Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Wolves.
The Kings will continue to play it safe with the veteran. The Kings are tanking and Afflalo's contract for next season isn't guaranteed, so his outlook is poor going forward. Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Ben McLemore will pick up the bulk of the wing minutes.
Dennis Schroder started vs. the Celtics on Monday.
He was suspended for Friday's game vs. Miami for failure to report to the team on time after the All-Star break, and then he came off the bench on Saturday vs. the Magic for showing up late to the team bus. The Hawks lost both of those games, but Schroder's move back into the first unit could help them turn things around.
Updating a previous report, Thon Maker started over John Henson on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.
Henson was listed as the official starter, but this isn't the first time the Bucks have listed the wrong starting lineup. Maker is prone to foul trouble and isn't a great fantasy option until he gets consistent minutes above 20 -- he's averaging 16.7 minutes per game as a starter.
J.J. Barea (calf) will miss at least one more week.
This means the earliest we will see him again is on Mar. 7, but that's not a lock. Yogi Ferrell is locked into heavy minutes this week, while Quinn Cook could get a look as well after signing his 10-day contract this week.
Deron Williams has officially signed with the Cavs.
Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks, but head coach Tyronn Lue said he's hopeful to have Williams active for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Williams will just be backing up Kyrie Irving in Cleveland, and while he could have some value on the nights the Cavs' studs are rested, he'll be a non-factor in most leagues while the team is at full strength. Interestingly, Williams will wear No. 31 for Cleveland... that's 3-1. He's worn No. 8 for his entire career.
Thon Maker will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Cavs.
Maker will be replaced by John Henson in the starting lineup, and it's unclear if this is just a matchup-based decision, of if Kidd will be moving with Henson in the starting lineup moving forward. Either way, Maker was only averaging 16.7 minutes per game as a starter, so his value won't change much with the move to the bench.
Quincy Acy (ankle) participated during Monday's practice.
Acy hasn't played since Feb. 5 due to the ankle issue, but this is the first report we have on him going through practice in any capacity, so maybe he can get back on the court for Wednesday's game in Sacramento. That being said, Acy is only averaging 11 minutes per game in Brooklyn, so his playing status is irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Jeff Hornacek said that with the departure of Brandon Jennings, he may look to give more minutes to Derrick Rose and Ron Baker.
Hornacek said that Baker and Chasson Randle will battle for the backup point guard minutes, but Baker will get the first shot at picking up most of Jennings' minutes. Rose has been averaging 32.3 minutes per game this season, so maybe he'll be able to see that number closer to 36 with Jennings no longer around. Although, given Rose's well-documented injury history, Hornacek may want to keep Rose's playing time in the lower-30s.
