• Joakim Noah
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    According to Marc Stein, the Grizzlies have been in “extensive discussions” with free agent center Joakim Noah.

    After Tom Thibodeau had no interest in bringing in Noah, it was probably a sign that he was done, but it appears he may get another opportunity to prove himself. Noah was working on his jumpshot over the summer in an effort to adapt to the modern game. Noah has a lot of tread on the tires and would not be fantasy-relevant on the Grizzlies, barring a Derrick Rose-esque comeback.

Fantasy News

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have assigned Kevon Looney to the G League on Tuesday as he works his way back from the neuropathic condition.

    This is the first news we've had on Looney in a couple weeks and while there is no timetable for a return, it's a great sign for the big man that he may be well enough to get some work in as he continues his rehab. The Warriors could really use Looney's defensive presence.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Toney Snell (hip flexor strain) was able to go through portions of Pistons practice on Tuesday.

    Snell's status for Wednesday's game against the Bulls wasn't updated, but that will likely come soon. Langston Galloway started the second half in place of Snell during Friday's game and may get the call again should Snell be unable to go.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (right shoulder soreness) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

    Though Davis has been dealing with the shoulder issue all season, he's been able to power through it to put up top-5 value in all leagues. Davis can do things on the basketball court that is simply hard to replicate. Keep him locked and loaded in your lineups until further notice.

  • Vince Carter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter (personal) returned to practice for the Hawks on Tuesday.

    The soon-to-be 43-year-old still has some life left in his legs on season number 22, but he can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues with a minimal role.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets.

    With Irving joining Caris LeVert on the sidelines again, Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to get all the run he can handle as the starting PG. Irving is putting up top-11/8 value in 8/9 category leagues to start the year. Irving's next chance to suit up is Friday vs. the Kings.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones (hip) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game with the Cavs.

    Jones just can't get and stay healthy this season with only four games under his belt. When Jones does return he has defensive upside with some shooting, but his role is limited in a crowded frontcourt. KZ Okpala (Achilles) is also ruled for Wednesday's game. Both can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (back spasms) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    With Lillard sitting this one out the offense will likely run through C.J. McCollum while Anfernee Simons should get the start at PG and all the minutes that he can handle. Both make for DFS value plays and Simons makes for an intriguing streaming option in a nice matchup. The newly signed Carmelo Anthony may see more usage than expected in his debut as well.

  • Josh Magette
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Josh Magette was present for the Magic's practice session on Tuesday.

    Magette has put up 18.4 points, 10.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.2 steals, and 3.0 threes per game in the G League this season and may have earned himself a spot on the Magic roster with his strong play to start the season. With that said, he likely won't see much time behind Markelle Fultz and D.J. Augustin to make a difference.

  • Caleb Swanigan
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Caleb Swanigan (ankle) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Swanigan is not in the rotation and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (sore right hamstring) will be re-evaluated in 10 days after Tuesday's tests revealed that his hamstring is not fully healed.

    A December return looks like the best case scenario for Payton who has appeared in just four games this season because of the hamstring issue. Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr. will continue to hold down the fort in the meantime.
