Festus Ezeli (shin) is probable for Tuesday's exhibition.
Steve Kerr said he'll deploy Ezeli late in the second quarter, and he's unlikely to play more than a handful of minutes in his first game since May of 2013. His return has no impact in typical fantasy leagues, but it's great news for the Warriors in reality -- Andrew Bogut is a constant injury risk and Jermaine O'Neal is gone, so Ezeli provides much-needed depth at center.
Brandon Rush's back spasms will keep him on the sidelines for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.
His back flared up during each of the Warriors' past two exhibitions, so he may take a few days off to fully recover. Golden State has enough depth on the wings that Andre Iguodala could fill a bench role, and there's no reason to touch Rush on draft day.
Will Bynum's agent is working with the Celtics to find a suitable trade, failing which Bynum is expected to be waived.
The 31-year-old Bynum is recovering from a strained hamstring and hasn't even joined the Celtics for training camp. "It’s a tough time of year to make a trade," a league source told the Boston Herald. "Teams are still trying to get used to their rosters, see what they have. Most likely [the Celtics] will have to waive him." No matter where he lands, Bynum will fill a fantasy-irrelevant bench role.
Hawks waive G Jarell Eddie.
Eddie went undrafted out of Virginia Tech and he's a longshot to earn a guaranteed contract with an NBA team this year. With the regular season a week away, the Hawks have trimmed their roster to 15 players.
Hawks waive C Dexter Pittman.
Pittman, who won a championship with the Heat in 2011-12, was never expected to make Atlanta's final roster. He played nine minutes in his lone preseason appearance and will likely spend his days overseas or in the D-League this year.
Steve Blake (upper respiratory illness) didn't travel with the Blazers for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
Blake is day-to-day and his absence means more playing time for C.J. McCollum and Will Barton, who are vying for reserve PG/SG minutes. Mo Williams couldn't sustain reliable value as a backup in Portland last season, so Blake belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Andrea Bargnani's status for Wednesday's regular season opener is unclear due to his hamstring injury.
The No.1 overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft has missed over two weeks with his hamstring injury and is now in danger of missing regular season games. The Knicks' frontcourt depth is thin enough that Bargnani could provide some deep league fantasy value when (if?) healthy, but owners in standard leagues would do best to look elsewhere for now.
C.J. Watson (sore right foot) will not play in Tuesday's exhibition game against Minnesota.
It's worth noting that Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said that Watson would be able to play if it were the regular season. While Watson isn't the best option in standard fantasy leagues, he should see enough minutes at both guard spots to be a worthy late-round flier in deeper leagues.
