Due to Bogut's vast injury history, he likely won't return to Sunday's game. Even if the injury was very minor, the Mavericks are going to side with caution. Bogut grabbed two rebounds and one assist before exiting Sunday.
Gibson has been experiencing some soreness in his ankle and he will not play tonight against the Sixers. The 31-year-old has been a key cog for the Bulls this season, starting 47 games and averaging 11.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in just over 27 minutes played per game. Gibson's absence from the lineup could mean a big night for Jimmy Butler seeing that Butler is averaging 10 more fantasy points per game when Gibson sits so far this season.
Those who used Love in daily fantasy contests today are surely a bit sour upon seeing this news, given the fact that Love scored just one point and snatched eight boards before leaving the game. The Cavaliers power forward will not return to today's game due to back spasms, and it's uncertain if the injury is something that will continue to bother him over the next few days. Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson both played more than 10 minutes in the first half, and they should continue to see heavy usage in the second half with Love out.
Fournier has been held out of game action for five straight games and it appears as though he will not suit up tonight against the Timberwolves. His heel injury is apparently still seriously bothering him, and no timetable has been given for a potential return to the lineup. Elfrid Payton and D.J. Augustin should continue to see an increased amount of playing time tonight with Fournier sidelined.
DeRozan has been sidelined for the last three games due to a sprained ankle and it seems as though he's going to be a game-time decision for tonight's game. Raptors coach Dwayne Casey said the team is taking a "wait and see" approach which makes it sound like they are not confident that he will be able to play tonight. If DeRozan can't go, Norman Powell should continue to experience a jolt in fantasy relevance due to his increased minutes at the two guard position.
Randle was at Laker's practice today but didn't participate due to the fact that he has pneumonia, and he's considered to be questionable for Los Angeles' game on Tuesday. He's been held out of the lineup for the past two games due to his illness, and it's hard to imagine him being able to play through pneumonia, so he will definitely have to be feeling almost 100 percent in order to suit up. Tarik Black would likely get another start at power forward if Randle can't go on Tuesday.
Excellent news for owners, as it was feared he would be out an extended period of time. Jokic has enjoyed a breakout season, with averages of 15.5 points, eight rebounds and four assists per game. Jusuf Nurkic will continue to fill until Jokic is back.
Rose owners in seasonal leagues should be used to this, so it is no surprise he has been ruled out for Sunday. This makes Brandon Jennings an immediate pickup and a play in DFS as he has filled in nicely for Rose. There is no timetable for how long he will miss.
