• Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic (right ankle sprain) has progressed to on-court shooting drills, but his timetable remains unclear.

    Vucevic initially suffered the injury on November 20, so he's nearing the three-week mark in his rehab. He given an official timetable of at least four weeks but some contradicting information popped up that he could return sooner. The Magic will likely announce a re-evaluation soon, so stay tuned. Those reports that came out a few days after his injury about his return coming "sooner rather than later" turned out to be a bunch of malarkey and this injury figures to keep Vuc out of action for the foreseeable future. Mo Bamba and Khem Birch will hold down the C spot in the mean time, but they won't do it well enough to be considered as anything more than block and rebound streamers.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    McCaw has missed the past four games after breaking his nose. He can be left on the waiver wire while the team is back to full strength.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is being ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks.

    RHJ doesn't have much of a role now that the Raptors roster is healthy and can be left on the waiver wire. If injuries were to strike the team again, he would be a name to consider due to his defensive potential.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    Capela is in danger of missing another game after missing Monday's win against the Jazz with the heel issue. P.J. Tucker drew the start in that one and would again be in line for additional minutes. Isaiah Hartenstein is looking at extra minutes as well if the team chooses to go that route.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden (left thigh contusion) is being listed as questionable to play against the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Continue to check back in for updates as we get closer to Wednesday's tipoff. Austin Rivers, Ben McLemore and Eric Gordon, who dropped 50 points in Monday's win over the Jazz, would benefit if Harden can't go.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya (left ankle sprain) is being listed as probable to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    Doumbouya has really struggled recently, but he is going to continue to be fed minutes as the Pistons look towards the future. Andre Drummond (wrist) is questionable for this one, which would open up extra minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (wrist) is being listed as questionable to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    The Pistons may opt to play it safe with the trade deadline looming next week. If Drummond can't go, Christian Wood, Thon Maker and Markieff Morris would see extra minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Zhaire Smith
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Zhaire Smith (left ankle sprain) is being listed as available to play in Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Smith may see a few minutes if Joel Embiid (questionable) can't go, but he is not on the fantasy radar right now.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) is being considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Warriors as he has yet to be evaluated by the hand surgeon.

    It would seem that Embiid is closer to sitting out than playing if he has yet to be cleared by the surgeon, though he has a shot to suit up. Al Horford would start at C again while minutes will be open for wings and bigs throughout the rotation should Embiid be unable to go for this one.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (personal) and DeAndre Jordan (finger) are not listed on the Nets injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Irving is ready to rock after missing Sunday's game against the Knicks to grieve. He's going to be playing with a heavy heart after losing a close friend and is someone to target in DFS lineups for his ability to blow up. DeAndre Jordan may get back into the starting lineup for this one as well.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (illness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Luwawu-Cabbarrot is merely a depth option for the Nets and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
