1 week agoBoston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (knee) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Thursday's game versus the Milwaukee Bucks. He missed Wednesday's game due to a minor knee issue. Tatum was not expected to miss both games, so fantasy owners should see him on the floor for this one. He could see a higher usage than normal with Jaylen Brown (thumb) listed as questionable.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Jared Weiss

1 week agoOklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams (knee) was unable to suit up for Thursday's practice. He's dealing with a bruised right knee and will be re-evaluated on Friday. The Thunder play on Friday, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect Adams to suit up for that one. Nerlens Noel (ankle) is banged up as well, so Mike Muscala could be asked to play heavy minutes.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Maddie Lee

1 week agoDenver Nuggets guard Gary Harris (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Golden State Warriors. This is the second game in a row that Harris has missed due to a groin issue. It's unclear how long Harris is going to be sidelined. Torrey Craig and Michael Porter Jr. should see increased minutes without Harris available. Porter has more fantasy value than Craig at the moment.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: T.J. McBride

1 week agoDenver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Golden State Warriors. This marks the fifth game in a row that Millsap has missed due to a left knee issue. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will see increased time without Millsap available. Grant is worth owning in most formats while Millsap is sidelined.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: T.J. McBride

1 week agoDallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Porzingis did not play in Wednesday's game due to soreness in his right knee. The Mavs are going to continue to be cautious with Porzingis, so we'll see if he plays on Friday. Maximilian Kleber and Dwight Powell will see increased minutes and value until he's back.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tim MacMahon

1 week agoGolden State Warriors guard Jacob Evans (head) is out indefinitely as he enters the NBA's concussion protocol. He's been diagnosed with a concussion and broken nose. He'll likely wear a protective mask until his nose is fully healed. D'Angelo Russell, Alec Burks, and Jordan Poole will all see increased playing time without Evans available.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Warriors PR

1 week agoWashington Wizards guard Jordan McRae scored 16 points with four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in a 115-106 loss to the Chicago Bulls. McRae has put up some impressive numbers this month, with averages of 18.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.6 triples, 0.9 blocks and 0.8 steals per game. Unfortunately, his 38.3 percent shooting from the field in that span limits his upside. Still, McRae has become a valuable part of the Wizards rotation. Their fast pace of play should allow the 28-year-old to continue his career year. McRae gets a tough matchup against the Raptors, who have played strong defense this year.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoWashington Wizards guard Bradley Beal scored 23 points with four rebounds, four assists, and two triples in a 115-106 loss to the Chicago Bulls. Beal missed some time with a leg injury and returned on Sunday, only to shoot the ball poorly. This game was a more Beal-like performance his fantasy owners are used to seeing, with 61.5/50/83.3 percent shooting splits. Beal was top-five in the NBA in minutes played per game before the injury, so it makes sense that the Wizards are slowly integrating him back into the rotation. That's the only thing holding him back right now, as he's putting up career-highs in points, 27.6, and assists, 6.5. Up next for Beal is matchup with the Raptors, who he dropped 37 on in their most recent meeting.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoMinnesota Timberwolves point/shooting guard Jarrett Culver led his team in scoring for just the second time in his career during Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers with 17 points on 8-for-13 shooting. The absence of Karl-Anthony Towns (knee/illness) has paved the way for Culver to see a sizable role in the Timberwolves' offense on a nightly basis, as the rookie has averaged 15.2 points on 14 shot attempts over his last nine games, all of which have seen him finish in double figures. Entrenched in the starting five, Culver has also shown potential elsewhere in the stat sheet, having added five rebounds and two steals against Indiana. If he remains on the waiver wire in any mid-sized season-long formats or deeper, he is certainly worth the add for the role that he is likely to play over the second half alone.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoMinnesota Timberwolves small/power forward Keita Bates-Diop delivered one of his better performances of the season off the bench despite playing only 17 minutes during Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers. Bates-Diop collected 15 points on 4-for-10 shooting, including going 2-for-3 from long range, and knocked down all five free throws that he attempted. It wasn’t just the scoring column that he attacked, as he also added six rebounds and three assists despite his stunted playing time. With Minnesota still scrambling for offensive punch without Karl-Anthony Towns (knee/illness), Bates-Diop has been a solid infusion of life for the second unit, having scored in double figures in three of his last four outings. He offers solid, if unspectacular, upside as a DFS punt play Friday should Towns remain out of the mix.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoChicago Bulls forward Thaddeus Young scored 18 points with eight rebounds, three triples, two steals, and a block in a 115-106 win over the Washington Wizards. Young is in the midst of his best stretch since the start of the season, with 11.1 points per game on 50 percent shooting from the field and 38.5 percent shooting from deep. The problem for the 31-year-old has been his playing time- he's lost minutes to frontcourt youngsters Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr and, Luke Kornet. Young's best days are clearly behind him, but if he can keep playing well, there's room for minutes in a banged-up Bulls frontcourt. A tough matchup awaits on Friday against the defensively-strong 76ers.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoMinnesota Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng may not remain a fantasy commodity for much longer with All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns likely to return sooner rather than later, but Dieng again proved Wednesday that he has legitimate fantasy upside when given the chance to log consistent starters minutes. During his 29 minutes in a defeat to the Indiana Pacers, he set a new season high by getting up 15 shots, seven of which found the bottom of the bucket en route to a 15-point showing. Additionally, he snagged 11 rebounds and dished out three assists, marking his sixth double-double of the season, all of which have come during starts. Should Towns remain out when the two teams run it back Friday, Dieng should be in line for a similar level of production.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoIndiana Pacers point/shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon collected 21 points in a second consecutive outing during Wednesday’s win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Any concerns of how quickly Brogdon would re-acclimate to the mix following his five-game absence have been quickly squelched, as he added six rebounds and six assists in addition to his 9-for-18 shooting performance. The league’s leader in free-throw percentage (92.3) gets a rematch versus Minnesota on Friday, a contest that should be advantageous for those who roster him in both season-long and DFS formats.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoIndiana Pacers power forward/center Domantas Sabonis was virtually unstoppable during Wednesday’s win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, compiling a season-high-tying 29 points on 13-for-17 shooting, while collecting 13 rebounds to record his fifth consecutive double-double. In addition to the scoring and domination on the glass, he also pitched in six assists, raising his average to 4.3 on a nightly basis this season. Indiana’s star big man has firmly entrenched himself in the All-Star conversation, ranking fifth in the league in rebounds per contest (13.1), while also being on pace for a new career-best in scoring (18.1). He carries his elite fantasy production into a rematch with the Timberwolves on Friday.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoChicago Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky recorded 18 points, five assists, three rebounds, one triple, and one steal in a 115-106 win over the Washington Wizards. It's the most points Satoransky has scored in one game this month, powered by his perfect shooting from the charity stripe on seven attempts. The former Wizard has enjoyed a good season, with career-highs in nearly every category except for field-goal and three-point percentage. If Satoransky can start to match efficiency with volume, his numbers will look even better for fantasy owners. Up next is a tough, Friday matchup with the 76ers, who have allowed the third-fewest assists per game in the NBA.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
