Latest Headlines

Caris LeVert (left groin strain) will not play Wednesday vs. Minnesota, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

This will be the first game of the season LeVert has missed. It's unfortunate timing, as LeVert has been on fire recently. He was averaging 16.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists over the Nets last four games. Allen Crabbe, Joe Harris, and Nik Stauskas will likely divvy up excess minutes with LeVert out of the lineup.

Denzel Valentine (left ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's regular-season opener against the 76ers.

Valentine still hasn't been able to go through a full practice, so until that happens, we don't expect to see him on the court. Justin Holiday should get all the run he can handle with Valentine unavailable, and Antonio Blakeney might be able to get into the rotation. Valentine belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Kris Dunn (personal) will not suit up for Thursday's season opener against the 76ers, and Cameron Payne will draw the start in his place.

It's unclear exactly why Dunn will be away from the team tonight, but hopefully, he'll be able to get back in time for Saturday's game against the Pistons. Cameron Payne can be hit-or-miss, but he should be looking at quality minutes tonight, which puts him on the radar as a potential punt play in DFS. Tyler Ulis or Ryan Arcidiacono should also see minutes tonight with Dunn unavailable.

Trade talks involving Jimmy Butler have gone "dormant," according to sources of Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Butler remains adamant that he'd like to be traded, and Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has said on numerous occasions that he'll honor that request, but some GMs around the league have questioned whether or not Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden are truly interested in getting a deal done. Trading a player of Butler's caliber is a complicated process, so this is something that could certainly drag out all the way until the trade deadline.

Tobias Harris scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes during a 107-98 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Those three blocks match his career high. Coach Doc Rivers has said he could see Tobias having a career year, and it'll help if Harris is going to get 41 minutes in games. Harris has been about as solid as it gets over the years, and now he'll have added upside as he logs minutes next to low-usage players. He should be in line for early-round fantasy production and the added durability makes him a strong fantasy asset.

Devin Booker made 12-of-19 from the field for 35 points during a 121-100 win over the Mavs on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, seven assists and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

What hand injury? Booker caught fire in the fourth quarter as he led the Suns to 38 points, including 19 points on 133.3 eFG% in those eight minutes. Most importantly in the fourth, Booker was the point guard as he ran the two-man game with Deandre Ayton. He keeps adding more to his game every year and this could be the year he puts it all together now that he has his man in the middle in Ayton. Booker should be among the league leaders in scoring and offers massive upside every night.

Deandre Ayton was outstanding in his debut against the Mavs on Wednesday, making 8-of-11 from the field and both free throws for 18 points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers.

No 3-pointers, Mr. Ayton? What a monster eight-cat line from the No. 1 pick. It really couldn't have gone much better with Ayton finding open teammates and showing some soft touch on his shooting. He's already one of the biggest centers in the NBA and he made short work of DeAndre Jordan in several sets. If you reached for Ayton in the third or fourth round, there's nothing like instant gratification in fantasy. It's one game, but he looks like he'll be the real deal for a long time.
Oct 18 - 2:19 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 21 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He looked like a star player with some Euro-step drives and dishing to his teammates in a variety of sets. Ariza was brought in on a one-year deal to show the young Suns how to play on the perimeter in the NBA, and for now it looks like he's going to get heavy burn until the Suns start to fall out of it. He has to be owned everywhere.
Oct 18 - 2:10 AM

De'Aaron Fox dished out seven assists on Wednesday, adding 21 points, four rebounds and three steals in 38 minutes.

We're hoping for a second-year breakout from Fox and he took a step in that direction with 8-of-16 made field goals against a stingy Jazz team tonight. He peaked at 44.2% shooting as a rookie (in March) and finished at 41.2%, so we can overlook tonight's 0-of-2 mark from deep and 5-of-7 mark at the line. Frank Mason was limited to a mere five minutes, too, which insulates Fox from any position-battle concerns.
Oct 18 - 2:04 AM

Josh Jackson scored 18 points with two rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes off the bench against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He made 3-of-4 from deep and had a few jumpers inside the arc. Jackson struggled mightily on jumpers in Vegas and in the preseason, so we're not going to by this output yet. However, we are buying the minutes with Jackson closing at shooting guard next to Devin Booker at the point. He will find a way to score in the teens and should add defensives stats, so he should be owned in all leagues.
Oct 18 - 2:00 AM

Ricky Rubio finished Wednesday's game with one point, four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes of action, and he reportedly "jammed his thumb."

De'Aaron Fox ran wild vs. Utah tonight and Rubio was outplayed by Dante Exum, but the thumb issue is the headline for fantasy owners. He was already expected to spend more time off the ball, and that's not ideal for a career 38.5% shooter whose 41.8% last season was a personal best. Rubio has too much proven mid-round upside to fret about one poor game, assuming his 'jammed' thumb isn't a problem -- we'll start to worry if he's missing games and/or struggling after Halloween.
Oct 18 - 1:54 AM

Boban Marjanovic scored 18 points with eight rebounds and two turnovers in 18 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Before we freak out, let's remember that Boban has owned Denver multiple times, so that could have been a factor. OK. That enough to temper excitement? Good. Boban could be freed and Marcin Gortat has said that Boban could have a dominating role on the Clips. Plus, Montrezl Harrell also played the four as Boban outplayed Gortat easily. Boban's upside is just too high to leave on the waiver wire after a game like this one. We'd suggest adding him now and figuring out the rest later. Maybe you will have to drop him the next time out, but it'll sting badly if he's for real and someone else gets to ride the Boban train. Free Boban.
