Dwight Howard (left quad contusion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday’s game against the Heat.
The Hawks were fairly quick to rule Howard out for the rest of the game. He left abruptly in the middle of the third quarter. Howard left the game with 11 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and three steals in under 25 minutes of play. The Hawks host the Bucks on Wednesday evening. Consider Dwight questionable for tomorrow’s contest.

Cameron Johnson (quad bruise) is being listed as out for Saturday's matchup with the Celtics.
The SUns will be shorthanded on the wings again with both Johnson and Kelly Oubre Jr. (concussion) sitting this one out. Mikal Bridges should again see a healthy dose of minutes and is worth a look as a streamer whenever he gets the minutes.

Rodions Kurucs is starting in place of Joe Harris (back) in Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Kurucs saw a few starts while the team was banged up, but has been underwhelming this year. In a difficult matchup, Kurucs isn't a recommended streaming option.

Kemba Walker (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Suns.
Brad Wanamaker may be in line to draw the start for Walker with Marcus Smart already slated to start for Jaylen Brown. Walker's injury doesn't seem to be long-term and he should be treated as day-to-day going forward.

Robin Lopez (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.
We should see a more Ersan Ilyasova backing up the five with Lopez sidelined, with D.J. Wilson getting a few extra minutes.

The Blazers have traded Kent Bazemore and Anthony Tolliver and their 2024 and 2025 second-round picks to the Kings in exchange for Trevor Ariza, Caleb Swanigan and Wenyen Gabriel.
Trevor Ariza will fill in for Bazemore as the starting small forward and should have a better role going forward. For tonight's purposes we should see a little more Anfernee Simons, Gary Trent and Mario Hezonja.

Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.
Monte Morris will continue to start in place for Murray while he's sidelined and is a worthwhile stream and DFS option.

Gary Harris (right adductor strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.
Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said he has no plans to rush Harris back because he doesn't want a repeat of last season. Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will continue to see extended run with Harris and Jamal Murray sidelined.

January 18, 2020, 3:09 pmNicolo MelliPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Nicolo Melli will return to a bench role on Saturday with the return of J.J. Redick.
Melli started the last two games in which he averaged 13.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 triples and 1.0 steals in 31.5 minutes but now returns to a bench role where his minutes have been very inconsistent all year and thus, can be ignored in fantasy.

Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pacers.
Millsap will miss his sixth consecutive game and being ruled out a full day in advance is not a good sign. He is a hold if you can afford it with top-100 numbers on the season but it is becoming increasingly difficult and he will surely be missing additional games further along in the season even once he is cleared from the current injury so a drop is not out of the question. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue picking up the slack in his absence.

Allen Crabbe may not be able to make his Wolves debut on Saturday as he is dealing with an illness.
Crabbe's roll on his new team is yet to be determined but it shouldn't be anything that would garner any fantasy attention outside of the deepest of leagues.
