  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae left the game in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle after stepping on a player's foot.

    Troy Brown Jr. is the player to look at after this news. Brown is ranked 109 per game in 9-cat in the month of January. He's averaging 13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals during that stretch and will hold standard-league value if McRae misses time.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae stepped on another player's foot on Saturday and went to the floor while holding his ankle.

    McRae has been a solid option for points the past two weeks, averaging 18.8 points in the month of January. Troy Brown Jr. would benefit the most if McRae misses time. Brown could have standard-league value while McRae is out.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry limped to the locker room during the first quarter on Friday against the Wolves after suffering what appeared to be a leg injury, but he is available to return.

    Uh oh. After the Raptors were finally getting everybody back and healthy Lowry is now the latest stud to go down on the roster. Lowry has come back from worse injuries than this, and it sounds like he will be fine and will be able to return to this game.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    After suffering a left knee bruise on Wednesday, Tyler Herro has been ruled an active scratch for Friday's matchup with the Thunder.

    The ruling is in for Herro who will sit out another game. If he is healthy there is no reason why he can't suit up for the Heats' next game on Sunday vs. the Kings.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    As he continues to deal with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder, Michael Carter-Williams is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Carter-Williams has not been roster worthy all season with the Magic, and that is not going to change even if he returns while D.J. Augustin is still out. It's best to leave MCW on the wire unless you are in the deepest of leagues.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley is probable to return from his strained left hamstring and face the Kings on Saturday.

    Conley's return has long been anticipated, and he can only go up after a lousy start to his career as part of the Jazz. He has not seen the court since December 17, and his return should hurt Joe Ingles' value to some degree as the two did not coexist well prior to Conely's injury. If he is available Conley is well worth a pickup to see if he can rediscover the early-round value he delivered for so many years in Memphis. He is simply too talented, and the Jazz are far too committed to this experiment to let Conley go on playing this poorly.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier is set to start on Friday when the Wolves face the Pacers.

    With Jeff Teague shipped to the Hawks Napier should be in for a nice run as the Wolves' starting point guard. A trade away from the team looms, but Karl-Anthony Towns is back to serve as the focal point of the offense, which should ensure Napier gets plenty of assists without destroying your field-goal percentage. Jordan McLaughlin has also joined the Wolves and will serve as the backup point guard.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro's left knee bruise has him heading for a true game-time decision to face the Thunder on Friday.

    It looks like you'll have to really keep your eyes on this one to find out if Herro is playing on Friday. Everyone will lose some minutes if Herro is ready to roll, including Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson and Goran Dragic. Herro is still largely a 3-point shooting streamer, and it will be diffcult for him to rise above all of the competition on the Heat's roster to reach standard league value.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    A right knee contusion will force Steven Adams to miss Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Adams' status went downhill over the course of the day, but hopefully, this is not even a medium-term issue. Nerlens Noel is set to return for the Thunder and should be in for a solid night of production with Adams out. Before this issue arose Adams was finally playing like a mid-round talent, but Noel had been pushing him into a timeshare for much of the season.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel (sprained right ankle) will be available when the Thunder meet the Heat on Friday.

    Noel will return after missing half a dozen games for the Thunder, and it is good timing as Steven Adams (knee) will sit this game out. Noel could see a minutes bump that would make him a nice streaming option if he is not currently owned in your league.
