Latest Headlines

Kirk Hinrich (left elbow) did not start the second half for the Bulls and did not return to the game.

Nate Robinson assumed PG duties and would be a very nice spot-starter if Hinrich is forced to miss any games.

Pau Gasol (wrist) and Manu Ginobili (thigh) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Gasol's wrist has been bothering him over the past few games, so he'll miss the first game of San Antonio's back-to-back set, and we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Memphis. With Gasol unavailable, it'll likely be either Davis Bertans or Joffrey Lauvergne entering the starting lineup with LaMarcus Aldridge being forced into heavy minutes. Ginobili's absence will translate to more run for Brandon Paul and Bryn Forbes.

Vince Carter will be in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Hornets, sending Justin Jackson back to the bench.

In Carter's previous start this season, he posted four points, two assists, one rebound, one steal, three blocks and one turnover in 25 minutes, but we wouldn't expect him to replicate the production in the defensive categories tonight. Jackson's minutes will take a hit with the demotion to the second unit, so he can't be trusted in fantasy hoops.

Trevor Ariza will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Miami.

Ariza has served his two-game suspension and with him back in the starting five, Luc Mbah a Moute figures to head back to the second unit where he'll battle for the reserve minutes with P.J. Tucker. Feel free to get Ariza active for a favorable matchup with the Heat.

Greg Monroe will replace Tyson Chandler in the starting unit for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Revenge game!? Jay Triano said he's making the move because Monroe has "been a good soldier" while collecting DNP-CDs, and he wants to reward him with a start against his former team. He also said that Chandler has been a bit "fatigued," so it wouldn't be surprising to see Tyson rested on Monday. Monroe has played well when given the minutes, so he'll make for an enticing DFS target tonight under the revenge game narrative.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right axillary abscess) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Kings and Treveon Graham will start in his place.

MKG was originally being listed as probable with a foot sprain, but the axillary (armpit) issue is new, and it's currently unclear if he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. While Graham figures to see some extended run as a starter, Jeremy Lamb still makes for the better target as he could be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight. Head coach Steve Clifford also hinted that Malik Monk could see some more floor time tonight, but it's tough to see him earning playing time in the 20s with the rest of the wings in Charlotte healthy.

The Bucks have fired head coach Jason Kidd, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Bucks assistant coach Joe Prunty will fill in as the interim head coach while Milwaukee looks for Kidd's long-term replacement, and it'll be interesting to see if he alters the rotations. Milwaukee management reportedly decided to make the move after the Bucks fell to the No. 8 seed out East, and there had been discontent brewing between both parties for a couple years now. Kidd's constantly changing rotations were a nightmare, so perhaps his departure will bring some stability.

Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Memphis.

This will be Bayless' second straight game on the sidelines, and with both him and J.J. Redick (leg) unavailable, Timothe Luwawu should be looking at another start with T.J. McConnell flirting with minutes in the 30s, and both those guys are on the radar as deep league streamers. After Monday's game the 76ers will take on the Bulls on Wednesday, and for now, we'll consider Bayless questionable for that one.
Jan 22 - 2:22 PM

John Wall (illness) is expected to play vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

Wall missed the morning shootaround, but it sounds like the Wizards were just playing it safe. He's a little risky in DFS, but his season-long owners can deploy him in their lineups. We'll have an update after warmups.
Jan 22 - 1:33 PM

Marquese Chriss had a second MRI on his hip which showed that the injury is improving.

While this is good news, Chriss still doesn't have a timetable to return and his status for this week is up in the air. Dragan Bender will have a heavy workload while Chriss is out, but he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option.
Jan 22 - 1:30 PM

Goran Dragic (knee) and Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not play in Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

Dragic has a bruised right knee and will miss his second straight game. This is likely a pain tolerance issue, so we'll continue to list him as day-to-day. With both Dragic and Johnson out, Josh Richardson and James Johnson will handle the ball a ton, while Wayne Ellington will get a nice bump and is coming off a 26-point game. All three are excellent fantasy options.
Jan 22 - 1:04 PM

Jimmy Butler (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

We still don't have many details, and the Wolves are simply calling the issue a sore right knee. With Butler out for a second straight game, the Wolves may turn to Nemanja Bjelica again -- he started in Butler's place vs. the Raptors and had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and one triple in 26 minutes. Andrew Wiggins dropped 29 points on 21 shots in his last game, so look for him to step up again. Looking ahead, the Wolves play again on Wednesday vs. the Blazers and Thursday vs. the Warriors.
