Latest Headlines

The Sixers re-signed C Tony Battie on Monday.

Marreese Speights is likely done in Philly, while Battie should be nothing more than a backup.

Pau Gasol is back in the starting lineup alongside LaMarcus Aldridge (knee).

Feb 23 - 7:40 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Not much of a surprise here with Gallinari suffering the hand injury on Thursday night. It's certainly possible he misses more games because he's not the fastest healer. With him out, it'll be Tyrone Wallace, Austin Rivers and Wes Johnson stepping up at the small forward spot. We could see some more Montrezl Harrell, too.
Feb 23 - 7:38 PM

Tyson Chandler (neck spasms) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

Chandler is visiting a specialist but we haven't heard any results yet. Either way, we probably won't see much of him the rest of the season with the Suns embracing the tank. Expect to see a lot of Alex Len tonight and maybe some center minutes for Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss.
Feb 23 - 7:18 PM

John Collins will start against the Pacers on Friday.

Giddy up. He is expected to join Dennis Schroder, Taurean Prince, Kent Bazemore and Dewayne Dedmon in the first unit. Collins should be looking for more minutes and he could get to 30 per game more often, assuming he stays out of foul trouble. Collins needs to be owned everywhere in fantasy.
Feb 23 - 6:37 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) is not at the arena yet and could miss Friday's game against the Wolves.

It sounds like he's not going to play, but of course that could change shortly. If he's out, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute could help out with Trevor Ariza also back in the lineup.
Feb 23 - 6:24 PM

John Henson (hamstring) is starting against the Raptors on Friday.

His hamstring issue has been a problem for most of this month, but Henson has been expected to play all day. He will likely have a soft minutes cap in his return to action and it will be tough for him to keep his minutes high with Tyler Zeller playing well behind him.
Feb 23 - 6:20 PM

Ersan Ilyasova will not play on Friday night against the Pacers.

He is expected to be bought out in the near future, which means the Hawks should focus even more on their youth. This should pave the way for John Collins to see minutes around 30 per game while the other forwards should see a slight bump in minutes. Ilyasova is a drop candidate in most leagues.
Feb 23 - 5:45 PM

Jordan Bell (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday against the Thunder.

He did say he'll "probably" be ready for the road tip that starts on Monday at Madison Square Garden. The Warriors moving Zaza Pachulia out of the starting lineup is good news for Bell, and coach Steve Kerr said that Bell should be in the rotation upon his return. Considering his upside, it's not a bad idea to stash him in deeper leagues, assuming you can wait about a week before he's close to 100 percent.
Feb 23 - 3:52 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) is questionable to face the Suns on Friday.

He suffered a hand injury last night and the training staff got a look at him, but X-rays were negative. It's being called a right hand contusion, so there's a chance this injury could interfere with the right-handed forward's shot. If he's out, that means we'll see a lot of small-ball lineups with more Austin Rivers, Tyrone Wallace and Wes Johnson.
Feb 23 - 2:36 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) has been ruled out against the Suns on Friday.

He is not expected to play and the team is concerned about his status going forward. There's a very good chance Bradley gets shut down for several games and his fantasy owners should have moved on by now. There will be more run for Milos Teodosic and Tyrone Wallace.
Feb 23 - 2:34 PM

Lonzo Ball (knee) will play with a minutes limit in his return to the lineup against the Mavs on Friday, and he will not play on Saturday for rest.

Coach Luke Walton said he's still not sure if Ball is going to start, but the Lakers have been vocal about him being their starting point guard. He's been out for 41 days with this MCL sprain and it could be a while before he's back up to minutes in the upper 30s. His return should take time from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Josh Hart, Corey Brewer, and maybe some of the forwards with the Lakers going smaller at the three.
