Brandon Ingram scored a game-high 26 points on Wednesday, going 5-of-13 from the field and 15-of-17 from the line in a 123-113 preseason win vs. the Warriors.

Ingram began this game 1-of-7 from the field and it was encouraging to see him staying aggressive offensively. He attacked the hoop with abandon and that seems to be a trend -- he's attempted 15 or more free throws in two games this preseason, after hitting double-digit attempts just three times during the entire 2017-18 season. Part of that is the league's emphasis on enforcing whistles early, but Ingram should benefit from a ton of easier looks with LeBron, Rondo and Lonzo around him.

Steven Adams not only played through his sore back on Tuesday, but played 36 minutes and finished with 17 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals in a 108-100 win over the Thunder.

We literally didn't know if Adams would play until just before game time, and he ruined the DFS hopes of guys rolling with Nerlens Noel, who played just 12 minutes and scored three points. Adams looked pretty good, although he was going against a guy named Damian Jones. The key is he was healthy enough to play and rewarded his owners, but we'll need to make sure he's over his back trouble before locking into him on a nightly basis without checking the Rotoworld newsfeed.

Kevon Looney played just 18 minutes off the bench, but still came through with 10 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Monday's win over the Thunder.

Nice. Looney turned out to be a DFS star tonight (33 points), but with just 18 minutes of action, he's not a must-own fantasy player. However, he still played 11 more minutes than Jordan Bell, and Andre Iguodala left this game with a calf injury. If Iggy is going to miss time, Looney could become a hot pickup. Watch for news on this situation as it develops.

Stephen Curry hit 11-of-20 shots, 5-of-9 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws to lead the Warriors to an opening-night 108-100 win over the Thunder.

He also had eight rebounds, nine assists, a steal and just three turnovers on his way to one of the lines of the night. He was helped by the fact Russell Westbrook (knee) was in street clothes, but this game was probably closer than it should have been, given that RW was out. The Warriors are 1-0, this season is officially underway, and Curry lived up to the hype tonight.

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala left in the first half of Golden State's season-opening game against the Thunder on Tuesday night with tightness in his left calf.

Iguodala is questionable to return, but he still hasn't been in the game with the fourth quarter well underway. That tells us he's unlikely to return. He doesn't have a lot of fantasy value, even if healthy, but his calf injury is something to monitor. He totaled two points, two rebounds and two assists in 10 minutes before exiting. An absence could mean more minutes for Kevon Looney and Shaun Livingston.

Markelle Fultz started in Tuesday's season opener vs. Boston, but was held to five points on 2-of-7 shots.

He played 21 first half minutes, but played just three in the second half with the 76ers in comeback mode. He was also a -16 for the night, so it's not like he deserved more run. Fultz added just three rebounds, two assists and a steal with three turnovers, and he looked lost for most of the game and wasn't aggressive. The 76ers have a cupcake matchup vs. the Bulls on Thursday, so we will be really concerned if he posts another dud in that one.

Ben Simmons posted a monster line in Tuesday's season opener, scoring 19 points with 15 rebounds, eight assists, four steals and two blocks in 43 minutes.

Coach Brett Brown didn't want to take him off the floor and it's hard to blame him. He looked like he was on another level for stretches of the game and had some phenomenal moments which included a no-look dish over his head to a cutting Markelle Fultz. His problems from the free throw line won't go away any time soon (5-of-11 FTs), but if you're willing to punt a category or two (free throws and 3-pointers/turnovers), Simmons could be a first-round value.

Joel Embiid's 23 points weren't enough in Tuesday's 105-87 season-opening loss to Boston.

Embiid also racked up 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes, hitting 9-of-21 shots and 4-of-5 free throws. The NBA’s leader in preseason usage rate (36.0) was getting whatever he wanted offensively (we even saw a skyhook) and had some emphatic blocks, but he was also careless with the ball with several lazy passes. We’ll chalk that up to some early-season rust, and it’s clear we’re in for a monster season as Embiid pursues the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year Award.
Oct 16 - 11:11 PM

Terry Rozier scored 11 points (5-of-10 FGs) with eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one triple in 27 minutes vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.

This game was very encouraging in terms of workload — he and Marcus Morris were the first two Celtics off the bench, Rozier played several minutes to Kyrie Irving and he also closed both halves. He even checked in for Kyrie with 4:28 left in the fourth quarter and drilled a 3-pointer to put this game to bed. Coach Brad Stevens is going to find a way to get Rozier on the court despite a deep Boston roster and he has Sixth Man of the Year written all over him. He’s only owned in 71% of Yahoo Leagues, so make sure your league isn’t one of them.

Gordon Hayward scored 10 points in Boston's regular-season opener, hitting 4-of-12 shots with five rebounds and four steals in 25 minutes.

Hayward said he still feels the ankle injury when he jumps off one foot and that his explosion isn’t all the way back, but he looked like his old self for stretches tonight -- he had a couple impressive steals and hit a pair of back-to-back jumpers in the second quarter. Hayward didn’t start the second half, but that’s because coach Brad Stevens wants him on the floor at the end of the game — this will likely be the case for the next few weeks with Hayward on a 25-30 minute restriction. He should only get better as the season progresses, but it's hard to gauge what his fantasy value will be on the deepest team in the East.
Oct 16 - 10:46 PM

Kyrie Irving hit just 2-of-14 shots for seven points in Tuesday's season-opener against the 76ers.

We were expecting some rust, but not this much. Irving was 0-of-8 from the field in the first half, but looked more like himself after the break. The good news is he salvaged his line with seven assists, four rebounds and a triple. Terry Rozier did close this game over Kyrie, but the Celtics did have a double-digit lead at the time. We won't overreact to one bad game, but it's fair to expect some duds from Kyrie since he's coming off a lengthy knee injury and because the Celtics are so deep this year. He'll get a few days off to prepare for a bounce-back effort vs. Toronto on Friday.
Oct 16 - 10:39 PM

Jayson Tatum put on a show in Boston's 105-87 opening-night win over Philly, scoring 23 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one triple in 29 minutes.

He picked up right where he left off as a rookie. Tatum scored nine of Boston's first 11 points, finishing 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Kyrie Irving's jumper wasn't working, so Tatum was the clear focal point of the offense. That's not going to be the case every night on one of the NBA's deepest teams, but this game was super encouraging and it looks like Tatum has taken another leap as a player. He's a superstar in the making.
