A person with knowledge of the situation tells USA Today's Sam Amick that Larry Sanders' injury is "very minor."

Sanders is questionable to play Wednesday after X-rays on his hip were negative. According to Amick, there were initial concerns Sanders fractured his back after taking a scary fall Tuesday night. We're dubious about Sanders' ability to play Wednesday, but owners should be happy he didn't suffer a more serious injury.

Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's matchup with the Knicks.

Beverley has spent the past five games on the sidelines, but he's been ramping up his activities at practice and Monday seems like a very realistic potential return date. If he is able to get back out there Sindarius Thornwell will head back to the bench and Juwan Evans could drop from the rotation entirely. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround.

Markieff Morris will be limited to around 24 minutes for Sunday's matchup against Toronto.

The Wizards are still being cautious with Morris following his hernia surgery, so they'll keep his minutes in the lower-20s tonight with this being the first game of a back-to-back set. He's been up-and-down this season playing limited minutes in Washington, but he should be flirting with top-75 value once he's fully up to speed, making him worth a hold in most scenarios.

Tim Frazier will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Raptors, with John Wall (knee) unavailable.

Frazier put up four points, eight dimes, two points and a steal through 31 minutes as a starter his last time out there with Wall on the sidelines, so he could be someone to think about deploying as a low-end streamer or DFS punt play. Per nbawowy, Bradley Beal's usage spike to 37.6 sans Wall, so he figures to be very busy tonight on the offensive end.

John Wall (sore left knee) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Wall said he felt like he could "barely move" after Friday's game in which he finished just 3-of-12 from the field, so it's not all that surprising to see him taking the night off, particularly with this being the first game of a back-to-back set. Tim Frazier will draw the start in his place tonight, and Bradley Beal will see a major spike in usage, making both those guys solid DFS targets. For now, We'll be considering Wall questionable for Monday's game in Milwaukee.
Nov 19 - 2:14 PM

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) will play on Sunday vs. the Wizards.

He's back after a one-game absence. Ibaka said he hasn't been 100 percent since banging his knee against Boston on Nov. 12, but hopefully the time off helped. Season-long owners can get him active and there's no word of any restrictions. Pascal Siakam is likely headed back to the bench, but he'll be worth deploying in the future if/when Ibaka needs to miss a game.

The 76ers announced on Sunday that Markelle Fultz will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks.

He had a checkup on Sunday and it went well, as the "soreness is dissipating and the muscle balance is improving." The 76ers added that he will continue to progress towards full basketball activities, but his return to action hinges on how well his shoulder responds to an increased workload on the practice court. He's only worth owning in re-draft formats if you have an IR spot and can afford to be patient with him.
Nov 19 - 1:06 PM

Anthony Davis (face) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Thunder.

Davis was in the concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head on Friday, but he has been cleared of the concussion diagnosis and is simply dealing with a facial contusion. His fantasy owners dodged a bullet and can go ahead and pencil him into active lineups.
Nov 19 - 12:13 PM

Kevin Durant will sit out against the Nets on Sunday with a left ankle sprain.

This is the second night of a back-to-back set and the Nets are one of the weakest teams in the NBA after losing Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell to injuries, so draw your own conclusions here. He apparently injured his ankle in the first quarter on Saturday, but finished with 27 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the 76ers. Injured or not, there's no way he's going to miss Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder. With Durant out, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson should both get more looks and pretty much every rotation player gets a bump.
Nov 19 - 11:49 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

He had X-rays after Friday's game, but they came back negative and was diagnosed with a sore left foot. Hardaway said he's not sure how he suffered this mysterious injury, but he said it's been bothering him since Thursday morning. THJ did not practice on Sunday, but check back on Monday morning to see if he's able to go through shootaround. If he can't play, rookie Damyean Dotson might get an opportunity to see minutes.
Nov 19 - 11:22 AM

Wes Matthews scored a season-high 22 points with two rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers against the Bucks on Saturday.

His eight dimes were also a season high, and that has been a trend this month with 3.8 per game -- he averaged a career-high 2.9 per game last season. Matthews is still ice cold inside the arc and his steals are down to just 0.9 in November. He's still getting a good amount of shots and chances are you weren't counting on him for FG%, so he should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 19 - 12:09 AM

The Bucks' four-game win streak was snapped on Saturday, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo's career-high 17 rebounds, with 24 points, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Antetokounmpo came in averaging a league-high 30.6 points per game, and his stellar 57.8% from the field was second only to LeBron James among non-centers. He made just 7-of-20 FGs and 9-of-13 FTs tonight, but fantasy owners still benefited from his steals and career-best work on the glass. He's simply ridiculous.
