    Anthony Davis and LeBron James both torched the Blazers in Friday's road win.

    Davis put up 39 points (12-for-21 FG, 13-of-15 FT), nine rebounds, two steals, three blocks and a pair of 3-pointers while James had 31 points (11-of-23 FG, 5-for-7 FT), seven rebounds, eight assists, a block and four threes. They're alright at this.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    R.J. Barrett (right ankle sprain) will be re-evaluated in the next few days, according to coach Mike Miller.

    Barrett suffered the injury after having one of his best fantasy weeks, raising his percentages to non-toxic levels and contributing across the board. Don't expect him back just yet , but expect an update on his status this weekend. He's not necessarily a hold in standard leagues.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett is continuing to recover from his sprained right ankle, will miss Friday's game, and is set to be re-evaluated on Friday or Saturday.

    It was expected that Barrett would miss at least one week of games, and we are now at that mark. We should learn a good deal more from the review about to take place. In the meanwhile, Barrett's production is being spread throughout the roster. Reggie Bullock has some value as a 3-point specialist, while Damyean Dotson, Frank Ntilikina and Allonzo Trier can pick up more minutes if they are the hot hand on any given night.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Coach Kenny Atkinson said Nicolas Claxton (left shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against Detroit.

    The wiry big man is suffering from an unspecified shoulder injury. He would've been a nice streamer in deeper leagues while DeAndre Jordan missed time, but the Nets don't want to commit to Claxton just yet. He's a guy to keep in mind late in drafts next year.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo's fractured right ring finger is keeping him probable for Saturday's matchup vs. the Sixers.

    The injury has had Rondo probable all week, but he keeps getting out there either way. Rondo still has the ability for moments of value, but when you balance it all out he is just a deep league play when he is healthy.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Coach Kenny Atkinson said DeAndre Jordan (finger) is questionable for Saturday's game against Detroit.

    Jordan won't be missed, although Jarrett Allen has been in a slump since his backup went down. Jordan is only worth a look as a rebounds specialist, although there are guys like Ivica Zubac and Dwight Howard likely available in your league, both of whom offer higher upside in limited minutes.

  • JaVale McGee
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee (illness) is questionable to take on the Sixers on Friday.

    McGee also missed Wednesday's game and has seen his minutes dip as Dwight Howard's role has increased of late for the Lakers. He is still useful for traditional big-man stats, but his upside has disappeared under these circumstances.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left hip soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Baynes was doubtful coming in, so this was expected. The big man has also been the subject of trade rumors, so he may yet regain relevance in standard leagues this season. It bears mentioning, however, that the Suns have shot down speculations. Expect Deandre Ayton to handle most of the center minutes, with Dario Saric filling in at times.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (torn ligament, left hand) practiced in full capacity on Friday but will not play Saturday vs. the Lakers.

    Embiid seems to have rehabilitated his formerly mangled finger pretty quickly, so this news is encouraging for a reeling Sixers team who also just lost Josh Richardson for a few weeks. He's still due for a re-evaluation on Monday, but the fact that he's already practicing ahead of that appointment is a good sign. Tuesday night against the Warriors seems like a good bet for his return date, though they don't exactly need Embiid in that matchup. Hang in there with the dominant, albeit brittle All-Star starter.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma's sore left ankle has him listed probable to take on the Sixers on Saturday.

    Kuzma has been able to play through the issue so you can plan on him being ready for action. Kuzma has been scoring enough to stay relevant, but his current ownership levels overrate how useful he is as a fantasy player right now. He's more of a streamer on a fully healthy Lakers' roster.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute) remains questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Sixers as he continues to work his way to full health.

    Davis has been in the questionable or probable range for awhile while dealing with this injury. He participated in a back-to-back on Wednesday and Thursday so there is reason to expect he will be okay for Saturday. Just check back on his status tomorrow.
