Latest Headlines

Gregg Popovich said that Kawhi Leonard (quad) will be back "sooner rather than later."

Unfortunately, Popovich immediately followed up that statement by saying "what the hell does that mean?" so we're still a bit in the dark about when we can anticipate the former Finals MVP to make his way back to the court. Popovich has also implied during a recent interview that Leonard was behind Tony Parker (quad) in the rehab process, and with Parker not expected back until December, we shouldn't anticipate Kawhi returning to action this month.

According to Royce Young of ESPN, Russell Westbrook (right knee) is working Friday afternoon and the Thunder are waiting to see how he responds before determining whether to play Friday night vs. the Clippers.

Westbrook, who is rehabbing from offseason surgery, sat out Tuesday's regular season opener vs. Golden State. Dennis Schroder started in place of Russ on Tuesday and hit 7-of-19 shots, 2-of-6 3-pointers and 5-of-6 free throws for 21 points, a career-high nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 34 minutes. If Westbrook misses another game, Schroder will draw another start. We should have an update on this situation shortly. Stay tuned.

Kris Dunn (personal) has not yet rejoined the Bulls and his status for Saturday's game vs. Detroit is undetermined.

Marc Gasol (back soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

Gasol landed awkwardly in the second quarter of the Grizzlies' season-opener on Wednesday, but did return the contest, logging 30 minutes and finishing with 13 points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers. This is the first update on his condition since Wednesday night and it's obviously concerning. We should have a final update on his status when coach J.B. Bickerstaff addresses the media pregame at approximately 6:15 pm EST. Memphis has very little depth behind Gasol. Jaren Jackson Jr. would likely be a primary beneficiary. Ivan Rabb, who did not play at all on Wednesday, would see a significant uptick in playing time.

Coach Rick Carlise said that Harrison Barnes (strained right hamstring) practiced on Friday but is "unlikely" to play Saturday vs. Minnesota.

Barnes has been making steady progress, as evidenced by the fact that he is practicing with the team, but hamstring injuries can linger for a long time if they are not allowed to heal completely. Thus, it's understandable that the Mavs want to err on the side of caution with Barnes. We should have an update on his status following Saturday morning's shootaround. Dorian Finney-Smith started for Dallas on Wednesday, finishing with 12 points and three rebounds in 30 minutes.

OG Anunoby (right orbital contusion) will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

OG left Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers after getting hit in the face and did not return. However, he was expected to be cleared for Friday as he was a full participant at Thursday's practice with coach Nick Nurse saying he was "fine."

Rockets GM Daryl Morey announced on Friday that Brandon Knight (left knee rehab) is still without a timetable for his return.

Per the Rockets, Knight is still rehabilitating his left knee following an offseason procedure to accelerate recovery from his previous surgery. Knight has been working daily with the Houston medical staff, and the staff will establish a timeline for his return in the future. Knight belongs on the waiver wire in all fantasy formats.

Damian Lillard scored 28 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Lakers during a 128-119 win on Thursday.

He spent a good amount of time in the preseason saying he was going to play off the ball, but that didn't happen. Plus, Dame played 100 percent of his preseason minutes next to C.J. McCollum, but his minute pattern looked awfully similar. He played 31 of his 35 minutes next to McCollum in this game, and it looks like coach Terry Stotts is going to allow his second unit contribute more in running the O. All this aside, Dame is locked and loaded as a top-10 player.

Zach Collins swatted six shots against the Lakers on Thursday, adding six points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

Coach Terry Stotts was very shy about playing Collins at the five in the preseason, but not this time as he protected the rim as the Lakers kept looking for layups. The Blazers let Ed Davis walk in hopes Collins could take a step forward in his sophomore season, and they're undoubtedly pleased with his season debut tonight. He'll likely have a bumpy ride this season, but his blocking upside puts him on the radar in competitive leagues.

Nik Stauskas caught fire in the first half and closed in the fourth against the Lakers on Thursday, scoring 24 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

Sauce Castillo hit four 3-pointers in the first half and his strong play gave coach Terry Stotts the confidence to use him down the stretch. It's not going to be easy for Stauskas to get minutes consistently because he is likely going to backup C.J. McCollum, and Moe Harkless should start to see more minutes at the three, too. For now, he's really only worth an add if you're dropping dead weight.

LeBron James scored 26 points in a 128-119 loss to the Blazers on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, six assists, one steal, six turnovers and no 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

The big story for the Lakers today was missing the first 15 attempts from deep, and secondly the preseason pace talk also came to fruition with a 111.8 pace in this loss. Thanks to some dunks, LeBron scored 13 points in the first quarter for his highest opening quarter since his rookie season. If LeBron plays 37 minutes per game at this pace, he'll be hanging some massive stat lines all season. He'll look for his first Laker win against the Rockets on Saturday.
Oct 19 - 1:36 AM

Josh Hart scored 20 points with four rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He's good and that red-hot run in Las Vegas was no fluke. The Lakers do not have enough shooters around LeBron James and it's making more sense to elevate Hart to the starting lineup. Hart has shown he's capable of adding stats in any column, the Lakers pace suits him remarkably well, and he did get most of the minutes down the stretch. Hart should be owned in all leagues.
