• Hassan Whiteside - C - Miami Heat

    Hassan Whiteside (hip pointer) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Rockets.

    Whiteside will miss his second straight game tonight because of the hip pointer. Bam Adebayo started in place of Whiteside last night, and looks to get another start tonight. Abedayo is a must-add until we learn more about Whiteside's hip ailment.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker hit just 11-of-25 of his shots from the field but still put up 36 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, six 3s, and two steals in Saturday's 124-117 win over the Celtics.

    Kemba is doing all that he can so that the Hornets manage to snag one of the last remaining playoff spot in the East. He continues to play out of his mind and fantasy owners love it that he's not being considered to be shut down for the season yet.

  • Miles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges put up 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Celtics, adding seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers to his line in 34 minutes.

    He logged 34 minutes this time and was the second highest minutes behind Kemba Walker again. Although, the increased opportunities and minutes is a direct result of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) being out for tonight. The increase in minutes are encouraging but don't expect it to hold up once MKG comes back.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (back) is being examined by team doctors after sustaining a late fall in tonight's game against the Hornets.

    Stay tuned for more updates regarding the severity of this injury that he might have sustained.

  • Harry Giles III - F/C - Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) will not play tonight in Saturday's game against the Suns.

    Marvin Bagley is now back so Giles' upside for the remainder of the season is now limited.

  • Dwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Dwayne Bacon started and played 31 minutes in Saturday's win over the Celtics, providing 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Nic Batum wasn't available in tonight's matchup hence Bacon getting the nod to start on this one and logging more minutes than what he usually gets. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should grab him if he's still on the wire.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving dropped 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, four threes and two steals in 35 minutes in Saturday's 117-124 loss to the Hornets.

    The Celtics lost steam in the fourth quarter which led to the Hornets stealing this game on their home floor. Despite the loss, it doesn't take away the fact that Irving is still a top-10 player this season and fantasy owners should be wary once the team decides he needs to rest in some games before the playoffs starts.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum shot just 5-of-17 from the field for 12 points in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, although he did add six rebounds, four assists, a block and two threes in 37 minutes.

    He was able to get his touches tonight with Gordon Hayward out but didn't get to take advantage of it because of the inefficient night. Tatum is currently a top-130 player right now and fantasy owners should take a chance on him to explode if they have a streaming spot open.

  • Marcus Morris - F - Boston Celtics

    Marcus Morris posted 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three threes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets.

    Fantasy owners would love to see this type of all-around game every night but the increased minutes was a direct result of Gordon Hayward's (concussion protocol) absence tonight. He's been hovering outside the top-100 and is not a must-own player unless you have a streaming spot open on your roster.

  • Jaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown put up 29 points albeit in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, going 10-of-13 from the field with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

    The absence of Gordon Hayward (concussion protocol) gave Brown the opportunity to hoist up more shots and be able to put up all-around stat lines like the one he did tonight. He's a good streamer in almost category but don't expect these type of numbers nightly.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is expected to miss a month of action.

    He's not fantasy relevant in any way at this point of the season so this update shouldn't shake up most fantasy teams.
