Kyle Kuzma said he and the coaching staff have "worked on a lot of perimeter skills and playing at the three" this summer.

"Last year I played the three and the four, and I’ll probably play [both] this year, but just to develop my game as a perimeter guy," Kuzma said about his offseason focus. "Reading passes. My handling. Just working out as a guard really helps your overall game." With LeBron James set to soak up most of the PF minutes, it'll be imperative for Kuzma to fill in at the three for close to half of his playing time. If he can do that, he'll warrant a pick in the later rounds, especially in points leagues.

Deandre Ayton (ankle) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

Richaun Holmes is also iffy with a foot injury so the Suns could be very thin up front. If they're both out, Dragan Bender could have a very busy night for the Suns.

Gordon Hayward (personal) is available to play for Monday's game against Miami.

Hayward missed Saturday's game for personal reasons, but he's returned to the team and will be back out there tonight, which could result in a DNP-CD for Semi Ojeleye. Feel free to get Hayward active.

Marc Gasol (back) will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans.

Gasol is being listed as probable on the injury report, but things aren't official just yet. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off, but if he's out again, JaMychal Green would likely earn another start with Ivan Rabb seeing extended minutes with the second unit. Stay tuned.

Frank Ntilikina gave the Knicks a huge lift off the bench on Monday vs. the Thunder, finishing with nine points, five assists, two rebounds, one steal and one triple in 30 minutes.

Sure he hit just 4-of-12 from the field, but Ntilikina was everywhere on defense and had a few impressive sequences vs. Paul George (link below). He was also a +3 in a blowout loss. The Knicks haven't given Frank a fair shot this season, an odd move considering he's the No. 8 pick on a tanking team. His fantasy upside isn't the greatest because of his raw offensive game, but keep an eye on him. For what it's worth, coach David Fizdale said he sees Ntilikina as a defender and distributor "that can help us win next year and into the future" despite his name being in the rumor mill.

Wendell Carter Jr. underwent successful thumb surgery on Monday and he will miss the next 8-12 weeks of action.

That pretty much does it for Carter Jr. in fantasy hoops, so he can be sent to the wire in most re-draft formats. Bobby Portis is the primary beneficiary here, and there will be more minutes available for Robin Lopez, Cristiano Felicio and Jabari Parker.

X-rays came back inconclusive on Luke Kornet's left ankle and he is scheduled to undergo an MRI.

Kornet exited Monday's game with the ankle injury, and it wouldn't be shocking to see him miss at least a few games here. That should result in more minutes for Enes Kanter and Mitchell Robinson, with Robinson potentially moving into the starting group. For now, we'll be considering Kornet doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Enes Kanter reiterated on Monday that he's not happy with his role on the Knicks.

Kanter was told by coach David Fizdale that he's now the third-string center, but he checked in on Monday vs. the Thunder when the Knicks were losing by 21 points. He also started the half for an injured Luke Kornet (ankle), finishing with 11 points, three boards and one assist in 19 minutes. He said he'll let his agent handle the next steps, but it's pretty clear that a trade or even a buyout could be in his near future. Fantasy owners should continue to hold him while we see how this plays out.

Kevin Huerter suffered a neck injury while going through his pregame routine on Monday and will not play, with Taurean Prince drawing the start in his place.

Huerte went back to the locker room during pregame warmups and was not present when the starting lineups were introduced, so for now, we're going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Chicago. Prince is getting the start and is officially without a minutes limit, so maybe he'll see 30 minutes today.
Jan 21 - 3:14 PM

Kenneth Faried is expected to be available to play on Monday against the 76ers.

The Rockets will need to trade or waive a player before they can make Faried's signing official, but that's expected to happen prior to Monday's 8:00 pm ET tip. Faried is in a great spot to produce in Houston, so he should be owned just about everywhere.
Jan 21 - 3:11 PM

Paul George led the Thunder with a game-high 31 points (9-of-18 FGs) in a 127-109 win over the Knicks on Monday.

That's back-to-back 31-point games for PG-13, and this one comes on the heels of his clutch game-winning triple vs. the 76ers. He went 9-of-9 from the line and is now 20-of-20 over his last two outings, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples. He's on pace for his best ever season in real life and in fantasy, as he ranks 4th overall in total value for 9-category leagues.
Jan 21 - 3:04 PM

Brandon Ingram will be the Lakers' starting point guard for Monday's game against the Warriors with both Rajon Rondo (hand) and Lonzo Ball (ankle) unavailable.

Luke Walton said that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma and Tyson Chandler will remain with the first unit tonight, but wouldn't say who the fifth starter will be. He hinted that Josh Hart and Svi Mykhailiuk are being discussed, but we'd lean towards him going with Hart given his previous experience with the starting unit. Ingram will be tasked with increased playmaking responsibilities today and is worth a look in DFS.
