Latest Headlines

Kobe Bryant, who missed shootaround on Tuesday with the flu, will play against the Pacers tonight.

It's going to take a little more than an illness to keep Kobe in street clothes these days, so make sure he's in your lineup.

Luol Deng (wrist) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers.

Brandon Ingram will start in his place once again. The Lakers initially said Deng was out indefinitely a few days back, but he was a game-time call tonight which suggests he's probably day-to-day. Regardless, he belongs on the wire in most leagues anyways. Ingram is looking at a heavy workload and is trending up as a nice stash in standard leagues.

Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

He started the game which was a surprise, but clearly didn't look right and finished scoreless in nine minutes. Anderson should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Corey Brewer started the second half in his place, but there should be more minutes available for Sam Dekker as well.
Jan 20 - 9:28 PM

Joel Embiid (left knee) has been ruled out for the rest of Friday's game as a precaution.

After a fourth trip to the locker room and being ruled out, Embiid came back to the bench and was crestfallen he could not return. He was doing some cutting in the hallway to the locker room to likely try to show he was able to play. In other words, the 76ers just didn't want their franchise player to go out there. He had to battle in this game and probably went to the floor about 10 times with multiple times limping throughout the game. The worst blow for Embiid was a knee contusion in the third quarter and he even tweaked it again later. For now, we don't think it's serious, but there's very little chance he plays on Saturday.

Luol Deng (wrist) is a game-time call to face the Pacers on Friday.

He will test out his shooting wrist and the team will go from there. If he sits, Brandon Ingram would get the start again. We'll pass along the decision on Deng in hopefully about an hour.

Joel Embiid jogged back to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday.

His knee hyperextended after he slipped on the floor and he was limping for about 15 seconds. Embiid gathered himself and went back to the locker room with two trainers. It's likely a checkup and hopefully he's OK.
Jan 20 - 8:37 PM

Garrett Temple is starting vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is out for the season and Temple and Matt Barnes will likely see the biggest bump in minutes. Temple doesn't have great upside, but he did put up averages of 11.4 points, 3.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 2.1 treys in seven previous starts this season. Give him a look if has a strong game tonight.
Jan 20 - 7:58 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Kings on Friday night.

He has not looked right at all and the Grizzlies are on a home-home back-to-back, so this isn't surprising. James Ennis is likely to get the start while the Grizzlies give a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels and Tony Allen. Parsons may be the most annoying player to own, so feel free to cut him.
Jan 20 - 7:33 PM

Noah Vonleh started over Al-Farouq Aminu on Friday against the 76ers.

Well, coach Terry Stotts is at it again. The Blazers are on a back-to-back set, so that might be a factor. There's no fantasy move to be made with this late switch and it won't stick.
Jan 20 - 7:12 PM

Evan Turner is starting in place of Moe Harkless on Friday vs. the 76ers.

Talk about a late lineup switch. The Blazers announced a starting lineup change five minutes before tip-off. Harkless hasn't been 100 percent lately and the Blazers play again on Saturday vs. Boston, so maybe the idea here is to monitor his minutes tonight. Harkless' owners shouldn't panic, but it wouldn't be a complete shock if he got the night off completely.
Jan 20 - 7:10 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) said he will play against Memphis on Friday night.

He went through warmups and apparently everything went well. The Kings were ditching their two-PG lineups earlier this month, but it may be back out of necessity due to the Rudy Gay (Achilles) injury. Garrett Temple is still worth a look in standard leagues even though he'll play more two and three.
Jan 20 - 6:57 PM

Sean Kilpatrick and Trevor Booker will rest against the Pelicans on Friday.

It's the front end of a back-to-back set and Kilpatrick will get his first rest day. For tonight, there will be more minutes going to Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, Bojan Bogdanovic and Rondae-Hollis Jefferson. Kilpatrick has lost a lot of his luster and isn't worth owning in standard leagues. By the way, expect rest coming for other Nets on Saturday.
