• Norris Cole (back) is not expected to play Wednesday and that means Toney Douglas is going to have a big workload against the Kings.

    Douglas went huge against the Warriors on Monday and Luke Babbitt is averaging 14.0 points and seven rebounds in his last two games.  Against the Kings’ ridiculous defensive schemes, Douglas is a must-start player and Babbitt is a little bit better than a coin flip’s chance of being productive for your squad or in your DFS lineup. As for Cole and Douglas, the signing of Tim Frazier to a 10-day deal might have been a sign that Cole could miss additional games and the doubtful tag is a downgrade from questionable tags in the past two games.  A speculative add on Douglas or Babbitt is the right way to do a flier pick and Douglas is almost a must-add player.  

    Update: Cole not expected to play

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner (illness) will be a game-time decision ahead of Wednesday's game.

    After Turner was excused from practice on Tuesday, he is officially listed as questionable. Goga Bitadze and Domantas Sabonis would fill in if he's unavailable.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon (concussion) is listed as questionable and is a game-time decision ahead of Wednesday's game.

    Brogdon has been out for a week but seems to be approaching a return. If he can't face the Bulls, at least the Pacers are getting Victor Oladipo back. Aaron Holiday will also be in the mix for more minutes.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) should return by Saturday.

    The Celtics play on Saturday, but Stevens also left the door open for a Thursday return if all goes well. Tatum has missed a week of action after last playing on January 22. He has averaged 21.5 points and 6.9 rebounds this season.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (right knee rehab) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    After missing about a year of action, Oladipo is ready to go. He will be eased into action, but Jeremy Lamb should eventually lose his starting spot.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Luwawu-Cabarrot doesn't get much playing time, but this is confirmation that he'll be an option for the Nets.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game.

    Crowder has missed two straight games with the knee ailment but seems ready to return. Kyle Anderson is likely to see a lesser role against the Knicks.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton (sore left hand) will not be available for Wednesday's game.

    Melton was a late scratch on Tuesday and apparently isn't ready to return. Tyus Jones should see some more opportunities in his stead.

  • Mike Scott
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Mike Scott (right knee soreness) is questionable for Thurday's contest.

    With Horford also questionable, Kyle O'Quinn may see more minutes than usual against the Hawks. Scott doesn't carry much fantasy value in the first place.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game.

    With Horford and Mike Scott questionable, Kyle O'Quinn may see more minutes than usual against the Hawks. Owners of either player will want to check back for updates on game day.

  • Gary Clark
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Free agent swingman Gary Clark has agreed to a second 10-day contract with the Magic.

    The Magic are in need of healthy bodies right now with Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu likely out for the season. Clark has given the Magic some good minutes but he is not in the fantasy radar except from very deep leagues.
