Zylan Cheatham – Cheatham (undisclosed) did not play in Saturdays G League loss to Westchester. The 24-year-old hasnt appeared in a game since Nov. 29, and the injury designation could help provide an explanation after he averaged 16.9 points and 13.6 rebounds per game over his first nine appearances. The nature of the injury is unclear, but his next chance to take the court will come Friday against the Mad Ants.
Darius Miller – Miller underwent surgery Thursday to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The forward is expected to be sidelined for 7-to-8 months, according to Malika Andrews of ESPN.com Miller presumably suffered the injury duringa recent workout. Given the nature of Achilles tears, theres a fair chance that Miller misses the entire 2019-20 campaign. The injury opens up more time on the wing for the likes of Brandon Ingram, Nicolo Melli and Josh Hart.
Zion Williamson – Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin said Thursday that Williamson (knee) isnt expected to play back-to-back games once the rookie is cleared to make his 2019-20 debut, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. Williamson has yet to be cleared for on-court activities, though the Pelicans are making it known early on that theyll carefully monitor the rookies minutes when hes ultimately given the green light. While Williamson was initially projected to miss 6-to-8 weeks when he underwent surgery Oct. 21 to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, New Orleans has chosen to err on the side of caution and proceed more slowly with his recovery. Kristen Ledlow of NBA TV reported earlier this week that Williamsons return date will “definitely” fall outside that 6-to-8-week window, meaning fantasy managers probably shouldnt expect him to play until January.
Al Farouq Aminu – Aminu will not undergo surgery for his torn meniscus, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports. He will be treated with a non-operative procedure and remains without an official timetable for a return. Aminu has missed the past five games, but he was seen doing some light shooting work fllowing Wednesdays morning shootaround, suggesting hes making solid progress. Additional updates should emerge when Aminu hits various milestones in his recovery.
Chuma Okeke – The Magic are expected to keep Okeke inactive for the entire 2019-20 while he focuses on rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Just as the Kings and Nuggets have done with Harry Giles and Michael Porter Jr., respectively, over the past two years, the Magic plan to treat Okekes rookie campaign as a redshirt year while the big man recovers from the torn ACL he sustained while playing for Auburn in the NCAA tournament. Okeke should be at or near full strength in the spring, but the Magic wont rush him back into action while the team prioritizes his long-term health. Even if he entered training camp 100 percent healthy, Okeke would Iikely have trouble finding playing time with all of Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, Mo Bamba, Jonathan Isaac and Al-Faroug Aminu ahead of him in some order on the Magics frontcourt depth chart. Since hes sitting out the season, Charania relays that Okeke wont sign his standard four-year rookie contract until next off- season, an arrangement that should earn the big man an extra $1 million with the rookie scale set to increase. That decision also benefits the Magic, who wont have to extend one of their 15 roster spots to a player who wont contribute in 2019-20.
Nikola Vucevic – Vucevic (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sundays game against the Pelic- ans. Vucevic is looking to make his return Sunday following an 11-game absence. If he returns, he will probably be inserted into the starting five, though could be on a minutes limit. More information may emerge following the Magics morning shootaround.
