Latest Headlines

Kyrie Irving (hand) is 100 percent healthy.

Irving played five-on-five a week ago and is ready to go with training camp set to begin this week. It's not a surprise to learn that the point guard is in perfect health as he was always expected to be ready for training camp, but it's welcomed news for owners who have already invested a high draft pick in him. He's going to be off the board by Round 2 at the very latest, and is even going in the first round in many formats.

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Jan 18 - 6:28 PM

Jon Leuer (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

The Pistons will hold him out for his fifth game. With Leuer and Kentavious-Caldwell Pope (shoulder) out, the Pistons will have to play Reggie Bullock, Stanley Johnson and Aron Baynes more than usual. Tobias Harris and Marcus Morris also slightly benefit.
Jan 18 - 6:25 PM

Montrezl Harrell will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, sending Clint Capela to the bench.

Capela is being eased back into things after a lengthy layoff, so it doesn't make sense to have him start if he's only going to play around 10 minutes or so. Harrell will likely split minutes at the five-spot with Capela and Nene, so he's not a very attractive option in most formats despite the starter tag.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

His knee injury has kept him to just two games in 2017. Luckily for the Raptors, they have Jared Sullinger (foot) back for limited minutes -- he's likely only going to play 10-15 minutes tonight. The Raptors will also likely go smaller tonight while Pascal Siakam could play 20 minutes. None of these guys mentioned are worth using in standard leagues.

Jared Sullinger (foot) will make his season debut and play limited minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Wow. This comes as a surprise after Sullinger was cleared for practice on Jan. 13. He's coming off a foot surgery and chances are his conditioning isn't 100 percent yet. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for the foreseeable future, so he's only worth a pickup in deeper leagues right now. His upside isn't the greatest.
Jan 18 - 6:09 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics.

He has a sore left ankle and didn't go through shootaround. Noah has been surprisingly healthy lately, but he could miss additional time going forward given his track record. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn should get a bump in minutes and the same goes for Willy Hernangomez. If you need a big man, KOQ is worth a pickup.
Jan 18 - 6:03 PM

Joel Embiid (illness) will start Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Embiid could be limited tonight due to the illness, but he remains a must-start guy any time he takes the court. With him active, Nerlens Noel (ankle) and Jahlil Okafor (ankle) will split the reserve minutes, with Noel offering a bit more appeal due to his defensive upside.
Jan 18 - 5:21 PM

Nerlens Noel (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Joel Embiid (illness) is still questionable to play. Noel should be looking at minutes in the low 20s regardless of Embiid's status. Jahlil Okafor could be getting minutes in the upper 20s or he could be a DNP-CD. Noel is worth owning in standard leagues right now.
Jan 18 - 5:18 PM

T.J. McConnell (wrist) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He went through shootaround this morning and wasn't wearing a wrist splint. McConnell went through his pre-game routine and apparently didn't have a setback. He did play through his wrist injury when he suffered it on Saturday, but he was held out on Monday. He should play close to 30 minutes while Sergio Rodriguez backs him up.
Jan 18 - 5:10 PM

Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) and Danilo Gallinari (right ankle sprain) are probable to play Thursday vs. the Spurs.

When they're listed as probable in Denver, that means that they'll get out there, so owners can feel confident plugging these guys in their lineups on Thursday. Jokic has been putting up top-3 numbers in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, so he's obviously a must-start guy every time he's active.
Jan 18 - 5:04 PM

Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

He had some blurred vision on Tuesday and is still in the concussion protocol. Nogueira's fantasy owners should probably just sit tight and hope he can return this weekend. With him out, Paskal Siakam is likely to start, but fantasy owners should steer clear. The Raptors could also go small to give more run to Norman Powell and Terrence Ross.
