Player Notes

  • Norman Powell (groin) still out Saturday vs. Kings
    Norman Powell (left groin strain) will remain sidelined for Saturdays' game against the Kings. 

    Advice: Powell injured his groin during Tuesday's win over the Blazers, and it'll hold him out Saturday. There's a chance Paul George and Kawhi Leonard return Saturday, so Powell's availability won't impact the starting lineup. Terance Mann and Amir Coffey will play the backup wing minutes if PG and Kawhi are back. NBCSportsEDGE.com 26 minutes ago
  • Kawhi Leonard (right ankle) questionable Saturday
    Kawhi Leonard (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Kawhi has been out about a week and a half with this ankle issue, so managers will be grateful that he could be back soon. He hasn't been great when he's on the floor this season, but on the court is better than in an IL spot. His return would likely send Terance Mann back to the bench. NBCSportsEDGE.com 29 minutes ago

  • Paul George, Kawhi Leonard questionable Saturday
    Paul George (right hamstring tendon strain) and Kawhi Leonard (ankle) are both questionable to play on Saturday against the Kings.

    Advice: It's been about two weeks since we last saw PG take the court, so fantasy managers will be thrilled to have him back if he suits up. Both George and Leonard will practice with the team on Friday, which is a good sign that they're progressing. When they return to the lineup, Amir Coffey and Terance Mann will likely return to bench roles. However, with how frequently PG and Kawhi have been sidelined, Coffey and Mann aren't worth dropping quite yet. NBCSportsEDGE.com 37 minutes ago

  • Remains sidelined Saturday
    Arcidiacano (ankle) is out for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Arcidiacano will miss his second consecutive game due to a left ankle sprain. His next opportunity to play will be in Sunday's game against the Cavaliers. Rotowire.com 52 minutes ago
  • Questionable Saturday
    Muscala (finger) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Muscala sustained a broken left pinky finger in late November and was expected to miss at least two weeks, but he'll at least be in the mix to return Saturday. It wouldn't be surprising to see him held out once again, but his questionable designation is at least a step in the right direction. Rotowire.com 53 minutes ago
  • Called up to NBA
    Bassey will join the San Antonio Spurs for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Bruno Passos of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    Advice: Bassey's promotion is not surprising considering the Spurs injury report lists Jakob Poeltl (knee), Jeremy Sochan (quadriceps) and Doug McDermott (ankle) as out for the contest. Bassey will likely share center minutes with Zach Collins, however, given Bassey is capable of putting up fantasy numbers in limited minutes, he remains an intriguing streaming option.

  • Questionable at Minnesota
    Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: The emerging star missed Wednesday's matchup against the Spurs -- his second absence of the season. If he remains out Saturday, Jalen Williams and Aleksej Pokusevski may start again. In November, Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 31.1 points, 5.7 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks in 35.7 minutes. Rotowire.com 55 minutes ago
  • Officially ruled out
    McDermott (ankle) won't play in Friday's matchup with the Pelicans.

    Advice: McDermott has been downgraded from unlikely to out for Friday's game. With Jeremy Sochan (quadriceps) also out, Keita Bates-Diop and Isaiah Roby should be in store for extended minutes. McDermott's next opportunity to play is Sunday's game against Phoenix. Rotowire.com 56 minutes ago
  • Officially out Friday
    Richardson (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Richardson was doubtful ahead of Friday's matchup and will officially be held out for a fifth consecutive game due to a right ankle sprain. His next chance to suit up will be Sunday against Phoenix. Rotowire.com 57 minutes ago
