Danny Ainge has ruled out rookie James Young (neck) for the remainder of the Summer League.

"He'll be fine in a couple of weeks. Maybe a week," said Ainge. Young was involved in a car accident last month that gave him whiplash and concussion-like symptoms. This is just the team playing it safe with one of their lottery picks and not much should be read into this. Young should be fine heading into training camp.

Jimmy Butler (thumb) will be re-evaluated in "a week or so," according to coach Tom Thibodeau.

That would put him in jeopardy of missing the season opener on Wednesday against the New York Knicks. Butler suffered the injury on Sunday and he will miss the rest of the preseason. He was having a superb preseason and should be more efficient this year, so fantasy owners can still target him in the middle rounds.

Gerald Henderson's strained right hamstring will prevent him from playing in Charlotte's preseason finale on Thursday.

He has yet to resume full-contact practices and had a setback earlier in the week, so there are no guarantees that he'll be ready for opening night. He barely helped fantasy owners last season despite averaging 32 minutes per game as a starter, so there's no reason to touch him while he's coming off the bench.

Victor Oladipo (sprained MCL) is "hopeful" that he can play in Orlando's season opener, but he remains day-to-day.

Oladipo returned to practice on Monday and the Magic would like to see him on the court for Friday's finale, but they won't risk playing him at less than full strength. The Magic open their regular season vs. New Orleans on Tuesday, Oct. 26.

The NBA's owners voted down proposed changes to the draft lottery system on Tuesday, in favor of the existing system.

The 76ers initially led the charge to keep the current system, which makes sense because they're hoping to land a No. 1 draft pick next summer. They were joined by 12 other teams which voted 'No' on the changes, nearly all of which were small-market teams who felt the changes could favor bigger markets by further increasing their access to elite talent. For a reminder about the current draft lottery's setup, follow the link below.

The Spurs were overwhelmingly favored to repeat as NBA champions in a recent survey of the league's GMs, with Gregg Popovich earning 92.9 percent of votes for 'Best Coach.'

Joakim Noah earned the nod for 'Best Defensive Player,' Jabari Parker was declared the rookie who will impress the most in five years, and Tyson Chandler's trade to Dallas was voted the 'Most Underrated Acquisition' of the summer. You can peruse the full results by clicking on the link below.

Chris Kaman received three stitches on his head after being accidentally bitten by Nuggets C Timofey Mozgov.

Kaman said he felt "pretty good" after the game, but the Blazers tested him for a concussion and he's uncertain to play on Wednesday. He isn't holding the bizarre incident against Mozgov, either. "I went back pretty hard and I must've hit him in the chest," Kaman said. "He kind of folded over and his teeth went down on my head."

Isaiah Thomas led the Suns with 26 points in Tuesday's road win, hitting 6-of-12 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in just 31 minutes off the bench.

IT3 made two 3-pointers while adding four rebounds, one assist and two steals to round out his evening. Jeff Hornacek has been open about his willingness to experiment with a three-guard lineup, pairing Thomas with starters Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. Even if that idea gets shelved, Thomas has enough per-minute upside to justify a pick in the late-middle rounds.

Ronnie Price had seven points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in another start at PG on Tuesday, earning praise from coach Byron Scott before the game.

There's actually a chance that Price could start ahead of Jeremy Lin on opening night, but we'll believe it when we see it. With Steve Nash is already suffering a recurrence of nerve-related pain, however, Price is creeping onto the fantasy radar as the Lakers' presumptive backup PG.

Wes Johnson finished Tuesday's loss with 15 points, three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks, but he also committed eight turnovers and missed a critical pair of free throws.

Xavier Henry (knee) and Nick Young (thumb) are both out of commission, which helps Johnson's cause, but he may hold onto a starting job even when L.A. is at full strength. This was his first double-digit scoring game of the preseason but has unique fantasy appeal after averaging 1.3 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.0 blocks for the depleted Lakers last season. Give him a look if you need a swingman in the final round.

Jeremy Lin returned from two sprained ankles on Tuesday, notching 15 points (including 8-of-10 FTs), four rebounds, five dimes and two steals off the Lakers' bench.

Ronnie Price started at PG and coach Byron Scott said he likes how Lin has played with the second unit. Lin was returning from injury and we still expect him to get the nod on opening night. He'll hold solid value even if he does begin the season the focal point of the second unit's offense, and the return of Nick Young could also bump him back into the starting five. If you drafted Lin, or plan to, there's no need to panic.
Oct 22 - 12:57 AM

JaVale McGee (fractured leg) made his preseason debut on Tuesday, coming off the bench for one point, two rebounds and one block in 11 minutes.

McGee was playing on a 15-minute limit and it should take him a while to get up to speed, considering he missed all but five games last season. With Timofey Mozgov starting at center and improving every day, it's hard to be optimistic about McGee's season outlook. At best, he's a late-round flier for owners desperate for blocks.
