• - 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.

  • Tim Hardaway Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. (left tibia stress reaction) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.

    It's not surprising, as the same injury cost Hardaway a full month last season and the Mavs have nothing to play for. He's safe to drop in all redraft formats while the Mavs will likely turn to a committee to pick up his minutes on the wing. Dorian Finney-Smith and Courtney Lee are the top options, and we might see Ryan Broekhoff get more regular minutes as well. DFS is the best add of the bunch if you're looking for low-end production.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies are listing Mike Conley as doubtful for Friday's matchup with the Magic due to "general soreness."

    Conley's been excellent this season and really hasn't generated much buzz as a shutdown candidate, largely because he hasn't dealt with many nagging injuries. We're expecting him to return to the lineup after this likely night off so he's not a drop. Delon Wright is going to be a popular play tomorrow, and with good reason. With Avery Bradley (shin) already out for at least a week, Justin Holiday, Bruno Caboclo, Jevon Carter and Tyler Dorsey should be in line for a lot of minutes tomorrow.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum has been replaced in the starting lineup on Thursday night, with Dwayne Bacon drawing the start against the Wolves.

    Batum is expected to be available off the bench, though he could be dealing with an undisclosed injury. He has started every game he's played in this year and it could be James Borrego looking for a spark with Charlotte trying to scrap their way into the playoffs.

  • Allen Crabbe - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Allen Crabbe had fluid drained from his sore right knee.

    Crabbe will miss three straight games having already been ruled out for Friday, and odds are he misses more time than that. There's not much fantasy appeal here as Crabbe can only pop as a 3-point specialist in a deep Brooklyn rotation.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (head) is not on the injury report and is expected to play in Friday's game against the Clippers.

    Love left Wednesday's game after bumping heads with Eric Bledsoe, logging six points on 1-of-10 from the field in 18 minutes. He didn't return but it looks as though he's avoided a concussion, which comes as a massive relief to fantasy owners. Keep him in your lineups.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart (right knee tendinitis) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

    Hart's been able to go through games despite being less than 100 percent, and it's possible that he does get shut down eventually. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock will pick up additional minutes if that happens.

  • Lance Stephenson - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lance Stephenson (left toe sprain) is questionable to play on Friday against the Nets.

    Stephenson has sat the last five and there's been almost no change in the fantasy landscape, unless you're going to count a sliver of Alex Caruso's playing time as coming at Stephenson's expense.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (left groin soreness) is being listed as probable to play on Friday against the Heat.

    Hill sat out on Wednesday, the second leg of a back-to-back. The team is bringing him along slowly after he missed about a month, and he won't be a fantasy option until his minutes restrictions are lifted — even with Malcolm Brogdon out.

  • Sterling Brown - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Sterling Brown (right wrist soreness) is probable to play on Friday.

    If he returns, it'll put and end to a 13-game absence. He might have some deep-league appeal with Malcolm Brogdon on the shelf but this isn't an add scenario unless you're in a 30-team league.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out for Friday against the Heat.

    Gasol isn't in the rotation in Milwaukee and his utility to the team comes more in the locker room than on the court.
