Caris LeVert Headshot

Caris LeVert (rest) was ruled out for Monday.

Caris LeVert is 22-years old and has played in 23 career games but is resting for no good reason other than the coach says so. This is some sort of joke, and it's pretty mind boggling if we find out there is no sort of lingering injury or personal reason. LeVert has scored nine or more points in three straight games and scored in double-figures in two of the three. His minutes will likely be passed off to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Bojan Bogdanovic.

Brian Roberts Headshot

Brian Roberts (illness) was ruled out of Monday's game.

Seeing how Roberts has played in just 12 games this season while averaging just over five minutes per contest, this doesn't impact much. Kemba Walker will handle all of the minutes he can at point while Ramon Sessions backs him up.

Jamie Collins Headshot

Jamie Collins signed a 4-year $50 million extension with $26 million guaranteed.

Collins put together an excellent 2016 campaign with both the Browns and the Patriots and earned this money. He ended his season with 112 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions. The Browns need as much talent as they can get so they can finally rebuild properly and this is a good start. Collins will be an excellent IDP option heading into 2017, now that he'll take over the reigns as the Browns defensive leader.

Masahiro Tanaka Headshot

Masahiro Tanaka will not pitch for Japan in the World Baseball Classic.

This shouldn't surprise many as Tanaka hasn't pitched for his country since he began having problems with his elbow a few seasons ago. Tanaka had arguably his best campaign since coming over to the states in 2016 and that's mainly due because he was able to stay healthy. Tanaka will likely be on the same offseason regimen that he was on last year and that doesn't include the WBC. Tanaka comes into the 2017 campaign as a borderline top-20 fantasy baseball pitcher, we just need to see the strikeout numbers closer to where they were his rookie season, not his sophomore and junior years.

Bradley Beal Headshot

Bradley Beal (foot) is listed as questionable Monday.

In his last three games Beal has played 37, 38 and 38 minutes respectively so news of a foot injury is pretty new. That said, no injury news should actually be a surprise when it comes to Beal seeing how frequent they have become since he's entered the league. If Beal can't go, Kelly Oubre Jr. will likely start at shooting-guard in his place and will be a very solid DFS option. We've seen Oubre flash 30-point fantasy upside in extended minutes earlier this year, so if Beal is out, Oubre is a lock for all formats.

Mo Williams Headshot

The Denver Nuggets have claimed Mo Williams off waivers.

This is a peculiar move seeing how Denver already has a pretty big logjam at the guard position. Williams figures to have no real role with the Nuggets, similar to long-time veteran Mike Miller already has with the team. Williams slots in behind Mudiay, Nelson and Murray on the depth chart. With all that being said, it's expected that Denver will actually waive Williams for salary cap purposes.

Dez Bryant Headshot

Dez Bryant will replace Julio Jones in the Pro Bowl.

With the Falcons advancing to the Super Bowl, that means Julio Jones was needed to be replaced and Bryant is a great candidate. Dez finished the season playing 13 games while catching 50 passes for 796 yards to go along with his eight touchdowns.

Chris McCullough Headshot

Chris McCullough has been recalled from the D-League.

Though he was recalled from the D-league, he's still very unlikely to play any minutes. With Trevor Booker and Quincy Acy ahead of him on the depth chart then don't expect any fantasy relevance out of McCullough.

Emmanuel Mudiay Headshot

Emmanuel Mudiay is questionable for Tuesday.

After being ruled out of Sunday's game, Mudiay will likely be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game. If Mudiay is unable to play then Jameer Nelson will likely draw the start in his place.
