• Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Willie Cauley-Stein had just two points on 1-of-7 field goals in 21 minutes of a blowout loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

    WCS added five rebounds and nothing else in this one. He's provided late-round value this season, but it's not trending in the right direction. It'll be interesting to see where he ends up next year, as his value could drop quite a bit.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic may be able to return "within a couple of weeks," according to a report from ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

    MacMahon adds that Doncic is likely to miss Dallas' next four games. Jalen Brunson started the second half in Doncic's place last night and had a strong game overall with 17 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 34 minutes, and he's the likely add in 12-team formats. Tim Hardaway Jr. will take on more of a scoring load and should be added where available as well. Kristaps Porzingis should get a big usage boost, while other players like Dorian Finney-Smith, Delon Wright, Seth Curry and JJ Barea will all get more minutes, though Wright is the only one of that bunch with enough upside to stand out in 12-team leagues. Doncic did not travel with the Mavs to Milwaukee and there is hope that he returns around Christmas.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid is being listed as doubtful with an upper respiratory illness for Sunday's matchup with the Nets.

    Embiid had been rolling after playing really well in both games of a back-to-back set, so this obviously very disappointing for his owners. Al Horford (knee & hamstring soreness) is still listed as questionable for this one as well, putting the Sixers at risk of being incredibly thin in the middle. If neither are able to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn could be looking at a ton of minutes.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall (sore left hip) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Kings.

    He went into Friday's game listed as doubtful, so while this is an upgrade for him, it still remains to be seen if he is able to suit up. If he can't go expect Marquese Chriss to continue picking up extra slack.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James (elbow soreness) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Hawks.

    James said he hurt his elbow against the Heat in Friday's victory, but didn't seem to indicate that it was something that would keep him out of the lineup. If James were to miss time there would obviously be plenty of usage to go around with no one clear beneficiary. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (knee soreness, hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Brooklyn Nets.

    It would be Horford's third straight missed game if he is unable to suit up. Mike Scott should continue to start in is absence while Matisse Thybulle could also see more minutes in smaller lineups.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder knocked in four threes on Saturday on his way to scoring 22 points with five rebounds and four assists.

    Schroder is just outside the top-120 on the season but is trending up over the past two weeks, averaging 21.0 points, 1.9 assists and 2.4 threes on .509 shooting from the floor. That's good for top-50 value over that stretch. Schroder's shooting will cool down and he will probably settle in around the top-100, but he is a strong hold in standard leagues and has upside if Chris Paul is traded or rests later in the season.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton was his old reliable, thrilling self on Saturday as he posted 18 points (7-of-14 shooting) with six rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and two steals.

    Barton has been the Nuggets' pillar of stability when it comes to the arena of fantasy basketball. He's as steady as they come and is locked in to flirt with top-50 value while sporting a top-75 floor all season long.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams double-doubled with 18 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks in 31 minutes on Saturday.

    Adams is on a roll over his past seven games, averaging 15.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks while shooting .683 from the field. That's good for top-20 value over that stretch. Owners should try to sell high on Adams as the block numbers are unsustainable and his ROS outlook is murky with the possibility of being traded. Its hard to imagine him going to a better situation than OKC.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic was fantastic in Saturday's 110-102 win over the Thunder, triple-doubling for 28 points on 11-of-14 shooting with 14 rebounds, 12 assists, three treys and one steal.

    Jokic is trending up and fast. His buy-low window was shut with extreme prejudice with this favorable-matchup performance. He's ramping up closer to the top-15 zone of last season with each passing game.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant started for Paul Millsap (right quadriceps strain) on Saturday and delivered as expected with 13 points (4-of-8 shooting), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    It was just a matter of time until this scenario emerged and now here we are. Grant is a must-grab guy, while Millsap is sidelined. He's able to give your fantasy team a dazzling 1-1-1 production with other solid counting stats on a nightly basis.
