Brandon Knight scored a career-high 36 points against the Knicks in a double-overtime loss on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers on 13-of-25 shooting.

It wasn't all good news with his eight turnovers and the two assists to go with so many shot attempts isn't exactly prototypical point guard stuff. Knight was taking care of the ball in his three previous games, averaging just 1.3 per game in that span, so he did at least break a trend from earlier this season. The Bucks were missing a lot bodies at the guard spots and Knight almost singlehandedly provided the scoring punch. He has some consistency issues, but should be owned in all standard leagues.

Kris Humphries plans to sign a non-guaranteed deal with the 76ers, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

He worked out with the 76ers on Monday and Tuesday, so he is fully expected to be with the team for the start of camp. Humphries is going to be buried on the depth chart, but he could make the roster as emergency depth. The 32-year-old played 56 games with the Hawks last season and doesn't have fantasy value.

Damian Lillard said he would like to see Caleb Swanigan win Rookie of the Year.

We're reading between the lines on this tweet, but the timing is interesting. Dame saying Swanigan over lottery pick Zach Collins could suggest that Swanigan may be the man to help fill the void left by Noah Vonleh (shoulder). Swanigan is one of the best rebounding prospects to come out this year, which could help after Portland's subpar rebounding recently. The Purdue product lit it up in Las Vegas and he's now on the radar in deep leagues.

Noah Vonleh suffered a right shoulder strain that will keep him out of training camp and likely the first two weeks of the regular season.

He suffered the injury this week during pickup games at the Blazers' practice facility, but the injury will not require surgery. Vonleh may have been looking at more minutes with Allen Crabbe out of the lineup and the Blazers having to go bigger at the three to open up minutes at the four, but now coach Terry Stotts will have to come up with some other ideas. Al-Farouq Aminu figures to benefit most while Caleb Swanigan could have a chance to build off his monster summer league. Keep an eye on Jake Layman, Moe Harkless and Evan Turner to possibly get a boost, as well.

Thunder GM Sam Presti said that Russell Westbrook had a PRP injection in his right knee and will miss the first few days of training camp but that it's "nothing serious."

Obviously not the news you want to hear regarding the league's reigning MVP, but Presti and company clearly don't seem concerned with what they deem a minor procedure. Westbrook tore the meniscus in his right knee back in 2013, but Presti stated that the PRP injection has nothing to do with any past injuries. This is something we'll keep a close eye on over the next couple of weeks, but hopefully, Westrbook can show in the preseason that he isn't limited and will be ready to roll once the regular season tips off.

Andrew Wiggins is progressing toward a five-year, $148 million maximum extension according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Wolves have been saying since July that they will give Wiggins his max deal and Shams Charania adds that he's expected to sign soon. The deal wouldn't kick in until 2018-19 and will keep him under contract through the 2022-23 season. Wiggins is more of a one-trick pony in fantasy for his scoring ability, but he should only improve his all-around game in his age-23 season. Being able to learn from Jimmy Butler could be huge as well.

Barring a surprise, Alex Len is planning to sign his $4.2 million qualifying offer to stay with the Suns.

The Suns open training camp on Sept. 26, but Len is expected to sign the deal prior to that. Len and the Suns weren't able to agree on a long-term deal and he will hit unrestricted free agency in 2018 -- Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN said they want to see how much he develops in 2017-18 before committing to him. The Suns are shopping Tyson Chandler, but Len will compete with Alan Williams for the backup center role until they find Chandler a new home.

Markieff Morris (sports hernia) will undergo surgery this Friday and is expected to miss the start of training camp.

There is no timetable for his return and he will have the procedure in St. Louis. He was extremely durable to start his career, but the 28-year-old missed 18 games in 2015-16 and six games in 2016-17. If Morris does need to miss game action, Kelly Oubre, Mike Scott and Jason Smith would likely pick up some extra minutes. Morris is now only a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Bryan Colangelo said he doesn't anticipate Ben Simmons (foot) having any restrictions during his rookie season.

Colangelo added that Simmons has been playing 5-on-5 for a while now and that he's been "dominating the gym," so it looks like there's a decent chance Simmons will be fully unleashed his rookie year without any minutes limits or restrictions on back-to-back sets. Head coach Brett Brown again stated that he's "locked in" to playing Simmons at point guard on offense "when it's static," so it's clear that he's going to be a huge part of the offense in Philly this season.

Joel Embiid (knee) has yet to go through any 5-on-5 work and head coach Brett Brown said he's not sure what Embiid will be able to do when training camp opens up next week.

76ers' GM Bryan Colangelo made it clear that Embiid has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from the arthroscopic procedure that he underwent on his left knee back in March, but it's a bit strange that Embiid has still not been cleared for contact a full six months removed from what is traditionally just a 4-6 week recovery period. Colangelo also said it's too early to tell when Embiid will be able to scrimmage, so it sounds like he'll be entering camp at less than 100 percent, and there's a chance he might not be ready for the preseason.

Dante Cunningham has agreed to re-sign with the Pelicans on a one-year deal worth $2.3 million, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Timberwolves were reportedly aggressively pursuing Cunningham, but he probably has a better chance of being a regular part of the rotation in New Orleans, so that may have influenced his decision process. Cunningham could potentially start at the three-spot for the Pelicans with Solomon Hill (hamstring) essentially done for the year, but even as a starter, Cunningham won't be a fantasy factor in most leagues.

Danilo Gallinari (thumb) is "just days away from a return and should be ready to go for training camp," according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders.

Gallinari fractured the first metacarpal on his right (shooting) hand after punching an opponent during a EuroBasket exhibition game back in late July. He was expected back on the court in 4-6 weeks according to the original prognosis, so it appears he has not suffered any setbacks. However, Gallo has played in just 175 out of a possible 328 games over the last four seasons, so durability is certainly a concern going forward.
