• Vince Carter
    G/F, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter (right knee contusion) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Heat.

    Carter has been getting more and more valuable over the past two weeks as he's inside the top-180 over his past four games. He only played 12 minutes in his last outing but that's only because he played 45 minutes in Friday's 4OT game vs. the Bulls. He should be ready to play tonight so if you need to insert him in your lineup, feel free to do so.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris (back spasms) is available for Thursday's matchup vs. the Nuggets.

    Morris missed the last two contests but will return on Thursday as the Knicks will be healthier than they have been in a while. He is leading the Knicks in scoring at 18.7 points per game. Kevin Knox will likely head back to the bench with Morris' return.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House will come off the bench in Thursday's game vs. the Raptors after recovering from an illness.

    House has only been healthy enough to play in four of the last 10 games but he will make his return on Thursday. Ben McLemore will likely start again while House works his way back from an illness. If House happened to be dropped in any of your leagues, he needs to be added immediately. McLemore and Austin Rivers will both see their roles reduced with the return of House.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard is not listed on the latest injury report for Friday's game vs. the Pacers after missing the last contest with a knee injury.

    Langston Galloway seemed to be the main beneficiary of Kennard's absence even though Svi Mykhailiuk got the start. Make sure to check tomorrow's news to confirm that Kennard will play but all signs point to the sharp-shooter returning on Friday.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green is officially questionable for Friday's tilt vs. the Bucks as he nurses a bruised tailbone.

    With the Clippers near full strength, Green is better left on the wire in standard leagues. However, on the season, he is producing top 177/163 per-game value in 8/9 cat leagues.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton will be a game-time decision for Thursday's contest vs. the Nuggets but coach David Fizdale told the media that he will come off the bench if he does end up playing.

    Payton has missed the last 17 games after earning the starting point guard role. If he does play, he will come off the bench and compete for minutes with Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr.. It is worth noting that Ntilikina is also questionable for the game.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (illness) has been downgraded from available to probable for Thursday's matchup against the Knicks.

    Murray only appeared on the injury report this afternoon so it is definitely a situation to monitor. It appears that he caught some sort of sickness in the last day. Check for updates prior to their 7:30 ET tip-off.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson is officially listed as probable ahead of Friday's game against the Magic.

    Thompson has been averaging a double-double through the first 20 games of this season and there is no reason to believe that this trend won't continue. So far this year, Thompson is inside the top 100 in per-game value for both 8 and 9 cat leagues.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell (left finger sprain) is probable to face the Bulls on Friday.

    Russell made his return on Wednesday night and had a very nice ball-game in only 25 minutes. At times, it looked as if his hand was in discomfort but he played through it. Continue to monitor the situation as we will learn more during Friday's shootaround.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragić (right groin strain) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Wizards.

    With Dragić ruled out and Justise Winslow (lower back strain) questionable, the Heat could find themselves short-handed against the Wizards. Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson could all see more opportunity while Dion Waiters might finally get his first minutes of the season.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (lower back strain) is officially questionable for Friday's contest vs. the Wizards.

    Since returning from injury, Winslow has seen 29+ minutes in four of the last five contests. The exception was the blowout victory over the Warriors. It is very encouraging to see the opportunity for Winslow but in the last week he is producing value just inside the top 200.
