• Zach LaVine
    G, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine scored 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, nine dimes, two blocks and two triples on Monday against the Bucks.

    LaVine didn't have his shot tonight, but he contributed elsewhere to make up the lost ground. Now that he has capable scorers alongside him we've seen his propensity to dish out the ball more.

  • 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.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge is questionable ahead of Friday's matchup against the Kings as he nurses a sore thigh.

    If Aldridge ends up sitting out Friday, it will mark his third consecutive absence. Jakob Pötl and Trey Lyles will likely see additional minutes if he does sit out.

  • Ian Mahinmi
    C, Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi (strained right Achilles) will be available for Thursday's game against the Sixers

    Mahinmi hasn't played so far this season but with the injury to Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction), the Wizards will be pleased to have another big body to eat up some minutes. Mahinmi could have some sneaky value in the short-term but will have a difficult matchup on Thursday going against Joel Embiid and Al Horford of the Sixers.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been upgraded to available for Thursday's matchup against the Sixers.

    Wagner could be in line for a increased role for the Wizards while Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) remains out. His main competition will be Ian Mahinmi, who is available for Thursday's game after not playing a single minute all season. Wagner is a must-own fantasy asset across all fantasy formats.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart is officially questionable for Friday's tilt vs. the Nuggets due to a bruised abdomen.

    Smart was dealing with an illness that he appears to have gotten past. Now he appears to be dealing with the injury that forced him to leave
    Sunday's game early. It appears that Grant Williams will start if Smart misses Friday's contest while Semi Ojeleye, Brad Wanamaker and Carsen Edwards could all see some additional run.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (right hand fracture) is available for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Sumner averaged a career-high 22.3 minutes per game prior to suffering a fracture to his right hand. After missing the past 18 games, it is unclear how many minutes he will receive. It is definitely a situation to monitor as he will be competing with TJ McConnell and Aaron Holiday for minutes off the bench.

  • Jakarr Sampson
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    Jakarr Sampson is doubtful ahead of Friday's matchup against the Pistons as he is dealing with a sore lower back.

    Sampson was very solid in the seven starts that he made while the Pacers dealt with several injuries to their frontcourt players as he played with a lot of energy. However, when the team is fully healthy, he doesn't have enough minutes to warrant fantasy relevance.
