Nerlens Noel (leg), Jahlil Okafor (shin), Nik Stauskas (illness) and Kendall Marshall (illness) have all been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Heat.
This is the same group that missed Friday’s game and the winners were Richaun Holmes, Jerami Grant and Hollis Thompson. Holmes is at a minimum an intriguing short-term/one-game pickup while Noel and Okafor are out with their mysterious injuries. Grant’s upside isn’t being tapped this season it appears, but he’ll have a nice chance at some late-round value, and Hollis Thompson joins Isaiah Canaan as players that can either go boom or bust for fantasy owners. Ish Smith and Robert Covington went bananas on Friday with all the scoring responsibilities.
