Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic (leg) was expected to make his season debut against the Houston Rockets on March 15. However, the NBA has currently suspended play which means Nurkic will have to wait to take the court. The Blazers were expected to ease him back into action giving him around 15 minutes of play during his first game back. Nurkic will get more time to prepare himself now, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him getting more than 15 minutes when the NBA returns. Hassan Whiteside has been fantastic this season, so it's unlikely that Nurkic takes away many minutes from him. Nurkic could find himself having some fantasy value, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see.
Sacramento Kings guard/forward Buddy Hield (ankle) will start on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers. Hield suffered a sprained right ankle during the matchup against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday night but appears well enough to give it a go against the defending champs. The 28-year-old has logged heavy minutes throughout the year and gains additional fantasy appeal with Tyrese Haliburton (calf) out of the lineup. Keep him in mind in all formats.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma (foot) has been deemed questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup against Sacramento. Kuzma is dealing with a bruise on his right heel, which puts him in danger of joining Anthony Davis (Achilles) and LeBron James (ankle) on the sidelines. If he does play, however, he will automatically gain attention from fantasy managers in all formats. The fourth-year man is averaging nearly 15 points in 10 appearances as a starter this season, which is where he will likely begin the game against the Kings, if able.
Golden State Warriors forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (wrist) won't play against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday evening. The 25-year-old is dealing with a sprained left wrist, an injury that puts him in danger of being held out until after the All-Star break. While Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins will likely benefit in terms of usage and plus/minus differential, Kent Bazemore should gain fantasy appeal by drawing the start. Consider him a dart throw in late-night DFS contests in GPP formats only.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris (head) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Washington Wizards. He suffered a concussion during Tuesday's game, so it's unlikely that he'll suit up here. Kawhi Leonard (back) is also listed as questionable for this contest. The shorthanded Clippers could have to lean on Lou Williams, Reggie Jackson, and Terrence Mann. Jackson is coming off a strong performance and has the most upside out of the three.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Washington Wizards. He was a late scratch on Tuesday, so it wouldn't be shocking to see the team hold him out for the final game before the All-Star break. His absence would mean more chances for Lou Williams and Reggie Jackson. Both could be solid streaming options, but Jackson is coming off a red-hot game versus the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.
Atlanta Hawks forward Danilo Gallinari will move into the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic. The absence of Clint Capela (foot) will provide Gallinari with plenty of chances on Wednesday. He is coming off a rough performance during his last outing, but has played well during a majority of the season. He is worth taking a look at as a possible DFS option for Wednesday's slate.
New York Knicks guard Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Detroit Pistons. He has been sidelined for the last week, so it would be surprising to see Payton play right before the All-Star break. Derrick Rose seems to be always tagged as questionable, so Frank Ntilikina could be asked to play heavy minutes on Thursday. He could have streaming appeal for this one, but it will be dependent on the status of Rose.
Houston Rockets forward David Nwaba (wrist) is not expected to be back on the court anytime soon. On Wednesday, he underwent right wrist surgery and should be sidelined at least six weeks. That is a crushing blow to a Rockets team that is already missing Eric Gordon (knee) and Danuel House (knee). Fantasy managers should expect Sterling Brown and Ben McLemore to have decent short-term value while Houston is shorthanded.
San Antonio Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The veteran big man missed their last game due to illness and it sounds like he could be sidelined again here. The Spurs are still without Derrick White, Rudy Gay, and Devin Vassell due to the NBA's health and safety protocols. Jakob Poeltl and Trey Lyles would be asked to fill-in, assuming Aldridge is unable to play. Poeltl has more upside because of his above average rebounding ability.
Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela (foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic. This isn't shocking news as it sounded like Capela was going to sit out coming into this game. John Collins, Onyeka Okongwu, and Danilo Gallinari will split up the minutes at center. Collins is obviously the best fantasy choice, but Gallinari could have some sneaky DFS value on Wednesday.
