John Wall went through an "extensive workout" with the Wizards on Tuesday.

Wall got up some shots, did hard cuts and also went through some dribble drills where he'd burst to the rim. Scott Brooks said that he'll do "a little more" on Friday, but wouldn't commit to Wall being able to go through contact, which would mean no 5-on-5 work. Wall will need to go through some full contact, 5-on-5 work before he's cleared to play, so if that doesn't happen on Friday, we can assume he won't play on Saturday against the Pacers. Stay tuned.

Pau Gasol said he's "down" with coming the bench in San Antonio this season.

Gasol wants to do whatever will help the team win, and it would make some sense to bring the 38-year-old off the bench in order to help keep his minutes in the lower-20s. If Gasol ends up running with the second unit, that would open the door for Jakob Poeltl to start, making him an even more intriguing late-round target on draft day. At this point in his career, Gasol isn't really worth drafting anywhere.

Austin Rivers (neck spasms) sat out the contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

Rivers should be fine with a few days of rest, so we'd expect the Wizards to take it easy on him through the early days of camp. Rivers could step into a sort of sixth man role with the Wizards this season, but as long as John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, it'll be tough for him to see much more than 25 minutes a night. He's worth drafting in most settings.

Coach James Borrego said Willy Hernangomez's ceiling is "high and wide" and he's capable of averaging a double-double this year.

"It's up to him to put pressure on me and our staff to play him the minutes to go get those double-doubles," Borrego said. The coach really talked up Hernangomez on Monday, saying he had a great spirit, he "changed his body" and that he extended his range to 3-point territory. If he can win the starting job, Hernangomez could be a valuable piece in fantasy in what should be an improved offense. He's worth a late-round flier to see if he can come through.

Coach Dave Joerger said De'Aaron Fox is the Kings' "franchise guy."

"I think he is and I think everybody kind of agrees on that," Joerger said. "Yet we’re still waiting on other guys as they develop and rise up in their careers." Joerger also said that the Kings are changing their schemes to play younger guys and to play faster, which Fox addressed. "Push the​ ball," Fox said about what the coach told him. Fox also hit the weight room to get stronger, and it sounds like he'll be given every opportunity to shine this year. He's high-upside player to take in the second half of drafts.

Skal Labissiere said he’s added 20 pounds in the offseason.

He hired a chef to focus on healthy eating, and he traveled less while hitting the weight room instead. This year is a big season for Skal because the Kings now have Harry Giles and Marvin Bagley III in the mix. With the Kings playing their younger guys, Labissiere should be in the rotation, but he's not a strong fantasy target just yet.

Jrue Holiday has taken Frank Jackson under his wing this summer.

Jackson spent 3.5 weeks with Holiday and trainer Mike Guevara to help prepare for training camp. Jackson was also asked about getting over his ankle injury from Vegas. "I feel good and my body feels great. Nothing is bothering me," Jackson said. We have a very small sample on Jackson due to his injuries, but he sure showed upside in that one half. Apparently, Holiday is a believer as well, so keep an eye on Jackson in the preseason.

Coach Dave Joerger said he's going to commit to giving the younger guys more playing time.

"We're excited about the young guys we have and we're going to commit to playing more young guys than we have in the past," Joerger said. Could it be? Could the Kings finally have learned how to develop their guys? If so, this could be wonderful news for the fantasy values of guys like De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles.

Dwight Howard (back) is expected to miss Washington’s first practice, and possibly more sessions, as he deals with soreness in his back.

Not an ideal way to being training camp. Howard says the back pain is partly the result of traveling to China. "Airplanes weren’t made for tall people. It kind of sucks flying 15 hours curled up in the fetal position. Just a minor setback, but should take that long for me to get back on the court. I’ve been feeling great all summer. Just something that we’ll have to deal with, but it shouldn’t keep me out too long." Howard is downplaying the problem, but he does have a history of back problems, having undergone surgery in 2012 to repair a herniated disc. We'll keep an eye on this situation over the next couple of weeks.

Coach Scott Brooks made it clear that he wants Otto Porter to take more 3-pointers this season.

The Wizard coaching staff wants to increase their 3-points attempts in 2017-18, and Porter is the team's best shooter. Brook's instructions to Porter: "Shoot the ball every time you get an open shot. Do not hesitate." Brooks added: "He's one of the best perimeter shooters in the league, and we need more threes. We've been trying to do that for two years, and we've got one of our best shooters passing up shots." An increase in 3-point attempts will lift Porter's fantasy stock.

Bogdan Bogdanovic is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after undergoing minor arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Monday.

The good news is that it won't be a long-term absence, but Bogdanovic is probably going to miss the first couple weeks of the season. He averaged 11.8 points, 1.7 triples, 2.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists last season and gives the Kings another ball-handler to take the pressure off De'Aaron Fox, so he's worth stashing if you have an IR spot. Buddy Hield has a clear path to 30+ minutes right out of the gate.

Moe Harkless (knee surgery) has still not been cleared for 5-on-5 work.

Harkless underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late-March and missed about a month of action before returning for two playoff games, although he didn't look quite right and sat out Portland's Game 4 loss to New Orleans. It's not a great sign that he's still recovering from what is typically a relatively minor procedure, and there's a chance this could impact his status for the regular season. If he's forced to begin the year on the sidelines, that would translate to more run for Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu.
