Rockets' Brandon Knight (knee) has no timetable for return

Houston Rockets guard Brandon Knight (knee) is still without a timetable for his return, general manager Daryl Morey announced on Friday.

What It Means:

Knight is still rehabbing his knee following an offseason procedure. He was acquired from the Phoenix Suns in the offseason.

numberFire's models currently project Knight to average 6.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.6 3-pointers in 15.3 minutes per game this season.

OG Anunoby (eye) will play for Raptors Friday

Toronto Raptors small forward OG Anunoby (right orbital contusion) will play Friday against the Boston Celtics.

What It Means:

Anunoby made an early exit from Wednesday's season opener but practiced in full on Thursday and Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said the 21-year-old is "fine." Delon Wright (groin) will sit again.

numberFire's models project Anunoby to score 11.4 FanDuel points in 18.9 minutes at a cost of $3,900 on Friday.

Zach Collins swats 6 shots, Trail Blazers top Lakers

Portland Trail Blazers center Zach Collins scored 6 points (3-of-4 field goals) with 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 6 blocks, and 1 turnover in 26.3 minutes of a 128-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

What It Means:

Collins never swatted more than 3 shots in 66 games as a rookie. It's an encouraging start for his sophomore campaign but will obviously be tough to sustain. The Trail Blazers host the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday.

Collins produced 33.2 FanDuel points in the opener, almost three times as much as numberFire's projection of 11.5 FanDuel points.

Lakers' Josh Hart has full line in loss

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Josh Hart scored 20 points (8-of-12 field goals, 1-of-3 free throws) with 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals, 2 blocks, 3 3-pointers, and 2 turnovers in 27.5 minutes of a 128-119 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

What It Means:

Hart made 3-of-5 3-pointers and that sort of proficiency may earn him a job in the starting lineup, as the rest of the Lakers made just 16.0 percent of their long-range shots. He will look to keep the strong start going on Saturday versus the Houston Rockets.

Hart scored 39.3 FanDuel points in Thursday's opener, more than doubling numberFire's projection of 17.3 FanDuel points.

Rodney McGruder makes noise for Miami in victory

Miami Heat shooting guard Rodney McGruder scored 20 points (7-of-12 field goals, 3-of-3 free throws) with 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 block, 3 3-pointers, and 2 turnovers in 34.1 minutes of a 113-112 win over the Washington Wizards on Thursday.

What It Means:

The points and assists are both new career highs and the rebounds tie his personal best. He should continue to benefit until Wayne Ellington (ankle) and Justise Winslow (hamstring) are healthy. The Heat host the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.

McGruder scored 39.6 FanDuel points on Thursday, obliterating numberFire's projection of 16.0 FanDuel points.
