• John Henson scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with six rebounds, three steals and a block on Monday.

    Henson is more of a specialist, but the fact that he averages 1.5 blocks and 59.3 percent shooting means he shouldn’t be left on any standard league wires as he’s top-12 in one of the scarcest categories. There are trade rumors concerning the Bucks and their pursuit of a big man, but he should be held onto until something concrete arises.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (nose) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Daniel Gafford will continue to see extra minutes in Kornet's absence and made the most of on Monday by scoring 21 points in 20 minutes. Kornet can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower left back spasms) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    It will once again be Jaxson Hayes and Nicolo Melli getting all the run that they can handle in a depleted frontcourt. Hayes is coming off a 10 point, 10 rebound and three block performance and is a cheap DFS target on Tuesday's small slate. With Derrick Favors health an uncertainty Hayes also makes for a target in season long leagues.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Blazers.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been red-hot the last two games and stands to benefit, along with a returning Frank Jackson.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson (left neck contusion) is being listed as available to play against the blazers on Tuesday.

    Jackson should get a nice chunk of time with so many injuries in the Pelicans back court rotation. He is a punt option in DFS.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Alving Gentry said that Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) is expected to return for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    The return of Ingram may push Kenrich Williams back to a reserve role, though he should still see a hefty dose of minutes either way. Ingram was putting up top-25 value in 9/8 cat leagues before going down and has a nice matchup against a debuting Carmelo Anthony tonight. Feel free to get him back in your lineups.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) is out for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Porter is expected to miss a few weeks at the minimum, in what has been a disappointing season thus far. Chandler Hutchison has absorbed the majority of Porter's minutes while also closing out fourth quarters. He is a name to monitor in deeper leagues.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is available to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Carter has only put up top-120/125 value in 9/8 cat leagues to begin the year as the defensive potential he showed as a rookie has yet to arrive. Carter has some competition brewing at the five-spot after Daniel Gafford busted out for 21 points in 20 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Langston Galloway started the second half on Friday after Snell left early and may see himself in there again. Luke Kennard will also see a few extra minutes in smaller lineups.

  • Alen Smailagic
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Alen Smailagic (right ankle sprain) has been cleared to begin accelerated on-court basketball activities and will rejoin the Warriors over the weekend.

    Like teammate Kevon Looney, Smailagic will practice in the G League this week with an eye toward getting back during the weekend. Smailagic is not a recommended pickup, but he could conceivably carve out a role on a depleted Warriors team when he gets up to speed.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) will be re-evaluated again in 2 weeks after a test revealed improvement on Tuesday.

    Evans has some appeal with Stephen Curry (hand) out for a while, but will need to get healthy first. He is a name to consider in the coming weeks when he gets back in the fold on a depleted Warriors team.
