• Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out on Monday.

    Jones was upgraded to doubtful for this game but it still seems improbable that we see him back on the floor before the All-Star break. With Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose both back, Jones only has deep-league and handcuff appeal.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward (right ankle sprain) will not play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Hayward wasn't expected to play, and here's confirmation. He sustained the injury in a one-on-one game over the break and it isn't expected to keep him out for long. It's a tough break considering Hayward had strung together some nice games, so hopefully he can pick up where he left off.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr. - F - Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre is expected to move into the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

    No exact word on who will be moving to the bench, but it sounds like Josh Jackson is the guy. Oubre has been must-start since joining Phoenix but this might give him a small boost even further up the rankings. His shooting percentage won't always be pretty but the other numbers will be there. There's no word on if this arrangement will last once T.J. Warren (right ankle) returns, but Oubre shouldn't lose much value as a result either way.

  • De'Anthony Melton - G - Phoenix Suns

    De'Anthony Melton (sprained right ankle) is expected to arrive at the arena in time to play in Thursday's game against the Cavs.

    Melton is ready to return from his injury after nine games on the sidelines but he'll need to rush to meet with the Suns after a quick G-League assignment. Melton's appeal took a big hit when the Suns acquired Tyler Johnson but he'll still be a deep-league option for steals.

  • Derrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. (right knee bone bruises) is on the active roster for Thurday's game against the Sixers.

    That doesn't mean Jones will play, as Erik Spoelstra has been very forward about the Heat's returning injured players needing some more work before getting on the court. Jones' stat set is extremely fun and he'd be a nice target if the playing time is there. We'll see.

  • Goran Dragic - G - Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (right knee) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Sixers.

    Dragic is close to a return but the Heat want him to get some more work in before they put him back into game action. If you've been thinking about stashing him away this looks like your last chance.

  • Boban Marjanovic - C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Boban Marjanovic is in the starting lineup on Thursday night, taking Joel Embiid's spot at center.

    Embiid is battling left knee soreness and has been shut down for a week, so Boban will get a chance to shine. If you've been looking for a reason to get him into your lineups, it might not ever get any better than this. Just keep your fingers crossed and hope that he's able to stay on the floor.

  • Tony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Tony Parker (back strain) is no longer on the injury report.

    Consider Parker good to go for Friday's tilt with the Wizards, not that fantasy owners should care.

  • Tomas Satoransky - G/F - Washington Wizards

    Tomas Satoransky (personal) has been removed from the injury report and will play on Friday against the Hornets.

    Satoransky missed two games before the break but wasn't expected to miss any time beyond that. Make sure he's in your lineups.

  • Troy Brown Jr. - F - Washington Wizards

    Troy Brown Jr. (left ankle sprain) will not play on Friday, as he's currently with the Capital City Go-Go of the G-League.

    Brown was expected to return sometime shortly after the All-Star break but the Wizards will let him work back into shape at the lower level, at least for one night. He might hit the radar if injuries strike or Washington fades in the playoff hunt, but odds are that he's completely irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (back contusion) is not on the injury report and will play on Friday against the Magic.

    Dunn went through Wednesday's practice and was expected to suit up tomorrow, and here's some early confirmation. He's good to get back into all lineups.
