• Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (illness) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Owners can feel comfortable getting Dragic, who is averaging 16.1 points, 5.1 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 threes so far this year, back in their lineups. With Justise Winslow still out, Dragic will continue to see extra minutes.

Fantasy News

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (left hand contusion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    He was trending in this direction since yesterday, but this leaves the Hornets dangerously short at the SF spot. The Pacers are a big team, so we might see some more lineups with Miles Bridges at the three to counter Indiana's size.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Nassir Little (back spasms) is questionable for Monday's game.

    Little didn't play in Portland's last game, though his playing time has been trending down since a short run in the starting five. He's not a fantasy option.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) has a "good chance" of returning on Monday.

    Thomas has been out for 10 days, though it remains to be seen if he'll go right back into the starting five upon returning. He's been a much better fit, at least from a fantasy perspective, with the second unit. Ish Smith's value will take a hit.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Scott Brooks deemed it unlikely that Moe Wagner (sprained ankle) would be able to play on Monday.

    It'll be Wagner's second straight absence, and he's missing a great chance to put up numbers with Thomas Bryant sidelined. Ian Mahinmi will once again be the Wizards' only center on Monday and could get some big minutes against Detroit.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Nicolas Claxton (left hamstring soreness) will not play on Sunday.

    Claxton has been in and out of the rotation and isn't much of a redraft option at this point, though that can change. He'll need to get healthy first, obviously.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (right quad strain) is being considered questionable on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Millap missed Saturday night's game vs. the Thunder and he might be in danger of missing this one too. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but if he does miss then expect Jerami Grant to once again start in his place.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (back soreness) is probable on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Murray played a good game vs. the Thunder on Saturday night and it looks like he'll suit up for more of the same vs. the Knicks. He can be locked into all lineups against a very bad Knicks defense.

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic (right ankle sprain) will be available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    He'll be making his return after missing his last 11 games and fantasy owners should be very happy. They might work him back into the action slowly so don't be surprised if he doesn't play big minutes tonight but his return will send Khem Birch out of the rotation. Unfortunately, it will also impact Mo Bamba's value but he's still worth holding onto in most leagues.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic may be able to return "within a couple of weeks," according to a report from ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

    MacMahon adds that Doncic is likely to miss Dallas' next four games. Jalen Brunson started the second half in Doncic's place last night and had a strong game overall with 17 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 34 minutes, and he's the likely add in 12-team formats. Tim Hardaway Jr. will take on more of a scoring load and should be added where available as well. Kristaps Porzingis should get a big usage boost, while other players like Dorian Finney-Smith, Delon Wright, Seth Curry and JJ Barea will all get more minutes, though Wright is the only one of that bunch with enough upside to stand out in 12-team leagues. Doncic did not travel with the Mavs to Milwaukee and there is hope that he returns around Christmas.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid is being listed as doubtful with an upper respiratory illness for Sunday's matchup with the Nets.

    Embiid had been rolling after playing really well in both games of a back-to-back set, so this obviously very disappointing for his owners. Al Horford (knee & hamstring soreness) is still listed as questionable for this one as well, putting the Sixers at risk of being incredibly thin in the middle. If neither are able to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn could be looking at a ton of minutes.
