockets, but them getting through Monday's practice unscathed suggests they'll be fine for opening night. Iguodala is capable of posting some low-end value in deep leagues, but Casspi is not on the radar in any format.
Oct 16 - 3:39 PM

Will Barton suffered an apparent right ankle injury during Monday's practice, and he should be considered doubtful for Wednesday's season opener against Utah.

Barton was in considerable pain after suffering the injury and needed to be helped off the court, as he wasn't able to put much pressure at all on his injured appendage. Mike Malone speculated that it was an ankle injury, but we'll wait for an official diagnosis from Denver's medical staff. Barton dealt with a lot of left ankle issues in the past, so unfortunately, this injury would be to his good ankle. If he's forced to miss time, that could open up some minutes for Juan Hernangomez.
Oct 16 - 3:12 PM

Jerryd Bayless will likely be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Wizards.

The 76ers will initially be bringing Markelle Fultz off the bench as he recovers from his shoulder issues, so it looks like Philly will be going with a starting five featuring Ben Simmons, Bayless, J.J. Redick, Robert Covington and Joel Embiid on opening night with Fultz and Dario Saric working with the second unit. Bayless probably won't be receiving many minutes as a starter, though, so he's not a great target in most settings.
