Trevor Booker has been traded to the Sixers in a deal sending Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick to Brooklyn.

Booker should immediately give Philly's second unit a boost defensively and on the glass, and he's no slouch offensively, but it's doubtful he'll get enough minutes to help fantasy owners. Dario Saric has been playing well at PF and that should continue with Ben Simmons at PG and Markelle Fultz (shoulder) lacking a clear return date. Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes will feel the pinch even more as they fight for backup-center minutes.

Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Ayton rolled his ankle at practice on Thursday and was initially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He looked fantastic in his pro debut, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers. He'll look to carry that momentum into Saturday's contest vs. the Nuggets.

Gordon Hayward (left ankle recovery) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

The is the second night of a back-to-back for Boston, so the Celtics will give Hayward the night off. He has played 24 minutes in each of the C's first two games, averaging 12.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals, as he works his way back from his gruesome lower leg injury suffered on opening night last season. He's been rusty, but the good news is that Hayward has not had any setbacks as he returned to game action this week. The Celtics will likely spread Hayward's minutes fairly evenly across their deep bench.

Kawhi Leonard (rest) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

Kawhi has looked fantastic early on this season, averaging 27.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over the Raptors first two games. However, it's important to remember he only played nine games last season due to a debilitating quad injury. Saturday is the back end of a back-to-back, and the third game in four nights for the Raps. Leonard played over 35 minutes in each of the first two contests. Toronto is understandably erring on the side of caution. OG Anunoby and Norman Powell will likely soak up extra minutes Saturday in D.C.
Oct 20 - 1:22 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Denzel Valentine (left ankle) is out at least two more weeks.

Valentine initially hurt his left ankle back in late September and has not been able to shake the injury. If you are still rostering him, he can be dropped for a hot pickup, especially in leagues that don't have an IR spot. Justin Holiday and Antonio Blakeney both logged 27-plus minutes in the Bulls season-opener on Thursday and should continue to soak up extra playing time.
Oct 20 - 1:01 PM

Kris Dunn (personal) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pistons but will rejoin the team for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

Dunn is on the east coast with his family following the birth of his son. The good news is that he will make his season debut on Monday night. Cameron Payne will start Saturday vs. Detroit. Payne also started Thursday's game but logged just 21 minutes. Ryan Arcidiacono played 28 minutes off the bench.
Oct 20 - 12:54 PM

Domantas Sabonis (bruised right knee) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Sabonis must have injured himself in the Pacers victory on Friday night. He didn't appear limited, as he tallied 12 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 22 minutes against the Bucks. If Sabonis is unable to play on Saturday, Thad Young, Myles Turner and Kyle O'Quinn would likely divvy up the vacated minutes.
Oct 20 - 12:44 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (personal, groin) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pacers.

RHJ has been dealing with a nagging groin injury since early October. Also, his wife gave birth to a baby boy on Friday. We should have an update on his status soon. The Nets don't play again until Wednesday, so there's a chance he makes his season debut at Cleveland. Jared Dudley and Rodions Kurucs are expected to again soak up extra playing time Saturday vs. the Pacers.

Harrison Barnes (strained right hamstring) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. Atlanta.

Speaking with reporters yesterday, Coach Rick Carlise said that although Barnes practiced on Friday, he was "unlikely" to play Saturday night. However, it appears Barnes will be cleared to make his season debut Monday vs. Chicago. Dorian Finney-Smith will likely draw another start for the Mavs on Saturday.
Oct 20 - 12:10 PM

Reggie Bullock (illness) and Stanley Johnson (toe) will both start Saturday night vs. the Bulls.

This news was expected, as Bullock returned to practice on Friday. With Bullock and Johnson returning to the starting lineup, Luke Kennard and Bruce Brown will be bumped back to the bench. Over his final 30 games of the 2017-18 season, Bullock averaged 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.6 treys. He could be worth a roster spot in deep leagues if can stay healthy and build off that momentum from last season.
Oct 20 - 12:08 PM

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Wayne Ellington (left ankle) went through shootaround Saturday morning but won't play Saturday vs. Charlotte.

Per the Heat's PR staff, Ellington will be will be active but is doubtful to play. Spoelstra said that he wants Ellington and Justise Winslow (hamstring) to get in a full practice before playing in a game. "They’re making a lot of progress. It just makes more sense to wait," said Coach Spo. Josh Richardson has been a beast early on this season and will continue to eat. Derrick Jones Jr. and Rodney McGruder will also soak up extra minutes.
Oct 20 - 11:51 AM

John Wall sat out of Saturday's shootaround due to migraines, but is expected to play Saturday night vs. the Raptors.

Wall has dealt with migraines throughout his career, having missed many practices and shootarounds. However, he typically is able to suit up and play come game time. We should have an update from coach Scott Brooks when Brooks speaks with the media at approximately 5:45 pm. If Wall is ruled out, Tomas Satoransky would draw the start and would be a very popular DFS play.
