Hill was a full participant at Monday's practice, so this news does not come as a surprise. Barring any setbacks, Hill should presumably set to go Wednesday. The team presumably exercised caution here, so Hill figures to be in line for a full workload.
Bogdanovic continues to work his way back from a sprained right ankle, but after failing to go through practice earlier this week, he's going to sit out the opener to avoid any further aggravation. His next opportunity to take the court will be Friday against the Mavericks, but in the meantime, look for guys like Garrett Temple, Justin Jackson and Vince Carter to potentially get more minutes off the bench.
Reed had his left meniscus repaired on Aug. 25 and was given a timetable of four-to-six months to return to basketball activity. Reed wasn't expected to make much of an impact with the Suns this season, and with this injury putting him on the shelf until possibly into the new year, it's unlikely Reed sees much action this season.
Evans dealt with a migraine early on in the preseason, but this is the first we've heard of his ankle injury. The exact severity of it remains unclear, though the fact that he hasn't been ruled out yet is encouraging in itself. Look for his availability for Wednesday's opener to be updated following the team's morning shootaround. If Evans is cleared, he could see a decent workload considering Ben McLemore (foot) remains out for at least the next few weeks, while Wayne Selden (quad) will also be sidelined.
Selden missed the final three games of the preseason schedule with a quad injury and despite having over a week to make a full recovery, it's still giving him enough discomfort to keep him out of the opener. Andrew Harrison will draw the start at shooting guard and should see a sizable workload, while Tyreke Evans (akle) could see more minutes as well if he's ultimately cleared from his own injury.
After taking part in portions in Sunday's practice, Bogdanovic was held out of Monday's session entirely, so it appears he's still dealing with some lingering discomfort in the ankle he sprained at the end of last week. His availability for Wednesday's morning shootaround should give us a better indication on whether or not he'll play, though for now, he can be considered questionable.
Coach Mike Budenholzer indicated on Monday that he expected Belinelli to be ready for the opener, so this falls in line with that original belief. Look for Belinelli to open the season as Kent Bazemore's backup at shooting guard, though the Hawks could ultimately attempt to get a better look at some of their younger players later in the season once they've officially been eliminated from the playoffs as expected.
Despite Iguodala practicing Monday, his back is apparently still giving him enough discomfort to keep him from suiting up Tuesday. In his absence, Nick Young and Omri Casspi are likely candidates to absorb his minutes.
The team has yet to release an official timetable for his return, though according to Shams Charania of the Vertical, he'll likely miss 3-to-6 months. While McGruder is sidelined, expect the likes of Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and Justise Winslow to see more run.
If the MRI reveals that Caldwell-Pope suffered a broken nose, the guard may be fitted for a protective mask, though he will have a bit of extra time to recover, as he faces a two-game suspension to begin the season stemming from a DUI arrest last March. Broken nose or not, the earliest Caldwell-Pope will be able to play would be Sunday, when the Lakers play host to New Orleans. Once healthy and finished with his suspension, Caldwell-Pope is expected to start at shooting guard.
