• Juancho Hernangomez (ankle) limped off the floor in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Jazz and did not return.

    Hernangomez had a nice night with nine points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, three steals and two blocks.  The only blemish was the 4-of-8 mark from the foul line and now the injury.  We’ll pass along more info as we get it and until we hear for sure that Danilo Gallinari’s thigh injury is serious, this looks like a one-time burst for Juancho. 

    Update: X-rays were taken but he says he was okay, so presumably that means they’re negative.  He probably really likes playing so he might be a bit optimistic, and we’ll see how the reporting goes before weighing in on his day-to-day fantasy value.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    The Lakers superstar big man is not quite ready to get back on the floor, but he is seemingly close. With Davis sitting out, Kyle Kuzma will once again be looking at added opportunities while LeBron James takes on even more usage.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors doubled-doubled in Saturday's loss against the Clipper with 22 points, 11 rebouunds, three assist and one steal while shooting a perfect 10-of-10 from the field.

    Favors has been a top-30/50 player in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month and should continue to produce as long as he can stay healthy. Favors is averaging 12.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks during that span. Favors' biggest flaw is his poor free-throw shooting, and he went 2-of-4 from the line tonight.

  • Jaxson Hayes
    PF-C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jaxson Hayes handed out a career-high four assists to go along with 14 points, five rebounds and one block in only 15 minutes in Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    Hayes finished the game 3-of-3 from the field and 8-of-12 from the free-throw line, in what was an extremely productive per-minute game against a good defense. As nice as this production was, as long as Derrick Favors is healthy and Hayes is seeing minutes in the teens, he can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Grant Williams
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Grant Williams will start in place of the injured Kemba Walker (knee) for Saturday's game against the Suns.

    While the Celtics opted to go big and start Williams in this one, he may ultimately still see around twenty minutes.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball had a big triple-double against the Clippers on Saturday with 18 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds, two steals, one block and four threes on 7-of-16 shooting from the field in 39 minutes.

    Ball also committed six turnovers on the night, but owners have to be ecstatic with this game from Ball. Ball shot 4-of-9 from 3-point range, as he continues to improve his shot as the season wears along. Ball has been a top-55/30 player in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month and will soon have Zion Williamson at his disposal.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (hamstring) will make his return to the lineup in Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    FVV is expected to play in 7-8 minute stints as the team looks to ease him back into the lineup. Norman Powell is likely to be affected the most when VanVleet gets back up to speed. Make sure to get VanVleet back into your lineup as he has been a top-30 per game player on the season.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III (right ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Saturday's game against the Magic.

    With Robinson out, there will be more minutes to go around for Jordan Poole, Alec Buks and Ky Bowman, among others. Robinson has been a consistent bench option for fantasy leagues this season and is providing top-105 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Ky Bowman is being listed as available to play in Saturday's game against the Magic.

    The Warriors will be without Glenn Robinson III and Draymond Green, among others, tonight, so Bowman should receive plenty of run for this one. Bowman makes for a solid guard streamer tonight but isn't worth rostering past tonight unless his contract situation is resolved.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute contusion) is being listed as questionable to play in Saturday's primetime game against the Rockets.

    Davis is considered a game-time decision, so his status will likely come right down to the wire. Make sure to keep track of Davis's status as we get closer tipoff.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (hamstring) is being listed as questionable to play in Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    Nick Nurse stated earlier in the week that VanVleet could return this weekend, so there is a real chance the Raptors get their sparkplug combo guard back for this one. Norman Powell would take the biggest hit should FVV be able to go.
