Brandon Knight will miss Friday's game against Boston with a hamstring injury.

Knight left Wednesday's game with a right hamstring injury and has been ruled out for Friday's action against the Celtics. Luke Ridnour would stand to pick up some of Knight's minutes, but he's doubtful for Friday with a back injury. In the meantime, Nate Wolters and Gary Neal should see an increase in minutes and make for interesting low-cost options for fantasy owners playing on FanDuel.

DeMarcus Cousins (stomach illness) is questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

This is not the same thing as his viral meningitis, so there is a chance he could miss this one. Cousins doesn't usually miss games when it's up to him and he actually refused a minutes limit in his first game back this month. Still, his fantasy owners will have to check back. Ryan Hollins is out, so Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson are a little safer for owners in very deep leagues.

Jarrett Jack scored a season-high 27 points against the Celtics on Friday with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He made all 10 attempts from the line and hit a clutch 15-foot jumper to help the Nets get the win. Deron Williams was active for this one and the Nets are going to ease him back in hopes he doesn't aggravate his calf issue. Jack has seen his minutes climb to 35 per game over his last four and the Nets are reportedly looking to deal Deron, so Jack is worth a look in standard leagues. He's more of a stash, though.

Nicolas Batum (wrist) and LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) are questionable to play against the 76ers on Friday.

Considering the matchup and how much Batum has struggled with his shot, he's probably a little closer to doubtful tonight. He did not play on Tuesday and it was mostly Allen Crabbe getting some extra run. Coach Terry Stotts plays the matchups a lot, so Crabbe is still an extremely risky play.

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

He's been out since Sunday, so this is a bit strange and hopefully he's OK. While he is out, JaKarr Sampson, K.J. McDaniels and Tony Wroten will get more run at shooting guard. Jerami Grant may also play a bit more, but is not a great fantasy option. Thompson is not worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 26 - 2:26 PM

Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play Friday vs. OKC or Saturday vs. Orlando, but is hopeful for Monday's game vs. Milwaukee.

"I think we had a good idea he’d be out longer – it’s a tough [injury] day-to-day; where it is makes it hard to know," coach Steve Clifford said. "[Monday] at the very earliest. He hasn’t been able to do anything. He’s just getting to the point where he can even shoot." Gary Neal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Gerald Henderson will see an uptick in value with Stephenson sidelined.
Dec 26 - 1:43 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Parker didn't look good on Christmas, and this is the second game of a back-to-back set, so that probably has something to do with his absence. Cory Joseph will slide into the starting lineup, and he'll make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

Kawhi Leonard (hand) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Danny Green, Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli, and Kyle Anderson will all see extended minutes with Leonard sidelined, with Green offering the most upside out of the group. Coach Gregg Popovich said that Leonard's return will be based on his ability to tolerate the pain, and he remains without an official return date.
Dec 26 - 1:28 PM

Josh Smith has officially signed with Houston, and he's set to make his Rockets debut Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

Smith will likely start which will send Donatas Motiejunas to the bench. However, the Rockets were forced to cut Tarik Black in order to make room for Smith on the roster, so Motiejunas could see some time as Howard's primary backup with Terrence Jones (leg) still on the shelf. Owners of Motiejunas should see how he performs tonight before making the cut.

John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Larry Sanders (flu) and Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) have already been ruled out for this one, so the Bucks could really use Henson back in the lineup. However, he's been out since Nov. 25, so his conditioning probably isn't quite there yet. Check back for an official update on Henson's status closer to tip-off, but know that he'll be a risky option in daily leagues despite the opportunity.

Larry Sanders (flu) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) also unavailable, Zaza Pachulia and Johnny O'Bryant are going to get all the minutes they can handle (which for O'Bryant isn't much). John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable, and the Bucks could certainly use him. Pachulia will make for the best play in daily leagues, but he's not a lock for production.
Dec 26 - 12:53 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

This concussion is coming out of nowhere, and Ilyasova just can't seem to stay healthy. A concussion cost him 21 games last year, so there's some cause for concern with this news. The Bucks frontcourt has been decimated by injuries this season, and they'll have to lean heavily upon Zaza Pachulia and Johnny O'Bryant with current starter Larry Sanders (illness) also not expected to play Friday. John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable, so if he could also be forced into minutes tonight.
