• Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Jazz have reached a one-year agreement in principle with free agent point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.

    The Jazz aren't playing around this offseason. Mudiay will come off the bench for Mike Conley after being cast off by the Knicks, who did not extend a qualifying offer. Mudiay averaged 14.8 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting from the field last season. He replaces Raul Neto, who the Jazz let walk on Tuesday.

Fantasy News

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler contributed across the board on Thursday with 14 points, six assists, three steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of court time.

    Butler was solid across the board even though he didn't have a big scoring output. The benefit with a player like Butler is that he always finds ways to make an impact. He's well on his way to being a borderline first-round value this season.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson was a non-factor on Thursday, scoring just two points and turning it over four times in a loss to the Heat.

    Thompson turned in a total dud in this one after a great start to the season. We should probably cut him some slack given his top-50 status on the year. Continue to roll him out, especially if Larry Nance Jr. misses some time.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton scored 16 points on Thursday to follow up a season-high 20 points in Tuesday's contest.

    Sexton added four rebounds and three assists in a reasonably nice outing. Sexton has late-round value with quite a bit of downside when the shooting percentage really tanks. He's a good scorer but he's really not a great player at this point and that's the reality.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love was the same solid asset on Thursday in a loss to the Heat, putting up a double-double with 21 points, 10 boards, and five defensive counters.

    The five defensive counters (as well as three triples) were a nice bonus from Love, who has been huge for fantasy purposes as the only star on this otherwise very unimpressive roster. As long as Love is healthy and on this team, he's a lock for high-end value.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony has a agreed to sign with the Portland Trailblazers.

    The deal is reportedly non-guaranteed and with Portland sliding in the standings, the move screams desperation. Melo will be able to provide you some points on inefficient shooting if he can get minutes in the mid-20s and this move would mean Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere would lose most of their minutes. Nassir Little might slide over to the bench for Melo, but we'll find out soon enough. Carmelo Anthony hasn't been inside the top-100 in value since the 2016-2017 season and was barely inside the top-200 last season with 29.4 minutes a game. If you're scooping him up, make sure you're giving up nothing of real value.

  • Larry Nance Jr.
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. put up a nice 14 point and eight rebounds in 23 minutes of action on Thursday despite re-injuring a left thumb injury.

    Nance didn't come back after going to the locker room He aggravated his left thumb injury and we'll see if that keeps him out in future contests. If it does, we'll see more Tristan Thompson than usual. Otherwise, there isn't much additional value in the Cavs frontcourt

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo popped up as questionable on the injury report for Friday's game with a sprained left knee.

    Diallo struggled in Tuesday's game and was a non-participant in Thursday's practice so it hasn't been a great week for him. We'll see if he can suit up on Friday.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    KCP isn't worth a look in standard leagues right now so even if he does miss out it shouldn't have a big impact on most teams.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis is probable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Davis missed Wednesday's game against the Warriors with shoulder soreness but he looks like he'll be ready to be back to his usual self on Friday. Roll him out as usual. Yay.

  • Chandler Parsons
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    Chandler Parsons (knees) is now available for Thursday's game.

    Parsons has been upgraded three times today, though we still don't imagine he'll play much, if at all, for the Hawks.
