Updates & News
James Harden, who missed his second straight game Wednesday with a bruised thumb, is listed as day-to-day with the Rockets off until Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
With three days in between games, the Rockets will have plenty of time to evaluate Harden prior to Saturday's contest. Barring any setbacks, fantasy owners should expect to have Harden back in their starting lineup against the Cavaliers.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Carlos Peguero will be on Boston's major league roster.
With the Red Sox dealing with injuries in their outfield, they are going to give Peguero a chance. The Rangers cut ties with him after he struck out in just under 43-percent of the times he came to the plate in the first 30 games of the season. He is one of those guys who has incredible raw power, but he is boom-or-bust and is going to be a drain on your batting average. However, no playing time is guaranteed, so he should be left off most rosters. Analysis: Colby Conway
Colts signed first-round wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Dorsett is known for his excellent speed that he showcased while at the University of Miami. The Indy receiving core is pretty packed, so Dorsett’s expectations for his rookie year should be held in check. Last season for the Hurricanes, he caught 36 passes for 871 yards and 10 touchdowns. He would need an injury or two to become seriously fantasy relevant, seeing that he will be no higher than their number four receiver at the start of this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
