2017 Fantasy Basketball Weekly Planner: Week 5

Josh Richardson Headshot

Richardson left in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Pacers after getting poked in the eye and will not return.

Richardson had put up 15 points in 30 minutes before exiting Sunday's contest, and due to the blowout nature, there was no chance the guard was going to return whether he was healthy enough or not. With two days off before the next game, Richardson should have plenty of time to recover and be able to return for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics.
7:16 pm (EST)
Tyson Chandler Headshot

Chandler (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

This will be the third straight game Chandler misses due to the illness, and in his absence, Greg Monroe is expected to pick up yet another start at center. Chandler will have two days to recover before his next opportunity to return Wednesday against the Bucks.
6:26 pm (EST)
Jared Dudley Headshot

Dudley (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Suns, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

This will be Dudley's fifth straight absence with the knee injury, and he remains without a timetable for a return. His next opportunity to play won't be until Wednesday against the Bucks.
6:23 pm (EST)
Wayne Selden Headshot

Selden (quad) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

After missing the first 11 games of the season with a quad injury, Selden made his season debut Nov. 11 against the Rockets. However, after playing just two games, he's reportedly dealing with a flare up of that previous quad injury and will now miss a second straight game. That's certainly discouraging for his availability moving forward, though for now, he can tentatively be considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks.
6:10 pm (EST)
Ante Zizic Headshot

Zizic was Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio to the Canton Charge of the G-League on Sunday.

Zizic hasn't been a featured part of the Cavaliers' rotation this season, so he'll use a trip to the G-League to take on some extended minutes with the Charge. Unless Cleveland's frontcourt becomes plagued with injuries, Zizic is not expected to play much of a role during his first year with the team.
6:10 pm (EST)
Tyreke Evans Headshot

Evans is dealing with a right shoulder injury and is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Evans has been on an absolute tear to start this season, averaging 17.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.0 steal across 15 games. However, it appears he may have picked up a shoulder injury during Saturday's game against the Rockets and is now in danger of being sidelined for the first time this season. Look for another update following the team's morning shootaround Monday, but if he ends up sitting out, Dillon Brooks and Ben McLemore would likely benefit with more minutes on the wing.
6:06 pm (EST)
Derrick Jones Jr. Headshot

Jones was recalled from the G-League on Sunday, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

Jones was assigned to the G-League on Friday. He's appeared in five games this season, averaging 5.4 minutes and 1.4 points. He'll likely remain towards the end of the bench deep into the season, even if he isn't sent back down to the G-League
5:59 pm (EST)
Brandan Wright Headshot

Wright (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Wright suffered a groin injury in the second quarter of Saturday's game and was unable to return. The Grizzlies haven't issued any sort of update on the severity, though with the team heading into the second night of a back-to-back, Wright will understandably remain on the sidelines. His next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Mavericks, though in the meantime, Jarell Martin could pick up more minutes as a reserve in the frontcourt.
5:59 pm (EST)
Jared Dudley Headshot

Dudley (knee) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bulls, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

Dudley has missed the last four games with a knee injury. If he's unable to play Sunday, Dragan Bender and T.J. Warren will likely receive more playing time in Dudley's place.
5:53 pm (EST)
Jon Leuer Headshot

Leuer (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

Leuer continues to work back from a sprained left ankle, with Sunday marking his eighth straight absence. The Pistons are actually slated to have Leuer undergo another MRI in the near future as well just to make sure there's nothing more serious at hand, which is at least somewhat concerning. Look for another update once those test results are revealed and at this point, Leuer also seems highly unlikely to be ready for Monday's tilt with the Cavaliers.
