Rodney McGruder returned to the floor in Friday's victory over the Wolves, finishing with three rebounds.
It wasn't one to write home about for McGruder, but just getting back on the floor after a hamstring injury kept him out a few weeks is a good sign. The Clippers are dealing with a lot of injuries right now, so if he can get back up to speed quickly there could be some extra minutes for him.

Chris Paul (personal) is no longer being listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game with the Kings.
Paul missed Monday's game after learning of the passing of Kobe Bryant. He will look to continue to put up the top-5/15 value in 9/8 cat leagues that he has this season.

LaMarcus Aldridge (right thumb sprain) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
With Aldridge out again, Jakob Poeltl is looking at another start and heavy minutes against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz. Poeltl had 16 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks against the Bulls on Monday in place of LMA.

Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) has been cleared to make his return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
Embiid's return is huge for the Sixers and fantasy owners alike. The Sixers have been playing without both Embiid and Josh Richardson (groin) and will have to make some changes to their starting lineup. Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton will lose some minutes with Embiid back.

Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Heat.
With Tatum once again out of the lineup look for Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to soak up the majority of his minutes.

Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.
The team called up Josh Jackson on Tuesday and the former 4th overall pick may have a chance to make an immediate impact. Jackson was tearing it up in the G League this season and is worth a flier. Kyle Anderson and De'Anthony Melton are in line for additional minutes as well.

Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle sprain) is expected to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Porter missed multiple weeks with the ankle injury and played 16 minutes in his return to the lineup on Monday. It seems like the Cavs will let him go again on the second night of a back-to-back set. There will be more minutes to go around with Darius Garland (rest) sitting this one out.

Dante Exum will start in place of Darius Garland (rest) for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.
Exum is looking at extra minutes and usage in this one while getting the bump in the starting lineup. Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) is expected to play, but if he winds up sitting, Exum will have even more on his plate.

Kevin Love will play against the Pelicans on Tuesday, which will be the second night of a back-to-back set.
This is a different approach by the team, especially considering the trade deadline is just over a week away. With Love in for this one, Larry Nance Jr. will stay in a reserve role and makes for a harder player to pick in DFS contents.
