• Lowe still considers the Celtics a winner from free agency despite missing out on KD and Jimmy Butler and he considers them a top three talent in the Eastern Conference

    Many Celtics fans left the draft disappointed but had hope for a couple big free agency signings. The Celtics nabbed Horford from the Hawks and were even given some hope to sign KD. Though that clearly didn’t happen, signing Horford should bring the Celtics to the top of the Eastern Conference. Horford is a great addition to the Celtics and they should have no problem reaching a top seed in the East. But his addition to the roster alone probably isn’t enough to beat the Cavs, however there have been trade talks heating up surrounding the Celtics.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Maurice Harkless (sore lower back) returned from a one-game absence on Monday and barely played against the Mavs, accumulating just one rebound and four fouls in nine minutes.

    Even in a start due to Paul George's continued absence, Harkless disappointed. He's worth streaming if you need a steal or a block, but as he's shown, even a starting role doesn't guarantee a good game for Harkless.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley will not return to Monday's game against the Mavs due to a sore right groin.

    Beverley's night ends with nine points (3-of-5 shooting), four rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 15 minutes. When Beverley missed time recently, the Clippers filled his role with a combination of players, including Derrick Walton Jr. If Beverley misses more time, Paul George will likely be back to pick up some ball-handling slack, as well.

  • Dwight Powell
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (right Achilles injury) is expected to have suffered a season-ending torn right Achilles tendon.

    That was the worry right away after the non-contact injury occurred. The Mavs will miss Powell. Look for Maxi Kleber and possibly Boban Marjanovic to pick up some of the slack. But, this will most likely have an effect on all of the rotation, even down to the guards.

  • Dwight Powell
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (right Achilles injury) will not return to Monday's game against the Clippers.

    This could be a big blow to the Mavericks, depending on the severity of the injury. Fortunately for them, Kristaps Porzingis returned tonight. Maxi Kleber should pick up some extra minutes while Powell is out, and Boban Marjanovic should also see a bit more time.

  • Dwight Powell
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell had to be helped to the locker room after suffering a non-contact lower right leg injury.

    It looks like Powell's night is done after gathering just one point, three rebounds and one assist in nine minutes. This could be very serious, so prepare for the worst if you currently count on Powell. Though, his impact was likely to be lessened with the return of Kristaps Porzingis.

  • 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.
