Glen Davis (shoulder) said he's definitely playing on Monday night against the Bulls.

He went to the basket on Sunday night and crashed under the basket, which caused him a lot of pain and to remain down for a couple minutes. Davis actually took the Magic's last shot in the game after coming back -- and air-ball 3-point attempt. He has a low upside, so fantasy owners can use him like they normally would.

Alec Burks said on Wednesday that he likes coach Quin Snyder's new offense.

"I feel like Quin plays my style," Burks said. "He wants to play with pace, open space. I do that for a living. I love to do that." He still hasn't been named as the official starter at shooting guard, but just about all signs suggest he'll be in that slot. Based on how he posted a 51.2 effective field goal percentage and a 23.1 usage rate after the break last season, Burks could have a breakout season.

C.J. Miles (strained calf) said that he's been playing alongside Rodney Stuckey in the Pacers' first unit during recent practices.

It's too early to declare Miles and Stuckey the team's starting swingmen, but the veterans appear to be the early favorites ahead of guys like Solomon Hill, C.J. Watson, Damjan Rudez and Chris Copeland. Hill has been filling in as a starter for portions of practice which Miles can't play in, due to his injury, and there's reason to believe this position battle is just getting started.

The Grizzlies are encouraging Marc Gasol to look for his own shot more often this season.

Gasol is a phenomenal passer for a center, but Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger wants him to be much more aggressive. "He’s got to score the ball. That’s all there is to it," Joerger said. "It doesn’t make you a selfish player. It just means people can’t guard you." Gasol missed 23 games last year after spraining his MCL, but the injury is behind him and he's been very durable throughout his career. He has top-20 upside but his current ADP of 44.0 suggests he's reliably undervalued in fantasy drafts.

76ers coach Brett Brown admitted that he's concerned about Nerlens Noel's ability to physically withstand the rigors of an 82-game season.

"We are all going to have to hold our breath a little bit as he starts to put on weight and starts to handle that side of the NBA physically," said Brown. "It is a worry for me because he plays so active in the air. But you turn him loose, and you wind him up. He is easy to motivate to play defense, and to see him interact with his teammates [during Tuesday's practice] was great." Noel's FT percentage will likely be a killer, but he should be a fun player to own as a starting big man on the up-tempo Sixers.

Joakim Noah (left knee) scrimmaged without any setbacks on Wednesday, and said afterward that he felt better than he did on Tuesday.

Noah wore a large brace to protect his knee but it didn't seem to bother him. He had arthroscopic surgery in May and is anticipating a "grueling season," but the fact that he's playing without restrictions bodes well for his season outlook.
Oct 1 - 1:19 PM

Heat PF Josh McRoberts (toe surgery) returned to practice on Tuesday, but he'll sit out Wednesday's scrimmage as a precaution.

McRoberts anticipates being fully healthy for opening night. He's is the uncontested starting PF for Miami this season, with Udonis Haslem as his most prominent backup, so minutes should be plentiful. He may not control the ball as often as he did last year but fantasy owners can still rely on him for a unique combination of 3-pointers, assists and some defensive stats, all with admirably few turnovers.

Jarrett Jack has been playing with the second unit during the Nets' first three days of training camp.

Jack may spend some time alongside Deron Williams during the course of games, but it doesn't appear coach Lionel Hollins is considering him as a starting SG. That likely means that Joe Johnson will play SG with either Andrei Kirilenko, Bojan Bogdanovic or Alan Anderson at SF, but this picture could change overnight as Hollins evaluates his team during the preseason.

Kevin Martin admitted that he "cut corners" during training camp and regular-season practices last season.

"I'm not going to be able to get away with the things I did the past five or six years because I have to be ... that big-brother type that has to do things the right way and not just get by on talent," Martin said. His honesty is commendable but the fact that he's been taking shortcuts for "five or six years" can't be welcome news for the franchise's paying him millions of dollars per season. Regardless, the veteran is poised to start at SG for coach Flip Saunders and he's vowed to lead by example. Fantasy owners should wait until the late rounds to target K-Mart.

76ers second-round pick K.J. McDaniels opted to sign a non-guaranteed one-year contract, which will make him a restricted free agent in 2015.

It's a highly unusual move for a rookie, but McDaniels is betting that he can stay healthy and quickly land a bigger payday in free agency. A starting job at SG or SF is within his grasp and he'll essentially be in a contract year as a rookie, which is all the more reason to target him in the final rounds of typical fantasy drafts.

Coach Byron Scott said Kobe Bryant plans on playing in all eight preseason games this month.

Kobe is looking to get the rust off, get his timing and get his legs ready for the regular season. There is some talk of his minutes coming down, but Bryant should still be around 32 per game. If he can stay healthy, he'll be well worth the third-round ADP. Of course, that's the risk you take.
Sep 30 - 9:18 PM

JaVale McGee (leg) and J.J. Hickson (knee) are expected to participate in some of practice on Wednesday.

Coach Brian Shaw said his center spot is a competition with Timofey Mozgov. Shaw said Mozgov has the edge on offense and McGee has the edge on defense. McGee didn't get much run in his brief action in 2013-14, but his upside in blocks makes him someone to watch at camp.
