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.

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.

UPDATE: Klay Thompson will start Wednesday against the Thunder.

As expected, Thompson is back in town and is ready to play against Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder. In a big game for teammate Kevin Durant, expect Thompson and the rest of the Warriors to show out.
