Latest Headlines

Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, Joe Harris, DeMarre Carroll and Jarrett Allen will be in the starting lineup against the Pistons on Wednesday.

The Nets will roll the dice with Carroll against Blake Griffin. We'll also see if the Nets have anything cooking at the deadline, so it's possible something can change in the next hour. If you're going to use a Net in DFS, there could be some risk.

JaMychal Green (left knee soreness) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Green was fine for the Grizzlies' opener with nine points and seven boards in 25 minutes, despite dealing with a sore shoulder. The knee injury is new but the fact that he's probable suggests it isn't serious. If he does eventually miss time, Jaren Jackson Jr. could find himself in a starting role sooner than expected.

Julius Randle (left foot plantar fasciitis) is listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

It's nice to see that he's probable to play, but fantasy owners never want to hear the words 'plantar fasciitis' associated with guys they own. It's an injury that requires rest and the only good news is that this is the first we've heard of it, and Randle looked great in the season opener on Wednesday. Just sit tight as we await more information.

Wayne Ellington (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Wizards.

Ellington missed all of camp and the first game of the season with that sore left ankle, and we'd expect that pattern to hold for tonight's game. Justise Winslow (hamstring) is doubtful and both Dion Waiters (ankle) and James Johnson (hernia) have already been ruled out, so Josh Richardson could again be flirting with 40 minutes tonight.

Justise Winslow (right hamstring) is doubtful to play in Thursday's game against the Wizards.

Today's game will be the second of a back-to-back set, meaning the Heat haven't had any additional practice time since Wednesday, so it wouldn't anticipate having Winslow available tonight. Derrick Jones Jr. and Rodney McGruder will see an uptick in minutes with Winslow and James Johnson (hernia) out, but neither of those guys are an attractive option in most leagues.
Oct 18 - 1:34 PM

James Johnson (hernia) will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Wizards, as expected.

Johnson still needs to get in a few more practices before the Heat will be comfortable throwing him out there, so for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Saturday's game against the Hornets. With Johnson unavailable, Justise Winslow (hamstring) doubtful and Wayne Ellington (ankle) questionable, Josh Richardson will again get all the run he can handle and there will be more minutes for Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr.
Oct 18 - 1:28 PM

Delon Wright (groin) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice and is questionable to play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Wright is making progress, but considering he still hasn't gone through any full-contact, 5-on-5 work, we wouldn't expect to see him take the floor on Friday night. Fred VanVleet should be able to flirt with minutes in the mid-20s while Wright is out.
Oct 18 - 1:07 PM

Dwight Howard (back) was a full participant at Thursday's shootaround and is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's season opener vs. Miami.

D12 was spotted going through contact work with Thomas Bryant well after shootaround ended, and he's been able to practice four days in a row, so things are trending in a positive direction regarding his status for tonight's opener against Miami. If he is able to play, he'll likely be dealing with a minutes limit, so he's not the most attractive DFS target. Ian Mahinmi won't be worth using in most leagues if Howard is active.
Oct 18 - 12:46 PM

Denzel Valentine (left ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's regular-season opener against the 76ers.

Valentine still hasn't been able to go through a full practice, so until that happens, we don't expect to see him on the court. Justin Holiday should get all the run he can handle with Valentine unavailable, and Antonio Blakeney might be able to get into the rotation. Valentine belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Oct 18 - 12:03 PM

Kris Dunn (personal) will not suit up for Thursday's season opener against the 76ers, and Cameron Payne will draw the start in his place.

It's unclear exactly why Dunn will be away from the team tonight, but hopefully, he'll be able to get back in time for Saturday's game against the Pistons. Cameron Payne can be hit-or-miss, but he should be looking at quality minutes tonight, which puts him on the radar as a potential punt play in DFS. Tyler Ulis or Ryan Arcidiacono should also see minutes tonight with Dunn unavailable.
Oct 18 - 12:02 PM

Trade talks involving Jimmy Butler have gone "dormant," according to sources of Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Butler remains adamant that he'd like to be traded, and Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has said on numerous occasions that he'll honor that request, but some GMs around the league have questioned whether or not Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden are truly interested in getting a deal done. Trading a player of Butler's caliber is a complicated process, so this is something that could certainly drag out all the way until the trade deadline.
Oct 18 - 9:55 AM

Tobias Harris scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes during a 107-98 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Those three blocks match his career high. Coach Doc Rivers has said he could see Tobias having a career year, and it'll help if Harris is going to get 41 minutes in games. Harris has been about as solid as it gets over the years, and now he'll have added upside as he logs minutes next to low-usage players. He should be in line for early-round fantasy production and the added durability makes him a strong fantasy asset.
