George Hill (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

Hill left Tuesday's game with a knee contusion and the Pacers opted to hold him out for the rest of the game. With the regular season about to start, the team has no reason to rush him back, so they'll simply take it day by day. But in truth, they'll probably just hold him out to give him some additional time to heal. He'll be ready to go once the season opens.

Joakim Noah’s knee will be an "issue' all season, according to a source.

Noah's minutes have been restricted this preseason, but that didn't seem to mean much until this news broke. The veteran said he will be wearing a knee brace all season, so there is certainly cause for concern even though a regular season game has yet to be played. Don't be surprised if Chicago gives Noah routine games off throughout the year in hope of keeping his knee fresh.

Coach Steve Kerr says Warriors guard Shaun Livingston (toe) is 'highly doubtful' for the season opener.

Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his big toe in mid-August and was expected to miss up to two months. He still isn't ready to go and thus, will miss next week's season opener against Sacramento. The 29-year-old veteran is expected to backup both shooting guard Klay Thompson and point guard Stephen Curry this year.

Update: Portland C Chris Kaman (head laceration) is questionable to return to Tuesday's game.

It wouldn't be surprising if Kaman misses the remainder of Tuesday's game considering that it's a preseason game and we are just one week from the opening night of NBA regular season action. We should have an update on Kaman sometime on Wednesday, but you can read up on his projections for the 2014-15 season the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Kaman got bumped in the head and suffered a laceration. His return to Tuesday night's game is questionable.

Brandon Rush is out indefinitely after an MRI exam revealed a sacral stress reaction.

Rush has been battling a back issue for the past few days, but attempted to play through it. Now he is looking at being out of action for at least the next couple of weeks, but it could end up being even longer. He's slated for a backup role this year and has seen time at both shooting guard and small forward this preseason.

Andre Bogut (illness) will not play on Tuesday.

The solid source of blocks and rebounds is out on Tuesday with a stomach bug. Consider Bogut day-to-day for now, but he should be ready to go for the start of the season.

George Hill has a left knee contusion and did not return to Tuesday's game.

With the regular season looming, the Pacers may choose to let Hill's bruise heal over the next week in hope that he's ready to go for their first game of the year. This isn't an injury that should keep him out of action very long, so consider him day-to-day for now.

Alex Len (finger) will not play Tuesday, but he does plan to return to action Wednesday night against the Clippers.

The Suns' backup center has been out of action for two weeks with a fractured pinky finger but appears ready to get back into game action on Wednesday night. The second year player logged just 8.9 minutes per game in 2013-14, but should see an uptick this season. As of now, he shouldn't be on fantasy radars.
