• Troy Brown Jr.
    SF, Washington Wizards

    Injured Wizards Troy Brown (left calf strain) and C.J. Miles (left foot stress fracture) were able to practice "a little bit" on Monday.

    Brown was expected to be out for four weeks as of September 24, so he's trending in the right direction and could be back on the court soon. He's a nice deep-league target and could even get on the standard-league radar if he takes hold of a starting job. The Wizards haven't provided many updates on Miles, so his timeline is far murkier. Even when healthy, he'll only be a 3-point specialist.

Fantasy News

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Paul George (shoulders) has been ruled out on Wednesday.

    George was expected to return on the Clippers' current road trip, which means that he has a good chance to play tomorrow night. The buy-low opportunities are just about finished with, while your sell-high window on the other Clippers (excluding Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell) is almost shut too.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have sent Kevin Huerter (left shoulder) back to Atlanta so team doctors can assess the results of his MRI.

    Huerter has been ruled out of Thursday's game and it sounds like he could miss more beyond that. He had just gotten back into form on the court, so this is a tough break for Huerter and his fantasy managers. He's a must-own player in standard leagues when healthy, but if there's a can't-miss free agent sitting out there then you'll have a tough choice to make. We'd advise waiting for a timetable if possible.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Omari Spellman (left ankle sprain) is available for Wednesday's game with the Lakers.

    Spellman missed Monday's game and wasn't able to practice on Tuesday, but he'll be ready if called upon tonight. With Draymond Green back in action, Spellman is a complete roll of the dice. He and Marquese Chriss figure to be jockeying for a rotation spot on most nights.

  • Rodney Hood
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) is probable to play on Wednesday.

    Hood was also listed probable on Tuesday but ended up sitting out, so fantasy managers will need to check back for an update. He's returning late-round value and isn't a must-own player in 12-teamers given his moderate upside, but he is trending in the right direction if you'd usually plug him into lineups.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside (right foot sprain) is probable for Wednesday's showdown with the Raptors.

    Whiteside's been able to play through the injury of late and could be in line for a big rebounding game against a thin Toronto frontcourt. Get him in your lineups if you've got him.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House (back) will not play on Wednesday and Ben McLemore will start in his place.

    The Rockets have extremely limited depth so McLemore is getting a big chance to earn more work down the line here. He's on the deep-league radar as a potential streamer, though House is said to be day-to-day going forward. House should be held in all formats.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz will remain in the starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Korkmaz started for the resting Al Horford on Tuesday and will start in place of the resting (technically a knee designation) Joel Embiid in this one. He's had some hot shooting nights so given Korkmaz a look if you need threes and points in the short term.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke (calf tightness) will play on Wednesday night.

    Burke sat out against the Cavs on Tuesday, so it's good to know he isn't dealing with a serious injury. With Ben Simmons back, Burke doesn't figure to play much at all, healthy or otherwise.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis (sprained finger, right hand) will not suit up on Wednesday.

    Theis was given a chance to suit up by Brad Stevens but it always seemed unlikely given his initial doubtful tag. With Robert Williams also out we should see lots of Enes Kanter and Grant Williams up front tonight.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams (sore ankle) will miss Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Williams is a surprise scratch and this leaves Boston shorthanded up front with Daniel Theis also out. The sophomore center is a great source of blocks and is actually churning out top-115/85 numbers in 16.0 mpg as a result, but his narrow lane of production doesn't make him a fit for all standard-league managers.
