  • Danny Green
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Danny Green is dealing with right hip soreness that has him doubtful to take the floor vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Green has lived up to his name this season, and remains one of the most inconsistent options in standard leagues. He's a steadier option for a 16-team league, but he's still worth a stream if you are fishing for 3-pointers along with some steals and blocks. While Green is out the Lakers will send more minutes towards Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Dealing with a right ankle sprain, Jordan Poole is questionable to face the Suns on Saturday.

    With Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) set to return in the not too distant future Poole's value is going to take a hit in short order. Everyone's value on the Warriors is in flux beyond Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green (when active), so it is hard to count on anybody for more than a couple games. If you have Poole in standard leagues you can wait to see when Curry returns, but don't be afraid to dump him for a hot hand with better long-term prospects.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell (left finger fracture) is active for Friday's game against the Hornets, and he will be in the starting lineup.

    Powell's recovery came awfully fast, and it's a good thing as the Raptors needed some more bodies to fill in for Fred VanVleet (left shoulder). Powell was giving late mid-round value earlier in the year, but it could be tougher to do that while his teammate's are healthy. If you have space he is worth a 12-team flyer to see how the roster shuffles out. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will also start on Friday, in place of Serge Ibaka. RHJ should have some value as long as Ibaka and Marc Gasol are out, although Chris Boucher may have even more upside for his blocks.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    Andrew Wiggins is probable (back) to take on the Suns on Saturday.

    This is a new issue for Wiggins, who has looked like a nice fit on the Warriors as the number one offensive option. Things will transform when Stephen Curry does return, which should not be too much further away. Keep an eye out to see where things stand for Wiggins on Saturday. Everyone would do a little more for the Warriors if he was out of the lineup. Juan Toscano-Anderson is the best bet if you had to pick one player to target.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis has been listed as probable to face the Grizzlies on Saturday due to his sore left elbow.

    Davis is very much needed for the Lakers while LeBron James (groin soreness) is held out of the lineup. LBJ is questionable so his status is still in flux in comparison. Davis lives in the probable zone, and should be ready to ball out with top-2 value on Saturday.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James has been listed as questionable for Saturday's faceoff with the Grizzlies as his sore groin continues to recover.

    James' status remains up in the air for Saturday. There is little reason rush LBJ at this point, and this will likely be an ongoing injury monitor throughout the rest of the season. It's LeBron though, he won't want to sit out for long.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton is questionable to face the Thunder on Friday due to neck soreness.

    This is a new injury on the fantasy radar for Middleton, and he has been playing the best basketball of his career in 2020. If this does keep him out, let's hope it's nothing serious as Middleton has been carrying many teams these past couple of months. His role in the lineup would get distributed across the roster if he did sit out. The Bucks have plenty of depth to fill the void.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell (left finger fracture) probable for Friday's matchup against the Hornets .

    Powell recovered quicker than expected, as information on his injury was a blackhole until the last week or two. If he's ready for substantial minutes he could slide right into Fred VanVleet's (left shoulder) slot in the lineup, but it'd be a bit surprising to see him leap right back into the thick of the rotation.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder) has been suddenly ruled out for Friday's contest against the Hornets.

    This one we did not see coming. With VanVleet out the Raptors will turn towards Terence Davis to play alongside Kyle Lowry. Davis has been playing well lately, and should be in for a solid night of work for a thin Raptors squad. Norman Powell is also probable on Friday, although it's unclear how big of a role he is ready for. The severity of FVV's injury is unknown, so be sure to check back for a proper diagnosis.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka will not play on Friday against the Hornets due to right knee soreness.

    With Ibaka and Marc Gasol (hamstring) both sidelined the Raptors will turn to Chris Boucher. Boucher will have some value as a DFS or streaming pickup, especially if you are seeking blocks. Ibaka needs to return soon if he is going to continue being a mid-round value with Gasol injured.
