Celtics big man Vitor Faverani is dealing with "bits of plantar fasciitis," according to Danny Ainge.

Fellow rookie Kelly Olynyk is also recovering from a mild bout of plantar fasciitis. Fantasy owners know how troublesome the injury can be, lingering for weeks if not months, and Boston may opt to limit Faverani and Olynyk during training camp and the preseason. Faverani faces an uphill battle for minutes at PF and C, while Olynyk may eventually start at center on a team with no other true 7-footers.

Ricky Rubio (hip) will start on Friday night against the Blazers.

The Jazz didn't miss him too much while he was out and they continue to be the hottest team in the NBA. Rubio is going to have a minutes limit tonight, but he should be back in all fantasy lineups. We should see Royce O'Neale, Jae Crowder and some other bench guys take a hit here.

Aron Baynes (left elbow) will not return against the Pistons on Friday.

The team originally called him available to return from his left elbow injury, but apparently the injury was worse than originally thought. Daniel Theis has been tearing it up in the first half, so coach Brad Stevens may just go with him even more after halftime. He's not really a strong pickup unless he was already on your radar before today.

Danny Green (illness) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He reportedly had bad spaghetti to cause food poisoning, so this makes it the second noteworthy food issue for the Spurs -- Kawhi Leonard was sick from a Philly cheesesteak years ago. With him out, it'll be a team effort from the guards with Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Derrick White and Manu Ginobili playing more.

Eric Gordon (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

He had a knee contusion before the All-Star break and it's not clear if that is also bothering him. The Rockets are getting Trevor Ariza (hamstring) back tonight, but Gerald Green could keep some of his minutes with Gordon out.
Feb 23 - 7:49 PM

Pau Gasol is back in the starting lineup alongside LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

This means Davis Bertans will head back to the bench. Gasol averages 25.2 minutes as a starter compared to 18.0 minutes as a reserve, so his fantasy owners will be hoping this move sticks.
Feb 23 - 7:40 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Not much of a surprise here with Gallinari suffering the hand injury on Thursday night. It's certainly possible he misses more games because he's not the fastest healer. With him out, it'll be Tyrone Wallace, Austin Rivers and Wes Johnson stepping up at the small forward spot. We could see some more Montrezl Harrell, too.
Feb 23 - 7:38 PM

Tyson Chandler (neck spasms) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

Chandler is visiting a specialist but we haven't heard any results yet. Either way, we probably won't see much of him the rest of the season with the Suns embracing the tank. Expect to see a lot of Alex Len tonight and maybe some center minutes for Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss.
Feb 23 - 7:18 PM

John Collins will start against the Pacers on Friday.

Giddy up. He is expected to join Dennis Schroder, Taurean Prince, Kent Bazemore and Dewayne Dedmon in the first unit. Collins should be looking for more minutes and he could get to 30 per game more often, assuming he stays out of foul trouble. Collins needs to be owned everywhere in fantasy.
Feb 23 - 6:37 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) is not at the arena yet and could miss Friday's game against the Wolves.

It sounds like he's not going to play, but of course that could change shortly. If he's out, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute could help out with Trevor Ariza also back in the lineup.
Feb 23 - 6:24 PM

John Henson (hamstring) is starting against the Raptors on Friday.

His hamstring issue has been a problem for most of this month, but Henson has been expected to play all day. He will likely have a soft minutes cap in his return to action and it will be tough for him to keep his minutes high with Tyler Zeller playing well behind him.
Feb 23 - 6:20 PM

Ersan Ilyasova will not play on Friday night against the Pacers.

He is expected to be bought out in the near future, which means the Hawks should focus even more on their youth. This should pave the way for John Collins to see minutes around 30 per game while the other forwards should see a slight bump in minutes. Ilyasova is a drop candidate in most leagues.
