• Julius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Julius Randle had a career-night in Friday’s 122-110 loss to the visiting Blazers, scoring 45 points on a ridiculous 20-0f-34 from the field, adding two 3s, 11 rebounds, six assists, three blocks, two steals and seven turnovers in 42 minutes.

    The seven turnovers and his 3-for-11 from the line take some of the shine off that line, but not much. Randle has averaged over 30 points a game over his last three with massive usage as Anthony Davis (rest) and Jrue Holiday (abdominal strain) continue to miss games. Hopefully, he can keep it up for owners battling in H2H playoffs.

  • Jawun Evans - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jawun Evans has been claimed off waivers by the Thunder.

    Evans, on a two-way contract, was waived by the Suns. Yesterday it was reported that the Rockets would be putting in a claim but with OKC higher in the pecking order, they'll get Evans. He'll help give the Thunder some extra depth in the backcourt and slot in behind Raymond Felton, though there's not going to be much playing time available.

  • Matthew Dellavedova - G - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) remains out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Delly has been out for about two weeks now and is not going to factor into fantasy owners' decisions moving forward.

  • Rodney McGruder - G/F - Miami Heat

    Rodney McGruder (left knee soreness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Magic.

    McGruder is not on the fantasy radar.

  • Trevor Ariza - F - Washington Wizards

    Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Lakers.

    The Wizards haven't shut Ariza down just yet but that looks to be where things are heading. Troy Brown will continue to start in his place and is worth a look in deep leagues, while Ariza is fairly safe to drop in most formats.

  • Tony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Tony Parker (personal) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Parker has been watching a lot of games from the sidelines lately between his personal absence and ample rest days. His return figures to impact Malik Monk and Devonte' Graham.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion) is probable to play on Tuesday.

    MKG has missed the last three games while he was in the concussion protocol but is likely to return tomorrow. He'll need to battle for playing time with Miles Bridges and Frank Kaminsky at the four spot. No need to look his way for fantasy.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Batum missed Charlotte's pair of games on the weekend, so hopefully that rest served him well. He'll go back to being a low-end play when he returns, though Miles Bridges' improved play could make a dent in Batum's playing time. Dwayne Bacon is the most likely to lose minutes when the Hornets are at full strength.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Zeller will miss his eighth straight game tomorrow and can be dropped with fantasy owners needing immediate production at this point in the year. Frank Kaminsky was the pickup of choice last week but it's been Willy Hernangomez who's putting up numbers over the last couple of games. Bismack Biyombo has been playing limited minutes as a starter but it's the other two who are better plays — Hernangomez offers more upside while Kaminsky is the target if you need threes.

  • Ben Simmons - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (gastroenteritis) has been ruled out of Monday's game with the Magic.

    Simmons had hit the injury report with gastroenteritis earlier in the season but has played through it until now. The Sixers have built up a little cushion on Indiana and Boston and can afford to give Simmons a night off to ensure he's 100 percent. T.J. McConnell should get a ton of run tonight and is worth a look in DFS or in season-long formats if you need assists and steals on solid efficiency.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams (low back contusion) is doubtful for Tuesday.

    Brad Stevens said that Williams could miss about a week after getting hurt on Saturday, so we wouldn't expect to see him over the next few days. He's unlikely to be in the rotation when he returns, assuming Al Horford is back to full strength by then.
