• E'Twaun Moore
    G, New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore put up a team-high 30 points on Monday night, going 13-of-18 from the field while adding three assists, three triples and a steal.

    It was one of those nights for Moore, and it felt like he hit just about every cheeky mid-range floater he attempted tonight. He's a quiet back-end player who should have no troubles producing late-round numbers, so while he lacks sizzle on most nights he should definitely be owned in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. This was Moore's third career 30-point game.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Favors is coming off two strong games but is unable to play. Jaxson Hayes will fill in for the big man. He's a solid play in daily leagues considering that Jahlil Okafor is also out.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) is expected to play during Monday's game.

    Holiday has missed seven games in a row but it looks like he is on track to face the Grizzlies. He could eat into some of Lonzo Ball's playing time. In addition to the solid contributions in points and assists, Holiday has averaged 1.7 steals per contest this season.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) is being downgraded to doubtful for Monday's matchup with the Thunder.

    This would indicate that Rivers will miss this one. Ben McLemore is likely to see a few extra minutes if RIvers gets ruled out.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (jammed right big toe) is considered questionable to return for Monday's game against the Wizards after exiting in the second quarter.

    Morris isn't out of the woods just yet, but this is a positive development as it isn't related to the left foot sprain that kept him out of the lineup for seven games before returning on Saturday. Keep tabs on the situation as more information rolls in. Christian Wood would be the biggest beneficiary if Morris were to miss time.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler is being ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup with the Kings due to right hip soreness.

    With Butler out, there will be a ton of usage and minutes to go around in the Heat rotation. One of Goran Dragic or Derrick Jones Jr. should enter the starting lineup, while the minutes will be dispersed amongst a handful of players.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Maurice Harkless (sore lower back) practiced on Monday and is expected to return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    Harkless will make for a potential streaming option on a one-game slate if he is ultimately cleared to play. Paul George (hamstring) is also traveling with the team, and the team is hopeful that he can return during the upcoming road trip.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Ky Bowman is being listed as out for Monday's game against the Blazers.

    Bowman's two-way contract is almost up, and with the Warriors getting a few players back, they aren't going to use up his last remaining days. He may ultimately get signed for the rest of the season as Damion Lee did, but he isn't to be under fantasy consideration until that happens.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Coach Dwane Casey said on Monday that Reggie Jackson (lower back stress fracture) has been cleared to return to action and could return to the lineup sometime this week.

    Jackson has appeared in just two games this season as he dealt with the back injury, but could seemingly return as early as Wednesday's game against the Kings. Jackson will likely be eased back into the lineup and has been a fringe standard league guy the past few seasons, so expectations should be tempered, but he is someone to keep an eye on with what could become a fantasy-friendly situation.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (undisclosed) left and headed to the locker room during the second quarter of Monday's game against the Wizards.

    It is unclear what is ailing Morris at this time, but he did return from a seven-game absence over the weekend while nursing a foot injury. If this turns out to be something that will keep Morris out of the lineup, Christain Wood, Thon Maker and Sekou Doumbouya will benefit from extra minutes. Wood has the highest upside of the group when he sees the run.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris (lower back soreness) and Garrett Temple (knee) are both listed as starters for Monday's matchup with the Sixers.

    The Nets will be without Kyrie Irving (hamstring) for this one, so there will be a ton of usage to go around behind Spencer Dinwiddie. Play both as you normally would.
