• Dwight Powell
    F/C, Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left knee effusion) is listed as 'Out' against the Celtics on Saturday.

    This would be Powell's third straight game on the sidelines. Harrison Barnes, coming off his best game of the season on Wednesday with five triples and 28 points, will again be tasked with playing more power forward minutes with Maxi Kleber getting a couple of extra minutes as well.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid had a great night on Tuesday that ended with the game-winning dunk, which was part of a line that also included 27 points (10-for-20 FGs, 4-for-5 FTs), 16 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Embiid is doing what was expected of him to this point. He's putting up top-15 value on a per-game basis, but he's missed three games. Enjoy the roller coaster.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Huerter left to go to the locker room and was seen "holding his left shoulder very gingerly" on Tuesday night after a foul from Nikola Jokic.

    Continue to check for updates but this would be a big loss for the Hawks as Huerter was perfect from the field (4-of-4) so far on Tuesday. Cam Reddish, DeAndre' Bembry and Tyrone Wallace will see additional minutes if Huerter is forced to miss time.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine stayed in the game Tuesday despite rolling his ankle on a made basket.

    LaVine's ankle injury is worth monitoring but he has been able to stay in the game for now. Continue to monitor this situation as more news will certainly come out post-game.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle played just 13 minutes but still snagged two steals and three blocks, though he added only two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on Tuesday vs. the Cavs.

    The legend continues for Thybulle. He's just not getting enough minutes or stats outside of steals and blocks to be worth rostering right now. There aren't many better defensive-stat streamers, though.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (shoulder) had an efficient night from the floor as he returned from a two-game absence, putting up 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting, five rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes vs. the Cavs on Tuesday.

    It's good to see a strong first game back for Simmons. He got off to a slow start this season outside of some ridiculous steal numbers, but there's plenty of reason to think he'll be fine. Furkan Korkmaz started this game with Al Horford resting, but the extra minutes didn't do much for his line tonight. Korkmaz can get you threes, but that's about it right now.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris went 0-for-11 from deep as he provided just eight points, five rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes on Tuesday as the Sixers got passed the Cavs 98-97.

    Harris hasn't hit a 3-pointer in four games now, though that seems like a fluke. Otherwise, he's doing about what he always does: put up deceptively valuable numbers across the board, landing him as a 4th-to-5th round player.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis double-doubled on Tuesday, ending the ball game with 18 points and 16 rebounds in only 29 minutes of action.

    Sabonis pitched in with two assists and one block while he turned the ball over two times in the contest. His value stems from points and rebounds while he doesn't hurt in either of the percentages. He will continue to be a focal point of the offense, especially while Myles Turner remains out with a sprained right ankle.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points on 50 percent shooting while he added six rebounds, five assists, three turnovers and two three-pointers on Tuesday.

    Brogdon also hit both of his free throw attempts on Tuesday which helped his overall line. He only saw 25 minutes of action due to the blowout factor, eight minutes less than his season average so far this year (33.7). Brogdon and the Pacers will look to continue their momentum on Friday as they take on the Rockets.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson broke out his new skill and hit a pair of treys to go with his 17-point, 12-board double-double on Tuesday.

    Thompson was 7-of-13 from the floor, hit 1-of-2 free throws and threw in a steal in 33 minutes. Had fantasy players drafted Tristan Thompson in the fourth round, they'd still be happy with his season to this point. At the moment, Thompson ranks 31st in 9-cat. It's hard to imagine you can get too much for him given his history, so it may be best to keep him and enjoy the ride.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren continued to score the ball on Tuesday as he finished the game with 23 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, one turnover and one trifecta on a mega-efficient 10-of-14 shooting while he nailed both of his free throws.

    Warren did all of his damage in a team-high 31 minutes. He has been a scoring machine lately and will continue to get plenty of opportunity with the injuries the Pacers have suffered. He is currently on pace to finish with top 80/65 value in 8/9 category leagues.
