• Draymond Green
    PF/C, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green neared a triple-double in Tuesday's Game 5 victory with 17 points, 19 rebounds and seven assists.

    Green went 5-of-11 from the field with a pair of triples but didn't add any defensive stats. Perhaps the fact that he picked up five fouls forced him to be a little less aggressive on that end than usual. Whatever the case, he's in line for a massive challenge with Anthony Davis, Niko Mirotic and the rest of the Pels rolling into town on Saturday.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson (right heel soreness) is doubtful to participate in Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    It sounds like another missed game for Anderson, which means open minutes for Grayson Allen, Jae Crowder and Bruno Caboclo potentially. If you want to swing for a home run Caboclo is worth a streaming pickup as he can accumulate numbers rapidly when he gets on the floor.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks popped up on the injury report as questionable for Saturday with right shoulder soreness.

    It would be disappointing to see Brooks miss time as he is getting plenty of touches with Ja Morant out of the lineup. Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton are going to get plenty of run right now, and are worth a pickup in most standard leagues.

  • Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    According to head coach Brad Stevens, Gordon Hayward (fractured left hand) is likely to return to practice on Sunday.

    Stevens had just said that Hayward should be able to return before Christmas, but if he is practicing already then he could be back a week or two before the holidays potentially. It will be interesting to see how the touches shake out when the Celtics have a fully healthy roster.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (lower back strain) is still questionable heading into tonight's showdown with the Wizards.

    If Winslow were to miss this one a lot of minutes would trickle down to Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson. Goran Dragić remains out so Jimmy Butler will be getting plenty of play making opportunities if Winslow joins him on the sidelines.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris will miss Friday's matchup vs. the Pacers due to a neck strain.

    Morris has not been a major contributor this season, but his absence will open up more opportunities for Christian Wood to have one of his always impressive big stat lines.

  • Dion Waiters
    SG, Miami Heat

    Dion Waiters is dealing with an illness that will keep him out of action when the Heat face the Wizards.

    Waiters will join Goran Dragić on the sidelines, leaving plenty of room for Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson to get more run against the Wizards. Waiters will keep on waiting for his first appearance on the floor this year.

  • Damyean Dotson
    SG, New York Knicks

    Damyean Dotson (dislocated left pinky) should be good to go for the Knicks' matchup with the Pacers on Saturday.

    Dotson is no longer on the Knicks' injury report so don't hesitate to have him in your lineup. He is a scoring spark plug at times, and who knows what is about to happen with the Knicks after David Fizdale's firing.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley is questionable for Saturday's tilt with the Grizzlies as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

    Conley is nearing a return which will likely end whatever boost in production we have been witnessing from Joe Ingles.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (personal) will remain out on Saturday when the Pelicans face the Mavs.

    With Favors out Jaxson Hayes will have a bigger role to play for the Pelicans, and Kenrich Williams will have some potential to be productive as well.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Shams Chararnia of the Athletic is reporting that the Knicks have promoted assistant coach Mike Miller to the interim head coach position, where he will replace the fired David Fizdale.

    Best of luck to Miller, as turning things around in New York will be no easy task. The Knicks set the bar awfully low thus far, so at least he has that going for him. As for fantasy, the Knicks remain a mess. Mitchell Robinson is a buy-low candidate, Marcus Morris is a sell-high candidate, Julius Randle is an inefficiency monster with plenty of counting stats, and RJ Barrett puts up numbers but needs to round out his free-throw shooting and turnover numbers. This team has a lot to work out so don't bank your season on any of these guys.
