Isaiah Thomas (right hip) will not return to Friday's game against the Cavs.

He was limping at the end of the first half and the team is calling it a right hip strain. The Celtics were dominated 72-31 for the biggest halftime deficit in the history of the NBA playoffs, so there's no reason to bring IT back. He was terrible in this game, scoring just two points in 18 minutes. Marcus Smart started the third quarter for Thomas.

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.

Goran Dragic powered Slovenia to a 93-85 win over Serbia in the EuroBasket championship game on Sunday, erupting for 35 points on 12-of-22 shooting and taking home MVP honors.

Dragic added seven boards, three triples, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in his 29 minutes of floor time, and simply put, he was too much to handle for Team Serbia. He'll end his EuroBasket career on a high note, bringing home the gold for Team Slovenia for the first time in EuroBasket history, and setting the single-game scoring record for the Slovenian national team. Dragic will come into Miami's training camp in tip-top shape, and he shouldn't have any trouble at all contributing top-50 value in his 10th NBA season. For what it's worth, he did sit out the fourth quarter due to cramps, but that won't be an issue that affects him at camp.
Sep 17 - 4:50 PM

Jason Terry has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks.

The Bucks surprisingly got 74 games out of Terry last season, averaging 4.1 points per game. Terry turned 40 years old today, so the Bucks are counting on him more for his veteran leadership than his play.
Sep 15 - 6:22 PM

Boban Marjanovic did his thing once again during a win over Russia on Friday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

Not a bad line in just 20 minutes. Marjanovic created a lot of buzz in his final four games of the season last year, averaging 15.8 points, 10.3 boards, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 steals in 23.0 minutes per game. Coach Stan Van Gundy has said he's going to play Boban this year, so he's instantly on the map in all leagues as a later round pick. Serbia takes on Slovenia for the EuroBasket crown on Sunday. Unleash the Boban.
