DeMar DeRozan (left ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

DeRozan missed his first game of the season on Friday, but stated after the game that he would "without a doubt" be ready to suit up for Sunday's game. He's been slumping a bit, so hopefully a night off gets him back on track.

Taurean Prince will not have a minutes restriction against the Celtics on Saturday.

Prince missed a substantial amount of time due to an ankle injury and saw his time limited in his first two games back. Him returning to a larger role will take time away from Kevin Huerter and DeAndre Bembry.
Jan 19 - 5:51 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will start against Boston on Saturday.

An ankle issue kept him out for the last two games, but he had some time to heal after the Tuesday game. Dedmon was playing well before his injury and should be in the 20s for playing time, so he is worth owning in standard leagues while he's still active on the Hawks roster.
Jan 19 - 5:50 PM

Lou Williams (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Spurs.

After Friday's game, coach Doc Rivers even dropped a "for sure" that he was not expecting Williams to suit up, so he's almost certainly out here. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was praised by Rivers and was encouraged to score, leading to 24 points against the Warriors. Jerome Robinson could be in the rotation again with more Tyrone Wallace while the other rotation pieces should see more shots.
Jan 19 - 5:46 PM

Danilo Gallinari (back spasms) is listed as doubtful for Sunday against the Spurs.

He suffered the injury last night and did not return. Coach Doc Rivers said that Gallo was trying to play through it, but he eventually pulled the plug as he battled the injury. Plus, he has a history of back problems. The Clippers had to go with two-center lineups to offset the loss of Gallo, and they could also play more three-guard lineups. Tobias Harris has strong splits without Gallo and Lou Williams (hamstring) off the floor while Tyrone Wallace, Johnathan Motley and Mike Scott should see more action.
Jan 19 - 5:43 PM

Josh Richardson (illness) is questionable to face the Bulls on Saturday.

Richardson was originally listed as probable earlier in the day, but has been downgraded before game-time. He sat out the team's last game on Friday, giving more time to Dwyane Wade, Derrick Jones, as well as Tyler Johnson who got the start. Check back before tip-off for confirmation.
Jan 19 - 5:38 PM

Tristan Thompson (foot) is listed as out for Saturday against the Nuggets.

He did not play on Friday night, so being out today means that the back-to-back may not necessarily be a factor for keeping Thompson out. With him out of the lineup, Ante Zizic gets a date with Nikola Jokic, and he makes sense as a streamer or DFS play.
Jan 19 - 5:38 PM

Trae Young (illness) is available to play against the Celtics on Saturday.

Young, as well as John Collins, were both sick, but are each going to suit up against Boston. He'll have a tough matchup against Marcus Smart, but it's good that he'll be able to give it a go.
Jan 19 - 5:34 PM

John Collins (illness) and Trae Young (illness) are available against the Celtics on Saturday.

They were both called probable for this game earlier today, so perhaps their illness were closer to Tuesday after that game. Collins had some time off since that game to get his ankle right, so he should be busy against a smaller Marcus Morris against him.
Jan 19 - 5:34 PM

D.J. Augustin, Evan Fournier, Jonathon Simmons, Jonathan Isaac and Nikola Vucevic will start against the Bucks on Saturday.

Simmons was out of the rotation on Friday with Wes Iwundu ahead of him on the wing and Isaiah Briscoe ahead of him at the point. He'll move into the starting lineup for Aaron Gordon (back) to allow coach Steve Clifford to keep his rotations similar. Terrence Ross should see even more minutes tonight and has played well, and this could help get Isaac going after an inept offensive month.
Jan 19 - 5:16 PM

Aaron Gordon (back) will not play Saturday against the Bucks.

He suffered the back injury in the second half on Friday and did not return. Gordon had a back issue earlier in the year and missed 1.5 games, so the Magic will keep him out in a back-to-back set. It'll be Jonathon Simmons moving into the first unit after being out of the rotation on Friday while Jonathan Isaac should benefit because he has better slits with Gordon off the floor.
Jan 19 - 5:11 PM

Ish Smith (groin) is questionable Saturday against the Kings.

He suffered a groin injury on Friday night and did not return. Smith had a groin issue keep him out a month and he just returned this week, but the Pistons said it wasn't an aggravation. If he can't go, Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and Bruce Brown could see a little more run.
Jan 19 - 5:08 PM

Jamal Crawford (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Hornets.

Coach Igor Kokoskov said earlier this month that he wanted to play Elie Okobo and De'Anthony Melton more, so Crawford won't be a lock to re-enter the rotation when he's healthy. His absence also helps Mikal Bridges.
Jan 19 - 3:38 PM

Joel Embiid (back) will play Saturday against the Thunder.

He was a true game-time decision and gets the green light even later than the Thursday game against the Pacers. Embiid will have to fight through his back issue yet again, and hopefully he looks more loose in the first half unlike on Thursday. It'll be interesting to see how he handles Steven Adams' physicality.
Jan 19 - 3:23 PM

Markelle Fultz (shoulder) has returned to Philadelphia to continue his rehabilitation with the Sixers, but there is still no timetable for his return to the lineup.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Fultz has been undergoing therapy for thoracic outlet syndrome in L.A. since leaving the Sixers in early December. The team has had staff in California observing his progress, and now Fultz will work at team's facility to try to ramp up for an eventual return to the season. He should be left on waiver wires in fantasy leagues for the time being.
