• Lonnie Walker IV - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Lonnie Walker made his G-League debut on Friday and scored 14 points with two assists, two rebounds and one block in 19 minutes.

    Walker has been out since the beginning of October after tearing his meniscus for the second time. He said he will be back with the Spurs "very soon" and he should be part of the rotation as they are thin in the backcourt. His college and Summer League stats suggest he is not someone to get overly excited about in fantasy, given it's his first season. The 18th overall pick of 2018 can be left on the waiver wire as of now.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is questionable to play the Kings on Saturday.

    If Johnson can’t go, De’Anthony Melton should get another start. Melton has a high steals rate, but his upside is severely capped starting alongside usage monster Devin Booker.

  • Josh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns

    Josh Jackson (ankle sprain) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Kings.

    It’s pretty amazing that Jackson hasn’t already been ruled out but it wouldn’t be surprising if he ended up missing this one. Mikal Bridges and Troy Daniels would be the prime beneficiaries with Bridges being the preferred play by far.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward missed Friday's practice as he continues to go through concussion protocol and he may return on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

    The entire season from Hayward has been a total headache, with injury inconsistency, low minutes and generally very disappointing production. He may come back to play this weekend, but it seems difficult to trust him at this crucial time.

  • Josh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Josh Hart will sit out against the Nets on Friday with a right knee issue.

    Now that the Lakers have virtually nothing to play for, there's no reason for Hart to push it and get on the court at risk of aggravation. Still, LeBron James plans to return for this one, so the upticks for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or Reggie Bullock may be short-lived.

  • LeBron James - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James will play in Friday's game against the Nets.

    The trainwreck season continues for the Lakers, but at least for this one James will suit up and pile up stats. It dings a few of the Lakers' role players, maybe cutting into the Alex Caruso hype train.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Jazz with his rotator cuff strain.

    Porter not being available is kind of expected at this point. It's very inconvenient right now for fantasy owners but this is unfortunately how it's going to go the rest of the way. He wants to play even though the Bulls 2018-19 season was over in like… 2017. We'll see if he can get into a game soon.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn is questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz with a back issue.

    This would be a big blow for Dunn owners in the home stretch if he was hobbled for the stretch run here. There's a lot of upside in Dunn's profile and he'll at least be in the top-100 conversation if he's healthy and on the floor.

  • Zach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine will be a game-time call on Saturday night against the Jazz with a right thigh contusion.

    LaVine plans to warm up and see how he feels before making a final call on his status. If he plays, he should definitely be in all lineups.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (right thigh) and Rodney McGruder (knee) will miss Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Winslow has been a pleasant surprise this year providing mid-round value over the last few weeks… when he has been on the court. He's probably sitting on waiver wires right now at this crucial time, and hopefully McGruder has been sitting on the waiver wire for longer than that.

  • Bam Adebayo - C/F - Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo (bruised right hip) will play in Friday night's game against the Bucks.

    This is good news for fantasy owners who have reaped the benefits of a mid-round asset recently. Deploy him as usual if you have been.
