  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Jordan McRae was putting together a solid season before a series of transactions took him out of rhythm.

    McRae opened the year with the Wizards, where he managed 12.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.4 triples in 22.6 mpg over 29 contests. He then moved on to four uneventful games with the Nuggets and reestablished himself with the Pistons, averaging 11.8 points in 24.5 mpg in the last four games of his campaign. All told, McRae delivered top-230/240 value in 8/9-cat leagues and should have solidified his place in the NBA going forward. Deep-league GMs can consider McRae a solid scoring option for their benches if he lands in the right spot.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Coach Dwane Casey said that Brandon Knight (right hamstring strain) is "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Knight, who missed Sunday's game, is likely to re-enter the starting lineup at PG. Knight was seeing a hefty workload prior to the missed game, but the Pistons have gotten back Bruce Brown Jr. and Jordan McRae has a few games under his belt, so we may see the ballhandling responsibilities be dispersed more. Nevertheless, Knight should still see a good amount of minutes and carry value until Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard can get back on the court.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) was able to practice in full on Thursday.

    Brown has missed the last four games but appears on track for a return in the near future. The Pistons have a back-to-back that starts on Saturday and Brown can be considered questionable until we learn more. He will likely see an increase in value with the absence of Derrick Rose (ankle) and Luke Kennard (knee) but the backcourt did get a little bit more crowded yesterday with the addition of Jordan McRae.

    Jordan McRae scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes off the bench in his debut for the Pistons on Wednesday.

    McRae saw action immediately for the Pistons who are dealing with a number of injuries. McRae is worth streaming in 16-team leagues while the Pistons are injured and is worth watching in shallower leagues to see how his role develops in Detroit.

    Jordan McRae is available to make his Pistons debut for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    McRae will be available to play within hours of signing with his new team. He is likely to see minutes on Wednesday as the Pistons are dealing with several injuries to their backcourt. He is worth watching in standard leagues while he should be looked at as a sneaky DFS tournament play.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Pistons have claimed Jordan McRae off of waivers on Wednesday.

    McRae agreed to a buyout with the Nuggets in the beginning of the week and will now help a depleted Pistons backcourt. McRae might see increased opportunity with the Pistons and could be worth a speculative-add.

    SG, Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets have agreed to a buyout with Jordan McRae, and the Suns have emerged as McRae's likely destination per Adrian Wojnarowksi.

    McRae was putting up career-best numbers this year as a member of the Wizards but played sparingly after being traded to Denver. He's got some nice scoring ability but figures to remain in tough for minutes behind Devin Booker in Phoenix. Still, he should see more playing time with the Suns, putting him on the watch list in deeper leagues.

    Nursing a right ankle sprain, Jordan McRae is probable to make his debut on Saturday against the Suns.

    McRae is going to have a hard time emerging with as much fantasy value in Denver. He had some intrigue in Washington while everyone was injured, but if he is coming off the bench for the Nuggets it will be a lot tougher for him to crack standard league value. He's shaping up to be a deep league play.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Washington Wizards

    The Nuggets traded Shabazz Napier, who was acquired in the massive 12 player early Wednesday morning, to the Wizards in exchange for Jordan McRae.

    The Wizards are a much more fantasy-friendly situation for Napier than the Nuggets, as he has a chance to stake claim to the starting point guard position. Ish Smith and Isaiah Thomas remain looming to syphon minutes as this may ultimately be a timeshare as a result, but it is a situation to monitor moving forward.

    The Wizards have traded Jordan McRae to the Nuggets for the recently acquired Shabazz Napier.

    McRae joins a Nuggets team that has seen a massive overhaul to it's bench over the past 24 hours. He should slot in as a score first guard/wing off the team's bench. His value takes a hit surrounded by much more talent on the Nuggets than with the Wizards.

    Jordan McRae (right ankle sprain) took part in Wednesday's practice and will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup vs. the Mavs.

    McRae had some streaming appeal when the Wizards were dealing with several injuries. As the Wizards get their injured players back, McRae just doesn't have the opportunity to produce streaming appeal at this time. He has shown an ability to score in bunches when given the opportunity and is someone to watch moving forward. At this time, he doesn't belong on standard league rosters. Troy Brown Jr. could lose some minutes when McRae does ultimately return.

    Jordan McRae's sprained right ankle will force him out of Monday's matchup with the Warriors.

    That'll be McRae's fourth straight game on the sidelines due to the right ankle. The major beneficiary is Troy Brown Jr., and Gary Payton II should also see a more stable slot in the Wizards' rotation. McRae does not need to be held in standard leagues, and still needs to prove he is a 14-team option when competing on a healthy roster. He is more of a points league play due to his subpar field goal percentage.

    Jordan McRae will sit out Saturday's contest vs. the Nets due to his sprained right ankle.

    As long as McRae sits Troy Brown Jr. should find himself with standard league value. Gary Payton II is also more intriguing while McRae is out. McRae has some scoring upside for the Wizards, but there are a lot of mouths to feed, and he will have a tough time delivering points while Bradley Beal is running the offense.

    Jordan McRae (sprained right ankle) will miss Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    McRae will miss his second consecutive game on Thursday after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's high-scoring affair vs. the Hawks. Troy Brown Jr. will likely have an increase in fantasy value for as long as McRae is sidelined while Gary Payton II could also get additional minutes.

    Jordan McRae (sprained right ankle) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    McRae left Sunday's game with the injury and was once listed as questionable for Tuesday's game, so he's not likely to miss too much more time. With Bradley Beal back in the rotation, McRae doesn't need to take up a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
