Suns' Tyson Chandler (shoulder, neck) will not play on Saturday
Phoenix Suns center Tyson Chandler (shoulder, neck) will not play on Saturday against the Golden State Warriors.
The team admitted Chandler's injuries are bothering him, so we should expect to see some small-ball lineups and a dash of Alex Len.
Our models project Len for 20.9 FanDuel points at a salary of $3,900 on Saturday.
Devin Booker (hand) game-time call on Saturday for Suns
Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker (hand) is a game-time decision against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.
Booker will have to play with a splint, so that'll affect him. If he can't go, coach Jay Triano said he would likely start Troy Daniels, though he likes Josh Jackson off the bench.
Booker has averaged 37.2 FanDuel points this season, and has a salary of $7,200 on Saturday. We project him for 36.1 FanDuel points in this matchup, if he can play.
Kings' Skal Labissiere to take place of Zach Randolph on Saturday
Sacramento Kings forward/center Skal Labissiere is starting in place of Zach Randolph against the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
He played well for three quarters last night and he was rolling before his hip injury last weekend.
Our models project Labissiere for 18.2 FanDuel points at a salary of $5,600 on Saturday.
Ricky Rubio (knee) will start for Jazz on Saturday
Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio (knee) is starting against the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.
Rubio popped up on the injury report on Thursday, but he'll be a full go. Rubio continues to play well and has been a key rotation player during this insane 20-2 run for the Jazz.
Our models project Rubio for 29.3 FanDuel points at a salary of $8,000 on Saturday.
Andre Iguodala (knee) available for Warriors, projected to start on Saturday
Golden State Warriors guard/forward Andre Iguodala (knee) is available against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday.
That's good news after getting banged up on Friday. Despite the injury, Iguodala played 31 minutes on Friday and he's likely looking at a similar workload tonight. The Warriors are missing so many players, so Iggy is a solid start in most fantasy formats.
Iguodala's projected for 19.7 FanDuel points in our models, a steal at the minute salary of $4,200.
Doug McDermott is starting for Mavericks on Saturday
Dallas Mavericks small forward Doug McDermott will start against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.
He'll replace Harrison Barnes in the lineup. With the Mavs shorthanded tonight, McBuckets could get over 20 minutes in this contest. Yogi Ferrell will still get a ton of minutes off the bench, while Maxi Kleber likely backs up McBuckets.
Our models project McDermott for 14.0 FanDuel points at a salary of $3,600 on Saturday.
Vince Carter (personal) unavailable on Saturday for Kings
Sacramento Kings guard/forward Vince Carter (personal) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz.
He's away from the team due to a death in his family, so he could miss Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons as well. Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson will pick up some extra minutes.
Carter turned in 6.1 FanDuel points in his last game, with just under 18 minutes played. He's averaged 13.5 FanDuel points per game this year.
Mavericks give Kyle Collinsworth first NBA start on Saturday
Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Kyle Collinsworth will be in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets.
This will be Collinsworth's first career start, as he takes Dorian Finney-Smith's spot in the starting five, and he could see some quality minutes tonight with Dallas extremely banged up.
Our models project Collinsworth for 7.5 FanDuel points at a salary of $3,700 on Saturday.
Torrey Craig available for Nuggets Saturday
Torrey Craig is available for Saturday against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Craig will be very tough to trust even in this matchup and without Gary Harris (knee) in the lineup.
Our models project Craig for 10.1 FanDuel points at a salary of $3,500 on Saturday.
Nuggets start Will Barton on Saturday against Grizzlies
Denver Nuggets guard/forward Will Barton will move into the starting lineup against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
Coach Mike Malone is just putting his best five players out there. Gary Harris (knee) will be out for a bit, so Barton should eat up a ton of minutes again -- he played 24 and 25 on Sunday and Tuesday. He's a very good streaming option for the next week or so.
At a $6,200 salary, our models project Barton for a strong 29.0 FanDuel points on Saturday.
Knicks return Lance Thomas (personal) to starting lineup Saturday
New York Knicks guard/forward Lance Thomas (personal) will return to the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Whether he starts or comes off the bench, Thomas remains irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Thomas has a $3,600 salary tonight, but is averaging just 9.1 FanDuel points this year.
Cody Zeller (knee) listed out for Hornets on Saturday
Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (knee) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the New York Knicks.
Zeller was listed as doubtful, so this isn't a surprise. Frank Kaminsky will continue to pick up the majority of his minutes for the time being.
In his last outing, Zeller earned 18.3 FanDuel points at a $3,600 salary. He's earned 17.0 FanDuel points per game this year.
DeAndre Liggins will start for Pelicans on Saturday
New Orleans Pelicans guard/forward DeAndre Liggins will start in place of Rajon Rondo (rest) against the Houston Rockets on Saturday.
Liggins has averaged just 18 minutes per game in his two starts, earning no points. Ian Clark is much more compelling as a fantasy start.
Despite Liggins' enticing $3,500 salary, we project him for just 7.0 FanDuel points in his third start of the season.
Grizzlies' Andrew Harrison (wrist) will not play on Saturday
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Andrew Harrison (wrist) is unavailable for Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets.
Harrison was always unlikely to play, since he had a big brace on his wrist just three days ago.
In Harrison's last game, he posted 43.5 FanDuel points at a salary of $6,000. He's averaging 18.6 FanDuel points per game this year.
Mario Chalmers (hamstring) available Saturday night for Grizzlies
Memphis Grizzlies guard Mario Chalmers (hamstring) is available to play on Saturday against the Denver Nuggets.
Kobi Simmons will likely move out of the rotation once more, but Chalmers shouldn't see many extra minutes due to the presence of Tyreke Evans.
Our models project Chalmers for 18.2 FanDuel Points tonight at a salary of $3,600.
Ante Zizic starting Saturday for Cavs
Per Fred McLeod of Cavs.com, Cleveland Cavaliers center Ante Zizic is getting the start Saturday against the Chicago Bulls.
Zizic was supposed to start Thursday but he didn't. He was held to six minutes with Jeff Green playing big minutes and the Cavs going small. But, with so many guys out -- most notably Larry Nance and Tristan Thompson -- he should be in for extended minutes tonight.
Zizic costs $3,600 and played 14.5 minutes in his last start.
Cavs' Kyle Korver (personal) out Saturday against Bulls, Jose Calderon starting
Cavs.com's Fred McLeod reports guard Kyle Korver will not play Saturday due to personal reasons.
Jose Calderon will take Korver's spot in the lineup beside George Hill. As for Korver, it remains to be seen if this will be more than a one-game thing. Either way, get him out of your lineup.
Korver has averaged 26.9 minutes and 23.1 FanDuel points over the last five games for Cleveland.
Cavaliers' Jose Calderon starting against the Bulls Saturday night
Per Fred McLeod of Cavs.com, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Jose Calderon is starting on Saturday versus the Chicago Bulls.
Kyle Korver's out for personal reasons, so Calderon's starting at point guard with George Hill at the two. The Cavs' lineup continues to change from game-to-game, but we should see more of J.R. Smith and Jordan Clarkson, too.
Our models had Calderon projected for 4.4 minutes and 2.6 FanDuel points before the news. He's at $3,500 tonight.
Cristiano Felicio starting Saturday for Bulls
Chicago Bulls center Cristiano Felicio will start Saturday, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Robin Lopez will move to the bench as the Bulls switch up their rotations immensely tonight. Felicio might be limited in terms of minutes with Bobby Portis also getting minutes for Chicago.
Over a projected 13 minutes, we have Felicio down for 9.9 FanDuel points at $3,500 in a matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Bulls' Paul Zipser starting against Cavs
Chicago Bulls forward Paul Zipser is starting at power forward on Saturday, according to the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson.
Zipser is taking the place of Noah Vonleh, with the Bulls rolling out four new starters at once. Expect to see both Vonleh and Bobby Portis get minutes off the pine.
Zipser is averaging 9.0 FanDuel points and 14.8 minutes per game this season.
David Nwaba coming off bench Saturday for Bulls
Chicago Bulls guard/forward David Nwaba will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
According to the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, Denzel Valentine's starting at small forward in the Bulls' makeshift lineup. Nwaba should still see 20-25 minutes off the bench.
We project Nwaba for 22.8 minutes and 17.7 FanDuel points at a cost of $4,300.
Bulls' Justin Holiday drawing start Saturday against Cavs
Chicago Bulls guard/forward Justin Holiday will start on Saturday, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Zach LaVine (knee) has been ruled out, forcing Holiday into the rotation on the wing. He hasn't been playing big minutes even when starting, so we could see a lot more of Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba on Saturday.
At $3,600, our models project Holiday for 25.3 FanDuel points over 33.3 minutes against the Cavs.
Denzel Valentine replaces David Nwaba in Bulls' starting lineup on Saturday
According to the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, Chicago Bulls guard/forward Denzel Valentine will start on Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Valentine's taking David Nwaba's place at small forward. He could see more minutes as well as a higher usage in this role -- especially without Zach LaVine (knee) and Kris Dunn (toe).
At $5,300, Valentine's projected for 27.3 minutes and 22.8 FanDuel points for the Bulls' home matchup tonight.
Chicago's Cam Payne starting in place of injured Kris Dunn (toe) Saturday night
Chicago Bulls point guard Cameron Payne will start on Saturday, reports K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Kris Dunn (toe) was ruled out yesterday, so this was expected. Jerian Grant, who has been out of the rotation, will back up Payne, with each player's minutes unknown. Denzel Valentine could also pick up some ball-handling duties in the starting lineup.
In his first start of the year, Payne will come at a cost of $4,400. He's averaging 19.5 FanDuel points in 11 games this season.
Zach LaVine (knee) out, Justin Holiday to start Saturday for Bulls
The Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine will not play Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
LaVine is battling some tendinitis in his knee, so the team's going to be cautious without anything to gain. Justin Holiday will start, but his workload remains to be seen. Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba should both see more minutes on the wing.
Averaging 26.6 FanDuel points, LaVine was projected for 27.2 FD points in tonight's matchup.
