9/23/2016 Kevin Garnett, Min, F-C
Garnett announced his retirement after 21 NBA seasons on Friday.

Analysis: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Garnett and the Timberwolves reached a contract settlement earlier Friday. Garnett was signed for $8 million this season. Garnett, 40, easily the most productive player in franchise history, spent 13 1/2 of his 21 NBA seasons with Minnesota. He was drafted out of high school in 1995 and developed into one of the top power forwards in NBA history.
9/23/2016 Scott Wood, GS, SF

Millsap will be rested for three weeks and will miss the first two preseason games following a procedure to reduce swelling in his right knee.

Analysis: The Hawks say Millsap recently had ''a preventative procedure'' and will have ''phases of rest and recovery'' for the next three weeks before returning to full basketball activities. Hawks coach and president of basketball operations Mike Budenholzer says the procedure was timed to make sure Millsap is ready for the regular season.
9/21/2016 Thomas Robinson, LAL, F-C
The Lakers signed Robinson on Wednesday.

Analysis: Robinson played for five teams in his first four NBA seasons, averaging 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds. He spent last season with Brooklyn, starting seven games in 71 appearances. Robinson was the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft by Sacramento. He also has played for Houston, Portland and Philadelphia.
9/21/2016 Metta World Peace, LAL, F
The Lakers are ready to give World Peace a chance again. The 36-year-old told ESPN on Wednesday that he has agreed to a one-year deal with the Lakers, who are coached by former teammate Luke Walton.

Analysis: The 16-year NBA veteran feels he has more to add after averaging 5.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 35 games for the Lakers last season. "I'm excited about everything. I'm prepared to help the young guys grow. To play, everything," World Peace told ESPN.
9/21/2016 Khris Middleton, Mil, G-F
Middleton has a left hamstring injury that will require surgery, sidelining the team's best outside shooter for about six months.

Analysis: The Bucks announced the injury Wednesday. Surgery is planned for the next week. Middleton tore the hamstring in a workout Tuesday.

9/21/2016 Kevin Garnett, Min, F-C
The Timberwolves are working on a buyout with Garnett. The two sides have been engaged in talks for some time. When completed it will assure that Garnett will not return to the team next season.

Analysis: The 40-year-old Garnett is under contract for $8 million next season. Garnett returned to the Timberwolves at the trade deadline in 2014. He has served as a valuable mentor to a young roster but has struggled to stay on the court due to recurring knee problems. Garnett played 38 games last season, averaging 3.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 14.6 minutes.
9/19/2016 Louis Amundson, NY, PF

9/17/2016 P.J. Tucker, Pho, G-F
Tucker will miss 6 to 8 weeks after undergoing back surgery earlier this week.

Analysis: The timetable puts Tucker, the Suns' starting small forward and defensive stopper, unlikely to be available for the team's Oct. 26 opener. The 31-year-old played in all 82 games last season and averaged 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
9/14/2016 Chris Bosh, Mia, F-C

He said in a podcast released Wednesday that he ''absolutely'' intends to be with his team for training camp that starts in the Bahamas on Sept. 27. But he also revealed that he has not yet been cleared to play again, though he's confident that it will happen.
9/13/2016 Mitch McGary, OKC, F-C
McGary has been suspended without pay for at least 10 games for violating the terms of the league's anti-drug policy.

Analysis: The league announced Tuesday that the suspension will begin when he has finished serving a five-game drug suspension that was announced in July. After the previous suspension, McGary said in a statement that he needed to ''take accountability and ensure that this does not happen again.''
9/12/2016 Dwight Howard, Atl, F-C
Howard is recovering from a likely case of dehydration after becoming ill on a flight from China, leading to a brief hospitalization.

Analysis: The person says Howard became sick Sunday on the long flight back to Atlanta, which followed a promotional tour of the Asian country. He was released from the hospital early Monday after being treated with fluids and showing no signs of a serious problem. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because no official statement has been released by the team.
