  • Rudy Gobert

    Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert (illness) officially out Wednesday

    Following an apparent misunderstanding on the part of head coach Quin Snyder at his pregame presser, Gobert has officially been downgraded from questionable anyway and won’t play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to an illness, while Emmanuel Mudiay will also be unavailable with the same illness, though he’s been a DNP-CD in seven of the previous nine games. In his absence, Tony Bradley will receive the starting nod at the center position, but he may not necessarily step directly into a starters’ minute workload considering he logged between 22-25 minutes in previous contests Gobert has been unavailable this season.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Dallas Mavericks

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) and Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) available to play Wednesday

    As expected, Kidd-Gilchrist and Cauley-Stein have been upgraded from probable and will be available to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, while Kristaps Porzingis, Dorian Finney-Smith, and Seth Curry were already ruled out with their respective ailments, the latter slated to miss a third straight contest. In Porzingis’ absence, Maxi Kleber is the overwhelming candidate to join the starting lineup, and he’s managed to record between at least 28 minutes as a starter in the four previous games Porzingis has been sidelined for rest, culminating in a stellar fantasy performance in just over 33 minutes of action in last Monday’s loss. On top of that, Kleber and Luka Doncic both own a minimum of a +1.3% increase in usage rate and are averaging at least +0.10 more fantasy points per minute with Porzingis, Curry, Jalen Brunson, and Dwight Powell off the court this season.

  • Bruce Brown

    Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown (ankle) out Wednesday

    Brown has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers due to a sprained right ankle, while Brandon Knight was already cleared to play after missing one game with a strained right hamstring. In Knight’s absence, Brown actually ended up receiving the starting nod at point guard, and he was stellar for fantasy purposes in 37 minutes of action in Sunday’s loss, whereas Khyri Thomas handled the backup point guard duties and amassed just under 13 minutes off the bench.

    Finney-Smith has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks due to a right hip injury, while Kristaps Porzingis and Seth Curry were already ruled out with their respective ailments. In Porzingis’ absence, Maxi Kleber is the overwhelming candidate to join the starting lineup, and he’s managed to record between at least 28 minutes as a starter in the four previous games Porzingis has been sidelined for rest, culminating in a stellar fantasy performance in just over 33 minutes of action in last Monday’s loss.

    Terry Rozier (illness) out Wednesday

    Despite being listed as probable on the Hornets’ injury report, Rozier has officially been ruled out of Wednesday’s matchup against the Miami Heat due to an illness, while Malik Monk remains sidelined as he serves a league-mandated suspension and is still out indefinitely. Rozier is coming off of a phenomenal fantasy performance in just under 44 minutes in Monday’s double-overtime loss, whereas Devonte’ Graham was nearly as effective and easily outperformed his salary-based expectations in 46 minutes of action. In Rozier’s absence, Cody Martin will join the starting lineup alongside Graham in the backcourt, but other than Graham’s increased playmaking responsibilities with the first unit, Cody Zeller has actually benefitted the most with Rozier off the court, as he has a 24.0% usage rate, a 16.3% rebound rate, and is averaging 1.27 DraftKings and 1.29 FanDuel points per minute in a 301.8 minutes sample size.

In Porzingis’ absence, Maxi Kleber is the overwhelming candidate to join the starting lineup, and he’s managed to record between at least 28 minutes as a starter in the four previous games Porzingis has been sidelined for rest, culminating in a stellar fantasy performance in just over 33 minutes of action in last Monday’s loss.

  • Kendrick Nunn

    Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn (illness), Tyler Herro (ankle), and Jae Crowder (concussion) listed available Wednesday

    Nunn, Herro, and Crowder have been upgraded from questionable on the latest Heat’s injury report and are available to play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets despite dealing with their respective ailments, while Jimmy Butler was listed out with a left big toe injury. In Butler’s absence, either Kelly Olynyk or Jae Crowder will be the leading candidates to join the starting lineup alongside Derrick Jones Jr. in the frontcourt, though even if Olynyk starts, Crowder will almost certainly see the most playing time of the two, especially with Herro returning from a lengthy injury layoff because of a sore left ankle. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Herro, but given the time that has elapsed, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him eased back into game action, which makes Goran Dragic the top player to target from this Heat squad with Butler unavailable since he has a 29.9% usage rate, a 29.7% assist rate, and is averaging 1.16 DraftKings and 1.07 FanDuel points per minute in a 245.6 minutes sample size since the traded deadline.

    Jimmy Butler (toe) listed out Wednesday

    Butler has officially been downgraded from questionable on the latest Heat’s injury report and is listed out for Wednesday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets due to a left big toe injury, while Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro, and Jae Crowder are all listed as available to play despite dealing with their respective ailments.

There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Herro, but given the length of his absence, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him eased back into game action, which makes Goran Dragic the top player to target from this Heat squad with Butler unavailable since he has a 29.9% usage rate, a 29.7% assist rate, and is averaging 1.16 DraftKings and 1.07 FanDuel points per minute in a 245.6 minutes sample size since the traded deadline.

  • Joel Embiid

    Philadelphia 76ers

    Joel Embiid (shoulder) will play Wednesday

    Embiid has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Wednesday’s matchup against the Detroit Pistons after missing five games due to a sprained left shoulder, while Ben Simmons will remain sidelined for at least three more weeks with a nerve impingement in his lower back. In his absence, Mike Scott started alongside Al Horford in the frontcourt at the power forward position, and he was extremely serviceable for fantasy purposes while logging at least 25 minutes in every game over that span. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Embiid, so he should be fine to handle close to a usual minute workload in tonight’s contest, making him an intriguing tournament option on FanDuel specifically since he has a 36.5% usage rate, 23.2% assist rate, 23.1% rebound rate, and is averaging 1.63 DraftKings and 1.61 FanDuel points per minute with Simmons off the court this season.

    Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier (illness) probable Wednesday

    Rozier has been added the Hornets’ injury report and is now probable for Wednesday’s matchup against the Miami Heat due to an illness, while Malik Monk remains sidelined as he serves a league-mandated suspension and is still out indefinitely. Rozier is coming off of a phenomenal fantasy performance in just under 44 minutes in Monday’s double-overtime loss, whereas Devonte’ Graham was nearly as effective and easily outperformed his salary-based expectations in 46 minutes of action. Rozier is still priced at a lower price point than Graham on daily fantasy sites, so he’ll remain a viable option in tournament formats on a six-game slate since he has a 23.9% usage rate, a 20.8% assist rate, and is averaging 0.93 DraftKings and 0.88 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

    Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and Seth Curry (ankle) listed out Wednesday

    As expected, Porzingis has been listed out on the Mavericks’ initial injury report and won’t play in Wednesday’s second leg of a back-to-back set against the Dallas Mavericks due to injury recovery for his troublesome left knee, while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Willie Cauley-Stein are listed as probable and Curry remains sidelined for a third consecutive game with a sprained left ankle. In Porzingis’ absence, Maxi Kleber is the overwhelming candidate to join the starting lineup, and he’s managed to record between at least 28 minutes as a starter in the four previous games Porzingis has been sidelined for rest, culminating in a stellar fantasy performance in just over 33 minutes of action in last Monday’s loss. On top of that, Kleber and Luka Doncic both own a minimum of a +1.3% increase in usage rate and are averaging at least +0.10 more fantasy points per minute with Porzingis, Curry, Jalen Brunson, and Dwight Powell off the court this season.

    Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton (ankle) out Tuesday

    Ayton has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Tuesday’s matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers due to a sprained left ankle that has now forced him to miss three consecutive games, while Cameron Johnson remains sidelined with mononucleosis and is still without a timetable for a return. In his absence, Aron Baynes has started the previous two contests at the center position and has been phenomenal for fantasy purposes in an average of 34.9 minutes over this span. Other than the increased role as a starter for Baynes, it’s been Ricky Rubio and Mikal Bridges that have benefitted the most with Ayton, Kelly Oubre, and Frank Kaminsky off the court, as they each own a minimum of a +1.5% increase in usage rate and are averaging at least +0.10 more fantasy points per minute over their normal season-long numbers.
