• Kevin Love
    F/C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love was limited to 10 points and eight rebounds on Thursday night against the Magic as he got into foul trouble early in the second half.

    The Cavs were getting their doors blown off in this one, so Love caught an early shower. It's unfortunate timing in fantasy playoffs for an outing like this, but the Cavaliers are in complete shutdown mode.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanovic (right knee contusion) is available to play on Monday vs. the Rockets

    Bogdanovic has drawn the probable tag a lot lately, but in the last few weeks, he's only missed last Wednesday's game. Unfortunately, the injury may be hampering him as his production has slipped over this time span. He's worth holding, but if you have the choice to bench him, you might want to watch for a big game before getting him back into your lineup.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley (right thumb fracture) will not play on Monday in Houston.

    Bagley is certainly close, based on his questionable tags. His next chance to play is on Wednesday against the Thunder.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    According to Shams Charania, "multiple teams" are starting to look at Marvin Williams' trade availability.

    It's not surprising given his quality stretch four play in a low-maintenance role, and the Hornets would be happy to move him for any futures. He's got potential to carve out late-round numbers in 9-cat leagues but it would take a perfect destination for that to happen.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left calf strain) will play on Monday but the Suns plan on "easing him back in in a smart way."

    That means there's likely to be a minutes restriction, which makes it tough to trust Baynes, Frank Kaminsky or Cheick Diallo tonight with the potential that everyone gets 14-20 minutes. Baynes is the clearest start of the bunch, while Diallo is the easiest to bench.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph (back) is in the starting lineup on Monday night.

    Joseph has been a regular on the injury report due to back soreness of late but hasn't missed any games. Deep-league players can fire CoJo up for his low-end guard numbers.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Shams Charania is reporting that Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) will be sidelined for at least another week.

    Thomas has struggled to produce worthwhile fantasy numbers since moving into the starting lineup, and he can be cut loose in most 12-team leagues. Ish Smith offers some short-term stability as an assists specialist with upside in the other categories now that he's not in a timeshare. Don't expect too much either way.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    KZ Okpala (left Achilles) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Okpala has been out since late October, and there's probably no room for him in the rotation anyway. He's not on the radar but this upgrade is good news.

  • Dion Waiters
    SG, Miami Heat

    Dion Waiters (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Hawks.

    Waiters has yet to play this season and even if he's cleared there's no guarantee that he sees the court.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (right groin strain) will not play on Tuesday night.

    Dragic is getting ruled out a full day in advance, which isn't a great sign. He remains worth hanging onto in 8-cat leagues but is a lot closer to the cut line in 9-cat, where that decision will be made based on your need for immediate production.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (back strain) has been ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Winslow just can't seem to stay healthy this season and is not a must-hold guy in 12-team leagues. A late-round player even when healthy, most managers can probably get more use out of a streaming slot or hot free agent.
