• Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons flourished on Saturday with 28 points (12-of-15 shooting), 10 rebounds, eight assists and four steals in a 108-91 victory over the Lakers.

    LeBron James passed Kobe Bryant on the career scoring list, but Ben Simmons ruined his night and dominated on both ends of the court in an impressive win for a short-handed Sixers team. Simmons was already on a roll with Joel Embiid out and will be even better with Josh Richardson also sidelined. Ben Simmons owners will enjoy the next few weeks.

  • Wilson Chandler
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    Wilson Chandler is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Chandler missed the last game due to a personal matter but appears on track for a return on Friday. He provides depth for the Nets but is off the standard league radar at this time.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal reasons) is officially questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    WCS is in jeopardy of missing his fifth straight game on Friday and has little to no value when Kristaps Porziņģis is healthy. WCS has some streaming appeal if he is given spot-starts down the road but can be left on the wire in standard leagues.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo (right ankle sprain) is probable for Friday's matchup vs. the Mavs.

    Adebayo didn't appear to be hampered by his ankle sprain on Wednesday as he was three assists shy of a triple-double. Bam appears on track to play but check for an update ahead of tip-off tomorrow.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Dončić (left thumb sprain) is questionable heading into Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Dončić injured his thumb during the first half of Wednesday's game but was able to play through the injury. With Jalen Brunson (shoulder) already ruled out, Delon Wright, J.J. Barea and Seth Curry will all see increased value if Dončić sits out.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) is questionable ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Hornets.

    Ibaka has seen his role expand with Marc Gasol (hamstring) sidelined. He has played well but struggled mightily against the Bucks on Tuesday. If Ibaka misses time, Chris Boucher could have streaming appeal in the short-term while the Raptors will be forced to play small.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) will play against the Lakers on Thursday night.

    Quite a few players will take a hit with Green’s return after a two-game absence. Draymond should have an easier time on Thursday as the Lakers will be without LeBron James (groin). Eric Paschall, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Ky Bowman will all see less minutes with Green back.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry (abdominal pain) will sit out of Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    The Hawks are deep at the wing position so Bembry will have a tough time producing fantasy value whenever he is able to make his return. He can be left on the wire for the rest of the season.

  • Jalen Brunson
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim MacMahon of ESPN has reported that the Mavs fear Jalen Brunson has a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will play through the rest of the regular season but post-season surgery is a possibility.

    Brunson has given the Mavs a good rotation guard off the bench this season but is off the fantasy radar outside of 30-team leagues.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Damian Jones (flu-like symptoms) is questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    There appears to be a sickness going around the Hawks locker room as Trae Young has also been sick recently. With Clint Capela (heel) and Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) both ruled out for a few games, Bruno Fernando is in line for a huge opportunity. Jones would see minutes off the bench if he was able to play but is well off the fantasy radar. Fernando should be added to watch-lists in standard leagues while he may have streaming appeal in 14-team leagues.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Nets as he continues to deal with flu-like symptoms.

    Young was listed as questionable before Wednesday's game and ended up having a terrific game. It will likely be tomorrow afternoon that we learn more in regards to his availability. If he misses time, Jeff Teague and Kevin Huerter will both see their values increase.
