• Justin Holiday
    SG, Chicago Bulls

    Justin Holiday will draw into the starting five on Monday with Zach LaVine resting.

    The Bulls will rest LaVine for the rest of their back-to-back sets, and it looks like Holiday will be elevated into his old role on those occasions. Unfortunately he still resembles more of a streaming option at this point, though at least he can be targeted somewhat reliably. How the two players coexist next season will be interesting to track, as LaVine and Holiday are both capable of being solid fantasy assets. This may be purely a coincidence, but Chicago also gets to conveniently rest their best player against Brooklyn, who sits just behind them in the standings. Let the tanks rage on. Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba should see more run tonight, as the Bulls may still severely limit Holiday’s workload.

Fantasy News

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (abdominal tightness) will be a gametime call for Friday's contest with the Grizzlies.

    Fox wants to be out there and assuming everything goes well during warmups it sounds like he can push through the injury. It'd be nice if Fox was simply healthy, but at this point we'll have to be satisfied with the fact that he intends to push through the pain. Corey Joseph will get the first crack at point guard duties if Fox is forced to sit.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo (right ankle sprain) is active for Friday's Heat-Mavs game.

    Adebayo rolled right through the injury on Wednesday, and it is great that he will be back in the thick of things for the Heat on Friday. May the dream season, where Adebayo has lived up to the fantasy hype and then some, continue.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton will miss Friday's game against the Thunder with neck soreness.

    Middleton had been a beast for the Bucks, and maybe they just want to give him a rest. It's not clear how severe the situation is, but it'll be a replacement by committee while Middleton is out. Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez should benefit nicely.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White is dealing with a lower back strain from Thursday's practice, which has him questionable for Saturday's contest with the Knicks.

    It'd be rough if White's hot streak ended due to this injury, as he was crushing it over the last three games. While it'd be a shocker to see White go for 30 points for the fourth straight game, he is still looking like a nice pickup for points and 3-pointers at this point. The injury to Kris Dunn really opened the door for White, and you should be excited to see where this goes. Denzel Valentine is questionable for this one with left hamstring soreness.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Tomas Satoransky is listed as probable for Saturday's matchup against the Knicks due to a right thumb sprain

    Satoransky has embraced his role as point guard for the Bulls after a roller coaster first half of the season, and you should continue plugging him into your lineup with confidence. Most of the roster has been playing well with him at the wheel. He's a consistent late-round value in standard leagues who is on the rise.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Knicks on Saturday.

    Not too much progress for Carter still. He will be a standard league player when he returns and is worth waiting on if you have an IL spot, or if you can just ride him out on the bench for a few more games. The competition for center minutes remains weak in Chicago.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina is probable heading into Saturday's contest vs. the Bulls, as he continues to recover from a sore groin.

    Ntilikina is the backup point guard for the Knicks, and he will have a difficult time entering the discussion past deep leagues in these circumstances. Dennis Smith Jr. (concussion protocol) has been ruled out, which will give Ntilikina a few more minutes for this game.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson is probable to meet the Bulls on Saturday due to back spasms.

    Gibson gets the starts when he's healthy but he only picks up minutes in the teens. He's just a deep league center and nothing more.

  • Danny Green
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Danny Green is dealing with right hip soreness that has him doubtful to take the floor vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Green has lived up to his name this season, and remains one of the most inconsistent options in standard leagues. He's a steadier option for a 16-team league, but he's still worth a stream if you are fishing for 3-pointers along with some steals and blocks. While Green is out the Lakers will send more minutes towards Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Dealing with a right ankle sprain, Jordan Poole is questionable to face the Suns on Saturday.

    With Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) set to return in the not too distant future Poole's value is going to take a hit in short order. Everyone's value on the Warriors is in flux beyond Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green (when active), so it is hard to count on anybody for more than a couple games. If you have Poole in standard leagues you can wait to see when Curry returns, but don't be afraid to dump him for a hot hand with better long-term prospects.
