• Tristan Thompson
    F/C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson only scored four points with two rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes in a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

    He has been a walking double-double this season and is just outside the top-100, but a performance like this one definitely hurts for fantasy owners. Every starter out-rebounded him as this was a letdown game for Thompson. Expect a bounce back performance next time out there.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (sore shoulder) will return to action on Friday and will not be on a minutes limit.

    He took a day to rest and heal up his minor aches and pains. It appears that the trainers have given AD the green light to play as much as the coach deems necessary, so he should once again be a dominant force in real and fantasy basketball tonight.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon has been diagnosed with a sore lower back and is questionable to return to Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Ouch. The Pacers are banged up with both Myles Turner and Victor Oladipo still out of commission. If Brogdon misses time, expect Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell to split those PG minutes.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell (hip flexor strain) is done for the night after being diagnosed with a hip flexor strain on Friday.

    Snell only played nine minutes in this one and had only one rebound to his name. Langston Galloway started in his place in the second half.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon headed back to the locker room in Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    It's unclear as to what the matter is right now, but hopefully it's nothing serious. Brogdon has been smashing his ADP to smithereens so far this season.

  • Vince Carter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter (personal) will not play for the Hawks on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

    Carter has been a low-end deep-league play so far this season and his roster spot can be freed up for streaming purposes in all formats.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley is still dealing with left calf soreness and is questionable vs. the Hawks on Saturday.

    With both Landry Shamet (sprained ankle) and Pat Bev at out, expect to see some more of Terrence Mann and Rodney McGruder.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Hawks.

    He already missed one end of a B2B, so this potentially "extra" day for left knee injury management is a bit of a concern. DNPs are the only bane to his otherwise stellar fantasy production this season.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) will be out for Friday's matchup with the Wizards.

    Napier's sixth straight absence from the lineup due to the hamstring issue. It looks like Jarrett Culver is going to be tough to surpass whenever Napier is ready to return to the rotation. He is not much of an option beyond deep-leagues when he does get back to playing.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony is not expected to take the floor for the Blazers before Tuesday against the Pelicans.

    The Blazers presumably signed Melo to give him some actual minutes, as a result it should not take him too long to get into the lineup and take on his fully realized role. If Anthony can follow Hassan Whiteside's lead and become another Damian Lillard teammate success story he may have some fantasy value for standard leagues, but he is more likely to be a deep-league option. If you have some dead weight to drop there is no harm in scooping Melo up for one last ride.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Due to a right shoulder impingement, Kyrie Irving is listed as questionable for Saturday's tilt with the Bulls.

    This injury originally was flagged on Thursday and had Kyrie questionable. His status is the same for Saturday as it was on Thursday and hopefully he only feels better with another night of rest on Friday. Although the Nets have not looked so good of late, Irving is continuing to rack up plenty of stats, and you can continue deploying him with confidence when healthy.
