4 days agoChicago Bulls small forward Otto Porter has been out since Nov. 6 due to a bruised bone in his left foot and he will now be sidelined into 2020 due to the ailment, the team announced Tuesday. Porter has started all nine games that he has appeared in this season with the team turning to multiple options to replace him on the wing, namely the duo of Kris Dunn and Tomas Satoransky. Averaging just 11.2 points per game, owners can safely allow Porter to recover from the waiver wire in season-long formats, barring an extended injured reserve spot.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Bulls

4 days agoMiami Heat small/power forward Derrick Jones has picked up a late questionable tag for Tuesday’s contest versus the Atlanta Hawks due to an illness. The Heat could have their depth severely tested should Jones be ultimately held out of the mix, with Kz Okpala or Chris Silva potentially in line for increased roles. Jones has played a combined 53 minutes over the last two games, but has combined for just eight points. Check back closer to tip-off to get an update on his status.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

5 days agoMiami Heat guard Goran Dragic (groin) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. This will be the fifth game in a row that Dragic has missed. It doesn't appear he's making much progress at the moment. Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn will benefit the most from the loss of Dragic. Both players are worth looking at for DFS contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

5 days agoMiami Heat guard Justise Winslow (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. This marks the third game in a row that Winslow has missed due to a lower back strain. Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn, and Derrick Jones will benefit in the absence of Winslow. Fantasy owners who are holding Winslow might be without him for a few more games. It doesn't sound like Winslow is making great progress at the moment.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

5 days agoGolden State Warriors forward Damion Lee (hand) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks. However, Lee was questionable for Monday's game and ended up sitting out. It sounds like he's close to being ready to play after missing a month of action due to a right hand issue. He'll likely be eased into action because he hasn't played in a month. Although, fantasy owners should keep an eye on Lee because he could find value on this banged up Warriors team.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Nick Friedell

5 days agoBoston Celtics center Robert Williams (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He's dealing with left hip soreness and getting ruled out a full day in advance is not a good sign. Fantasy owners could be looking at Williams missing a few more games. Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter will split up the center minutes without Williams available. Theis is the better fantasy option between the two.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Boston Celtics

5 days agoBoston Celtics guard Marcus Smart (eye) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He missed Monday's game due to an eye infection, but is expected to return on Wednesday. Fantasy owners will have a better idea about Smart after Wednesday's shootaround. Carsen Edwards won't see much playing time once Smart is ready to play again.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Boston Celtics

5 days agoPortland Trail Blazers guard Kent Bazemore will get his second start against the New York Knicks on Tuesday, according to head coach Terry Stotts. Rodney Hood (Achilles) is done for the season, so Bazemore is likely going to take over his spot in the starting five. He saw 36 minutes on Sunday, but managed just nine points and five rebounds. Bazemore is going to see plenty of minutes, but is more of a deep league option.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Dan Sheldon

5 days agoMiami Heat center Bam Adebayo (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. He was listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bulls due to a groin issue. Adebayo dropped 21 points and 13 rebounds during his 40 minutes against the Bulls. It doesn't appear that this groin issue is going to slow him down at all. Fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about Adebayo sitting out on Tuesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Andre Fernandez

5 days agoAtlanta Hawks forward De'Andre Hunter (illness) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat. Hunter returned on Sunday from his finger issue, but he's dealing with flu-like symptoms now. Deandre Bembry would likely join the starting five if Hunter isn't feeling well enough to play. He could be worth a look as a streaming option or cheap DFS pick without Hunter available.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Chouinard

5 days agoHouston Rockets guard Austin Rivers (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This marks the second game in a row that Rivers has missed with the flu. Ben McLemore and Gary Clark should see extended minutes without Rivers. McLemore has more upside than Clark for streaming purposes.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Jonathan Feigen

5 days agoPhiladelphia 76ers guard/forward Josh Richardson (hamstring) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Denver Nuggets. He's missed the last six games due to a hamstring issue. It's unclear whether or not the Sixers are going to limit Richardson at all on Tuesday. Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle will lose their streaming appeal with Richardson expected to be back in action.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

5 days agoNew Orleans Pelicans forward Derrick Favors (personal) is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to head coach Alvin Gentry. Favors has been away from the team following the death of his mother. He returned to the team over the weekend, but didn't play during Monday's contest. Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hayes will see their minutes reduced with Favors likely back in action on Wednesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Rod Walker

5 days agoBrooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. Head coach Kenny Atkinson said they plan to ramp up Irving's activity over the next week or so. Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to start in the absence of Irving. Dinwiddie is always going to be worth a look as a DFS option when he's in the starting five.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Malika Andrews

He's getting ruled out a full day in advance, which is not a great sign. Fantasy owners should consider Conley doubtful for Friday's game. Joe Ingles will continue to fill in for Conley. He could be worth a look as a DFS option for Wednesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Utah Jazz

5 days agoCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (knee) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season. Tate sustained a mild MCL sprain in his left knee in the third quarter of the team’s Week 14 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Damion Willis was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding roster move. Tate took advantage of all the injuries to the Bengals receiving corps this season, racking up a career-high 40 catches for 575 yards and one touchdown, and is a worthy hold in dynasty leagues heading into his third season.--Joseph Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: CINCINNATI.COM

5 days agoIndianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (foot) has been placed on Injured Reserve ending his season. It's an unfortunate, yet fitting, end to the rookie's season having battled injuries to his hamstring, abdomen, and a broken hand before a fractured foot put him on season-ending IR. Campbell finishes his rookie season with 18 catches for 127 yards and one touchdown. The Colts are still unsure of T.Y. Hilton's (calf) status for their Monday night game vs New Orleans, but it's looking increasingly likely Hilton misses the game. Assuming Hilton is out, Zach Pascal has interesting WR3 value with Marcus Johnson also in the mix in deeper fantasy leagues.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: Zak Keefer

5 days agoThe Pittsburgh Steelers are expecting to get wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and running back James Conner (shoulder) back in time for their Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills. Neither has played since getting injured against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11. Both players are expected to practice this week in what would be a big boost to the Pittsburgh offense as the team looks to remain in the playoff picture. Conner's return would come at an especially good time as Jaylen Samuels is looking questionable for this weekend with a groin injury. That being said, fantasy GMs need to temper their expectations for both players as the Bills have been stout on defense this season.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Dale Lolley on Twitter

5 days agoNew York Jets running back Bilal Powell (ankle, illness) is not expected to play Thursday night at Baltimore. Powell, who was filling in for Le'Veon Bell (illness) injured his ankle at the end of the Jets Week 14 win over the Dolphins. Powell is also apparently dealing with the flu but head coach Adam Gase said the ankle is the bigger concern right now. Powell is yet to officially be ruled out, but all signs are pointing to him not suiting up this week. The good news for New York is Bell is reportedly close to 100 percent and should reclaim his starting role with Ty Montgomery working as a change of pace back. Powell can safely be dropped by those that picked him up for the Miami game.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

5 days agoAtlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley (abdomen) will be out for the remainder of the season after suffering an abdominal injury during the first half of Week 14's win over the Carolina Panthers. Ridley had a big game before the injury, catching five balls for 76 yards and a touchdown but went down before halftime and was unable to stand on his own. He was carted off the field and looked to be in significant pain. With Ridley out look for Russell Gage to slide in as the No. 2 receiver in Atlanta opposite Julio Jones. Gage is worth a look as a flex play in fantasy leagues going forward.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport on Twitter

5 days agoJacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot on Monday and left the locker room using a scooter. Head coach Doug Marrone told reporters that Chark is "week-to-week" with the injury, which puts the remainder of his season in jeopardy. Chark broke out in a big way for Jacksonville in 2019, catching 67 balls for 956 yards and eight touchdowns. With Chark sidelined, look for Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, and Keelan Cole to all see more chances within the Jacksonville passing attack.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Michael DiRocco on Twitter
Share:
5 days agoWashington running back Derrius Guice was diagnosed with a sprained MCL on Monday. Guice left early in his team's Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers after injuring his knee. The second-year running back has dealt with a litany of knee injuries in his short career, most notably a 2018 torn ACL which ended his rookie season. While it is good news that it wasn't Guice's ACL again, this is still yet another setback for the promising running back. There is a strong chance that Washington shuts him down for the final three games of the season as they will be cautious with the situation. Look for Adrian Peterson to handle the early-down work while Chris Thompson will see passing-down duties going forward.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Share:
5 days agoTampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (hamstring) will miss the remainder of the season. Evans got hurt in Week 14 after hauling in a 61-yard catch at the end of the first quarter. He attempted to walk it off but ended up collapsing due to the pain. Needless to say, this is a huge loss for Evans owners who are heading into the fantasy semi-finals. Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson figure to see more work with Evans out, but Chris Godwin will likely be the biggest benefactor.--Joseph Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: USATODAY.com

5 days agoThe Dallas Cowboys released kicker Brett Maher and signed veteran Kai Forbath on Monday. Maher was let go after missing an NFL-leading 10 field goal attempts this season. Forbath, a former training camp participant in Dallas back in 2011, was last seen hitting a 23-yard field goal for the New England Patriots in Week 13 but was released once Nick Folk recovered from an emergency appendectomy. Forbath is worth a look if you need a kicker as Dallas should get him plenty of field goal chances.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport on Twitter

5 days agoToronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby provided another solid line with awesome defense numbers in the 93-92 win over the Bulls on Monday. Anunoby did a bit everything as he scored 10 points with five rebounds and added two steals, two blocks and two assists while connecting on 4-for-9 shooting from the floor in 37 minutes of action. Anunoby has been incredible in his last two games with averages of 14.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 3.0 steals, and 1.5 blocks. If you hung onto him through his rough patch, then you have to be pleased right now.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 days agoColorado Avalanche forward Joonas Donskoi put together a noteworthy performance in his team's 5-4 overtime defeat to the Calgary Flames on Monday, posting a goal and an assist in the losing effort. The Finnish native also finished his night with a plus-one rating, three shots on goal and two blocks in 14:36 of ice time in the contest. Despite having recently been moved off the Avs' top line due to wingers Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog returning from injury, Donskoi continues to showcase his fantasy relevance on the team's second line. The 27-year-old has now collected at least one point in seven of his past ten games (three goals, ten assists) and his newfound consistency has resulted in 27 points, a plus-six rating and 57 shots in 30 contests in 2019-2020. If he's still available in your league (51% owned in Yahoo! leagues), consider scooping him up as a short-term add.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

5 days agoToronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry managed to connect on just 3-for-15 shooting in the narrow win over the Bulls on Monday. Lowry finished the contest with 11 points and added seven rebounds with seven assists and a block in 39 minutes of action. We know Lowry is streaky, but even when his shot is not falling, he still manages to keep owners pleased. The Raptors have the Clippers up next on Wednesday when they will cross paths with their old friend, Mr. Fun Guy, Kawhi Leonard, in his first visit to the North since his departure to warmer weather.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 days agoToronto Raptors center Marc Gasol kept the score table busy on Monday when he filled up the stat sheet in the one-point win over the Bulls. Gasol was coming off a scoreless outing in his previous game to record nine points, nine rebounds, five assists with two steals and four blocks with a make from three in 29 minutes of action. Serge Ibaka once again came off the bench behind Mr. Gasol and Ibaka provided 14 rebounds but struggled with his shot, making just three of 11 from the floor for 11 points. Both of Toronto's big men have been playing well as of late and are both roster worthy in 12-team leagues.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 days agoCalgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk posted a power-play goal and added an assist as his team picked up a 5-4 overtime win against the Colorado Avalanche on Monday. The 21-year-old was noticeable throughout the contest - leading all Flames forward with 18:02 of ice time while also registering three shots on goal and three hits in the victory. After an eight-game stretch in mid-November in which Tkachuk recorded just two points, the tenacious winger has elevated his game of late with seven points (two goals, five assists), four power-play points and 12 shots over his past six tilts. Checking in with 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists), nine power-play points, 85 shots and 53 hits through 32 games, Tkachuk needs to be active in all fantasy lineups each night he takes the ice. He'll look to remain hot versus the Coyotes on Tuesday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

5 days agoChicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine scored all of his 20 points in the first half on Monday in the 93-92 loss to the Raptors. LaVine added some excellent extras with a season-high 11 rebounds and six assists while drilling three triples to go along with a steal and a block in 34 minutes of action. The Raptors did what they do best in the second half, containing the other team's best player, and they did that in this one. LaVine had a chance to steal a win in the dying moments, but he missed a contested shot. LaVine has been excellent this season and is definitely one of the more undervalued players in fantasy.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
