Reggie Bullock (illness) returned to the lineup Friday against the Wizards, posting nine points on 3-of-5 shooting from behind the arc.

Bullock is over a bout of bronchitis, and he was listed as a game-time decision for this one. He also chipped in with two assists and a blocked shot over 24 minutes. He is averaging just 5.5 points per game over his past two outings, and he has single-digit performances in four of his past five. If you normally rely upon him, keep him reserved in all fantasy leagues until he starts to produce with a little more consistency.

Stanley Johnson (hip) was active for Friday's game against the Wizards, playing 12 minutes off the bench.

Johnson was able to post five points on 1-of-3 shooting, while going 2-of-2 from the free-throw line with two steals and an assist. Even though he is healthy and was able to play without any setbacks, he can mostly be left to the waiver wire in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.
Jan 20 - 12:20 AM

Avery Bradley (groin) was active for Friday's 122-112 loss against the Wizards.

Bradley went to see a specialist on Thursday after aggravating his groin injury on Wednesday. He made it through the game fine, logging 29 minutes while hitting 7-of-16 from the field while chipping in with three rebounds an an assist. It appears safe to keep him active in fantasy leagues if you reserved him as a precaution.
Jan 20 - 12:17 AM

Luke Kennard (thumb) finished with 16 points over 22 minutes in Friday's 122-112 loss against the Wizards.

Kennard went 4-of-7 from the field, while hitting 3-of-5 from behind the arc, while turning in a perfect 5-of-5 night from the free-throw line. He also chipped in with two assists and one rebound. He didn't show any ill effects from the thumb injury which sidelined him on Wednesday against the Raptors. He is still only worth using in the deepest of fantasy formats despite the solid game.
Jan 20 - 12:03 AM

Tobias Harris went for a team-high 17 points in Friday's 122-112 setback against the Wizards.

Harris hit 7-of-19 from the field, and 1-of-7 from behind the arc, so it wasn't the best of shooting nights. He made up for it by adding three rebounds, an assist and a steal with just one turnover across 31 minutes. Since his seven-point effort on Jan. 13 in Chicago, Harris has posted 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 blocked shots over his past three outings. The points are only slightly under his season average despite the poor shooting recently.
Jan 19 - 11:59 PM

Ish Smith posted 15 points and seven assists over 35 minutes in Friday's 122-112 loss against the Wizards.

Smith bounced back nicely with a solid 7-of-11 shooting night after turning in an ugly 1-of-12 performance on Wednesday in Toronto. There's something about the home cooking that he likes, as Smith is 39-of-73 (53.4 percent) from the floor over his past six home contests, and 23-of-62 (37.1 percent) from the field across his past six on the road. The good news for Smith's fantasy owners and DFS players is that this was the first game of a four-game homestand through Jan. 27, and nine of his next 10 are at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, too.
Jan 19 - 11:32 PM

Andre Drummond finished with 14 points, 21 rebounds and eight assists over 43 minutes in Friday's home loss against the Wizards before fouling out late in the fourth quarter.

The Pistons might have fallen by 10 points at home, but it was no fault of Drum. He brought it on Friday, hitting 4-of-5 from the field while adding 6-of-8 from the free-throw line, adding eight assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Six of his rebounds were at the offensive end, too, giving his team second chances to score.
Jan 19 - 11:23 PM

Ish Smith, Avery Bradley, Reggie Bullock, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond will start against the Wizards on Friday.

So Bradley will be out there after his trip to see a doctor on Thursday. His owners can throw him in their lineups and hope he can capitalize on the Wizards struggling lately.
Jan 19 - 7:54 PM

Luke Kennard (thumb) is active for Friday against the Wizards.

He was also available to play on Wednesday, but the team held him out. Kennard can't be counted on in fantasy while Avery Bradley is active.
Jan 19 - 6:25 PM

Stanley Johnson (hip) is active for Friday night against the Wizards.

It's still possible Johnson is out of the rotation with Reggie Bullock playing well lately. Leave Johnson on the wire in just about all leagues for now.
Jan 19 - 6:24 PM

Reggie Bullock (illness) is active for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

He sat out of the morning shootaround and was considered "50/50" to play, but he'll give it a go and could see his normal allotment of minutes if he's feeling up to it. He's been inconsistent, but he does have some low-end value for his 3-pointers and steals.
Jan 19 - 6:22 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) is active for Friday night against the Wizards.

He saw a specialist on Thursday and it sounds like he'll be ready to go. To be clear, this doesn't necessarily mean he'll be a full go. Bradley has not looked right for most of this season and there's a chance he's playing through this injury. He's still a hold in most leagues.
Jan 19 - 6:22 PM

Jon Leuer (ankle) will have season-ending surgery on Friday.

2017-18 has been a lost season for Leuer. He played in only eight games, with his final appearance coming back on Halloween. Hopefully, this surgery to correct ankle issues he's been dealing with for years will put him on track to return fully healthy for training camp next September. He should obviously be left on waivers in all fantasy formats.
Jan 19 - 12:03 PM

Avery Bradley (groin), Stanley Johnson (hip), and Luke Kennard (thumb) all went through shootaround and are considered "50/50" to play Friday vs. Washington.

Bradley saw a specialist in Philadelphia on Thursday and had an injection to help with the injury. Coach Stan Van Gundy told reporters at shootaround that he "feels Bradley will go." However, we will have to wait until closer to tip before we have confirmation on these players. Langston Galloway would see an uptick in minutes if Bradley or Kennard were unable to suit up.
Jan 19 - 11:59 AM

Reggie Bullock (illness) was unable to participate in shootaround and is "50/50" to play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Bullock is battling bronchitis and it sounds like he will be a game-time decision Friday night. We'll likely get out next update on his status when coach Stan Van Gundy addresses the media at approximately 6:30 pm EST. However, Bullock did tell Van Gundy earlier in the day that he plans on playing. Avery Bradley (groin), Stanley Johnson (hip), and Luke Kennard (thumb) are also considered "50/50" to play Friday vs. Washington.
