2/9:Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond went for 29 points on a very efficient 12-for-15 shooting night in Friday's 120-103 victory against the New York Knicks across 33 minutes. He also gathered an impressive 20 rebounds with three blocked shots, two assists and a steal while making 5-for-6 from the free-throw line. That's seven straight double-doubles for Drummond since returning from a three-game absence due to concussion. Next up is a battle against the Raptors on Saturday. He posted 11 points with 12 rebounds and a blocked shot in Toronto on Nov. 14 in the first meeting.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN

2/9:New York Knicks power forward Noah Vonleh made the start in Friday's 120-103 road loss against the Detroit Pistons, but he was scoreless across just three minutes before being benched in the first quarter. He misfired on all three of his field-goal attempts. Vonleh was nailed to the pine, and it was small forward Mario Hezonja stepping up with eight points, seven rebounds, two steals and an assist over 33 minutes off the bench. It's uncertain if Vonleh will be back in the starting lineup Saturday against the Toronto Raptors or if he will be nailed to the bench again. His short-term fantasy outlook is murky at best.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN

2/9:New York Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. went for 31 points, eight assists, two rebounds and two steals over 35 minutes in Friday's 120-103 road loss against the Detroit Pistons. He did a decent job from the floor, going 9-for-15 while adding 2-for-5 from behind the three-point line, but he was a dismal 11-for-19 from the free-throw stripe. DSJ is settling in rather nicely in blue and orange, posting 28.0 points, 7.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over the past two outings after a shaky debut on Sunday. Smith appears to be happy to be out of the shadow of Luka Doncic in Dallas, and the happiness is showing in his play. For now.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN

2/8:Utah Jazz shooting guard/small forward Thabo Sefolosha could potentially make his return to action Saturday versus the San Antonio Spurs, having been out since Jan. 5 due to a hamstring injury. Sefolosha was able to practice Friday, which can only be a good sign as it pertains to his potential status. He has seen his minutes plummet in his second season with Utah, averaging just 11.1 minutes per game, which has him on pace for a career low. The Jazz’s depth doesn’t leave for many opportunities for extended minutes for Sefolosha, although he may cut into time previously reserved for the likes of Kyle Korver or Royce O’Neale upon his return.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Utah Jazz

2/8:San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Lonnie Walker IV will likely be held out for his second consecutive contest Saturday versus the Utah Jazz due to a right ankle sprain, officially listed as doubtful. Walker was held out Thursday on the heels of an 0-for-10 shooting performance Wednesday. The Spurs have taken their time allowing the rookie to work his way back from a meniscus tear that he suffered just prior to the start of the year. Walker hasn’t logged consistent minutes yet, giving him very little fantasy value barring another night of massive starter rest for the Spurs.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Paul Garcia

2/8:New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard/small forward E'Twaun Moore has been ruled out for Friday’s contest versus the Minnesota Timberwolves due to a left quad contusion. Moore’s absence will likely allow Frank Jackson to continue seeing a prominent role in the team’s offense, with the rookie averaging 11.2 points per game without Moore on the scene over the last five games. Moore’s next chance to return to action comes Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies, who have held him in check in two previous outings this season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Pelicans

2/8:New Orleans Pelicans center Jahlil Okafor will now miss Friday’s contest versus the Minnesota Timberwolves after having previously been cleared. Okafor was questionable during the day due to a left ankle sprain, but after his status was confirmed to be playing, New Orleans has walked that decision back. Anthony Davis will still figure to have his minutes monitored, so Cheick Diallo figures to potentially hawk a handful of extra minutes without Okafor in the mix. After having started each of his team’s previous nine games, Okafor’s next chance to suit up comes Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies, an outing he should be considered questionable for following Friday’s circumstances.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Pelicans

2/8:Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jeff Teague will make his return to the rotation for Friday’s contest versus the New Orleans Pelicans, having missed his team’s previous eight games due to left foot soreness. Teague’s return comes at a crucial time for the Timberwolves who are playing without Derrick Rose, Tyus Jones and Jerryd Bayless on Friday, with Isaiah Canaan forced into starting duty. It’s unclear how many minutes Teague will get, but season-long owners can at the very least revel in his return to action, as he is averaging a career-high 8.1 assists per game this season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Minnesota Timberwolves

2/8:Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jerryd Bayless will miss Friday’s game versus the New Orleans Pelicans due to a sore right big toe that he picked up Thursday against Orlando. The injury forced him to exit early Thursday without collecting a point in his 27 minutes of action. Minnesota is drastically thin at the point guard spot Friday, although Jeff Teague’s return off the bench should prove to be vital. Isaiah Canaan will enter the starting five, although he’s a volatile DFS option with his minutes total up in the air. Bayless’ next chance to return comes Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Minnesota Timberwolves

2/8:New Orleans Pelicans center Jahlil Okafor has been cleared to play in Friday’s contest versus the Minnesota Timberwolves, having previously been listed as questionable due to a left ankle sprain. Okafor figures to take a hit from a fantasy perspective with the return of Anthony Davis, although the All-NBA forward is expected to be on a minutes restriction of some kind. Okafor has shone over the last nine games without Davis, averaging 18.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest, which should earn him consistent minutes down the stretch run of the season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Andrew Lopez

2/8:Phoenix Suns point/shooting guard Devin Booker will remain out for Friday’s contest versus the Golden State Warriors due to right hamstring tightness. Tyler Johnson was expected to enter the starting five regardless of Booker’s status, but Elie Okobo has been listed as the starting point guard instead. Phoenix will be fighting an uphill battle versus the Warriors without Booker and T.J. Warren, leaving ample offensive opportunities for those Suns that are active. Booker’s next chance to return to action comes Sunday against the Sacramento Kings.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Kellan Olson

2/8:Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Luka Doncic has been given the green light to play in Friday’s game versus the Milwaukee Bucks, having been previously listed as questionable due to a thigh injury. Doncic has seen a massive offensive workload over the previous two games, with Friday serving as another test run for Dallas as they attempt to work out their rotations sans Harrison Barnes, which could free up extra shots for Doncic. The rookie phenom recorded his first career triple-double in his first meeting versus Milwaukee back on Jan. 21, looking for lightning to strike twice Friday.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Brad Townsend

2/8:Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (illness) will play through an illness Friday night against the Denver Nuggets. Embiid was questionable with a stomach bug, but feels good enough to resume his normal starting role. It will be interesting to see how Embiid plays with newly acquired Tobias Harris. It's unlikely Embiid loses much, if any, value with the new addition, but only time will tell.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Keith Pompey

2/8:Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap (ankle) will miss another game Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. Millsap is still dealing with an ankle sprain, but the fact he was questionable Friday is encouraging. In Millsap's absence, Mason Plumlee with get another spot start. Plumlee has played admirably without Millsap and will be a popular DFS pick for Friday night's slate.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Harrison Wind

2/8:Cleveland Cavaliers forward/center Kevin Love (toe) will start Friday night against the Washington Wizards. Love has missed the past 50 games as he recovered from surgery, but will make his long awaited return Friday. Love will almost certainly have a minutes restriction for the first few games he is back as he eases into game shape. With Love returning, Ante Zizic will likely return to the bench and all other big men will see less usage and minutes.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Cayleigh Griffin
