Latest Headlines

Josh Jackson (groin) said he doesn't think he'll be able to take the court for Friday's game against the Rockets.

Jackson's injury was initially reported as a hip issue, but apparently, he's dealing with a groin injury, which is something that can be tricky to recover from as there's a high risk of suffering a setback if brought back too soon. It sounds like he'll be joining Marquese Chriss (hip) on the sidelines tonight, which will translate to more minutes for Jared Dudley and perhaps Daniel House will be able to get into the rotation.
Jan 12 - 2:13 PM

Robert Covington (right knee) is available to play Saturday vs. the Suns.

While Covington did play 31 minutes in the Timberwolves' most recent game he didn't look to be at full strength, which cast some doubt on his availability for Saturday's game. How much he'll be able to play and how effective he'll be remains to be seen. Minnesota is already down a forward, as Taj Gibson (personal) has been ruled out.
Dec 15 - 8:05 PM

Dario Saric will start in place Taj Gibson (personal) on Saturday against the Suns.

Saric will make his first start with the Wolves with Gibson away from the team. Lineups with Saric have fared well since the trade and, while he's unlikely to stick in the starting unit, a good performance could help strengthen his case. He's worth the stream and DFS play on Saturday.
Dec 15 - 7:55 PM

Mike Conley (sore left hamstring) will play Saturday against the Rockets.

Conley has been playing through his hammy injury and hasn't been hampered much, if at all. The fact that he's playing on the second night of a back-to-back is a great sign going forward.
Dec 15 - 7:27 PM

Luke Kennard will remain in the starting lineup for Saturday's game vs. Boston, joining Reggie Jackson, Reggie Bullock, Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

With Bullock (ankle) back, it's Kennard who will remain with the starters while rookie Bruce Brown returns to the bench. The Duke product put forth the best performance of his career to date in the Pistons' December 10 loss to the 76ers, scoring 28 points (11-of-18 FG, 1-of-2 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers. Kennard followed that up with a six-point, four-rebound effort Wednesday, so he still has some work to do from a consistency standpoint.
Dec 15 - 6:56 PM

JaVale McGee (illness) is currently going through his pregame routine and appears to be on track to play on Saturday in Charlotte.

Things aren't official just yet, but per Lakers' beat reporter Mike Trudell, McGee looks "ready to play." Season-long owners can probably go ahead and get him active, but the illness makes him a questionable DFS play.
Dec 15 - 6:51 PM

Damyean Dotson (sore right shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

Dotson missed Friday's game, which was his first missed game of the season. Trey Burke (knee) is slated to return and would pick up some time if Dotson were to sit, while Frank Ntilikina and Courtney Lee would see more action, as well. If Dotson can go, there will be some time available with Allonzo Trier (hamstring) out.
Dec 15 - 6:38 PM

Eric Gordon (sore left knee) will play Saturday against the Grizzlies.

Gordon was questionable, but is good to go for the game against Memphis. He's been bothered by his left knee before, so this might not go away quickly, but it's good to see that he'll be able to keep playing.
Dec 15 - 6:34 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's game against the Kings.

Smith Jr. didn't shoot the ball well in his return from a four-game absence on Thursday, but it doesn't look like he'll miss any more time with the wrist issue. Owners can expect to get official confirmation on his status following Sunday's shootaround.
Dec 15 - 6:32 PM

Kyle Anderson (left ankle sprain) will not play Saturday against the Rockets.

Anderson turned his ankle in Friday's game and did not return. His minutes will be split by Omri Casspi, MarShon Brooks, Wayne Selden, and Shelvin Mack. None are really worth a play or a stream, unless you're feeling lucky.
Dec 15 - 6:31 PM

Tyreke Evans (bruised right knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

Evans has returned to a bench role with Victor Oladipo back and has played fewer than 20 minutes in each of the two games since his return. If he were to sit, Cory Joseph would likely see more time with Aaron Holiday possibly being dusted off, too.
Dec 15 - 6:24 PM

Goran Dragic (knee) is being listed as "out" for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

Sunday will be Dragic's third straight game out of the lineup, and his 12th game out of the lineup due to the knee issue. Justise Winslow could be looking at another start with Dragic unavailable, and there will be more opportunity for Wayne Ellington and Tyler Johnson. It's concerning that Dragic hasn't been able to shake this knee injury, and while surgery hasn't been discussed to this point, that could be something that eventually enters the conversation.
