• Zach LaVine
    G, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (patellar tendon strain) is being ruled out on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and is listed as day-to-day.

    LaVine's knee is said to have improved, and we will just continue to wait for more updates as we gain clarity on the situation. Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison are both worth looks at the end of your bench in deep leagues. It's entirely possible that Lavine, who has had a career year, is shut down for the season. LaVine owners fighting to move on will have to look at the possibility of cutting bait.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs are have ruled Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness), John Henson (right groin strain) and Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) as out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the trio of big men sitting out, it could again be a lot of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. This is a big game for Nance to reclaim the starting spot he reportedly is losing out on.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jordan Bell (left calf strain) and Keita Bates-Diop (back spasms) will be available to play against the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Bell is the more intriguing of the two, with an expected role this season. Bell is a wait-and-see guy in standard leagues.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (rest) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

    This is just a planned rest day for the stud-center. Look for Thon Maker and Christian Wood to get some extra run in Drummond's place.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams will start Tuesday against the Cavs alongside Brad Wanamaker, Carsen Edwards, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams.

    Willaims gets his crack in the starting Celtics C carousel tonight after playing just 11 minutes on Sunday. There are a lot of cheap options to choose from on the Celtics for tonight's three-game DFS slate.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (sore lower back) is expected to sit out of Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns.

    Fox is looking to get ready for the regular-season opener. With Cory Joseph yet to return, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Yogi Ferrell, and Tyler Ulis will get the lions share of PG minutes against the Suns.

  • Quinn Cook
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Quinn Cook (left calf soreness) practiced on Tuesday and is hoping to play on Wednesday vs. the Warriors.

    Cook's continued absence has hurt his chances of cracking the Lakers' rotation in the early going. He has two more opportunities to put himself back in the mix, but right now, he can be left on the waiver wire in deep-leagues.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid will join Josh Richardson, Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Tobias Harris in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against the Pistons.

    It's unknown how much run Embiid will get in this one, but on a light DFS slate, he's one of the few stars suiting up.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are listing Kevin Huerter(right knee pain) as out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Knicks.

    The expectation is still that Huerter will play when the regular season opens up, but it is troubling that he has yet to play in a preseason game. Cam Reddish will continue to get time with the starting unit while Huerter remains on the mend.

  • Evan Turner
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) is probable for Wednesday's preseason game against the Knicks.

    Turner is going to be a jack-of-all-trades type bench player for the Hawks this season, seeing time at the 1-3 spots. The fast-paced nature of the Hawks system gives him some value, but he isn't someone to target in standard-leagues.

  • Jeremiah Martin
    PG, Miami Heat

    The Heat have waived Jeremiah Martin and Mychal Mulder on Tuesday.

    It's camp thinning time. Martin and Mulder carry no fantasy relevance.
