Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.
Afflalo has spent the past three games on the sidelines, but it sounds like he'll get back out there tonight. Afflalo has no fantasy value, but his return to action could cut into Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore's minutes.
Georgios Papagiannis has been sent down for another D-League stint.
Even with DeMarcus Cousins no longer in Sacramento, Papagiannis hasn't been able to establish himself in the rotation. Leave him on the wire.
Deron Williams will make his Cleveland debut on Wednesday vs. Boston.
"Deron is going to have to run the offense and get us into some of our sets and pick up things quickly, which I know he can," Cavs coach Ty Lue said. "So, just having him here just to sustain leads when we get leads and having that veteran leadership on the floor is going to be big for us." Williams will have a limited role behind Kyrie Irving, so he won't be making an impact in most fantasy leagues now that he's playing for the Cavs.
Tyler Hansbrough has been claimed by the Pacers' D-League affiliate, the Mad Ants.
Hansbrough will attempt to make an NBA comeback via the D-League route, but even if he snags a 10-day deal somewhere, his fantasy value will be non-existent.
Nerlens Noel has apologized to his teammates for being 10 minutes late to their flight to Atlanta on Tuesday.
With Wesley Matthews (hip) out for Wednesday’s matchup with the Hawks, Noel was expected to get his first start as a member of the Mavericks, but Rick Carlisle will now give Dorian Finney-Smith the start and bring Noel off the bench as punishment. "Coach has been real tough on me since I've been here, memorizing plays and the little things that will bring things to fruition that much faster," said Noel. "I've been trying to learn as fast as possible. You definitely got to be on point with everything." Carlisle did confirm that Noel will play, so feel free to get him active.
Anthony Davis implied that Jrue Holiday will take on a more active role on offense with DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.
Holiday has struggled to adjust to playing alongside both Cousins and Davis, but with Cousins (and his massive usage rate) set to watch Wednesday's game from the sidelines, Holiday will be the clear-cut No. 2 option on offense and he could have a big game against one of the worst teams in the league at defending the point guard position. Holiday is certainly on the DFS radar tonight.
Maurice Ndour (sprained right ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Magic.
It's unclear exactly when Ndour suffered this ankle injury, but he was spotted on crutches, so he could be looking at a lengthy absence. He wasn't a part of the rotation in New York anyway, so this news will have no barring in fantasy hoops.
Jimmer Fredette has reportedly been engaging with NBA teams with the hopes of signing a contract once his season in China is over.
Fredette earned MVP honors in China this season while averaging 37 points a game, so there's a chance he'll be able to find a 10-day contract somewhere once his CBA season is over. However, with career averages of just 6.0 points and not much else on 41.2 percent shooting, there's no reason to get hyped up about Fredette's potential return to the NBA.
