The Lakers have won the blind auction for the rights to claim the recently amnestied forward Carlos Boozer.

Boozer was amnestied by the Bulls on Tuesday, collecting the $16.8M remaining on his contract. The Lakers were widely viewed as the big losers in free agency, failing to sign any noteworthy free agents, including Carmelo Anthony. Now it appears their consolation prize will be Boozer after they placed the highest bid in the blind auction to win the right to claim him. His fantasy value is still somewhat in question however, as he joins the loaded front court in L.A. that includes Ed Davis, Jordan Hill, and rookie Julius Randle. Even so, he should be able to at least reproduce his 13.8 points, and 8.3 rebounds he averaged last season in Chicago.

Klay Thompson and the Warriors agreed to a four-year max contract on Friday.

The deal is expected to be worth around $70 million and neither side has an opt-out clause. Thompson has become more than just a shooter and has done a better job at scoring around the basket. The Warriors will get the 24-year-old guard entering his prime and will play minutes in the high 30s, but this is still a lot of money even with the cap changes coming. He's an elite fantasy shooting guard and could even get better this season.

David Lee (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers and did not participate in the contact portion of Friday's practice.

He was ruled out for Wednesday very early and he sounds a little closer to doubtful. Draymond Green double-doubled in the opener and the Warriors probably won't need Lee against the Lakers anyway, so Lee's owners will probably want to plan on him sitting. Draymond will be a must-start player.
Oct 31 - 4:15 PM

Victor Oladipo (face) is still on pain medication and has not started conditioning exercises.

He doesn't have a timetable to return, but there is a sense he'll be out until early December. Oladipo has huge expectations this season and he should still be stashed across the board. In the meantime, Evan Fournier looked great on Thursday and should put up top-100 value while VO is on the shelf.

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is day-to-day and has been working on a treadmill.

The Rockets said they will know more about his status for Saturday's game against the Celtics tomorrow. Beverley is not afraid to play at less than 100 percent, but the team certainly doesn't want this issue to linger. They released Ish Smith, so it'll be Isaiah Canaan as the backup against Rajon Rondo. His owners will want to check back for an update tomorrow.

The Spurs and Kawhi Leonard have ended talks about a contract extension, making Leonard will be a restricted free agent next summer.

Kawhi and his agent, Brian Elfus, want a max extension and the Spurs have no leverage here. He's easily one of the best players in the NBA under 24 and is coming off a Finals MVP. Last season, Leonard made 69 percent of his shots at the rim with ranking in the top 10 for field goal percentage on pull-up jumpers in the regular season (minimum average of 2.5 attempts at least 30 games). He'll make his debut tonight in a contract season, so get the fantasy stud in your lineup.

Brook Lopez is still experiencing pain in his right foot, and will not play in Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

There is currently no timetable set for Lopez' return, and this isn't a great start to his 2014-15 campaign. Mason Plumlee will continue to start in Brook's place, and he'll look to bounce-back after foul trouble limited him to just four points and four rebounds in his season debut.
Oct 31 - 1:27 PM

Josh McRoberts (toe surgery) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

McBob is getting very close to making his regular-season debut with the Heat, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. The Heat play the 76ers on Saturday, so we'll list him as questionable for that one. His ability to offer 3-point shooting and assists with minimal turnovers from the power forward position make him a viable asset in standard leagues.
Oct 31 - 12:47 PM

David West (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies after missing morning shootaround.

He is expected to miss three games and will be re-evaluated after the game on Nov. 1. With West out, it'll be Luis Scola as the starter and while Chris Copeland and Lavoy Allen also get some big-man minutes next to Roy Hibbert. Scola is more of a spot-start guy with a low ceiling in a sub-par matchup.
Oct 31 - 12:23 PM

Jimmy Butler (thumb) participated during Friday morning's shootaround, but remains a game-time decision.

The Bulls could use their defensive stalwart for what will likely be a tough matchup vs. the Cavs, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. Check back for another update as we draw closer to tip-off, but if Butler is to sit this one out, Kirk Hinrich will draw the start and he makes for an alright plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Oct 31 - 12:11 PM

Russell Westbrook suffered a fracture to the second metacarpal in his right hand, and the Thunder say they will release a timetable for his return after getting a better look at it on Friday.

The Oklahoman is speculating that Westbrook could be sidelined for 4-6 weeks, but we'll wait for an official update from the Thunder organization. OKC is going to really struggle to find offense with only eight healthy bodies available, but everything is likely going to be go through Serge Ibaka and Perry Jones. Sebastian Telfair is currently the only healthy point guard on the roster, so he's going to be seeing a lot of minutes and makes sense as a speculative add in deeper leagues, although the Thunder are probably searching for an additional backup guard to join the team (Will Bynum?) Reggie Jackson (ankle) is going to have a lot on his plate upon his return, and he is going to get all the minutes he can handle.

Chris Paul scored 22 points during a close 93-90 win over the Thunder, scoring 22 points with four rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

The Clippers did not look good on offense at all. They led the NBA in offensive efficiency rating, but put up a 39/23/72 percent shooting line from the field, beyond the arc and at the line, respectively. As for Paul, he's probably going to be the best point guard in fantasy hoops as long as he's on the court.
