1/23/2017 Andre Iguodala, GS, G-F
The Warriors will rest Iguodala for Monday's game at Miami.

Analysis: Steve Kerr picked a good spot to give his veteran a breather in a matchup with the injury-riddled Heat. Iguodala has missed only one of Golden State's first 44 games, also getting a rest at Memphis on Dec. 10.
1/23/2017 Jahlil Okafor, Phi, C
Okafor (sore right knee) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

Analysis: The fallen-out-of-favor center had 12 points in 30 minutes starting in place of an injured Joel Embiid in Saturday's loss at Atlanta. With Embiid likely to miss two more games with a knee contusion, Okafor should get a further opportunity to showcase himself for a potential trade.
1/23/2017 Jonas Jerebko, Bos, F
Jerebko missed Saturday's game against Portland with an illness but is expected to be active for Tuesday's visit to Washington.

Analysis: The perimeter-oriented forward had appeared in each of the Celtics' first 42 games but hasn't made a major impact off the bench, averaging 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds.
1/23/2017 Joel Anthony, SA, F-C
The Spurs have signed Anthony to a 10-day contract after he was waived by them during the preseason.

Analysis: The nine-year NBA veteran last played with Detroit during the 2015-16 season. Anthony won two NBA titles as a reserve with Miami in 2012 and 2013. Anthony averaged 4.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in six preseason games with the Spurs this season. His career averages for the regular season are 2.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 471 games.
1/23/2017 Gerald Green, Bos, G-F
Green is dealing with an illness and will not make the trip for Tuesday's game at Washington.

Analysis: The journeyman guard is one of several Boston players battling a flu bug. Green has been used sparingly for most of the season, so this news carries little fantasy relevance.
1/23/2017 C.J. Wilcox, Orl, SG
Wilcox (left Achilles tendinitis) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Chicago.

Analysis: The third-year pro is an end-of-the-bench player who would hold minimal fantasy value even with the Magic dealing with a slew of injuries in the backcourt.
1/23/2017 Bradley Beal, Was, SG
Beal started Monday's win at Charlotte despite dealing with soreness in his left foot. He had 18 points.

Analysis: Owners should proceed with caution, however, as he's shot 31 percent from the field and missed 25 of 30 attempts from 3-point range over the last four games. The injury could explain the standout guard's recent struggles.
1/23/2017 Brian Roberts, Cha, G
Roberts is unavailable for Monday's game against Washington due to an illness.

Analysis: The third-string point guard has played a total of 65 minutes this season, so this will not affect the Hornets' rotation.
1/23/2017 Caris LeVert, Bkn, G-F
LeVert will be rested when the Nets host San Antonio on Monday.

Analysis: The rookie has been hot of late, going 14 of 18 from the field while averaging 13.3 points over his last three games. LeVert has an extensive history of injury problems, however, so the Nets will give him some time off on the team's third game in four nights.
1/23/2017 Kawhi Leonard, SA, G-F
Leonard is dealing with a sore hand and will not play Monday at Brooklyn.

Analysis: Gregg Popovich is most likely just giving his star forward a rest in advance of Tuesday's more difficult matchup at Toronto. Leonard's owners would surely like him to play, as he's coming off a career-high 41-point performance Saturday at Cleveland and is averaging a sensational 34.7 points over his last six games.
1/23/2017 Aaron Brooks, Ind, PG
Brooks will miss Monday's game against the Knicks with a sore right knee.

Analysis: The backup point guard is likely dealing with a day to day issue, though he was limited to only six minutes Saturday at Utah. Brooks would carry possible fantasy value only in the event of a Jeff Teague injury.
1/23/2017 Dragan Bender, Pho, PF
Bender is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves due to a sore right ankle.

Analysis: He only played four minutes Sunday after suffering the injury, but he basically has no fantasy value at this point anyway.
1/23/2017 Markieff Morris, Was, F
Morris had 23 points and eight rebounds Monday against Charlotte.

Analysis: He's scored in double figures in 16 straight games while averaging 15.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and shooting 50 percent from the field.
1/23/2017 Otto Porter, Was, SF
Porter Jr. had 14 points and 13 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season Monday at Charlotte.

Analysis: He's averaging 16.2 points over the last 15 games while shooting 52.6 percent overall and 48.2 from 3-point range.
1/23/2017 John Wall, Was, PG
Wall had 24 points and seven assists as the Washington Wizards beat the Charlotte Hornets 109-99 on Monday.

Analysis: He's averaging 24.3 points, 9.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds over the last six contests.
1/23/2017 Kemba Walker, Cha, PG
Walker scored 21 points Monday against Washington but had a second straight poor shooting performance.

Analysis: He's 13 for 41 (31.7 percent) over the last two contests after knocking down 49.3 percent of his attempts in the previous 12 games.
1/23/2017 Dion Waiters, Mia, G-F
Waiters' 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left capped his 33-point effort, and the Miami Heat beat Golden State 105-102 on Monday night to end the Warriors' seven-game winning streak.

Analysis: Waiters scored 33 points - his career high - for the second straight night. He finished with 95 on the Heat's 4-0 homestand.
1/23/2017 Ty Lawson, Sac, PG
Lawson had nine of his 19 points in the second quarter as the Kings beat the Pistons 108-104 to end a five-game skid.

Analysis: Lawson also had six assists. He's become a consistent enough force off the bench that he's useful in certain leagues.
1/23/2017 Reggie Jackson, Det, G
Jackson had 18 points and 11 assists in the Pistons' 109-104 loss to the Kings on Monday.

Analysis: Jackson is averaging 19.9 points and shooting 45.5 percent from 3-point range this month.
1/23/2017 Reggie Jackson, Det, G
Jackson had 18 points and 11 assists in the Pistons' 109-104 loss to the Kings on Monday.

Analysis: Jackson is averaging 19.9 points and shooting 45.5 percent from 3-point range this month.
