Sun Feb 508:19Giannis Antetokounmpo Logs His Third Triple-DoubleGiannis AntetokounmpoFBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded his third triple-double of the season on Saturday against Miami, dominating the matchup with 35 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists. He guided the team to a 123-115 victory, shooting 13-for-19 from the field and 9-for-16 at the charity stripe. In 36 minutes on the court, Giannis also managed to register one steal and one block with three turnovers. The Greek Freak is in the middle of a spectacular run, averaging 39.4 points, 14.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in seven games since returning to the lineup.
Sun Feb 507:38Stephen Curry Set To Undergo An MRIStephen CurryPGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry exited Saturday's win over Dallas with an apparent knee injury and is set to undergo an MRI scan after the initial X-rays came back negative. He was hurt in the third quarter and finished the game with 21 points, six rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes. The Warriors will be back in action Monday against OKC, so Curry has very little time to recover, even if it's not a serious injury. Jordan Poole should hop back into the starting unit if Curry is out, while the whole squad is set for a usage bump with their leader missing.
Sat Feb 414:51Klay Thompson Questionable On Saturday EveningKlay ThompsonSGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (illness) is questionable ahead of Saturday's matchup against the visiting Mavericks. Thompson and Draymond Green (calf) missed Thursday's loss to the Denver Nuggets, allowing Kevon Looney and Jonathan Kuminga to enter the starting lineup. Kuminga finished that one with 17 points and seven rebounds in 32 minutes and should be classified as a must-start if Thompson and Green aren't available on Saturday night. As far as Looney is concerned, he'll grab plenty of rebounds, although his upside on the scoring end is limited.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (calf) is questionable heading into Saturday's meeting with the Dallas Mavericks. The veteran was ruled out shortly before Thursday's loss to the Denver Nuggets, allowing Jonathan Kuminga to enter the starting lineup and finish with 17 points and seven rebounds in 32 minutes. If Green misses another one, Kuminga should continue to benefit, although his ceiling will decrease if Klay Thompson (illness) suits up.

Sat Feb 414:24Bradley Beal Questionable Versus BrooklynBradley BealSGWizardsFree Agent
Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (foot) is questionable heading into Saturday night's meeting with the Nets. The veteran scored a game-high 34 points on Friday in the loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. However, he's dealing with foot soreness, so the team may play it safe by keeping him out. If that's the case, Corey Kispert could take his spot in the rotation. The 23-year-old has averaged 10 points and shot 41% from deep in his 28 starts this season, so there is something there for those looking to fill the void in the lineup. However, Kyle Kuzma, Deni AvdijaandKristaps Porzingis could end up seeing the biggest bump in production against a Nets team down Kyrie Irving (calf), Kevin Durant (knee), ... [More]

Sat Feb 414:04Kyrie Irving Out On SaturdayKyrie IrvingPGCavaliersFree Agent
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving (calf) won't play on Saturday against the visiting Washington Wizards. The timing is coincidental, considering the multi-time All-Star requested a trade ahead of the February 9 trade deadline. With that said, fantasy managers will give him the benefit of the doubt, although it will be interesting if he's back in the lineup on Monday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. In the meantime, Kevin Durant (knee) remains unavailable, so Brooklyn will look for answers on the offensive end. As a result, guys like Nicolas Claxton, Royce O'Neale, Seth Curry, and Yuta Watanabe could see a noticeable uptick in fantasy production on Saturday evening.

Sat Feb 407:05Eric Gordon Continues Good Scoring RunEric GordonSGNO HornetsFree Agent
Houston Rockets guard/forward Eric Gordon led the team with 28 points on 10-for-15 shooting in Friday's 117-111 loss to Toronto. He went 2-for-5 from downtown and 6-for-7 at the foul line while adding three rebounds and five assists to his line with one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes of playing time. The veteran scorer is now averaging 25.7 points per game across the last three matchups. Houston has lost multiple key guys to injuries and Gordon has stepped up to the plate to lead the way. He even helped the team get back-to-back wins for only the third time this season before things went wrong again Friday night. Unfortunately, it appears that Gordon's good run might be over. He will likely sit out when Houston completes a back-to-back on Saturday and Jalen Green (calf) is expected to return for the game.
Sat Feb 407:04Bradley Beal Leads All Scorers With 34 PointsBradley BealSGWizardsFree Agent
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal managed to get to the 30-point plateau for only the fourth time this campaign in Friday's matchup against the Blazers, leading all scorers with a season-high 34 points on 14-for-25 shooting. He was 4-for-10 with the three-ball and capped off his line with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 32 minutes. Beal has even struggled to get to the 20-point mark, so it was great to see him being back to his best. He won't get any time to cool off either, with the Wizards scheduled to be back on the court Saturday versus Brooklyn. Washington's starman has averaged 22.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists in the matchup this season.
Sat Feb 400:06Stephen Curry Probable Against DallasStephen CurryPGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (leg) is expected to play on Saturday against Dallas. He has a lower leg contusion, although the probable designation is a good sign. With Klay Thompson (illness) and Draymond Green (calf) questionable, Curry could see extra opportunities on the offensive end on Saturday. Considering he scored 32 points versus the Mavs back in November is even more of a reason to get him in the lineup.

Fri Feb 323:52Giannis Antetokounmpo Likely To Play On SaturdayGiannis AntetokounmpoFBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is expected to play on Saturday against Miami. The 28-year-old had a massive 54-point, 19-rebound double-double on Thursday versus the Los Angeles Clippers, so his knee appears to be just fine. Of course, fantasy managers should check his official status ahead of opening tip. However, barring a setback, he should be good to go.

Fri Feb 323:33Kyle Lowry Out On Saturday With A Sore AnkleKyle LowryPGRaptorsFree Agent
Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry (ankle) won't play on Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks. The veteran has a sore left ankle, so Gabe Vincent (ankle) may take his spot in the lineup. He has played well in his five starts this season, averaging 18.0 points and 2.2 steals. However, Vincent is questionable, so if he doesn't suit up either, Tyler Herro should take over the ball-handling duties. At the same time, Max Strus and Haywood Highsmith could get most of the minutes from the bench, although the former has a higher upside for fantasy managers.

Fri Feb 319:40Rudy Gobert Back On Friday NightRudy GobertCJazzFree Agent
Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert (groin) will play on Friday against Orlando. He's been in and out of the lineup of late because of a groin strain, recently missing Wednesday's matchup versus the Golden State Warriors. However, Gobert is good to go and could thrive against a Magic team that won't have Wendell Carter Jr. (foot) underneath the basket.

Fri Feb 318:18LeBron James Questionable Against The PelicansLeBron JamesPFHeatFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's meeting in New Orleans. The 38-year-old remains on the injury report because of left ankle soreness, although this is nothing new. However, with James needing only 63 points to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's all-time scoring record, he may sit this one out in hopes of breaking the record in Los Angeles against OKC or Milwaukee.

Fri Feb 318:10Anthony Davis Expected To Suit Up Versus New OrleansAnthony DavisPFNO HornetsFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis (foot) is expected to play on Saturday versus the Pelicans. The 29-year-old will likely remain a fixture on the league's official injury report moving ahead after missing over a month because of a foot ailment. However, he should be good to go, so fantasy managers can plan on having him in the starting lineup. Davis has played well since returning, recently amassing a 31-point, 14-rebound double-double on Thursday in Indiana.

Fri Feb 316:06Kyrie Irving Requests A Trade Ahead Of DeadlineKyrie IrvingPGCavaliersFree Agent
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has reportedly requested a trade after declining a contract extension with the team. If his wishes aren't fulfilled, he's going to leave the team in free agency anyway. Shams Charania also reports that the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, and Dallas Mavericks have all emerged as potential suitors. In terms of fantasy value, Irving would still remain an elite fantasy contributor, but his ceiling may not be as high on another team as the Nets depended on Irving more than two of the three rumored suitors. The shakeup of role players and added assets in the trade could have the biggest fantasy effect. Managers will want to stay tuned for any updates on any official deals.

Fri Feb 311:19Anthony Davis Pushes Lakers To One-Point WinAnthony DavisPFNO HornetsFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis led the team in both points and rebounds as they took home a one-point victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. The 29-year-old registered 31 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two blocks while shooting 13-for-27 from the floor and 5-for-5 from the charity stripe. The Lakers have gone 3-1 over the four games that Davis has played since coming back from his lengthy absence. In those games, Davis is averaging 23.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.
Fri Feb 311:09Giannis Antetokounmpo Shreds The Clippers For 54 PointsGiannis AntetokounmpoFBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo went crazy on the Los Angeles Clippers during their one-point win on Thursday night. The Greek Freak dropped 54 points on 21-for-39 shooting while adding two threes and 10-for-15 from the line. He also chipped in 19 rebounds and two assists in the process. While his turnovers are at an all-time high and his percentages have dropped, he still shows why he's a two-time MVP on a regular basis.
Thu Feb 221:24Giannis Antetokounmpo To Play ThursdayGiannis AntetokounmpoFBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is available for Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The superstar forward was listed as probable coming into this game, so there wasn't much concern he'd miss this game. It sounds like the 28-year-old is fine. The expectation is that he'll have his normal workload in this game. Fantasy managers should double check their lineups and make sure Antetokounmpo is in there.

Thu Feb 221:21Marcus Morris Sr. Cleared For ThursdayMarcus MorrisPFSunsFree Agent
Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. (rib) has been cleared to play in Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He'll make his return to the court after a four-game absence. His return means that Luke Kennard heads back to the bench where he'll have less streaming appeal. The rest of the Clippers four starters remain unchanged for Thursday's matchup. Fantasy managers should make sure to get Morris back in their lineups.

Thu Feb 221:10Stephen Curry Good To Go On ThursdayStephen CurryPGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (shoulder) has been cleared to play in Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets. The superstar guard was tagged as questionable earlier in the day. Despite that, Curry has been cleared to play and should have his normal workload. That being said, Donte DiVincenzo could still have a boost in value with Klay Thompson on the sideline. Fantasy managers looking for a streaming option in deep leagues on Thursday should consider DiVincenzo.
