Josh Hart is officially being listed as questionable for Friday’s game.
Hart has been putting in good work at practice in his recovery from a hand fracture and all signs point to him returning in the near future. The backup point guard job is up for grabs with Isaiah Thomas down and Lonzo Ball sustained a knee injury on Wednesday, so there should be minutes available. Hart will need to outplay Alex Caruso and Tyler Ennis to take the lion’s share of reserve minutes but that doesn’t seem outlandish given he was already the fill-in starter of choice for long stretches this season. Hart is worth picking up in all deeper leagues for now and could play his way into low-end value in 12-14-team formats.
