• Deandre Ayton - C - Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton double-doubled on Monday with 19 points and 12 rebounds while adding two assists and three blocks.

    Ayton came up with big rebounds and crucial buckets late in the game to help keep the Bucks at bay. He's had an awesome rookie season offensively but has flown under the radar considering how great his class has been.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley (left thigh soreness) will not play on Monday against the Thunder.

    Conley was able to go through shootaround this morning but the Grizzlies might start to exercise extreme caution here after he missed a game for "general soreness" last week. Delon Wright should be in all lineups going forward.

  • Joakim Noah - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (right knee soreness) has been ruled out on Monday.

    Noah was previously doubtful and left his last game with an injury, so hopefully you weren't unprepared for this development. Ivan Rabb will have the chance to back up Jonas Valanciunas tonight. We could have seen the last of Noah this year.

  • Jawun Evans - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jawun Evans has been claimed off waivers by the Thunder.

    Evans, on a two-way contract, was waived by the Suns. Yesterday it was reported that the Rockets would be putting in a claim but with OKC higher in the pecking order, they'll get Evans. He'll help give the Thunder some extra depth in the backcourt and slot in behind Raymond Felton, though there's not going to be much playing time available.

  • Matthew Dellavedova - G - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) remains out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Delly has been out for about two weeks now and is not going to factor into fantasy owners' decisions moving forward.

  • Trevor Ariza - F - Washington Wizards

    Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Lakers.

    The Wizards haven't shut Ariza down just yet but that looks to be where things are heading. Troy Brown will continue to start in his place and is worth a look in deep leagues, while Ariza is fairly safe to drop in most formats.

  • Tony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Tony Parker (personal) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Parker has been watching a lot of games from the sidelines lately between his personal absence and ample rest days. His return figures to impact Malik Monk and Devonte' Graham.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion) is probable to play on Tuesday.

    MKG has missed the last three games while he was in the concussion protocol but is likely to return tomorrow. He'll need to battle for playing time with Miles Bridges and Frank Kaminsky at the four spot. No need to look his way for fantasy.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Batum missed Charlotte's pair of games on the weekend, so hopefully that rest served him well. He'll go back to being a low-end play when he returns, though Miles Bridges' improved play could make a dent in Batum's playing time. Dwayne Bacon is the most likely to lose minutes when the Hornets are at full strength.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Zeller will miss his eighth straight game tomorrow and can be dropped with fantasy owners needing immediate production at this point in the year. Frank Kaminsky was the pickup of choice last week but it's been Willy Hernangomez who's putting up numbers over the last couple of games. Bismack Biyombo has been playing limited minutes as a starter but it's the other two who are better plays — Hernangomez offers more upside while Kaminsky is the target if you need threes.
