C. Zeller - C
Zeller (knee) won't play in Sunday's tilt against the Raptors.
Zeller is missing his seventh-straight game due to knee soreness. Look for Bismack Biyombo and Frank Kaminsky to continue seeing added minutes in Zeller's absence. Looking ahead, Zeller's next chance to play will be against the Spurs on Tuesday.

M. Kidd-Gilchrist - SF
Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion) will not play Sunday against Toronto.
The Hornets will be without Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Zeller and Nic Batum once again Sunday as they head into the second game of a back-to-back. This will mark Kidd-Gilchrist's third straight absence, and he should be considered optimistically questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

J. Nurkic - C
Nurkic furnished 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 31 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 117-112 win over the Pistons on Saturday.
Nurkic turned in an efficient, well-balanced effort in the ongoing absence of C.J. McCollum (knee), checking in as the third wheel scoring-wise behind Damian Lillard and Al-Farouq Aminu. The big man did see a five-game double-double streak snapped in the tough matchup down low versus Andre Drummond, but he remains a highly dependable asset at center across all formats. Moreover, with McCollum set to also miss Monday's game versus the Nets, Nurkic could make for an especially rewarding play in daily formats against a Brooklyn squad that just surrendered a 33-point, 20-rebound, six-block effort to the Lakers' JaVale McGee on Friday.

T. Parker - PG
Parker (personal) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Raptors.
Parker is away from the team while tending to a personal matter, so expect Devonte Graham to pick up increased minutes as the backup to Kemba Walker.

A. Aminu - SF
Aminu totaled 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 37 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 117-112 win over the Pistons on Saturday.
Aminu once again stepped up his involvement on the offensive end in what was C.J. McCollum's third straight absence due to a knee strain. The veteran forward's 13 shot attempts equaled a season high, while his scoring tally represented a new high-water mark on the campaign. Aminu has shot over 60.0 percent in two of the three games McCollum has missed, and he could well be called upon for a similarly elevated offensive role again in a favorable matchup versus the Nets on Monday.

A. Drummond - C
Drummond generated 19 points (6-11 FG, 7-7 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 39 minutes in the Pistons' 117-112 loss to the Trail Blazers on Saturday.
Just another signature line for Drummond, who's now double-doubled in five straight. The veteran big man continues to supplement his scoring and rebounding nicely with defensive stats, recording at least a steal and a block in three consecutive games and at least one theft in four straight overall. Drummond is now equaling or setting new career highs in points (17.4) and steals (1.6) as he continues to serve as one of the surest propositions at center in any format at a crucial time of the fantasy season.

R. Jackson - PG
Jackson poured in 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 28 minutes in the Pistons' 117-112 loss to the Trail Blazers on Saturday.
Jackson checked in as the second-leading scorer on the night for the Pistons, extending what is now a four-game stretch of solid shooting. The veteran has drained 45.5 percent or better of his attempts in each contest during that span, and he's gone 7-for-15 from distance in his last pair of contests. Jackson has scored at least 20 points in three of the last five as well, upping his overall value in a crucial portion of the fantasy season.
