• Jrue Holiday - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday played valiantly in Friday's 103-107 loss to the Grizzlies, tallying 20 points, 11 assists, five rebounds and one blocked shot.

    This fell short of Holiday's stat-sheet-stuffing performances in recent games, but owners will be happy to take his double-double nonetheless. With Elfrid Payton expected to miss December as he recovers from surgery on his finger, count on Holiday to make this holiday season merry and bright for managers who trusted him with their late second-round picks on draft day.

  • Jimmer Fredette - G - Phoenix Suns

    Jimmer Fredette is available to make his Suns debut on Saturday vs. the Kings.

    While we should see Fredette on the court, the Suns don’t want to push him or put too much on his plate so soon after signing with the team. The standard caveat is that we’re in the fantasy silly season and Fredette is probably excited to reestablish his game in the NBA after playing the last three seasons for the Chinese Basketball Association. He averaged 36.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists this season for the Shanghai Sharks.

  • 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 seeing as they’re out of the playoff hunt. 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’t 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.
