• Bam Adebayo scored 13 points to go with 13 boards on Monday night.

    Adebayo went 5-for-9 from the field and didn’t record a block or a steal. This might be his best game for a while as Hassan Whiteside is nearing a return. He can be left on the wire but is worth a speculative pickup if Whiteside were to miss time again.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (back) will start in Saturday's matchup against the Jazz.

    It's great to see that the back issue he suffered isn't serious enough for him to sit this one out. Expect a lot of touches coming his way especially that Zach LaVine (thigh) and Otto Porter (shoulder) will be out for tonight.

  • Salah Mejri - C - Dallas Mavericks

    Salah Mejri (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Warriors.

    Mejri has been a decent bet for per-minute blocks lately but fantasy owners will need to look for alternatives tonight. Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber should split the center minutes against Golden State.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    LaVine was questionable coming into today and went through a pregame warmup but isn't 100 percent, and with the Bulls having nothing to play for it makes sense to sit him down. So far the team seems to value its competitive spirit as part of their effort to build culture, so we wouldn't anticipate a full-on shutdown for LaVine unless his latest injury heals slowly. Antonio Blakeney might start again but Shaq Harrison is the guy that most fantasy owners will look at given his steals production.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams went back into the locker room after falling on a putback dunk attempt in Saturday's game against the Hornets.

    It could be a number of things — back, hip, or even a concussion evaluation after Williams took a nasty spill. He was making his first career start tonight and hopefully he'll be okay moving forward.

  • Kevin Durant - F - Golden State Warriors

    Steve Kerr said that it's "more than likely" that the Warriors will rest some players for Sunday's game against the Pistons, though he declined to see who might sit.

    DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are the obvious candidates. Steph Curry is out on Saturday but should be good to go tomorrow. All told it's been a fairly successful week for the Warriors' big guns, who will have played in at least four of their massive five-game week. The lone exception is Cousins, who missed two games for injury reasons.

  • Shaun Livingston - G - Golden State Warriors

    Shaun Livingston (rest) will not play on Saturday.

    Livingston and Andrew Bogut will get the night off. Their absences don't mean much for fantasy owners, but it does make Quinn Cook a viable DFS punt if you're feeling lucky. Andre Iguodala is on the board as well with some minutes at point guard headed his way.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (right knee soreness) is available for Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    Noah sat out on Friday night but it looks to be more of a rest day on a back-to-back than a serious injury issue. He's good to roll out there for rebounds and low-end lines if you'd normally plug him into lineups.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Gibson's second straight absence opens up more time for Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop, though there isn't much there for most fantasy owners. Dieng has the highest upside of the bunch but it would take some consistent playing time before he becomes a serious add consideration.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) will determine his status for Saturday's game after going through pregame warmups.

    LaVine was a late scratch on Wednesday and it looks as though fantasy owners will need to sit tight before making a call on him tonight as well. Antonio Blakeney started on Wednesday with Shaq Harrison, Wayne Selden and Ryan Arcidiacono filling in the gaps off the bench. Harrison's a steals specialist to put him a notch above the rest, but it's a weak group in terms of fantasy value.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (back) is now probable fro Saturday's matchup with the Jazz.

    Dunn is coming off a big game on Wednesday with 26 points and 13 dimes, so it's good to see that his back issue isn't serious. He's fairly safe to pencil into lineups tonight.
