Boban Marjanovic was diagnosed with a bone edema in his left ankle which will keep him from playing with Serbia during Eurobasket.

According to a Spurs medical release, the injury "compromises Marjanovic’s ability to play basketball without compromising long-term health." Marjanovic's agent disputed the reports on his Twitter account, but the Spurs have all the power in this situation and he is expected to be limited to non-contact work for eight weeks. Marjanovic will have a tough time fighting for minutes in San Antonio, so he isn't a target in standard leagues.

Boban Marjanovic (foot) won't play in EuroBasket 2015.

The Spurs have decided that they don't want their big man playing in the tournament as doctors have prescribed him to eight weeks of non-contact. Even when healthy, Marjanovic won't see many minutes for the stacked Spurs and is better off left untouched in standard fantasy leagues.

Josh Howard is working out in Las Vegas and is hoping to earn a training camp invite.

The 35-year-old hasn't played in the NBA since the 2012-13 season, so it's extremely unlikely that he'll have many NBA suitors. We'll keep an eye on this comeback story, but fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore Howard.

Boban Marjanovic (foot) is traveling to San Antonio in order to be re-evaluated by the Spurs.

No fracture has been revealed, but the Spurs will take a close at him anyways just to be safe. The massive 7'3" center is an exciting prospect, but minutes won't be easy to come by in San Antonio's stacked frontcourt. For now, Marjanovic isn't on the radar in standard leagues, but be sure to check back for an update on his foot.

Tony Parker said he's excited about San Antonio's reloaded roster.

With the additions of LaMarcus Aldridge and David West, the Spurs have propped open their championship window for at least another season and that fact is not lost on Parker. "It’s been an unbelievable summer for us," Parker said. "LaMarcus is going to help us a lot. I’m so happy that Manu and Timmy are back. And so we’re going for a last try, a last crack at it to try to win it all." While the Spurs are loaded, they may attempt to keep Parker rested for a playoff run so fantasy owners may want to steer clear of the 33-year-old until the late-mid rounds of drafts.

Tony Parker said he's "super excited" for the upcoming season.

"That’s why I can’t wait to start with the national team and make sure we take care of business, and then go to the Spurs and try to go back at it and try to get another ring," Parker said. "It’s been an unbelievable summer for us. LaMarcus is going to help us a lot. I’m so happy that Manu and Timmy are back. And so we’re going for a last try, a last crack at it to try to win it all." The Spurs are stacked and it may help keep Parker healthy. He's a risky mid-round fantasy target.

Boban Marjanovic could miss Eurobasket due to an issue with his foot, but he will fly to San Antonio this week in order to be re-evaluated.

Crvena Zvezda assistant coach Velibor Radovic claimed that Marjanovic played in the finals of the Serbian League with a fractured foot, but that report was vehemently denied by Serbian National Team head coach Sasha Djordjevic. "Boban Marjanovic doesn’t have health problems," Djordjevic said. "It was showed during the physicals in Milan with the Spurs and also by our medical staff. All results, from X-Rays to MRI were negative." Marjanovic has been pulled from Serbia's practices as a precaution, and he will travel to San Antonio this week in order to undergo another re-evaluation by the Spurs. It sounds like Marjanovic is fine, but we will update his status when we know more.

Kawhi Leonard is expected to join Team USA at their minicamp in Vegas this August.

Leonard didn't join up with Team USA for the past couple of years due to injuries and rest, but it sounds like that trend will come to an end. He recently signed a five-year deal worth more than $90 million, and it will be a lot of fun to see his game continue to grow in San Antonio. Leonard averaged 16.5 points, 7.2 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 blocks, 2.3 steals and 1.0 3-pointers per game last season, and if he can stay healthy he will continue to be an elite asset in fantasy leagues.

St. Bonaventure C Youssou Ndoye has agreed to a training camp deal with the Spurs.

Ndoye is a 7'0" center who posted averages of 11.8 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks during his senior season, but he is expected to play for the Austin Spurs in the NBA D-League next season. The Spurs have quite an eye for talent, so it will be interesting to see how Ndoye develops over the next couple of years. For now, Ndoye is not on the fantasy radar.

Nikola Milutinov will sign a three-year deal to play for Olympiacos of Greece.

The Spurs are absolutely loaded right now, so it makes a lot of sense to keep Milutinov overseas for now. We will be watching his progress closely, but it looks like it will be a while before he makes his way to the NBA.

Nikola Milutinov is negotiating a contract with Olympiacos in Greece.

The Spurs have made it pretty clear that Milutinov won't make the jump to the NBA next season, so he will have to gain some more experience overseas. The 20-year-old center has a lot of potential, but he probably won't be with the Spurs in the Tim Duncan era.

Jimmer Fredette officially signed with the Spurs on Thursday.

Fredette owns career-averages of 6.1 points on 41.2 percent shooting from the field. He may be someone to consider in daily leagues on the days the Spurs rest their starting lineup, but there's no reason to draft him in any league.

LaMarcus Aldridge said he and the Knicks mutually decided to cancel his free agent visit with the team.

While saying the Knicks wanted him to do something he didn't want to in exclusively playing center, Aldridge said the two sides mutually decided to cancel their meeting. "They didn’t want to meet with me," Aldridge said. "Some people said it was me. But it was both parties agreeing that we shouldn’t meet." While it's tough to question team president Phil Jackson and his 11 championship rings, this seems like a strange move for a Knicks team starved for a big splash in free agency.

LaMarcus Aldridge said his free agency meetings with the Lakers weren't as bad as had been reported.

While it was widely reported that Aldridge's first meeting with the Lakers didn't go well, the 30-year-old said those reports were a bit exaggerated. "It was just the [first] meeting didn’t go as well as I wanted it to, so I did another one," Aldridge said. "People blew it out of proportion about things happening in the meeting. That wasn’t correct. It just didn’t go as good as I wanted it to so I had one more." While Aldridge may see a small dip in his production in San Antonio, he's still worth an early-round fantasy selection for the 2015-16 season.

Jimmer Fredette is finalizing a deal to be with the Spurs for training camp.

The deal is expected to include some guaranteed money. The Spurs lost some of their backcourt depth with Cory Joseph headed to Toronto and Marco Belinelli in Sacramento, so Jimmer could make the team.
