Jon Krawczynski: In Denver, Ryan Saunders says Towns and Wiggins will go through shootaround and warmups before deciding if they will play
Dane Moore: Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns are questionable for the Wolves game at Denver tomorrow. Robert Covington and Luol Deng will be out again. That will be Covington’s 31st game missed in a row.
Christopher Hine: Ryan Saunders said Towns’ injury was a re-aggravation of some knee soreness that was lingering. He will go through warmups before seeing if he can play. Wiggins is out again. Bates-Diop to start again
Dane Moore: Andrew Wiggins is questionable to play tonight with an illness, per the team. Wiggins was at practice yesterday but wearing a hoodie — which he usually doesn’t do.
Jon Krawczynski: Teague and Wiggins both available tonight. Important with Butler gone and the Sixers guys not available
Christopher Hine: Andrew Wiggins is out tonight because of a right quad contusion (same injury that caused him to miss time recently). Wiggins was hit again there in the Lakers game
Dave McMenamin: Tom Thibodeau says Andrew Wiggins went through shootaround without any limitations. He will play against the Lakers tonight, barring any hitch in warmups.
Malika Andrews: Andrew Wiggins (right quad) is out tonight against the Bucks. Jimmy Butler will be a game time decision.
John Meyer: Andrew Wiggins has missed 1 game in his entire career (330/331) so it's weird to see him leave with an injury tonight (questionable to return: right quad contusion). Josh Okogie should see more minutes in AW's absence.

Cody Taylor: The Magic announced that they have signed Admiral Schofield ahead of the start of training camp, which begins on Sept. 28.
Oleh Kosel: On latest Lowe Post podcast, Bobby Marks says he heard Josh Hart’s contract took so long to get signed because Pelicans were in holding pattern due to potential penalties from Lonzo Ball trade. “Did we need to use him maybe in a sign-&-trade to recoup maybe a 1st round pick?”
Sean Cunningham: Davion Mitchell says he feels like a rookie because he’s still learning all the new faces surrounding his Kings team, even though De’Aaron Fox said the Baylor product doesn’t seem like a rookie because he’s older. “Fox kind of took me under his wing.” pic.twitter.com/4YLryWCj2S
A month ago, Nets general manager Sean Marks expressed his confidence in signing James Harden and Kyrie Irving to contract extensions by the start of training camp, which is a week away. On Tuesday, he admitted he might need a little more time than he first thought. “We’ve had very positive conversations with both those guys, and whether it’s family members, people and so forth, I think it always helps to do these things in person,” Marks said. “With this being summer, we’re very cognizant of letting people have their own time away before we all get back into the swing of things here. We’re looking forward to sitting down with them over the course of the next week, two weeks, and furthering those discussions.”
While both are still currently entering the final year of their contracts, Marks doesn’t expect the lack of extensions to be a distraction. “This is something those guys know exactly how we feel, and I think they’ve been vocal about wanting to be part of this and build this together,” Marks said. “I think we’ve got an opportunity to hopefully build something special here for the foreseeable future. The fact that they want to collaborate, they want to come here together, they want to build this together.”
