Phoenix Suns guard Eric Gordon (knee) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. The veteran guard will miss at least one game due to a right knee contusion. The Suns could be in a bad spot with Devin Booker (ankle) considered a game-time decision for this contest. The absence of both players would mean increased roles for players such as Grayson Allen, Josh Okogie, and Jordan Goodwin. Fantasy managers will have to check back for another update on Booker's status closer to game time.
Isaiah Hartenstein (Achilles) is not listed on the injury report ahead of the team's game on Thursday against the Warriors. The 25-year-old sat out the second night of a back-to-back after recently returning from his Achilles injury suffered earlier this month, but he is expected to be cleared to return to the lineup. However, it's likely that he will be placed on a minutes restriction, with anticipated playing time ranging between 25 to 28 minutes. Hartenstein holds season averages of 7.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 25.3 minutes per game.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Ben Simmons (back) will be available for Thursday's contest against Atlanta. He was rested on Tuesday when the Nets completed a back-to-back in Orlando. Simmons could get back into the starting lineup for Thursday's tilt with Cam Thomas (ankle) on the shelf. The versatile Australian has averaged 6.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 5.6 assists in 26.1 minutes in a starting role this season. This will be a great matchup for Simmons and the Nets, as Atlanta is ranked last in defensive efficiency for the season.
Golden State Warriors wing Andrew Wiggins (personal) is listed as out for the team's game Thursday against the Knicks. The 29-year-old will miss his second consecutive game due to personal reasons, with his next opportunity to return slated for Sunday against the Celtics. Moses Moody drew the start in Wiggins' absence last game, and he is expected to fill in again on Thursday. Additionally, Lester Quinones and Gary Payton could see increased minutes. Wiggins maintains season averages of 12.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 27.2 minutes per game.
New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson (neck) is officially listed as questionable for the Knicks' game Thursday against the Warriors. The 27-year-old missed Tuesday's game after sustaining some hard hits during Monday's matchup against the Pistons. Despite waking up with neck spasms and sitting out the second night of a back-to-back, Brunson appears to have a solid chance of returning to action. However, if he is unable to play, Miles McBride is expected to continue starting, with Alec Burks likely seeing increased minutes off the bench. Brunson boasts impressive season averages of 27.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 6.7 assists in 36.0 minutes per game.
Utah Jazz center Walker Kessler (foot) finds himself with a questionable tag ahead of Thursday's matchup against Orlando. The Atlanta-born giant has been ever-present for Utah since Dec. 11 but might have to come out of the lineup on Thursday due to a right foot sprain. The Jazz have a pretty crowded frontcourt, but Kessler has been getting consistent work as a backup center. He's posted 8.4 points and 7.3 rebounds with 2.7 blocks in 23.2 minutes this season. Kessler's absence could help Omer Yurtseven back into the rotation, but starting bigs Taylor Hendricks, John Collins, and Lauri Markkanen should soak in most of the available minutes.
Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against Utah. He missed Tuesday's encounter with Brooklyn due to a left knee strain and is now in the middle of a bout with an illness. Joe Ingles and Moritz Wagner figure to receive a bigger workload if Isaac remains unavailable. Wagner is by far the better fantasy option and doesn't typically need a lot of time on the court to do damage. He racked up 16 points, five rebounds, two steals, and one block in 19 minutes against the Nets.
Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas (ankle, foot) is officially listed as out ahead of the team's game Thursday against the Hawks. The 22-year-old sustained an ankle injury during Monday's game, compelling him to sit out on Tuesday. The severity of the injury remains uncertain, but Thomas will miss his second consecutive game, with his next opportunity to play being the Saturday rematch against Atlanta. In his absence, Dennis Schroder, Lonnie Walker, and Ben Simmons are expected to see increased minutes or usage. Thomas boasts averages of 20.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game in 29.8 minutes this season.
Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's meeting with Cleveland. He hurt his right hamstring in Tuesday's 105-95 loss to Detroit and might have to give it rest to get back to 100 percent. Caruso's absence would open up a spot in the starting unit, with Dalen Terry and Jevon Carter the likeliest candidates to step into the role. A boost in playing time would lift the fantasy value for both, although the two haven't previously proven to be productive players.
Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball (ankle) is officially listed as out ahead of the team's game Thursday against the Bucks. The 22-year-old will miss his 16th-straight game due to the ankle ailment, despite having returned to practice a week ago. Given the trajectory of Charlotte's season, the organization is likely prioritizing his long-term health. Tre Mann should continue to start in his place, and Ball's next opportunity to play will be on Sunday in Toronto. Ball maintains impressive season averages of 23.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 8.0 assists in 32.3 minutes per game.
Toronto Raptors power forward Chris Boucher (illness) is regarded as questionable for Wednesday's matchup against Dallas. The two-time NBA champion is trying to shake off an illness. However, even if Boucher's available to play, it's not guaranteed he will see any action. Raptors head coach Darko Rajakovic has used him very sparingly, and the addition of Kelly Olynyk has further complicated his life in Toronto.
