• Rajon Rondo scored two points on 1-of-4 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and two steals over 18 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Kings.

    The Pelicans are going to be in limbo until the trade deadline passes if we had to guess.  They don’t know if they’re going all the way with Boogie and Brow, if they’re making a playoff push or what the locker room will look like in a few weeks.  Look for Rondo to be a good threat for late-round value in 8-cat leagues, E’Twaun Moore (eight points, four boards, two assists, one three) will be a late-round value, and Darius Miller (10 points, two threes, three boards) will be a low-end value in 12-16 team leagues.  Cheick Diallo (six minutes) is somebody to watch from far.

  • Shabazz Napier

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman (left foot soreness) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's matchup with the Jazz.

    There is buzz that Layman's injury is to his toe and that it is not expected to be a long term injury. Nevertheless, he is looking iffy at best for Wednesday. Jarrett Culver may be a busy man if Josh Okogie (questionable) and Andrew Wiggins (questionable) also can't go.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is questionable to face the Jazz on Wednesday.

    With Okogie and Andrew Wiggins (illness) questionable, and Jake Layman (foot) doubtful, Jarrett Culver may be thrust into extended minutes. This is a situation to monitor.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (nose) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Daniel Gafford will continue to see extra minutes in Kornet's absence and made the most of on Monday by scoring 21 points in 20 minutes. Kornet can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower left back spasms) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    It will once again be Jaxson Hayes and Nicolo Melli getting all the run that they can handle in a depleted frontcourt. Hayes is coming off a 10 point, 10 rebound and three block performance and is a cheap DFS target on Tuesday's small slate. With Derrick Favors health an uncertainty Hayes also makes for a target in season long leagues.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Blazers.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been red-hot the last two games and stands to benefit, along with a returning Frank Jackson.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson (left neck contusion) is being listed as available to play against the blazers on Tuesday.

    Jackson should get a nice chunk of time with so many injuries in the Pelicans back court rotation. He is a punt option in DFS.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Alving Gentry said that Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) is expected to return for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    The return of Ingram may push Kenrich Williams back to a reserve role, though he should still see a hefty dose of minutes either way. Ingram was putting up top-25 value in 9/8 cat leagues before going down and has a nice matchup against a debuting Carmelo Anthony tonight. Feel free to get him back in your lineups.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter (left foot sprain) is out for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Porter is expected to miss a few weeks at the minimum, in what has been a disappointing season thus far. Chandler Hutchison has absorbed the majority of Porter's minutes while also closing out fourth quarters. He is a name to monitor in deeper leagues.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is available to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Carter has only put up top-120/125 value in 9/8 cat leagues to begin the year as the defensive potential he showed as a rookie has yet to arrive. Carter has some competition brewing at the five-spot after Daniel Gafford busted out for 21 points in 20 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bucks.
