Luol Deng is expected to come to an agreement with the Wolves this week according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Of course he will. Now coach Tom Thibodeau just needs to bring in Joakim Noah to recreate the 2010 Bulls. Deng should have a role, and if he's going to steal minutes from someone they could come from Taj Gibson or Andrew Wiggins. Assuming Deng signs, that would be bad news for rookie Keita Bates-Diop as well.

Andre Drummond scored 24 points with 20 rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Nets during a 103-100 victory on Wednesday.

He attempted three from deep and it's clear the Pistons are still going to allow him to launch triples for at least a little while longer. Coach Dwane Casey let him shoot in the preseason despite all the misses and he made a joke about it after the game. ""He probably reached his quota, but he stepped into them," Casey said. Drummond is also the first Piston player with a 20-20 in the opener, and you can bet he'll have plenty more where that came from.

Giannis Antetokounmpo opened the season with 25 points, 18 rebounds, eight assists, one block and eight turnovers in 35 minutes vs. Charlotte.

He made 9-of-21 FGs and 7-of-12 FTs, and came two boards shy of his career-high. Giannis was a lock in the top-four for fantasy this season, and there was a case for him as early as No. 1 -- tonight is Exhibit A why he's a prime MVP candidate. His scoring, FG percentages and rebounds have improved every single season, and there's no reason he can't take yet another step forward in 2018-19. It's a scary thought.

The Mavericks will start Dennis Smith Jr., Wes Matthews, Luka Doncic, Dorian Finney-Smith, and DeAndre Jordan on Wednesday against the Suns.

Finney-Smith slides into the starting unit with Harrison Barnes still not quite ready to play. There's a chance Barnes will be back this weekend, which will push DFS to the bench. He should stay in the rotation, but won't have much fantasy value.

Jarrett Allen's sophomore season got off to a wonderful start against the Pistons on Wednesday, scoring 17 points with 10 rebounds, four blocks and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Giddy up. The Nets feasted inside with 66 points in the paint to tie their best in all of last season, and Allen's 3-pointers were not flukes as he sat in the corner to pull Andre Drummond away from the rim. Allen's four blocks were not cheapies either with the early candidate for swat of the year against Blake Griffin (video in link below). He'll be setting screens all season for guys who will look to him for easy buckets, so the breakout hype train for Allen has already hit full steam ahead after one game in the season. Don't look to sell high and enjoy the ride.

Domantas Sabonis was terrific in 29 minutes off the bench Wednesday, scoring 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 15 rebounds (six offensive) and two assists.

The big man was aided by lackluster defense from the Grizzlies, who allowed him to get whatever he wanted around the rim. He was fantastic during the preseason, so this isn't a fluke, and he needs to be owned everywhere -- even if he's limited to around 24 minutes in a timeshare with Myles Turner, he has enough versatility to hit top-100 value.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points off the bench against the Pistons on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

He circled this date on the calendar on Twitter over the summer, so the #RevengeGame believers get another notch on the ol' belt. Dinwiddie outplayed D'Angelo Russell again tonight and he earned the closing role over D-Lo. Perhaps the bad news for him here is that Caris LeVert is clearly the class of this backcourt right now, so it'll likely be a hot-hand approach with Spencer and D-Lo. They are both likely worth owning in most formats until Allen Crabbe (ankle) is back.

Tim Hardaway Jr. tallied 31 points, six rebounds, five assists, three treys, two steals and zero turnovers in the Knicks blowout 126-107 victory over the Hawks on opening night.

THJ was able to do his damage quickly, as he logged only 29 minutes in this contest. He was erratic from the field early on but caught fire in the second quarter and finished 10-0f-22 from the floor, 3-of-9 from downtown and knocked down all eight of his free throws. Per Basketball-Reference, Hardaway Jr. is the first Knick in franchise history to tally at least 30 points, five rebounds and five assists in a season opener. With the Knicks needing offense, THJ will attempt 20+ shots quite frequently. If he can shoot a decent percentage, his fantasy stock will continue to rise.

Caris LeVert matched his career-high 27 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He ran the offense for most of the game and continued to show his rapport with Jarrett Allen. LeVert had a clear runway to take off this year following the news of DeMarre Carroll (ankle) having surgery, and there's almost no chance LeVert will lose his grasp now that he has a defined role in the 30s. He can be a bit turnover prone, but LeVert has a chance to score close to 20 with plenty of other stats along the way. He's a clear breakout candidate and his savvy owners shouldn't be looking to sell high.

OG Anunoby (right orbital contusion) left Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers after getting hit in the face and will not return.

Anunoby came off the bench, playing 18 minutes and scoring four points before exiting. The Raptors next game is on Friday, so we should find out more about his status in the next couple days. Stay tuned for updates.
Oct 17 - 9:46 PM

The Kings updated their starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, which is now De'Aaron Fox, Yogi Ferrell, Buddy Hield, Nemanja Bjelica, and Willie Cauley-Stein.

Bjelica gets the start in his Kings debut. The Kings will play many different lineup combinations this season, which will probably hurt Bjelica. Plus, they have their highly-touted draft pick, Marvin Bagley, that needs to play. It's best to avoid Bjelica, even with this news.
Oct 17 - 9:43 PM

Devin Booker (right hand) is officially in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Mavericks, joined by Isaiah Canaan, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson, and DeAndre Ayton.

Booker has been going through full-contact workouts the past few days to get ready for the start of the season. He hasn't expressed any concern over his hand and should be ready to go. He will handle the ball a lot for the Suns and is in for a big season.
