The Nuggets released F Quincy Miller on Tuesday.

His deal became partially-guaranteed last April but that wasn't enough incentive for Denver to keep him now that Danilo Gallinari (knee) is healthy and starting ahead of Wilson Chandler at SF.

Michael Carter-Williams (right shoulder) went through non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice, but there's still no timetable for his return.

"It was good watching [Carter-Williams] direct an offense and take part in some non-physical drills," Brown said. "He's engaged. He's with the team. He is just not doing anything physical." MCW's high turnovers and low percentages are already a challenge in category-based leagues, and his nebulous timetable after shoulder surgery makes him a shaky option with so many healthy PGs available on draft day.

Shabazz Muhammad (Achilles) returned to action on Tuesday with six points, one rebound and one steal in 18 minutes off the Wolves' bench.

Muhammad reported to training camp in great shape this year, after losing weight at the Wolves' request, but there's too much competition for minutes to expect him to hold fantasy value. In addition to veterans Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger, Shabazz is battling young guys like Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len (finger) practiced on Tuesday and expects to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

He fractured his pinkie in a fluke accident during training camp and will wear a protective brace, but it'll be great to see him on the court prior to the regular season. Len slots in as a backup C for the time being, and he's not yet part of the equation for standard-league owners.

Chris Kaman received three stitches on his head after being accidentally bitten by Nuggets C Timofey Mozgov.

Kaman said he felt "pretty good" after the game, but the Blazers tested him for a concussion and he's uncertain to play on Wednesday. He isn't holding the bizarre incident against Mozgov, either. "I went back pretty hard and I must've hit him in the chest," Kaman said. "He kind of folded over and his teeth went down on my head."
Oct 22 - 9:14 AM

J.J. Hickson (knee) returned to action on Tuesday, scoring four points with two rebounds in 15 minutes.

He took a seat after reaching his medical limit for playing time, and it's uncertain how long he'll face restrictions. The six-year veteran averaged 11.8 points, 9.2 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.7 blocks in favorable circumstances last year, and nobody needs to worry about him in standard leagues.

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.
Oct 22 - 2:34 AM

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.
Oct 22 - 1:43 AM

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.
