Kenneth Faried (ankle) did not play on Thursday against the Raptors.
Faried’s ankle injury is threatening to linger after various stops and starts and hopefully he’ll just give it the time necessary to get healed up. Darrell Arthur (19 points, full line) has been the primary beneficiary and the rest of the Nuggets’ big man rotation gets some extra room to breathe.
January 25, 2020, 10:19 pmAndre DrummondC, Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond double-doubled in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, logging 20 points, 21 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
Drummond shot below average in this one going 8-of-20 from the field as he had to contend against the Nets' Jarrett Allen. The less than stellar shooting also transferred to the charity stripe, where he went 4-of-8. Nevertheless, he still finished with a monster day on the glass, and the two blocks, making this a good game for roto and points league players.
January 25, 2020, 10:15 pmBruce BrownSG, Detroit Pistons
Bruce Brown scored 17 points in Saturday's loss to the Nets, chipping in five rebounds, five assists and three three-pointers.
Brown got the start with teammate Reggie Jackson resting. He was pretty good from the field, converting 7-of-12, though he failed to get to the charity stripe. He filled out the rest of the box score with five boards and five assists without any countable defensive stats. Brown is an end of bench player would swipes a respectable amount of steals for teams in need.
January 25, 2020, 10:07 pmSvi MykhailiukSF, Detroit Pistons
Sviatoslav Mykahiliuk scored 19 points in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, chipping in five rebounds, three assists, a steal and three three-pointers.
Mykahiliuk drew another start and was productive in tonight's game scoring 19 points. He has scored in double figures in 12 of his past 13 games in the month of January, averaging almost 14 points a game. Unsurprisingly he provides a great source of three-pointers but is also averaging nearly a steal a game. As long as he is starting he is worthy of a roster spot in most standard leagues.

Malcolm Brogdon (concussion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Blazers.
Brogdon will miss his second game after getting hit in the head on Wednesday. Sunday will be Brogdon's 17th game missed with injury this season. He's a top-75 player in per game value and hopefully he can get back on the court soon.

Zhaire Smith sprained his left ankle and finished Saturday's game with one assist in three minutes.
It was his first minutes with the Sixers this season so it was disappointing to see him leave early with an injury. Smith won't have an impact in standard leagues this season.

Allen Crabbe hurt his left knee during Saturday's game and will not return.
Crabbe finished the game with one rebound and one turnover in four minutes. Crabbe is unlikely to have standard-league value at any point this season. If he misses time his minutes should go to Josh Okogie who had a 17-point performance in 32 minutes on Friday.

Goga Bitadze missed Friday's game with an illness but is not listed on the injury report for Sunday.
Bitadze hasn't been able to carve out a role this season with Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis ahead of him. He isn't likely to have an impact in re-draft leagues this season.
January 25, 2020, 8:37 pmAllen CrabbeSG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Allen Crabbe appeared to hurt his knee then headed to the locker room on Saturday.
Crabbe has not been on the fantasy radar. Nevertheless, his minutes will likely go to Josh Okogie if he's unable to return.

Mike Conley was a disappointment in his 19 minutes on the floor on Saturday, recording just six points on 3-of-9 shooting with four rebounds and one assist to his name.
Conley is not there yet. For the immediate horizon, expect low-end lines like this while he gets his legs back. The Jazz are preserving him as much as possible for a deep playoff run, so don't expect those minutes to rise until he's good and ready. He's a hold right now.
January 25, 2020, 8:21 pmShake MiltonSG, Philadelphia Sixers
With Josh Richardson sidelined, Shake Milton will get a crack at running with the Sixers starters on Saturday.
Milton will be an interesting DFS punt play, but has not been consistent enough to pique any interest in season-long formats.
