• Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic was fantastic in Saturday's 110-102 win over the Thunder, triple-doubling for 28 points on 11-of-14 shooting with 14 rebounds, 12 assists, three treys and one steal.

    Jokic is trending up and fast. His buy-low window was shut with extreme prejudice with this favorable-matchup performance. He's ramping up closer to the top-15 zone of last season with each passing game.

    Green is not on the fantasy radar at this time.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) has been cleared to make his return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Embiid's return is huge for the Sixers and fantasy owners alike. The Sixers have been playing without both Embiid and Josh Richardson (groin) and will have to make some changes to their starting lineup. Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton will lose some minutes with Embiid back.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Heat.

    With Tatum once again out of the lineup look for Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to soak up the majority of his minutes.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    The team called up Josh Jackson on Tuesday and the former 4th overall pick may have a chance to make an immediate impact. Jackson was tearing it up in the G League this season and is worth a flier. Kyle Anderson and De'Anthony Melton are in line for additional minutes as well.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle sprain) is expected to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Porter missed multiple weeks with the ankle injury and played 16 minutes in his return to the lineup on Monday. It seems like the Cavs will let him go again on the second night of a back-to-back set. There will be more minutes to go around with Darius Garland (rest) sitting this one out.

  • Dante Exum
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Dante Exum will start in place of Darius Garland (rest) for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Exum is looking at extra minutes and usage in this one while getting the bump in the starting lineup. Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) is expected to play, but if he winds up sitting, Exum will have even more on his plate.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love will play against the Pelicans on Tuesday, which will be the second night of a back-to-back set.

    This is a different approach by the team, especially considering the trade deadline is just over a week away. With Love in for this one, Larry Nance Jr. will stay in a reserve role and makes for a harder player to pick in DFS contents.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (nose fracture) is being listed as out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks.

    McCaw has missed the past four games after breaking his nose. He can be left on the waiver wire while the team is back to full strength.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is being ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks.

    RHJ doesn't have much of a role now that the Raptors roster is healthy and can be left on the waiver wire. If injuries were to strike the team again, he would be a name to consider due to his defensive potential.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    Capela is in danger of missing another game after missing Monday's win against the Jazz with the heel issue. P.J. Tucker drew the start in that one and would again be in line for additional minutes. Isaiah Hartenstein is looking at extra minutes as well if the team chooses to go that route.
