  • Malachi Richardson

    Sacramento Kings

    Malachi Richardson (partially torn right hamstring) out 4-6 weeks

    Richardson injured his hamstring with one minute left until All-Star break in garbage time against the Warriors last night. He was having his best game as a pro and was on the floor for 27 minutes. Richardson will join Omri Casspi, Garrett Temple, and Rudy Gay on the inactive list. Casspi is hopeful to be back after the All-Star break but the team has not provided an official update today. DeMarcus Cousins will continue to be their top player and hopefully Ty Lawson can come back from his injury after the break.

    Boston Celtics

    Gerald Green (bruised heel) questionable for tonight

    Green is considered questionable for tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls despite Green telling reporters after Wednesday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers that he would play on Thursday. However, according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, Green is questionable at best to play this evening. Jaylen Brown and Avery Bradley both remain sidelined with their respective injuries, meaning Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will continue to absorb the majority of the available guard minutes in their absence.

    Indiana Pacers

    Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) has been ruled out for tonight

    Allen will not play in tonight's game against the Washington Wizards after previously being listed as questionable on the Pacers' with right knee soreness that has now forced him to miss three consecutive games. With Thaddeus Young already ruled out, Kevin Seraphin will remain in the starting lineup at the power forward spot once again. Seraphin has seen at least 26 minutes of action in his previous two starts so he could be worth a look in tournaments on a minuscule two-game slate in what looks to be a decent matchup with the Washington frontcourt.

    Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) will be a game-time decision; to play off the bench if available

    Allen remains questionable and will be a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Washington Wizards with right knee soreness that has forced him to miss two consecutive games. With Thaddeus Young already ruled out, Kevin Seraphin will remain in the starting lineup at the power forward spot once again regardless of Allen's availability. Seraphin has seen at least 26 minutes of action in his previous two starts so he could be worth a look in tournaments in a decent matchup with Washington on a minuscule two-game slate if Allen is eventually ruled out.

    A few situations to monitor after the All Star Break

    As we head into the All Star Break here are a few situations that came across the news wire today that are worth keeping an eye on when play resumes (we'll of course update you with any critical updates).

    Avery Bradley - the Celtics guard is looking to return on February 24th against Toronto, the teams first game back after the All Star break. It'll be a huge boost for Boston on both ends of the court.

    Thabo Sefolosha - his name has popped up in recent trade rumors and there is a chance Atlanta will move him before the trade deadline, especially with him becoming a free agent this offseason.

    Lance Stephenson - the Timberwolves guard is out for at least two weeks with a severe ankle sprain and given that he's just on a 10 day contract there is a chance he could be without a team once he heals up.

    Malachi Richardson - the Kings guard will undergo a MRI on a hamstring injury he suffered last night.

    Thaddeus Young remains OUT for Pacers tonight; Lavoy Allen questionable

    This will be Young's seventh consecutive game as the team is letting him heal up through the All Star Break while his backup, Lavoy Allen, is listed as questionable and appears to be a game-time decision for the Pacers game tonight. If Allen can't go, Kevin Seraphin will be a viable (with limited upside) value option as the likely starter.

    Chicago Bulls

    Dwyane Wade OUT tonight for Bulls; Jimmy Butler will play

    Wade is being listed out due to an illness meaning Michael Carter-Williams should get another start at shooting guard. He's a viable option given the small two game slate but it's Jimmy Butler who should get the most usage for the team tonight and he will play without any minutes limitations. Nikola Mirotic has been listed as questionable but is expected to play tonight while Paul Zipser has been ruled out. Mirotic has had a diminished role in the Bulls rotation of late and is not a viable DFS play today.

  • Thabo Sefolosha

    Atlanta Hawks

    Thabo Sefolosha (groin) ruled out tonight

    Sefolosha will not play in tonight's game against the Los Angeles Clippers after previously being listed as questionable on the Hawks' injury report with a left groin injury that has now forced him to miss nine consecutive games. With Sefolosha officially ruled out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw the start at the shooting guard spot in his place once again, sliding Kent Bazemore down to small forward. However, given Sefolosha's low usage, none of the remaining starting five see a particularly substantial bump from his absence. Mike Dunleavy, Malcolm Delaney, and to some extent Taurean Prince should be expected to pick up additional minutes off the bench. Hardaway Jr. is a viable option on Wednesday's slate, as he has an exploitable individual matchup with J.J. Redick and the Clippers backcourt defense, and has performed extremely well in stretches with the starting unit.

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Ed Davis replaces Noah Vonleh in the Trail Blazers starting lineup tonight

    Devis will be inserted into the Blazers starting lineup for tonight's game against the Utah Jazz, sending Noah Vonleh back to the bench to resume a reserve role. The starting lineup change makes sense in a matchup with the Utah's big frontline and with Al-Farouq Aminu unavailable. Davis is coming off a double-double in the Blazers previous game and could be a viable tournament option on the late slate despite the less than ideal matchup with Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert in the Jazz's frontcourt.

    Mason Plumlee replaces Will Barton in Nuggets starting lineup tonight

    Chandler will not play in tonight's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after previously being listed as questionable on the Nuggets' injury report due to an illness that has now forced him to miss two consecutive games. Denver is already without Emmanuel Mudiay, Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, and Danilo Gallinari, so they are now extremely thin in the frontcourt with Chandler officially ruled out. The recently acquired Mason Plumlee will be available to play and will start at power forward tonight, sliding Juancho Hernangomez up to small forward and sending Will Barton back to the bench to resume a reserve role. It still remains unclear how much of a factor Plumlee will actually play in his Nuggets debut despite the starting nod. In the same scenario Monday, minus Plumlee, Hernangomez saw just over 43 minutes of action, putting him firmly in play for all formats this evening as the Nuggets' primary forward in the frontcourt. Will Barton (even off the bench), Nikola Jokic, and Jameer Nelson still round out the top options to target from this Denver squad.

    Brandon Jennings (sore left Achilles) ruled out tonight

    Jennings will not play in tonight's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a sore left Achilles despite not appearing on the Knicks' injury at any point throughout the day. His absence won't have any effect on the Knicks starting lineup but should raise the expected minute floor of Derrick Rose and allow Ron Baker to reenter the rotation to absorb some backup point guard minutes. Baker could be worth a look as a punt option on the late slate, but Rose looks to be the primary Knicks guard to target sans Jennings.

    Norman Powell replaces Jakob Poeltl in Raptors starting lineup

    Patterson will not play in tonight's game against the Charlotte Hornets after previously being listed as questionable on the Raptors' injury report with a left knee contusion that has now forced him to miss six consecutive games. Jakob Poeltl had been starting at power forward alongside Jonas Valanciunas the last two games, but he will be replaced by Norman Powell this evening, sliding DeMarre Carroll down to the power forward spot. Powell could be worth a look in tournaments and is a particularly intriguing option given his shooting guard eligibility. Additionally, Lucas Nogueira should continue seeing some extra run off the bench at both the power forward and center spots and he would seemingly be the preferred big man punt option, as he has consistently seen minutes in the mid-to-upper 20's in the most recent games Patterson has been sidelined.

    Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (sore back) will play against the Heat tonight

    Eric Gordon has missed the last two games due to a sore back but will be available off the bench tonight for the Rockets. Gordon is a scoring dependent guard that will need to play over 32 minutes to really exceed value. Gordon will likely lack much ownership on a full slate and could carry more risk than reward against the Heat. Sam Dekker will not be a viable option off the bench.

    Terrence Ross will not make his debut for the Magic tonight

    Terrence Ross will not be available for the Magic tonight. Jeff Green will replace Serge Ibaka in the starting lineup and Mario Hezonja will be used off the bench. Green is a viable punt option but since the game is against San Antonio, he'll likely be defended by Kawhi Leonard, not providing us much upside. Aaron Gordon is expected to play at PF but the team is just currently listing both Gordon and Green as forwards.
