Latest Headlines

Evan Turner (calf) is available to play against the Hornets on Thursday.

Coach Terry Stotts didn't say who was going to start, but that's not news. Moe Harkless gave the Blazers good minutes and maybe he'll see rotation minutes again. There isn't really a fantasy add to make here.
Feb 8 - 8:21 PM

Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Spurs.

This was the expected move with both Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram suspended, and head coach Luke Walton hinted on Sunday that Ball could have his minutes limit lifted, so these two should be looking at ample playing time tonight. Ball never really got to compete for the starting spot at camp, but if he plays well with the starting group, it's plausible that he may not concede that spot. His arrow is pointing up.

Will Barton (right hip/core) is seeking "second and third opinions" on his MRI results.

Chris Haynes reported on Sunday that the diagnosis from his initial MRI was a right groin strain, but the Nuggets are now deeming this a hip/core issue, and we've still yet to receive an official timetable. He could be out anywhere from a handful of weeks to a few months, but until we get official word, owners should just keep him on their bench or in the IR. Torrey Craig, Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles will pick up the slack in his absence.
Oct 22 - 3:25 PM

Domantas Sabonis (bruised right knee) will play Monday vs. the Wolves.

Sabonis sat out the Pacers victory over the Nets on Saturday, but it appears it will be just a one-game absence, which is great news for the Pacers and Sabo owners. Kyle O'Quinn scored 16 points in 19 minutes on Saturday but will see his minutes reduced with Sabonis back in the mix. Domantas was stellar in the Pacers first two games, averaging 13.0 points (on 64.7 percent shooting) and a whopping 14.0 rebounds.
Oct 22 - 1:27 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hip/groin) did not practice on Monday.

We are awaiting word on the exact nature and severity of Whiteside's injury. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. Whiteside logged 25 minutes on Saturday night, finishing with 11 points, 15 rebounds and two blocks. If he is unable to play Wednesday, Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk will divvy up minutes at center. Both would make intriguing DFS options.
Oct 22 - 1:20 PM

Andre Drummond (illness) missed Monday's practice with the flu and his status for Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers is uncertain.

We'll likely have to wait until after Tuesday's shootaround for an update on Drummond's status. Depending on the severity, a flu bug can certainly zap a player of his energy. If Drummond is unable to suit up Tuesday night, Zaza Pachulia and Jon Leuer would soak up most of the minutes at center. The Pistons might also choose to go small and play Blake Griffin at the five-spot at times.
Oct 22 - 1:19 PM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (personal) will make his season debut Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

Hollis-Jefferson was sidelined earlier this month by a groin/abductor issue, but that injury no longer seems to be a problem. RHJ missed each of the Nets two previous contests to be with his family after the birth of his son. His return is needed by the Nets, as Brooklyn will be without Treveon Graham (hamstring) and likely without Rodions Kurucs (ankle) on Wednesday.
Oct 22 - 1:06 PM

Marcus Morris (knee soreness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Orlando.

Morris looked solid in the 26 minutes he logged against the Knicks on Saturday night, finishing with 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes. Aron Baynes (hamstring) injured his hamstring in the Celtics win over New York, so the C's could be shorthanded up front on Monday. Semi Ojeleye, Jayson Tatum and Daniel Theis would soak up additional minutes if Morris is ruled out Monday night.
Oct 22 - 12:51 PM

Ben Simmons (back tightness) did not practice on Monday and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Detroit.

Simmons entered Saturday's game with some tightness in his back and exited the contest just eight minutes into the first quarter, and did not return. Afterward, coach Brett Brown said that he didn't believe that Simmon's injury is serious, but the fact that he's not practicing Monday is not an overly encouraging sign. Markelle Fultz, J.J. Redick, and T.J. McConnell would all see an uptick in minutes if Simmons is ruled out Tuesday. Joel Embiid would also likely see his usage rate increase.
Oct 22 - 12:30 PM

As expected, Jimmy Butler (rest) will return to the lineup Monday night vs. the Pacers.

Butler sat out Saturday's game vs. the Mavs, as it was the second night of a back-to-back for the Wolves. Both Karl-Anthony Towns and Derrick Rose posted impressive numbers with Butler out of the mix. They will see their usage rates dip back to normal levels on Monday. Josh Okogie started at shooting guard and logged 28 minutes on Saturday, but he will be bumped back to the bench, and possibly out of the rotation altogether.
Oct 22 - 12:13 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said that Harrison Barnes (strained right hamstring) will miss at least the next two games.

This is a somewhat unexpected turn of events for Barnes, as it appeared he was close to being cleared toward the end of last week. When asked about Barnes last Wednesday, Carlisle said: "He's making good solid progress with no setbacks that I'm aware of. He did pick up his activity and was in more non-contact things. We'll shoot for Friday, which should be a full practice day and see where we are then." Barnes should obviously be benched in weekly lineups that lock on Monday, as we await more details on his status moving forward. Dorian Finney-Smith is expected to draw another start on Monday.
Oct 22 - 11:52 AM

Per Ed Koreen of The Athletic, the Raptors don't plan to rest Kawhi Leonard in all sets of back-to-backs.

Kawhi sat out Saturday's game vs. the Wizards, as it was the second night of a back-to-back, and the third contest in four nights. Per Koreen, Toronto will be "cautious" with Kawhi moving forward, especially in scenarios like Saturday, which was part of a stretch where the Raps play four games in six days. Kawhi looked terrific in his first two contests this season, averaging 27.5 points and 11.5 rebounds.
