• Enes Kanter
    C, New York Knicks

    Enes Kanter didn't seem happy about being demoted on Friday against the Warriors.

    Kanter, who started every game last season, did not offer much when asked about his demotion after the game saying, "Coach said he wants me to lead the second unit." Then he followed up the next two questions by repeating that he is going to lead the second unit. Mitchell Robinson on his promotion said, "It shocked me out of nowhere." Even if Kanter will continue to lead the second unit, fantasy owners shouldn't panic as he should still be able to log at least 25 minutes on most nights. He only needed 25.8 minutes last year when he averaged a double-double for top-50 standard league value.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin (concussion protocol, nasal surgery) is not on the injury report for Thursday.

    Martin suffered a broken nose and missed three games, but the All-Star break came at the right time and minimized his absence. With the Hornets opening up minutes for younger players down the stretch, Martin is someone to keep an eye on in deeper formats.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (left leg contusion) is questionable to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

    Gordon missed the two games leading into the All-Star break, so hopefully he's able to suit up tomorrow. He has a shot at late-round value in Houston's new all-wing rotation, though you can steer clear unless you need points and threes.

  • Alex Len
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is questionable ahead of Thursday's game.

    Len has been out since late January and perhaps the All-Star break was enough to get him ready to play. He'll have a chance at minutes while Richaun Holmes is still sidelined, but it would take a surprising workload to make Len a priority add in even 16-team leagues.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (left hamstring strain) is not on the injury report for Thursday's game.

    Hill had missed the previous seven games before the All-Star break but should be good to go tomorrow. He's a deep-league option and is the rare point guard who is actually a boost to efficiency.

  • Kyle Korver
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Kyle Korver (back soreness) will not play on Thursday.

    Korver's been on and off the injury report all year long and isn't a fantasy option in just about any format.

  • John Beilein
    , Cleveland Cavaliers

    John Beilein has officially resigned as the head coach of the Cavs.

    Beilein is walking away just months into a five-year deal, with his tumultuous tenure making it painfully clear that the Cavs have plenty of problems to work through. He had serious troubles connecting to the Cavs, with squabbles erupting all over the place, even down to the terminology of his playbook. Beilein has been given a different role in the organization while JB Bickerstaff will take over the coaching job.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns (left wrist) did not practice on Wednesday and will miss some upcoming games.

    No word on how long Towns will be out, but fantasy GMs have to be sweating after KAT already missed a big chunk of time with a nebulous injury earlier in the year. Naz Reid and James Johnson split the center minutes when Towns sat before the All-Star break and look to be your pickups of choice. There's no guarantee that either holds 12-team value but both are worthwhile fliers, with Johnson's game more well-rounded.

  • Skal Labissiere
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks will re-evaluate Skal Labissiere (left knee articular cartilage lesion) in two weeks.

    Labissiere has been sidelined since the end of January and while he doesn't figure to play a huge role in Atlanta, this still isn't great news for a player that's looked like a legitimate rotation option this season. It's safe to leave Skal on the wire in just about all leagues.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Clint Capela (right heel) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Earlier today Lloyd Pierce said that Capela would be out "weeks" so this just gives a slightly better timeline for us to work with. It sounds like the Hawks will take it easy on a player that they view as a long-term contributor, and this update gives Dewayne Dedmon at least two more weeks of fantasy viability.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder impingement) expects to make his Kings debut on Thursday.

    If Parker plays against the Grizzlies tomorrow, it'll mark his first game since January 2. He should factor into the forward mix in Sacramento but is not a standard-league option until we see what his typical workload might look like.
