• Dwyane Wade will be headed to a new team for the first time in his career and is ready for the new challenge headed his way.

    Wade will be playing for a new team this season and is still ready to prove to doubters that he can still play the game at an elite level. The new challenge that he faces will be meshing with ball-dominant teammates Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo this upcoming season. It’ll be interesting to see how this works but it will surely affect all of their fantasy values. Of the three Butler will have the most fantasy value but Wade could slip far enough on draft day that he becomes a steal. Look for Wade to be more valuable in real life than fantasy, however.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (left calf bruise) is listed as questionable for Monday's game.

    Dragic missed Friday's matchup with the Clippers. Tyler Herro played a whopping 40 minutes in that game and could be used a lot again depending on who is able to suit up against the Magic.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) will not play in Tuesday's game.

    Michael Porter Jr. has seen his value increase thanks to injuries to Murray and Paul Millsap. This will be Murray's 6th straight missed game and the Nuggets are not sure when he'll be ready to return.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game.

    This has really become a chronic issue. Tuesday will be the 11th straight game that Millsap has missed. Jerami Grant has been filling in admirably for him.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    A Rockets source said that "it would be surprising" if James Harden played on Monday due to a bruised left thigh.

    Harden was already listed as doubtful for the game against the Jazz. This is nothing too serious, but Austin Rivers got 34 minutes on Sunday and should be in line for a similar boost in court time.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cavs.

    Snell missed the last one and, to be brutally honest, we hope he misses this one too. His main function on the court is to steal minutes away from younger, already better players like Bruce Brown or Svi Myhailiuk. Ignore him. In perpetuity.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose (right knee sprain) is probable to play in Monday's game against the Cavs.

    Rose played in the last one, so this tag was expected. He's one of the more viable trade candidates in the league and is currently playing like a guy who wants to be in the playoffs. His value is at its peak right now and will surely drop if he's traded to a contender, so get whatever top-80 value you can get for him in a trade right now.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (left knee sprain) is surprisingly being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    We heard rumblings about Porter's availability on Sunday, but it got drowned out by the news of the day. Porter's sudden return makes him a guy to monitor in standard leagues. Jordan Clarkson is gone, Darius Garland is slumping, the Cavs figure to be sellers at the trade deadline and Porter himself had been putting up standard-league lines before the knee sprain. Keep an eye on him.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge will not play Monday against the Bulls due to a sprained right thumb.

    This is a new injury for Aldridge and may partly explain his poor performance from Sunday. Knowing coach Gregg Popovich, however, he's likely resting his veteran big man on the second night of a back-to-back. No need for Aldridge owners to worry just yet, as he's been cruising as a top-20 value in his age 24 season.

  • Josh Jackson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies have recalled Josh Jackson from their G League affiliate.

    The former 4th overall pick from 2017 was promoted shortly after Grayson Allen was ruled out indefinitely with a hip injury. Jackson has lit up the G League, with per-game averages of 20.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and a combined 2.9 defensive stats on 44% shooting. We know he can be this dynamic in the big league as well, but with the Grizzlies in the playoff chase, they won't (and shouldn't) completely turn to the youth deep in their bench just yet.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) will miss his 9th consecutive game on Monday against the Wolves.

    We haven't gotten much of an update on Holmes' condition since he came down with a shoulder sprain. We've received vague reports about his potential availability this week and that still seems like a possibility despite tonight's absence. In his stead, Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles will need to step up, but neither are in consideration in standard leagues.
