• Nick Young
    G, Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets have waived Nick Young.

    Young knew the deal, as he was signed with a hardship exception while Denver down three starters. Now that Paul Millsap is back and Gary Harris and Will Barton not far behind, the writing was on the wall. The Nuggets had nothing but good things to say about Swaggy in his short stay so we might see him resurface with another team down the line.

Fantasy News

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard (left knee contusion) is questionable on the injury report, but head coach Doc Rivers said he "most deftinitely" will play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Leonard will have had four days off leading into Monday's game so hopefully he is over any injuries or rest issues at this point. Paul George's return will change the Clippers' overall shot distribution, but it is unlikely to take the ball out of Kawhi's hands. He remains a fantasy force that can only be stopped by the occasional maintenance day.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley is questionable to take on the Thunder on Monday as he continues to deal with left calf soreness.

    Beverley has already missed two games with this injury, and let's hope this long rest will nip the issue in the bud. Beverley has been an atrocious shooter this season and brings little to the table as a scorer. Unless you are in need of his strong rebounding (6.4 rebounds) from the guard position or his reliable thievery capabilities (1.5 steals), Beverley is deserving of a drop in standard leagues while injured.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be in the starting lineup yet again on Sunday as the Lakers face the Hawks.

    KCP had a productive 25 minutes on Friday and will look to replicate that production alongside the starters on Sunday. With Avery Bradley (leg) out of the way, Caldwell-Pope will have a nice opportunity for the next two weeks of fantasy action. Scoop him up if you want to cash in on his 3-point shooting and steals during this period.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Michael-Carter Williams (strained left hip) exited the Magic's faceoff with the Wizards on Sunday.

    MCW made it through six minutes before going down with the injury. His role has been limited and he remains a lousy shooter that will drag down your percentages. Williams is best left on the wire, and he is unlikely to make any noise on the Magic this season.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin dislocated the fifth metacarpal of his left hand but x-rays showed no fracture, and he is expected to return for the Magic on Sunday.

    Augustin has been delivering steady late round value throughout the season, but with the Magic's focus upon developing Markelle Fultz, Augustin's role is capped. It sounds like this injury will not have an impact on his performance, and Augustin will remain a reliable deep-league or streaming option.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart struggled to find his stroke scoring five points on 2-of-16 shooting from the field during Sunday's loss to the Kings.

    It was a poor shooting night, but Smart managed to dole out nine assists and snag five rebounds. He should continue to start with Gordon Hayward sidelined.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is being considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Jazz.

    Okogie missed Saturday's game and Jake Layman and Jarrett Culver made the most out of his minutes and would be the biggest beneficiaries forced to sit again.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is being considered doubtful for Monday's game versus the Jazz.

    Wiggins has missed the past two games due to the death of his grandmother and appears to be dealing with an illness now. Look for Jarrett Culver to see even more minutes if Josh Okogie is unable to suit up as well.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis scored 14 points and 12 rebounds in Sunday's 100-99 loss the the Kings.

    The entire frontcourt is finally healthy, but Theis continues to distance himself from the bunch. He is going to continue to split minutes with Robert Williams III and Enes Kanter, but is the one worth owning at the moment.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bodan Bogdanovic posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 assists on Sunday versus the Celtics.

    Bogdanovic chipped in two 3-pointers and continues to be the biggest beneficiary with De'Aaron Fox sidelined and is flirting with top-100 upside.
