• Wolves owner Glen Taylor told WCCO Radio that Nikola Pekovic will not play this season and may be bought out.

    Pek’s foot injuries derailed any chance of him playing the past few years and it’s too bad because he has been a pretty fun character in the NBA.  That said, his contract has been an albatross for the Wolves and though they turned Kevin Love into Andrew Wiggins, they pursued re-signing Pek as hard if not harder and that was a big mistake.  For what it’s worth, Pekovic exceeded expectations during his career and he will have plenty of money to pursue an acting career in the next Superman movie.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley will come off the bench on Wednesday and will be restricted to 15 minutes.

    Bradley had a right leg hairline fracture that forced him to miss the past 13 games. He will slowly ramp up as he gets into game-shape but it is unclear if he will regain the starting role from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Magic as he nurses a strained hamstring.

    Rondo has the potential to produce value worthy of the last spot on your roster in standard leagues, while he has slightly more value in 8-cat leagues. Alex Caruso will continue to see more opportunity if Rondo misses the game while Avery Bradley will see about 15 minutes in his first game back from injury.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green (tailbone) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Clippers.

    This will be Green's fourth game that he has missed in the last five, while he only saw four minutes in the one game he did play. He is off the fantasy radar in standard leagues as he is producing per-game value just inside the top-200.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred Vanvleet will not play vs. the Clippers on Wednesday due to a right knee contusion.

    With Vanvleet ruled out, expect Norman Powell to start while Terence Davis and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will see additional minutes off the bench.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall has been upgraded to probable ahead of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Paschall has been exceeding all expectations that anyone had going into this season with the Warriors depleted of their depth. He is averaging 31.5 minutes per game thus far this year but is still hanging around the top-150 in terms of per-game value. This puts him below the cut-line in standard 12-team leagues.

  • Jakarr Sampson
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    Jakarr Sampson (sore lower back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Sampson saw an increased opportunity when the Pacers suffered several injuries earlier in the year but still didn't do enough to provide standard league value. He is off the radar when the team is fully healthy, even in deep leagues.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap is questionable for Thursday's divisional matchup vs. the Blazers as he is dealing with a sore foot.

    If Millsap ends up missing Thursday's game, Jerami Grant would see the biggest increase in value while Michael Porter Jr. and Juancho Hernangómez could also see additional run.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (trunk contusion) is questionable to face the Blazers on Thursday.

    Murray was only able to play five minutes in their last contest due to this injury. Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will see additional opportunity if he is forced to miss any time.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    The Magic announced that Markelle Fultz (illness) will not play on Wednesday and DJ Augustin will start in his place.

    Fultz has had his most relevant fantasy season thus far, maintaining per-game value inside the top-150. DJ Augustin should see additional opportunity on Wednesday while Michael Carter-Williams will likely be the backup point guard.

  • Rodney Hood
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood had surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn left Achilles that he suffered during Friday's game and remains without a timetable.

    A torn Achilles is one of the worst injuries that someone can suffer in basketball. Hood can safely be ruled out for the rest of the season. Kent Bazemore and Anfernee Simons will have more opportunity going forward.
