Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Monday 1/30/17
Finding NBA DFS value can be tough on nights like Monday's slate. However, if some of the bigger names listed below end up sitting out, there could be plenty of options in the $3,000 range that could end up being fine targets.
Here are the situations worth monitoring before rosters lock.
Other than that, Andrew Bogut is questionable, while Jose Juan Barea and Deron Williams are still out. If Bogut does not play, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith get a bump, while Seth Curry could have another big game after his 24-point performance on Sunday.
Al Horford, Boston Celtics
Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Love hurt his back and will not play on Monday for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Richard Jefferson should slide into the starting lineup, while Channing Frye also has some appeal. However, the biggest boosts probably go to LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
Tyler Johnson, Miami Heat
Tyler Johnson is going to warm up tonight with the intention of playing. After missing five games with a shoulder strain, he went through shootaround this morning. If he does play, it takes a big chunk out of Wayne Ellington's minutes and probably takes some shots away from the red-hot Dion Waiters.
Evan Fournier, Orlando Magic
Evan Fournier has been out for eight straight games, but after practicing on Saturday, he still did not suit up for Sunday, which was the first game of a back-to-back for the Orlando Magic. Check his shootaround status for another update later on whether he'll finally make his return to the lineup on Monday.
JaMychal Green, Memphis Grizzlies
After missing a game last week, JaMychal Green played in two in a row before being questionable tonight with a knee injury. With Brandan Wright planning to play for the first time this season on Monday, it complicates the Memphis Grizzlies' frontcourt rotation even more. Either way, if Green is out, Zach Randolph should get a slight bump.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has a sore ankle and is questionable on Monday for the Brooklyn Nets. With Joe Harris already out, there could be a ton of available minutes on the wing if Hollis-Jefferson is forced to sit. Caris LeVert, Randy Foye, Bojan Bogdanovic and Sean Kilpatrick are all in play if this happens, but the problem is choosing the right one to put on your DFS roster.
