1/8:Montreal Canadiens goaltender Antti Niemi will be in net against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday. Carey Price started on Monday against the Minnesota Wild and will be getting the night off. Niemi has garnered a 6-4-1 record this season, although his 4.01 goals-against average and .881 save percentage leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily, the Red Wings are not the most formidable opponent as they sit 24th in the league in goals per game (2.77). Niemi is a mediocre fantasy play for Tuesday night but can be started if managers are desperate. There are likely better options available.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: Montreal Canadiens
1/8:Memphis Grizzlies power forward JaMychal Green is questionable for Wednesday’s contest against the San Antonio Spurs due to left shoulder soreness. Green was able to go for eight points and 10 rebounds versus the Spurs on Saturday before fouling out, although it appears he may not be totally healthy even if he does play Wednesday. Should he sit out, figure Ivan Rabb to potentially see more minutes, but for there to be a larger reliance on Jaren Jackson Jr. Check back closer to tip, as Green could present a solid punt play should he be cleared early enough in the day.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Memphis Grizzlies

1/8:Montreal Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber is expected to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings after taking a puck to the face on Monday. Weber missed the first 24 games of the season as he was recovering from offseason knee surgery. He has tallied six goals, six assists, and a plus-eight rating through 19 games. Weber is an integral part of the Canadiens' blueline. He is the power-play quarterback and possesses a bomb of a shot. Weber is worthy of ownership in all fantasy formats as long as he is healthy. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: Stu Cowan
1/8:Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. is questionable to suit up for Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns due to mid-back tightness. Smith has been fairly quiet over his last three contests, averaging just 7.3 points per game. Despite the minutes total being fairly equal to his rookie campaign, Smith has had a tough time getting out of the blocks after his wrist injury, with many of his category contributions lower than they were in 2017-18 despite an increased shooting percentage. Check back closer to tip Wednesday to get an update on Smith’s status.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/8:Memphis Grizzlies small forward Dillon Brooks will miss his second straight contest Wednesday versus the San Antonio Spurs due to right toe soreness. Brooks dropped 15 points in his last contest prior to being sidelined again, unable to string together a stretch where he can warrant becoming a fantasy commodity. He will have until Saturday to see if he can suit up against the Miami Heat, with his minutes having been fairly spread around, meaning one player doesn't appear to be in line to benefit from another Brooks absence.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Memphis Grizzlies

1/8:Portland Trail Blazers small/power forward Maurice Harkless will be in street clothes for Wednesday’s contest versus the Chicago Bulls due to left knee soreness. Harkless was able to log just nine scoreless minutes in Monday’s game before being forced to the sidelines, with the fact that he was ruled out over 24 hours in advance of tip-off not being a positive sign moving forward. Harkless has strung together some solid performances when given minutes this season, but likely cannot justify being rostered in most formats at this point.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Casey Holdahl

1/8:Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Luka Doncic has been listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game versus the Phoenix Suns due to a lower back strain. Despite picking up an injury designation, Doncic was able to practice Tuesday, which could bode well for his chances of suiting up. Doncic dropped 27 points in 35 minutes Monday versus the Lakers, looking to keep that momentum rolling against a Suns team that is one of weakest in the league at slowing down opponents' scoring (115.1 points per game allowed).--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/8:Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Kevin Huerter will miss Tuesday’s contest versus the Toronto Raptors due to a left calf strain. Huerter had initially been listed as probable, before being knocked down to questionable and eventually out. The Hawks have a plethora of wings at their disposal, but with Huerter joining Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince on the bench, they’ll be thin on the perimeter against Toronto. Huerter's next chance to suit up comes Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Chouinard

1/8:New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors due to a sprained left ankle. Ntilikina will be in street clothes for the second straight contest, a step backward after seeing some consistent playing time in mid-December. There are no obvious players in line to see an uptick due to Ntilikina’s absence, with his next chance to suit up coming Friday versus the Indiana Pacers.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/8:Indianapolis Colts wide receivers T.Y. Hilton (ankle), Dontrelle Inman (finger, shoulder) and Ryan Grant (toe) and tight end Eric Ebron (hip) all missed practice on Tuesday. Grant sat out in the wild-card win and will be questionable to play against the Chiefs this Saturday. While Hilton hasn't practiced much at all to close out the year, he hasn't missed any games and could have a monster game against KC in what's expected to be a high-scoring contest. The same can be said for Ebron, who has become one of the most reliable fantasy tight ends this year. Inman has emerged as the No. 2 wideout behind Hilton and will also have plenty of DFS appeal against the Chiefs.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Colts.com

1/8:Toronto Raptors shooting guard Danny Green will miss Tuesday’s contest versus the Atlanta Hawks due to rest purposes. Fred Van Vleet will take his place in the starting lineup, making his eighth consecutive start, but this time alongside Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard. Green is coming off having made five three-pointers in his previous contest, bringing himself up to 40.8 percent from deep on the season. His next chance to return to action comes Friday against the Brooklyn Nets.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Blake Murphy

1/8:The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a deal to make Bruce Arians their next head coach on Tuesday, according to sources. Arians took a year off after serving as the Cardinals head coach for five seasons. It's good news for Tampa's offense as a whole, and the Bucs front office will be hoping that Arians can finally help quarterback Jameis Winston turn a corner. They have the weapons in the passing game with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but the Bucs will be focusing on bolstering their running game heading into the 2019 season. There is a lot to like from this offense for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Adam Schefter
1/8:Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard J.J. Redick has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game versus the Washington Wizards due to lower back tightness. Furkan Korkmaz will enter the starting lineup in Redick’s place and becoming a high-upside DFS play for the evening. Redick finds himself in the midst of another strong offensive season, averaging a career-high 18.3 points per game while shooting nearly eight three-pointers per contest. His next chance to take the floor comes Wednesday on the second leg of a back-to-back versus Washington.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Serena Winters

1/8:Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest versus the Cleveland Cavaliers due to a shoulder injury. Turner is additionally dealing with a broken nose, and will cede way to Domantas Sabonis, who is in line for an increased workload. Kyle O’Quinn could also be an acceptable DFS punt play, having played 17 minutes in Turner’s previous absence. His next chance to return to the court comes Wednesday against the Boston Celtics.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Scott Agness

1/8:Brooklyn Nets forward DeMarre Carroll (knee) and guard/forward Joe Harris (ankle) are listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Both players are reportedly feeling better and are expected to play on Wednesday. Shabazz Napier and Rodions Kurucs will take a hit in value and minutes with Carroll and Harris likely returning.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Brooklyn Nets

1/8:Brooklyn Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. This will be the fifth straight game that RHJ is sidelined due to a right adductor issue. DeMarre Carroll (knee) is probable for Wednesday and should significantly benefit from the loss of RHJ.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Brooklyn Nets

1/8:Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson (foot) is not listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. Thompson missed practice on Monday, but it appears that was just a rest day for him. Thompson should be fine for Tuesday's game and fantasy owners should feel safe using him for this one.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/8:Washington Wizards forward Otto Porter will come off the bench once again in Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, according to head coach Scott Brooks. It sounds like Porter will return to the starting five, but Brooks wants to see him play a little more without restrictions off the bench. Porter played well on Sunday and could be worth a look in DFS contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Candace Buckner

1/8:The Baltimore Ravens have already decided that Lamar Jackson will be their starting quarterback in 2019 and that veteran Joe Flacco will not be part of the team. The Ravens will either trade or release the 11th-year pro. Flacco started off the season strong but struggled in Weeks 5-through -9, as the Ravens lost four of five games, before getting hurt against the Steelers (Week 9). The 33-year-old finished the season with a 61.2 completion percentage along with 2,465 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions. He also added 45 rushing yards on 19 attempts. While it is unknown where Flacco, who is the greatest quarterback in Ravens' history, will end up or what his role will be, he will likely start the season as a low-end QB2 at the very best.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: Baltimore Ravens

1/8:Philadelphia 76ers guard/forward Jimmy Butler (illness) is expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Washington Wizards. Butler has missed the last two games due to an illness, but looked good during Monday's practice. Landry Shamet and Furkan Korkmaz will see reduced playing time with Butler back in the rotation.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/8:Atlanta Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will play in Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors. Dedmon is listed as probable and should suit up despite dealing with a minor ankle issue. He's been fairly solid lately and could be worth a look as a cheap DFS option.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris Vivlamore

However, it appears this injury is fairly serious and the Hawks may want to rest Huerter for this one. DeAndre' Bembry and Justin Anderson would see increased playing time without Huerter in the rotation.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris Vivlamore

1/8:New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia (heart) has been cleared to begin baseball activities after a follow-up stress test on Tuesday. Sabathia had an angioplasty surgery in early December but is expected to be ready for spring training. The veteran southpaw was decent in 2018 with a 9-7 record, 3.65 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 140 K's in 153 innings (29 starts). However, he doesn't have much strikeout upside left and will turn 39 next July in his final season. Sabathia will be a shaky deep league streamer based on the matchups.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
1/8:Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat. He did not play in the fourth quarter of Monday's game after pulling his hamstring. It would not be surprising to see the Nuggets play it safe and rest Harris on Tuesday. Malik Beasley would see increased playing time and be a decent option for DFS contests,--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: T.J. McBride

1/8:Kevin Tway overcame some tough obstacles at last week's Sentry Tournament of Champions. The youngster fought through his lack of course experience and a nasty sinus infection to finish tied for 11th at Kapalua. Tway fired a beautiful bogey-free 66 on Thursday and led after the opening round. However, he failed to break 70 in any of his next three rounds and steadily slid down the leaderboard over the weekend. Tway will head to Honolulu for this week's Sony Open, an event that he has struggled in previously. The 30-year-old has missed the cut in two of his three career starts at Waialae. Though he's been playing well, he's a contrarian DFS option at best this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/8:Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running back Todd Gurley (knee) took part in the early walkthrough practice on Tuesday and will also practice on Wednesday. The team will continue to monitor Gurley throughout the week to see how he feels. Gurley was held out of the final two regular season games and had the first-round playoff bye to heal up, so we'd expect him to play in the divisional round against the Rams. He has a little more risk as a high-priced DFS option, but he also has the highest ceiling of any running back.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: TheRams.com - Myles Simmons

1/8:Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder (quad) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Schroder has not missed a game this season due to injury, but is dealing with a left quad contusion. Raymond Felton would soak up a majority of Schroder's minutes if he sits out. Russell Westbrook could see heavier minutes as well.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

Booker did not play on Sunday due to back spasms. He missed Monday's practice and did not participate in shootaround on Tuesday. Josh Jackson would join the starting five without Booker in the rotation. Fantasy owners should check back closer to game time just in case.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Duane Rankin

He's worth using in DFS contests on Tuesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
