• Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    According to Jake Fischer of SI, the Thunder are looking to shed salaries of players like Steven Adams, Dennis Schroeder and Andre Roberson to get under the salary cap and are willing to toss in the No. 21 pick to sweeten the deal.

    Fischer isn't typically a big newsbreaker but there have been several stories indicating that the Thunder are attempting to shed some salary. Steven Adams has two more years on his contract that will pay him a total of $53M. Despite the big price tag, there will be interest in the Kiwi by some teams with cap space in need of a rim protector, especially when the Thunder throw in a first round pick.

Fantasy News

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III was listed questionable for Saturday with an ankle injury.

    Robinson has scored double digits in five of his past six games and is a top-125 player on the season. He has little upside and is best suited for 14-team leagues.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson ran into a screen on Friday and injured his left elbow.

    The collision looked bad but Richardson was able to return to the game on Friday. He has played 36 minutes per game over his past six games, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around if he misses time. Mattisse Thybulle has seen extra run with Joel Embiid out and could see increased value if Richardson misses time. Furkan Korkmaz, James Ennis and Mike Scott could also be streaming options for points and threes.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Jacob Evans was ruled out for Saturday with a concussion.

    Jacob Evans should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues. There are plenty of players ahead of him in the Warriors' rotation so it's unlikely he will have fantasy value this season.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green was listed out for Saturday with a sprained finger.

    This injury came out of nowhere and it's small injuries like this that make Green a risky fantasy player moving forward. Owners should try and sell-high on Green once he comes back. Erich Paschall will be a streaming option on Saturday and is a solid DFS play.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (illness) said he would play on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

    Lillard has an upper respiratory illness but will play through it. Lillard is a top-10 player and should come through for his owners on Friday with a good matchup.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry went to the locker room with two minutes left in the first half on Friday.

    Lowry limped to the locker room in the first quarter after banging his knee. He was able to return to the game but left for the locker room early in the first half. Fred VanVleet should return soon and would see increased value with Lowry out. Norman Powell and OG Anunoby would also benefit.

  • Mario Hezonja
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Coach Stotts said that Mario Hezonja is available after missing two games with a lower back contusion.

    Hezonja is outside the top-300 on the season. He can be left on the waiver wire outside of 30-team leagues.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae left the game in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle after stepping on a player's foot.

    Troy Brown Jr. is the player to look at after this news. Brown is ranked 109 per game in 9-cat in the month of January. He's averaging 13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals during that stretch and will hold standard-league value if McRae misses time.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae stepped on another player's foot on Saturday and went to the floor while holding his ankle.

    McRae has been a solid option for points the past two weeks, averaging 18.8 points in the month of January. Troy Brown Jr. would benefit the most if McRae misses time. Brown could have standard-league value while McRae is out.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry limped to the locker room during the first quarter on Friday against the Wolves after suffering what appeared to be a leg injury, but he is available to return.

    Uh oh. After the Raptors were finally getting everybody back and healthy Lowry is now the latest stud to go down on the roster. Lowry has come back from worse injuries than this, and it sounds like he will be fine and will be able to return to this game.
