• D.J. Augustin - G - Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin tallied 23 points, three rebounds, six assists and three triples in a loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Augustin continues to hang around with back-end value in 12-team leagues and should be owned everywhere while he's playing this well. Odds are that he goes through a stretch that gets him dropped all over the place but that's old hat with Augustin.

  • Luke Kornet - F/C - New York Knicks

    Luke Kornet (ankle) will not return on Monday and Enes Kanter will start in his place when the second half begins.

    Kornet has been eating lately, coming in as the 53rd ranked player in over the past two weeks. Enes Kanter is finally getting some playing time after being ghosted for the past couple weeks so lets see how this goes. If Kornet is out for a while then maybe Kanter can resurface and become worth owning yet again.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes (foot) is questionable vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Holmes and Deandre Ayton (ankle) are both listed as day-to-day and hopefully they'll be able to get back in time for tomorrow's game. Dragan Bender will likely pick up more minutes if Holmes and Ayton can't go.

  • Deandre Ayton - C - Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton (ankle) is questionable vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Ayton is listed as day-to-day with this ankle injury so that's good news but with Richaun Holmes (foot) also out the Suns are hurting at center. Dragan Bender played 30 minutes in his last outing and has likely earned some more playing time so he'll be getting more usage with Holmes and Ayton out.

  • DeAndre Jordan - C - Dallas Mavericks

    DeAndre Jordan (left ankle sprain) will be available to play on Monday vs. the Bucks.

    It seems to be all systems go for Jordan who has yet to miss a game all season. He's the Mavs best fantasy player in 9-cat leagues right now coming in as the 71st ranked player on the season. He'll be matching up against Brook Lopez and the Bucks front court but he's a clear start in all leagues.

  • Aaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon (lower back soreness) will be out vs. the Hawks.

    Gordon missed Saturday's game vs. the Bucks and now he'll miss another with this back injury. Hopefully he'll be back for the Magic's game on Wednesday vs. the Nets but in the meantime, Jonathan Simmons will likely start as he did on Saturday.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard missed practice on Monday due to a "scheduled maintenance checkup".

    Coach Nick Nurse said that Leonard should be back to practicing with the team tomorrow which is good news. He's rested two straight games now and should be perfectly fine to play against the Kings on Tuesday. He's the No. 2 overall player over the past two weeks and aside from his resting habits he's been eating for fantasy owners.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (right Achilles tension) will be available to play in Monday's game vs. the Magic.

    Both Len an Dewayne Dedmon will be available in this game but Dedmon will likely get more minutes. Over the past two weeks Dedmon is playing 27.5 compared to Len's 20.2 minutes but even with that Len is only right outside the top-100. Dedmon's presence will likely stop him from being anything more than a top-100 guy at the most.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will be available to play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Dedmon has been a top-100 player over the past two weeks although he's been dealing with this ankle injury. He looks to be past it now and can hopefully get back to producing top-80 value. He's worth holding onto in all leagues.

  • Andre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol.

    Drummond didn't travel with the team to play the Wizards and the next time he'll be able to suit up is Wednesday vs. the Pelicans. This will be Drummond's second straight missed game and expect Luke Kennard, Reggie Bullock and also ZaZa Pachulia to pick up some more minutes. Pachulia is playing 26.1 minutes over his past three games and could be worth streaming vs. the Wizards.

  • Ish Smith - G - Detroit Pistons

    Ish Smith (groin) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Smith hasn't been able to stay healthy lately and has been in and out of the lineup a ton. He missed 19 games before returning on Jan. 14 when he played three more games before getting injured again. Reggie Jackson seems to have things handled at the PG position and he's playing 30.4 minutes per game. Smith isn't worth holding onto in most leagues.
