Rudy Gay (Achilles) will travel to Utah for Monday's game but his status remains uncertain.

The very fact that he traveled with the team is encouraging and with luck we'll get a definitive update after shootaround, but it's more likely that he's headed for a game-time decision. Derrick Williams has started at SF in each of the past two games with Gay sidelined.

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.

Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year deal with the Lakers for the veteran's minimum.

As expected, the Lakers keep their financial flexibility for the free agent market in 2018. Bogut is familiar with coach Luke Walton from his Warriors days and should slide in as Brook Lopez's backup, though Ivica Zubac isn't just going to hand him his minutes. He's not a fantasy target after averaging 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 blocks last season.

Brandon Rush's agent announced that his client has signed a deal with the Bucks.

The specifics of the deal aren't known, but it's likely for the veteran's minimum. Rush will provide some depth off the bench behind Tony Snell and Khris Middleton at the 2 and 3, but won't see enough minutes to help most fantasy owners.

OG Anunoby (knee) won't be ready for training camp according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN.

He was always a longshot to be ready for camp after undergoing surgery (right ACL) in January. Lewenberg adds that the Raptors don’t expect to have him back on the court until November at the earliest, but the rookie should get some burn once he's healthy for his defensive ability. He's not worth monitoring in most re-draft leagues until he receives full clearance. Norman Powell and C.J. Miles will hold down the fort on the wings next to DeMar DeRozan.

Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to Denver.

General manager Tim Connelly said back in April that the restricted free agent was going to be a "huge piece" of their core, so he was never expected to leave Denver. Plumlee will be Nikola Jokic's backup this season and will compete for minutes with Kenneth Faried, so his outlook is far from ideal. The arrival of Paul Millsap doesn't help either. Plumlee averaged 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 blocks with the Nuggets last season in 23.4 minutes per game, but he will have a tough time matching those numbers this time around.
