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
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
