Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) will miss four-to-six weeks

Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic will miss four-to-six weeks after undergoing a knee procedure on Monday.

What It Means:

This means he'll miss a minimum of four games to start the year, though likely more as the Kings play it safe with their start second-year player. There will be plenty of extra minutes for Buddy Hield, Yogi Farrell, and all of the other Kings guards until he gets back.

Bogdanovic is coming of a solid rookie season in which he averaged 11.8 points, 3.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 0.9 steals in 27.9 minutes per game.

Heat's James Johnson (hernia) may miss start of regular season

Miami Heat forward James Johnson may miss some regular season games while recovering from hernia surgery.

What It Means:

This could mean that Kelly Olynyk gets slotted into the starting five to start the season. Oddly enough, Olynyk averaged 0.2 more FanDuel points per game as a bench player, despite playing 5.5 fewer minutes per game than he did as a starter.

Our early projections have Johnson as the 105th-ranked fantasy player in the 2018-19 season.

Timberwolves reportedly intend to keep Jimmy Butler

The Minnesota Timberwolves are refusing trade offers for guard/forward Jimmy Butler, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

What It Means:

"Minnesota executives are telling teams that Butler's an elite player and that the franchise intends to keep him," Wojnarowski writes in the wake of the four-time All-Star's trade request this week. Timberwolves head coach/president of basketball operations Tim Thibodeau wants to keep Butler to better the team's chances of winning now, but that runs the risk of letting him walk for nothing in free agency next summer. Butler turned 29 earlier this month.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 2.0 steals, and 1.2 3-pointers on a career-high 47.4 field goal percentage for the Timberwolves last season.

Lakers' Lonzo Ball (knee) fully cleared to resume all basketball activities

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball has been cleared by the team's doctors to resume all basketball activities.

What It Means:

Lonzo will be able to practice with the team when training camp opens on Saturday, but he won't initially be running with the team in five-on-five drills, according to Lakers beat reporter Mike Trudell.

numberFire's early projections have Ball slated to average 11.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 27.4 FanDuel points in 29.3 minutes per game.

Jimmy Butler has reportedly requested a trade from the Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler has requested a trade, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

What It Means:

Butler has given Minnesota a list of up to three teams that he would be willing to sign an extension with, according to the report.

He averaged 22.2 points and 4.9 assists per game with a 59.0% true shooting percentage last year.
