Nikola Mirotic (illness) practiced on Friday and is expected to play Saturday against the Pistons.

Mirotic has missed each of the last two games due to a stomach bug but is on track to return to the lineup Saturday night. Mirotic has cooled off slightly since his red-hot start, but is still averaging 17.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.8 3-pointers per game this season. With Mirotic back in the mix, Lauri Markkanen and Bobby Portis will see their playing time reduced a bit.

Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

The Mavericks do play three more times this week after Tuesday, but a doubtful tag the day before a game is never a good sign. J.J. Barea (ankle) is questionable, so Jalen Brunson could have some sneaky low-end value this week and just scored 12 points with four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes in his last outing.

Ersan Ilyasova has been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Pistons with a nose contusion.

This comes out of nowhere and we're learning about this via the official NBA injury report. Ilyasova is not worth owning in most leagues anyways. With Ersan out, it's possible the Bucks give Thon Maker a few minutes at the four, but Jason Smith is also an option.

Mitchell Robinson (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game vs. the Suns.

He was scheduled to be re-evaluated on Monday, but he said his ankle is still bothering him and he had a walking boot on Sunday. Luke Kornet will take Robinson's minutes behind Enes Kanter tonight, but isn't a reliable fantasy option on an 8-game slate with workloads of 8, 24 and 9 minutes in his last three outings.
Dec 17 - 1:50 PM

Khris Middleton (right pinkie) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) are both available for Monday's game vs. the Pistons.

They were listed as probable on the previous injury report after missing Friday's game, so no surprises here. Middleton will look to break out of his brutal slump tonight, while Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton will head back to the bench and irrelevancy.
Dec 17 - 1:45 PM

Jabari Parker (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Thunder.

This really doesn't even matter since Parker is out of the rotation. It's no secret that the Bulls are shopping the forward and the most recent report comes from Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer who said the Jazz are interested. His days as a Bull are numbered.
Dec 17 - 12:57 PM

Jeff Teague is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings with left ankle inflammation.

He's been slumping lately with 8.0 points on 30% shooting over his last five, but has kept his value afloat with 11.6 dimes in that span. Teague has a long history of ankle issues, but it sounds like this will be a day-to-day thing. Derrick Rose has scored 20+ points in three straight games and would likely draw the start if Teague can't go with Tyus Jones pickup up a handful of minutes.

Kelly Oubre (trade) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks, but will join the Suns in time for Wednesday's game vs. Boston.

The trade is official, but the debuts of Oubre and Austin Rivers will have to wait. The Suns are deep on the wings with Devin Booker, Mikal Bridges, Josh Jackson, and T.J. Warren, but the Suns can always use smaller fours or deploy Booker at PG for stretches. Oubre is a hold in standard leagues while we see how this plays out.

Khris Middleton (right pinkie) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) are both listed as probable for Monday's game vs. Detroit.

Both players missed Friday's game with minor injuries, but having Saturday and Sunday off obviously helped. Middleton has been in an awful slump in December, hitting 27.9% of his shots from the field. Maybe the finger injury is the reason, but owners in season-long leagues have no choice but to deploy him and hope that he finds his rhythm again because he's a top-25 fantasy talent when he's rolling. Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton will head back to the bench if both Middleton and Brogdon are cleared.

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Jazz are interested in acquiring Jabari Parker.

O'Connor notes that the Jazz are desperate for offense, as they are currently ranked 23rd in offensive rating. Defense is Parker's biggest weakness, but perhaps playing next to Rudy Gobert would make it less obvious. It would be a low-risk move for the Jazz since Parker's contract isn't guaranteed for 2019-20, and this would be a way for the Jazz to dump Derrick Favors who also has a non-guaranteed contract for next season -- he isn't eligible to traded until January 15th, though.

Delon Wright scored a season-high 15 points as a fill-in starter on Sunday, making 6-of-12 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 38 minutes.

Kyle Lowry (bruised left thigh) and Fred VanVleet (back) were both sidelined tonight, so Wright got the start and made the most of his opportunity. The Raptors' next game is at home on Wednesday but Wright isn't a great hold since Lowry and VanVleet are both day-to-day. Just keep this performance in mind if those guys do miss more games.
Dec 16 - 11:07 PM

Luka Doncic finished Sunday's home loss with 28 points, nine assists, six rebounds and one steal, making 9-of-15 field goals and 9-of-14 free throws.

Prior to the game, Kings coach Dave Joerger said to reporters, "Perhaps there was an idea that there was a ceiling on [Doncic]. I don't see it, unfortunately for us." Sacramento drafted Marvin Bagley III one spot ahead of Doncic this summer, of course, but this sounds like more of a shot at the Kings' front office than a knock on Bagley (who was out tonight with a knee injury). In any case, the entire league is well aware that Doncic is a star in the making -- and if he can reduce his turnovers (3.5) and improve his efficiency (42.8% field goals), the sky is the limit for fantasy value.
