• In an interview with Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders, forward Aaron Gordon says he’s “looking to take on a bigger scoring role” for the Magic next season.

    “I think (Frank Vogel) wants me to do a whole lot of everything, from defending to distributing to scoring,” Gordon said. “We’re going to need to score the ball this year and I’m looking to take on a bigger scoring role.” Gordon also says he’s been working on his ball handling, passing and shooting this offseason. The 20-year old is primed to have a big year under coach Vogel.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.

    Tatum hasn't played since Wednesday. Daniel Theis has assumed his spot in the starting lineup, scoring a total of 31 points with 15 rebounds over those two games.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook will be held out of Monday's game for rest purposes.

    Westbrook has been sitting out one half of back-to-backs, so this isn't surprising. Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers should get all the minutes they can handle against the Jazz.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is considered doubtful for Monday's game.

    Capela experienced heel issues in December and they are flaring up again. Isaiah Hartenstein should see an expanded role until he returns.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (left calf bruise) is listed as questionable for Monday's game.

    Dragic missed Friday's matchup with the Clippers. Tyler Herro played a whopping 40 minutes in that game and could be used a lot again depending on who is able to suit up against the Magic.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) will not play in Tuesday's game.

    Michael Porter Jr. has seen his value increase thanks to injuries to Murray and Paul Millsap. This will be Murray's 6th straight missed game and the Nuggets are not sure when he'll be ready to return.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game.

    This has really become a chronic issue. Tuesday will be the 11th straight game that Millsap has missed. Jerami Grant has been filling in admirably for him.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    A Rockets source said that "it would be surprising" if James Harden played on Monday due to a bruised left thigh.

    Harden was already listed as doubtful for the game against the Jazz. This is nothing too serious, but Austin Rivers got 34 minutes on Sunday and should be in line for a similar boost in court time.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cavs.

    Snell missed the last one and, to be brutally honest, we hope he misses this one too. His main function on the court is to steal minutes away from younger, already better players like Bruce Brown or Svi Myhailiuk. Ignore him. In perpetuity.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (right knee sprain) is probable to play in Monday's game against the Cavs.

    Rose played in the last one, so this tag was expected. He's one of the more viable trade candidates in the league and is currently playing like a guy who wants to be in the playoffs. His value is at its peak right now and will surely drop if he's traded to a contender, so get whatever top-80 value you can get for him in a trade right now.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (left knee sprain) is surprisingly being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    We heard rumblings about Porter's availability on Sunday, but it got drowned out by the news of the day. Porter's sudden return makes him a guy to monitor in standard leagues. Jordan Clarkson is gone, Darius Garland is slumping, the Cavs figure to be sellers at the trade deadline and Porter himself had been putting up standard-league lines before the knee sprain. Keep an eye on him.
