  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder dropped 31 off the bench on Wednesday night, shooting 13-of-18 from the field while collecting three rebounds and nine assists.

    Schroder has put together a few serviceable games now and is worth hanging onto in standard leagues. His value will spike if Chris Paul catches a case of the injury bug.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum left Wednesday's game in the third quarter with a right groin strain and will not return.

    Groin injuries can be tricky so check back for an update on Tatum, but he is likely going to miss multiple games. Tatum finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes. The starters and Marcus Smart should see a boost in value while Tatum is sidelined. Semi Ojeleye can be a short-term option in deeper leagues as the likely candidate to get more minutes in Tatum's absence.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum left Wednesday's game in the third quarter and headed to the locker room holding his groin.

    Tatum limped directly to the locker room which is worrisome. Hopefully it isn't too serious. Tatum's value would be mostly absorbed by the starters if he misses time. Semi Ojeleye could see more minutes but would only be worth a look in deeper leagues.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) is available on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Okafor is returning from injury on Wednesday along with teammates Derrick Favors and Zion Williamson. The Pelicans' front court just got crowded and Jaxson Hayes, Nicolo Melli and Okafor will struggle to have standard-league value with everyone healthy. Hayes is a luxury stash and the other two players can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Josh Hart
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Josh Hart (left ankle) is listed as available on Wednesday.

    Hart has played 30 minutes in seven out of the past eight games but only played 17 minutes in the last game with Jrue Holiday returning. The Pelicans' rotations got even more crowded with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday. Hart is someone to watch while the Pelicans figure out their rotations, but don't hesitate to drop him in standard leagues if he plays low minutes and has a dud on Wednesday.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose twisted his ankle on Wednesday but remained in the game.

    Rose tweaked his ankle but ran it off and stayed in the game. He appears to be fine.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (illness) is available to play on Wednesday after missing the past two games.

    Green missed Friday's game with a sprained finger and Sunday's game with an illness. Green will continue to be frustrating to own with these missed games becoming more common. He's also a shutdown risk and owners should try to sell-high once Green gets a few good stat lines in a row.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) will start on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Holiday put up 36 points with seven threes in his return from his left elbow strain on Monday. Holiday will take a slight hit with Zion Williamson returning, but he should be a top-40 player still.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday (sore right thumb) is available to play on Wednesday against the Suns.

    Holiday has lost his run of standard-league value since the return of Malcolm Brogdon and Victor Oladipo's (knee rehab) return will also put a dent in Holiday's value. Holiday is just a name to remember for when the Pacers' are short-handed at the guard position.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will return and start on Wednesday after missing one game with lower back soreness.

    Favors has been producing mid-round value while he's on the court. His injuries have been the only thing holding him back. Favors will likely take a slight hit with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday, but he should continue to start on keep standard-league value. His return combined with Zion returning is a big blow to Jaxson Hayes' value and Hayes moves to being a luxury stash only in standard-leagues.
