• Zach Randolph
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Zach Randolph went right back to work after being rested in Sacramento’s last game, posting 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

    While the Kings have nothing to gain by giving Randolph any minutes down the stretch, at least he’s proven he can still produce. Unfortunately the scoring totals mask a flimsy stat set. Z-Bo is a popcorn double-double threat who doesn’t usually do much in the way of defense while relying on volume to score, so couple that with his sporadic playing time and it should be obvious that he’s not a serious fantasy option. Skal Labissiere returned to the pine but still saw 26 minutes, producing six points, three rebounds and a block. He could return top-100 value in unchecked playing time but for now he’s just a stash or streaming option outside of deep formats.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is probable for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Is GA's back sore from leading the Bucks in another Herculean MVP effort this season? Probably. It wouldn't be surprising to see Antetokounmpo on the injury report and sitting out some games down the stretch as the Bucks have already locked up a spot in the postseason.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (concussion-like symptoms) will miss the remainder of Thursday's game.

    Smith's night will end with four points and a rebound in seven minutes off the bench. He's been gaining a little traction of late but this takes the wind from his sails. Elfrid Payton will have plenty of work ahead of him with Frank Ntilikina also on the shelf right now.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph will replace the injured De'Aaron Fox (abdominal tightness) in the starting lineup on Thursday vs. the Thunder.

    Joseph has low-end streaming appeal for those who need assists and good efficiency. It is worth noting that his upside is extremely limited.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson is questionable to face the Sixers on Thursday as he deals with back spasms.

    Bobby Portis will replace Gibson in the starting lineup regardless of Gibson's availability. Taj has no value outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis will replace Taj Gibson, who is questionable, in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest vs. the Sixers.

    Portis has had a nice stretch over the last three games and has streaming appeal in standard leagues. Portis' strength comes with his ability to score and rebound well.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De’Aaron Fox (right lower abdominal tightness) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday’s tilt vs. the Thunder.

    Fox suffered this injury during the first half of Tuesday's win over the Warriors but played through it. Unfortunately, he’ll have to miss Thursday’s game. Cory Joseph will see the lion’s share of Fox’s minutes on Thursday while Buddy Hield and Kent Bazemore could also see additional run. The Kings are playing against the Grizzlies tomorrow night so consider Fox questionable for now.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (flu-like symptoms) is probable to face the Hornets on Friday.

    McCaw appears on track to return barring any setbacks. Even with additional opportunity, McCaw has shown that he doesn't have the stat set to provide standard league value. He is worth a look in 20-team leagues.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    According to reports, Coby White tweaked his back before practice and didn't participate as a result.

    White has having a very nice stretch as of late so it would be a shame to see an injury force him to miss time. Over the last four games, White is providing second-round value. If this injury isn't serious and White continues to play close to this level, he will be a must-own player to finish the season. Continue to check for updates as we learn more.

  • Wilson Chandler
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    Wilson Chandler is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Chandler missed the last game due to a personal matter but appears on track for a return on Friday. He provides depth for the Nets but is off the standard league radar at this time.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal reasons) is officially questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    WCS is in jeopardy of missing his fifth straight game on Friday and has little to no value when Kristaps Porziņģis is healthy. WCS has some streaming appeal if he is given spot-starts down the road but can be left on the wire in standard leagues.
