Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo turned in one of his best games of the season with Jimmy Butler (back) sidelined. During the three-point win over the Boston Celtics, the 25-year-old Kentucky product posted 30 points, 15 rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block on 12-for-22 shooting and the eventual game-winning jumper at the end of the fourth quarter. His scoring numbers have taken a little jump since last season as he's been more involved in the offense and is currently averaging a double-double for the season which would be the third time in his six-year career.
Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons (knee) is questionable ahead of Saturday's meeting with the New York Knicks. Simmons exited Thursday's loss to the Pistons because of left knee soreness and didn't return. Considering he's already dealt with the issue this season, it's more likely that he won't be out there for this one. Nonetheless, with T.J. Warren (shin) doubtful, head coach Jacque Vaughn may move things around in the rotation, meaning Seth Curry, Joe Harris, and Yuta Watanabe could see an uptick in fantasy production.
Denver Nuggets guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (wrist) is expected to play on Saturday versus the 76ers. KCP missed Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee, allowing Christian Braun to enter the starting lineup and finish with eight points in 26 minutes. With the Nuggets possibly playing without Jamal Murray (hip), Bruce Brown (knee), and Michael Porter Jr. (personal), Caldwell-Pope may benefit on the offensive end.
Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby (arm) was injured during Friday's meeting with the Warriors. The 25-year-old took a hard foul from JaMychal Green in the second quarter and landed on his left arm. It's unknown if he's dealing with a shoulder or wrist injury, although he did head toward the locker room after his free throw attempts. With that said, Anunoby likely won't be back for the remainder of the contest, meaning Juancho Hernangomez and Thaddeus Young could be on the floor more than usual.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (foot) is questionable for Saturday's meeting with the visiting Nuggets. The 28-year-old continues to battle left foot soreness, an injury that has already cost him some games this season. Nikola Jokic (hamstring) is also questionable, so the highly-anticipated matchup between the best centers in the league may have to wait. Nevertheless, if Embiid is ruled out, Montrezl Harrell, who's averaged 13.7 points and 7.0 rebounds in seven starts this year, would likely enter the starting lineup.
Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (personal) is questionable for Saturday's game in Philadelphia. Bruce Brown (knee) and Jamal Murray (hip) are also questionable, so the Nuggets may lean on Nikola Jokic (hamstring) more than usual, assuming he can play after sitting out Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee. Of course, Aaron Gordon would likely also see an uptick in production. At the same time, guys like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (wrist) and Bones Hyland should stand to benefit if Porter, Murray, and Brown are ruled out.
Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (hip) is questionable ahead of Saturday's meeting with the 76ers. The 25-year-old has dealt with this issue for a while now, recently keeping him out of Wednesday's game in Milwaukee. If he can't suit up, Bones Hyland, who scored 15 points versus the Bucks, would presumably slide into the starting lineup, making him a must-start in all formats. At the same time, Ish Smith may draw some attention from needy fantasy managers in deep leagues.
Denver Nuggets guard Bruce Brown (knee) is questionable ahead of Saturday's matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. Denver could be shorthanded for this one, as Michael Porter Jr. (personal) and Jamal Murray (hip) carry the same designation. Fortunately, Nikola Jokic (hamstring) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (wrist) are probable, so they would join Aaron Gordon as the primary offensive contributors. Bones Hyland and Ish Smith, who combined for 25 points on Wednesday in Milwaukee, may also benefit from a statistical standpoint.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (hamstring) is expected to play on Saturday in Philadelphia. The multi-time MVP has been in and out of the lineup of late because of hamstring tightness. However, he should be good to go after sitting out the team's recent game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. Jokic is having another fantastic year, averaging 25.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, and a career-high 9.9 assists, so he remains a must-start, despite a tough matchup with Joel Embiid on tap.
Memphis Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 24-year-old will sit this game out due to right knee soreness. John Konchar (concussion) will join him on the sideline, which leaves the Grizzlies shorthanded. Ziaire Williams could move into the starting five with Bane and Konchar sidelined. He could be worth a look as deep league streaming option for Friday's slate.
Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton (knee, elbow) is set to miss at least one more game after being evaluated on Thursday. The young guard has missed the last two weeks due to sprains in his elbow and knee. He was re-evaluated recently, but the team hasn't cleared him to play yet. The Pacers will continue to use a committee approach to help fill the void. T.J. McConnell has been the best out of the bunch and should be rostered in most fantasy formats right now. Andrew Nembhard is worth a look as well, but is more of a deep league option.
