• Chandler Parsons
    F, Memphis Grizzlies

    While Chandler Parsons (knee) has been cleared to play and participated in a 5-on-5 scrimmage on Saturday, the Grizzlies plan to make him a healthy inactive for the foreseeable future.

    Parsons has been out since late October with swelling in his troublesome right knee. He had been starting for the Grizzlies early in the season but with Jaren Jackson Jr., JaMychal Green, Kyle Anderson and Garrett Temple giving the team solid production at the forward spots and on the wings, there's really no room for them to toss Parsons back in on the fly. It's been a disastrous few years for Parsons, whose body just can't cooperate.

  • Ryan Broekhoff
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ryan Broekhoff (personal) did not travel with the team to Disney and his status for the restart is uncertain.

    Broekhoff was picked up by the Sixers a couple of weeks ago as emergency depth. He played 10.8 minutes per game for the Mavs this season prior to being cut in favor of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, sporting per-36 numbers of 14.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.0 triples. Hopefully all is well with the second-year wing from Austrailia.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker will have have restrictions during the seeding games but is expected to be a full-go for the playoffs according to head coach Brad Stevens.

    Walker has missed consecutive games on three separate occasions and 13 games overall with the knee issue since January so the Celtics will try to be cautious with him. It's somewhat worrisome that his knee is not yet at full strength after the four month hiatus so hopefully there are no setbacks.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    Mike Woodson was interviewed a second time by the Knicks on Friday as they are expected to make a final decision by July 31.

    The Knicks' candidate list is in the teens and it's anyone's guess which direction they go although some say Tom Thibodeau is the current favorite. Woodson also appears to be high on their list since he got a second interview and was the coach of the Knicks the last time they made the playoffs in 2013.

  • Myke Henry
    PF, International

    Myke Henry has signed with Italian club, Pallacanestro Trieste.

    Undrafted in 2016, Henry played 20 games for Memphis in the 2017-18 season and spent this past season playing for the Thunder's G League team where he averaged 13.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.1 triples while shooting 53.0 percent from the field. The 27 year old may be back in NBA summer league action next season.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry was limited to just five games in the 2019-20 season because of a left hand fracture.

    Curry was a consensus first-round pick and was set to post some crazy numbers without Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson soaking up shots, but an unfortunate injury destroyed the plans for the Warriors and fantasy GMs everywhere. He finished as a top-25/30 per-game player, while his total value landed him around the top-390 mark. Expect Curry to come off draft boards in the first round again next season despite this lost campaign.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss revived his career with the Warriors in 2019-20, averaging 9.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.1 blocks in 20.3 mpg on .545 shooting.

    Chriss flashed strong fantasy potential when he was being given minutes as a potential core player for the Suns, but he's been an afterthought since. The injury-riddled Warriors provided Chriss a great proving ground and he may have played his way into their future plans. Following the trade of Willie Cauley-Stein and the perpetual absences for Draymond Green, Chriss was able to string together a handful of weeks as a top-60 option. He might not reach those heights again but there should be no complaints about a top-135 campaign from a player who looked to be on his way out of the league entirely just a year ago.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Ky Bowman took advantage of a wave of injuries in Golden State, surpassing all expectations en route to top-225/250 fantasy value (8/9-cat).

    Bowman made 45 appearances and 12 starts, largely because so many other Warriors were sidelined. He had a few flirtations with standard-league value when he was the last PG standing but Bowman really didn't do much more than chip in assists. He shot .417 from the field and .308 from deep to go along with 7.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 triples in 22.6 mpg.If Bowman is this fantasy-relevant next year, it'll mean that things have once again gone awry for the Warriors.

  • Chasson Randle
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Chasson Randle made three appearances in the 2019-20 season, averaging 13.5 mpg while on a 10-day contract with the depleted Warriors.

    Randle has bounced around the fringes of the league for the last three seasons, and we're expecting to see him pop up in the offseason as a training camp signing next year. He managed top-420/400 value (8/9-cat) thanks to 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals per contest, so needless to say Randle shouldn't be a fantasy target going forward.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    In what amounted to a lost season for the Warriors (but not if you factor in the high lottery selection that comes with it), they received little from the likes of Kevon Looney and Draymond Green in the front court.

    Looney was never healthy in 2019-20, managing just 20 games and ending with meager averages of 3.4 points and 3.3 boards per contest. It was a similar story with Draymond, as the Warriors finished their season with the worst winning percentage in the league. Looney is on the Warriors' books for one more season in 2020-21, the end of a three-year pact he signed prior to the 2018-19 season. He's going to cost them about $5 million and a trade or a buyout is possible, especially if the Warriors opt to select a big man in the draft. Looney's days of fantasy relevance have come and gone, as he ranked 360th in 9-cat on a per-game basis.

  • Juan Toscano-Anderson
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Juan Toscano-Anderson made his NBA debut this season for the Warriors after much of their depth was traded to the T-Wolves prior to the deadline in February.

    Toscano-Anderson unfortunately sprained his ankle during the Warriors' final game of the season on March 10, but prior to that he had played significant minutes for the team in February and March. He spent most of the season in the G League with Santa Cruz. There's no telling whether or not he will be on the Warriors in 2020-21, but he has no fantasy appeal moving forward, wherever that may be.
