• Jabari Parker
    F, Chicago Bulls

    Jabari Parker is dealing with a right patellar tendon strain.

    Parker didn't play on Wednesday, though the Bulls didn't give any status update until about halfway through the game. If he's sidelined for any length of time it'll only improve the fantasy prospects of Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez. Parker is just a volume scorer who isn't a recommended add in most formats, though he might make some sense for certain deep-league builds.

Fantasy News

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid scored a team-high 22 points (8-of-18 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) and added 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Embiid's value continues to hover in the late second-round, which is slightly concerning. This may be the new reality now that Al Horford has joined the starting lineup. If you're in a head-to-head league and already concerned about Embiid missing fantasy playoff games, this may be a good time to shop him, as many may not realize Embiid has had a small drop in minutes and just about everything else this season.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 13 points (5-of-8 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Thybulle ended up with some extra run because Josh Richardson didn't get his full complement of minutes in this one. Although Thybulle didn't get his patented defensive stats, it's great to see him getting more comfortable on offense. He will still likely have a hard time putting up consistent standard league value on such a talented team.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) returned from a six-game absence on Tuesday and the rust showed as he shot just 1-for-8 (1-for-3 from deep), good for three points, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes.

    While Richardson is a must-start fantasy option, he's certainly not the mid-round player he was the last two seasons in Miami. If you're able to bench him, you may want to do so until he shows you he's healthy enough to put up top-100 production again.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton scored a game-high 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting in a 92-97 road loss to the Sixers on Tuesday, but he wasn't done, as he added seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals, three blocks and two treys in 40 minutes.

    Barton came out hot in this game. With this performance, he's now a top-75/60 (8-cat/9-cat) per-game player for the season, which is about where he was two seasons ago when he broke out. He often flies under the radar, so it's worth seeing the team that rosters him in your league values him appropriately.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic handed out 11 assists on Tuesday to go with 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting, seven rebounds, a block and a three in 33 minutes.

    Jokic seems to be rounding into form a bit lately, so there's still hope that he ends up in the neighborhood where he was drafted. No one drafted Jokic expecting a player ranked in the 30s. He may still be a wise buy-low if you can actually get him low.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish was reasonably effective off the bench for the Hawks on Tuesday, chipping in 14 points (6-of-13 shooting), seven rebounds, two 3s and an assist.

    Reddish has potential but still needs the game to slow down for him. Until then, he's more of a deep-league play.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter took another step forward on Tuesday, recording nine points (3-of-8 shooting), two rebounds, seven assists, three triples and one block in 26 minutes.

    Huerter has been slowly rounding into form recently and is arrow is pointing up. He's still a deep-league guy at the moment, but could make noise in the standard-league scene once he's got his legs fully under him again.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter soared to new heights on Tuesday with a career-high 28 points (11-of-17 shooting), four rebounds, three dimes, five 3s and one block in 40 minutes.

    Hunter showed no signs of the illness that initially gave him a probable tag prior to tonight's game. He had a quiet start to the season but has been heating up in recent games and has pinged on standard-league radars as of late.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    With Jamal Murray (trunk contusion) knocked out early in Tuesday's game, Monte Morris started the second half, ending with seven points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

    Murray's injury is not thought to be serious, but Morris is worth watching in case he gets a start or two. Morris was an efficient end-of-your-team point guard last season when he had a larger share of minutes.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo looked great on Tuesday as he recorded his first triple-double with 34 points on 13-of-18 shooting, 11 rebounds, a career-high 11 assists and two steals.

    Adebayo was upgraded from probable with a right groin contusion coming into this game, but it appears that he's not encumbered by it at all. Bam is a player with an untapped ceiling and we're looking at sky-high upside here.
