FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Luol Deng (Achilles) will play on Tuesday.

Deng is coming off a double-double of 18 points and 10 boards in 41 minutes of action in Sunday's home loss to the Suns, but is facing a Pelicans team tonight that has improved their defense against opposing small forwards of late having allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to the position over the last 15 days. So, if you have any concerns his minutes will be limited tonight then fading him in your daily league contests may be wise, but definitely get him in your season long lineups.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
