    NBA NEWS and notes 12/21

    BKN: Kyrie Irving – OUT
    • Dinwiddie is the guy with Kyrie out, I see no reason to stop playing him

    CHA: PJ Washington – OUT
    • Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyambo and Marvin Williams get a bump here

    DET: Christian Wood – OUT
    DET: Luke Kennard – Questionable
    DET: Blake Griffin – Questionable
    • Markief Morris is going to be a top value option tonight with Wood out and Griffin doubtful
    • Bruce Brown is a solid value target with Kennard out, he scored 40 and 50 fantasy points in 2 of his last 3 games when he played close to 30 minutes in each game
    • Andre Drummond and Derrick Rose get bumps with Blake Griffin out – The Bulls are awful vs Bigs and have nobody that can handle Dummond and he should get close to another 20/20 game tonight

    LAC: JaMychal Green – Questionable
    • doesn’t move the needle much

    MIL: Wes Matthews – Doubtful
    MIL: Eric Bledsoe – OUT
    • Bledsoe out is a bump for Giannis and Middleton

    MIN: Karl Anthony Towns – Questionable
    • if Towns is out, Wiggins, Teague get a bump and Dieng will likely be the starting Center

    PHO: Deandre Ayton – Questionable
    • Kaminsky, Saric and Baynes will get bumps if Ayton is out

    POR: Carmelo Anthony – Questionable

    WAS: Moe Wagner – Doubtful

    PHO: Ricky Rubio – Doubtul
    PHO: Deandre Ayton – OUT
    PHO: Frank Kaminsky – Questionable
    PHO: Dario Saric – Questionable
    • Tyler Johnson and Elie Okobo will handle the point guard minutes for Rubio
    • Okobo has been more involved in the rotation recently but they are both viable punt options
    • If Kaminsky or Saric play they are in a solid spot without Ayton on the floor – stay tuned as we’ll update this when we get official news

    POR: Carmelo Anthony – OUT
    POR: Mario Hezonja – Questionable
    • if Hezonja plays, he’ll probably start and get the bump with Melo out
    • if Hezonja is out as well. it gets tricky as the Blazers could go a few different routes
    • Nassir Little could start, or Anthony Toliver could start or Skal Labissiere could start we’ll have to wait and see

    Any questions??

    Lots of news to stay up on

    DET: Blake Grffin – OUT
    DET: Derrick Rose – Probable
    DET: Luke Kennard – Probable
    • big bump here for Drummond vs the Bulls who are just awful against bigs – He should EAT against them tonight
    • Boost for Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard with Blake Griffin off the floor – I would lean Rose over Kennard
    • Bruce Brown is in play with Blake Griffin out as well but he’s more of a GPP Play
    • Markief Morris is still be a solid value option with Griffin out – but not as solid as yesterday with Kennard back in the rotation tonight

    PHO – additional info @channel
    • Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre should have the ball in their hands a ton this evening without Rubio and Ayton on the floor

    DET – Derrick Rose is OUT
    • with Rose and Griffin out Drummond should get all the work he can handle here
    • not sure who will start Oh here are your options: Tim Frazie, Langston Galloway, Bruce Brown, Tony Snell and Svi Mykhailiuk
    • will update further when we get starting lineup

    MEM: Jonas Valanciunas – OUT @channel
    • with Jo Val OUT we should see a big bump for Jaren Jackson Jr
    • the Grizzlies don’t really have much depth so Jae Crowder should get a bump here as well and could play some Power Forward tonight

    MIL: Wes Matthews – OUT @channel
    • Donte DiVincenzo wil get some extra run here as I love him for GPP
    • George Hill was already as solid value and he’s a better value now with 1 less guard

    SAC: Bojan Bogdanovic – OUT @channel
    • big bump for Buddy Hield
    • Fox still coming back from his injury so he’ll be limited to 25 ish minutes so Hield is the big benefactor here. That’ll be about it before lock on some sites
