• Avery Bradley
    G, Los Angeles Clippers

    Avery Bradley will return from a six-game absence to play against the Hawks on Monday and is in the starting lineup.

    It should be a low-pressure spot to get Bradley re-integrated with the rotation as the Clippers go with a three-guard lineup. He'll be competing primarily with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for minutes and it's a battle he's not likely to win with how SGA has been playing lately. AB should be back on the bench when Danilo Gallinari (illness) is ready to play again. Leave Bradley on the wire in standard leagues but consider him a viable add in 16-team formats and beyond.

  • Larry Nance Jr.
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance (left thumb sprain) has been ruled out for Monday's road game against the Knicks.

    Nance recently saw a specialist for his thumb but there were little details revealed about the results. He will sit out tonight along with Kevin Love (back) which should open up a lot of minutes in the Cavaliers front court. Tristan Thompson and Cedi Osman will most likely get as much run as they can handle and Ante Zizic should be a part of the rotation and a sneaky DFS play with John Henson (hamstring) also still out.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will not play in Monday's road game against the Utah Jazz.

    Wiggins did not travel with the team to Utah and his next chance to get back on the court will be on Wednesday versus Utah at home. With the uncertainty around his availability he may be difficult to start in weekly formats as the Wolves only have 2 more games this week. Josh Okogie and Jarret Culver will continue to soak up his minutes and Karl-Anthony Towns should continue absorbing a lot of the usage.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (lower back contusion) is listed as out for Monday's road game against the Knicks.

    This seemingly came out of nowhere as this the first mention of the injury. Love did only play 25 minutes in Sunday's game against the Nuggets but that was more due to the blowout nature of the game as the Cavs were down by almost 30 going into the third quarter. With Larry Nance (thumb) also out look for Tristan Thompson to get as much run as he can handle. Ante Zizic is also off of the injury report so he could be sprinkled in as well.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (nose) underwent surgery Monday to address a sinus obstruction stemming from a broken nose he suffered with the Knicks in 2018 and will be out indefinitely.

    Kornet was only averaging twelve minutes per game this season and was not a regular part of the rotation. With Cristiano Felicio (wrist) still out, this may open up a few minutes for Daniel Gafford but all three
    big men belong on the wire in most formats as coach Jim Boylen most recently just shortened his rotation against the Nets on Saturday.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. (hip) was not present at practice on Monday but coach Erik Spoelstra said he is "getting much closer" to a return.

    Jones has only played in four games this season in a limited role and just simply can not stay healthy. His potential as a defensive specialist has been on display in the past but with Miami's crowded front court rotation and his inability to stay healthy, it is uncertain whether or not he can actually reach this ceiling any time soon. He can be left on the wire in all shallow formats.

  • Ryan Anderson
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Ryan Anderson has been waived by the Houston Rockets.

    He played a total of 14 minutes in his second stint with Houston, and has not been relevant in fantasy hoops for a few seasons now.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantis Sabonis (hip) will play in Monday's road game against the Brooklyn Nets.

    Sabonis did not close out Saturday's game against the Bucks but the game was well out of hand and it looks like the injury will not keep him out of Monday night's game against the Nets. He will start at PF with Myles Turner back from injury and look to keep up his stellar points and rebounds double-double rate which has kept him at a top-40 ranking in standard league formats this season.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (illness) missed practice Monday because he is still sick.

    Dragic is still under the weather but will have a couple of days to feel better with Miami's next game coming on Wednesday at home versus the Cavs. With only three games this week all falling on busy days with at least ten games, he may be difficult to play in weekly formats but should still be held onto in standard daily leagues as he is providing top-100 value in his new bench role this season. Justice Winslow (concussion) and Derrick Jones Jr. (hip) did not participate in practice as well.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday will be starting in Monday's road game against the Brooklyn Nets.

    Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell are both out so Holiday will slot directly into the starting PG position as he did in his last game on Saturday. He is providing top-100 value in standard formats over the last two weeks with averages of 12-3-4 and 1.3 steals a game so he can be viewed as a popular DFS play and streaming option for tonight's game. Just keep in mind the Pacers only have one more game this week on Saturday, which already has ten games on the schedule and the five days off may also give his teammates the time to heal up and get back on the court.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's road game against the Nets.

    Lamb has been trending in the right direction with a questionable tag as recently as Friday but he will sit out his seventh straight game. The Pacers only have one more game this week, at home versus the Magic on Saturday, so he should have plenty of time to get right but for managers in weekly leagues, he can be safely left on the bench. The Holiday brothers, Aaron and Justin, should continue to get more run in his and Malcolm Brogdon's absence.
