Latest Headlines

Nikola Pekovic was a surprise scratch on Saturday due to a sprained left ankle.

He was coming off a terrific 22 & 15 performance in a win over the Thunder, and this news will catch many owners off-guard as it comes just 30 minutes before tip-off. Greg Stiemsma is likely to start at center in his absence, though he's only worth a spot-start if you're in dire need of blocks.

Raymond Felton is looking at a bump in minutes with Chris Paul (thumb surgery) out for the next 6-8 weeks.

Felton started the second half of Monday's game and looked great with 15 points on 7-of-7 shooting with six assists, three rebounds, one block, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes, and he averaged 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.7 triples in six previous starts this season. He's likely going to take over the starting role in Los Angeles and looks like a strong pickup in standard leagues. Austin Rivers also looks like a great pickup.

Cory Joseph is starting in place of Kyle Lowry (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Lowry is getting the night off to rest some bumps and bruises, so Joseph could eclipse the 30-minute mark tonight and looks like a strong punt in DFS. DeMar DeRozan should also be a popular play, as his usage rate climbs from 31.7 to 41.5 with Lowry off the court.

Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play Tuesday vs. Brooklyn.

Nothing like a very late and unexpected lineup change involving a stud to send DFS players scrambling at the last minute... The Raps announced that "Lowry will dress but likely not play to rest bumps/bruises." Safe to assume that playing the last-place Nets factored into Toronto's thought process, in addition to the fact that this is the front-end of a back-to-back for the Raps. Cory Joseph will replace Lowry in the lineup on Tuesday. Lowry should be ready to roll on Wednesday.

Chris Paul has a torn ligament in his left thumb that will require surgery and he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

This is a brutal blow for the Clippers. With this report, we likely won't see Paul back until March at the earliest. Luckily, that's just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will both benefit and look like great pickups in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 7:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Steven Adams has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

He's still going through the league mandated concussion protocol testing, and he won't be able to return until he clears all the necessary steps. Because the Warriors like to play small, Jerami Grant could be looking at another start sans Adams, and Enes Kanter should see his minutes closer to the 30-minute mark. After Wednesday, the Thunder don't play again until Monday vs. the Jazz, so this might only end up being a two-game absence for Adams.
Jan 17 - 6:57 PM

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, and his absence essentially ensures that Lucas Nogueira will get another start at the four-spot. Nogueira is worth owning as a shot blocking specialist in most leagues, while Patterson isn't worth a roster spot almost anywhere.
Jan 17 - 6:50 PM

Taj Gibson (sore left ankle) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Mavs, and Paul Zipser is expected to get the start in his place.

Zipser only saw 15 minutes of action in his previous start, so we wouldn't get too hyped up about him sticking in the starting five. Nikola Mirotic (illness) will be returning from a four-game absence today, and it'll likely be him and Doug McDermott splitting the majority of Gibson's minutes. Fred Hoiberg described Gibson's absence as precautionary and said it's unlikely that he'll need to undergo an MRI, so chances are he'll be able to return to the court for Friday's game in Atlanta.
Jan 17 - 6:22 PM

Corey Brewer will start in place of Ryan Anderson (illness) on Tuesday night vs. Miami.

Brewer has started six games for the Rockets this season; however, his stats in those starts are not encouraging. He is averaging 3.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.6 minutes over those six contests. Brewer's overall numbers are down in 2016-17. He is averaging 4.1 points and has scored more than 10 points just once all season. He should see 20-plus minutes tonight but is still a risky play even as DFS punt.
Jan 17 - 6:06 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

Corey Brewer will move into the starting five sans Anderson, with Trevor Ariza shifting over to the four-spot, and both James Harden and Eric Gordon will see an uptick to their respective usage rates. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so Anderson doesn't have much time to rest up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. For now we'll be considering him questionable, and his owners will need to check back for another update closer to Wednesday's tip.
Jan 17 - 6:04 PM

Omri Casspi will miss the next 1-2 weeks of action with a right calf injury.

Casspi randomly moves in and out of the rotation in Sacramento, so this injury won't have any major consequences in fantasy hoops.
Jan 17 - 5:19 PM

The Timberwolves are reportedly actively shopping Ricky Rubio.

The Wolves are reportedly trying to package Rubio and Shabazz Muhammad in order to bring in another guard that would initially start, but eventually, accept a backup role behind Minnesota's No. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn. Thus far the Kings have been the only team to express strong interest in acquiring Rubio, but the Wolves don't like what they can offer, and there's reportedly no traction between those two clubs on the trade front. It's tough to predict what Rubio's outlook will look like on another team, but this report firmly puts Dunn on the radar as a quality deep league stash.
