• Rudy Gobert had 18 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in Friday’s win in Toronto.

    Since returning from his knee injury, Gobert has put up 15.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game, good for top-50ish over that five-game stretch. It’s not quite as high as his top-20 value last season, but he’s looking as good as he has all season and owners have to be happy he’s finally back on the court. His arrow is pointed up as long as the Jazz are competing for the last playoff spot.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert will miss Tuesday's game with the Jazz due to a sprained thumb.

    LeVert has gone 6-for-23 from the field in his last two games, so maybe this injury contributed to his struggles. This shouldn't be a long-term issue, but expect Taurean Prince and Garrett Temple to benefit while LeVert is sidelined.

  • Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward will have surgery on his fractured left hand on Monday afternoon.

    Hayward was off to a strong start this season before suffering the injury against the Spurs on Saturday. No timetable has been established yet, but obviously he will be looking at an extended absence. Robert Williams, Marcus Smart and Daniel Theis could be in line for more minutes, not to mention the returning Enes Kanter.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant and Brandon Clarke are expected to have their workloads increased over the course of the season.

    This isn't surprising, especially with Morant coming off offseason knee surgery and Clarke dealing with back soreness, but the fact that both rookies were given a rest day on the weekend raised some eyebrows. Hopefully those random absences are more of an early season problem. Both Clarke and Morant make for nice trade options as well, if you do believe that they'll finish the year strong on the back of extra minutes.

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Romeo Langford (illness) is probable for Monday's game.

    Langford has only seen action in three games this season but may come into minutes with Gordon Hayward out. He's someone to monitor in 20-team leagues and is already on the dynasty radar.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (sprained left ankle) was not able to practice on Monday.

    Lamb has been out for about a week now with no real signs of progress reported publicly. Aaron Holiday will continue to start, with minutes also opening up for TJ McConnell, Justin Holiday and Doug McDermott. There's no great pickup here in standard formats, but McConnell is the option for dimes, McDermott has the best scoring upside, Justin Holiday is the best bet for steals and threes, while Aaron offers the most balance as the player who is likely to chip in across the board.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner (right ankle sprain) went through drills in Monday's practice but didn't "go live."

    It means that Turner didn't complete a full practice and skipped the full-contact stuff, but he may still be able to play tomorrow if he responds well to today's work. A return looks to be coming soon, which will bump JaKarr Sampson from the starting five.

  • Goga Bitadze
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Goga Bitadze (concussion) was unable to practice on Monday.

    It's safe to rule Bitadze out of Indiana's next game, and there's no timetable for his return. While it'd be great to hold onto the talented rookie so we can see what his minutes look like when Myles Turner is also healthy, he's getting harder to hang onto if you don't have an open IR spot.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (sprained left index finger) says he'll play on Monday against the Jazz.

    Green missed all of last week with the injury but is returning relatively quickly considering initial reports had him potentially missing more time than that. Get him back into all lineups as one of the few bankable players left on the Warriors. It'll be interesting to see how his return affects Eric Paschall.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) will not play on Tuesday.

    Porter was last spotted using crutches to get around and the fact that he's being ruled out a day ahead of time doesn't bode well for a speedy return. He remains worth holding onto in all formats, despite his slow start to the year. Chandler Hutchison will continue to start in his absence.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen (sore oblique) sat out Monday's practice but will be good to go on Tuesday against the Knicks.

    Markkanen dealt with a vague "side" injury earlier in the year but didn't miss any time, so it sounds like something he'll just have to manage. Keep him in your lineups, as always.
