• Markelle Fultz
    G, Philadelphia Sixers

    Brett Brown admitted that he was caught off guard by Markelle Fultz’s decision to stop practicing and playing games until he sees a specialist for his shoulder next Monday.

    "I thought they might move it up for him," Brown added with a smile, "but I guess not. So Monday is the appointment, and after that we'll know more." Brown and general manager Elton Brand confirmed that they weren't aware of any issues with Fultz prior to Brand receiving a call from Fultz’s agent which simply shows how the parties are completely not on the same page. T.J. McConnell is expect to receive the majority of backup minutes going forward while Fultz’s absence could open some more time for Furkman Korkmaz but both guys are considerations only in deep leagues.

  • Garrett Temple
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Garrett Temple will start in place of Caris LeVert (sprained right thumb) at shooting guard on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Temple might see more than his typical 20.8 minutes on Tuesday night but his ceiling is still pretty low from a fantasy perspective. There will be more shots available for the likes of Taurean Prince, Joe Harris, Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay (hamstring) is available for Tuesday's matchup against the Nets.

    It is a very encouraging sign for Mudiay to play in both games of this back-to-back set after he missed three games prior with hamstring tightness. Expect Mudiay to have his typical role off the bench on Tuesday. Mudiay is currently only averaging 17.9 minutes per game.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish (shoulder) is available to play on Tuesday against the Nuggets.

    Reddish suffered an AC joint sprain in his shoulder but will not miss any games as a result. He is currently in competition with second-year player Kevin Huerter for minutes. Allen Crabbe is also available on Tuesday but will only play if necessary.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len will be available for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets after being listed as questionable with a left ankle sprain.

    Len will come off the bench in Tuesday's game in favor of youngster Damian Jones. His minutes have been dwindling as the season has gone along. Len has only seen 20+ minutes in two games so far this year.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. returned to the bench on Tuesday and was seen wearing a wrap around his side.

    Porter Jr.'s return to the bench was an encouraging sign for his availability for the rest of the ball-game. It is worth noting that he headed back to the locker room after his initial return to the bench.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis will play on Tuesday vs. the Suns despite dealing with some shoulder soreness.

    Head coach Frank Vogel told the media that the plan is to play both Davis and LeBron James in both games of this back-to-back. Davis should be locked in as his typical dominant self on Tuesday night as he will be matched up against Aron Baynes of the Suns.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee arthroscopy) will dress on Tuesday but will only be used if necessary against the Nuggets.

    It is unclear if Crabbe will end up playing on Tuesday but the fact that he is available is a good sign. This is a situation worth monitoring to see if he ends up playing on Tuesday. His next opportunity will come on Thursday.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris will draw the start on Tuesday for an injured Blake Griffin (left hamstring/posterior knee soreness).

    Morris has shown that he can be standard-league viable when given enough minutes, so tonight should be a good opportunity for him to hold some value.
