Dwyane Wade will start again against the Kings on Saturday.

This isn't a surprise after a really bad loss. The Bulls will still stick with Michael Carter-Williams, Wade, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Robin Lopez.
Jan 21 - 7:18 PM

Mindaugas Kuzminskas will come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

The Knicks still want to play Kristaps Porzingis at the five, so there should still be some minutes for Kuzminskas tonight. We'll let you know how he fares, but most of his owners should be planning on cutting him.
Jan 21 - 7:16 PM

Ron Baker will move back to the bench against the Suns on Thursday.

He could be a DNP-CD after two extremely quiet games. Baker can be cut just about everywhere.
Jan 21 - 7:12 PM

Kyle O'Quinn will comes off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

He is coming off a great start, but coach Jeff Hornacek will shift him back to the bench behind Joakim Noah. O'Quinn can go off in a short amount of playing time and Noah won't play too much, so his value doesn't change in a big way.
Jan 21 - 7:10 PM

Courtney Lee will start and Ron Baker will come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

After Lee's 'Dumb and Dumber' saga, he's back in the starting lineup. He should play with an extra edge and has a great matchup, so he could hit the ground running. We still wouldn't use Lee in most cases.
Jan 21 - 7:07 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will start and Mindaugas Kuzminskas will come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

The Knicks are playing their old lineup here and will shift Carmelo Anthony back to the three. We'll see how the Knicks stagger KP, which was a good plan earlier this season. Porzingis should be all set in a fantastic matchup today.
Jan 21 - 7:06 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will start and Kyle O'Quinn will come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

Noah is almost certainly going to be limited and his playing time is likely going to be low. Leave Noah on the wire in most leagues for now.
Jan 21 - 7:05 PM

Dion Waiters will stick in the starting lineup against the Bucks on Saturday.

This is somewhat interesting with Tyler Johnson (shoulder) out. With Goran Dragic as really the only ball-handler, we will probably see Waiters be used in a C.J. McCollum-esque role. In other words, he'll likely be staggered from Goran Dragic to make him the backup one to go with his starting two duties. He should be busy tonight and gains value while Johnson is out.
Jan 21 - 6:56 PM

Kevin Love (back) will play against the Spurs on Saturday night.

He did not play against the Suns on Thursday, but the Cavs still took care of business without him. We'll see if that was more of a precaution to hold him out, but Love going through shootaround and being announced as in so early are great signs. Expect him to be firing away with the Spurs keying on LeBron James.
Jan 21 - 6:49 PM

Jeremy Lamb (foot) will not play on Saturday against the Nets.

The updates have been pretty sparse on Lamb, so he's likely looking at a few more games out. With him out, it'll be Marco Belinelli and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist getting more solidified roles.
Jan 21 - 6:38 PM

Sam Dekker will start on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

With Ryan Anderson (flu) out, it's usually been Corey Brewer starting. This time, coach Mike D'Antoni is going with a little more size, which makes sense against the Grizzlies. Dekker has impressed us this season and he can add a little bit of everything to the stat sheet, so he may have some attractive value until Ryno comes back.
Jan 21 - 6:35 PM

Jabari Parker has been benched for Saturday's game against the Heat due to a team rule violation.

Those are really all the details we have so far on this. Coach Jason Kidd is about as unpredictable as they come, so Parker could play anywhere from zero seconds to 47 minutes and 59 seconds. Thon Maker will get the start with Parker being punished. Obviously there's no long-term concern here, but DFS owners probably want to steer clear of this situation today. Although, you have to like Giannis Antetokounmpo even more.
Jan 21 - 6:27 PM

Malcom Brogdon will come off the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

Besides wanting to get Matt Dellavedova going, coach Jason Kidd likes the idea of keeping Brogdon with Greg Monroe -- that's actually a very valid point. Brogdon owners shouldn't worry too much here because he was playing well off the bench before he was put into the starting lineup.
Jan 21 - 6:24 PM

Matt Dellavedova will start and Malcolm Brogdon will come off the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

This is designed to get Dellavedova going and get out of a slump, according to coach Jason Kidd. It could be a one-time thing for Delly and he wasn't playing well even when he was a starter before the injury, so leave him on the wire for now.
Jan 21 - 6:22 PM

Thon Maker will start for Jabari Parker against the Heat on Saturday.

Hello there. Maker has played in just 19 games at 4.2 per outing with most of that coming in garbage time. He's extremely raw, but the Bucks may want to get a look at him against a banged-up Heat squad. With Jabari Parker coming off the bench due to a team violation, this is a situation to avoid in fantasy today. Leave Maker on the wire.
