• Derrick White
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White has reportedly passed the first concussion test after taking a nasty fall in Team USA's tuneup game vs. the Australian Boomers on Saturday.

    This is good news. White has worked hard for his Team USA roster spot and should provide some guard depth for them once he clears concussion protocols. He was an eye-opener last season and should still hold some fantasy value despite the return of a now-healthy Dejounte Murray.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Nicolas Claxton (left shoulder contusion ) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Pistons.

    DeAndre Jordan is set to miss another game and this should open up a few minutes for the young big man. Jordan won't be out for much longer and Claxton has little to no value in standard leagues with the logjam in the frontcourt.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan (dislocated right middle finger) will remain out of Saturday's game versus the Pistons.

    Jarrett Allen has been holding down the fort with Jordan out and should continue to see his minutes in the upper-20's while he's out.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Mavs.

    With Mudiay out Jordan Clarkson will be expected to take on more of a role as Mike Conley is still working himself back from injury.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (right quad contusion) has been ruled out for at least one more week before he is expected to be re-evaluated.

    Mikal Bridges will continue to see extended run off of the bench with Johnson out, but he's only a worth streaming for steals.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left hop soreness) will be out for at least one more week before being re-evaluated.

    Being re-evaluated does not mean he will return. He's safe to drop in 12-team leagues without an IR spot and expect Dario Saric to continue starting while Baynes is out.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (fractured nose) will miss his second straight game against the Spurs on Sunday.

    McCaw is averaging 5.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.7 triples in 25.4 minutes this year but is playing even less lately with Norman Powell and Fred VanVleet both healthy so he can remain on the wire in all formats.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (personal) will remain out for Saturday's contest against the Wolves.

    This will be Ferguson's fifth straight absence so Luguentz Dort should continue to start on Saturday. He has produced an underwhelming 6.5 points, 0.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 triples in 23.4 minutes filling in for Ferguson over the last four games so he can be ignored in all formats.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams (left ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Wolves on Saturday.

    Adams sprained his ankle two minutes into Monday's game and has missed the subsequent two games. Noel has been filling in nicely but underwent surgery to repair a fractured cheek so if Adams remains out, the Thunder may need to give Mike Muscala and Darius Bazley all of the frontcourt minutes with Danilo Gallinari also ruled out.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel underwent successful surgery to repair a fracture to the zygomatic arch of his left cheek and will not play on Saturday against the Wolves.

    Noel basically fractured his cheek and the report adds that his status will be updated next week so this might be more than a one game absence. He is an absolute hold until we get another update as he has been a top-60 standard league player on the season and with multiple teams inquiring about Steven Adams, Noel's value could be even higher to close the year.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right thumb sprain) is expected to play on Saturday against the Nets.

    Brown missed the last two games but should be able to get decent minutes on Saturday with Tony Snell and Reggie Jackson both ruled out. He has been a top-175 player in standard leagues this year in 27.1 minutes with 8.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 triples, shooting 44.1 percent from the field and 68.4 percent from the line.
