• Omari Spellman
    F, Atlanta Hawks

    Omari Spellman will play on Friday against the Celtics.

    Spellman has been upgraded to active for this one. With John Collins back, he's stuck as a limited backup, but there is still appeal for dynasty leagues. In a redraft league he probably doesn't need to be rostered for the time being.

    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier has been listed as out with a right hamstring strain on Saturday.

    Napier will now miss his seventh straight game as he recovers from his right hamstring strain. Hamstrings can be tricky to deal with so the Wolves will take their time. Jeff Teague and Jarrett Culver will take the majority of the ball handling duties.

    Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Heat.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony is expected to join the Blazers on Tuesday.

    The Blazers are extremely thin in their frontcourt and their is a decent chance Anthony actually sees a decent role. He may only be worth an add in anything but deeper leagues, but put him on your watch list.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Nassir Little will start on Saturday versus the Spurs.

    Little has his first career start on Thursday and did enough to convince Blazers head coach Terry Stotts to give him a longer look. Carmelo Anthony will be joining the team shortly and will have an impact on this rotation.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant (sore left hip) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Magic.

    Bryant most likely picked up the injury in the last game and only played 23 minutes. Moritz Wagner would be the biggest beneficiary if Bryant were to miss and would make for a fantastic streaming and DFS play.

    Jimmy Butler (illness) will warm up and preparation of playing for Saturday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Goran Dragic has already been ruled out and Butler may be dealing with the same illness. If the Heat were to opt to sit their star this would be the right time against a battered Pelicans' team.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (illness) will not play on Saturday versus the Pelicans.

    Without Dragic the Heat will rely on their youth in Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro to step up. Jimmy Butler is also battling an illness and will attempt to warmup before ruling himself out.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers will be starting Aaron and Justin Holiday, T.J. Warren, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner on Saturday versus the Bucks.

    It was first being reported that Naz Mitrou-Long would join Aaron Holiday in the starting backcourt, but this looks like the official lineup. Both Holiday brothers make for interesting DFS and streaming options for as long as Malcolm Brogdon misses.
