Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (groin) will play against the Cavs on Wednesday. He needed almost two weeks to recover from a groin contusion. Chandler has dealt with a lot of groin injuries in his career, so the Nuggets could ease him back into his role. It'll be interesting to see where he fits in with coach Mike Malone liking the Mason Plumlee starting lineup. Chandler is worth owning, but his upside is capped. Kenneth Faried may also lose minutes.

Reggie Jackson    G  Pistons

 

 

Reggie Jackson will come off the Pistons' bench on Wednesday, with Ish Smith moving into the starting lineup. Stan Van Gundy teased a lineup change after Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn, and this isn't shocking after Jackson was benched for the entire fourth quarter of that game. Smith has been playing well lately and should see an uptick in his minutes as a starter, whereas this is another hit to Jackson's already shaky value.

Ish Smith    G  Pistons

 

 

Ish Smith will enter the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, sending Reggie Jackson to the bench. Smith has been heating up over the past month, while Jackson has been trending in the wrong direction, so this could be a lineup change that holds. Through 21 games as a starter this season, Smith owns averages of 10.8 points, 6.4 assists, 1.0 steal and just 1.5 turnovers per game on 43.1 percent shooting, so he's worth a look if those numbers fit your needs. Jackson, on the other hand, is quickly approaching cut candidate territory.

Kevon Looney    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevon Looney has been sent down to the D-League. Looney is a non-factor in the Dubs rotation while they're at full strength, so no fantasy impact here.

Mike Dunleavy    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) will play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday. The veteran's return gives Atlanta some extra depth with Kent Bazemore (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee) still out of commission. He's not going to play enough minutes to help most fantasy owners, though.

Jahlil Okafor    C  76ers

 

 

Jahlil Okafor (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Thunder. Okafor will be returning from a one-game absence, and his return to action will result in fewer minutes for Richaun Holmes. Okafor is good for some points and boards, but he typically doesn't offer much on the defensive end and turnovers have been an issue as of late. He's more of a deep league guy, while Holmes should be owned in all leagues.
