    Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Won't play Sunday

    Clark (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Sunday's Summer League matchup against the Magic, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    Clark, a 2023 second-round pick, missed his entire rookie campaign while rehabbing from a torn Achilles, but he returned to action during the Las Vegas Summer League. He posted four points (1-8 FG), two assists, a rebound, a steal and a block in 22 minutes during Thursday's win over the Rockets.

  • Timberwolves' Terrence Shannon: Won't play in Summer League finale

    Shannon (toe) has been ruled out for Minnesota's Summer League finale against the Magic, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    Shannon suffered a left toe injury during Thursday's matchup against the Rockets and will miss Minnesota's final exhibition. The Illinois product was the No. 27 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft and is expected to compete for bench minutes as a rookie.

  • Jake LaRavia SF | MEM

    Grizzlies' Jake LaRavia: Won't play Sunday

    LaRavia (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's Summer League semifinal matchup against the Clippers, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports.

    LaRavia is dealing with a minor ankle sprain but will likely miss the remainder of Summer League, along with rookies Zach Edey (ankle) and Cam Spencer (ankle). LaRavia, a 2022 first-round pick, has appeared in 70 regular-season games (six starts) over the last two seasons but needs to prove himself worthy of a roster spot during training camp.

  • Cam Spencer SG | MEM

    Grizzlies' Cam Spencer: Dealing with minor ankle sprain

    Spencer has been shut down for the remainder of Summer League due to a minor ankle sprain, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports.

    Zach Edey (ankle) has also been shut down, but both rookies are expected to be 100 percent healthy for training camp. Spencer, a second-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, was a sharpshooter in college at UConn but will have an uphill battle to make Memphis' initial rotation as a rookie.

  • Zach Edey C | MEM

    Grizzlies' Zach Edey: Out for rest of Summer League

    Edey (ankle) has been shut down for the remainder of Summer League, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports.

    Edey tweaked his right ankle during Thursday's win over the Pelicans. While the issue is expected to be minor, it's unsurprising to see Memphis proceed with caution. Edey, the No. 9 overall pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, is expected to compete for a rotational role in Memphis' frontcourt as a rookie.

  • Jamal Murray PG | DEN

    Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Returns to action Sunday

    Murray (rest) will play in Sunday's exhibition game against Puerto Rico, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Murray sat out Friday's exhibition versus France due to rest purposes but will return to Canada's starting lineup Sunday. The Nuggets' point guard will be one of several NBA players suiting up for Canada during the 2024 Paris Olympics.

  • Sam Hauser SF | BOS

    Celtics' Sam Hauser: Agrees to four-year extension

    Hauser and the Celtics agreed on a four-year, $45 million extension Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Hauser shot 42.4 percent from three on 5.9 attempts per game last year and was a key offensive weapon off the bench during Boston's championship run. The sharpshooter was set to make $2.1 million in 2024-25 before the extension, so the new deal gives him a hefty pay raise and keeps him tied to Boston for the foreseeable future.

  • Thunder's Keyontae Johnson: Dazzles in SL finale

    Johnson generated 20 points (8-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-7 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and a block across 30 minutes of Saturday's 88-79 win over Dallas in Summer League.

    Johnson tied for the team lead in points and assists en route to OKC's first victory in Las Vegas. Johnson spent the 2023-24 campaign on a two-way contract and appeared in nine NBA games. However, with Ajay Mitchell, Alex Ducas (hip) and Adam Flagler occupying the Thunder's three two-way contracts, Johnson will likely spend the upcoming season with the Oklahoma City Blue unless another suitor swoops in.

  • Trey Alexander SG | DEN

    Nuggets' Trey Alexander: Shines in SL finale

    Alexander generated 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 29 minutes of Saturday's 91-82 win over the Pelicans in Summer League.

    Alexander flirted with a double-double Saturday and shot 80 percent from the field. The undrafted rookie out of Creighton is on a two-way contract for the 2024-25 campaign but could be playing his way into a rotation spot after averaging 17.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in Las Vegas.

  • Pelicans' Jordan Hawkins: Won't return Saturday

    Hawkins has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's Summer League game against the Nuggets due to a right ankle injury.

    Hawkins underwent X-rays after sustaining the injury, which came back negative. Still, the Pelicans will refrain from putting the 22-year-old back into its final Summer League contest. Hawkins will finish the game with three points (0-3 FG, 3-4 FT) and a block across 11 minutes. It's unclear if the injury will impact Hawkins' availability for training camp.
