• Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Brad Stevens said that he hopes Aron Baynes (left foot contusion) will be day-to-day after this week.

    Baynes doesn't play much and Daniel Theis is the beneficiary but there isn't much impact in most fantasy leagues here.

  • Allonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks

    The Knicks are set to re-evaluate Allonzo Trier (strained left calf) on Wednesday.

    Trier was scoring 14.0 ppg in 25.4 mpg during the dozen games before going down with the strained calf. While Trier is only a streamer with low-end value, his return would mainly be a dent into the minutes that Damyean Dotson and Emmanuel Mudiay have been seeing.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - New York Knicks

    The Knicks are set to re-evaluate Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back), Allonzo Trier (strained left calf) and Frank Ntilikina (sore groin)
    on Wednesday.

    We'll see what the Knicks determine tomorrow when they re-evaluate DSJ, Trier and Ntilikina, but this isn't the best news to hear for owners of Emmanuel Mudiay and Damyean Dotson. Both Mudiay and Dotson have been seeing minutes in the 30's the last few weeks, but the playing times of each would take a hit if the other guys can return.

  • Darren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers

    Darren Collison (right quad contusion) returned to practice on Tuesday and expects to play in Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    This is great news for the Pacers who can't seem to buy a victory on the road lately. Collison's return will send Cory Joseph back to the bench and take a deep hit at Tyreke Evans' value. Given Evans' recent play, he is still worth watching to see how he is used now that Collison is returning.

  • Kevin Knox - F - New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox (sprained right ankle) participates in non-contact drills on Tuesday but is still looking unlikely for Thursday's game against the Raptors.

    Knox doesn't look like he will miss too much time if any, but any missed time this late in the season hurts. If Knox can't go, Mario Hezonja would see even more minutes, while Lance Thomas and Noah Vonleh, if he can return, could see some more time as well.

  • Harry Giles III - F/C - Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles III (left thigh contusion) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    With Giles out, Marvin Bagley will get some extra minutes as a backup 5 and Nemanja Bjelica looks more likely to continue his recent play. Bjelica has been a top-60 9-cat player over the past week and is a worthy streamer against the Mavs.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is now considered doubtful to play the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Gibson looks likely to miss a third-straight game. In his absence, we can expect Dario Saric, Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop to see some extra minutes. Dieng has the highest upside, especially for defensive stats, but Saric is worthy of a stream while he should see around 30 mpg.

  • Gerald Green - G/F - Houston Rockets

    Gerald Green will remain sidelined for the next 7 to 10 days in order to recover from a strained adductor he sustained last week.

    Green is a nice source for points and triples but with the latest news he is now a cut candidate with the Rockets playing only three times this week. Austin Rivers and Danuel House should pick up the slack for him but it’s really the James Harden show in Houston these days.

  • Miles Plumlee - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Miles Plumlee will have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and he will miss the rest of the season.

    Plumlee already had another procedure earlier this year but unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to recover yet. He has no fantasy value whatsoever.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has officially cleared the NBA Concussion Protocol and is expected to play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    MKG will return after being sidelined for the last three games. He is still expected to play behind Miles Bridges and Frank Kaminsky so he isn’t a reliable fantasy contributor at this point.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum is still suffering from a virus and doesn’t anticipate playing on Tuesday against the Spurs.

    Batum said that he has lost eight pounds since getting sick and it makes sense for him to not being able to return to the court just yet. Dwayne Bacon should continue to start and is someone to consider in deeper formats as he scored 20 points in Sunday’s win.
