• Larry Nance Jr.
    F, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. (bruised rib) will not play on Saturday against the Mavs.

    Nance was expected to participate in this morning's shootaround but he still isn't cleared to play. It does seem like he's getting closer, however, so if you've held onto Nance through this three-game absence we should be nearing a return.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Alvin Gentry said that Derrick Favors (personal) practiced with the team on Tuesday and is expected to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Favors hasn't played since November 16 due to both an injury and tending to a personal matter. Favors' pending return isn't great news for Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor, as the veteran should resume his role as the starting C. Favors will get eased back into the rotation initially, but he is worth a look in standard leagues if he was dropped while he was out.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (illness) has been removed from the injury report and is available to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Len has started to turn it on over the past two weeks with top-40/65 value in 9/8 cat leagues. John Collins' return will put a dent into Len's newfound value, but there is still some value to be had until then. The Hawks play a back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday as part of a four-game week.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    With Richardson looking likely to return on Tuesday, Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle will take a big hit in their value. Richardson should return to fantasy lineups when he officially gets the green light.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Rick Carlisle said that Delon Wright (right adductor strain) will probably be listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Pistons in Mexico City.

    Wright is looking likely to miss another game. Seth Curry, J.J. Barea, and Jalen Brunson should all receive extra minutes off the bench if Wright can't go. None of the trio is more than a streaming play.

  • Tyson Chandler
    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler (illness) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    The veteran is long past the days of fantasy relevance.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (illness) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    With Rivers missing another game we should see both Ben McLemore and Danuel House reach the thirty-minute mark, with Chris Clemons and Gary Clark seeing extra minutes if the score turns lopsided. Rivers' next chance to return will be on Friday against the Magic.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (illness) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game with the Heat.

    Hunter is also dealing with a dislocated finger but he was able to play through it on Sunday. With Kevin Huerter back, Hunter's role is a little more diminished than it was in the previous few weeks. Hunter's poor shooting and lack of defensive numbers have kept him off of the standard league radar.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo and KZ Okpala have been upgraded to probable for tonight’s game against the Hawks.

    Adebayo has been bothered by the groin issue recently but he seems to be fine playing through it. He has been a beast this season returning top-50 value and validating the Heat’s decision to make him the starter.

  • Kent Bazemore
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Terry Stotts said this morning that Kent Bazemore will get his second straight start on Tuesday night when the Blazers face the Knicks.

    Bazemore is the next man up after Rodney Hood went down with an Achilles injury and he should be added in all formats. He logged 36 minutes in his first start on Sunday.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    As expected, Thunder veterans Chris Paul, Steven Adams, and Danilo Gallinari are all available, according to Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer.

    Oklahoma City seems willing to take on bad contracts and unwanted money, according to O’Connor, who hears that getting out of tax territory isn’t necessarily a priority for the club. Adams and CP3 are likely to be heavily shopped and a potential trade wouldn’t really affect their value. Gallinari meanwhile is on an expiring deal and has once again exceeded expectations so far this season, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to try and sell high on him.
