Cam Reddish Out Against Charlotte

  • Mon, January 17, 2022

New York Knicks forward Cam Reddish (ankle) won't play on Monday against the Charlotte Hornets. The 22-year-old has yet to make an appearance for his new team after being acquired from the Atlanta Hawks during the week. Additionally, head coach Tom Thibodeau recently indicated that Reddish might be out for "a while" as he continues to deal with a sprained right ankle. Nonetheless, while the former Duke Blue Devil hasn't been consistent this year, he's still worth a roster spot, at least until his role is revealed.

Nerlens Noel To Miss Monday's Game

  • Mon, January 17, 2022

New York Knicks center Nerlens Noel (knee) won't play during Monday's matinee against the visiting Hornets. Noel didn't suit up on Saturday because of left knee soreness, and he has now only played in one game since December 23. Mitchell Robinson should receive some additional minutes in the middle. However, Taj Gibson may continue see the floor more than usual versus Charlotte and until Noel can return to action.

Marcus Smart Out On Monday

  • Mon, January 17, 2022

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart won't play on Monday against New Orleans after entering COVID-19 health and safety protocols. The veteran has also been dealing with a thigh issue, and he is now in line to miss his fourth consecutive outing. As a result, Dennis Schroder will likely take his place once again, with the journeyman averaging 18.6 points, 4.9 assists, and 3.8 rebounds across 22 starts this year. Schroder should warrant consideration in all fantasy formats, although his shoddy shooting percentages can negatively affect category managers.

Marvin Bagley III Out On Sunday

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III (shoulder) won't play on Sunday against the Rockets. He is dealing with soreness in his right shoulder, an unfortunate development considering how well he's played as of late. Luckily, the team will get Richaun Holmes back after he missed over a month due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, while Chimezie Metu should continue to receive a hearty workload.

Tyrese Haliburton Enters COVID-19 Protocols

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Sacramento Kings guard Tyrese Haliburton entered the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols on Sunday. He won't play against the Rockets, and a few more absences are likely as well. The 21-year-old is averaging 13.7 points, 7.1 assists and 1.7 steals this season, so replacing him won't be easy. However, De'Aaron Fox will likely be the first in line to see an increase in usage, while Terence Davis and Davion Mitchell may see some extra minutes until Haliburton makes it back.

Richaun Holmes To Return On Sunday Night

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes will return on Sunday evening against the visiting Rockets. The big man hasn't played in over a month while navigating his way through COVID-19 protocols. However, he should get some meaningful work versus Houston, especially with Marvin Bagley III (shoulder) and Tristan Thompson (illness) both out.

Lonzo Ball To Miss Another Game Monday

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball (knee) won't play on Monday during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee game against the Grizzlies. The 24-year-old is currently battling left knee soreness, an injury that forced him to miss Saturday's matchup versus the Boston Celtics. With Zach LaVine (knee) out as well, Coby White will likely fill the void, with the former Tar Heel averaging 15 points and 4.3 assists while shooting nearly 44 percent from deep throughout seven starts during the 2021-22 campaign. He is expected to see a more significant workload for at least a few games, so fantasy managers in need should pick him up immediately.

Zach LaVine Avoids Serious Injury

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine (knee) underwent an MRI on Saturday morning. Fortunately, the results were encouraging, showing no signs of structural damage. The veteran injured his left knee during the first quarter of Friday's blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors and will be re-evaluated in about a week. While LaVine isn't expected to miss any significant time, it's a tough blow considering Chicago has also been without Alex Caruso (foot), Derrick Jones Jr. (knee), and Javonte Green (groin). Lonzo Ball (knee) also won't play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, so Coby White, Troy Brown Jr., and Ayo Dosunmu may see an increase in production. However, Nikola Vucevic and DeMar DeRozan should continue to lead the way offensively.

Bogdan Bogdanovic Won't Play Against Knicks

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Atlanta Hawks forward Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the New York Knicks. This is not a good sign with the Hawks already shorthanded for Saturday's game. Kevin Huerter, Danilo Gallinari (Achilles), and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will all see increased roles with Bogdanovic out. Gallinari is a little banged up, but has the most upside out of the three players. He could be worth looking at as a streaming option with the Hawks shorthanded for Saturday's contest.

Clint Capela Ruled Out Versus Knicks

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the New York Knicks. As expected, Capela will miss his fourth game in a row due to an ankle issue. Onyeka Okongwu should move into the starting five again with Capela sidelined. He could have some deep league appeal, but hasn't done much with his extended role. John Collins will see a bump in usage and could be worth a look in DFS contests with Capela unable to play.

LaMarcus Aldridge Not Available On Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Brooklyn Nets center LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Nicolas Claxton (hamstring) is also sidelined, so the Nets are going to be shorthanded in the front court. Aldridge will miss his fifth straight game here and can be dropped in most fantasy formats at this point. Day'Ron Sharpe and Blake Griffin should be asked to pick up the slack. Sharpe is the better fantasy option between the two right now. He could be worth a look as a streaming option with the Nets being shorthanded.

Kemba Walker Not Playing Against Hawks

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

New York Knicks guard Kemba Walker (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Walker is currently not with the organization due to his left knee soreness. Although, it's a one-game road trip, so possibly Walker returns next game. His next chance to play would be Monday against the Charlotte Hornets. Until then, Alec Burks and Evan Fournier will be asked to play more minutes. Fournier has been inconsistent this season, but has picked up the slack lately. Possibly, Fournier has some streaming appeal without Walker on the court here.

Kyrie Irving Unavailable For Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving (personal) won't be available for Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Irving is ineligible to play home games due to his vaccination status. There are rumors that Irving could become a full-time player soon, but who knows when that will happen. Until then, James Harden and Kevin Durant will run the show while Irving is sidelined. Also, Patty Mills should see a boost in value with Irving unavailable for Saturday. Both Harden and Durant should be popular DFS options for Saturday's slate.

Matisse Thybulle, Danny Green Ruled Out Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Philadelphia 76ers guard Matisse Thybulle (shoulder) and forward Danny Green (hip) have been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat. Thybulle took a fall during Friday's game and was forced out of that contest. As a result, Thybulle will miss at least Saturday's game. Green has been dealing with lingering hip pain for quite some time. He played 10 minutes on Wednesday and sat out on Friday. The absence of these two players should mean a spike in usage for Seth Curry. He is looking like a strong streaming option for Saturday.

Lonzo Ball Will Miss Saturday's Game

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Boston Celtics. This is a tough blow with the Bulls already without Zach LaVine (knee) and Alex Caruso (protocols) on Saturday. Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White will see significant playing time with Ball out now. White is the much better fantasy option between the two. Last game, White scored 20 points in 29 minutes and that was with Ball playing as well. Dosunmu finished with zero points in 32 minutes of action. That being said, White is a strong streaming option for Saturday and should be worth a look as a cheap DFS option for Saturday's slate.

Mo Bamba Listed As Questionable For Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba (toe) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. There's a good chance that Bamba misses his third straight game due to a right toe sprain. His absence would likely mean another start for Robin Lopez. It's worth noting that Wendell Carter Jr. (hamstring) has already been ruled out for this contest. That means, Chuma Okeke and Moritz Wagner should see more minutes and chances with the ball. Last game, Wagner scored 26 points in 28 minutes. Fantasy managers might want to ride the hot hand and stream Wagner here. Although, Okeke is probably the safest fantasy option out of the three players.

Khem Birch Not Available For Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Toronto Raptors forward Khem Birch (nose) is not available for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Birch suffered a nose fracture during Friday's contest. His timetable is unknown, but the organization reportedly has taken care of the issue. In the meantime, Chris Boucher should be asked to pick up the slack. He has looked fantastic lately and is a must-have option right now while he's on fire. Fantasy managers should check the waiver wire and see if Boucher is available. He should play a bigger role with Birch likely sidelined multiple games.

Larry Nance Jr. Remains Out Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Portland Trail Blazers forward Larry Nance Jr. (knee) will remain out for Saturday's game against the Washington Wizards. He was expected to be re-evaluated, but it appears the team isn't ready to clear him to play yet. Possibly, something changes closer to game time, but fantasy managers should expect to be without Nance for at least one more game. In the meantime, Robert Covington and Nassir Little will be asked to pick up the slack. Covington is the much better option between the two players. He is looking like a strong streaming option and has been a consistent DFS option lately.

Joel Embiid Uncertain For Saturday

  • Sat, January 15, 2022

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (elbow) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat. The Sixers will already be without three players, so losing Embiid is a tough blow. Andre Drummond would move into the starting five, assuming Embiid cannot go. Drummond would have decent streaming appeal and be a possible low cost DFS option for Saturday's slate. Fantasy managers will likely have to check back after shootaround for more information.
