Eric Gordon withdraws from Team USA training camp for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
Gordon is the third player to withdraw this week after James Harden and Anthony Davis. The original training camp list of 20 is now down to 17 and the official 12-team roster will be announced on August 17.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) will remain sidelined on Sunday.
Dragic has missed the last three games, with tomorrow making it four straight. He's returning top-115/155 value (8/9-cat) leagues and if you need immediate help he's safe to cut loose in the latter format. The Heat are getting close to a full rotation again so it'll be interesting to see how Dragic's minutes get affected. Either way, he's just a late-round play this season.

Delon Wright (right adductor) is questionable to return to Saturday's game after suffering a right adductor injury.
Wright has been a light disappointment so far and quickly lost the starting point guard job, though he's still producing standard-league value even if he's not close to his tantalizing upside. Wright didn't pick up any stats before getting hurt today. We should see more Jalen Brunson, Seth Curry and JJ Barea for as long as he's out.

Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) is probable for Sunday's game.
Williams left Friday's game and was unable to return, but at least it appears to be a minor ailment. He should be good to fire up if you'd normally have him in lineups.

De'Andre Hunter (disloacted finger) was able to go through a workout on Friday but still wasn't able to practice.
The Hawks have no incentive to rush Hunter, who has started to look more comfortable after some early bumps in the road. He remains a weak redraft option but a promising dynasty player.

December 7, 2019, 2:32 pmIsaiah ThomasPG, Washington Wizards
Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) is listed as out against the Clippers on Sunday.
Being ruled out a full day in advance is not a great sign. Thomas was a difficult hold in standard leagues even before the injury so don't hesitate if there is a hot pickup available. Ish Smith started the last two for Thomas with 17.0 points, 2.0 triples, 8.0 assists and 0.5 steals so he hopes to keep rolling on Sunday but he did not do much with the starting job before he lost it to Thomas earlier this season so expectations are timid.
December 7, 2019, 2:31 pmWayne EllingtonSG, New York Knicks
Wayne Ellington (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out on Saturday.
Ellington isn't much of a fantasy presence with only 14.3 mpg on the season. It remains to be seen how the Knicks will deploy their cast of characters under Mike Miller's guidance, but unless some major cuts get made to the rotation you can just watch this action from afar until things settle down.

December 7, 2019, 2:24 pmJakarr SampsonSF, Indiana Pacers
JaKarr Sampson (sore lower back) is being listed as questionable to take on the Knicks on Saturday.
Sampson has missed the last nine contests with the back issue after starting seven of the Pacers' first nine games this season with Myles Turner missing time. There have been minimal updates regarding Sampson's recovery but he shouldn't have any fantasy value anyway as long as Turner and Domantas Sabonis are both healthy.
December 7, 2019, 2:18 pmTyson ChandlerC, Houston Rockets
Tyson Chandler (illness) is listed as questionable to face the Suns on Saturday.
Chandler is playing a minimal role for Houston with less than 10 minutes played in each of his last six appearances. His availability for this one will not have any fantasy implications.
December 7, 2019, 2:14 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon (sore right hand) is listed as questionable on Saturday against the Knicks.
Brogdon seemed to have injured his pinky in the final minutes of Friday's game against Detroit and although he said after the game that he should be fine for Saturday, the Pacers may err on the side of caution as they are facing one of the worst teams in the league. If Brogdon cannot go, Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell would likely divvy up all of his minutes.

December 7, 2019, 1:59 pmKevin LovePF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love (illness) is listed as probable to play against the Sixers on Saturday.
Love missed Friday's game which allowed Larry Nance to get the start but he failed to capitalize while playing a season-high 41 minutes. He should return to the bench with Love back but is still a top-100 standard league player in only 26.7 minutes per game this season. Love is putting up Love-type numbers as the best player on a bad team but with ESPN reporting that the Cavs are ready to listen to offers for him, his rest-of-season outlook is unclear although moving him may be tough because of his contract.
