• Nik Stauskas
    G, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Nik Stauskas (back bruise) will not play in Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    Stauskas is a bit part for Cleveland anyway, so his absence won't lead to anything for fantasy purposes.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley will make his return from a right thumb fracture on Wednesday, but will come off the bench.

    This isn't a totally surprising development considering the amount of time Bagley missed. Expect his minutes to be monitored moving forward.

  • Ersan Ilyasova
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova is moving into the starting five in Wednesday night's game against the Pelicans.

    Ilyasova could make for a decent DFS flier for some threes and scoring.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson (right heel soreness) will play on Wednesday against the Suns after being listed as probable.

    Anderson has had some fantasy value in the past, but don't add him unless he strings several productive games in a row.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke, who was listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Suns, is indeed playing.

    Considering Clarke was initially listed as "week-to-week" this is excellent news. Breathe a sigh of relief and get him back in all your lineups.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague will suit up for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Jazz after being listed as questionable with an ankle injury.

    Teague will likely continue to be the primary playmaker off the bench for the Wolves as Jarrett Culver has taken the starting role. Teague is currently producing top 86/106 per-game value in 8/9 cat leagues.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets due to a finger injury.

    Monk was previously listed as a game-time decision before this most recent news. With Monk joining Nicolas Batum as unavailable, Dwayne Bacon has a real chance to enter the rotation while Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could also see more minutes. Bacon makes for an intriguing low-cost DFS play.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk (finger discomfort) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Nets.

    Monk could see additional opportunity in Wednesday's contest if he is able to play as the Hornets will be without Nicolas Batum (left hand). If Monk ends up sitting out, Dwayne Bacon, Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could all be intriguing low-cost DFS plays. Bacon has the most fantasy-friendly game out of the three.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Iman Shumpert has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's contest vs. the Hornets.

    Since signing with the Nets in early November, Shumpert has been averaging 18.8 minutes off the bench and hasn't provided value for fantasy leagues outside of perhaps 30-team leagues.

  • Keita Bates-Diop
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop (illness) will not play in Wednesday's matchup against the Jazz.

    With Bates-Diop ruled out, Treveon Graham and Josh Okogie could see additional opportunity.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum will not face the Nets on Wednesday due to discomfort in his left hand.

    Batum has been averaging 21.9 minutes per game but is averaging a career-low 3.3 field goal attempts per game. His usage so far this year is also a career-low (9.5). With Batum ruled out, Malik Monk (game-time decision) could see more minutes if he ends up playing. Dwayne Bacon would also see some minutes.
