• Kevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (personal) will not play on Wednesday against the Knicks.

    It's a bummer for Huerter's owners as he was just starting to see big minutes, albeit with Taurean Prince (ankle) out of the lineup. Personal means he should be back soon, but will probably hover around 20 mpg with Prince back which isn't good enough for standard leagues. Keep an eye on him though as the season rolls along.

Fantasy News

  • Kosta Koufos - C - Sacramento Kings

    Kosta Koufos will be out again in Friday's game.

    This is more of the same for Koufos. He has only played seven games this season and is barely a fantasy asset when he is on the court playing only 10-15 minutes.

  • Derrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. is probable for Friday night's game.

    Jones will likely return for this contest but after a hot start to the season he has really fallen off the radar. Wayne Ellington and Rodney McGruder are the hot wings off the bench that have flashed, so Jones is best left on the wire for now.

  • John Henson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    John Henson will miss at least 12 weeks with a torn ligament in his left wrist as of Friday's update.

    It's time for Thon Maker, people. This will put Henson out until at least mid-February, so we could see an unsightly amount of Maker and a Bucks team that might struggle against bigger squads. Keep an eye on Maker but there probably isn't much there for now.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo suffered a quad strain in Wednesday's game and he will be held out for the next three contests.

    DiVincenzo dealt with a quad injury earlier in the season and has been up and down throughout. He isn't a big fantasy factor at this point in under 20 minutes per contest, and his de facto role replacement in Tony Snell is even less of a factor.

  • John Henson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Per a report on Friday, John Henson will undergo wrist surgery and is out indefinitely.

    This is a bigger blow to the Bucks rotation and center depth more than it is for fantasy purposes. Henson has been a useful fantasy option in the past because of his shot-blocking prowess. With Brook Lopez playing well, Henson just hadn't gotten the run to be successful (13.5 minutes per game). Ersan Ilyasova and Thon Maker are probably the beneficiaries for now.

  • CJ Miles - F/G - Toronto Raptors

    C.J. Miles (right adductor) will not play in Friday's game versus the Celtics.

    Miles was originally slated to miss the entire road trip, but now there is a chance he could return for half of it. In his absence look for OG Anunoby and Delon Wright to benefit the most.

  • Elfrid Payton - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Elfrid Payton (ankle) participated in the team's morning shootaround, but is still be considered questionable for Friday's game versus the Knicks.

    If Payton were to return it would likely be on a minutes limit and Jrue Holiday would shift back to shooting guard. Payton was a game-time call on Wednesday so things are trending in the right direction for a return.

  • Danny Green - G/F - Toronto Raptors

    Danny Green (back) is expected to play in Friday's game versus the Celtics.

    Green left Wednesday's game experiencing lower back tightness after a hard fall. He looks to be good to go for tonight's game and is expected to start.

  • Serge Ibaka - F/C - Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (knee) will play in Friday's game versus the Celtics.

    Ibaka should slide right back into starting lineup and matchup against Al Horford, while Jonas Valanciunas reverts back to his role off of the bench.

  • Rajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (hand) has had successful surgery following breaking his hand during Wednesday's game and is expected to miss four to five weeks.

    Lonzo Ball is expected to be the biggest beneficiary as he will likely see 30-plus minutes regularly with Rondo out. Josh Hart is also a name to keep an eye out for in deeper leagues as he is widely available on waivers and should see an expanded role.
