• Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News speculates that of the Spurs injured players, Rudy Gay is most likely to make his return to action soon.

    Gay has missed 23 games with the heel injury, but he appears to be closer to game action than teammate Kawhi Leonard who remains out with a quad injury. The Spurs have not provided a timetable for either player.  Gay has been a top-150 player on the season so when he does return he would be an add for teams that could use some depth at the forward position. Leonard owners are just hoping that The Klaw can give them any sort of minutes around the fantasy playoffs.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (leg contusion) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    There was some hope Gordon could return for this one after missing the prior three and this update does not rule that out. Gordon was a fringe standard league player as a three-point specialist prior to the additions of Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll so he can be left on the waivers unless three-pointers is the only thing your team needs as he is averaging 3.2 of those per game this year.

  • Adam Mokoka
    G, Chicago Bulls

    Adam Mokoka has been called up by the Bulls head of Saturday's game against the Suns.

    Mokoka will provide emergency depth for the Bulls but has only appeared in six games for them thus far at 3.6 minutes per so not much is expected here. For what it's worth, the undrafted rookie wing is averaging 10.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.6 triples in the G League this season with a 37.5/31.8/70.0 shooting line.

  • Luke Kornet
    PF-C, Chicago Bulls

    Luke Kornet (left ankle sprain) will not play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Kornet has underwhelmed as the Bulls' starter over the last 14 games and disappeared in the two games since his 25-point outburst against the Sixers right before the All-Star break. Daniel Gafford will draw the start on Saturday and might be viewed as a short-term blocks specialist while splitting time with Luke Kornet until Wendell Carter Jr. returns.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    Deandre Bembre (abdominal pain) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday

    Bembre was originally listed as doubtful so this is no surprise although we have yet to learn about any details on this injury. This will be Bembre's 15th consecutive game on the shelf as the first 13 were related to a hand injury which he has now recovered from.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back tightness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

    Simmons missed Thursday's game and Sixers gave starts to both Glenn Robinson III and Raul Neto. With Simmons back and Al Horford now officially with the second unit, it is unclear whether it will be Robinson or Neto who will stick with the starters of the Sixers go back to Furkan Korkmaz. In any case, coach Brett Brown said he does not want to commit to a single starting unit. If even if Korkmaz, Robinson or Neto can win the final starting position outright, it is unlikely any of them can carve out standard league value with the scoring and depth the Sixers possess.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas (foot surgery) returned to action on Friday after missing a little over two months.

    Thomas played 22 minutes for the Pistons' G League affiliate, posting 27 points on 10-of-26 shooting with seven triples, seven rebounds, one assist and no turnovers. He should be back with main team soon but the 2018 second round pick can be ignored in fantasy circles.

  • Malcolm Miller
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have sent Malcolm Miller to the G League for their game on Saturday.

    There are no fantasy implications here as Miller has averaged only 5.1 minutes for the Raptors this season across 23 games. Undrafted in 2015, this is Miller's third season in the Raptors' system. He has not played much in the G League this season either as Saturday will only be his third appearance for the team.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday finished Friday's 128-115 win over the Blazers with 20 points (5-for-10 shooting), nine assists, four triples, four steals and two rebounds.

    This was an elite line from Holiday, who was very aggressive in attacking the basket as evidenced by his eight free throw attempts. As Holiday figures out his spots in this new-look offense watch for his scoring to tick up.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Brandon Ingram scored an efficient 16 points (5-for-8 shooting), six assists, four rebounds and three triples in Friday's win over the Blazers.

    Brandon Ingram looks more and more comfortable leading this offense every day and tonight we got a glimpse at his development as a passer and playmaker. As the roster gets healthy around him and he doesn't have to rely on scoring so much every night, expect his fantasy game to continue to grow and flourish – potentially adding some assists along the way.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale played 25 minutes on Friday, putting up nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

    He only made three shots tonight (3-of-8 FG) and was a paltry 1-for-5 from deep, although he is averaging 1.2 threes per game this year. His contributions across the stat sheet have kept him fantasy-relevant in nearly all formats this season. O'Neale's rank has sat around the top-150 and he should definitely be used in 14-team leagues.
