UPDATE – 6:45pm ET
Lou Williams OUT. Austin Rivers probable. River should see around 35 minutes with a little more usage now that Lou is out.
Kevin Love OUT. Larry Nance and Jeff Green should see reasonable minutes. Green can be considered in all formats.
LeBron James will be limited. He will likely be pulled after scoring ten points. Obviously rule him out for DFS purposes. It’s difficult to trust the Cleveland rotation, as we aren’t sure who will play what minutes tonight.
Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum, & Al Horford OUT. Marcus Morris doubtful. Jonathan Gibson emerges as a nice value pick. Greg Monroe and Aron Baynes will see a boost as well, jumping as borderline cash playable. Shane Larkin and Abdel Nadar are now value fillers.
Dario Saric probable. We still like Ersan Ilyasova even in the wake of this news.
DJ Augustin, Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic with minutes limits. Stay away from them tonight. Mario Hezonja is a beneficiary in the wake of this news, but he’s still only a borderline GPP Play with all the value tonight.
Eric Gordon questionable. This makes Gerald Green a stronger play, especially if Gordon and the other regulars play less minutes.
Lonzo Ball & Brandon Ingram OUT. Kyle Kuzma highly questionable. This should keep Josh Hart in the DFS picture with heavy minutes and usage.
INJURY REPORT – 1:10pm ET
UPDATE will come at 7:00pm ET. Games start at 8:00pm ET tonight, so the update will come closer to 7:00 ET.
FanDuel not including three late games on main slate. Utah-Portland, Houston-Sacramento, and Lakers-Clippers are not on FD main slate. They are included on DraftKings and Yahoo.
Giannis Antetkounmpo will play. The Bucks have incentive to win and this is a competitive matchup against Philadelphia, making Giannis a worthy expenditure.
Goran Dragic doubtful. This helps Dwyane Wade and Tyler Johnson see more playing time and usage. Wade makes for a nice value on FanDuel.
Dario Saric questionable. If he’s out, Ersan Ilyasova and Robert Covington will pick up the slack.
Andre Drummond doubtful. Eric Moreland should see plenty of work in the frontcourt with Griffin and Drummond sitting.
Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram questionable. There’s a good chance all three of them won’t play again, which would boost Josh Hart.
John Wall doubtful. Tomas Satoransky will benefit the most. Bradley Beal could see an uptick, but his minutes may be curbed as well.
Austin Rivers & Lou Williams questionable. Take note that Milos Teodosic and Jawun Evans are already out. If Rivers and Lou join them, Tyrone Wallace and Sindarius Thornwell will run the show.
Otto Porter Jr questionable. John Wall is already doubtful, so there’s a good chance Porter sits out as well. Kelly Oubre Jr is a nice value play assuming Porter rests.
These players will continue to miss time: Joel Embiid, Blake Griffin, Denzel Valentine, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, Tim Hadaway Jr, Enes Kanter, Marc Gasol, Tyreke Evans, Marcus Smart, Kyrie Irving
