Update: NBA suspends Nick Young one game without pay for throwing a punch at Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic.
Young will miss Friday's highly anticipated matchup with the Celtics in Boston. With Young suspended and Xavier Henry still sidelined with a sore knee, the Lakers Wesley Johnson will likely see extended action as the team's starting small forward and rookie Ryan Kelly may also see an uptick in minutes. Consider Johnson a good to great value play Friday versus a Celtics team that is allowing the most Fantasy Points to opposing small forwards on the season.rnANALYST: Michael Pichan
Wade Davis will take over as the Royals' closer with Greg Holland on the 15-day disabled list.
Davis is instantly vaulted into top-5 closer status while he is closing, and has just as much value as Holland would have in the ninth inning. Davis is downright dominant, and could have the job for quite a while, as although the severity of Greg Holland's pectoral strain is unknown, Holland is expected to be out for a significant chunk of time. Davis should obviously now be owned in all leagues, and the biggest question about the job for now is whether Davis will hold onto the gig once Holland returns. Analysis: Ben Diamond
