• According to NetsDaily.com, the status of point guard Greivis Vasquez (ankle) for Opening Night remains up in the air.

    Vasquez is still rehabbing from bone spur surgery on his ankle, but even upon his return the minutes the he would receive is also up in the air. Jeremy Lin is hands down the starter, so it will be between Vasquez and Isaiah Whitehead competing for the backup minutes.

Fantasy News

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside (right foot sprain) is available to play on Wednesday.

    Whiteside has been playing through injuries out of necessity for the Blazers virtually all season, and will continue to play through the pain again tonight. They'll need him to deal with the Raptors' beefy front line, so feel comfortable to roll him out into your starting lineup.

  • Rodney Hood
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is available to play in Wednesday's matchup against the Raptors.

    Hood missed his last two games with the injury and should be good to go in this one. He was turning in servicible value before going down, and will mostly take away from any value Kent Bazemore had been able to put together while Hood was out.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Nick Nurse anticipates that OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) will be back on the court for Saturday contest against the Mavericks.

    Anunoby was never expected to be sidelined long, and we will await an official word to confirm this. Sharp-shooter Malcolm Miller is set to start in his place on Wednesday against the Blazers and makes for an intirguing DFS play.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma will get the starting nod while Anthony Davis (rib soreness, shoulder sorness) sits out on Wednesday.

    Kuzma is the logical fill in here and was going to see a lot of run no matter who started this one. Davis will likely not be sidelined long so don't take too much away from his performance tonight.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee arthroscopy) is not listed on the injury report for the first time this season.

    The tiples specialist will get his first opprotunity to suit up in Phoenix on Thursday and could actually find himself some minutes should Kevin Huerter (shoulder) miss a lot of time. Don't expect much in the early going though, as the Hawks will likely be cautious with the veteran sharp-shooter.

  • Chandler Parsons
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    Chandler Parsons (load management) has been upgraded to doubtful for Thursday's game against the Suns.

    It's the first time a tag other than 'out' has been assigned to Parsons this season, so this does actually represent progress. Don't expect much from him whenever he is able to suit up though.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring) will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Napier was upgraded to questionable earlier but was ultimately held out, so it seems he's not far away from a return.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jordan Bell (right shoulder sprain) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Spurs.

    He was listed as doubtful so there's no real surprises here. Leave him on the wire.

  • Vince Carter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter (personal) has been ruled out of Thursday's game.

    Carter has missed the previous two games and there's no timeline for his return. His absence might open up some more minutes for DeAndre' Bembry but there's not much fantasy impact.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish (left shoulder) is probable for Thursday's game.

    Reddish left Tuesday's game and it's good to see that he's not expected to miss time. With Kevin Huerter suddenly out indefinitely, Reddish should be able to hold onto his starting spot. He's a weak option in redraft formats.
