• Blake Griffin
    F, Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin has been a top-5 player over the last week even though he’s only had two games in that span; on Monday against the Cavs he delivered 21 points, 12 boards, five assists, two triples, a steal and a block.

    This was the first two-game span that Griffin had both blocks and steals since he joined the Pistons which highlights how anemic he tends to be with defensive stats. You might consider selling high on Mr. Griffin as he’s had injury issues in the past. If you can get a top-30 asset, consider your options carefully.

Fantasy News

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Omari Spellman is questionable to face the Lakers on Wednesday due to a left ankle sprain.

    This is an upgrade from Spellman's prior status of doubtful. However, Draymond Green's return has cut into his minimal fantasy value.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas underwent foot surgery and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

    Thomas can begin rehab right away, but he will likely be out for two months or more. Even when healthy, Thomas has not been fantasy relevant.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball will not face the Clippers on Thursday due to his right adductor strain.

    This isn't surprising, as he was not expected to return prior to Saturday. Kenrich Williams should remain in the starting lineup for now.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said that Brandon Ingram will be a game-time decision on Thursday due to right knee soreness.

    It's positive news that Ingram could possibly return already. He missed Monday's contest after the knee began bothering him following practice.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner is making progress with his sprained right ankle but is still considered day-to-day.

    At this point, he seems unlikely to play on Friday. JaKarr Sampson has been starting recently with T.J. Leaf coming off the bench, but neither has really distinguished himself in the last couple of games.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb has been doing light workouts as he rehabs his sprained left ankle and is unlikely to be available on Friday.

    Lamb hasn't appeared in a game since November 5. Expect Aaron Holiday to start as long as Lamb is absent.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid will miss Wednesday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

    It sounds like this is a load management situation for Embiid. He should be back shortly, but in the meantime Mike Scott and Kyle O'Quinn are likely to see more time on the court.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic due to calf tightness.

    Burke missed Tuesday's game with the same ailment. It looks like Burke will go through pregame to determine whether he will be available, but he's not a recommended play.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis will miss Wednesday's game against the Warriors with shoulder and rib soreness.

    The issues are not considered serious, but this obviously impacts the Lakers' rotation. Kyle Kuzma and Dwight Howard should receive more playing time for at least one night.

  • Dwayne Bacon
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Dwayne Bacon is doubtful for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies, due to right knee soreness.

    Bacon only played 13 minutes on Tuesday and that might had to do with the current injury status. Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk will see additional minutes while Bacon should be dropped in standard leagues.
