• Paul Pierce scored 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting (including four threes) with two rebounds, two assists and three steals in Friday’s win over the Jazz.

    Pierce tweaked an ankle but was fine and like all of the Clippers players not named Austin Rivers and Wesley Johnson he’s expected to be ready for Sunday’s game against the Mavs.  Pablo Prigioni had a career-type night with season-highs in scoring (13) and assists (7) to go with a career-high seven rebounds and two threes in 42 minutes, and if the Clippers’ posture on resting guys changes on Sunday he’d be a good place to start looking.  Jeff Green (knee) played and hit just 7-of-21 shots for 18 points, four rebounds, three treys, one steal and one block.  None of them will have value on Sunday without a massive resting of players once again.

Fantasy News

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (right Achilles soreness) is available for Monday's game.

    He was already considered probable to face the Heat after missing Saturday's game. Love's minutes have been held down over the last couple of appearances, but he can still help fantasy owners in most leagues.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) will not play on Monday.

    Dennis Smith Jr. will start in his place. Payton was unable to practice over the weekend after missing Friday's contest.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. (left foot fracture) is doubtful to play during Tuesday's game.

    Porter is working his way back but is unlikely to face the Thunder. It might be worth stashing him if you have an empty IR spot.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) will not play on Tuesday.

    Kornet sprained his ankle on Friday but hasn't played particularly well of late anyway. Daniel Gafford should see minutes in the low twenties for now.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Ben Simmons' back injury is more than a day-to-day issue.

    Tobias Harris will be counted on a lot with Simmons sidelined, while Alec Burks will see a larger than usual role. For now, it's unknown exactly how much time Simmons will miss.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw is considered questionable for Tuesday's game due to flu-like symptoms.

    McCaw has missed two games with the illness. He is not worth owning in fantasy.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Oladipo was injured on Friday and missed Sunday's matchup. With Jeremy Lamb injured, Malcolm Brogdon will really be in the driver's seat for the Pacers especially if Oladipo is out longer.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Tuesday.

    Gasol last played on January 28 and the Raptors are not rushing him back. Serge Ibaka owners will continue to profit until Gasol returns.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans (sore right knee) will not play during Monday's game.

    Bertans scored 22 points in 37 minutes on Sunday but will miss the second half of the back-to-back. Without him, Rui Hachimura is in a good spot for a big night versus the Bucks.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris (right knee contusion) will be available for Monday's game.

    Harris was considered doubtful not long ago, so this is great news for his owners. He has posted two double-doubles in his last three appearances. With Ben Simmons injured, Harris could have a very nice evening against the Hawks.
