6 days agoAs expected, Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Golden State Warriors. Ayton was doubtful to play the final game before the All-Star Break and will get a much-needed break to rest the ailment. Cheick Diallo will start and likely play all the minutes at the five with the Suns also possibly using Mikal Bridges and Kelly Oubre Jr. in small-ball lineups.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

6 days agoLos Angeles Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley will be unable to return for his team’s first-half finale Thursday versus the Boston Celtics due to right groin soreness. Lou Williams is a likely candidate to remain among the starting five, although his offensive output has not varied much with his insertion into the starting group. Despite starting all 40 games that he has appeared in this year, Beverley remains intriguing mostly in DFS and medium or deeper season-long formats, as he finishes the first half averaging 8.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists across 28 minutes on a nightly basis. His next chance at returning comes Feb. 22 against Sacramento.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Mirjam Swanson
6 days agoUtah Jazz point guard Mike Conley will miss Wednesday’s game versus the Miami Heat due to an illness. His absence will mark his second contest in a row on the sidelines, paving the way for Jordan Clarkson to continue seeing an elevated role off the bench. Conley has returned to form over his last four outings since rejoining the starting five, but his first half finishes with an average of 13.5 points and 4.2 assists over 32 games. His next chance at returning comes Feb. 21 when he takes on San Antonio.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Utah Jazz

6 days agoSacramento Kings small/power forward Jabari Parker will be held out of Wednesday’s contest versus the Dallas Mavericks as he works his way back from shoulder surgery. Head coach Luke Walton cited the team’s desire to get Parker further acclimated before making his debut, noting that he plans on making Parker part of the mix after the All-Star break. In 32 games with Atlanta this season, Parker averaged 15 points and six rebounds per contest. He figures to join the Kings’ second unit behind Nemanja Bjelica, as owners will want to wait and see just how much playing time he is in line for before rostering him in season-long formats.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Tim MacMahon

6 days agoThe Charlotte Hornets will be without point/shooting guard Terry Rozier (knee) for Wednesday’s game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves and are unlikely to have the services of center Cody Zeller as well. Bismack Biyombo and Caleb Martin have been announced as starters in their wake, giving them a path to being rostered in DFS for those that can still slot them into lineups. Devonte' Graham is likely to take on a larger offensive role with both men out. The next chance for Rozier and Zeller to suit up comes when they open the second half Feb. 20 against Chicago.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Charlotte Hornets

6 days agoMinnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game versus the Charlotte Hornets due to a left wrist injury, ending his first half. James Johnson will serve as the team’s starting center, giving him considerable DFS upside due to his low price tag. Towns’ absence marks his first since Jan. 15, having reeled off an average of 27.8 points over his last 10 games. He will have over a week to heal up, as his next chance to take the floor comes Feb. 21 against Boston. He finishes the first half on pace to set new career highs in scoring (26.5), assists (4.4) and made triples (3.3) per contest.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Minnesota Timberwolves

6 days agoToronto Raptors power forward/center Serge Ibaka has been given the green light to play in Wednesday’s game versus the Brooklyn Nets after previously being tagged as questionable due to an illness. Ibaka missed the team’s previous outing and will reclaim his spot in the starting five with Marc Gasol (hamstring) unavailable. In 20 prior starts this year, Ibaka has averaged 18.7 points and 8.9 rebounds, shooting an excellent 57 percent overall. His role come the second half is less clear, but Wednesday should mark one last hurrah of significant upside.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Alex Schiffer

6 days agoBoston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown (calf) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He suffered a left calf contusion during Tuesday's game, so it appears Brown can't catch a break. Brown has been banged up lately, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Celtics elect to give him a day off with the All-Star break looming. Marcus Smart, Brad Wanamaker, and Romeo Langford would be asked to step up if Brown is unable to play. Fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off on Thursday for more information.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Boston Celtics

6 days agoUtah Jazz guard Mike Conley (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. Conley was expected to play on Monday, but sat out due to an illness. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Jazz decide to rest him again here with the All-Star break this close. Joe Ingles could be looking at another start, while Jordan Clarkson gets a boost in playing time and usage. Fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off for more information.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Utah Jazz

6 days agoSacramento Kings forward Jabari Parker (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. He's expected to make his team debut here, but we'll see what happens. Parker could get some decent minutes with Richaun Holmes (shoulder) and Marvin Bagley (foot) both sidelined. He could be someone worth using in deep leagues until the Kings are able to get healthy.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

6 days agoDallas Mavericks guard Delon Wright (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings. He tweaked his right ankle on Monday and was unable to return to that contest. Luka Doncic (ankle) is expected to get back out there, so Wright would see his fantasy value take a significant dip if that happens. Wright might only get minutes in the teens if Doncic is able to suit up.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

6 days agoSacramento Kings center Alex Len (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Len has been unable to make his team debut, but hopefully he'll be able to do that after the All-Star break. Richaun Holmes (shoulder) and Marvin Bagley (foot) are sidelined, so the Kings could use some help right now. Harry Giles has been asked to step up, but Len might hold some deep league value if he returns to the court before Bagley or Holmes.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

6 days agoCleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Cavs decide to rest Love in the final game before the All-Star break. Larry Nance Jr. is expected to jump into the starting five if Love is unable to play. He'd be worth a look as a decent cheap DFS option if he gets the start here. Fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off for another update on Love.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris Fedor

6 days agoDetroit Pistons guards Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (hip) and Derrick Rose (hip) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic. Mykhailiuk has missed each of the last five games due to a right hip issue. He'll likely be under a minutes limit his first game back, so Mykhailiuk won't be the best fantasy option here. Rose should be monitored as well, so fantasy owners are likely going to want to stay away from the Detroit guards. Bruce Brown Jr. and Langston Galloway should see less minutes going forward.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Vincent Ellis

6 days agoNew York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson (illness) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards. There's a bug going around in the locker room with multiple players feeling under the weather. Robinson is going to play through it here and should be worth a look after a solid performance on Sunday. This is a favorable matchup for Robinson and DFS may want to take a look at him for this one.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
