Steve Novak (knee) said he will not have restrictions during training camp.

Novak suffered a season-ending knee injury last season which required surgery, but he recently worked out with his teammates and said he didn't experience any pain. Novak re-signed with the Bucks this week and is expected to have a limited role off the bench. He won't be a fantasy asset.

The Bucks are expected to sign Steve Novak.

Steve Novak is still hopeful to reach an agreement to return to the Bucks.

Mark Bartelstein, Novak's agent, said that the sharpshooter has options but Milwaukee is his first choice. "There have been a few teams that we’ve talked to; you always got to keep your doors open,’’ Bartelstein said. "But we’re still talking with the Bucks and, hopefully, we’ll make a deal with them. Steve would love to stay in Milwaukee. It’s a very special place for him.’’ Novak would see minutes in the teens at best with the Bucks, so fantasy owners don't need to pay him any attention.

An MRI revealed a sprained left MCL for Steve Novak and he's expected to miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Steve Novak has been diagnosed with a sprained left knee and will be re-evaluated on Sunday.

Novak played 11 minutes vs. the Pistons on Saturday with four points and one 3-pointer, but it sounds like he could miss some time. If he does, expect Rashad Vaughn to see a few extra minutes off the bench. Novak is not a fantasy option and belongs on the wire.

The Bucks are the favorites to sign Steve Novak when he clears waivers on Sunday.

It's a little surprising that the Bucks are the frontrunners because Novak was expected to sign with a contender. Regardless, Novak isn't going to have much fantasy value in Milwaukee, so he should be ignored in all leagues for now.
