  • Player Notes
    Kyrie Irving Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving (knee) said he's healthy and will play in Sunday's All-Star game. He missed the last two games heading into the break, but that was likely just the Celtics being cautious. It was reported on Friday that Irving was very close to returning. Irving should be fine to play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Anthony Davis Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis (shoulder) is unsure if he'll play in Sunday's All-Star game. Davis injured his shoulder during Thursday's contest, but it doesn't sound too serious. Davis wants to play throughout the rest of the regular season, but it's unclear if he'll be ready to play right after the break.

    Wilson Chandler Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Wilson Chandler (quad) is expected to return to practice after the All-Star break. He was traded to the Clippers at the deadline, but has yet to make his debut for Los Angeles. However, the Clippers have plenty of depth, so Chandler won't be relevant in fantasy leagues.

    Aron Baynes Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes (foot) said that he'll return late February or possibly early March. Baynes has been sidelined since Feb. 2 with a left foot contusion. He could return right after the All-Star break, but it's unclear if that's going to happen right now. Daniel Theis is lose most of his value and plenty of minutes once Baynes returns.

    Kris Dunn Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn (tailbone) should be fine to return to the lineup after the All-Star break, according to head coach Jim Boylen. Dunn missed Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, but it sounds like the Bulls were just being cautious. It appears Dunn will be back in the starting five after the break. The Bulls are not committed to Dunn long-term yet, but he should continue to have fantasy value throughout the season.

    Andre Roberson Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Andre Roberson (knee) could still be able to return this season, according to head coach Billy Donovan. Roberson is recovering from left knee surgery, but has not ruled out the idea of playing this season. There is a chance that Roberson returns at the end of the regular season or possibly for the playoffs. However, he's not going to have an impact in fantasy basketball this season.

    Anthony Davis Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis (shoulder) says that he plans to play in Sunday's All-Star game. However, that is going to be dependent on how Davis responds to the treatment he was given for his muscle contusion. Assuming Davis plays in the All-Star game then he'll be ready for Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers.

    Kyrie Irving Feb 16 11:10pm ET

    Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving (knee) is very close to a return, according to general manager Danny Ainge. Irving is traveling to Charlotte for the All-Star weekend, but it's unclear if he'll participate in Sunday's All-Star game. Irving sat out the last two games before the break, but he should return to the lineup after the All-Star break.

    Goran Dragic Feb 15 3:10pm ET

    Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic (knee) is reportedly making solid progress and should return shortly after the All-Star break. Dragic was given a six to eight week timetable and he's currently at week eight. Once Dragic is back, Justise Winslow will return to the bench. Dion Waiters and Dwyane Wade should lose some minutes as well. Dragic should be added in all leagues where he was dropped. He could return as early as the first game after the break.

    Emmanuel Mudiay Feb 15 2:50pm ET

    New York Knicks guard Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) is unsure whether or not he'll be in the rotation once he returns from injury. Mudiay has missed the last 11 games due to a strained left shoulder. Dennis Smith Jr. and Kadeem Allen have made it difficult for Mudiay to carve out a role in the Knicks rotation. Fantasy owners can go ahead and leave Mudiay on the waiver wire right now.

    Jonathan Isaac Feb 15 11:50am ET

    Orlando Magic power forward Jonathan Isaac had a solid performance Thursday against the Charlotte Hornets. Isaac scored 16 points going six for nine from the floor with six boards in the contest. In the last five games, Issac has really turned it on averaging 15.8 points and 2.8 blocks a game. The Chicago Bulls will be the next opponent for the Magic and Isaac on February 22nd. The Bulls have the tenth slowest pace of play so hopefully, Isaac gets enough opportunities to produce for fantasy owners.

    Aaron Gordon Feb 15 11:50am ET

    Orlando Magic power forward Aaron Gordon had a rough outing versus the Charlotte Hornets Thursday. Gordon scored 10 points going four for seventeen from the floor with 11 assists. Since the start of February Gordon has really performed poorly averaging 15.4 points a game while shooting 40.2 percent from the field. The next game for the Magic and Gordon will be the Chicago Bulls on February 22nd. The Bulls give up the seventh most points per one hundred possessions so hopefully, Gordon can start producing for fantasy owners.

    Nikola Vucevic Feb 15 11:50am ET

    Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic played very well Thursday against the Charlotte Hornets. Vucevic scored 17 points going seven for thirteen from the field. In addition to Vucevic's scoring production, he also recorded 11 boards and four assists. This was the third straight game for Vucevic shooting 50 percent or better from the field. The Chicago Bulls will be the first opponent for the Magic and Vucevic coming out of the All-Star break. The Bulls have the tenth worst rebounding rate in the NBA and with Vucevic's rebounding being a strength expect him to have a solid game.

    Terrence Ross Feb 15 11:50am ET

    Orlando Magic shooting guard Terrence Ross had a solid performance versus the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday. Ross scored 21 points shooting 8-of-15 from the floor with three of those buckets coming from long-range. This has been a career year for Ross as he has averaged 14.6 points and 3.3 assists a game both of which are career highs. The next opponent for the Magic and Ross are the Chicago Bulls on February 22nd. The Bulls have the seventh worst defensive rating in the league so Ross should be a great DFS option coming out of the All-Star break.

    Kemba Walker Feb 15 11:50am ET

    Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker didn't have a strong game Wednesday against the Orlando Magic. Walker scored 10 points shooting 4-of-20 from the floor with three assists. For Walker, this proved all good things must come to an end as the previous five games Walker scored 30 points or more in each contest. During that five-game span, Walker averaged 34 points and seven assists. The Hornets first opponent coming out of the All-Star break will be the Washington Wizards on February 22nd. The Wizards have the fifth worst defensive rating so Walker should be a solid option for DFS players.

    Trae Young Feb 15 10:20am ET

    Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young had a rough shooting night against the Knicks on Thursday, but he did manage to get another double-double with 16 points and 11 assists. He's been something of a double-double machine as of late, recording four of them in the last six games. Young's shooting has been hit or miss all season, but he's been averaging very good numbers in February with 19.4 points, 9.4 assists, and 4.6 rebounds. He gets a solid matchup against Detroit next to continue his good run. Opposing point guards are shooting 45.5 percent against the Pistons this season.

    Dewayne Dedmon Feb 15 10:10am ET

    Atlanta Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon went for 21 points in Thursday's loss to the Knicks, finishing as the team's leading scorer. John Collins had only eight points and the rest of the starters combined just 26. Dedmon dropped four three-point bombs on New York, shooting 6-for-10 overall from the field. He was quiet on the boards with only two rebounds, but he did manage to get one steal and one block. Dedmon has scored at least 10 points in 11 of his last 13 outings, and he should do well again against the Pistons next Friday, but don't expect him to get many rebounds vs. Andre Drummond.

    Kadeem Allen Feb 15 10:10am ET

    New York Knicks guard Kadeem Allen continued his strong play in Thursday's win over Atlanta, coming just short of a double-double with 14 points and nine assists. He shot 5-for-9 from the field in 24 minutes off the bench. The Knicks have some injuries and they have gone into full tank mode, which gives obscure guys like Allen a chance to showcase their talents. Allen has taken his opportunity with both hands, scoring 10.1 points in 22.5 minutes and dishing out 4.5 assists. He's produced at least 13 points in four straight games.

    DeAndre Jordan Feb 15 10:00am ET

    New York Knicks center DeAndre Jordan grabbed his 35th double-double of the season on Thursday against Atlanta, finishing with 10 points and 13 rebounds. He had a perfect shooting night, going 4-for-4 from the field and 2-for-2 from the line. By swatting away three shots, DJ recorded his fifth game with over two blocks as well. Following the All-Star break, Jordan will get the challenge of trying to stop Karl-Anthony Towns next Friday. He's averaged 15 points and 12.5 rebounds in two previous meetings against Minnesota this season.

    Dennis Smith Jr. Feb 15 10:00am ET

    New York Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. helped the team end a franchise-worst, 18-game losing streak with a 19-point effort on Thursday. He played a very efficient game in a 106-91 win against the Hawks, missing just three of his 10 shots and committing only one turnover in 32 minutes on the floor. Smith Jr. bagged seven dimes and also had one assist. His start as a Knick has been up and down, but the upside is there for all to see. New York will be back in action next Friday against Minnesota, who have done well in limiting opposing point guards from scoring, but they have allowed the second-most assists to them.
