• Bam Adebayo
    C/F, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo started on Monday and scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting while adding six rebounds and three assists.

    Adebayo started tonight even with Hassan Whiteside (left hip strain) returning from injury which means he's a fringe guy for standard leagues. When Whiteside plays, Bam's value is too inconsistent to be relied upon but if he's starting he's worth holding onto to see what he can do with the job.

Fantasy News

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson is making progress, but his right hip issue will keep him out on Saturday against the Nuggets according to head coach Billy Donovan.

    Abdel Nader will get extra minutes in Ferguson's absence, but he is not much of a fantasy factor. Ferguson does not move the needle either unless you are in the deepest of leagues and have an injury spot to slot him into.

  • Allonzo Trier
    PG, New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (concussion) has been ruled out of his next two games vs. the Kings and Nuggets.

    He was doubtful just a couple of hours ago but it looks like the Knicks are going to play things safe with him. Kadeem Allen is being summoned to play in the game vs. the Knicks with Trier and Wayne Ellington also out.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green (tailbone) has been ruled out on Friday vs. the Wolves.

    This will be Green's fifth straight missed game and he will join Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Landry Shamet on the sideline tonight. The Clippers will be very short handed but with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George they're still better equipped than most teams.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. is once again being listed as probable with injuries to his abdomen, tailbone and head, and will likely suit up Friday’s matchup against the Hornets.

    We’re only writing this blurb to note the sloppiness with which injury reports out of Chicago are being written. Carter’s specific injury this time is “left abdomen surgery.” Of course, Carter underwent sports hernia surgery in early July and there is a possibility that he’s dealing with some residual discomfort, but there’s no reason to read too deeply into what may be another one of Jim Boylen’s convoluted motivational tactics. The Bulls had 11 players on their injury report earlier this week and only three players ended up sitting out the game. Carter himself has only missed one game this season despite being listed on the report for every single game. Be very skeptical of the Bulls’ injury reports moving forward.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook will play on Friday vs. the Magic and likely rest on Saturday vs. the Pistons.

    The Rockets are just trying to keep Westbrook fresh and they probably feel like they can beat the Pistons without him. Expect Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore to get some more opportunity with Westbrook out on Saturday.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall (sore left hip) has been ruled out on Friday vs. the Jazz.

    He was doubtful coming into this one so this is no surprise. Expect Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks to pick up some extra minutes in his absence.

  • Lou Williams
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams (sore right calf) will not suit up on Friday vs. the Wolves.

    He's being considered day-to-day and this will cause Williams to miss his first game of the season. With Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet already ruled out, the Clippers won't have many options in the backcourt and Jerome Robinson could see an increased workload.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker (forearm contusion) did not practice on Friday.

    Coach Monty Williams said that he's considering him day-to-day and he'll be listed as questionable vs. the Spurs on Saturday. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

  • Allonzo Trier
    PG, New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (concussion symptoms) is being considered doubtful vs. the Kings on Friday.

    Trier reportedly bumped his head while working out yesterday and is now experiencing some concussion-like symptoms. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but the Knicks will likely be cautious with him.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left knee soreness/left hamstring tightness) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Horford will miss his second straight game and this is what owners should've expected when they drafted him. He's going to take some days off and get banged up but this doesn't seem like too bad of an injury. Expect Mike Scott to benefit the most from Horford's absence.
