Willie Cauley-Stein (lower back strain) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.

This is good news after the Kings have been ruling him out early since last week. Cauley-Stein has had back problems before and the Kings have little incentive to play him now. If he's back, that means either Kosta Koufos and/or Zach Randolph would be much more likely to sit.

According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, although Jimmy Butler "has serious questions about the direction of the franchise, he’s still willing to hear Minnesota out, and isn’t dead set on demanding a trade elsewhere."

It was initially reported that Butler planned to sit down with the Wolves on Monday, but Butler himself clarified that the meeting will take place on Tuesday. This could be a pivotal set of meetings that eventually determines the direction Minnesota is headed in for the 2018-19 season. Stay tuned, as we will provide updates as soon as they are made available.

Kyle Anderson said Mike Conley looked "good" and "game-ready" in a recent pickup game.

This is notable because it's the first confirmed report of Conley playing with contact since his surgery back in January. He's played 70 or fewer games in four straight seasons which has pushed his ADP to the middle rounds, but he does have a lot of appeal as a bounce-back candidate if the uncertainty in Memphis doesn't scare you.

Frank Ntilikina has added 10-15 pounds to his frame this offseason.

Coach David Fizdale was asked about his position, but said he envisions using him all over the floor. "You know I’m not going to give [Frank] a position. You have multiple players that can dribble, play, shoot," Fizdale said. "Why put him in a box? We know he can guard 1-4, he's extremely elite." We know The Frenchise is going to get a ton of minutes in his second season, so he's a name to monitor in the preseason to see if his offense has started to catch up to his elite defense.

When asked if it makes sense for the Knicks to hold Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out for the season, President Steve Mills said that the team won't jeopardize his long-term future.

It sounds like the Knicks are open to holding him out for the season, but there's no need to panic just yet. He's "coming along well" in his rehab, and we won't have to wait long for another update on his knee because he'll be re-evaluated this week. Health concerns aside, Porzingis just arrived to New York and is said to be excited about the direction of the franchise after meeting with coach David Fizdale.

ESPN's Tim MacMahon said the "word out of Dallas is that [Luka] Doncic has often been the best player on the court in pickup games at the Mavs' facility."

Some of the games included local products such as LaMarcus Aldridge, so it wasn't just with Mavs. Maybe it's just offseason talk, but we've already heard glowing reports from Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes and head coach Rick Carlisle. MacMahon added that Doncic isn't in great shape by NBA standards yet, but that's obviously understandable considering he took a lot of time off after a grueling season in Europe.

According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, the Rockets "don’t want to overextend" Chris Paul this season.

CP3 turned 33 back in May and signed a four-year, $160 million deal over the offseason. He played in 58 and 61 games over the past two seasons due to injury, and with the Rockets adding Brandon Knight, they could look to reduce Paul's workload with some maintenance days mixed in to keep him healthy for the postseason. He's still an elite fantasy point guard, but he's a lot more risky in head-to-head leagues for the reasons stated above.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Suns are targeting Patrick Beverley of the Clippers.

Shams added that Beverley is on the top of their list because they believe he'll be an ideal fit next to Devin Booker. For now, Los Angeles' asking price is a major roadblock, as they are looking for a first-round pick and the Suns are only willing to part with second rounders. Beverley would be very appealing in Phoenix, so he looks like a nice flier at his late-round ADP.

Dwyane Wade announced that he'll return with Miami for the 2018-19 season, referring to it as his "last dance."

"You ask yourself so many questions, you're like 'Can I physically do this? ... Can I be away from my family?'" Wade asks in a video announcing his decision (link below). The 36-year-old Wade doesn't have anything left to prove to the league, and he's turning down a reported three-year, $25 million offer from a team in China. He said he'll be giving "for one last season, everything else that I have left." After averaging a career-low 22.2 minutes with the Heat last year, though, fantasy owners can expect much value from the future Hall-of-Famer.

Dennis Schroder scored 30 points with 13 assists to help Germany clinch a spot in the 2019 World Cup on Sunday.

Schroder and teammate Maxi Kleber (Mavs) connected on a dramatic alley-oop to force OT -- you can watch the play via the link below. Both players look to be in fine form with NBA training camps on the horizon, and we'll be watching Schroder closely since his fantasy value hinges on his ability to play alongside Russell Westbrook.

Nets rookie Dzanan Musa hurt his right ankle during a FIBA game this weekend, but wrote that he'd "be back for ... the beginning of the training camp."

The severity of the injury will be assessed by Brooklyn on Monday, and initially it seems that reports by Bosnian media of an Achilles injury were incorrect. Musa's own tweet refutes that report, given his projected timetable, but we'll know more within a few days.

Justin Patton broke his right foot in workouts this week.

If he didn't have bad luck, he'd have no luck at all. Patton had surgery on his left foot for a fracture back in July 2017, and another left foot fracture surgery in April. He was just starting to come along and was posting some videos of him hitting the gym, and he could have made his season debut at some point in 2018. Now, he'll likely be shutdown for the foreseeable future.
