• Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (strained right hamstring) is being listed as probable to play against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    Napier played nine minutes in his return from a 12-game absence on Sunday and will look to increase his minutes in this one. Napier doesn't hold much fantasy value now that he is third on the PG depth chart after Jarrett Culver took over the starting spot.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Williams was listed as probable yesterday, but it looks like the Hornets will be cautious with their veteran forward. PJ Washington will continue to handle to bulk of the power forward minutes.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee) will be available for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Crabbe will be have his minutes restricted to 25 and come off of the bench. Crabbe has little value in standard leagues with the Hawks' wings getting healthy.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter will rejoin the starting lineup on Sunday versus the Hornets.

    DeAndre' Hunter is playing, but will come off of the bench. Huerter will still be on a minute restriction, but it's being bumped up from 15 to 25 minutes.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (dislocated index finger) will play in Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    This is good news for Hunter, who was listed as doubtful just yesterday. Hunter is expected to come off of the bench with Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter starting, but will not have any sort of minute restriction.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Monty Williams said that Aron Baynes "is in a good place" to return from his left calf strain on Monday.

    That's huge news for the Suns and fantasy GMs alike. He had previously been getting ruled out a full day ahead of time so this is a nice turn of events. Baynes should go right back into all lineups as soon as he's active, while this is probably the end of the line for Frank Kaminsky and Cheick Diallo.

  • Zhaire Smith
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Zhaire Smith suffered a right leg laceration that required four sutures during a G League game on Friday.

    Smith was expected to compete for minutes in the backcourt with the departure of JJ Redick, but it just hasn't happened. Dynasty managers can keep an eye on him but that's the extent of his fantasy relevance.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kenny Atkinson said that the Nets plan on integrating Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) back into practice "in the next week or two."

    Irving has been shooting but still isn't cleared for contact. The hope is that he can return to team practices within the next week but the team has also built some slack into that timeline just in case. That's a vague outlook that's fitting considering the murkiness of this situation overall, and fantasy GMs can probably anticipate at least another week without Irving available.

  • Patrick Patterson
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Back spasms will keep Patrick Patterson out of Sunday's game.

    Patterson was unable to return to Friday's game after leaving with the injury. He's not a fantasy factor.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Sunday's game.

    Thybulle left Saturday's game after just nine minutes. The rookie was a revelation early in the year but has floated in and out of the rotation since. Still, even in mid-teens minutes, Thybulle has enough juice to work as a defensive specialist in all formats.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid will play on Sunday against the Raptors, as expected.

    Embiid missed Saturday's game against Cleveland with a "left hip contusion," though the cynical among us will obviously identify that as a rest day. He's had infamous struggles against Marc Gasol but should be in all lineups today.
