• Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Thursday that Paul Millsap will miss three weeks after undergoing a procedure on his knee.

    The procedure was non-surgical and it shouldn’t impact his ability to start the season, but it underscores some of the concerns we’ve had about his durability over the past year or two.  He didn’t show any issues with his performance or durability this season, but he has played through a lot of injuries and had a lot of mileage so it should at least be something that owners consider on draft day.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee (right cuboid) has been ruled out for Wednesday's tilt against the Rockets.

    Plumlee's absence stings as the Nuggets are already without Paul Millsap (left knee contusion). This means Jerami Grant will see all the frontcourt minutes he can handle, making him an attractive DFS play.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray is still not over his left ankle sprain and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

    Murray was looking at a multiple-game absence with his injury, so the report is simply in-line with those projections. He's worth a hold as a top-50 value player when healthy.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

    With Millsap still unable to take to the court, we should see Jerami Grant and even more Michael Porter Jr., both of whom are worth owning in standard leagues while Millsap is out.

  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris (right adductor strain) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Harris can be dropped in standard leagues, but keep him on your watch lists in case he finds his way back to Healthy Land. For now, find productive warm bodies to get you those wins.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (right quad contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Johnson is not worth a hold right now. He can be streamed for his 3s once he's healthy and active again.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes will miss Wednesday's game as he continues to recover from left hip soreness.

    Baynes is a drop in 16-team leagues or shallower now. His reduced minutes and recent injury has made him expendable for fantasy teams in the hunt for Ws.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Maurice Harkless (sore lower back) will play in Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    Harkless should resume his role on the wing where he should see a few extra minutes with Paul George still out. Play him as you normally would.

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    The Celtics have assigned G Romeo Langford to the Maine Red Claws of the G League on Tuesday.

    Langford will now get the opportunity to develop with extended minutes down in the G League. If there are injuries to the Celtics rotation, he will be back up again. Langford is off the fantasy radar.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) will make his return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Clippers, though coach Rick Carlisle said that he “likely will play shorter stretches than normal.”

    Porzingis is ready to go after being out of action for a few weeks. It initially seemed to be maintenance but turned into a multi-game absence. Plug Porzingis back into all lineups tonight with this being the only game on the slate, but monitor his injury situation closely. The Mavs will likely go back to the playing restrictions that were presumed to be present before the season started.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (right thumb sprain) is being listed as available to play for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Brown has been listed as available on just about every Pistons injury report lately but has yet to miss time because of the thumb. The bigger concern is what the impact of the impending return of Reggie Jackson (questionable) has on Brown's usage as a distributor. Keep a close eye on the situation in the coming games.
