• Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (illness) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    With Rivers missing another game we should see both Ben McLemore and Danuel House reach the thirty-minute mark, with Chris Clemons and Gary Clark seeing extra minutes if the score turns lopsided. Rivers' next chance to return will be on Friday against the Magic.

Fantasy News

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Jacob Evans was ruled out for Saturday with a concussion.

    Jacob Evans should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues. There are plenty of players ahead of him in the Warriors' rotation so it's unlikely he will have fantasy value this season.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green was listed out for Saturday with a sprained finger.

    This injury came out of nowhere and it's small injuries like this that make Green a risky fantasy player moving forward. Owners should try and sell-high on Green once he comes back. Erich Paschall will be a streaming option on Saturday and is a solid DFS play.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (illness) said he would play on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

    Lillard has an upper respiratory illness but will play through it. Lillard is a top-10 player and should come through for his owners on Friday with a good matchup.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry went to the locker room with two minutes left in the first half on Friday.

    Lowry limped to the locker room in the first quarter after banging his knee. He was able to return to the game but left for the locker room early in the first half. Fred VanVleet should return soon and would see increased value with Lowry out. Norman Powell and OG Anunoby would also benefit.

  • Mario Hezonja
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Coach Stotts said that Mario Hezonja is available after missing two games with a lower back contusion.

    Hezonja is outside the top-300 on the season. He can be left on the waiver wire outside of 30-team leagues.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae left the game in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle after stepping on a player's foot.

    Troy Brown Jr. is the player to look at after this news. Brown is ranked 109 per game in 9-cat in the month of January. He's averaging 13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals during that stretch and will hold standard-league value if McRae misses time.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae stepped on another player's foot on Saturday and went to the floor while holding his ankle.

    McRae has been a solid option for points the past two weeks, averaging 18.8 points in the month of January. Troy Brown Jr. would benefit the most if McRae misses time. Brown could have standard-league value while McRae is out.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry limped to the locker room during the first quarter on Friday against the Wolves after suffering what appeared to be a leg injury, but he is available to return.

    Uh oh. After the Raptors were finally getting everybody back and healthy Lowry is now the latest stud to go down on the roster. Lowry has come back from worse injuries than this, and it sounds like he will be fine and will be able to return to this game.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    After suffering a left knee bruise on Wednesday, Tyler Herro has been ruled an active scratch for Friday's matchup with the Thunder.

    The ruling is in for Herro who will sit out another game. If he is healthy there is no reason why he can't suit up for the Heats' next game on Sunday vs. the Kings.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    As he continues to deal with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder, Michael Carter-Williams is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Carter-Williams has not been roster worthy all season with the Magic, and that is not going to change even if he returns while D.J. Augustin is still out. It's best to leave MCW on the wire unless you are in the deepest of leagues.
