• Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will not play in Monday's matchup with the Clippers and Luol Deng will start in his place.

    Wiggins has been shouldering a heavy load for Minnesota with their guard rotation in shambles, so this is a tough break for his fantasy owners. Luol Deng will start in his place while Josh Okogie should see increased minutes as well. Neither is a recommended fantasy play unless you're hunting for a cheap DFS option.

Fantasy News

  • Chandler Parsons - F - Memphis Grizzlies

    Chandler Parsons was back at practice on Thursday and J.B. Bickerstaff said that he'd be in the rotation starting on Friday against the Clippers.

    Parsons has been away from the team since early January but hasn't played since October 22. He can't be expected to play much in the near future, but if he's healthy — that's a gargantuan 'if' — there might be some deep-league appeal here. The return of Parsons will cramp the forward rotation considerably, with players like Kyle Anderson, Justin Holiday, Bruno Caboclo and C.J. Miles the most likely to be affected. It'll be tough to trust anyone beyond Anderson, who is hurt, when the Grizzlies get to full strength.

  • Dennis Schroder - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder (personal) was able to practice on Thursday.

    Schroder sat out the last two games as he and his family welcomed a new baby into the fold so he was never in danger of missing any further time.

  • Trey Lyles - F - Denver Nuggets

    Trey Lyles (left hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Mavs.

    Lyles got hurt in Wednesday's practice, and hamstring issues have the potential to sideline a player for multiple games. He already wasn't much of a fantasy play but owners in most formats can go hunting for an alternative. Mason Plumlee and Juancho Hernangomez should absorb Lyles' playing time tomorrow.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas (personal) will not play on Friday against the Clippers but the hope is that he can return for Saturday's matchup with the Cavs.

    It's a tough break for owners who were expecting JV to hit the gas right out of the break but the early returns of his Memphis career of been promising. Valanciunas has been coming off the bench since joining the Grizzlies but is trailing only Jaren Jackson Jr. in terms of frontcourt playing time, and we'd imagine that he overtakes Ivan Rabb on the depth chart shortly. Rabb and Joakim Noah will get some extra minutes tomorrow night but neither holds much long-term appeal.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) will play against the Rockets on Thursday.

    Hart was probable to play after resting up over the All-Star break following a PRP injection. He'll lengthen the bench but isn't a fantasy option with Rajon Rondo, Reggie Bullock and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all around to play similar roles.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup with the Rockets.

    From probable to out in a matter of hours. If the Lakers need a floor-spacer up front it'll fall on Moe Wagner tonight, but this isn't a situation that should yield much fantasy value.

  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyson Chandler (stiff neck) will play on Thursday against the Rockets.

    Chandler was initially questionable but is ready to go. He might not play much considering the matchup, but he should work as the Lakers' backup center either way.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) is questionable for Friday after going through a limited practice on Thursday, and he could be headed for an MRI.

    Evans tweaked his ankle in the last game before the All-Star break and is still dealing with some soreness. He's not a fantasy option, though his potential absence might leave more minutes open for Wes Matthews and Aaron Holiday.

  • Myles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner (bruised left hip) is questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Pelicans.

    Turner recently shed his mask, but is now dealing with a new injury. The big man is returning second-round value in a real breakout season and hopefully this injury is minor. If he's forced to sit, Domantas Sabonis and Kyle O'Quinn will split the minutes at center.

  • Mike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is now questionable to face the Rockets on Thursday.

    Muscala was previously listed as probable. The Lakers will be thin up front tonight if he can't play. We'll keep you updated on his condition.
