Rockets waive F Earl Clark.

He had little chance to make the team and Clark might wind up elsewhere.
Oct 25 - 8:28 PM

Sixers waive G Ronald Roberts.

It was obvious and Roberts' injury hurt his chances. Owners in 100-man leagues can make the move.
Oct 25 - 6:53 PM

Sixers waive G Malcolm Lee.

He had a chance to compete for minutes, but the ankle injury may have cost him. Lee will likely wind up overseas.
Oct 25 - 6:47 PM

Derrick Rose said that he is in a "great place mentally, spiritually and emotionally."

This isn't a surprise and most players will say stuff like this anyway, but Rose sounds ready for the season. He actually finished strong this preseason, but there is still a tremendous amount of doubt whether he'll be able to stay healthy this season.
Oct 25 - 6:16 PM

Jason Richardson (knee, foot) suffered a stress fracture to his right foot and he will be out indefinitely.

He showed up to practice today in a walking boot and now we know why. Without even knowing the specifics, it seems like Richardson is very likely to be out for the season, which opens up minutes for K.J. McDaniels, Chris Johnson and Elliot Williams. K.J. is the only player worthy of your attention in standard leagues.

The Grizzlies waived Kalin Lucas and Patrick Christopher on Saturday.

They are expected to join the D-league and both are off of the fantasy radar.
Oct 25 - 5:33 PM

The Orlando Magic have waived Peyton Siva, Seth Curry, Kadeem Batts, and Drew Crawford on Saturday.

This was an expected move and these four players will end up in the D-league if they clear waivers. None of them have any fantasy value.

Seth Curry - G -

Magic waive G Seth Curry.

His brother is on fire but Seth can't get it going. He'll likely be headed to the D-League.
Oct 25 - 5:26 PM

Tyreke Evans was extremely late to practice on Saturday.

He was probably an hour late or so, but everything seems to be fine. Coach Monty Williams said the team will take care of the issue internally.
Oct 25 - 5:18 PM

Larry Sanders took part in a portion of contact practice on Saturday and is building towards playing in the opener.

This is a great sign for his status on Wednesday, and we will continue to monitor this situation closely. Sanders is a candidate to redeem himself after a disastrous campaign last season. He should fall nicely in drafts and you shouldn't hesitate to grab him in the early-late rounds.
Oct 25 - 5:15 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed on Saturday that Cartier Martin will start at shooting guard on Wednesday if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is unable to suit up.

If KCP does indeed sit out then Martin could be a decent daily option especially with Jodie Meeks (back) still out. KCP is still the player to target late in your drafts for his upside and he is not expected to be out much longer.

Ben McLemore (eye) received five stitches above his right eye, and passed his precautionary concussion test.

McLemore was disappointing last season, and even though he has made strides in the preseason, it appears he will be locked in a timeshare with promising rookie Nik Stauskas. Neither player should be targeted in standard leagues, although Stauskas would be the better choice in deep leagues.
Oct 25 - 4:37 PM

The Cavs have picked up the fourth-year option on Dion Waiters.

To be clear, this is not for a front-office role, because Waiters has made numerous comments about other players in the league. He's still just a scorer and is a late-round target at best in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 25 - 4:33 PM

Victor Oladipo is expected to miss one month of the season due to his facial fracture.

Most facial fractures tend to cost players 5-7 games, so this is a significant blow to Oladipo's prospects this season. The Magic have yet to announce what bone in Oladipo's face is broken, so we'll be on the lookout for that news. He's having a rough start to his season and is worth a look in the 60-100 range depending on your fantasy format. Evan Fournier is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Oct 25 - 4:22 PM

The Dallas Mavericks waived Bernard James, Ivan Johnson, and Doron Lamb on Saturday.

They were not expected to make the team and Charlie Villanueva is breathing easy now. None of these players are on the fantasy radar.
