Dario Saric (illness) has been added to the Sixers injury report and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

Saric, who has played in 64 of the Sixers 65 games this season, is dealing with gastroenteritis. We should have an update on his status at around 5:30 pm, when coach Brett Brown addresses the media before the game. If Saric is unable to play, Ersan Ilyasova would likely be the primary beneficiary. If the Sixers choose to go big, Richaun Holmes and Amir Johnson could also see an uptick in minutes.

Aron Baynes (ankle) will start on Wednesday against the Wizards.

He'll be returning from a two-game absence, but he'll have a minutes limit, so Daniel Theis should still see plenty of floor time. Baynes typically doesn't bring much to the box score, so partner that with a minutes cap, and he's an attractive target in most settings.
Dec 12 - 5:40 PM

Kevin Knox will get the start on Wednesday against the Cavs.

This has been expected since Sunday after Knox started the third quarter over Mario Hezonja. Knox has been hot as a scorer since Dec. 1, ranking second among rookies in scoring at 15.6 points per game and third in boards at 7.2. He's still going to have some gaping holes to his fantasy game for a lack of defensive stats with poor FG%, but feel free to give him a look with his new opportunity. He should be owned in points leagues.
Dec 12 - 5:35 PM

Otto Porter (right knee contusion) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics.

It's unclear exactly how active Porter was at shootaround, but the Wizards want him to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made. If he is forced to the sidelines, Kelly Oubre Jr. would be in line for a start and there will be more minutes available for Jeff Green. Stay tuned.
Dec 12 - 5:34 PM

Victor Oladipo (knee) will have a minutes limit in his return to the starting lineup against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He's been out since Nov. 17, so the Pacers won't totally unleash the reigning Most Improved Player. Coach Nate McMillan said Oladipo's knee responded well from the last two days of practice, so that's the best news of all after that wasn't the case at the end of November. There isn't a specific number, but Oladipo should be in all season-long lineups tonight.
Dec 12 - 5:28 PM

Furkan Korkmaz will get the start vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

Coach Brett Brown is going to pop the Kork on a new starting lineup after Korkmaz went off for a career-high 18 points on Monday night. He's a pure shooter and should help open up the offense with J.J. Redick out there. Jimmy Butler (groin) is not expected to miss much time, so Korkmaz is more of a stream or DFS play.
Dec 12 - 5:22 PM

John Wall (heel) will play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was probable to play in this one after missing Monday night, but Wall was able to go through most of his pre-game work on Monday. He has lost a step this year and perhaps he was playing through issues this month even before sitting out on Monday. His return to the lineup will likely bump Austin Rivers back to the bench.
Dec 12 - 5:19 PM

Mike Muscala (illness) will not play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

It's an upper respiratory infection for Muscala, so there will be some minutes available in the frontcourt. Wilson Chandler should be headed for huge minutes in a favorable matchup today, and Amir Johnson should get all of the backup center minutes behind Joel Embiid. Muscala has been solid as an asset in competitive leagues.
Dec 12 - 4:49 PM

Jimmy Butler (groin) will not play Wednesday against the Nets.

He suffered the injury on Monday and did not return. Butler's MRI only revealed "nothing significant" and it doesn't sound like he will be out for long. With him out, it will likely be Landry Shamet getting the start after starting the third quarter on Monday, and we should see Furkan Korkmaz get time off the bench. Ben Simmons becomes an attractive DFS play, too.
Dec 12 - 4:46 PM

Jonathon Simmons tweaked his right ankle during practice on Wednesday morning in Mexico City.

He was not able to finish the practice, and he iced on his foot as the session ended. This makes Simmons questionable at best for the game against the Bulls on Thursday. He's been below expectations this year and perhaps not having a full offseason due to a wrist issue cost him a chance to improve on a solid 2017-18. If he's out, there could be a few extra minutes for Wes Iwundu while Terrence Ross and Jonathan Isaac could also benefit.
Dec 12 - 3:36 PM

Brandon Knight (knee) is probable for Thursday against the Lakers.

It's a big boost for the Rockets, who just lost James Ennis (hamstring) for 1-2 weeks. Knight can play both guard spots and the lack of guard depth in Houston should get him in the rotation once he's healthy. Considering Knight hasn't played in an NBA game since Feb. 15, 2017, he'll certainly have a lot of restrictions upon his return. He is only worth an add in very deep leagues.
Dec 12 - 3:16 PM

Moe Harkless (rest) will not play vs. Memphis on Wednesday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set for Harkless, who played 31 minutes with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Rockets on Tuesday. He could start to become a valuable player in deeper leagues down the line, but he'll need to shake the restrictions first. Jake Layman will likely get the start while Evan Turner and Seth Curry could see additional run.
