• Per ESPN’s Nick Friedell, Dwyane Wade and the Chicago Bulls are expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months.

    This comes as no surprise as the 35 year old, 12-time all-star isn’t exactly ideal for the rebuilding Bulls. Wade signed on with the Bulls last summer for the opportunity to play for a playoff team in his hometown alongside Jimmy Butler. After a mediocre season and the trade of Butler to the Wolves, it became clear which direction the Bulls are heading in. With a buyout, Wade would be able to sign wherever he pleases. The names to watch both represent good fantasy potential — and also a reunion of sorts. The three-time NBA champion could team up again with close friend, LeBron James in Cleveland. Also, it hasn’t been ruled out that Wade could find his way back to the Miami Heat.

Fantasy News

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will not travel with the Blazers to face the Pacers on Thursday.

    This isn't a major surprise, as he was already expected to miss the next couple of games. However, he could rejoin the team later on the road trip. C.J. McCollum owners should have some big numbers on the way while Lillard is out.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk has been suspended indefinitely for violating the league's anti-drug program.

    Monk's suspension will last until he is deemed to be in "full compliance." Monk had been on a nice run in February, but this news certainly clouds his status going forward. His absence could provide an opportunity for Cody Martin to step up.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric will start Wednesday's game due to the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr.

    Saric scored 14 points in only 16 minutes on Monday. Sporadic usage has really hurt his fantasy value, but he could be a decent DFS play against the Clippers.

  • Norvel Pelle
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Norvel Pelle will miss Wednesday's game due to illness.

    It's an upper respiratory ailment. Pelle has rebounding and shot blocking ability but simply doesn't play enough to hold fantasy value.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    Gordon was forced to leave Monday's game early. Ben McLemore should be the primary beneficiary of his absence.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Andre Drummond (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    It has not been a smooth transition for Drummond after being traded to the Cavs.
    Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Larry Nance Jr. could each receive a small bump in playing time against the Sixers. Cedi Osman will likely be relied upon more as well.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) is expected to play during Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    His return could mean fewer minutes for Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall. The Warriors have been very conservative with Green this season but he's worth owning for the rebounds, assists, and steals.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Blazers.

    Sumner hasn't played since February 8. He's not worth owning in fantasy.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

    Oladipo hasn't played since leaving Friday's game but hopefully won't be out for much longer. He has struggled with his shot so far, but that can be expected after missing so much time. Aaron Holiday played 30 minutes on Tuesday in his absence.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (right ankle sprain) is not on the injury report and is expected to play during Wednesday's game.

    Hunter had previously been listed as probable. He has averaged 13.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.6 steals in his last ten contests.
