  • WAS Small Forward #12
    Isaiah Livers (right hip joint capsule inflammation) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Mavericks.
    Livers, who has not made his Wizards debut, remains without a timeline for his return. His absence has not impacted fantasy basketball.
  • ATL Point Guard #11
    Trae Young (left fifth finger injury) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Magic.
    The good news is that Young is a right-handed shooter, but there’s still a need to have a functional off-hand. Should he not be able to play on Sunday, Dejounte Murray would be the lone point guard in the starting lineup, with Bogdan Bogdanovic sliding into the starting lineup. Both are already rostered in a high percentage of fantasy leagues, and there isn’t a worthwhile add behind Murray or Bogdanovic.
  • WAS Small Forward #8
    Deni Avdija (left heel contusion) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cavaliers.
    Avdija was held out of Friday’s loss to the Thunder, with Landry Shamet replacing him in the starting lineup. Shamet offered little production in that role and would not be worth streaming if Avdija remains sidelined.
  • CLE Shooting Guard #45
    Donovan Mitchell (illness) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Wizards.
    Mitchell appears on track to return after missing Cleveland’s first two games out of the All-Star break. If he’s cleared, that would push Isaac Okoro to the bench, where he doesn’t offer much fantasy value. Caris LeVert, who failed to benefit from Mitchell’s absence, would also have a lower fantasy ceiling.
  • IND Small Forward #23
    Aaron Nesmith (right ankle sprain) will remain sidelined for Sunday’s game against the Mavericks.
    Nesmith has been ruled out for a second consecutive game, which should keep Bennedict Mathurin in the starting lineup. While his game isn’t exactly “fantasy-friendly,” Mathurin is worth streaming as long as he’s a starter. He played 35 minutes in Thursday’s win over Detroit, finishing with 15 points, six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer.
  • IND Power Forward #25
    Jalen Smith (low back spasms) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Mavericks.
    While it was announced that Smith was available for Thursday’s game against the Pistons, he did not see any action. He hasn’t appeared in a game since February 8, but the absence has not significantly impacted fantasy basketball. If Smith remains sidelined, Isaiah Jackson will handle the backup center responsibilities.
  • MIL Power Forward #34
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee patellar tendinits) is probable for Sunday’s matchup with the 76ers.
    Antetokounmpo was also probable ahead of Friday’s win over the Timberwolves, a game he ultimately played 41 minutes in. Look for him to remain in his usual role, and this could be a big matchup for Giannis due to the 76ers being without Joel Embiid.
  • DAL Center #2
    Dereck Lively II (fractured nose) and Maxi Kleber (fractured nose) are probable for Sunday’s game against the Pacers.
    Lively and Kleber played in Thursday’s win over the Suns, with the former playing 16 minutes as the starting center. With PJ Washington (who started alongside Lively) and Daniel Gafford also in the rotation, this is a situation fantasy managers need to monitor on Sunday. Lively, Washington, and Gafford should be rostered in standard leagues, but the minutes distribution could lower the fantasy ceiling of all three.
  • DAL Point Guard #77
    Luka Doncic (broken nose) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Pacers.
    Doncic has played with the fractured nose for a few games and should continue to do so on Sunday. Over the past month, he’s ranked first in 8- and 9-cat per-game value, according to Basketball Monster. Managers who have Doncic rostered simply need to make sure they have him slotted into their lineups before tipoff.
  • DAL Shooting Guard #0
    Dante Exum (left knee bursitis) was a full participant in Saturday’s practice but remains sidelined for Sunday’s game against the Pacers.
    Exum was part of the second team during Saturday’s session, likely indicating that he’ll come off the bench once cleared to play. According to Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, the plan is to have him practice again on Monday, hoping that Exum will be available for Tuesday’s game against Cleveland. Given the Mavericks’ rotation changes since the trade deadline, Exum’s return is unlikely to impact fantasy basketball.
  • MIN Center #27
    Rudy Gobert (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Saturday’s game against Brooklyn.
    Gobert sprained his ankle when he landed on Brook Lopez’s foot during Friday’s loss to the Bucks. He injured the same ankle in early February, but the veteran center did not miss a game. Should Gobert not be cleared for Saturday’s game, Naz Reid and Kyle Anderson would have the most to gain regarding fantasy value. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, Reid would be a solid option, while Anderson would need to be a starter to achieve full streaming value.
