• John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins is questionable for Friday's game against the Bulls with flu-like symptoms.

    Collins has put together a few good nights in a row but has been generally disappointing due to the injury luck and lack of defensive metrics this season. If he's unable to go, Omari Spellman could be a sneaky daily play.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon is expected to play tonight against the Hawks but he will rest against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    This is consistent with what Mike D’Antoni said recently about his intention to rest his veterans down the road. Austin Rivers and Kenneth Faried took the day off on Sunday and it will now be the turn of Gordon tomorrow night at Memphis. Danuel House seems like someone to target in deeper leagues as he has been impressive upon his return to the Rockets.

  • CJ Miles - F/G - Memphis Grizzlies

    An MRI revealed a stress reaction to CJ Miles’ left foot, which will require approximately 3-6 weeks of off-loading to resolve, causing the veteran forward to miss the remaining of the season.

    Miles appeared in 53 games for the Grizzlies and the Raptors in his 12th NBA season. He saw action in 13 games as a reserve for the Grizzlies and averaged 9.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.6 minutes. Chandler Parsons and Bruno Caboclo are the next men up but both are very inconsistent and hard to trust.

  • TJ Warren - F - Phoenix Suns

    Speaking to reporters in New Orleans, T.J. Warren made it clear that he wants to play before the season ends.

    Warren has missed the last 22 consecutive games with what Phoenix has called right ankle soreness. He had a right foot fracture in late January of 2016 that required surgery and cut his second NBA season short as he only played in 47 games. He then played 66 and 65 games the next two seasons, respectively, but he’s only played 43 games this year, knocking down a career-high 42.8 percent of his 3-pointers after shooting a career-low 22.2 percent last season. The Suns now have only 10 games remaining for the season and Warren hasn’t returned to practice yet so hopefully you have moved on from him.

  • Deyonta Davis - C - Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are signing center Deyonta Davis of G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors to a 10-day contract.

    With Tyler Zeller’s deal expiring, the Hawks were looking for some extra frontcourt help due to injuries to Omari Spellman, Alex Poythress and Miles Plumlee. Davis is averaging 9.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in 43 contests with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League and he is just 22 years old.

  • CJ McCollum - G - Trail Blazers

    Speaking to reporters on Monday, Damian Lillard said that he wants for C.J. McCollum to be himself when he comes back and that he is prepared to finish the regular season without him.

    This is just speculation on Dame’s part but it gives us a good perspective about McCollum’s injury and how he really was able to dodge a bullet. Jack Layman started on Monday but he fell short of any meaningful production while Rodney Hood and Seth Curry were able to carry some of the offensive burden for the Blazers. With McCollum expected to be evaluated in about a week from now it’s really up in the air if he will be able to come back and help fantasy owners.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller has officially been ruled out for the game against the Sixers tonight.

    Zeller is going to miss his fourth consecutive game making him a tough hold in standard leagues unless you can stash him in an IR spot. Bismack Biyombo should continue to start while Frank Kaminsky has been a nice late-season surprise after spending most of the year buried in Charlotte’s bench.

  • Damian Lillard - G - Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard led the Blazers to a 106-98 win over the Pacers on Monday with 30 points on 9-of-16 shooting while adding 15 assists, two rebounds, three steals, a block and four 3-pointers.

    With C.J. McCollum out for the rest of the week we can expect a lot of Dame Time going forward. Lillard drained shots from all over the floor, including a 3-pointer at nearly half court, and was dishing clean dimes to his teammates in the pick-and-roll all game. He logged 40 minutes and controlled the game the entire time he was on the floor and is going to have himself a big week.

  • Maurice Harkless - F - Trail Blazers

    Maurice Harkless scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting while adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer on Monday.

    Harkless came up big for Portland on the defensive end tonight and props to you if you streamed him. The Blazers play again on Wednesday and Sunday so it'll be hard to incorporate him as a streamer.

  • Jusuf Nurkic - C - Trail Blazers

    Jusuf Nurkic double-doubled on Monday before fouling out with 18 points and 11 boards to go with two assists.

    He fouled out on a questionable offensive foul while setting a screen against Wesley Matthews, but was able to provide owners with a solid line before exiting Monday's game. Nurkic destroyed the offensive glass tonight for the Blazers and his high activity on that end kept the Blazers in the game when their offense was stalling. He's been a top-40 player over the past month and it looks like he's going to finish the season strong.

  • Jake Layman - F - Trail Blazers

    Jake Layman started on Monday, but laid an egg, scoring zero points on 0-of-5 shooting with three rebounds.

    Layman drew the start, but put up a dud in the first half and didn't see much action in the second half. Rodney Hood (24 minutes with 11 points, one triple, one rebound, two assists, two steals and a block) and Seth Curry (25 minutes with 11 points, three triples, a rebound, an assist and a steal) took his minutes to close out the game but neither are attractive fantasy options.
