• Keita Bates-Diop
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop will miss Sunday's exhibition game because of back spasms.

    Nothing to see here, as the Wolves are just playing it safe with KBD against Maccabi Haifa. He should remain a late-round plodder for use in leagues with 20 teams or more.

Fantasy News

  • Evan Turner
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) will be able to take the court on Wednesday vs. the Bucks despite aggravating his injury during Sunday's contest.

    Turner has yet to see more than 17 minutes in any contest so far this season. He is only providing per-game value in 20-team leagues or deeper at this time. Add in the fact that he has been struggling with Achilles pain for the whole season and that the Hawks are choosing to embrace a youth movement, Turner has some obstacles in his path of producing top-200 fantasy value.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder pain) has been upgraded to available ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Bucks.

    Parker has been a great streaming option in the wake of the John Collins suspension. He should continue to be streamed for as long as Collins is out. The question will be how much his fantasy value decreases upon Collins' return to the team.

  • Pau Gasol
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    The Blazers have waived Pau Gasol on Wednesday.

    Gasol is 39 years old this season and has yet to play in an NBA game as he has been recovering from a left foot surgery. It seems unlikely that he will be able to return to the NBA at some point this season as he is still rehabbing. He is off the fantasy radar but had a fabulous career and is a candidate for the Hall of Fame.

  • Jarred Vanderbilt
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets have assigned Jarred Vanderbilt to a G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, on Wednesday.

    Vanderbilt has only played nine minutes across three games for the big league club this season. He will have more opportunity to work on his craft for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. He was selected with the 41st pick in the 2019 draft and is not currently on the fantasy radar outside of deeper dynasty leagues.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (lower back contusion) has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's matchup against the Heat.

    Love was previously listed as probable and should be ready to rock on Wednesday night. He might see an uptick in usage with Tristan Thompson (rest) already ruled out. He will likely start alongside Larry Nance Jr. in the frontcourt for Wednesday's matchup.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard is expected to return for Wednesday's tilt against the Celtics after missing three games with a left knee contusion.

    Leonard is a fantasy darling when he plays. The only flaw to his fantasy stat set is that it is likely that he will continue to miss games intermittently throughout the season. Expect a confirmation that confirms that he will play tonight but this news seems to indicate that he is trending in the right direction

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley will not play on the Kings four-game road trip due to a right thumb fracture but will be re-evaluated when it ends.

    It appeared that Bagley might play on the trip, but that is no longer the case. He's an intriguing talent, but the long absence has been frustrating for fantasy owners eagerly awaiting his return. Bagley hasn't played since October 23. He averaged 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds last season.

  • Henry Ellenson
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Henry Ellenson is available to play on Wednesday after returning from the G League.

    Ellenson had been playing for the Long Island Nets on his two-way contract. He'll make his NBA season debut if he gets into the game against the Hornets, but don't expect much production.

  • Admiral Schofield
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Admiral Schofield has been brought back from the G League for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Despite a 15 point outburst on November 2, Schofield is unlikely to hold much value. However, he will get a chance to impress the Wizards organization in his limited minutes.

  • Derrick White
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White will miss Wednesday's game with left foot soreness.

    White has been disappointing recently, averaging just five points over his last four games. Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills are likely to see more time on the court.
