DeMarcus Cousins received two technical fouls and was ejected at the end of the first half of Monday's game at Utah, reportedly calling an official a "bleeping female."

He was jawing at the refs at the end of the half and he'll finish with 10 points, six boards, two steals and one block in 19 minutes. Cousins took some sarcastic shots at Keith Smart on Saturday and he just can't seem to get out of his own way for immaturity issues. He leads the league with 12 technical fouls on the season and also has the most ejections with three. DMC might not be suspended for his actions on the court, but who knows what's going to happen off the court after the game? He will also get a one-game suspension once he hits 16 technicals.

Caris LeVert scored 14 points with four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes in Tuesdays 119-109 loss to the Raptors.

The rookie struggled with foul trouble in the first half, but came out firing in the third quarter with a couple treys. He finished 6-of-8 from the field with one turnover, and coach Kenny Atkinson wasn't hesitant to put him on DeMar DeRozan on the defensive end. He's been great in limited minutes, but it feels like it's just a matter of time before he takes Joe Harris' spot in the first unit. LeVert looks like a solid stash for the second half of the season on a Nets' team that should prioritize player development. For what it's worth, LeVert led the team with a +/- rating of +9 in the double-digit loss.

Luol Deng will not play on Tuesday due to a sprained right wrist and will be out indefinitely.

This came out of nowhere, but he apparently suffered the injury two days ago and he was sporting a huge wrap on his wrist prior to being ruled out. Look for Brandon Ingram to get some extra run in his absence, while Thomas Robinson could also see a small boost. Deng has a history of wrist problems so it will be interesting to see how long this one keeps him out.

Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and he's going to draw the start.

He was listed as probable, but he's looking at a lot of minutes in the absence of Gary Harris (ankle), making him a popular play in DFS. The Nuggets play three more times this week after tonight, so pick Barton up if he's available.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Both players were listed as probable, but they are ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Get them active and check back after the game for an update.
Jan 17 - 9:18 PM

Eric Gordon suffered a lower right leg injury of some sort on Tuesday and went to the locker room, but returned a short time later.

He likely either aggravated his toe injury or suffered a sprained ankle, but whatever the case, he had it taped back up and is back in the game. He's having a tough night, currently sitting on seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.
Jan 17 - 9:09 PM

Lucas Nogueira (blurred vision) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

He has blurred vision in his left eye and will be re-evaluated again after the game. He was also being evaluated for a concussion, but we should know more about that soon. Paskal Siakam started the second half and Jakop Poeltl could play a bit more as well. Bebe finished with three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes. There are no great speculative pickups here.
Jan 17 - 8:50 PM

Raymond Felton is looking at a bump in minutes with Chris Paul (thumb surgery) out for the next 6-8 weeks.

Felton started the second half of Monday's game and looked great with 15 points on 7-of-7 shooting with six assists, three rebounds, one block, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes, and he averaged 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.7 triples in six previous starts this season. He's likely going to take over the starting role in Los Angeles and looks like a strong pickup in standard leagues. Austin Rivers also looks like a great pickup.
Jan 17 - 7:30 PM

Cory Joseph is starting in place of Kyle Lowry (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Lowry is getting the night off to rest some bumps and bruises, so Joseph could eclipse the 30-minute mark tonight and looks like a strong punt in DFS. DeMar DeRozan should also be a popular play, as his usage rate climbs from 31.7 to 41.5 with Lowry off the court.
Jan 17 - 7:21 PM

Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play Tuesday vs. Brooklyn.

Nothing like a very late and unexpected lineup change involving a stud to send DFS players scrambling at the last minute... The Raps announced that "Lowry will dress but likely not play to rest bumps/bruises." Safe to assume that playing the last-place Nets factored into Toronto's thought process, in addition to the fact that this is the front-end of a back-to-back for the Raps. Cory Joseph will replace Lowry in the lineup on Tuesday. Lowry should be ready to roll on Wednesday.
Jan 17 - 7:17 PM

Chris Paul has a torn ligament in his left thumb that will require surgery and he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

This is a brutal blow for the Clippers. With this report, we likely won't see Paul back until March at the earliest. Luckily, that's just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will both benefit and look like great pickups in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 7:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Steven Adams has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

He's still going through the league mandated concussion protocol testing, and he won't be able to return until he clears all the necessary steps. Because the Warriors like to play small, Jerami Grant could be looking at another start sans Adams, and Enes Kanter should see his minutes closer to the 30-minute mark. After Wednesday, the Thunder don't play again until Monday vs. the Jazz, so this might only end up being a two-game absence for Adams.
