Derrick Favors suffered a strained arch in his right foot on Friday and will not return.

Favors is questionable to play on Saturday with the injury. The Jazz will likely evaluate him on Saturday and his owners should hang tight until more news comes along. Paul Millsap will have to play a little more while Gordon Hayward could pick up more minutes at small forward. Enes Kanter could also have a slightly larger role in the rotation.

Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) is "available" for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

DFS owners should tread carefully, as Lamb hasn't played more than 24 minutes since Nicolas Batum returned. Coach Steve Clifford said he's worried about Lamb making his injury worse, so the Hornets will keep a close eye on him all night.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot) is a go for Monday's game against the Clippers.

Hardaway Jr. has acknowledged that his foot has felt "worse and worse" while playing through the pain, so while he'll gut it out tonight, he may be somewhat limited. Head coach Jeff Hornacek even acknowledged that it sounds like he could be dealing with plantar fasciitis, in which the only remedy tends to be prolonged rest, but he'll allow THJ to fight through the pain. Season-long owners can feel free to get him active, but the foot issue makes him a risky DFS target.

Amir Johnson will likely draw the start on Monday vs. Utah if Joel Embiid (sore knee) is unable to give it a go.

Even as a starter, Johnson likely wouldn't earn much more than 15 minutes, so he's still not a great target should he move into the starting five tonight. Richaun Holmes, however, would very likely earn minutes in the mid-20s, if not more, if Embiid is out, which would make him a popular target in daily leagues.

Hornets' head coach Steve Clifford said he thinks Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) will be able to play Monday vs. the Timberwolves.

Lamb was a full participant in shootaround and it sounds like he was fine while going through his pregame routine, so he should be out there tonight. However, with Nicolas Batum back in action, Lamb's value is quickly trending in the wrong direction, so he's not the best target on a busy 11-game Monday night.

Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) remains a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Jazz.

Embiid wants to get out there, but the decision will ultimately be up to the 76ers' medical staff, and they've been known to err on the side of caution with their franchise players. We likely won't get another update until just prior to tip-off, but if Embiid is forced to the sidelines tonight, Richaun Holmes would see a nice uptick in minutes and there would be more shots to go around for basically everyone. Stay tuned.

Richaun Holmes (illness) will play Monday vs. the Jazz.

Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) remains a game-time call, and if he's not able to give it a go, Holmes would likely be flirting with minutes in the mid-20s, making him a truly inticing DFS play. Jahlil Okafor could also get into the rotation sans Embiid, and Amir Johnson would draw the start, but Holmes is the guy you want to target in fantasy hoops.
Nov 20 - 5:27 PM

X-rays taken on Paul Millsap's left wrist came back negative, but he will not play Monday vs. Sacramento.

It's nice to know that Millsap didn't break anything, but depending on the severity of the sprain, he could be looking at more than just a one-game absence here. Kenneth Faried or Will Barton could move into the starting five tonight with Millsap out, and there will be more opportunity on offense for guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.

Trevor Booker said his sprained left ankle is "not too bad," but he was non-committal regarding his status for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.

Booker said he initially suffered the ankle injury last Friday vs. Utah, and then aggravated the injury shortly into Sunday's game against the Warriors, which forced him to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at practices leading up to Wednesday's tip, but if he is unable to give it a go, Quincy Acy, Jarrett Allen and Tyler Zeller would see an uptick in minutes.
Nov 20 - 3:28 PM

Tyson Chandler (illness) was a full participant during Monday's practice and said he expects to play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee.

Chandler has spent five of the past seven games on the sidelines with an illness and back issues, but it sounds like he'll be back in the rotation on Wednesday night, which isn't great news for the likes of Alex Len, Marquese Chriss and Greg Monroe. Head coach Jay Triano said he's not sure how he'll handle the minutes with three centers available, but this could very easily turn into a value-killing timeshare situation.
Nov 20 - 2:58 PM

Buddy Hield (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Nuggets.

This will be Hield's second straight game on the sidelines, and considering how bad the ankle injury looked when it occurred, we're going to have to consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Lakers until we hear otherwise. Bogdan Bogdanovic should be able to get closer to the 30-minute mark sans Hield, and De'Aaron Fox could spend some more time alongside George Hill in some two-PG lineups. Hield isn't necessarily worth hanging onto in leagues without an IR-spot.
Nov 20 - 2:19 PM

Wilson Chandler (sore back) is questionable to play Monday against the Kings.

Chandler has been logging a lot of minutes as of late, and it looks like his back flared up on him, so he could be a true game-time call tonight. If he's out, Will Barton could move into the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Juan Hernangomez in the second unit. Stay tuned.
