Casper Ware G BKN 2 Hrs
Ware has been waived by the Nets, the Wall Street Journal's Alex Raskin reports.
The Nets' roster now stands at 15 players, and the speedy Ware will look to catch on with a D-League team or a foreign team.
Jordan Hamilton SF TOR 2 Hrs
Hamilton was waived by the Raptors on Saturday.
Hamilton has enough talent to land on his feet with another team at some point this season, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset.
Will Cherry G TOR 3 Hrs
Cherry was waived by the Raptors on Saturday.
He was unlikely to make the team out of camp, so this news is not very fantasy relevant.
Larry Sanders PF/C MIL 5 Hrs
Sanders (undisclosed) participated in some non-contact work on the court during Friday's practice, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The expectation is that Sanders will be ready for the season opener next week despite missing the final four preseason games following a minor procedure. Sanders was playing well in the early portion of the preseason slate and is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2013-14 campaign.
Ryan Kelly F LAL 6 Hrs
Kelly (hamstring) was not able to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Kings as he continues to deal with his injury.
Kelly is still sidelined with a sore right hamstring, although the Lakers want to give him as much rest as possible before the regular season starts, so his injury isn't likely serious. The 23-year-old will be a game-time decision ahead of Tuesday's regular season opener against the Rockets and will provide relief off the bench if he ultimately is able to play.
Terrence Jones F HOU 6 Hrs
Jones (neck) returned to action Friday against the Spurs and was able to put up 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 13 rebounds and two blocks.
Jones strained his neck during Wednesday's preseason game against the Magic but was able to make a successful return to the court with Friday's impressive double-double performance. With the regular season opener coming up against the Lakers on Tuesday, Jones seems to be in full health and will be an integral part of the rotation as the Rockets' starting power forward.
Omri Casspi SG/SF SAC 6 Hrs
Casspi did not play in Friday's final preseason game against the Lakers, although he was available off the bench and not limited because of his recent back injury.
Casspi's back injury was minor in nature and won't likely hold him back when the Kings start their regular season against the Warriors on Wednesday. Most important to keep in mind when considering Casspi as an option is that he's currently behind Rudy Gay and Derrick Williams in the pecking order. That poses major problems for his viability this season unless the injury bug hits Sacramento.
James Young SG/SF BOS 6 Hrs
Young seems to have gotten over his hamstring injury with his successful 26-minute outing against the Nets in which he was able to score five points and grab four rebounds.
Young was plagued with a hamstring injury throughout the preseason that limited him to just two games. The rookie certainly could have benefited from more time on the court, both in practice and exhibition games, but there's no time for prep left as the Celtics begin their regular season against the Nets on Wednesday. At 19-years-old, it's still undetermined what kind of role Young will have on the team, although he'll be competing for minutes with the three capable veterans of Jeff Green, Evan Turner, and Gerald Wallace which certainly curtails his value.
Jordan Farmar PG LAC 6 Hrs
Farmar (back) came off the bench for 23 minutes in Friday's preseason finale against Portland and was able to put up four points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist.
Farmar had to leave Saturday's preseason game against the Nuggets with lower back tightness and was then forced to miss the next two games until returning against Portland on Friday. The veteran will now likely be available for the season opener against the Thunder on Thursday while providing the Clippers with valuable minutes off the bench.
Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 9 Hrs
Brewer stared at small forward and scored six points with four rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes in Friday's preseason win over Chicago.
Brewer got the start with Andrew Wiggins sitting out with a sore back/tailbone. Wiggins' injury isn't thought to be serious, so Brewer will likely come off the bench during the regular season. Brewer can be a defensive spark, but he'll likely see decreased playing time with the addition of Wiggins and Anthony Bennett and Chase Budinger's return to health.
