Dirk Nowitzki Headshot

Dirk Nowitzki says he turned his right ankle during Thursday's game, but he played through it.

With Dirk being 38, and the Mavs playing Friday night, it would not be a surprise if he sat to rest the ankle. He posted 19 points and four rebounds in Thursday's loss. If he sits Friday, Dwight Powell could see a few more minutes.

Raymond Felton Headshot

Raymond Felton will start Thursday against the Timberwolves.

With Chris Paul out an extended period of time, Felton and Austin Rivers figure to split the point guard duties. At this point, until one pulls ahead, it is unclear who will see the majority of the minutes, but the veteran Felton figures to be the one to bet on early, and is worth an add if he's on your wire.

Evan Fournier Headshot

Evan Fournier (foot) is doubtful for Friday's game.

According to the Magic, Fournier's return from a heel ailment caused him to over-exert the rest of his foot, which caused him to miss Wednesday night, and in all likelihood Friday. Jodie Meeks figures to get most of the run in his absence, and is worth streaming and worth a look in DFS while he is starting.

David Lee Headshot

David Lee will start Thursday against the Nuggets.

Pau Gasol injured his finger, perhaps during warmups, so Lee will take his place in the starting lineup. He makes for a solid pivot for late slate DFS lineups, although it's unknown at this time whether Gasol will miss the entirety of the game or just be unavailable for the beginning of it.

Pau Gasol Headshot

Pau Gasol will not start Thursday due to a finger injury.

This, like Parker's late announced absence, comes as a shock. We don't know exactly what happened with his finger, but David Lee will draw the start in his stead. Gasol could still play tonight, just not be in the starting lineup. Lee makes for a solid pivot for Gasol in DFS lineups.

Dejounte Murray Headshot

Dejounte Murray will start Thursday against the Nuggets.

Murray will draw the start with Patty Mills playing big minutes behind him. Mills is the only DFS target however, while Murray should be widely avoided.

Tristan Thompson Headshot

UPDATE: Tristan Thompson will start second half.

He dislocated his finger in the first half of the game, but X-rays were negative and he will be able to return to the game.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nikola Jokic (ankle) will play on Thursday.

His owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as he will be in action tonight coming off of three great games. Despite the ankle injury, he should be played with confidence in all formats.

Tony Parker Headshot

Tony Parker (foot) is out for Thursday's game.

This is a huge loss for those who played Parker in full slate DFS. There was no word of this injury until very late, so it's unclear exactly when this injury occurred or how severe it is. Patty Mills will fill in for him tonight and should see a lot of minutes.
