Markieff Morris Headshot

Morris is expected to be limited to around 24 minutes of playing time during Sunday's matchup with the Raptors, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

Morris missed the first seven games of the season following offseason sports hernia surgery and with the Wizards heading into a back-to-back set, they'll attempt to limit Morris' overall workload to avoid additional strain on the previous injury. That being said, fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere for power forward options until Morris is on a full workload.

Jamie Meder Headshot

Meder (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

The out designation could signal long-term ailment for Meder, and he'll have one week to recover before Week 12's matchup with the Bengals. Expect more updates on this injury when the Browns resume practice on Wednesday, and Larry Ogunjobi will fill in for the time being.
2:15 pm (EST)
Marshon Lattimore Headshot

Lattimore sustained an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Lattimore would represent a huge loss for the Saints defense should he be unable to return. New Orleans is already without safety Kenny Vaccaro (groin), and De'Vante Harris and P.J. Williams will see increased workloads if Lattimore remains out.
2:14 pm (EST)
Tim Frazier Headshot

Frazier will start at point guard for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

The Wizards are set to be without John Wall on Sunday, as he's dealing with a sore knee. That allows Frazier to pick up the start in his place, meaning a temporary uptick in his playing time and fantasy value. In his lone start earlier this season, Frazier posted four points, two rebounds and eight assists across 31 minutes. Frazier should be an intriguing cheaper point guard option for Sunday's DFS slate.
2:14 pm (EST)
Sven Baertschi Headshot

Baertschi scored his seventh goal of the season and tacked on a helper in Saturday's overtime loss to the Blues.

Baertschi is having a great season, managing 15 points in 20 contests. The top line that also includes Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser has been responsible for a huge portion of the team's offense this season and Baertschi has chipped in with seven tallies. What's taken the sniper to new fantasy levels this season is his role with the man advantage, as the sniper has already doubled his previous career high in power-play goals. The 23-year-old is being consistent enough to warrant a look in almost all fantasy settings.
2:12 pm (EST)
Terrell McClain Headshot

McClain injured his toe against the Saints on Sunday and is questionable to return.

McClain has rarely logged a full workload this season, only accruing 19 tackles (16 solo) and two sacks through nine games. Having a strong threat on the edges is important against a red-hot Saints' offense that features two top-tier running backs and QB Drew Brees. Until McClain can return, expect Anthony Lanier to take over his duties on the Redskins' defensive front.
2:10 pm (EST)
Gabriel Carlsson Headshot

Carlsson was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Sunday after being recalled earlier in the day.

The young Swede's recall was apparently made for the sole purpose of practicing with the NHL squad Sunday, but he'll return to the AHL to continue playing in games.
2:10 pm (EST)
Clay Matthews Headshot

Matthews is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens with a groin injury, Jason Wilde of reports.

Matthews had his first sack since Week 4 prior to exiting with the injury. Ahmad Brooks and Kyler Fackrell should see increased reps at outside linebacker if Matthews is unable to return Sunday.
2:08 pm (EST)
John Wall Headshot

Wall (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

Wall is dealing with a sore left knee and after testing it out during pregame warmups Sunday, the team felt it was in his best interest to take the game off. With the Wizards currently going into a back-to-back set and also playing three games in the next four days, it wouldn't be surprising if Wall eventually sat out once again Monday, though for now, he can be considered questionable for that contest. Tim Frazier should pick up the start at point guard, while Bradley Beal should see his usage rise a bit in the backcourt and could also act as the primary ball-handler at times.
2:08 pm (EST)
Xavier Rhodes Headshot

Rhodes is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams due to a calf injury.

Rhodes has been a consistent lock-down corner for the Vikings, compiling 27 tackles (20 solo) and five pass breakups this season. If he's unable to return, Mackensie Alexander and Terence Newman will slot in at cornerback and try shutting down QB Jared Goff and the explosive Rams' offense.
