• Tyler Johnson
    G, Miami Heat

    Tyler Johnson was initially questionable for Wednesday because of left calf soreness but ended up playing 28 minutes and delivering 15 points, two assists and two threes.

    Johnson's healthy. There were some concerns about whether or not he'd actually see the floor tonight after he wasn't in the starting lineup, but Johnson should be fine to deploy in deep leagues going forward. Wayne Ellington scored 13 points with two steals and three triples in 33 minutes in another start. He'll be a fine 3-point specialist as long as he's in the rotation. All that said, it's worth mentioning that these totals might've been inflated by Dwyane Wade's absence.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Allen Crabbe (illness) told the media after the morning shootaround that he is ready to make his Wolves debut in Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Crabbe was recently traded for Jeff Teague and Treveon Graham but wasn't well enough to suit up Saturday's game. Crabbe can space the floor, but his role is uncertain in the Wolve rotation as of now.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Monday's matchup against the Sixers.

    Irving has dealt with a myriad of injuries this season, with the big one being the shoulder, which has caused him to miss 26 of a possible 41 games this season. Irving is putting up top-175/190 value on the season, vaulting up to top-4/6 value on a per-game basis for when he does suit up. Check back closer to game time for official confirmation on his playing status.

  • Anzejs Pasecniks
    C, Washington Wizards

    Anzejs Pasecniks (left ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    With the Wizards starting to get some of their frontcourt players back from injury, Pasecniks' role has been diminished even when he is healthy enough to go. He can be left on waiver wires.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae (ankle) will play against the Pistons on Monday.

    This confirms that McRae not being placed on Sunday's injury report was no mistake. The injury looked bad, but this is great news for anyone who has been riding the hot stretch from McRae. He has been averaging 18.1 points, 4.6 rebounds 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.1 treys over the past month. Feel free to get him back into your lineups.

  • Chandler Parsons
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports!, Chandler Parsons suffered suffered “multiple severe and permanent injuries including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and torn labrum,” after being hit by another driver being charged with a DUI from the incident and his basketball future is unclear.

    Our prayers go up for Parsons and his family. Parsons was not a part of the Hawks rotation before this devastating accident and can be left on the waiver wire. It also sounds like the matter will be litigated in court, so we should not expect Parsons back in the NBA any time soon. This is just the latest setback in the unfortunate career of Parsons, but hopefully he can regain his prior physical condition after an arduous, years-long rehabilitation process for his numerous knee injuries throughout his career. We hope for a speedy recovery for Parsons.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carden Edwards will not be active for Monday's game against the Lakers despite being called up to the main roster.

    With Brown off the injury report and Kemba Walker expecting to play, the Celtics don't need for Edwards at this time. He is well off the fantasy radar.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) will be available to play for Monday's game against the Lakers.

    Brown missed the last couple of games dealing with the thumb injury, but is good to go for this primetime matchup with the Lakers. Feel free to plug Brown, who has been a top-70 player in 9/8 cat leagues this season, back into all lineups.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) said that he is feeling better and expects to play against the Lakers on Monday.

    If Walker is to be believed, he will end up missing just one game with the knee injury. Be sure to check back closer to game time to confirm Walker's status. If He were to sit, Brad Wanamaker and Grant Williams would get extra run, while Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward facilitate more of the offense.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis will return from his gluteal contusion on Monday versus the Celtics.

    Davis' sore butt cost him five games, but he returns against one of the best possible matchups in the Celtics. It comes as a slight surprise given that he only took limited part in practice on Friday and then didn't practice at all over the weekend. It's unlikely that Davis is eased back, but as the best per-minute producer in the history of fantasy basketball, he's an obvious start tonight regardless of any hypothetical restrictions. The slice of the pie for Javale McGee and Dwight Howard shrinks with this news, and expect the two centers to cancel each other's value just as they had been doing prior to Davis' butt bruise.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (right ankle sprain) recently shared that his rehab has been progressing well and that he anticipates a return to the court on the early side of his initial 4-to-6 week timetable.

    Carter was initially injured on January 6th, so an early return would mean he plays shortly before the All-Star Game weekend. When asked when he'd expect to return relative to his timetable, Carter responded, “Definitely closer to the four. My progress has been really good lately, so definitely closer to the four than the six.’’ This is an encouraging sign, but keep in mind players have an incentive to feel optimistic about their rehab and the Bulls could still choose to hold him out through the All-Star weekend given if it gives him a few extra days to heal. Carter was hovering around top 100 value on the season, but his upside warrants rostering, particularly in leagues with an IL spot.
