• JJ Redick - G - Philadelphia Sixers

    JJ Redick (back tightness) returned from a two-game absence and scored 20 points with four 3s, two assists and a steal in Friday's loss to the visiting Hawks.

    It was good to see that the time off didn't affect Redick's game as this is his third straight with 20 or more points. He's been a safe, efficient top-80 play in 9-cat over the last two months.

  • Jeff Teague - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    An ill Jeff Teague headed to the locker room in Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

    He was questionable coming into this contest and gave it a go but it appears that he's still under the weather possibly unable to continue. If he can't return expect to see Derrick Rose to soak up his minutes and possibly a bit of Jerryd Bayless.

  • Jeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Jeremy Lamb had a tough time on offense for the Hornets on Sunday, going 4-for-13 from the field to finish with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two triples and a block.

    While his scoring efficiency tonight left a lot to be desired, Lamb has earned enough of our trust equity to deserve a pass. He's someone who can fill up the box score and thanks to his locked-in role of being the Hornets second scoring option, Lamb has been able to deliver bankable mid-round value in 8/9-cat on the season.

  • Bismack Biyombo - C - Charlotte Hornets

    Bismack Biyombo logged 24 minutes for the Hornets on Sunday and served up a double-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and one blocked shot.

    It was not an eye-catching line but the takeaway here is that it's something that's, at the very least, the kind of production worthy of a roster spot in 14-team leagues or deeper. Willy Hernangomez was but a shadow with six points and three rebounds to his name in 18 minutes of action.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (hamstring), who has missed the last six games, has been tagged as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

    He was a full participant at practice, so we know that Rubio is definitely close to a return. Stay tuned for updates at shootaround because he could be upgraded to probable, depending on how he feels. Donovan Mitchell has been balling while Rubio has been out, so their shared-backcourt dynamic will be something to watch.

  • Aaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon (lower back soreness) is questionable for Monday's game.

    Gordon was unable to play on Saturday because of his back pain, which he equated to a similar issue he dealt with in November that forced him to miss a game. Hopefully he'll be able to return relatively quickly this time as well. Jonathan Isaac moved down to power forward while Jonathon Simmons moved into the starting lineup on Saturday, and if Gordon sits that should be the same configuration we see this time around.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

    Embiid looked a little slow in the first half of Saturday's game, but turned things on in the second half. He's going to be on the injury report quite a bit going forward, so we'll just have to wait for more news to come out.

  • Jimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler (sore right wrist) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets.

    Butler had a rough shooting game on Saturday, so he could have been playing on a bad foot in that game. The Sixers play late on Monday, but if you have to set a weekly lineup, or your lineup locks at the start of the first game, you'll have to get up early and may be forced into a tough decision.

  • Lonzo Ball - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lonzo Ball will miss three-to-four weeks with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain.

    This is quite unfortunate for Ball owners, but was somewhat expected. Rajon Rondo (finger) is worth an add if you can hold him until he comes back. Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma should see a big uptick in usage and time with the ball, but it could get ugly for the Lakers. Josh Hart is worth an add with the added touches he will see.

  • Jeff Teague - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (illness) is active against the Suns on Sunday.

    We got a quick scare with the questionable tag just an hour-and-a-half before tip-off, but Teague should be just fine. Make sure he's in your lineups.

  • Danilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers

    Danilo Gallinari (back spasms) did not travel with the team and coach Doc Rivers said there is a solid chance he misses all four games of the upcoming road trip.

    Gallo left after only eight minutes on Friday, and seems to be in for a lengthy absence – as he does. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played 42 minutes on Friday and the Clippers will likely go with a lot of small ball lineups without Gallo. Tyrone Wallace logged 18 minutes on Friday and should see an increased workload without Gallo.
