• Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson (foot) has been ruled out of Friday's game.

    Thompson returned to practice over a week ago but hasn't been able to participate since and there remains no timetable for his return. Marquese Chriss and Ante Zizic (questionable for tomorrow with a concussion) will hold back-end appeal but Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Love are the only frontcourt options here that you should feel comfortable with.

    Augustine has been rolling, coming into today's game with top-60 value in 9-cat over his last five games. If you can survive his paltry two games this week, he' set for four games next week for those of you in H2H.

  • Greg Monroe - C - Boston Celtics

    The Celtics have signed Greg Monroe to a 10-day deal according to Shams Charania.

    This is just for emergency depth and it might not even stick. You can leave Moose on the wire.

  • Harry Giles III - F/C - Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Suns.

    Giles has been getting better all season and flashed his potential when Marvin Bagley was out. Now that Bagley is back, Giles' upside is capped.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (groin soreness) and Sterling Brown (wrist sprain) will both be available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.

  • Kenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Kenneth Faried (sore left knee) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Outside of deeper leagues, Faried likely won’t get enough run while Clint Capela is healthy to make an impact.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will get another start for Kyle Lowry (sprained right ankle) on Friday vs. the Thunder.

    VanVleet almost always produces in a big way when starting and he’ll continue to do so until Lowry returns which is expected “sometime next week” according to coach Nick Nurse.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (head) will play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

    Love banged his head on Wednesday and left the game for good early in the third quarter but he has avoided any concussion symptoms so make sure he's in your lineup.

  • Joakim Noah - PF/C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (knee) is not expected to play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Since it’s the front end of a back-to-back set for the Grizzlies, there’s no reason to push their old vets like Noah and Mike Conley. Ivan Rabb and Bruno Coboclo have a chance to step up but neither has been very consistent and it doesn’t look like Noah will be out for long.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) and Kadeem Allen (illness) will both be available to play on Friday.

    Neither is a particularly inspired play playing distributor behind Emmanuel Mudiay and both can be left on the wire.
