Jose Calderon Headshot

Jose Calderon (hamstring) ruled out for Monday.

Calderon injured the hamstring on Saturday and was unable to return. It is no surprise he will be unable to play tomorrow as hamstrings can be tricky injuries. Calderon is a small factor to the Lakers and his loss should not be overly impacting. Marcelo Huertas will get some extra minutes with Calderon out, but is not worth playing in any fantasy format.

Ian Mahinmi Headshot

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play in Monday's game.

Mahinmi has played just one game this season and holds no fantasy value. Jason Smith should see a few additional minutes. Marcin Gortat has a firm lock on the starting C gig for the the Wizards.

Mike Dunleavy Headshot

Mike Dunleavy (concussion) will play Monday.

Dunleavy hasn't played in the last week since suffering a concussion but he passed the league's concussion protocol and he will play tomorrow. The 36-year-old is averaging just over 15 minutes played per game this season but he's shooting just 35 percent from the floor.

Reggie Jackson Headshot

Reggie Jackson will play Sunday against the Magic.

Jackson will make his season debut today against the Magic after missing Detroit's first 21 games due to knee tendinitis. It's uncertain just how much playing time he will receive tonight but Jackson has the ability to be a huge difference maker for the Pistons having averaged 18.8 points per game and 6.2 assists in his 79 games played in 2015-16. The Italian-born 26-year-old's return will eat into Ish Smith's minutes at the point guard position for the foreseeable future.

Maurice Ndour Headshot

Knicks have recalled Maurice Ndour from the Westchester Knicks.

Ndour has appeared in 10 games for the Knicks this season, averaging just over 8 minutes played per game but has failed to make a fantasy impact in any notable category. Ndour will provide some power forward depth off the bench, having scored 12 points and snatched 6 rebounds in his lone game in the D-League.

Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Jahlil Okafor played a season high 33 minutes Saturday against the Celtics.

Despite Brett Brown saying the minute restriction was gone, Okafor was still playing under 27 minutes per game. However, Joel Embiid did sit this one out so we'll have to see how many minutes Okafor plays when the two young big men play together.

Dante Exum Headshot

Dante Exum headed to the locker room with left knee soreness. He is expected to return.

This is pretty tough news for the Jazz as their backcourt is already pretty thin with George Hill and Rodney Hood ruled out before the game. With Exum out, the Jazz will likely turn to Shelvin Mack to run the point if Exum is unable to return.

Joel Embiid Headshot

76ers coach Brett Brown said team is still uncertain about Joel Embiid playing Monday.

When Embiid is active he's startable in season-long leagues and all DFS formats. However, he started his career as an inactive for Philadelphia for almost 2 years so they're playing it safe with their young superstar and resting him in the 2nd game of back-to-back's. Embiid rested for Saturday night's game and is currently not a sure thing to play Monday night against Denver.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson will start the second half Saturday.

He's filling in for the injured Jose Calderon. He will see big minutes in the immediate future as long as Calderon, D'Angelo Russell, and Nick Young are out.

Robin Lopez Headshot

Robin Lopez is headed back to the locker room with a possible injury.

No word yet on what the injury could be, but he has already returned to the Bulls bench, so it shouldn't be anything too worrisome.
