• Derrick Favors (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Thursday.

    He left Monday’s game against the Grizzlies with knee soreness and was unable to return. This is unfortunate news for Favor owners and there has been reports saying the team may shut him down for a few weeks. You’ll wan to stay close to Hoop Ball for updates, but until he’s able to return you can expect to see an uptick in value and minutes for Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Sixers.

    Rondo has been playing well in limited minutes, but the logjam at limits him as a specialist.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma (sore left ankle) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Sixers.

    He'll be coming off of the bench with Anthony Davis healthy, but Kuzma has been knocking down his shots as of late. He's an end of bench guy as of now and worth exploring as somewhat of a sell-high.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Sixers.

    Davis being listed seems like more of a precaution at this point. He should be in line for a normal workload and is slightly underpriced across the industry in DFS.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Suns.

    De'Anthony Melton and Kyle Anderson figure to benefit the most from if Crowder is forced to sit. If you've been holding onto Crowder feel free to drop him.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (lip laceration) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Nets.

    Drummond has missed the last two games but should be in line for his usual run in what is a fantastic matchup versus the Nets. Thon Maker will be relegated back to the bench.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is being listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Wizards.

    With Len out Bruno Fernando will likely draw another start. Len is a borderline standard league guy and without an IR spot he's hard to own.

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Paul George (left knee soreness) is being listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Magic.

    George hasn't played since January 5. With George out Kawhi Leonard will continue being the alpha dog, while Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams will see increased usage as well.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley (sore right groin) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Magic.

    This will be Beverley's third straight game missed and with him out Landry Shamet will take on a larger role.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart (left hand sprain) is being listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Smart had a rough night shooting versus the Magic and maybe his hand injury was the cause of this. The injury doesn't appear to be anything serious and Smart should be in line for his normal workload.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (right groin strain) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Jaylen Brown and Tatum find themselves on the injury report once again. Gordon Hayward and Kemba Walker would pick up a ton of usage of one or both Brown and Tatum sit, while Marcus Smart would be expected to draw the start.
