James Harden said his foot feels "real good" but he remains a game-time decision on Wednesday.

"I had some time to rest it and get a lot of treatment," Harden said. "It’s a lot better. The swelling has gone down a lot." With luck we'll know his status well before tipoff, allowing owners to adjust lineups accordingly on a busy night in the NBA, but these quotes at least give cause for optimism.

Dennis Schroder (left foot/ankle) will have an MRI on Monday and he's doubtful to play vs. the Heat in Miami.

Schroder "likely" has a bone bruise in his foot, according to Adam Zagoria, but he's optimistic that he'll be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls. Malcolm Delaney would likely start on Monday if Schroder is out, but he's just a streaming and DFS play until the MRI results are disclosed.

Allen Crabbe played well off the bench on Sunday, racking up 20 points, four 3-pointers, five boards, one steal, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes of floor time.

Crabbe knows that when he’s working with the second unit, his role is to come in and aggressively search for buckets, and that’s exactly what he did today, immediately spurring a 9-0 run when he entered the game. Crabbe has also been very nice on the defensive end this year, contributing 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per contest, and he looks all set up for a career-year as one of the main pieces to the rebuild in Brooklyn. Make sure he's not floating around on your waiver wire.

D'Angelo Russell notched his fourth-career double-double during Sunday's win over the Hawks, tallying 16 points, 10 assists, seven boards, one steal, one triple and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

Russell did an excellent job of getting his teammates involved early, working within the flow of the game, and locking up Dennis Schroder on the defensive end. He also hit a dagger 3-pointer with under two minutes to go to put Brooklyn up by 10, and D-Lo becoming a killer in the clutch has been a fun thing to watch this season. He’s hit the ground running, and has an excellent chance of finishing the year with top-40 value in 9-cat leagues.

John Collins posted a 14-point, 13-rebound double-double during Sunday's loss to the Nets, adding one block and two turnovers in just 21 minutes off the bench.

Collins has been playing with great energy to open the 2017-18 season, and he did a phenomenal job attacking the boards in this one with his 28.9 rebounding rate. Simply put, Collins is too good to keep off the floor, and there's a good chance he'll find himself starting for the Hawks at some point this season. He's a highly attractive stash in most leagues.

Milos Teodosic has been diagnosed with a plantar fascia injury in left foot and will be out indefinitely, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Plantar fascia injuries can be tricky to heal, and they tend to only get better with prolonged rest, so Teodosic figures to miss a good chunk of time here making him a drop-candidate in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot. Patrick Beverley, Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will see a spike in minutes with Teodosic on the sidelines, but there's not really an obvious pick up here in 12-team leagues.

Dennis Schroder rolled his left ankle during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in Brooklyn and did not return.

Schroder was in some very obvious pain, and unable to put any pressure at all on his left foot on the way back to the locker room, so he's almost assuredly looking at a multi-game absence here. He struggled mightily to find his shot in Sunday's matinee, finishing with 17 points on 5-of-22 shooting (7-of-7 from the stripe), eight assists, four boards, two steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes. If he does need to miss time, Malcolm Delaney will likely be logging heavy minutes as a starter, and he's on the radar as a potential speculative add in deep leagues.

The Suns have reportedly fired head coach Earl Watson.

The Suns have gotten off to a dreadful start this season, with two 40-plus point losses in three games, and someone had to take the blame for those horrible losses. In the meantime, associate head coach Jay Triano should step up as the interim head coach, and it would make sense to see guys like Marquese Chriss and Alex Len to become a larger part of the rotation, putting both those guys on the radar as a speculative add in 12-team formats.

Eric Bledsoe tweeted on Sunday afternoon, "I don't wanna be here."

The Suns opened up the 2016-17 season with three horrendous blowouts, and Bledsoe obviously has not been thrilled with the early results. The 27-year-old guard doesn't make much sense on the rebuilding Suns' team, but him seemingly publicly requesting a trade on Twitter isn't exactly the best way to handle things. Suns owner Robert Sarver is reportedly going to meet with head coach Earl Watson today, and Bledsoe will assuredly be a part of that conversation. Bledsoe isn't in a great spot for fantasy value in Phoenix, so a trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing here.
Oct 22 - 5:21 PM

Kawhi Leonard (quad) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors.

The Spurs apparently aren't going to provide a timetable for Leonard, but based on a video that went viral on Friday showing him struggling to walk up stairs, we'd speculate that he's not all that close. Rudy Gay and Kyle Anderson will continue to pick up the small forward minutes in his absence, with Gay being the more attractive target in fantasy hoops.
Oct 22 - 5:13 PM

An MRI revealed a sprained left ankle for Jonas Valanciunas and he is being listed as day-to-day.

Valanciunas will be traveling with the team for their upcoming six-game road trip, but he'll miss Monday's game in San Antonio. With JV on the sidelines, Lucas Nogueira could enter the starting five, and he might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues for those seeking a shot-blocking specialist. Serge Ibaka should be able to get closer to 30 minutes a night while Valanciunas is out.
Oct 22 - 5:04 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is expected to start in his regular-season debut on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

KCP has served his two-game suspension, so he should be starting the rest of the way, which will result in Corey Brewer heading back to the bench. There also might not be quite as many minutes available for Jordan Clarkson, and Lonzo Ball could see a minor dip in usage. Feel free to get Caldwell-Pope active.
