Brandon Rush SG/SF GS 21 Hrs

Rush (back) will miss Tuesday's game and will be reevaluated in a week, Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears reports.

He could miss the season opener, and owners will want to check back on his status early next week.

Andrew Wiggins SG MIN 22 Hrs

Wiggins (back) won't play in Tuesday's preseason game.

He's still a little sore after landing on his back in Sunday's game, but it doesn't sound like anything that will hold him out for the season opener. Look for the rookie to rejoin the starting lineup either Wednesday or Friday. Corey Brewer will start Tuesday.

Danilo Gallinari F DEN 22 Hrs

Gallinari (illness) will start Tuesday's preseason game, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.

He missed Monday's practice with an illness, but should be fine moving forward.

Ty Lawson PG DEN 22 Hrs

Lawson (hamstring) will not play Tuesday, Nuggets' announcer Jason Kosmicki reports.

Lawson left Saturday's game with a tight hamstring, and it's unclear if he will be ready for the start of the regular season. The Nuggets are likely just playing it safe with Lawson, and he should be considered day-to-day going forward. Nate Robinson will get the start at point guard.

Shawne Williams SF MIA 23 Hrs

Williams will likely start for the Heat to open the regular season, the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman reports.

Part of the reason for this is that Josh McRoberts is still sidelined with a toe injury, and may not be available for the start of the regular season. However, Winderman said that even if McRoberts is healthy, Williams could be the guy next to Chris Bosh in the frontcourt, given his ability to stretch defenses if Bosh sets up in the post. That said, he's never played more than 21 minutes per game in a season, so it's unlikely he sees starter's minutes, even if he is the starter.

Nikola Vucevic PF/C ORL 23 Hrs

Vucevic has agreed to a four-year $53 million extension with the Magic, Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears reports.

This will be tacked on to his current deal, and will keep the center in Orlando through the 2018-19 season. He turns 24 years old this week, and is one of only five players to average at least 10 rebounds per game in each of the last five seasons.

Andrew Wiggins SG MIN 23 Hrs

Wiggins might not play in Tuesday's preseason game after falling on his back in Sunday's exhibition against the Thunder, T-Wolves' announcer Alan Horton reports.

Coach Flip Saunders said Wiggins is sore and is a 50-50 proposition for Tuesday's game. However, it doesn't sound like anything that will keep Wiggins sidelined for the season opener.

Jeremy Lin G LAL 23 Hrs

Lin (ankle) posted on his Twitter account that he will be taking the court for Tuesday's preseason game.

His ankles are feeling better, and he posted a picture of him getting taped up prior to Tuesday's contest. Given the lack of another reliable point guard on the team (Steve Nash doesn't qualify due to health concerns), it will be difficult for Lin not to compile relatively solid counting stats this season.

Norris Cole PG MIA 23 Hrs

Cole has been dealing with a back issue, but is expected to start Tuesday's preseason game, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Ira Winderman reports.

It looks like Cole will open the season as the Heat's starting point guard, with Mario Chalmers coming in off the bench. While this doesn't necessarily mean Cole will be the better fantasy option than Chalmers, it does mean that the two should be going pretty close to one another in drafts.

Brandon Knight G MIL 23 Hrs

Knight (groin) could play Wednesday against the Timberwolves, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Knight, who has not played since last Saturday while nursing a sore groin, went through an extensive workout during Tuesday's practice. That's certainly encouraging, though the team could still hold him out of Wednesday's exhibition finale in order to give him another full week to rest up before the regular season tips off.
