Chris Paul (knee) will miss Saturday's game against the Blazers.

He doesn't have a timetable to return from his bruised right kneecap and the Clippers are in no hurry to bring him back. Paul was sporting an ice pack on his knee in shootaround and there's a good chance he misses Sunday's rematch against the Blazers. Eric Bledsoe will start and is a strong option in all leagues.

Dennis Schroder's 25 points weren't enough in Friday's 109-91 loss to the Hornets.

He kept his foot on the gas after a 28-point opener, hitting 11-of-21 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 32 minutes. The Hawks may not be very good this season, but Schroder has no real competition for minutes and should easily have a career year. He couldn't ask for a better matchup on Sunday vs. Brooklyn.

Luol Deng is inactive for Friday's game vs. the Suns.

He's not injured, but he's either being rested or is completely out of the rotation after playing 13 minutes vs. the Clippers in the opener. The Lakers probably want that contract back.

Corey Brewer will start against the Suns on Friday, moving Luol Deng to the bench.

Luke Walton said a change was coming, but this isn't one that fantasy owners will be excited about. Both Brewer and Deng will be irrelevant when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returns from his suspension.
Oct 20 - 9:16 PM

Josh Hart (Achilles) is active for Friday against the Suns.

He missed some time due to bursitis in his Achilles, so he may not get much run tonight despite poor perimeter play from the Lakers on Friday.
Oct 20 - 8:53 PM

Elfrid Payton strained his left hamstring on Friday vs. the Nets and won't return for the second half.

The injuries have been out of control during the opening week and Payton is the latest victim. There's no word on the severity, but hamstring injuries can linger without plenty of rest. The Magic play the Cavs on Saturday, so Payton should be considered questionable for now. D.J. Augustin is worth a speculative pickup and will likely be the starter if Payton misses additional time, while Shelvin Mack will back up Augustin. Payton finished this one with four points, four assists and one steal in 15 minutes.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said he will make a change to his starting lineup on Friday vs. the Suns.

He wouldn't say what the changes would be, so we'll have to wait until tip-off. If we had to guess, Luol Deng would be an obvious candidate to move to the second unit after playing 13 quiet minutes in the opener.
Oct 20 - 8:38 PM

J.J. Barea, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Dirk Nowitzki and Nerlens Noel will start against the Kings on Friday.

With Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) out, the Mavs had to shift Yogi Ferrell to a straight point guard for tonight. Barea was also strictly the backup to DSJ, so he should be fine in this role and could get 24-28 minutes. He has short-term value.
Oct 20 - 8:21 PM

Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Josh Jackson and Tyson Chandler will start against the Lakers on Friday.

Bledsoe was listed as questionable for today, but he quote tweeted that report 30 minutes ago with a "Ha!", so apparently he's good to go. We'll see what quirky stuff coach Earl Watson has for us today, but start Bledsoe in all leagues.
Oct 20 - 8:01 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. (left knee effusion) will miss Friday's game vs. the Kings and Saturday's game vs. Houston.

He wasn't on the injury report, so this comes as a complete surprise -- he reportedly experienced the swelling after shootaround. Smith Jr. had a torn left ACL during his senior season in high school, so it's a little worrying that he has some swelling. There's no word on the severity, but hopefully we'll have some clarity after the game. Expect Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea to log heavy minutes Friday in a great matchup.
Oct 20 - 7:33 PM

Zach Randolph (oral surgery) will play on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

He's also expected to start next to Willie Cauley-Stein which will push Skal Labissiere to the bench. Z-Bo will be a nice source of points and rebounds, but his upside is limited in his age-36 season. Labissiere will likely be the PF to own in Sacramento this season, especially later on.
Oct 20 - 7:05 PM

Allen Crabbe will start against the Magic on Friday.

After getting some minute limits on Wednesday, he should be all set. Crabbe was in the lone lineup for the final five minutes after the Jeremy Lin (knee) injury, so he should be asked to play big minutes in the first unit. This offense is almost perfect for him, so he should be owned in standard leagues. He's a DFS play, too.
