• Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin (ankle) practiced in full on Sunday and is hopeful to play on Monday vs. the Warriors.

    It looks like Lin will be good to go barring a setback and the Hawks will need all the firepower they have if they want to beat the Warriors. Lin is playing 20.0 minutes per game in his past two games but he has the ability to score in limited minutes. He's more of a handcuff for Trae Young than anything else.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    According to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Rockets have shown interest in acquiring Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

    The Lakers and Suns are connected in Trevor Ariza talks, but Los Angeles would need someone to take on Caldwell-Pope's $12 million contract — that's where the Rockets come in. Houston badly needs 3-and-D types but adding KCP to the roster would likely require them to find a taker for Brandon Knight, who hasn't played since early 2017. Ariza was a DNP-CD on Monday but no deal is imminent, and one wonders if the Rockets would just be interested in trading for Ariza themselves. Caldwell-Pope can also veto any trade, so he might not accept a move to Houston unless he's promised more opportunity than he's getting with the Lakers.

  • Brandon Knight - G - Houston Rockets

    Brandon Knight (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game.

    Whenever Knight returns it'll be his first NBA game action since February 15, 2017. Houston's bench is really hurting for scoring, especially if Eric Gordon continues to start, but it's going to be hard for them to lean on Knight given the amount of rust he'll need to shake off. It's possible he emerges as an option in extremely deep leagues but most of his fantasy utility figures to come from stream appeal when one of Houston's stars sits out.

  • Rajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo won't travel with the Lakers for Thursday's game in Houston and will see a hand specialist before determining the next steps in his recovery.

    This will be game No. 14 on the sidelines for Rondo but he's getting close to a return. He had been participating in the bulk of practices before needing his hand drained on Sunday, so if Thursday's visit goes well it's possible that we see Rondo make his return to the court next week. His return will hurt Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, but Ball is still a firm hold and should hold onto the starting job barring a total implosion.

  • Maurice Harkless - F - Trail Blazers

    Moe Harkless will sit out Wednesday's game for rest purposes.

    Harkless put up a low-key productive line in 31 minutes on Tuesday and is working his way onto the radar in 9-cat formats. The Blazers will give him the day off considering how brutal his road back from a seemingly innocuous knee procedure has been, but he's trending upwards and is at least a watch list candidate.

  • Anfernee Simons - G - Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons (illness) will not play on Wednesday night.

    Simons also missed Tuesday's game, so it's not shocking to see him miss both legs of a back-to-back. The young rookie won't play much this year and is only a stash for dynasty purposes.

  • Jonathon Simmons - F - Orlando Magic

    Jonathon Simmons (ankle) is questionable for Thursday vs. the Bulls.

    Simmons tweaked his ankle during practice and had his foot elevated and iced. His status is looking on the more doubtful end of questionable at this point. Wes Iwundu will get more playing time if he sits.

  • Brandon Ingram - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Ingram (ankle) will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

    Ingram is not traveling with the team on their road trip so he'll be out a few more games possibly. Josh Hart will continue to start and play heavy minutes along with Kyle Kuzma. Hart will take a big hit once Ingram returns, however.

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    James Ennis III (hamstring) will miss 1-2 weeks.

    Coach Mike D'Antoni said he could increase minutes for Danuel House, Gerald Green or play rookie Gary Clark again. Only deep leaguers are eyeing any of these guys so their values won't change much.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala (hip) will miss Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Iguodala will miss his second straight game. The veteran had been starting and playing a lot recently with injuries to the frontcourt. Now that everyone is back healthy it makes sense for the 34-year-old to get some rest games to avoid breaking down. He's only an asset on very deep leagues.

  • Hassan Whiteside - C - Miami Heat

    Hassan Whiteside will rejoin the team on their 3-game road trip.

    Whiteside is not with the team for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, but could return on either Friday vs. the Grizzlies or Sunday vs. the Pelicans. Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk have enjoyed some nice playing time boosts without the big man, but they will both head back to bench and may see around 15-20 minutes each. The 29-year-old has been having an excellent year, but is always a name to watch at the trade deadline.
