• Jerry West
    Team, Los Angeles Clippers

    Jerry West has agreed to return to the Clippers next season in order to continue his work as special consultant to the team's front office.

    West returns to the Clippers ahead of a pivotal summer for the franchise, which hopes to use its cap space to sign at least one of the several big-name free agents available this offseason. In two seasons since he has been in an advisory role, the Clippers have revamped the roster by trading away stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, and letting DeAndre Jordan walk in free agency. The longtime NBA executive and Lakers Hall of Fame guard joined the Clippers in June 2017 after leaving a similar role with the Warriors.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    In the latest medical update from the Grizzlies, Brandon Clarke (right quad) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Clarke's absence opens up a window for guys like Gorgui Dieng and Josh Jackson to shine in the short term. Dieng is an add in standard leagues, while Jackson can be picked up in 16-teamers or deeper.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas (right foot surgery) is available for the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Thomas has been out a long time and will likely see just a few minutes. He's not on any fantasy radars right now.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown will not play against the Nuggets on Tuesday with a sore left knee.

    Brown's absence opens up more minutes for the likes of Langston Galloway and Jordan Bone.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (back stiffness) is available to play for the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Ferguson was left off the injury report leading up to this update, so there's little surprise here. He might have some low-impact but will not be relevant enough for adding deep leagues.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. is apparently dealing with a right knee injury and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

    This comes out of nowhere, so it's quite unfortunate for owners who've slotted him in for the week. Mikal Bridges should emerge as the biggest beneficiary of this situation.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell (left hamstring tightness) is expected to be re-evaluated in one week.

    Powell will wind up missing the month of February, with an eye toward returning for the stretch run. He has provided top-60/70 per-game value in 9/8 cat leagues on the year and makes for a promising stash candidate for owners who can afford to wait for him. Continue to monitor his status.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke (right hip soreness) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    The injury is untimely as Jaren Jackson Jr. has been ruled out for the next two weeks. Without Clarke and Jackson, Josh Jackson may slide his way into the starting lineup while Gorgui Dieng and De'Anthony Melton should see additional minutes as well. Josh Jackson looks like the highest upside of the group while both of the team's top PF's are out.

  • Jonathan Isaac
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac (sprained left knee and bone bruise) did some on-court work, but the team will remain patient with his recovery.

    Isaac isn't expected to return this year, but crazier things have happened. We wouldn't stash him, but he is worth keeping an eye on in case he does manage to get back on the court at some point this year. His defensive upside is unparalleled.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez (sore back) will play in Tuesday's must-see matchup against the Raptors.

    Lopez missed the front end of the back-to-back set, but is good to go for this highly anticipated matchup pitting the top two teams in the Eastern Conference up against one another. Play Lopez as you usually would. Robin Lopez will return to a reserve role.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Terence Davis is in line for additional minutes when the Raptors take on the only team ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings.
