News: Suns newcomer Isaiah Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist, the team announced Thursday.

Thomas dealt with a sprained wrist last season but was able to play through it on his way to a career year. An MRI in February revealed no ligament damage, which would indicate this latest procedure is nothing to worry about. The team expects him to be ready for training camp.

Andrew Wiggins
Landing in Minnesota should improve Andrew Wiggins' value

News: The prize of the trade that ultimately sent Kevin Love to Cleveland will likely be the Timberwolves' acquisition of No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins , assuming there are no unexpected changes in the deal the two sides agreed to.

If Wiggins does ultimately land in Minnesota, as expected, this should be a boon to his Fantasy value. Though Wiggins will have substantially less help as he makes the transition to the NBA than he would have in Cleveland, he is also likely to be much more of a featured option than he otherwise might have been.

Wiggins was likely going to be the third or possibly even fourth offensive option for the Cavs, and likely would have been so for some time, given the presence of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on long-term deals. Now, the Timberwolves get to build around Wiggins as their long-term centerpiece, and he should be given plenty of rope as the team tries to navigate their upcoming rebuild.

Wiggins is raw, but still put up 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32.8 minutes per game as a freshman at the University of Kansas. There are some questions about how well his game will translate to the NBA, but he will at least have some help, in the form of point guard Ricky Rubio, who knows exactly how to set up teammates for shots they like.

Wiggins is mostly upside right now, but should be considered a second-round pick in all keeper-league Fantasy formats. In yearly re-draft leagues, he is more of a mid-round option at this point, albeit one with tremendous upside.

News: The Nuggets inked both of their first-round picks to rookie-scale deals last week, as the team announced the signings of center Jusuf Nurkic and guard Gary Harris.

Kurkic was considered a possible draft-and-stash option, but the 19-year-old out of Bosnia opted to head to the NBA after becoming the 16th overall pick. Harris was taken 19th overall after a two-year career at Michigan State, which saw him averaging 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.

Steve Nash: 'I think this is my last season'

News: Lakers guard Steve Nash has struggled through a series of injuries and appears to be just about at the end of his career at the age of 40.

"I think this is my last season," Nash told Sport TV, via the Los Angeles Daily News. "But I still love to play. I love to practice and work on my game. I'm going to spend hopefully many, many years living this life without basketball. It'll be nice to play one more year."

Nash was limited to just 15 games a year ago due to a back injury that also caused nerve problems in his lower body. The Lakers acquired point guard Jeremy Lin this offseason and likely do not expect much from Nash, given his injury issues.
