Tyus Jones (ankle) will remain on the sidelines for Sunday's game against the Suns.

It'll be his second straight game on the sidelines, and given that he's dealing with a high ankle sprain, we wouldn't expect him back any time soon. Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague will receive the majority of the PG minutes while he's out, and Jerryd Bayless will be able to get into the rotation. Jones isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues.

Chimezie Metu has been recalled from the G-League by the Spurs.

Metu will be with the team for Sunday's home game against the Clippers, but is highly unlikely to see any playing time. Leave him on the wire until further notice.
Jan 20 - 2:44 PM

Lonnie Walker has been recalled from the G-League by the Spurs ahead of Sunday's game against the Clippers.

Walker missed most of the season due to a knee injury, but has recently returned to action and has been playing in the G-League. He's not going to have much impact this season unless there are injuries ahead of him in the rotation, but he's a name for dynasty league owners to keep an eye on.

Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb) will undergo surgery on Monday, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Carter Jr. underwent more tests to determine if surgery was needed and it looks like those tests went badly. It seems likely that he'll be sidelined for the rest of the season because he'll be out for up to three months, per Charania. Bobby Portis will gain the most from WCJ's absence, with Robin Lopez and Jabari Parker seeing time until the trade deadline passes. Cristiano Felicio will likely play some, as well, and is a target for deeper league owners.

Gary Payton II is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Wizards on Monday, according to Marc J. Spears of the Undefeated.

Payton II has been playing with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA's G-League this season. The Wizards need to sign someone to reach the minimum player requirement and will do so by signing Payton to a 10-day deal, which will also save them from adding to their luxury tax bill. He's averaging 19.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 3.4 steals in the high-paced Vipers system. It's unlikely he makes much of an impact with the Wizards, so he's best left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 20 - 2:26 PM

Allen Crabbe (sore right knee) will miss another game on Monday against the Kings.

Crabbe has been out for quite some time now and was supposed to be re-evaluated again by now. We haven't heard much regarding his status, which means he's likely not close to a return. Shabazz Napier will continue to see rotation time in Crabbe's absence.
Jan 20 - 2:18 PM

Jared Dudley (left hamstring strain) is out for Monday's game against the Kings.

Dudley will miss his fourth consecutive game with no word on a return date. His minutes will be divvied up between Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Rodions Kurucs, Treveon Graham, and DeMarre Carroll.
Jan 20 - 2:17 PM

Alex Abrines (personal) is still listed as out for Monday's game against the Knicks.

Abrines has been away from the team due to an undisclosed personal issue. There is no word on when he will potentially return, which leaves more time for Hamidou Diallo and Abdel Nader off the bench.
Jan 20 - 2:09 PM

Brandon Knight (left knee soreness) is questionable for Monday's game against the 76ers.

Knight has missed four straight games due to this ailment. With Eric Gordon back in the lineup, Knight's role would have been cut anyway. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 20 - 2:01 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Smith Jr. has been away from the team partly because of illness, but also due to concerns over his role and place with the team going forward. Coach Rick Carlisle has stated that he would welcome DSJ back into the team. Until this is figured out, it's likely he stays away from the team, which leaves Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris to benefit from his absence.
Jan 20 - 1:59 PM

Ricky Rubio (right hamstring strain) returned to practice in a full capacity on Sunday.

Rubio has been out for almost two weeks now after first sustaining in the injury and will have his status updated for Monday's game later on Sunday. If he's still out, Donovan Mitchell will continue to shoulder the load on offense with Royce O'Neale filling in with the starting lineup.
Jan 20 - 1:55 PM

DeAndre Jordan (left ankle sprain) is probable for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Jordan turned his ankle after appearing to step on Thad Young's during Saturday's game. It took him some time to shake off the pain, but he stayed in the game. Keep him in your lineups for this four-game week.
Jan 20 - 1:52 PM

Trey Burke (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Thunder.

Burke has been in and out of the rotation this season. If he sits, it won't have much impact on fantasy hoops.
Jan 20 - 1:42 PM

Enes Kanter (illness) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Thunder.

Kanter missed the Knicks last game in London due to safety concerns, but missed the prior two due to illness. He will return to the lineup, which will take some time at center away from Mitchell Robinson and Luke Kornet.
Jan 20 - 1:38 PM

Wade Baldwin has been recalled from an assignment in the G-League, while Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. have been sent down.

Baldwin has been used very sparingly by the Blazers this season with their guards mostly healthy. None of Baldwin, Simons or Trent Jr. should be owned outside of dynasty formats.
