The Spurs announced on Friday that Tony Parker signed a multi-year extension.

The deal is reportedly in the ballpark of three-years, and $45 million. It feels like he's been in the NBA forever, but the 32-year-old guard still has a couple years left in his prime. Last season, he averaged 16.7 points, 5.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds. He'll be a PG2 in fantasy leagues due to the fear of coach Gregg Popovich possibly resting his star point guard.

If Draymond Green (knee) can't play against the Pelicans on Friday, Jordan Bell is likely going to start.

What a difference 20 days makes. Back on Sept. 29, coach Steve Kerr said Bell would not be in the rotation to start the year. However, he was the first big off the bench on Tuesday, so now Kerr's "modern-day five" is likely to start across from Anthony Davis. Bell said he'll be looking to pass more as a four man, and he's also previously mentioned his motto is "WWDD" for "What would Draymond do?" Bell is only a speculative pickup for now, but seeing how he performs against AD and Boogie Cousins will be must-see TV for rookie-obbessed fans.

Draymond Green (knee) is doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Friday.

The good news here is Green's MRI came back clean. Although, he is possibly going to miss multiple games due to this knee strain, but he did travel on the three-game road trip to New Orleans, Memphis and Dallas. If Green can't go, the Warriors are expected to start Jordan Bell, who was surprisingly the first big off the bench on Tuesday. Expect to see more minutes go to Nick Young, Pat McCaw and maybe Andre Iguodala.

Myles Turner (sore neck) is questionable to play against the Blazers on Friday.

He looked fine in the game and after the game he talked a lot about leadership -- with a lot of neck movement -- so perhaps he just woke up with stiffness. For now, it does appear to be minor and we'd be surprised to see him not suit up. The Pacers were ridiculously fast with their incredible 130 offensive possessions on Wednesday, which helps explain why Turner busted out for 21 points, 14 boards and four blocks. He has a legit shot to be a first-round player this year.

Kyle Kuzma will play minutes at small forward and power forward to start the season.

This is an expected move for the Lakers and he could even be the first man off the bench. If Luke Walton does keep a short bench, Kuzma could get minutes in the upper 20s out of the gate. He's worth owning in standard leagues and could be a nice DFS play today.
Oct 19 - 2:31 PM

Josh Hart (Achilles) will not play against the Clippers on Thursday.

This has been expected all week since Hart needed an MRI on his Achilles. He has bursitis, so this is more of a day-to-day thing than something that will require a lot of time off. That said, the Lakers won't be rushing him back. With him and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out, Expect to see plenty of minutes going to Jordan Clarkson.

Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) is a game-time call on Friday vs. Detroit.

An MRI revealed no structural damage and he's day-to-day. He's not on your fantasy roster for a reason and the eventual return of Markieff Morris (hernia) limits Smith's fantasy appeal. If he misses Friday's contest, Kelly Oubre will likely be the big winner.
Oct 19 - 1:51 PM

Markieff Morris (hernia) participated in Thursday's non-contact practice.

Coach Scott Brooks said Morris is close to returning to full-contact practice and it sounds like he has a real shot to beat his original timetable that had him returning in mid-November. Once Morris is cleared to play, that would likely dampen the fantasy appeal of Kelly Oubre. Jason Smith (shoulder) would also lose minutes.

Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue said he has to "do a better job" of getting Kevin Love involved in the offense a little more.

"When we're playing slow and we're not moving the basketball and we're not moving bodies, he really doesn't benefit," Lue said. "We've got to do a better job getting Kevin more involved." LeBron James made similar comments about Love, and the team seems committed on getting him going early and often. He's still adjusting to his new role at center and he had a quiet opening night with 15 points, 11 rebounds and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes, but the big lines are coming.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, JaMychal Green (ankle) is expected to miss several weeks.

Another report from TNT reporter David Aldridge indicated that Green will be out 3-4 weeks. AN MRI on his left ankle sprain came back clean, but he's still going to be out a while. With Green sidelined, Chandler Parsons will have to play more four, while Jarell Martin and Brandan Wright should both be more involved as well. In terms of fantasy pickups, most owners can probably use a wait-and-see approach.
Oct 19 - 12:22 PM

Kris Dunn (finger) had his stitches removed and could be cleared for live contact in 4-5 days according to Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg.

His initial timetable had him returning to the court in early November, so he has a chance to beat that. The Bulls probably want him to get in a couple practices before returning to game action, so Jerian Grant still has a chance to run away with the starting job.

Jeremy Lin (knee) suffered a patellar tendon rupture on Wednesday and will miss the rest of season according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Nets confirmed this reports just a few minutes after. This is a huge loss for Brooklyn and it robs NBA fans of the chance to see their dynamic backcourt pairing of Lin and D'Angelo Russell. Lin has a player option for $12.5 million next season, so it's going to be hard for him to turn that down. He should make a full recovery and will hopefully be ready to roll in 2018-19. With Lin out, Russell will take on most of the ball-handling responsibilities, while Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie will get a bump as well. Isaiah Whitehead could also get a chance to earn a rotation spot. Get well soon, Lin.
