Tyreke Evans (right rib) is out for Friday against the Jazz.

He's been out since the first game since the break and the Grizzlies continue to rule him out early. Clearly, they're not in a rush to bring him back with their 15-game losing streak helping them rise to the top lottery spot. It'll be Kobi Simmons likely getting another start next to Ben McLemore with Xavier Rathan-Mayes and Wayne Selden also getting some extra run. All of those guys could be worth using in fantasy with a back-to-back set coming up.

Serge Ibaka (right knee swelling) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Indiana.

Swelling and soreness in his right knee has been a nagging problem for Ibaka all season. However, he's only missed one game this season due to the issue, and that was back on November 14th. Ibaka has been awesome in 2018-19, ranking inside the top-40 in nine-category fantasy leagues, but the Raps may choose to try and limit his workload to keep him fresh down the stretch and into the playoffs. We should have an update on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. With Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) sidelined, Greg Monroe would be forced into heavy minutes if Ibaka is ruled out.
Dec 18 - 1:39 PM

Jaylen Brown (bruised right hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix.

Brown has dealt with numerous issue of late, from a tailbone injury earlier this month to an illness that sidelined him last week. Now he's dealing with a bruised hand. Brown has struggled this season and currently ranks outside the top-225 in nine-category leagues. He can be left on waivers.
Dec 18 - 1:08 PM

Al Horford (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix.

Horford, who was officially diagnosed with Patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee last week, has missed each of the Celtics previous five games. Wednesday will make it six in a row. Boston has said they will not rush their big man back, and the fact that he continues to get ruled out a day ahead of each game is not overly encouraging. Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will continue to divvy up minutes down low.
Dec 18 - 1:07 PM

Fred VanVleet (back) practiced with the team on Tuesday and is probable for Wednesday's game vs. Indiana.

VanVleet was able to play through nagging back pain early last week, but was sidelined for Sunday's loss to Denver. However, he is fully expected to return to game action on Wednesday. Kyle Lowry (thigh) is listed as questionable for that contest. With both FVV and Lowry sidelined on Sunday, Delon Wright started and logged a game-high 38 minutes. VanVleet will likely be re-inserted into the starting lineup if Lowry is unable to play on Wednesday.
Dec 18 - 12:53 PM

Pascal Siakam (back stiffness) practiced on Tuesday and is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

Siakam was injured on Friday in a scary fall and was unable to play to Sunday vs. the Nuggets. Fortunately, it looks that will be just a one-game absence for the sharpshooting wing. C.J. Miles started in place of Siakam on Sunday and logged 33 minutes, but will be bumped back to the bench
Dec 18 - 12:52 PM

Coach Alvin Gentry said Julius Randle (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Randle injured his ankle in Sunday's loss to the Heat when he came down on a Miami's player's foot. He was in immediate pain and limped to the locker room. It was expected he would miss at least one contest, as coach Gentry indicated he was doubtful for Wednesday after Sunday's game. Nikola Mirotic (ankle) has also been ruled out, so the Pels will be shorthanded up front. Cheick Diallo will see all the minutes he can handle, and New Orleans will also likely go small, with Darius Miller , Solomon Hill and Wes Johnson playing some PF.
Dec 18 - 12:51 PM

Kyle Lowry (left thigh contusion) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Indiana.

Lowry has missed each of the Raptors last two games due to the thigh injury. Fred VanVleet (back) was also sidelined for Sunday's game vs. Denver, which led to Delon Wright starting and logging 38 minutes. However, VanVleet is probable for Wednesday's game, so the Raps will have at least one of their two main PG's available for this contest. We should expect another update on Lowry's status after Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Dec 18 - 12:49 PM

Justise Winslow (right ankle pain) did not practice on Tuesday but is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Rockets.

Winslow, who was dealing with right calf tightness last week, injured his right ankle in Sunday's victory in New Orleans and was unable to return to that contest. However, it appears he avoided anything serious, as the fact that he is listed as probable is certainly encouraging. However, after a strong start to the month, Winslow has come crashing back down to earth. He's averaging just 5.0 points (on 25% shooting) and 3.3 rebounds in 22.7 minutes over the Heat's last three games.
Dec 18 - 12:37 PM

Coach Scott Brooks announced that Trevor Ariza will start in his Wizards debut vs. the Hawks on Tuesday night.

The trade, sending Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers to Phoenix in exchange for Ariza, was made official on Monday. Ariza is in Atlanta with the team and was able to participate in shootaround. Ariza will likely see all the minutes he can handle in his debut. The Wizards will need him, especially with Otto Porter (knee) sidelined. It may take a little time to build some chemistry with his new mates, but Ariza projects as a solid fantasy contributor in Washington. He should be owned in all leagues.
Dec 18 - 12:10 PM

Tobias Harris scored 39 points, shooting 15-of-22 from the field and 6-of-8 from the foul line, while also tallying 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes Monday vs. Portland.

The point total represents a new career-high for Harris, who has scored 30 points or more three times this season. And with nine double-doubles thus far, he's likely a safe bet to establish a new career high for double-doubles in a season (he had 12 during the 2015-16 campaign). Not only is Harris a highly valuable fantasy player, but he's also a worthy candidate for an All-Star Game spot.
Dec 18 - 1:22 AM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in a 121-96 win over the Bulls on Monday, scoring 13 points with 16 rebounds and 11 assists.

This was his seventh triple-double of the season and 111th of his career. He finished 5-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with four turnovers, adding five steals in 32 minutes. Westy has an absurd 19 steals in his last four games which has bumped him up to a league-leading 2.5 per game as he continues to dominate four categories (points, rebounds, assists and steals) for his fantasy owners. His lack of triples, poor percentages and high turnovers have held his value in check, though.
