• Andrew Wiggins filed paperwork with the NBA that allowed him to cut ties with his agent Bill Duffy on Tuesday afternoon.

    They were right in the middle of negotiating Wiggins’ max contract extension with the Minnesota front office. Buffy is entitled to up to four percent of Wiggins contract since it was negotiated under his watch and his agency, so he’s already reached out to the NBAPA to make sure this is handled correctly. Wiggins was discussing a 4-year, $148 million contract and rival agencies as well as potential start up agencies have been reaching out to Wiggins according to Adrian Wojnarowski. He’s one of the best young players in the league and already one of its premier scorers, no wonder he’s a hot commodity.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the G League on Wednesday.

    Alexander-Walker hasn't been in the rotation for the Pelicans of late, so he's an afterthought in fantasy circles.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    It sounds like this will be the new normal for the Jazz going forward. Mike Conley will slide to the bench but should still play a prominent role. O'Neale will be a nice source of steals with more minutes coming, but we'll have to see if the offense follows.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley is expected to come off the bench starting on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Royce O'Neale. Conley will still play significant minutes, but he has disappointed this season while O'Neale is renowned for his defense.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will not travel with the Blazers to face the Pacers on Thursday.

    This isn't a major surprise, as he was already expected to miss the next couple of games. However, he could rejoin the team later on the road trip. C.J. McCollum owners should have some big numbers on the way while Lillard is out.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk has been suspended indefinitely for violating the league's anti-drug program.

    Monk's suspension will last until he is deemed to be in "full compliance." Monk had been on a nice run in February, but this news certainly clouds his status going forward. His absence could provide an opportunity for Cody Martin to step up.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric will start Wednesday's game due to the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr.

    Saric scored 14 points in only 16 minutes on Monday. Sporadic usage has really hurt his fantasy value, but he could be a decent DFS play against the Clippers.

  • Norvel Pelle
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Norvel Pelle will miss Wednesday's game due to illness.

    It's an upper respiratory ailment. Pelle has rebounding and shot blocking ability but simply doesn't play enough to hold fantasy value.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    Gordon was forced to leave Monday's game early. Ben McLemore should be the primary beneficiary of his absence.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Andre Drummond (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    It has not been a smooth transition for Drummond after being traded to the Cavs.
    Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Larry Nance Jr. could each receive a small bump in playing time against the Sixers. Cedi Osman will likely be relied upon more as well.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) is expected to play during Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    His return could mean fewer minutes for Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall. The Warriors have been very conservative with Green this season but he's worth owning for the rebounds, assists, and steals.
