• Fred VanVleet
    G, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have extended a qualifying offer to Fred VanVleet, making him a restricted free agent.

    As expected. The Raptors have been trying to clear salary so as to retain VanVleet and dodge a big tax bill but have come up empty so far. Opposing teams could slide some tough-to-match offers VanVleet's way, especially as he comes off a breakout season where he finished third in Sixth Man of the Year voting. If the right teams come calling it's possible that FVV ends up starting somewhere next season, but even if he stays in Toronto he's shown the ability to deliver low-end value in standard leagues in a reserve role.

Fantasy News

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis had 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting and added nine rebounds before fouling out late in the game Sunday against the Lakers.

    Theis has clearly usurped Enes Kanter for minutes in coach Brad Stevens' offense, as evidenced by his spot in the starting lineup. Theis got 31 minutes in Sunday's game and should continue to provide top-75 value the rest of the season.

  • Jalen Brunson
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Jalen Brunson (right shoulder) is being listed as out for Monday's contest against the Wolves.

    Luka Doncic is expected to return from a one-game absence on Monday, so Brunson would not have gotten much run anyway. Delon Wright might receive a small bump in minutes Monday with Brunson out.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) is being listed as questionable ahead of the Mavs' game on Monday vs. the Wolves.

    Cauley-Stein's fantasy value has been nonexistent since being moved to the Mavericks prior to the trade deadline. He missed Saturday's game but Kristaps Porzingis has been very good and even Maxi Kleber is ahead of Cauley-Stein on Dallas' pecking order down low.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (right ankle) has been deemed probable for the Mavs' game on Monday against the Wolves.

    Coach Rick Carlisle said Sunday that he expects Luka's ankle soreness to be a short-term thing. Backup guards Delon Wright and J.J. Barea are the most impacted by Doncic's return to action, assuming he does indeed suit up on Monday

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez (back) has been listed as out for the Bucks' Monday night contest vs. the Wizards.

    The Bucks are hoping this is a short-term thing. Coach Mike Budenholzer reiterated that he didn't think Lopez would miss much time but until there is another update, we can't say anything definitively.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (right Achilles) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Heat.

    New coach J.B. Bickerstaff did not play him on Saturday because it was the second day of a back-to-back set against the Wizards and the Heat. All signs point to Love being out there on Sunday in a home game for the Cavs.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris (knee) is being listed as doubtful for the Sixers' clash with the Hawks on Monday.

    The Sixers really need him out there with Simmons out, so this comes as a disappointment for Philly fans. Joel Embiid will shoulder all the offensive load on Monday while every other player on the Sixers gets an upgrade for that contest.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder (ankle) is available for Sunday's home face-off with the Spurs.

    Schroder has been unbelievable off the bench thus far and was never in any real danger of missing time. Plug him into fantasy lineups.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine (left hamstring tightness) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest against the Wizards.

    He went through 3-on-3 drill on Friday so he's nearing a return to action. Valentine really needed to get shipped out of town at the deadline a few weeks ago to have any sort of value due to his frequent rifts with coach Jim Boylen. Maybe he gets some extended run closer to the end of the season, but don't hold your breath.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) still is not ready to return for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    He still isn't ready to go and was not expected to be able to give a go on Sunday. Look for him to make his return to the lineup sometime during the upcoming week.
