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.

DeAndre Jordan Headshot

Jordan (finger) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks, Billy Reinhardt of Nets Daily reports.

Joradn was considered questionable as he continues to recover from a dislocated right finger, but he won't be retaking the court Sunday. Nicolas Claxton should continue seeing increased run behind starter Jarrett Allen.
4:55 pm (EST)
Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to personal reasons, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Irving won't be taking the court following the tragic death of his mentor Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and three others earlier Sunday. Bryant was 41 years old.
4:46 pm (EST)
Jae Crowder Headshot

Crowder (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Suns.

The veteran forward was considered doubtful with right knee soreness, so it's no surprise he won't be suiting up Sunday. Kyle Anderson and Solomon Hill are likely to see increased minutes in Crowder's absence.
4:37 pm (EST)
Marcus Smart Headshot

Smart (hand) is available to play Sunday at New Orleans.

The 25-year-old sustained the right hand sprain during Friday's win over the Magic, but his availability for Sunday never appeared in doubt as he was considered probable. Jaylen Brown (ankle) is also available, which could shift Smart back to the bench after starting four of the last five games.
4:31 pm (EST)
Jaylen Brown Headshot

Brown (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

The 23-year-old was sidelined the last two games with a right ankle sprain but will return to the court Sunday in New Orleans. Brown is averaging 18.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals through nine games in January.
4:28 pm (EST)
Jayson Tatum Headshot

Tatum (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans.

Tatum was considered questionable with the right groin strain but won't be available Sunday. Grant Williams received the start in his place Friday and could do so again versus the Pelicans.
4:24 pm (EST)
Myles Turner Headshot

Turner was ruled out for Sunday's game at Portland due to an illness, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.

Turner started the last 34 games but will miss his first game since mid-November because of the illness. Goga Bitadze is likely to enter the starting lineup in his absence.
2:36 pm (EST)
Ryan Arcidiacono Headshot

Arcidiacono is probable for Monday's game against the Spurs with right elbow discomfort.

The 25-year-old has been consistently listed on the injury report with the elbow issue in January, though he hasn't missed a game since Jan. 10. Arcidiacono is averaging 3.5 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 13.2 minutes off the bench this month.
2:27 pm (EST)
Jamal Murray Headshot

Murray (ankle), who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Rockets, was able to get in some light conditioning work on the court during warmups, T.J. McBride of reports.

The Nuggets haven't yet established a target date for Murray's return to game action, but his light activity on the court at least suggests that he's further along in his recovery from injury that either Paul Millsap (knee) and Mason Plumlee (foot), who are also out indefinitely. The coaching staff will presumably wait and see if Murray can increase his level of activity in practice Monday before ruling on his status for Tuesday's game in Memphis, but the point guard can be viewed as doubtful for that contest until the team provides an update.
2:22 pm (EST)
Russell Westbrook Headshot

Coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed that Westbrook would play Sunday against the Nuggets and sit out for rest purposes Monday in Utah, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

As anticipated, Westbrook's trend of sitting out one half of every back-to-back set will continue, even with backcourt mate James Harden (thigh) likely on track to miss both contests. With D'Antoni ruling Harden out Sunday and labeling him doubtful for Monday, Westbrook will likely be in store for an even higher level of usage than normal in the first game of the back-to-back set. Meanwhile, Eric Gordon will enter the starting five at shooting guard Sunday and should operate as the Rockets' primary scoring option Monday, assuming Harden joins Westbrook on the sideline.
