1 week agoOklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams will be back in action for Saturday’s contest versus the Portland Trail Blazers following a one-game absence due to a right knee contusion. Adams’ return dampens the fantasy value of Nerlens Noel, who is likely to return to his role as a reserve. Without Danilo Gallinari available, Adams should be tasked with an increased role on the glass, especially when matched up with Blazers center Hassan Whiteside, who is one of four players in the league to average better than 14 rebounds per contest this season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Joe Mussatto

1 week agoOrlando Magic point/shooting guard Michael Carter-Williams will return to action Saturday versus the Golden State Warriors following a 13-game absence due to an AC joint sprain. His return gives head coach Steve Clifford a true backup to point guard Markelle Fultz, although how many minutes Carter-Williams has been cleared for remains up in the air. Having averaged just 5.2 points across 16.3 minutes per contest this season, Carter-Williams holds little fantasy value for the time being, but he has an opportunity to carve out a significant role in the second unit with D.J. Augustin sidelined.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Orlando Magic

1 week agoLos Angeles Lakers power forward/center Anthony Davis has been ruled out for Saturday’s game versus the Houston Rockets due to a back ailment. Davis landed hard on his tailbone nearly two weeks ago and has been absent from game action ever since, paving the way for Kyle Kuzma and Dwight Howard to see increased roles. Davis has reiterated that he won’t rush back from the injury as he continues to rehab. His next chance at taking the floor comes Monday against Boston.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Alykhan Bijani

1 week agoMiami Heat shooting guard Tyler Herro has been listed as questionable to participate in Sunday’s contest versus the San Antonio Spurs due to a left knee bruise. The ailment has kept Herro sidelined for each of the team’s previous two contests, paving the way for Kendrick Nunn to lead the team in scoring in both outings. Herro has fired up on average more than six three-point attempts per contest since the start of the new year, as owners will want to check back on his status prior to tip-off Sunday due to the small slate.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoNew Orleans Pelicans forward/center Derrick Favors enjoyed a perfect 10-for-10 shooting night during his double-double performance in Saturday's loss to the Clippers. He finished with 22 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, adding three assists and one steal to his line in 28 minutes. Favors has had some health issues, but he's quietly turned into a double-double machine since last month. He's also averaging two blocks a game in January, although he didn't manage to record a single one on Saturday. Favors gets a matchup against Jonas Valanciunas and the Grizzlies next, which isn't an easy one.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoGolden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Glenn Robinson III will be held out of Saturday’s game versus the Orlando Magic due to a sprained right ankle. His absence paves the way for Eric Paschall to see a considerable role, especially with Draymond Green (finger) also out of the mix. Ky Bowman has been recalled from the G League to attempt to give Golden State some depth. Robinson’s next chance at returning to action comes Monday against Portland.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoThe Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings struck a deal Saturday that saw small/power forward Trevor Ariza sent to Portland, with shooting guard/small Kent Bazemore highlighting the package that went back to Sacramento. While both wings hold marginal fantasy value, Ariza enters the better situation due to Portland’s need for three-point shooting. Bazemore will have to carve out a niche with the Kings, who boast a plethora of high-scoring wings. Also on the move is Anthony Tolliver, who will join Bazemore in Sacramento, with Caleb Swanigan and Wenyen Gabriel capping off the return for Portland.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

1 week agoToronto Raptors point/shooting guard Fred Vanvleet will get back on the floor for Saturday’s game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves after a five-game absence due to a hamstring ailment. Despite his return to action, he is likely to be held around the 25-minute plateau as head coach Nick Nurse eases him back into action. Vanvleet’s return saps fantasy value primarily from Norman Powell and Terence Davis. Currently fourth in the league in minutes per game (36.3), Vanvleet can soon be expected to resume his traditional minutes allotment.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Ryan Wolstat

1 week agoNew Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball was in triple-double form on Saturday, finishing a 133-130 loss to the Clippers with 18 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds. He shot 7-for-16 from the field and 4-for-9 from deep, adding two steals and one block with six turnovers to his line as well. Ball posted a five-point dud on Thursday against Utah, so he bounced back in a big way. He's set for an exciting battle with JA Morant on Monday. Plenty of point guards have feasted against Memphis this season, so Ball is in a good spot to cook up another good fantasy line.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoLos Angeles Clippers power forward Montrezl Harrell put together a nice 24-point outing in Saturday's win over the Pelicans, shooting 9-for-11 from the floor and 6-for-10 at the charity stripe. Sadly he didn't do much else in 25 minutes of action, but his performance was enough to squeeze out a three-point win. Harrell has now scored 20-plus points in three of the past four games, and he's failed to hit the 20-point mark just twice in 2020. He should be around the same mark again on Tuesday against the Mavericks, who don't have great defensive records against power forwards and centers.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoThe Cleveland Cavaliers second unit will be severely short-handed for Saturday’s game versus the Chicago Bulls with point/shooting guard Brandon Knight and centers Ante Zizic and John Henson unavailable due to injury. Knight will be missing his second consecutive game, while Zizic will be sidelined for the fourth straight outing with an illness. The frontcourt behind the starting duo of Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson will be thin, while Matthew Dellavedova should log added minutes in place of Knight. The next chance that any of the trio have at returning comes Monday against the Knicks.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Kelsey Russo

1 week agoLos Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams was the team's second-leading scorer in Saturday's win over the Pelicans, notching 32 points in 31 minutes off the bench. He shot 7-for-16 from the field and 4-for-7 from downtown, adding 14 points from the line with 15 attempts. Sweet Lou also found time to record five assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block. Williams has dropped at least 20 points in each contest since the turn of the year, and he's been almost unstoppable from three-point range. He'll look to continue the good form against Dallas, who gave up 21 points on 50 percent shooting to Williams in the previous matchup on Nov. 26.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoLos Angeles Clippers small forward Kawhi Leonard led the team to a 133-130 victory over New Orleans on Saturday with a 39-point performance. He had a huge game on both ends of the court, recording five steals and one block. Kawhi's line also included six rebounds and six assists. He now has five straight games with 30-plus points, and he's shooting with very good efficiency. That's bad news for the Mavericks, who the Clippers will face next on Tuesday. Leonard notched 28 points in 28 minutes against Dallas in the previous matchup on Nov. 26.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoNew York Knicks shooting guard/small forward Reggie Bullock has been given the green light to play in Saturday’s game versus the Philadelphia 76ers after a one-game absence due to neck soreness. With RJ Barrett ruled out, Bullock will enter the starting five and likely see a considerable offensive workload, having averaged 9.9 points and five three-point attempts over his last eight contests. Owners banking on Bullock’s marksmanship should be aware that Philadelphia has yielded the fewest made threes (10.0) per game of any team in the league this season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Stefan Bondy

Johnson’s absence, when coupled with that of Kelly Oubre Jr.’s, should pave the way for Mikal Bridges to see a considerable workload on the wing. Johnson has become an integral member of Phoenix’s second unit, having averaged 7.8 points per contest across 38 games in his rookie year. His next chance at getting back on the floor comes Monday against San Antonio.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
