An MRI has reportedly revealed a Jones fracture in Zhaire Smith's left foot and he's expected to undergo surgery.

Smith suffered the injury during a developmental camp for NBA players in Las Vegas on Monday, and with training camp right around the corner, this is terrible timing for Philly's No. 16 pick. A Jones fracture is a tricky injury that typically involves a lengthy recovery time, and if does indeed elect to go under the knife to correct this issue, that could do it for his rookie season. He'll meet with a foot specialist later this week to get a second opinion, but for now, he's completely off the radar in all re-draft formats.

Norman Powell will start at small forward to move Pascal Siakam to the bench against the Wizards on Saturday.

The Raptors will elevate Powell to the small forward spot, which could give C.J. Miles a few extra minutes in the second unit. Powell likely won't be taking as many shots in the first unit and he hasn't performed well so far this year, so he's a dart throw in a DFS lineup or a stream.

Kris Dunn has been away from the team due to the birth of his son and is expected to join the Bulls in Dallas before the game.

Dunn will miss shootaround, but is still expected to be in the lineup come gametime. Cameron Payne will likely head back to the bench with Dunn back in the fold, which is a welcomed sight for Bulls fans. Ryan Arcidiacono will move back to the third point guard role. Get Dunn back in your lineups.

Aron Baynes draws the start with Gordon Hayward resting on Saturday against the Knicks.

Coach Brad Stevens returns to a popular lineup from last season, starting both Baynes and Al Horford. Baynes gets a slight uptick in minutes and value, but won't see a big uptick in usage or production. Terry Rozier, Marcus Morris, and Marcus Smart will likely benefit more. However, Baynes makes for a cheap flier in DFS on Saturday.

OG Anunoby will start for Kawhi Leonard against the Wizards on Saturday.

It's a new lineup for the Raptors. Anunoby and Pascal Siakam have played less than a minute together in the regular season, but they did start next to each other in a preseason game when several players rested -- Siakam went off in that game. Anunoby shifting to the three should open up more minutes for Siakam, so he looks like the better play here. C.J. Miles and Norman Powell could play more, too.

JaMychal Green suffered a broken jaw on Friday and underwent a surgical stabilization procedure Saturday morning.

He is expected to miss 2-6 weeks after this surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. It's been a rough start to the season for Green with a knee issue, a shoulder problem, and now this procedure. He'll be targeting a return around Thanksgiving. Until then Jaren Jackson Jr. gets heavy minutes earlier than expected after a monster line on Friday night.

John Wall (migraines) will play vs. Toronto on Saturday.

He didn't go through shootaround and he's played through migraines before. Wall looked like his old self in the opener with 26 points, and he'll likely be getting around 36 minutes again against Kyle Lowry.
Oct 20 - 5:27 PM

Dwight Howard (piriformis) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

He has been progressing and coach Scott Brooks was asked about it. "He's getting closer, you know, we just have to continue to give him some good work," Brooks said. Howard might be able to return next week, but given his history this could be a lingering problem. Ian Mahinmi will likely get the start again while Jason Smith, Jeff Green and Markieff Morris get a few extra minutes.
Oct 20 - 5:24 PM

Omari Spellman (ankle) is questionable Sunday against the Cavs.

He missed Friday's game with his left ankle sprain and was ruled out just after shootaround. If Spellman can make it back, he'll likely get minutes at the backup center spot. If not, Alex Poythress would serve as a DFS punt or streaming option again.
Oct 20 - 4:10 PM

Domantas Sabonis (bruised right knee) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

He's been stellar all month, but it would appear he sustained an injury in his 22 minutes on Friday. If it is just a knee bruise, this is likely a day-to-day issue, but there have been several instances where players require multiple games off. For tonight, Myles Turner should have an excellent chance for a huge stat line while Kyle O'Quinn will back him up.
Oct 20 - 4:01 PM

Jimmy Butler (precautionary rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavs.

Saturday is the second night of a back-to-back for the Wolves, so Butler will get the night off. Butler did not play at all in the preseason due to his trade demands, but logged 68 minutes over the Wolves first two regular season games this week. He joins fellow stars Kawhi Leonard of Toronto and Gordon Hayward of Boston, who are also resting on Saturday. With Butler out, Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones will see increased minutes playing off the ball. Rookie Josh Okogie will also likely make his pro debut.
Oct 20 - 3:00 PM

Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Ayton rolled his ankle at practice on Thursday and was initially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He looked fantastic in his pro debut, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers. He'll look to carry that momentum into Saturday's contest vs. the Nuggets.
