Coach Nate McMillan said Domantas Sabonis (left ankle sprain) will not travel with the team on Thursday to play the Bucks.
Sabonis has yet to return to practice, and until then he will continue to miss games with the anke sprain. T.J Leaf and Kyle O'Quinn will continue to take the extra minutes left behind in Sabonis' absence.

Justise Winslow (back) remains out for Monday's matchup with the Grizzlies
Winslow is still getting ruled out a day in advance, and still carries enough shooting woes to make him a borderline player in 12-team leagues when he is healthy. With that in mind and this injury situation it is best to let someone else have a shot at holding Winslow.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) has been ruled out for Monday's tilt with the Grizzlies.
Make that seven straight missed games for Dragic, and it is not clear when he will finally return to the squad. Unless you have him in an IL spot it is time to move on in most cases. He was worthy of 12-team rosters in standard leagues, but the ceiling was low, and you can find players with higher upsides on the wire.

Jabari Parker did not blow away the Lakers on Sunday, but he was solid enough with 12 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
Parker's ability to do a little bit of everything efficiently is making him into a mid to late-round player in standard leagues. It'll be interesting to see how things develop when John Collins comes back into the fold, but Kevin Huerter's left shoulder contusion at the end of this game should only help stabilize Parker's place in the rotation.
December 15, 2019, 9:28 pmWilson ChandlerF, Brooklyn Nets
Wilson Chandler put up two points with seven boards in 19 minutes in his first game back from a 25-game suspension on Sunday.
Chandler shot 1-of-1 from the field and added one steal and one block to the box score. The Nets waived Iman Shumpert to clear room for Chandler's return. If this game is any indicator of the minutes he will receive, he could put up late-round value with his versatile skill set.
December 15, 2019, 9:23 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie led the charge for the Nets with 24 points and six dimes in a team-high 30 minutes of action on Sunday.
Dinwiddie has been phenomenal since Kyrie Irving went down and has asserted himself in the conversation to be an Eastern Conference All-Star. He shot 9-of-21 from the field and knocked down two triples. There is a great sell-high opportunity for Dinwiddie as you might be able to get a top-50 asset for him.
December 15, 2019, 9:18 pmDeAndre JordanC, Brooklyn Nets
DeAndre Jordan put up 13 points and 11 rebounds in a 109-89 blowout win over the Sixers on Sunday.
Jordan shot 6-of-9 from the field and added two assists and one steal to the box score. Jarrett Allen got outshined by Jordan in this one as he put up just eight points and eight rebounds on 3-of-9 shooting. Allen is a better option, but Jordan still holds late-round rebounding and field goal percentage appeal.
December 15, 2019, 9:17 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon had a solid showing on Sunday as he went for 11 points (4-of-11 FG), seven assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and one turnover versus the Hornets.
Brogdon only received 25 minutes as the Pacers' bench thrived in this game. Brogdon remains the lead guard in Indiana, but the improved bench play could be cutting into his minutes to a small degree. TJ Warren on the other hand only received 26 minutes and struggled to reach six points (2-of-8 FG), four rebounds and two assists. Warren's questionable ability to fill out the box score beyond points is weighing down his fantasy appeal, especially on lousy shooting nights like this one.
December 15, 2019, 9:14 pmAl HorfordPF, Philadelphia Sixers
Al Horford started at center since Joel Embiid (illness) was out and put up 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Nets on Sunday.
Horford shot 5-of-15 from the field and missed all six of his attempts from beyond the arc. He added one steal and three blocks to the stat sheet. Horford has been the second-best asset on the Sixers, but has led the charge with top-30 value over the past two weeks.
December 15, 2019, 9:10 pmMyles TurnerC, Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner showed signs of life on Sunday vs. the Hornets as he went for 14 points, ten rebounds, two 3-pointers and five blocks.
You have to go all the way back to November 16 to find the last date Turner grabbed this many rebounds. For once this season Turner actually outperformed his front court competition, as Domantas Sabonis only managed 12 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, although Sabonis still saw eight more minutes of playing time (34 vs 26 minutes). Take this as a sign of progress for Turner, but this is going to be a long process to see Turner return to early-round value.
December 15, 2019, 9:09 pmBen SimmonsPG, Philadelphia Sixers
Ben Simmons dropped 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting in 29 minutes of action in a 109-89 loss to the Nets on Sunday.
Simmons added five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal to the box score. Simmons and Mike Scott were the only players to shoot above 50-percent from the field. He is consistently a top-50 option this season and his defensive prowess is helping his value tremendously.
