Josh Richardson Headshot

Josh Richardson (knee) will play in Friday's game.

Added 11/04/16 12:30 pm (EST)   Source
Richardson suffered a torn MCL back in September and has made his way back to start tonight against the Raptors. Last year, as a rookie, Richardson saw a large uptick in minutes down the stretch and once he has his legs underneath him, he could be in line for the same number of minutes for Miami. Richardson will have to develop a bit more but could be a nice contributor for Miami and your fantasy squad.
John Wall Headshot

Coach Scott Brooks said he expects Wall (migraine) to play Friday against the Nets, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Added 5:43 pm (EST)
The Wizards allowed Wall to sit out their morning shootaround while he complained of a headache, prompting the team to label him as questionable heading into the evening. While his official designation remains unchanged, Brooks' comments suggest that the point guard has made improvement over the afternoon, so assuming he incurs no setbacks during pregame warmups, Wall should start as he usually does. Expect Brooks to be judicious with Wall's minutes, however; the Wizards are entering the front end of the back-to-back set and would probably prefer to reserve a larger workload for their franchise cornerstone in Saturday's game against the conference-leading Cavaliers rather than the league-worst Nets.
Kenneth Faried Headshot

Faried (shoulder) will play Friday against the Pacers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Added 5:42 pm (EST)
Faried's status was in question due to a shoulder contusion, but that latest ailment won't prevent the Morehead State-product from suiting up Friday in nearby Indianapolis. However, with Danilo Gallinari (knee) returning to the fold, it wouldn't be surprising if banged-up Faried's minutes are scaled back to some degree.
Jeff Green Headshot

Green (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pistons, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

Added 5:30 pm (EST)
Green was also forced to miss Wednesday's game versus the Hornets due to his back spasms, which apparently haven't subsided enough for him to suit up to close this week. While his absence figures to result in Mario Hezonja seeing more run behind Aaron Gordon (hip), the Magic not playing again until Monday could bode well for Green limiting his sideline stint to just a couple contests.
Glenn Robinson Headshot

Robinson (calf) is expected to be sidelined for two weeks before being reevaluated by the Pacers' medical staff.

Added 5:25 pm (EST)
Robinson injured his left calf during practice Thursday, and according to the projected two-week timetable, could consequently miss at least Indiana's next eight games. That includes Friday night's tilt versus the Nuggets, when Rodney Stuckey is expected to fill his spot in the rotation as a key reserve player. Besides Stuckey, wings like C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis could stand to benefit from Robinson's vacated minutes.
Glenn Robinson Headshot

Robinson (calf) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

Added 4:48 pm (EST)
Robinson was listed as questionable heading into the day with a sore left calf, but the Pacers have since reclassified the injury as a strain and will keep the swingman out for the first time since Nov. 11 in order to aid his recovery. The 23-year-old had been serving as the primary backup to starting small forward Paul George, but his absence could prompt coach Nate McMillan to hand a little extra time to the likes of C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis.
Michael Gbinije Headshot

Gbinije (ankle) is listed in the game notes as doubtful for Friday's tilt with the Magic.

Added 4:14 pm (EST)
Gbinije hasn't been a regular member of the team's rotation all season, so his likely absence won't have much of an impact in the fantasy realm.
Johnny O'Bryant Headshot

O'Bryant (ankle) is listed as out in the game notes for Friday's tilt with the Cavaliers.

Added 4:12 pm (EST)
O'Bryant hasn't played since March 8 while he's nursed the right ankle sprain, missing seven straight games during that span. It doesn't appear he's quite yet ready to play, but even once O'Bryant is healthy, he'll be a negligible part of the team's rotation now that the Hornets top three big men -- Marvin Williams, Frank Kaminsky and Cody Zeller -- are back to full strength.
Andre Iguodala Headshot

Iguodala (hip) isn't listed on the Warriors' injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Kings, John Dickinson of 95.7 FM The Game reports.

Added 4:07 pm (EST)
Iguodala's strained left hip prevented him from playing in Tuesday's blowout win over the Mavericks, but it was likely more of a maintenance day for the veteran, who had logged 22 minutes a night earlier in a victory over the Thunder. The swingman has seen his duties increase since Kevin Durant (knee) went down with an injury, averaging 29.0 minutes per game over nine appearances, but don't be surprised if he falls short of that mark Friday with the Warriors taking on a tanking Kings team that could be woefully overmatched.
Archie Goodwin Headshot

Goodwin is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Nets on Saturday, Chris B. Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

Added 4:00 pm (EST)
Goodwin's initial pact is due to expire after Friday's game against the Wizards, but the 22-year-old has shown the Nets enough over his week and a half with the team to warrant another deal. Despite seeing only 13.3 minutes per game over three appearances, Goodwin is filling the stat sheet with marks of 8.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists, while shooting 58.8 percent from the field. The 22-year-old's talent has never been in question, and if he can display more consistent shooting over the second 10-day deal, he could be signed through the remainder of the season.
Shelvin Mack Headshot

Mack (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Added 3:48 pm (EST)
The Jazz have been ruling Mack out well in advance of their last several games, so his upgrade to questionable ahead of Saturday's contest suggests that a return to action could soon be in store. Even once that happens, however, Mack will likely find himself on the outside of the rotation as the third- or fourth-string point guard.
