The Astros fired manager Bo Porter and named Tom Lawless interim manager. Adam Everett was also added to the coaching staff.

Take care, Bo. It was almost a fun ride. Porter didn't have much to work with and still managed to do an okay job. Not great, but okay. Lawless will take the team to the end of the season and there could be another coaching change over the offseason.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Tyler Johnson and Henry Walker will start Friday against the Wizards.

Walker and Johnson will be starting in place of Deng and Wade on Friday night and although they might not match their production, expect them to pull their weight in the fantasy realm and be a productive start. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Dwyane Wade (hip) will not play Friday against the Wizards.

Henry Walker and Tyler Johnson should take his minutes at the two or three on Friday night. Don't expect Wade like production, but they should be able to hold their own. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Update: Luol Deng (right thigh contusion) will not play Friday.

James Ennis and Tyler Johnson should see their minutes increased due to the Deng injury. Don't expect Johnson to replicate his 26 point outing on Monday night, but he should be productive. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jae Crowder will start Friday in place of Avery Bradley.

Crowder has been pretty hot of late, so his start comes as no surprise, especially considering Bradley's struggles. If you feel comfortable, give Crowder a whirl in daily leagues, but wait and see for a few days in standard leagues, as it is still unclear if this move is permanent. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Channing Frye is in the Magic starting lineup on Friday.

Frye is likely getting the starting nod due to the absence of Nikola Vucevic. Expect Dewayne Dedmon to get extended playing time at center on Friday night. Analysis: Dom Murtha
