  • Returns to bench
    McGowens isn't in the starting five for Saturday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Brandon Miller will reclaim his starting spot from McGowens after missing the previous game with an ankle injury. McGowens is averaging 4.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 15.9 minutes across his last 10 appearances coming off the bench this season. Today, 1:39 pm
  • Devin Booker, Eric Gordon questionable Saturday
    Devin Booker (right ankle sprain) and Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) are questionable for Saturday’s game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: While Booker didn’t play in Friday’s loss to the Nuggets, Gordon started and played 33 minutes. Should Booker return but Gordon sits, it would be an easy situation for Frank Vogel to address, with the former returning to the starting lineup. However, if both are ruled out, Jordan Goodwin could be the player most likely to move into the starting lineup. Rotoworld Today, 12:59 pm
    Devin Booker PHX - PG,SG,SF
  • Suiting up against Denver
    Murray (back) is available for Saturday's game versus the Nuggets, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.

    Advice: Murray has been upgraded from questionable to available Saturday after missing the previous four games with back soreness. The second-year forward will likely replace Chris Duarte in the starting five against Denver. Today, 12:51 pm
  • Anthony Edwards (hip) downgraded to out Saturday
    Anthony Edwards (right hip pointer) has been ruled out for Saturday’s game against the Hornets.

    Advice: After Saturday, the Timberwolves won’t play again until Wednesday, giving Edwards a few more days to get back to full strength. Troy Brown Jr. will remain in the starting lineup, but Nickeil Alexander-Walker (starting for Jaden McDaniels) is a better streamer in this spot. Rotoworld Today, 12:43 pm
  • Questionable for Saturday
    Gordon is listed as questionable for Saturday's game versus the Grizzlies due to

    Advice: Gordon is in danger of missing just his second game of the season Saturday due to a knee injury. With Devin Booker (ankle) questionable and Bradley Beal (back) still out, Jordan Goodwin, Grayson Allen and Saben Lee could all see increased minutes. Today, 12:42 pm
    Eric Gordon PHX - SG,SF
  • Brandon Miller, Nick Richards available Saturday
    Brandon Miller (left ankle sprain) and Nick Richards (concussion protocol) are available for Saturday’s game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Miller and Richards being back in action means there will be multiple changes to the Hornets’ rotation. The former will be back in the starting lineup, with Bryce McGowens dropping to the bench, where he isn’t worth streaming. As for Richards, he’ll return to the backup center role, where there may not be as many minutes available. PJ Washington can play the four or the five, so his minutes should be safe. JT Thor could wind up being the biggest loser here, as he could fall out of the rotation completely. Rotoworld Today, 12:36 pm
  • Out again
    Wiggins (finger) will remain sidelined for Saturday's game against the Clippers, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Wiggins warmed up pregame before the decision was made for him to sit. However, he appears to be nearing a return from what will be a two-game absence. In his place, Moses Moody and Jonathan Kuminga are the prime candidates to see increased minutes. Today, 12:14 pm
