• Jeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges will draw the start on Friday vs. the Wizards while Jeremy Lamb will come off the bench.

    This came out of nowhere and we’ll have to see if it’s a short term move or one that sticks.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (rest) is out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    With Gordon out there will be roughly an additional 31 mpg to go around. Danuel House, who has been on fire since returning to the Rockets, could slide into a starting role and is worth a look as a streamer. Gerald Green, Iman Shumpert and Austin Rivers will see an increse in playing time with Gordon out as well.

  • Kenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Kenneth Faried (sore left knee) is questionable to play the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Faried lost a lot of value since Clint Capela returned, as he was pushed to a bench role and playing just 17.2 mpg over the past two weeks. He is more of a deep-league big man than standard contributor in this role. If Faried can't go on Wednesday, P.J. Tucker, Danuel House and Gary Clark would see some extra run.

  • Avery Bradley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Avery Bradley (right shin contusion) will rest and be re-evaluated in one week.

    Bradley has been a revelation since joining the Grizzlies, and his absence will open up roughly 32 mpg. Delon Wright, who was already playing 27.6 mpg over the last month, becomes a must-play guy as the likely replacement in the starting lineup. Tyler Dorsey, Justin Holiday and Chandler Parsons should all see extra minutes in Bradley's absence as well.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) will miss Thursday's game vs. The Wolves.

    Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't been getting much run lately, but his absence will open up a few additional minutes for Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon, who are worth a look as streamers.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry made the trip to Oklahoma hoping he could play, but his ankle is not ready and he will miss tonight’s game.

    Interestingly enough, the Raptors gave him the option to stay behind in Toronto but he declined saying he wanted to play. Fred VanVleet has been impressive upon his return from a thumb injury and he will start again tonight. He should be owned in all leagues as long as Lowry remains sidelined.

  • Duncan Robinson - F - Miami Heat

    Duncan Robinson and Yante Maten have both rejoined the Heat for tonight's game against the Spurs.

    Both of them will provide emergency depth but they are not a consideration for fantasy leagues.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - New Orleans Pelicans

    Anthony Davis is not with the team this morning for shootaround and he will not play tonight against the Magic.

    AD apparently had to return home on an excused absence to attend to a family matter. Jahlil Okafor or Cheick Diallo should get the start but it will once again be the Julius Randle show for New Orleans.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Brad Stevens said that he is hoping that Gordon Hayward can join the team in Charlotte after doing a treadmill workout yesterday and responding well today.

    Hayward has already been ruled out for tonight’s game against the Sixers. He has been playing well lately but hopefully owners have moved on from him as injuries have derailed his season. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will carry a bigger offensive burden on Wednesday.

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving said he will definitely take some games off before the playoffs start since the team's focus is just on getting in the postseason and not claiming the highest possible seeding.

    The Celtics said that they plan to take the same approach with Al Horford as well as the team is prioritizing health over a top seed in the East. Boston has an upcoming back-to-back set this weekend and even though nothing is official yet, it’s pretty possible that Kyrie sits out in one of those games. Owners should prepare for him to miss a few games but hopefully these come on the very end of the season and not during fantasy playoffs.

  • Khyri Thomas - G - Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas and Svi Mykhailiuk have been assigned by the Pistons to the Grand Rapids Drive of the G League.

    Drive have 3 games left and sit one-half game behind Chicago for the division lead and the automatic playoff berth. Both players should be able to help them while also polishing their game instead of sitting on the Pistons bench.
