• Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns facilitated the Wolves' offense on Sunday with a team-high seven assists, which he complemented with 22 points (6-of-10 shooting), six rebounds, three triples and three blocks.

    The Wolves were without both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose, so KAT flashed some of his versatility as a playmaker tonight. At 22 years young Towns is still raising the roof of his fantasy-friendly game, so don't be surprised him to test the limits of his already impressive statistical resume.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum (left ankle sprain) was spotted going through a shootaround after Tuesday's practice.

    McCollum has missed the past two games because of the ankle injury but seems to be on the right track to return to game action. The Blazers' next game is on Thursday against the Mavs. Check back in closer to tip-off to see what McCollum's status is.

  • Zach Collins
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Zach Collins (labrum surgery) participated in solo workouts with both arms while also getting some shots up during Tuesday's practice.

    Collins came into the season with some hype as the unquestioned starting PF for the Blazers before injuring his shoulder in the third game of the season. Collins is trying to get back before the season ends, but even if he does, there will be a few more options to battle minutes for than there was the last time he was healthy. He isn't likely to have an impact in fantasy leagues this season.

  • Jusuf Nurkic
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Jusuf Nurkic went through a full practice on Wednesday, according to teammate Damian Lillard.

    Lillard said that Nurkic went dull speed and was took contact during the practice. While Nurkic isn't expected to return to game action until at least March, he remains a quality stash for teams that have an open IR spot or can afford it. He will surely have restrictions when he does return, but he has shown to be an across the board contributor as evidenced by the 15.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steal he averaged in 72 games during the 2018-19 NBA season.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Nicolas Claxton (shoulder) is considered questionable for Thursday's game.

    Claxton was injured when Giannis Antetokounmpo set a screen during the game on Saturday. He managed to play well on Monday but is apparently still dealing with the issue. If Claxton and DeAndre Jordan cannot play, Jarrett Allen will have a lot of responsibility.

  • Alfonzo McKinnie
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Alfonzo McKinnie is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Cavs on Thursday.

    McKinnie has played solid bench minutes over the last month. He's not a recommended fantasy play but does provide some rebounding.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (hamstring) is considered probable for Thursday's game.

    Irving missed Monday's contest but is likely to face the Lakers. He has been a force during his first 15 games with the Nets. So far, Irving is averaging 26.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan (dislocated right middle finger) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

    Jordan was injured a week ago. It's currently up in the air whether Jordan will face the Lakers. He can provide rebounds and blocks when healthy but has been limited to a part-time role.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

    He was previously considered probable. E'Twaun Moore could be in line for more action if Redick doesn't play.

  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson (right knee surgery) is considered probable for Wednesday's game.

    Williamson should make his season debut against the Spurs as initially expected. Expect the Pelicans to ease him along, but this is a positive development for owners who have held onto him.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

    Favors and teammate Jahlil Okafor have both been upgraded to probable. This news should push Jaxson Hayes and Nicolo Melli back to lesser roles.
