  • Patrick Beverley

    LA Clippers

    Patrick Beverley (groin) officially out Friday

    As expected, Beverley won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the Miami Heat due to a sore right groin that has now forced him to miss two games, while Paul George will miss an eighth straight game with a strained left hamstring. With Beverley sidelined for Wednesday’s loss, Lou Williams ended up receiving the start alongside Landry Shamet in the backcourt, but he was rather unspectacular from a fantasy perspective in just under 35 minutes of action. Kawhi Leonard was also sidelined for this contest, so his return to the starting lineup will send Terance Mann back to the bench following an irrelevant 15-minute spot start for the rookie forward. Given the nature of the Clippers rotation, Williams spends plenty of time on the court without Beverley and George, and he’s been phenomenal in these minutes, as he owns a 31.2% usage rate, 34.0% assist rate, and is averaging 1.30 DraftKings and 1.22 FanDuel points per minute in a 593.5 minutes sample size.

  • Steven Adams

    Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams (ankle) out Friday

    Adams has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the Atlanta Hawks due to a sprained left ankle that has now forced him to miss two consecutive games, while Terrance Ferguson is still away from the team and Abdel Nader remains sidelined with a sprained left ankle. In Adams’ absence, Nerlens Noel received the start at the center position and was relatively solid from a fantasy perspective in just under 30 minutes of action in Wednesday’s win. Prior to that contest, Noel had played fewer than 22 minutes in the two games since returning from a lengthy injury layoff, but he is still easily the preferred target for all daily fantasy formats over Mike Muscala, as he has a 15.3% rebound rate, 6.8% block rate, and is averaging 1.13 DraftKings and 1.22 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

  • Tony Snell

    Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell (illness) listed out Friday

    Despite not being listed on the injury report, Snell is listed out on the Pistons media notes and won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies due to an illness, while Andre Drummond and Bruce Brown were already ruled out with their respective ailments. The absences of Brown and Frazier in Wednesday’s blowout win immediately thrust Reggie Jackson into the backup point guard role behind Derrick Rose in his first game back from an extended injury layoff, and he was phenomenal for fantasy purposes in just 19 minutes of action, but head coach Dwane Casey already confirmed to reporters that Jackson will have a similar minute restriction in tonight’s contest. Other than Thon Maker and Christian Wood’s increased playing time, Derrick Rose has been the clear beneficiary with Drummond, Brown, and all the injured Pistons off the court, as he owns a 34.9% usage rate, 54.5% assist rate, and is averaging 1.48 DraftKings and 1.44 FanDuel points per minute in a 218.1 minutes sample size.

    Andre Drummond (lip) and Bruce Brown (illness) out Friday; Tim Frazier (illness) available

    Drummond and Brown have officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies due to their respective ailments, while Tim Frazier will be available to play after missing one game with an illness. The absences of Brown and Frazier in Wednesday’s blowout win immediately thrust Reggie Jackson into the backup point guard role behind Derrick Rose in his first game back from an extended injury layoff, and he was phenomenal for fantasy purposes in just 19 minutes of action, but head coach Dwane Casey already confirmed to reporters that Jackson will have a similar minute restriction in tonight’s contest.

  • Jaylen Brown

    Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (ankle) out Friday

    Despite telling reporters at shootaround that he is going to try to play, Brown has officially been ruled out of Friday’s matchup against the Orlando Magic due to a sprained right ankle that has now forced him to miss two consecutive games, while Jayson Tatum was already ruled out with a right groin strain he sustained in the third quarter of Wednesday’s blowout win. In Brown’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 29 minutes of action last time out. Among the healthy Celtics starters, Kemba Walker has benefitted the most with Tatum off the court this season, as he owns a 31.4% usage rate, a 23.9% assist rate, and is averaging 1.28 DraftKings and 1.23 FanDuel points per minute in a 276.5 minutes sample size.

  • Lauri Markkanen

    Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) out Friday

    Despite being listed as probable on the Bulls injury report, Markkanen won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings due to a stress reaction in his right pelvis, while Wendell Carter Jr., Daniel Gafford, and Otto Porter Jr. all remain sidelined with their respective ailments. Markkanen underwent an MRI on Thursday’s morning that revealed the aforementioned stress reaction, and he is expected to make a full recovery in four-to-six weeks. In his absence, Thaddeus Young will likely assume the starting power forward role in tonight’s contest, and his minutes have been limited of late with head coach Jim Boylen’s hesitancy to play him alongside Markkanen in the frontcourt but will obviously no longer be an issue. Additionally, Young is averaging 0.94 DraftKings and 0.92 FanDuel points per minute with Markkanen and the other injured Bulls off the court this season, making him an elite value option on tonight’s 10-game main slate.

    Aron Baynes (hip) officially out Friday

    As expected, Baynes won’t play in Friday’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs due to a sore left hip that has now forced him to miss four games, while Cameron Johnson remains sidelined with a right quad contusion. In their absences, head coach Monty Williams has mostly been utilizing the frontcourt combination of Dario Saric and Deandre Ayton, and Ayton has logged at least 35 minutes in three of the Suns previous four games, the one anomaly being Wednesday’s blowout loss where he logged just over 30 minutes of action.

  • Anthony Davis

    Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute) will play Thursday

    Davis has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Thursday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets despite continuing to deal with a Gluteus Maximus contusion, while JaVale McGee was a late addition to the Lakers injury report and won’t play because of an illness. In his absence, Dwight Howard will receive the starting nod at the center position, and he should have a significantly higher minute floor than normal with Davis manning the four spot for a majority of his minutes, which could lead to Kyle Kuzma receiving a slight bump in playing time and Jared Dudley entering the frontcourt rotation. Davis isn’t exactly priced at a discount across daily fantasy sites, but he’s always in consideration for tournament formats since he has a 29.4% usage rate, a 14.3% rebound rate, and is averaging 1.45 DraftKings and 1.50 FanDuel points per minute on the season thus far.

  • C.J. McCollum

    Portland Trail Blazers

    CJ McCollum (ankle) out Thursday; Hassan Whiteside (groin) available to play Thursday

    McCollum has officially been downgraded from questionable and won’t play in Thursday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks due to a sprained left ankle that has now forced him to miss three consecutive games, while Whiteside will be available to play despite dealing with a groin contusion. Head coach Terry Stotts already confirmed that newly-acquired Trevor Ariza will start alongside Carmelo Anthony in the frontcourt, which means that one of Gary Trent Jr. or Anfernee Simons will head back to the bench to resume a reserve role after each has logged at least 35 minutes in the Blazers previous two games. Other than the potential for more playing time for Simons and Trent, it should come as no surprise that Damian Lillard has benefitted the most with McCollum and the other injured Blazers off the court this season, as he owns a 37.2% usage rate, a 33.8% assist rate, and is averaging 1.59 DraftKings and 1.46 FanDuel points per minute in a 133.9 minutes sample size since Carmelo Anthony made his Portland debut in mid-November.

    Washington Wizards

    Anzejs Pasecniks (ankle) will play limited minutes Thursday

    Pasecniks has officially been upgraded from questionable and will play in Thursday’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers after missing two games due to a sprained left ankle, while Rui Hachimura, Moritz Wagner, and Garrison Mathews all remain sidelined with their respective ailments and are without a timetable for their returns. Head coach Scott Brooks already confirmed with reporters that Pasecniks will only see limited minutes in his first game back, but it’s unclear if that’s because of the aforementioned ailment or because Ian Mahinmi, Thomas Bryant, and Davis Bertans are now healthy and absorbing a large portion of the available frontcourt minutes on a nightly basis.
