  • Eric Paschall

    Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall (hip) out Sunday

    Paschall has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Sunday’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings due to sore left hip that’s now forced him to miss two games, while Draymond Green will return from a one-game absence for rest purposes. Head coach Steve Kerr opted to utilize Kevon Looney as a false starter in place of Paschall at power forward in Friday’s loss, but he was still limited to just 18 minutes, so the available frontcourt playing time that isn’t allocated to Green should be absorbed by Marquese Chriss and Omari Spellman this evening. None of the Warriors starters see a significant boost with Paschall off the court, but D’Angelo Russell does lead the way with a 33.2% usage rate, a 30.1% assist rate, and is averaging 1.23 DraftKings and 1.15 FanDuel points per minute in a 207.4 minutes sample size.

    Paul Millsap (quad) out Sunday; Jamal Murray (back) will play

    Millsap has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Sunday’s matchup against the New York Knicks due to right quad tightness that has already forced him to miss two games, while Murray will give it a go, as expected. In Millsap’s absence, Jerami Grant ended up receiving the start at power forward, and he was more than serviceable for fantasy purposes in just under 32 minutes of action in Saturday’s win. Torrey Craig led the reserves with 23 minutes off the bench in that contest, and Juancho Hernangomez and Michael Porter Jr. were limited to just under 16 minutes combined. Other than Grant’s increased minute load, Nikola Jokic has been the other beneficiary with Millsap off the court, as he owns a 29.7% usage rate and is averaging 1.47 DraftKings and 1.41 FanDuel points per minute in a 201.6 minutes sample size.

  • Al Horford

    Philadelphia 76ers

    Al Horford (knee, hamstring) will play Sunday

    Horford has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Sunday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets after missing two games due to a sore left knee and left hamstring tightness, while Joel Embiid was already ruled out with an upper respiratory infection. In Embiid’s absence, Mike Scott figures to draw a third straight start at power forward, and he’s been serviceable from a fantasy perspective in an average of 25.9 minutes over the last two games. However, the backup center role is now a bit more cloudy with Horford able to suit up since Norvel Pelle racked up 12 minutes ahead of Kyle O’Quinn, who only logged five minutes in Friday’s win. Unsurprisingly, Horford and Tobias Harris have been the primary beneficiaries with Embiid off the court this season, as each of them sees a minimum of a +2.1% usage rate increase and average at least +0.20 more fantasy points per minute over their season-long numbers.

    Lebron James (elbow) will play Sunday

    James has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Sunday’s matchup against the Atlanta Hawks despite dealing with a right elbow contusion, while Anthony Davis, Avery Bradley, and Rajon Rondo are all available to play, as expected, after originally being listed as probable on the Lakers’ injury report. Head coach Frank Vogel already confirmed that Bradley and Rondo will have their minute restrictions increased to 25 minutes in tonight’s contests, though that doesn’t necessarily guarantee either player comes close to that mark this evening. As always, James will be a viable tournament option on tonight’s four-game slate, as he owns a 32.7% usage rate, a 49.0% assist rate, and is averaging 1.55 DraftKings and 1.50 FanDuel points per minute on the season.

    Joel Embiid (illness) officially out Sunday

    As expected, Embiid has been downgraded from doubtful and won’t play in Sunday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets due to an upper respiratory infection, while Al Horford remains a game-time decision with a sore left knee and left hamstring tightness. Regardless of Horford’s status, Mike Scott figures to draw a third straight start at power forward, and he’s been serviceable from a fantasy perspective in an average of 25.9 minutes over the last two games. However, the backup center role is a bit more cloudy if Horford is able to suit up since Norvel Pelle racked up 12 minutes ahead of Kyle O’Quinn, who only logged five minutes in Friday’s win.

    Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (hand) out Sunday

    Batum has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Sunday’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers due to left-hand discomfort, while P.J. Washington and Marvin Williams were already previously ruled out with their respective ailments. Head coach James Borrego has now utilized a condensed rotation in three straight games, and every starter other than Bismack Biyombo logged more than 35 minutes in Friday’s win, which limited Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Martin, and Malik Monk to reduced roles off the bench. Kidd-Gilchrist should theoretically have a decent minute floor with both Washington and Williams unavailable, but that projection got a bit dicier when Borrego decided to go with a massive starting lineup consisting of both Biyombo and Cody Zeller this evening.

    Paul Millsap (quad) questionable Sunday; Jamal Murray (back) probable

    Millsap has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup against the New York Knicks due to right quad tightness that has already forced him to miss one game, while Murray is probable with thoracolumbar soreness. In his absence, Jerami Grant ended up receiving the start at power forward, and he was more than serviceable for fantasy purposes in just under 32 minutes of action in Saturday’s win. Torrey Craig led the reserves with 23 minutes off the bench in that contest, and Juancho Hernangomez and Michael Porter Jr. were limited to just under 16 minutes combined.

  • Nikola Vucevic

    Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic (ankle) available to play Sunday

    Vucevic has officially been upgraded from questionable and will be available to play in Sunday’s matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans after missing 11 games due to a sprained ankle. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Vucevic, but given the nature of the injury, it wouldn’t be surprising if Orlando decides to ease him back into games. However, the mere presence of Vucevic in the rotation will severely limit the playing time of Khem Birch and may even relegate him from the rotation despite starting every game at the center position while Vucevic was sidelined. Unless given the all-clear on his expected playing time, Vucevic will be a difficult player to target in daily fantasy formats, even though he has a 25.4% usage rate and is averaging 1.31 DraftKings and 1.29 FanDuel points per minute on the season.

    Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond (eye) out Saturday; Luke Kennard (knees) available to play

    Despite head coach Dwane Casey saying Drummond was expected to play, he’s officially been ruled out of Saturday’s matchup against the Houston Rockets due to left eye inflammation, while Kennard will be available to play. With Drummond unable to suit up, his potential replacement in the starting lineup is a bit tough to project, but Markieff Morris, Christian Wood, and possibly even Thon Maker figure to benefit from increased playing time. Blake Griffin has only played 57.5 minutes with Drummond off the court this season, but he should theoretically see a substantial increase in his usage and rebounding rates. However, Derrick Rose has thrived without Drummond, as he owns a 34.0% usage rate, a 55.3% assist rate, and is averaging 1.54 DraftKings and 1.52 FanDuel points per minute in a 190.1 minutes sample size.

    Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo will start for Eric Bledsoe (shin) on Saturday

    Antetokounmpo will play in Saturday’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers despite dealing with a sore right quad tendon. Antetokounmpo was able to play through his injury in Friday’s win, but he logged just 27 minutes because of foul trouble before the starters were pulled with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. As for Eric Bledsoe’s absence, Donte DiVincenzo will receive the start alongside Wesley Matthews in the backcourt, even tho George Hill replaced Bledsoe in the third quarter of yesterday’s contest and went on to play over 18 minutes in the second half. Other than Hill, the main beneficiaries with Bledsoe off the court have been Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez, as they each own a minimum of a +5.0% increase in usage rate and average at least +0.09 more fantasy points per minute over their season-long numbers.

    Paul Millsap (quad) out Saturday

    Millsap has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Saturday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a strained right quad. Head coach Mike Malone didn’t disclose who would replace Millsap in the starting lineup, but Jerami Grant is by far the leading candidate and will be in line for extended playing time regardless of Malone’s lineup decisions. Millsap exited in the early stages of the third quarter in Thursday’s win, which enabled Grant to log 31 minutes in relief, and he was phenomenal for fantasy purposes in the second half of the aforementioned contest. Other than Grant’s increased minute load, Nikola Jokic has been the other beneficiary with Millsap off the court, as he owns a 30.9% usage rate and is averaging 1.38 DraftKings and 1.33 FanDuel points per minute in a 166.7 minutes sample size.
