Latest Headlines

Jarrett Allen (left foot) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

"The glimpse we've seen, I really like it," said head coach Kenny Atkinson. "Especially defensively, he could really help us - it's good news that he's back." Allen has spent the past six games on the sidelines, so he could be limited tonight, but his return to action could bump Tyler Zeller from the rotation. Allen has a lot of upside for his ability to rack up the swats, but with his playing time being limited to the teens thus far, he can only be viewed as a stash in deep leagues.

Will Barton underwent successful surgery to repair hip and core muscles on Tuesday and he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

On Monday, Barton was given a rough 5-6 week timetable, but unfortunately, it's now looking like his absence could extend beyond six weeks. He's a tough guy to hang onto in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot, but owners may want to try and sell him for next to nothing rather than cut him for a waiver wire scrub if that's the situation you're looking at. Torrey Craig should continue to start in his absence, with Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles also filling out some of the small forward minutes.

Brett Brown is debating whether to start T.J. McConnell or Markelle Fultz at point guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, with Ben Simmons (back) unavailable.

Whether he starts or not, McConnell should be good for minutes in the mid-20s with Simmons out for the night, so he might be someone to consider streaming in deep leagues for those seeking to bolster the assist category. It's worth noting that Brown didn't mention J.J. Redick when discussing the lineup change, so if McConnell does start, it sounds like Fultz will remain at the two-spot.

Ben Simmons (back) will not suit up for Tuesday's game in Detroit.

Simmons skipped shootaround and didn't practice Monday, so it's not surprising to see him taking the night off. Markelle Fultz or T.J. McConnell will start at PG with Simmons unavailable, which will likely bring J.J. Redick back into the starting lineup and Joel Embiid will see an uptick in usage. The 76ers play again on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, and for now, we'll consider Simmons doubtful for that one.
Oct 23 - 5:40 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle) will make his regular-season debut on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Dedmon will likely be limited in his first game back since suffering an avulsion fracture back in early-September, but it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like once he's fully up to speed. Alex Len was unproductive in his first two games with the Hawks, but he came through with a solid double-double on Sunday, so maybe he'll be able to hang onto the starting gig. Dedmon is just a low-end add in deep leagues if you're desperate for a big.

Jamal Murray (leg) is not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

Murray played through a left tibia contusion on Sunday, but the injury was never believed to be serious, and he is fully expected to be in the starting lineup for tonight's game. He was dreadful in his last game, missing all nine of his field goal attempts, but he should be able to bounce back tonight with a much more favorable matchup against Sacramento.
Oct 23 - 2:41 PM

Updating a previous report, James Ennis (right hamstring) is expected to miss the next 2-3 games for Houston.

With Chris Paul (suspended) also unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Michael Carter-Williams will move into the starting lineup alongside James Harden, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela. While MCW will see an uptick in minutes, we don't expect him to bring anything noteworthy to the boxscore. Mike D'Antoni said that Ennis' hamstring injury "wasn't too serious," so he should be back by next Wednesday.
Oct 23 - 2:22 PM

An MRI revealed a moderate left MCL sprain for Kris Dunn and he is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks of action.

Dunn doesn't have a history of knee issues, but he has had a tough time staying on the court over the past few years, and he could be on the longer end of this timetable considering winning games isn't necessarily a priority for the Bulls this season. Cameron Payne, Ryan Arcidiacono, Tyler Ulis and Shaquille Harrison will divvy up the PG minutes in Chicago, but none of those guys are great targets in most settings. Look for Zach LaVine to spend more time running the offense in Dunn's absence.
Oct 23 - 2:18 PM

Andrew Wiggins (thigh) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Toronto.

Wiggings left Monday's game with a right quad contusion in the first quarter and was unable to return. Afterward, he told reporters that the injury isn't serious and that he planned to play Wednesday. Wiggins has only missed one game in his entire NBA career. In addition, he is one of the best Canadian-born players in the league would love to play in front of the folks in Toronto. We should have confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Oct 23 - 1:18 PM

Michael Carter-Williams will start in place of James Ennis (hamstring) on Wednesday vs. Utah.

The Rockets are shorthanded with Ennis sidelined and Chris Paul suspended. Carter-Williams has scored just two points in 15 total minutes over Houston's two previous contests. He should see 20+ minutes on Wednesday but is still risky as even a dart-throw in DFS.
Oct 23 - 12:45 PM

Justise Winslow (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. New York.

Winslow has been dealing with a nagging hammy injury all month but is finally set to make his season debut on Wednesday. In 2017-18, Winslow averaged 7.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists and signed a three-year, $39 million extension with the Heat this offseason.
Oct 23 - 12:43 PM

Hassan Whiteside (groin) is expected to play Wednesday night vs. the Knicks.

Whiteside did not practice on Monday due to a groin issue, but we still haven't been given details on the extent of the injury. Fortunately, it appears to be minor, as Whiteside likely won't miss a single game. It's possible Miami was just limiting his reps by holding him out of Monday's practice. Whiteside has grabbed double-digit rebounds in each of the Heat's three games this season and tallied 11 points, 15 boards and two blocks across 25 minutes Saturday night. We should have confirmation on his status after Wednesday's shootaround.
