• Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela is being listed as questionable for Monday’s game with an illness.

    The Rockets could be shorthanded in the frontcourt tonight with Brandan Wright already ruled out because of right knee soreness. It could be a big day for the Jazz and their talented front line if Capela does sit, as only Nene and Tarik Black could be called on to play a more traditional center role. Houston would probably have to go small if that were the case, but either way Capela is the only one of the bunch with substantial fantasy value.

Fantasy News

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. is questionable for Friday's game against the Suns with left knee soreness.

    The knee held Brown out in Tuesday's game as well so we'll see if he can step back in and produce his underrated lines again. Rookie teammate Sekou Doumbouya is probable with a right calf strain.. Brown has held late-round value this year but we're waiting for Doumbouya to do something with his minutes. He isn't viable in fantasy leagues right now.

  • Kyle Korver
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Kyle Korver will miss Friday's game against the Thunder with a sore back.

    The veteran hasn't played since February 10th and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

  • Alfonzo McKinnie
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) will not play on Friday against the Pelicans.

    McKinnie isn't on many fantasy radars, so he should remain on waiver wires unless something changes in the Cavs rotation.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Andre Drummond will remain out on Friday as he continues to deal with a left calf strain.

    Drummond has lost a significant chunk of playing time in Cleveland and now will miss his second consecutive contest. We should see more from Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance on Friday.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is probable for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Is GA's back sore from leading the Bucks in another Herculean MVP effort this season? Probably. It wouldn't be surprising to see Antetokounmpo on the injury report and sitting out some games down the stretch as the Bucks have already locked up a spot in the postseason.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (concussion-like symptoms) will miss the remainder of Thursday's game.

    Smith's night will end with four points and a rebound in seven minutes off the bench. He's been gaining a little traction of late but this takes the wind from his sails. Elfrid Payton will have plenty of work ahead of him with Frank Ntilikina also on the shelf right now.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph will replace the injured De'Aaron Fox (abdominal tightness) in the starting lineup on Thursday vs. the Thunder.

    Joseph has low-end streaming appeal for those who need assists and good efficiency. It is worth noting that his upside is extremely limited.

  • Taj Gibson
    PF, New York Knicks

    Taj Gibson is questionable to face the Sixers on Thursday as he deals with back spasms.

    Bobby Portis will replace Gibson in the starting lineup regardless of Gibson's availability. Taj has no value outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis will replace Taj Gibson, who is questionable, in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest vs. the Sixers.

    Portis has had a nice stretch over the last three games and has streaming appeal in standard leagues. Portis' strength comes with his ability to score and rebound well.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De’Aaron Fox (right lower abdominal tightness) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday’s tilt vs. the Thunder.

    Fox suffered this injury during the first half of Tuesday's win over the Warriors but played through it. Unfortunately, he’ll have to miss Thursday’s game. Cory Joseph will see the lion’s share of Fox’s minutes on Thursday while Buddy Hield and Kent Bazemore could also see additional run. The Kings are playing against the Grizzlies tomorrow night so consider Fox questionable for now.
