Chandler Parsons (rest) out of the Grizzlies' lineup on Friday

Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. What It Means: Parsons will sit out the front end of the Grizzlies' back-to-back set as he continues an overwhelmingly disappointing campaign. James Ennis is expected to start while Troy Daniels and Tony Allen should also see more run. Parsons is in the midst of the worst season of his career, as he averages 6.3 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.7 3-pointers on 36.7 percent shooting from the field. He's played in just 18 games and is receiving only 17.8 minutes...

Ty Lawson (ankle) a game-time call for Kings, says he will play

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (ankle) said he will play on Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. What It Means: The Kings wanted to see how Lawson looked in warmups, and it sounds like all went well. Garrett Temple should still carry value in standard leagues as Rudy Gay's (Achilles) injury opens up plenty of time in the rotation. numberFire's models expect Temple to play 33.4 minutes on Friday night while projecting him to record 10.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers.

Sean Kilpatrick, Trevor Booker taking breathers Friday for Nets

Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Sean Kilpatrick and power forward Trevor Booker will rest against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. What It Means: The Nets are opening up a back-to-back set, so Kilpatrick will get his first day off this season. He doesn't carry much fantasy appeal at this point. Brooklyn is dead-last this season in numberFire's NBA Team Power Rankings. Source: Rotoworld.com

Norman Powell starting for Raptors, Pascal Siakam to bench

Toronto Raptors shooting guard Norman Powell will start on Friday against the Charlotte Hornets while power forward Pascal Siakam moves to the bench. What It Means: The move is a result of Toronto being without both Lucas Nogueira (concussion) and Patrick Patterson (knee). Powell is averaging 14.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 3-pointers in 28.9 minutes through six games as a starter. Our models have Powell pegged for 8.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.9 3-pointers on Friday night, but that accounts for only 20.1 minutes of...

Houston Rockets power forward Montrezl Harrell will get the start against the Golden State Warriors on Friday night. What It Means: Harrell has plenty of DFS appeal with Nene out and Clint Capela working his way back from injury. Over the past three games, Harrell is averaging 25.4 minutes while putting up 13.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks. numberFire's algorithms have Harrell pegged for 13.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 27.1 minutes versus the Warriors.

Ryan Anderson will attempt to play through illness for Houston

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (illness) will try to play on Friday against the Golden State Warriors. What It Means: Anderson is expected to return following a two-game absence, but he may be limited after still feeling under the weather during shootaround. Our models expect Anderson to play 32.1 minutes versus Golden State, and project him for 14.9 points and 2.2 3-pointers with 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He ranks fifth on the Rockets and is tied for 58th in the NBA with a 1.9 nERD this season. Source: Rotoworld.com

Magic turning to C.J. Watson at shooting guard versus Milwaukee

Orlando Magic point guard C.J. Watson will start at shooting guard against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. What It Means: Watson gets the nod with Evan Fournier (foot, hell) and Jodie Meeks (thumb) both out. D.J. Augustin will receive more minutes while Mario Hezonja may also see some increased opportunity. Our models actually prefer Augustin for fantasy purposes on Friday night, and project him to record 11.7 points, 4.3 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 3.2 3-pointers in 27.2 minutes. He comes with a minimum $3,500 price tag on FanDuel. Source: Rotoworld.com
