July 9, 2019, 9:43 pmBrandon ClarkePF, Memphis Grizzlies
Brandon Clarke helped the Grizzlies eke out a defensive win by recording nine points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block and a team-high +25 plus/minus in Tuesday's 79-69 win against the Suns.
The first-round pick's stats don't pop off the page, but he had more than double the next highest team member's plus/minus ratio which is a better indicator of how he played. Ivan Rabb chipped in with 12 rebounds and Bruno Caboclo had a well-rounded game with six points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks. Each of the three will be looking to crack the Grizzlies rotation next season as they commence their new youth movement.
November 12, 2019, 3:59 pmRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have upgraded Rajon Rondo (calf) to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.
Rondo must have looked good in shootaround and will make his 2019-20 season debut on Tuesday. He is likely to be eased back into the lineup with all of the depth tht the Lakers have, but could eventually work his way into the starting lineup. He is more of a wait-and-see guy unless you are desperate for assists.

Damion Lee (fractured right hand) is out at least the next two weeks after getting an MRI on Tuesday.
The Warriors continue to take a beating up and down their roster. Alec Burks and Jordan Poole will see extra minutes while Lee is out.

Landry Shamet (left ankle sprain) avoided a significant injury as an MRI revealed a grade 2 high ankle sprain, and he remains without a timetable for return.
Shamet is probably looking at a few weeks of absence, but this is a win for the Clippers. The bigger hit to Shamet's value will come in the form of Paul George, who is set to make his Clippers debut on Thursday against the Pelicans.

November 12, 2019, 3:04 pmDaryl MaconPG, Miami Heat
Daryl Macon has rejoined the Heat ahead of Tuesday's game against the Pistons.
With the Heat dealing with a multitude of injuries, the team needed another fresh body off the bench. Macon may see a few minutes tonight, but there is little fantasy value to be found here.

Allen Crabbe (right knee arthroscopy) is being listed as probable to make his season debut against the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Crabbe hasn't played in an NBA game since March 13th, 2019 and will likely be eased into game action over the coming weeks. Crabbe is a career 39 percent shooter from deep and could be a 3-point specialist if he can work his way into the rotation.

November 12, 2019, 2:53 pmAlex LenC, Atlanta Hawks
Alex Len (left ankle sprain) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.
Len will come off the bench in favor of Damian Jones in this one. Len came into the season with what looked like a sure-fire job and a ton of minutes, but he has done everything in his power to get himself benched up to this point. He can be left on the waiver wire until further notice.

November 12, 2019, 2:50 pmDamian JonesC, Atlanta Hawks
Damian Jones will start Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, with Alex Len coming off the bench.
Len's stock continues to plummet with each passing day. Jones has averaged 10.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.9 blocks per 36 minutes for his career and makes for a deeper league pickup for teams looking to get cheap big man stats.

Though the team first reported it yesterday, coach Jim Boylen said that Lauri Markkanen (sore oblique) has been dealing with the oblique injury for two weeks now.
This could explain Markkanen's slow start to the season. There is no reason to think that Markkanen will miss any time with this injury, so it will be something that he will have to deal with moving forward. Keep him in your lineups as you normally would.

November 12, 2019, 2:10 pmGary ClarkPF, Houston Rockets
The Rockets have sent Gary Clark and Isaiah Hartenstein back to the G League on Tuesday.
Both Clark and Hartenstein haven't seen much action with the Rockets this year and will look to get more seasoning down in the G League. Clark may have his stay in the G League cut short with the news of Eric Gordon missing the next six weeks and Danuel House battling a back issue.

Danuel House (bruised back) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.
With Eric Gordon potentially out for over a month, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore are going to have a lot of extra minutes on their plate in this one. The Clippers defense is a hard one to recommend streaming against.
