• Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow started the second half for the injured Rodney McGruder scored nine points on 4-of-9 shooting in 32 minutes in a loss to the Jazz on Sunday.

    Winslow has been awful this season despite seeing 27.5 minutes per game and this contest was no different. Even with the increase in minutes he should not be added in any leagues and can be left on the wire.

Fantasy News

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) is questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Holmes returned to practice yesterday and was initially reported as available to play tonight, but the official report still has him questionable. Fantasy owners might not have their defensive dynamo available tonight.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (illness) is expected back for Friday's game against Lakers on Friday.

    Napier will return to a reserve role, where there is not much fantasy value.

  • Allen Crabbe - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Allen Crabbe (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Lakers.

    This will mark Crabbe's third-straight missed game. Caris LeVert is worth a look, as he showed some big-time flashes earlier in the season.

  • LeBron James - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James (groin) was a half particiapant in practice on Thursday, but is expected to play on Friday vs. the Nets.

    If LeBron is good to go tomorrow, it will have ripple effects throughout the rotation as everyone would be looking at a few less minutes. It will be especially interesting to see what happens to the values of Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who have both put up top-50 value in 9-cat leagues the last week.

  • Kadeem Allen - G - New York Knicks

    Kadeem Allen (illness) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Allen is likely to return from the illness after a one-game absence, and could potentially be looking at 30+ minutes with the injuries to Allonzo Trier and Dennis Smith Jr., plus the uncertainty of Frank Ntilikina in the guard rotation. Allen is worth a look as a cheap dart throw for DFS.

  • Allonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier (strained left calf) is expected to miss a few more games.

    Trier is joining Dennis Smith Jr. on the sidelines for at least a few more games, opening up extra bench minutes for Kadeem Allen, John Jenkins and potentially Frank Ntilikina behind Damyean Dotson, who has been a top-100 player in 9-cat leagues the past month. Allen looks like a nice streaming and DFS option, with the potential for 30+ minutes.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (sprained right ankle) is questionable to play the Nuggets on Friday.

    Super Mario Hezonja, who has provided top-60 value in 9-cat leagues the past month, will continue to benefit from Vonleh's injury.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Coach David Fizdale said the Knicks didn't really have a practice today, so Frank Ntilikina (groin) is still questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    When Ntilikina returns, he will battle Kadeem Allen for backup PG minutes behind Emmanuel Mudiay while Dennis Smith Jr. is sidelined.

  • Cory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers

    Cory Joseph will remain in the starting lineup against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Joseph played just 20 minutes as the starter on Tuesday against the Clippers, as he was overshadowed by Tyreke Evans' big game. Evans is the preferred play between the two, but Joseph is still worth a look as he has averaged two steals over the last two weeks, and is capable of playing playing better than he has recently.

  • Darren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers

    Darren Collison (right quad contusion) will not play against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Tyreke Evans, who had his best game of the season with a 19-8-7 line on Tuesday without Collison, is worth a stream and an add. Cory Joseph started in Collison's absence on Tuesday, and is worth a look, though he hasn't been doing much lately outside of steals.
