The Braves are waiting to see how Jason Heyward (sore neck) feels during BP before setting their lineup.
If Heyward is absent from the starting lineup, expect to see Jordan Schafer take his place in right field for this afternoon's game. This does not appear to be an injury that will result in an extended absence from the starting lineup, so fantasy owners need not look too far into this situation. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
