Latest Headlines

Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris and Markieff Morris started for the Suns on Friday.

The Suns will need their identity to change with Marcin Gortat likely out for the year. They have the personnel to play an up-tempo game, but this is something that will likely have its fair share of growing pains. All three of the new starters are worth looks in standard leagues. Marcus Morris has the highest upside while Markieff Morris seems like the safest bet for production.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Suns are engaged in trade talks for Eric Bledsoe with several teams.

Bledsoe was sent home from the morning shootaround and it doesn't sound like he will play for the Suns again -- he's already been ruled out for Monday's game. Until we know what teams are interested, it's hard to predict what type of value he will have in a new city. The good news is that a move would reduce his shut-down risk since the Suns are tanking harder than any other team.

Ersan Ilyasova will not play on Monday vs. Miami due to a left knee strain.

Ersanity was never known for his durability and the Hawks have every reason to be cautious in a rebuilding year. John Collins and Mike Muscala should both be more involved on Monday, but Collins is the guy you want in your fantasy lineup.

Dennis Schroder (left ankle sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the Heat.

An MRI on Monday morning confirmed a sprain for Schroder, but they did not provide a timetable. His owners just need to sit tight for now, but expect the Hawks to be cautious. Malcolm Delaney is the next man up in Atlanta and is worth a short-term look for PG-needy owners.

Eric Bledsoe (personal) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

Fire up the trade rumors. A report late Sunday night indicated that Bledsoe requested a trade prior to the season, and he sent out a cryptic Tweet that he wants out of Phoenix. Bledsoe met with the front office on Monday morning before the team's shootaround, but all we know is that he was sent home shortly after. His days on the Suns appear to be numbered. Fantasy owners should have Tyler Ulis and Mike James at the top of their watch lists.

Myles Turner (concussion, sore neck) has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves.

The Pacers only have three games this week and it's unclear if he will play on Wednesday, making him a risky start in weekly formats. With Turner out, Domantas Sabonis and Al Jefferson will continue to see a bump in playing time, but Sabonis looks like the better add.

J.R. Smith will take Dwyane Wade's place in the starting lineup going forward.

Wade requested to move to the second unit, and Smith is arguably a better fit in the starting lineup because of his floor spacing. Smith put up just 8.6 points and 2.3 triples as a full-time starter last season, so there's no reason to add him in most leagues unless you're desperate for 3-pointers.

The Cavaliers will move Dwyane Wade to the second unit going forward.

It's probably the right move for the Cavaliers, as Wade can be more aggressive in the second unit. For what it's worth, Wade is actually the one who requested to make the switch. With J.R. Smith back in the starting lineup, that also spreads the floor better for LeBron James. Wade was a low-end asset in fantasy before this news so this doesn't move the needle much.
Oct 23 - 12:46 PM

Malcolm Brogdon is listed as out for Monday's game vs. Charlotte due to a sprained left ankle.

This comes from the team's game notes, so there's no official word from the Bucks. Assuming Brogdon is out, Matthew Dellavedova will be looking at a heavy workload as the starting PG, while Jason Terry would likely get some run at the point as well.

Kris Dunn (finger) will return to practice on Monday.

He's doubtful to play on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers, but he's ahead of schedule considering he wasn't expected back until November. Once he returns to action, Dunn will have a chance to compete with Jerian Grant for the starting job, but it's possible this becomes a timeshare.
Oct 23 - 12:17 PM

Ryan Anderson is questionable for Monday's game vs. Memphis with lower back pain.

The oft-injured forward is off to a rocky start to the season, posting 8.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers on 34.8 percent shooting. If he can't go, the Rockets will likely play more small ball with P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute picking up more minutes.
Oct 23 - 11:50 AM

Dennis Smith Jr. (left knee effusion) said he will play on Monday night vs. the Warriors.

After two straight games on the shelf due to swelling in his left knee, DSJ is back. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle indicated that the Mavs aren't concerned about the injury and it's a really good sign that he's returning so quickly considering how cautious the Mavs tend to be. For what it's worth, DSJ said he played through a similar issue at N.C. State. There's no word on any limitations for now, so season-long owners should activate him. Both J.J. Barea and Yogi Ferrell take a hit with DSJ active.
