Cory Luebke Headshot

White Sox have agreed to a minor league contract with Cory Luebke,

Luebke will be 32 by the time the season starts and will begin 2017 in the minors with the Chicago White Sox. Luebke has appeared sporadically in the majors throughout his career and will likely play role of spot starter this season. Last year he gave up 9 earned runs in 8.2 innings pitched so he holds little fantasy value heading into the upcoming season.

Brandon Ingram Headshot

Brandon Ingram is expected to start Tuesday.

Ingram will get the start Tuesday night as Luol Deng is sidelined with a wrist injury. X-Rays were negative on Deng's wrist so there was no fracture. However, the Lakers have stated he would be out indefinitely so Ingram and Nick Young are in line for significant playing time.

Roman Quinn Headshot

Roman Quinn will likely open the 2017 season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Quinn is currently ranked as Philadelphia's 7th-best prospect and briefly got called up at the end of last season. He's gradually worked his way up the minor league system with the Phillies since being drafted in 2011, but the 23-year-old will likely start the year in Triple-A unless a major injury opens a spot for him on the big league roster. Regardless Quinn will likely get an opportunity to play in the majors at some point this season.

Will Barton Headshot

Will Barton is expected to start on Tuesday.

Barton gets the start in place of Gary Harris who is nursing an ankle injury. Barton becomes an intriguing DFS option moving forward if Harris is unable to play Thursday night against San Antonio. Barton could potentially see 30+ minutes of action Tuesday night.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris (ankle) will not play on Tuesday.

Harris is dealing with an ankle sprain so he won't suit up Tuesday night. Will Barton will get the start in his place. Harris suffered the injury Monday night against Orlando and will be given a chance to rest up on Tuesday. His next game could come Thursday against San Antonio, but it's a bit unclear how serious the injury is.

Luol Deng Headshot

Luol Deng will not play on Tuesday.

This injury is a bit of a mystery. Deng was spotted before the game with his hand/wrist heavily wrapped up. Nick Young and Brandon Ingram will likely split the playing time made available by Deng's absence Tuesday night. There's no word as of right now how serious the injury is for Deng or how long he may be out.

Eric Gordon Headshot

Eric Gordon is headed to the locker room with a right leg injury.

Gordon struggled to make it off the court during a timeout during the 3rd quarter. He leaves the game with 7 points, 1 assist, and 1 rebound in 19 minutes of action. With Gordon out, Patrick Beverley and K.J. McDaniels are candidates to see extra time. Long-term this could open up a lot of starting time for a bench player if Gordon needs to miss additional games. He's averaging over 30 minutes of action per night.

Tarik Black Headshot

Tarik Black will play Tuesday against the Nuggets.

Black sprained his left ankle in Sunday's game against the Pistons, but was able to participate in morning shootaround fully. He will slot in as the backup to starter Timofey Mozgov at center.

Pascal Siakam Headshot

Pascal Siakam started the second half Tuesday.

He had been in the doghouse with his coach recently, and there was talk about him being sent to the D-League to get in more playing time. It looks as though he is getting a chance to show he still belongs with the Raptors and a part of their front court rotation.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson will play Tuesday against the Nuggets.

Clarkson is dealing with a minor right ankle sprain. He felt good enough in the warmups to be able to play on Tuesday, and will serve as the backup point guard to D'Angelo Russell. He should see playing time in the low-to-mid 20 minute range against the visiting Nuggets.
