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