Latest Headlines

Derrick White (left heel pain) will not play in Friday's exhibition as a precaution.

The hits keep coming for San Antonio's young guards. Gregg Popovich confirmed on Wednesday that White is the starting PG going forward, and they need to get him reps as the lead guard, but they'd rather give him a full week to fully recover. There's no indication that it's serious and all signs point to him being ready for the opener. Patty Mills will likely start in his absence.

Jakob Poeltl is getting the start in the opener against the Wolves.

The Spurs are gutted in the backcourt, so they'll go heavier in the frontcourt tonight. Plus, the matchup makes sense against Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson. Poeltl offers nice upside for blocks with efficient shooting, so he could have value. Although, the coach Gregg Popovich factor likely means he'll mix in some duds.

Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas will start against the Cavs on Wednesday.

Coach Nick Nurse said he is going to routinely change his starting lineup, so this will be a fluid situation. Regardless, it's a great sign for Siakam that Nurse has confidence to start him opening night. He's been terrific all summer and could become a hot pickup with a strong line here. If your league is competitive, you may want to beat the rush and grab him now.

Carmelo Anthony will come off the bench on Wednesday against the Pelicans.

Someone tell Paul George. Last year's reference aside, credit to Melo for taking one for the team. He has said he still thinks he's a starter in the league, but it does make a lot of sense to bring him off the bench. He can be the No. 2 option next to either Chris Paul or James Harden as those two are staggered, but he may not be closing. He'll offer some ceiling in one of the more interesting situations of the season.

Derrick Jones Jr. and Rodney McGruder will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener against the Magic.

Wayne Ellington (ankle), Dion Waiters (ankle) and James Johnson (hernia) are out tonight, so Jones Jr. and McGruder should see steady minutes with the starting unit tonight. Joining them will be Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson and Hassan Whiteside, and Richardson is looking like an attractive DFS play with little depth behind him.

James Ennis will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener against the Pelicans, and Carmelo Anthony will come off the bench.

Ennis will be joined by Chris Paul, James Harden, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela, and that lineup should hold, unless they have serious issues. Melo has talked a lot about embracing the sixth man role, but it'll be interesting to see who's on the floor to close tonight. Ennis isn't a target in most settings, despite the starter tag.
Oct 17 - 6:22 PM

D'Angelo Russell, Joe Harris, Caris LeVert, Jared Dudley and Jarrett Allen will start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

The Nets don't have Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) or Allen Crabbe (ankle) to cut down their perimeter shooting. Harris is going to have no problem filling the role left by Crabbe while Dudley may be on a shorter leash with Treveon Graham and Rodion Kurucs nipping at his heels. Dudley isn't the best fantasy play.

Courtney Lee (neck) will not play Wednesday against the Hawks.

So the Knicks are a little short on perimeter players with Emmanuel Mudiay also not suiting up. This should mean Frank Ntilikina is going to get heavy minutes on the wing and he should be out there in three-guard lineups. This likely means Ron Baker could be in the rotation, and we may get a longer look at undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier. DFS wise, Burke looks like a nice play while Tim Hardaway Jr. gets even more run in a revenge game.
Oct 17 - 5:51 PM

Delon Wright (groin) is out against the Cavs on Wednesday.

His injury last week did not look good as he limped to the locker room, and it was even a small surprise he wasn't ruled out. Wright has been a staple in the second unit and mostly slotted in as the backup SG while the team was healthy, so his absence means a few more chances for Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell.
Oct 17 - 5:48 PM

Justise Winslow (hamstring) and Wayne Ellington (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

The good news for Winslow is that coach Erik Spoelstra said that this isn't a long-term concern, but the bad news is it'll likely keep him out tomorrow in Washington. With those two out, this means Derrick Jones Jr. and Rodney McGruder are going to get minutes in the 20s while we should see some Bam Adebayo at the four at times.
Oct 17 - 5:37 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) is out against the Pistons on Wednesday.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he may not have RHJ on Friday and isn't sure if he'll ease him back into the mix. Hollis-Jefferson has dealt with this injury since his August and it's very discouraging he's not ready to play yet. His owners may want to exercise patience or even consider dropping him in shallower formats. For tonight, this should ensure Treveon Graham and Jared Dudley will be in the rotation and we may even get a little more Rodion Kurucs than we bargained for. Oh, and it's also #LeVertSZN for Caris LeVert as he's set for huge minutes.
Oct 17 - 5:29 PM

Reggie Bullock (illness) is questionable against the Nets on Wednesday.

He'll be a game-time call for this one in front of the home folks. With Stanley Johnson (toe) already out, the Pistons wing depth is now down to Luke Kennard, Glenn Robinson III and Langston Galloway. The Pistons have shown interest in allowing Kennard to handle the rock more, so he may be the more attractive option to stream or as a DFS punt. GR3 is also someone to consider despite his usually-low usage rate.
