Chandler Parsons (calf) and Carlos Delfino (flu) both sat out Monday's practice.

Both guys are questionable to return vs. the Suns on Tuesday -- Parsons was "optimistic" that he'd be able to return, but that was contingent upon his practicing on Monday. Fantasy owners should make contingency plans -- if neither guy suits up, Francisco Garcia will once again be an excellent spot-start.

James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season.

Matt Barnes (calf) will not play against the Hornets on Monday and he could miss a few games.

He's been dealing with a calf issue for about the past week and the Clippers will just sit him down tonight. It'll be second-year swingman Reggie Bullock in the starting lineup, but Jamal Crawford probably benefits most. Barnes is not worth owning in most leagues.

Tobias Harris (calf) will not play on Monday night against the Cavs.

This will be his second game out of the lineup and the Magic will have to tweak their rotation again. Nikola Vucevic had a career game last time out while Elfrid Payton benefitted as Evan Fournier and Victor Oladipo held down the wings. Moe Harkless will also get more burn.
Nov 24 - 5:35 PM

P.J. Hairston (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

For some reason they upgraded him to questionable, but they're pulling him out 90 minutes before the game. Hairston was losing ground in his brief opportunity, so he's unlikely to be a key contributor. Gary Neal and Gerald Henderson are low-end plays tonight.

Brandon Knight is listed as questionable for Tuesday against the Pistons.

He went to the locker room on Saturday, but did return and looked pretty good. The Bucks have a four-game week coming up, so his fantasy owners should probably still start him even with some uncertainty. If you have safe options, it makes some sense to bench Knight, though. Jerryd Bayless, Kendall Marshall, Nate Wolters, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo would all help sans Knight.

Ed Davis (ankle) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) missed practice on Monday.

Davis drew the start on Sunday, but was a major letdown with just four points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and six fouls in 22 minutes against a soft Nuggets D. His ankle injury is not considered serious and we would expect him to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. The "revenge game" narrative has lost some of its mojo, so Davis might not be a great play for that one.

Xavier Henry may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and is getting an MRI.

This is just not right for Henry. He's had multiple severe knee injuries and just can't stay on the court. Hopefully the MRI comes back negative, but the Lakers haven't had the best luck with MRIs in the past two seasons. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson may get more run without Henry, but neither are fantasy options.

Kevin Durant (foot) went through some contact in practice on Monday.

He has a big evaluation coming up on Thanksgiving, but his return is getting close. At the very earliest, he could play Friday, but that would be extremely optimistic. His owner should bench him because he is not even allowed to play on Wednesday because of the NBA's hardship exception. The Thunder only have a Friday game after that. Anyone who grabbed KD in their drafts should feel pretty good right now.

Russell Westbrook (hand) could return to Friday's game against the Knicks.

He went through some contact in practce on Monday. Last week he wasn't supposed to be re-evaluated until the coming weekend, but he's apparently doing much better than expected. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues will still probably want to bench Westbrook because the Thunder have no games after Friday this week. Reggie Jackson will lose some value, but he should still be worth owning in just about all leagues.
Nov 24 - 2:28 PM

Thaddeus Young (personal) returned to practice on Monday.

Young is on track to play on Wednesday against Milwaukee and has returned to the team following the tragic loss of his mother. Our thoughts are with Young and his family. With his return, Anthony Bennett should be heading back to the bench.
Nov 24 - 1:45 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Mavericks.

The Pacers just can't catch a break. Without Hibbert, the team is expected to start Ian Mahinmi at center against an explosive Dallas offense that has looked unstoppable at times. Hibbert does not currently have a timetable to return, but Mahinmi should be a solid low-end plug-and-play option for however long Hibbert is sidelined.
