Kyle Korver Headshot

Kyle Korver is starting the second half in place of the injured Kevin Love (back).

Korver, a 3-ball specialist, will get the start for the injured Kevin Love. Golden State is up by over 30 on Cleveland, which means this is an excellent opportunity for Korver to get acquainted with his new squad. The newest acquisition will be an excellent source of three-pointers the rest of the season.

Kevin Love Headshot

Kevin Love (back) has been ruled out for the second half of Monday's game.

Love continues to deal with some sort of injury and tonight it's his back that is acting up. With the Cavaliers getting absolutely pummeled by Golden State, there's no reason to risk injuring Love's back even more. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.

Jared Dudley Headshot

Jared Dudley (illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

Dudley hasn't played a significant minute since last "Festivus" so his illness and subsequent absence will hardly be noticed.

Brandon Knight Headshot

Update: Brandon Knight (wrist) ruled out Monday.

Knight's status was up in the air all day, so no one should be shocked by his late scratch. Continue to consider him day-to-day, with little fantasy upside when healthy however, as his standing on this team is rather insignificant.

Alex Len Headshot

Alex Len is in the starting lineup on Monday.

Len is filling in for Tyson Chandler who is dealing with some type of virus. Chandler will be considered day-to-day going forward, while Len is going to keep that starting job in the meantime. Consider him in DFS formats, while he is not a viable season-long option.

Tyson Chandler Headshot

Tyson Chandler (illness) was ruled out for Monday.

It seems like a lot of NBA players are sick right now, so Chandler is just another victim. This bug seems to be running it's course through about a week, so he may be out for a couple more games before all is said and done. Alex Len will take his place.

Joe Ingles Headshot

Joe Ingles will start on Monday.

Ingles is a deep league option, as he will be filling an important role in this Jazz starting lineup. He has performed well when given extended minutes, so even a DFS look may payoff initially.

Rodney Hood Headshot

Rodney Hood (knee) is expected to miss two weeks.

Word is that Hood has no structural damage, however resting is probably the best medicine for his bothersome knee. In his place will be Joe Ingles going forward, and considering the structure of the Jazz offensive gameplan, he may have some deep league value.

Brian Winters Headshot

Jets have signed Brian Winters to a 4-year extension.

Winters has put together a rock solid past two seasons, despite what the Jets record may otherwise indicate. The money figures have yet to be disclosed, but a four-year extension seems reasonable for the 25-year-old.
