• Kentavious Caldwell-Pope fits the Knicks’ need for an elite perimeter defender and could be a target for them after this season.

    Unfortunately, the demand for those type of wings is widespread throughout the league as the February 8th trade deadline approaches. Upgrading is more feasible during the summer, when Caldwell-Pope and other wings will hit the open market. KCP is returning top-70 value for the season although legal troubles and injuries have caused him to miss several games. Consider this another trade rumor with no legs while he recovers from an Achilles issue. 

Fantasy News

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) is expected to play in Saturday's matchup vs. the Mavericks.

    He missed Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers and the Raps still managed come out with the win. It's great news that he'll be back on the court tonight and his fantasy owners should be pleased to be getting back a top-35 guy. Fire him up in all lineups, sit back and relax.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley suffered a hairline fracture in his lower right leg and will be re-evaulated in 1-2 weeks.

    Bradley had been dealing with a slew of injuries lately and an MRI taken Thursday night revealed the fracture. He was having a career-resurgence with the Lakers, playing 27.4 minutes per night which is third to only LeBron James and Anthony Davis. With him sidelined, expect Alex Caruso to maybe earn a look with the starters which makes him an interesting pickup in deeper leagues.

  • Dwayne Bacon
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Dwayne Bacon (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Detroit

    He sat out on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies and the Hornets said that he'll test his knee pregame to determine his availability for this one. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Neither Blake Griffin (left hamstring, knee) nor Derrick Rose (right hamstring tightness) is not on the injury report for Friday.

    Both Griffin and Rose missed Tuesday's game after playing on Monday, which was likely a load management situation. Both are good to get back into lineups.

  • Andre Roberson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Andre Roberson (left knee) will remain sidelined on Friday.

    Roberson went through a non-contact practice last week but there haven't been any more updates. Consider him out indefinitely.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon (right knee sprain) was able to practice on Thursday and Luke Walton thinks that he'll probably play on Friday.

    Dedmon remains questionable on the official injury report, but it seems like he'll be good to go if you need him. So far he's logging just 16.2 mpg this season and is only a deep-league value.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap had a throwback game on Thursday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two triples.

    Millsap continues to turn back the clock with his performances and he did so in only 27 minutes tonight. This is all with Jerami Grant (12 points, six rebounds, two blocks and two triples) also providing value. Mason Plumlee (10 points, seven rebounds and two assists) was actually vital in tonight's double-digit deficit comeback. The main guy to own right now is Millsap, but beware of his mileage.

  • Taurean Prince
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Tauren Prince had an inefficient night shooting the ball on Thursday, going 5-for-15 from the floor on his way to 12 points with eight rebounds, two assists and two triples.

    Prince should be able to churn out some standard-league value while Caris LeVert (thumb) is sidelined for the next few weeks. He won't be as good as he was on the Hawks. but the points, triples and steals are still there and he's a top-90 player so far this year.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Harris was held to only nine points tonight and only attempted three shots from deep. He should be much better on the next one and while he won't light up the scoreboard, the triples should come at a higher rate.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets to their 101-93 win over the Nets on Thursday with 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

    Jokic's line is still under what he usually delivers and again, we're preaching patience here. He always takes a bit of time to warm up and there's no doubt in our minds that he'll be due for a top-15 finish.
