Joel Embiid (right ankle soreness) is questionable Wednesday's game vs. Miami.

Embiid has been listed as questionable in each of Philly's last two games, but has suited up and dominated both contests, scoring at least 24 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in each game. This is the Sixers last game before the All-Star break, so he'll have the added benefit of extra rest in the near future. Check back later for confirmation of his status.

Erik Spoelstra said he expects Dwayne Wade (personal) to return to the team "soon."

The Heat could really use him back with Goran Dragic (knee) ruled out for the week, so maybe he'll be able to return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Nets. He had been playing relatively well prior to stepping away from the team after the birth of his daughter, so he could be worth a speculative add in deep leagues.

Dwight Howard (gluteal soreness) did not participate in Monday's practice.

This isn't the least bit surprising after Howard was forced out of Sunday's game with the back/butt issue, and considering he was struggling to put on socks on Sunday, we'd expect him to miss time moving forward. D12 is 32 years old with a history of back issues, which is very concerning, and the Wizards probably won't rush his return with them sitting on a 5-10 record. Markieff Morris will be the primary beneficiary while Howard is out, and Ian Mahinmi will likely return to the starting five.

Kris Dunn (left MCL sprain) has progressed to doing some straight-ahead running.

Today marks Week-4 of Dunn's 4-6 week timetable and considering he's still not taking contact or going through hard cuts, it's obvious that he'll be closer to the six-week mark; which is what we expected. The Bulls are sitting on a 4-13 record, so they're in no rush to bring Dunn back, and it'll be Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaquille Harrison splitting the majority of his minutes while he's out.

Goran Dragic had his right knee drained on Monday and will sit out the next three games for Miami.

"We knew it wasn’t serious but we knew it was something that needed to be taken care of," said Erik Spoelstra. "Hopefully, we can take care of it and wipe it out right now." It's never a good sign for a 32-year-old to be dealing with knee issues this early in the season, and this is the same knee that cost Dragic time last season. Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington will be the primary beneficiaries while he's out, and Josh Richardson will spend more time running the offense.

The Grizzlies have reportedly had "extensive discussions" with Joakim Noah in recent days.

The Grizzlies have been linked to Noah since early-November, and it sounds like they're willing to bring him on on a minimum-level deal. Noah would help bring some depth to Memphis' frontcourt, but we don't anticipate him having any fantasy value, regardless of the name across the front of his jersey.
Nov 19 - 1:17 PM

Trevor Ariza (personal) will return to the starting lineup on Monday vs. the 76ers, sending Mikal Bridges back to the second unit.

Ariza only missed two games, so he shouldn't be dealing with any sort of minutes limit tonight. Bridges will likely see his minutes reduced to the lower-20s while operating in a reserve role, and he's been too inconsistent to trust in most leagues. Ariza owners can go ahead and get him active.
Nov 19 - 1:11 PM

Kyle Lowry (ankle, rest) did not participate during Monday's practice.

Lowry exited Saturday's game with a right ankle issue, but some of that had to do with the game being a massive blowout, and Lowry wasn't sporting a noticeable limp after the game. When Nick Nurse was asked if Lowry sat out Monday's practice as a precaution, Nurse responded, "No, old," so it doesn't sound like he's dealing with anything too serious. For now, we'll consider Lowry probable for Tuesday's game against the Magic.
Nov 19 - 1:08 PM

Lauri Markkanen (elbow) will go through the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

If he responds well to Monday's workout, the Bulls will start ramping up his workload, so we should get another update on him by Tuesday. He's targeting a December return, so at this point, Markkanen should be stashed in all leagues.
Nov 19 - 1:05 PM

Wesley Matthews (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

Matthews will go through his pregame routine to test his hamstring, but it's worth noting that he was labeled as doubtful this morning, so owners should plan on being without his services. If he sits, Dorian Finney-Smith would earn another start, and he might be worth a punt play in DFS.
Nov 19 - 1:02 PM

Dwight Powell (left knee effusion) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

Powell played through the knee issue on Saturday, so it sounds like he may have suffered a setback. With him unavailable for Monday's game, there will be more minutes available for Maxi Kleber and Salah Mejri, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Nov 19 - 1:00 PM

Updating a previous report, J.J. Barea (left adductor strain) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. Memphis.

It's unclear exactly when Barea hurt his adductor, but it wouldn't be surprising to see this injury cost him multiple games. While he's out, Dennis Smith Jr. may be able to flirt with 30 minutes a night, and there will be more minutes available for Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris.
