• Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (shoulder) will miss Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Tatum was questionable coming into this game but it looks like he's been downgraded and wasn't feeling too good about the shoulder. With him out, expect Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris to see some more opportunity. The C's don't play again until Thursday so hopefully Tatum can suit up then.

Fantasy News

  • Harry Giles III - F/C - Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles III (left thigh contusion) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    With Giles out, Marvin Bagley will get some extra minutes as a backup 5 and Nemanja Bjelica looks more likely to continue his recent play. Bjelica has been a top-60 9-cat player over the past week and is a worthy streamer against the Mavs.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is now considered doubtful to play the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Gibson looks likely to miss a third-straight game. In his absence, we can expect Dario Saric, Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop to see some extra minutes. Dieng has the highest upside, especially for defensive stats, but Saric is worthy of a stream while he should see around 30 mpg.

  • Gerald Green - G/F - Houston Rockets

    Gerald Green will remain sidelined for the next 7 to 10 days in order to recover from a strained adductor he sustained last week.

    Green is a nice source for points and triples but with the latest news he is now a cut candidate with the Rockets playing only three times this week. Austin Rivers and Danuel House should pick up the slack for him but it’s really the James Harden show in Houston these days.

  • Miles Plumlee - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Miles Plumlee will have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and he will miss the rest of the season.

    Plumlee already had another procedure earlier this year but unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to recover yet. He has no fantasy value whatsoever.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has officially cleared the NBA Concussion Protocol and is expected to play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    MKG will return after being sidelined for the last three games. He is still expected to play behind Miles Bridges and Frank Kaminsky so he isn’t a reliable fantasy contributor at this point.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum is still suffering from a virus and doesn’t anticipate playing on Tuesday against the Spurs.

    Batum said that he has lost eight pounds since getting sick and it makes sense for him to not being able to return to the court just yet. Dwayne Bacon should continue to start and is someone to consider in deeper formats as he scored 20 points in Sunday’s win.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Brad Stevens said that Al Horford is probable to play against the Cavs on Tuesday after participating in the morning shootaround.

    Horford was kept out of the last couple games as the Celtics opted to be cautious with their big man due to what was described as knee soreness. It looks likely that he returns tonight but make sure you double check closer to tip-off for the official confirmation. Horford has been impressive this year returning top-30 value with only the occasional rest day hurting his owners.

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Speaking to reporters this morning, Brad Stevens said that Jayson Tatum is probable for Tuesday’s game against the Cavs after participating in the team’s shootaround.

    Tatums missed the game on Sunday but looks to be on track to return after a short absence. The Celtics will be without Kyrie Irving who is taking the night off so Tatum is looking at some increased usage against one of the bottom defenses of the league.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Josh Lewenberg of TSN is reporting that many Raptors officials have become increasingly confident in the team’s chances of re-signing Kawhi Leonard this summer.

    Kawhi has enjoyed a nice year in Toronto and has appeared in just 54 of Toronto’s 74 games, as the Raptors have proven that they’re willing to give him a quarter of the regular season off. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by Kawhi with those who know him and have been around him for years saying that he’s looking more and more comfortable with his new surroundings as the season has gone on. The Clippers, the Lakers and maybe the Knicks are expected to go after him this summer while it will be interesting to see how deep the Raptors make it into the playoffs.

  • Chris Boucher - F - Toronto Raptors

    Jordan Loyd, Malcolm Miller and Chris Boucher are all with the Raptors 905 for their playoff game against the Grand Rapids tonight.

    Boucher and Miller both earned rest-of-season contracts with the Raptors recently but they are still far away from getting any consistent playing time with the main squad. Toronto also signed Jodie Meeks during the weekend showing their intention to boost their bench with more veterans ahead of the playoffs that begin in a few weeks.
