December 11, 2019, 8:58 amJaMychal GreenPF, Los Angeles Clippers
The official injury report is listing JaMychal Green as doubtful to face the Raptors on Wednesday.
A tailbone contusion has limited Green recently as he sat out a couple games before returning on Sunday against the Wizards but only lasting four minutes. Patrick Patterson is likely to get the spot start while Moe Harkless remains the biggest beneficiary in his absence.

January 22, 2020, 9:54 pmFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet came up big and knocked down key shot after shot to lead the Raptors to a 107-95 win over the Sixers on Wednesday, pacing his pack with 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting, including six 3-pointers, five rebounds, eight dimes and one steal.
FVV showed his clutch-mode in this one, stepping up when the Raptors needed him the most to take the lead away from Philly. He's come into his own and is a lock to finish as a top-30 asset (at least) in 8/9-cat this season.
January 22, 2020, 9:47 pmNikola VucevicC, Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic had a busy night in Wednesday's 120-114 loss to the Thunder, ending with 24 points (10-of-20 from the field), 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals, a block and three triples.
Vucevic continues to plot along at second-round value. He's consistency can let owners sleep easy whenever he takes the court. Big games like this will bump him closer to the top of the second-round as well.
January 22, 2020, 9:44 pmLangston GallowaySG, Detroit Pistons
Langston Galloway scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with four steals and two triples in 29 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
Galloway has played over 25 minutes in three straight games. He had 14 points with two threes two games prior and posted six points, five rebounds and four assists in his previous game. Galloway can be a dart throw for points and threes while he's hot, but he is a streaky player who will probably go cold soon and is better suited for 14-team leagues.
January 22, 2020, 9:42 pmMarkelle FultzPG, Orlando Magic
Markelle Fultz finished Wednesday's contest with 11 points, five boards and six assists.
Fultz looks poised to have a breakout in the second half of the season. His rebounds from the point guard position are a welcome gift to patient owners or those lucky enough to grab him off the wire. With D.J. Augustin out, he should see plenty of action. Evan Fournier had a solid night as well, collecting 12 point and six assists but with seven turnovers.
January 22, 2020, 9:38 pmTerrence RossSG, Orlando Magic
Terrence Ross came off the bench firing on Wednesday, putting up 26 points (8-16 FG, 5-11 3PT) and chipping in three rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Ross has taken advantage of Jonathan Isaac's injury and has been contributing plenty of points, threes, and steals recently. He even shot the ball well tonight, but that doesn't appear to be the norm.
January 22, 2020, 9:33 pmEnes KanterC, Boston Celtics
Enes Kanter limped off the court on Wednesday and headed to the locker room with a trainer.
The Celtics already lost Jayson Tatum in this game with a right groin injury. If Kanter misses time as well Daniel Theis would see more minutes and a boost in value. Theis has been a late-round value in standard leagues recently even with Kanter healthy and is worth and add if Kanter misses extended time. Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams could see more minutes with Tatum and Kanter sidelined, but both players are better suited for deeper leagues.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander stuffed the stat sheet on Wednesday night, finishing with 18 points (7-10 FG), 12 rebounds, an assist, three steals and three blocks.
SGA entered the game on the cusp of being a top-45 player and performances like this will continue to help his stock rise. This young talent has the potential to take over a game and will continue to be a valuable asset for any fantasy team.
January 22, 2020, 9:30 pmNerlens NoelC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Nerlens Noel got the start and scored 14 points (7-10 FG) to go with seven rebounds, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.
Noel was a solid contributor with Steven Adams sidelined. Noel is a per-minute machine thanks to his 1.1 steals and 1.6 blocks per-game while shooting close to 70% from the field. He averages less than 19 minutes a game this season and is still a top-70 player.
January 22, 2020, 9:25 pmChris PaulPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Chris Paul scored 19 points on 5-of-12 shooting and managed to collect three rebounds, six assists and three steals on Wednesday.
CP3 has been playing his way into second-round value this season and doesn't show any sign of slowing down. However, the 34 year old does have an injury history, so risk-averse owners may see this as a great sell-high window.
January 22, 2020, 9:24 pmJJ RedickSG, New Orleans Pelicans
J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) is available on Wednesday.
Redick has scored double digits in back-to-back games with five threes combined, but his role may diminish with Zion Williamson (right knee surgery) returning on Wednesday. Redick's role should be watched closely over the next few games, but he's just a watch list name for now.
