• Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting with eight rebounds, six assists and two triples in Monday's game against the Suns.

    Murray is the clear No. 2 guy in Denver behind Nikola Jokic (four points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block) and leads a high powered Nuggets offense which has given him a clear green light. Gary Harris (18 points, two triples, two rebounds, two assists and a steal) is going to have to battle his way into production as the Nuggets have plenty of guards that can play.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (knee contusion) is in the starting lineup vs. the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Saric has been on a slump. Hopefully, the absence of Aron Baynes (right hip contusion) gets him going.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor is out for Thursday's game against the Suns with a sprained left ankle.

    Okafor is out again in this game, which is a shame because there's opportunity in the front court for the Pelicans with Derrick Favors hobbled. Jaxson Hayes should have a really good shot to show what he's made of.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) will be active off the bench against the Suns on Thursday.

    Ball has missed the last six games with this injury so he will naturally be limited in his first game back. This will likely mute the excitement for Nickeil Alexander-Walker going forward if Ball can get back on the ball.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    Rubio has been struggling with this back issue since missing Monday's game. With Rubio inactive, Tyler Johnson will start in his place. Devin Booker will be a primary ball handler and we'll see some extra run out of Jevon Carter.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green is questionable for Friday's game against Utah with a sore right heel.

    This is the same issue that cost Green the game on Wednesday. The Ky Bowman hype train rolls on and the Warriors have one foot on the golf course at this point it seems.

  • Trevor Ariza
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Trevor Ariza did not travel with the team on their current road trip and will be out against the Nets on Friday as a result.

    It is unclear as to why Ariza didn't travel with the team but it is possible that something is going on with his role within the rotation. Ariza is currently playing only 20.6 minutes per game, the lowest mark since the 2007-08 season.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon's MRI revealed that he suffered a right ankle contusion and his return will depend on how he responds to treatment.

    Gordon got away from Wednesday's game without suffering a severe ankle injury. It is unclear how many games he will be forced to miss but he has already been ruled out of Saturday's contest vs. the Pacers. Al-Farouq Aminu, Khem Birch and Mo Bamba will see additional time with Gordon and Nikola Vučević (ankle) ruled out.

    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon will not play on Saturday vs. the Pacers due to a right ankle contusion he suffered during Wednesday's game.

    Gordon's diagnosis seems to be slightly more positive than teammate Nikola Vučević but he will still be forced to miss time as a result. It is unclear at this point what his timetable to return will be. This is a situation to monitor if Gordon is on your fantasy team. Expect Al-Farouq Aminu, Mo Bamba and Khem Birch to see extra time during his absence.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside has been downgraded to out for Thursday's contest vs. the Bucks.

    The Blazers will be in desperate need of frontcourt help with Whiteside, Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkić all ruled out. Nassir Little, Skal Labissiere, Anthony Tolliver, Mario Hezonja and Carmelo Anthony could all see extra minutes as a result while Little is most likely their best defensive big left. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez could have great fantasy lines against this frontcourt.

  • Anfernee Simons
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons will play Thursday vs. the Bucks after previously being listed as questionable with a left ankle injury.

    With Damian Lillard ruled out, Simons will see an increased role within the offense and could be an interesting DFS play depending on his price tag. He doesn't contribute too much outside of scoring categories but he has shown that he can put the ball in the hoop.
