Jusuf Nurkic scored 12 points with six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 18 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

He showed a lot of confidence in his jumper and even attempted two treys. Nurkic lost 35 pounds and did a terrific job moving in transition tonight, and the Blazers were not shy about getting the ball to him in the paint. It's worth a mention he did suffer a right leg contusion, but he looked fine and started the second half. If Nurkic can shake his injury concerns, he could have a big year in his first full go 'round as a Blazer.

Dwight Howard (back) is considered day-to-day.

Already? Coach Scott Brooks doesn't believe it's serious and said it's just sore, but any time we see a back issue for Dwight it's a cause for concern. If Howard can't stay healthy this season, we could get a look at intriguing second-year center Thomas Bryant.

Hornets coach James Borrego confirmed that Nicolas Batum will play mostly small forward this season.

This is Batum's natural position after logging a ton of minutes at SG last season. Injuries and a poor shooting percentage from the field have cooled Batum's fantasy value in recent years, but his all-around counting stats should be solid on a team that wants to pick up the pace this season. With Batum penciled in as the starting SF, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is in danger of losing a lot of minutes and Jeremy Lamb is still the favorite to start alongside Batum.

James Johnson still isn't 100 percent after undergoing offseason hernia surgery.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Johnson is "close," but the Heat are going to play it safe in camp from what it sounds like. Johnson is a bounce-back candidate in the late rounds of drafts after battling through this injury for most of the season -- he's a year removed from putting up 12.8 points and 4.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 blocks.

Kawhi Leonard is "all systems go" for training camp.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse also said he doesn't think Leonard's health will be an issue this season. "Not from what I've seen, at all," Nurse said. "But a guy that hasn't played that much [over the last year], we're going to monitor it." All eyes are going to be on him in the preseason to see if the quad issue is truly behind him.

The Heat have been "very reluctant" to discuss Josh Richardson or Bam Adebayo in any potential deals this summer.

The Heat have reportedly been aggressive on the Jimmy Butler front, but it's unclear if they'd be willing to include Richardson in a deal for a guy who could leave as a free agent in 2019. Miami has been shopping Hassan Whiteside, Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson all summer long, but it will take more than that to nab a guy like Butler.

The Heat have reportedly been "aggressive" in their pursuit of Jimmy Butler.

Miami wasn't one of the squads that Butler named as a team he'd be interested in signing an extension with, but Pat Riley appears willing to take the risk, as a talent like Butler would immediately catapult the Heat into contender status out East. He'd also have a full year to sell Butler on Miami's culture, and Erik Spoelstra's hard-nosed, defense-first approach would likely jive with what Butler is looking for. Ultimately, whoever presents the most attractive package to Scott Layden and Tom Thibodeau will be the winners of the Butler sweepstakes, and Miami is just one of many names to be in the mix thus far.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavaliers could make a push for Jimmy Butler.

Butler has now been linked to nearly half the league, but there doesn't appear to be a frontrunner just yet. It would make the most sense for the Clippers to make a push because they would still have the cap space to bring in Kawhi Leonard next summer. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert was seen talking privately with Wolves owner Glen Taylor at the NBA Board of Governors meeting on Friday, but Wojnarowski didn't mention any pieces that would be involved in a potential deal.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Wolves owner Glen Taylor "has mandated that a deal needs to be negotiated to trade disgruntled All-Star forward Jimmy Butler in the next several days."

Head coach Tom Thibodeau and GM Scott Layden have been opposed to moving Butler, but Taylor is taking matters into his own hands. He wants to get a deal done before the Wolves begin practicing on Tuesday, and while only a few teams have had serious conversations about a trade, Wojnarowski is reporting that Brooklyn, Detroit, Houston, the Clippers, Miami, Philadelphia and Portland are among the teams interested.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Joakim Noah and the Knicks are nearing an agreement on his waive and stretch.

Noah will not report to camp while the two sides finalize the details. Charania adds that Noah "has worked diligently this offseason" and that "several teams are monitoring his upcoming entrance in free agency." With Noah on the way out, Mitchell Robinson is the early favorite to back up Enes Kanter at center.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed at 242 pounds on the training camp roster.

That puts him nine pounds heavier than last year. If you've seen Giannis at all this offseason, you've probably noticed how ripped he looks. Antetokounmpo is still just 23 years old and it's hard to believe he could get even stronger. After a major leap forward last year, he could have an even bigger role with Jabari Parker out of the picture. He's locked in as a top-four pick.

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Wolves have agreed to a five-year, $190 million super-maximum extension, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

He's the toast of the Towns. In what has been a week of bad news in Minnesota, the Wolves finally lock up one of the best young players in the NBA. Despite some controversy, there was almost no doubt that the Wolves were going to sign Towns because it's almost impossible for KAT to turn down this type of money. Sure, he's been the most durable player in the NBA with his 82-82-82 games-played log per season, but now he has financial security for life. With Jimmy Butler headed out of town, KAT is likely set for a career year after he's improved his efficiency, free throw rate and several other stats in each of his three seasons. He's locked in as a top-two pick in fantasy leagues in basically all formats.
