• Gary Payton II (illness) questionable for Thursday
    Gary Payton II (illness) is questionable for Thursday’s game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Payton is back on the injury report after returning from a strained hamstring just before the All-Star break. A potential absence would not significantly impact fantasy basketball, but it would rob the Warriors of one of their best defenders. Rotoworld Today, 5:36 pm

  • Iffy to face Lakers
    Payton is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers due to illness, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Payton appears to have picked up an illness during the All-Star break and is at risk of missing Thursday's contest. If he can't go, expect Lester Quinones and Moses Moody to pick up some extra minutes. Rotowire.com Today, 5:35 pm

  • Cam Reddish, Max Christie questionable Thursday
    Cam Reddish (right ankle sprain) and Max Christie (right ankle sprain) are questionable for Thursday’s game against the Warriors.

    Advice: While Reddish has been sidelined since January 23, Christie has missed the Lakers’ last two games. Their returns will give the Lakers a welcome infusion of depth on the perimeter, as LeBron James (ankle) will not be available. However, Spencer Dinwiddie stands to experience a more significant boost regarding fantasy value than Reddish or Christie. Rotoworld Today, 5:09 pm

  • Iffy against Warriors
    Reddish (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Warriors, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Advice: Reddish hasn't played since Jan. 23 due to a right ankle injury. However, his questionable injury tag indicates that the 24-year-old forward is nearing a return. Rotowire.com Today, 4:59 pm

  • Snares questionable designation
    Christie (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Advice: Christie missed the Lakers' final three games before the All-Star break due to a sprained right ankle and is at risk of missing Thursday's contest as well. The game is the first leg of a back-to-back set, and Cam Reddish (ankle) is also questionable while LeBron James (ankle) has been ruled out, meaning that Christie could stumble into a larger workload if active.

  • Otto Porter Jr. (not with team) out on Thursday
    Otto Porter Jr. (not with team) has been ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Hornets.

    Advice: While Porter was made available for a potential Jazz debut on February 15 after being sidelined by a foot injury, the veteran forward did not play. His continued absence will not impact fantasy basketball, and it’s fair to wonder if Porter will see any action with the Jazz. Rotoworld Today, 4:36 pm
     
  • Won't play Thursday
    Porter is out for Thursday's game versus the Hornets due to being away from the team, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Advice: Porter has yet to make his Utah debut, so his absence won't affect the team's rotation. His next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup with San Antonio. Rotowire.com Today, 4:26 pm
     
  • Returns to practice, still out
    Ball (ankle) participated in Wednesday's practice and is progressing in his recovery but won't play in Thursday's game versus the Jazz, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Advice: Ball will miss his 12th straight game Thursday due to a right ankle injury. However, the star guard's return to practice and participation in on-court activities is a good sign that he will retake the floor soon. Ball's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Golden State. Rotowire.com Today, 4:04 pm

  • LaMelo Ball (ankle) practices with team Wednesday
    LaMelo Ball (right ankle tendinopathy) practiced with Charlotte on Wednesday but will remain sidelined for Thursday’s game against the Jazz.

    Advice: LaMelo is reportedly “progressing in his treatment and rehab on right ankle” and “doing on court activity and increasing his workload daily”. He hasn’t played since January 26th, and he has only played seven games since November. This update doesn’t tell us much about when he will be back, but when he does return to the floor, he will likely push Tre Mann to the bench. Rotoworld Today, 4:02 pm
