• Jeff Hornacek plans to keep Tim Hardaway Jr. at under 30 minutes for the rest of the Knicks’ current road trip.

    He played 27 minutes on Friday and had no problem pouring in 31 points against Utah. He missed 21 games this year with a stress injury to his left shin, similar to what Seth Curry is dealing with, so the Knicks have to take it easy with him. On a per-game basis, Hardaway is having a breakout season and is a top-65 guy in standard leagues with 18.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 triples.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie will play on Wednesday against the Jazz despite being hampered with some soreness in his left knee.

    Okogie has averaged 25.1 minutes per game so far this season but has not been fantasy relevant in standard leagues.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will play and start in Wednesday's contest vs. the Jazz.

    Wiggins has performed well in the early part of this season before he was forced to miss some games with an illness. It will be worth watching to see how he performs in his first game back. He is currently producing per-game value in the third round. Although this will likely drop with a larger sample size, fantasy owners who drafted Wiggins will be pleased to get him back in their lineups.

  • Josh Hart
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Josh Hart (left ankle sprain) will not play Thursday against the Suns.

    This will be Hart's fifth consecutive missed game and it is unclear as to when he will return to the court. JJ Redick has been performing well in the starting lineup lately while E'Twaun Moore will continue to see more minutes off the bench.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Suns due to a right adductor strain.

    If Ball is ruled out, look for Frank Jackson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker to see a boost in minutes off the bench. The starters will also be leaned on more heavily if Ball is unable to suit up.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor is questionable to face the Suns on Thursday as he is dealing with a left ankle sprain.

    Okafor hasn't played since November 11th but could be in line for a big role if he is available as Derrick Favors (back spasms) has already been ruled out. Whether Okafor plays or not, look for rookie Jaxson Hayes to compete for minutes as he has impressed in a very small sample size. It is worth noting that the Suns are also dealing with a depleted frontcourt with DeAndre Ayton suspended and Aron Baynes ruled out. This could be a juicy matchup for any of the bigs that are healthy enough to play as they will be matched up against Frank Kaminsky, Dario Šarić and Cheick Diallo.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will not play on Thursday against the Suns as he is dealing with back spasms.

    With Favors ruled out and Jahlil Okafor questionable with an ankle sprain, there could be an opportunity for rookie Jaxson Hayes to produce streaming value. It is possible that he is relevant even if Okafor does play in this contest. Hayes has been a pleasant surprise in his rookie season as he is only 19 years old and was deemed as more of a project around the 2019 draft.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Šarić is listed as probable for Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Dario disappointed in the Suns' loss to the Kings on Tuesday and will look to rebound against a good matchup on Thursday. With Aron Baynes ruled out with a hip injury, Dario could see additional minutes as a result.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (hip contusion) and Cameron Johnson (knee soreness) are both probable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    With Baynes ruled out, the Suns are in need of big men. Kaminsky will likely continue to start while Johnson will continue to launch from distance. The Suns will look to rebound after a disappointing loss to the Kings.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White sprained his ankle during warmups but plans to play Wednesday against the Pistons.

    The Bulls are suffering multiple injuries as head coach Jim Boylen has decided to start someone who hasn't even been a part of the rotation this season, Shaquille Harrison. If White does play, he will continue to compete with Tomas Satoransky and Kris Dunn for minutes.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio is doubtful to face the Pelicans on Thursday due to back spasms.

    Rubio tried to give it a go on Tuesday but was unable to finish the game due to this injury. He has been a tremendous addition to this roster this season, running the offense with great success. Expect Tyler Johnson, Jevon Carter and Elie Okobo to see additional minutes for as long as Rubio is forced to sit out.
