DeMar DeRozan struggled from the field (4-of-12 shooting), scoring 15 points and adding six assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

DeRozan initiated a lot of the offense for the Spurs in this one, with Dejounte Murray out for the season and Derrick White acclimating himself to the starting lineup. DeRozan stands to benefit from Murray's unfortunate injury, as he will be relied on to handle the ball more. Interestingly, with LaMarcus Aldridge resting, DeRozan only took 12 shots. This is probably a function of him getting used to the Spurs, something that guys struggle with. Even amidst his slow preseason, DeRozan is still a safe option in the fourth-to-fifth round range.

Justise Winslow (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. New York.

Winslow has been dealing with a nagging hammy injury all month but is finally set to make his season debut on Wednesday. In 2017-18, Winslow averaged 7.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists and signed a three-year, $39 million extension with the Heat this offseason.

Hassan Whiteside is expected to play Wednesday night vs. the Knicks.

Wayne Ellington (left ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Ellington has yet to make his 2018-19 debut, but has been heading in the right direction. He went through shootaround Saturday morning, yet coach Erik Spoelstra said he wanted Ellington to get in a full practice before he is cleared to play. No word yet if he suffered any sort of set back over the past couple of days.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that James Ennis (strained right hamstring) won't play Wednesday's game vs. Utah.

Ennis strained his hamstring midway through the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Clippers. Ennis had started each of the Rockets first three games, and was averaging 6.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 23.3 minutes. With Ennis sidelined, Michael Carter-Williams will draw the start in his place.

Coach Dwane Casey said that Andre Drummond (illness) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Sixers.

Drummond missed Monday's practice with the flu, which left his status for Tuesday uncertain. However, he was seen getting up shots following the team's shootaround and is on track to suit up Tuesday night for his showdown against Joel Embiid, which will be a fun matchup to watch. On the season, Drummond is averaging 17.0 points, 16.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Markelle Fultz will start at point guard on Tuesday vs. Detroit if Ben Simmons (lower back tightness) is ruled out.

Fultz has struggled with his shot this season, shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and 50 percent from the free-throw line. He would likely log a season-high in playing time if Simmons is unable to suit up, making him an interesting option in DFS formats. On the season, Fultz is averaging 11.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per-36 minutes. T.J. McConnell would backup Fultz and see plenty of playing time off the bench if Fultz struggles on Tuesday.

Ben Simmons (lower back tightness) did not participate in shootaround and coach Brett Brown said that he is doubtful to play Tuesday night vs. Detroit.

Simmons exited Saturday game vs. Orlando due to tightness in his lower back and was unable to practice on Monday. The game notes list Simmons as questionable, but Brown said it's unlikely he suits up. Simmons received treatment and did rehabilitation stretches during the team's shootaround. Brown said Markelle Fultz will start at PG if Simmons is ruled out. That would open up minutes at shooting guard for J.J. Redick. T.J. McConnell would also see an uptick in playing time.

According to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, John Collins (left ankle) is expected to be sidelined for "several weeks."

Collins was initially injured back in early October. He underwent an MRI on Oct. 2, which revealed mild inflammation and soreness in his left ankle. He then underwent a non-surgical procedure on October 8th and it was announced that he would be re-evaluated on October 22nd. On Tuesday morning, Vivlamore tweeted: "Don't expect [Collins] to be back for several weeks, into November. Still hasn't done court work." This is obviously not the news Collins owners were hoping to hear, but they have no choice but to remain patient. Vince Carter, Omari Spellman, Kevin Huerter and Alex Poythress will continue to divvy up extra minutes.

LeBron James scored 32 points with 14 assists, eight rebounds, one steal, one block and two triples in Monday's 143-142 overtime loss to the Spurs.

LeBron sent the game to overtime with a pull-up triple with 2.4 seconds left, but missed a pair of free throws with 12.8 seconds left in OT and then followed that with a missed step-back jumper in the final second. The Lakers are now 0-3, but they've gone down to the wire against three playoff teams in SAS, HOU and POR. It's too early to panic and we'd expect LBJ to right the ship sooner rather than later. As for his fantasy value, he looks as strong as ever in his age-33 season.
Oct 23 - 2:30 AM

Kyle Kuzma moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Spurs and made a big impression, scoring 37 points with eight rebounds, three assists and four triples in 45 minutes.

He finished just one point shy of his career-high, hitting 15-of-25 shots and 3-of-4 free throws. He's an exciting fit next to LeBron James because of his floor spacing and mobility, but this is just a short-term move because Brandon Ingram is suspended (three more games). If tonight was an indication, Kuzma's owners should have quite a week.
Oct 23 - 2:14 AM

Lonzo Ball moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Spurs, scoring 14 points with six assists, six rebounds, one steal and three triples.

Coach Luke Walton said Ball doesn't have restrictions, and it was encouraging to see him play 33 minutes in the overtime loss. Ball was also efficient in this one, hitting 4-of-8 shots and 1-of-2 free throws with just one turnover. With Rajon Rondo suspended for two more games, Ball should be able to make a strong case to keep his starting spot the rest of the way. He just needs to stay healthy.
