November 19, 2018, 3:42 pmCaris LeVertG, Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert (dislocated right foot) would not give a clear timetable for his recovery when asked about it Monday.
LeVert has been through many, many injuries in his basketball career, and he knows what it takes to recover. His diagnosis was best-case scenario after there was only moderate ligament damage with no fractures. The Nets statement the morning after the injury occurred said LeVert "is expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this season." It is tough to stash him in this situation before we get a clear timetable. He should be owned in all leagues that carry an IR spot. LeVert's full quote is in the video linked below.

Frank Kaminsky (left hip contusion) is listed as probable to play against the Kings on Tuesday.
Kaminsky may be in line for a big spike in minutes and touches with Aron Baynes questionable. If Baynes were to sit, Kaminsky would be the starting C and a name to consider in DFS lineups.

Dario Saric (right knee contusion) is being listed as probable to face the Kings on Tuesday.
Saric has quietly put up value just outside the top-100 in both nine and eight cat leagues. He may get a few extra looks tonight with both Aron Baynes and Ricky Rubio questionable.

The Spurs have recalled Keldon Johnson for the G League on Tuesday.
Johnson will provide backcourt depth for the Spurs when they play three games in four days starting on Wednesday. With Dejounte Murray likely to sit one of those games, Johnson may see a handful of minutes. He is off the fantasy radar.

The Warriors have assigned Kevon Looney to the G League on Tuesday as he works his way back from the neuropathic condition.
This is the first news we've had on Looney in a couple weeks and while there is no timetable for a return, it's a great sign for the big man that he may be well enough to get some work in as he continues his rehab. The Warriors could really use Looney's defensive presence.

Toney Snell (hip flexor strain) was able to go through portions of Pistons practice on Tuesday.
Snell's status for Wednesday's game against the Bulls wasn't updated, but that will likely come soon. Langston Galloway started the second half in place of Snell during Friday's game and may get the call again should Snell be unable to go.

Anthony Davis (right shoulder soreness) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
Though Davis has been dealing with the shoulder issue all season, he's been able to power through it to put up top-5 value in all leagues. Davis can do things on the basketball court that is simply hard to replicate. Keep him locked and loaded in your lineups until further notice.

Vince Carter (personal) returned to practice for the Hawks on Tuesday.
The soon-to-be 43-year-old still has some life left in his legs on season number 22, but he can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues with a minimal role.

November 19, 2019, 1:55 pmKyrie IrvingPG, Brooklyn Nets
Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets.
With Irving joining Caris LeVert on the sidelines again, Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to get all the run he can handle as the starting PG. Irving is putting up top-11/8 value in 8/9 category leagues to start the year. Irving's next chance to suit up is Friday vs. the Kings.

November 19, 2019, 1:43 pmDerrick Jones Jr.SF, Miami Heat
Derrick Jones (hip) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game with the Cavs.
Jones just can't get and stay healthy this season with only four games under his belt. When Jones does return he has defensive upside with some shooting, but his role is limited in a crowded frontcourt. KZ Okpala (Achilles) is also ruled for Wednesday's game. Both can be left on the waiver wire.
