Okafor made his preseason debut this past Friday, playing eight minutes against the Miami Heat, but Okafor believes he is ready to start ramping up his activity and playing time. He believes he'll be ready for opening night, and it looks as if he's right -- although it may be in limited fashion. His minutes will likely be built up until he can play in the mid-20's. For now, Joel Embiid is the big man to own in Philly.
Zeller (bruised right knee) is questionable for opening night and it appears Roy Hibbert will start in his place. How long can he stay in the starting lineup? Not long. As soon as Zeller's up to full speed, he'll take his spot back and is a low-end fantasy big man.
Evans struggled with a shoulder injury this preseason and failed to score in two appearances. He was never expected to be a part of the rotation.
KAT's rookie year was pretty legendary, and he's all setup to have an incredible sophomore season under head coach Tom Thibodeau. He's going to cost you a top-5 pick if you want him.
Andrew Wiggins' fourth year option was also picked up, so the Bounce Bros get at least one more year together. LaVine was impressive after the All-Star break last season, compiling averages of 16.4 points, 2.8 assists, 2.4 triples and 1.2 steals per contest on 48.0 percent shooting, so he makes sense as a mid-round target on draft day.
Wiggins declared himself "good to go" despite no officialy word coming from the team yet. Wiggins is set to lead a very young Minnesota team into 2016.
Okafor played in limited action in Philadelphia's preseason finale on Friday night. He'll likely play in Wednesday's opener against Oklahoma City, but he'll probably be held to under 20 minutes of action. Because of the injury he's slated to come off the bench while Joel Embiid and Dario Saric will be in the starting rotation to begin the year.
The 2005 2nd overall draft pick has been battling a finger injury during the preseason that has forced him to miss a few games, but he will be ready in time for Charlotte's first game on the road in Milwaukee.
Former Boston Celtic Jared Sullinger will have to miss some time with a foot injury. Injuries haven't allowed him to progress in his young career, but while he has been on the court he has shown that he can be productive.
After losing a few bench options last year the Warriors think they have found someone who can score off the bench. The former 1st round pick has been limited due to hip surgeries, but he looks like he is ready to go this year for the Warriors.
