• Luol Deng - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Luol Deng said that he suffered a strained Achilles on Wednesday and will not require further testing but his status after tonight is uncertain.

    It's good to hear that the injury is nothing serious, especially for the handful of managers who actually own Deng in very deep leagues. The Wolves have little incentive to rush the 33-year-old Deng back, so this should bode well for some quality minutes for Anthony Tolliver moving forward.

Fantasy News

  • Derrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz

    Derrick Favors has right hamstring tightness and has been ruled out for the rest of Monday night's game against the Wizards.

    With Favors out, Jae Crowder should get some additional run. Hamstring issues can linger, so keep Crowder in mind for the Jazz's next game on Wednesday.

  • Nerlens Noel - F/C - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel (left quad contusion) was a late scratch on Monday vs. the Heat.

    The news came out too late to make any moves, but Markieff Morris should see some additional minutes with Noel missing the game.

  • Allen Crabbe - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Allen Crabbe (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday night's game vs. the Kings.

    Crabbe missed the last two games and Caris LeVert started in his place with per-game averages of 9.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.0 steals.

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

    Derrick Jones Jr. will start again on Monday night vs. the Thunder.

    Last night, also with Justise Winslow out, Jones contributed a little bit of everything, as he tends to do. If you needs some peripheral stats, he makes a good upside start tonight.

  • Luka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (right knee contusion) will play on Monday night vs. the Pelicans.

    He's seems to play through anything he can. Get him in your lineup if he wasn't already and enjoy the ride.

  • Thon Maker - F - Detroit Pistons

    Thon Maker, not Jon Leuer, started at power forward on Monday night.

    The Pistons changed their starters at the last second but Maker was always the preferred play anyway.

  • David Nwaba - G - Cleveland Cavaliers

    David Nwaba, not Marquese Chriss, started on Monday against the Pistons.

    The Cavs pulled the old switcheroo at the last second. There's not much to see here for fantasy purposes, and those of you who streamed Chriss or rolled the dice in DFS should know that he'll still get good minutes with the Cavs so shorthanded.

  • Marquese Chriss - F - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Marquese Chriss will start at power forward on Monday night with Kevin Love (back) out.

    Chriss will match up with Jon Leuer as the Pistons have chosen to rest Blake Griffin. The best-case scenario is that Chriss comes through with some defensive stats and maybe a 3-pointer, but he's only a streaming option or an add in very deep leagues.

  • Jon Leuer - F - Detroit Pistons

    Jon Leuer will start in place of Blake Griffin (rest) on Monday against the Cavs.

    Leuer has appeared in five games since the start of February so there's no reason to look his way outside the deepest of leagues, even with the nice opportunity in a good matchup. We're still more interested in Thon Maker for this one.

  • Dwyane Wade - G - Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade (bruised right hip) is available on Monday against the Thunder.

    Wade was initially probable and played despite a doubtful tag on Sunday, so this is not surprising. He's fine to use if you'd normally have him in your lineups.
