Injured Shaun Livingston BKN, Injured Open link
The Warriors announced that Livingston will miss six-to-eight weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his right big toe earlier in the week. As part of his rehabilitation from the surgery, he will be in a splint for the first three weeks of his recovery. The timetable puts Livingston back on the court right around the start of the preseason, which should give him enough time to get adjusted with his new teammates and coach Steve Kerr's offense.
Injured Isaiah Thomas SAC, Injured Open link
The Suns announced that Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist Thursday. He is expected to participate fully in the team’s training camp in late-September, and it shouldn't affect his availability or status for the season opener in any way. Thomas played through a strained ligament in his wrist last season, and Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported in February that "there could come a time in the near future when Thomas could need to consider procedural remedies for the wrist."
Suspended PJ Tucker PHO, Suspended Open link
Tucker has been suspended three games without pay by the NBA for pleading guilty to driving while under the extreme influence in Arizona. He was arrested and charged with a "super extreme DUI" in late July, meaning he blew over a .20 on the breathalyzer. Tucker will serve out his suspension during the first three games of the 2014-15 season, with Gerald Green likely stepping into the starting lineup at small forward in his place during the early going.
Suspended Raymond Felton NYK, Suspended Open link
Felton has been suspended four games by the NBA for pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He will serve out his suspension during the first four games of the 2014-15 season, with Jameer Nelson assuming the starts at point guard for the Mavericks in his place during that stretch.

PLAYER COMMENTS

Doug McDermott- Not a lot there for him while everyone is healthy. Questions about his defense, Butler is in for massive minutes, and Dunleavy is an excellent three-point shooter in his own right. [mbuser]

Doug McDermott- I like McDermott for his possible NBA readiness, but until rotational minutes shake out I'd be hesitant to draft him outside of a last round flier on a team that needed threes [Trusted Advisor silentjim]

Doug McDermott- What sort of minutes/role are we projecting for McDermott this season? [seanmcfadden]

Andrew Wiggins- Not expecting much in his rookie season. Per-minute, decent boards/steals/blocks, but poor FG% and poor AST:TO. [mbuser]

Andrew Wiggins- What categories will Wiggins impact playing in Minnesota? [ak murthy]

Kevin Love- Wolves owner Glen Taylor: late-August (Wiggins) trade of Love is "most likely because Kevin has made it pretty clear that that's what he wants to do." http://tinyurl.com/p5ftdmt [mbuser]

PJ Tucker- Arrested and charged with a "super extreme DUI", meaning he blew over a .20 on the breathalyzer. Could be facing a suspension to start the season. [jphanned]

Chandler Parsons- I'd expect him to post higher value on DAL if anything. Going from Harden/D12 to Dirk/Monta should mean he'll have a more expansive offensive role. [jphanned]

Chandler Parsons- Should we expect similar numbers and usage with Parsons in DAL [Sribb43]

Trevor Ariza- Similar minutes and usage should be available for Ariza with Parsons in DAL. So his value will depend on whether or not he can stay healthy and maintain the 3P%. [mbuser]

Trevor Ariza- Let's see what happens with Parsons first. He'll play plenty in a sixth man role, but certainly won't match his 35 mpg from last season as a reserve. [mbuser]

Trevor Ariza- what do you think of Ariza's value in Houston? [bechteljay]

Kelly Olynyk- We talked about him as such in the season-ending podcast. Very versatile per-minute production, but also 5.8 fouls per-36. [mbuser]

Kelly Olynyk- Potential sleeper for next year? [ak murthy]

Anthony Davis- Link also mentions working on more post moves and a pull-up jumper, which would certainly get more use. Good read, it reinforces that his drive and work ethic are on par with his freakish talent. [mbuser]
