Darren Collison underwent successful surgery to repair a core muscle injury, and he is expected to remain sidelined for approximately 6-weeks.
The NBA regular season ends in 6-weeks, so it's seems very likely that this will be the end to Collison's season. He'll finish with averages of 16.1 points, 5.6 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers per game on 47.3 percent shooting from the field. Andre Miller and Ray McCallum will continue to man the point guard position in Sacramento with Collison out, but their timeshare will limit their value to deeper leagues.
Kevin Love (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.
Go ahead and get him active. Those that made a speculative add of Tristan Thompson expecting a big night may want to look elsewhere for production.
Hassan Whiteside will not be suspended for Monday's altercation with Alex Len.
He will however be hit with a $15,000 fine, but Whiteside will be in the lineup for Wednesday's very favorable matchup against the Lakers.
Kris Humphries (groin) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.
Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to see extended minutes with Humphries unavailable, but they won't do enough statistically to matter in almost any league.
Updating a previous report, Beno Udrih (illness) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Utah.
Nick Calathes will have the opportunity for some additional playing time tonight, but with averages of just 4.0 points and 2.5 assists on the season, he can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
Updating a previous report, Zach Randolph (illness) and Beno Udrih (illness) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.
Mike Conley and Marc Gasol will be tasked with more responsibilities on offense with Randolph unavailable, and they're worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. It's unclear at this point who will replace Randolph in the starting lineup, but in the past it has been Jon Leuer or Kosta Koufos, although neither of those guys have been able to capitalize on the starting gig in the past.
Beno Udrih (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.
If Udrih is unable to go on Tuesday, Nick Calathes will pick up most of his reserve minutes, but that doesn't mean much. As long as Mike Conley is healthy, the backup point guards in Memphis won't be worth using in most leagues.
Tony Allen (suspension) will not play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.
Allen is being suspended for internal matters, but he will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Houston. With Allen out, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee will get all the minutes they can handle, with Green offering the most upside.
