Joakim Noah was battling an illness at Thursday's practice, leaving his status for Friday's game uncertain.

We'll mark him as questionable to suit up vs. the Bucks and fantasy owners should check for updates following shootaround. If he's unable to play, Nazr Mohammed would slide into the starting center position and more minutes would be available for Taj Gibson.

Both Joel Embiid (foot) and Nerlens Noel were left off the 76ers' Summer League roster.

76ers' GM Sam Hinkie said that he did not anticipate Embiid playing in Summer League after his most recent setback, and it looks like that will be the case. There's a legitimate chance that Embiid misses the entire 2015-16 season, and if that is how this thing plays out, Noel and Jahlil Okafor will get all the minutes they can handle in Philadelphia's frontcourt.

The Bucks, Pelicans and Knicks are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Blazers remain in the mix, but after acquiring Mason Plumlee, they may elect to let Lopez walk if the offers get to rich for their liking. Alvin Gentry coached Lopez during his first four years in the league with the Suns, so that could perhaps tilt the odds in New Orleans' favor in luring away Robin from Portland.

The Kings are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Jeremy Lin.

With Sacramento also said to be interested in Ty Lawson, Dennis Schroder, and Jrue Holiday, it seems apparent that they're looking to add another point guard to the roster. It's being reported that they would like this additional guard to play alongside Darren Collison, so while Collison's value would take a bit of a hit, it wouldn't be as dramatic as the decrease in value he'd see if he's forced to the bench.

Rudy Gay is reportedly among the "loudest voices" urging Rajon Rondo to come to Sacramento.

There's reportedly mutual interest between Rondo and the Kings, but wherever he lands, he's reportedly only going to sign a one-year deal in an attempt to reestablish his value after a rocky season in Dallas. Having Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins on the same team could make for some interesting headlines, but with the way things have been going in Sacramento, why not add Rondo to the mix?

Mo Williams reportedly anticipates a meeting with the Cavs, and the team is "very interested" in bringing him back to Cleveland.

Williams will be an unrestricted free agent, and with the Cavs said to be looking for a scoring point guard to come off the bench behind Kyrie Irving, Williams fits the bill. It'll be interesting to see where he lands as a free agent, but his value wouldn't be great in Cleveland.

DeAndre Jordan is reportedly deciding between the Mavericks and the Clippers as an unrestricted free agent.

Jordan is reportedly looking for a four-year deal with a player option for the final season of the contract, which essentially nullifies the Clippers advantage in retaining him from a numbers perspective. Jordan would reportedly like to be more involved in the offense, and is sick of being the third wheel in Los Angeles behind Blake Griffin and Chris Paul. He has meetings scheduled with the Knicks, Lakers, Mavs, and Clippers, but the Mavs are currently believed to be the frontrunners for Jordan.

The Spurs are reportedly interested in trading for Brendan Haywood.

To be clear, the Spurs are likely interested in Haywood's non-guaranteed deal worth $10.5 million, and not Haywood himself. Haywood's contract does not become fully guaranteed until August 2, so if the Spurs waive him, they could open up quiet a bit of cap room for a big name free agent such as LaMarcus Aldridge. The Cavs are said to be looking for a scoring point guard to come off the bench behind Kyrie Irving, so perhaps they’re eying Patty Mills in this potential deal. Tiago Splitter or Boris Diaw would also need to be included to make the numbers work.

The Thunder will reportedly meet with Enes Kanter in Chicago on July 1, and are set to offer him a 3-4 year deal that could reach maximum-level money with incentives.

OKC is very high on Kanter, and they've said all along that they will make re-signing him as a restricted free agent a priority this offseason. Kanter had a nice run with the Thunder during the 2014-15 season, putting in averages of 18.7 points and 11.0 rebounds per game on 56.6 percent shooting from the field. The Mavs will reportedly pursue Kanter, but most signs point to him returning to OKC next season.

Unrestricted free agent Dwyane Wade and owner Micky Arison have met to discuss a way forward.

The Heat want Wade back, but Wade is looking for a big multiple-year deal. According to Chris Broussard, league executives are saying there "is not a robust market" for Wade. Unless some contending team offers what Wade wants, he's likely to stay with the Heat for being such an icon in the city.

The Sacramento Kings are probing Kentucky head coach John Calipari's interest in running the front office and coaching the team, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Coach Cal has reportedly been communicating with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive over the past few weeks and has listened to scenarios that would give him complete control over basketball operations in addition to the head coaching position. A hire of Calipari would seem to spell the end of vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac and head coach George Karl in Sacramento as one league insider said Ranadive is "trying to find a magic button to push that'll fix everything."

Jimmy Butler is likely to return to the Bulls after postponing meetings with teams interested in signing him, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.

Butler had meetings scheduled with the Celtics, 76ers, Lakers, and Mavericks, but has apparently postponed those meetings after reportedly receiving a max offer from the Bulls. We'll have to wait and see how this plays out, but Broussard is reporting that Butler is now just deciding how many years he wants to re-sign with Chicago for.
