Sean Kilpatrick    G/F  Nets

 

 

Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Thursday. This will be his fifth game out of the lineup. The Nets have taken a look at K.J. McDaniels lately, giving him 21 minutes on Tuesday with 11 points. Archie Goodwin has also got some run, but these two are tough to own in most leagues. Caris LeVert should also benefit.

Jeremy Lin    G  Nets

 

 

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Thursday. His Sunday ankle sprain looks like it's only going to cost him one game. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be losing minutes. Lin is probably worth owning, but the Nets may take it easy on him to get a look at their younger guards.

Serge Ibaka    F/C  Raptors

 

 

Serge Ibaka has been suspended for one game. That means he's not going to play against the Heat on Thursday. Ibaka threw multiple punches at Robin Lopez, so he was clearly going to get at least one game. With him out, Jonas Valanciunas may actually play in the fourth quarter while Pat Patterson figures to get more run.

Robin Lopez    C  Bulls

 

 

Robin Lopez and Serge Ibaka have been suspended for one game for throwing punches at each other. This one was coming all along today and Lopez only getting one game is good news. He won't be playing tonight against the Pistons and the Bulls may have to get creative with their center minutes. Cristiano Felicio is questionable to play, so he would be busy if he's able to give it a go. We might see some Bobby Portis at the five.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Cristiano Felicio is able to suit up, he'd likely eat up 25-30 minutes of court time in order to deal with Andre Drummond, making him a potential GPP punt play at minimum price. In the event that he sits, both Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic could see upticks in playing time, with Joffrey Lauvergne also looming as an option at the 5. Mirotic looks like the best upside play in the group after seeing at least 26 minutes in four of the last five games.
