February 11, 2019, 1:32 pmAndrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.
It looks like Jeff Teague is on his way back and Derrick Rose has just retuned as well so if Wiggins misses this one they'll likely see some more minutes together. Wiggins is playing 35.6 minutes over the past week and he's capable of putting up points in a hurry. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

February 21, 2019, 5:46 pmTony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Tony Parker (back strain) is no longer on the injury report.
Consider Parker good to go for Friday's tilt with the Wizards, not that fantasy owners should care.
February 21, 2019, 5:45 pmTomas Satoransky - G/F - Washington Wizards
Tomas Satoransky (personal) has been removed from the injury report and will play on Friday against the Hornets.
Satoransky missed two games before the break but wasn't expected to miss any time beyond that. Make sure he's in your lineups.
February 21, 2019, 5:44 pmTroy Brown Jr. - F - Washington Wizards
Troy Brown Jr. (left ankle sprain) will not play on Friday, as he's currently with the Capital City Go-Go of the G-League.
Brown was expected to return sometime shortly after the All-Star break but the Wizards will let him work back into shape at the lower level, at least for one night. He might hit the radar if injuries strike or Washington fades in the playoff hunt, but odds are that he's completely irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
February 21, 2019, 5:42 pmKris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn (back contusion) is not on the injury report and will play on Friday against the Magic.
Dunn went through Wednesday's practice and was expected to suit up tomorrow, and here's some early confirmation. He's good to get back into all lineups.
February 21, 2019, 5:41 pmFrank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks
Frank Ntilikina (groin) will not play in Friday's game against the Wolves.
Ntilikina is set to be re-evaluated on Friday so this is far from surprising. He's not going to be a fantasy factor unless he can surpass Emmanuel Mudiay on the depth chart.
February 21, 2019, 5:36 pmDerrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat
Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee bone bruises) is expected to be active for Thursday's game against the Sixers.
Jones will be active whereas Goran Dragic will not. It remains to be seen how much DJJ plays coming off a multi-week absence, but deep-league owners should keep an eye on his playing time going forward.

February 21, 2019, 5:34 pmGoran Dragic - G - Miami Heat
Erik Spoelstra said that Goran Dragic (right knee surgery) is unlikely to be active for Thursday's game with the Sixers.
Dragic is traveling with the team and was said to be available, but the Heat look ready to bring him back very slowly. Look for Dragic to return to the court after going through some more practices with his teammates since he last played on December 10. He's not a must-add in 12-team leagues right now but should be a top-150 guy once he gets back to full speed.

February 21, 2019, 5:18 pmDante Exum - G - Utah Jazz
Dante Exum (sprained left ankle) missed Wednesday's practice as he was undergoing a re-evaluation of his ankle.
Well if you're going to miss practice, at least that's a good reason. Exum was able to go through a partial practice on Wednesday and we should get another update on his potential return tomorrow. Today's absence shouldn't be considered a setback.

February 21, 2019, 5:01 pmKevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks
Kevin Huerter (left ankle sprain) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Pistons.
Huerter has been playing a ton as Atlanta's starting shooting guard, so his absence will open up a sizable hole in the rotation. He was able to play through the injury in the final game before the All-Star break but it looks as though the week off wasn't enough for him to get right. Kent Bazemore should be the big winner here.

February 21, 2019, 4:58 pmFred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet had the cast taken off his left thumb yesterday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Early reports had VanVleet sidelined for five weeks after undergoing surgery to repair ligament tears in his left thumb, which happened a week ago. The Raptors' sixth man is hoping to play in some games before the playoffs begin but admits that's not a sure thing, though it does seem like an attainable goal given what we know about the current timetable. Jeremy Lin will hold down the backup point guard spot in the meantime and we'll revisit FVV in two weeks' time.
