Metta World Peace intends to change his name to "The Panda's Friend" in honor of his move to China.

World Peace plans to name himself after China's giant panda and recently posted on his Chinese Twitter-like Sina Weibor feed, "New Chinese name coming soon. You guys are going to love it!" The soon-to-be Panda Friend became the Chinese Basketball Association's highest-paid import player when he signed a one-year, $1.43 million with the Sichuan Blue Whales, but doesn't hold any fantasy value outside of leagues that award points-per name-change bonuses.

X-rays were negative on Michael Beasley (ankle) and he will not return on Thursday.

He needed some help to the locker room after he landed on Russell Westbrook's foot. Based on how he couldn't put weight on his foot, he could miss time going forward. We'll see some more Doug McDermott, Courtney Lee, Kyle O'Quinn and maybe Lance Thomas tonight. There isn't really an add to make here for fantasy owners.

Milos Teodosic is expected to start next to Pat Beverley against the Lakers on Thursday.

Giddy up. Teodosic looked outstanding in the first unit during the preseason, especially with pick-and-roll plays. He can dime with the best of them and he's a solid shooter from deep, so it makes sense to add him just about everywhere.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) and Zach Randolph (oral surgery) are questionable to face the Mavs on Friday.

It's a good sign to see he is questionable, but the Kings did originally list him as questionable before he was ruled out for Wednesday. If he can't go Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson should get a few extra minutes.
Oct 19 - 8:13 PM

Ramon Sessions, Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Kristaps Porzingis and Enes Kanter will start against the Thunder on Thursday.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he liked Lee at the three and he'll start him off against Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. Lee is usually a high-floor guy in fantasy, so he could be worth owning, especially in deep leagues.
Oct 19 - 7:28 PM

Norman Powell will start against the Bulls on Thursday.

He will be the 14th different starting small forward for the Raptors on opening night in the last 15 years. Powell reportedly worked very hard on his 3-point shooting and the Raptors are expected to put an emphasis on long distance shooting, so Powell could be firing away on top of his drives. He should be owned in most standard leagues.

Aaron Gordon (sore left ankle) is questionable to face the Nets on Friday.

We didn't notice him go to the locker room, he played 34 minutes, and he played the final six minutes of Wednesday's game. Hopefully, he'll wake up and feel better tomorrow because he would get a dream matchup against the Nets defense. He didn't shoot the ball well in the first game on Wednesday, but he was aggressive and most signs point to a big year coming.

Andre Iguodala (back) and Omri Casspi (ankle) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Friday.

Iguodala revealed he hurt his back in the weight room, but he did go through practice on Wednesday. Even if Casspi, Iggy and Draymond Green (knee) can't go, the Warriors still have enough depth and it's not like they're worried about their 0-1 start. If they are missing those guys, it should be more Nick Young, Pat McCaw and Jordan Bell.

Coach Mike Malone said Jamal Murray won the starting job because of how he fits with the starters.

"It wasn't so much that Jamal blew everybody out of the water," Malone added. It was a quiet night for Murray with just eight points, two boards, two assists and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes, and perhaps the worse part is how much Gary Harris handled the ball. In fact. Malone used a backcourt combo with Harris and Will Barton for a whopping 11 minutes, so that's something to watch. This game was against the Jazz and Murray fits this potent offense very well, so his fantasy owners should give him a fairly long leash.
Oct 19 - 5:05 PM

Zach Collins (illness) is probable to play against the Pacers on Friday.

With Al-Farouq Aminu playing 100 percent of his minutes at power forward and Caleb Swanigan not playing next to Jusuf Nurkic at all on Wednesday, we'll likely have a position battle on our hands for the backup four. Coach Terry Stotts said Collins should play the all power forward, so it'll likely be Biggie or Collins getting a rotation spot.
Oct 19 - 4:57 PM

Caris LeVert said growing with D'Angelo Russell will be important for the them, the team and the organization.

Sadly, the two will have to grow together more than anticipated because of the sad news on Jeremy Lin. In the last five minutes on Wednesday, coach Kenny Atkinson only used one lineup: Russell, Caris LeVert, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll and Trevor Booker. While it's unclear who will get the starting job, both LeVert and Crabbe are expected to get more minutes and should be owned in standard leagues.
Oct 19 - 4:53 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he didn't go into Wednesday's game with a plan on using Eric Moreland over Boban Marjanovic.

In case you missed it, Boban was a DNP-CD against the Hornets while Moreland logged 12 minutes. Maybe it was because Dwight Howard played well against Boban in the preseason or maybe it's because SVG was scared to use him in pick-and-roll sets. For what it's worth, Kemba Walker leads all NBA players in pick-and-roll possessions including passes (Synergy), so clearly the Hornets were leaning on that play. Whatever the case, this is a big blow to Boban supporters and he'll be dropped all over the place with another DNP-CD on Friday. It's against the Knicks, so that would be even worse.
