• Kevin Durant scored 35 points on 13-of-28 shooting (3-of-10 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and two blocks in Wednesday’s win over the Hornets.

    With Stephen Curry and Draymond Green out this was to be expected.  Klay Thompson scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and four triples in the win.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Robin Lopez (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.

    We should see a more Ersan Ilyasova backing up the five with Lopez sidelined, with D.J. Wilson getting a few extra minutes.

  • Kent Bazemore
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    The Blazers have traded Kent Bazemore and Anthony Tolliver and their 2024 and 2025 second-round picks to the Kings in exchange for Trevor Ariza, Caleb Swanigan and Wenyen Gabriel.

    Trevor Ariza will fill in for Bazemore as the starting small forward and should have a better role going forward. For tonight's purposes we should see a little more Anfernee Simons, Gary Trent and Mario Hezonja.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Monte Morris will continue to start in place for Murray while he's sidelined and is a worthwhile stream and DFS option.

  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris (right adductor strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said he has no plans to rush Harris back because he doesn't want a repeat of last season. Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will continue to see extended run with Harris and Jamal Murray sidelined.

  • Nicolo Melli
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nicolo Melli will return to a bench role on Saturday with the return of J.J. Redick.

    Melli started the last two games in which he averaged 13.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 triples and 1.0 steals in 31.5 minutes but now returns to a bench role where his minutes have been very inconsistent all year and thus, can be ignored in fantasy.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Millsap will miss his sixth consecutive game and being ruled out a full day in advance is not a good sign. He is a hold if you can afford it with top-100 numbers on the season but it is becoming increasingly difficult and he will surely be missing additional games further along in the season even once he is cleared from the current injury so a drop is not out of the question. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue picking up the slack in his absence.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Allen Crabbe may not be able to make his Wolves debut on Saturday as he is dealing with an illness.

    Crabbe's roll on his new team is yet to be determined but it shouldn't be anything that would garner any fantasy attention outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (bruised left hip) is questionable to play against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Although Lamb has been struggling a bit lately, he is still a top-75 player in standard leagues on the season. A trade after his next big game is possible with Victor Oladipo returning in a few weeks.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Danilo Gallinari will rest against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Gallinari was playing in back-to-backs earlier this season but will now be rested in one of the two back-to-back games for the second time in a row. The Thunder have another back-to-back set coming up next Friday-Saturday so he may miss a game next week as well. He has been absolutely crushing standard leagues with top-50 value on the season and top-25 over the last two weeks so maybe this benefits fantasy owners so he stays fresh and finishes the year strong.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Blazers.

    Ferguson apparently tried play through the illness on Friday but had to leave after only seven minutes. Even playing 26.0 minutes per game this season, he is not providing anything from a fantasy perspective to be considered in leagues, sitting outside of the top-300.
