• Dennis Smith Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) will not play on Wednesday.

    Smith was able to play through his wrist issue (plus a dental procedure) over the last week or so but will sit out tonight. This means extra work for J.J. Barea, Devin Harris and Jalen Brunson. Smith had been holding late-round value over his last handful of games, so despite the name value he shouldn't be overly difficult for owners to replace in the short-term.

  • Chandler Parsons - F - Memphis Grizzlies

    Chandler Parsons (knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    One wonders if Parsons NBA career is already over due to his knee issues. Even if he somehow gets healthy this season he'll play limited minutes and will likely just go down again. It's sad to see a player with so much promise get taken out by bad knees.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's contest vs. the Blazers.

    Conley participated in shootaround which is why we have him as probable. However, the veteran said he wants to avoid pushing to a 100 percent sprint so their is definite risk of re-injury here. Shelvin Mack would be a nice add if the 31-year-old ever went down with a long-term injury.

  • Blake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (rest) will play on Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

    Griffin sat out for a rest day on Monday, but will return to the starting lineup on Wednesday. The big man is top-50 this season thanks to an increase in his field goal percentage. He continues to evolve as a shooter and has improved his three's per game each season.

  • Glenn Robinson III - G/F - Detroit Pistons

    Glenn Robinson III (ankle) will be out for two weeks.

    The MRI didn't reveal anything serious, but the 24-year-old will still miss at least two weeks regardless. Robinson had opportunity to take one of the backcourt spots, but has failed to produce and now Luke Kennard may have bumped him out of the starting lineup for good

  • Henry Ellenson - F - Detroit Pistons

    Henry Ellison (ankle) will miss two weeks

    Ellison hardly plays when he is healthy and therefore is inconsequential to fantasy owners.

  • Reggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday against the Hornets.

    Bullock has been upgraded to questionable, but he has only played in less than half of the games when listed as so. After a breakout season in 2017-2018, Bullock has struggled to find his form and has been nicked up often. If he can get healthy then a stretch run of nice production is possible.

  • Pat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton (knee) will play in Wednesday's contest vs. the Pacers.

    Connaughton sat out against the Cavs on Monday with the ailment. He has been a a solid real life contributor off the Bucks bench, but in fantasy land top-200 production is only for deep leagues.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (neck) will play on Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

    Antetokounmpo missed the Bucks previous game with the ailment. Ersan Ilyasova will head back to the bench and DJ Wilson will lose minutes as well. If you drafted the Greek Freak then enjoy the top-5 production.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving said that the pain in his shoulder is manageable and that he sat the other night for rest purposes.

    This was never considered to be a serious issue so it’s good to see Kyrie back after missing only one game. With Gordon Hayward and Al Horford also sidelined he should have plenty of oppotuinities to score and owners should continue to enjoy top-20 value in his production.

  • Damian Lillard - G - Trail Blazers

    Speaking to reporters after the game, Damian Lillard acknowledged that he tweaked his left shoulder against the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Lillard stayed in the game and the shoulder did not seem to have any ill effects on his performance. He finished with 34 points on 12-of-25 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three and 6-of-7 from the free throw line. He said he feels fine but with the Blazers playing on a back-to-back tonight you should keep an eye on his status.
