November 7, 2018, 8:42 pmDerrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat
Derrick Jones Jr. suffered a bruised right knee and will not return to the Heat's game vs. the Spurs on Wednesday.
He was a low-end option in very deep leagues so this does not affect his value that much. The Heat have several options at their disposal to fill his minutes.

December 11, 2018, 8:24 pmJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
The Suns are starting De'Anthony Melton, Mikal Bridges, Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren and DeAndre Ayton on Tuesday against the Spurs.
Jackson replaces Ariza, who has been the center of NBA trade rumors in recent days. Jackson has been on fire lately, though not worthy of standard league consideration just yet. The youth movement is in full force in Phoenix.

December 11, 2018, 7:20 pmRobert Covington - F - Minnesota Timberwolves
Robert Covington (knee) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.
Covington played 26 minutes on Monday night so we're expecting to see him out there tomorrow. If he does need to miss time we'll likely see Derrick Rose starting and Josh Okogie picking up mid-twenties minutes off the bench.

December 11, 2018, 7:07 pmJevon Carter - G - Memphis Grizzlies
Jevon Carter (right knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday night when the Grizzlies take on the Blazers.
Carter has yet to make his NBA debut, though that's largely been because of him spending time in the G-League. He's only an option in deep dynasty leagues.

December 11, 2018, 7:04 pmMarquese Chriss - F - Houston Rockets
Marquese Chriss (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out on Tuesday.
Chriss is averaging 5.9 mpg in nine contests this season and currently sits fourth on the center depth chart, so he's well off the fantasy radar.
December 11, 2018, 7:02 pmDavis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs will be without Davis Bertans on Tuesday as he tends to a personal matter.
This will be the second straight game out of the lineup for Bertans. Dante Cunningham is back so the Spurs won't be shorthanded at the four spot. There's minimal fantasy implications here.

December 11, 2018, 7:00 pmDante Cunningham - F - San Antonio Spurs
Dante Cunningham (abdominal soreness) will play on Tuesday.
Cunningham missed one game with the ailment. He figures to slide back into the starting power forward spot and send Derrick White back to the bench, but the Spurs could stay small against the wing-heavy Suns. Either way, Cunningham and White are only of interested in deep leagues.

December 11, 2018, 6:31 pmBrandon Knight - G - Houston Rockets
Brandon Knight is likely to make his Rockets debut next week.
It's been over a year on the sidelines for Knight, who is on his way back from an offseason knee procedure. He'll be tasked with giving the Rockets some extra scoring off the bench, though the team probably can't lean on him right away even with the state of their depth. He's only a deep-league option but might have some wider appeal if Chris Paul or James Harden got hurt.

December 11, 2018, 6:29 pmDennis Smith Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks
Dennis Smith Jr. (right wrist sprain) has been ruled out for Wednesday.
Smith has missed a week now with his wrist injury and hasn't returned to practice, so he's highly questionable to play later this week. Jalen Brunson has been playing well over the past few games and should continue to start for as long as Smith is out. He hasn't been good enough to warrant a firm hold recommendation in 12-team leagues, but he's certainly easier to wait on in 8-cat formats.
December 11, 2018, 6:20 pmEric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets
Eric Gordon will replace James Ennis in the starting lineup on Tuesday night.
Gordon had great success as a starter last season, but we haven't seen much of him starting alongside both Chris Paul and James Harden. His fantasy value shouldn't change much but it's possible that more time beside those playmakers helps his game, or for those stints to result in fewer touches and shots. The Rockets will be light on bench scoring tonight so we'll see how shots get redistributed between Ennis, Gary Clark and Gerald Green.

December 11, 2018, 6:19 pmJosh Richardson - F - Miami Heat
Josh Richardson is no longer on the injury report and will play on Wednesday night.
Richardson returned from a shoulder injury on Monday and will be right back to early-middle round value in no time. He's pretty much the only bankable fantasy player in Miami these days, and his return will eat into the work and opportunity for the fringe-relevant players on the roster — basically everybody else.
