Draymond Green (sprained left ankle) and Zaza Pachulia (illness) are still listed as questionable for Wednesday's game Dallas.

Draymond Green tweaked his left ankle during Tuesday's practice, and it looks like we are headed towards a game-time decision. Wednesday's game against Dallas is the front end of a back-to-back, as the Dubs also play Thursday vs. Houston. Thus, coach Steve Kerr may choose to play it safe and hold out Green. Check back later in the day for an update. Jordan Bell would likely be inserted back into the starting lineup if either Green or Pachulia are unable to play, and would be a solid DFS target.

Joel Embiid (back tightness) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

Jan 19 - 1:51 PM

Kawhi Leonard (rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

This is surprising because Kawhi sat out Thursday's game against the Suns (which was the second night of a back-to-back) and, after Saturday, the Raptors don't play again until Tuesday. However, Toronto is clearly serious about getting Leonard as much rest as possible, and this two-game absence will give him five full days off. OG Anunoby (personal) remains sidelined, so Norman Powell and C.J. Miles will likely soak up extra minutes off the bench once again on Saturday.
Jan 19 - 1:35 PM

Andre Drummond (concussion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

Drummond took an elbow to the face from James Johnson on Friday night and was bleeding from the nose. He was unable to return, with the ailment being classified as a nasal injury. However, we now learn Drummond is dealing with a concussion, which will likely sideline him for multiple games. Zaza Pachulia and Jon Leuer (illness), who is listed as probable, will divvy minutes at center with Drummond out of action. Neither player is an attractive fantasy option. Blake Griffin could also see some time at the five if Detroit chooses to go small.

Coach Luke Walton said that he hopes to have a full practice with both LeBron James (groin) and Rajon Rondo (hand) on Sunday, but does not anticipate either of them playing Monday vs. Golden State.

It was already determined that LeBron would miss Saturday's game vs. the Rockets, but there was some optimism that he might be cleared for Monday's matchup with the Warriors. If he misses Monday's game as expected, it would be his 14th straight game on the shelf, which represents the longest extended absence of his career. We should have another update on LeBron's status after Sunday's practice.
Jan 19 - 1:21 PM

Gordon Hayward (personal) has been ruled out Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

Hayward is not with the team due to undisclosed personal reasons. Starting forwards Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris could both be asked to log a few extra minutes on Saturday night. Semi Ojeleye and Guerschon Yabusele are also likely to re-enter the rotation and see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Jan 19 - 1:10 PM

Marc Gasol (back soreness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Raptors.

Gasol struggled with his jumper in the Grizzlies loss to Boston on Friday night, shooting just 1-of-10 from the floor; however, he did grab 11 rebounds and dished out a game-high 12 assists in 35 minutes of action. If his back is acting up, Memphis may choose to rest him on the second night of a back-to-back. Joakim Noah (personal) has already been ruled out of Saturday's game, so JaMychal Green and Ivan Rabb would see all the minutes could handle if Gasol is unable to play.
Jan 19 - 12:16 PM

John Collins (illness) and Trae Young (illness) have both been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Celtics.

Collins is dealing with bronchitis-type symptoms and was initially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, as was Young. However, it appears both players are on the mend and on track to play Saturday, which means the Hawks will have both of their top scorers available.
Jan 19 - 12:01 PM

Aaron Gordon (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

Gordon said he felt his back lock up in the third quarter of Friday night's loss to the Nets. He also added the injury felt similar to the back pain he had in November when he had to miss a game. The fact that he hasn't already been ruled out is somewhat encouraging, but it seems safe to assume the Magic won't rush him out there on the second night of a back-to-back. If Gordon is ruled out, Jonathan Isaac, Wes Iwundu and Jonathon Simmons would likely divvy up extra minutes.
Jan 19 - 11:25 AM

Anthony Davis sustained a left index finger sprain on Friday night and is expected to be out approximately 1-2 weeks.

Davis hurt his finger in the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to the Blazers. He underwent an X-ray on his left hand afterward, and fortunately, it appears he did not suffer any fractures. However, AD's agent said that Davis will re-evaluate the injury in 3-to-4 days and decide whether he needs to see a hand specialist. The Pelicans play on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week, which means AD will miss at least three games. The earliest he will be able to return is next Saturday vs. the Spurs. While Davis is sidelined, Julius Randle and Nikola Mirotic will see their playing time increase and their usage rates spike.
Jan 19 - 11:03 AM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander matched his career-high of 24 points in a 112-94 loss to the Clippers, adding five assists, three rebounds, three steals and two turnovers in 43 minutes.

What a way to break through the rookie wall. Not only was he a stud offensively (7-of-17 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), SGA was also a big reason why Klay Thompson was held in check. The Clippers will be without Lou Williams (hamstring) for at least the next two games and Danilo Gallinari (back) left this game early, so SGA will be asked to do a lot more on offense -- he had a 22.2 usage rate tonight compared to his season average of 17.1. He's worth picking up with one more game this weekend and four games next week.
Jan 19 - 1:48 AM

Lou Williams (sore right hamstring) will miss at least two more games according to coach Doc Rivers.

This isn't the same hamstring he had an issue with earlier this season, but the Clippers are going to play it safe and make sure he's 100 percent before returning. He should be held in all fantasy leagues, and in the meantime Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be a popular pickup after he matched his career-high of 24 points vs. the Warriors on Friday. Based on Rivers' comments, the earliest Williams could possibly return is on Wednesday vs. the Heat.
