J.J. Nelson ARI WR
Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Questionable for Monday's game1h ago
J.J. Nelson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cowboys.
Nelson's injury designation indicates he is not 100 percent heading into Week 3, but he was able to practice on a limited basis from Thursday through Saturday, so it remains to be seen if he will be slowed at all once game time rolls around. Nelson stepped up last week in a big way with fellow wide receiver John Brown (quad) out, and as long as he plays Monday, he will have an opportunity to back up that showing with Brown out for a second week in a row.
Arthur Maulet NO CB
Saints' Arthur Maulet: Lands on 53-man roster1h ago
Arthur Maulet was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.
With the New Orleans Saints thin in the secondary, Maulet has a chance to contribute Sunday. Regardless of whether he is asked to play with the defensive unit or special teams, Maulet holds minimal fantasy value entering Sunday's game.
Kendall Langford NO DE
Kendall Langford: Let go by New Orleans1h ago
Kendall Langford was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.
Langford's release reflects the Saints pursuit of added secondary depth for Sunday's contest. There's a chance he'll be re-signed after Sunday, but until then he's free to sign anywhere.
Darryl Tapp NO DE
Darryl Tapp: Cut by Saints1h ago
Darryl Tapp was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.
Tapp signed with New Orleans just three days ago so the dismissal is a bit perplexing. The initial thought here is that Tapp might find his way back onto the roster following Sunday's contest. Tapp was released to help reinforce a thin secondary.
D.J. Humphries ARI T
Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Out for Sunday's game1h ago
D.J. Humphries (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
His projected absence will mark the second consecutive game he has missed. The injury was said to keep Humphries out for a maximum of two weeks, so it's likely he'll make a return in Week 4.
Tank Carradine SF DE
49ers' Tank Carradine: Out 4-6 weeks with high ankle sprain2h ago
Tank Carradine (ankle) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While not great news, the San Francisco 49ers have to be exhaling some sighs of relief Saturday. There were rumblings of a possible season-ending injury prior to the MRI results, so 4-6 weeks seems like a much better outlook when putting things into perspective. In the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas should be the primary beneficiary.
Jarrett Parker SF LF
Giants' Jarrett Parker: Out versus southpaw39m ago
Jarrett Parker is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Parker will head to the bench for a second straight contest as the San Francisco Giants continue to limit his opportunities against left-handed pitchers. Gorkys Hernandez will start in left field Saturday against Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Enrique Hernandez LAD CF
Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Earns start Saturday39m ago
Enrique Hernandez is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Hernandez is the rare hitter with an eye-popping track record against Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner, but he is indeed 13-for-27 (.481) with four doubles and three home runs against Bumgarner in his career. Those numbers earned Hernandez a start Saturday, and he will man left field while hitting third in the Los Angeles Dodgers ' batting order.
Cody Bellinger LAD 1B
Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Day off Saturday41m ago
Cody Bellinger is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Bellinger is fresh off hitting a home run that gave him the all-time record for NL rookies, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are loading up on right-handed hitters Saturday against Giants ace and southpaw Madison Bumgarner, so Bellinger will be held out in favor of Kyle Farmer.
Shawn Kelley WAS RP
Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Headed for more tests42m ago
Manager Dusty Baker said Shawn Kelley is dealing with inflammation and nerve trouble in his forearm, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Kelley is set to get more extensive tests done on his arm after exiting Friday's game with an injury. The good news is the issue doesn't appear to be in the Tommy John area, but not much else is known beyond that. An update on his status should be available once his test results are disclosed.
Justin Turner LAD 3B
Dodgers' Justin Turner: Remains out Saturday45m ago
Justin Turner (thumb) is not in the lineup Saturday for the second straight day, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Turner was held out Friday after suffering a bruised thumb the day before, and with the Los Angeles Dodgers needing only a couple wins to lock up home-field advantage in the postseason, it's likely he will not play Saturday either. Logan Forsythe will make another start at third base in Turner's place.
Ketel Marte ARI SS
Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Out of lineup Saturday1h ago
Ketel Marte is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.
Marte will head to the bench for a breather after starting five straight games for the Arizona Diamondbacks , going 5-for-19 over that stretch. Adam Rosales will start at shortstop and bat eighth in his place.
Enes Kanter OKC C
Thunder's Enes Kanter: Sent to Knicks in trade for Carmelo Anthony5h ago
Enes Kanter was sent to the Knicks alongside Doug McDermott in a trade for Carmelo Anthony on Saturday, Adrian Wojnawrowski of ESPN reports.
With this trade to the Knicks, Kanter has the potential to become the starting center, competing with Willy Hernangomez and Joakim Noah. He could also see some time at power forward, backing up Kristaps Porzingis. In his final season with the Oklahoma City Thunder , Kanter averaged 14.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per game across 72 games.
Doug McDermott OKC F
Knicks' Doug McDermott: Sent to New York in trade for Carmelo Anthony5h ago
Doug McDermott has been sent to New York, alongside Enes Kanter, in exchange for Carmelo Anthony, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
McDermott spent just 22 games with the Thunder after being traded from the Bulls, and averaged 9.0 points, and 2.7 rebounds in 2016-17 across his time with both teams. In his three seasons, he has been impressive as a deep threat and as a scorer, but lacks defensively. With the New York Knicks , he may see a bigger role, as he'll face much less competition for playing time than he would have with Oklahoma City in 2017-18. There will likely be more updates on his role in the Knicks rotation going forward.
Carmelo Anthony NY F
Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Traded to Oklahoma City5h ago
The New York Knicks have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a future draft pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
It has been long expected that Anthony would be traded, but it is a surprise that Oklahoma City is where he will finally be traded to. With the recent acquisition of Paul George, he will likely see time at both small forward and power forward, as he did in New York. The 13 year veteran will add not only experience, but another strong scoring option to play around with. While his production will likely take a small hit due to the offensive threats of Russell Westbrook and Paul George around him, it shouldn't be forgotten that Anthony averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 34.3 minutes per game in 74 appearances in his final year with the Knicks.
Alan Williams PHO F
Suns' Alan Williams: Suffers partially torn meniscus23h ago
Alan Williams ' initial diagnosis has revealed he suffered a partially torn meniscus, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
Williams' timetable for return likely won't be determined until after his MRI on Saturday, though it's safe to assume he'll be out an extended period. As a result, other big men on the team such as Alex Len, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could all see additional time at center. Though, the actual rotation at the position will probably be hammered out during training camp and the preseason.
Troy Daniels PHO G
Suns' Troy Daniels: Traded to Phoenix23h ago
Troy Daniels was traded to the Phoenix Suns from the Grizzlies on Friday along with a conditional 2018 second-round pick in exchange for a top-55 protected 2018 second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Daniels played a significant role on the Grizzlies last season, posting 8.2 points across 17.7 minutes per game on 38.9 percent shooting from beyond the arc. He'll be joining a Suns team devoid of significant shooting guard depth and will seemingly compete with Elijah Millsap for the No. 2 spot behind Devin Booker. That said, it doesn't seem likely he'll see a bump in workload meaningful enough to warrant fantasy ownership in most leagues, as developing Booker is the Suns' main objective at the position.
Alan Williams PHO F
Suns' Alan Williams: To undergo MRI Saturday23h ago
Alan Williams suffered an injury while landing on a teammate's foot during a workout Friday and will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the extent of the damage, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
While the full extent of Williams' injury is yet to be determined, the fact that the Phoenix Suns have decided an MRI is necessary doesn't bode particularly well. The big man notably ended 2016-17 on a high note, posting 11.4 points and 9.1 rebounds across 22.6 minutes per game after the All-Star break. If he's out for an extended period, Alex Len is likely the immediate candidate to absorb Williams' minutes. Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could also see time at center in smaller, quicker lineups.
Kris Letang PIT D
Penguins' Kris Letang: He's baaack2h ago
Kris Letang (neck) will make an appearance in Sunday's exhibition home contest against the Blues, theScore reports.
There should be pandemonium the moment that Letang gets spotted in front of the home crowd at PPG Paints Arena. The prolific puck-pushing defenseman hasn't seen game action since Feb. 21, but the newly minted alternate captain worked hard in the offseason in order to get clearance for training camp. Letang produced five goals, 29 assists and 14 points with the man advantage last season, but he missed out on the playoffs which culminated in the team's second Stanley Cup victory in as many years.
Tom Wilson WAS RW
Capitals' Tom Wilson: Receives two-game preseason ban2h ago
Tom Wilson has been suspended for two preseason games for his hit on Blues forward Robert Thomas in Friday's exhibition match.
As noted in the report, this was the first official safety ruling made by former NHL enforcer George Parros, who was recently hired in as the new Head of the Department of Player Safety. Upon further review, it was confirmed that Wilson had more than a full second to avoid the hit on Thomas, who had lost control of the puck along the side boards before getting drilled. There will only be two games left on the preseason docket for Wilson by the time he's eligible to return.
Tom Sestito PIT LW
Penguins' Tom Sestito: Making progress3h ago
Tom Sestito (undisclosed) is progressing, per Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
The scrappy winger sustained his injury last Friday in a collision with teammate Ryan Reaves. We'll consider him day-to-day.
Patric Hornqvist PIT RW
Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Progressing from ailment4h ago
Patric Hornqvist (hand) is making progress, according to Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
The bench boss didn't divulge any specifics on Hornqvist (at least in terms of what was mentioned in the report), but there's been nothing to suggest that the utility winger is in danger of missing Opening Night on Oct. 4. Draft him as you normally would.
Filip Chytil NYR C
Rangers' Filip Chytil: Dealing with groin strain4h ago
Filip Chytil is dealing with a groin strain that will keep him out of Saturday's preseason contest versus the Devils, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports, adding that the Czech skater will practice Monday.
The European Elite prospect was taken 21st overall by the Blueshirts in this year's draft. Every bit of training camp action is crucial for the 18-year-old, but the team's executives know better than to rush him back before he's ready.
Colin McDonald PHI RW
Flyers' Colin McDonald: Has unspecified lower-body issue4h ago
Colin McDonald is dealing with a lower-body injury, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.
He's a journeyman who's been a chronic shuffler about the organizational ranks. There's no word as to the severity of his injury, so he's day-to-day by default.
