Andrew Bynum (knee surgeries) will be on crutches for six weeks.

Most athletes can return to action following a simple scope in 2-3 weeks. At this point, Bynum is not most athletes. He's previously had major surgeries to repair a dislocated kneecap, torn cartilage, sustained bone bruises and underwent experimental procedures in Germany. Bynum carries a truck full of red flags as he heads into unrestricted free agency.

Kevin Love (back) will play against the Spurs on Saturday night.

Jan 21 - 6:49 PM

Sam Dekker will start on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

With Ryan Anderson (flu) out, it's usually been Corey Brewer starting. This time, coach Mike D'Antoni is going with a little more size, which makes sense against the Grizzlies. Dekker has impressed us this season and he can add a little bit of everything to the stat sheet, so he may have some attractive value until Ryno comes back.

Jabari Parker has been benched for Saturday's game against the Heat due to a team rule violation.

Those are really all the details we have so far on this. Coach Jason Kidd is about as unpredictable as they come, so Parker could play anywhere from zero seconds to 47 minutes and 59 seconds. Thon Maker will get the start with Parker being punished. Obviously there's no long-term concern here, but DFS owners probably want to steer clear of this situation today. Although, you have to like Giannis Antetokounmpo even more.

Matt Dellavedova will start and Malcolm Brogdon will come off the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

This is designed to get Dellavedova going and get out of a slump, according to coach Jason Kidd. It could be a one-time thing for Delly and he wasn't playing well even when he was a starter before the injury, so leave him on the wire for now.

Thon Maker will start for Jabari Parker against the Heat on Saturday.

Coach Jason Kidd is at it again. The Bucks are on the road for the back-to-back set, so Jabari getting the night off clearly comes to mind here. There's an off chance the team just wants to get a look at Maker, but that's quite the sharp adjustment. We wouldn't suggest using Parker in DFS today.

Spencer Dinwiddie, Sean Kilpatrick, Bojan Bogdanovic, Trevor Booker and Brook Lopez will start against the Hornets on Saturday.

The Nets will keep the NBA's newest sensation, Caris LeVert, on the bench. That's OK, though. Coach Kenny Atkinson likes LeVert a lot as a ball-handler, so he should be very busy in the second unit. As for Kilpatrick, he's been struggling lately, so maybe the day off helps him.

Tyler Johnson (left shoulder strain) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday.

The team is listing his as day-to-day with this injury, which may have been suffered on Thursday. Johnson does come off the bench, but the team calls him Mr. Fourth Quarter for a reason. With him out, we're probably going to see some Dion Waiters at the point, so don't be surprised if he comes off the bench. Wayne Ellington is also likely looking at more starts and may even start.
Jan 21 - 5:52 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is available to play against the Suns on Saturday.

We'll see if he starts, but he might not be with the Knicks going 5-1 without him. If Noah is going to play, that should take away from Kyle O'Quinn the most. The Knicks also used a ton of Kristaps Porzingis at the five in their last one, so that'll be something we'll watch, as well. Noah isn't worth owning.
Jan 21 - 5:48 PM

Justin Hamilton (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

It's his turn to get the day off in a back-to-back set. With Trevor Booker getting the night off on Friday, he basically slides right back into his old role -- Hamilton played all power forward on Friday. We should see a lot of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the four.
Jan 21 - 5:46 PM

Jahlil Okafor will start for Joel Embiid (rest) against the Hawks on Saturday.

Okafor was a monster in his last start for Embiid with a season-high 26 points. Although, Nerlens Noel was in foul trouble and was hurt, so it was a perfect storm for Okafor to have a good game. He's a viable player to use today, but his long-term value doesn't look great.
Jan 21 - 5:43 PM

D'Angelo Russell (knee) did not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Mavs.

The team is still awaiting the results of his MRI. There's no word of him rejoining with the team, so he's almost certainly out. Russell doesn't seem to be concerned about this injury long term and hopefully he only needs one game off. With him out, Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson should be starting in most formats while Jose Calderon will see more run.
