• Joel Embiid tied his career-high with three assists against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

    And thus, “Point Process” is born.  In all seriousness, seeing Embiid flash a willingness to pass is an encouraging sign given his sky high usage rate.  He finished his night with 12 points, 11 boards, one steal, one 3-pointer and three blocks in 27 minutes.  The minutes restriction will remain a nuisances for the time being, but Embiid’s upside is absolutely tantalizing.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Daniel Gafford (left finger sprain) is listed as available for Wednesday's game.

    Gafford mostly gets bench minutes when Wendell Carter Jr. is resting. He scored 14 points on Monday but is rarely that productive.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (right wrist fracture) will miss Wednesday's game.

    Felicio hasn't yet played in 2019-20 and he was just a role player last season. It does seem like he's getting closer to action, though.

  • Wayne Ellington
    SG, New York Knicks

    Wayne Ellington (sore left Achilles) will be unavailable on Wednesday.

    Ellington missed Saturday's game as well. He hasn't made a huge impact this season, but Allonzo Trier could see some more action for now.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Alex Caruso scored 16 points on Sunday with Rondo sidelined. Rondo had strung together several solid games before getting injured on Friday.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz is considered questionable for Wednesday's game due to illness.

    Fultz has looked good so far this season but might need to rest against the Lakers. D.J. Augustin would likely receive starter's minutes if Fultz can't play.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic after dealing with a right leg hairline fracture.

    Bradley has missed more than a month but looks like he is ready to return. He probably won't help standard league owners much but may cut into Alex Caruso's minutes eventually.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma won't play on Wednesday due to left ankle soreness.

    Kuzma initially injured the ankle two weeks ago and is feeling some lingering pain. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope could see more action in his absence.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright (right adductor strain) is considered questionable to play on Thursday.

    The Mavs will take on the Pistons in Mexico City, but Wright may not be available. Look for Seth Curry and J.J. Barea to see more action if he's unavailable.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will miss Wednesday's game for personal reasons.

    Favors has rejoined the team but is still working his way back after his mother passed away. Jaxson Hayes has stepped up in his absence with Jahlil Okafor also receiving more minutes.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    The Bucks are 21-3, so it makes sense for them to be careful with their star. Robin Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova should see a bump in minutes. Antetokounmpo is off to an excellent start even by his standards with 30.9 points and 13.2 rebounds per game.
