Dante Exum
Jazz's Dante Exum: Slated to undergo shoulder surgery
Dante Exum, G, UTA
7:20 PM
News: Exum will undergo surgery to stabilize the AC Joint in his separated left shoulder, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

The operation is schedule for Oct. 24, so we'll likely see his timetable for a return updated shortly after. That being said, the fact that he's undergoing surgery is only further evidence that he'll likely miss the entire season, which would mark the second time in his young career that he'll sit out an entire campaign. Raul Neto and Donovan Mitchell should pick up the majority of Exum's minutes.

Omri Casspi
Warriors' Omri Casspi: Upgraded to probable
Omri Casspi, F, GS
6:57 PM
News: Casspi (ankle) is now listed as probable for the Warriors' season opening game versus the Rockets.

Casspi suffered a sprained ankle in Friday's preseason finale, but it does not appear to be anything serious. He should be ready to go Tuesday barring any setbacks, but it remains to be seen how much time, if any, he will see in the team's rotation.

Analysis: 

George Hill
Kings' George Hill: Practices again Monday
George Hill, G, SAC
5:43 PM
News: Hill (groin) was able to go through Monday's practice, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Hill has participated in back-to-back practices, so it appears he's trending in the right direction ahead of Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Rockets. That said, coach Dave Joerger has yet to officially say Hill will play, so continue to monitor his status over the next few days. Tentatively consider him questionable for Wednesday.

Analysis: 

Bogdan Bogdanovic
Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Held out of practice Monday
Bogdan Bogdanovic, G, SAC
5:40 PM
News: Bogdanovic (ankle) sat out practice Monday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bogdanovic participated in portions of Sunday's practice, so it's certainly a bit discouraging that he wasn't able to go through any of Monday's session. With the regular-season opener slated for Wednesday against the Rockets, Bogdanovic is in danger of potentially being held out, but he can be considered questionable for the time being until another update is provided.

Analysis: 

Julius Randle
Lakers' Julius Randle: Limited in practice Monday
Julius Randle, F, LAL
3:21 PM
News: Randle is dealing with strained ribs and was a limited participant in Monday's practice, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet

Randle was forced out of Friday's preseason game with back spasms, but he's now dealing with the rib issue on top of the lingering back problems. He'll continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis before likely being a game-time decision for Thursday's season opener against the Clippers. Larry Nance Jr. would step in as the starting power forward if Randle was unable to play Thursday.

Analysis: 

Josh Hart
Lakers' Josh Hart: Leaves practice with Achilles strain
Josh Hart, G, LAL
3:08 PM
News: Hart left Monday's practice with a left Achilles strain and will undergo an MRI, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

It's unclear how severe the rookie's injury is, but the team should have a better idea of a timeline for his recovery following his MRI later on Monday. With plenty of young talent in the Lakers' backcourt, Hart is expected to be buried on the bench this season as a depth option at guard.

Analysis: 

Andrew Bogut
Lakers' Andrew Bogut: Limited at Monday's practice
Andrew Bogut, C, LAL
2:58 PM
News: Bogut (groin) was limited during Monday's practice, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

Bogut reportedly went through everything but the team's final 5-on-5 scrimmage, so he continues to inch closer to a return. The 7-foot big man will hope to be elevated to a full participant over the next few days, though he remains questionable for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Clippers.

Analysis: 

Lonzo Ball
Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Full participant in practice Monday
Lonzo Ball, G, LAL
2:54 PM
News: Ball (ankle) went through a full practice Monday, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

Ball missed the final four games of the preseason schedule while receiving treatment for a injured left ankle. However, he was able to go through a full practice Monday, which included five-on-five scrimmaging, so it appears he's in line to be ready for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Clippers. Continue to monitor his status over the next few days for an official update on his availability, but if does play as expected, Ball should run the offense as the team's starting point guard.

Analysis: 

Andre Iguodala
Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Practices, remains questionable for Tuesday
Andre Iguodala, G, GS
2:45 PM
News: Iguodala (back) participated in Monday's practice but remains questionable to play in Tuesday' season opener against the Rockets, Mark Medina of The Mercury News reports.

While Iguodala still has the questionable tag, it seems likely that he is going to be able to play in Tuesday's contest, and his participation in practice Monday makes that more evident. The Warriors appear to just be remaining cautious with the veteran, and he should be considered a game-time decision, but the injury is not believed to be serious.

Analysis: 

Raul Neto
Jazz's Raul Neto: Limited in practice Monday
Raul Neto, G, UTA
2:27 PM
News: Neto (hamstring) was a limited participant in Monday's practice, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

It is the first time Neto has reportedly practiced since suffering the hamstring injury nearly a week ago, so the point guard may be nearing a return to the floor. Neto is set to open the regular season as Ricky Rubio's backup at point guard, but he should be considered questionable-at-best to play in Wednesday's regular season opener.
