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.
He is likely to clear waivers and could get some interest as a stretch four. Scott being hurt this season hurt his chances to get run, especially with Paul Millsap healthy for most of the season.
Suns waive F/C Jared Sullinger.
He was sent to the Suns just to make the money work on a P.J. Tucker deal. Sullinger has not looked very good due to a foot injury keeping him out, but someone will likely give him a 10-day deal.
Dwyane Wade (wrist) will start against the Suns on Friday.
He's good to go after a bruised right wrist cost him some time at the end of the first half of the season. Wade is starting to trend down after a solid start, but he's still worth using when he's active. Plus, he gets a great matchup.
Michael Carter-Williams, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez will start against the Suns.
MCW should see some decent minutes with the Bulls thin on the wing to go with his starting role. He's still a risky fantasy play with Wade and Butler in the lineup.
Coach Brad Stevens said Gerald Green (heel) will miss Friday's game vs. the Raptors and Sunday's game in Detroit.
There is not a significant fantasy impact as a result of this news, as Green is averaging under 12 minutes a night this season. Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart will likely see some additional run.
