Joel Embiid Headshot

UPDATE: Joel Embiid (knee) has returned to Friday's game.

Embiid went to the locker room without any help, so as first reported, he is not seriously injured, and it is a great sight to see him return to the game.

James Loney Headshot

Rangers signed James Loney to a minor league contract.

Loney hit .265 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 100 games for the Mets in 2016. Loney remains a better real life player than a fantasy option, as he has always been a light hitter. He will not be much help in fantasy if he makes the big club for the Rangers.

Brett Eibner Headshot

Brett Eibner was designated for assignment.

This move was made to make room for newly signed Santiago Casilla to the big club. Eibner hit just .193 last season, and does not figure to make any impact in fantasy.

James Henderson Headshot

Cubs signed Jim Henderson to a minor league contract.

The veteran is getting an invite to Spring Training, and could seriously challenge to be a veteran presence in the Cubs bullpen. No need to target him in fantasy just yet.

Joel Embiid Headshot

Joel Embiid is headed to the locker room with a knee injury.

The word is the injury is not believed to be serious, and he was able to jog to the locker room. He figures to come back out and play, yet he is already being handled with kid gloves.

Martellus Bennett Headshot

Martellus Bennett (knee) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Bennett has not lived up to expectations since Gronk was declared done for the season. Still it is hard to not look to him as an option in fantasy since he has one of the best to ever go under center throwing him the ball. Especially with options dwindling, Bennett will play and figure to be a top option.

Ryan Anderson Headshot

Update: Ryan Anderson is now starting on Friday.

Well, that escalated quickly. Anderson was originally said to be coming off the bench, but he is penciled in as the starter. The problem still remains that it is unclear if he will be able to play his normal minutes.

Ryan Anderson Headshot

Ryan Anderson will come off the bench on Friday.

Anderson is dealing with an illness, and it is unclear how many minutes he will be able to go. If he is limited, Sam Dekker figures to be the main beneficiary. Unless there is more information before game time about Anderson's role, this could be a situation to stay away from.

Garrett Temple Headshot

Garrett Temple is starting on Friday.

Temple will get starters minutes, but he does not do enough to be considered an option. The Kings play the Grizzlies Friday, and they are 7th best in the league in points allowed to the shooting guard spot.

James Ennis Headshot

James Ennis is starting for the Grizzlies on Friday,

Ennis will earn additional minutes in place of Chandler Parsons who is getting Friday night off to rest. Even though he will figure to get starters minutes, he does not do enough to warrant consideration.
