  • Paul Millsap

    Denver Nuggets

    Lineup update: Nuggets will start Campazzo, Porter Jr., Gordon, Millsap, and Jokic Wednesday

    The Nuggets are going to play a bigger lineup, as the backcourt injuries keep piling up for them. Paul Millsap will get the start in place of PJ Dozier, as the Nuggets will only start Campazzo as a true “guard”. Millsap is tough to play, but should have a higher floor and ceiling now that he’s starting. Austin Rivers and Shaquille Harrison are both likely due for a reduction in minutes as a result, while Campazzo should handle the ball more, along with Jokic.

  • Alec Burks

    New York Knicks

    Alec Burks (knee) available to play Wednesday

    Burks was upgraded from probable to available and will play against the Denver Nuggets. Burks should continue to play his minutes in the teens off the bench, with the upside for more as he starts to get healthier.

  • Aaron Holiday

    Indiana Pacers

    Lineup update: Pacers will start LeVert, Aaron Holiday, McDermott, Brissett, and Sabonis Wednesday

    Aaron Holiday gets the start in place of Edmond Sumner, and should be in line for more minutes as a result. McConnell usually comes in and plays more minutes off the bench, but there’s a chance that Holiday can see 30 minutes. Brissett stays in the starting lineup, with Goga coming in off the bench.

  • Nerlens Noel

    New York Knicks

    Nerlens Noel (ankle) and Norvel Pelle (ankle) available to play Wednesday

    As expected, Noel will be available to return from an ankle injury against the Denver Nuggets. Noel should start, moving Taj Gibson to the bench. Pelle is available as an emergency big more than anything. None of the frontcourt players are particularly appealing, especially in a tough matchup against the Nuggets.

  • D.J. Augustin

    Houston Rockets

    Status update: DJ Augustin may not play Wednesday

    Augustin may not play, according to beat report Jonathan Feigen. It was mentioned that Augustin could be considered “active” in order for the Rockets to have the minimum eight players to play. This means likely a couple more minutes for Kevin Porter Jr., and Avery Bradley and Armoni Brooks.

  • KJ Martin

    Houston Rockets

    Lineup update: Rockets will start Porter Jr., Bradley, Jeffries, Martin Jr., and Olynyk Wednesday

    The Rockets are starting the lineup that was projected for them; Olynyk moves to center, KJ Martin will start in place of Wood, and Jeffriess will start in place of Jae’Sean Tate. With only eight healthy bodies, the Rockets will have to get everything they can out of their starters, making Martin and Jeffries two of the best values on the slate. Olynyk and KPJ should have to shoulder the load and should be in line to produce as well.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Milwaukee Bucks

    Lineup update: Bucks will start Holiday, DiVincenzo, Tucker, Giannis, and Lopez Wednesday

    Giannis and Jrue were both cleared to play, and both will start against the Wizards. PJ Tucker will jump into the starting lineup, in place of Khris Middleton. It was expected to be Pat Connaughton, but Tucker will get the nod. He’s notorious for being awful from a per minute stance, so he shouldn’t be played, while Giannis and Jrue are both great plays now with no Middleton on the floor.

  • D'Angelo Russell

    Minnesota Timberwolves

    Lineup update: D'Angelo Russell will start in place of Ricky Rubio Wednesday

    Russell will move back into the starting lineup, in place of Rubio. Russell had been playing around 30 minutes off the bench, so now he has the upside to play in the mid thirties now that he has the start. Rubio was a tough play beforehand, but now that he’s coming off the bench, his floor is much lower.

  • Norman Powell

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Norman Powell (knee) ruled out Wednesday; Damian Lillard (foot) will play

    Powell was downgraded from questionable with a knee injury to out, and will miss the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. As expected, Lillard was cleared to play through his foot injury. Powell has averaged 36 minutes over the last four games, so his minutes will certainly need to be filled. Derrick Jones Jr. is a candidate to start, with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Nassir Little other options to start. Carmelo Anthony will likely end up playing more minutes for the team as well. From a production standpoint, CJ McCollum shows a good bump up in his usage and FPM; per CourtIQ, CJ averages 1.26 FPM with a 30.0% usage, up from his 1.17 FPM and 27.2% averages. Whoever gets the minutes may not be a viable play, as the production for the Blazers should concentrate around Lillard, McCollum, and Jusuf Nurkic, but the value plays for the Blazers may not produce well enough per minute to be viable value plays.

  • Anthony Gill

    Washington Wizards

    Lineup update: Anthony Gill will start for Rui Hachimura Wednesday

    Gill will get the start in place of Rui, a mild surprise as Davis Bertans was the expected starter in place of Rui. Gill hasn’t played the last two games, so there’s a chance he starts while ends up only playing a few minutes. We are projecting him for eighteen, and although he has upside for more, it’s a very volatile play as he could not play in the second half despite the start.

  • Evan Fournier

    Boston Celtics

    Lineup update: Celtics will start Walker, Smart, Fournier, Tatum, and Robert Williams Wednesday

    Fournier will get the start for Jaylen Brown, while Williams will get the start for Tristan Thompson. This was expected with both players out, and Williams is likely to be a great play now that he is starting and doesn’t have to compete for minutes at center. He’s a good center play, with upside to be great.

  • Louis King

    Sacramento Kings

    Status update: Louis King available to make Kings debut Wednesday

    According to coach Walton, King will be available to play after signing a two-way deal with the team a few days ago. It’s unclear how many minutes he’d play, if at all, but he may take a few minutes away from Justin James and Terrence Davis, but it’s certainly not clear how Walton wants to play it.

  • Harrison Barnes

    Sacramento Kings

    Harrison Barnes (adductor) and Chimezie Metu (back) ruled out Wednesday

    The Kings will have the same players available today as they will yesterday, as Barnes and Metu were both ruled out against the Indiana Pacers. Barnes was downgraded from doubtful with an adductor injury, while Metu was listed as questionable with a back injury. Barnes has missed the last fourgames with the injury, so we know that Maurice Harkless will start for him. Marvin Bagley will once again be one of the most popular options on tonight’s slate, as he played 30 minutes last game despite foul trouble and will have to continue to play big minutes as Metu’s absence further limits the frontcourt depth. Delon Wright should be the top option once again for the team, as he had a monster performance yesterday and should continue to produce, along with Bagley and Buddy Hield.

  • Khris Middleton

    Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton (knee) ruled out Wednesday

    Middleton was downgraded from doubtful with a knee injury to out and will miss the Bucks game against the Washington Wizards. Pat Connaughton will likely start in his place, although there’s a chance that it could be PJ Tucker. With no Middleton, Giannis and Jrue see good bumps per CourtIQ. Giannis averages 1.71 FPM with no Middleton on the floor, up from his 1.63 average, while Holiday averages 1.26 FPM, up from his 1.12 average. The extra minutes could help Connaughton, Donte DiVincenzo, and possibly Jeff Teague, but if Giannis and Jrue both play despite their probable tags, they’ll be the top options for the team.

  • D.J. Augustin

    Houston Rockets

    DJ Augustin (ankle) will play Wednesday; Christian Wood (ankle) and Danuel House Jr. (ankle) ruled out

    The Rockets will be getting one player back, but losing two, as they will only have eight healthy bodies against the Philadelphia 76ers. Wood and House were both downgraded from doubtful with their respective ankle injuries to out, while Augustin was upgraded from questionable with his ankle injury to available, and will play. With no Wood, House, and Jae’Sean Tate, as well as DJ Wilson ruled out due to the protocols, the Rockets will be even more decimated than they have been all year. Kelly Olynyk will start at center, while KJ Martin and DaQuan Jeffries should join the starting lineup in place of Tate and Wood. Due to the amount of bodies out, there’s no CourtIQ data with all the bodies out for the team. But the team will certainly run through Kevin Porter Jr. and Olynyk, with Martin likely playing the next most minutes for the team. KJ Martin is certainly the best value, but KPJ and Olynyk will both have to play heavy minutes and should be able to produce.
