• Nemanja Bjelica
    F, Sacramento Kings

    Nemanja Bjelica started on Thursday and scored 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Bjelica started, but couldn't buy a bucket from deep, going 1-for-7 from distance. He's going to be inconsistent in terms of production as long as Marvin Bagley (15 points on 7-of-16 shooting with eight boards, an assist and a 3-pointer) is playing. Bagley is the more secure option.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (right thigh contusion) went through some portions of Thursday's practice but is considered to be questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Young missed Wednesday's game against the Clippers, and although participating in portions of practice is an improvement, he is not in the clear just yet. Continue to monitor the situation as the day rolls along. If Young can't go, Jeff Teague would be in line for another start.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) is considered to be probable for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    Rondo should play his usual role in this one and may be in line for some added usage if Anthony Davis (questionable) is unable to play. Play him as you normally would.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma (sore left ankle) is considered to be probable ahead of Thursday's game against the Nets.

    It seems like Kuzma isn't in any danger of missing the second night of a back-to-back set, but the same can't be said for teammate Anthony Davis (questionable). Keep an eye on the situation as if Davis gets ruled out, Kuzma would get the start in Davis' place.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are listing Anthony Davis (glute) as questionable to play on Thursday against the Nets, which marks the team's first back-to-back set since returning from injury.

    Davis scored 28 points in Wednesday's win over the Knicks, but it is not surprising to see the team take a cautious approach with their superstar big man after returning to the court on Monday after missing the previous five games due to injury. Check back in closer to game time for an official status update. Kyle Kuzma (probable) will be in line to start if Davis sits.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Minnesota president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas said that Karl-Anthony Towns is "as untouchable as they come," per Eric Woodyard of ESPN.

    "He's the best player on our team and he's the guy we're building around," Gersson said, "Everything we do is to help him become the best player and to help us become the best team we can be." That clears that whole thing up. The Wolves have already stayed true to their statement by trading away Jeff Teague, whose passing displeased Towns through two and half seasons in Minnesota. Many in the fantasy community are afraid of Towns pulling an Anthony Davis with the trade deadline fast approaching, but there have been no indications from the Towns side that that is a distinct possibility. Towns has top-3 upside the rest of the way and, while there's some uncertainty currently surrounding him, he's one of the most valuable fantasy players in the game.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell dropped 26 points on 10-of-21 shooting, and only adding three boards and three assists to his line in Wednesday's 129-96 blowout loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

    D'Angelo Russell has been the one bright spot for fantasy owners on the Warriors. He is still only a mid-round player on the year, and the Warriors could start to rest their star off-season acquisition down the stretch.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn scored 14 points with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes on Wednesday.

    Dunn also got to the line nine times and hit eight of them, a surprise bonus for a player who averages less than one attempt per game. Dunn is ranked just outside the top-100 thanks to his 2.0 steals per game. He doesn't add much in other categories, but the consistent steals makes him worth rostering in standard leagues.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green only attempted three shots in 25 minutes on Wednesday, ending with five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3PT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal, while failing to make it to the charity stripe.

    Green hasn't been the player we've come to know over the last few seasons. It's going to be tough to trust him to play on a nightly basis, and even when he does, there's a lot of volatility in his performances.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss turned 18 bench minutes into 11 points, eight rebounds and an assist.

    It was a tough night for Warriors big men going up against Rudy Gobert. Chriss had the best luck, as starter, Willie Cauley-Stein, went 0-for-5 in 14 minutes. Eric Paschall fared slightly better, also coming off the bench for 26 minutes to end with 11 points (4-10 FG), four rebounds and three assists.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen scored 21 points on 6-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds and four triples in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

    It was a nice bounce-back effort for Markkanen who scored only eight points on 2-of-11 shooting in 31 minutes on Monday. Markkanen owners are desperately hoping he can get it going after a disappointing first half of the season. He's a top-100 player on the season but has showed the ability to produce top-50 numbers and is a buy-low target.
