Celtics F Jared Sullinger (mild concussion) is expected to be out Wednesday vs. Atlanta.
As was previously reported, Sullinger, the Celtics leading rebounder, and Avery Bradley (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the even more decimated Atlanta Hawks who will be without Gustavo Ayon, Pero Antic, and Paul Millsap. All these injuries open up an opportunity to find some discounted value plays from both teams. From the Celtics I would target Kelly Olynyk then Brandon Bass. From the Hawks my first choice would be Mike Scott followed by Shelvin Mack and Elton Brand. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
