Denzel Valentine Headshot

Denzel Valentine believes he'll play in season opener Thursday.

Valentine may suit up for the Bulls, but his minutes will be extremely limited. For a rookie to miss the preseason and a team with numerous veterans, it will be difficult for Valentine to crack the rotation any time soon. Fantasy owners can avoid this situation.

Bojan Bogdanovic Headshot

Bogdan Bogdanovic will miss the next 2-to-3 weeks due to a sprained ankle.

This is frustrating for fantasy owners as the forward finished the opener with 21 points which included three 3-pointers to go along with five rebounds and a steal in 23 minutes. It will be interesting to see how the Nets handle their small forward position now with Randy Foye dealing with a hamstring injury, but the early indication would be Sean Kilpatrick earning more minutes as he finished with 13 points in 22 minutes in the opener.

Ben Simmons Headshot

Ben Simmons (foot) says there's been no talk of being shut down for the season and team officials have said January is a possibility.

At least the rookie should get some playing experience in his first season. However, he won’t have much fantasy upside until possibly the last month or so of the year. Fantasy owners can avoid Simmons unless they are in a dynasty or keeper league.

Alex Len Headshot

Alex Len will come off the bench Wednesday.

Last season, Len averaged nine points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Len and Tyson Chandler should serve as a formidable duo in the paint for the Phoenix Suns. His production in the points department may be limited, but if all goes well, he'll average close to 10 rebounds per game this season.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson will come off the bench Wednesday.

Regardless of whether or not he starts, Clarkson is going to get his fair share of minutes. The guard averaged 15.5 points per game last season, but fantasy owners need to understand he doesn't do much outside of the points department. He's still a reliable fantasy asset, so don't look too much into the label of starter or sixth man.

Nick Young Headshot

Nick Young is in the Lakers starting lineup Wednesday.

Young is a more than adequate from long range and he will get the luxury of playing with the starting unit in the season opener. Jordan Clarkson is still the more valuable fantasy asset, but we can't ignore the fact that Young is the one getting the nod in the starting five.

Tyson Chandler Headshot

Tyson Chandler is in the Suns starting lineup Wednesday.

The big man is a solid veteran center, but the fact remains that he just can't stay healthy. He still has the ability to rack up double-doubles often, but his aging body just doesn't hang up most of the season. He's a middle-of-the-road option at the position.

Mirza Teletovic Headshot

Mirza Teletovic came off the bench to start the second half

Teletovic opened the game as the starter, but it wasn't planned for him to be in the role for long. However, many probably expected it would be more than just one half. His fantasy value is very limited and he will likely continue to start off and on until Tony Snell returns to a full workload.
