Guard Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Michael Carter-Williams, G, PHI8/27/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) has not yet been cleared for five-on-five workouts with contact, according to 76ers GM Sam Hinkie.
Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He missed 12 games his rookie season, but won the Rookie of the Year with averages of 16.7 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. If he can stay healthy, he should be a reliable point guard option especially in leagues that have no penalty for turnovers.
Andrew Wiggins, G, MIN8/23/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: The three-team trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers is complete and 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins is now a member of Minnesota.
Insight: Wiggins' fantasy value gets a nice boost from the trade, as he'll have to carry a much larger offensive burden than he would have had in Cleveland. Minnesota's starting lineup to begin the season will likely include Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Wiggins, Thaddeus Young and Nikola Pekovic.
Reggie Jackson, G, OKC8/21/2014 12:34:00 PM
Description: The Oklahoma City Thunder and guard Reggie Jackson are unlikely to reach an agreement to a contract extension before the October 31 deadline, according to NewsOK.com.
Insight: The Thunder would like to lock up Jackson long term before the season starts, but that is unlikely according to the NewsOK.com report. The 24-year-old is due to be a restricted free agent after this season. At that time, Oklahoma City can match any offer another team issues to Jackson. The guard is somewhat limited in terms of fantasy if Russell Westbrook is healthy.
Eric Bledsoe, G, PHO8/21/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: According to Jude LaCava of FOX Phoenix, the Suns are attempting to trade restricted free agent eric Bledsoe.
Insight: Bledsoe wants a five-year max contract, but the biggest contract the Suns have offered him is four years and $48 million. Injures limited Bledsoe to 43 games last season, but in those games, he averaged 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.6 steals. If John Wall can get a max deal it's not crazy to think Bledsoe (17.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.7 rpg) will get one also. As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market. There's been some speculation that Phoenix could deal Bledsoe or point guard Goran Dragic to Minnesota as part of a trade for Kevin Love.
Kyrie Irving, G, CLE8/21/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Kyrie Irving made all five of his field goal attempts as he looked fantastic against the Dominican Republic on Wednesday. Irving finished with 12 points, five assists and two 3-pointers.
Insight: Could this be a preview of what is to come in Cleveland this season? Irving did not take a single bad shot on Wednesday. He has not been the most efficient player in the past, but that could change with the help he will receive this season. Irving's usage rate is definitely going to take a hit, but sometimes in fantasy, less is more.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA8/21/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: According to Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com, Gordon Hayward could be the next Team USA cut.
Insight: Sheridan wrote, "Of all the bubble guys, he (Hayward) did the least to distinguish himself." Hayward scored four points and had two steals on Wednesday against Dominican Republic. Andre Drummond, Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Korver, and Chandler Parsons join Hayward on the roster bubble as coach Mike Krzyzewski and his staff trim the roster from 16 to 12. Team USA heads to the World Cup of Basketball on Saturday.
Derrick Rose, G, CHI8/21/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Bulls point guard Derrick Rose said he will play in Team USA's exhibition game against Puerto Rico on Friday.
Insight: Rose did not suit up for Wednesday's game against Dominican Republic but he told CBS Sports there's northing to worry about. "Just trying to protect myself, just knowing that this is a long, long schedule and this is the most basketball I'll be playing in two years." Rose has played in just 10 games the past two seasons, so fantasy owners who have stuck with him should be pleased Rose is not pushing himself too early.
Rajon Rondo, G, BOS8/18/2014 2:04:00 PM
Description: The latest rumor, courtesy of talk show host Tyler Spence, is for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is a trade with Sacramento.
Insight: If true, this would be horrible news for Darren Collison's fantasy owners because as it stands he's set to be the Kings starting point guard. Of course, after a year of rumors concerning Rondo, we will believe it when someone actually pulls the trigger on the trade.
Isaiah Thomas, G, PHO8/15/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Suns PG Isaiah Thomas, who agreed to a four-year, $27 million deal, had arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist on Thursday.
Insight: The 5-foot-9 Thomas averaged 20.3 ppg and 6.3 apg last season for Saqcramento. The team says he is expected to be ready for training camp.
