• - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D’Angelo Russell put up 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting with six turnovers in 30 minutes as the Nets lost to the Thunder on Wednesday.

    He was able to add four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers to the stat line. Spencer Dinwiddie returned to the bench and had a similar game in the same amount of minutes. Dinwiddie scored 17 points with two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer on 6-of-11 shooting. Both guys will see plenty of minutes and opportunities to score so play them both with confidence.

Fantasy News

  • Michael Beasley - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    Michael Beasley (personal) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

    Beasley will be given as long as he needs for this personal matter, and his absence means nothing in the fantasy world.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Miami Heat

    Tyler Johnson (left hip contusion) is probable to play on Friday night.

    Johnson started on Wednesday but fell victim to a blowout. With Goran Dragic back on the sidelines with more knee injuries, proactive owners may want to take a shot on Johnson in 12-team leagues. Assuming he can stay healthy himself, late-round value is a relatively safe expectation.

  • Jabari Parker - F - Chicago Bulls

    As per a report on Friday, the Bulls are actively talking to teams about Jabari Parker and there is "considerable interest" around the league.

    Parker is falling out of favor in Chicago in a deal that really hasn't worked out for either side. It makes the most sense for Chicago to find a suitor that can make the money work. For fantasy purposes, a change of scenery could be huge for Jabari, but the profile is limited mainly to scoring and rebounding. There's potential to eke into the top-100 in a good role, but whether that will come is the next big question.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala remains questionable for Friday's game with hip tightness.

    Iguodala's status hasn't changed yet as we approach game time. He has missed two games and obviously the Warriors are far more concerned about their long-term outlook. He could be back in action but even a full-strength Iguodala is just a deep-league play.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard remains questionable for Friday's game against the Blazers with a bruised hip.

    Leonard still carries the questionable tag, but the hope is that he will be able to suit up. The missed games are an annoyance given his impact, but it's better to maintain this now than have it get to a point where he misses a large chunk of the year.

  • Reggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock is likely to be available on Saturday as he recovers from an ankle injury.

    This was the expectation for Bullock who has missed the last five games with this ankle issue. There is some upside with Bullock to return some late-round value with his low turnovers and good perimeter shooting.

  • Damyean Dotson - G - New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson is out for Friday's game with a bruised shoulder.

    Dotson joins Allonzo Trier on the injured list for this one. With Trey Burke also on the mend, the Knicks will have to go to Frank Ntilikina who has seen some decent value shooting the rock of late.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin is available to play in Friday's game.

    Lin will return to the lineup after some injury issues that have continued to plague him this season and throughout his career. There is always upside here in Lin's skillset so we'll see if he's actually going to stay healthy for any stretch of time.

  • Dwyane Wade - G - Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade is questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies with an illness.

    Wade hasn't been a big fantasy factor in what seems to be his farewell tour around the NBA. There are nights when he flashes vintage Flash, but at this point it's more nostalgia than anything. He's a deep league play for counting stats.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine said that he is fine and expects to play in Saturday's game versus the Spurs.

    LaVine came up slightly hobbled in Thursday's game, but managed to walk under his own power. Following the game LaVine said he did hear a pop upon landing, but should be good to go next game. “I think it was just some fluid or something,” LaVine said. “I’ll be all right by Saturday. I’m walking around.”
