1/16:Chez Reavie shot a 17-under par at the Sony Open last week to finish in a share of third place. Reavie put on a magical display of golf during his second round, holing out from 100-plus yards three times during Friday. Unfortunately, though, he was unable to get his putter going during the week, finishing 50th in strokes gained-putting. The 37-year-old will need to quickly get back into the correct mindset, as he is traveling to La Quinta, California for this week's Desert Classic. Reavie is projected to be one of the five most popular plays for the week and does possess solid course history, making his previous three cuts since 2016. However, it could be difficult for the one-time PGA Tour winner to bounce back after such a close call in Hawaii. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Dylan Frittelli is one of the more intriguing under the radar candidates this week at the Desert Classic. The 28-year-old has opened the first season that he has had full membership on the PGA Tour with three made cuts in three tournaments. Sandwiched in between his starts in America, Frittelli has provided four top-25 finishes in five European Tour events, which includes three top-12 results. The South African has historically underachieved on the PGA Tour so far during his career, but his recent form could bode well for success at La Quinta this weekend. The two-time European Tour winner presents intriguing GPP upside at only 4.2 percent projected ownership on DraftKings, and he has a high enough ceiling to justify a wager at odds of 80/1, according to the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:After a share of 57th place at the Sony Open, Adam Hadwin rolls into the Desert Classic with stellar course history in his previous three attempts. The Canadian has provided three straight top-six finishes, including a second place finish in 2017 and a share of third in 2018. Hadwin's past results here have helped install him as the fifth highest priced player on DraftKings, but he is only projected to be owned at around eight percent. Despite his storied history at the tournament, the 31-year-old does have a problematic course draw. With the Desert Classic playing on three courses for the first three days, Hadwin drew the most challenging venue on Thursday. Rain is projected in the forecast for the opening round, and that adds uncertainty to how fast of a start Hadwin will see to begin the event. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. has had the status of his sprained left thumb speculated upon for nearly the entirety of Wednesday, with the sole concrete outcome being that the big man will be held out for Thursday’s contest versus the Denver Nuggets. Some reports have said that Carter Jr. may need surgery to repair the ligament, while others have him as day-to-day for the time being. In the short-term, it appears that Bobby Portis and Cristiano Felicio will fill in, although it’s possible head coach Jim Boylen turns to Robin Lopez if he favors a more traditional center without Carter Jr. The next chance the rookie will have to suit up comes Saturday against Miami, although it’s worth checking back to see the likelihood of that taking place.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Sun-Times Basketball

1/16:Pat Perez shot a one-under par in Hawaii to miss the cut on the number. Other than a withdraw at the Dell Technologies Championship in September, Perez had made his previous eight cuts. This week, the 68th-ranked player in the world will head over to La Quinta, California for the Desert Classic. At a $7,300 price tag on DraftKings and less than five percent projected ownership, Perez does have some GPP contrarian upside, but his statistics will make him a fade for us. In his previous 50 rounds compared to the field, the 42-year-old ranks 102nd in strokes gained off the tee, 109th in strokes gained approach and 140th in opportunities gained. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Unsurprisingly, Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. will not suit up for Wednesday’s game versus the San Antonio Spurs due to an illness. Despite having been logged as questionable up until an hour before tip, Smith Jr. never really seemed in line to play as rumors continue to swirl about the team’s desire to trade the second-year point man. Owners can expect Luka Doncic to continue starting at the point guard spot, while Jalen Brunson appears set to get a hefty share of run as well. Smith Jr.’s next chance at playing for Dallas comes Saturday against Indiana.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Tim MacMahon

1/16:Toronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward C.J. Miles will miss his second consecutive contest Wednesday versus the Boston Celtics due to a hip injury. Miles has fallen largely out of Toronto’s rotation, with Norman Powell and OG Anunoby hopping him as reserves on the wing. Miles’ absence, mixed with that of Anunoby’s (personal), bodes well for Powell, who could see extended run off the bench versus Boston. Miles’ next chance to suit up comes Thursday against the Phoenix Suns.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Doug Smith

1/16:Phoenix Suns shooting guard Jamal Crawford is listed as questionable to play in Thursday’s game against the Toronto Raptors due to a sore left knee. Crawford has missed each of his team’s previous three contests due a myriad of injuries, which has led to an uptick in minutes, and likely shot attempts, for Kelly Oubre Jr. Crawford is a solid bench piece for Phoenix, and while not likely on many fantasy radars, is noteworthy when absent as it opens up additional shots for teammates. Check back for an update on his status before tip Thursday.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1/16:Denver Nuggets shooting guard Gary Harris has earned another questionable designation ahead of Thursday’s contest versus the Chicago Bulls due to left hamstring tightness. Harris has missed his team’s previous five games, but the fact that he continues to be listed as questionable gives credence to the idea that he’s nearing a return. Even when Harris is in fact able to give it a go, how minutes will be distributed between himself, Will Barton and Malik Beasley remains to be seen, making any of the trio a risky DFS play. Check back closer to tip to get an update on Harris.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Nick Kosmider

1/16:Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon will start Wednesday’s contest versus the Brooklyn Nets, but is expected to be limited to around 24 minutes. Gordon’s return couldn’t have come at a better time with the loss of Danuel House to the G League and James Ennis to injury, the Rockets remain extremely thin on the wing. Even with that in mind, it appears Houston wants to ease Gordon back into action after his eight-game absence. Gordon went for 21 points against the Nets earlier this season and figures to shoot early and often again Wednesday despite his minutes cap.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Alykhan Bijani

1/16:The rich have gotten even richer. Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins is set to join the team’s rotation for Friday’s contest versus the Los Angeles Clippers. The four-time All-Star has been making his way back from a torn Achilles, with Golden State exercising caution in his timetable to a return. Now that he is back, owners can certainly snatch him off the wire if he hasn’t been long taken, although just how quickly he returns to form remains to be seen. Expectations in his first few games are rather up in the air, making him a bit of a fantasy wild card until the Warriors can establish what they have. Expect Kevon Looney to see his role decreased going forward, which essentially eliminates him from fantasy consideration.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Alex Kennedy

1/16:Denver Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray scored 21 points on 8-for-16 shooting from the field and 4-for-7 from the three-point line in Tuesday's setback to the Warriors. The 21-year-old added three rebounds, four assists, and one block in 31 minutes. While his shooting has been up-and-down this season, he is currently shooting the ball fairly well. The third-year pro, who has scored at least 20 points in three of his last five contests, is averaging 19.6 points along with 5.2 rebounds, two trifectas, and four assists while shooting 44.2 percent from the field as well as 38.5 percent from beyond the arc during this stretch. Murray has an outstanding matchup against the Bulls (Thursday), who he compiled 12 points along with eight rebounds and six assists against in the teams first meeting.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1/16:Brooklyn Nets point/shooting guard Shabazz Napier has been given the green light to suit up Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets, having been listed as questionable since the day prior due to left hamstring tightness. Napier’s absence was a brief one-game stint, looking to keep stoking the offensive fire he has found coming primarily off the bench for Brooklyn, averaging 14.9 points per game over his last eight contests, including a 32-point outburst. He isn’t likely to usurp D'Angelo Russell or Spencer Dinwiddie anytime soon, although head coach Kenny Atkinson’s rotations could tilt in Napier’s favor on a moments notice.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Brooklyn Nets

1/16:Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware (hamstring) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Ware was limited in practice all week before sitting out in the divisional round, but he could return to face the Patriots in the AFC Championship. He has been out since Dec. 9 and would merely be backing up lead-back Damien Williams if he was active this Sunday. Ware doesn't have much DFS upside if he plays.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - James Palmer

1/16:Orlando Magic center Mohamed Bamba will be unable to return to the court for Wednesday’s contest versus the Detroit Pistons due to his persistent foot injury. Head coach Steve Clifford sounded optimistic about Bamba being back in the near future, which bodes well for his chances of playing either Friday versus Brooklyn or Saturday against Milwaukee. In the meantime, Khem Birch will likely continue to fill in, while Nikola Vucevic could snag an extra few minutes as he looks to cement his All-Star case.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: John Denton

1/16:Houston Rockets small forward James Ennis will be sidelined for Wednesday’s game versus the Brooklyn Nets due to a left calf laceration. Things are getting dire on the wing for Houston, who are without a pile of players for Wednesday’s contest. With Eric Gordon returning from injury, and Gerald Green one of the few active wing players with experience, both seem like solid DFS plays against Brooklyn. As for Ennis, his next chance to suit up comes Saturday against the Los Angeles Lakers.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Jonathan Feigen

1/16:Golden State Warriors power forward/center Draymond Green made just one of five shots from the field, including one of two attempts from beyond the arc, to finish with four points in Tuesday's victory over the Nuggets. However, the 28-year-old added 13 assists and six rebounds along with one steal in 31 minutes. His plus-41 rating was a game and season high. The seventh-year pro tied his season high in assists while marking the sixth time this year that he has reached double-digits in that category. Green, who is averaging 8.7 dimes in January, has recorded seven or more assists this month. He has an excellent matchup against the Pelicans on Wednesday, who he compiled 16 points along with 14 rebounds as well as eight assists against in the teams first meeting this year.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1/16:The Arizona Diamondbacks signed free-agent infielder Wilmer Flores to a one-year, $4.25 million deal on Wednesday, according to league sources. He will make a base salary of $3.7 million with a $500,000 buyout on a 2020 club option worth $6 million. Flores was mostly a part-time player with the Mets in 2018, hitting .267/.319/.417 with 11 home runs and 51 RBI in 386 at-bats, but he brings the D-Backs some much-needed infield versatility. He could split time at first base with Jake Lamb and at the hot corner with Eduardo Escobar, mainly starting against left-handed pitchers. He has some sneaky pop and will be in play mainly in NL-only leagues. Lack of consistent playing time has capped his fantasy upside in the past, but he could find more playing time in the desert, perhaps even at second base if Ketel Marte is moved to the outfield.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Jeff Passan
1/16:Golden State Warriors small forward Kevin Durant was terrific in the first quarter of the Dubs' victory over the Nuggets on Tuesday. The 30-year-old tallied 17 of his 27 points during the team's record-setting 51 first-quarter points as he made all seven of his shots, including each of his three-point attempts. He also dished five assists and grabbed one rebound in the opening frame. Durant finished 11-for-15 from the field and 5-for-7 from long distance to go along with four rebounds, six assists, one block, and one steal. He has now scored 20 or more points in 17 straight games. The 12th-year vet scored 24 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out eight assists the last time that the Warriors faced the Pelicans, who is their opponent on Wednesday.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1/16:The Detroit Lions hired former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell as their next offensive coordinator on Wednesday. The Lions ranked 23rd in rushing yards per game (103.8), 20th in passing yards (223.5) and 24th in points per game (19.38) in 2018. Bevell ran the offense for Seattle from 2011 to 2017 and was out of the league last year. The Seahawks averaged 131.9 yards rushing, 216 yards passing and 23.99 points per game during his time in Seattle. It looks as though the Detroit offense will remain a run-first squad under head coach Matt Patricia and Bevell, which is good news for Kerryon Johnson and bad news for quarterback Matthew Stafford.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Michael Rothstein
1/16:Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson (13 points) along with Stephen Curry (12) and Kevin Durant (17) combined for 42 of the team's record-setting 51 first-quarter points as the Dubs blew out the Nuggets Tuesday night. Thompson finished with 31 points on 13-for-19 from the field and 5-for-8 from beyond the arc. The 28-year-old added three rebounds, one assist and three steals in 25 minutes. It was his fourth 30-point game in the last eight outings. He is currently shooting the ball the best that he has this season, making 55.4 percent of his shots overall and 46.7 percent of his three-point attempts this month while averaging 27.7 points a game along with 4.7 triples. Thompson and the Warriors face the Pelicans on Wednesday. The eighth-year pro tallied 18 points, four assists and four rebounds in the first meeting this season against New Orleans.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1/16:Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is having a fabulous January. Curry poured in 31 points on 10-for-18 shooting from the field and 8-for-13 from the three-point line in Tuesday's victory over the Nuggets. The 30-year-old also grabbed six rebounds, dished out four assists and committed three turnovers in 31 minutes. He scored 17 of his points in the third quarter as knocked down six of nine shots, including four of five from long distance. The 10th-year pro has now produced a minimum of 25 points, four assists and five rebounds in eight of his last nine outings. Curry, who is making seven trifectas at 46.7 percent clip in January, has made more three-pointers (24) than missed (19) over the last three games. The Davidson product and the Warriors face the Pelicans on Thursday, who he exploded for 37 points as he drained seven three-pointers and doled out nine dimes in the teams first meeting.--Daniel Benjamin - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1/16:Harold Varner III is in the field for this week's Desert Classic. It will be his first start of 2019. Varner had the best season of his career in 2018. He logged three top-10 finishes and won over $1 million in prize money. The 28-year-old continued his excellent play during the swing season by recording three top-25's and a top-10 finish in just five fall starts. Varner has historically struggled at the Desert Classic, missing the cut in all three of his previous starts in the event. La Quinta might not be a great fit for Varner, but he is a player worth keeping an eye on in 2019. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Russell Henley is slated to tee it up in this week's Desert Classic. Henley was underwhelming in his first start of 2019, finishing tied for 66th in last week's Sony Open. The 2018 season was a disappointing one for Henley and his game still looked out of sorts in Hawaii. Things might not improve this week, as the former Georgia Bulldog has struggled in his previous two starts in the Desert Classic. Henley missed the cut at La Quinta in 2017 and could only manage a T49 in 2016. His current form and poor course history take him out of DFS consideration this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Brendan Steele is participating in this week's Desert Classic. It will be his first start of 2019. Steele suffered through a brutal 2018 that included a stretch of 12 consecutive starts without a top-45 finish. Things weren't much better for him in the fall, as he missed the cut in his last start at the Shriners Open. Steele does have a record of success in the Desert Classic. He has made four straight cuts at La Quinta, with a T6 in 2017 and a T2 in 2015. Steele's course history makes him a tempting DFS play this week, but consider him a risky option until his game shows some improvement. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1/16:Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lillard is dealing with a right hand strain and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Blazers play it safe here. Nik Stauskas, Seth Curry, and Wade Baldwin would see more minutes if Lillard is forced to sit out. C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic would do the heavy lifting on the offense. Fantasy owners should check back closer to game time.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Casey Holdahl

1/16:San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay (hand) and guard/forward Marco Belinelli (knee) will play in Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Both players reportedly looked fine at shootaround and will suit up for this contest. Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter and Davis Bertans will all lose minutes from these two returning. Gay is not expected to have a minutes limit, so he should be safe to use in fantasy leagues on Wednesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tom Orsborn

He's been dealing with a sore left hamstring, but had four days to rest up. Damyean Dotson would draw another start if Hardaway is unable to play. Kevin Knox and Emmanuel Mudiay would be asked to do more on offense. Knox is a solid DFS option without Hardaway in the rotation.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
