George Hill is listed as questionable for Thursday's game after suffering a left knee contusion on Tuesday night.

"It swelled up pretty good so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and take it day to day," coach Frank Vogel said after Tuesday's game. Hill should be ready to go for the start of the regular season, and we're expecting him to be considerably better this season than last. Donald Sloan is pushing C.J. Watson for back up duties, but Hill is the guy you want to own.

Justin Hamilton, who has been out for the Heat with a heart issue, is expected to play on Friday.

He's not going to have a big role with the Heat, but he's been out for the preseason with the ailment.
Oct 22 - 2:37 AM

Josh McRoberts is not likely to play in the Heat's preseason finale on Friday as he recovers from toe surgery.

While McBob is out, Shawne Williams is starting at PF for the Heat, but you have to think that will end once McRoberts is healthy and gets a few practices in.

Suns rookie T.J. Warren hurt his left thumb during Tuesday's game and he'll be re-examined on Wednesday.

His thumb got caught in one of the Lakers jerseys, leaving his status uncertain for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers. The injury doesn't sound serious, but regardless of the diagnosis it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out until Friday's finale as a precaution.

Warriors C Ognjen Kuzmic had eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block as a starter with Andrew Bogut (illness) unavailable on Tuesday.

He did his damage in just 27 minutes, and it was an impressive showing for the 24 year old considering he was matched up with DeAndre Jordan. Kuzmic's solid preseason may have earned him a spot in Steve Kerr's rotation, but it hasn't made him a viable fantasy option.
Oct 22 - 1:38 AM

Ekpe Udoh (ankle) came off the bench for one point and four rebounds in the Warriors' next-to-last preseason game on Tuesday.

He also picked up five personal fouls in just 12 minutes of action, and L.A. has enough frontcourt depth that he's off the radar in all fantasy formats.
Oct 22 - 1:34 AM

Festus Ezeli (shin) made his preseason debut in style on Tuesday, notching 10 points, three rebounds and one block in just 11 minutes of action.

Ezeli missed the entire 2013-14 season but he looked great the moment he took the court, and the backup C job is his to lose. With Andrew Bogut a perpetual injury risk, Ezeli is worth keeping on the fantasy radar in deep leagues.
Oct 22 - 1:33 AM

Matt Barnes' preseason doldrums continued on Tuesday, as he scored three points on 1-of-7 shooting with four assists, three steals and one block.

The defensive stats are nice but his shooting slump is out of control. He's now a combined 3-of-31 from the field this preseason, including 1-of-18 from downtown. Chris Douglas-Roberts is a looming threat to Barnes' playing time at SF, but he's still worth a flier pick for his sneaky across-the-board contributions.
Oct 22 - 1:32 AM

Spencer Hawes had 14 points and seven rebounds in a start at PF on Tuesday, with Blake Griffin resting as a precaution.

Hawes chipped in two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in just 28 minutes, highlighting his unique skill-set for a seven-footer. He was a top-50 player in just 31 minutes last season, and shouldn't see fewer than 25 per game backing up Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, so don't be afraid to grab him in the final rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:29 AM

Clippers training-camp invitee Jared Cunningham scored a team-high 23 points in Tuesday's exhibition, hitting 6-of-15 FGs and 9-of-12 FTs with a pair of 3-pointers.

He also had three rebounds, three assists and one steal, but can expect to get an earful from Doc Rivers about his six turnovers. Cunningham is fighting for a roster spot and although this helps his odds considerably, it doesn't make him relevant for fantasy purposes.
Oct 22 - 1:28 AM

The Clippers fell to the Warriors on Tuesday despite J.J. Redick's preseason-high 21 points, three 3-pointers, three assists, two steals and one block.

Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were both resting so Redick took on a heavier offensive load, sinking 6-of-15 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs, though he failed to grab any rebounds in 33 minutes. When healthy he's a decent late-round option in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues.
Oct 22 - 1:26 AM

DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in a losing effort on Tuesday, while making 5-of-8 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs.

He's picking up right where he left off last season, shooting 76 percent over the past five games while racking up copious rebounds, steals and blocks. His FT shooting is worse than ever (37 percent in the preseason), so roto owners must be wary of his ability to tank a category single-handedly.
Oct 22 - 1:24 AM

The Blazers are expected to rest all of their starters except for Damian Lillard during Wednesday's exhibition vs. the Lakers.

Terry Stotts is just giving his core players a break during a meaningless game, and this has zero impact on any player's fantasy outlook.

Isaiah Thomas led the Suns with 26 points in Tuesday's road win, hitting 6-of-12 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in just 31 minutes off the bench.

IT3 made two 3-pointers while adding four rebounds, one assist and two steals to round out his evening. Jeff Hornacek has been open about his willingness to experiment with a three-guard lineup, pairing Thomas with starters Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. Even if that idea gets shelved, Thomas has enough per-minute upside to justify a pick in the late-middle rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:06 AM

Jordan Hill scored a preseason-high 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting vs. Phoenix on Tuesday, adding seven rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

Hill hasn't earned much hype this offseason but he's an excellent late-round fantasy option. As a taste of his upside, consider his stats after the All-Star-break last year: 12.8 points on 56.3 percent shooting, 8.6 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.3 blocks in just 24 minutes per game.
