Zach Randolph Headshot

Zach Randolph is expected to play Tuesday after missing 7-games following his mother's passing.

He has taken his time to grieve for his mother and now he's ready to return to the court for the Grizzlies on Tuesday night. JaMychal Green and Jarell Martin got most of the work while Randolph was out but they will lose all value with the return of Z-Bo. He's averaging 14.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and shooting 47 percent from the field this season.

Robert Covington Headshot

Robert Covington will not play Tuesday.

We found out on Monday that Robert Covington will not only Monday's game against the Nuggets but the two-game road trip against the Grizzlies and Pelicans with continued knee problems. We can gather that the earliest we would see Covington is December 11th against the Pistons but there is no guarantee of that. Gerald Henderson and Nik Stauskas have been playing heavy minutes, while Hollis Thompson should be more involved as well.

Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Jahlil Okafor will not play Tuesday.

Okafor is dealing with a case of gastroenteritis which kept him our of Monday's game against the Nuggets and now Tuesday's game in Memphis. Okafor should be fine but he will be officially questionable for Thursday's game in New Orleans. Joel Embiid is also getting a night off on Tuesday. Richaun Holmes should see a lot of work at the center position tonight. Dario Saric and Ersan Ilyasova could also man the five spot during certain small ball lineups.

Joel Embiid Headshot

Joel Embiid (rest) will not play Tuesday.

Embiid is coming off of a 16 point performance on Monday night in which he shot 5-of-15 from the field with a three-pointer, four rebounds and five blocks in 24 minutes. Everyone's favorite DFS play will get the night off on Tuesday after struggling a bit against Jusuf Nurkic. No surprise, but Jahlil Okafor is also out for this one, meaning Richaun Holmes could be a sneaky play tonight night.

James Young Headshot

James Young (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

We should have a better idea of Young's status following Wednesday's shootaround. Young is averaging just 5.8 minutes per game this season, so his availability won't impact his teammates much, if at all.

Rajon Rondo Headshot

Rajon Rondo will play Tuesday.

Rondo served a one-game suspension Monday against the Trail Blazers, and his team will likely rely on him heavily Tuesday at Detroit. The Bulls lose an hour going to Detroit to play their fourth game in five nights, so Rondo could have a lot of tired teammates.

Tony Parker Headshot

Tony Parker left Monday night's 97-96 win over the Milwaukee Bucks with an apparent knee injury that coach Gregg Popovich said could keep him out for an extended period.

Patty Mills is averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 assists in four games as a starter this season, and he is a must-add for any fantasy team looking for assists. Mills will likely never be consistent enough to trust for DFS, but he will have some value until his price catches up to his new role.

Tarik Black Headshot

X-Rays came back negative Tarik Black (ankle). Lakers list him as doubtful for Wednesday.

Black had seen increased minutes over the last couple of weeks while Larry Nance Jr. and Julius Randle dealt with injuries, but Black probably won't be in the rotation Wednesday even if is able to go. Thomas Robinson could get a bit more run if Black is out, but not enough to be useful for fantasy.

Eric Gordon Headshot

Rockets guard Eric Gordon (ankle) expects to play on Wednesday.

Gordon expects to play tomorrow after rolling his ankle. He has been a valuable contributor in the points department this season, but he offers little value outside of that category. Through the early part of the season, he is in the conversation for sixth man of the year.

Andrew Bogut Headshot

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle told reporters that Andrew Bogut suffered a hyperextended knee and that x-rays on his knee came back clean.

The X-rays came back clean, which is good, but he still suffered a hyperextended knee. Given his injury and brittle body, he will likely take a few nights off before returning to the lineup. Consider him day-to-day.
