T.Y. Hilton (Calf) Remains Week-to-Week
Wiggins and Teague have been listed as questionable for Monday’s second leg of a back-to-back set against the Phoenix Suns, while Karl-Anthony Towns and Shabazz Napier continue to be listed as probable due to their respective ailments, despite suiting up in each of the previous four games. Even in a blowout loss on Sunday night, both Wiggins and Teague managed to log close to a full workload in terms of minutes and weren’t even pulled until three minutes remained in the fourth quarter. So, they should be expected to be ready to go in tonight’s contest barring some sort of setback postgame or unforeseen cautiousness from the Timberwolves to hold them out this evening.
Jameis Winston (Broken Thumb) Expected to be Able to Play
Foster Moreau (Knee) is Out for the Season
Jets Sign WR Jeff Smith to the Active Roster
Colts Place Parris Campbell on Injured Reserve
Derrius Guice Ruled Out for Sunday
White is listed as probable for Monday’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors due to right hamstring tightness, while Hutchison remains out with a sprained right shoulder. White is coming off of a solid fantasy performance in 32 minutes of action in Sunday’s overtime loss, so he should be able to suit up for tonight’s contest if the Bulls’ injury designation is accurate. White ended up closing the fourth quarter and the game over Tomas Satoransky, which led to his increased minutes total, but it remains unclear if that will be a trend moving forward. White continues to have a solid rookie campaign, as he has a 23.9% usage rate and is averaging 0.87 DraftKings and 0.82 FanDuel points per minute on the season.
VanVleet is listed as questionable on the Raptors’ injury report for Monday’s matchup against the Chicago Bulls due to a right knee contusion. VanVleet was forced to exit Sunday’s loss midway through the second quarter, and he was replaced briefly by Rondae Hollis-Jefferson before Terence Davis subbed in to finish the half alongside Kyle Lowry in the backcourt. However, if VanVleet is unable to suit up, Norman Powell will more than likely receive the starting nod at the shooting guard position, and he would pretty regularly approach or exceed the 30-minute mark as a starter when Lowry was sidelined with an injury. Pascal Siakam has still been the main beneficiary with VanVleet off the court this season, as he owns a 33.3% usage rate and is averaging 1.32 DraftKings and 1.26 FanDuel points per minute in a 128.3 minutes sample size.
The Chiefs got some good news Monday, as Mahomes managed to avoid a break in his hand. It is bruised, but Mahomes has a chance to play this week. The Chiefs did admit they had to change their play calling once he was hurt, so the injury is bad enough to impact his grip.
Evans is currently considered doubtful to be able to play this week. He pulled his hamstring in the Bucs’ last game and is reportedly at risk of missing the rest of the season.
Smart has been added to the Celtics’ injury report and is now questionable for Monday’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to an eye infection, while Hayward went through shootaround and intends to play after missing a month with a fractured left hand. There haven’t been any reports of a potential minute restriction for Hayward thus far, so he’ll presumably be close to a full-go in tonight’s contests and has a solid chance to rejoin the Celtics starting lineup regardless of Smart’s availability. Barring an unforeseen limitation, Hayward will virtually be a “free square” on DraftKings, where he is mistakenly priced, as he owns a 22.9% usage rate, 20.2% assist rate, and is averaging 1.16 DraftKings and 1.11 FanDuel points per minute on the season.
Tate suffered a mild MCL sprain, an injury that is not considered serious. His status for this upcoming week has not been confirmed, but it sounds like he has a good chance to play.
