• Joe Harris - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris posted 19 points, four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in Saturday's win, all while going 5-of-7 from the field.

    More of the same from Harris, who has really been excellent from the jump in a true breakout season. A lot of casual observers first saw Harris at the All-Star festivities, but he's been killing it all season. He's been must-start for quite some time now but continues to go under-owned.

Fantasy News

  • Larry Nance Jr. - F - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. (rib contusion) will return to the lineup in Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks.

    Nance has missed the last five games and will return on the same night that both Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson do, so he's tough to throw right back into lineups. We've seen Larry Drew play Nance less than he should when the Cavs have their frontcourt mainstays available but he should be picked up in standard leagues given the top-100 upside that Nance holds, even in a reserve role. Ante Zizic and Marquese Chriss are the big losers from Cleveland's return to full strength.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Much like Tuesday's game against the Lakers, the Bucks shouldn't need Giannis to take down a vastly inferior opponent. It's a crushing blow to his fantasy owners, but it's big news for anyone leaning on Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez. D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova should pick up the slack off the bench and are viable DFS darts. The Bucks have been blessed with good health throughout the year but have taken three big hits in the last week, though Antetokounmpo's injury is still not a long-term concern.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (lower back contusion) is available for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    The Cavs get their entire frontcourt rotation back in action tonight, but at least fantasy owners know that Love can be plugged into lineups. We're anticipating that he misses a few more games down the stretch but he's going to return early-round numbers whenever he takes the floor. David Nwaba will head back to the bench tonight.

  • Christian Wood - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have claimed Christian Wood off waivers from the Bucks.

    Wood didn't get much of a chance to play in Milwaukee but absolutely dominated in Summer League and is tearing up the G-League with 29.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.2 blocks and 0.9 3-pointers in 35.3 mpg. He's definitely on the deep-league radar with Anthony Davis playing less and less these days. Julius Randle, Cheick Diallo and Jahlil Okafor are the other bigs on the New Orleans roster but we could see the team dial things back on Randle, which would give Wood a shot to produce. He's a great target for silly season.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (rest) is not on the injury report and will play on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    Embiid sat out last night and was fully expected to play in this one since the listed reason for his last absence was load management rather than further knee issues. If you had even the slightest worry, you can put that to bed barring something out of left field.

  • TJ Warren - F - Phoenix Suns

    TJ Warren (right ankle soreness) remains out for Thursday's game against the Pistons.

    Warren recently told reporters that he wants to play before the season ends, but he is running out of time to make that happen, as the Suns have just 10 games left. Warren can be ignored for fantasy purposes, as he has yet to return to practice.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Thursday.

    De'Anthony Melton should start again and is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners who need steals with a few rebounds and assists to boot. Along with Johnson, Kelly Oubre is also doubtful for Thursday, making Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges even more tempting as we gain more clairty on these situations.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) returned to practice on Wednesday and will suit up to play against the Pistons on Thursday.

    Holmes has had a productive last two games with avergaes of 11.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and a steal in 15.3 mpg. He's an option in deep-leagues for those needing big man stats, but doesn't play enough to provide value elsewhere.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr. - F - Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. (left thumb sprain) did not practice on Wednesday, and his status remains iffy for Thursday's game against the Pistons after sitting out Monday vs. the Bulls.

    This is unfortunate news for Oubre owners, as he has been awesome as a member of the Suns, providing top-40 value in nine-cat leagues over the last two months. Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges both stand to absorb the majority of Oubre's 32.9 mpg over the last month for as long as Oubre is out, and are well worth a look as we see how this situation plays out.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is out for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    The Bucks are taking a cautious appraoch with the veteran big man. When Gasol returns, he could see a few extra minutes off the bench with Nikola Mirotic expected to miss the next few weeks.
