The New York Knicks allow more points to small forwards than any other in the NBA. With the massive concerns centered around concussions, Doug McDermott will be 100% after being medically cleared from his concussion. McDermott is a great start in seasonal and daily leagues.
Paul George Headshot

George (leg) was ejected from Saturday's game against the Heat after picking up his second technical foul midway through the third quarter, Nate Taylor The Indianapolis Star reports.

Added 9:45 pm (EST)
The good news is that George didn't have a recurrence of the leg cramps which forced him from Friday's game against the Grizzlies. It's unlikely he'll face any further disciplinary action after the ejection for foul language, so start him as your normally would heading into the new week.
Joe Harris Headshot

Harris will start at small forward in Saturday's game against the Warriors, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Added 9:35 pm (EST)
Harris will step into the starting five with Caris LeVert (illness) under the weather. He doesn't have a lot of value in seasonal fantasy leagues allowing daily moves but he isn't a bad low-cost option for DFS owners.
Patrick McCaw Headshot

McCaw is starting at small forward for Saturday's matchup with the Nets, Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Added 8:55 pm (EST)
McCaw is starting place of Kevin Durant (hand). He'll figure to see a boost in play time for the time being before returning to his typical role off the bench as soon as Durant returns.
Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley (groin) will play and start in Saturday's tilt against the Timberwolves despite previous reports indicating that he would be sidelined, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Added 8:04 pm (EST)
Beverley tested out his injury in the pregame shootaround and determined that it's good enough for him to take part in Saturday's contest. He played 30 minutes Thursday against the Pelicans, and could see a similar workload against the Timberwolves.

Beverley was initially reported to be out of Saturday's game due to his groin injury, but after working out his injury a bit he determined he could play. Eric Gordon, who was expected to start in Beverley's place, will come off the bench once again. It's unclear if Beverley will be limited at all, if he is look for Gordon to see some extra minutes off the bench.

Added 7:51 pm (EST)
It was initially reported that Thomas would come off the bench and Kyle O'Quinn would draw the start, but the Knicks changed their lineup at the last minute. Thomas played 31 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers and figures to see a similar minute load on Saturday.

Added 7:50 pm (EST)
With Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) out, O'Quinn will continue providing a spark off the bench while Lance Thomas will draw the start at power forward.
Clint Capela Headshot

Capela will assume his normal role as the starting center for Saturday's contest against the Timberwolves, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gordon will start at shooting guard in Saturday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Rockets' radio announcer Craig Ackerman reports.

Added 7:30 pm (EST)

Added 7:27 pm (EST)
Beverley's groin strain that he's been dealing with since prior to the All-Star break has caught up with him, and he'll miss Saturday's contest. In his place, Eric Gordon will draw the start, with Lou Williams presumably taking over Gordon's role as the sixth man.
