3 weeks agoSan Antonio Spurs point/shooting guard Dejounte Murray has been ruled out for Saturday’s contest versus the Milwaukee Bucks due to personal reasons. Murray has started each of San Antonio’s nine previous games and averaged 12.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists in that stretch. His absence likely paves the way for Patty Mills, Bryn Forbes and Derrick White to see increased roles in the backcourt, thereby becoming an intriguing DFS trio. Murray’s next chance to return to action comes Monday as the Spurs run it back with Milwaukee.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Paul Garcia

3 weeks agoDallas Mavericks point/shooting guard Delon Wright is questionable to suit up for Saturday’s contest versus the Charlotte Hornets due to foot soreness. Wright has averaged 7.8 points per contest primarily off the bench this season, on pace to shoot a new career-best 48.4 percent from the field overall. With his contributions across the stat sheet (3.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists per game), Wright retains DFS punt play value, especially as Dallas scrambles for offensive thump with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (hamstring) out of the mix for the time being. Check back on Wright’s status ahead of tip-off, as his absence would likely pave the way for Seth Curry and Jalen Brunson to see larger roles.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors center Willie Cauley-Stein has picked up a questionable designation for Saturday’s game versus the Detroit Pistons due to an illness. Cauley-Stein has been sidelined for each of Golden State’s past two games, with Marquese Chriss having entered the starting five and becoming a solid short-term fantasy asset. Despite having started 30 consecutive games for the Warriors, Cauley-Stein retains season-long fantasy value only in deeper-sized leagues at this point. Keep an eye on his status ahead of tip-off, as his return would hamper Chriss’ outlook as well.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors point/shooting guard D'Angelo Russell will miss his third straight game Saturday versus the Detroit Pistons due to a shoulder contusion. Russell’s absence has paved the way for Alec Burks to take on a considerable offensive role, which should once again be the case versus the Pistons, even as others such as Glenn Robinson III and Draymond Green also see increased usage. Russell was on fire offensively over his last six games, averaging 27.8 points in that span, including three contests with at least 30 points. His next chance at returning to action comes Monday versus the Kings.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

3 weeks agoAtlanta Hawks small/power forward Jabari Parker will get back onto the floor for Friday’s outing against the Boston Celtics following a three-game absence due to a throat infection. After becoming a fantasy commodity as a starter throughout November and early December, Parker has essentially lost all of his fantasy value with John Collins’ return to the mix. Injuries could change the dynamic of the Atlanta frontcourt at any time, but Parker has a particularly stingy matchup versus Boston on Friday, which should keep him off virtually all rosters.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Atlanta Hawks

3 weeks agoPhoenix Suns power forward/center Frank Kaminsky has been ruled out for Friday’s game versus the New York Knicks due to knee soreness. Kaminsky’s absence marks his third consecutive game on the sidelines with Cameron Johnson and Cheick Diallo likely to continue absorbing his minutes, although neither presents a particularly appealing DFS option. After starting 13 of 14 contests from Nov. 19-Dec. 16, Kaminsky has seen his minutes dwindle significantly, and he can be avoided in season-long formats until he shows signs of reclaiming his former role in the offense.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

3 weeks agoOrlando Magic small/power forward Aaron Gordon has been given the green light to suit up for Friday’s game versus the Miami Heat, as he will reclaim his role in the starting five following a two-game absence due to an Achilles ailment. Gordon’s return is fortuitous for Orlando, who lost fellow frontcourt member Jonathan Isaac for around two months in its last contest due to a knee injury. Gordon has scuffled from the field to the tune of 31.5 percent shooting over his last seven games, but should reprise a large role in the offense.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Orlando Magic

3 weeks agoBoston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown (illness) was able to go through a full practice on Thursday. He's listed as probable for Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Kemba Walker (illness) has been ruled out, so Brown could see the ball in his hands more often. Fantasy owners should double check before tip-off, but Brown should play here.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: A. Sherrod Blakely

3 weeks agoPhoenix Suns guard Ricky Rubio (hip) was able to go through shootaround on Friday. He's listed as probable for Friday's game against the New York Knicks. He limped to the locker room during Wednesday's game, but his left hip seems better now. Rubio shouldn't be limited at all, but fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off just to make sure.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Gina Mizell

3 weeks agoWashington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (leg) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Wizards want to make sure that Beal is healthy and his leg injury doesn't linger. There's a chance that he suits up on Saturday, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see. Troy Brown should start and be a reliable DFS option for Friday's slate.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Candace Buckner

3 weeks agoBoston Celtics guard Kemba Walker (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. He didn't practice on Thursday due to a 103-degree fever. Marcus Smart should jump into the starting five, while Brad Wanamaker gets extra minutes off the bench. Smart could make for an interesting DFS option, while Walker is sidelined.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris Forsberg

3 weeks agoOrlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon (Achilles) was able to participate in shootaround and has a chance to play on Friday. Gordon has been banged up with an Achilles issue, but is listed as a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Miami Heat. It's unclear whether or not he'd be limited at all. He's sounding like a risky DFS option at the moment, but more information should be known closer to tip-off.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Josh Robbins

3 weeks agoIndiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon (back) was unable to get in any work during Friday's practice. He didn't play on Thursday and isn't traveling with the team for their upcoming two game road trip. The X-rays came back clean, so hopefully Brogdon will be back in action after Monday's game. Aaron Holiday should continue to start in Brogdon's absence, while T.J. McConnell gets increased minutes off the bench. Holiday is looking like a solid streaming option when Brogdon is out after his 10 assist game on Thursday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Scott Agness

3 weeks agoDallas Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. This marks the third game in a row that Hardaway has been sidelined due to a left hamstring issue. The team isn't going to rush him back, so he could be out for a few more games. Jalen Brunson, Seth Curry, Delon Wright, and J.J. Barea will split up the extra minutes. None will have enough value to be owned in most standard leagues.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Eddie Sefko

3 weeks agoDallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. He's dealing with right knee soreness and was already expected to sit this game out. The Mavs are going to be cautious with their star center and haven't given a timetable for his return. Maximilian Kleber and Dwight Powell will have increased value while Porzingis is sidelined. Both players are making a case to be owned in standard leagues at the moment.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
