    Gary Trent Jr. Aug 9 8:10am ET

    Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. continued with his good play on Saturday, racking up 22 points with six triples in a loss to the Clippers. Unfortunately, he only managed to add one assist and one steal to his line. Trent Jr. has been one of the breakout stars of the bubble games. He's scored 20-plus points in three of the last four games and he's logged at least 34 minutes in every one of them. Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, Jusuf Nurkic, and even Carmelo Anthony get the most attention by fantasy players among Portland players, but Trent Jr. has earned a lot of respect with his recent performances as well.

    Jusuf Nurkic Aug 9 8:10am ET

    Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic was very close to a triple-double on Saturday against the Clippers, finishing a 122-117 loss with 10 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists. He also had a pair of steals while shooting 3-for-8 from the floor. Nurkic suffered a horrible leg injury in March 2019, but he's come back very strongly, filling up the stat sheet in various ways. He'll find it tough to dominate next in a matchup against the Sixers and Joel Embiid, but it will certainly be a very exciting battle to watch.

    Reggie Jackson Aug 9 8:00am ET

    Los Angeles Clippers point guard Reggie Jackson had a good 17-point outing in Saturday's win over Portland, shooting 6-for-14 from the field while logging a team-high 35 minutes. Kawhi Leonard (rest) and Patrick Beverley (calf) both sat this one out which allowed Jackson to take a bigger role. He also had five assists in the game with two rebounds. Jackson is a solid player, but he needs enough minutes to be a useful fantasy piece and that's sadly not guaranteed whilst he's with the Clippers.

    Landry Shamet Aug 9 8:00am ET

    Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Landry Shamet broke out of a slump on Saturday, finishing a 122-117 win over the Blazers with 19 points. He got an opportunity to start, and ended up delivering three three-point bombs with 6-for-12 overall shooting from the field. Shamet had three rebounds and three assists as well in 34 minutes of action. He had managed 18 points in total in his first four games since the restart, so this was a really good outing by him. The Clippers play again on Sunday against Brooklyn, with Kawhi Leonard (rest) returning which will be a big blow for Shamet's usage rate. The Nets also have a decent defensive record against opposing shooting guards.

    Paul George Aug 9 8:00am ET

    Los Angeles Clippers guard/forward Paul George scored a team-high 21 points in Saturday's 122-117 win over Portland. He shot 8-for-16 from the field and a nice 3-for-6 from outside in 28 minutes of action. Kawhi Leonard (rest) was completely missing, and the Clippers also pulled George from the floor with five minutes left to play. He did a good job in limited minutes, adding six rebounds, four assists and two steals to his line. Kawhi will return on Sunday against Brooklyn, and the Clippers may decide to rest George in that game, so you should keep your eyes peeled for any lineup news.

    Nikola Jokic Aug 8 7:30pm ET

    Denver Nuggets centerNikola Jokic's all-around play resulted in a double-overtime victory against the Jazz. With a stat line of 30 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists, he was just three dimes short of his 14th triple-double of the season. Jokic converted on 11 of his 21 field-goal attempts, and he also came up with three steals. He bounced back in a major way from his eight-point outing against the Trail Blazers on Thursday. Considering Denver's next opponent, the Los Angeles Lakers, have the top seed in the Western Conference locked up, the Serbian is in a prime position to continue his streak of tremendous performances.

    Russell Westbrook Aug 8 3:20pm ET

    Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. The team is likely going to take the cautious approach during the seeding games, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect Westbrook out there. Eric Gordon (ankle) is doubtful as well, which leaves the Rockets without a ton of depth. James Harden, Ben McLemore, and Danuel House will see their playing time and usage skyrocket if both players sit out.

    Eric Gordon Aug 8 3:10pm ET

    Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. He has been out since late July and was projected to miss roughly two weeks. He is nearing the end of that timetable, but we'll see when he actually gets out there again. The team is hopeful that Gordon could return for a few seeding games before the playoffs begin. Danuel House and Ben McLemore will continue to see more playing time until Gordon is ready. However, James Harden and Russell Westbrook (quad) are the only guys with great fantasy value every game.

    Ben Simmons Aug 8 3:00pm ET

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons (knee) is set to undergo surgery to remove a loose body from his left knee. Simmons is set to leave the bubble to undergo this procedure and it's unclear when he'll return. There's a good chance that Simmons doesn't return at all during the postseason. This is a huge blow to the Sixers, but will open up opportunities for some other players. Al Horford should move into the starting five with Shake Milton and Joel Embiid seeing a higher usage going forward.

    Seth Curry Aug 8 3:00pm ET

    Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry (leg) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He was originally listed as questionable for this one, but it sounds like shootaround went well for Curry. It's unclear whether or not he'll be limited at all coming back from his leg injury. Some of the Mavs guards will lose a few minutes, but most of them weren't playing well anyway. Curry could be an intriguing DFS option, assuming he plays his normal amount of minutes.

    Jamal Murray Aug 8 2:50pm ET

    Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (hamstring) will suit up for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. He'll return from a four game absence, which means Monte Morris will head back to the second unit. P.J. Dozier might end up dropping out of the rotation altogether. Murray could be limited during his first game back, so he might be a risky DFS option for Saturday's slate.

    Emmanuel Mudiay Aug 8 2:50pm ET

    Utah Jazz guard Emmanuel Mudiay (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. He is dealing with left knee soreness, so the team will give him a day off during the second leg of the back-to-back set. Mike Conley (knee) is back in action, so Mudiay wouldn't have much of a role anyway. Conley is looking like a reliable DFS option for Saturday, assuming Donovan Mitchell (leg) remains sidelined.

    Donovan Mitchell Aug 8 1:40pm ET

    Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (leg) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. Mike Conley (knee) and Rudy Gobert (rest) are back in the lineup after sitting out the front end of the back-to-back set. Mitchell is dealing with a lower left leg strain, so the team might want to be cautious here. Conley and Gobert would be asked to do the heavy lifting if Mitchell is out again. Miye Oni could be a dart throw for DFS contests, assuming Mitchell is absent.

    Aron Baynes Aug 8 1:40pm ET

    Phoenix Suns center Aron Baynes (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat. He has not played in a game during the bubble yet. However, the team is 4-0 without Baynes, so his absence isn't hurting the team. Deandre Ayton is healthy and playing well, so the team is in no rush to get Baynes back on the court. He won't have much fantasy value anyway, so fantasy owners can continue to expect Ayton to carry the load down low.

    Danny Green Aug 8 1:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He is dealing with left hip soreness, so it's unclear if he'll be ready in time for Monday's contest. The Lakers are likely going to use a committee approach to fill the void left by Green. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are both healthy and will be asked to carry the load on offense. Both are going to be attractive DFS options like most nights, but maybe have a little bit more value with Green sidelined.

    Rudy Gobert Aug 8 1:20pm ET

    Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (rest) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. He sat out of the front end of a back-to-back set in order to rest. Tony Bradley and Ed Davis will lose minutes and fantasy value with Gobert back in the rotation. He was only out due to rest, so Gobert should be back to his normal amount of minutes on Saturday.

    Mike Conley Aug 8 1:10pm ET

    Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley (knee) is not currently listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. He sat out of the front end of the back-to-back set due to right knee soreness. It's unclear whether or not the team plans to limit Conley in this one. Donovan Mitchell (leg) has been ruled out for this one, which means Conley should see an uptick in usage. Conley could make for an intriguing DFS option for Saturday's slate.

    Goga Bitadze Aug 8 1:00pm ET

    Indiana Pacers center Goga Bitadze mentioned on Friday that his left knee continues to give him problems. It has been something he has been battling with all season long. "Getting back from the hiatus. It hurt me a lot more. I basically couldn't run... It's hard for me to get back ready to play," says Bitadze. He underwent an MRI and the doctor said that everything was good. The team is likely going to hold out Bitadze until the knee issue goes away. The Pacers are fairly limited with Domantas Sabonis (foot) sidelined as well. Myles Turner will see plenty of playing time and is worth a look in DFS contests.

    Jamal Murray Aug 8 1:00pm ET

    Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. The Nuggets are fairly banged up with Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) both out and Troy Daniels (hip) listed as questionable. Monte Morris is expected to get another start with P.J. Dozier backing him up off the bench. Neither player is a great fantasy option, but could be a low-cost pick for Saturday's slate.

    Will Barton Aug 8 12:50pm ET

    Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris (hip) and forward Will Barton (knee) have been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. It's unclear when these two will get back on the court. There's a good chance that they both sit out during all the seeding games. Michael Porter Jr. will remain a must-have DFS option, while the Nuggets are banged up. Torrey Craig should see more minutes as well, but he won't be quite as attractive of a fantasy option.
