Pau Gasol (foot) will have an ultrasound on Tuesday, but Mike D'Antoni expects him to be cleared to return to practice.

Gasol is undergoing an ultrasound after reporting soreness following a recent 2-on-2 workout, but D'Antoni talked of using Wednesday and Thursday in practice to "reintegrate Gasol," so both the Lakers and fantasy owners will be hoping for good news. We'll know more after the ultrasound and should have a clearer timetable at that point. The earliest Gasol could return is Friday against Washington.

Myles Turner did not play down the stretch against the Pistons on Friday, making 3-of-13 from the field for seven points with five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He just didn't have it on offense while the Pacers were rolling with their unit without him in the fourth. Shockingly, Turner missed all 10 shots from within 20 feet in this game, so credit Andre Drummond there. Turner has kind of cooled off since his "I'm back" 21-point, 12-board game on Nov. 7, averaging 9.8 points, 6.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.4 treys and 2.6 blocks in those five. The blocks are still making his owners happy, but this presents one of the best buy-low opportunities for one of the hardest categories to add in fantasy. We still view Turner as an elite fantasy asset.

Skal Labissiere will replace Willie Cauley-Stein in the starting lineup on Friday vs. the Blazers.

Strangely enough, the Kings are going to start Zach Randolph at center against Jusuf Nurkic. Good luck with that. Skal definitely deserves more minutes and has shown some really nice flashes this season, but it's hard to add him until we see if he sticks in the first unit.

Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

He was originally expected to play, but the Pelicans will continue to be cautious. Darius Miller has thrived in Allen's absence, averaging 17.0 points, 0.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal and 3.5 triples over his last two games.
Nov 17 - 9:21 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is questionable to return to Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

He's dealing with left knee soreness, so it's not the same knee that bothered him earlier this season. With Shumpert's night possibly over, Jose Calderon is the next man up with Derrick Rose (ankle) out at least a couple weeks.
Nov 17 - 9:00 PM

Mason Plumlee (core strain) is expected to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

He had an MRI and it came back clean, and coach Mike Malone said it's just about him playing through the pain. Plumlee is only a deep-league fantasy asset as he's averaging just 15.4 minutes per game as Nikola Jokic's backup.

Maxi Kleber is starting at forward for Mavs against the Wolves on Friday.

Coach Rick Carlisle is reaching here with a starting lineup of Dennis Smith Jr., Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Maxi and Dirk Nowitzki. This is bad news for the other Mavs bigs and it's really tough to even attack this team in fantasy because of the bad offense. Well, you can attack them with other players. We'll let you know how it goes, but leave Kleber on the wire in most leagues.

Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.

The Jazz play again on Saturday vs. Orlando, so hopefully they are just resting him for that one. With Sefolosha out, Jonas Jerebko is looking at extended minutes and is worth a look if you need 3-pointers -- he's hit three triples in each of his last two games.
Nov 17 - 6:54 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Friday.

Coach Doc Rivers said he's going to miss at least one more game, but the team listed him as doubtful today. With Beverley out, it's the Lou Williams show while Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans should be in the rotation. The Clippers need a win.
Nov 17 - 6:54 PM

Pascal Siakam will start for Serge Ibaka (knee) against the Knicks on Friday.

He gets the fun job of guarding Kristaps Porzingis. Siakam should be looking at a good amount of minutes because OG Anunoby will be playing some three, so it's not a bad idea to use Siakam in DFS or as a stream tonight.
Nov 17 - 6:46 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Trevor Booker will start against the Jazz on Friday.

This is the same starting lineup as Tuesday, but using it against Utah is somewhat noteworthy. Booker has played very well and so has Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, so coach Kenny Atkinson just wants his best five out there despite Booker being so short for a five man.
Nov 17 - 6:42 PM

Rodney Hood is expected to start alongside Donovan Mitchell on Friday vs. the Nets.

The Jazz have had some really tough luck with injuries and will be missing Ricky Rubio (Achilles) tonight. Mitchell is starting at PG, so Hood should slide right back into his old role. He's hot over his last five games with 20.6 points and 3.4 triples, so he belongs in fantasy lineups.
