• Harrison Barnes - F - Dallas Mavericks

    Harrison Barnes finished Friday's road loss to the Lakers with 29 points (9-of-17 shooting), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    The triples are surprising but Barnes has seen a notable uptick in his attempts from deep and is shooting a respectable 40.2 percent from behind the arc. We wouldn't expect that to last all season, though it's possible, and we also wouldn't expect his current struggles from inside the arc (41.6 percent) to last either. Barnes has changed his stat mix a bit this year but until he starts bringing steals or blocks he's unlikely to move from his middle-round perch.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson is not listed on the team's pregame injury report and will play on Wednesday.

    Johnson will come off the bench as rookie Bruce Brown sticks in the starting lineup. Johnson is not worth owning in most leagues, especially with Reggie Bullock expected to return for Saturday's game.

  • Davis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Davis Bertans is not listed on the Spurs' injury report for Thursday's game against the Clippers.

    Bertans missed the past two games as he and his wife welcomed their first child – congrats to the Bertans family. Bertans has started over Dante Cunningham at times, but even as a starter he wasn't holding standard league value. He helps the Spurs' depth in the frontcourt, but is only a deeper league play right now.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - New Orleans Pelicans

    Coach Alvin Gentry said he wants to taper back the minutes for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday starting with Wednesday's game.

    AD and Jrue are leading the NBA in minutes played right now, but being in the Western Conference, every game is vital. The Pels are also missing Nikola Mirotic, E'Twaun Moore and Elfrid Payton right now, making it harder to play your stars fewer minutes. The distribution of playing time will be something to watch for tonight's game.

  • Jeff Green - F - Washington Wizards

    Jeff Green will start for the injured Otto Porter Jr. against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Uncle Jeff has sustained top-150 value as mainly a bench player, so he should be a decent streaming option in this contest. Kelly Oubre is still the preferred fantasy option with Porter out. Markieff Morris and newly acquired Sam Dekker should help absorb the rest of the minutes.

  • E'Twaun Moore - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore (lower leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Moore only played 16 minutes on Sunday and did not play on Monday. He's clearly not fully recovered yet and is starting to be hard to hold onto in standard leagues. Solomon Hill, Darius Miller and Wesley Johnson will continue to see increased minutes without Moore.

  • Jaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest with the Wizards.

    Brown had a wrist injury after Monday's game, so a day off might actually be okay for him. Semi Ojeleye should see some extra minutes off the bench while Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum will help pick up the slack as starters. We'd expect this is the only game Brown misses, but the Celtics do play Friday and Saturday, so watch his status.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter Jr. (right knee contusion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

    Porter left Monday's game after seven minutes. He was considered day-to-day and was a game-time decision, but ultimately can't go. Kelly Oubre, Markieff Morris and Tomas Satoranksy are the main beneficiaries while Jeff Green could see a few extra minutes as well.

  • Reggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game but is expected to play Saturday, according to coach Dwane Casey.

    Bullock has missed a handful of games in a season that has not gone well for him. It seems he's been nicked up all year and has not been able to hit his stride. He had a career in year in 2017-18, but has not settled in yet. It is encouraging that Casey said he expects Bullock to play Saturday. If he can stay healthy and get in a groove, he can easily return to last year's form.

  • Kevin Knox - F - New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox will start Wednesday over Mario Hezonja.

    Coach David Fizdale was considering this after Sunday's game. Knox played very well (26 points, 15 rebounds) and Hezonja only logged five minutes. Knox should get every opportunity as this is a lost season for the Knicks. Hezonja has not played well this season and should not be owned in standard leagues.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) will return and start on Wednesday, but will have a minutes restriction.

    Baynes was probable for this one already, but with the restriction, he will be hard to trust as a daily play. Robert Williams was incredible on Monday and Daniel Theis will be in for some minutes as well. Al Horford will be back soon, so no need to pick up Baynes.
