Shane Vereen Headshot

Update: There's a possibility that Shane Vereen's injury will not keep him out the remainder of the season.

Earlier reports stated that the triceps surgery Vereen needed was season-ending but the team is now backtracking. Regardless, the absence will be extensive and there is absolutely no reason to use up a roster spot stashing Vereen. Cut him loose and look to pick up either Orleans Darkwa or Paul Perkins.

Wilson Chandler Headshot

Wilson Chandler (hip) said Monday that he's fully healthy and has been taking part in five-on-five scrimmages for the past month.

Chandler was sidelined for all of last season after requiring surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip last November. The recovery has been encouraging, but you can expect the team to take it easy on Chandler for much of camp. You may also consider the fact that the Nuggets could impose an early-season minutes restriction, so monitor his progress through camp before expecting any sort of a return to his old form.

Anthony Johnson Headshot

Patriots are releasing DT Anthony Johnson.

Johnson is an expendable piece on defense and with the Patriots quarterback situation, a roster spot is much needed. No word on who will take Johnson's spot or whether the Patriots will try to re-sign him to the practice squad.

Carson Wentz Headshot

Doug Pederson says Carson Wentz's prep is 'Peyton Manning-ish'.

The hype train for Carson Wentz is moving faster than a speeding bullet and far too many pundits are penciling him in as the next great starting quarterback of the NFL. He's 66-for-102 in passing for 769 yards and five touchdowns. He hasn;t thrown an interception yet which is encouraging but for anyone to even mention his name in the same sentence as Peyton Manning, they are obviously far too prone to hyperbole for you to trust. He's playing well and it's encouraging, but that should be where you stop.

Joel Embiid Headshot

T.J. McConnell said Joel Embiid has been "flat out dominant" in scrimmages.

Why don't we just wait and see how Embiid holds up injury-wise before we anoint him as the next great center of the NBA. After missing his first two years in the NBA with foot issues, there are likely plenty of people in Philadelphia just champing at the bit, waiting for his return. If healthy, he should prove to be a strong fantasy asset, but let's actually see him on the court regularly before we get too worked up.
