• Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker is good to play in back-to-backs moving forward.

    “Tony was great the last two games coming off the bench. He’s fresh and gives our second team a real lift. So far, it has worked out pretty well,” said Popovich. Parker has scored 12 points and 14 points in each of his last two outings which is promising. He’s only a deep league guy at this stage but the sense is that he’ll be reliable from here on out.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Šarić is listed as probable for Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Dario disappointed in the Suns' loss to the Kings on Tuesday and will look to rebound against a good matchup on Thursday. With Aron Baynes ruled out with a hip injury, Dario could see additional minutes as a result.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (hip contusion) and Cameron Johnson (knee soreness) are both probable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    With Baynes ruled out, the Suns are in need of big men. Kaminsky will likely continue to start while Johnson will continue to launch from distance. The Suns will look to rebound after a disappointing loss to the Kings.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White sprained his ankle during warmups but plans to play Wednesday against the Pistons.

    The Bulls are suffering multiple injuries as head coach Jim Boylen has decided to start someone who hasn't even been a part of the rotation this season, Shaquille Harrison. If White does play, he will continue to compete with Tomas Satoransky and Kris Dunn for minutes.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio is doubtful to face the Pelicans on Thursday due to back spasms.

    Rubio tried to give it a go on Tuesday but was unable to finish the game due to this injury. He has been a tremendous addition to this roster this season, running the offense with great success. Expect Tyler Johnson, Jevon Carter and Elie Okobo to see additional minutes for as long as Rubio is forced to sit out.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (right hip contusion) will not play in Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    Baynes has been instrumental to the Suns' early season success and they missed him on Tuesday as they lost to the Kings. Frank Kaminsky, Dario Sarić and Cheick Diallo will get more opportunity while Baynes remains out.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green will not play against the Mavs on Wednesday due to right heel soreness.

    Green was only deemed questionable a couple hours before game-time and will ultimately sit out the second half of their back-to-back. The Warriors aren't fighting for the playoffs this season so there was no reason to push their All-Star forward. Look for Ky Bowman to have more opportunity handling the ball with D'Angelo Russell already ruled out.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside (right hip) is listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Bucks.

    Whiteside has been the only healthy center for the Blazers after they saw youngster Zach Collins undergo shoulder surgery. He will continue to pile up points and rebounds as long as he is healthy and his percentages have improved season over season. If he is forced to miss this contest, Anthony Tolliver, Nassir Little and Skal Labissiere could see extra run.

  • Anfernee Simons
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons is questionable to face the Bucks with a left ankle injury.

    Simons got his first start of the season on Tuesday, replacing Damian Lillard (back spasms) in the starting lineup. He is only 20 years old and will continue to grow as an NBA player. Simons is currently one of the best scoring options on this Blazers roster, even when healthy. He is best left on the wire in standard leagues.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (back spasms) has been ruled out for Thursday's tilt vs. the Bucks.

    This will the second consecutive game that Lillard is forced to miss a result of his recent ailment. This is a situation to monitor going forward. Expect CJ McCollum to have increased value for as long as Lillard is out while Anfernee Simons, Kent Bazemore and Rodney Hood will continue to see more opportunity. It is worth noting that Simons is also questionable for Thursday with a left ankle injury.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White sprained his ankle in warmups and is a game-time decision ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons.

    White has had some very nice moments for the Bulls so far this season so it would be a shame to see him have to miss time as a result of this recent sprain. He is currently competing with Tomas Satoransky and Kris Dunn for minutes at point guard but is an intriguing rookie going forward.
