Marcus Morris (personal) to miss the start of Celtics' training camp

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris will miss the start of training camp due to his ongoing trial for aggravated assault, per ESPN.

What It Means:

Marcus and Markieff Morris are on trial in Phoenix stemming from an alleged assault outside of a recreation center back in January of 2015. If found guilty the twin brothers are looking at possible jail time as well as an NBA suspension. Marcus Morris is expected to compete for a starting spot after being traded from the Detroit Pistons this offseason in exchange for Avery Bradley

Morris averaged 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.5 three-pointers per game as a starter for the Pistons.

Bucks' Jabari Parker (knee) targeting a February return

Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker (knee) said that he can do "everything right now," and he plans to be back on the court by February, per Stephen Watson of WIS12 News.

What It Means:

Parker tore the ACL in his left knee in February, the same one he ruptured in 2014. Even if Parker returns in February, he is likely to be eased into action the first month or so, limiting his useful for the entire regular season.

Parker was averaging 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game in 51 games played in 2016-17.

Thunder's Russell Westbrook insists his knee is 'fine'

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook told reporters that his left knee is "fine" even after receiving a PRP injection on September 22.

What It Means:

Westbrook is expected to miss the first few days of training camp, but both Westbrook and GM Sam Presti have insisted the injury is no concern and that the reigning MVP will be ready once preseason rolls around next week. While Westbrook has had issues with his right knee before, this is the first time his left knee has given him any trouble.

Westbrook led the NBA With 31.6 points per game while becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double. He posted 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game last year.

Zach LaVine (knee) will not be ready for Bulls' season opener

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine (knee) will not be ready to play in the season opener on October 19, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

What It Means:

LaVine tore his ACL in February but remains without an official timetable from Chicago. Typically it takes nine months to recover from this injury, making it likely the former Minnesota Timberwolves' will be out until November at the earliest. With the rebuild underway in Chicago, they also have no reason to rush him back.

LaVine was on his way to a career year, before the knee injury, as he averaged 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.9 steals, and 2.6 three-pointers per game, all career highs last season.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) expected to debut for Cavaliers by January

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Isaiah Thomas is expected to play by January.

What It Means:

Thomas has begun on-court activities following issues with his hip. With Thomas possibly out for up to 36 games, Derrick Rose is expected to open the season as the Cavaliers' starting point guard.

Thomas ranked third in the NBA last season, with 28.9 points per game as a member of the Boston Celtics.
