Patty Mills is currently working through his rehab after having surgery in July to repair the torn right rotator cuff and he could return sometime in January. The Spurs re-signed Mills, despite the injury, to a three-year, $11 million contract as a way to show they like what he brings to the floor as the backup point guard. While the Spurs trust Mills to stay dedicated to the rehab process, there is a provision in his contract, via a "Likely" bonus, that provides incentive to stay on track.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been ravaged by injuries to start the 2014-15 season and this gave the players 10-15 on the roster a chance to show head coach Scott Brooks what they can do when given extended minutes on the floor. For some, like forward Lance Thomas, it was a good audition and for others it was not. Guard Jeremy Lamb falls in the "failed to impress" category, according to Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman.

Casspi an 'Energizer bunny’ off the bench

Forward Omri Casspi played his first two years in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings as they picked him with the No. 23 selection in the 2009 draft. Casspi played well for the Kings, but was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in June of 2011 for J.J. Hickson. Casspi struggled to find a role with the Cavs over two years and played last season in Houston. Casspi had always wanted to return to Sacramento and he got that option as the New Orleans Pelicans waived him on July 23 after he was acquired on July 14 as part of a multi-player deal with the Rockets. On Sept. 17 he signed a one-year contract with the Kings and he's back to having a major role off the bench with the team.

There has been some speculation that rookie guard Marcus Smart might return to the active roster on Friday, but after Wednesday's practice it's doubtful his ankle will be well enough to play against the Chicago Bulls. Smart sprained his left ankle a few weeks ago and he still had issues with it on Wednesday, which is why he could not make it all the way through practice. Head coach Brad Stevens says there is no rush for Smart to return to game action.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were allowed to have a 16th player on the roster for almost three weeks due to all their injuries. Well, they may get Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Mitch McGary back within the next three games, so the decision was mad not to petition the league for another exemption. As a result, the Thunder made a move late Wednesday by placing Sebastian Telfair on waivers so they could keep Ish Smith the roster, according to ESPN.com's Royce Young.
