Roy Hibbert had issues with his flight and will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.
Hibbert isn't expected to be in the rotation most nights unless the Nuggets are playing against a team like the Pelicans. Leave him on the wire.
Alex Len is listed as the starter for Friday against the Bulls.
Well, it looks like the youth movement didn't take long for the Suns. General manager Ryan McDonough mentioned Len will be playing a lot more going forward as the team wants to get a look at Len before he becomes a restricted free agent. Plus, the GM said Tyson Chandler was "phenomenal" about his new role as being more of a coach for the young guys. If you need a big man, you might want to add Len.
Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is not likely to be in the rotation for the next few games.
Coach Mike Malone said Jamal Murray will be the backup point guard, so Mudiay is firmly in the doghouse. He has been a massive letdown this season and has been trending down since a somewhat solid December. Drop him.
Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup on Friday vs. Milwaukee and Joe Ingles will return to the bench.
Hood, who has been battling an assortment of injuries all year long, is averaging 13.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 3-pointers this season. He had missed seven straight games prior to Friday. Hood's return will limit the both Ingles and Joe Johnson's minutes.
Joe Ingles will move back to the bench on Friday against the Bucks.
With Rodney Hood (knee) back, Ingles should see his playing time drop. He's been terrific when called upon, but Ingles is a drop in most leagues.
Serge Ibaka is starting on Friday vs. the Celtics.
The Raptors are missing Kyle Lowry (wrist), so we won't know for sure how involved Ibaka will be on the offensive end until Toronto is at full strength. Make sure he's in all lineups tonight.
Cory Joseph will start for Kyle Lowry (wrist) against the Celtics on Friday night.
The Raptors will just throw their best point guard in the first unit with Delon Wright and Fred Vanvleet. Lowry had an X-ray on his wrist and will get more evaluation, so he could miss more action. Joseph is worth a look as a speculative add until Lowry gets the all clear.
Victor Oladipo (back) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.
It will be his first game out of the lineup in the 2017 portion of the season. It's a little worrisome that Oladipo is out just after the All-Star break, especially after he logged 37 minutes in his last game on Feb. 15. With him out, Alex Abrines, Doug McDermott and maybe Semaj Christon benefit.
