2017 Fantasy Basketball Player Rankings: Week 10

Jason Terry Headshot

Terry (calf) put in a full practice Monday, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.

The veteran has missed six games with a strained calf, and Monday marked his first on-court action in two weeks. While the Bucks could get Terry back as soon as Tuesday against Cleveland, the 40-year-old is an afterthought in nearly all fantasy formats.
1:23 pm (EST)
Tony Snell Headshot

Snell (knee) took part in Monday's practice, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.

Snell has missed the last five contests with tendinitis in his left knee, but the hope is that he'll be able to return to action Tuesday after a layoff of nearly two weeks. That said, the Bucks will wait to assess the 26-year-old at shootaround Tuesday before making a final call. Prior to the injury, Snell had been seeing roughly 30 minutes on most nights, and he ranks among the NBA leaders in True Shooting Percentage, while hitting nearly 48 percent of his three-point attempts.
1:21 pm (EST)
Matthew Dellavedova Headshot

Dellavedova (knee) returned to practice Monday, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.

The Bucks haven't said much about Dellavedova's recovery from tendinitis in his left knee, but the scrappy guard has missed more than a month, with Saturday's loss to Houston marking his 15th straight absence. His return to practice is certainly a step in the right direction, though coach Jason Kidd said the team will wait until Tuesday morning to make a call on his status for the evening's matchup with Cleveland.
1:17 pm (EST)
Derrick Favors Headshot

Favors (concussion) will remain out Monday against the Rockets, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors took a hit to the head Friday against Boston and was subsequently held out of Saturday's loss to the Cavaliers. He'll remain sidelined Monday and will have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before returning to game action. With Rudy Gobert (knee) also out, expect Utah to again go with Ekpe Udoh at center. Udon played a season-high 33 minutes Saturday and finished with nine points, seven rebounds, six blocks, three assists and three steals.
1:11 pm (EST)
Wesley Johnson Headshot

Johnson will not play Monday against the Spurs due to a left foot injury, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.

The injuries continue to pile up for the Clippers, who will now be without both Johnson and Lou Williams (ankle) on Monday, though they do expect to get Austin Rivers back from a concussion. With Johnson out, expect Jamil Wilson and Sam Dekker to each pick up increased minutes on the wing.
1:08 pm (EST)
Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson said Okafor would need to get in better shape before the center becomes a staple in the team's rotation, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. "I talked to Jahlil, had a great conversation with him," Atkinson said Sunday. "We need to help him get in better condition, that's first off. We need to integrate him more into the system. It's going to take some time. I'm not going to give you a date but it's a strategic plan, just like we've done with all our guys, integrating guys into the team. It's going to take some time."

Acquired Dec. 7 from the 76ers after lying idle for most of the season, Okafor made his Nets debut Friday against the Raptors, producing 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes. While it was expected Okafor's solid outing would earn him a regular role in the games that followed, the 2015 first-round pick instead never got off the bench in Sunday's 109-97 loss to the Pacers. Based on Atkinson's comments, it seems likely that Okafor won't be a factor for at least one more game while he looks to regain conditioning after having not played much competitive basketball over the past year. With that in mind, Okafor might not be worth rostering in shallower formats just yet, though his scoring upside could be tantalizing enough to make him worth stashing in deeper settings until he eventually cracks the rotation on a consistent basis.
1:01 pm (EST)
Lauri Markkanen Headshot

Markkanen (back) will return to the starting lineup Monday against the 76ers, Bulls radio voice Chuck Swirsky reports.

The rookie went through shootaround and will return to action after a three-game absence due to a soreness in his lower-back. Markkanen's return means Nikola Mirotic will shift back to the bench as the Bulls seek their sixth consecutive victory. Over his last five games, Markkanen holds averages of 15.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 42.9 percent from the floor and 29.6 percent from three.
1:00 pm (EST)
Danny Green Headshot

Green (groin) technically remains questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers, but he told reporters he expects to play, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

A groin issue kept Green out of Saturday's win over Dallas, and the expectation is that he'll be back at his usual spot in the starting lineup Monday. After a fairly encouraging start to the season, Green's production has tailed off of late, as he's shooting just 33.3 percent from the floor in December, with averages of 5.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.3 made threes (29.0% 3PT) for the month.
12:54 pm (EST)
Jeremy Lin Headshot

Lin (knee) could be cleared to resume running and jumping in April, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Since rupturing his patellar tendon in the Nets' season opener and subsequently being ruled out for the rest of the campaign, Lin has been rehabbing in Vancouver. The point guard seems to be progressing well in his recovery, and the expectation is that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2018-19 season. Lin will turn 31 years old in May and has been limited to just 37 games in his first two years with Brooklyn due to injury, leaving serious question marks about how effective he'll be once he's healthy again.
12:52 pm (EST)
Lou Williams Headshot

Williams will not play Monday against the Spurs due to an ankle injury, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.

Williams apparently picked up the injury during Saturday's loss to Miami, in which he played 36 minutes and had 13 points, even assists and one rebound while shooting just 4-of-16 from the field. The veteran has been thrust into a key role given all of the Clippers' injuries, and he's averaging nearly 35 minutes per game in the month of December. In his absence Monday, expect Austin Rivers (concussion), Milos Teodosic, Jawun Evans, C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell to handle most of the backcourt workload.
