• Bradley Beal
    G, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal had 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting in a 119-95 win over the Cavs on Wednesday.

    He added three rebounds, three assists and three steals to the box score. His backcourt mate John Wall had eight points, five rebounds and nine assists. This pair should produce all season long despite the Wizards being a highly dysfunctional team right now. Play them both with confidence and hope they get things rolling soon.

  • Dylan Windler
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Dylan Windler (left leg) suffered a setback and will be out for at least two more weeks at which point, he will be re-evaluated.

    Windler has been assigned to the Cavs' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge. At this rate we could expect a 2020 rookie debut from Windler.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James heads to the locker room on Friday after committing his second foul of the game.

    James is tough as nails, so we're not too worried. Hopefully, it's nothing serious.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis is listed on the injury report with a sore right shoulder, but is all set to battle the Heat on Friday.

    The shoulder issue is irrelevant at this point for Davis who has been fantastic all season. Throw him out there and sit back.

  • Tyus Jones
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyus Jones will start in the place of Ja Morant on Friday for the game against the Bucks.

    The minutes are available with Ja Morant and Grayson Allen absent so it is possible Jones puts up a big line if he gets off to a hot start. It's probably more likely De'Anthony Melton takes advantage though.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk is able to play through his right finger discomfort, and will be out there to face the Bulls on Friday.

    Monk has not been receiving as much playing time lately, and is probably best left on the wire until you see him explode for a couple of big points totals. He is not the flavor of the week for the Hornets at the moment.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is unavailable for when the Hornets clash with the Bulls on Friday.

    Batum has been a disappointment this season, and it appears his days of filling up the box score are long gone at this point for the Hornets. At this point he is just mucking up the rest of the rotation for guys like Dwayne Bacon and P.J. Washington.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad tendon soreness) is a go on Friday for when the bucks meet the Grizzlies.

    Get Giannis into your lineup and enjoy the big night to follow.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will start on Friday when the Pelicans take on the Sixers.

    It is nice to see Favors get immediately inserted into the starting lineup. You may not want to throw him out there right off the bat as he works off the rust, but hopefully the results come quickly after the long wait.

  • Jakarr Sampson
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    JaKarr Sampson has been ruled out for Friday vs. the Hawks as he continues to heal from a back injury.

    Sampson is an afterthought on the Pacers and does not need to be rostered in fantasy basketball.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. will play through injuries to has abdomen, tailbone and head on Friday, as the Bulls take on the Hornets.

    As expected Carter is fine to play, and is just making our lives more difficult with these injury tags. It would be great if Carter made our fantasy lives easier as well and delivered something beyond his usual 10 points and 10 rebounds with little else.
