• Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic bounced back from a bad game vs. the Warriors on Tuesday and put up 20 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists on 9-of-10 shooting in a 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Jokic is a top-20 value for the season in 9-cat leagues and top-12 value in 8-cat leagues. He is as dominant as the guys in the top-10, but he just has no overpowering skill and does a little bit of everything.

  • 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.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Malika Andrews of ESPN is reporting that Levert (right thumb surgery) is on schedule for the initial 4-6 week timetable and has resumed on-court work but has yet to be cleared for contact.

    The Nets are without both Levert and Kyrie Irving (shoulder), but both are ramping up their activity. Neither have been cleared for contact yet, so this is a situation to continue to monitor for those who have either of them on fantasy rosters.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley will come off the bench on Wednesday and will be restricted to 15 minutes.

    Bradley had a right leg hairline fracture that forced him to miss the past 13 games. He will slowly ramp up as he gets into game-shape but it is unclear if he will regain the starting role from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Magic as he nurses a strained hamstring.

    Rondo has the potential to produce value worthy of the last spot on your roster in standard leagues, while he has slightly more value in 8-cat leagues. Alex Caruso will continue to see more opportunity if Rondo misses the game while Avery Bradley will see about 15 minutes in his first game back from injury.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green (tailbone) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Clippers.

    This will be Green's fourth game that he has missed in the last five, while he only saw four minutes in the one game he did play. He is off the fantasy radar in standard leagues as he is producing per-game value just inside the top-200.
