• DeMarcus Cousins
    C, Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins, still looking for work in free agency, has switched representation to Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports.

    Yesterday it was reported that there is "not a market" for Cousins, whose fading mobility stuck out like a sore thumb in his lone season with the Warriors. He returned from a torn Achilles to suffer a torn left quad, and while the effort was commendable and we saw glimpses of pre-injury Boogie teams don't seem all that interested in paying Cousins for his past work.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon is not being listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Dedmon has routinely been listed on the injury report with a knee issue, but has played in all 12 games for the Kings this season. Dedmon has seen his role and production diminish since Richaun Holmes was inserted into the starting lineups and can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett (sprained left thumb) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Barrett has had a solid season in the counting stats this year with 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 threes and 1.3 steals per game. Of course the caveat being that those numbers come with some of the worst percentages in the league and 2.7 turnovers per game. Barrett will have every opportunity to fix those issues this year and remains a must-own on a bad Knicks team.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (concussion protocol) is expected to miss Wednesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Winslow hasn't played since November 5th due to the injury, and there hasn't been much clarity on the situation. Head injuries are tricky and we are now on the two week mark with Winslow.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (illness) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Owners can feel comfortable getting Dragic, who is averaging 16.1 points, 5.1 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 threes so far this year, back in their lineups. With Justise Winslow still out, Dragic will continue to see extra minutes.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin (dislocated finger) is expected to play against the Raptors on Wednesday after practicing on Tuesday.

    Augustin has averaged 9.8 points, 4.4 assists, 0.8 threes and 0.5 steals this year as he has seen Markelle Fultz take his starting PG job. Augustin makes for an option in deeper-leagues, but his ceiling is too low for standard leagues at this time.

  • Jonathan Isaac
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac (sprained right ankle) practiced on Tuesday and will be a game time decision ahead of Wednesday's clash against the Raptors.

    Al-Farouq Aminu has performed admirably as a fill-in starter for Isaac the past two games, and would likely get that honor again should Isaac be ruled out. An Isaac return would make Aminu droppable for those that have streamed him this past weekend. Isaac has been a top-13 per game player to start the season with 12.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 treys, 1.3 steals and 2.8 blocks while shooting .49 percent from the field and .91 percent from the line.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Michael Carter-Williams (strained left hip) is expected to remain out when the Magic take on the raptors on Wednesday.

    MCW injured his hip after just six minutes on Sunday and it is unclear how long the injury will cost him. Carter-Williams will have the occasional nice game but isn't near the standard-league radar at this time.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony passed his physical this morning and he will be activated for tonight’s game against the Pelicans.

    Melo will wear No. 00 and he should get into some action tonight. The Blazers have been using Nassir Little, Mario Hezonja and Anthony Tolliver in the power forward position so far and the starting gis seems to be up for grabs.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Terry Stotts said that Carmelo Anthony arrived in New Orleans last night and he expects to meet with him this morning with an expectation that he could play against the Pelicans tonight.

    Melo has said all the right things so far while Damian Lillard and C.J McCollum, the team’s leaders, have endorsed his signing. It remains to be seen what he can bring to the table and it’s not a bad idea to actually take a flier on him in deep leagues as the Blazers have a need for a scoring forward.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said this morning that Kevin Huerter's total injury timetable will hopefully be 4-5 weeks, instead of the earlier prognosis that had him being re-evaluated in just a couple weeks.

    This Thursday marks the end of week 1 so Huerter should be dropped in all redraft leagues. The Hawks will continue to use Cam Reddish, Allen Crabbe and DeAndre' Bembry in his absence but none of them has proved to be a reliable fantasy contributor.
