Demetrius Jackson Headshot

Demetrius Jackson was reassigned to the D-League on Tuesday.

Jackson hasn't played a minute in a game all month and has only played 18 total this season. He was simply up for some depth over the last couple of games but that is no longer needed by Boston.

Steven Adams Headshot

Steven Adams (concussion) will not play Wednesday.

Adams was diagnosed with the concussion on Monday and won't be able to play or practice much until he clears through the protocol, which he hasn't done yet. Enes Kanter will get a boost in minutes once again with Adams unable to go for the second game in a row.

Jeremy Lamb Headshot

Jeremy Lamb (foot) will not play Wednesday.

Wednesday will be the third straight game that Lamb will miss with the foot issue as he is not yet at full strength. Marco Belinelli will get another game of extended run in minutes in his place. Lamb was playing solidly prior to the injury for the Hornets.

Tarik Black Headshot

Tarik Black (ankle) will play Tuesday against Denver.

He was a full participant in Tuesday's shootaround and thus gets the nod to go later in the day for the game against the Nuggets. He is averaging 5.8 PPG and 5.1 RPG at the moment so he is much more a real-life contributor than a fantasy one.

Anthony Davis Headshot

Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) is questionable for Wednesday.

Davis re-injured the hip and newly injured the thumb in Monday's game and could barely make it back to the locker room. He went for X-Rays that came back negative, luckily fro him, though it would be a stretch to assume he could play just a couple of days later. He is always succumbing to some form of injury or another but when he is on the floor, there are few players better than him in the whole of the NBA.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson (ankle) will play Tuesday.

He was reported to have had a sprained right ankle, though it remains unclear when he suffered the injury considering he hasn't missed any of the recent Laker games and has played in the mid-20s minutes-wise each time. He should see his normal workload once again on Tuesday night despite the previously questionable tag.

Nerlens Noel Headshot

Updated: Nerlens Noel has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday.

Noel missed Monday's game with the tweaked ankle but was able to practice just fine on it in Tuesday's practice. He still said "it's sore" however it shouldn't be hampering him enough to keep him out of the lineup. Noel has been playing well for the temporarily resurgent Sixers and should be good to go for Wednesday, though could still be on a minutes limit of some sort.

Nerlens Noel Headshot

Nerlens Noel is questionable for Wednesday.

He missed last game because of the ankle and it could hold him out tomorrow. Noel has been playing well behind Embiid but does not see enough minutes to make a huge impact in fantasy. He is worth owning in deeper leagues, and a trade would make him much more valuable.
