2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball Waiver Advice: Jan. 20

Ricardo Mathews Headshot

Ricardo Mathews (ankle) will play in Sunday's game.

Mathews has been suffering from an injury to his right ankle, which kept him sidelined for two games, but he's expected to play against New England on Sunday. The 29-year-old played in all 16 regular season games for the Steelers, starting five, and registered one sack and eight tackles.

Sammy Watkins Headshot

Sammy Watkins underwent another surgery on his foot from Dr. Robert Watkins. The team anticipates he’ll be ready for training camp

After playing just eight games this season due to a foot injury it appears as though Watkins had another procedure done on his foot recently. Multiple foot surgeries in such a short period of time are never a good sign but the Bills brass appears to believe that he'll be ready for training camp. With that being said, training camp is a long ways off so we'll just have to wait and see how Watkins recovers from the procedure. The former Clemson wideout caught just 28 passes for 430 yards and two scores this season and has played just 21 games over the past two years for Buffalo.

Jordy Nelson Headshot

Jordy Nelson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Nelson suffered two fractured ribs on a borderline hit during the Packers Wild Card Weekend win over the Giants and is currently suffering from an illness as well but he's considered to be questionable for Sunday's game. At this point, it's tough to see how Nelson would play so quickly after fracturing two of his ribs but with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, you never know if a guy will grit it out and play through the pain. If Nelson and Davante Adams are available to play for Green Bay, it would be a huge boost to the team's already prolific passing game.

Quinten Rollins Headshot

Quinten Rollins (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game.

Rollins has been sidelined for both of the Packers playoff games due to a concussion and it appears as though he will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game. Rollins has been reportedly close to clearing the league's concussion protocol, which he must do if he wants to play on Sunday. If Rollins is unable to suit up on Sunday, Herb Waters and Josh Hawkins would see a boost in playing time against a talented Falcons receiving corps.

Davante Adams Headshot

Davonte Adams is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Adams suffered a sprained ankle during the Packers win over the Cowboys and he's been listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons. With so much riding on this next game, it's hard to imagine that Adams would be held out unless the injury severely hampers his ability to cut and run effective routes. I'd expect Adams to be a game-time decision but it would be surprising if he didn't at least suit up and try to play on Sunday.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nikola Jokic (ankle sprain) is expected to play Saturday.

Jokic sprained his right ankle a couple of weeks ago and is still feeling sore but it expected to play on Saturday against the Clippers. The Serbian center has played in each of the Nuggets last four games despite the injury, scoring over 29 points in three of those games and recording a double-double in all four games. The Nuggets center has been absolutely on fire for the past month or so and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Danilo Gallinari Headshot

Danilo Gallinari is questionable for Saturday's game.

Gallinari ended up sitting out for the Nuggets 118-104 loss to the Spurs last night due to a lingering ankle injury and he is considered to be questionable for tomorrow's game against the Clippers. With Gallinari sidelined, Will Barton played 35 minutes last night and scored 18 points and notched seven assists, so if Gallinari can't go, Barton makes for an interesting daily fantasy play tomorrow.

P.J. Tucker Headshot

Suns are looking for a first-round pick in a P.J. Tucker deal.

Rumors have been floating around that the Clippers are interested in trading for the ten-year veteran and have offered a second-round pick for his services but it appears as though the Suns are going to hold out for an offer including a first-round pick. At this point, it's hard to see a team dealing that significant of an asset for a player that is nothing more than a depth piece but you never know if a team will get desperate or have an injury which causes the need for a player like Tucker. The ten-year veteran is averaging 6.2 points and 5.7 rebounds in just over 27 minutes played per game so far in 2016-17.

Darrell Arthur Headshot

Darrell Arthur (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game.

Arthur has missed the Nuggets past four games due to soreness in his left knee and it appears as though he's trending towards being a game-time decision for tomorrow's game against the Clippers. The 28-year-old has struggled to stay healthy this season, having played in just 17 games so far for the Nuggets.
