Trevor Plouffe Headshot

Trevor Plouffe will serve as the team's primary third baseman this season.

Ryon Healy will move to first base and designated hitter, which opens up the door for Plouffe to be the everyday man at the hot corner for Oakland. Plouffe hit 12 homers last season and he's not exactly walking into a hitter-friendly ballpark. If he can stay healthy, he will justify a late round selection, but don't expect this guy to put up 30 or even 25 home runs for your fantasy team this season. It just won't happen.

Michael Gbinije Headshot

Michael Gbinije (arm) did not play Wednesday.

Gbinije sat out with a forearm issue that has actually kept him off the court for approximately two weeks. The medical team will continue to work with him to get him back on the court.

Jodie Meeks Headshot

Jodie Meeks will have an MRI on his dislocated right thumb Thursday.

Meeks dislocated his right thumb and rightfully so, he will be going for an MRI tomorrow. The results of the MRI will give us a better picture of how long Orlando could potentially be without his services.

Arron Afflalo Headshot

Arron Afflalo will start Wednesday against the Pacers.

Ty Lawson is unavailable to play, so the Kings front court is a bit thin. Expect Afflalo to get some good run in tonight's game. He's nothing more than a DFS punt play, however.

Avery Bradley Headshot

Celtics coach Brad Stevens says he could see Avery Bradley missing more time with sore Achilles.

An Achilles injury can linger if not dealt with properly from the beginning. Expect Stevens and the Celtics to be cautious with Bradley, as he is crucial to the team's long-term goals. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.

Greg Holland Headshot

Greg Holland could make a decision on his new team within the next week.

Holland missed all of last season after getting Tommy John, but he's going to be ready to go this season. He is the best closer still on the market. Holland had 46 or more saves in both 2013 and 2014 and if he can return anywhere near that form, his suitor is going to be extremely happy. He's worth a late round flier in your drafts.

Jodie Meeks Headshot

UPDATE: Jodie Meeks has a dislocated right thumb and will not return.

This is by no means a minor injury and Meeks will likely be sidelined for an extended period of time. Expect a timetable to come forth in the coming days.

Neftali Feliz Headshot

Brewers and Neftali Feliz have yet to finalize an agreement.

Feliz had a nice season last year for Pittsburgh, putting up a 4-2 record with two saves and 3.52 ERA. He struck out 61 batters in 53.2 innings of work, likely his best fantasy asset. He won't close in Milwaukee, but should be able to rack up plenty of holds.
