• E'Twaun Moore - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) will be in the lineup on Saturday.

    Moore missed the previous two games but was expected to return for this game as of yesterday. The Pelicans now have their full complement of players healthy, and although it's being reported that there's no restriction on Moore tonight we'd bet on him playing less than usual. He's fine for deep-league use.

Fantasy News

  • Aaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon (lower back soreness) is questionable for Monday's game.

    Gordon was unable to play on Saturday because of his back pain, which he equated to a similar issue he dealt with in November that forced him to miss a game. Hopefully he'll be able to return relatively quickly this time as well. Jonathan Isaac moved down to power forward while Jonathon Simmons moved into the starting lineup on Saturday, and if Gordon sits that should be the same configuration we see this time around.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

    Embiid looked a little slow in the first half of Saturday's game, but turned things on in the second half. He's going to be on the injury report quite a bit going forward, so we'll just have to wait for more news to come out.

  • Jimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler (sore right wrist) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets.

    Butler had a rough shooting game on Saturday, so he could have been playing on a bad foot in that game. The Sixers play late on Monday, but if you have to set a weekly lineup, or your lineup locks at the start of the first game, you'll have to get up early and may be forced into a tough decision.

  • Lonzo Ball - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lonzo Ball will miss three-to-four weeks with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain.

    This is quite unfortunate for Ball owners, but was somewhat expected. Rajon Rondo (finger) is worth an add if you can hold him until he comes back. Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma should see a big uptick in usage and time with the ball, but it could get ugly for the Lakers. Josh Hart is worth an add with the added touches he will see.

  • Jeff Teague - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (illness) is active against the Suns on Sunday.

    We got a quick scare with the questionable tag just an hour-and-a-half before tip-off, but Teague should be just fine. Make sure he's in your lineups.

  • Danilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers

    Danilo Gallinari (back spasms) did not travel with the team and coach Doc Rivers said there is a solid chance he misses all four games of the upcoming road trip.

    Gallo left after only eight minutes on Friday, and seems to be in for a lengthy absence – as he does. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played 42 minutes on Friday and the Clippers will likely go with a lot of small ball lineups without Gallo. Tyrone Wallace logged 18 minutes on Friday and should see an increased workload without Gallo.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Thompson will now miss his third straight game with his foot soreness. He's also been ruled out a day in advance, which is never a good sign. It looks like Ante Zizic will be in for another high minute game, while Channing Frye should chip in a few minutes off the bench.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks

    Dennis Smith Jr. will return to the team for Tuesday's game against the Clippers, according to coach Rick Carlisle.

    This means that Smith is out for Monday's game, but it's good to see Smith and the Mavs are on better terms. With constant trade rumors swirling, it now appears DSJ will remain a Maverick. Even when healthy, he wasn't a great fantasy option in standard leagues.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan (left ankle soreness) is available for Sunday's game.

    This is no surprise as DeRozan was fully expected to play in this game. Make sure he's in your lineups.

  • Lou Williams - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams (sore right hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

    With both Lou Will and Danilo Gallinari (back) out, Tobias Harris should be in for a lot of work. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Tyrone Wallace should get extra run as well.
