Sullinger has been known to struggle with his weight and focus throughout his young career in the NBA
Sully struggled with weight during his NBA career, that’s no secret. But little improvement has also been shown through his four-year NBA career. His one-year $6 million contract with the Raptors proves the lack of interest he generated during the free agency period. Sully still has plenty of room to grow and a change of scenery could significantly improve his career. If he can beat out Patrick Patterson for the four spot, he has a chance to improve on last seasons numbers and be a viable late-round selection in fantasy drafts.

Zhaire Smith (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
On Saturday, Smith left his season debut with the Sixers early with a sprained ankle. Smith played just three minutes in that game and he's unlikely to get significant minutes even if he makes it back for Tuesday's matchup.

Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle) has returned to Monday's game against the Pistons.
Porter Jr. looks great, having just scored seven quick points in the third quarter. He's a player to watch as the Cavs may open some more minutes for him prior to the trade deadline.
January 27, 2020, 8:38 pmJoel EmbiidC, Philadelphia Sixers
Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
Embiid has missed nine games with the injury, but looks to be close to a return. Keep an eye on his status on Tuesday and be ready to activate him.

Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle) is probable to return on Monday vs. the Pistons.
That's great news that it doesn't appear to be Porter's recently injured knee that was the issue. Look for Porter to get back out there shortly.

Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle soreness) is now listed as available for Monday's game against the Rockets.
Mudiay missed just one game with the ailment. His minutes have been under 10 per game over his last three. That won't likely change much with Mike Conley back in the rotation.

Kevin Porter Jr. limped off the court and went to the locker room during the second quarter of Monday's game against the Pistons.
Porter returned from a 10-game absence tonight, and that's not a good start. We'll find out shortly if he left due to the same left knee that just kept him out for that stretch.

Jonathan Feigen reports that the Rockets are optimistic that James Harden (left thigh contusion) will play on Wednesday against the Blazers.
That would stop Harden's missed games streak at two if he can get back by Wednesday, and to much rejoicing by those that roster him, at that.

Thon Maker went to the locker room in the first quarter of Monday's game and returned soon after with a bandage over his right eye.
It appears that Maker will play through the injury, so there's seemingly no worry here.

Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is now listed as out for Monday's game against the Jazz.
In addition to Capela, the Rockets will be without James Harden (left thigh contusion) and Russell Westbrook (rest). Eric Gordon, Danuel House and Austin Rivers will all start and have the potential to launch a bunch of threes.

Langston Galloway went to the locker room briefly on Monday and returned to the game with two fingers taped together.
Keith Langlois reports that Galloway quickly removed the tape, so it doesn't sound like anything too serious.
