    Aaron Gordon (hip) and Nikola Vucevic (hand) will start, but won't play "heavy" minutes Thursday

    Gordon and Vucevic have both officially been cleared to play and will start in Thursday's game against the New York Knicks but, according to Orlando Magic head coach Frank Vogel, neither will see heavy minutes in their first game back following extended injury absences. Gordon and Vucevic have missed eight and 23 consecutive games, respectively, due to their aforementioned ailments, so their return to the starting lineup will impact the Magic's rotation significantly and send both Mario Hezonja and Bismack Biyombo back to the bench to resume reserve roles. However, Vogel did also mention that he plans to continue utilizing Hezonja as an integral part of the frontcourt rotation and expects him to log time at power forward and small forward in the second unit.

    Brooklyn Nets

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Caris LeVert (knee) remain out for Thursday

    Hollis-Jefferson was a full participant in Wednesday's practice but has still been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Charlotte Hornets due to a strained right groin that has now forced him to miss 11 consecutive games, while Caris LeVert will also remain sidelined for a fifth consecutive game because of a sprained right knee, despite being a limited participant in practice. While the duo will be unavailable for tomorrow's contest, Brooklyn Nets' head coach Kenny Atkinson is hopeful that each can return to the lineup for Monday's game. Atkinson also revealed during his post-practice media availability that he plans to play Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell alongside each other in the backcourt more often, though he would not go as far to say that Russell would rejoin the starting lineup, at least at this point in time. Additionally, with Hollis-Jefferson and LeVert off the court this season, Dinwiddie has led the Nets with a +2.2% usage rate differential, good for a 26.2% usage rate overall, while Russell has seen his production spike to 1.23 fantasy points per minute on DraftKings and 1.19 on FanDuel in this scenario as well.

    Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris (bruised foot) will start Thursday

    Harris has officially been cleared to play and will start in Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks after previously being listed as probable on the Denver Nuggets' injury report with a bruised right foot. Meanwhile, Jamal Murray has been removed from the injury report and will start following his initial probable designation due to a sore chest. Murray was listed as questionable prior to Tuesday's win with the same ailment and was able to log 37 minutes, so the team was more than likely just taking a cautious approach by listing him as probable on Wednesday's original injury report. The Nuggets will have also have shorter bench than normal for tonight's contest, as Torrey Craig, Kenneth Faried, and Richard Jefferson did not travel with the team to Milwaukee and have effectively been ruled out. However, their absences won't have any impact on head coach Mike Malone's rotation since the aforementioned trio are typically DNP-CDs on most nights.

    Channing Frye (personal) ruled out Thursday

    Frye currently not with the team and has officially been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves as he tends to a personal matter. Frye was not originally listed on the Los Angeles Lakers' injury report and his status was not previously known since the Lakers did not hold a shootaround this morning on the second night of a back-to-back set. Frye finally made his Lakers debut in Wednesday's loss but was only the beneficiary of 11 minutes in the frontcourt due to the blowout loss. So, needless to say, his absence won't have any effect on head coach Luke Walton's recent rotations, and he figures to continue utilizing the same eight-man rotation that features Isaiah Thomas, Kyle Kuzma, and Corey Brewer off the bench.

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Jusuf Nurkic (back, calf, oblique) will start Wednesday

    Nurkic has officially been cleared to play and will suit up for Wednesday's game against the Golden State Warriors, according to head coach Terry Stotts, after previously being listed as questionable on the Portland Trail Blazers' injury report with a sore lower back, strained right calf, and right oblique injury that forced him to exit Sunday's loss in the third quarter. Nurkic managed to log just 13 minutes in that contest, which enabled Ed Davis to see 28 minutes off the bench and easily exceed salary-based expectations in the process. If Nurkic ends up being limited, Davis could find himself in the same ballpark in terms of minutes once again, while Zach Collins and Meyers Leonard could step into extended roles off the bench, though neither will see a big enough increase in playing time to become relevant for daily fantasy formats.
