Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (adductor) will miss his fifth game in a row due to his left adductor strain. He was officially ruled out well ahead of tipoff which doesn't provide any confidence that he'll return soon. The Lakers are likely being cautious since the team has struggled for the most part so far. As has been the case, Austin Reaves and Troy Brown Jr. will likely see added minutes and usage while James watches from the sidelines.
Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul (heel) may play on Wednesday against Boston. The veteran has missed 14 games because of heel soreness. While there's still a chance Paul won't be ready to return, the questionable designation at least shows he's moving in the right direction. Cameron Payne should remain in the starting lineup if Paul remains out, with the 28-year-old averaging 15.1 points and 7.3 assists as a starter this season, making him a lock for managers in all fantasy formats.
Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley (knee) is questionable ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Warriors. The veteran has missed his previous eight games because of a knee injury, allowing Collin Sexton to take his spot in the rotation. The former Cavalier has averaged 17.1 points in nine starts this season. While Conley would presumably return to the starting lineup if he's available, he will likely have his minutes monitored, so Sexton could remain nearly as productive.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's matchup versus Utah. Andrew Wiggins (adductor) and Draymond Green (hip) won't play either. That said, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole, who combined for 51 points in Monday's loss to Indiana, should carry the load offensively. Jonathan Kuminga and Donte DiVincenzo may also be viable one-game streaming options, although rostering either man isn't without risk.
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner (hamstring) is questionable ahead of Wednesday's meeting in Minnesota. Turner was a late addition to the injury report before Monday's win over Golden State because of hamstring soreness. As a result, Jalen Smith benefited, with the 22-year-old finishing with 15 points, nine rebounds, and three blocks. While Smith has played well enough in 2022-23 to warrant fantasy consideration whenever he's on the floor, he's should be a lock for managers if Turner remains out.
Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's meeting in Minnesota. Haliburton has missed his last two games because of a sore groin. As a result, Andrew Nembhard has enjoyed a spike in production, with the rookie scoring a game-high 31 points in Monday's win over Golden State. Nembhard has played well all season. However, if Haliburton sits again, the 2022 second-round pick should be a lock for fantasy managers.
Charlotte Hornets guard Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) remains out on Wednesday against Brooklyn. LaMelo Ball (ankle) won't play either, so Terry Rozier should continue to handle things at the one, with Theo Maledon expected to receive additional minutes from the bench. While Rozier will likely see an increase in usage and assists as the primary ball handler, Meledon probably won't offer much to fantasy managers.
Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball (ankle) is out again for Wednesday's matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Ball has only played three games this season, as he continues to battle a sprained left ankle. With Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) sitting as well, Terry Rozier should continue to run the point, with Theo Maledon getting some extra minutes from the bench. However, unless Maledon is in the starting lineup, he won't offer much to fantasy managers.
Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons (calf) remains out for Wednesday's game against Charlotte. The 26-year-old has been sidelined by a strained left calf. However, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel, as Simmons is hoping he can return on Friday versus the Atlanta Hawks. That said, until he finds his way back to the floor, Joe Harris, who had 13 points, six rebounds, and two steals while shooting 3-for-5 from deep in Sunday's meeting with Boston, may remain in the starting lineup.
Orlando Magic guard Jalen Suggs (ankle) won't suit up for Wednesday's meeting with the Clippers, marking his seventh consecutive absence. The 21-year-old has started 13 games this season, averaging 12.6 points, 5.5 assists, and 1.5 steals. However, while he remains out, Markelle Fultz and Cole Anthony should continue to benefit statistically.
Los Angeles Clippers guard John Wall (knee) won't suit up in Orlando on Wednesday, the second contest of the team's four-game road trip. With L.A. playing a back-to-back, Wall will get some rest before presumably returning for Thursday's meeting in Miami. The 32-year-old continues to look better and better throughout the season, recently accumulating a double-double in Sunday's win over Charlotte. With Luke Kennard (calf), Marcus Morris Sr. (Illness), and Norman Powell (groin) also sitting, Reggie Jackson, Nicolas Batum, and Terance Mann have an excellence chance of surpassing their season averages.
