• Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson is starting the second half over Noah Vonleh on Tuesday against the Magic.

    Robinson is a prime pickup and should not be on any standard league waiver wires. With Enes Kanter out of the picture and DeAndre Jordan (ankle) ailing/sitting, he is in a prime spot to flash his insane big-man potential. His per-36 numbers of 4.5 blocks per game make him a must-own player, as well as his efficiency and rebounding stats. Make sure he isn't available in your league.

  • 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.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Rockets are interested in acquiring Wolves’ forward Robert Covington, according to Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer.

    This is consistent with an earlier report that claimed the Rockets were after a wing. Their lack of depth has been apparent through the early stretch, and adding a 3-and-D star like Covington could boost their all-around game heading into the rest of the season. Despite sending a pile of picks to the Thunder in the Russell Westbrook blockbuster trade, Houston can still move its 2020 and 2022 first-round picks, which should make for some interesting bargaining. It’s hard to envision the Wolves parting with RoCo but trade season looks to be upon us once again.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are considering sending Jordan Poole to a G League assignment, in a major step in the process to help the rookie shooting guard rediscover his game.

    The move is a response to Poole failing to find any rhythm, shooting 25.8 percent from the field, including 24.5 percent from beyond the arc. The Warriors are certain Poole is better than what he has shown, but injuries left them in no position to be without any healthy player in recent weeks. The move, if it happens, could have a positive impact on the rookie who has been asked to do more than he is capable of delivering at this point of his career.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Sam Amick and John Hollinger of The Athletic reported on Monday that the Rockets and head coach Mike D’Antoni are likely to part ways if the team does not win the NBA championship this season.

    D’Antoni is currently in the final year of the four-year contract he signed in 2016, going 188-80 (.701) in 268 regular-season games and 23-16 (.590) in 39 postseason games. Both winning percentages are the highest by any coach in Rockets’ franchise history but that might not be enough for him to remain in Houston. The coach and the team tried multiple times during the 2019 offseason to secure a contract extension, but they were unable to come to terms. D’Antoni’s potential availability could have a ripple effect on coaching situations elsewhere in the league, with other NBA teams possibly making a plan to pursue him once his current deal expires.
