February 12, 2019, 10:50 pmE'Twaun Moore - G - New Orleans Pelicans
E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) returned to the starting lineup, playing 26 minutes and putting up 19 points, Tuesday vs. the Magic.
Moore added three 3-pointers and a block with his traditional efficiency from the floor. He would've played a bit more, but the Pelicans were blown out in this one. He appears to be ready to return to your lineups if he'd been there prior to his injury.
February 22, 2019, 7:15 pmKris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn (back contusion) will start on Friday vs. the Magic.
It's good to see Dunn is back in action but more importantly, we're hopeful he can get his game back on track as he's returned value outside the top-200 in 8/9-cat over the last few weeks.
February 22, 2019, 7:05 pmWayne Ellington - G - Detroit Pistons
Wayne Ellington will get the start on Friday vs. the Hawks.
This move will shift Luke Kennard to the bench. Ellington has a chance to lead all waiver guys in trey bombs and he’s a good add if you need a 3-point specialist, though he won’t do much else.

February 22, 2019, 7:01 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges will draw the start on Friday vs. the Wizards while Jeremy Lamb will come off the bench.
This came out of nowhere and we’ll have to see if it’s a short term move or one that sticks.

February 22, 2019, 6:58 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic’s minor injuries have piled up enough to force him to sit this one. Doncic is day-to-day and hopefully he’ll be fine after a day or two or rest. Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke will assume the point guard duties for as long as Doncic is out.

Jevon Carter (right knee soreness) and Tyler Dorsey (left knee soreness) will play on Friday vs. the Clippers.
There’s no real fantasy implication here; we’re just passing the news along.

February 22, 2019, 6:34 pmKyle Anderson - F - Memphis Grizzlies
Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will have another medical consultation next week and remains without a timetable to return.
This is at least the third consultation he’s gotten so far so it looks like there’s some uncertainty as to his injury or how to proceed with rehab. Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Capoclo and Chandler Parson will divvy up his minutes.

February 22, 2019, 6:29 pmLonzo Ball - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Lonzo Ball (left ankle sprain) was found to have a bone bruise on his injured ankle, a discovery that may push his recovery period beyond six weeks.
Ball has already exceeded his initial timetable for the ankle sprain and now we know why. It’s fine to keep him stashed on IR (as long as your expectations are tampered) but any H2H teams battling for a playoff spot while holding him in an active roster spot should probably move on.

Jaren Jackson Jr. (right quad soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.
Hopefully this injury won’t keep JJJ out for long. Ivan Rabb, Bruno Caboclo (both starting) and maybe even Joakim Noah look to benefit as long as Jackson’s out of the rotation.

February 22, 2019, 6:08 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns is in the league’s concussion protocol and will not play on Friday vs. the Knicks.
KAT was involved in a car accident on Thursday and the Wolves are putting him through the concussion protocol to make sure there are no lingering effects. It’s also notable that this is the first game he’ll miss in his whole career. Look for Dario Saric and Taj Gibson to have good games since Gorgui Dieng (personal) is also out. Both are DFS options.

LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Raptors.
Make sure L.A. is in your lineups.
