After getting a second opinion from team doctors, Pau Gasol (foot) will miss a minimum of six to eight weeks.

An MRI on Wednesday revealed Gasol has a partial tear of the plantar fascia. There's been no announcement of whether Gasol will undergo surgery or whether he will try rehab first. If Gasol opts for surgery, he reportedly could be sidelined for up to three months. If you were holding onto Gasol, now's the time to dump him in most formats. Earl Clark and Metta World Peace should see the biggest boost in value while Gasol is sidelined.

Jon Leuer (knee) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Washington, but will not be in the starting lineup.

Jan 21 - 10:42 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

Jan 21 - 10:40 AM

Joel Embiid (knee/rest) will not travel to Atlanta for Saturday’s game (pre-scheduled rest) but expects to be available for Tuesday’s contest against the Clippers.

The good news is that Embiid, who was forced out of Friday's game due to a left knee issue, avoided a significant injury. "I knew it was OK. I just landed the wrong way," said Embiid. "I’m great. The knee’s fine. They did an MRI and stuff, everything looked good." Here is what coach Brett Brown had to say: "The review is that he hyperextended his left knee. There was a minor tweak again, and for precautionary reasons only, the doctors did not allow him to return." Philly and Embiid owners cane breathe a sigh of relief, and can continue Trusting the Process. Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor will see additional minutes on Saturday.

Rudy Gobert exploded for a career-high 27 points and 25 boards in a 112-107 overtime win in Dallas on Friday, adding one assist, one steal and two blocks in 41 minutes.

What? Only two blocks? Kidding aside, Gobert continues to be one of the best per-possesion scorers in the NBA, making 8-of-11 from the field and 11-of-17 from the line today. He put up the NBA's first 25-25 line of the season with a whopping seven offensive boards coming in the fourth quarter and overtime tonight. He's leading the NBA in blocks and in percentage at the rim against to make a strong case for Defensive Player of the Year. If you didn't think he should be an All-Star, this line has to change your mind.

Lou Williams scored 27 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers on Friday vs. the Pacers.

Coach Luke Walton said before the game that he is "probably not" going to shorten his bench minutes, but now he may have to extend them with D'Angelo Russell leaving the game early with a right MCL sprain. Williams shot 7-of-15 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line in 30 minutes, so his owners can expect some monster production if Russell is unable to play on Sunday vs. Dallas.
Jan 21 - 2:14 AM

Brandon Ingram scored 15 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Pacers.

Coach Luke Walton was impressed after the game and said Ingram is "progressing faster than a typical 19-year-old rookie." Ingram made another start in place of Luol Deng (wrist) tonight and hit 6-of-14 shots from the field in 33 minutes, so it looks like it's time to pick him up. Deng is likely day-to-day even though initial reports suggested he would be out a while, but Ingram should see plenty of minutes going forward no matter what.
Jan 21 - 2:07 AM

Nick Young (knee) returned from an injury scare in Friday's 108-96 win over the Pacers and scored 15 points in 26 minutes.

He hyperextended his left knee in the second quarter, but X-rays were negative and he returned for the second half. Young was moving well and hit five 3-pointers with three rebounds, one assist and one steal, and while he did say his knee was "a little sore" after the game, he should be fine for Sunday's game vs. Dallas unless the Lakers want to be cautious.
Jan 21 - 1:44 AM

Kevin Durant was on his A game during a 125-108 win in Houston on Friday, making 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

He was just awesome on the defensive end in what has been an underrated part of his game in his career. The Warriors also made all of their shots off KD passes today. Obviously, it's about his offense and you may need a microscope to spot a KD slump. Durant has turned in a true shooting percentage below 60 in two consecutive games in just one instance this year. That and the stats across the board make him fantasy's No. 1 player this season.
Jan 21 - 1:28 AM

Clint Capela showed he was close to 100 percent against the Warriors on Friday, scoring a career-high 22 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

We'll keep this one simple here. If Capela is somehow on your waiver wire, go fix that right now and pick him up.
Jan 21 - 12:49 AM

Marc Gasol scored 28 points in 33 minutes in Friday's 107-91 win over the Kings.

Gasol filled it up tonight, shooting 9-of-19 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three triples in 33 minutes. Gasol has now scored 24+ points in three straight games, but his owners will want to make sure he's active on Saturday vs. the Rockets on the second night of a back-to-back set -- Gasol has rested twice this season and both DNPs occurred during back-to-back sets.
Jan 21 - 12:15 AM

D'Angelo Russell (knee, calf) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

In addition to his right MCL sprain, Russell also has a strained right calf. The Lakers didn't rule Russell out right away, so hopefully the injuries are minor. Russell is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday, but don't be surprised if he misses time since the Lakers have nothing to play for. Jose Calderon started the second half, but he's not a great speculative pickup. Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams will each get a boost with Russell out.
