• Jimmy Butler (knee) posted a comment on Instagram saying that he’s playing in Saturday’s game against the Nets.

    This is a rock solid source who tends to be fairly accurate when it comes to news surrounding Butler so we’re going to lock him in for tonight. Butler has missed the past four games and returns just in time to help salvage the week for owners who took the gamble and deployed him. He was posting insane numbers prior to his absence so the hope is that he can pick up where he left off. It’s unclear whether he’ll be limited in any way, so you’ll have to stay tuned for an update there.

    Update: Jimmy Butler is officially starting against the Nets.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is available to play against the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Carter's injury designation is getting a bit redundant as he continues to play through his thumb sprain. We will continue to update his status per usual.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris and Shake Milton are both available to play against the Cavs on Tuesday after being listed as probable earlier.

    Harris will slot into the PF slot with Al Horfor resting while Milton will resume his role as a defensive guard off the bench.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz is being listed as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

    Korkmaz will take the place of Al Horford in the starting lineup while he rests, and may stick in there for Wednesday's game against the Magic if Joel Embiid sits out the back-end of the back-to-back. Korkmaz is an interesting streamer the next two days if you are looking for a dart throw.

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo is being listed as the starter in place of Terrance Ferguson (personal) for Tuesday's matchup with the Pacers.

    Diallo has averaged 9.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals on .513 shooting from the field in just 22.0 minutes per game this year. He makes for a fun streamer against the Pacers for those looking for some defensive numbers.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph is expected to start in place of De'Aaron Fox against the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Joseph and Bogdan Bogdanovic will pick up most of the slack while Fox is out for the forseeable future, with Yogi Ferrell seeing some added run as well.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid is available to play against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Feel free to get the superstar big man in your lineups. The Sixers play again on Wednesday and it is very likely that Embiid sits in the backend of the back-to-back.

  • Cristiano Felicio
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Cristiano Felicio (wrist) will be out for the next 4-8 weeks with a broken wrist after falling in practice on Monday.

    This is a tough blow for Felicio. Daniel Gafford and Luke Kornet will continue to run as the backup C's behind starter Wendell Carter Jr.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) is being listed as available and will be the starting PG for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat.

    Brown is set to see heavy usage on Tuesday with Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose both out. Brown would make for a nice cheap DFS option and a streaming option if he was dropped in your league.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Coach Nate McMillan said that Victor Oladipo played "a little full-court" 5-on-5 for the first time during his rehab in Tuesday's practice with the Mad Ants.

    Oladipo is inching closer and closer towards getting back to game action with a return in December being very realistic. The buy-low window for the All-Star guard is starting to close with each positive report.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) is being listed as doubtful to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Napier's return is murky at the moment, as there hasn't been a timeline for when he will be back as of yet. Jarrett Culver will continue to log heavy minutes at PG, at least until Jeff Teague (illness) can return.
