Gerald Green Appears Good To Go For Thursday

Houston Rockets guard/forward Gerald Green (ankle) is in uniform and going through shootaround for Thursday's game against the Golden State Warriors. If you wanted to play him tonight, feel free to fire him up on DFS sites. He looks like he will not have any restrictions on the night.

Maurice Harkless Remains Out On Friday

Portland Trail Blazers guard/forward Maurice Harkless (knee) remains out for Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Harkless' knee issue refuses to go away, and this is the 10th straight game he will have missed. With Seth Curry (knee) also out, Evan Turner and Nik Stauskas will see some extra work on the night.

Alex Len Is Available On Thursday

Atlanta Hawks center Alex Len (ankle) is available to play versus the Denver Nuggets on Thursday. He was active for Tuesday's game also, but the Hawks may have overworked him with 32 minutes. There is a possibility that Atlanta puts him on a minutes restriction tonight, and we could see his playing time hover somewhere... Read More

Seth Curry Out On Friday Night

Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry (knee) is out of Friday's contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team is calling it a right patellar bone bruise, and he is day-to-day going forward. Curry has seen time at the three perimeter positions, and his absence should open up a few extra minutes for Evan Turner and... Read More

Draymond Green Will Have Minutes Restriction

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (toe) will be on a minutes restriction, according to head coach Steve Kerr. There is no timetable for how long the limit will last but Kerr did cite Golden State's busy schedule as one of the reasons. The team plays on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Green will start versus... Read More

Gerald Green Is A Game-Time Decision On Thursday

Houston Rockets guard/forward Gerald Green (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the Golden State Warriors. Green suffered a right ankle sprain last Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs and has been inactive for the previous two games. The Rockets are the first game of the night, meaning DFS owners will have... Read More

Gary Clark Will Play On Thursday

Houston Rockets forward Gary Clark (hip) will play on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors. Clark has been adamant about his availability for tonight's contest, so this doesn't come as surprising news. With Carmelo Anthony no longer active for the Houston Rockets, Clark will see an increased role, but he still isn't worth owning in... Read More

Danny Green Is Probable For Friday

Toronto Raptors guard/forward Danny Green (back) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Boston Celtics. Green exited Wednesday's contest with back tightness and did not return in the club's loss. The Celtics are a key game versus a division rival, and it sounds like Green will be in the starting lineup. Check back... Read More

Omri Casspi Probable For Friday

Memphis Grizzlies forward Omri Casspi (knee) is listed as probable for Friday's contest against the Sacramento Kings. Casspi has missed the team's previous five games due to right knee soreness, and his addition to the lineup will be a welcoming sight for a depleted Grizzlies depth chart. Unfortunately, his return does very little for fantasy... Read More

Rudy Gay Listed As Active On Thursday

San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay (heel) will return from his one-game absence on Thursday. Unfortunately, Gay has missed four of his last five contests due to a right heel issue that has been dealing with inflammation, but Wednesday's vacancy from the lineup was purely for precautionary purposes. However, preventive maintenance could become a routine... Read More

Taurean Prince Listed As Out On Thursday

Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince (Achilles) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets. Prince was dealing with a sprained right ankle recently, but this is the first news we have heard of him struggling with an Achilles issue. Deandre Bembry should see a more significant role tonight and is worth a... Read More

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Doesn't Practice Thursday

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. Beat writer Rick Bonnell believes "the chances of [Kidd-Gilchrist] playing against the 76ers on Saturday are remote at best." The Hornets injury report on Friday should shed better light on the situation. If he isn't able to play, Miles Bridges is the biggest beneficiary.

Brandon Ingram To See Some Time At Point Guard

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Brandon Ingram will play some point guard minutes with Rajon Rondo (hand) out three to five weeks. Luke Walton also mentioned Lance Stephenson and Svi Mykhailuk as guys "who can play point guard," as well as LeBron James and Lonzo Ball. What all of this means is that there is no... Read More

Carmelo Anthony's Tenure With The Rockets Is Over

Houston Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony has seen his brief stop in Houston come to an end. The 34-year-old played in 10 games for Houston, averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds, but his negative -6.3 plus/minus rating, which was stemmed by his poor defense, was too much for the Rockets to overlook. The Rockets don't plan... Read More

Spencer Dinwiddie Scores 18 Points

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one three-pointer in 29 minutes on Wednesday. The injury to Caris Levert (ankle) has opened up a huge opportunity for Dinwiddie, who could provide mid-round value with his increased role. The 25-year-old isn't a great fit next to D'Angelo...

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Returns After Brief Scare On Wednesday

Brooklyn Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returned to Wednesday's game after a brief exit, finishing with 14 points, nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo was a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor on Wednesday night, scoring 12 points and providing three rebounds, one assist and one block. Unfortunately, Adebayo picked up five quick fouls and was only able to play 10 minutes. The 21-year-old has been brilliant during the season in the limited action he... Read More

Josh Richardson Is Mediocre On Wednesday

Miami Heat guard/forward Josh Richardson scored 15 points to go along with five rebounds, five assists and two three-pointers during Wednesday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Since Goran Dragic (knee) returned to the starting lineup on Monday, Richardson hasn't been his explosive self on the stat sheet, but there is nothing to worry about going... Read More

Goran Dragic Posts Another Quality Performance

Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic scored 21 points with three rebounds and four assists on 8-for-15 shooting from the floor during Wednesday night's road victory over the Brooklyn Nets. After a knee injury kept him out of two contests last week and he scored zero points on Saturday, Dragic appears to be back to his... Read More

Hassan Whiteside Gets Himself Into Foul Trouble Again

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside put together a double-double in limited minutes on Wednesday. Whiteside produced 14 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 22 minutes, making it the second game in a row that foul trouble has restricted him to 22 minutes. In fact, the 29-year-old is averaging 4.5 fouls committed per... Read More

Justise Winslow Posts Season-High 11 Rebounds

Miami Heat forward Justise Winslow got another start at power forward on Wednesday, recording six points, 11 rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes of action. Winslow did disappoint by going 2-for-8 from the floor, recording four turnovers and providing no defensive statistics, but coach Erik Spoelstra seems to be locked in on Winslow as... Read More

Rodney McGruder Scores 10 Points Against Brooklyn

Miami Heat guard/forward Rodney McGruder scored 10 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists and one steal on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets in 34 minutes of action.

Leading into the Mayakoba, Dufner had missed seven of his last 12 cuts and only had provided one top-40 result during that time frame. This week, the... Read More

Andrew Landry Will Try And Build From Last Year's RSM Finish

Andrew Landry heads back to the RSM Classic after last year's share of fourth place at Sea Island Resort. The American's precise game off the tee will help him again, but Landry needs to clean up his recent struggles with his putter and lack of scoring upside if he wants to provide another high-end finish....

Bronson Burgoon Tries To Find Consistency At Sea Island

Bronson Burgoon comes into the RSM Classic having made only 11 of 23 cuts during the 2018 calendar year. Sea Island is a course that rewards accuracy off the tee and a pristine short game, and the American doesn't seem like a natural fit for either of those two statistics. In his last 24 rounds...

Kevin Durant Scores 29 Points Without Draymond Green

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 29 points during Tuesday's win over the Atlanta Hawks. Durant hit nine of 23 shots and 11 of 11 free throws to go along with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes.

Quinn Cook Rebounds On Tuesday

Golden State Warriors guard Quinn Cook was able to recover from Monday night's seven-point outing with 18 points, four rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes on Tuesday.
