      Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Out of World Cup with ankle injury
      1d ago

      Kuzma, due to a left ankle injury suffered prior to Saturday's exhibition loss to Australia, will be forced to withdraw from the FIBA World Cup, the Associated Press reports.

      The injury is only considered "soreness", so it doesn't seem like Kuzma is in any danger of missing the start of training camp. Heading into 2019-20, he'll look to continue building on strong rookie and sophomore campaigns.

      Lakers' Dwight Howard: Finalizing move to Lakers
      2d ago

      Howard is on the verge of reaching a buyout with the Grizzlies and plans to sign a contract with the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the deal will be non-guaranteed, as the Lakers need Howard to "show he's made changes in how he conducts himself." Lakers players were also reportedly involved in the process.

      Howard shores up the Lakers' center depth following the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to an ACL tear. Howard appeared in just nine games last season due to a lower-back/glute injury. He played well in 2017-18, averaging 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.3 assists in 30.4 minutes. That said, it seems unlikely Howard will see that kind of a role during his age 33 season. Assuming Howard's deal ends up guaranteed, he'll be competing for minutes with Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee at center. Kyle Kuzma and LeBron James could spent spot minutes at the position as well. Given the nature of the contract, the marriage between the Lakers and Howard could fall apart quickly, but there is certainly fantasy upside for Howard if the relationship ends up being tenable.

      Timberwolves' Robert Covington: To be ready for camp
      3d ago

      Covington is "on course" to be ready for training camp, Dane Moore of Zone Coverage reports.

      Covington ended up missing extended time after coming over from Philadelphia as part of the Jimmy Butler deal, and his season officially ended on a sour note, as he underwent surgery late in the regular season. All indications are that the versatile, three-and-D wing will be back in the fold by the time training camp rolls around, and he'll make for an appealing fantasy asset as the expected starter at power forward. However, the knee injury means Covington, who averaged 2.1 steals in 35 games last season, will carry some increased injury risk.

      Bucks' Donte DiVincenzo: 'Feeling 100 percent'

      DiVincenzo is back at full strength after dealing with a heel injury near the end of his rookie season, Delaware Online reports.

      In an interview with a local outlet in his home state of Delaware, DiVincenzo said he's "100 percent" after battling the heel injury for the last several months. After finding himself in the regular rotation early on, DiVincenzo played in only four games after Jan. 1, and he did not appear in any of Milwaukee's postseason contests. The second-year guard will look to work his way back into the mix when camp begins next month, but he'll face stiff competition for minutes from Wes Matthews, Pat Connaughton, Kyle Korver, Sterling Brown and George Hill.

      Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Back to working out

      Ball (ankle) has resumed workouts in preparation for the 2019-20 season.

      The No. 2 overall pick in 2017 has been hampered by ankle injuries in each of his first two years in the league -- the most recent of which kept him out for the final three months of last season. While Ball, whose last game came against Houston on Jan. 19, endured a lengthy recovery process, he was back on the floor earlier this week going through shooting and ball-handling drills at what looked to be full speed. The 21-year-old should be at 100 percent health by the time training camp rolls around, and he'll look to secure a spot in the new-look Pelicans' starting five.

      Grizzlies' Dwight Howard: Drawing interest from Lakers
      6d ago

      The Lakers are expected to request permission from the Grizzlies to meet with Howard regarding a potential union, league sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

      After Memphis acquired his rights from Washington in July, Howard is on the Grizzlies' books for the 2019-20 campaign, but the team is expected to release him before the upcoming season. Since Memphis recognizes that Howard isn't part of their future plans, the organization may just be doing him a favor by allowing him to meet with Los Angeles, which has clear need for added depth at center after DeMarcus Cousins (knee) suffered a season-ending ACL tear in a workout last week. Howard apparently has interest in rejoining the Lakers, with whom he spent a tumultuous 2012-13 campaign. Now 33 years old and returning from back surgery, Howard likely wouldn't be asked to play major minutes behind JaVale McGee, who would presumably start at center if the Lakers commit to using Anthony Davis as a power forward.

      Nuggets' Bol Bol: Back to full strength
      6d ago

      Bol (foot) said he's fully recovered from the foot injury that sidelined him for much of his freshman season at Oregon, Jim Slater of the Associated Press reports. "Everything is perfect. Everything has fully healed," Bol said. "I've been working out in the morning and coming back at night."

      While concerns about the foot -- as well as Bol's work ethic -- caused the 19-year-old to tumble all the way to the middle of the second round on draft night, Bol is one of the more tantalizing rookies in the 2019 class. A rare combination of size and fluidity, Bol averaged 21.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in nine collegiate contests, and he hit 52 percent of his three-point attempts. Bol may struggle to find consistent opportunity on a deep Nuggets roster, but he's nonetheless a name to keep an eye on in dynasty formats. "With his length and ability to protect the rim and stretch the floor, it's a pretty rare combination," Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said of Bol. "We think his skillset, his pedigree, who he is as a guy, will fit in well in the locker room."

      Lakers' DeMarcus Cousins: ACL tear confirmed
      10d ago

      Cousins' agent, Jeff Schwartz, confirmed Thursday that his client suffered a torn ACL to his left knee and could miss the entire 2019-20 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Shams Charania of The Athletic was first to relay the news of Cousins' latest health setback, citing league sources. Cousins suffered the injury during a workout Monday in Las Vegas, where he "bumped knees" with another player and was forced to leave the court. There is no timeline for Cousins to undergo surgery, but once the procedure is completed, he'll face another extended rehab from his third serious leg injury in the last year and a half. Cousins missed nearly a full calendar year due to a left Achilles tear suffered in January 2018, then tore his quadriceps tendon in the same leg this past April during the playoffs. With Cousins out of the mix for most or all of the upcoming campaign, Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee will likely cover nearly all the minutes at center for the Lakers.

      Lakers' DeMarcus Cousins: Suffers torn ACL
      10d ago

      Cousins sustained a torn ACL in his left knee during a workout earlier this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

      Cousins returned in mid-January from a torn left Achilles' tendon and went on to play 30 regular-season and eight playoff contests for the Warriors, with a torn left quadriceps tendon suffered April 15 keeping him out for 14 postseason contests. While he handled a more limited minutes load than he had before he tore his Achilles, Cousins showed occasional flashes of his prior form, which was enough for him to land a contract with the Lakers this summer. Cousins had been in line to either start at center or handle a prominent role on the second unit, but the torn ACL likely means that the big man will be sidelined for the entire 2019-20 regular season and potentially the postseason, too. Cousins' injury is not only a significant blow to the Lakers, but also his rest-of-career outlook, which had already been on the downturn due to the prior serious injury. Cousins will spend the next several months rehabbing under the supervision of the Lakers' training staff before hitting free agency again next summer, when he'll likely be forced to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal once again.

      Lakers' DeMarcus Cousins: Suffers possible knee injury
      10d ago

      Cousins is undergoing testing Thursday after possibly suffering a knee injury during a workout earlier in the week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      The wording is a bit unclear, but Wojnarowski notes that Cousins was working out in Las Vegas on Monday and had to leave the court after he appeared to tweak his knee. If the injury turns out to be anything serious, it would be a crushing blow to a Lakers roster that's extremely top-heavy. Cousins signed a one-year deal with the Lakers in July and is considered the favorite to start at center alongside Anthony Davis.

      Collins (ankle) was cleared for contact workouts Monday, Jason Quick of the Athletic reports.

      While all signs are pointing toward Collins being ready for training camp, the 21-year-old is missing out on some important development time. He could be in store for a big season, as the Blazers moved on from most of their stable frontcourt options during the offseason. Collins figures to play at both center and power forward and could realistically approach minutes in the mid-to-upper 20s.

      Clippers' Patrick Patterson: Reaches deal with Clippers

      Patterson agreed Thursday with the Clippers on a one-year, $2.3 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Shortly after word surfaced that Patterson and the Thunder were working toward a buyout earlier this month, the Clippers emerged as the overwhelming favorite to land the 30-year-old power forward. Unsurprisingly, he'll fill one of the two remaining spots open on the Clippers' roster, signing with the team for the veteran minimum. After averaging just 13.7 minutes per game in 63 appearances with Oklahoma City in 2018-19, Patterson isn't expected to see his role grow while moving to a club with legitimate title aspirations.

      Olynyk (knee) will not play for Canada in the FIBA World Cup, but he's expected to be ready for the start of the NBA season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Olynyk flew back to Miami earlier Tuesday to be examined by the Heat's medical staff, who apparently felt it was best for Olynyk to rest rather than push through his bone bruise. All indications are that Olynyk will be ready for the start of the season, where it's possible he opens as Miami's starting power forward or occupies a sixth-man role in the frontcourt.

      Olynyk suffered a right knee bone bruise in Canada's exhibition contest against Nigeria on Thursday. While the injury isn't expected to be serious, it's possible the Heat will strongly encourage Olynyk to sit out of the World Cup in order to preserve his health for the upcoming NBA season.

      Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Up to 234 pounds
      13d ago

      Isaac has worked on developing his body over the summer and currently weighs 234 pounds, The Athletic reports.

      Isaac spoke with The Athletic's Josh Robbins on Sunday after spending five days working with Team USA in Nevada. The third-year forward spoke on his development, noting that he's gained 25 pounds since the conclusion of the 2018-19 campaign. Despite the added weight, the Florida State product said he felt "the same, if not better" in terms of his quickness and conditioning. Whether he's able to maintain that weight over the course of an 82-game season remains to be seen, but it's nonetheless a positive development for a player who entered the league two years ago with plenty of questions about his thin frame. "Just being able to have a little more size on me down in the paint is going to help a lot," Isaac said. "I'm going to continue to finish out the summer working hard. I feel good right now. I feel good about where I'm at game-wise, body-wise, everything."

      Clippers' Paul George: Return date still unclear

      It remains unclear whether George (shoulder) will be available to begin the regular season, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

      George underwent surgery on both shoulders during the offseason, and while his camp is yet to comment on his recovery, it's being speculated that the forward could end up missing time to begin the year. Buha notes that, in his opinion, the best-case scenario is still that George is ready for opening night (Oct. 22), but it's entirely possible that his recovery drags into the month of November. With their eyes on a title, the Clippers won't push George to return before he's 100 percent healthy, so it does seem rather likely that he could be limited through the first few weeks of the regular season.

      The Mavericks appear to have liked what they saw out of Roby in summer league, as the $1.5 million cap hit he'll have in 2019-20 is the largest in NBA history for a second-round pick out of college. Roby could provide some depth in the frontcourt during the regular season, but will likely see most of his playing time as a rookie in the G League.

      The Heat officially guaranteed Jones' contract for 2019-20 after he remained on the roster following the Aug. 1 deadline, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

      Rumored to be on the move to Dallas in a trade earlier this offseason, Jones ultimately stayed put after the Heat ultimately brought in two other teams to facilitate the four-way deal that sent Jimmy Butler to Miami. The athletic forward will earn approximately $1.6 million in 2019-20 before hitting the market next July as an unrestricted free agent. Jones emerged as a rotation wing for Miami during the past season, starting in 14 of his 60 games while averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks in 19.2 minutes per contest while shooting 49.4 percent from the field.

      Thompson underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL just over a month ago, but Markazi notes that he's already walking without a limp or the assistance of crutches. "I feel good," Thompson said. "I'm going to come back 110 percent." Assuming Thompson's timeline holds up and he's back sometime shortly after the All-Star break, he'd likely be able to suit up for around 20 games. However, it's very possible the Warriors will limit his workload and bring him back up to speed gradually. The 29-year-old is coming off of a season in which he started 78 games and averaged 21.5 points while hitting 40.2 percent of his 7.7 three-point attempts per game.

      Along with Nunn, second-year forward Duncan Robinson will also be playing on a partially guaranteed contract heading into training camp.
