Mitchell Robinson (ankle) is set to be re-evaluated on Monday before the Knicks face the Suns.
Robinson is all but guaranteed to sit out tonight, as he was spotted in a walking boot yesterday. This is his third ankle issue of his rookie year and the Knicks are going to try and figure out a way to prevent more from occurring down the line. Luke Kornet will get more minutes in the meantime.

Jeff Teauge is questionable for Monday's game because of left ankle inflammation.
Teague's seen his scoring dip of late, and perhaps this is part of the reason why. He's still been able to keep his assists up and has still provided middle-round value amidst a poor shooting season, so he remains a buy-low option. If Teague can't play tonight we'll probably see Derrick Rose start, while Tyus Jones would see enough of a minutes increase to get on the board in deeper leagues.

Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers will not play Monday night versus the Suns and are expected to join the team on their upcoming road trip.
It looks like owners could juice the orange on the Suns' value one last time before these two muck up the situation. Oubre Jr. will likely back up T.J. Warren, while it still remains unclear on just how Rivers will be used.

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Jazz are one of several teams looking to acquiring Jabari Parker.
Parker's recent rotation demotion set trade negations into motion. It's clear both sides are disappointed the fit wasn't right and would like to move on, but Parker is not eligible to be traded until January 15. The report indicates that Derrick Favors would in all likelihood be involved in a deal for Parker and even though Chicago has plenty of big men a change in scenery could benefit the both of them.

Delon Wright put up 15 points with eight rebounds and four assists in a start on Sunday in place of Kyle Lowry as the Raptors lost to the Nuggets.
Fred VanVleet was also out in this one, so huge minutes were given to Wright. He was a great stream option for this game, but he is not worth owning as he is outside the top-230 in value this season.December 16, 2018, 10:44 pm
CJ Miles started on Sunday as the Raptors were very shorthanded and scored six points on 2-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes in a loss to the Nuggets.
He was able to add four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers to the box score. OG Anunoby also played poorly off the bench with seven points and five rebounds on 2-of-10 shooting in 25 minutes. Both guys are outside the top-300 this season and can be left on the wire.December 16, 2018, 10:40 pm
Kawhi Leonard put up a monster line of 29 points and 14 rebounds in a loss to the Nuggets on Sunday.
He shot 12-of-21 from the field and added one 3-pointer and four assists to the box score. Kyle Lowry was out in this one so Leonard had a ton of extra work to do on offense. He has been a top-5 player this season and should be able to maintain that value as the Raptors are currently dominating the Eastern Conference.December 16, 2018, 10:36 pm
Jamal Murray put up 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five rebounds and four assists as the Nuggets got a win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Murray has hovered around top-100 value this season and has the potential to improve that value while Gary Harris and Paul Millsap are out. He has averaged the most minutes on the team this season and there is no reason to believe he will end the season outside the top-100.December 16, 2018, 10:31 pm
