Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo (hip) will miss Saturday's clash against the Pacers. He's been carrying a hip issue for quite a while and was forced to make an early exit against Indiana on Thursday because of the ailment. It's going to be the third game he misses in six contests. Thomas Bryant recently made two starts when Adebayo was unavailable, but he logged just six minutes in Thursday's 142-132 win. Kevin Love didn't see a boost in playing time either, so we might see a lot of small lineups again by Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra on Saturday.
Orlando Magic forward Paolo Banchero (illness) is officially listed as questionable for the Magic's game Thursday against the Jazz. The 21-year-old missed the team's game on Tuesday due to illness and is at risk of sitting out his third consecutive game on Thursday. Should Banchero be sidelined once more, Caleb Houston would likely step into the starting lineup again. Banchero boasts averages of 22.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.2 assists in 34.8 minutes per game this season.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton (ankle) is officially listed as out for the Bucks' game on Thursday against the Hornets. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since February 6th due to his ankle injury, but signs indicate he is nearing a return. In Middleton's absence, Jae Crowder is expected to maintain his starting role, while Pat Connaughton is likely to see an increased role off the bench. Middleton, averaging 14.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in 26.3 minutes per game this season, is a significant absence for the Bucks.
Milwaukee Bucks star big man Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is officially listed as probable for the Bucks' upcoming Thursday matchup against the Hornets. The 29-year-old saw limited action, playing just 24 minutes in Tuesday's blowout, where he still managed to contribute significantly with 24 points, eight rebounds, and an assist. Barring any unforeseen setbacks during shootaround, the former MVP is expected to be fully available for the rematch against Charlotte. Antetokounmpo boasts impressive season averages of 30.7 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game in 34.9 minutes.
Phoenix Suns guard Eric Gordon (groin) is officially listed as questionable for the Suns' game Thursday against the Rockets. The 35-year-old missed the team's game on Sunday with a hamstring injury, and he sat out of the contact portion of Phoenix's practice on Tuesday. With Bradley Beal (hamstring) also questionable after missing each of the last four games, Gordon could get the start if he suits up. If Gordon misses his second straight game, Royce O'Neale would be next in line to start. Gordon is averaging 12.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 29.8 minutes per game this season.
Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for the Suns' game on Thursday against the Rockets. The 30-year-old has missed each of the last four games with a hamstring injury, and he's in danger of missing another. If Beal has to sit out again, Royce O'Neale or Eric Gordon will likely start in his place, while both should see an increase in minutes. Beal is averaging 18.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in 32.6 minutes per game this season.
The Los Angeles Clippers have downgraded center Ivica Zubac (illness) to questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. Absent from the Clippers' original injury report, Zubac is dealing with an illness that could cost him Wednesday's game. If the 26-year-old rim protector cannot suit up in the Battle of L.A., Zubac's minutes at center would be divvied up between Mason Plumlee and Daniel Theis, and the veteran big men would both be in play as low-end fantasy streamers against a Lakers team that ranks 22nd in opponent rebounding percentage (49.1%).
New Orleans Pelicans forward Trey Murphy III (calf) is now questionable for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. A left calf contusion has made Murphy a late addition to the injury report, clouding his availability for the second end of New Orleans' back-to-back. Considering the sharpshooting wing and a host of Pelicans stars are questionable Wednesday, Jonas Valanciunas and Herbert Jones could be focal points. Naji Marshall and Jordan Hawkins are names to watch in fantasy basketball based on who is active for the Pels in an uptempo environment against the NBA's top scoring offense and a matchup that features the second-highest implied point total (237.5) on Wednesday's six-game slate.
Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox (knee), who is still questionable for Wednesday's tilt against the Denver Nuggets, was a full participant in the morning shootaround. Fox is nursing a left knee contusion, but his presence at Wednesday's session bodes well for his game status. Consider the speedy point guard to be on the right side of the questionable tag. Fox has made at least 12 field goals in each of his last five showings, piling up 31.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 7.2 dimes, and 2.6 steals per game covering this interval ahead of a tough matchup against a Nuggets group that's allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing point guards, according to DraftKings scoring.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have listed center Rudy Gobert (ankle) as questionable for Wednesday's meeting with the Memphis Grizzlies. Gobert fought through a sprained left ankle in Tuesday's victory over the San Antonio Spurs, but his status is uncertain for the second half of Minnesota's back-to-back. It's worth noting the 31-year-old interior presence logged 39 minutes Tuesday, so if the T-Wolves elect to give Gobert the night off, expect Naz Reid to start at power forward in the frontcourt alongside the returning Karl-Anthony Towns against a depleted Memphis squad that ranks 24th in fantasy points allowed to the position, per DraftKings scoring.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest versus the Memphis Grizzlies. After tweaking his left ankle in Tuesday's win over the San Antonio Spurs, Edwards is still experiencing soreness but isn't dealing with a serious injury. Minnesota could opt to play things safely with Ant-Man and keep him out on the second part of their back-to-back, and if they go this route, Nickeil Alexander-Walker could jump into the T-Wolves first unit and is averaging a modest 9.3 points, 3.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 treys, and 1.1 steals in 16 games as a starter this season.
