• Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau suggested on Wednesday that Shabazz Muhammad could earn minutes at shooting guard, small forward and power forward this season.

    “He’s a terrific athlete,” Thibodeau said. “He’s strong. There’s no reason why he can’t be a great defender.”  While it will be interesting to see how Muhammad fits into Thibodeau’s rotation, he’ll likely be on the outside looking in on a consistent role.  He still has work to do before becoming a factor in standard leagues.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (bilateral Achilles soreness) is questionable for Monday's contest.

    Nunn was unable to play on Friday, leaving the door open for more contributions from Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro. The rookie has averaged 16.2 points and 3.5 assists, ranking him in the top 60 leaguewide in both categories.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (right ankle sprain) is considered questionable for Monday's game.

    Butler injured his ankle on Friday. Despite some mediocre shooting of late, he has delivered 20.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. Tyler Herro could be in for a big night against the Magic considering all the injuries for the Heat.

  • Bruno Fernando
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Bruno Fernando (left calf strain) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Fernando enjoyed a big game on Saturday but was forced to leave with the calf injury. He's not worth owning in most leagues.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Elie Okobo and Mikal Bridges are likely to see bumps in usage if Rubio is unavailable. Rubio went just 1-of-10 from the field on Sunday but ranks fourth in the league with 8.8 assists per game.

  • Javonte Green
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Javonte Green (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Green has averaged 4.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in his last ten games. That makes him a useful role player for the Celtics but not worth owning in fantasy circles. Brad Wanamaker could see a bit more action if Green doesn't play.

  • Enes Kanter
    C, Boston Celtics

    Enes Kanter (right hip contusion) will be held out of Tuesday's game.

    Kanter has missed two consecutive games, and Tuesday will mark the third. The production of Jayson Tatum and Daniel Theis have not left him with a useful role in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game.

    Tatum hasn't played since Wednesday. Daniel Theis has assumed his spot in the starting lineup, scoring a total of 31 points with 15 rebounds over those two games.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook will be held out of Monday's game for rest purposes.

    Westbrook has been sitting out one half of back-to-backs, so this isn't surprising. Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers should get all the minutes they can handle against the Jazz.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is considered doubtful for Monday's game.

    Capela experienced heel issues in December and they are flaring up again. Isaiah Hartenstein should see an expanded role until he returns.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (left calf bruise) is listed as questionable for Monday's game.

    Dragic missed Friday's matchup with the Clippers. Tyler Herro played a whopping 40 minutes in that game and could be used a lot again depending on who is able to suit up against the Magic.
