Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant expects to play in the team\'s preseason opener on Oct. 6 after recovering from a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Los Angeles still expects Bryant to average 23 points per game. Head coach Bryon Scott said he expects Bryant to be healthy all 82 games, and if that happens, Bryant could be a fantasy steal based on where he will be picked this year.
Description: Pacers forward Paul George said he is hoping to return for the playoffs as long as Indiana makes it according to NBA.com.
Insight: George fractured his leg while playing for Team USA on Aug. 1. He was walking around without a walking boot on Monday, which is encouraging, but it is still very unlikely he plays at all this year. Do not draft him in any fantasy leagues.
