• Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert led the Jazz in scoring in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Rockets as he had 22 points and 12 rebounds on 8-of-10 shooting.

    He played 34 minutes and made all six of his attempts from the stripe. Gobert is the most reliable player on the Jazz, so expect much of the same from him throughout the entirety of the series.

Fantasy News

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are likely to start Avery Bradley, Danny Green and Javale McGee next to LeBron James and Anthony Davis against the Clippers on Tuesday, as Rajon Rondo (calf) is unlikely to play.

    Rondo is dealing with calf soreness, so Avery Bradley is likely to start. Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook should see a bump in minutes if Rondo sits out.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans will start Lonzo Ball, Jrue Holiday, JJ Redick, Brandon Ingram, and Derrick Favors against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    With Zion Williamson shelved, Redick has earned a starting spot in the good graces of coach Gentry. This bodes well for his playing time early in the season, which means he can be relied on as late-round value this season.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (left calf soreness) and Ty Jerome (right ankle sprain) have been downgraded to out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    The Suns' crop of backup point guards are looking at a few extra minutes each with Jerome out, though it's still too crowded to rely on anyone. Mikal Bridges is in line to see a heavier workload at both wing spots without the services of Johnson.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaquille Harrison (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    This is not a good sign for Harrison's chances of playing in the season opener. Harrison is off the fantasy radar as a deep reserve, even if he suits up.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby will join Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol in the starting unit for Tuesday's season-opening game against the Pelicans.

    VanVleet, who was in line for mnites either way, gets a boost in value now that he's the confirmed starter for the Raptors. Norman Powell could still push for 20+ minutes as the first guard/wing off the bench.

  • Andre Iguodala
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Andre Iguodala remains away from the team and will not play in Wednesday's season opener.

    The Grizzlies remain steadfast in their desire to trade Iguodala rather than buy him out. This saga may drag out to the trade deadline. Iguodala can be left on the waiver wire while this situation plays itself out.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. is being listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Hornets.

    Carter is ready to roll for the season opener and has the potential for a big season if he can stay healthy. That has proven to be a big if so far in his young career.

  • Andre Roberson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Andre Roberson (left knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Roberson has been ramping up his workload recently and is getting closer to a return, but it won't come in the opener. Roberson is a plus defender but can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Nassir Little (left ankle sprain) is available to play in Wednesday's tilt against the Nuggets.

    Little doesn't hold much value as he battles for backup minutes with a host of players.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside (left ankle sprain) is good to go for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Whiteside practiced without limitations on Monday, and now we have official confirmation that he will play. Whiteside has proven to be elite in rebounds, blocks, and field goal percentage in limited minutes, and has the potential for a career-year with the shortage of options in the Blazers frontcourt.
