• Terrence Ross shot 8-for-11 from the field and 3-for-3 from the line for 22 points with three boards and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes off the bench in Monday’s 122-95 win over the Sixers.

    Another vintage Ross game is netting him inside the top-100 in value so far on the season, but we still don’t buy it. Ross is a decent source when you are desperate for a random 20-point outburst or need some 3-point shooting. He is a category specialist and should only be owned in deep leagues.

    Meanwhile, DeMarre Carroll played a healthy 21 minutes, scoring 10 points (4-for-5 FGs, 2-for-3 3PTs) with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks. It was a solid all around game in limited minutes for Carroll, which is what owners want to see. He is slowly getting healthy. Hang tight.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (ruptured right quad tendon) is expected to come off the bench and be on a minutes limit in his season debut against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    The Pacers are going to ease their star SG back into the lineup after missing just over a year of action due to the devastating injury he suffered last January. Oladipo should eventually supplant Jeremy Lamb take over the starting SG job where he'll pair with offseason acquisition Malcolm Brogdon in the backcourt.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner was sent home before Tuesday's practice as he continues to battle an illness.

    Turner missed Sunday's game against the Blazers and is in danger of missing Victor Oladipo's season debut as well. If Turner can't go, Domantas Sabonis and Goga Bitadze should see extra minutes.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon has two more steps to complete in the concussion protocol but stated that he is optimistic about returning to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    If Brogdon can go, we'll get a glimpse of what the Pacers backcourt will look like going forward, as Victor Oladipo will be making his season debut. Brogdon has battled a multitude of injuries this year, so it is not a given that he will return. If Brogdon can't go, T.J McConnell and Aaron Holiday would see extra minutes.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said on Tuesday that he isn't sure if Kyrie Irving (personal) will play against the Pistons on Wednesday, but the team is 'optimistic' that he will be out there after he returned to practice on Tuesday.

    Keep tabs on the situation as more information rolls in. If Irving sits this one out, Spencer Dinwiddie would start at PG again and maintain peak usage.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan (right middle finger dislocation) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    With Jordan back in the lineup, Jarrett Allen will take a hit as the two will presumably return to splitting C minutes. Nicolas Claxton had seen extra run the past few games, but he will be relegated to deeper-reserve status for this one.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (left knee) is being listed as questionable to play against the Suns on Tuesday.

    Porzingis has been a top-45 9/8 cat asset over the past week on the back of 14.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, 1.0 steals and 2.3 treys per game in 26.1 minutes. Although he has shot poorly, 37 percent from the floor, his ability to hit threes and contribute in stocks has been a boost to owners who were waiting for his return. If Porzingis is held out of the back-end of the back-to-back, look for Maxi Kleber, Dorian Finney-Smith, Justin Jackson and Willie Cauley-Stein to see extra minutes.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (right ankle soreness) is being listed as probable to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    The past two weeks have brought some struggles from the free-throw line with Doncic, as he is shooting just 57 percent on 8.3 attempts per game. Doncic has provided just top-85 value in 9 cats over this time, but if we take out the free-throw shooting he jumps back to top-10 value over this time period.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (bilateral Achilles soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    Nunn missed Monday's game as he has dealt with the soreness throughout the season. If Nunn can't go, Goran Dragic would again be in line for the start, while Tyler Herro would get extra minutes off the bench.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Porter Jr. returned to action on Monday after a multi-week absence, and the team may exercise caution on the back end of a back-to-back set. If Porter can go, he may slide into the starting SG, with Darius Garland (rest) out and Collin Sexton sliding over to PG. Keep an eye on this situation as we approach tip-off.

  • Darius Garland
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Darius Garland (rest) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans.

    With Garland sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back there will be more minutes to go around for Collin Sexton, Dante Exum, Matthew Dellavedova, and Kevin Porter Jr. (questionable). Sexton will likely slide over to PG, while Porter would be a very interesting streamer if he hadn't only returned from a multi-week absence on Monday.
