Greg Monroe    F/C  Suns

 

 

Greg Monroe is starting for Tyson Chandler on Wednesday against the Raptors. This is pretty much the pattern these days, so Monroe should get minutes in the 20s with Alex Len behind him.

Lauri Markkanen    F  Bulls

 

 

Lauri Markkanen (back) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Markkanen is good to go and without a minutes limit, so go ahead and get him active. With him back in action, Nikola Mirotic figures to head back to the second unit where he'll split the reserve minutes with Bobby Portis.

Jamil Wilson    F  Clippers

 

 

Jamil Wilson is starting again on Wednesday against the Magic. He got the start on Monday against the Raptors and he could get more starts with Danilo Gallinari (glute) out again. Wilson is not a fantasy option in almost any league after playing just nine minutes on Monday.

Zach Collins    F/C  Trail Blazers

 

 

Zach Collins will start against the Heat on Wednesday. Meyers Leonard (illness) is not expected to play and Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) is out, so Collins gets his first NBA start. He was playing minutes at both big spots on Saturday and Monday, so expect him to be more of a straight five in this game. He should be looking at minutes in the 23-30 range and is on the board as a DFS punt.

Dante Cunningham    SF  Pelicans

 

 

Cunningham (knee) is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Bucks. Cunningham was a late scratch from Monday's tilt with the Rockets, but appears to be ready to rejoin the lineup Wednesday. However, with Anthony Davis (groin) expected back as well, Cunningham will have to settle for a reserve role, which will limit his overall impact for fantasy purposes.

Anthony Davis    F/C  Pelicans

 

 

Anthony Davis (left adductor) is "expected to play" vs. the Bucks on Wednesday. Davis said after shootaround that he "should be able to go," and that was confirmed by the Pelicans' official twitter feed. We'll update his status once lineups are announced, but it should be safe to activate him in all season-long leagues.

Dante Cunningham    F  Pelicans

 

 

Dante Cunningham (knee) is expected to play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee. Anthony Davis (adductor) is also expected back in action tonight, so Cunningham probably won't be earning meaningful minutes tonight. Leave him on the wire.

Meyers Leonard    PF  Trail Blazers

 

 

Leonard (illness) will only play in an "emergency", Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports. Leonard, who has been nursing an illness, said he is "down too much weight and dehydrated to start or play big minutes." As a result, rookie Zach Collins will draw the start at center.

Zach Collins    PF  Trail Blazers

 

 

Collins will start Wednesday's game against Miami, Blazers reporter Casey Haldahl reports. With Jusuf Nurkic still out of action, the Blazers will pivot away from Meyers Leonard, who's battling an illness, and give Collins his first NBA start. The rookie out of Gonzaga played 25 minutes off the bench Tuesday against the Warriors, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.

Tyler Johnson    SG  Heat

 

 

Johnson (migraine) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Johnson was a late addition to the injury report with a migraine and will now sit out entirely. With Johnson sidelined, look for the likes of Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington to pick up some added run in the backcourt. Johnson's next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Hornets.
