• Nikola Mirotic
    F, Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic is expected to draw his second straight start in Game 3 versus the Celtics.

    Mirotic shot poorly in Game 2, but was extremely active and played a viable role in the Bucks' win. He will draw heavy ownership in DFS, but is a fantastic play regardless.

Fantasy News

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. (foot) will not play during Thursday's game.

    Porter has returned to practice but isn't quite ready for game action. He has missed more than three months but should be able to help fantasy owners down the stretch.

  • Chandler Hutchison
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Chandler Hutchison (shoulder) will not play on Thursday.

    This is an unexpected development, and the Bulls were pretty depleted in the first place. Keep running Thaddeus Young out there until the team gets healthy.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) will not be available for Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Valentine last played on February 2 and will remain on the sidelines. He holds very little fantasy value in the first place while playing just 12.2 minutes per contest this season.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) will not play during Thursday's game.

    Carter was hoping to play, but he is already practicing and a return should be approaching shortly. That's positive news for a player who has been out since early January.

  • Meyers Leonard
    C, Miami Heat

    Meyers Leonard (left ankle sprain) will not play on Thursday.

    Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr. will help to fill in. Leonard will have the occasional strong game but isn't a major fantasy contributor.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (right ankle soreness) will not play during Thursday's game.

    Herro was hoping to play right out of the All-Star break, but he will not face the Hawks. Herro last played on February 3 and Goran Dragic should continue to see extra playing time.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo will no longer be subject to a minutes restriction, but still he will not play back-to-back contests.

    Nate McMillan announced the change to reporters on Wednesday. Oladipo has averaged 11.1 points and 2.9 assists in 25.0 minutes per game so far. Just be prepared for the days of rest when the Pacers have a heavy schedule.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford told the media that he expects to continue coming off the bench going forward.

    Even off the bench, Horford has been playing close to 30 minutes per night of late. Nevertheless, it's an indication that Josh Richardson should maintain his place in the starting lineup for the Sixers. Horford can contribute in a variety of categories, but he has scored only 9.3 points per game over his last ten appearances.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will be out for "weeks" according to Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce.

    The Hawks have little incentive to rush Capela and Dewayne Dedmon should see steady minutes while he is sidelined. Still, this is a longer absence than most observers would have expected. Capela is a double-double machine when healthy, but hopefully your league has an injured reserve spot if you own him.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) will not play on Thursday.

    Kennard's timetable is still unclear, but Reggie Jackson's buyout should give him added value when he rejoins the Pistons. Kennard has enjoyed his finest season to date in compiling 15.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game.
