Marcus Morris Headshot

X rays taken on the right ring finger of Marcus Morris were negative.

Morris is likely dealing with a sprain to his right ring finger and this should not be a problem once the regular season starts for Detroit. Morris is a late-round flier for your fantasy squad.

P.J. Hairston Headshot

P.J. Hairston has signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Houston Rockets.

Hairston has a chance to play himself into a roster spot with Houston but he'll be buried on the depth chart behind the likes of Eric Gordon and Corey Brewer. This may not be the best fit for both sides but we'll have to see how it plays out.

Ben Simmons Headshot

Ben Simmons saw some minutes at point guard during Wednesday's scrimmage.

Simmons is a great talent with the only real knock on him during college was his inconsistent shooting. Despite his size he certainly has the handles to play some guard if the 76ers find themselves running a bigger lineup on the court with the likes of Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Simmons all positioning for two front court spots.

Thon Maker Headshot

Thon Maker suffered a sprained right wrist in opening practice Tuesday. and was sent back to Milwaukee to be evaluated.

It's safe to say that this is not the way the Bucks expected things to go for Maker in their opening practice of training camp. He's been sent back to Milwaukee in order to be evaluated for a sprained wrist, and we should know more about the injury in the next couple of days. The Bucks selected the 19-year-old with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and his pro career is not off to a great start.

Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Jahlil Okafor was limited in practice Wednesday with right knee soreness.

The 76ers have been actively trying to trade either Okafor or Nerlens Noel this offseason so this injury is not exactly ideal should they be currently negotiating any deals. Okafor had a solid rookie year in 2015, averaging 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.

Elfrid Payton Headshot

Elfrid Payton's practice status is day-to-day because of a strained hip flexor.

Payton strained his left hip flexor during the practice on Tuesday. He sat out the last 40 minutes. On Wednesday, head coach Frank Vogel said his practice status "day-to-day" which means Payton's timetable to return is completely up in the air. Vogel earlier this off-season said he is anticipating a "heck of a year" from the third-year point guard. If his shooting stroke has improved, Payton could have a big year in Orlando, assuming he outplays D.J. Augustin

Dante Exum Headshot

Dante Exum (knee) said he has no limitations heading into training camp.

Exum has been cleared for full activities for awhile so now it’s a matter of getting into playing shape after missing all of last year. The guard will be used off the bench so his fantasy value is limited and can be avoided in drafts.

Jake Layman Headshot

Jake Layman didn't practice Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury.

More information will be known later, but not good for a rookie trying to carve out a role on a team to miss any amount of time. At this point, it doesn’t appear Layman will be a fantasy option and fantasy owners can avoid this situation.
