Jared Dudley Headshot

Jared Dudley (illness) expected to play Thursday.

Dudley hasn't played a single minute in his last six games so regardless of him playing he's unlikely to see the court anymore than seven minutes. He'll continue to be behind Marquese Chriss on the depth chart.

Brandon Knight Headshot

Brandon Knight (wrist) is questionable for Thursday's game.

Knight has missed the last two games with a wrist injury so don't expect him to be receiving his usual minutes off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe whenever he does come back. Knight has been a reliable guard off the bench for the Suns and will continue to play solid minutes when back healthy.

Taj Gibson Headshot

Taj Gibson (ankle) is expected to play on Friday.

After missing their last game against the Mavs, Gibson will likely be placed back in the starting line-up but with lesser minutes. Nikola Mirotic will become a bigger role from off the bench for the Bulls while Gibson continue to nurse his ankle injury.
43 minutes ago
Tyson Chandler Headshot

Tyson Chandler (illness) is expected to play Thursday.

Chandler has been dealing with the flu which caused him to miss their game on Monday against the Jazz. Alex Len is likely to pick up more minutes for Thursday's game regardless if Chandler is back or not. Look for Chandler to work his minutes back up once his illness is fully gone.

DeMar DeRozan Headshot

DeMar DeRozan is questionable for Wednesday's game.

With Lowry getting a rest day during their Tuesday night's game, it's very likely that DeRozan could get a rest day for tonight's game as well. With the Raptors basically being a lock to make playoffs in the East, they're likely to rest their two stars more often. Norman Powell will likely start at SG if DeRozan is listed as inactive.

Klay Thompson Headshot

Klay Thompson will not play in Wednesday's game.

Thompson will not be with the team because of a personal issue so no need to worry fantasy owners. With the Warriors playing a big name game against Westbrook and the Thunder, more thought would be towards Durant facing his former team. Look for Ian Clark to receive more minutes during tonight's game.

Bismack Biyombo Headshot

Bismack Biyombo will play in Wednesday's game.

Biyombo has a sore knee but will be able to play through it today. He took a hard fall but last game but it will not cause him to miss time. He had one of his better games Monday and is deep league own-able in fantasy.

Anthony Davis Headshot

Anthony Davis (hip) will play in Wednesday's game.

Davis is dealing with the hip but will play through it. He has solid numbers in his career against the Magic and it will likely continue tonight as long as he is able to play the whole game. Fantasy owners will of course have Davis in their lineup as usual.

Kevin Love Headshot

Update: Kevin Love (back) is now listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

Love played limited minutes last game, and is questionable for the game Thursday. Fantasy owners will of course play him as usual as he has had a good season to this point, averaging 20+ points and 10+ rebounds per game. This of course if he is active.

Mo Williams Headshot

Mo Williams has been released by the Denver Nuggets.

Williams just got sent over to the Nuggets from the Hawks in a trade and was cut right away. His career is likely over, as he has yet to play in a game this season. The veteran could get picked up, but even if he does it would have no impact on fantasy.
