• Jaylen Adams
    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Speaking in a radio interview on Wednesday morning, Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said that Jaylen Adams will "basically, taking Jeremy's [Lin] spot."

    That means Adams is going to play backup point guard and get a little time at shooting guard as well. Lin averaged 19.7 minutes a night with the Hawks, which will be a nice step up from Adams' current 4.5 mpg. This has been the expected course since Lin's buyout but with confirmation from the GM, Adams is on the radar in deeper leagues.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant will start in place of Paul Millsap who is out with a right quadriceps strain on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

    Grant will face his old team the Thunder in a revenge game. He was able to have a great game with Millsap out last game.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic sprained his right ankle and is questionable to return on Saturday vs. the Heat.

    Doncic's ankle looked to have touched the floor as he turned his ankle on Kendrick Nunn's foot. The good news is that he hasn't been listed out straight away.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic sprained his right ankle and hopped to the locker room early in the first quarter on Saturday vs. the Heat.

    Doncic sprained his right ankle on a drive to the rim as he stepped on Kendrick Nunn's foot. He was holding his ankle in pain before he hopped to the locker room. Updates to come.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (sprained left ankle) has been listed as doubtful for Sunday vs. the Warriors.

    Fox originally said that he's targeting a return, either vs. the Hornets or against the Grizzlies. He has been going hard in workouts and not experiencing any pain. Look for him to be on a minutes limit early on as the Kings ease him back into game shape.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left calf strain) recorded 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer and two blocks in Saturday's OT loss to the Spurs.

    Baynes was probable heading into this game and it's a good thing he gave it a go and delivered a serviceable line for his owners. Baynes' heightened value has a fuse as long (or as short) as it takes for Deandre Ayton (suspension) to get back on the floor.

  • Thon Maker
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Thon Maker will start in place of Andre Drummond (eye) on Saturday vs the Rockets.

    Maker and Christian Wood will likely be splitting centre minutes with Andrew Drummond out. Maker got the start but Wood has the higher fantasy upside.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric tied his career-high with 17 rebounds on Saturday, adding 19 points on 8-of-17 shootign with one 3-pointer and four assists to round out his line for the night.

    Saric was probable coming into this game with some lower back soreness, but by the result was healthy enough to deliver a fat double-double by his standards. He's a sell-high candidate given Deandre Ayton's (suspension) impending return.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio was excellent in Saturday's loss to the Spurs, recording a season-high 25 points on 10-of-20 shooting with three rebounds, 13 dimes, two 3s, one steal and one block.

    This was World-Cup Rubio showed up tonight and stepped up in the absence of Devin Booker (sore wrist). Overall, Rubio has been a top-50 beast in 9-cat as one of the most well-rounded Tier 2 point guards in the game.

  • Mikal Bridges
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Mikal Bridges started for Devin Booker (sore wrist) on Saturday and quietly tallied five points, 10 rebounds, four dimes and two steals.

    Bridges has been a bit of a letdown overall this season with Kelly Oubre Jr. stealing a bit of his thunder and his usage as a perimeter defender. That said, Bridges has done enough to stay relevant in 14-team leagues or deeper. Oubre struggled with his shot in this one, going 5-for-15 from the field for 17 points, eight rebounds, two 3s and one steal.
