1 week agoSacramento Kings power forward/center Marvin Bagley has missed each of his team’s past eight contests due to a foot ailment, but head coach Luke Walton expects him to get back into the mix for Monday’s contest versus the Orlando Magic. His return comes at a fortuitous time with Richaun Holmes officially ruled out for multiple weeks. Bagley has scored in double figures in all nine of his appearances this year, yet he is to exceed the 28-minute mark in any single contest. That minutes cap is likely to remain intact Monday, although his future outlook could be on the upswing should he stay healthy.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Jason Anderson

1 week agoThe Orlando Magic have three key pieces to its puzzle tagged as questionable ahead of Monday’s contest versus the Sacramento Kings in Aaron Gordon, D.J. Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams. All three players were absent from Friday’s loss, with Terence Ross seeing an increased role off the bench and Markelle Fultz taking on a larger role among the starting five. It’s been a stop and start season for Gordon, who has averaged 13.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest, with a larger load upon his shoulders with both Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu out of the mix. Check back closer to tip-off to get a read on all three, whose status will play an integral role in many lineups across Monday’s slate.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoThe New Orleans Pelicans have a significant trio of players listed as questionable to suit up for Monday’s game versus the Detroit Pistons in Jrue Holiday, Derrick Favors and J.J. Redick. All three were held out of the team’s drubbing Saturday against Boston, with Josh Hart and Jaxson Hayes likely to continue seeing the largest increase in roles should all three remain absent. Holiday has missed each of the team’s previous four contests due to an elbow injury, but is likely the most significant to New Orleans keeping pace in the crowded Western Conference. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final update on all three Pelicans and their status for the contest.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Pelicans

1 week agoSacramento Kings power forward/center Richaun Holmes has been ruled to be absent for the next 2-3 weeks as he deals with an injury to his right shoulder joint. His absence will likely pave the way for Marvin Bagley, Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles to all see increased minutes over roughly the next month. Holmes has had a breakout 2019-20 campaign, on pace to set new career highs in scoring (13.1), rebounding (8.5) and blocked shots (1.4) on a nightly basis. Owners that can stash Holmes in an IR slot will be able to wait out his recovery, but all others can be best served moving on as the Sacramento frontcourt takes new shape over the next handful of weeks.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: James Ham

1 week agoDenver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap has been sidelined for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers due to a left knee contusion, which will mark his third consecutive contest out of the mix. His absence is likely to continue paving the way for Jerami Grant to see an extended role in the frontcourt, although his fantasy value is intrinsically tied to Millsap remaining absent. The 14-year veteran has logged just two double-doubles in the last two months, leaving him limited fantasy value even once he returns to action, with his next chance coming Wednesday against Charlotte.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Nick Kosmider

1 week agoAtlanta Hawks small/power forward De'Andre Hunter will suit up for Sunday’s contest versus the Brooklyn Nets after having previously been tagged as questionable due to foot pain. Hunter will start his 17th consecutive game and likely see an increased offensive role with Trae Young (hamstring) unavailable. Hunter’s fantasy production has fluctuated on a nightly basis over the past month, so while he should see a higher level of usage against an up-tempo unit such as Brooklyn, it does come with a significant amount of volatility.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Chris Kirschner

1 week agoToronto Raptors center Marc Gasol will remain sidelined for Sunday’s game versus the San Antonio Spurs due to a left hamstring strain. He last suited up Dec. 16, with his absence likely to continue paving the way for Serge Ibaka to see significant minutes in the frontcourt. It has been a struggle in 2019-20 for Gasol, who has shot a career-low 36.4 percent from the floor in his 27 appearances this year. Head coach Nick Nurse was optimistic when listing Gasol as questionable, which should bode well for his return sooner rather than later. His next chance at playing comes Wednesday against Oklahoma City.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Josh Lewenberg

1 week agoToronto Raptors power forward/center Pascal Siakam has been given the green light to return for Sunday’s game versus the San Antonio Spurs. Siakam has missed each of the team’s previous 11 contests due to a groin injury, with his return likely capping the fantasy value of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Serge Ibaka. Siakam is on pace to achieve the ultra-rare feat of potentially winning the league’s Most Improved Player Award for the second consecutive year, averaging 25.1 points and 8.0 rebounds per contest in the 27 games that he has appeared. He will have a minutes limit in his first game back, which should eliminate his DFS value, while season-long owners can toss him back into the lineup.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Eric Smith

1 week agoAtlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young has been ruled out for Sunday’s game versus the Brooklyn Nets due to a left hamstring strain. Young’s absence marks his fourth contest on the sidelines this season, paving the way for Brandon Goodwin to enter the starting five and see a significant DFS role. Young had been seeing an enormous offensive workload over the last five games, having logged three double-doubles in that stretch. His next chance at returning to action comes Tuesday against Phoenix.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Malika Andrews

1 week agoIndiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Brogdon is reportedly dealing with strep throat and was unable to play on Friday. The Pacers are likely going to wait until later in the day on Monday to make their final decision. Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell would be asked to split up the extra minutes if Brogdon sits out. Fantasy owners should check back for more information on Monday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: J.

1 week agoGolden State Warriors guard D'Angelo Russell (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. He's been out since late December due to a bruised right shoulder. There's a good chance that Russell plays on Sunday, but fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off. Alec Burks won't see as many chances if Russell is back on Sunday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Connor Letourneau

1 week agoGolden State Warriors forward Damion Lee isn't eligible to play in Sunday's game versus the Memphis Grizzlies. Lee has run out of two-way days, so the team must finalize a long term agreement with him. Marquese Chriss was waived earlier in the week to clear a roster spot for Lee. They should get this deal done soon, but Lee isn't allowed to play until it happens. Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III, and Jacob Evans should see increased playing time until Lee is back. Burks is likely going to have the most fantasy value out of the trio.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Logan Murdock

1 week agoBrooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler (hamstring) and guard Garrett Temple (knee) will be available for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Both players missed Friday's game, but appear ready to roll on Sunday. Rodions Kurucs is expected to see less minutes with Temple and Kyrie Irving (shoulder) back in action. Both Chandler and Temple aren't going to have much fantasy value going forward.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Malika Andrews

1 week agoWashington Wizards forward C.J. Miles (wrist) has been waived by the organization on Sunday. He might be out for the season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist. Anzejs Pasecniks has been playing well and the Wizards needed to clear a roster spot for him. He'll be on a full NBA contract, while Miles hopes to sign with a contender later in the season. He won't be on the fantasy radar, so owners can leave Miles on the waiver wire.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Candace Buckner
Share:
1 week agoIndiana Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. He's been dealing with left knee soreness, so he underwent an MRI on Saturday. The MRI results came back clean, so Sabonis shouldn't be sidelined for long. Myles Turner will likely benefit the most if Sabonis is unable to play against the Sixers. Fantasy owners should check back on Monday for more information.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Scott Agness
