Brook Lopez (ankle) will start against the Wizards on Wednesday.

For the first time in a while, the Nets are at full strength. They will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson and Kevin Garnett next to Lopez while Paul Pierce will come off the bench. Fantasy owners can insert their top-notch center back into their lineups. Andray Blatche does lose some value, but he might be able to sustain some level of consistency even off the bench since he plays both center and power forward.

In an interview with NBCDFW.com, Deron Williams (sports hernia) said that he will be ready in time for training camp.

"Feeling really good. It's healing pretty well, I'm doing a lot of work on and off the court. I haven't got the full-go clearance yet but that's coming soon," Williams said. "I'll be ready to go definitely by the time training camp rolls around." He added that he's already jumping and running, and said that his next checkup is August 1st. Williams re-signed with the Mavs on a one-year, $10 million deal and should be team's starting point guard once again. However, he's more of a late-round pick after averaging 14.1 points on 41.1 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 treys, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game last season.

Meyers Leonard (shoulder surgery) said that he's hoping to be ready around the start of the 2016-17 season.

"It's a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court," Leonard said. "We'll see. You just never know." The Blazers won't be in a hurry to rush him back after re-signing him to a four-year deal worth $41 million, and most players tend to be a little too optimistic about timetables anyways. If the Blazers re-sign Moe Harkless, Leonard's outlook for the 2016-17 campaign won't be great with Al-Farouq Aminu expected to play more power forward.

Tyler Zeller has agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with the Celtics.

The second year of the deal is a team option, so the Celtics will still keep their financial flexibility for the 2017 offseason. Zeller was solid in limited minutes last season, averaging 6.1 points, 3.0 boards and 0.4 blocks in 11.8 minutes per game. He won't have much fantasy value with Amir Johnson and Al Horford around.

Gerald Green has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Celtics.

Once Green signs, they will have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster. Green is coming off a disappointing season in Miami where he averaged 8.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting. He will likely have a limited role at best in Boston.

Paul George made his return to Team USA action on Friday, scoring 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.

It was his first Team USA televised game since his horrific leg injury. George had a couple breakaway dunks and he justifiably took it easy on those. After the game on NBATV, he did add it was "eerie" for him to get back on the court and said there were a lot of emotions. George looked better than expected last year, especially early in the season. Even with the new players, he's still expected to have a great season with the vast majority of his minutes coming at small forward.

Kevin Durant lit it up against Argentina in a Team USA tune-up on Friday, scoring 23 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

It still hasn't sunk in yet that he's on the Warriors, has it? Durant was magnificent in this game, making 7-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a tidy 81.0 true shooting percentage. He did have a tweak to his leg in the second half, but it didn't cost him any playing time. His game is made for fantasy, so expect him to be elite even with a slight dip in usage next year.

Juan Hernangomez is expected to join the Nuggets for the 2016-17 season.

He probably would see a lot more playing time if he stayed in Spain, but the Nuggets saw enough at the summer league to bring him over immediately. He averaged 10.2 points and 8.2 rebounds on 54.5 percent shooting from the field this summer, but he likely won't be a significant part of the rotation right out of the gate because they're loaded at the three and four.

The NBA has officially moved 2017's All-Star Weekend out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

HB2 is the reason for the move, but commissioner Adam Silver is hopeful that by 2019 the league can re-schedule Charlotte as the host of All-Star Weekend. New Orleans is believed to be the current front-runner to land the 2017 All-Star Game, but there's sure to be many teams making their pitches to commissioner Silver. Hornet's Chairman Michael Jordan released a statement following the news, saying that while he is disappointed, he understands the league's decision.

The Knicks are reportedly interested in trading for Greg Monroe.

The Bucks has made it painfully clear that Monroe is available, and the Knicks seem like a realistic landing spot given that they were one of his primary suitors when he was a free agent. Sam Amico reports that the Knicks would likely need to get a third team involved in order to strike a deal, and that if a trade were to go down, it likely wouldn't happen until December.

Jae Crowder said that the pain in his right ankle has finally subsided.

Crowder played through a severely sprained right ankle during the 2016 postseason, and the fact that the pain didn't subside until two months after his season ended speaks to his immense toughness. Crowder also voiced his frustration with Kevin Durant's decision to join Golden State, and said he's "for sure" looking to beat the Warriors next season more so than any other team in the league.
Jul 21 - 3:01 PM

Cheick Diallo and the Pelicans have agreed to a three-year deal.

He's almost certainly going to be on the roster to start the season. Diallo was very impressive in Summer League, especially on the defensive end. He has a decent jumper, but he doesn't have much skill just yet. Considering how much Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca struggled, maybe Diallo can get minutes.
