Jayson Tatum (low back tightness) is probable to play Wednesday against the Wizards.

The Celtics absolutely need Tatum with most of their main guys hurting, so he'll likely gut it out for tonight's game and he could be dealing with a hefty usage rate. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tipoff.

Goran Dragic is not on the injury report and is expected to play on Monday against the Lakers after sitting out for rest on Saturday.

The Heat should also have Wayne Ellington back, but Hassan Whiteside is out, and Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson are both questionable. Dragic looks like a decent fantasy play with four games this week, assuming his knee holds up for all of them. He recently missed eight games due to the knee problem.
Dec 9 - 10:14 PM

Hassan Whiteside (personal) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Lakers.

This will be his third straight game missed for the birth of his first child, but it's also interesting given that guys don't usually miss this much time for the birth of a child, and the last time we saw him he left the bench before his game was over. There could be more to this, but either way, both Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk will see a bunch of minutes on Monday night, along with Justise Winslow.
Dec 9 - 10:10 PM

Josh Richardson (shoulder) is questionable to play in Monday's game.

That's all the information we've got, so owners have a decision to make. The good news is the Heat play four times this week, so even if Richardson sits on Monday, he'll still have a shot at playing in three games this week.

Rudy Gobert handed out a career-high seven assists during Sunday's road loss, adding 12 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) and eight rebounds.

Gobert also had one steal and one block in 34 minutes of action, and this was a nice return for fantasy owners after his early ejection on Thursday. Ignoring that game, he's scored double-digit points in all but one game this season, and his blocks have picked up lately with 15 in the past five. He's hitting early-round value and looks even better if you ignore the abysmal FT shooting (59.5% on 5.9 attempts per game).
Dec 9 - 9:49 PM

Rudy Gay notched 23 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes on Sunday, making 10-of-16 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws in 34 minutes.

That gives Gay five double-doubles this season and he looks far more comfortable two years removed from his Achilles surgery. The Spurs rolled to a 110-97 victory behind Gay, DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, and all signs point to Gay cruising with top-100 value. Despite occasional concern about his right heel/Achilles, he's playing in back-to-back sets and hasn't missed a game since Nov. 14.
Dec 9 - 9:41 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 26 points on Sunday with eight assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block.

After lighting up the Lakers on Friday, DeRozan kept it up and had 16/5/5 at halftime tonight -- the first time in his career that he's hit those numbers in a half. He shot 10-of-23 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line tonight, without a single turnover in 38 minutes, and continues to post career-best fantasy value in his first campaign under Gregg Popovich.
Dec 9 - 9:40 PM

Fred VanVleet finished Sunday's loss vs. the visiting Bucks with a season-high 19 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists.

VanVleet shot 7-of-12 from the field and chipped in one steal without a single turnover in 27 minutes. He closed this game in a small-ball lineup while Pascal Siakam watched from the bench, and finally snapped out of an extended slump that had him shooting a combined 10-of-36 from the field (27.8%) over the past five games. He's worth a look if you need a cheap PG in competitive leagues.
Dec 9 - 8:38 PM

Kyle Lowry didn't score in 34 minutes on Sunday, but he did contribute five rebounds, six assists and one block in a home loss vs. Milwaukee.

Lowry sat out last Saturday with a sore back and it's hard to imagine the injury isn't still impacting him -- he's shooting 4-of-28 from the field (14.3%) over the past four games. He's not using it as an excuse and an upward correction is inevitable, so get in your low-ball offers while you still can.
Dec 9 - 8:37 PM

The Lakers are "engaged in talks" to trade for Trevor Ariza, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Suns reportedly want "a playmaking guard and a draft asset" in return for Ariza. It sounds like the fundamentals of a deal could be close, since they're "working to reach an agreement with a third team" willing to take on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's $12 million salary. A trade to L.A. would help the Lakers in reality, but it wouldn't necessarily benefit Ariza's fantasy value while LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram are healthy.

Robert Covington (sore right knee) is probable to play Monday against the Warriors.

Covington sat out Saturday's game with the knee issue, but it's looking like it'll only be a one-game absence. With RoCo expected to play tomorrow, Derrick Rose will likely return to the second unit and Josh Okogie could drop from the rotation entirely.
Dec 9 - 7:14 PM

Anthony Davis (right hip) went 2-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line on his way to six points, nine boards, four assists, five blocks and one turnover in 26 minutes on Sunday.

Davis took a knee to his right hip on a Blake Griffin drive to the hoop that forced him out for most of the first half of action, and while he eventually got back out there after halftime, he clearly did not look 100%. This is the sort of thing that could get worse overnight, so for now, we're going to have to consider him questionable for Monday's game in Boston. With it being the second leg of a back-to-back set, the Pelicans won't host a shootaround, so owners might not get another update until he's able to go through his pregame routine.
