LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) and Manu Ginobili (thigh contusion) will sit out Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies are plagued by injuries so the Spurs are taking their chances resting their star big Wednesday. It’s also the second night of a back-to-back so this is typical Spurs. Owners who drafted the veteran have been given major returns on their mid-round draft pick mostly due to Kawhi Leonard (thigh) being out most of the year. He sits as a top-20 asset which is 30 spots better than last year. Leonard will return eventually and it will hurt the 32-year-old’s value, so you could test the market and see if you can garner an asset that is more of a guarantee to be top-20 the rest of the season. Ginobili is only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) is being listed as probable coming into Friday's matchup vs. the Kings.
With Avery Bradley set to miss time with a lower leg injury, the Lakers might need to play KCP more than they'd like. The opportunity should warrant a flier in standard leagues but the expectations for him should be very, very low to begin with.
November 15, 2019, 12:57 pmOG AnunobySF, Toronto Raptors
OG Anunoby (right eye contusion) is expected to play in Saturday's matchup vs. the Mavericks.
He missed Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers and the Raps still managed come out with the win. It's great news that he'll be back on the court tonight and his fantasy owners should be pleased to be getting back a top-35 guy. Fire him up in all lineups, sit back and relax.

Avery Bradley suffered a hairline fracture in his lower right leg and will be re-evaulated in 1-2 weeks.
Bradley had been dealing with a slew of injuries lately and an MRI taken Thursday night revealed the fracture. He was having a career-resurgence with the Lakers, playing 27.4 minutes per night which is third to only LeBron James and Anthony Davis. With him sidelined, expect Alex Caruso to maybe earn a look with the starters which makes him an interesting pickup in deeper leagues.

He sat out on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies and the Hornets said that he'll test his knee pregame to determine his availability for this one. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

Neither Blake Griffin (left hamstring, knee) nor Derrick Rose (right hamstring tightness) is not on the injury report for Friday.
Both Griffin and Rose missed Tuesday's game after playing on Monday, which was likely a load management situation. Both are good to get back into lineups.

Andre Roberson (left knee) will remain sidelined on Friday.
Roberson went through a non-contact practice last week but there haven't been any more updates. Consider him out indefinitely.

Dewayne Dedmon (right knee sprain) was able to practice on Thursday and Luke Walton thinks that he'll probably play on Friday.
Dedmon remains questionable on the official injury report, but it seems like he'll be good to go if you need him. So far he's logging just 16.2 mpg this season and is only a deep-league value.

November 15, 2019, 1:25 amPaul MillsapPF, Denver Nuggets
Paul Millsap had a throwback game on Thursday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two triples.
Millsap continues to turn back the clock with his performances and he did so in only 27 minutes tonight. This is all with Jerami Grant (12 points, six rebounds, two blocks and two triples) also providing value. Mason Plumlee (10 points, seven rebounds and two assists) was actually vital in tonight's double-digit deficit comeback. The main guy to own right now is Millsap, but beware of his mileage.
November 15, 2019, 1:25 amTaurean PrinceSF, Brooklyn Nets
Tauren Prince had an inefficient night shooting the ball on Thursday, going 5-for-15 from the floor on his way to 12 points with eight rebounds, two assists and two triples.
Prince should be able to churn out some standard-league value while Caris LeVert (thumb) is sidelined for the next few weeks. He won't be as good as he was on the Hawks. but the points, triples and steals are still there and he's a top-90 player so far this year.
November 15, 2019, 1:24 amJoe HarrisSF, Brooklyn Nets
Joe Harris scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Harris was held to only nine points tonight and only attempted three shots from deep. He should be much better on the next one and while he won't light up the scoreboard, the triples should come at a higher rate.
