Update: Masahiro Tanaka has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation.
It starts in the forearm and now we're talking elbow inflammation. Ugh. Tanaka owners need to collectively channel all of their thoughts, all of their prayers, and all of their good vibes towards a healthy Tanaka and hope for the best. In an era riddled with Tommy John surgeries, the obvious knee-jerk reaction is to freak out, but wait until you get the full story and MRI results before you take action. Nothing hurts a fantasy team more than a panic-trade. Beware of circling vultures. They, most definitely, do not have your best interest in mind.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Derrick Favors (back) is probable for Wednesday .
This should be a fun game for Daily Fantasy Players if Favors is able to give it a go for the Jazz against Kenneth Faried and the Nuggets. You will have to wait for further updates but it looks good for Favors' return after a two game absence. If he does play, he should play his normal allotment of minutes as the starting power forward. Trevor Booker will go back to the bench and become basically useless to fantasy owners. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley is visiting the NY Jets Wednesday.
This spot does not make sense for Stevan Ridley as he would be competing with Chris Ivory, who is basically the same exact player. They are both early-down running backs who don't contribute much, if anything, in the pass game. Ivory is probably overall the better back with more upside and Ridley would just be part of a rotation with the Jets. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Kevin Martin (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday.
We will have to wait until after Martin has his afternoon nap to see how his hamstring feels but he did not sound confident in taking the court. It is quite impressive that the Wolves' can even field a team at this point with the laundry list of players on their injury report. Martin's owners should have a backup plan ready. if he does indeed sit on Wednesday, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger will continue to see major minutes. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Tony Allen (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.
After Allen missed Monday night's game, the general thought was that he would miss the rest of the week due to the aggravation to his hamstring. That is looking more and more likely as he has still not seen the practice floor. Vince Carter will get most of his minutes while Jeff Green also benefits. Allen can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Analysis: Drew Phelps
