NBA DFS Position Coach: January 19

Quincy Acy Headshot

Quincy Acy has signed a second 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

We have seen Acy make four very brief appearances for the Nets and made a nice impression averaging 6.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in just 7.5 minutes per game. We don't see his role growing much at this point, so fantasy owners can just ignore him on waiver wires.

Kevin Love Headshot

Kevin Love (back) status for Thursday remains in question.

Love did participate in morning shoot around but it was limited which makes him questionable for Thursday night's game against the Suns. We heard Love say after the Cavs loss to the Warriors on Monday night that he wouldn't miss any additional time, but this is looking more and more like a game time decision. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will be popular DFS plays especially if Love sits, but Channing Frye might draw some interest as well.

Tyson Chandler Headshot

Tyson Chandler (illness) said he'll play in Thursday's game.

It will be good to get Chandler back in the Suns lineup especially since he's been averaging 8.7 points and 15.5 boards per game during the month of January. He missed Monday's game against the Jazz with a stomach bug but seemed to be recovering nicely. Chandler is averaging over 30 minutes game which makes him worth owning standard leagues while Alex Len should still have value off the bench.

Joakim Noah Headshot

Joakim Noah is doubtful for Thursday.

The big man is nursing an ankle injury that sidelined him on Wednesday and will need an MRI to find out the extent of the injury. While Noah is out, Kyle O’Quinn and Willy Hernangomez will get a boost in minutes. O’Qunn struggled as a starter on Wednesday with Noah sidelined, but Hernangomez thrived as he scored 17 points and recorded 11 rebounds. It will be interesting to see how the minutes shake out moving forward.

David West Headshot

David West suffered a non displaced fracture of his thumb on Wednesday.

The Warriors just got even smaller with the injury to West, who will be reevaluated in two weeks. West wasn’t a big fantasy performer, but he did help the Warriors in the size department. Kevon Looney could see more minutes due to the injury.

Rudy Gay Headshot

Rudy Gay appears to have suffered a torn Achilles on Wednesday.

This is just brutal news for the 30-year-old. An MRI will be taken to confirm the injury, but Gay is more than likely out for the remainder of the year. This injury will obviously have the potential to linger into next season, a contract year for the veteran. Gay is averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.5 steals this season and it will be extremely difficult for fantasy owners to find that kind of production on the bench. Garrett Temple, Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver will all see their minutes increase with Temple possibly the biggest beneficiary.

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.
