Kentavious Caldwell-Pope    G  Lakers



Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is expected to start in his regular-season debut on Sunday vs. the Pelicans. KCP has served his two-game suspension, so he should be starting the rest of the way, which will result in Corey Brewer heading back to the bench. There also might not be quite as many minutes available for Jordan Clarkson, and Lonzo Ball could see a minor dip in usage. Feel free to get Caldwell-Pope active.

Wayne Selden    G  Grizzlies



Wayne Selden (right quad) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Rockets. With Selden on the sidelines, Andrew Harrison will likely be looking at another start and Dillon Brooks should flirt with roughly 30 minutes off the bench. Selden belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson    G/F  Nets



Rondae Hollis-Jefferson appeared to tweak his ankle and he's headed back to the locker room. Hollis-Jefferson was sporting a slight limp on his way back to the locker room, but it didn't look all that serious and he was able to make his way to the back unassisted. We should have another update shortly, stay tuned.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Celtics



Danny Ainge seemed to acknowledge during a recent interview that Gordon Hayward's (leg) season is likely over. "When [Kevin Garnett] went down in ’09, we weren’t sure that he was done," Ainge said. "We were sort of thinking that he might come back, he’s not too far away, and that made that a challenging year. We weren’t sure what to do because we were trying to buy time, and in Gordon’s case, he’s most likely out for the year. So that’s a different scenario." Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes with Hayward on the sidelines.

Tony Parker    G  Spurs



Parker (quad) has been cleared for some full-contact drills, Jeff McDonald of San Antonio Express-News reports. "His rehab is going really well," coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's going 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 pretty much full speed. I think he gets to go 5-on-5 in about a week and we'll see how he looks."

Allen Crabbe    G/F  Nets



Allen Crabbe will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Hawks. Caris LeVert will be replacing Crabbe in the starting five tonight, and head coach Kenny Atkinson indicated that he's making this move to help monitor Crabbe's minutes as he works his way back from the ankle injury. Still, he has a bit more freedom to fire up shots when working with the second unit, so him operating in a reserve role isn't necessarily a bad thing for his fantasy value.
