Latest Headlines

Carmelo Anthony (back) was limited to non-contact work during Tuesday's practice.

He's going to be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out again, Jerami Grant will be in line for another start and both Russell Westbrook and Paul George will see an uptick in usage.

Aron Baynes (right hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Magic.

Baynes could be looking at more than a few games on the sidelines with the hammy issue, and Daniel Theis figures to benefit most here while Robert Williams might be able to work his way into the rotation. None of these guys have any fantasy value, though.

Dennis Schroder will come off the bench for Sunday's game against Sacramento.

Russell Westbrook (knee) will be making his regular-season debut tonight, and he won't have any minutes restrictions, so Schroder's value figures to take a massive hit. Owners should wait and see what Schroder's minutes look like tonight, but he could start trending towards cut-candidate territory.
Oct 21 - 5:31 PM

Kyle Anderson (illness) is listed as questionable vs. the Jazz on Monday.

Anderson's fantasy stock has been diminished by heel soreness during the preseason and the Grizzlies' willingness to start Chandler Parsons ahead of him at SF. This illness will add another layer of frustration for owners, but even if he sits out we're not ready to cut bait after just a handful of games.
Oct 21 - 5:30 PM

Marc Gasol (back soreness) is probable for Monday's game vs. Utah.

Gasol was questionable for Friday's game but he still logged 29 minutes, so the 'probable' tag is encouraging. His presence on the injury report this early in the season obviously isn't, but at least back injuries haven't been a theme in his career (unlike Dwight Howard, for instance). Owners should check for confirmation of his status after Monday's shootaround.
Oct 21 - 5:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Russell Westbrook (knee) will play Sunday against the Kings and will not have a minutes limit.

With Westbrook back in action tonight, Dennis Schroder will likely see a reduction in minutes, and his usage rate will plummet. With no minutes restrictions for Russ, he's obviously safe to fire up everywhere, and he could be in for a huge night going up against Sacramento's lackluster defense. Joining Westbrook in the starting five will be Terrance Ferguson, Paul George, Patrick Patterson and Steven Adams.
Oct 21 - 5:23 PM

Larry Nance (ankle) will play on Sunday against the Hawks.

Nance will be coming off the bench in his regular-season debut, and will have a minutes limit today, so he's not a very attractive target in daily leagues. However, he could turn in a nice season once he's fully up to speed, so he's on the radar as a speculative add in deep leagues. His return to the court will hurt Tristan Thompson's value.
Oct 21 - 4:34 PM

Luke Walton said that Lonzo Ball "looked great" at Sunday's practice and implied that Ball may no longer have a minutes limit moving forward.

Ball saw just 19 minutes off the bench in his regular-season debut, but his minutes jumped to the mid-20s on Saturday and he could see that number trend to the 30s over the next week, particularly with Rajon Rondo likely looking at a multi-game suspension for his participation in Saturday night's altercation with Chris Paul. Walton still needs to consult with the medical staff regarding the minutes limit, but Ball is trending up and could retain a starting spot even upon Rondo's return.
Oct 21 - 3:50 PM

Domantas Sabonis (knee) and T.J. Leaf (ankle) are questionable for Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves.

Both Sabonis and Leaf did not play on Saturday, but we'll have a better idea on their status following Monday morning's shootaround. If they're out again, Myles Turner should see an uptick in minutes, as will Kyle O'Quinn. Check back for another update tomorrow morning.
Oct 21 - 3:35 PM

Kevin Knox (sprained left ankle) underwent an MRI on his injured ankle, which confirmed the sprain, and he will be re-evaluated in one week.

Knox will miss at least the Knicks next three games and likely more. Shams Charania of The Athletic reported last night that Knox would miss 2-4 weeks and this doesn't go against that. He's set to miss time, which elevates Noah Vonleh and Allonzo Trier in the rotation. Mitchell Robinson might also see more time.
Oct 21 - 2:43 PM

Larry Nance (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

Nance did not appear in either of the first two games for the Cavs and might miss his third straight on Sunday. Sam Dekker, Ante Zizic, and even Kevin Love will see an uptick in minutes if Nance were to miss again. We should know more soon.

Will Barton (right hip) is listed as out in the game notes for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

Barton injured his hip in Saturday's game and we have yet to here of the severity of the injury. Trey Lyles, Juan Hernangomez, Torrey Craig, and maybe Malik Beasley all have a chance to gain time in Barton's absence. Keep those fingers crossed for some good news.
