Victor Oladipo (back) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Pelicans.

Oladipo is currently going through his pregame routine and a decision on his status will be made once that's complete. If Oladipo is able to give it a go, Alex Abrines will head back to the bench and irrelevancy in most leagues. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 5:30 PM

The Hawks have agreed to waive Lamar Patterson as he attends to a personal situation.

He was a negligible part of the Hawks rotation, so him getting waived has no barring in fantasy hoops.
Feb 26 - 5:22 PM

Victor Oladipo (back) was spotted going through a pregame workout, but his status for Sunday's game against the Pelicans remains unclear.

Oladipo was forced to spend Friday's game on the sidelines, and only managed to get in a light practice on Saturday, so he's likely headed for a game-time call tonight. Owners will need to check back closer to tip-off for an official update, but if he's out, Alex Abrines would likely draw the start and he'd be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS after putting up 19 points and five triples his last time out. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 5:11 PM

Kyle Lowry (right wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The swelling in Lowry's wrist has gone down, and all the tests performed came back clean, so it doesn't sound like this is a very serious injury. Head coach Dwane Casey said he's considering Lowry day-to-day, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Monday's game in New York. With Lowry out tonight, Cory Joseph will draw the start and DeMar DeRozan will be working with a Russell Westbrook-like usage rate.
Feb 26 - 4:56 PM

Al-Farouq Aminu (left knee) is good to go for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Trail Blazers beat writer Mike Richman speculates that Aminu will be coming off the bench in his first game back following a two-game absence, meaning that Noah Vonleh would remain Portland's starting power forward. Still, Aminu's numbers have actually been slightly better as a reserve this season, so feel free to get him active.
Feb 26 - 4:47 PM

Wilson Chandler will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, with Kenneth Faried (back) unavailable.

Through 19 starts this season, Chandler owns averages of 16.8 points, 6.5 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.5 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.9 turnovers per game, so make sure you have him active. Jameer Nelson, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Nikola Jokic will join him in the starting five.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Bradley was able to get in some pregame work, and head coach Brad Stevens said he'd be back "any day now," so perhaps Bradley will be able to return for Monday's home game against the Hawks. With Bradley out, Jaylen Brown will get another start with Marcus Smart logging extended minutes with the second unit.
Feb 26 - 4:34 PM

Reggie Jackson (neck) will start Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Stan Van Gundy said that the team has been winning, so he's not thinking about changing his starting five at the moment. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Jon Leuer and Andre Drummond will join Jackson in the starting five.
