Justin Holiday    G/F  Bulls



Coach Fred Hoiberg said that both Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday would not dress for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves. This is the second straight game that Chicago has benched both Lopez and Holiday, as the Bulls are fully committed to tank mode. It now appears safe to drop Holiday in fantasy leagues. David Nwaba started for Chicago on Thursday and finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He is worth consideration as a DFS flier on Saturday night.

Eric Gordon    G  Rockets



Eric Gordon (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets. Gordon missed Friday's game vs. Minnesota due to the same illness.
