DFS NBA Coach & FanDuel/DraftKings Plays: December 10
Jon Impemba
Dante Cunningham Headshot

Cunningham will get the start at power forward for Monday's matchup against the Rockets.

Cunningham will get the start in place of Anthony Davis (left adductor). He had started in Davis' place three of the previous five games, and posted 8.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks. and 1.0 triples across 24.9 minutes during that span. He is likely in line for a similar workload Monday.

Anthony Davis Headshot

Davis (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rockets.

Davis aggravated a left adductor injury during Sunday's matchup with the 76ers and after testing it out during pregame warmups Monday, the team decided it was in his best interest to sit out and avoid any additional strain. Davis' next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Bucks, though tentatively consider him questionable for that contest. With Davis out, Dante Cunningham will draw the start at power forward and could be a potential punt-play option for Monday's DFS slate.
7:23 pm (EST)
Al Horford Headshot

Horford (knee) said he's playing in Monday's game against the Bulls, Abby Chin of NBC Sports reports.

Horford came into Monday with a questionable designation because of a right knee bruise, but after testing it out during pregame warmups, he feels good enough to give it a go. Unless otherwise reported, Horford should take on his typical workload, though coach Brad Stevens could keep a close eye on his minutes if the game gets out of hand early considering the Bulls' sit in the cellar of the Eastern Conference standings.
7:15 pm (EST)
Brandan Wright Headshot

Wright (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Heat.

Wright will be missing his sixth straight contest Monday and he's yet to be provided with a timetable for a return, so he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. His next opportunity to take the court will be Wednesday against the Wizards, though in the meantime, guys like Deyonta Davis and Jarell Martin could see a few extra minutes off the bench.
7:08 pm (EST)
Chandler Parsons Headshot

Parsons will return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Heat, Clay Bailey of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

Parsons sat out Saturday's game for rest in order to limit the strain on his surgically repaired knee, but as expected, will rejoin the lineup for Monday. Look for Parsons to come off the bench and provide depth at the two forward positions, with his return likely meaning less minutes for guys like Dillon Brooks and James Ennis.
6:54 pm (EST)
Marcus Smart Headshot

Smart will start at point guard for Monday's game against the Bulls, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports.

The Celtics are set to be without Kyrie Irving (quad) on Monday, which allows Smart the opportunity to pick up the start in his place. That said, Smart was already averaging 30.2 minutes off the bench, so he'll likely only pick up a few extra minutes with the promotion. Along with Smart, look for Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin to pick up some more playing time in the backcourt.
6:40 pm (EST)
Jeremy Lamb Headshot

Lamb will start Monday's game against the Thunder.

Lamb will move into the lineup in the absence of Nic Batum, who will sit out with soreness in his elbow. Expect Lamb to see a bump in minutes, and the same could go for Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk off the bench.
6:40 pm (EST)
T.J. McConnell Headshot

McConnell (shoulder) is expected back for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

McConnell has missed five of the last six games while working back from a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. However, he's been able to ramp up his activity of late and as long as everything checks out during pregame warmups, he's slated to rejoin the lineup ahead of Tuesday's contest. If McConnell returns as expected, he could cut into Jerryd Bayless' minutes, though both players will likely see elevated playing time with Rob Covington (back) ruled out.
6:36 pm (EST)
Marcus Morris Headshot

Morris is expected to miss extended time while working on a solution for a nagging left knee injury, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Morris has tried to play through the injury recently, but will now look for a long-term solution to alleviate the discomfort. According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, Morris himself indicated that he could miss a couple of weeks, which at least gives some sort of expectation for how long he'll be sidelined. With that said, Morris should be out until late December at the earliest, which means more minutes for guys like Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis and Semi Ojeleye in the meantime.
6:31 pm (EST)
Andre Roberson Headshot

Roberson (ankle) will not play Monday against the Hornets, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

Roberson turned his ankle during Saturday's win over Memphis, in which he played 41 minutes and finished with two points, eight rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Billy Donovan is yet to announce who will start in his place, though Alex Abrines seems like the most likely candidate.
