• Jordan Bell - F - Golden State Warriors

    Jordan Bell played 19 minutes on Monday night, producing six points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.

    Bell will have a chance at 20 mpg with Golden State's injuries up front, and he might not need much more than that to give fantasy players a short burst of standard-league value. The main attraction is his per-minute ability to deliver steals and blocks, though you're basically rolling the dice with an add in 12-14-team formats right now given his resume of inconsistency this season. There are worse fliers to take given Bell's upside but he hasn't done much to gain any traction this year.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is being listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Gibson missed his last contest with the calf strain and though he;s a trooper, there’s a chance the Wolves hold him out or shut him down. If that ends up the reality, Gorgui Dieng would make a nice add though the Wolves don’t have a great schedule going forward.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    The MRI results on Aron Baynes’ ankle were positive and he hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

    We assume this means Baynes won’s play on Saturday which would put Daniel Theis next in line get minutes off the bench. We should have an update after Saturday’s shootaround.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is questionable to play the Kings on Saturday.

    If Johnson can’t go, De’Anthony Melton should get another start. Melton has a high steals rate, but his upside is severely capped starting alongside usage monster Devin Booker.

  • Josh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns

    Josh Jackson (ankle sprain) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Kings.

    It’s pretty amazing that Jackson hasn’t already been ruled out but it wouldn’t be surprising if he ended up missing this one. Mikal Bridges and Troy Daniels would be the prime beneficiaries with Bridges being the preferred play by far.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward missed Friday's practice as he continues to go through concussion protocol and he may return on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

    The entire season from Hayward has been a total headache, with injury inconsistency, low minutes and generally very disappointing production. He may come back to play this weekend, but it seems difficult to trust him at this crucial time.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart will sit out against the Nets on Friday with a right knee issue.

    Now that the Lakers have virtually nothing to play for, there's no reason for Hart to push it and get on the court at risk of aggravation. Still, LeBron James plans to return for this one, so the upticks for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or Reggie Bullock may be short-lived.

  • LeBron James - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James will play in Friday's game against the Nets.

    The trainwreck season continues for the Lakers, but at least for this one James will suit up and pile up stats. It dings a few of the Lakers' role players, maybe cutting into the Alex Caruso hype train.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Jazz with his rotator cuff strain.

    Porter not being available is kind of expected at this point. It's very inconvenient right now for fantasy owners but this is unfortunately how it's going to go the rest of the way. He wants to play even though the Bulls 2018-19 season was over in like… 2017. We'll see if he can get into a game soon.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn is questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz with a back issue.

    This would be a big blow for Dunn owners in the home stretch if he was hobbled for the stretch run here. There's a lot of upside in Dunn's profile and he'll at least be in the top-100 conversation if he's healthy and on the floor.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine will be a game-time call on Saturday night against the Jazz with a right thigh contusion.

    LaVine plans to warm up and see how he feels before making a final call on his status. If he plays, he should definitely be in all lineups.
