2 weeks agoOklahoma City Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari (calf) will play against the Houston Rockets Thursday night. Gallinari was inactive, then upgraded to questionable before being able to play after missing one game with the injury. Gallinari should return to the starting lineup, pushing Darius Bazley back to the bench where he will lose mostly all his fantasy value.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Erik Horne

2 weeks agoPortland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside (illness) will play Thursday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Whiteside was dealing with an upper respiratory illness, but seems to have recovered enough to play Thursday. There is no report of any restrictions, so he should be good to go with his normal role. He faces the Timberwolves who are without center Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) again.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Casey Holdahl

2 weeks agoMinnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) will not play Thursday against the Portland Trail Blazers. Towns continues to creep towards a return after going through practice and being listed as a game-time decision. However, it appears Towns will still need more time to recover. Gorgui Dieng could feast against Portland with Hassan Whiteside (illness) possibly out or limited.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Jace Frederick

2 weeks agoPhiladelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (hand) will undergo surgery on his left hand Friday and will be re-evaluated in one to two weeks. Embiid went viral after suffering a gruesome dislocated finger on Tuesday. After further evaluation, it was revealed Embiid tore a ligament in his left hand and will undergo the surgery Friday. With Embiid out for the foreseeable future, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Al Horford are the biggest beneficiaries right now. The Sixers have yet to announce the replacement starter, but candidates to increase in value are Matisse Thybulle, Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski

2 weeks agoNew York Knicks forward Julius Randle (personal) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. He didn't play in Wednesday's game and will sit out his second straight contest here. It's unclear why he's away from the team, so fantasy owners should consider him questionable for Sunday. Kevin Knox and RJ Barrett will see more minutes if Markieff Morris (neck) remains sidelined on Friday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NY Knicks PR

2 weeks agoNew Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (elbow) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the New York Knicks. This marks the third game in a row that Holiday has sat out due to a left elbow issue. There's a good chance that Holiday sits out of Saturday's contest as well. Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball will see increased playing time going forward. Ball has better fantasy value, but Hart has some cheap DFS value.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

2 weeks agoCleveland Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. (knee) is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks. He suffered a left knee sprain and the team said he'd be re-evaluated in two weeks. The Cavs have pushed back that timetable, which makes it tough to hold Porter in most formats. Dante Exum, Cedi Osman, and Brandon Knight will see more minutes coming their way. Exum has the most fantasy upside out of the trio.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Kelsey Russo

2 weeks agoMinnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) is listed as a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Towns has been sidelined since December 13 due to a left knee issue. He'd be under a minutes limit if he does manage to play. Fantasy owners will have to check back closer to tip-off after Towns has a chance to test out his knee. Gorgui Dieng will continue to have fantasy value until Towns returns to the court.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Dane Moore

2 weeks agoPortland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside (illness) was unable to get through Thursday's shootaround. He's listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Blazers will likely wait until after warm ups to make a decision on Whiteside. Anthony Tolliver would be pushed into a bigger role on Thursday. He could make for a cheap streaming option, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Casey Holdahl

2 weeks agoDallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) has been ruled out for the upcoming back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday. The Mavs are going to continue to take the cautious approach on his sore right knee. There's a chance that he gets out there against the Warriors on Tuesday. Maximilian Kleber and Dwight Powell will continue to split up the minutes. Both players will have increased fantasy value until Porzingis returns.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tim Cato

2 weeks agoPhiladelphia 76ers guard/forward Matisse Thybulle (knee) is available for Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics. He missed nearly three weeks of action due to a right knee issue. He'll most likely be under a minutes limit for his first game back. Furkan Korkmaz and James Ennis will see less minutes going forward. Thybulle has some defensive fantasy value once he's back to full speed.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

2 weeks agoHouston Rockets guard Eric Gordon (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It's the same knee that Gordon had a procedure on earlier in the season. Most likely the Rockets are going to take the cautious approach and have Gordon sit out here. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore should see more minutes coming their way. McLemore is the better fantasy option or streaming choice between the two.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

2 weeks agoWashington Wizards forward Davis Bertans (quad) is available for Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. He's been sidelined since December 21 due to a right quad issue. Bertans is most likely going to be under a minutes limit for his first game back. Anzejs Pasecniks will see less minutes coming his way. Bertans probably won't have value right away, but he should be reliable once he's back to full speed.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Fred Katz

2 weeks agoOklahoma City Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Houston Rockets. He was listed as out on the injury report, but something must have changed during shootaround. Darius Bazely would head back to the bench and lose his streaming appeal if Gallinari plays. Fantasy owners will need to check back closer to tip-off.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Maddie Lee

2 weeks agoChicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for the foreseeable future. An MRI confirmed that Carter has a high ankle sprain, so he's likely going to miss multiple weeks. Thaddeus Young and Daniel Gafford should have fantasy value while Carter is sidelined. Both are worth looking at, but Young is the better option between the two. Luke Kornet could get into the rotation, but won't see enough minutes to warrant adding in most formats.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Shams Charania

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out.
