Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Trevor Booker will start vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

Dinwiddie was the suspected D'Angelo Russell replacement, but it's interesting that Booker will be replacing Timofey Mozgov in the starting five tonight. As for Dinwiddie, he's played well in limited minutes (22.3) this season with averages of 9.8 points, 4.9 dimes, 1.5 triples and just 1.1 turnovers per contest, so he's certainly someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues.

Jayson Tatum put on a show in Boston's 105-87 opening-night win over Philly, scoring 23 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one triple in 29 minutes.

He picked up right where he left off as a rookie. Tatum scored nine of Boston's first 11 points, finishing 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Kyrie Irving's jumper wasn't working, so Tatum was the clear focal point of the offense. That's not going to be the case every night on one of the NBA's deepest teams, but this game was super encouraging and it looks like Tatum has taken another leap as a player. He's a superstar in the making.

Terrance Ferguson will start at shooting guard for the Thunder on opening night against the Warriors.

The Thunder will also start Dennis Schroder at PG guard (Russell Westbrook (knee) is out), Paul George at SF, Patrick Patterson at PF and Steven Adams at C. Ferguson was iffy with a concussion, but he's ready to go. Eventually, the Thunder will start Westbrook and (probably) Andre Roberson in the backcourt, but for now, Schroder has potential to be a beast, while Ferguson is worth keeping a close eye on tonight.

Steven Adams (lower back stiffness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

He was a true game-time call with coach Billy Donovan being non-committal on his status two separate times. Whether or not Adams is limited remains to be seen, but season-long owners should roll the dice on him in weekly lineups. If you picked up Nerlens Noel, it's not a bad idea to hold onto him until we see how Adams looks.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) is officially being listed as questionable for Wednesday's season opener against the Pistons.

RHJ missed the entire preseason with the groin issue, but he's been a full participant at recent practices, which is a positive sign regarding his status for opening night. The Nets will re-evaluate him after shootaround, so we should get official word by Wednesday afternoon. Stay tuned.
Oct 16 - 6:43 PM

Gordon Hayward will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Joining Hayward in the starting five will be Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford, which is the same starting lineup they opened with last year. Hayward will be limited to 25-30 minutes for the first few weeks of the season, but that's still plenty of time for him to contribute meaningful stat lines. Go ahead and get him active.
Oct 16 - 6:23 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle), Justin Anderson (tibia) and John Collins (ankle) will not suit up for Wednesday's season opener against the Knicks.

With both Dedmon and Collins unavailable on Wednesday night, Omari Spellman could be looking at a start and Alex Len (back) should see extended minutes. Dedmon has been ramping up his activities, but the Hawks won't be in any rush to bring him back. If Len continues to play well, Dedmon might not be able to retake his spot in the starting lineup.
Oct 16 - 5:51 PM

Larry Nance (right ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's season opener against the Raptors.

Nance said he's been making solid progress, but his ankle is still black and blue, so there's a good chance we won't see him take the floor tomorrow night. Tristan Thompson will get the start at center, and he'll see an uptick in minutes if Nance can't give it a go. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Oct 16 - 5:18 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is expected to start at shooting guard in Thursday's season opener against the Trail Blazers.

KCP was again a full participant at Tuesday's practice, marking the second day in a row he went through a full practice, so it looks like he's moved on from the minor knee issue. Luke Walton won't confirm his starting lineup until Thursday, but Caldwell-Pope again scrimmaged alongside Rajon Rondo, Brandon Ingram, LeBron James and JaVale McGee, and it would seem that will be the starting lineup vs. Portland.

Isaiah Canaan said he's expecting to start at point guard in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks.

"As of right now, that’s what it’s looking like," said Canaan when asked if he expects to start on Wednesday. "I’m really looking forward to that and just going out there and trying to do whatever I can to help the team win." If Canaan does indeed start at the point, that would mean that Devin Booker would start at the two, which could shift Josh Jackson into a reserve role at the three-spot. Canaan might be worth a flier in deep leagues, but his season-long outlook isn't great.
Oct 16 - 4:15 PM

Devin Booker (right hand) isn't worried about taking hits to his surgically repaired right hand in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks.

"I’ve taken plenty of hits in practice now, and now I trust it and believe that it’s ready to go for full contact [in a game]," said Booker. "That’s what I’ve been doing the past week." We're expecting the fourth-year guard to take another major leap forward in his age-22 season, and we don't anticipate the hand issue re-emerging.
Oct 16 - 4:12 PM

Lance Thomas (hip) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

He did not participate at Monday's practice, but that was merely a precautionary move, so he'll be good to go for Wednesday's season opener against the Hawks. Thomas is going to start at power forward to begin the year, but his role will likely fade as we get further into the season.
