Marc Gasol Headshot

Marc Gasol (foot) will be on a minutes restriction as the season starts.

At his advanced age, there is no reason to push him early on, especially with his foot injury lingering throughout the preseason. Zach Randolph is likely to see an uptick in minutes early on, while Brandan Wright will see more time once he gets healthy.

Tiago Splitter Headshot

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) was able to take part in individual drills on Monday.

Splitter – healthy or not – will hold no fantasy value going forward. You can move along without worrying about his availability status on a daily basis.

Brandan Wright Headshot

Brandan Wright (ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's regular season opener.

Wright will be serving as Marc Gasol's immediate backup this season, however to start out the season his ankle flare will leave him out of a uniform. Deyonta Davis and Zach Randolph will see an uptick in minutes during Wright's absence.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris (groin) took part in practice Monday.

This is a surprising turn of events considering he partially tore his groin under a month ago. Remain wary about his health going forward regardless of his early season availability.

Dario Saric Headshot

Dario Saric (face) will be evaluated Tuesday and is expected to practice.

Saric has struggled during the preseason and this injury doesn't do much to help his chances of getting legitimate playing time during the regular season. Avoid him in all formats.

Brian Roberts Headshot

Brian Roberts (hamstring) likely to be inactive Wednesday.

This should be no matter for fantasy owners, as Roberts is unlikely to ever serve as a legitimate fantasy contributor.

Michael Beasley Headshot

Michael Beasley (elbow) returned to practice on Monday.

Beasley joins this talented Bucks roster as a go to scoring option off the bench. His elbow injury shouldn't hamper that expectation too much, he just will likely operate under lower minutes for the first game or two while the issue clears itself up.

Derrick Jones Headshot

Undrafted rookie Derrick Jones will be on the Suns' opening night roster.

Jones is a young project player, who might just be the best dunker in the NBA that no one has ever heard of. He will be a depth player on the bench, hopefully learning the nuances of the game.

Anthony Brown Headshot

Anthony Brown was waived by the Lakers on Monday.

It's surprising to me that Brown and recently signed Yi Jianlian were cut in favor of enigmatic veteran Metta World Peace – a player who hasn't contributed statistically in quite some time now. That really explains a lot about the direction of this Lakers franchise.

Josh McRoberts Headshot

Josh McRoberts (foot) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

McRoberts hasn't been healthy for the better part of the last couple of years. It will be interesting to see what he can contribute to this Heat roster that is suddenly desperate for talent and versatile offensive production.
