10/17:Denver Nuggets shooting guard/small forward Will Barton suffered an ankle injury during practice on Monday, leaving his status for the team's season-opening matchup against the Utah Jazz in doubt. Barton averaged 13 points per game last season and was listed behind small forward Wilson Chandler on the depth chart. In his absence, forward Juancho Hernangomez and point guard Jamal Murray will likely see expanded minutes.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Gina Mizzell
10/17:The Detroit Pistons have waived veteran point guard Beno Udrih. The move, which isn't surprising, came after the team has re-signed him during the offseason. This may be it for the journeyman as he had hinted at calling it a career to pursue a career in coaching. The 35-year old has appeared in 831 games over his 13 year career, averaging 8 points per game during that span.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Associated Press
10/17:The Memphis Grizzlies have waived point guard Wade Baldwin. The move came as a result the team cutting down the roster to the maximum 15 players but was somewhat surprising nonetheless. Baldwin was drafted by the team in the 2016 NBA Draft in the first round (17th overall) and appeared in 33 games. Though he did have a few bouts of efficient play, his three points per game wasn't enough to keep him fantasy relevant on a consistent basis. The team also waived small forward Rade Zagorac, who played overseas and was drafted in 2016.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Ronald Tillery
10/17:The Chicago Bulls have waived small forward/shooting guard Jarell Eddie and center Diamond Stone. Eddie has played three seasons in the league, spending time bouncing between various G-League and NBA teams throughout his career. Stone, who also has stints with various clubs since being drafted in 2016, will once again find himself looking for a new home. The team also announced the signing of point guard Kay Felder, who was recently traded from Cleveland to Atlanta and was subsequently released soon after. While appearing in 42 games for the Cavs last season, Felder averaged four points and one assist per game.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: NBA
10/17:San Antonio Spurs power forward LaMarcus Aldridge signed a three-year, $72.3 million contract extension. The deal will keep the five-time all-star in San Antonio until the end of the 2021 season. Despite reported unhappiness and trade rumors throughout his tenure with the Spurs, both he and the team appear to be on the same page. Aldridge has seen his numbers drop since his days in Portland but is still one of the most respected names in the league. His career averages of 19 points, eights boards and a block would make him a welcome addition to any fantasy squad.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski.

10/16:Boston Celtics power forward Marcus Morris (knee) will be out for "the coming week-plus," according to head coach Brad Stevens. Nonetheless, with what is being described as "general soreness," Morris will not play when the team opens the season against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night. He will be re-evaluated in the coming weeks to determine when he will be ready to go. Morris, who was acquired from the Detroit Pistons during the offseason, averaged 14 points and four boards a season ago. Rookie Forward Jayson Tatum could start at the four on Tuesday night with Power forward Guerschon Yabusele, who was drafted by the team in 2016, seeing more minutes off the bench in Morris' absence.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Chris Forsberg
10/16:Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James (ankle) may not play on Tuesday night against the Boston Celtics. James injured his ankle in practice at the end of September and has been dealing with the ailment since. Though he played 30 minutes against the Chicago Bulls in preseason play, he is still not at 100 percent. Power forward/small forward Jae Crowder could move and start at the three with small forward Kyle Korver, who joined the team last season, likely coming off the bench if James is unable to play.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Tom Whithers

10/16:San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard (thigh) won't play on Wednesday night when the team opens the season against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Leonard has been dealing with the injury for quite some time and missed the preseason while rehabbing. Small forward Kyle Anderson, who averaged three points per game last season and small forward Rudy Gay, who signed with the team this past offseason, will likely see expanded minutes in his absence. Without a return date set in stone, this is obviously not good news for a team that is looking to compete in a stacked Western Conference.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Spain

10/11:Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Paul George played big minutes during preseason play on Tuesday. George logged 35 minutes in the win over the Denver Nuggets, scoring 19 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. He also showcased improved range, going 5-for-9 from beyond the arch. Though George is getting older and has seen a good amount of minutes in the league, he is showing no signs on slowing down, averaging nearly 24 points last season, the best of his career. He has stayed relatively injury free throughout his career for the most part and should see a significant amount of time on the court due to Oklahoma City's lack of bench depth. With durability, efficient scoring and improved shooting from behind the three-point line, George is a welcome asset to any fantasy team.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/10:Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon continued his efficient three-point ways on Monday. In the win over the New York Knicks, Gordon scored 18 points over 27 minutes and was also hot from beyond the arch, going 4-for-7 from downtown. Though Gordon will continue to come off the bench behind shooting guard/point guard James Harden, he still has value. He has logged a lot of miles throughout his nine years in the league but still continues to produce, especially since he has been given the green light from head coach Mike D'Antoni to shoot, and shoot some more. Gordon won't fly off the boards at upcoming drafts but if he is available, especially towards the later rounds, fantasy owners may want to think twice about passing him over.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
10/10:Houston Rockets center Clint Capela played well during Monday's preseason win over the New York Knicks. Capela started, playing 26 minutes on the night. He had 19 points on an efficient 7-for-11 from the field and threw in nine boards to compliment his points total. Capela has steadily progessed since coming into the league, averaging 12 points and eight boards over 65 games last season. However, he has dealt with various injuries throughout his brief career and has seen his fantasy stock fall a bit as a result. Nonetheless, if he can stay healthy, he is definitely a guy that anyone should want on their fantasy roster.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
10/10:Houston Rockets point guard/shooting guard James Harden played an uncomfortably long 37 minutes in the preseason win over the New York Knicks. The MVP runner-up had 36 points on 13-for-21 shooting from the field. He also demonstrated improvement in his range, shooting an efficient 50 percent on 14 shots from beyond the arch. However, he did have some control issues, turning the ball over seven times but made amends by adding 11 assists, nine boards and two steals to his stats total. Harden looked even scarier than he did last season and even though it is only preseason, he will still see numbers similar during the regular season to what he had on Monday. If you have the first pick in your upcoming draft, you will have your hands full in deciding whether to take Harden or reigning MVP, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. However, if he can keep draining the three, Harden will have a slight edge, especially in leagues that reward for efficienct play in certain areas.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

10/10:Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz looked impressive during Monday's matchup against Boston. The rookie, who was selected number one overall in the 2017 NBA draft, played 24 minutes off the bench and scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting. He also threw in two boards and two assists in the loss. However, he did have some ball security issues, turning the ball over four times and looked uncomfortably awkward from the free throw line, shooting only 40 percent on 2-for-5 shooting from the stripe. Nonetheless, he has gotten off to a relatively good start and his play thus far is an encouraging sign that he will make a welcome addition to any fantasy squad this upcoming season.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
10/10:Philadelphia 76ers power forward Dario Saric got the start in Monday's loss to the Celtics. Saric played 20 minutes on the night but had a rough time getting his shots to fall, going an unimpressive 4-for-10 from the field. He also shot an inefficient 20 percent from beyond the arch and finished the game with an underwhelming nine points. Saric, who was a favorite to win rookie of the year last season, averaged nearly 13 points and six boards over 81 games last season so don't let his horrific play against Boston scare you the least. In addition too his stellar play, he can get hot at times from behind the three point line which should make him desirable for any fantasy squad this season.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
10/10:Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor got some minutes in Monday's loss to the Boston Celtics. Okafor started the game, scoring six points over 21 minutes of action. He also five boards and a block to add to his stats total on the night. Though he was the topic of trade talks all of last season, Okafor will likely see his role expand, at least in the short term, due to the absence of center Richaun Holmes, who is expected to miss up to six weeks with a wrist injury. He is a risky pick from a fantasy standpoint but if he can make the most of his minutes while Holmes is out, he could see a bigger workload as the season progresses.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
