Gordon Hayward is not on the injury report for Monday's game.
Hayward had to sit out on Saturday because of left ankle soreness but should be good to go for this week. It's also possible that last night's absence was a result of Boston wrapping up a B2B even though Hayward no longer has a minutes restriction. Get him back into your lineups next week.

Joel Embiid struggled with his shot in Wednesday's win, finishing with 23 points (7-of-19 shooting) to go with 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks a triple and three turnovers.
The Sixers were off all night against an inferior Knicks' team and a good deal of it started with Embiid's inefficiency. He put some shots together towards then end including a last-minute 3-pointer. Look for him to shoot better from the floor in his next one.
November 20, 2019, 9:42 pmLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge had his second double-double of the season on Wednesday against the Wizards, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three swats.
Aldridge continues to chug along providing top-40 value. This was his second double-double in three games, and he is averaging just shy of two blocks a game. He looks like someone you can count on to finish the season around this mark.
November 20, 2019, 9:40 pmBen SimmonsPG, Philadelphia Sixers
Ben Simmons did it all on Wednesday, finishing his night with 18 points (7-of-9 shooting), 13 assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and his first career 3-pointer.
Long time fantasy owners of Simmons will double-take tonight after finally seeing a number in the 3-point column. He has been shooting lights-out from the floor over his last few ball-games, but unfortunately continues to keep missing his free throws. Until he stops hurting you in that column, and assuming he continues to hit one triple every four years, he will not be able to crack the fantasy threshold that he has been drafted at.
November 20, 2019, 9:35 pmJakob PoeltlC, San Antonio Spurs
Jakob Poeltl did a little bit of everything in his first start of the season, ending with a line of 11 points, five boards, two assists, a steal and three blocks on Wednesday night.
It was a new starting five for the Spurs tonight, and Poeltl made his case to stay there. While he is only worth a flier in deeper leagues right now, it is worth monitoring the starting situation in San Antonio. Consistent nights like this, and he'll creep up in relevance.
November 20, 2019, 9:32 pmMarcus SmartPG, Boston Celtics
Marcus Smart (ankle) will be available against the Clippers on Wednesday night.
Smart avoids serious injury to his ankle and is also expected to play without a minutes limit. Roll him out there as you usually would.

Patty Mills received his first start of the season on Wednesday night, putting up 16 points, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Mills made the most of his first start of the season and ended with a respectable stat line. Dejounte Murray only logged 19 minutes coming off the bench but still managed 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, five boards, two assists and three steals. Murray is still the one you want to roster, but this backcourt is getting murky.
November 20, 2019, 8:46 pmAaron GordonPF, Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon has suffered a right ankle sprain and will not reurn to Wednesday's game against the Raptors.
In a brutal turn of events the Magic are now down Gordon and Nikola Vucevic (right ankle sprain) to the same injury in the same game. With Gordon out of commission Jonathan Issac will bare a heavy load while Khem Birch, Mo Bamba and Al-Farouq Aminu will all see extended run.

Nikola Vucevic has been ruled out for the remainder of the Wednesday's game with a right ankle sprain.
He couldn't walk off on his own power and will likely be re-evaluated in the coming days. Khem Birch and Mo Bamba will hold down the center minutes in his absence.

Nikola Vucevic had to be helped to the locker room after hurting his foot during Wednesday's game.
It doesn't sound good and we will be on standby for further updates.

Kawhi Leonard will play against the Celtics on Wednesday according to Dan Woike of the LA Times.
It was reported that he was expected to return tonight and now we have our confirmation. We now get to watch the long-awaited debut of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George together. Throw him back into your lineups.
