• Lance Stephenson - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lance Stephenson (left second toe sprain) is questionable to face the Raptors on Thursday.

    Stephenson has missed the last two games but has been dealing with toe issues for over a week now. His absence doesn't change much for fantasy owners, as he was on the bottom of the pecking order among the Lakers' wing/guard types anyway.

  • Kenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Kenneth Faried (sore left knee) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Outside of deeper leagues, Faried likely won't get enough run while Clint Capela is healthy to make an impart.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will get another start for Kyle Lowry (sprained right ankle) on Friday vs. the Thunder.

    VanVleet almost always produces in a big way when starting and he’ll continue to do so until Lowry returns which is expected “sometime next week” according to coach Nick Nurse.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (head) will play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

    Love banged his head on Wednesday and left the game for good early in the third quarter but he has avoided any concussion symptoms so make sure he's in your lineup.

  • Joakim Noah - PF/C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (knee) is not expected to play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Since it’s the front end of a back-to-back set for the Grizzlies, there’s no reason to push their old vets like Noah and Mike Conley. Ivan Rabb and Bruno Coboclo have a chance to step up but neither has been very consistent and it doesn’t look like Noah will be out for long.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) and Kadeem Allen (illness) will both be available to play on Friday.

    Neither is a particularly inspired play playing distributor behind Emmanuel Mudiay and both can be left on the wire.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyler Dorsey will get the start for Mike Conley (general soreness) on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Mike Conley continues to miss one of every back-to-back set and there’s also one next week during a four-game week for the Grizzlies. Dorsey isn’t the most attractive play though Delon Wright should have a nice game and should be added in standard leagues.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (right ankle sprain) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    That means Mario Hezonja is once again set up for big minutes. He’s been a standard league value over the last month but with only two games next week, he’s not the best play after Sunday’s game vs. the Clippers.

  • Stephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors

    Steph Curry (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Mavs.

    This is the front end of a back-to-back so we’re not surprised Curry is getting a day off in this five-game week. He should be out there for Sunday’s game. With Shaun Livingston and Andrew Bogut also out for rest, Quinn Cook and Andre Iguodala will get more run, though neither is a long-term play.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward (concussion protocol) will miss Saturday’s game vs. the Hornets.

    With Hayward out, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will get more shots though both are likely owned in standard leagues.

  • Al Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Al Horford (knee) and Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets.

    This is more of a maintenance day for Horford as the Celtics have already discussed giving their vets some rest before the playoffs start and Saturday is the front end of a back-to-back set. Daniel Theis will have an opportunity to produce with both of the big men out.
