Cody Zeller (bruised right knee) was a full participant in Sunday's practice.
He's questionable for opening night, but coach Steve Clifford has already conceded that Zeller will be very limited upon his return due to a lack of conditioning. Roy Hibbert will almost certainly start on opening night, but there are no guarantees he can keep the job once Zeller gets up to speed.
Pacers waive G Julyan Stone.
Stone will reportedly play for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the D-League, so there's a chance he'll catch the eye of another NBA franchise this season.
Pacers waive F Jeremy Evans.
Evans struggled with a shoulder injury this preseason and failed to score in two appearances. He was never expected to be a part of the rotation.
The Timberwolves have exercised their third-year option on Karl-Anthony Towns.
KAT's rookie year was pretty legendary, and he's all setup to have an incredible sophomore season under head coach Tom Thibodeau. He's going to cost you a top-5 pick if you want him.
The Timberwolves have picked up their team option on Tyus Jones.
Recent reports indicate that the Timberwolves are shopping Jones, which makes sense given Minnesota's wealth of options at the point guard position. He's not worth drafting anywhere.
The Timberwolves have exercised their fourth-year team option on Zach LaVine.
Andrew Wiggins' fourth year option was also picked up, so the Bounce Bros get at least one more year together. LaVine was impressive after the All-Star break last season, compiling averages of 16.4 points, 2.8 assists, 2.4 triples and 1.2 steals per contest on 48.0 percent shooting, so he makes sense as a mid-round target on draft day.
Andrew Wiggins (illness) will play in Minnesota's regular-season opener against Memphis on Wednesday.
Wiggins experienced an allergic reaction in his eyes and said that his face swelled up so bad that he felt like Will Smith in Hitch. He's fine now, though, and there's nothing suggesting that he won't take the court Wednesday night. Additionally, the Wolves have exercised their fourth year option on Wiggins.
Donatas Motiejunas (contract dispute) is doubtful to play on opening night.
Motiejunas' qualifying offer has now expired, but there's still a chance he and the Rockets could come to terms on a deal before the final roster cuts are made on Monday. However, even if he does agree to sign with Houston, he missed all of training camp and the preseason, so his conditioning is likely an issue. Until he actually has a contract with a team, there's no reason to draft him in any league.
