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.
The New York Knicks are now ruling out forward RJ Barrett (illness) as they face the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. Barrett was fully expected to play until the Knicks downgraded him to doubtful with an illness just minutes before play started. With Barrett suddenly out, Immanuel Quickley will enter the starting lineup and should see his fair share of minutes. Barrett should be considered questionable moving forward.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jordan McLaughlin (calf) is playing Sunday against the Denver Nuggets. McLaughlin has not seen game action since December 9th after injuring his calf, but will return to the court Sunday with a minutes restriction. McLaughlin should resume his normal role as backup point guard once he is up to speed. Austin Rivers and Bryn Forbes should see a dip in minutes moving forward.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram (toe) will sit out Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Ingram had missed weeks due to a toe injury so there is some concern here, but the Pelicans staff reiterated Ingram did not reinjure the toe and is only experiencing some soreness. Naji Marshall and Jose Alvarado should see increased minutes on Sunday while CJ McCollum should have the green light on offense.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas (quad) will sit Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Valanciunas left Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers after landing awkwardly on a dunk attempt. Valanciunas was originally ruled out for a knee injury, but after a clean MRI came back, he is reportedly only dealing with soreness in his quadriceps. This is very good news for New Orleans and fantasy managers everywhere as Valanciunas appears to have avoided a major injury. Larry Nance Jr. and Jaxson Hayes should see increased value while Valanciunas sits.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (foot) is available and starting Sunday against the New York Knicks. Embiid has been listed as questionable given his recurring foot soreness, but will play on Sunday with no restrictions. Embiid is averaging 33.5 points and 10.1 rebounds this season and should have no problem against the Knicks.
Memphis Grizzlies forward/center Jaren Jackson Jr. (illness) will play and start Sunday's game against the Toronto Raptors. Jackson missed last game due to a non-COVID illness but had three days to rest up and should see no restrictions on Sunday. Santi Aldama was masterful without Jackson, scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds on Thursday. However, Aldama will likely head back to the bench and lose most of his short-term fantasy value.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant (wrist) will not play Sunday against the Toronto Raptors. Morant was questionable to play despite going through the team's practice on Saturday, but will sit due to soreness in his wrist. Tyus Jones is expected to start without Morant in the lineup and has been a high-end stream when starting. Morant is not expected to miss an extended period of time but should be considered questionable for their next game on Tuesday.
The Mavericks are sending Dorian Finney-Smith and Spencer Dinwiddie to the Nets in exchange for Kyrie Irving and Markieff Morris. Finney-Smith has spent his entire career in Dallas, averaging 8.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists. Although the 29-year-old isn't the most consistent offensive option, he will certainly give Brooklyn a much-needed boost on the defensive end.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (leg) is expected to miss "multiple weeks," according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. Curry has already missed nearly a month this season because of a shoulder injury. However, he'll now be out for the foreseeable future, opening the door for Jordan Poole to slide over to the point guard spot. At the same time, Donte DiVincenzo, who's averaged 10.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and shot 40.8% from deep in 12 starts this season, is the favorite to move into the starting lineup. Ty Jerome could also draw some interest from those in deeper fantasy formats, although DiVincenzo is the better fantasy option.
The Mavericks are sending Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, and multiple draft picks to the Nets in exchange for Kyrie Irving and Markieff Morris. Dinwiddie has averaged 17.7 points, 5.3 assists and shot 40.5% from deep in 53 games this season. However, he'll now return to Brooklyn, a city where he played for five seasons. Dinwiddie was at his best while with the Nets and could see a boost in production the second time around now that he's no longer sharing the floor with Luka Doncic.
