Wayne Selden (right knee soreness) will not play on Friday against the Cavs.

The same injury kept him out for the final two games of the first half, and there's a chance this is related to his right quad issue that kept him out to start the season. Leave him on the wire.

Mario Chalmers (ankle) is questionable for Friday against the Cavs.

It's being called right ankle tendinitis and Chalmers was not on the injury report for this issue as the first half ended. Chalmers had a hamstring and a shoulder issue bother him leading to the break, so again this is something new. If he's out, that means more run for Andrew Harrison.
Feb 22 - 7:35 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) will not play on Friday against the Cavs.

He was not with the team as of Thursday and it's unclear if he'll be with the team tomorrow. Parsons' absence is not related to his knee and perhaps he can return for the second half of a back-to-back set on Saturday. He doesn't have fantasy value in almost all leagues.
Feb 22 - 7:33 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay, Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr., Michael Beasley and Enes Kanter will start against the Magic on Thursday.

This Knicks will roll out a new starting lineup combo with Mudiay running the point. Beasley also had a minor ear irritation earlier this week, but he did go through practice on Wednesday and should be fine. There are a lot of shots to go around in this offense, but there will be a lot of inefficiency.
Feb 22 - 6:44 PM

Justin Holiday will not play on Thursday against the 76ers.

He's not even going to be in uniform, so this is a plot twist from the Bulls saying he'd be in the rotation. The easy analysis here is that Holiday is now a drop candidate in most leagues because his minutes will be cut back. David Nwaba, Denzel Valentine and Zach LaVine should soak up more minutes on the wings tonight and going forward.

Quincy Acy - F/C - Nets

Quincy Acy will move to the bench on Thursday against the Hornets.

There's a decent chance he'll stay on the bench for a while with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) getting closer. Although, Acy could be out there at center tonight for a handful of minutes, especially if Jarrett Allen struggles vs. Dwight Howard.
Feb 22 - 6:18 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie, D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll and Jarrett Allen will start against the Hornets on Thursday.

Coach Kenny Atkinson hinted he was going to make a move with Russell starting and he didn't waste any time. The Nets haven't had much success with this lineup duo recently, but they've also lost seven straight. If Russell can shoot the ball better and keep his turnovers down, maybe he'll have a nice finish.
Feb 22 - 6:15 PM

Torrey Craig (left hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

The Nuggets still have to guarantee his contract and maybe that's part of this whole equation. Either way, Craig won't have much value with the Nuggets fairly healthy on the wings.
Feb 22 - 5:25 PM

Kent Bazemore is not on the injury report for Friday against the Pacers.

The Hawks are expected to play their veterans in the second half, but there's a very good chance that plan changes. Bazemore did not play on Feb. 14 due to rest, so he's likely got a couple more of those coming the rest of the way. He's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 5:06 PM

Dennis Schroder is not on the injury report for Friday against the Pacers.

He was a surprise DNP-back on Wednesday and there's a good chance Schroder gets a few more games off in the second half, especially in a back-to-back set. For now, fire him up in all leagues while he's active.
Feb 22 - 5:04 PM

Tyler Cavanaugh (ankle) will not play Friday against the Pacers.

He did not practice on Wednesday and the team will just hold Cavanuagh out to start the second half.
Feb 22 - 5:03 PM

Antonius Cleveland (ankle) will not play Friday against the Pacers.

He's on a 10-day deal and he won't be able to make his debut on that contract tomorrow. Cleveland would likely only play if the Hawks sat guys out.
Feb 22 - 5:02 PM

Isaiah Taylor (ankle) is questionable for Friday against the Pacers.

The Hawks are not going to have Malcolm Delaney for this one, so Taylor would be looking at the backup PG minutes. It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but he did look good last week with 13 points on Feb. 14.
Feb 22 - 5:00 PM

Malcolm Delaney (knee) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.

This is a new injury for Delaney after he played 27 minutes in a start back on Feb. 14. Isaiah Taylor (ankle) is also questionable for this game, so the Hawks may be shorthanded at point guard behind Dennis Schroder.
Feb 22 - 4:58 PM

Channing Frye (appendectomy) will not play for at least the next five games.

He announced he had an appendectomy over the break and the Lakers won't be in a rush to bring him back.
