The Nuggets will start Jamal Murray (leg), Gary Harris, Torrey Craig, Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

Murray is dealing with two rolled ankles and a tibia contusion, but he's known for playing through injuries. He's off to a rough start to the season, but his fantasy owners just need to hang on in the short term.

Garrett Temple is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings with left groin soreness.

The Grizzlies will be without Dillon Brooks (foot) and Chandler Parsons (knee), so Temple should see a big chunk of minutes barring a setback. He's been all over the place in terms of production and is just a low-end fantasy asset for now.
Oct 23 - 7:22 PM

Chandler Parsons has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings with right knee soreness.

The Grizzlies are listing him as day-to-day, but given his history (two right knee surgeries), this could easily be an extended absence. Kyle Anderson's fantasy owners will be eager to see if he can finally make some noise.
Oct 23 - 7:18 PM

Dillon Brooks (right foot soreness) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

The Grizzlies added that Brooks is expected to return within the "next few games," so it's safe to assume he's out vs. the Kings. The Grizzlies will also be without Chandler Parsons (knee), so Kyle Anderson has a big opportunity in front of him. Wayne Selden took Brooks' minutes on Monday night, but MarShon Brooks could be involved as well. Most fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach here.

Landry Shamet will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game in Detroit, with Ben Simmons (back) unavailable.

Brett Brown will go with a starting five featuring Markelle Fultz, Shamet, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid tonight, and while J.J. Redick won't get the start, he should see an uptick in minutes. Shamet has been hit-or-miss this season, but he could be worth a dart throw in DFS given the opportunity that's in front of him.

Brett Brown is debating whether to start J.J. Redick or Landry Shamet at shooting guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Ben Simmons (back) is out, which will shift Markelle Fultz over to the point guard position, thus opening up a spot at the two. The 76ers won 52 games last year with Redick as the starting two-man, but Brown likes the scoring punch he brings off the bench, so he may start Shamet to keep the roles consistent. Even if Redick doesn't start, he should clear 30 minutes and will see an increased role on offense, giving him some DFS appeal.
Oct 23 - 6:29 PM

Markelle Fultz will start at point guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, with Ben Simmons (back) unavailable.

With Fultz shifting over to his natural position at PG, Brett Brown will bring either J.J. Redick or Landry Shamet into the starting five, and T.J. McConnell may see an uptick in minutes with the second unit. We should get word on the official starters within the next 30 minutes. Stay tuned.

Ian Mahinmi (back) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

Mahinmi exited Monday's game due to back spasms, and if he is forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, that would leave the Wizards very thin at center with Dwight Howard (back) also unavailable. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at shootaround, so expect another update by Wednesday afternoon. Jason Smith could start if he's out, and Thomas Bryant could get into the rotation.
Oct 23 - 6:21 PM

Dwight Howard (back) will not play on Wednesday against the Warriors.

He's not traveling with the team, so there's a good chance he'll miss the remaining four games of this road trip. Ian Mahinmi (back) is being listed as questionable, and if he can't give it a go, the Wizards will need to get creative at the five-spot. Jason Smith could start, while Jeff Green and Markieff Morris would see an uptick in minutes.

Shaun Livingston (left knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Livingston has spent the past two games on the sidelines, which has resulted in Quinn Cook operating as Stephen Curry's primary backup. It'll be more of the same if he's out again tomorrow.
Oct 23 - 6:14 PM

Klay Thompson (left ankle) is probable to play Wednesday against the Wizards.

Thompson tweaked his ankle during the fourth quarter of Monday's blowout win over the Suns, but the injury was never believed to be serious, and the probable tag confirms that. We should get official confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned.
Oct 23 - 6:12 PM

Will Barton underwent successful surgery to repair hip and core muscles on Tuesday and he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

On Monday, Barton was given a rough 5-6 week timetable, but unfortunately, it's now looking like his absence could extend beyond six weeks. He's a tough guy to hang onto in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot, but owners may want to try and sell him for next to nothing rather than cut him for a waiver wire scrub if that's the situation you're looking at. Torrey Craig should continue to start in his absence, with Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles also filling out some of the small forward minutes.

D.J. Wilson (right hamstring strain) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

Leave him on the wire.
Oct 23 - 5:58 PM

T.J. Leaf (left ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

His playing status is irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Oct 23 - 5:57 PM

Brett Brown is debating whether to start T.J. McConnell or Markelle Fultz at point guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, with Ben Simmons (back) unavailable.

Whether he starts or not, McConnell should be good for minutes in the mid-20s with Simmons out for the night, so he might be someone to consider streaming in deep leagues for those seeking to bolster the assist category. It's worth noting that Brown didn't mention J.J. Redick when discussing the lineup change, so if McConnell does start, it sounds like Fultz will remain at the two-spot.
