Phil Jackson is hopeful that Derek Fisher's championship experience can help keep Carmelo Anthony in New York.

Speaking at Derek Fisher's introductory press conference, Phil Jackson joked about how he might use his new head coach as part of the process to keep Carmelo Anthony in town, "I think I'll have Derek wear all 5 of his rings the first time he comes in and talks to Carmelo and say 'this is what we're working for'." Melo is expected to opt out of the last year of his contract this summer, but the addition of Fisher and his championship pedigree could help keep the Knicks' superstar in Madison Square Garden. This situation should resolve itself over the next month, but Fisher and Jackson's rebuilding process could get a lot tougher if Anthony decides to bolt for greener pastures.

Alvin Gentry doesn't anticipate Anthony Davis (quad) being able to play Monday vs. Cleveland.

Gentry hasn't yet officially ruled him out, calling AD a game-time call, but he acknowledged that he doesn't expect Davis to take the court tonight. If Davis is forced to the sidelines, Terrence Jones would move into the starting lineup, and he'd make for an intriguing DFS play. Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday will also shoulder the offensive burden if Davis is out. Stay tuned.

Kawhi Leonard (hand, Nets) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

He's resting for "precautionary" reasons against the worst team in the NBA, so Leonard's owners can expect to have him back for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors. With Leonard out, expect to see a lot of Jonathon Simmons and Kyle Anderson at the three.

Miles Plumlee is starting in place of John Henson on Monday vs. the Rockets.

You just have to laugh at this point as coach Jason Kidd is up to his old tricks. The Bucks have lost five games in a row, but moving Plumlee back into the first unit over Henson and Greg Monroe is a crime. The $52 million Plumlee is averaging 2.3 points and 1.4 rebounds this season and is not a fantasy pickup.
Jan 23 - 6:25 PM

Jabari Parker and Matthew Dellavedova will start Monday vs. the Rockets.

Parker is back in the starting lineup after coming off the bench on Saturday for disciplinary reasons, which will send Thon Maker back to the bench, and Dellavedova will hold onto his starting spot over the impressive rookie Malcolm Brogdon. Miles Plumlee will also move into the starting lineup, which will send John Henson back to the bench. Jason Kidd hasn't been fiddling with his rotations as much this season, so we were do for this sort of unorthodox move. Parker is obviously a must-start.
Jan 23 - 6:25 PM

Bradley Beal (sore left foot) will start on Monday vs. the Hornets.

He popped up on the injury report less than an hour ago after taking a hard fall in Saturday's game vs. the Pistons. However, Beal made it through warmups just fine and there's no word of any limitations. DFS owners should tread carefully, but season-long owners can fire him up in all lineups.
Jan 23 - 6:20 PM

Raymond Felton will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Hawks.

According to Dan Woike of the OC Register, Marreese Speights will come off the bench tonight, which suggests the Clippers will go with their small ball lineup of Felton, Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Luc Mbah a Moute and DeAndre Jordan. Through seven starts this season, Felton owns averages of 10.3 points, 5.0 boards, 5.0 dimes, 1.9 steals and 1.9 turnovers per game, so he's on the radar in DFS.
Jan 23 - 6:14 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) will "most likely" play on Tuesday vs. the 76ers according to coach Doc Rivers.

In case you missed it, Griffin has already been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Hawks. Griffin is feeling great and Rivers said a couple weeks ago that he doesn't want the All-Star PF to be limited upon his return, so he could hit the ground running. If he plays on Tuesday, that means he should also be good for Saturday's showdown vs. the Warriors. Luc Mbah a Moute, Austin Rivers, Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass will all take a hit with this report.
Jan 23 - 6:12 PM

Randy Foye will start against the Spurs on Monday.

Brian Lewis of the New York Post is reporting that Foye will start at PG, so that will shift Spencer Dinwiddie to to the bench. The Nets announced on Monday that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will miss the next 3-5 weeks, but Foye still can't be trusted in standard leagues right now.
Jan 23 - 6:09 PM

Caris LeVert will be rested for Monday's game against the Spurs.

Head coach Kenny Atkinson is taking rest days to a new level, sometimes allowing his guys to play in back-to-back sets but then forcing them to the sidelines due to the amount of games played during a seemingly random span of days. The Nets do have four games coming up this week, so that's likely Atkinson's justification here. With LeVert out, there will be more opportunity for guys like Bojan Bogdanovic and Sean Kilpatrick. Expect LeVert to play Wednesday against the Heat.
Jan 23 - 6:04 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) is on track to play Monday vs. the Kings.

Stan Van Gundy gave him the probable tag, and he looked fine while going through his pregame routine (video below), so owners can go ahead and plan on having him active for tonight's game against the Kings. Reggie Bullock will head back to the bench with KCP active, and Stanely Johnson will lose some minutes. Check back for an official update closer to tip-off.
Jan 23 - 5:33 PM

Gary Harris (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are probable to play Tuesday vs. Utah.

Harris looked fantastic in his return from a three-game absence on Sunday, and the probable tag in Denver means he'll play. Arthur hasn't looked any worse for the wear in his previous two outings, but he doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues. Harris was supposed to have a minutes restriction on Sunday, but ended up logging 35 minutes, which suggests the ankle issue is completely behind him. Make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire.
