Latest Headlines

Danny Green (groin), Kawhi Leonard (rest) and Tony Parker (rest) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers.

While Leonard and Parker are simply receiving rest days as they work themselves back into things, Green is dealing with an actual injury and Gregg Popovich hinted after Tuesday's game that he could be "shut down for a while." With all these guys unavailable on Wednesday, Kyle Anderson, Bradon Paul and Bryn Forbes will all have the opportunity for some extended run. Green hasn't played well enough this season to warrant a hold through this injury.

Kevin Huerter (neck) will not play Wednesday against the Bulls.

He was doubtful for this game and will miss his second straight outing. Huerter was starting to blossom as a starting wing, and perhaps his strong play is why the Hawks reportedly want to trade Taurean Prince or Kent Bazemore. Huerter should still be held in standard leagues while Prince and DeAndre Bembry benefit as solid owns in standard leagues.

E'Twaun Moore will be on a minutes limit for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Alvin Gentry said that Moore has been playing hurt, and while he'll be available for tonight's game, there's a decent chance he'll skip Thursday's matchup with the Thunder. Moore has been woefully inconsistent this season, so it's tough to view him as anything more than a low-end, 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Corey Brewer will start again on Wednesday in place of Jimmy Butler (right wrist).

Butler's wrist sprain was deemed 'mild' and the hope was that some rest would prevent him from missing extended time. Brewer played very well on Monday, getting into James Harden defensively and finishing with 11 points, three boards, two steals and two blocks, so we'd expect him to once again play 30+ minutes. Stream away.

Ben Simmons (upper respiratory infection) is good to go for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Simmons skipped Tuesday's practice with the illness, but he'll be out there tonight and should see a nice uptick in usage with Jimmy Butler (wrist) unavailable. Go ahead and get him active.
Jan 23 - 6:25 PM

Kenneth Faried is starting for Nene (rest) against the Knicks on Wednesday.

The Manimal looked pretty good on Monday with 13 points, six boards and 23 minutes. Teams are going to trap James Harden whenever they can, so Faried should get a lot of free rim runs. His encouraging start on Monday makes him worth a look for anyone needing a center with strong FG%, boards, some points, and maybe a handful of boards.
Jan 23 - 6:06 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore lower back) will start vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

Gordon missed two games with the injury and his return should bump Jonathon Isaac to a bench role. It also takes some offensive burden off Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier, the latter of whom has been warming up lately.
Jan 23 - 6:02 PM

Terry Rozier and Aron Baynes will enter the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

Kyrie Irving (flu) and Al Horford (rest) are off tonight, so this was the expected move by Brad Stevens. Joining Rozier and Baynes in the starting five will be Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris, and Rozier is looking like a solid DFS target with a very favorable matchup against Cleveland.
Jan 23 - 5:48 PM

James Johnson (illness) is questionable vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

He wasn't on the injury report earlier today, and he is dealing with a migraine today. We should know more shortly if he will remain in the starting lineup. If he can't go, coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation will be a little tighter with Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr. likely to see most of the run there. DJJ playing the four will also help out all the wings, too.

Joel Embiid (back) and Ben Simmons (illness) are questionable against the Spurs on Wednesday.

Embiid was originally not listed in the injury report, which was a surprise after the 76ers had him as a true game-time call in the previous two. He is likely going to be in the injury report for the foreseeable future, but he won't have a back-to-back set until the last two games before the All-Star break. If he's out, Mike Muscala, Jonah Bolden, and Amir Johnson would get some minutes.

Anthony Davis is dealing with a volar plate avulsion fracture on his left index finger and he will be re-evaluated on Friday.

Davis won't play on Wednesday or Thursday, and he should be considered doubtful for Saturday's game against San Antonio, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll be back out there for either Tuesday's game in Houston or next Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets. AD's consultation with the hand specialist went well, and it appears that his return to play will primarily be a pain-tolerance issue. Jahlil Okafor should continue to start while he's out, and guys like Jrue Holiday, Nikola Mirotic and Julius Randle will see an uptick in usage.
Jan 23 - 5:40 PM

Jimmy Butler (wrist) will not play Wednesday against the Spurs.

He missed Monday, but Butler was able to do some stuff in practice on Tuesday. It doesn't sound like he'll be out for long, and there's no word of the team evaluating him further -- this is the 76ers, though. Corey Brewer will likely stick in the starting lineup after a successful run in 33 minutes, scoring 11 points on Monday. T.J. McConnell, Landry Shamet and Furkan Korkmaz could also get more run, especially if Ben Simmons can't play.
