Frank Mason    G  Kings



Frank Mason III (heel) is probable for Saturday against the Lakers. Prior to his return to the lineup on Thursday, Mason was out since his injury back on Dec. 31, so listing him as probable is not a surprise. Mason played 15 minutes on Thursday and his minutes could be going up if De'Aaron Fox (pink eye) needs another game off.

Skal Labissiere    F/C  Kings



Skal Labissiere (shoulder) is probable for Saturday night against the Lakers. His shoulder looked fine on Thursday night with 10 points in 27 minutes, and this is part of Kings protocol to list guys as probable after a lengthy absence. He should be good to go and is a wild card as an option off the waiver wire.

Kosta Koufos    C  Kings



Kosta Koufos (illness) is questionable for Saturday against the Lakers. He was reportedly very sick at the arena on Thursday night and it's possible the Kings hold him out again. Koufos being out should mean Zach Randolph would get heavy run as the starter next to Willie Cauley-Stein.

De'Aaron Fox    G  Kings



De'Aaron Fox (pink eye) is questionable against the Lakers for Saturday's game. He did not play on Thursday and has been dealing with this since at least Wednesday. Fox will likely be a game-time call for a late start tonight. If he's out, that means more run for Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and Bogdan Bogdanovic.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz



Raul Neto (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Mavs. This will be his second game out of the lineup due to an injury at shootaround. The Jazz could also be limiting Ricky Rubio in a back-to-back set, so that could mean a few more minutes for Royce O'Neale, Jae Crowder and maybe Alec Burks. O'Neale is probably the only one worth owning in 12-team leagues for now.

Darren Collison    G  Pacers



Coach Nate McMillan said that he does not expect Darren Collison (knee) to return during the Pacers upcoming four-game road trip. There was some hope that Collison could return next week, but that now seems highly unlikely. "The recovery is not going as fast as we thought it would so it’s going to take a bit of time," said coach McMillan on Saturday. "I’d say on this road trip, he won’t be back." The Pacers embark on a four-game road trip beginning Monday in Dallas and don't return home until Monday, March 5th. Cory Joseph and Joe Young will continue to divvy up minutes at PG with Collison sidelined.

Eric Moreland    C  Pistons



Coach Stan Van Gundy said that he plans to give Eric Moreland additional playing time going forward, as the Pistons play six games over the next nine days. Van Gundy said he "wants to give Drummond and Griffin a break and spread the minutes around." Moreland is averaging 1.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game this season. Even if he sees 15-plus minutes a night over the next two weeks, that's not enough to make an impact in fantasy. He should be left on waivers.

Paul Zipser    F  Bulls



Paul Zipser (left foot pain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Minnesota. Zipser injured his foot in Thursday's loss to the Sixers. He was unable to return to the contest. Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba should see an uptick in minutes with Zipser sidelined. Zipser should be left on waivers in all fantasy formats.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls



Robin Lopez will again be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game vs. Minnesota.

Kelly Olynyk    F/C  Heat



Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.
