• Nemanja Bjelica
    F, Sacramento Kings

    Nemanja Bjelica started again on Saturday night but scored just two points in 14 minutes against the Rockets.

    It's probably time to give up the ghost here in 12-team leagues, assuming you haven't moved on already. Teams are targeting him constantly on defense and he may not be long for the starting lineup.

  • Trevor Ariza
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Trevor Ariza has been battling right groin soreness but is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Ariza has only averaged 20.6 minutes this season, scoring 4.2 points and grabbing 3.5 rebounds. His return may cut into the productivity of Bogdan Bogdanovic, but not enough to use Ariza in most leagues.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. will start on Monday due to Kevin Love's back injury.

    Cedi Osman will move to power forward as Porter enters the lineup. Porter has only averaged 18.9 minutes this season but will get a boost while Love misses time. However, he is shooting just 35.8% from the floor so far.

  • Grayson Allen
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Grayson Allen will miss Monday's game with left ankle soreness.

    Allen hasn't played since November 2. His fantasy value is very low at the moment.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Knicks coach David Fizdale said that Mitchell Robinson will not start but is available off the bench on Monday despite his sprained right ankle.

    Fizdale tabbed Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, and Marcus Morris as starters in the frontcourt. It seems odd that Robinson would be deployed if he's not fully healthy considering the Knicks' record, but Fizdale is desperate for a win.

  • Stanley Johnson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Stanley Johnson has a left groin stress reaction and will not play on Monday.

    Oshae Brissett was recalled from the G League to replace Johnson. Johnson has played sparingly so far, so this is unlikely to significantly affect the rotation for the Raptors.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House (back) is probable to play against Portland at home on Monday.

    House sat out three games with his back injury but should slot back into his usual role against the Blazers. He has been a pleasant surprise for both the Rockets and fantasy managers this year as he is currently sitting inside the top-60 in standard 9-cat formats on averages of 12-3-5 with 2.5 threes and 1.2 steals in a career high 29.2 minutes per game.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not play against the Pacers on Monday night.

    Kyrie has been playing at less than 100% and this will give him a few more days of rest to let his shoulder heal. His next chance to suit up will be Wednesday at home versus the Hornets. Spencer Dinwiddie should start in his absence.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's road game against the Utah Jazz per the NBA official injury report.

    Okogie went through shoot-around and will be a game-time decision. Check back closer to tip-off but if he cannot play, Jarrett Culver and Jake Layman will soak up his minutes. If he can play, he may have an opportunity at an expanded role with Andrew Wiggins most likely sitting out.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (ankle) will play at home against the Bucks on Monday.

    LaVine has played his usual allotment of minutes since first rolling his ankle on November 12 and has actually been better in the past week with averages of 29-3-4 with 3.3 triples and 1.4 steals on 44% shooting from the field and 91% from the line. On the season he is returning top-45/75 value (8-cat/9-cat).

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's road game against the Nets.

    This will be McConnell's second game on the sidelines and with Malcolm Brogdon still out, Aaron Holiday will continue to start for the Pacers at the point and his brother Justin Holiday will see more run. Naz Mitrou-Long also played 15 minutes on Saturday but he is far from providing value in anything but the deepest of formats.
