1 week agoLos Angeles Clippers guard Paul George had a cold shooting night in Tuesday's 110-103 loss to the 76ers, going 3-for-15 from the field and 1-for-4 from downtown to finish with 11 points. The veteran also had 12 rebounds, five assists and one block. Nights like these are bound to happen, even for an elite player like George, but the hope for owners is to have his shooting woes fixed quickly. The last time the 29-year-old had a cold shooting night was against the Kings on Jan. 30, but he successfully rebounded to score over 19 points the following five games until Tuesday's setback. George and the Clippers play a tough defensive team in the Celtics up next on Thursday.--Rishi Patel - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoChicago Bulls point guard Coby White cobbled together 14 points in a loss to the Wizards to go with seven assists, five rebounds, four steals and two three-point makes. White struggled with his shot, converting only four of his 14 field-goal attempts, but he took care of the basketball to the tune of just one turnover in over 34 minutes. Losers of six straight and 4.5 games back of the eighth seed, Chicago's playoff hopes grow dimmer by the day. As they fall further away from the postseason picture, expect the Bulls to give more run to their rookie floor general to speed up his learning curve, if only by a bit.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource:

1 week agoChicago Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky finished a loss to the Wizards with 19 points on seven of 12 shooting with eight assists and two three-pointers. Satoransky has been a bit all over the place in recent weeks, fluctuating between stretches of single- and double-digit scoring outings, but this was his second consecutive game in double figures and his highest scoring total in seven games. More than his inconsistency, as the Bulls continue to fall further down the standings with six straight losses, Satoransky has to be slightly concerned with the possibility of rookie Coby White taking some of his minutes as Chicago attempts to assess pieces for its future.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource:

1 week agoLos Angeles Clippers guard Landry Shamet finished with 19 points, one rebound and zero assists through 36 minutes in the 110-103 loss to the 76ers on Tuesday. The second-year player was efficient off the bench, going 7-for-11 from the field and 5-for-9 from downtown. However, the 22-year-old is too risky to trust on a daily basis, considering his limited role and the chances to have low scoring nights. Shamet will face a tough matchup in the Celtics on Thursday.--Rishi Patel - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoChicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine had his shot working for him versus the Wizards, dropping 41 points on 15 of 21 shooting to go with nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in a defeat. LaVine also shot eight of 11 from beyond the arc one game after draining five triples on his way to 32 points. The Bulls are in the midst of a rough patch with six consecutive losses, but LaVine is doing his best to keep them competitive. He won't be part of the All-Star game in Chicago, but his spot in the three-point contest is well earned -- he's shooting over 37.0 percent from three -- and his overall production ranks among the best in the league.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource:

1 week agoMilwaukee Bucks shooting guard/small forward Kyle Korver has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game versus the Indiana Pacers due to back soreness. Korver joins Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) and George Hill (hamstring) on the inactive list, with Donte Divincenzo and Pat Connaughton likely to take on a larger role with the second unit with Korver out of the mix. Aside from those owners desperate for made three-pointers in category leagues, Korver offers little season-long intrigue. His next chance at taking the floor comes Feb. 20 against Detroit, with ample time to heal up before his next outing.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoNew Orleans Pelicans small/power forward Brandon Ingram has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game versus the Portland Trail Blazers due to an ankle sprain. Josh Hart will enter the starting five in his place and see increased DFS attention, along with many of his teammates, who are likely to absorb Ingram’s 18 shot attempts per game. Ingram has seen his offensive role slightly dialed back since the arrival of Zion Williamson, but he remains the team’s leading scorer and No. 1 scoring threat. Ingram's next chance at getting back into action comes Thursday against Oklahoma City.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Will Guillory

1 week agoUtah Jazz point guard Mike Conley is dealing with an illness that has forced the team to tag him as questionable for Wednesday’s contest against the Miami Heat. Conley has reentered the starting five over the past four games and looked much like his old self, averaging 20.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists per contest in that span. Should he be held out, Donovan Mitchell would likely see a larger share of the ball-handling duties. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on Conley’s status.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Utah Jazz

1 week agoSacramento Kings small/power forward Jabari Parker is nearing a debut with his new squad, although it’s unclear if that will come Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks as he recovers from shoulder surgery that has kept him sidelined since Jan. 3. Parker is currently questionable for the contest, but his return would be a boon for a frontcourt that has scuffled through injuries. It remains to be seen how hefty of a workload Parker will see upon being cleared, which limits his fantasy value for the time being, even as he is a name to keep an eye on during the second half of the year.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoPhoenix Suns small/power forward Dario Saric has been ruled out well in advance of Wednesday’s contest versus the Golden State Warriors due to an ankle sprain. Saric’s absence will mark his seventh in a row, as Cameron Johnson and Mikal Bridges are likely to continue seeing an increased workload with him sidelined. Saric had seen his role fluctuate prior to getting injured, which leaves his status in the rotation up in the air when the team kicks off the second half Feb. 21, which is the next contest for which he will be eligible to return.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Gina Mizell

1 week agoGolden State Warriors center Kevon Looney is deemed questionable to play in Wednesday’s game versus the Phoenix Suns due to a sore left hip. Looney has come off the bench in each of Golden State’s last five games, but has provided very little by way of fantasy contributions, averaging just 2.9 points and 3.1 rebounds on a nightly basis this season. His absence would likely allow Marquese Chriss to snag some additional minutes in the frontcourt, as owners will want to check back and see if Looney is given the green light to take the floor.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoThe New York Knicks are expected to have both center Mitchell Robinson and small/power forward Maurice Harkless at their disposal for Wednesday’s contest versus the Washington Wizards after both were initially deemed questionable for the contest. Both Robinson and Harkless have been upgraded to probable, with the latter in line to make his Knicks debut after being acquired in the Marcus Morris deal with the Clippers at the Trade Deadline. Robinson swatted a season-high six blocks against the Wizards back on Dec. 23, in addition to having played 35 minutes in his most recent outing. While he may still be coming off the bench for the time being, Robinson has considerable DFS appeal as Washington remains short-handed in the frontcourt.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

Matchup Rating:   PREMIUM   $3,800
1 week agoSan Antonio Spurs shooting guard/small forward DeMar DeRozan has officially been deemed unavailable to play in Tuesday’s contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to back spasms. The absence marks both his second in a row and second all season, as Lonnie Walker IV should again be in line to enter the starting five in DeRozan’s absence. Expect the Spurs to spread DeRozan’s shot attempts around, incrementally upping the fantasy value of numerous players. His next chance at returning to action comes Feb. 21 against Utah, getting the next 10 days to recover in hopes of closing out the season strong.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Joe Mussatto

1 week agoPhoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton has been listed as questionable to return for Wednesday’s game versus the Golden State Warriors due to a sore left ankle. Ayton was absent from Monday’s contest, which paved the way for Cheick Diallo to see an enormous 39-minute workload in the frontcourt. Ayton had been particularly rolling over his previous five games prior to the injury, having averaged 22.2 points, 13.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 blocks in that span. With Golden State still adjusting its frontcourt rotations in the wake of the Trade Deadline, owners will want to check back prior to tip-off to get word on Ayton’s status.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Gina Mizell

1 week agoDetroit Pistons shooting guard/small forward Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk is tagged as probable to suit up for Wednesday’s contest versus the Orlando Magic following a five-game absence due to a strained right hip. Mykhailiuk’s return would likely cut into the minutes of Langston Galloway and Bruce Brown, as the sharpshooter had scored in double figures in 11 of his last 12 contests prior to being injured. He shot 41.6 percent from long range in that span and figures to reprise his role as the team’s primary long range threat, having delivering a breakout first half that has seen him knock down an average of two triples on a nightly basis.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
