  • Ricky Rubio

    Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (ankle) will start Tuesday

    As expected, Rubio has officially been upgraded from probable and will start in Tuesday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks despite dealing with a right ankle injury, while Aron Baynes, Cameron Johnson, and Frank Kaminsky all remain out with their respective ailments. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Rubio, so he’ll more than likely be fine to handle his usual minute workload in tonight’s contest, and he’s logged at least 35 minutes of action in four of the Suns’ previous six games. Rubio has struggled a bit for fantasy purposes in recent contests, but his price is now reduced to reflect the aforementioned slump, and he’s consistently flashed tournament upside this season, as he owns a 20.1% usage rate, a 37.4% assist rate, and is averaging 1.07 DraftKings and 1.05 FanDuel points per minute on the year thus far.

  • Kristaps Porzingis

    Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (knee) will play Tuesday

    Porzingis will play in Wednesday’s second leg of a back-to-back set against the Phoenix Suns despite originally being listed as questionable on the Mavericks’ injury report because of his ailing left knee, while Luka Doncic remains probable once again with a sore right ankle. Doncic has received an injury designation for his troublesome ankle several times this season, so it’d be surprising to see his status downgraded closer to tipoff with the Mavericks likely just taking the cautious approach by including him on the injury report. Doncic continues to play at an MVP-level for Dallas this season, and he’ll be an even stronger fantasy option if Porzingis is sidelined, as he leads the team with a 39.1% usage rate, a 45.8% assist rate, a 17.5% rebound rate and is averaging 1.77 DraftKings and 1.66 FanDuel points per minute with Porzingis off the court.

  • Devonte' Graham

    Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham (illness) will start Tuesday

    Despite briefly being ruled out, Graham will now give it a go and start in Tuesday’s matchup against the New York Knicks despite dealing with an illness. This would have been the first game Graham had missed all season, but if he ends up being hampered by his aforementioned ailment, Dwayne Bacon or Malik Monk would appear to be the likeliest candidates to benefit from extra playing time, and Monk is coming off of a stellar fantasy performance in just under 34 minutes of action of the bench in Friday’s loss. Obviously, if Graham is able to play through the illness, he becomes a tremendous tournament option on an eight-game slate, as he still leads the Hornets with a 25.4% usage rate, a 35.2% assist rate, and is averaging 1.06 DraftKings and 0.99 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.

    Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) will play Tuesday

    As expected, Porter Jr. will play in Tuesday’s against the New Orleans Pelicans despite dealing with a sprained right ankle he sustained during Monday’s win, while Darius Garland was already ruled out for rest purposes on the second leg of a back-to-back set. Garland has yet to miss a game this season, so his potential replacement in the starting lineup is a bit difficult to peg down, but with Porter available, he’ll come off the bench and serve as a backup at both the shooting guard and small forward positions. This means Dante Exum will start alongside Collin Sexton in the backcourt with Brandon Knight still sidelined with an injury. Porter was on a minute restriction and only logged 16 minutes in yesterday’s contest, so even though he’s active, there will be plenty of playing time available for the likes of Exum and Matthew Dellavedova, but they’ve both averaged fewer than 0.71 DraftKings and 0.68 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

  • Kendrick Nunn

    Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (Achilles) out Tuesday

    Nunn has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Boston Celtics due to bilateral Achilles soreness that has now forced him to miss three consecutive games. With Nunn sidelined for Monday’s win, Tyler Herro ended up receiving the starting alongside Duncan Robinson on the wing, and he was relatively solid for fantasy purposes in 30 minutes of action, and he will more than likely start once again, but his minute floor won’t be quite as stable with Goran Dragic back in the fold to siphon away vacant backcourt minutes. It comes as no surprise that Jimmy Butler has benefitted the most with Nunn and Justise Winslow off the court this season, as he owns a 28.9% usage rate, a 28.4% assist rate, and is averaging 1.34 DraftKings and 1.35 FanDuel points per minute in a 406.5 minutes sample size.

    As expected, Tatum has officially been downgraded from doubtful and won’t play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Miami Heat due to a right groin strain, while Green has also been ruled out with a sore left knee. In Tatum’s absence, Marcus Smart will almost certainly remain in the starting lineup for at least one additional game, and he’s been relatively consistent for fantasy purposes of late following another solid performance in just over 36 minutes of action last time out. Among the healthy Celtics starters, Kemba Walker has benefitted the most with Tatum and Enes Kanter off the court this season, as he owns a 33.4% usage rate, a 23.9% assist rate, and is averaging 1.36 DraftKings and 1.31 FanDuel points per minute in a 286.9 minutes sample size.

    Philadelphia 76ers

    Joel Embiid (hand) and Zhaire Smith (ankle) available to play Tuesday

    Embiid has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Golden State Warriors after missing nine games due to surgery on his left hand, while Smith will be available to play despite dealing with a sprained left ankle he sustained during Saturday’s win. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Embiid, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he doesn’t see his usual minute workload in his first game back from a significant injury layoff. However, his return will still send one of Matisse Thybulle or Shake Milton to the bench to resume a reserve role, and head coach Brett Brown hinted during his pregame presser that Milton stick in the starting lineup for now with Josh Richardson still sidelined with a hamstring injury.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (shoulder) listed out Tuesday; George Hill (hamstring) available

    Antetokounmpo has been listed out on the latest Bucks injury report and won’t play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Washington Wizards due to a sore right shoulder, while Hill will be available to play despite dealing with a sore left hamstring. There haven’t been any announcements from the team or head coach Mike Budenholzer on who will replace Antetokounmpo in the starting lineup, but the three previous times Antetokounmpo has been sidelined this season, Ersan Ilyasova has started at power forward and averaged 26 minutes per game in those starts. Other than Ilyasova’s expected increase in playing time, Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton have been the clear beneficiaries with Antetokounmpo off the court this season, as they each own a minimum of a +7.4% increase in usage rate and are averaging at least +0.21 more fantasy points per minute over their normal season-long numbers.

    Darius Garland (rest) listed out Tuesday; Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) listed questionable

    Garland has been listed out on the latest Cavaliers’ injury report and won’t play in Tuesday’s second leg of a back-to-back set against the New Orleans Pelicans due to rest purposes, while Porter Jr. is listed as questionable with a sprained right ankle he sustained during Monday’s win. Garland has yet to miss a game this season, so his potential replacement in the starting lineup is a bit difficult to peg down, though if Porter is cleared to play, he’ll likely be the leading candidate to start at the shooting guard position.

    Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (heel) officially out Monday

    As expected, Capela has officially been downgraded from doubtful and won’t play in Monday’s matchup against the Utah Jazz due to a right heel contusion, while James Harden and Russell Westbrook were already ruled out for their respective reasons on the second leg of a back-to-back set. With Harden sidelined for Sunday’s loss, Eric Gordon ended up receiving the start alongside Westbrook in the backcourt, and he was relatively productive for fantasy purposes in just over 35 minutes of action, making him a likely candidate to remain the starting lineup with Harden sidelined this evening. As for Capela’s absence, Isaiah Hartenstein will more than likely receive a large portion of the playing time at the center position, despite not starting, after he averaged 30.4 minutes in his two most recent starts with Capela sidelined, which makes him an elite value option on tonight’s six-game slate since he is averaging 1.08 DraftKings and 1.11 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

Doncic has received an injury designation for his troublesome ankle several times this season, so it seems highly unlikely he would be subject to a minute restriction in tonight’s contest, and they’re currently have been any reports suggesting otherwise. Doncic continues to play at an MVP-level for Dallas this season, and he continues to lead the team with a 37.3% usage rate, a 46.3% assist rate, a 15.2% rebound rate and is averaging 1.69 DraftKings and 1.61 FanDuel points per minute on the year thus far.

    Noel has officially been upgraded from questionable and will be available to play in Monday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks despite dealing with a left Zygomatic arch injury, while Chris Paul was already ruled out and is currently not with the team due to personal reasons. There haven’t been any reports on who will replace Paul in the starting lineup, but with Terrance Ferguson still away from the team because of a personal matter, either Dennis Schroder or Hamidou Diallo will more than likely receive the starting nod alongside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in the backcourt depending on how head coach Billy Donovan prefers to stagger the minutes of Schroder and Gilgeous-Alexander this evening. Somewhat surprisingly, Schroder has benefitted the most with Paul off the court this season, as he owns a 30.2% usage rate, a 29.0% assist rate, and is averaging 1.07 DraftKings and 1.00 FanDuel points per minute in a 466.3 minutes sample size.
