Willie Cauley-Stein (lower back strain) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.

This is good news after the Kings have been ruling him out early since last week. Cauley-Stein has had back problems before and the Kings have little incentive to play him now. If he's back, that means either Kosta Koufos and/or Zach Randolph would be much more likely to sit.

Kevin Huerter matched his career-high 19 points with two rebounds, three assists, one block, three steals and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

This had nothing to do with garbage time and he's now scored 19 in back-to-back games. He was one of the best shooters in the draft, and he's caught fire lately. Since Nov. 18, he's made 25-of-51 from deep (49.0%). Huerter has assured himself a rotation spot when Taurean Prince comes back, and he may be playing well enough for coach Lloyd Pierce to push Kent Bazemore back to the bench. The upped pace and bad record makes Huerter worth an add in 12-team leagues to see how long he can keep it rolling.

Frank Ntilikina (sprained right ankle) will not return on Friday night.

He was hobbling around in the second half and he may have been playing through an ankle tweak from earlier in the game, so it looks like it's minor. Ntilikina was trending up with 17.0 points per game over the previous two, and he was playing well today with seven points, six boards, five dimes, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes. Hopefully he can play on Sunday, but if not that means big minutes for Emmanuel Mudiay.
Dec 14 - 9:01 PM

Kyle Lowry (left thigh contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Blazers.

He's getting ruled out just over an hour before tip-off, so he's not even going to warm up with the team. Lowry originally had a questionable tag, so he's still more than likely day-to-day. Fred VanVleet should draw the start and is worth streaming even on a 9-game slate, and that means we should see more of Delon Wright as well.
Dec 14 - 9:00 PM

Kawhi Leonard (hip) will play on Friday night against the Blazers.

He missed the Tuesday-Wednesday B2B set, but there was never really much concern about his bruised hip. Leonard is going to miss games this year with minor issues, but he's been a top-five fantasy player when he's on the court. Get the well-rested Kawhi in your lineup.
Dec 14 - 8:39 PM

Andre Iguodala (hip) will not play vs. the Kings on Friday.

He was questionable to play, but coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala will hopefully play on Monday. With him out, Draymond Green may get his minutes extended while we see more Jonas Jerebeko, Jordan Bell, and Kevon Looney.
Dec 14 - 8:33 PM

Coach Mike Malone said the team will monitor Jamal Murray (shin) against the Thunder on Friday.

He'll be out there in a tough matchup, but he almost certainly won't be guarding Russell Westbrook. Malone said they're going to have a "big picture mindset" on Murray and they don't want to make it worse. He should be in all season-long lineups, but he's a risky DFS play.
Dec 14 - 8:30 PM

Mitchell Robinson (left ankle) will not return on Friday night.

He suffered the injury in the first half as his foot turned up against Frank Kaminsky. Robinson's ankle roll didn't look bad and X-rays are negative, so hopefully he can make it back for Sunday. We'll see more Noah Vonleh at the five while Enes Kanter gets a longer leash.
Dec 14 - 8:00 PM

Hassan Whiteside is back in the starting lineup against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He was away from the team for a week to be there for the birth of his son, and of course there was the talk of him leaving the bench early in the game before. Whiteside may not get a full workload after so much time off, but go ahead and put him back in your lineup. This will take minutes from Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk.
Dec 14 - 7:21 PM

Mike Conley (hamstring) is available to play against the Heat on Friday.

He has said he's been careful with his hamstring and on Wednesday he didn't want to sprint 100%, so this could be something to watch. The Grizzlies are also on a back-to-back set with Houston in town tomorrow, so Conley could have a soft limit tonight.
Dec 14 - 7:19 PM

Otto Porter (knee) is out again for Friday against the Nets.

He still can't get right after being a game-time decision and sitting out on Wednesday. Porter's season has been an injury-filled letdown, and hopefully the time off for his knee can help his knee heal too. It'll be Jeff Green starting again after a surprising 22-point Wednesday while Kelly Oubre continues to play extremely will.
Dec 14 - 7:05 PM

Taj Gibson (personal) will not play Saturday against the Suns.

Hopefully everything is OK, but the Wolves shouldn't need him against the worst team in the league. This puts Dario Saric in a smash spot for DFS, and it should be Anthony Tolliver backing him up.
