Player Notes

  • Still out
    Harris (shoulder) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Knicks.

    Advice: Harris' absence streak will extend to 12 games Thursday due to a right shoulder sprain. There is no current timetable for his return. 3 minutes ago
    Joe Harris DET - SG,SF
  • Officially listed questionable
    Bogdanovic (calf) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Lakers.

    Advice: Bogdanovic has yet to make his season debut due to a right calf strain, but his upgraded status is a good sign that he's nearing a return. The veteran forward started in all 59 of his appearances for Detroit in 2022-23. 5 minutes ago
  • Uncertain to play Friday
    Booker admitted after Wednesday's 112-105 loss to the Raptors that he's uncertain if he'll be available for Friday's game against the Nuggets after he appeared to injure his right ankle in the third quarter of the contest, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. "It's a long flight [back to Phoenix from Toronto]," Booker said. "See how it feels."

    Advice: Though Booker was never ruled out at any point Wednesday, he made two visits to the locker room during the contest to get his ankle checked out. The injury likely explains in part why Booker turned in his worst stat line of the season Wednesday, as he finished with eight points (2-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes. He'll presumably be re-evaluated Thursday before the Suns provide an update on his status later in the day. 16 minutes ago
    Devin Booker PHX - PG,SG,SF
  • Absent from shootaround
    Edwards (hip) didn't participate in shootaround ahead of Thursday's game versus the Jazz, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Advice: Edwards is listed as doubtful for Thursday's contest due to a right hip contusion he suffered against the Thunder. If he's ruled out, the 22-year-old guard will miss his first game of the season. More minutes and usage could be available for Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Kyle Anderson, Troy Brown and Shake Milton. 38 minutes ago
  • Returns in bench role
    Reddish (groin) was held scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and contributed two assists in 20 minutes in Wednesday's 133-107 win over the Pistons.

    Advice: Reddish had started seven consecutive games before he missed the Lakers' subsequent three contests with a right groin strain. Though Reddish was cleared ahead of Wednesday's contest, head coach Darvin Ham elected to bring the 24-year-old off the bench, while Max Christie started on the wing alongside Taurean Prince. Christie (five points, two rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes) contributed little during his time on the court, so the Lakers could choose to return Reddish to the top unit for the second half of the back-to-back set Thursday in Oklahoma City. 42 minutes ago

  • Excellent against Sacramento
    Harden ended Wednesday's 131-117 victory over the Kings with 26 points (8-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, six assists and five steals over 39 minutes.

    Advice: Harden has had a rough start to his Clippers tenure, but this was his best outing of the season by a wide margin after notching season-best marks in points and steals. Harden has yet to post numbers similar to what he's done during most of his career, but maybe this is a sign that he's getting more comfortable on offense, and that would likely lead to an uptick in his numbers sooner rather than later. The consistency he can maintain on a game-to-game basis will be key to seeing whether his numbers improve in the long run or not. Today, 8:19 am
  • Shines against Sacramento
    Leonard provided 34 points (14-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 131-117 victory over the Kings.

    Advice: Leonard barely missed from the field and played a major role in the win over the Kings, pacing the Clippers in scoring and making his presence felt on defense as well, racking up multiple blocks and ending just one rebound shy of a double-double. This was Leonard's most complete game of the entire season, but the veteran forward has been excellent of late. Over his last five outings, he's averaging 23.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals per contest. Today, 8:04 am
  • Active off bench despite loss
    Monk recorded 15 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 131-117 loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Monk continues to make a steady impact off the bench for the Kings, and despite his role, his scoring prowess is enough to make him relevant in fantasy, particularly for managers who are in dire need of a scoring punch. Monk has scored at least 15 points in three games in a row while netting in double digits in six of his last seven appearances. Today, 7:51 am
  • Says he'll play Thursday
    Thomas (ankle) said that he is good to go for Thursday's game versus the Hornets, Evan Barnes of Newsday reports.

    Advice: Thomas is set to return to action Thursday after a nine-game absence due to a left ankle sprain. The 22-year-old guard was averaging 26.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 32.4 minutes across eight appearances before going down to injury. However, Thomas will likely be on a minutes restriction as he's eased back into game shape. Today, 7:41 am
