NBA Player News
|1/23/2017||Andre Iguodala, GS, G-F|
|The Warriors will rest Iguodala for Monday's game at Miami.
Analysis: Steve Kerr picked a good spot to give his veteran a breather in a matchup with the injury-riddled Heat. Iguodala has missed only one of Golden State's first 44 games, also getting a rest at Memphis on Dec. 10.
|1/23/2017||Jahlil Okafor, Phi, C|
|Okafor (sore right knee) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.
Analysis: The fallen-out-of-favor center had 12 points in 30 minutes starting in place of an injured Joel Embiid in Saturday's loss at Atlanta. With Embiid likely to miss two more games with a knee contusion, Okafor should get a further opportunity to showcase himself for a potential trade.
|1/23/2017||Jonas Jerebko, Bos, F|
|Jerebko missed Saturday's game against Portland with an illness but is expected to be active for Tuesday's visit to Washington.
Analysis: The perimeter-oriented forward had appeared in each of the Celtics' first 42 games but hasn't made a major impact off the bench, averaging 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds.
|1/23/2017||Joel Anthony, SA, F-C|
|The Spurs have signed Anthony to a 10-day contract after he was waived by them during the preseason.
Analysis: The nine-year NBA veteran last played with Detroit during the 2015-16 season. Anthony won two NBA titles as a reserve with Miami in 2012 and 2013. Anthony averaged 4.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in six preseason games with the Spurs this season. His career averages for the regular season are 2.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 471 games.
|1/23/2017||Gerald Green, Bos, G-F|
|Green is dealing with an illness and will not make the trip for Tuesday's game at Washington.
Analysis: The journeyman guard is one of several Boston players battling a flu bug. Green has been used sparingly for most of the season, so this news carries little fantasy relevance.
|1/23/2017||C.J. Wilcox, Orl, SG|
|Wilcox (left Achilles tendinitis) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Chicago.
Analysis: The third-year pro is an end-of-the-bench player who would hold minimal fantasy value even with the Magic dealing with a slew of injuries in the backcourt.
|1/23/2017||Bradley Beal, Was, SG|
|Beal is uncertain to play Monday at Charlotte due to soreness in his left foot.
Analysis: This may explain Beal's struggles of late, as he's shot 28.6 percent from the field and missed 20 of 21 attempts from 3-point range over his last three games. Lower-body issues have plagued the standout guard throughout his five-year career, therefore it would be no surprise if he sits a game or two.
|1/22/2017||Dion Waiters, Mia, G-F|
|Waiters tied a career high with 33 points on 12-of-19 shooting in Saturday's win over Milwaukee.
Analysis: This was Waiters' first 33-point performance since April 15, 2015, with Oklahoma City against Minnesota. In five games since moving into the starting lineup, Waiters has averaged 16.6 points, 4.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds.
|1/22/2017||Goran Dragic, Mia, G|
|Dragic continued an impressive stretch with 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting and six assists Saturday against Milwaukee.
Analysis: In his last nine games, Dragic has averaged 21.9 points on 52.6 percent shooting - including 44.4 percent from downtown - with 5.2 assists and 3.7 rebounds. He's hit 8 of 9 from long range in the past two games.
|1/22/2017||Dwyane Wade, Chi, G|
|Wade had 30 points and two key steals in the final minute of Chicago's 102-99 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Playing in a rare back-to-back, Wade bounced back after scoring four points in a loss to Atlanta.
|1/22/2017||Paul Zipser, Chi, F|
|Zipser scored a career-high 13 points against the Kings.
Analysis: In the last two games, the rookie has totaled 23 points.
|1/22/2017||DeMarcus Cousins, Sac, F-C|
|Cousins had 42 points, to go along with 14 rebounds, in a loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Cousins has scored 30 or more points 18 times this season.
|1/22/2017||Nikola Jokic, Den, F-C|
|Jokic scored 19 points and Denver beat the Clippers 123-98 on Saturday night for its fourth win in five games.
Analysis: Jokic, who also had 10 boards, has averaged 24.2 points in the last nine games and 11.5 rebounds in the last six.
|1/22/2017||Will Barton, Den, G-F|
|Barton had 18 points Saturday.
Analysis: He's averaged 20.7 points in the last three games.
|1/22/2017||Marreese Speights, LAC, F-C|
|Speights had 18 points Saturday.
Analysis: He's averaged 14.7 points in the last six games.
|1/22/2017||Shaun Livingston, GS, G|
|Livingston (rest) is reportedly getting the day off Sunday against the Magic for the Noon Eastern start time.
Analysis: Livingston offers solid minutes but no fantasy value.
|1/22/2017||George Hill, Uta, G|
|Hill scored a season-high 30 points and the Jazz led wire-to-wire in a 109-100 win over the Pacers on Saturday night. He was seven shy of his career high.
Analysis: If Hill can stay healthy he could be a solid fantasy contributor.
|1/22/2017||Thaddeus Young, Ind, F|
|Young had 19 points Saturday.
Analysis: Young is capable of nights like this but is still not a consistent fantasy contributor.
|1/22/2017||Gordon Hayward, Uta, G-F|
|Hayward scored 27 points Saturday.
Analysis: Hayward would be the perfect role player from a fantasy standpoint on a fantasy team with one of the league's great stars like LeBron, Steph, Cousins, Durant, Westbrook, etc.
|1/22/2017||Manu Ginobili, SA, G-F|
|Ginobili (back spasms) has been officially ruled out for Monday's game at Brooklyn.
Analysis: The 39-year-old hurt his back near the end of Saturday's overtime win at Cleveland. Considering his age and injury history, Ginobili seems like a long shot to return when the Spurs visit Toronto on Tuesday. He's averaging 8 points, so the veteran has little fantasy value these days.
