Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Tuesday 11/22/16
It's only a four-game slate, but there are a few notable injuries are leaving spots where value can be found tonight, especially in New York.
Joakim Noah, New York Knicks
Joakim Noah did not practice yesterday and is officially doubtful for Tuesday night, leaving some minutes to fill in the New York Knicks frontcourt. Kristaps Porzingis will end up playing some minutes at center and Kyle O'Quinn could draw another start, but the real value play to look out for is Guillermo Hernangomez. He played 29 minutes when O'Quinn got into foul trouble, and he could see good minutes tonight if Noah misses.
Terrence Jones, New Orleans Pelicans
Terrence Jones has been labeled questionable with an illness, which is never a good sign if it comes out after shootaround. Alexis Ajinca was a healthy sit last game and could be forced into some minutes tonight. However, it could just end up adding more value to Anthony Davis, so take a look at the Brow tonight.
Tim Hardaway Jr., Atlanta Hawks
Tim Hardaway Jr. exited the Atlanta Hawks' Sunday matchup in the final minutes and did not return after getting elbowed in the head. He didn't need stitches, but there hasn't been any word on whether he had to go through or pass the concussion protocol. Thabo Sefolosha, likely the biggest beneficiary if Hardaway sits, is probable, but make sure to double check Hardaway's status before locking him in.
D'Angelo Russell, Los Angeles Lakers
D'Angelo Russell has something going on with his knee, but whether it's an actual injury or simply soreness is not known. He is officially questionable after missing practice on Monday, but it seems like the Los Angeles Lakers medical staff thinks the situation isn't serious. He missed Friday's game, but Russell played 23 minutes on Sunday. With the game being late tonight, we probably won't know his status before rosters lock.
