• Bobby Portis scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with two threes, nine boards and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench in Friday’s loss to the Lakers.

    Portis has been on a bit of a tear lately but his career-long numbers haven’t shown much standard league upside, though he is bringing back solid late-round value in 20.4 mpg in 9-cat leagues this season.  The big question will be if he has truly gotten better from the foul line (81.6 percent this season compared to 66.1 percent last year) and if any of his other numbers regress downward in the second half of the season, and likewise if a trade of Nikola Mirotic helps him.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid is available to play against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Feel free to get the superstar big man in your lineups. The Sixers play again on Wednesday and it is very likely that Embiid sits in the backend of the back-to-back.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) will be out for the next 4-8 weeks with a broken wrist after falling in practice on Monday.

    This is a tough blow for Felicio. Daniel Gafford and Luke Kornet will continue to run as the backup C's behind starter Wendell Carter Jr.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) is being listed as available and will be the starting PG for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat,

    Brown is set to see heavy usage on Tuesday with Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose both out. Brown would make for a nice cheap DFS option and a streaming option if he was dropped in your league.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Coach Nate McMillan said that Victor Oladipo played "a little full-court" 5-on-5 for the first time during his rehab in Tuesday's practice with the Mad Ants.

    Oladipo is inching closer and closer towards getting back to game action with a return in December being very realistic. The buy-low window for the All-Star guard is starting to close with each positive report.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Napier's return is murky at the moment, as there hasn't been a timeline for when he will be back as of yet. Jarrett Culver will continue to log heavy minutes at PG, at least untill Jeff Teague (illness) can retunr.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jordan Bell (right shoulder sprain) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    When Bell has been healthy, he hasn't seen the court time fantasy owners had hoped for and should remain on waiver wires.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

    Even when active, Felicio has minimal fantasy value for as long as Wendell Carter Jr. remains healthy.

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk (knee) is being listed as available to play against the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Olynyk should resume his role as the first big off the bench in what is a thin available roster for the Heat.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro (ankle) is being ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    The Heat have a laundry list of unavailable players for Tuesday's game. Duncan Robinson and the newly called up Daryl Macon are going to see a lot of the bench minutes in this one.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (illness) is being listed as questionable to face the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Teague has already missed four games due to injury. If He can't go Jarrett Culver will continue to see the lions' share of available the minutes.
