Gerald Green got a start in place of Eric Bledsoe (shin) and blew up for a season-high 23 points, three boards, four assists, a steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

Up until now we have only been pimping Green when he is slated to start, but you have to think Jeff Hornacek has taken notice of what Green is doing when he gets minutes. He's playing with confidence and can also play small forward, and even if he abruptly goes back to the bench once Bledsoe is back, he might be worth stashing in case he turns into a solid sixth-man candidate for the Suns. Especially when you consider that starting SF P.J. Tucker has scored more than nine points just one time in his last eight games. And any time you hear that Bledsoe or Goran Dragic will miss time, Green becomes an automatic start, even if he doesn't steal Tucker's job.

Andre Iguodala (calf) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Houston.

Iguodala has been battling a myriad of nagging injuries this season. This will be the second straight games he has missed due to the calf issue and the seventh contest he has been sidelined for in 2017-18. Omri Casspi and Nick Young will likely soak up additional minutes on Saturday, but neither are reliable streaming or DFS options.

Mario Chalmers (shoulder), Andrew Harrison (shoulder) and Ben McLemore (knee soreness) are listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. New Orleans.

McLemore shockingly erupted for 21 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples in 27 minutes on Friday but apparently is now dealing with soreness in his knee. With Chandler Parsons (illness, knee) and James Ennis III (calf) already ruled out, the Grizz may be very shorthanded on Saturday. Tyreke Evans, Wayne Selden and Dillon Brooks will likely log all the minutes they can handle.

Kyrie Irving (sore left shoulder) practiced on Saturday and coach Brad Stevens said he "looked good."

Irving scored 27 points in 41 minutes on Tuesday but was unable to play Wednesday. Fortunately, an MRI on the shoulder came back clean on Thursday and Stevens told reporters he didn't believe the injury would be a "long-term issue." We should have an update on Irving's status for Boston's Sunday matinee vs. Orlando shortly. With Irving sidelined on Wednesday, Marcus Smart drew the start and Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin saw an uptick in minutes off the bench.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will replace Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) in the Sixers starting lineup on Saturday vs. Milwaukee.

It is somewhat surprising that Sixers are starting TLC instead of T.J. McConnell. It likely has to do with the defensive assignment of guarding Milwaukee's Eric Bledsoe. However, both Luwawu-Cabarrot and McConnell will be asked to log heavy minutes, as Philly is without Bayless, J.J. Redick (leg), and Markelle Fultz (shoulder). Luwawu-Cabarrot has started one game previously this season. He finished with four points, one rebound and one assist over 23 minutes in that start.

Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Bayless missed six games back in November due to pain in this same wrist. Hopefully, the injury won't linger as long this time around. The Sixers are also missing J.J. Redick (left leg), so Philly's backcourt will have very little depth on Saturday. It sounds like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has been tabbed to slide into the starting lineup to replace Bayless. However, T.J. McConnell is arguably the more attractive streamer and DFS target on Saturday, as he'll log plenty of minutes off the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd said that Sterling Brown and Tony Snell will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Malcolm Brogdon (personal) Saturday vs. the Sixers.

Snell has started 29 games for the Bucks this season. He's averaged 7.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.6 minutes over those 29 starts. Brogdon is attending to a personal family matter. The Bucks announced on Saturday that Antetokounmpo will miss Milwaukee's next two games to manage soreness in his right knee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will miss Milwaukee's next two games to "manage soreness in his right knee."

The Bucks released a statement Saturday morning which explained: "By not playing in Saturday’s game at Philadelphia and Monday’s home game vs. Phoenix, Antetokounmpo will have eight days without playing in a game, using that time to receive treatment." Giannis has previously missed two games this season due to the same issue. He plans to return to game action on next Friday (Jan. 26) vs. Brooklyn. Tony Snell will likely be re-inserted into the starting lineup, but the primary beneficiaries of Antetokounmpo's absence will be Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe.

Tim Hardaway Jr. lit up the Jazz during a 117-115 win on Friday, making 11-of-17 from the field for 31 points with five rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in just 27 minutes.

Yeah, he got a big contract this summer, but Hardaway Jr. has performed while healthy. THJ did miss two clutch free throws with 33 seconds left in the fourth, but did ice the game with two free throw makes with nine second left. The Knicks will get another back-to-back set on Jan. 25-26 and another on the 30th and 31st, so his owners will have to make sure he's good for those. He needs to be owned in all leagues regardless.

Jordan Clarkson finished with a season-high 33 points, seven assists and seven rebounds in Friday's 99-86 win against the Pacers.

Clarkson finished 14-of-19 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. It Clarkson's fifth-career 30-point game, and his first of the season. The Lakers needed every bit of it, as they had a dismal 2-of-14 night from the free-throw stripe. It was the worst percentage from the stripe by a winning NBA team since 1963. Five players took at least one free throw without a make, and only Clarkson was 2-of-3 to hit.

Rudy Gobert (knee) turned in a gem during his return to the lineup on Friday, scoring a season-high 23 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 30 minutes during a 117-115 loss to the Knicks.

He was expected to play around 24 minutes, but this game was close in a game the Jazz really needed before a road trip that starts on Monday. Gobert started slow and did only make 9-of-15 from the line, but he showed some rapport with Donovan Mitchell. He has been a major letdown so far this season, so hopefully he can hang more lines like this one. His owners may want to make sure he's a go for Saturday in a back-to-back set against the Clippers.
Jan 20 - 1:35 AM

Rodney Hood made a start against the Knicks on Friday, scoring 18 points with five rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

His move to the starting lineup wasn't the biggest news on Hood for the night. Marc Stein of the New York Times reported that "there is a growing belief in league personnel circles" that the Jazz could trade Hood before the deadline. He seems to be fairly comfortable with the Jazz no matter where his playing time comes from, so his owners should want him to stay put. Although, he did have a minor leg issue late in the game, so keep an eye out on that for the oft-injured wing.
