Josh Jackson will start in place of Devin Booker (thigh) on Thursday vs. Washington.

Bradley Beal is coming off a 51-point game and Jackson is Phoenix's best perimeter defender, so this move makes sense. Jackson has struggled with his shooting percentages, but he could be a nice source of hustle stats in the short term with Booker out a few weeks. Troy Daniels should also be more involved and we could see some two-PG lineups as well.

Caris LeVert hit a game-winning layup with 1.0 seconds left to beat the Knicks 107-105 on Friday, making 8-of-13 from the field for a career-high 28 points with six rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Welcome the LeVert Era Brooklyn Nets. He cleaned up a the line with a 10-of-11 performance from there and for the second straight game it's clear as day he is the best perimeter player on this team. LeVert is the first player in Nets franchise history with at least 27 points, four rebounds and four assists in each of the first two games of a season. In two games, he has a superstar-like 29.8 usage rate and a 69.9 TS% to give him incredible efficiency to go with these stat-stuffing games. Sure, it's only two games, but all LeVert owners can pat themselves on the back because he looks like he's going to be a fantasy star this season.

Nikola Mirotic scored a career-high 36 points in Friday's 149-129 thrashing of the Kings, hitting 14-of-21 shots, 5-of-9 triples and 3-of-6 free throws.

What a way to answer his 30-point, 10-rebound season opener. Mirotic also pulled down nine rebounds with a pair of assists, helping New Orleans crush their franchise-record for points in regulation (previous: 139). That's also the most points any NBA team has scored in regulation since Phoenix in 2010 (152). The addition of Julius Randle hasn't hurt Mirotic at all with the Pelicans using a three-man rotation up front, and all signs continue to point to a monster year.

Anthony Davis was dominant in Friday's win over the Kings, scoring 25 points with 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and a triple.

He took an early seat after 27 minutes because of the lopsided score, finishing 8-of-12 from the field and 8-of-12 from the line. AD's assists (14 combined over first two games) have been a nice surprise, so the most unfair player in fantasy basketball may have just taken his game to the next level. If he stays healthy, it would be a huge upset if he's not the No. 1 ranked player in fantasy when all is said and done.

Jarrett Allen had another outstanding game on Friday, scoring 15 points with 11 rebounds and four blocks in 34 minute against the Knicks.

He's a special talent and all those preseason concerns have been put to bed so far. Allen joined elite company today to become the first player since Tim Duncan (2003-04 season) to register a double-double and four blocks in each of the first two games of a season. He's an equal-opportunity blocker and his growth as an offensive weapon is beyond even the wildest of expectations. Allen looks like he's well on his way to early-round value in standard leagues as he makes a case for Most Improved Player.

Tim Hardaway Jr. made 10-of-25 from the field for 29 points with two rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Nets during a 107-105 loss on Friday.

He got the last shot at the buzz, but he couldn't get the deep three to go down. It's bombs away for THJ with 22 shots from the field in the opener and another game with massive usage tonight. With Frank Ntilikina basically being more of a defensive contributor and the Knicks starting Lance Thomas, there will be a litany of shots available for THJ in this first unit. He'll have his slumps, but Hardaway Jr. should have a shot at scoring in the 20s this season.

JaMychal Green (mouth) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

He took a shot to the mouth and will need some dental work. Green was able to play through some left knee soreness before that, finishing with six points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 14 minutes. Jaren Jackson Jr. is putting on a show right now and should get extended run in the fourth.
Oct 19 - 10:04 PM

Kemba Walker got it going after a tough start during a 120-88 win over the Magic on Friday night, scoring 26 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

After his seven-trey Wednesday, he tied Ray Allen for the most 3-pointers to start a season with 12, and Walker only had two points in the first before he busted out for 24 in the second and third quarters. Plus, all the stats are saying he has an All-Star season in the making. On the 11-game Wednesday, Walker led all players in touch time, passes received, drives to the basket, and he has a 33.9 usage rate on the season. If you drafted Kemba in the second round, things are looking great in this new offense.
Oct 19 - 9:37 PM

Updating a previous item, J.R. Smith (elbow) is available to play against the Wolves on Friday, but he is not expected to play.

The lineup sheet had him as inactive, but it was apparently wrong. This doesn't mean he'll necessarily play after missing the opener, but downgrade Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson for now.
Oct 19 - 7:49 PM

JaMychal Green (left knee soreness) is starting on Friday vs. the Hawks.

He was listed as probable on the previous injury report, and he also battled through a shoulder tweak earlier in the week. Green may not be 100 percent and Jaren Jackson Jr. is going to push for his minutes, but he's in a great spot to produce tonight against one of the worst teams in the NBA.
Oct 19 - 7:48 PM

Marc Gasol (back) will start on Friday night against the Hawks.

He was a game-time call and apparently everything in warmups went well today. Gasol could be less than 100 percent and the early-season injury will be something to keep an eye on. For now, Jaren Jackson Jr. should still be viewed as a player who should trend up in the near future.
Oct 19 - 7:43 PM

De'Aaron Fox, Yogi Ferrell, Buddy Hield, Nemanja Bjelica and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

It's the Kings listing starters and they're about as reliable as cell service on a desert island. This is the group that started in the opener, so maybe they will go with it. Maybe they won't. Bjelica did play well with 18 points in the opener, so he could be a nice short-term add.
