The NBA suspended Jason Kidd for two games after pleading guilty to driving while impaired.

He plead guilty on July 16 for a misdemeanor drunken driving charge. This was an expected move by the NBA and the Nets are fully prepared for it. Assistant coach Lawrence Frank has conducted much of the offensive drills in practice and is more than capable of running the team in Kidd's absence. The Nets play at Cleveland on October 30 and host the Heat on November 1.

Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) is in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Warriors

DSJ is back after a two-game absence, but there's no word of any restrictions. He joins Yogi Ferrell, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki in the starting lineup. J.J. Barea will move to the bench and can be dropped in most leagues if DSJ comes out of this game without any setbacks.

Mike James, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Marquese Chriss and Tyson Chandler will start against the Kings on Monday.

Now that Earl Watson is gone, Chriss will get a chance to show what he can do in the first unit. On Saturday, he talked about how he could be taking plays off, and it may have had something to do with him starting. In other words, he should be very motivated tonight and will look to get his season off the ground. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Lucas Nogueira will draw the start in place of Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Nogueira started the second half of Saturday's game vs. Philly when J-Val left the game, finishing with 10 points with nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 16 minutes. J-Val is hopeful to return on this six-game road trip, but coach Dwane Casey said Nogueira will start until he's cleared to return. Give him a look if you need to stream some blocks this week.

Dennis Schroder (ankle) said he's targeting a return on Friday vs. Denver.

He will miss Monday's game vs. the Heat and Thursday's game against Chicago, so he's only going to play in two games this week if this timetable holds. "I don’t want to rush it," Schroder said of his ankle. Malcolm Delaney is looking at at least two starts and has some deep-league streaming appeal.

James Johnson and Jordan Mickey will start in Miami's frontcourt again on Monday.

They'll join Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters and Josh Richardson. Mickey was basically a placeholder with Hassan Whiteside (knee) out on Saturday, but Johnson looked terrific and makes for a great DFS play. Kelly Olynyk should also get a bump in playing time as the first big off the bench.
Oct 23 - 6:56 PM

Chandler Parsons is on a minutes restriction of "about 15 minutes," according to coach David Fizdale.

Fizdale added that Parsons' minutes could increase depending upon "late game scenario[s]," but nothing about this situation is good for fantasy owners. He's playing strictly as a backup PF and there should be more appealing options on most waiver wires -- including Parsons' teammate, rookie Dillon Brooks.
Oct 23 - 6:42 PM

Tyreke Evans (left knee contusion) will play on Monday vs. Houston.

There's no word of any restrictions, so his owners can only assume that he'll see minutes in the 20s again. Through the first two games of the season, Evans is averaging 11.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.5 triples on 37.5 percent shooting.
Oct 23 - 6:39 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will draw the start on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Malcolm Brogdon is day-to-day with an ankle sprain and coach Jason Kidd isn't sure when he'll be back. The Bucks are thin at PG, so Dellavedova is looking at heavy minutes. He doesn't have great upside, but is worth streaming if you're targeting assists, steals and triples. He averaged 8.1 points, 5.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.2 triples in 27 starts last season.
Oct 23 - 6:32 PM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd called Malcolm Brogdon (ankle) day-to-day.

He confirmed that Brogdon is sitting against the Hornets on Monday and wouldn't provide a timetable for his return. The Bucks activated Gary Payton II for tonight's contest, but Matthew Dellavedova is expected to start and is the biggest beneficiary in fantasy.
Oct 23 - 6:29 PM

Ryan Anderson (lower back pain) will play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

The 3-point specialist comes in with averages of 8.7 points, 7.7 boards and 2.0 triples in three games. He's shooting just 34.8 percent from the field, partly because he's never close to the rim -- he doesn't have a single two-point attempt in the past two games. Nevertheless, he's safe to activate if you're relying on him.
Oct 23 - 6:19 PM

Malcolm Delaney and Mike Muscala will both enter the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Heat.

Coach Mike Budenhozer said it's too early to know if Dennis Schroder (ankle) or Ersan Ilyasova (knee) will be back for Thursday's game. Delaney is looking at a heavy workload tonight and is worth streaming for PG-needy owners, but we'd like him better in weekly lineups if we knew Schroder was definitely going to miss more time.
