Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Tuesday 12/13/16

Before DFS NBA lineups lock tonight, check out which players are expected to play and which could be sitting on the sidelines.

Tuesday's NBA schedule may be small, but the injury report is stacked, which means there are potential paths to value plays. Make sure you have a good handle on who will be suiting up and who may be sitting on the sideline in street clothes before building your DFS lineups.

Notable Injuries

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have another name to add to their long injury report, as Marc Gasol will rest on the front half of a back-to-back. The rest is still close to what's it's been over the last week, with the exception of Vince Carter, who is listed as questionable.

He could take away minutes from both Troy Daniels and Troy Williams, so keep an eye on that one.

Orlando Magic

Both of the Orlando Magic's top two centers are questionable, so if one or both of Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo are out, it creates nice value.

Biyombo played over the weekend but did not practice on Monday, so he has the best chance of playing. Serge Ibaka and even Jeff Green get nice bumps if either of these two (or both) are inactive.

Victor Oladipo, Oklahoma City Thunder

Russell Westbrook already has league-high 41.4% usage rate. However, with Victor Oladipo out on Tuesday night, that number is almost certainly going up. Along with Westbrook getting a boost, Anthony Morrow could easily see 30-plus minutes with Oladipo out.

Rajon Rondo, Chicago Bulls

Rajon Rondo sprained his ankle in practice on Monday and it looks like he might come down to a game-time decision. If he is out, Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade become even more solid options, while Jerian Grant will likely take over the starting point guard spot.

Kent Bazemore, Atlanta Hawks

After missing a couple games, Kent Bazemore will be back for the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. He will likely slide back into the starting lineup, so Tim Hardaway Jr. and Thabo Sefolosha stand to lose the most minutes with his return.

T.J Warren, Phoenix Suns

T.J. Warren has missed 11 games, but after an optimistic questionable tag, it looks more like he will be out another game for the Phoenix Suns. P.J. Tucker saw 42 minutes in the Suns' last game, and he should start again on Tuesday.

Lesser Injuries

Zaza Pachulia, Golden State Warriors

Zaza Pachulia will miss another game, but the Golden State Warriors just started Draymond Green at center and Kevin Durant at power forward against the Minnesota Timberwolves when Pachulia didn't play over the weekend. Expect more of that.

Kyle O'Quinn, New York Knicks

Kyle O'Quinn didn't play on Sunday and there have been no updates on his status for Tuesday. Consider him questionable for now, but if he misses more time, Guillermo Hernangomez will get a bump.
