• Russell Westbrook
    G, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook couldn't hit the barn in Saturday's win over the Jazz, making just 3-of-17 shots for eight points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and six turnovers.

    Westbrook's game has always been predicated on other-worldly explosion and the fear has been that once that slides, he doesn't have the BBIQ to handle the massive usage he demands. He has been a top 15-30 (8/9 cat) value on the season.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) is available to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Rivers will return after missing the past two games. Ben McLemore and Eric Gordon will lose a few minutes in this one. Rivers can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (right quad contusion) is being downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    With Johnson out, there will be more time on the wings for Mikal Bridges, among others. Johnson is a 3-point streamer when he is healthy, but his role doesn't call for much more at this time.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris (ankle) will be available to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Morris is likely to get the unenviable assignment of guarding LeBron James at less than full strength. Morris has put up top-80 value on the year. Play him as you normally would.

  • Michael Porter Jr.
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Michael Porter Jr. (back tightness) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Gary Harris is still questionable for this one, but not likely to play according to reports. Malik Beasley is in line for a significant role and is a name to think about adding if the injuries to Porter and Harris linger.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside (groin contusion) is being listed as probable to play on Thursday against the Mavs.

    There doesn't seem to be anything here. Continue to fire up the big man in all leagues as he has simply been a beast in fantasy this season.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Cavs.

    McCollum has missed the past two games but was seen getting in some work after Tuesday's practice. His status is genuinely up in the air at this point. Continue to monitor the situation and fire him up on a three-game slate if he is ready to go. Anfernee Simons would again benefit if McCollum can't go.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Brandon Knight (left knee soreness) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Knight was playing a bit more before getting injured but is only a bit part of the Cavs rotation when the team is healthy. He can be ignored in fantasy circles.

  • John Henson
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    John Henson (lower back soreness) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

    Henson is a deep-reserve as long as the frontcourt is mostly healthy. He is a blocks specialist only in deeper-leagues.

  • Jordan Bone
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Jordan Bone is being listed as available to play against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Bone does not hold any fantasy value.

  • Kent Bazemore
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Kent Bazemore and Anthony Tolliver are available to play for the Kings in Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    The trade that sent Bazemore and Tolliver to Sacramento has been finalized, and both are ready to go for their new team. Neither has much fantasy value in their new situations.
