  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is questionable for Tuesda's game against the Clippers.

    Gibson has missed the last two games and looks like he may return again this season, though most fantasy owners shouldn't bother waiting around. Dario Saric will get most of the minutes at power forward with Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop helping out off the bench. Saric has the most upside but Tolliver should be a decent 3-point specialist in deeper formats.

  • Luol Deng - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) will miss Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Deng's been out for multiple weeks now and while the Wolves haven't shut him down officially, that looks like where we're headed.

  • Landry Shamet - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet (left ankle impingement) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wolves.

    Shamet left Sunday's game after slipping and hurting his ankle in the third quarter. Fantasy owners should start looking for an alternative source of 3-pointers just in case. The Clippers do need his spacing and have no incentive to shut him down at all, so hopefully there's a quick return coming. In the meantime they'll spread his minutes across their deep group of guards and wing players, so there's probably no clear pickup.

  • Elfrid Payton - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Elfrid Payton (bruised right wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Payton is a top-65 guy over the past two weeks and is basically good for assists and steals every now and then. This wrist injury has come out of nowhere and hopefully it's not too serious. Stay tuned for updates regarding his status for Tuesday's game.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - New Orleans Pelicans

    Anthony Davis (back) is considered to be probable on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

    Davis is basically on a 21-minute restriction and yet he's still a top-20 player over the past month. Feel free to lock him into your lineups as he should be able to keep it up this game.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (bruised right thigh) is questionable on Tuesday vs. the Magic.

    Winslow didn't practice on Monday and he is also dealing with an illness so it's going to be tough for him to play in Tuesday's game. He's missed his last five games and if he makes it a sixth then Goran Dragic and Derrick Jones Jr. should have the most to gain.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (right knee soreness) is doubtful for Monday's game and was unable to participate in morning shootaround.

    Noah left Saturday's game early with the injury after sitting out on Friday. He's been surprisingly effective this season but with concerns about his status, and likely at least one game on the sidelines this week, he makes for a weak fantasy play outside of very deep formats.

  • Rodney McGruder - G/F - Miami Heat

    Rodney McGruder (left knee soreness) did not practice on Monday.

    McGruder has missed the last four games and odds are it'll extend to at least five. His absence doesn't change anything in fantasy leagues.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (bruised right thigh) missed practice on Monday because of a case of food poisoning.

    Winslow did work out on Sunday to test his thigh, which is the more pressing issue for fantasy owners. It's going to be tough to plug Winslow into lineups this week since we still don't know a target date for his return, and he'll likely have to shake off some rust after missing the last five games. Goran Dragic will get extra run in the meantime while Derrick Jones Jr. is a stream for threes and blocks as the fill-in starter.

  • James Ennis III - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis (quad) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Ennis is the 245th-ranked player over the past two weeks and with Jimmy Butler back he shouldn't be owned in leagues. He's still playing 18.6 minutes per game but the production just won't be there.
