KEY 2017-18 Fantasy Basketball - Seasonal Rankings

Use these rankings to decide who to draft and where to draft them. FA rankings are based on a players short term and long term value with upside and injury risk factored in. Use these with confidence during your draft and throughout the season.

AUCTION VALUES: These values are for leagues with a $200 auction budget. If you want a player, pay up for him. Numbers should be used as a guideline. Feel out the auction and look to nominate players you don’t want when major spending sprees are happening. Always pay up for the players you want. Before spending that extra dollar, look at depth charts to get starters.

Domantas Sabonis Headshot

Sabonis (ankle) is out Saturday against the Nets.

Sabonis suffered an ankle injury during Friday's game against Milwaukee. In Sabonis' stead, Thaddeus Young, Doug McDermott and Kyle O'Quinn could all see extra run.
4:05 pm (EST)
Mohamed Bamba Headshot

Updating a previous report, Bamba will be available for Friday's matchup with the 76ers, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

There was some miscommunication regarding Bamba's status, but he is injury free and available Saturday. He impressed in the Magic's season opener, but struggled in last night's lopsided loss to the Hornets. It will likely be a season filled with highs and lows for the rookie.
3:45 pm (EST)
Jimmy Butler Headshot

Butler is out for rest Saturday against the Mavericks, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Butler will get the night off on the second game of a back-to-back set. He played 36 minutes Friday against the Cavaliers, posting 33 points, seven boards, four steals, three assists and two blocks. In his stead, Anthony Tolliver and Luol Deng could see extra run.
3:01 pm (EST)
Cristiano Felicio Headshot

Felicio (ankle) will be active for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Kelly Crull of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Felicio sat out Thursday's opener due to a sprained ankle. Even though he's available Saturday, he may not be part of the rotation.
2:43 pm (EST)
Deandre Ayton Headshot

Ayton (ankle) was upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Nuggets after going through morning shootaround, Evan Sidery of The Bright Side and LockedOnSuns reports.

Ayton rolled his ankle Friday, but has avoided anything serious. During his debut, he posted 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes.
2:34 pm (EST)
Larry Nance Jr. Headshot

Nance (ankle), according to coach Tyronn Lue, was "moving around fine" at Saturday's practice, Spencer Davies of BBallInsiders reports.

An official status for Nance hasn't been given, but he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game until further notice. His potential return could mean fewer minutes for Ante Zizic.
2:30 pm (EST)
Sam Dekker Headshot

Dekker (head), according to coach Tyronn Lue, is "good" and avoided a concussion, Spencer Davies of BBallInsiders reports.

It appears Dekker will be available for Sunday's game against Atlanta, though an official confirmation has yet to be provided. More information may arrive after Sunday's morning shootaround.
2:27 pm (EST)
Deandre Ayton Headshot

Ayton (ankle) participated in parts of shootaround Saturday and remains questionable to play against the Nuggets, TJ McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Ayton continues to nurse a rolled ankle, but the Suns are hoping he'll be able to take the floor Saturday night. His participation in shootaround is an encouraging development, but a final call likely won't be made until closer to game-time.
2:13 pm (EST)
Courtney Lee Headshot

Lee (neck) will not play Saturday against the Celtics.

The Knicks' game notes list the wing as out with the same neck injury that's already cost him two games. Continue to consider Lee questionable on a game-to-game basis going forward.
2:02 pm (EST)
Gordon Hayward Headshot

Hayward is out for Saturday's game against the Knicks in order to rest his left ankle, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

The Celtics will understandably exercise caution with Hayward, who missed essentially all of last year due to a gruesome ankle injury, on an early season back-to-back. His absence could afford Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart expanded usage.
