Dante Cunningham Headshot

Cunningham will start in place of Demarcus Cousins (ankle) for Sunday's game in Denver.

Added Yesterday 6:59 pm (EST)
Cunningham will slot in at the four while Anthony Davis slides over to Cousins' typical center position. Before plugging the gritty Villanova product into daily lineups, however, DFSers should take note that the Nuggets have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to forwards across the past 10 games.
Marc Gasol Headshot

Gasol (foot) will not play Sunday night against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southest reports.

Added Yesterday 6:41 pm (EST)
Gasol is tending to a left foot strain, although the severity of which isn't clear. Look for Zach Randolph to take his place in the starting lineup.
Zach Randolph Headshot

Randolph will draw the start at center for Sunday's matchup against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southeast reports.

Added Yesterday 6:37 pm (EST)
With Marc Gasol (foot) out Sunday, Randolph will draw the start against the Warriors. In three starts this season, he's averaged 14.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 33.6 minutes per game.
Monta Ellis Headshot

Ellis will start at shooting guard for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

Added Yesterday 4:29 pm (EST)
Coach Nate McMillan said he was hoping to play a little faster Sunday, which was his reasoning for inserting Ellis into the top unit. C.J. Miles will head to the bench in the corresponding move and could see a slight down tick in minutes. In 23 previous starts this season, Ellis has averaged 9.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists across 31.2 minutes.
Ty Lawson Headshot

Lawson won't be available off the bench Sunday against the Rockets due to right knee soreness, Kings sideline reporter Kayte Christensen reports.

Added Yesterday 4:04 pm (EST)
The Kings didn't list Lawson on the injury report prior to Sunday's game, so the point guard may have tweaked the knee in pregame warmups. It's likely not a major concern for the point guard, as Sacramento has been holding out their veterans fairly liberally for minor injuries or rest purposes in an effort to evaluate younger options and improve their odds in the draft lottery. Lawson was coming off a 20-point, two-assist performance over 24 minutes in Friday's loss to the Warriors, but don't expect him to deliver many outings of that caliber over the final two and a half weeks of the season. He was averaging just 8.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointer in 22.8 minutes per game in his prior six appearances before the 20-point outburst.
Avery Bradley Headshot

Bradley (illness) said that he would be available to play Sunday against the Heat, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England reports.

Added Yesterday 3:57 pm (EST)
It wasn't looking promising that Bradley would suit up Sunday after he remained hospitalized due to the stomach flu as of Saturday morning, but he was present for the team's morning shootaround and seems to have made dramatic improvement over the last 24 hours. Given the brevity of his absence, Bradley figures to rejoin the starting five in place of Jaylen Brown, who spelled him at shooting guard during Friday's win over the Suns. However, it wouldn't be surprising if coach Brad Stevens was cautious with Bradley, who could see his minutes restricted on some level, making him a less-than-appealing DFS play.
Skal Labissiere Headshot

Labissiere will start at power forward Sunday against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

Added Yesterday 3:52 pm (EST)
The Kings are holding out Kosta Koufos for rest purposes in the front end of the back-to-back set, so Labissiere will move back to the starting five following a one-game stint on the bench. Labissiere was still quite productive in a reserve role during Friday's loss to the Warriors, turning in 10 points, 10 boards, eight assists and one block in 27 minutes. He figures to get plenty of burn over the last two and a half weeks of the season while the lottery-bound Kings turn their focus to finding more playing time for their younger players.
Tyreke Evans Headshot

Evans will start at small forward in Sunday's game against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

Added Yesterday 3:48 pm (EST)
The Kings are resting Arron Afflalo for the front end of the back-to-back set, so it will open up a spot on the top unit for Evans, who sat out Sacramento's previous game Friday against the Warriors for rest purposes. Evans will still likely be capped at around 28 minutes on the recommendation of team doctors following his offseason knee surgery, but he's still been one of the team's more productive offensive players since he was acquired at the trade deadline. Over his nine appearances with the Kings, Evans has averaged 14.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 three-pointers in 22.4 minutes per game.
Darren Collison Headshot

Collison will start at point guard Sunday against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

Added Yesterday 3:44 pm (EST)
Collison sat out the Kings' previous game Friday against the Warriors for rest, and he could be on tap for another game off Monday against the Grizzlies in the second half of a back-to-back set. While he won't face any restrictions Sunday, the Kings' ample backcourt depth makes it unlikely that coach Dave Joerger will turn to Collison for much more than 30 minutes. The veteran point guard is averaging 9.8 points, 5.8 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 27.0 minutes per game over his last five appearances.
Austin Rivers Headshot

Rivers will start at shooting guard in Sunday's game against the Kings, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.

Added Yesterday 2:17 pm (EST)
J.J. Redick recently suffered a sprained right ankle, so he'll sit out Sunday, which gives Rivers the opportunity to join the top unit. In 28 previous starts this season, Rivers has averaged 16.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists across 34.2 minutes, so he should have a temporary increase in value and could be an intriguing DFS play Sunday.
