• Jimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers did not need the "clutch" Jimmy Butler to come to work on Friday as they rolled over the Wizards 98-123, but he still remained productive on defense with 11 points, seven rebounds, one triple, four dimes and four steals.

    The low-scoring output is due to the blowout and his 25 minutes on the floor. This is the risk of being on such a dominant team. That said, there will be nights when the Sixers need him to step up and he will so hang tight.

Fantasy News

  • Jeff Green - F - Washington Wizards

    Jeff Green will start for the injured Otto Porter Jr. against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Uncle Jeff has sustained top-150 value as mainly a bench player, so he should be a decent streaming option in this contest. Kelly Oubre is still the preferred fantasy option with Porter out. Markieff Morris and newly acquired Sam Dekker should help absorb the rest of the minutes.

  • E'Twaun Moore - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore (lower leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Moore only played 16 minutes on Sunday and did not play on Monday. He's clearly not fully recovered yet and is starting to be hard to hold onto in standard leagues. Solomon Hill, Darius Miller and Wesley Johnson will continue to see increased minutes without Moore.

  • Jaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest with the Wizards.

    Brown had a wrist injury after Monday's game, so a day off might actually be okay for him. Gordon Hayward and Semi Ojeleye should see some extra minutes off the bench while Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum may see of few extra as starters. We'd expect this is the only game Brown misses, but the Celtics do play Friday and Saturday, so watch his status.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter Jr. (right knee contusion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

    Porter left Monday's game after seven minutes. He was considered day-to-day and was a game-time decision, but ultimately can't go. Kelly Oubre, Markieff Morris and Tomas Satoranksy are the main beneficiaries while Jeff Green could see a few extra minutes as well.

  • Reggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game but is expected to play Saturday, according to coach Dwane Casey.

    Bullock has missed a handful of games in a season that has not gone well for him. It seems he's been nicked up all year and has not been able to hit his stride. He had a career in year in 2017-18, but has not settled in yet. It is encouraging that Casey said he expects Bullock to play Saturday. If he can stay healthy and get in a groove, he can easily return to last year's form.

  • Kevin Knox - F - New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox will start Wednesday over Mario Hezonja.

    Coach David Fizdale was considering this after Sunday's game. Knox played very well (26 points, 15 rebounds) and Hezonja only logged five minutes. Knox should get every opportunity as this is a lost season for the Knicks. Hezonja has not played well this season and should not be owned in standard leagues.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) will return and start on Wednesday, but will have a minutes restriction.

    Baynes was probable for this one already, but with the restriction, he will be hard to trust as a daily play. Robert Williams was incredible on Monday and Daniel Theis will be in for some minutes as well. Al Horford will be back soon, so no need to pick up Baynes.

  • David Nwaba - G - Cleveland Cavaliers

    David Nwaba (knee soreness) will make his return Wednesday night and play on a minutes restriciton.

    Nwaba ended up missing nine games and we never got a real update on him at any point until now. He was starting before the injury occurred and he has a chance to start once he's back to full speed. The Cavs are also reportedly shopping Alec Burks and Rodney Hood, which would open a myriad of minutes for Nwaba. He's just a deep league guy until we get clarity on his role and is a potential stash in standard leagues.

  • Furkan Korkmaz - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz will start for the injured Jimmy Butler (groin) on Wednesday night.

    Korkmaz played very well after Butler went down on Monday. He set a new career-high of 18 points to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers. Landry Shamet started the second half on Monday, but the Sixers like Shamet's role off the bench. Korkmaz should provide the starters with a lot of spacing and will be a great daily play given his price and projected minutes. Shamet should see extra run as well.

  • Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo will be in the starting lineup on Wednesday but has an unspecified minutes restriction.

    The Pacers are planning on subbing him out earlier than usual in an effort to save some of his minutes for the second half. Tyreke Evans, Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday will all see their minutes cut tonight but that should only affect deep-league players.
