  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris (right adductor strain) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    If Harris can't go, Michael Porter Jr. and Malik Beasley would continue to benefit from the additional minutes. Keep a close eye on Harris' status as we get closer to tip-off.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel (sore left ankle) will play in Wednesday's game against the Magic after being a late-scratch in Monday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Noel's surprise inactive designation came a few minutes after game time on Monday to the chagrin of many fantasy owners. Noel may have a significant workload in front of him as Steven Adams remains a game-time decision for this one.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (lower back strain) will play and come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

    Bruno Fernando is getting the nod in the starting lineup for this one, with Damian Jones and Alex Len splitting time off the bench. None of the trio is a recommended play, though Len typically produces the most value in limited playing time.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (sore right hip) and Goran Dragic (right knee bruise) are ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Both should return to their typical roles and are in solid positions to produce against an underwhelming Wizards defense. Fire them up as you usually do.

  • Duncan Robinson
    F, Miami Heat

    Duncan Robinson (ankle sprain), who was listed as questionable coming into the day, will play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Robinson should resume his typical role as the starting SF in a matchup that suits his style of play. Robinson's game has dropped slightly over the past month, but he still holds top-75/105 value in 9/8 cat leagues on the year. Play him as you usually would.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are inserting Jeff Teague and Bruno Fernando into the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Teague is taking over for the injured Trae Young (thigh), while the team has opted to shift John Collins to PF and start Fernando in this one. Fernando should ultimately split time with Damian Jones with Collins seeing time at C as well.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon will start at C for the Kings in place on Marvin Bagley III on Wednesday.

    Dedmon gets the call with the Bagley sitting out after returning to the court on Monday. Assuming Andre Drummond (questionable) plays, the Kings desperately need Dedmon's size down low. This shouldn't be more than a one-game abberration.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (right thigh contusion) will not play in against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Young went off for 42 points, 15 assists and six rebounds on Monday night, so this news comes as a bummer for fantasy owners. Expect newcomer Jeff Teague to get the start at PG while he and Kevin Huerter handle the majority of the ball-handling and playmaking responsibilities in this one.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (left knee soreness is being lusted as available to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Walker returned to the lineup for Monday's blowing win against the Lakers and looks good to go moving forward. The PG has provided top-30 value on the year in 9/8 cat leagues, and that will continue as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (left oblique strain) is being listed as available to play for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers.

    This will be Smith's first game in nearly a month as he hasn't suited up since December 23rd. In addition to likely being eased back into the lineup, he was looking like the team's third-string PG behind Frank Ntilikina and Elfrid Payton before going down. Smith is a name to keep an eye on in case he gets traded to a more favorable situation, but he doesn't offer much fantasy value in his current role.
