• Robin Lopez
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Robin Lopez only played 24 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Heat but was still able to post 13 points (6-for-8 shooting), a steal and two blocks.

    Hassan Whiteside was in foul trouble so Lopez got a chance to feast a bit on offense. This sort of line is certainly an attainable goal for Lopez as long as the Bulls are giving him minutes, and he remains a useful low-end center for teams in need.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown (right thumb sprain) is being listed as available to play in Monday's game against the Wizards.

    Brown has been frequently popping up on the injury report as available with the thumb injury recently, but he doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing any time. Continue to play Brown as you normally would.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Nick Nurse said that he will probably shuffle the team's starting lineup for the second half of the season and that he is still undecided on how today's lineup will shake out.

    If the Raptors were to make a change to the starting lineup, the most likely move would seem to be bringing Fred VanVleet off of the bench. Regardless if FVV starts or comes off the bench, he is still going to get his minutes and usage, while closing out games. Continue to ride him while he is in the lineup.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) will be active for Monday's matchup with the Nets.

    Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott will remain in smaller roles off the bench with Horford able to play. Feel free to get him back into your lineups.

  • Tyler Cook
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs will sign F Tyler Cook to a second 10-day contract on Monday.

    Cook hasn't played much during his time with the Cavs, but he will stick around as a depth option for now. He can be ignored in fantasy circles.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against the Sixers.

    Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will take on more minutes and responsibility with Irving out. It's been a hard year to own Irving, who has been a monster producer when healthy, but that has rarely been the case this season. It is not certain at this moment how much time Irving will miss. We will continue to monitor the situation.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. (concussion) went through shootaround on Monday, though coach Monty Wiliams wouldn't commit to him playing against the Spurs.

    Oubre is being listed as probable, and going through shootaround gives every indication that he'll be making his return to action after a two-game absence. Feel free to plug him back into all lineups.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (lower back strain) is being ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors.

    Len getting upgraded to doubtful for this one was a step in the right direction, but he still isn't ready to go. Damian Jones and Bruno Fernando will continue to fill in while Len is on the mend.

  • Norvel Pelle
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Norvel Pelle (undisclosed) is being listed as out against the Nets on Monday.

    Pelle is missing an opportunity to see a nice role in the Sixers rotation as Al Horford (hand) is considered a game-time decision. Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott would be staring on big minutes if Horford can't play.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) is considered to be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Continue to monitor the situation closely, as Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott would be looking at heavy minutes if Horford can't go. Norvel Pelle has been ruled out.

  • Nemanja Bjelica
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Nemanja Bjelica (right ankle) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Heat.

    Bjelica has been playing through the sore ankle for a bit now, and it doesn't look like it is going to be anything that will keep him out of the lineup at the moment. Bjelica is providing top-25/35 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past two weeks and will continue to get ample time at least until Richaun Holmes returns.
