Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) is questionable to return on Wednesday.

Washington is already missing Markieff Morris, so Mike Scott could get a lot of run if Smith isn't able to return.

Anthony Davis has strep throat and head coach Alvin Gentry said that he'll be monitoring AD's minutes for Wednesday's season opener against Memphis.

He's yet to actually play in a regular-season game, and already, The Brow is working with a potential minutes limit. For what it's worth, Davis said he wants to play his normal minutes, but the decision will ultimately be up to Gentry, and there's no reason to push things this early on. Season-long owners shouldn't hesitate to get AD active, but this report makes him somewhat less desirable in DFS.

Stanley Johnson will start in Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets.

Joining him in the starting five will be Reggie Jackson, Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond. Stan Van Gundy has hinted that he'll be mixing and matching his starting five all year long, so while Johnson will get the call tonight, he could be replaced in the coming days based on the matchup.

Jrue Holiday, E'Twaun Moore, Dante Cunningham, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins will start Wednesday vs. Memphis.

With Holiday shifting back over to point guard while Rajon Rondo (hernia) is out, Moore looks like the starting shooting guard moving forward, although that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Holiday, Davis and Cousins will take the lion's share of touches on offense, so Moore and Cunningham will have a tough time putting up enough stats to make an impact in 12-team formats.

Victor Oladipo will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nets, as expected.

The Pacers will go with the same starting five that they used throughout the preseason, feautring Darren Collison, Oladipo, Bojan Bogdanovic, Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner. Oladipo is primed for a bounce-back year with Russell Westbrook no longer around to dominate the rock, and Turner figures to churn out career numbers as the new face of the franchise in Indiana. Make sure you have these guys active.

Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Magic on Wednesday.

It's no surprise here as coach Erik Spoelstra wants to keep James Johnson and Tyler Johnson in the second unit. Richardson has handled the ball more than usual, and he's also said he's looking to lead NBA wings in blocks this year. His fantasy owners will be hoping he can build off his big preseason for a career year. Get him in all of your season-long lineups.

Gordon Hayward has officially been diagnosed with a dislocated and fractured left tibia and he will have surgery on Wednesday.

Head coach Brad Stevens wouldn't speculate if this will be a season-ending injury for Hayward, but we should have an official timetable once he goes under the knife. Marcus Smart will move into the starting five with Hayward on the sidelines, and there will be more minutes for guys like Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Terry Rozier and even Abdel Nader, while Kyrie Irving will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Hayward is cut-candidate in leagues without an IR-spot.

Zach Randolph (oral surgery) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Coach Dave Joerger won't have his old Memphis big man shooting 3-pointers in this opener. With Randolph out, Willie Cauley-Stein could play slightly more while Skal Labissiere, Georgios Papagiannis and Kosta Koufos could step up.
Oct 18 - 5:55 PM

Marcus Smart will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks.

Smart started the second half on Tuesday and finished with 12 points, nine boards, three dimes, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 35 minutes, and he should remain in the starting five for however long Gordon Hayward (ankle) is sidelined. The shooting percentages won't be pretty, but Smart will bring enough stats to the boxscore to warrant ownership in most leagues.

Kenny Atkinson said he's going to be "cautious" with increasing Allen Crabbe's minutes because of how much time he missed during the preseason.

Crabbe missed a lot of training camp and the preseason due to a sprained ankle, so the Nets are going to ease him into things. He's made it clear that his preference would be to start, but for now, it looks like DeMarre Carroll is locked in as the starting small forward. Crabbe could eventually usurp Carroll for that starting spot, but regardless of how he enters the game, he figures to be a fixture in the rotation and should be a solid source of points and triples this season.
Oct 18 - 5:49 PM

Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

It's the lineup they've used in the preseason, so no surprises here. The Nets were also extremely fast in the preseason, so they may actually be faster than their first-ranked pace last year. Carroll should get minutes at both forward spots, but most fantasy owners can take a wait and see approach.
