February 25, 2018, 11:35 pmBradley BealSG, Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal scored 25 points with five rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three triples on Sunday.
Beal logged a team-high 37 minutes tonight and the squad is going to rely on him heavily without John Wall around. He’s going to see some bumps in his scoring and assists while they’re short handed.
February 22, 2020, 1:33 pmKevin LovePF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love (right Achilles soreness) will not play against the Heat on Saturday.
Love missed the last pre-All-Star break game with the injury but returned to action on Friday so maybe he is just sitting because this is the second game of a back-to-back. On the other hand, Love had a very poor showing on Friday with only nine points and one rebound in 23 minutes so maybe there is something more to that. Andre Drummond, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance all posted fantasy friendly lines in Friday's game and although this might be an annoying situation for Nance and Thompson going forward, we would hold for now.

February 22, 2020, 1:14 pmEric GordonSG, Houston Rockets
Eric Gordon (leg contusion) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz.
There was some hope Gordon could return for this one after missing the prior three and this update does not rule that out. Gordon was a fringe standard league player as a three-point specialist prior to the additions of Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll so he can be left on the waivers unless three-pointers is the only thing your team needs as he is averaging 3.2 of those per game this year.

February 22, 2020, 1:03 pmAdam MokokaG, Chicago Bulls
Adam Mokoka has been called up by the Bulls head of Saturday's game against the Suns.
Mokoka will provide emergency depth for the Bulls but has only appeared in six games for them thus far at 3.6 minutes per so not much is expected here. For what it's worth, the undrafted rookie wing is averaging 10.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.6 triples in the G League this season with a 37.5/31.8/70.0 shooting line.

Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) will not play against the Suns on Saturday.
Kornet has underwhelmed as the Bulls' starter over the last 14 games and disappeared in the two games since his 25-point outburst against the Sixers right before the All-Star break. Daniel Gafford will draw the start on Saturday and might be viewed as a short-term blocks specialist while splitting time with Luke Kornet until Wendell Carter Jr. returns.

Deandre Bembre (abdominal pain) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday
Bembre was originally listed as doubtful so this is no surprise although we have yet to learn about any details on this injury. This will be Bembre's 15th consecutive game on the shelf as the first 13 were related to a hand injury which he has now recovered from.

February 22, 2020, 12:26 pmBen SimmonsPG, Philadelphia Sixers
Ben Simmons (back tightness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Simmons missed Thursday's game and Sixers gave starts to both Glenn Robinson III and Raul Neto. With Simmons back and Al Horford now officially with the second unit, it is unclear whether it will be Robinson or Neto who will stick with the starters of the Sixers go back to Furkan Korkmaz. In any case, coach Brett Brown said he does not want to commit to a single starting unit. If even if Korkmaz, Robinson or Neto can win the final starting position outright, it is unlikely any of them can carve out standard league value with the scoring and depth the Sixers possess.

Khyri Thomas (foot surgery) returned to action on Friday after missing a little over two months.
Thomas played 22 minutes for the Pistons' G League affiliate, posting 27 points on 10-of-26 shooting with seven triples, seven rebounds, one assist and no turnovers. He should be back with main team soon but the 2018 second round pick can be ignored in fantasy circles.
February 22, 2020, 11:36 amMalcolm MillerSF, Toronto Raptors
The Raptors have sent Malcolm Miller to the G League for their game on Saturday.
There are no fantasy implications here as Miller has averaged only 5.1 minutes for the Raptors this season across 23 games. Undrafted in 2015, this is Miller's third season in the Raptors' system. He has not played much in the G League this season either as Saturday will only be his third appearance for the team.

Jrue Holiday finished Friday's 128-115 win over the Blazers with 20 points (5-for-10 shooting), nine assists, four triples, four steals and two rebounds.
This was an elite line from Holiday, who was very aggressive in attacking the basket as evidenced by his eight free throw attempts. As Holiday figures out his spots in this new-look offense watch for his scoring to tick up.
February 22, 2020, 1:48 amBrandon IngramSF, New Orleans Pelicans
Brandon Ingram scored an efficient 16 points (5-for-8 shooting), six assists, four rebounds and three triples in Friday's win over the Blazers.
Brandon Ingram looks more and more comfortable leading this offense every day and tonight we got a glimpse at his development as a passer and playmaker. As the roster gets healthy around him and he doesn't have to rely on scoring so much every night, expect his fantasy game to continue to grow and flourish – potentially adding some assists along the way.
