Jerryd Bayless will shift into the Sixers' starting lineup on Thursday.

Dario Saric (eye) is out tonight and Philly is going with Bayless alongside J.J. Redick, Robert Covington, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. They will have T.J. McConnell (shoulder) available tonight, however, so Bayless doesn't have much upside even as a streaming option.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets are expected to bring Carmelo Anthony off the bench this season.

Wojnarowski reported earlier this morning that Melo will be signing a one-year, $2.4M deal and he put pen to paper on Monday afternoon. Carmelo was adamant about starting in OKC, so it'll be interesting to see if he embraces his new role in Houston. The Rockets led the league in uncontested 3-pointers in 2017-18 and Melo hit 37.3 percent of his catch-and-shoot triples, so it's definitely possible that this move works out for him.

Michael Porter Jr. (back surgery) said he's pain-free and "hoping to be back for the beginning of the year."

It's great to hear that his recovery is going well, but this seems overly optimistic. Porter Jr. also conceded that his rehab has been "very conservative ... [the Nuggets] are really taking it easy with me." Denver has lofty postseason aspirations and will play it extremely safe with their lottery pick's surgically-repaired back, so we're still not expecting Porter Jr. to be worth the risk in re-draft leagues.

The Cavaliers and Isaiah Taylor have agreed to a one-year deal, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

The Hawks waived him at the end of June, and he actually moves to a team with less competition. Taylor still has to make the roster and there's no word of guarantees on his deal just yet.

Jon Leuer underwent right knee surgery on Thursday due to an injury that occurred during an offseason workout earlier in the week.

Poor kid can't catch a break. 2017-18 was a nightmare for Leuer, as he missed all but eight games due to a variety of injuries, including season-ending ankle surgery in January. It's currently unknown if Leuer will be ready for training camp next month, but he is no longer on the fantasy radar.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been diagnosed with a left adductor strain.

Adductor strains typically impact the hip and thigh, and we should have more specifics soon -- RHJ injured himself during a recent exhibition game in China. He will begin rehab "immediately" and the Nets haven't provided a timetable for his return. They'll take every precaution with him, but for now we'll tentatively expect him to be ready for training camp.

The Knicks remain "unlikely to reincorporate" Joakim Noah into the team, according to ESPN.com's Ian Begley and Adrian Wojnarowski.

The report adds assuming general manager Scott Perry continues to be unable to find a trade that includes Noah, the Knicks will use the NBA's waive-and-stretch provision to release Noah sometime after Sep. 1. Noah still has two years and $37.8 million left on his deal, and clearly the Knicks can't find a deal involving the 33-year-old big man.

Rajon Rondo said he would accept a reserve role with the Lakers this upcoming season.

"Whatever they ask me, you know, my main objective is to win," Rondo said. "I'm ready to help develop Lonzo [Ball] as much as possible. If I'm not starting and he's starting, he's going to be ready to go and ready for anybody that comes his way. And we'll be ready to roll." Rondo will be competing for the starting spot at camp, but it sounds like he'll be fine with whatever plays out. Unfortunately, the addition of Rondo could spell a value-killing, timeshare situation in fantasy hoops.

Jahlil Okafor has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Pelicans.

Okafor's new contract with New Orleans is reportedly a two-year, partially guaranteed deal, with a team option on Year-2. The former No. 3 overall pick has a ton to prove after not being able to get into the rotation in Brooklyn last season, but with the Pelicans having a need for depth at center and room on the roster, this is a great landing spot for Okafor. We'll be watching how his role develops at camp, but even in an ideal situation, he probably won't be much more than a late-round guy.

Christmas Day NBA games will feature the Celtics vs. the Sixers, the Bucks vs. the Knicks at the Garden, and, of course, LeBron James' Lakers at Oakland to face the Warriors. The Blazers will also visit the Jazz on Dec. 25.

The new NBA schedule officially comes out on Wednesday at 2 p.m., but Marc Stein has the inside scoop on Christmas Day. The Knicks are going to be pretty bad, but the NBA tradition of featuring them in the Garden on Christmas Day will continue on.

Carmelo Anthony has verbally agreed to sign with the Rockets, according to sources of Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Anthony cleared waivers last week but hasn't officially been able to put pen to paper a new deal as he's been touring Africa with the NBA Players Association. Melo verbally committing to Houston essentially makes this a done deal, and things should become officially shortly after he returns to the states. Anthony struggled as a third-option in OKC last season, so it'll be interesting to see how he meshes in Houston. We're not very high on him in fantasy hoops.

An MRI has reportedly revealed a Jones fracture in Zhaire Smith's left foot and he's expected to undergo surgery.

Smith suffered the injury during a developmental camp for NBA players in Las Vegas on Monday, and with training camp right around the corner, this is terrible timing for Philly's No. 16 pick. A Jones fracture is a tricky injury that typically involves a lengthy recovery time, and if does indeed elect to go under the knife to correct this issue, that could do it for his rookie season. He'll meet with a foot specialist later this week to get a second opinion, but for now, he's completely off the radar in all re-draft formats.
