Shaun Livingston nearly triple-doubled in a laugher win over the hapless Sixers on Monday, scoring 17 points on 7-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds, eight assists and two steals in just 23 minutes.

The scary part? The Sixers had three of their starters in the game at most times tonight. Owners can safely ignore any line from this game, including the ones posted by Mirza Teletovic (21 points, seven rebounds, five assists, five triples) and Chris Johnson (21 points, five rebounds, five triples). That said, if Deron Williams (ankle) cannot go for Week 1 then Livingston will be worth a short-term pickup.

Terrence Ross scored 21 points with one rebound, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

With DeMar DeRozan (ankle) out, Ross played 30 minutes and closed the fourth quarter over DeMarre Carroll (15 minutes). He hit 6-of-10 shots from the field and 6-of-8 from the line, and the Raptors are going to need his offense again on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies with DeRozan set to miss at least one more game. If you need a short-term boost, both Ross and Norman Powell (16 points) deserve a look.

Kyle Lowry scored 30 points on 9-of-23 shooting (11-of-12 FTs) in a 108-106 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.

The Raptors have now lost four straight games for the first time since March of 2015. DeMar DeRozan (ankle) sat out of this one and Lowry's usage rate rises from 23.3 to 27.2 when DeRozan is off the court, so he was busy tonight with five rebounds, two assists, one block and one triple in 42 minutes. The Raptors play again on Wednesday in Memphis, so fatigue could be a factor in that one. As long he's not rested, Lowry will still be a strong play against a stingy defense.
Jan 24 - 9:42 PM

Jaylen Brown started the second half of Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards in place of Amir Johnson.

Coach Brad Stevens usually turns to Kelly Olynyk or Jonas Jerebko when he's looking for a spark at halftime, but Brown is getting a chance at PF this time as the Celtics will roll with a small-ball lineup. Brown's minutes have been all over the place and this is likely a temporary switch, so he's not a pickup in standard leagues yet.
Jan 24 - 8:24 PM

Jeff Green (ankle) will return to Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

He landed on Dwyane Wade's foot and appeared to sprain his left ankle. He walked back to the locker room under his own power, but quickly returned to the bench and is good to go for the second half.
Jan 24 - 8:00 PM

Gary Harris (ankle) will play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

Harris was a stud on Sunday when he scored a team-high 22 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes. He was listed as probable on the injury report, so his status wasn't really in doubt. Get him active.
Jan 24 - 7:50 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (back) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz and Jameer Nelson will get the start.

Mudiay was "very doubtful" to play before this report, so he could miss additional time. While Nelson is getting the start, he was very underwhelming on Sunday and was outplayed by Jamal Murray off the bench. For now, expect both players to split the PG minutes in Mudiay's absence.
Jan 24 - 7:23 PM

Andrew Bogut (right hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Bogut has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but he's expected to return to action sometime this week. We should get another update on Bogut following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he is able to give it a go, he'll siphon away some minutes from Salah Mejri.
Jan 24 - 7:15 PM

Wesley Matthews (right hip strain) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Rick Carlisle said on Sunday that he was expected Matthews to be good to go for Wednesday's game, but perhaps that statement was a bit overly optimistic. We should have a better idea on his playing status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, Dorian Finney-Smith could earn the start with Justin Anderson logging extended minutes with the second unit. Stay tuned.
Jan 24 - 7:12 PM

Jahlil Okafor (knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

There it is. Okafor was downgraded from probable to questionable earlier in the day, but he's now officially out. The 76ers are calling it right knee soreness, and it's worth noting that it's the same knee that he had surgery on last season. The 76ers will proceed with caution, but we'll consider Okafor questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks for now. Nerlens Noel will draw the start Tuesday, but expect to see a lot of Ersan Ilyasova and Dario Saric as well.
Jan 24 - 7:09 PM

Raymond Felton will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Blake Griffin (knee) is back in the starting lineup after an extended absence, while Austin Rivers will slide to PG. Felton is still looking at a solid workload for several weeks, so sticking with him if you need assists and steals is the right call. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Jan 24 - 7:06 PM

David Lee will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, sending Dewayne Dedmon back to the bench.

The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard (hand), Tony Parker (foot) and Pau Gasol (hand) tonight, so it makes sense to bring Lee back into the starting five to help infuse some offense into the first unit. Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Lee in the starting five for tonight's game.
