• James Harden
    G, Houston Rockets

    James Harden (left hamstring strain) will not play on Friday against the Nets.

    This wasn’t unexpected as the reported plan all along was for Harden to try to make his return on Saturday vs. the Bulls and he remains probable to play in that one. Chris Paul and Eric Gordon will continue to see increased workloads as the Rockets try to right the ship after a 1-5 start.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright (groin) is unlikely to play in Sunday's game versus Kings.

    Wright only played 5 minutes during Saturday's game before exiting. Jalen Brunson and Seth Curry stand to see a few extra minutes if Wright sits out.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Not much of a surprise here as Irving is expected to be sidelined for a few more weeks. Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to dominate with the starting role.

  • Boban Marjanovic
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Boban Marjanovic posted 15 points and 16 rebounds on 6-of-7 shooting from the field.

    Boban benefited from the blowout in a big way, but struggles to see regular minutes when the Mavs are healthy.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic dropped 22 points, nine assists and 6 rebounds in only 26 minutes of action during Saturday's 130-84 blowout win.

    Doncic played up until the end of the third quarter and was on route to another triple-double. He continues to improve on his free throw shooting going 8-of-10 tonight.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) told NBC Sports Washington on Saturday that he expects to, "…be out a few more games and then be able to come back."

    Thomas added that he always feels like he can play but has to listen to the medical staff. He has been difficult to hold in standard leagues even before the injury due to lack of supporting stats so don't hesitate if there is a hot pickup available. Ish Smith started the last two for Thomas with 17.0 points, 2.0 triples, 8.0 assists and 0.5 steals so he hopes to keep rolling. He did not do much with the starting job before he lost it to Thomas earlier this season so keep your expectations timid.

  • Justise Winslow
    Team, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (lower back strain) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Sunday.

    Winslow missed Friday's game with the injury and Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and Derrick Jones will continue filling if Winslow has to miss any more time. He has not been fortunate with injuries this year and lost his starting point guard job after missing several weeks with a concussion. Although now coming off the bench, he remains a key rotation piece and has averaged 11.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 31.2 minutes in the five games since returning from the concussion. The lack of three-point shooting and defensive stats make him a very difficult hold in standard leagues however and this latest injury should make your decision easier if there is a hot free agent pickup.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    KZ Okpala (left Achilles) will remain sidelined on Sunday.

    Okpala has appeared in two games so far in his rookie season, but he's been out with his Achilles issue since the end of November. Fantasy managers shouldn't be waiting on him at all.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo (groin contusion) is questionable to face the Bulls on Sunday.

    This is the first we are hearing Adebayo's injury so stay tuned for an update on Sunday. As expected, he has been one of the most improved fantasy players this season but his lack of 3-point shooting and poor free-throw percentage have held him to around top-60 value in standard leagues. He is yet to miss a game this season but if he does, we would assume Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard would both take on a bigger role.

  • Dion Waiters
    SG, Miami Heat

    Dion Waiters (illness) will not play on Sunday.

    Waiters hasn't appeared in a single game yet, and the illness is poorly timed since the Heat are dealing with multiple injuries elsewhere that could open the door for him to play. Despite that potential opportunity, Waiters is not close to the fantasy radar.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have ruled Delon Wright (right adductor strain) out for the rest of Saturday's game.

    The downgrade from questionable to out took about five minutes, which isn't a great sign. Adductor injuries can be multi-week affairs, so fantasy GMs should be preparing to move forward without Wright for a little bit. Jalen Brunson, Seth Curry and JJ Barea will have more minutes headed their way.
