  • Terance Mann
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Terance Mann left Wednesday's game briefly with a cut lip but was able to return.

    Mann got the start on Wednesday with Patrick Beverley, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George out. Those who started him in DFS will be pleased to see he's back in the game.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw was hit in the face on Wednesday and will not return with a facial contusion.

    McCaw failed to record a stat in less than a minute of playing time. His absence has little fantasy impact.

  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson (right knee surgery) will start in his regular season debut for the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Williamson will probably be on a minutes restriction and Coach Gentry said he would be used in "short bursts". Zion may take some time to ramp up, but his upside is tantalizing.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw was hit in the mouth on Wednesday and had to be helped to the locker room.

    McCaw doesn't have value outside of 30-team leagues now that the Raptors are healthy. He should be left on the waiver wire in all formats and isn't worth holding if he misses time.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz sprained the fourth metacarpal on his non-shooting hand on Wednesday but returned to the game.

    It's great that Fultz was able to return and looks like he will avoid missing games with this injury. Watch his status in the coming days just in case it gets worse.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson left Wednesday's game with a left hamstring injury and will not return.

    Richardson finished without recording a stat in four minutes. Matisse Thybulle has had late-round value as a defensive specialist with Joel Embiid sidelined. Thybulle should see increased value with Richardson out and Furkan Korkmaz is worth a look in standard leagues as a points and threes specialist with Richardson out.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson headed to the locker room on Saturday after injuring his left hamstring.

    Richardson was chasing a steal and pulled up grabbing his left hamstring before heading to the locker room. If Richardson misses time Furkan Korkmaz would likely slide into more minutes and Matisse Thybulle would get a boost in value. Korkmaz could have standard-league value with points and threes with Richardson out. Matisse Thybulle has been a late-round fantasy value as a defensive specialist and that should continue until Joel Embiid returns.

  • Joakim Noah
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Mavs have touched base with Joakim Noah in the midst of losing C Dwight Powell to a season-ending Achilles injury.

    Noah is one name in what is sure to be a long list of potential names that the Mavs will look in to in replacing their starting C. Even if Noah were to sign with the Mavs, it is hard to see him walking into fantasy value.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz was diagnosed with a sprained fourth metacarpal on his left hand during the first quarter of Wednesday's game against the Magic and is considered probable to return.

    Owners can breathe a sigh of relief as it looks like Fultz avoided a long-term injury. This is still a situation to monitor in the coming days as swelling may occur overnight.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley (left foot soreness) is expected to play in Friday's game against the Bulls.

    It looks like Wednesday's absence is just a maintenance day as the Kings take a cautious approach with their young big man. Check back in as the week progresses to confirm Bagley's status, but he looked great on Monday with 15 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes.
