Carmelo Anthony made just 1-of-11 from the field for two points with five rebounds, and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

Technically, none of his shots went in because his one made field goal came off a Nerlens Noel goaltend call. Anthony has fallen off in a big way with a 3-of-9 coming on Monday, and in his last three games combined he has registered just one assist, no steals, and no blocks. Eric Gordon also returning soon would cut into his scoring chances. His upside will be capped in standard leagues and the Rockets poor play lately could be a bad sign, too.

Updating a previous report, Jeff Teague is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns with left ankle inflammation.

This is the same ankle issue that forced Teague to the sidelines for nearly three weeks from December-January, and with him also dealing with an illness, it seems unlikely that he'll be suiting up for a game against the worst team out West. If he does hit the sidelines, that would leave Derrick Rose and Jerryd Bayless as the only healthy point guards on the roster, and Rose would make for an attractive DFS target. Stay tuned.

Juancho Hernangomez (abdominal strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Hernangomez missed Saturday's game due to the abdominal strain, and it's looking like Wednesday could mark his second consecutive game on the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on his status following tomorrow's shootaround, but with Will Barton and Gary Harris healthy, Hernangomez has lost his fantasy appeal in most settings.
Jan 22 - 2:45 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee) is not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Harkless has missed the second game of the past three back-to-back sets, but it's looking like he'll be cleared to play tonight, which is an important step for him. Harkless hasn't been great this season, but he's done enough with the defensive stats to warrant some ownership in deep leagues.
Jan 22 - 2:36 PM

Joel Embiid (back) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Embiid played through the back issue over the past three games and looked fine, so owners can feel confident that he'll be out there on Wednesday. We'll get official confirmation on his status following tomorrow's shootaround.
Jan 22 - 2:28 PM

Will Barton and Gary Harris will remain on a sub-20 minutes limit for Wednesday's game in Utah.

Neither of these guys can be considered viable DFS targets while operating on a minutes limit, but they're safe to fire up in season-long settings. Malone said that once their minutes cap is expanded to the mid-20s, that they'll be re-inserted into the starting lineup, but for now, they'll remain with the second unit.
Jan 22 - 2:23 PM

Dragan Bender will get another start on Tuesday against the Timberwolves with Deandre Ayton (ankle) unavailable.

Bender put up 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a block across 29 minutes as a starter on Sunday, so he'll be someone to think about as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play tonight. Richaun Holmes (foot) is also unlikely to play, so Bender shouldn't have much trouble flirting with 30 minutes.
Jan 22 - 2:12 PM

Jimmy Butler (wrist) and Ben Simmons (illness) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

Butler missed Monday's game against the Rockets, but he was at the practice facility on Tuesday and went through most of the practice, so he feels a bit closer to probable. Simmons, on the other hand, didn't even show up for Tuesday's practice, so there's certainly a chance he skips Wednesday's game. We'll get another update on both these guys following Wednesday's shootaround.
Jan 22 - 2:05 PM

Kawhi Leonard (rest) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

Tuesday will be the third straight game the Raps have sat down Kawhi due to "load management." Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reported earlier in the day that Leonard would not play Tuesday because it was "the first leg of a back-to-back with a big game against the Pacers tomorrow." It's certainly uncommon for a player to be rested for three straight games, but the Raps clearly want to do whatever it takes to keep Kawhi happy, in hopes he will re-sign with Toronto this summer. Norman Powell and C.J. Miles will again see extra minutes off the bench.
Jan 22 - 1:33 PM

Coach David Fizdale said that Luke Kornet (ankle) is going to miss "a couple of weeks."

The Knicks announced Tuesday that Kornet had an MRI on his left ankle which confirmed a sprain with a bone bruise. Kornet, who is in a walking boot, will begin rehab immediately and will be re-evaluated over the weekend. Prior to Monday's game vs. OKC, coach David Fizdale announced that Enes Kanter would be the team's third-string center. However, on Tuesday, Fizdale said that he is "leaning towards" starting Kanter at center with Kornet out of action.
Jan 22 - 1:10 PM

Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is not surprising, as Ayton was considered doubtful as of yesterday. It will be the second straight game on the shelf for Ayton, who initially injured his ankle late in Saturday's loss to the Hornets. Richaun Holmes (right foot sprain) is also unlikely to play Tuesday. Dragan Bender will draw another start. Bender tallied 12 points on 4-of-10 shots with ten rebounds, two assists and a block on Sunday.
Jan 22 - 1:02 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore lower back) was able to practice on Tuesday and said that he felt "markedly better" and that he would play Wednesday vs. the Nets as long as he didn't have any setbacks.

Good news for Gordon owners, as it appears Gordon is good to go for Wednesday, after missing two straight contests for Orlando. We'll await confirmation after Wednesday's shootaround that Gordon is still on track return to game action. Jonathon Simmons had been starting in place of Gordon, but will be bumped back to the bench.
