Jarrett Jack said his knee is 100 percent healthy.

He had an ACL tear back in January of 2016 and only played two games in 2016-17 after picking up another season-ending knee injury. He has a non-guaranteed deal with the Knicks, but he could make a push for minutes since their current depth chart at PG consists of Frank Ntilikina, Ramon Sessions and Ron Baker. He's not on the standard-league radar unless he moves up the chart.

Dante Cunningham has agreed to re-sign with the Pelicans on a one-year deal worth $2.3 million, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Timberwolves were reportedly aggressively pursuing Cunningham, but he probably has a better chance of being a regular part of the rotation in New Orleans, so that may have influenced his decision process. Cunningham could potentially start at the three-spot for the Pelicans with Solomon Hill (hamstring) essentially done for the year, but even as a starter, Cunningham won't be a fantasy factor in most leagues.

Michael Beasley said that he changed his diet and lost approximately 20 pounds this offseason.

With NBA training camps opening next week, get ready to hear countless players declare that they are in the best shape of their lives. Still, to his credit, based on recent workout footage, The Beas does look noticeably slimmer. From a fantasy perspective, Beasley's value is tied directly to Carmelo Anthony. If Melo is traded, Beasley could slide into the Knicks starting lineup and put up plenty of points.

The Miami Heat announced that they have exercised their fourth-year team option on Justise Winslow.

This was a no-brainer for Miami, as Winslow will count just $3.5 million against the cap in 2018-19. He is coming off major shoulder surgery (torn rotator cuff) but said that he is "100 percent" healthy heading into training camp. Winslow has not lived up to expectations over his first two NBA seasons, but has a bright future, as he's still quite young. Per NBA.com, Winslow was the third-youngest player in the league to start on Opening Night during the 2015-16 season at just 20 years, 216 days.

Patrick Patterson's rehab following knee surgery has been "progressing well," according to a Thunder official.

Patterson had an arthroscopic scope his left knee on Aug. 10. The Thunder termed the procedure "proactive" and said there was no structural damage to the knee. At the time, it was announced that he would be reevaluated 4-6 weeks after the surgery. However, according to the report in The Oklahoman, there is no update on a timetable for his return. We should get a complete update at OKC's media day next Monday.

According to OKC beat writer Brett Dawson, Alex Abrines (knee) is progressing toward a return to the court.

Abrines injured his knee in Spain's first EuroBasket game, back on September 7th. He's had issues with both knees over the past few years and had platelet-rich plasma injections in his right knee in May. Abrines is back in OKC after sitting out the FIBA tournament, but it is currently unknown if he'll be ready for the start of training camp next week. However, with Paul George now in the mix, Abrines has very limited fantasy value even if he is fully healthy.

Danilo Gallinari (thumb) is "just days away from a return and should be ready to go for training camp," according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders.

Gallinari fractured the first metacarpal on his right (shooting) hand after punching an opponent during a EuroBasket exhibition game back in late July. He was expected back on the court in 4-6 weeks according to the original prognosis, so it appears he has not suffered any setbacks. However, Gallo has played in just 175 out of a possible 328 games over the last four seasons, so durability is certainly a concern going forward.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has spoken directly with free agent Dante Cunningham and the Wolves are awaiting his decision.

Cunningham is arguably the top unrestricted free agent still left on the open market. It sounds like he's deciding between the Wolves, Bucks and Pelicans. Training camp starts in less than a week, so we should have a final answer in the next day or so.

Glen Davis - F/C -

Glen Davis is attempting an NBA comeback and said he is willing to play in the G-League this season.

Davis has not played in the NBA since the 2014-15 season with the Clippers, having dealt with numerous injuries over the last two years. Davis said he currently weighs 315 pounds and hopes to get down to around 295. He's a long way from returning to fantasy relevance.

The Hornets signed G Terry Henderson to a non-guaranteed contract on Monday.

Henderson averaged 13.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 30.9 minutes per game at N.C. State last season as a senior. He is a longshot to make the 15-man roster and should be ignored in all fantasy formats.

The Heat may give Goran Dragic extra rest during training camp.

Dragic recently carried Slovenia to its first EuroBasket championship and was named MVP of the tournament. However, he had to sit out the fourth quarter of the final due to cramping. Slovenia coach Igor Kokoskov said Dragic "couldn’t play for a quarter. He was cramping on the side, he was laying on the floor. It wasn’t my decision, it was just the body. His body was quitting on Goran." After expending so much energy in mid-September, Miami may choose to rest him more than usual at camp. Still, this won't have any impact on his fantasy value, as he should be completely fresh for the regular season.

According to a report in the Miami Herald, Justise Winslow has been committed to improving his shooting this offseason.

Per the Herald's source, Winslow "has been off the board with his commitment this summer - both in time invested in the gym and a diligence about developing his game, including his shooting." The Heat had high expectations when they drafted Winslow out of Duke, but his first two seasons have been rocky. A shoulder injury limited him to just 18 games last season, and he shot just 35.6 percent from the floor. He'll be competing for the starting small forward spot in the preseason.

Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year deal with the Lakers for the veteran's minimum.

As expected, the Lakers keep their financial flexibility for the free agent market in 2018. Bogut is familiar with coach Luke Walton from his Warriors days and should slide in as Brook Lopez's backup, though Ivica Zubac isn't just going to hand him his minutes. He's not a fantasy target after averaging 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 blocks last season.

The Heat have signed Erik McCree to their training camp roster.

The 6'8" forward played three seasons at Louisiana Tech, averaging 14.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.4 triples. The Heat now have 19 players on their training camp roster, so they still have one spot to fill. McCree is unlikely to make the team and is a candidate to join their G-League affiliate.

The Grizzlies and Ivan Rabb are reportedly close to coming to terms on a three-year deal.

The Grizzlies still haven't signed JaMychal Green, but most reports indicate that the two sides are close to striking a deal. Assuming Green does re-up with Memphis, that will leave Rabb to fight for the reserve minutes with Jarrell Martin. In other words, we don't expect Rabb to be a fantasy factor his rookie year.
