• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid is being listed as doubtful with an upper respiratory illness for Sunday's matchup with the Nets.

    Embiid had been rolling after playing really well in both games of a back-to-back set, so this obviously very disappointing for his owners. Al Horford (knee & hamstring soreness) is still listed as questionable for this one as well, putting the Sixers at risk of being incredibly thin in the middle. If neither are able to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn could be looking at a ton of minutes.

Fantasy News

  • Josh Hart
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Josh Hart (left ankle) is listed as available on Wednesday.

    Hart has played 30 minutes in seven out of the past eight games but only played 17 minutes in the last game with Jrue Holiday returning. The Pelicans' rotations got even more crowded with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday. Hart is someone to watch while the Pelicans figure out their rotations, but don't hesitate to drop him in standard leagues if he plays low minutes and has a dud on Wednesday.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose twisted his ankle on Wednesday but remained in the game.

    Rose tweaked his ankle but ran it off and stayed in the game. He appears to be fine.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (illness) is available to play on Wednesday after missing the past two games.

    Green missed Friday's game with a sprained finger and Sunday's game with an illness. Green will continue to be frustrating to own with these missed games becoming more common. He's also a shutdown risk and owners should try to sell-high once Green gets a few good stat lines in a row.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) will start on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Holiday put up 36 points with seven threes in his return from his left elbow strain on Monday. Holiday will take a slight hit with Zion Williamson returning, but he should be a top-40 player still.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday (sore right thumb) is available to play on Wednesday against the Suns.

    Holiday has lost his run of standard-league value since the return of Malcolm Brogdon and Victor Oladipo's (knee rehab) return will also put a dent in Holiday's value. Holiday is just a name to remember for when the Pacers' are short-handed at the guard position.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will return and start on Wednesday after missing one game with lower back soreness.

    Favors has been producing mid-round value while he's on the court. His injuries have been the only thing holding him back. Favors will likely take a slight hit with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday, but he should continue to start on keep standard-league value. His return combined with Zion returning is a big blow to Jaxson Hayes' value and Hayes moves to being a luxury stash only in standard-leagues.

  • Terance Mann
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Terance Mann left Wednesday's game briefly with a cut lip but was able to return.

    Mann got the start on Wednesday with Patrick Beverley, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George out. Those who started him in DFS will be pleased to see he's back in the game.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw was hit in the face on Wednesday and will not return with a facial contusion.

    McCaw failed to record a stat in less than a minute of playing time. His absence has little fantasy impact.

  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson (right knee surgery) will start in his regular season debut for the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Williamson will probably be on a minutes restriction and Coach Gentry said he would be used in "short bursts". Zion may take some time to ramp up, but his upside is tantalizing.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw was hit in the mouth on Wednesday and had to be helped to the locker room.

    McCaw doesn't have value outside of 30-team leagues now that the Raptors are healthy. He should be left on the waiver wire in all formats and isn't worth holding if he misses time.
