Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report, Presented By Rhelief: Friday 3/10/17
With eight NBA games on tap for Friday night, there are a bunch of injury situations you need to follow while filling out any DFS lineups. Here are the ones you need to head with tip-off approaching.
All eyes are on the Denver Nuggets tonight, as Nikola Jokic is once again questionable with an illness. Head coach Mike Malone described him as "very questionable," so look for Mason Plumlee to once again see big minutes. Danilo Gallinari also looks probable after missing Wednesday's game.
Nerlens Noel will not play tonight, so look for Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri to pick up some minutes. However, the Dallas Mavericks will get a return from J.J Barea tonight, so that could take away some minutes from Yogi Ferrell.
Nicolas Batum is probable according to the Charlotte Hornets' official Twitter feed, but they will be without Johnny O'Bryant III, who has been eating up minutes with the injury to Frank Kaminsky. This should once again force Cody Zeller to play huge minutes after playing 42 against the Miami Heat on Wednesday.
Dwyane Wade, Chicago Bulls
Brook Lopez, Brooklyn Nets
Brook Lopez will sit out Friday night with an ankle injury, which opens up a lot of playing time in the Brooklyn Nets frontcourt. Quincy Acy, Justin Hamilton and Trevor Booker are all candidates to see more minutes.
Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic
DeMarre Carroll, Toronto Raptors
Shaun Livingston, Golden State Warriors
Mirza Teletovic, Milwaukee Bucks
Brandon Rush, Minnesota Timberwolves
