Coby White Will Play Through Ankle Injury

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White (ankle) says he will play Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons. White tweaked his ankle during his pregame routine, but the injury is not enough to keep him out of the lineup. White will resume his normal role off the bench.

Aron Baynes Ruled Out Ahead Of Thursday Night

Phoenix Suns center Aron Baynes (hip) has already been ruled out Thursday night against the New Orleans Pelicans. Baynes sat Tuesday's loss to the Sacramento Kings with a hip contusion and will miss his second straight on Thursday. The fact he is ruled out a day in advance is not a great sign. Frank Kaminsky...

Golden State Warriors forward/center Draymond Green (heel) will not play Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks. Green is dealing with heel soreness and also banged his elbow Tuesday night.

Aron Baynes Ruled Out Against Kings

Phoenix Suns center Aron Baynes (hip) will not play Tuesday against the Sacramento Kings. Baynes picked up a hip injury Monday night against his former team, the Boston Celtics.

Derrick White Will Sit Wednesday Night

San Antonio Spurs guard Derrick White (foot) will not play Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. White is dealing with some foot soreness, but the fact he was ruled out a day in advance is a little concerning.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/19/19): NBA DFS Lineups

The showtime Los Angeles Lakers headline Tuesday's four-game slate. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have lead the Lakers to a 11-2 record and currently sit atop the Western conference.

Patrick Beverley Will Play Against Oklahoma City

Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley (calf) will play Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Beverley was questionable with a calf injury, but has healed up enough to play without a minutes restriction on Monday.

Ricky Rubio Doubtful With Back Spasms

Phoenix Suns point guard Ricky Rubio (back) is doubtful to play Monday night against the Boston Celtics. Rubio popped up on the injury report late after suffering back spasms.

Tyson Chandler Will Rest Monday

Houston Rockets center Tyson Chandler (rest) will sit the first night of a back-to-back on Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Carmelo Anthony Signing With Portland

Free-agent forward Carmelo Anthony will be signing with the Portland Trail Blazers, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

If you need a scorer, Anthony might be worth... Read More

Mitchell Robinson Cleared To Play Off Bench Thursday

New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson (concussion) will play, but he will come off the bench against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night.

Brandon Ingram Remains Sidelined Thursday

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. Ingram was being treated as a true game-time decision, so it appears he will return sooner rather than later.

Brandon Ingram A Late Scratch Monday Night

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram (knee soreness) will not play Monday night against the Houston Rockets. This comes as a surprise with no previous reports of the injury.
