  • Gary Harris

    Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris (personal) ruled out Thursday

    Harris has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t be available to play in Thursday’s matchup against the Golden State Warriors as he continues to be away from the team tending to a personal matter that has now forced him to miss two consecutive games. In his absence, Bol Bol ended up receiving the starting nod alongside Will Barton on the wing, but he was limited to just 16 minutes as a member of the starting lineup in Tuesday’s loss. Given the strength of head coach Mike Malone’s second unit, it’s difficult to imagine Bol seeing a significantly different minute allotment in tonight’s contest and expect PJ Dozier, JaMychal Green, and Monte Morris to pick up the remaining vacated minutes created by Harris’ unavailability.

  • Gordon Hayward

    Charlotte Hornets

    Gordon Hayward (hip) officially out Thursday

    As expected, Hayward has officially been downgraded from doubtful and won’t play in Thursday’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors due to a strained left hip. In his absence, Miles Bridges or one of the Martin twins are the likeliest candidates to join the starting lineup at small forward unless head coach James Borrego finally fully embraces his three-guard lineup by inserting LaMelo Ball into the first unit alongside Terry Rozier and Devonte’ Graham in tonight’s contest. However, either way, Ball should have a higher minute floor than normal and becomes an intriguing option for daily fantasy formats across the industry this evening.

    Gordon Hayward (hip) downgraded to doubtful Thursday

    Despite originally being listed as probable on the Hornets’ injury report, Hayward is now listed as doubtful for Thursday’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors due to a strained left hip. In his absence, Miles Bridges or one of the Martin twins are the likeliest candidates to join the starting lineup at small forward unless head coach James Borrego finally fully embraces his three-guard lineup by inserting LaMelo Ball into the first unit alongside Terry Rozier and Devonte’ Graham in tonight’s contest.

  • Alex Len

    Toronto Raptors

    Alex Len (personal) listed out Thursday

    Len is a late addition to the Raptors’ injury report and won’t be available to play in Thursday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets as he is currently away from the team tending to a personal matter. Len has been a starter for head coach Nick Nurse in name only over the last few games, so his absence won’t have too much of an impact on the rotation with Chris Boucher and Pascal Siakam absorbing a large portion of the available center minutes in most contests. However, it’s still certainly possible Nurse opts to just use Aron Baynes, who has recently been a DNP-CD, to fill Len’s minor starting role and keep the rest of the normal rotation intact.

  • Eric Gordon

    Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (leg) listed out Thursday

    Gordon has officially been downgraded from questionable and is now listed out on the Rockets’ injury report for Thursday’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs due to lower left leg tightness. This will leave Houston with just nine available players for tonight’s contest following yesterday’s blockbuster trade and the release of Bruno Caboclo earlier this afternoon. Christian Wood will now assume the alpha role on offense sans John Wall and James Harden, while Sterling Brown, David Nwaba, and Ben McLemore are the likeliest candidates to join the starting lineup. However, Jae’Sean Tate and Mason Jones will also see substantial playing time given the overall lack of depth on the current state of the Rockets’ active roster.

  • Eric Bledsoe

    New Orleans Pelicans

    Eric Bledsoe (eye) ruled out Wednesday

    Bledsoe has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers due to left eye irritation, while Zion Williamson was previously ruled out as he has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and may require a period of isolation away from the team. Additionally, with Lonzo Ball also unavailable, New Orleans will now be severely shorthanded in the backcourt with Bledsoe unable to suit up for tonight’s contest. In their absences, Nickeil Alexander-Walker will be poised to take on an increased role in head coach Stan Van Gundy’s rotation and will likely receive the starting nod at point guard, making him an intriguing value option across the daily fantasy industry this evening.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns

    Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) and Josh Okogie (hamstring) will start Wednesday

    As expected, Towns and Okogie have been upgraded from questionable on the Timberwolves’ injury report and will start in Wednesday’s matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies barring any setbacks during shootaround and pregame warmups. Towns has already admitted to reporters that his dislocated wrist isn’t fully healed, but he showed no ill effects in his return to the court this past weekend by logging 37 minutes of action in Saturday’s loss. Ed Davis was the odd man out of the frontcourt rotation in that contest, while Naz Reid and Jarred Vanderbilt combined for roughly 28 minutes filling in at the backup center spot and even playing alongside Towns at the power forward position for certain stretches of the game, so it’ll be interesting to see if that trend sticks with Okogie likely able to handle more minutes this time around.

  • Obi Toppin

    New York Knicks

    Obi Toppin (calf) available to play Wednesday

    Despite being listed out on the Knicks’ original injury report, Toppin has now been upgraded from probable and will be available to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets after missing all but one game this season due to a strained right calf. The newly-signed Taj Gibson will be available to make his season debut in tonight’s contest, but his exact role in head coach Tom Thibodeau’s rotations remains unclear, and Toppin likely finds himself first in line for playing time off the bench at the frontcourt positions given the premium of his draft capital over the fall. Toppin saw 23 minutes as a reserve in his lone game of the year, but it appears as if Thibodeau is in no rush to get him back in the mix right away without practicing, so his presence may not impact the rotation too significantly for now.

    Zion Williamson (COVID protocols) ruled out Wednesday

    Williamson has been added to the Pelicans’ injury report and won’t be available to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers as he’s entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and may require a period of isolation away from the team. Meanwhile, Eric Bledsoe remains questionable with right eye irritation, and Lonzo Ball was previously ruled out with a knee, so New Orleans could potentially be severely shorthanded in the backcourt if Bledsoe is unable to suit up for tonight’s contest. Even if this scenario weren’t to come to fruition, Nickeil Alexander-Walker will be poised to take on an increased role in head coach Stan Van Gundy’s rotation and makes for an intriguing value option across the daily fantasy industry this evening.

  • Al Horford

    Oklahoma City Thunder

    Al Horford (rest) listed out Wednesday

    Horford was included on the Thunders’ initial injury report and has been listed out for Wednesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers due to rest purposes on the second leg of a back-to-back set. The first time Horford was held out in a back-to-back situation, Isaiah Roby ended up receiving the starting nod at the center position and was stellar for fantasy purposes in 28 minutes of action as a member of the first unit. In that contest, Mike Muscala and Aleksej Pokusevski remained in relatively limited reserve roles as they each saw fewer than 20 minutes off the bench despite Horford’s unavailability.

    Despite still being listed as questionable on the Timberwolves’ injury report, head coach Ryan Saunders confirmed that he expects Towns and Okogie to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies barring any setbacks during shootaround and pregame warmups. Towns has admitted that his dislocated wrist isn’t fully healed, but he showed no ill effects in his return to the court by logging 37 minutes of action in Saturday’s loss.

    New York Knicks

    Obi Toppin (calf) upgraded to probable Wednesday

    Despite being listed out on the Knicks’ original injury report, Toppin has been upgraded to probable and appears to be on track to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets after missing all but one game this season due to a strained right calf. The newly-signed Taj Gibson will be available to make his season debut in tonight’s contest, but his exact role in head coach Tom Thibodeau’s rotations remains unclear, and Toppin likely finds himself first in line for playing time off the bench at the frontcourt positions given the premium of his draft capital over the fall. Toppin saw 23 minutes as a reserve in his lone game of the year, and if he logs anywhere near that in his return, it’s likely Mitchell Robinson, Kevin Knox, and possibly even Julius Randle, who’s among the league leaders in minutes played, see a reduction in playing time this evening.

    Houston Rockets

    Victor Oladipo (injury management) officially out Tuesday

    As expected, Oladipo has been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Tuesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors due to right knee injury management. Oladipo has yet to play in the second leg of a back-to-back since sustaining a season-ending injury during the 2019 season, so it isn’t all that surprising the Pacers’ medical staff opted to hold him out of tonight’s contest. In his absence, Edmond Sumner will surprisingly receive the start alongside Justin Holiday on the wing, but he still isn’t guaranteed to see a full starters’ minute workload with Aaron Holiday a likely candidate to receive extensive playing time off the bench with T.J. McConnell still away from the team as he tends to a personal matter.

  • Joe Ingles

    Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles (Achilles) ruled out Tuesday

    Ingles has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t be available to play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to right Achilles soreness that has now forced him to miss two of the last three games, while Derrick Favors is good to go even though the Jazz unnecessarily keeps listing him as probable with a knee issue leading up to every game. The absence of Ingles will create quite the hole in head coach Quin Snyder’s second unit, so look for Georges Niang to see a bump in playing time at the power forward position with Miye Oni possibly entering the rotation, while Jordan Clarkson should step into larger creation role off the bench, making him an intriguing tournament target in daily fantasy formats this evening.

    Eric Paschall (COVID protocols) ruled out Tuesday

    Paschall is a late addition to the Warriors’ injury report and won’t be available to play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers as he’s entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and may be subject to a period of isolation away from the team. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely his absence will benefit one individual player for daily fantasy purposes, so expect James Wiseman, Juan Toscano-Anderson, and possible even Kevon Looney to receive additional minutes in the frontcourt rotation this evening.
