• Luc Mbah a Moute
    F, Los Angeles Clippers

    Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) will remain out on Wednesday.

    There's no update on when Mbah a Moute will return to action, and the fact that he's missed multiple weeks means he won't just be appearing in the rotation on a random night without going through some practices. He's not a fantasy option.

Fantasy News

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow will miss Thursday's game as he remains in concussion protocol.

    Winslow suffered the head injury on November 5 and there is no timetable for his return. It has been a frustrating start to the season for his owners.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine had treatment for his ankle on Wednesday but is expected to face the Bucks on Thursday.

    LaVine rolled the ankle on Tuesday but remained in the game. It's positive news that he is on schedule to play. LaVine is averaging 20.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.2 assists so far.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter will not play on Thursday due to a left foot sprain.

    Porter last played on November 6. However, Jim Boylen said that he has shown some improvement. Hopefully, he won't miss much more time.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets are expected to sign free agent Iman Shumpert.

    Shumpert is unlikely to have a major role, but it's worth noting that Caris LeVert has been visiting thumb specialists. In any case, the Nets had a roster spot available until mid-December when Wilson Chandler returns from suspension.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro is questionable to face the Cavs on Thursday due to illness.

    Goran Dragic seems to be fighting a similar sickness. Justise Winslow definitely won't play, so the Heat could be very thin if Herro and Dragic are unavailable. Duncan Robinson should play even more heavily in that scenario.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic is considered questionable to play on Thursday due to illness.

    Justise Winslow has already been ruled out with a concussion. Dragic has been a bright spot for the Heat so far, but we'll have to see if he is able to face the Cavs.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets have sent Caris LeVert to specialists due to fears that he could have ligament damage in his right thumb.

    Nothing is certain at the moment, but this is worrying news for LeVert's fantasy owners. For the moment, expect Garrett Temple to stay in the starting lineup.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Omari Spellman is questionable to face the Lakers on Wednesday due to a left ankle sprain.

    This is an upgrade from Spellman's prior status of doubtful. However, Draymond Green's return has cut into his minimal fantasy value.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas underwent foot surgery and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

    Thomas can begin rehab right away, but he will likely be out for two months or more. Even when healthy, Thomas has not been fantasy relevant.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball will not face the Clippers on Thursday due to his right adductor strain.

    This isn't surprising, as he was not expected to return prior to Saturday. Kenrich Williams should remain in the starting lineup for now.
