• Nene
    C/F, Houston Rockets

    Nene will sit Wednesday's game against the Hornets for rest purposes but will be available for Thursday against the Heat.

    With Clint Capela back and Kenneth Faried likely returning to the bench, Nene's utility was already limited. There's no fantasy fallout from this.

Fantasy News

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left knee/left hamstring) will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Horford will have to watch the Sixers play his former team from the bench on Thursday. Mike Scott is the likely candidate to see an increased role with Horford out and makes for an intriguing low-cost DFS play.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game against the Rockets due to a virus.

    Fultz could miss his second straight game on Friday as he deals with some sort of illness. DJ Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams will continue to see additional opportunity for as long as Fultz remains out. Augustin is the more attractive streaming option although MCW performed better on Wednesday night despite missing all four of his attempts from the charity stripe.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet has been ruled out ahead of Friday's game vs. the Wolves as he recovers from a high left ankle sprain.

    Shamet and Patrick Beverley (concussion) have already been ruled out of Friday's game. This will likely lead to more opportunity for rookie Terance Mann who has performed well in limited minutes thus far this season. He is looking like an intriguing low-cost option in DFS matchups for Friday.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford is a true game-time decision heading into Thursday's matchup vs. the Celtics.

    A decision regarding Horford's availability will come after he goes through warmups. The good news is that this will be the first game of the night, allowing those who play DFS an opportunity to pivot if Horford is ultimately ruled out. If Al doesn't play against his former team, expect Mike Scott to see more minutes.

  • Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward (facial contusion) will play on Thursday against the Sixers.

    This will be Hayward's third game back since suffering an injury in early November that forced him to miss a total of 13 games. Hayward is currently producing per-game value around the top-50 in both 8 and 9 cat leagues.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley will not play against the Warriors on Friday due to tightness in his left hamstring.

    Emmanuel Mudiay has seen an increased role since Conley got injured and should continue to see opportunity for as long as Conley remains out. Joe Ingles also sees a boost in assists when Conley is not on the floor.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green (tailbone) is questionable to face the Wolves on Friday.

    Green is in jeopardy of missing his fifth game of the season on Friday. If he is forced to miss another game, Patrick Patterson will continue to see an increased role.

  • Rodney McGruder
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Rodney McGruder is probable to play in Friday's game against the Wolves as he nurses a hamstring injury.

    McGruder hasn't played in the Clippers' last seven ball games but is nearing a return. He could be in line for extra opportunity in his first game back as Patrick Beverley (concussion) has already been ruled out. However, he has been given the opportunity to produce fantasy value so far this season. He is off the fantasy radar for now but could be used as a low-cost option in DFS lineups on Friday.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley suffered a concussion that will force him to miss Friday's game against the Wolves.

    Beverley suffered a concussion during Wednesday's game and will be forced to miss time as a result. With Beverley out, the Clippers could extend more minutes to rookie Terance Mann.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine (left ankle) is probable for Friday's matchup vs. the Hornets.

    Valentine is on the injury report as a precaution as he is only just coming back from an injury that held him out for the entirety of last season. He has performed well in the last two weeks, producint per-game value of 130/104 in 8/9 cat leagues. He could be viable as a standard league asset this season.
