Rodney Stuckey is inactive for Sunday's game against the Magic due to a coach's decision.

Stuckey has been inconsistent this year with poor shot selection and careless turnovers, so this decision by Lawrence Frank shouldn't come as a complete shock. Will Bynum will pick up some of the slack with Brandon Knight also likely to have more responsibility with the ball. Kyle Singler is also worth a look.

Ty Lawson will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

Jan 25 - 6:26 PM

Jimmy Butler was held to just five points during Sunday's loss to the Heat, adding five rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 42.5 minutes of action.

Butler shot just 2-of-8 from the field, so while the minutes were there, the scoring simply wasn't. Luol Deng was playing some vicious defense today, and this was easily Butler's worst game of the season. However, Butler has not had two bad back-to-back games this season, so expect him to bounce-back during Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors.
Jan 25 - 6:15 PM

Nikola Pekovic will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

Mo Williams, Andrew Wiggins, Thaddeus Young, and Gorgui Dieng will join Pekovic, so it's interesting and encouraging that Pek’s return to the starting lineup will not affect Dieng's status as a starter. We'll let you know how the pairing performs after the game.
Jan 25 - 6:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Amir Johnson (shoulder) will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Pistons, so go ahead and get him active.
Jan 25 - 5:58 PM

D.J. Augustin will start at point guard for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

The Pistons are looking at adding a third point guard, but Augustin is going to have essentially zero competition for playing time with Brandon Jennings (Achilles) going down for the rest of the season. Augustin needs to be picked up in all leagues.
Jan 25 - 5:43 PM

Brandan Wright (sore left heel) will be inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

This injury is coming out of nowhere, however, considering he's simply dealing with a sore heel he shouldn't be sidelined for an extended amount of time. With Wright unavailable, look for Miles Plumlee to step back into the rotation as the first big off the bench. However, Plumlee is still stuck in a reserve role, so he's not a great play in most leagues.
Jan 25 - 5:34 PM

Amir Johnson (shoulder) will play on Sunday vs. Detroit.

It's not yet known if he will be a starter, or if he'll come off the bench behind Patrick Patterson, so we'll be waiting for an update on that. However, he'll have a favorable matchup vs. Detroit today, so he's worth activating in standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 5:30 PM

Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

Martin was listed as questionable earlier, but he is still dealing with some swelling in his wrist, so he will not play on Sunday. Robbie Hummel will draw another start on Sunday, but the true beneficiaries of Martin's absence remain Andrew Wiggins and Mo Williams.
Jan 25 - 4:58 PM

C.J. Miles (left groin strain) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

With Miles unavailable, Rodney Stuckey will likely slide back into the starting lineup. Stuckey is averaging 11.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.2 assists as a starter, and he figures to be a low-end option in daily leagues. C.J. Watson will also likely see some extended minutes.
Jan 25 - 4:46 PM

Ryan Anderson (bilateral ankle inflammation) is expected to play Sunday vs. Dallas.

Anderson was forced to sit during the Pelicans' last game, but it appears his ankle injury will only cause him to spend one game on the sidelines. Anderson's return to the lineup will hurt the value of Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter, and Alixis Ajinca.
Jan 25 - 4:30 PM

Aaron Gordon will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. Indiana, sending Devyn Marble to the bench.

It was really only a matter of time until Marble was sent to the bench, as he's simply not a starting-caliber guy in the league. Gordon will draw his first career-start tonight, but with a tough matchup against the Pacers, he's not a great option in daily leagues.
