Paul George (groin) said he feels alright and expects to play on Friday against the Clippers.

He didn't return to Tuesday's game after a hard fall, but it sounds like George and his fantasy owners dodged a bullet. He'll have a full two days to recover and we should get plenty of updates on his status leading up to Friday's game.

Reggie Jackson (ankle) said he is day-to-day.

"I’ve been nursing injuries, and they’re nagging, but it’s part of the career, part of life," Jackson said on Wednesday. He didn't provide many details, but said it's still a rehab process. Jackson was able to return from his ankle sprain for 12 games last season and he may not have been 100 percent, but it sounds like he may be limited in the preseason. Ish Smith makes sense as a late-round flier for now, and maybe Luke Kennard can get some PG minutes.

Jimmy Butler's three preferred destinations are the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

It's an interesting list, and it's not a coincidence that all three teams would have a max salary slot for Butler next season. Of course, the Wolves will have the final say on who they choose to deal with, and it may be hard for the Knicks to put a package together. There is a lot of fantasy fallout from this news, but it shouldn't affect Jimmy too much. Karl-Anthony Towns looks like he's poised for an even bigger year while Jeff Teague would get to run the offense. It also makes sense to take a flier on Tyus Jones until we find out how this ends.

Isaiah Thomas' (right hip) availability for training camp remains in question according to Nuggets President Tim Connelly.

"We want to be especially sensitive to Isaiah," Connelly said. "I think he probably has rushed back (in the past). We want Isaiah to be right, so he's working his butt off a couple times a day with our guys." Thomas said back in July that he would "for sure" be ready for camp after undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery in March, but there's no word of a setback and it sounds like the Nuggets will bring him along very slowly by design.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said Lonzo Ball (knee) won’t be ready for 5-on-5 scrimmages when training camp starts next week.

Ball has gone through some 1-on-1 drills, but Walton said the Lakers won’t "rush him back at all." He had the injured portion of his left meniscus removed during his July surgery and was expected to be 100 percent for camp, so this obviously isn't ideal with the season less than a month away. He's shaping up to be a risk vs. reward player in the middle rounds.

Pacers President Kevin Pritchard hinted that Kyle O'Quinn might not be in the rotation.

Here's what Pritchard said to KOQ during his recruiting pitch: "We don't know if you're going to play a minute or 500 minutes, but there's a role that Al Jefferson held last year that was a tremendous role for us that's so important." Big Al played 13.4 minutes across 36 appearances last season, so if that's what they're envisioning for KOQ then his fantasy value will be non-existent. On the other hand, this is great news for Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (left adductor strain) will be ready for training camp according to Nets GM Sean Marks.

Marks didn't go into detail, but it's nice to have an update because we've heard very little since he picked up the injury in early August. RHJ is the favorite to start as Brooklyn's small-ball four this season and will be a nice source of points, out-of-position assists, rebounds and defensive stats.

Despite a "fantastic offseason," GM Sean Marks said it's unlikely that the Nets will agree to an extension with D'Angelo Russell before the Oct. 15 deadline.

"If I was to say right now, I’d probably say we’ll let it ride out. But things change in this business pretty quickly, so we’ll adjust as we go," Marks said. This isn't a big surprise with the Nets trying to keep their flexibility for free agency in 2019. Russell is healthy, motivated and the coaching staff and his teammates have been talking him up all summer, but as talented as he is, inefficiency and durability concerns makes him one of the most polarizing fantasy assets.

The 76ers have hired Elton Brand to be their new GM, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Brand impressed ownership and Brett Brown during the interview process, beating out several other candidates, and he will now be elevated from VP of Basketball Operations. He rose through the ranks in Philly, from the GM of the G-League team to now overseeing the 76ers franchise, and he did all that in just a years' time.

Mike Conley has completely recovered from the left heel surgery and he'll be working without limitations at training camp.

"Right now he’s in full participation in everything we’re doing," Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. "In training camp, our expectation is that he’s full go... We don’t have any expectation of Mike missing anything. As the season goes, we’ll keep an eye on him." Bickerstaff also noted that with the added depth at point guard he'll be able to better manage Conley's minutes, so it sounds like they want to keep him in the lower-30s this year.

Dion Waiters (foot surgery) will not be ready for the start of training camp and it's unlikely he'll be cleared in time for Miami's regular-season opener on October 17.

"Dion will not be returning to the court until the Heat medical team and training staff deem him healed, rehabbed and physically conditioned for all basketball activities," said Pat Riley in an official Miami Heat statement. Waiters will likely be brought along slowly, and he'll be competing for minutes with Dwyane Wade and Wayne Ellington, so there's no reason to target him in any leagues.

Brett Brown said he's expecting Joel Embiid to be "dominant" this season.

Brown has been thoroughly impressed with Embiid's workouts this summer, and we'd anticipate the 24-year-old center taking another big leap forward in his third NBA season. While he remains a bit of an injury-risk after only making it through 63 games last season, it's worth noting that none of those missed games last season were due to knee or foot issues. If you want him, you'll need to invest at the top of Round 2.
