    Bruno Caboclo has been ruled out of Sunday's game with a right ankle sprain and will not be available to face the Bucks.

    The Rockets used an eight-man lineup in their first game back in action so Caboclo's absence will not likely impact the team's plans for Sunday's game. He's not going to be a factor in fantasy this season, so it's best to leave on the wire.

    Bruno Caboclo inadvertently broke quarantine and must now quarantine for another eight days in his hotel room before returning to team activities, per a report from ESPN.

    Caboclo is the first player who will have to undergo these steps — or at least the first that the public knows about. He's not a member of Houston's rotation, so this won't have a major effect on the basketball side of things, but it is a reminder of the protocols in place while the NBA tries to get going again. Hopefully it's enforced strictly.

    Despite a strong finish to his 2018-19 season, Bruno Caboclo was once again an afterthought in 2019-20.

    Perhaps Caboclo's solid play in Memphis was a bit of a mirage, as it came for a shorthanded, rebuilding team. With the Grizzlies back at full strength this year Caboclo was not a regular, and he would go on to play just five games after being traded to Houston. The per-minute production — 0.4 steals and 0.6 blocks in 8.1 mpg — remains intriguing but Caboclo just can't seem to break into a rotation full-time. The fact that he shot a horrid .143 from deep doesn't help matters going forward. Optimistic fantasy players can keep holding on in very deep dynasty leagues but it's hard to endorse Caboclo for more than that at this point. He closed the year as a top-375/355 (8/9-cat) per-game option.

    The Rockets have flipped Jordan Bell, who was acquired in the massive Robert Covington deal, to the Grizzlies in exchange for Bruno Caboclo and the second round picks in 2023.

    Bell went from buried on the Wolves bench to potentially an important role as a backup big for the Rockets to buried on the Grizzlies bench in a days work. Bell can be left on the waiver wire with this news or dropped if you picked him up after the earlier trade.

    Bruno Caboclo has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Jordan Bell and the right to swap second-round picks in in 2023.

    Caboclo goes from buried on the Grizzlies bench to potentially 20 plus minutes a night as the Rockets backup C with the team fully embracing small-ball. Caboclo is currentlu sidelined with a bone bruise in his knee, but he is reportedly on track to return shortly after the All-Star break. He is a name to monitor in deeper leagues with his newfound home.

    Bruno Caboclo has been diagnosed with a left knee bone bruise and will miss 4-6 weeks.

    Caboclo likely helped some readers win championships last year with some eye-opening performances during the fantasy playoffs and it's looking like his next chance to contribute to fantasy teams will come smack dab in these year's fantasy playoffs. However. Caboclo's star has since fallen with the signing of Jonas Valanciunas and the dual emergence of Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke. While it's good that the former first-round project has carved out a spot in the pros, he's not worth monitoring in fantasy this season.

    Bruno Caboclo (left knee soreness) will miss Friday's game against the Cavs.

    The Brazilian Durant has not had much of an impact so far in his young career and isn't on the fantasy radar in the short term.

    Bruno Caboclo (left knee soreness) is being ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Caboclo has shown flashes when given the time, but he is well off the fantasy radar while the team is healthy. He can continue to be ignored in fantasy circles.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas (right foot soreness) is questionable to play against the Kings on Saturday.

    Valanciunas has been hot over his last four games with 16.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 0.8 triples but the Grizzles may choose not to push him as they are currently sitting in third to last place in the Western Conference. Last time Valanciunas was held out on December 2, Jaren Jackson slid over to the center spot with Solomon Hill getting the start. Hill and Bruno Caboclo may seem some extra run if Valanciunas sits out but neither would be worth deploying in fantasy.

    Brandon Clarke (oblique) will be rested on Friday against the Bucks but is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

    Both Ja Morant and Clarke will sit out of the Grizzlies' first game of their back-to-back this weekend. Clarke returned from a four game absence on Wednesday and had a nice game in his return. Clarke is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Wizards. Solomon Hill and Bruno Caboclo could see additional minutes off the bench on Friday night but neither player is worth a roster spot in standard leagues.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson (right heel soreness) is doubtful to participate in Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    It sounds like another missed game for Anderson, which means open minutes for Grayson Allen, Jae Crowder and Bruno Caboclo potentially. If you want to swing for a home run Caboclo is worth a streaming pickup as he can accumulate numbers rapidly when he gets on the floor.

    Jonas Valančiūnas will play against the Bulls on Wednesday after recovering from an illness.

    Jonas missed the past two games due to his recent ailment. Bruno Caboclo and Solomon Hill could see a decrease in minutes while Jaren Jackson Jr. could see his role diminish slightly with the return of Valančiūnas.

    Jonas Valanciunas (illness) has been downgraded to out for Monday’s game against the Pacers.

    Valanciunas, Brandon Clarke and Kyle Anderson will all miss this game. Solomon Hill will start at the four with Jaren Jackson Jr. moving to the five. Also, look for some extra minutes for Miles Plumlee and Bruno Caboclo.

    Bruno Caboclo had 12 points, 13 rebounds and three steals in Sunday's 115-107 win over the Timberwolves.

    Caboclo saw extra run with Jonas Valanciunas (illness) missing the game and Brandon Clarke (left hip soreness) leaving early. It also helped that Jaren Jackson Jr. fouled out in only 19 minutes. Valanciunas shouldn't be out long, but Clarke may need some rest and Caboclo may be worth keeping an eye on in DFS if so.

    Brandon Clarke (left hip soreness) will not return to Sunday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    Clarke's hip has been bothering him for some time now and after aggravating the injury it's safe to assume he's going to need some rest. Bruno Caboclo should make a few appearances if Clarke needs to miss any time.
