• Khris Middleton
    SG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton played just 16 minutes in the Bucks final game on Wednesday, scoring four points.

    Middleton has had a fantastic season for the Bucks, finishing as a borderline second-round asset on the back of solid production across the board. He managed to play in all 82 games and was the most consistent Buck this season. Expect him to be about the same going forward into next season but his value is tied in some respects to the emergence of Jabari Parker and whether the two can coexist and produce at high levels over a full season, which is something we have not seen over the last few years..

  • Jake Layman

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) will not play on Monday.

    This is the ninth consecutive game that he has missed. The injury has overshadowed a solid start to the season for Layman.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (left thumb sprain) is considered questionable to face the Warriors on Monday.

    Wiggins played 29 minutes on Sunday, but it's uncertain whether he can play two games in two days. At 24.6 points per game, he is on pace for the best scoring average of his career. Keita Bates-Diop could see more action if Wiggins does not suit up.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (left ankle soreness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game.

    Teague got onto the court for 24 minutes on Sunday against the Lakers. He scored 12 points including two triples. Shabazz Napier could be in line for more minutes if Teague cannot play.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl Anthony-Towns (right knee tendinopathy) is considered probable for Monday against the Suns.

    Towns was able to play on Sunday and scored 19 points but only made 1-of-7 attempts from behind the arc. It's positive news that he is expected to play the second half of a back-to-back.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) is probable for Monday's game.

    Napier had a nice game on Sunday despite only playing for 15 minutes. His role prevents him from being particularly valuable in standard leagues, though.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Updating a previous report, Kawhi Leonard (knee maintenance) has officially been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    This was the expectation all along. The only surprise here is how many rhetorical acrobatics the Clippers have performed with his injury designation, from "load management" to "knee soreness" and now "knee maintenance." The truth is that the Clippers' brass acquired Kawhi Leonard's services on the condition that he alone could dictate his availability for regular season games and Kawhi has understandably taken advantage of his leverage. He's annoying to have in fantasy, but he's earned the right as one of the best players on the planet and he hasn't even met his upside this season, sporting a career-low 44% field goal shooting. When that number returns to the mean, watch out.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant will play on Monday after missing over a week with back spasms.

    Morant has returned quickly given his initial week-to-week status and will not be on a minutes limit. Tyus Jones carries minimal fantasy value as long as Morant stays healthy.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to illness.

    Grayson Allen and Solomon Hill would need to step up if Crowder is unable to play. Crowder has averaged 10.9 points and 5.8 rebounds so far this season, but his value could dip when Kyle Anderson is ready to return.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley has a chance to return from his thumb fracture on Monday against the Rockets and is being listed as questionable.

    He's been participating in full contact practice for a week now and the "questionable " has followed him around for each of the last two games, which he missed. This would not be an ideal matchup for Bagley to return, but there's a chance. Upon his return, he'll immediately benefit from the usage vacuum created by De'Aaron Fox's injury, but he'll also lose center minutes to an emergent Richaun Holmes. And deservedly so, as Holmes has been the Kings' most valuable player during the past injury-riddled month. Check back in closer to tipoff for a final update on his status.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (right knee contusion) is being listed as questionable against the Bulls on Monday after leaving Sunday's game.

    Even if he doesn't play tonight, it's still a relief to hear that the injury wasn't serious after he was ruled out within minutes of suffering the injury on Sunday. VanVleet has been a top 10 contributor in both assists and steals this season, two categories which don't figure to be negatively impacted by the Lowry's return to the lineup given their symbiotic roles on this Raptors squad. His current top 20 pace isn't sustainable, but he's positioning himself as one of the best draft day steals of the season.
