• Kemba Walker posted an all-around line with 20 points, five rebounds, six assists, four steals, four treys and just one turnover as the Hornets squeaked by the Magic on Wednesday.

    Walker was an abysmal 6-of-19 from the floor, which put a blemish on what was otherwise a very nice performance. He is well-entrenched as an elite fantasy asset and there is no reason to expect something different the rest of the way. Deploy him without hesitation.

  • Wilson Chandler
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    Wilson Chandler has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game vs. the Wizards due to personal reasons.

    Chandler has averaged 21.3 minutes per game since returning from a 25-game suspension to start the season. He is only worth a roster spot in 18-team leagues or deeper at this time. Taurean Prince and Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot will likely see additional minutes with Chandler out.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (personal reasons) will make his return to action for Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Wolves.

    Butler will return after a two-game absence and he should be locked in across formats as he has proven to be a 2nd/1st round talent in 8/9-cat formats. Kendrick Nunn, Goran Dragić and Jae Crowder will lose some value with Butler’s return to the lineup.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    The Athletic is reporting that Mike Conley will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics while Joe Ingles will head to the bench.

    It was previously reported that Royce O'Neale would be replacing Mike Conley in the starting lineup on Wednesday but it appears as if Conley is not being sent to the bench unit. Instead, the Jazz are choosing to have Joe Ingles come off the bench. The Jazz are looking to shake things up after losing three straight and they are definitely a team worth watching from a fantasy perspective. Continue to monitor this situation to see how the rotations shake out going forward.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Head coach Steve Kerr told Nick Friedell of ESPN that he would like to get Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) more scrimmage time and that "there is a chance" that he will not play against the Wizards on Sunday.

    It was reported on Tuesday that Curry would make his return to the court on Sunday. Curry should be stashed across formats at this point in the hopes that he can help teams in head-to-head formats in their playoffs. Continue to monitor as we will learn more over the coming days. For now, Curry can be considered somewhere between probable and questionable for Sunday's contest.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) scrimmaged with the team on Wednesday and is officially listed as probable ahead of Thursday's matchup vs. the Lakers.

    It was previously reported that Green is expected to play in Thursday's game so the probable tag reaffirms the initial report. Ky Bowman, Eric Paschall and Juan Toscano-Anderson will all lose minutes when Green returns to the court.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday as he continues to nurse a sore left knee.

    Walker will now miss his fourth consecutive game since playing in the All-Star game. In his absence, Brad Wanamaker and Romeo Langford have seen additional opportunity handling the ball but neither are standard league streamers. Marcus Smart and the rest of the starters will benefit the most while Kemba is sidelined. Walker's next opportunity to play will be on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the G League on Wednesday.

    Alexander-Walker hasn't been in the rotation for the Pelicans of late, so he's an afterthought in fantasy circles.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    It sounds like this will be the new normal for the Jazz going forward. Mike Conley will slide to the bench but should still play a prominent role. O'Neale will be a nice source of steals with more minutes coming, but we'll have to see if the offense follows. Joe Ingles could see an uptick in assists as part of this new lineup configuration.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley is expected to come off the bench starting on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Royce O'Neale. Conley will still play significant minutes, but he has disappointed this season while O'Neale is renowned for his defense.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will not travel with the Blazers to face the Pacers on Thursday.

    This isn't a major surprise, as he was already expected to miss the next couple of games. However, he could rejoin the team later on the road trip. C.J. McCollum owners should have some big numbers on the way while Lillard is out.
