Updating a previous item, the Knicks do not have any MRI or X-ray evaluations scheduled on Carmelo Anthony's injured right knee, according to the MSG Network broadcast.

Anthony said he has been dealing with soreness in his right knee for a couple weeks and he had an MRI "a couple days ago." The team will re-evaluate him just to make sure, but a diagnosis doesn't seem likely to be confirmed by further testing. He walked back to the locker room without a limp in the first quarter, then was ruled out just a few minutes later. The good news is that he appears to have avoided injury and should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Nerlens Noel (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Joel Embiid (illness) is still questionable to play. Noel should be looking at minutes in the low 20s regardless of Embiid's status. Jahlil Okafor could be getting minutes in the upper 20s or he could be a DNP-CD. Noel is worth owning in standard leagues right now.
Jan 18 - 5:18 PM

T.J. McConnell (wrist) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He went through shootaround this morning and wasn't wearing a wrist splint. McConnell went through his pre-game routine and apparently didn't have a setback. He did play through his wrist injury when he suffered it on Saturday, but he was held out on Monday. He should play close to 30 minutes while Sergio Rodriguez backs him up.
Jan 18 - 5:10 PM

Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) and Danilo Gallinari (right ankle sprain) are probable to play Thursday vs. the Spurs.

When they're listed as probable in Denver, that means that they'll get out there, so owners can feel confident plugging these guys in their lineups on Thursday. Jokic has been putting up top-3 numbers in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, so he's obviously a must-start guy every time he's active.
Jan 18 - 5:04 PM

Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

He had some blurred vision on Tuesday and is still in the concussion protocol. Nogueira's fantasy owners should probably just sit tight and hope he can return this weekend. With him out, Paskal Siakam is likely to start, but fantasy owners should steer clear. The Raptors could also go small to give more run to Norman Powell and Terrence Ross.
Jan 18 - 4:58 PM

Wilson Chandler (personal) is listed as out for Thursday against the Spurs.

Being listed as out isn't the same thing as being out, so hopefully we get another update on Thursday before the road game. Kenneth Faried has played really well in the first unit, which has cost Chandler some playing time. He's still worth owning, though. If he is indeed out, Faried, Jusuf Nurkic and Juan Hernangomez could play more.
Jan 18 - 4:56 PM

Updating a previous item, Klay Thompson (personal) is now questionable to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

It was just five minutes ago Klay was called out for this game, but now there is a chance he can make it back with the team in time for tonight after dealing with a family matter. He'll likely be a game-time call for the late start tonight, so DFS players likely won't know when it's time to set your lineup. If he's out, Pat McCaw, Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala would benefit.
Jan 18 - 2:15 PM

Chris Paul underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, and he's expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks of action.

This timetable puts CP3 back on the court right around the fantasy playoffs, but in the meantime it'll be Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers running the point in Los Angeles. Blake Griffin (knee) isn't expected to get back for at least another 1-2 weeks, so Jamal Crawford could be looked to more often on offense. If you're in a standard league and struggling in the standings without an IR-spot, selling CP3 for pennies or outright cutting him may be the only course of action here.
Jan 18 - 2:08 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Biyombo took a nasty spill during Monday's game, but he played through it, and after resting up on Tuesday he'll be good to go for tonight's game. Biyombo hasn't been very good this season, owning meager averages of 6.1 points, 7.6 boards and 1.3 blocks per contest, so while his bones may very well be infused with liquid adamantium, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 1:33 PM

Kevin Love (back) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, and he's being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns.

Love didn't take any contact during Wednesday's practice, and with a matchup against the 13-28 Suns, the Cavs may want to play it safe with Love in order to have him 100 percent for Saturday's matchup with the Spurs. We should get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but it's looking like he'll be headed for a game-time call. If he's out, Channing Frye would likely draw the start, with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving being asked to do a bit more on offense.
Jan 18 - 12:40 PM

Jon Leuer (knee) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks.

Leuer did get in a full practice on Tuesday and participated during shootaround, and head coach Stan Van Gundy acknowledged that he could return to action tonight, so things are trending in a positive direction here. If Leuer does get back to the court, Tobias Harris will return to the bench and Stanley Johnson could lose some minutes. Check back closer to tip-off for an official update.
Jan 18 - 12:32 PM

Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) said that he will play Wednesday vs. Orlando.

Davis really likes going up against the Magic, in eight career outings against Orlando he owns impressive averages of 18.8 points, 13.4 boards, 1.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and a whopping 4.1 swats per contest, so he's on the radar as a potential DFS target. Just check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
