Latest Headlines

The NBA suspended Dwyane Wade one game for kicking Ramon Sessions in the groin on Wednesday.

The incident looked deliberate and one game seems about right for Wade. He will miss Friday's game against the Pistons and will be ready to go for Saturday against the Bucks. Shane Battier produced while Wade was out earlier this season, so he makes sense as a nice spot-start option. Mario Chalmers is coming off two big games and is also more alluring as a play on Friday.

Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) will miss at least the next four games for the Pacers.

Stuckey has suited up for just 17 of Indiana's 42 games this season, and there's no scenario out there where he would warrant a hold. Monte Ellis and C.J. Miles will continue to earn minutes in the 20s off the Pacers' bench, and Miles is worth a look for deep league GMs looking for some 3-point help.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) is currently without an official timetable to return.

The only positive here is that the MRI results came back negative, but with the way Philly tends to handle injuries, McConnell could be looking at a lengthy absence here. Sergio Rodriguez will likely move back into the starting five, and with McConnell on the sidelines, he may be able to flirt with minutes in the 30s. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues for those looking for an assist specialist. McConnell could be a tough guy to hang onto in standard leagues without an IR-spot.

Joel Embiid (rest) will return to the starting lineup on Monday, sending Jahlil Okafor back to the bench.

Embiid was rested on the second leg of a back-to-back set on Saturday, but he'll be back in action with his usual 28-minute workload for MLK day. Nerlens Noel will be serving as Embiid's backup today, so Okafor could have a tough time finding meaningful minutes. Embiid, however, is a must-start guy every time he takes the court.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas (lacerated right cheek) is probable to return.

Kent Bazemore made a kick-out pass and the follow through from his hand caught Kuzminsaks near the right eye, which opened up a cut, and he's now getting patched up in the locker room. It sounds like he'll get back out there, and we'll let you know how he finishes after the game.
Jan 16 - 2:32 PM

Moe Harkless (left calf strain) will start on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He just finished his pre-game warmups without any setbacks, so Harkless' fantasy owners can activate him in season-long lineups. Allen Crabbe will return to the bench, but his numbers are actually better in the second unit anyways.
Jan 16 - 1:25 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

Revenge game! Dwight Howard is resting, so the Hawks are going to go small with Paul Millsap at center. THJ was already trending up before this news with averages of 16.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 3.0 triples per game in January, so give him a look if those numbers mesh well with your fantasy team.

Dwight Howard is resting Monday vs. the Knicks.

Howard logged 32 minutes against the Bucks on Sunday night, so the Hawks are going to give him the day off since the Knicks don't have the most imposing frontcourt with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) out. Paul Millsap will slide over to center and is a strong DFS play, while Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup.
Jan 16 - 12:47 PM

Josh Richardson (foot) will miss at least the next two weeks of action.

We were waiting for a timetable but this is the best we are going to get. Unless you can stash Richardson in an IR spot, standard-league owners in a bad spot should probably move on. With that said, we still like Richardson's outlook for the rest of the season. Dion Waiters will get the bulk of the SG minutes in Richardson's absence and is worth a look if you need points. The Heat will also sign PF Okaro White to a 10-day deal on Monday.
Jan 16 - 12:46 PM

Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is available to play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He was considered questionable, but he said his ankle felt fine after warmups. Davis has played 21 or less minutes in three straight games, so he shouldn't be in many fantasy lineups.
Jan 16 - 12:41 PM

Otto Porter (hip) will play on Monday vs. the Blazers.

He looked fine during the morning shootaround and he previously said that he was going to play. Porter has been a top-20 stud in standard leagues and his owners will want to make sure he's active, even he's not 100 percent.
Jan 16 - 12:24 PM

Mindaugas Kuzminskas will start on Monday vs. the Hawks.

Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) is now out indefinitely and Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will miss his third game in a row, so there are a lot of minutes up for grabs in New York. Kuzminskas has played extended minutes in his previous two games with averages of 14.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal and 1.5 triples, so deep-league owners can give him a look if he plays well against the Hawks.
