LaMarcus Aldridge (right knee soreness) is not listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

Aldridge logged 26 minutes on Saturday, then sat out the front end of a back-to-back Monday vs. the Rockets, but appears to be on track to return to the lineup on Tuesday. The Spurs need to secure a victory over Orlando, as San Antonio has fallen to 10th place in the Western Conference and have the toughest remaining schedule in the league. Assuming Aldridge is cleared to start, Rudy Gay will get bumped back to the bench.

Jeff Green will start for Otto Porter (knee) against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Coach Scott Brooks likely wants to keep Kelly Oubre and Markieff Morris together in the second unit here. Green's starts have not gone well this year, averaging just 4.0 points and 4.0 boards in the two starts. Oubre almost certainly will be closing and is the better fantasy play here.
Dec 12 - 6:10 PM

Jaylen Brown (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Washington.

This is really unfortunate, as Brown had been rolling over the past three games and was headed for a favorable matchup with the Wizards. With him out, Marcus Smart and Semi Ojeleye will have the opportunity for more minutes and Terry Rozier will be more involved with the second unit. The Celtics play again on Friday against the Hawks, and for now, we'll be considering Brown questionable for that one.
Dec 12 - 6:03 PM

E'Twaun Moore (leg) will not play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

The Pelicans are going to be missing some bodies with Nikola Mirotic (ankle) also out. Moore's injury is not considered serious, but this will be his second game out in a row. Frank Jackson and Tim Frazier should have their minutes extended today with Frazier being a DFS option today in a tougher matchup.
Dec 12 - 6:01 PM

Otto Porter (knee) will not play vs. Boston on Wednesday.

It's been just a nightmare season for Otto, who hasn't been able to stay healthy due to toe issues, leg soreness and now this new knee problem. He is only day-to-day with what sounds like a minor problem, so he should be back for the weekend. Kelly Oubre, Tomas Satoransky and Jeff Green figure to see some extra run tonight.
Dec 12 - 5:56 PM

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

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.
