• Al-Farouq Aminu posted a relatively hollow line of 13 points, two rebounds and one steal on Saturday night but did salvage the game by contributing a trio of treys.

    Aminu has been quietly productive this season, having been good for top-90 output whenever he hits the floor. Much of that is driven by a career-best 2.0 triples per game but he’s also done well to chip in 6.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks. Aminu is a really handy glue guy to have on any fantasy roster and his name value should slowly start to catch up to the acclaim his output deserves.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry will miss his third straight game due to illness on Friday.

    With Curry out more minutes will trickle down to a collection of teammates. Perhaps Tim Hardaway Jr. and Delon Wright are the most likely winners, but it is hard to predict how this rotation shakes out on a nightly basis if you are not Kristaps Porzingis or Luka Doncic.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanović is a gametime decision for Friday's game vs. the Nets as he deals with left hamstring tightness.

    Bogdanović has given the Kings everything they could ask for in De'Aaron Fox's absence. If he is out tonight the team will turn to Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes to lead the offense, and minutes will trickle down to Yogi Ferrell, Trevor Ariza and Corey Joseph. Joseph will play through his left heel bruise tonight.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Dejounte Murray is returning to the starting lineup for the Spurs faceoff with the Sixers on Friday.

    Murray still has loads of potential and it probably has little impact on his workload whether he starts or comes off the bench. The more important factor will be when the minutes limit gets lifted, and if Popovich will let Murray and Derrick White take the floor at the same time.

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo (left knee sprain) will take the court on Friday when the Thunder meet the Lakers.

    Diallo has had some solid games this year, and while he is inconsistent, opportunity is available on the Thunder. He is a decent streaming option who should also be considered in 14-team leagues for the moment.

  • Chandler Hutchison
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Chandler Hutchison (shin splints) will be absent for the Bulls-Heat clash on Friday and is doubtful to face the Hornets on Saturday.

    Get Shaq Harrison in those DFS lineups folks. Hutchison would be getting the lion's share of small forward minutes with Otto Porter out, but for now they should all be heading Harrison's way. Harrison went nuts on Wednesday. Hutchison is traveling with the team to Charlotte but will be doubtful for that game as well.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke will play on Friday vs. the Spurs, as he continues to overcome any lingering effects of calf tightness.

    Burkes is unlikely to emerge with any fantasy relevance on the Sixers. He's more of a 24 or 30-team target now that he is over the injury. He is still stuck behind Raul Neto.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes will miss his third consecutive game on Saturday versus the Wolves as he continues to be inactive with a right hip contusion.

    Baynes had been a fantasy darling before this injury put a stop to his breakout run. He has been getting ruled out before gameday throughout this injury, and you could still be looking at a week or two before his return. There is no clear cut winner with Baynes out so far, but continue to monitor the boxscores.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) is doubtful for Saturday's matchup with the Wolves.

    This would be his second straight absence due to the injury. Rubio has had plenty of injuries throughout his career and the Suns will probably exercise caution in treating the issue. Tyler Johnson, Devin Booker and Jevon Carter will see some extra minutes and ball-handling responsibilities in Rubio's absence.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Suns.

    Okogie played through this issue all week already, and the Wolves are without Robert Covington (personal) and Jake Layman (left toe sprain) so don't count Okogie out yet. He's been up and down throughout the year, but has shown enough potential for consideration in 14-team leagues.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Robert Covington will miss Saturday's game against the Suns for personal reasons.

    This will be a minor blip on the fantasy radar so hang in there for a game or two and be ready deploy RoCo back into your lineup once he returns to the team.
