• Lauri Markkanen
    F, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen led the Bulls in scoring in their 106-117 loss to the Bucks on Monday with 26 points on 11-of-22 shooting while hauling in 12 rebounds, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Markkanen is arguably the best player on the Bulls' roster and he's been the best fantasy player over the past month. In the last 12 games he's averaged 24.3 points, 2.6 triples, 13.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 0.6 steals on .462 shooting. The rebounding numbers have really bolstered his value and it was actually one of the knocks on his game coming out of college.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors will start McCaw, OG, Chris Boucher, Malcolm Miller and Terence Davis for Sunday's preseason game versus the Wizards.

    The Raptors are resting all of their stars and the bench mob should get solid run tonight. All of the starters are viable DFS options for tonight's slate.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Bucks will rest Robin Lopez and Pat Connaughton during Sunday's preseason game versus the Wizards.

    Lopez is in line to back up his brother Brook Lopez, but could get some run along side of him as well. Neither Connaughton or Robin Lopez are worth drafting in standard leagues.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) will not play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Wizards.

    The MVP will get the night off the rest up. Ersan Ilyasova will start in his place and become a viable DFS play.

  • Justin Robinson
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Justin Robinson will start in place of Ish Smith during Sunday's preseason game versus the Bucks.

    Smith was questionable coming into the night, but with Isaiah Thomas sidelined the team would rather be cautious. Robinson is worth a flier in DFS.

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Romeo Langford (right knee sprain) will not return to Sunday's preseason game versus the Cavs.

    The is a drawback for Langford as he has been sidelined during most of the preseason with left knee and left groin soreness. There is no word on the severity of the sprain just yet and he may have to wait until tomorrow for an MRI.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) will not play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    It seems that Lowry is still not ready, but the upgraded questionable tag earlier in the day shows that he is well on his way. Lowry will be looking to absorb some of the usage left behind from Kawhi Leonard and should be considered questionable going forward.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors will rest Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell for Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    Kyle Lowry will also sit this one out as his surgically repaired thumb needs a little more time. The reserves will get plenty of run and will be they are all in play as DFS candidates.

  • Terrence Ross
    SG, Orlando Magic

    Terrence Ross (right ankle sprain) will miss Sunday's preseason game versus the Sixers.

    He will join Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier on the bench as the three look to get healthy by the regular season. Ross is expecting to have a big role off of the bench this season and could provide valuable scoring and three-point attempts in deeper leagues.

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikole Vucevic (left ankle sprain) will not play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Sixers.

    This will be the second straight game Vucevic will miss due to the ankle sprain, but it is still not believed to be serious. Look for Mo Bamba and Khem Birch to step up in his absence.

  • Trey Lyles
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    Trey Lyles will start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) during Sunday's preseason game versus the Pelicans.

    Lyles is slated to back up Aldridge during the regular season and does not provide much season long fantasy value, although he does make an interesting DFS play today.
